Regarding Recent News Topics and Replies

28 September 2016 - 03:22 PM

Recently there has been an increase in controversial topics in the news section, which has led to more complaints and more arguing between members, causing me and other staff members to get involved in said topics. Look guys and gals, we have nothing against the news or free speech but you all have to remember this is a gaming community. Everyone comes from around the world, not just from your location. We are made up of people from different races, religions, nationalities and backgrounds. All with different stories or opinions. We need to learn to respect those differences. Dissing or taking pot shots at other people or countries is a bad idea. It just leads to useless arguing on forums and servers, which in turn creates rifts between members that are hard to repair.

So please be mindful of what you post. Look at if from the other person's point of view and ask yourself if this is offensive or biased. If this could cause trouble or pain. I'm not saying stop posting, I am just asking everyone (users and members) to be respectful, mindful and kind to other users and their opinions and to state your opinion in a nice, respectful and mindful manner. We get that not everyone will share the same opinion about a topic but that doesn't mean that the opposing view is getting out of hand and needs to be dealt with. We also understand that sometimes people do get carried away and yes they do need to be reminded how to behave. We really do not want to start issuing warning to people who constantly go overboard in the news section but we will if we have too.

This isn't just directed at people posting in the topics but those posting the topics. Remember we are a gaming community, most of our news should be focus on gaming technology, upcoming games, gaming events from around the world and fun and lively topics not just on politics, scandals and war.

Opinion pieces are okay as long as you show both sides of evidence not just your side. News is about giving people both sides of the story not just one. Use multiple sources, check your facts and make sure the news you are feeding viewers is 100% correct. The best opinion pieces are actually pieces that take the other person's opinions and using facts and logic refute all the other opinions claims, leaving no room for argument. We can mourn for people and their losses but don't try put blame on someone elses culture. Ideally though we should stay away from news that can cause huge debates and strife and focus more on the good news.

I am afraid that if topics about news keep getting abuse with negative posts, harsh comments and constant complaints, we will have to start locking before anyone can reply or even limit the content of what is posted more than we are having to do now. In some cases posts might even be fully removed from forums if the contents are found to be too controversial.

So lets work together and start behaving in the news section before me or any of the other leaders have to start getting harsher about posting privileges and punishments.


Clash of clans 3 year anniversary boost!

01 August 2015 - 10:14 PM

Hey guys , just putting out a reminder that if you havent you should boost your resources for 7 days. I know everyone tells you to save your gems but for a deal this good, dont!. boost and collect the extra loot for only 1 gem each. The boost only last a week but its well worth it for the extra loot!!!

 

Hope you all take advantage of this week.

Extra note, this will be the best time to loot. No one can guard their resources for 7 days straight!


CS:GO SERVER UPDATE

10 July 2015 - 08:43 PM

Hey all, so you all asked and now you have received. As of tonight (or today) our CS server has been changed to competitive mode in hopes more people will join. I'll changed it up if the mode doesnt meet with what everyone wants....but for now I picked the most popular game type.

I also added new maps and took away some old maps. Just a note that I will still be fixing some issues and bugs, like right now the warm up time is too long...and a couple other things that may come up so bare with me and my crazy crazy schedule right now.

Sorry for the delay in gettin this done, I have been caught up in some personal matters recently and hope you all like the changes.
