I don't know. I kind of like how it is. And I don't recall PV threads ever provoking discussion we aren't already seeing in the political threads.


I never really cared for PV but, even though I don't remember which ones exactly, he at least had a few decent threads that I didn't mind participating in. They were a lot better than the Deyre threads at any rate.

I'm also hoping things will settle down a bit after the election is over and people get used to the idea that the world hasn't ended.

That "Are you a polite and considerate person?" topic does look especially toxic though. Someone ought to report that qualeshia3 person for inciting courtesy.


Excuse me!

This is true everywhere. CR isn't in any way especially bad, and personally I prefer an inactive mod to an overactive one.

It is true almost everywhere... except places with an effective block system, where mods only deal with issues of harassment through the creation of other accounts.

Which is why that's my suggestion.

A block system doesn't make mods any more accountable, though. Just less necessary.

Sigh. Which is why my suggestion is a block system and the removal of mods for anything other than harassment through creating separate accounts.

I understand what you are saying.

Please understand what I am saying.

I said accountability OR....

Thank you.

It was only a joke about how out of place that thread looked with most of the others in the OP's image. Not meant as an attack... Well, unless you really have been secretly encouraging proper manners and good behavior in others. Politeness is inexcusable on the internet, you know.

Don't mind my craziness, I've not been getting enough sleep lately.

Glad someone is pointing this out, there has been a noticeable change in the forums lately.

I miss the days of PV threads and the general lightheartedness of GD. Those threads actually provoked nice diacussion instead of flame wars.

I told Bjaker in a fairly detailed post that this would happen back when I sort of beta tested the forum changes that did away with Extended discussion 2 years ago.

It would be a simple thing to reintroduce some sort of extra forum to place contentiou-*cough cough* I mean, academic threads in. But community manager employees like him haven't been seen in ages. I really believe that these forums are dead in the water these days because Crunchyroll no longer prioritizes halfways decent community relations. Current mods are probably just treading said water at this point, going off of very few (if any) orders from the company officials.

Ahh, don't worry about it too much... I have been here less then 2 weeks and have already had (at least) 4 of me posts "modded". But this is like I thing I have, conspiracy I tell you.


In any case, I assure you they are still around and alive.......

It'll blow over eventually. However fetid reality sludge will pour over any open manhole cover and into the depths of human psyche.
