These rules are good, but i think that thete should be a warning system where ypu get 2 warnings befote being banned.

( That would mean that the ppl who derailed this topic are gonna get a warning. )

The people that derailed the thread should get a slap in the balls. Somehow they think that they can do exactly the oposite of what devs are asking for because they have been hanging around enough or something. Like seriously guys i don't see the need for this low level trolling, the rules are just fine.

Back to the topic on hand, the rules are fine for the main forums, so long as the offtopic section can remain our safe haven - our "ghetto" if you will.

Overzealous moderation is going to kill the enjoyment of these forums if our banter and funny political talk becomes censored, even in parts of the forum where it's appropriate. Keep it in mind that while the people coming from the kickstarted do need a sanitized experience in the main forum as to not be too weirded out before being broken in, this community is weird which is what makes it so fun. Trying to moderate that out of the forums entirely would hurt everyone's experience.

Off-topic = off-topic; you don't have to worry about much intervention there. Other sections are on-topic, so that is what yo do.

If with "overzealous moderation" you're referring to the high amount of deleted comments, then overzealous is the way to go. Obviously a lot of people are testing the waters, but continuously breaking the rules in order to have us intervene and then complain about intervention is a surefire way to make the forums feel like a police state.

As soon as that Kickstarter finally gets here, I think we'll find it a lot easier to stay on topic and have meaningful discussions.

The thing is, we don't really want to ban words, especially in an off-topic conversation between long-time members that know each other well (. A word in itself is empty. There's a difference between some guys joking around (be it funny or not) and actual racist or homophobic intent.

This does not mean we want people to go on a controversial rampage in the off-topic section, but we're not going to be preying on every little thing.

Keep in mind that a moderator/dev decides himself when you're going too far. We've discussed this topic briefly to get on the same page and this is more or less what we agreed on. For now. You might still get a warning if someone deems it appropriate, don't take my words as a get-out-of-jail-free card.

You have the off topic section for your funny political talk, if all you do is derail threads in the main boards with political talk then you cannot complain when there are consequences. We don't want to constantly read about politics on a forum about a video game and neither do many others of this community aswell as newcomers. Adapt or leave, simple as that.
