During the Admins' Absence

Post by Jemisi »

Hi All,

Yes, there has been lots of trolling lately.

Rather than filling threads with flame wars, please use this feature if you are unhappy with a troll.

It is in the sticky at the top of the page.


Don't Feed the Trolls.
Instead, silence them! At least as far as you're concerned.

-> Click on any username to access that user's profile
-> Click 'Add Foe' to add them to your 'foes' list.


This will collapse that user's posts so that you don't see them in threads. If someone's posts are annoying you, then that's the way to deal with them.

Thanks,

Jemisi

Yes, this is a simple solution and can be followed easily. If people don't take the bait, they'll get distraught and stop / leave.

I get the logoc and it might be right but then they take over unopposed and Have conversations between themselves, literally literally between themselves I’ve seen them log out of the various accounts and engineer their own agenda.
So then all the casual onlookers are fed with retardation and lead chip soup and people like me who don’t log in 90% of the time.

I still so we all must report every post regardless of content it’s really possibly just one guy anyway

In theory you are right of course, but actually we should be expecting even some very basic low level moderation and that would fix it. How long would it take to ban the two accounts (possibly the same person) who currently troll? Maybe 1 minute? The place would be infinitely better for the majority instantly.

they literally laughed at the suggestion of adding more mods three years ago when there was also a huge push.

Because basic moderation in the absence of the mods is such an absurd concept :lol:
They are putting themselves and the forum at risk. At the end of the day its inevitable theres going to be another doxxing situation, which could have comsequences within Zim when not dealt with.

The admin team is the owner and the kid who was obsessed with BT but has since grown up and naturally held other interests.
Times today arent the same as 2007.
Add me (Europe) Crimson (India) Eugene (US) and Googly (local Zim) Jemisi (Oz) and the place is securely watched 24/7.
Doesnt hae to be admin, just mod.

I'm not saying it isn't a problem.

And I think that you raise a valid issue with them taking over if we all just ignore them.

But if everyone is just swearing at each other it doesn't exactly look like we are 'handling' them.

This sort of worry is the main reason I read the forum for a good 10 years but never signed up and posted. I guess as I’ve got older though I’ve just stopped caring haha.
