Other people think any sort of calling anyone out, is an insult. I think what most people have expressed over time (my opinion from reading posts) is that they would like this to be a good discussion of game advice, tips and strategies. However, that's not possible when Gree refuses to have any sort of engagement and continues to roll out the same events over and over and over...the only real strategy is to buy gold.

    As info, the definition of trolling is in the Code of Conduct (I've pasted it below) and it does leave some judgement up to the moderators, but for the most part, I think you could easily find posts that violate the definitions below on an almost daily basis.

    No Trolling: This includes -

    Creating threads for the sole purpose of disrupting the forum.
    Causing disorder in threads by picking fights, making off-topic posts that ruin the thread discussion, and insulting other posters.
    Creating posts designed to receive inappropriate responses.
    No Bumping: Creating short posts with the sole intention of keeping threads at the top of the forum is called “bumping.” This raises forum traffic and clutter and moves more active threads down the page which may result in the thread being lost. Persistent offenders will be issued a warning or infraction. This rule excludes recruitment threads. Recruitment threads will be allowed one (1) bump either every 24 hours or when the thread moves to the second page of the sub-forum.

    Also, for what it's worth, any sort of refund discussion is banned by the code of conduct. So technically, whether for or against it, posts about refunds should not be allowed. Also, some people like to throw the word fraud around without really understanding what it means. I've seen very few posts advocating fraud.

    Interestingly enough, I don't see anything in the COC about 'I quit' threads, but that's one of the few actions that's blocked regularly.

    You have a thankless job as moderator in this forum, but I think the moderation now is better than it has been in the past. There are some things I think should be done differently, but I guess the solution is either I can apply to be a moderator, or I can shut up about it...
    See, under past moderators I would have been given an infraction if I followed people around posting stuff like this. Case in point.

    I'll be back when the moderation is reasonable. Enjoy the forum you created, Gree.

    Wrong. The Community Managers are very much appreciative of the time we put in here.

    This forum never had integrity. It used to be occasionally entertaining. Here are the biggest issues in the forum policy:


    Creating threads for the sole purpose of disrupting the forum.
    Causing disorder in threads by picking fights, making off-topic posts that ruin the thread discussion, and insulting other posters.
    Creating posts designed to receive inappropriate responses.

    These three bullet points are completely subjective. Want proof? Look at the thread you're reading right now.

    Is this thread disrupting the forum? Sort of. We aren't talking about the game. It's led to some conflict and disagreements. Guess it depends on the mod or their mood.
    Am I picking a fight by calling you and your crew out for being poor moderators? Is this post basically off topic as it has nothing to do with CC aside from the CC forum? I feel insulted that you think the fix for a bad forum is to "constantly inform everyone to adhere to GREE's forum policy". It insults my intelligence.
    Some of these responses are inappropriate. Did I create this post with that in mind? Guess it depends on the mod or their mood.

    Maybe you can get DOJ to investigate as a hate crime.

    Yes, mods are to use their best judgement concerning matters such as these. Am I wrong for letting it drag on so you can voice your opinion? Maybe...maybe not. Though to me, it's just that, an opinion. Now, it's only fair that I lock this thread before things get out of line.
