    PSU when will you act?

    This is one of many http://www.psu.com/news/9023#comments


    I enjoy playing MW2 and I bought the first map pack, im also thinking of buying the second map pack but I am sick of all the trolling and name calling because I and many others who bought the maps dont need to be insulted on a gaming forum that I enjoy being a part of.

    Here are a few quotes from that thread

    Your stupid of you buy this....
    I'm only saying what we're all thinking. Although judging by the sales of the first overpriced map pack, people are stupid

    lol again @ the ******s who buy this.

    Now does anyone see the trolling? why has this not been delt with? The people that buy these map packs deserve to be called idiots? stupid? ******s? Please sort this out as the forum is getting worse by the day.

    calling the map packs over piced and a waste of money is fair game. that's an opinion (a very justified opinion, reason me and 2 mates split the cost) but the stupid part ? meh is a bit trollish, although i do think buying it out right for yourself is a bit dumb

    Two things, and then I'm leaving this thread alone. lol... I'm disliked for the most part by the majority of the staff because of these very criticisms.

    First, did you report this stuff? The staff is not in a habit of actually browsing threads and dealing with violators. They also can't be expected to read EVERY thread in EVERY section. That's where the report button comes into play.

    They are simply not on enough to take care of the problems, or don't see these things as problems. There are at least 28 people on staff to take care of these problems, and that in itself is enough said.

    Please, one single staff member don't take offense to this because there are a few of you that actually take time to communicate with people that make reports, actually do your job when you're online, etc. The others.. meh.

    All I can say OP, until someone actually makes some changes in the staff, this issue will not go away.

    I agree but being called stupid, idiots and re-tards is not a "bit" trollish its 100% trollish.

    In the end of the day you shouldn't get offended by trolls that's what they are after; attention. Report and ignore.

    The staff should obviously remove posts like those because they add nothing to the topic at hand.

    I dont get why people have an urge to do that
    sure even If I feel it is over priced or I dont like the game I sure as hell dont have an urge to go call everyone who does like it an idiot its their choice and their money and they are clearly happy with their purchase and if they aren't well it doesnt affect you

    See this could be solved so simply if people didnt wanna argue for the sake of arguing

    If you could convince everyone to ignore the trolls, then it'd work perfectly. Unfortunately, once one person replies, the arguments starts, insults, etc., and the thread quickly spirals out of anything that resembles a meaningful discussion.

    Then the mods should act, dealing out infractions or close the thread. (This is my opinion of course)

    Well for us it might be but for the site it's a bad thing, if new people come here and finds the forum/site immature or not friendly they won't comeback and the site loses hits=income.

    You have to signup to post comments right? Then you mods should have tools provided to ban users from posting comments.

    banning a member does not stop them having access to the comments section. i wish it was different but its not so we cant do much about the comments themselves.

    People who troll about a certain price of a game or DLC ect, their just jealous just because you can afford it and they cant. Their just after attention, so just ignore them and report them. They'll soon get what they deserve.

    I bought the map packs because they looked cool, and they are. Not my fault the tons of "idiots" can afford them and the trolls can't.

    We have been discussing changing the comment system for frontpage news stories, but the forum upgrade does come first.

    Seeing that there isn't an option to report comments on the frontpage, please do feel free to PM your friendly neighbourhood mods. You can have a list of them here, including who is online now: http://www.psu.com/forums/showgroups.php

    As Fear pointed out early in this thread we can't read everything and always rely on your reports. Please use the system and don't assume someone else will report it.
