Earthbound is infitely better than the majority of the topics on this forum.

Also, I really hate the "i need a free mmropg to play" topics.

That's asking too much of the BBS idiot kids whose IQ is the equivalent of both "DURR" and "i can count to potato."

I'll probably make a help image to at least point out where the search bar is.

Just another *chan meme turned shitty due to overuse.

Trollface only works on imageboards, since you can do picture only replies there.

While we are on the subject of shitty posters and trolls...

This is really getting annoying. I don't mind elitist fanboys, regulars with a golden tongue (looking at you SMC,) but the annoying idiot low-post users seem to get it in their heads to post badly, then troll this forum.

And we all thought Blaze-Heatnix was bad?

i like the way you're thinking.
You should also delete topics if the titles don't have caps.
it would make the forum look neater :)

instead of "call of duty modern warfare 2"

Tell them to remake it as "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" >:(

Damn straight we do.

Even General seems to be getting better quality threads nowadays.

But I love some of the ideas people are putting forward. Hopefully it'll clean the place up a lot, even if it does mean slower traffic.

I hope that this thread can float around the front page for quite a while so anyone that wants to post a topic reads it. I do say that you and the other mods do a good job in keeping these forums clear though.
I go to click a thread that just seems like shit just by the title "which game should I get?", and guess what? One of you deleted it.
Keep up the good work and I agree with most of the points there.

UPDATE!

Even though I've already been deleting threads like this, on and off, from this point on I'm going to just go ahead and delete the vast majority of them. There are two types of threads that are far too common, and you could find much better places to get your answers from. These threads are:

"What game should I get?" and "How do I beat this?"

No more making threads about how you have an Xbox 360/PS3/Wii and need a new game for it, but you aren't sure what to get. Make your own decisions. Now, if you can make a thread looking for advice for a new game, and it's well thought out and somehow different than all the others, I'll leave it alone. But if it's "I have an Xbox 360 and I own GoW2, CoD4, Mass Effect, and Fallout 3, what should I get?" I'm going to delete it, because you will just get a bunch of responses saying the same old, same old bullshit. Go ask that shit on a video game forum, or look up review websites to figure the answer out yourself. If you're posting in the VG forum I'm sure you know as much as anyone else what games are out and what games are supposedly good, so these threads are just becoming an easy way to add to your post count.

No more threads asking how you get past a part in a game. Look up a walkthrough or ask on gamefaqs. Once again, if it's well thought out and somehow different than the rest, I'll leave it alone. But if it's, "Hey I'm on chapter 3 in Dead Space and I'm stuck, what do I do!?" It's getting deleted. Most of the time you can find answers from gamefaqs. If you can't find the answer, ask on their forum where you'll have a much better chance at getting your answer.

Chances are a lot of people will overlook this post since it's on page 2, and a lot of people probably haven't even read this thread to begin with, but tough shit.

The important thing is that it's here and in writing. At least now people can't say you didn't warn them.

I know you're not supposed to ask things of mods, but would it be so difficult to put a ban on "Which console should I buy?"/"Which console is better?" threads?

We all know how they end, with fanboy guts and pride splattered all over the place, and it eventually being locked or deleted in the end. It'd be nice to have a proper ban on the predictable topics so we can have a tad more originality in the threads on the BBS.


And if we run outta bullets? Heh, baby, they're gonna wish we hadn't....

If I put some time into making a thread that gave information on the three newest generation of consoles to help people looking into getting a new console but aren't sure which one they want more yet, would it be locked for being essentially a "Which should I buy" topic?


You should totally add me on one of my various game accounts:

If there is thought put into it, it can stand out amongst other threads similar to it, and people show interest in it, I really don't care what the subject is (as long as it pertains to video games.) Like I mentioned above, you can make threads asking what game you should get, as long as it's more than just "HEY WHAT GAME SHOULD I GET?"

I mean, give people something to entice them. I understand all you're doing is seeking advice on a new game, but the shit gets boring to read.

Well, that's funny. I don't recall a thread like that for some weeks now. And I have been lurking around here a lot.

Oh! Hey, I spend a lot of time in this forum and can I suggest something? Keep a lookout for Sonic threads or anything of the like, those end terribly, it's the same shit and the same bunch of flies flying about them.

And by anything of the like, I mean similar franchises, some discussion is alright, but when people start posting i.e "X charactrur sux" or "STOP HATIN ON X THING" 16 times in a row, it really get depressing.

Can I make a thread just for heated, nonsensical debate and jokes?
We could delete it after a week or so. I just think it would be fun.
