Same here. I sent PMs to all the mods a couple of times, but no one ever responded when I recently went through a period of constantly getting thread-banned, posts deleted and/or warnings and it was for things so far less egregious than what others were posting. It was like some mod had it in for me and I wanted to know what the problem was.

I had one where an extreme Sony fanboy tagged me and called me a loser troll in an argument, he was having with someone else, I had nothing to do with it. I responded, "that's rich coming from one of the biggest loser trolls". My post got deleted with the reason "Grow up" His post never got deleted and it's not like whoever deleted mine didn't see his since I quoted it in my post.

Agree with this, I see phases were a lot of Sony fans get banned then it seems to be Xbox fans get banned. Just need consistency.

I see far worse than I ever written and they just seem to go on and on.

Sometimes it’s ok to disagree on something.

I do think the mods should be more contactable over things but overall it’s good place most of the time

though i do agree that this guy shouldn't be banned (or if he is at least temporarily)
This is all just some temporary anger and after a while it'll all blow off

But I know no action was taken comparable to me. I was thread banned and some note on the post. The other person wasn’t. They actually replied to the post that thread banned me.

So my complaint was a double standard. You can’t hide behind not discussing others moderation when the moderation is publically shown like in this case.

For some reason the tag is gone but you can still see people posting about it.
Here it is.

It probably coincides with news in the gaming world and warriors overreacting to news they don't like or some such nonsense. I'm not sure there is much mods can do as far as being "consistent" with Xbox or PS fans being banned. They have to react to shitty posts as they happen.

Could you learn the mods to show maturity in their reasons to delete posts instead of doing warring them selves?

Also, being able to get a little dialogue if it's needed?
My bear in the big blue house throwing rubbish in the bin gif was deleted on the 11 new psvr2 games thread, as trolling sony, at the time I thought it was a perfect example of what reflected my thoughts on the psvr2 game line up & it seemed the majority agreed even fans of the playstation platform here, from looking at who liked the post, I've also used exact same gif before for Xbox games with gold (what didn't get deleted)

I'm not overly fussed over it, as on reflection I can understand why someone would think it might've been trolling as not everyone looks at or views my post history & realises I love pretty much everything :)

I don't think mods can realistically view every users post history, so sometimes decisions can come across as a little unfair/under handed, without malicious intent.

I think a little bit off feedback would help users understand what they said or did wrong.

But I can imagine writing feedback/explanations to everyone would be time consuming too.

You really have no self-awareness. When do you not say anything about PlayStation (almost always negative)? lol
I've been warned once maybe twice and had a post edited. Shock horror it was justified in the cold light of day.

Seems like there's been a reduction of militant trolls on the green and blue teams and I think the rest of us are better for it.

Sometimes mods strike at the littlest of ironic remarks at break neck speeds and then… Like in the 7900 thread where blatant warring gets a free pass. 🤷‍♂️

Chants:
Equal consideration in people moderation!

I just come here to say silly things and then leave i don’t even check back. One time i had gold and didn’t even know it. I just enjoy being cool and doing dumb things, this is what’s important in life

I can't see why writing "your post got removed because xx" instead of "your post got removed because you are a fanboy".

It doesn't tell anything about what you did wrong.

Did you see my picture?


I posted a thread about Sony, it got merged and the cocky mod blamed me on console warring because I posted a thread about Sony.

When I made a post about Microsoft losing 100 to 200 usd for every sold xbox, then it went through without any warring comment, because I know made criticism towards xbox.

But anything negative about Sony and I expect to get a mod comment because I am not allowed to do so.

The bans page is a treasure, don't mess that up. :messenger_beaming:

The reasons they come up with are A+ stuff, IMO.

I'm not talking about the ban page. I like to read as well.

I'm talking about when you get a notification from a mod.

Theres times when you think "yeah OK I went a little too far" and then you make a legit post but they see you as a green rat and don't care about the context and just removes it.

You admit your posting history is probably the reason you got that message then?

Weirdest thing is that when my posts go missing I typically don't get a notification, I just notice that they are gone. 🤷‍♂️

But it's not that big of a deal to me. I'm just enjoying the community provided by the board, their house, their rules and all that. If moderation got bad (which I haven't seen yet, even though I will bait and war in threads quite a bit), I'd just find something better to do.

A thread already existed and your thread was merged. That happens all the time. Your MS thread did not already exist. Are you really trying to pretend that was due to it being "criticism towards Xbox"?

As far as the mod comment, your post history echoes the mod's sentiment.

No, not really.

I've been a member for five years. I was a cringy clown at times, but as I grown older and realised I've been struggling with mental deseases in real life (found out 1 year ago that I got bipolar type 2 and emotional personal disorder), I've worked with myself as a human and tried to become a better man after knowing why my struggles were because of this.

Fast forward today, I don't take Gaf seriously at all. Im not favoring any part. Ive been positive recently about Sony pushing 120 fps, I've been positive about gamepass.

I've said I don't care about cod being exclusive, as it wouldn't affect me, I just want it on gamepass. It doesn't affect me if it will be exclusive or not because idgaf about exclusive wars lists.

I've made silly meme jokes about it, where I made a among us meme about Ryan making an emergency meeting, and dead body discovered after CMA didn't care. It got removed calling me a fanboy. It was a stupid joke and people laughed at it.

But I am a nasty green rat and therefore I am not allowed to make silly jokes.
As an example, me and Ass of Can Whooping Ass of Can Whooping ate disagreeing on alot, agreeing on small things.

I really enjoy reading his posts and discussing with him, because even though it can get a little heated we can make it to a fun thing where we can laugh at each others jokes.

But where he can post funny memes, he gets away with it. Don't misunderstand me, I think it's great because I laugh at them too.

But when I do it, I get judged by a post history that's several years old.

It's like having been sent to jail (I've been banned a lot I know), and after have made your sentenced you still get judged years later even though you have improved.

Sometimes the mods are just a little too serious and sees hatred in things that's just for pure fun to make people smile in a stupid argument.

Edit - I once got banned for a week because I posted his avatar where I quoted him lol. He had a crying face with a PlayStation hat and I posted it, gave me a ban.

Also this is not something grudge over Ass of Can Whooping Ass of Can Whooping ,it was solely to say that there's difference in what people are allowed to do.

This isn’t kindergarten.

Tighten up- it’s really not that hard.

Doesnt need recognition
I don't know, always seems to be the trolls doing most of the crying about getting banned or moderated.

You win some you lose some in the troll game, maybe trolling just isn't for you if you are so thin skinned and sensitive.

At some point I reckon it's hard to distinguish between trolling and sincerity and everything in between.

Yeah I get what you mean but at times I see so pretty serious warring from both sides that nothing happens to. You prob right about maybe when it’s certain news. You only have to read the activision post to see how bad it can get from both sides

Maybe he’s had his name changed over the years as he aged, maybe he was once younggamer, then oldgamer, now he’s oldergamer. Like Lil Bow Wow to just Bow Wow lol
Is it possible to change your name on GAF? Oh wow is lil bow wow still going? I remember seeing one of his songs on a Saturday morning show when I was little watching diggit, if anyone else remembers that? I think Fearne Cotton was a lot of our first crushes haha


Also looked it up out of curiousity, turns out the other presenter is now in prison for 9 years after killing two people (car crash under the influence off cocaine)

They aren’t running Xbox fans out at all. I recall the same argument when major PS posters were banned. I don’t think the platform of choice is the issue.

My only takeaway from this is that I feel console warring here kind of mirrors Sony and MS position on the market. One is a leader and the other is not. This gives Sony enthusiasts some degree of confidence and bravado and my observation is that Sony people tend to cross the line on the offence and xbox people do that on defence. There are exceptions obviously, but I remember going to one of the main GoW:R threads and there was barely any trolling, snark or recycled GIFs and yet you only need to go to the very first page of any xbox thread and it will be there, guaranteed. As a gamer who prefers xbox for certain reasons it is slightly amusing at first and then just gets boring after a while. I’d like to think I have self-control to avoid engaging but I understand if people don’t. So, my advice, my fellow green rats, is to ignore baiting and It is going to be fine

They don't seem to have trouble leaving snarky feedback, so I doubt it's the effort. The bias is real here. Every Xbox fan feels it, and every PS laughs and denies it because they are the beneficiaries of it. It has been this way for a long time.
