Proposing better forum moderation.

A number of legitimate threads have been locked, while caod and c&p remains troll infested.

For example, there is a legitimate reason a miner carebear would make a post in industry section seeking advice on hulkageddon. Locking that thread and linking the official thread in C&P started by hulkageddon organizer does not help. The population there is different. It would be just tear delivery, and the carebear in question will get no advice.

Assembly Hall threads should not be locked for being "duplicate" of main discussion thread in another subforum which spawned it. If mod has to lock something, lock the main thread instead. Locking Assembly Hall thread effectively prevents a vote.

There's stuff like this:
http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1472487&page=1#6
The link given for duplicate thread leads to the very same thread that's been locked. It was also the only thread on that subject in Assembly Hall subform, locking it prevents a vote.

Then there's this:
http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1471013
Locked for trolling. I can see how that's a sensitive issue...

I agree. While I am glad that they try, there are just too few of them for how many posts are made a day.

A good way to do it is a mod for every forum category, and some extras for the high traffic ones.

No-brainer here.

Doubtful anything will come of it though. Look how long things have trundled along in their current way.

Growing a community requires a place for new people to get information.

Ask a question in these forums just about anywhere, and it is a dice roll on whether the first to respond will help or flame you for ignorance.

The un-moderated flamers and non-informative posts pile up, generating a negative feedback that makes it worse as time goes by.

The random lockdowns posted above are also a problem.

I stopped reccomending these forums(other than specific thread links) to new people a long time ago. I point them to EVE Uni or other sites where they have a chance at being answered in an intelligent and respectful manner.

Sometimes they do let a bit too much trolling go about, but I like the eve forums the way they are. I've been in other games where the devs insta-lock ANYTHING that puts their game in a critical light, or any comment that they deem trolling (and usually they don't enforce the rules even close to equally for all players).

So, in short, no, the forums are ok as they are.

While I agree with this overall, I think there are some forum areas that should be held to a higher standard - New Player Help, and the Assembly Hall for example.
