Policy Message...

While I understand that there will be times within the community where various people may not respect or get along well with each other for various non-adjudicative specific reasons, I would like to ask that we all try to take steps to avoid the expression of that occasional discord within the more restrictive TGSAP submission threads which are designed to be permanent and read by future site visitors forever.

TG will always endeavor to support free expression that falls within our Terms of Service, and obviously under that banner, a lot of off-topic non-adjudicative expression has historically gotten through in the TGSAP threads, but as we turn our attention more and more to improving the details and experience within the platform we need to be a little more restrictive in certain areas to support growth.

Thank you.

    Does this extend to the next time a gamer who has dedicated years to a game joins to submit a score and has their first TG experience be some clueless person embarrassing everyone by replying with five Wikipedia articles about their game?

    If it gets reported, yes.

    Jace, to be crystal clear...you said "TGSAP submission threads" but did not specifically mention "TGSAP dispute threads".

    Since the goal is to preserve those as well, shouldn't the policy be extended to dispute threads, too ?

    This is good. Hammer has already been brought down on two members, who think it's OK to disrupt the adjudication process with their foolishness. Hopefully, persistent offences will be met with hefty suspensions, and bans. Given the massive amount of dispute thread sabotage, strict moderation should also apply, in that forum.

    By then the damage is done. It would be a lot better if certain individuals were strongly dissuaded from doing it in the first place.

    @EVN

    Question

    1. Who are they, you have list of them?

    2. Yes, without question the policy should apply especially in the disputes? Look at the differences on of Twin Galaxy members posting between Submission Reviews and Disputes

    There are 3,080 Dispute post and 1,991 Score Submission review post

    3,080 - 1,991 = 1,089 more Dispute post than Score Submission post


    A. Score Submission Review Voting, Review, and Official Performance Discussion Threads.

    Juan, it is entirely possible that a combination of actions is leading to this.

    I've noticed on my end (Google Chrome) that it takes an inordinate amount of time for my post to be recognized. Hitting F5/submit repeatedly does not help BUT when I close out Chrome and re-launch then revisit TG all of a sudden there's my post appended.

    I have to imagine that whatever sequence of steps you are taking in dealing with this prevalent posting issue is leading to double posts on your end...maybe chronicle as best as you can to SincerelyFranny and she can ascertain what is causing this to happen to you ?

    HAHAHA that is gold. @EVN speaks up about something that have been on a lot of people's minds over the past year with a person spamming needless unwanted info in adjudication threads and right on queue they come here and spam needless unwanted screenshots. Classic.

    Don't act innocent you ****. You come into this site harassing folks and making a mockery of the adjudication process with sexual innuendos! This place would be way better off without you trying to cause trouble and throwing unnecessary insults everywhere for anyone that doesn't agree with you. Hence why you've been FORUM RESTRICTED before and I hope it happens again BECAUSE I WILL REPORT EVERY SINGLE DEMEANING AND CONDESCENDING POST YOU MAKE. Try me.

    Just look at the mess this guy makes on adjudication threads. This isn't something that happens once in a while. It happens on EVERY SINGLE ADJUDICATION THREAD. It's become a chore to scroll through pages of unwanted and unneeded screenshots. I mean he even screenshots the leaderboard of the game most of the time. I feel bad for any new member coming to the site to submit and they get welcomed with this kind of mess. Not a good look at all.

    It's because the majority of the members here are submissive people that run away from overly aggressive people that these idioots run rampant on the site. Sorry not sorry.


    People like AD think they have this power because they are like they are and don't realize people like me deal with folks way worse in real life. I have to toss out people twice my size and they are wasted on alcohol on top of that. So yeah... an aggressive and condescending internet troll on a gaming site is pretty pathetic in comparison..

    This honestly would never happen if people never allowed it in the first place but I get it, not everyone has a spine. ... and this is coming from someone who really wants general positivity at TG! But y'all made your beds and here we are.

    let it be known that if you are on a members ignore list you cannot report their blog posts.

    jjt and rtm, i made the same mistake as you guys made, but after a few times i saw the pattern and how to avoid it.

    TG is NOT slow processing your comment but it IS slow informing you of it. that is to say, your comment gets posted almost immediately, but your browser doesnt show it, your browser freezes and acts like its frozen. if you then hit refresh and resend, well, you just might resend it. better to open a new tab. in the new tab verify your comment is there, then delete the old tab. yes the bug sucks but this is how you work around it

    as for the wikipedia clutter, i agree. But i'm also symathetic to its not done out of maliciousness. Can I suggest when problems like this are found, the rules evolve, a new rule is made against it. going forward the rule must be enforced, but going backwards you cant punish someone for something that wasnt against the rules the rules at the time, especially in cases where it seems there was no ill intent.

    in this particular case, i wouldnt want to rule out screenshots as we sometimes need references. however, if you're going to screenshot the ENTIRE thing being references, then maybe a rule that you just provide a link instead. Then if someone wants a loophole where they just leave off one word so its not technially the whole thing, fine make the judgement call and wack 'em for it.

    My last comment calling someone a phallic member was deleted but I will not hesitate to say it again. If you are a toxic mean spirited keyboard ninja, i will make it known thats I how I feel about you. We have some seriously toxic people who obviously have zero social skills that just cause trouble. I say go somewhere else or find a better way to make yourself feel big.
