I might be doing these once in a while, to get the opinion of the community majority. This could help improve this site. Voting does not guarantee a change.

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious?
Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules?
Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more?
Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem?

You do not have to supply a reason, though it would be helpful if you do. If you disagree with a member, do not argue. This thread is for voting, not for debating. There is no poll, vote by posting. Please give out your true opinion.

#2- we're to strict on bypassing.
Opinion 1: Noobs, I say delete all noob acounts and give people a lookover before letting them join.
3: Make more interesting topics, bring back sploder stories, make a new event other than prom or gameshow.

1. Yes. I've seen my best friends get banned because they have fun.

2. Yes. I lost all my friends because either they left because of the rules, or were banned for breaking the super-strict rules.

3. Both. We need more then just you, Liam, running Sploder. We need to have more fun, too.

4. The strict rules. Matthade, Charis, APOD, all my friends, all GONE?

Vote #1 - Yes, most people worry about promotions nowadays, and are uptight.

Vote #2 - Yes, some Lts+ make rules that damage the fun mood of this forum, e.g: the rule of bypassing.

Vote #3 - Fun, see #2 and #1

Opinion #1 - Alot of people take this forum way too seriously, it's a gaming forum, not a business forum.

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious? Yes and no.
Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules? No. People get away with quite a bit already.
Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more? We need to fix our moderation, too many lazy people.
Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem? People not recognizing this is a children's forum and should be treated as such.

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious? Yes and no.
Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules? It can be.
Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more? There's a gameshow coming, and several categories. Moderation ftw.
Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem? Maybe you could actually enforce the age limit? 13 is a great number to start with. There shouldn't be an option to get your parent's permission. It would stop bypassing, and the censor, just be a little strict on racial slurs. Okay, more than a little. Also, this really shouldn't be a kids forum. It should be directed at a more teenage group. Maybe add a news feed, or something along those lines, to the MS, if you're concerned about younger members being left in the dark. Wow, this was a lot longer than expected. XD

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious? Yes, people need to stop whining about ranks and rules, most other forums are far stricter and the ones that aren't are notorious for chaos (4chan).

Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules? No, if anything it needs to be slightly stricter and less bias towards members with popularity (*cough* Charis *looks at some leuts*).

Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more? Fun, moderation is fine as is but I feel that a few more activities and revival of older activities would be nice.

Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem? People whining.

I wanna say it sounds too strict in a way. I understand the need for rules and there's always troublemakers. But this is a forum for fun and game sharing, not a prison or the army or a boot camp. There's just a lot of talk about POW and JDC lately, and it takes the fun out of it.  And some of the people in power positions are too young to be deciding on such things. Dosen't mean their bad people, but they don't have the maturity yet to handle a position of resposibilty. Just my opinions tho.

1) For the most part yes. It should feel more recreational
2) Somewhat. In some cases yes, in other cases no
3) More fun for the most part
4) Maybe reduce the size and number of categories for the forum. I know I can see extra categories as a lt. but it looks too complicated.

It's meant to be 'are the forums...' not is.

#seriostakling

But I really do think it's too strict on rules here. If we're going to have fun here we need some more slight lenience on rules especially General.

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious? - Yes, I think some soldiers+ think we have to be mature adults and things.

Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules? - Yes, We cannot have fun.

Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more? - Fun, I would like to see some of that.

Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem? - How mature some of the soldier's+ expect us to be.

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious? Sometimes, only when going over rules and stuff.
Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules? No, people can get away with stuff like Mech G said but only the punishments are too harsh.
Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more? Moderation, I have fun on the forums anyway.
Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem? Panicking and just banning somebody for something minor e.g. Banning Charis for making alts, nothing too bad to worry about, it's not like he's hacking/spamming with his alt. (or was he? All I know was I made an alt and is banned now)

Vote #1 - Is the forums too serious?
Nope. Infact, we are getting better
Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules?
Apparently. I think 8 months is enough for a ban. And some rules other than the usual no bypassing/porn/spam/hacking that is just lame
Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more?
Adequate balance please.
Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem?
Permanent bans are just stupid

That's because it was an internet law. He probably scared with the fact he can get arrested or something. Luckily he is ok.

Post by: Rox on March 22, 2013, 03:32 pm
1. It can be, when it wants to. Other then that it's pretty chill.

2. Yes and No, yes because not many people have a say and people over exaggerate with the whole promotion thingy. The reason why I think no is that rules are rules. There has to be rules. Without rules anyone can do as they please such as bypassing, violating the terms of service. If there were no rules they wouldn't even get punished meaning they'd get away with anything.

3. Both, most of the Moderators hardly come on Sploder. (I'm not mentioning names) and corresponding to the fun part is that we need more gameshows and competitions within the forums.

That is all.

Vote #1 Is the forums too serious?: Yes! Many people focus too much on trying to rank up and things like that and take the ranking system too seriously

Vote #2 - Is the forums too strict on rules?: Could say that. We only need basic rules such as no spamming,  limited swearing (there is a reason why there is a censor system) and other stuff like that.

Vote #3 - As of right now, do we need to work on moderation or fun more? Moderation is fine they are there to make sure the forums are running well, more fun could be better but i am sure the members can come up with some more fun things to do

Opinion #1 - What is the forum's number one problem?: People trying to hard to be mature and stuff, i guess.
