    I made a simple thread giving my thanks to the creator of Pokemon Bloody Diamond and not only do I get flamed, the topic gets locked.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=116232

    Congratulations.....you've successfully alienated a new member. Perhaps I was wrong to think this forum was worth my time.

    And after a few posts you flamed two members.
    You could have:
    a)Posted in the pokemon bloody diamond topic
    b)Pm'd the author of the patch

    It appears to have been locked because people were flaming you. Its what the moderators are here for, to prevent abuse of threads and other users...

    You need to grow thicker skin if 1 thread and 2 or 3 negative comments are 'alienating you'. There were also a post or two defending you.

    Anyways if you stay, welcome to GBAtemp, if you leave, sorry to see you go.

    I dont really care which it is you do after this post.

    He isn't really smart; by opening up this Topic he made a new ┬┤Flame me, i'm a noob called Kyrue!┬┤ place let's close this off mods

    This place is better than gamefaqs.
    Partly because of the stricter better moderation.
    We're always glad to have new members, but if you can't handle the moderation,
    sorry to see you go.

    I'd like to see you talk about ROMs, hacks, homebrew, flashcarts, flashcards, flashing, custom firmware, modchips, softmods, and allllllllll that other crap at GameFAQs.

    Go on, we'll be here when you get back with severe karma loss.

    Don't generalize. And don't jump to conclusions too quickly [​IMG]
    I'm the admin (well one of the three) around here and I'm sorry that you feel that way.
    This place isn't usually very strict, on the contrary we've been really lenient in the past.
    I think you shouldn't give up so early [​IMG] people aren't all so bad here...

    I only posted once in my original thread, then went to sleep. Woke up to it being locked, so please actually go back and read it instead of instigating, and stating that I flamed people.

    Where are the rules saying I have to do PM or post in the same topic? What better way to thank somebody than in a public place where all can see?


    Regardless of this all, it's clear that this isn't a place for me. I'll stick to the free download sections and call it good after that. The forums are troll bait. It's almost sad too, because I'm guessing that when this was a smaller website, it was a lot more fun to interact with others. Big places lose that "homey" feel.

    It's understandable that when the community suddendly started to grow, moderation had to be stricter.

    However, I agree it has become pretty absurd over the years.

    Personally I really don't think the moderation here is strict at all. I've gotten away with some pretty shady posts that definitely wouldn't have been allowed on GameFAQs, and there's a bunch of threads in the EoF that I can guarantee wouldn't be allowed anywhere else except for that 4chan place *spits out bad taste in mouth*.

    Mostly it's just a case of posting the right thing in the right place, if you don't then you get informed of the correct place or the mods just move it for you. That thread was locked before it ended up looking like a British pub on a Friday night.

    And Costello's not an asshole, he's a vampire - I've already posted the proof. [​IMG]

    ...place and time for everything. blah blah blah. It doesn't seem like such a big deal to get around.
    • Thicker skin: It's the internet, c'mon... how civil do you think it is? While there may be a few bad 'eggs' here at gbatemp, you'd be best to take it with a grain of salt. Trolls, etc.
    • He's The New Guy: Probably doesn't know the ropes, give'em a break. Reply and New Topic are pretty ambiguous if you are click happy.
    Now let's forget our troubles with a big bowl of strawberry ice cream!

    Especially the vampire note. Be careful around Costy.

    One last thing... you compared us to Gamefaqs and called us pathetic in the same sentence.
    And yet, your topic is still open, people are still debating, and you're free to express your opinion.
    At least we can take (and respond to) criticism [​IMG]

    I saw your thread, and it was harsh. Don't let a few mean comments make you stay away from the forums. There are tons of nice members here (you would be one, you made a thread for giving thanks!) so please give it another try, I'm sure you will love it here [​IMG]
