    The people you are referring to have both a 360 and a PS3. The problem lies where certain people cannot take the fact that these members might like the 360 a tiny bit more.

    i would even go as far to say most members who are active on this forum are multi-console owners.

    Having fans of the 360 isnt the problem, as there have been many over the past 5 and a half years since i joined, and the forum has been active within this period.

    More than a tiny bit in most cases, and thats the problem. Doesn't help when the staff sides with them with their trolling a lot of the time too.

And if someone does, there are more civilized ways of dealing with them than telling them to $#@! off to some other site. The only thing you can do is to report them . After that, it's up to the people who run the site to deal with unpleasant members. Not ours.

    Maybe multiconsole owners, myself included, should just go to a different forum where they can express multiple views and just leave this site for the PS3 only information. It'd get alot more boring around here though.

    OT: I don't think this is the reason why new members aren't staying around. I personally think it's because this generation has been loosing a bit of steam
    I meant to say pretty much the same thing. More platforms = wider range of opinions.

Everyone is allowed here no matter if people think they are "idiots" or not, as long as they follow the rules they are as welcome as anyone else here.

    its just a sad case when it comes down to childish arguments over the ps3 fans and 360 fans.. At the end of the day we can have an adult logical argument over info and for it not ending up in He said this and he said that, and name calling

    This is when the communication fails and all logic is lost in a cloud of childish acts

    I think mynd is the only member here that doesn't have a ps3, that is active. You're not missing anything. The claims that are being made in here about 360 fans trolling and are the main problem are completely baseless. No one is more active than I am, post wise, and reading threads; if it were happening I'd know about it.

    i am a 360 fan, but i also post in the ps3 section. I never cause any offence in their because i post in threads that are of games that are on both consoles.. But some times i post in the HOME THREAD and GT5 thread, because i like to get in on the conversation

    it seems its the ones that are so passionate about the ps3 section, that they feel the 360 fans are hijacking it and turning into something they do not like or want. Just an opinion i have

    And like Dave said, most of the time the mods side with them, so in most cases absolutely nothing gets done.

    The main reason I don't like newbies though is that these days the majority of them are spammers, idiots...or the worst (IMO) the people that sign up to join one of the site's competitions just to dissapear once it ends.

    a point id like to make is if for example i need help on a certain thing i'd post a thread or post in one in the topic of the thread only for it to be completely ignored whilst their have been 90-100 views which i think is a big factor that drives people away if i'm not the only person this happens to.

    I dont agree with you on that, at least not from where I stand. I can't speak for all staff and what motives they have, but console has nothing to do with who I infract.
    One thing I can tell you is that from my time here on staff I have been called a Sony fanboy and a MS fanboy, its all prospective if you ask me. When a ps3 support gets an infraction, everyone says it because we side with the 360 fanboys, and the same is said when we infract a 360 supporter. This problem has nothing to with consoles, lets be honest here, this has to do with two groups of people that have no respect for each other, and are intolerant of anyone saying negative things about their console of choice. You guys do know that just because someone says something negative does not mean they are $#@!ing trolling, grow thinker skin, put people on your ignore lists and just move the $#@! along.

    EDIT: this is not being directed at one person, so Aaron please don't think this is totally directed at you.

    Actually that's just spambots viewing the thread mostly, I do sometimes take a look at threads where people need help and if I can will try to help them, but sometimes I haven't got a clue either.

    Happens a lot to me. Maybe it's because I'm in a completely different time zone and when I post everyone is away and when they do come back, they've moved along with their regular threads and the newer threads get sidelined.

    Very well said.

    Ag and I have the same outlook on who deserves infractions. Honestly, he and I are literally on the same page with how things should be.

    Exactly - I think that is the main point. Some people are just too sensitive when someone says something they don't agree with. We need to remember that not everyone is going to have the same view on games/systems. Forget it and just move on, no biggie.

    I visit these forums at least twice a day every day. I don't post very often because people don't like opinions. I didn't join to argue with someon about how I feel about exclusives or debate if xbox live is worth it. I joined to talk about what I like about gaming, but far to often the discussions change from what we like about a specific product to defending why we like it and acting like the opposing view is wrong. I get that people are passionate, but sometimes they get to passionate.
