First off you can check out Zar's and Carole's blogs about this:

Here and Here

But I decided to create my own blog about this topic. If you remember PMC about a month ago, even less, a couple weeks ago, you would remember a great site with little to no trolls (besides the ones that dislike content). However now PMC is filled with many trolls, and people "leaving" and people getting upset over gifs, etc. This is all quite foolish and starting an "uprising" for no good reason.

First off, people are completely trolling the forums. They post random threads and they literally troll other people. Moderators have been getting quite annoyed by this and now they aren't even giving out warnings. They are deleting threads when they really DON'T need to. They shouldn't have to ever because PMC, in my opinion, should be one of the most troll free gaming sites. I don't know what started this "uprising", in fact I'm really not sure anyone knows, but this has to do something with trolls. Obviously trolls are born in any condition, any forum thread, and are destined to just annoy the heck out of us. They complain with no good reason to and that's what really annoys people. Apparently they find it fun and think that annoying the Moderators is a jolly good time. Then, once they get banned all they have to do is create a new account and start all over. Even if the Moderators ban their IP's, there is always a way around it and to create a new account. It isn't possible to have a troll-free site, however they should definitely be decreased. This main thing in the forums has been causing PMC to really suffer, with people leaving as I will talk about in this next paragraph.

People "quitting" PMC because of the trolls is also sad and annoying. I do realize it isn't all because of the trolls but there have been MANY threads lately about how people are quitting PMC for either no reason, or to fit with the crowd, or because of trolls. They also try to "make a point" when they are wrong, by leaving. They think that the Moderators or people will care enough to beg them to stay, so they appear "respected", or "tough", even though that is by far NOT the case. If you are planning to "quit" because of that, or to fit with the crowd, you sir/ma'am, are stupid. I guarantee you no one will care, especially if you make a big deal out of it to a point where you create a THREAD about the case. If it is an important matter, contact a Moderator or Cyprezz instead of telling the whole public.

Lastly, there are people complaining about those lick gifs. This is by far the most STUPIDEST thing to complain about. THEY ARE JUST AVATARS. I mean c'mon people! Why do you get so annoyed when people find something funny or entertaining? Like your teachers and parents always told you, worry about yourself! I really don't care what people are doing with their avatars because it's their choice. That's why Cyprezz gave people the choice of picking their avatar instead of him giving everyone a default one, which I'm sure you would hate even more if he did that (which he will never do).

Other than that, if you wanna support this cause, go visit Emorak's forum thread about the topic and he will create you a graphic for the cause. To check out the forum thread, click here.

The attractment of the trolls is not because the site did something, its because minecraft got so much more popular, and I guess when everyone on a website is immature, unorganized, and trolls (minecraftforums) they all go find another place to corrupt, and we are being hit now.

What? minecraftforum.net is pretty good! You have to ask people for help when you want to find a thread because the search feature is really bad, but other than that, it's great!

I think there should be a place where to report annoying and trolling people.

And if someone is mentioned too much.

They have to be banned.

Or you begin with a trusted status or something like that.

And people can click on something to give a down vote to a person and with every 20 votes you get a status down

So from:





Last warned

its a good idea but then trolls would go around and vote people down and get them banned.

Then if this was implemented, everyone would easily get banned and PMC would become an abandoned website with only trolls i think

I think it is a good idea, but an Admin would need to approve for the Banned rank.

Also, allow people to vote up, so if the person makes up for what they did ("My Name Is Earl" Reference!)

Also, those with higher ranks would have a greater say. Example, maybe a Trusted Member's vote is worth five, as a Last Warned's is worth 1.
