Possible player-moderator to clean up the forums.

Recommended Posts

I think they just need to tighten up the registration process and how many back to back posts you can make within a short amount of time.

Never a truer word written! If they limit the timeframe between posting threads alone, that can limit the spamming problem a bit.

I just came outta 80+ hours of Red Dead Redemption 2 Simon, give me a six shooter and let me clean up this town... 

I've reacted too much already today but man did I literally laugh at loud at that!

We've set up as much stuff as we can. Ad for player moderators I'll float the idea later today. The issue is that manually deleting all the content will take a long time, whereas admin access can just clear it instantly. I'll be talking to my folks and see what we can do

On the pc forums they made it so where you have to actually own the game to create topics  in the main sections except bug reports (You can still comment I think). Maybe down the line it can be the same here, to counter bots and fake accounts.

Sounds like the only restriction really is to block how many topics can be started back to back but I dont think that would be a solution because they could just make new accounts like they did. Really I think this is one of those things that we will just have happen. Most of them probably are not even bots but real people just spamming them so anti-bot measures wont do anything.

We're going to have to empower the community.

Maybe some sort of report system, if your post's get reported x amount of times, your muted until admin's can look at what you were posting? Something of that nature maybe?

Oh the irony... Apparently a select few ruined what was a great feature for the community. The auto moderation system is still in place, we just need more of the communities help to deal with the Chinese spammers. If everyone took a minute when they showed up and reported a few of their first posts we could probably take care of them.

Oh I know, I had read through it all, but at the end of the day, enough people speak up about the idea having actually been good it stands a chance of returning. Maybe not that exact system but one like it. Clearly with the issues we had with those spam bots, the forums are lacking a little supervision. Now that's nobody's fault but our own for ruining the system we did have.

However, just because we broke it, doesn't mean we can't come back together as a community and fix it either. These kind of games live and die by the community if we don't stand united in some aspects of how to moderate stuff then this game is doomed before we even get to the beta.

I agree on most points but I wouldn't rate the game based off some actions on the forums. The games going to be great and a ton of fun. I think everyone's just getting antsy, like near the end of a long car ride. ;)

I'm pretty sure if this forum implodes from people signing up in droves, they'll flex the idea of a moderator team again. In the meantime, we just have to work with what we have.
