This is great news and I hope it leads to a positive change in the general forum.

Yeah, it would be a refreshing change if they clamp down on all the nonconstructive negative posts and pointless subjective rants. It get's tedious and distracts from more constructive discussion (which does not mean no negative comments about the game, but rather constructive discussion of both negative and positive without so much hyperbole and drive-by shots at the game).

I dont think so, imho you decided to make this in the worst time in the worst way.

Did i elaborate enough my reply or will my post be deleted?
Might I make a suggestion that you read all the dev posts in this thread before spouting out nonsense like that? They already said they aren't going to just ban people for looking at them funny it's when a thread or post is clearly just trolling that it will be quietly removed or an infraction given out, as long as you aren't clearly just looking to make trouble then you'll be fine.

IMO it's needed with the sheer amount of hatred, bashing and trolling going on in the forums nowadays so if the next few days are about cleaning it up, I say go for it,.

And I would especially appreciate it if they can weed out all the company and developer bashing that goes on here. I've never seen so much tolerance of such bad behavior and I hope they force it down several notches through enforcement now.

Hmm, another welcome addition might be to remove locked threads instead of just disabling them. Quite frankly, even the thread titles can be quite upsetting, lol. Even a "Thread Graveyard" sub-forum would be great. Just something I wanted to put out there.

That doesn't mean we want to eliminate negative feedback, but we do want to cut down on the insults, hostility, and other behaviors that sometimes make the forums inhospitable. We want to encourage people to provide us with useful feedback that we can take to the developers. We also want to remove people who are just here to insult others and bash the game for entertainment.
Really? One of the most common criticisms I saw before all the layoffs and the community team blackout was that you were the "forum nazi's"

I saw several dozen threads about how they were unsubbing because they couldn't leave any feedback without getting infractions or merged or banned.

Do you really think that becoming even more strict is the right answer?

Do you really think anyone unsubbed because they had a thread merged? No... dude, no.

I very much welcome this. Looking forward to seeing it and thanks for dealing with this problem.
