Very urgent!
Submitted By Abister on 12/04/20
Mars Explorer, Abister, Community, Player Chatter 

Ripped from a forum site I used to go to when I was roughly around the average age of the people that play this game:

"20) Don't feed the trolls. If you notice someone is trolling the forum, don't respond to them. A mod will deal with them soon enough. This includes SPAM posts--don't respond to them." 

If you see someone is trolling or being rude, don't say anything. That is all.

This is not targeted at anyone in particular, just simple guidelines.

Ya, but would you count it as spamming? If it is then I will probably resolve it.....

Feeding trolls can sometimes be REALLY fun.
Have you heard of scam-baiting?
 
Anyways, I must inscribe this rule into my brain to use during times of crisis.
I don't follow it at all well.

@Ender: Feeding the trolls, whether you are totally owning the troll or not, just makes things worse. I need to follow this rule a wee bit as well.

@Etah: What post are you talking about? If you talking about the DoS one, I would not consider it spam since it feels kind of like a bug report.

Funny though Abister that you would be banned from that site if you used the title of this post.

Half of those rules dont reply to mars.
 
Half of those rules is probably the reason that forum is half way there to dead.
 
Half of those rules would make mars just as dead.

Half of those rules make up a good post
 
Half of those rules make up a lot of problems in mars.

Stryker, that forum is thriving like crazy, and it has been for the past 7 years. I only think we should follow the "don't feed the trolls" and a few others. I just said where I got it from. Trust me, I'd probably stay there if I was still interested in photoediting. Sometimes it feels like you just skim through things and hardly ever bother to pay attention to detail, Stryker.

Others we should follow:

"9) Be courteous to others. Constructive criticism is generally welcome and encouraged. Starting fights and being rude is not."

"11) Don't reply to very old threads."

@Abister - Please, who is this "Stryker" you speak of? Or is this name on the page and I simply don't see it?

Abi it's been 4 years and it hasn't been thriving much. The same players have been on here for 2 years and we have lost 2 or 3 people. And I was saying unbiased opinions.

@Krunchy: "9) Be courteous to others. Constructive criticism is generally welcome and encouraged. Starting fights and being rude is not."
I believe broken rule? Or two?

Read my comments again, one of them i said they were my unbiased opinion. Tell me, am I missing something? All I'm saying is that to my opinions it looks to be like a 50/50 good or bad.
 
All I'm doing is comparing those rules to the problems right now on mars.

On an unrelated note, I remember there was this dude that made 9 or 10 duplicates of the same post, which included a very, very, extremely disturbing poem that was gory. I forget the guys username
