Title: Watch what you say
Description: A reminder


Animal - July 27, 2009 09:07 AM (GMT)
So, I've noticed that a lot of you are getting in with your competitive nature now that we've got our arcade.
This is good, and it's great to see a lot of you enjoying yourselves trying to beat your friends at whatever games possible.
But I'd just like to say, please be careful with what you say when you comment on the highscores list for the games.
Some comments are getting a bit cocky, and soon if we're not careful someone will get angry at what's said, so please just watch it. :)
Just a little reminder. :blush:

EDIT: First thread in this forum ftw.

Thats right animal, sportmanship above all :)

Animal please just do me and the clan a favour and say which comments are being cooky... just for those who did it, dont do it again.

P.S. Was it me? :shy:

> Here's the deal:
> The arcade has a separate censoring system, and I can't moderate all the comments on all the games.
> For now, I'm not using the censoring system. I trust that you can mind your own words, but if I start getting too many reports on bad language or offensive language, I'll have to censor the words. If that keeps happening, I'll have to de-activate commenting at all.
> I know that I won't have to, but this is just a warning. ;)

There aren't really many, I'm just getting in for the future incase they build up, but already things like "Haha owned" etc can make people a bit annoyed, I suppose. We just need a reminder that the arcade is here for our enjoyment, and it's good to be a bit competitive, but remember to show sportsmanship (thanks for the word Tom :P) and don't post stuff like that just because you got above someone, because they might get above you again and say something like "really now?" and a flame war could start.


No, not you Tom. :P

'haha owned'? jeez thats hardly anything to get angry at, if you get angry at that, you have issues.

I said things like that, you'll never know how people react and it's not that that can get people angry, it's what starts it, as people go on to try beat each other and in return the comments that come back.

Dylan is not about the flame itself... for example im in runescape, in a clan event, and i hit a 5 on you and i say 0wned! Im sure you dont get upset.

In the arcade, if you do pass someone and start making cocky comments like u u cant beat me loser; owned; you sack at this game; people will try and beat the highscores just to flame back... and thats not the purpose of the arcade. ^_^
