This community is for gaming.

Posts about other topics will not be permitted.

I advise the use of c/shithole, which will be included on feeds, for content which does not fit anywhere else.

I do like the banner that they made for this community. If we get nothing else from their "visit", I think that we can adopt it as our own.

This. Some of those posts were NSFW. Perun should lose his admin status.

Perun should lose his admin status.

Even giving benefit of the doubt in that he wasn't actually being intentionally hostile, he's too fucking stupid and inept to deserve any power.

I don't think he's stupid, I think he purposefully wanted to ruin communities here and he was aiming at less active communities to start with.

Moderators working against the will of the community is what ruined reddit.

There is an inherent problem with the "mods = gods" forum structure. Even if all the mods start out good, they degenerate in quality just like inbred royals because the only people that get mod positions after the site is up are no-life losers that do nothing but sit on forums every waking hour. Basically the kind of person optimal to be a mod from an admin perspective (spods on forums all day) is generally unsuccessful and powerless in real life, and has no concept of how to actually manage a community or really do anything besides emotion driven banhammering.

It's not just reddit-likes, it's any forum where mods are selected by other mods and have basically absolute power over users.

The problem is you get people who want to use power.

The best mods are people who fucking hate the responsibility.

This is, unfortunately, completely true of politicians and business managers as well.

Site permissions are akin to a feudal system (High Justice, Low Justice, etc).

Can't be avoided since that's how things are done, hut dammit, the people are the key to a good or bad site....

2
AbleistSL 2 points ago +2 / -0

The structure of a site is: owner<assigned admins<mods<trusted users<registered users<anons.

The owner gets angry if the assigned admins/mods start misbehaving as they are needed to keep things under wraps, while everyone else can't do much damage and can simply be suppressed if things get out of hand.

I kinda think this is one of those "well we've always done it that way" problems that no one really even thinks about.

"Karma" started as a moderation mechanism, I believe the whole idea comes from either Slashdot or Kuro5hin (a slashdot spinoff). It was supposed to be a way for forums to largely moderate themselves, and on the Slashdot-derivs where it's fairly sophisticated with layered community moderation it seems to work - if you look at the comments it's not the pure laser focused echo chamber that reddit comments are. Slashdot has a different model in that it's more a news site with a comment section, but I think overall people in the redditverse, probably younger types, don't even realize more advanced moderation systems than reddit even exist.

People think the only choices are arbitrary and capricious mods in the vein of Reddit/SomethingAwful/NeoFAG/etc or the as near to anarchy as legally possible style of chans, but much like in politics there are a lot of less discussed third positions with merit.

I think he's stupid:

c/gaming is pretty dead and empty streaming and gaming go hand in hand. You are welcome to use this community as your own, so long as you also allow all other gaming posts.

You don't say your evil plan out loud unless you're as fucking retarded as u/Perun.

AbleistSL 2 points ago +2 / -0

Generally, politics should only be allowed if it's some regressive leftist bullshit attacking gaming or recommendations for boycots.

All other political bullshit should just go to the politics communities like kia2 and the Donald.

If people wanted to talk about things such as realism in relation to gaming, it can exist on both the gaming communities and related communities, such as people talking about weapon realism in gaming could also talk about this stuff in the firearms communities here.

80960KA 2 points ago +2 / -0

Oh this had between little and nothing to do with politics. Dumbshit mod sent a sub of like streamer troll fanboys that do nothing but crapflood over here, because "DURR PEOPLE STREAM GAMES ITS THE SAME THING DURRR I'M PERUN AND I'M A TOTAL RETARD DURRR".

AbleistSL 1 point ago +1 / -0

People should have never posted content from the streams unless it was directly related to gaming.

Unrelated stream content was not the only thing that was being posted if I recall...

Bluestorm83 5 points ago +6 / -1

I choose to picture him as the character "C," leader of the Imperial Liberation Front, from the first Trails of Cold Steel game. So yes, he wears a cape, and a pretty slick helmet to disguise his appearance and face, in his quest to end Imperial Expansionism via Terrorism and Communism.

C is a complicated character, so while his goals can be noble at times, at other times he's a complete and utter fool and bastard.

Great cape and helmet, though.

chez_blunts 0 points ago +1 / -1

Really? It seems to me that this community, like all gaming communities, is about arguing about gaming. Why the fuck do "gamers" love to argue so much? Why is it so much easier to find someone to "disagree" and argue with you than it is to find someone who agrees with you and have a discussion with you based on those agreements? And even if they do agree with you, they'll be sure to find something to argue with you about. And I don't even believe that some of these people actually disagree. I think they're just contrarians who pretend to disagree because they love to argue for whatever reason. If I wanted to argue all the time, I'd get back together with my ex.

Because there are a lot of games, and most of them are different. By bouncing a dislike off of someone's forehead, you get a reaction. If it's a good one, then you get a little shot of dopamine.

No joke. About a decade ago I was dating a girl who was a major dog lover (she owned several dogs had a side job as a dog trainer). I got her a T-shirt that said "Ya like dags?" as a gag gift.

Imagine that your house burns down. I, your neighbor who you have never really even had a conversation with, invite you to stay at my house until you get back on your feet, because of our common humanity.

Now, you could have my guest room all to yourself, and be on your best behavior until you see what sort of home I keep, and fit in accordingly, and become my friend. Instead, I open my front door the very next day and two of the first things I see are a naked dude, and another dude with giant tits out in my face.

To make matters more accurate in this case, you were given permission not by me, but by someone else who lives here, and no matter what he told you he can't say "By the way, ignore the rules on the right side there that say no NSFW, no sex, Gaming Only."

Sorry that you've lost the refuge you were offered, but this was like trying to take in a stray, dirty dog that dad felt sorry for, but it projectile diarrhea shit all over the fucking livingroom, bit mom's leg, and tried to hump my sister all before dad could get done saying "We can clean him up and train him and make him part of the family."

We didn't burn this bridge, YOU guys did.

PyramidsAreBoring -8 points ago +2 / -10

I tried to get everyone on the same page by establishing ground rules before they invaded yesterday in order to avoid this. Instead all I got was replies like “Why should there be rules? That isn’t free speech” and “Doxxing should be allowed”.

I genuinely find it hilarious now seeing people act confused. We (they) came into this with exactly zero plan and assuming it was a lawless wasteland.

I don’t think the hate Perun is receiving is warranted, mind you.

TechParadox 15 points ago +16 / -1

I don’t think the hate Perun is receiving is warranted, mind you.

Really? Really? He dumped an entire sub's worth of refugees on an unsuspecting subwin without ever announcing it to the sub, much less polling the sub to see if the members were cool with it. How would you feel if your landlord decided to let a bunch of migrants stay in your living room without asking you first, and they proceeded to put hardcore porn on the TV and shit on your rug?

-11
PyramidsAreBoring -11 points ago +1 / -12

Weird, here I was thinking that they and you alike were here rent free. Mighty analogy you’ve just made.

-8
Bluestorm83 -8 points ago +3 / -11

I don't either, I think that Perun had hoped that in the interim they'd see the rules and behave like guests in the house, that perhaps some would stay here to talk about gaming after they got their own place, and that maybe we'd make some friendships.

Now, clearly that did not happen, and Perun needs to take a long look at how he screwed up and learn from it, but I don't want him banned or de-modded or whatever. Just to recognize that the situation did not play out very well.

And there is free speech, on Communities.win as a whole. That's the difference between this place and Reddit. Reddit says "You can not have a sub to discuss your horrible Conservatism, Patriotism, Christianity, or Sanity!!!" Communities here says "You can have a sub to talk about whatever the fuck you want, just don't kick in the door of anyone else's sub and demand that they become YOU."

And honestly, doxxing should be allowed... but nobody should do it. I live by the words of the Creed. "Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted" is an exhortation to wisdom. Don't hold so tightly to your dogma that you will never consider other information, and don't think that just because you can do something that it's the right thing to do.

And bam, just like that, I've brought it right back to Gaming. Rule 1 is appeased.
