If it's OUR forum, please allow US to post things WE find amusing, interesting or entertaining, though not readily UNDERSTOOD by - certain people with certain POWERS.

If it's YOUR forum, and we're beginning to see it is fast becoming that, WE can easily just forego hitting this website, and posting to it as we aren't here to be YOUR lackeys - providing free content that meets your approval, and giving you useage stats that makes management smile.

Now. Quick with the lock so we can know this for certain, and thanks.

ISD mods are mad with power.

EVE is a game about spaceships and there's an enormous amount of work to do on the in-space gameplay before players (or developers) are ready to sacrifice it for a totally new type of gameplay - CCP Rise

Whomever's forum this may be, its certainly not yours.

"**CCP is changing policy, and has asked that we discontinue the bonus credit program after November 7th. So until then, enjoy a super-bonus of 1B Blink Credit for each 60-day GTC you buy!"**

Never forget.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious. That was so helpful.

Not entirely true. We pay a subscription, for that we get access to EVE and these forums.

You can also pay subscription and be banned from the forums entirely.

It has become rather obvious at this point.

It's CCP's Forum.
HTFU and tank the correct resistance for forum moderation tanking.
I hear they only agro on bad posting, so as long as you keep your posts good they will stay dormant and you can harvest tears to your hearts content off other people.
But one bad post issued from you, and you are ISDokkened

Its CCPs forum and you license the privilege to post here. That privilege can be revoked at any time for any reason.

Doesn't anyone ever read Terms of Service? and ISD's / CCP are pretty chill for the most part. Give me some mod powers and id clean this place right up.

Last I checked, this forum is owned by CCP and as the owners they can moderate it however they see fit.

And your thread should be locked - it serves no point other then making you look foolish.

I don't know why these kinds of threads keep cropping up..

Maybe the things you need to post about can be answered in the in-game Help channel? Lotsa people can also lend some of their time to chat with you, you just need to put out really.

Provided that it follows forum rules, why not?

Actually, it's my Aunt Nancy's forum. And she wants it back.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Wow, this is awkward.

I did some research and...whoo boy.

Turns out it really is THEIR forum. Literally owned by them.

Whudda thought?

I just undocked for the first time and someone challenged me to a duel. Wat do?

"Please wait a moment before reporting another post!"

Of course it is a forum we can post on but we own nothing and have no rights.

Either add content or go away.

Some posts here are not content and do nothing but display a powerful sense of entitlement and follow Godwin's Law.
