i guess ur right there... on my old forums we use to get a share of the monthly revenue. not suprising that they wouldn't be paid here, this is a relatively small forums compared to the big boys.

/me just like trolling around for funny comments :p

For a little while you guys seemed to ban people who crossed the lines and took away the enjoyment from this forum, and then, quite suddenly, I guess you guys decided that it was simply too much work.

This is either extreme laziness or lack of knowlege. Managing blanket bans that would be effective against a person's IP or IP range are not difficult in vBulletin. I know this because I moderate ps3forums.com (as part of a team) where we also use vBulletin, with just as passionate and divided an audience which is actually even larger than this.

Even if you are not using IP bans, (due to people who use proxies etc.), the simple 30 second action of permabanning people who keep coming back creates more work for them than for you, since they need a new e-mail address to open every new account.

You either need to figure out how to use your IP bans, (and in the event someone uses a proxy, contact the manager of the proxy and threaten to block the whole proxy unless they deal with this user... that was quite effective for us at PS3Forums), or you need to enlist more help to stay on top of the trolls.

Theoretically this is a money making venture in which you build something of value and then use it to present advertising. These trolls are stealing that value. At some point, they steal enough value for the value equation to imbalance, causing people to visit less frequently... it happened at PS3Forums, (forcing us to change our strategy), it'll happen here.

Ignoring can only work for so long. It's like trying to carry an adult conversation with a kid at your elbow making snide remarks the whole time. You only put up with it for so long before you turn to the kid and tell them to shut their trap.

Please address this in some way. It isn't quite that bad yet, but if you continue to do nothing, it will be, and I'd really rather see this forum avoid that growing pain.
I agree man. There are way too many Trolls/idiots around here, ruining good threads, and discussions. It almost makes you not want to post. It seems like most of the mods are never on, either, and if they are, they're not doing anything. It's getting ridiculous.

no but they do have the ability to delete posts... yet the mindset here among some mods is to just ignore them and hope they go away...

If you see it happen, please report the post, by clicking the red/white triangle on the left side of the screen near their username

They won't know you did it, unless they're a mod, and if their name isn't listed at the very bottom of the forum just assume they're not a mod.

Also, a lot of time there's a good discussion, and people let one bad post ruin teh discussion. Feel free to just not respond to a dumb comment, and instead respond to the thread's intelligent points. When 20 random fans are takling about something, there's bound to be one or two that are clueless

If someone is really trashing a discussion badly, please report the post, red/white triangle on the left side of the screen

They won't know you did it, unless you care to put 'reported' in the topic letting everyone know about it

Thank you for responding. I'll definitely be hitting the report button, but as a forum user and someone who's modded, I understand that there's two sides to every story, and some violations are better left untouched to let the conversation flow.

I just want to know that you guys were at least concerned with it, which I not do.

I think he's against the foreigner poster here, ISH is for everyone, includ foreigners, so it's not funny to call foreigner idiot because we can't speak well english. he deserves to be banned for ever, what's the right for foreigner people?
