if there is some kind of personal problem between you or others (this goes for anyone) then perhaps its best to leave it off the forums and try and sort it amicably via PMs. I know we can't all get along, but we can at least try.

 

Thank you.


 

I've been advised by another mod to take that route and tried it before. However the other person just came here to rally support with a fairly abusive thread that wasn't exactly, er, truthful.

 

The thread was brought to my attention by a friend due to the hostile nature of it, but it was closed before I had a chance to reply, although I did have enough time to see just how many GD regulars jumped in to lend support. It's understandable as they are popular, and I am not, but it is indicative that PMs backfire.

 

So in the end, I wouldn't recommend the PM approach. However, the forum does have an "ignore" feature, which it might be best to recommend instead?

 

I'm trying it out to see if it works... :Peace:

Cheers :)

 

Hope you guys can get along in future - can't force anyone to get along obviously but I just don't want people scared off of GD, that is my main concern :)

 

Have a nice evening and weekend guys!!

There's always gonna be people you don't get along with, just try to focus on the good stuff, like this photo of an elephant visiting a sea lion :)

You can't ignore posts. It ignored personal messages from the person, not posts/threads made by them.

I have you on ignore and it works fine, I haven't seen a post of yours in weeks. Same with Danny, we all should ignore him too.

And I've been sending you many pictures of my botty in the bath.

 

Ah well, I'll send them to Spotter instead, at least he'll appreciate my botty

lol

 

Sound advice, if I had a problem with someone I would personally just not engage with them directly. Like jungleboyfruit, Im not really fond of him so instead of interacting with him, I instead say stuff to danny and danny passes it on, and vice versa.

 

I havent been overly bothered with checking pms since I gave up my beta badge, it says 5 unread, maybe from 5 people telling me they have a big problem with me.

 

I just post and reply to stuff in public, if i have done something against the rules I expect the mods to treat me like anyone else and whisper the safe word to me, and that usually gets me to stop, dont think I have ever refused a request from the mods/ctl/beta however mundane it might have been.

Can you tell Fen that I said his breath smells like Elfens trio of talking teddies please? I would say it to his face but he has bigger biceps than me and I dont want him to give me a bear hug.

I assumed it ignored posts as well, I dunno I have never done it.

I would be cautious of the PM approach, I have heard that it can get nasty and it becomes your word against theirs.

Can't people just agree to disagree or just decided "I think that person is a tool, I will ignore their posts that I dislike as they are a tool and/or troll"

For the most part, yes - but when you see a snide remark after a crappy day it can become hard to resist rising to the bait.

Nope - totally doesn't work. Does on the Capcom forum - you can only see their posts if someone else quotes them. That's how I imagined it would work.
