    [SUGGESTION] General Forum Mod(?)

    Note* Don't even bother thinking that I want this job, that is not what I'm implying AT ALL. (Trolls will troll)

    I don't know if there is one already implemented but the General forum of MPGH is just a huge spamfest. (This is not including the Spam Section obviously >_>) Everyday I take a bit of my time to browse this forum and everyday 90% of the threads included are spam and it seems at times that even the mods tend to join in on the spamfest. Now don't go about suggesting to me "Just report the spam then noob" When in fact people have been banned for mass reporting before am I right? And since General forum is just spam in itself I can't be bothered to get myself banned as well Seeing as I got an infraction (which was reversed by Dave the only man with a sense of logic on this forum) for calling someone annoying.... then why is everyone getting away with the spam there? People are calling each other faggots left and right. Creating fake suicide threads just cause another user didn't <3 them back on an MSN chat, and using the General Forum as an alternate for Facebook. Seriously, go take 2 minutes out of your time and I guarantee you'll come up with 10 spam threads before you hit a legitimate one. The only conclusion I came up with is that there are no mods implemented in that section or they're clearly doing a half ass job at it. Or possibly there might be a "Super Mod" or whatever you call it here that is implemented to Mod several forums and is clearly paying zero attention to this one. So ya, just my two cents.

    And if you disagree... then you clearly create spam threads in that section.
    You don't have the balls to de-rep me, pussy.

    The General section is the colon of MPGH. It's where all the shit goes. Most of it isn't spam -- it's exactly what the section is made for; light discussion and generally "hanging out".

    Isn't shit and spam practically the same thing? Stupid pointless annoying messages?

    I assumed G mods were supposed to take care of the General Section.... so the real question is... why aren't they?

    What happened? I know I haven't been around long. Any reason as to why this is? Or is just cause G mods+ could handle it themselves?

    Do me a favor, just look into the General section, and look at the names of the threads. Do you see any that say "ihjsahduiaw" or anything like that? Not really, no. If you look at JUST the names of each thread, you will realize that the threads are just there to start a conversation piece. The general section is sort of like the "chill zone", where you can be who you are and do what you want as long as you don't go too far. It's fairly general.

    Ok so comments such as "tl;dr" or "ur a faggot" thats all just general nice talk for the General Section right? How about you do me a favor and take a look at the posts INSIDE these threads. Besides a thread's title doesn't have to be random letters for it to not be spam. i.e. "I'm going to go commit suicide" is something a long the lines with one of the threads in the General Section with the user saying he's gonna commit suicide over another user not <3 them back on MSN? Is that what you call chill talk? Open your eyes, theirs so much spam going on it's completely blinded you. Maybe I should have been more clear by instead stating posts within threads are clearly spam.

    General is one of the most active section of mpgh, and obviously it is full of spam. You wanting to control all the spam on it is just like you killing the whole section, wouldn't work.

    Also, Dave already posted the "Forum Etiquette" thread, exactly to mitigate the problems related to flaming/trolling caused by certain users (inside and outside of General).
