When I joined these forums almost a year ago, it was a rather small, friendly community, interested in discussing and sharing opinions on the Card Game. 

 

The last few months, especially in this General forum, I think discussions have really gone downhill. Instead of talking about the game itself and hearing each other out, users snap at and insult each other and start flame wars over their different opinions, or sometimes seemingly just because they're bored. It's like coming to a board of 10-year-olds.

 

Since I've seen several members both get dragged down into this and wasted energy trying to get topics back on track (I think I'm guilty of both), I'd like to remind everyone that there is an "Ignore user" feature in your profile settings. I thought I'd have to request one, but it's right there.

 

If a user repeatedly whines in threads and spreads bitterness or makes personal attacks instead of contributing to the discussion in a civilised manner, don't feed the troll. Just press "ignore". It will make your forum experience so much better.

Wait so you won't see any of their posts on any threads?

Also I agree with you, it has pretty much seemed this way since I joined in February.

Yes! You can choose to ignore their posts, signatures and any private messages sent to you. I have used Adblock Plus for Firefox for a while now to get rid of the Comment section on Youtube as well, and it has definitely improved web browsing.

True, i agree. A very good game like lotr-lcg doesnt deserve a 'dark' forum like this lately

Another option is to hit the "Report" link on each horrible post and eventually, if the person keeps getting reported, they'll be kicked from the forum. If we all do it, it shouldn't be long before they're booted.

I once shot an arrow through the pupil of a pig's eye from 300 yards away! Sadly, I was aiming for a different pig.

or, if there are folks that constantly bring negativity to the forums...why doesn't everyone stop responding to the threads they create? if no one (or only a few) respond to what they post, it creates less of a reason for them to continue coming back.

 

but yes, i have ignored a few people. :)

Wow, so if I'd ignore everyone I'd have these forums for me alone? :ph34r:

Ok, this is not so cool as you promised, because now there's a white bar instead of a post that asks me "View it anyway?"

 

 

so...

 

 

 

tempting...

This option may be better - as a filter for infractions rather than a blanket ignoring of anything a user says/

It is depressing that this forum post exists at all.

I agree that I have felt less like reading and posting on this forum in the last few months than previously, which is very sad.

Too many flame wars and internet shouting matches can indeed ruin the experience of internet fora. I found this image funny, and thought that it fit here. People seem afraid that this is where we are headed...

I may have to bite the bullet and do this as well but I don't want him giving incorrect rules to new players.

Hmmm people is people. And you know what? They are different! !! That why if somewhere have people start talk and after became to dispute and even come to war.... but that how is the world working. We all here from different countries different cultures so just accept it and choose what you need.

Wizard is never late.......
