So I go to work for a few hours and come back and there’s a Thread about Moderation that’s closed immediately before I even get to it. I can’t say I’m gonna reply to this immediately either because I’m a sleep soon but I want to address the scenario because I never got to and hope to make an overall impact on moderation of the forums. For some quick backstory some dude is talking about how disgusted he is at new Skaarf skin because “not masculine” then some other dude says “fragile masculinity” then it gets flagged then me-dude ask “why?” Then that post was flagged then a separate thread was created and closed immediately.
I want to say that the second dude’s comment on first dude was not flag worthy because
- It was barely offensive
- first dude was being dramatic acting like Skaarf having a funny skin was the end of the world for Skaarf to have that skin and for any “masculine” hero to have a soon as such would ruin the hero. His quotes for example. [quote=“Aducard, post:6, topic:3668, full:true”]
Ew. I would be embarrassed to be killed by a player having this skin. A Blackclaw skaarf skin would be great, instead they do more innocent and embarrassing skins in a game about killing each other over and over again. Prehistoric Glaive FTW
I have no problem with his opinion of the skin but second dude’s reaction to him was justifiable for first dude’s show and like I said before it was hardly aggressive.
I also believe if we’re not able to comment on each other’s flaws then this forum is not for any form of discussion but for only for people’s opinions. People have their opinion and no one can say anything about it. “Kensei is under powered”- person —> Ohp! someone else says " that’s a funny joke lmao " Ohp! that person gets flagged for being “offensive”. I think this is over the top. Now there is a limit yes but if we open ourselves up to being too sensitive then appropriate actions should be taken of course. I’m just sayn’ though everyone is entitled to their own opinions but there’s also people who are right and people who are wrong and some people need to be told they’re wrong and if someone has a little humor in doing so spare them, but like I said there’s a limit but second dude’s comment on first dude didn’t reach the limit. But whateves.
TL;DR: mods should be a little more lenient
