Guidelines

Postby Jens » Sun Mar 15, 2015 11:38 pm

Hi Everyone,
As you've probably noticed these forums are brand new, we still have some tools laying around and the decorators are still busy putting up wallpaper in the lounge.

Please imagine that this post contains a list of sensible rules and guidelines. I know it doesn't, but we are currently researching this (or better, I asked somebody to research this), and we'll try to update this post ASAP. But as we're all grown up around here we should already know how to behave in public.

I just gave Andy and the rest of the Playtonic crew moderator permissions, and they'll be happy to rule this forum with an iron fist.

Cheers,
Jens

P.S.: AndyR is our official community guy. Please PM him directly if you need help or assistance. Contact me if there are technical problems.

I like the updates already. And I mean, the forum is already 99% great in my opinion, especially since its a small community of people all excited for the game. Looking forward to further improvements!
Make the forum great again.

Hmmm aren't you going to need moderators that are not part of your team since you can't really have your team working on Project Ukulele and the Forum at the same time?

I really don't think they're about to start giving random fans moderator permissions, smooth guy.

Anyway yeah happy to have the iron fists. DOOMKONG was humorous but getting a little bit out of control.

Well in one of their posts they said they were going to give community people moderatorship and we really want the team to do their best working on the game and not having to keep a constant look-out for trolls. I bet it's going to be about 2-3 weeks before they decide who they want to give moderatorship towards. And considering the current influx of trolls it is getting kinda annoying. Also there's this racist bigot above my post.

Yeah, I agree. I'd rather they work on their game than worry about trolls on their forums. :(

Well yeah, I mean.... So do I, but.... Well, they're a game company. A rather unorthodox one, I'll give them that, but it just seems...weird that they would appoint fans to help run their own site. Not that I care, or am against it. Just feels awkward, I suppose. Though sometimes awkward can be good.

Yeah though, they have enough on their hands at the moment without moderating. From what I understand it is actually pretty time-consuming and they don't need any of that right now. Whereas devoted fans will jump at the opportunity, very few would actually be qualified for the job. And since we're all random anonymous internet people, it's hard to say who. :/

Well I'm more then happy to moderate the site. I've had experience in moderating many forums and threads.

Rule #1 of becoming a moderator: NEVER ask to be a moderator directly unless stated otherwise or better yet PM them instead.

Indeed, and there are a lot of people who have that same thought - but aren't asking for a place in the mod team. That is until one of the admins says so.

I can still find 12 topics created by DOOMKONG. It's time to get rid of them!

Do you lads reckon bullying others into silence is really appropriate? If someone is keen, they should speak up in public that's how people get elected in 'the real world'. I put my hand up to show willingness but not obsessive eagerness, and I'm not going to be lectured by random strangers what I should 'ought' to have done in their opinion.

Well when you do it in a public forum trying to get moderator it kinda seems immature to a lot and is mostly a private matter than it is a public one. Forum moderators aren't dictated by democracy rather you get appointed by Playtonic.

You can add him as foe for now, and you will automatically ignore his posts. :)

Once the forums are properly up and running, they'll probably add some of the plugins to address those shortfalls of the software, though once forum moderation is good to go and the rules are in place, these issues are likely to abate themselves, or be handled by Playtonic's team. ;)
