Imagine, if you will...

A forum solely populated by Solarwynds, Snowfox, Crepe and Metrohaha.

They spend their days making posts about how GREAT the game is going now that they have it all to themselves, and "Liking" each other's posts so they can achieve the almighty Trust Level 3 where they can post videos of their cats named after their favorite Blizzard Devs and "Squee!" over how CUTE they are...

This is... The Forum Zone...
2 greens and a Snowfox? I couldn't get much luckier than that! :)

They're scared.


It's not like they're dragging arguments about free speech and thought control or anything.

Oh, wait, they are?

Hrmmm...
The first day this was implemented in the Overwatch forums someone made a topic asking about peoples opinions on it. I posted, and I quote, "I don't like it, this won't go well". I was quickly temp-banned for my post.

A noticeable chilling effect occurred within days of Trust's social credit system coming to Overwatch. It continues to this day. Anything you couldn't show your grandma is gone. The people cheering for the ability to post memes are in for a rude awakening. There will be no memes of any real quality, because those will earn you a vacation, and they're unlikely to attain lvl3 let along keep it for long.
You yourself will be in an odd position unless they "auto 3" MVPs: A "Most Valuable Player" that is also apparently untrustworthy.
[ Anything you couldn't show your grandma is gone.
But why would a person post anything Grandma couldn't see?

My grandma was a one-legged alcoholic ex lady of the evening. Pretty sure the standard for what she would be okay with and what your grandma would be okay with vary greatly.

Okay? All that does is reinforce my question.

Point being, some folks have enough sense to not find every little thing offensive, others... not so much.

I doubt that there is anyone in the forums who finds "every little thing offensive" but there is absolutely no reason why people cannot be respectful to each other rather than hateful since the code of conduct for the forums requires it.

Honestly from my perspective, there are people here in this thread who were so offended that someone would be happy about something Blizz did that they came here just to be negative. That is a little thing to be offended about imo but such is life.

One of the ideals I attempt to live by is to not give offense to others. I don't seek discord for the sake of discord and I don't respect the need to belittle others. I forget that here on the forums sometimes but overall my posts reflect those beliefs.
I dont get what the big fuss is about the new forums. They look cool to me from what i just peeked at on the Overwatch forums.

Would be fantastic if the people you put on ignore couldn't see a thread you created or a post you make. If that isn't already a thing anyway.

It's amazing how fast everything is suddenly 1984, Fahrenheit 451, To Kill A Mockingbird, Brave New World, etc... when posters find rules are going to be enforced and trolling going to be curbed.


you KNOW i am not a troll.

it's not the quality of the forum set up, its the added censoring, the social score
( communist chinese invention ) and evidence that if it goes anything like overwatch's forum did, it will be a disaster for wow forum goers. expect to lose more subs.
I welcome the reduction in trolling and baiting threads, but worry about how easy it might be to abuse the report feature.

We wait and see I guess....
Thank you all for participating in this, my last thread on the old forums. I will still be posting until they say no more but no more new threads until new forums!!!!!
LOL, dont worry this stuff goes both ways. I love watching SJW antifa types wear their hammer and sickle shirts supporting socialism/communism. Its not like history has proven that these useful idiots arent the first to be purged. Im gonna log on the forums just to report all the SJWs that i can. over and over and over ad naseum!

I support your decision to do so.
If only we had a report button for the !@#$s and Commies back in the day, im sure we all wouldve lived in Eutopia! GG we couldve saved 100+ million lives.
im new to the forms but i think you rock solar you made me :)

Imagine having so little going on in life that this is what brings you joy.


There was a bright, sunny September morning one day about 17 years ago when I said, "Wow, everything is so quiet. It's boring. I wish something would happen."

So if you're taking joy in something minor, just be thankful.
You sound like a well adjusted person, Solarwynds.

It would be a blood elf saying this.


Hey now, not all us belves are vapid creatures who delight in the dismay of others.

Well said Mandrel.
