Moderators Dilemma
Singapore dark_blade 
Perhaps a better system for moderation instead of a 1 hour banning spree when the single mod is awake? The forum is a cesspool for 23 hours of the day and unusable. I am requesting that you add some more mods. Thank u and with respect

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
And what I mean is it is just purposeful baiting and toxicity on controversial topics like transgender and Russia and America and Qatar. Gets old and toxic every single day no break. Look at the front page half the topics are bait and banworthy but there is a severe mod shortage. Every other forum has 24/7 mods. Please add more mods, thank you with respect

Most likely either just false or exaggerated. No idea why you would lie though.

Then why are you lying? 10 years ago, 2012, the forum wasn't a "chaos" where mods needed to constantly ban edgelords. And you didn't just write 10, you wrote 10+. So, surely you must have some idea as to why you're lying.

it most definitely was, but for the most part the threads stayed up. irrelevant, but I've been playing cs since 1.6 and lived on gaming forums since i was a teenager. I don't see how that would seem exaggerated.

Not even remotely close to being true, but it's cute that you're trying. The forum didn't start turning into the edgelordery cesspool that it became until like 2014-2015. The 1.6 community was in no way edgy compared to the zoomers that later flooded the site. If anything, it was downright friendly here. So either you're senile, or you're lying.

in one sense it was way worse, but the culture was different and alot of things would slide back then that would get you insta banned today (which is a good thing).

hahaha thats hilarious pretty much the same as the csgo vs valorant threads you see now found 1 comment "Most of you are that kind of people that can't play other games than the main game [1.6]. Also, most of you don't have PCs to run CS:GO."
2022-11-28 21:28

To be fair, CS:GO at the beginning was utter trash. Not only broken, but also simply badly balanced and weapons were props. It took them quite a long time before they improved it dramatically. Just look at this clown fiesta; youtube.com/watch?v=ogcBfHjzsIU
2022-11-28 21:34

2022-11-28 21:32
i think it's elaborate trolling then vs cheap baiting now. i remember the 'swedian kings' blog by a dude with broken english (or pretending to have broken english). that was funny

Choas started 2013 onwards, though... That was when the baiters would frequent the forums more often, then 2014 was when all of the toxicity started and users were actually leaving the forums because of how toxic the userbase was.

I would say it's definitely better compared to the times with racist-word thread spam, and scam links to every 1st post.. but I'd definitely also say that it was better around 13/14 than it is now. At that point it hadn't turned into an edgelord echo chamber.

I would say 14/15 it definitely was. No discussions were being had and every single professional play was met with several witch-hunting topics + troll blogs, etc... I can see your point, though.

Yeah 2015 was notorious with that. And all of the cheating accusations, which I suppose you are referring to with the witch-hunting threads. That's also when you started seeing the dark side with all the hate watchers. An immense part of the community despised fnatic.

"The forum is a cesspool for 23 hours of the day and unusable." Are you on HLTV for 23 hours a day to confirm this? "Perhaps a better system for moderation instead of a 1 hour banning spree when the single mod is awake?" How do you know that is the case?

They can only reproduce forever because there is a single mod banning people for 1 hour a day. If there are 24/7 mods and they ban every troll like every other forum it organically gets better Just add more mods. Nothing you say is logical.

"just add more mods" isn't the solution tho, there would have to be a process of selecting appropiate people for this position, trusting them enough to give them moderating powers, making sure that the scales don't trip to the other side and that this forum doesn't become a strict shithouse for serious people 45+ only. also please give an example of "every other forum" the size of hltv

big L take by the mod. this is a cs forum. people talk about cs here. this user thinks dev1ce didnt get out the cleanest way ever of his contract with nip. says he is a fraud. while I disagree with him, it is irrelevant, just a fun fact. long story short if this user wants to discuss that under a dev1ce returns article, he should be able to. mod should either be removed or made to understand this

ah, and im guessing your moral paradigms are the objectively superior parameters under which this website should be modded? You don't need to have a better time on HLTV, dark_blade, you need to log off and spend less time on HLTV.

404 threads is not that bad if they are removed before they are very active. But I don't think removing innocent threads because of the comments going off the rails is ok.

this forum actually had fun threads to read before frankie complained and become the president of this forum. I go to offtopic section every now and then and there is never anything worth to read and when there is it gets deleted.
