HLTV rules (serious)
 | 
United States PP_Bizon 
As we know, hltv rules have been debated for a long time now. I would like some serious answers from the mods that give better detail on some rules & guidelines which I think are very unclear and could have better clarification. Don't troll Useless blogs, threads and posts, irrelevant posts, baiting etc. First of all, I've seen many threads that were blatant baits go undeleted. Next point is what is a 'useless' blog, what is 'irrelevant'? What determines a post being irrelevant or useless? Especially in the off topic section. Off topic is supposed to be all the irrelevant and 'useless' topics, so I'm having trouble understanding what an irrelevant/useless topic would be as long as it has been correctly set to offtopic. What makes one offtopic post more 'relevant' than another? Guidlines: When in the right context most things go, as long as you don’t violate the rules. You are entitled to your opinion, as long as you don’t violate the rules. I've seen numerous threads, with fairly interesting discussions that appeared to break 0 rules whatsoever get taken down. There needs to be more clarification in this, if politic related threads aren't allowed, then why is it not explicitly stated in the rules that political threads are not allowed. Another thing I've encountered is seeing entire threads being removed due to a comment breaking the rules, why should a comment dictate whether or not a thread should be removed? This could not be a thing and lead to my 1st point about 'troll posts' though. I hope this thread does not got deleted as I am genuinely trying to get answers here. TLDR: Some of these rules are very ambiguous and unclear, and it would be very helpful/lead to less mod hate if the rules were clarified, or in some cases, like political threads were to be explicitly said to be not allowed.

I remember when that whole MIBR x CHAOS drama happened last year, there were a lot of hate comments against MIBR’s players and Brazilians/the Brazilian scene here, none of them were deleted. When I called Xeppa and leaf cheaters on a thread, less than 5 minutes later my comment was deleted. So yeah, I agree the rules and even more the rules enforcement needs to be more specific

If you can't take the "hate", don't hate. It's as simple as that
2021-02-25 21:49
I am fairly sure that the rules are ambiguos by design so they can delete stuff without having to be too clear as to what the reason was.

There is also a rule, that is not enforced, that says to not hunt for #1 comment and there's this german guy: hltv.org/news/31265/og-to-remove-nbk-rep.. That often is #1 in various news threads (with this acc or his other alts) and his comments never gets deleted.

yes, hltv.org/news/31258/video-sh1ros-12-1vx-.. And if you scroll through older posts you'll find various examples. The structure of the post (usually) is: Germany flag + name: (Germany something + Brazil something) + Generic comment + posted at the same exact same minute of the news post or 1 minute later. It is a clear sign of mental illness and an obsession with Brazil :)

I explained it in #53. It is up to the mods to decide whether they will do something about it or not. Stop with the bla bla such as "witch hunting", "racism", it's gibberish and you know it. I'm done replying to you, bye. Edit: I've been on HLTV for 4-5 years now and I've seen this pattern repeat over the years. I just won't bother digging through posts because I'm not a mod and I don't get paid to do this. And because there is no guarantee that my "research" would result in anything other than me wasting my time.

With the state of the site the ambiguous rules are probably better than baiters and trolls trying to poke holes in every single line of text in the rules page Simpler rules sometimes suck but they're better

Are the mods on this site paid btw? If so what a joke. So many racist threads staying up forever, then I got bans for very small infringements. Also apparently you can't criticize pros but its okay to bully and harass other members, as long as you don't use any "banned" words. I know HLTV can be a cesspool and must be hard to manage, but I feel a better job could be done.

HLTV is run by the CCP, their censorship/ban requirements are inconsistent.
2021-02-26 14:47
I've said these things so many times in threads, ban appeals but they never listen or update the rules. They literally banned me twice for a rule that doesn't exist ("+1" for "supporting offensive content"). This site is a mere shell of its former self and will quickly die out if moderation like this continues.
