Create a thread that breaks the very simple and easy-to-understand forum rules and it gets a lock.


the rules are pretty easy to follow. don't think I've had a problem ever since the new forums went live. just be ever so slightly constructive and don't call anyone an idiot and things go well.

You used to be able to simply infer that someone was an idiot but you can't even get away with that these days.

Probably for the best.

We need a sub forum that is strictly nsfw in terms of language. As long as there are no personal threats topics don't get locked. A warning page before entering would work.

Everytime you read this you are required to send 100 million isk directly to me.

Wrong. You conclude that based on x, someone is a cretin, rather than just calling them a cretin. Thanks for trying to be a smartarse instead of just looking stupid though.

The ISD can't prevent you from inferring anything, inferring doesn't require posting. Nice try though.

I find these forums are consistently moderated with sufficient leeway. You can have fun on the forums as long as you don't go out of your way to abuse your privelages.

Only 50% of them get locked?

I'm clearly an overachiever then.

They keep the forums from devolving into 4chan.

After reading quite a few lock comments, one can come to realization that there is an excuse for closing any thread CCP wants.

That is why, imo there are lot of posters who belittle others, hand out likes, and try their best to promote CCP.

Best advice, post what you want and see if it gets locked. Do not take it personally - CCP sure does and so do their fanbois.
If they didn't they would just move on to the next thread but some make it their mission to try and dominate their opinions and show that they are smarter than others.
Who care, it is a game that people pay to play.

I believe in being Pro-Active as Opposed to Reactive. Reactive tends to be more costly in time and money.

Maybe I should be a coward and use a forum alt to really drive home how relevant I am.

Doesn't require not posting either. Keep trying to stay relevant though. Edginess really works when you have the conviction to hide behind a forum alt.
