Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Tomahawk, Stop locking topics.

H4RuQ47HRgS1fXBLXJeXPA.png

Apart from the really spammy ones that can be moved to graveyard, I don't see the reason to lock most of the topics. You have power, there is no need to be using it when it doesn't have to be used.

Re: Tomahawk, Stop locking topics.

there WAS the reason for like unnecessary gravedigging and the repetitive topics that they were like already used for the most of time.

Re: Tomahawk, Stop locking topics.

I mean, tell the people who actually report it, to stop firstly. I’ve been reporting some topics to be locked with a reason.

Some topics may also be locked by the OPs.

But actually, thanks to the guy for keeping the forum clean.

Re: Tomahawk, Stop locking topics.

Speaking from experience, reporting anything is pretty much useless now

Re: Tomahawk, Stop locking topics.

We need to maintain a reasonably consistent average thread quality or the forums turn into a ****.

If I leave low-effort and spammy threads unlocked, they become a baseline for what’s allowed. The next set of threads then toe the line, and I’ve just lessened my ability to lock those because people can point to recent examples that have stayed open.

It’s not necessarily a slippery slope, because the baseline I help enforce can and should be changed - day-to-day if necessary - to account for fluctuating forum activity, ratio of spam to non-spam and the number of new active users.

Some subforums need to be stricter. Game Business and Game Discussion are the most visited; modding there is seen by the most users and so must be representative always. Q&A needs to stay helpful. Off-Topic is spammier, but the funposting there (as with everywhere else) still should add entertainment-value.

So if you’re asking to spam freely, the answer’s no. If you want the baseline changed, then put some effort into a rational argument for it.

One bot to rule them all, one bot to find them. One bot to bring them all... and with this cliché blind them.

So the minimodding rule has been lifted, I take it?

Re: Tomahawk, Stop locking topics.

No, it's still a rule, but if the minimodding is part of a bigger post or is done in a more nuanced way that conveys the poster's opinion about the topic, it's either OK or too trivial for a warning.

If you're gonna link some recent examples, I'll reconsider but I won't warn them. The statute of limitations for 0-point warnings kicks in pretty quick, provided that very regular modding occurs - which it does.

Based on your logic:

We’re allowed to overdramatize the ownership of everybody edits.
