The reality of the situation is moderators are volunteer users. We aren’t employed by Polygon/Vox. We don’t get paid to sift through comments and remove them. Nor do we get paid to get attacked by or debate with community members that cannot maturely make a point or defend their actions, when moderated. We are entitled to our own opinions and we have to abide by the same guidelines a regular user does, in addition to policy for the elevated administrative privileges we have. Moderation actions are logged and documented, so any other moderator or Polygon employee can look in to them to see if we’re abusing our privileges. Additionally, we can’t be in every post or comment thread at all times, to remove all inappropriate content.
That’s why there is a flag system and you can flag moderators as well as contact the community manager when moderators are clearly acting out of line.
If you’re going to complain about the conduct of another user on the site, feel free to also realise that the OP originally made an attempt to start a discussion post, was asked to remove images that were apparently deemed against policy, and decided to turn his thread less into a discussion and more into commentary about how the OP was bent out of shape at the moderation action and to attack the moderation team.
I’ve been avoiding engaging in any discussion here about the topic the OP originally brought up, because by the time I got to this post, the OP chose to instead douse the post in commentary about moderation, rather than just carry on with the original discourse and engage in discussing policy over in Meta. Yes, the OP did create a post (as well as others, trying to bait the moderators into public moderation discussion) in Meta about acceptable imagery, but as you can see from this post itself and the commentary below, he’s also using this post as a platform to launch his feelings of upset towards moderation. I strongly believe we’d be having a different discussion here, had the OP not transformed his post into a vehicle for a commentary on his feelings towards moderation.
The thing is, I’d welcome OP’s criticism of moderation if it was done constructively, with the intent to actually improve the system. However, I feel the OP’s approach to the perceived moderation problem to be more an attempt at satire and blowing up an issue to incite others more than anything else. I, personally, do not perceive this approach as anything other than an attempt to cause problems and as such will not take it seriously, in that regard.
I eat my sugared cereal
But it makes my teeth bacterial
This is the best image we mods have been able to obtain of an Overmod.
Ugh, I wanted to play it a few months back and I had the same issues. I remember reading some fix actions, but never got around to giving them a go.
But you have to wonder… Is that what an overmod is or is that what they want you to think they are?
The Overmods. You never see them. You don’t know who they are.
But they are there.
Holy crap that is exxy.
Why not based off Metalocalypse?
But… Jon Snow knows nothing.
Probably go with Amgod and S’nogard. The polls show that Daddy would have to be the lead and Paddy the pawn, so if you went that route, you’d be doing it wrong. :P
Surname makes me think of a Nordic setting or something.
needs more ham.
That would be UHD. :p
I don’t think the ones you find roaming in cities would be safe to eat, but yes you can still eat non-filthy pigeons. :p
All the high defs!
It’s only missing being wrapped in bacon. And maybe stuffing deboned pigeon into the chicken.
Lulz wants to play Wind Waker HD HD :P
Just double checked, it’s launching with it in “beta” form and is limited to “approved” wifi-capable routers, and a select list of Steam Big Picture mode\GeForce Experience games. There’s also a few other issues currently.
It was mentioned over on The Verge.
Which won’t even be able to stream games at launch, iirc. It’s like a portable Ouya right now.
The Wuu gamepad will definitely be reverse engineered and drivers developed for PC use. However, emulation of the console itself will take time and I foresee the specifications required to run it being substantial until the emulator is optimised and PC hardware progresses. Even then, to today’s standards, the requirements are going to be pretty high.
It’s a pretty significant jump, in terms of theoretical power, between the Wii and Wuu. I feel it’s inevitable and far more likely to happen than say a fully functional PS3 emulator.
We didn’t delete your post. If you do need the content, to save you from writing it up again, let us know.
I’d eat it.
That cake is awesome.
WE’LL BE HAVING NONE OF THESE SHENANIGANS HERE, FOX.
