    It's definitely more of a problem in the Xbox section.

    I can understand punishments for thread/topic derailment but only if there is a pattern of it. People just need to either start wearing diapers or suck it up. This is going to turn into a IGN forum if people don't start settling down. You got Xbox mods and PS mods over there and the Xbox mods will ban the PS forumers while the PS mods ban the Xbox forumers. This forum certainly doesn't need to be another IGN forum. ish

    I think that would help for sure. Though hopefully it doesn't make it trickle in to other areas.

    Indeed. It's barely a community in there anymore. I have spent more time in the PS sections lately. Traffic isn't heavy in the PS sections, but at least it's sane there.

    How can you know how the members of a site are without joining it and spending time on it? Secondly, why would someone who isn't interested in the PlayStation at all join a site that is designed around it?

    The first can't happen without the second (person has to be interested in the PlayStation to click that register button.) Xbox only sites DO exist. So I don't see your answer as the definitive answer that Justin was asking for.

    EDIT

    One thing this site can do to control trolls (at least new ones) is ask people that register what their preferences are and based on those selections give access to the appropriate sections.

    Another forum use to do this (in the beginning) and it worked quite well. Ofcourse that doesn't stop someone from going into their profile and adding Xbox as a preference to gain access but you don't have to advertise that!

    I'm pretty sure I could guess once and be right about what he's referring to.

    The fiasco with Cuguy being demoted/reassigned and the staff members that followed him out the door. (And perhaps with that Ghost being made Community Manager and the new staff being pulled in)

    Yeah, kind of had a feeling it might've had something to do with the recent staff changes. I'm not going to comment on that because, well, you know my stance on the matter and I really can't be bothered to get into an argument at this time of night. I would say I agree with Lethal, mind.

    Me personally haven't been on here like that in a month now, but I do know derailment happens at some point during thread discussion. I mean I'm a member of other sites, and they don't get this anal about it(Well some did for good reason).

    Trolling on the other hand if that leads to derailment I understand, but if it's regular get off topic then back onto topic at some point. I just say that shouldn't be a big deal.

    I think a big issue is dredging up some of the most.. Insane stuff on the internet to use as a hope to cling on too, for whatever reason. Like misterxmedia.

    This kind of reasoning...

    Perfect Gaf post about how it makes me feel:

    I think the trolling comes with the territory since it is a Playstation forum, and so any and all Playstation praise is naturally more regarded. I usually just ignore trolling, report it, or I just put them on ignore to clean up the screen of all posts I deem unwarranted.

    I don't want the Xbox section gone. I want PSU to be the best it can be and I think getting rid of that section is counter-productive to that end. It's like...you don't make the best smorgasbord by removing some of your selections. While PSU is a Sony centric site, I think it's important to accommodate other sections and the idea of removing that part of the forums never really crossed my mind.

    The ideal solution is that people detach themselves from their console of choice. I read an article about the psychological matter of 'self-connected brands' awhile ago--I posted this ages ago but I'll post it again:

    The question of the new research is this does this egocentric bias extend to brands to which we are loyal? How much do we internalize our brand choices? The researchers found that subjects would continue to rate their favorite brands (what they call self-connected brands) highly, even after being presented with negative information about those brands. They interpreted a brand failure as a personal failure, and engaged all their defense mechanisms to protect the image of the brand to which they had identified.
    I think this is a strong contributor to the problems. People take this stuff WAY too personally and when a company that someone identifies themselves with isn't doing well, or when someone produces a negative opinion on it, that person becomes overly defensive. This is why we get members who are notorious for posting FUD articles (on both sides). Once this attachment is broken, people wouldn't get so riled up by negative opinions. As I said though, this is the ideal solution, but probably not the realistic one. I'm a fan of approaching problems proactively at the root and not reactively with punishment but the former requires a measure of intellect and honest self-reflection. If certain forum members could grow up a little and start respecting the site more by adjusting their behaviour to be more conducive things would be a lot cooler here.

    In any case, thanks all for your thoughts and ideas. The team will keep all of your opinions in mind as we continue to refine what we're doing here and we will have discussions based on what was brought up here.

    I like to look at it this way. The company that people regard so highly doesn't regard you as highly. You are just another sale to them.

    Exactly, all this loyalty bull$#@! is beyond retarded. I'm not attached to Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo. Make good games and I'll buy them.

    Same here. That's why I own all the systems and praise and bash them all.
