Since when was broken street dates against the rules?

Seems to me that it'd fall under illegal activities/pirating.

Wut. How is it illegal when the devs ship it so that you receive it early from their own store?

They said they often face legal issues with it, so just easier to make it a blanket rule I imagine.

Nothing is going to change anyway. My last warning was overturned, I lost 10 karma but I could not post here for 3 days.

I got it overturned though. After my fucking warning was over with already. I'm convinced the mods don't read thoroughly. Until they get people that do, this system will never work. 

And if the mod doesn't like you, just they just mod whatever the hell they want.

True. I trolled the LGBT community pretty hard and this staff didn't do shit. 

I'm convinced there's a conservative mod because last blatant troll topic on the subject nothing happened either.

FrankIin 15 hours ago#321
The notify without deletion thing is some crap, because mods complain most moderations aren't against the ToS. Marking users and then rarely seeing a result is will exacerbate that issue. This is especially because GFAQs' ToS is rarely cogent, nor are its enforcement measures transparent.

SBAllen and his mods have recently come under a lot of fire for uneven enforcement and bias, and being able to claim "we did something! you just can't see it!" is a great cover story.

SBAllen may have a high IQ, but mine is higher. If he expected to fool me, or any of the other highly cognitive users of this site, he was badly mistaken.

* We will be aiming to be more lenient about what constitutes as Off-Topic on a gaming board, opting more for NWD warnings as long as the topic seems to be in the spirit of the board. We are still considering the option of adding topic flairs in the future to remove this moderation type completely.

the mods will discover, circumvent, and end whatever bullshit you are planning....then you will be promptly banned. don't even bother dude....just read the FAQS, post some cheats, and contribute some game saves to the website and you'll be okay. be productive. don't be a waste.

    I really don't know what to make of this. I would have to see it in action because typically stuff has just been enforced so inconsistently. I've refrained from namecalling as 1) it's unnecessary (can win arguments without it) and 2) I assumed it was already banned - or at least, people would complain and mark all the time like it was anyway. And that's really why I suspect this announcement has been made.

    Seems like a lot more work for the mods.

    In a way, I can see it being easier for them. If the queue's already full of complaints about namecalling, it's easier for them to just take down everything rather than question and spend time thinking about whether it's serious enough to take down.

    Maybe this was in an early announcement because it was one of the fastest things they could agree on. I'd feel sorry for them if this came first by order of importance...if namecalling is seen as one of the biggest issues on the site, it would suggest there's better things they could be doing with their time. When they say "we can't get to the serious stuff that's been up for hours, if not days, because we're just so busy" and the priority rule change is placed on namecalling, are they truly swamped?

    Especially with the political climate lately, it's probably never been easier to feign genuine beliefs that are reprehensible while trying to play coy about what they're really supporting, baiting people to call them "racist" or something even more extreme, then just marking all that and laughing as those people get in trouble. And when you build up a history in a community of that, it's all the easier, because you can go extreme for a bit, establish a history, a reputation, and then need only lightly poke at that and hint to it from then on. Mods won't pick up on what they're doing but the troll's intended audience certainly will.

    I'm surprised you're saying this but I think this is something we can agree on.

    I guess the California-invented concept of "misgendering" is still not a violation.

    Uh, what? Mods have specifically enforced that stuff.

    Depends. More minor violations (typically the ones listed under the board etiquette) won't be deleted if quoted UNLESS the user agrees with the violation. More severe violations (these will typically be the ToU rules) will be deleted, but karma is rarely taken for these situations because it was a quoted post and not necessarily the quoting user's fault.

    What about new users who admit they’re previously banned? Is that still in effect?

    Depends, it's a case by case basis depending on who they are and what they did to get banned. If you're a certain someone who has made over 10,000 accounts to troll the Switch board (yes, this is a real person), then yes. If you had one account banned over repeat minor offenses and decide to come back and reform, no.

    Can a moderator please do a favour and explain why there is such a heavy pro-Nintendo bias among the moderation staff on this site?

    There has been a double standard in which any comment remotely critical of Nintendo the company, a Nintendo game/product, or any subset of the Nintendo fanbase tends to get harshly moderated, while Nintendo fans are free to take shots at any other game developer/company. 

    GameFAQs has a reputation for being pro-Nintendo in the online gaming community (just Google "NintendoFAQs"). Perhaps the unusually high concentration of Nintendo fans on this site is a logical result/consequence of the administration's pro-Nintendo bias? Just like how governments perceived as being more friendly to [insert group or industry here] tends to get more of it?

    I would like to notify @Error1355 and @Alucard188 of a few paragraphs they must read:

    The way that NWD will work is that for minor offenses where a user technically violated a rule but their post wasn't particularly heinous, we will allow the post to remain but notify the user that their post was against the rules so that they know in the future not to post something similar again. If we notify the user a few times and their behavior doesn't change, we'll ramp up the punishment to deletions, then Warnings, and so on.

    For many lower level moderations, the moderation is used almost more as a teaching aid than as a means of removing the content from the site because it's egregious in nature. Usually the user was simply unaware of the rule. With NWD, we can still educate the user without punishing them.

    Along with this change, we'll be changing the way that some of the rules are enforced. In most cases, this will result in a punishment that is less severe than it would've been before (unless it's something that would have merited a Warning before as Warnings and up haven't changed). A few rules will change more than others:


    So no more instant warns from now on, mmkay guys. especially for posts you just disagree with and aren't actually against the rules

    @Irony wtf is broken street dates anyway

    If a game is officially release on January 31st but you get the game on the 28th for whatever reason (store sold it early, someone shipped it early). People posting early screenshots, story summaries, etc is the kind of stuff that gets us contacted by lawyers. Someone just saying "I got my copy early, yay!" won't, and would be NWD territory so we can warn them not to discuss the details.


    I mean, I know stores can get in trouble for breaking the street date but as far as I know it's perfectly legal to own and play a game early. Glad to see the loosening on that particular infraction, ditto emulation.

    Light flames going bye bye is a bit disappointing though.

    So from what I read in the OP, career trolls are going to get a hell of a lot more leeway to continue their antics.

    My question is, when there is a blatantly known troll (and there's dozens of them), why can't they be automatically removed, especially when they piss off the entire board that they're trolling.
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, uh, your opinion, manThe Dude

    Depends, it's a case by case basis depending on who they are and what they did to get banned. If you're a certain someone who has made over 10,000 accounts to troll the Switch board (yes, this is a real person), then yes. If you had one account banned over repeat minor offenses and decide to come back and reform, no.

    Can a moderator please do a favour and explain why there is such a heavy pro-Nintendo bias among the moderation staff on this site?

    There has been a double standard in which any comment remotely critical of Nintendo the company, a Nintendo game/product, or any subset of the Nintendo fanbase tends to get harshly moderated, while Nintendo fans are free to take shots at any other game developer/company. 

    GameFAQs has a reputation for being pro-Nintendo in the online gaming community (just Google "NintendoFAQs"). Perhaps the unusually high concentration of Nintendo fans on this site is a logical result/consequence of the administration's pro-Nintendo bias? Just like how governments perceived as being more friendly to [insert group or industry here] tends to get more of it?

    Really? Let's see...

    Ahem.

    Nintendo as a company seems hellbent on never making a just sensical controller again. All their gimmicky controls lately are terrible and it comes across as just another way to nickel and dime the player having to buy an actual real controller. The Wii U Gamepad in particular is an uncomfortable atrocious controller with a ton of wasted space. Putting the joystick above the face buttons is also just purely inferior to the reverse in how it limits what you can do with the controller. These controllers do not enhance the way you play a normal game, which is still the strength of what Nintendo puts out. Amiibos are one of the worst concepts in the gaming industry. It's all the terribleness of microtransactions, with the added disadvantage of physical scarcity. At least with DLC, you can always get it, no problem. By making them physical products to get, it adds a whole new layer of bad to the whole thing. Nintendo really "innovated" there to make DLC worse and less consumer-friendly.

    Breath of the Wild is an overall very good open world sandbox game, but:

    - The fact it FORCES you to use motion controls for certain things is stupid when the best controller on offer doesn't have those built in

    - The button layout in general is inept and inconsistent like they didn't know what they're doing (like what button skips cutscenes varies for no apparent reason depending what cutscene it is, the button to go faster on land is not the button to go faster while swimming, you can snap a photo with a shoulder button but you can't activate stasis or magnesis with one, making it impossible to be operating the right joystick to aim and pressing to activate at the same time, the camera and the scope are separate functions for literally no reason and just makes the controls more convoluted than they need to be, you have to hold the lock on button to stay locked on and you can't use the right joystick to cycle targets)

    - Speaking of lock on, it's utter GARBAGE in BotW. Is it even evolved at all from how it was in OoT? Because advancements have been made in gaming. It doesn't even keep the camera on the enemy, which is kind of important for lock-on to do. When I'm locked on to an enemy, it's probably an enemy I want to focus on...without having to also operate the camera. Souls games are a perfect example of how to do lock on. You click the stick, it locks on. You're focused, the camera is focused, you don't need to fuss with the camera. Move the right joystick, to switch to targets relevant to the direction you moved it. In BotW, not only do you have to awkwardly hold the button, you can't cycle save for letting off then clicking it again where it will RANDOMLY lock on to a different enemy, and you still have to fully control the camera the whole time because it doesn't lock the camera on them. This is especially bad since they walled blocking and evasion moves behind holding down the lock-on button, and doubly so considering to perform a flurry attack by perfectly dodging, you have to dodge in a specific direction to counter the type of attack it is, but what direction you move the left stick to go in the proper direction can be disorienting when the camera isn't locked on to the enemy so the perspective is all out of whack.

    It's unfortunate the game controls so bad since it really is a legitimately good, very long and substantial open world sandbox game...but that strength is also a weakness because it means any flaw in game design/controls it has, you will be stuck with the whooooole ride, and it slowly can erode on one's nerves.

    Oh yeah and Link suffers from Assassin's Creed syndrome, also known as "NO! Stop climbing on that you idiot!" and then he gets hit by the attack you were trying to run away from.

    And to be fair, I was playing BotW just a bit ago and only stopped to come here because it crashed on me in the middle of the finale (or closer to the end really) forcing me to have to go through it all again.

    So yeah I've got grievances. 

    And there's also some physics-based puzzles that are terrible because the physics engine is very imprecise...which is fine, but when a puzzle requires you manipulate it in a way that is perfect and precise, and it requires using finite resources each try, and it's trial and error...that is a truckload of bad design dumped on you. A problem that could easily have been fixed in one of like 7 ways but they somehow thought nah it's okay.

      Honestly, with regards to knowing which mod modded a post, it makes perfect sense why it's kept secret. People would absolutely abuse the hell out of it.

      However, there is a big drawback to this that there's kind of no way around, and that is that every mod becomes representative of all mods, and every experience with a moderation reflective on every individual mod.

      By making the moderations anonymous, it basically makes the staff a single entity, because there's no way to know who is acting when and how much.

      Like I said I think it's unavoidable and it's probably best to keep them anonymous, though I also think the mods as a whole should always conduct themselves such that they're aware of this disadvantage. >_>

      "don't worry babe, I'll check it out" He says to his wife

      He grabs his recently sharpened ruby encrusted katana, puts on his slippers like Craig from Friday, and heads downstairs

      upon reaching the landing, he turns and sees a light coming from his kitchen. as he approaches it he blinks for one second and it's gone. He checks it out anyway, ready for whatever may come. He sees nothing. He rubs his eyes with his Suede GameFAQs dress shirt that he wears to bed, and thinks "while I'm up I might as well drink some of the Lime kool-aid I made earlier". As he turns the light on, he see's his fridge magnets have been arranged in a way to spell out words that haunt him to this very day.

      Went to bed and woke up and remembered I live in a world where some dude had over 10,000 accounts just to troll the Switch board. Biggest news in this topic honestly 

      Holy crap

      We will be aiming to be more lenient about what constitutes as Off-Topic on a gaming board


      The biggest problem with the boards just got worse.

      Seriously why the hell are SNES Classic threads allowed on the Nintendo Switch board?

      So if someone makes a topic bashing something, you feel you have no right as an adult human being to tell that person how you feel about their opinion? I get that plenty here take flaming/trolling too far, but come on. Don't make it so no one has a spine and everyone's skin is paper.

      come back and reform, no.

      What about the people who were wrongly banned? Can't exactly "reform" nothing...

      There's a difference between saying I don't like something, giving an opinion and insulting someone.

      Why should you be polite over something that wasn't in the first place?

      Hi I have a question about the off-topic kinda thing. I am in a clan on gamefaqs and we mostly talk about our days (We still talk about the game in mention) but we do go a bit off-topic now and then, is that allowed? Furthermore great rule changes so far IMO ^^

      No.
      Heck I got WARNED for using POLITICALLY CORRECT GENDER NEUTRAL pronouns! (Such as xhir or xhe).

      If somebody here made a topic about curb stomping babies you would probably get suspended for saying anything harsher than “that’s a pickle, you sinckerydoodle!”

      Am I seriously the only one that doesn't want CE or GF in general to turn into a nanny site where almost anything that isn't praising each other is grounds for moderation?


      I've made multiple posts complaining about the stupidity of that rule

      NWD is such a dumb idea. You can't tell if the mods are being lazy or not and you can't tell if minor things that are on the line are over the line or not because you'll have no visibility to see if things get modded or not. Fantastic job at making things much less transparent.

      That would be an improvement.

      I meant, something to the post for everyone else to see. Not just a notification that the poster sees.
