    I have recently banned from the forums on GameSpot, I can't even send a PM, so that's why I used GameFAQs recently.

    And a lot of my "msgs" got moderated. It's just so sh*tty!!! [​IMG]

    And they delete topics too after a while, so we can't really use the search function, to get the answers, but in a old game, this would be lifesaver -- the precious answers, tricks, etc. just all gone, so we just can't read it... and the same for the "500 posts and lock" rule... it's all SUCK!!!

    I HATE it. Really. We would need a "GameFORUMs", with the newest IPB, if there wasn't GBATemp! And who don't know GBATemp, they all just simply SUCKS. [​IMG]

    Anybody with the same feelings?

    EDIT: Fixed what we need! [​IMG]

    Gamespot is in the pocket of various game companies. Therefore anything they may not like will get moderated.

    I lose between 3 and 12 karma points on GameFAQs almost every week lol ... and I can't count how many times I've had 48 hour or 72 hour suspensions.

    You find that the people who have massive levels of karma are those who pretty much say nothing in their posts, or who only post to warn others about the hazards of what they have posted ... basically, very safe posters.

    Or, they just suck up to the mods lol

    GameFAQS forums are infested with 13yo fanboys.. you can't have a decent discussion there.. It's almost like /v/.. but without the funny images..

    GBATemp already supplies all my gaming forum needs [​IMG]

    GameFAQs forum has always been crap, I honestly have no idea why people go there at all. It all feels so unstructured, messy and hard to navigate. The GmaeFAQs FAQ section though is immensly awesome.

    I love the "So is this game any good?" or "Should I buy this game, or Halo 3?" topics in pretty much every fucking board

    I go to gamefaqs, got 1510 karma and I am not an idiot, I just follow the rules and mark the idiots for moderation.

    I do agree, a lot of idiots.

    Especially a kid who burnt a church and posted proof of it on gamefaqs. He got arrested.

    Also, the topic like: Should I buy this game or Halo 3 are always biased. You ask this on the game's board, and on halo 3 board, what are they gonna say? Most of them on a board are fanboys of the game.

    Sure, the forums suck, but GameFAQs is a very good site. I use it for all my walkthrough, cheating etc. needs, and they're quite good at listing game releases.

    Yeah, true. I've never posted on the forums. Lots of noobs/trolls/other.

    But the Walkthrough section is one of the best of the entire intarwebz [​IMG]

    Just go on GBATemp for some serious gaming discussion [​IMG]

    I never had any problem with gamefaqs, not the moderation at least.
    but i had some problems with members of the pokemon D/P forums, once I traded a hacked pokemon ( I didn't know that it was hacked) and then people said in their signature that I was a scammer...

    Same.

    I actually frequent the boards sometimes. yeah. For every useful post there's usually 30 shitty topics. The admins need to add a "Filter this shit please" button.
