My honest opinion: The forums look like sh*t. Bring them back to how they were before Shawn's reign.
Good feedback guys. Just keep it constructive
I know this isn't feedback but can you remove my infractions. The reason I ask this is because I got 2 Non-Expiry ones for mentioning MfM.
QJ fell apart because there was no motive. QJ was a PSP central hub for news and homebrew releases, because there is no homebrew scene anymore, QJ has no purpose. Most of the members who joined for the PSP had gotten a Wii and PS3, so those got popular as well. But after time, the PSP scene died, so no one new really joined, and the older members got lives and moved on.
So in my opinion, I really dont know what to say to help QJ, just be patient I guess
So they decided to go their own way and start MFM.
Almost everybody moved to the new site and abandoned QJ.
In comes Shawn. He tries to convince all the people at MFM to come back. He failed to get them to agree because they didn't agree with the things he was doing with QJ. One thing led to another and he started really hating some of the old staff - such as twelve, hardrive, and Adiuvo. So basically, MFM was censored and anybody who talked about the site was to be disciplined.
Frenchb0y probably deserved an infraction, not a ban.
I don't think Chathurga deserved a permaban, but what he did was kind of out of line.
I don't get why you guys hate Mraellis so damn much.
Was he qualified to be a mod when he first got the job? Probably not. Not that many people knew who he was.
But he did do his job as a mod. He was one of the only ones who stuck around when almost every other mod decided to take a 1 month vacation since Shawn didn't really give a **** about the forums. And like he said, he cleaned up a lot of spam bots.
Just because he banned some of you and pissed you off doesn't mean you can now take a **** on him when he doesn't have the job anymore.
I'll admit it, I've never liked Mraellis, but I didn't try to embarrass him in front of everybody. Keep that crap to yourselves. Have some class, will you?
I may disagree with a lot of his opinions, but I try not to hold grudges and be civil. And actually I don't hate him at all, I might even like him (in a non gay way) tomorrow.
TBH I think there have been some very good decisions made and some very bad decisions made over the past few days.
Good: Undoing everything Shawn did wrong. QJ Gamers.
Bad: No Moderators. Unbanning everyone.
You need moderators in every time zone to deal with things like this quickly:
You've somehow turned a person who was neutral to the situation into somebody against you.
If you want to talk about it, PM me.
Yeah the no moderators obviously wasn't a good move.
2 guys alone cant moderate the forums while at the same time, try to add new things to make it better.
Seriously. Just drop it. If you hate someone so much, ignore him. Simple. Quit *****ing about it in every single post.
Also, I just saw the QJ unbans everyone thread, what a mess.
The whole thread turned into a bash mraellis thread and the admins do nothing but say Be Good or You're on a fine line mister.
Seriously, the people that bash him are considered trolls in my mind, so just ban them. If they have nothing positive to say, then don't say nothing.
@twelve, I have already reported them, or maybe there is new. I hate reporting although I have to do it, because there is that time limit between two reports :/. Anyways, I agree with you. A good choice to make the forums clean daily. I am in GMT+2. :P
@Anti-QuickJay, agreed, but he wanted a fresh start. And a fresh start it is. Let's just wait to see what will he do next.
And yeah, it is better to check up those filters (MFM, Exo).
Why the hell is there a 2 minute wait between reporting posts?
Those 6 advertising bot threads I linked to above are all still there, trying to report them all will take 12 minutes! Doesn't exactly encourage people to report posts.
Edit: Just checked and it has been 11 hours since either Sinbad or Valiant have been online. Definitely a case for needing moderators in all time zones. The coverage before wasn't perfect but at least there was someone on most of the time.
Should definitely get rid of some of the subforums.
The QJ Gamer section, is pretty much dead and useless.
well since you locked the unbanned thread I'll post my suggestion in here:
At the least notify the people unbanned..I doubt some of them even remember QJ for being banned for so long.
And one more thing: like sven said before perma's solve nothing unless the user wants to destroy the site or something.
I have more I want to say, but the itouch makes me want to slap a ho so I'll stop before I rage.
