    Default Please fight against negativity? :s

    As random and awkward the topic sounds, I find it a bit depressing to go onto the forums and find some topics with people insinuating that Rift is dying e.t.c...
    I mean, I think there should be a GM fighting these posts and removing them ASAP, otherwise it can give REALLY bad impressions to newcomers.

    I mean... if you were looking for a game to play, went onto its forums, looked for a topic that would possibly describe to you what the game is like, and suddenly you see these topic names:
    "IS RIFT DYING?!??!?"
    "RIFT KILLED MY DOG"
    "A lot of kittens died.... because of Rift"
    "A rift opened up in my bag and ate my hamster!"

    e.t.c....

    Pweez? :>

    Anti-troll: Please do something about it, It is not very nice... :P

    Read everything, believe nothing.

    The only instance that leaves me confused and bewildered are the people who claim to have quit the game, yet they continue coming here to talk about how bad the game is. I don't understand the logic in it. When I leave a game, I don't tell people I'm leaving, and I certainly don't stick around to talk about it. I just leave. Is there nothing better to do with ones time?

    Exactly! Ok, yes I admit - I sometimes rant about WoW in the zone channels on Rift :P but that's about it XD I let it rest there and then.

    But generally, why make a public scene out of it?! :P

    It's to Trion's credit that those posts are left to dissolve on their own. Everyone's entitled to an opinion and I reserve the right to change mine by the day, or even the hour. If all the posts here were of the fanboy variety, it would be a boring forum indeed.

    I, personally, see more hostile negativity directed towards those who express their disappointments with the game, but to each his own.

    Well, I don't think Fanboys posts would be fun either, constructive posts.. those could shine :/... I mean, why post something completely and utterly useless/pointless/troll-like/fail/boring/rant'y just to stir up some anger...

    You DO see some positive posts... but they're hugely overrun by nega-posts :P (hey! that's a great name for it XD)

    It doesnt change my game... at least its entertaining to read.
    I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

    Medication always helps me with negativity.

    Ummm...
    .....replace the "_" with a "u."

    Damn Rift-forum word censor has no sense of humor.

    I think Trion deserve some credit for the way they handle the forum, there are other games where anything negative is removed, where even the mention of another game (however innocently) means closed thread.

    The only thing I would say is that they could do with a bit of duplicate thread control either by merging threads or closing duplicates early and linking to the similar thread where the discussion can be continued. (this would also help in the impression to newcomers - e.g instead of the 10 "rogues are OP you've ruined the game" threads, you'd have the one)

    I still find their (TRION) approach a bit heavy handed here.
