Are mods being overly strict now?

Hi there,

Please do not derail the thread with off topic and hostile replies. Further posts of this type will be removed and the player may be placed on probation.

Hey guys,

Thanks for sharing your feedback about moderation issues. I'm not able to discuss the actions we have taken in regards to specific players publicly so I'm not able to outline the reasoning behind some of the probations that have been mentioned here.

If you are concerned about any of your posts that have been moderated and would like to discuss these further, please feel free to contact us at support@grindinggear.com or alternatively you can message me privately and we will be happy to go over these with you.

There seems to be some mixed perspectives about the approach to moderation in this thread. I would be interested to know more about what you would like to see here in terms of moderation approach and how you feel these would benefit the forums and community as a whole.

If you have any ideas or feedback on alternative methods that you think could be used, it would be great if you would share these. Please keep your comments constructive and on topic and we will be happy to look into these further.

Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, I don't think that a forum without any moderation would be viable. A forum full of unfettered venting would inhibit players from acquiring any help or information that they were looking for on the forum as well as make it difficult for players to have practical discussions about the game and feedback they may have.

If you have any further suggestions please let us know.

Very well, general discussion without moderation. Every other forum is heavily moderated.
In general discussion, every topic is allowed. So no moving topics.

Sounds fair?


It's an interesting idea. However, if every topic was permitted to be posted there then it would somewhat render the other indexes redundant.

It's important to have separate indexes for a few reasons. The main reasons being that it makes it more accessible to players who are seeking particular information or assistance, and also so that the development team are able to quickly find feedback/issues that pertain to their job roles.

Fair enough, how about this. If a conversation has run it's course in general discussion, and is civilised, it gets copied to the correct subforum as a source of information for new players.

You also get a warning when visiting general discussion as a new user that the forum is for general discussion and is unmoderated. That, if they seek specific information, they need to consult the specific directory.


I can see where you're coming from. The issue we run into with offering any kind of unmoderated sub-forum or index is that there would inevitably be some kind of moderation that is required. Since the game is currently under an R16 rating by New Zealand Censorship Standards, this means that we could not permit any R18 content on the forums, such as pornography and other explicit content.

Even if we were to permit hateful comments or personal attacks in a specific allocated forum, it would still need to be moderated and could not be offered as a truly unmoderated section.
