I've been seeing some comments lately on certain pages. They're not hateful or anything like that - they're just unmoderated and it's a total mess. To the administrators: if I could freely express my proposals for comment moderation. Please state your reasons regardless of whether you support or reject this policy proposal.
What are your suggestions?
I would like to propose a set of rules for moderating comments:
|What Should Be Allowed||What Should Not Be Allowed|
|Advising a user to not do something that is against the rules||Mini-modding|
|Posting messages relating to Minecraft||Posting messages relating to real life.|
|Expressing your excitement about something new||USING ALL-CAPS LIKE THIS TO DO SO|
|Discussing a topic in a civilized and gentlemanly manner||Arguing about a topic resulting in all-out flame wars|
Wasn't this table on Pocket Edition Wiki?
Yes. To be clear, I did not copy it word for word. I left out certain rules from that post and paraphrased what I left in.
You sound so boring...
I know I do. I hate to express everything like a gentleman with manners, common sense, and respect as well as using proper grammar at the expense of sounding like a politician. But I stick to this style mainly becau—I'm going way off-topic, aren't I?
Why create this blog post when you can just notify an admin of your proposal?
I want this to be an open discussion. I want to see what everybody thinks - even the admins.
They could just disable page comments altogether, you know?
Well okay, there's that.
Can I suggest something that you left out? I have ideas...
Of course. Like I said, this is an open discussion.
