Hey everyone, I have noticed a few people complaining about a general deterioration of posting quality on Tamriel Foundry. Some of the common complaints (which I also recognize as happening) involve:
- Trolling by individuals who have lost interest in ESO, but not yet moved on from the TF community.
- Uninformative or time-wasting topics in theorycrafting forums.
- Overabundance of guild recruiting (bumping / spamming).
I also think it's important for us to admit that the frequency of moderation has perhaps declined a bit since before the game launched. This was always going to be a natural and expected outcome as a result of the game actually being playable. At heart, we are all fans of the game itself, and care most about spending time in Tamriel, rather than policing the TF forums.
Posts that reduce the quality of the TF forums, but are not moderated, are not left untouched as a result of lax site policies or us not caring, we simply don't have time to check all the posts which are made on Tamriel Foundry. I wanted to really urge all members of the TF communtiy who care about the long-term health of this site and it's community to more frequently take advantage of the post reporting feature which is attached to every post on the TF site.
The post report button looks like this (), and is incredibly helpful in directing moderator attention towards a thread that is getting out of hand, or a user which is damaging the flow of discussion. My utmost thanks to those of you who DO use this feature, thanks for doing your part to keep the TF site clean!
