  • Yeah, but still that troll can bump those threads whenever he wants.

    Alright let me ask this. If we let the threads die then what happens? They disappear and we don't need to worry about then correct? If we can solve the problem by ourself then why don't we? Haha

  • Someone like @Ohyoupokedme or @Saltlick305 should be a mod anyone agree ?

    These shitty trolls have gone too far. If there's a better solution than this, so be it.

    Just ride out the storm don't think Mods can do anything but ban the account but there websites to get fake accounts etc no matter what you do find ways around it.

    As we all know troll attacks have been getting worse as of late. Trolls have been more aggressive in their attacks, going so far as to post child pornography. If you look at The Walking Dead forum, you'd get the idea. This place is supposed to be a clean place for people, and in some countries child pornography is a crime! For example, Canada, where I live. Trolls are not only insulting and ruining the community, but also risking people's lives by increasing the chance of getting arrested for unintentionally viewing such distasteful images.

    Yes, mods has the ability to ban user accounts. But that does not stop trolls from coming back with new accounts and posting the same crap. I believe and a majority of the community would rather have IP bans now, after latest events. I'm seriously considering of not being here as much, perhaps never again, after the crap I've seen. Also I believe we need moderators who live in different time zones so we have at least 1 mod around all day long, per se. Please Telltale Games, give moderators the ability to IP ban!

    Please help this community in keeping this place safe!

    YEAH!

  • Then isn't he doing what you want to do anyways? Either way all your posting on his thread is does is popping it to the top for more to log on and see. Sorry if I sound rude, it just doesn't do any good to keep then alive haba

  • Choosing mods via popularity contests does not a good mod make.

    Well, when more people log on they will see the Troll threads and know that there is a troll. If we leave it like it's normal he can just wait until the next day and bump all of those threads and even post MORE pictures. I do think that your idea is good though, but I only see it working is once the mods get on we just tell them that there is a troll who is still not banned yet, which would be a good plan too.

  • Yeah I would be too. I'd probably abuse that power the moment I see a troll; instantly banned.

    The alert threads have the pictures in them. You're talking about warning others on the thread by shoving it in their face.

    "There is porn on the forum, it's right here."

    The troll can make an account in 5 minutes. Whether the mods ban him now or not is fairly inconsequential, if he wants he can be back on tomorrow morning either way.

    The best way to stop him from bumping the threads tomorrow is to save the threads he has posted/the trolls actual account, and when a mod makes himself known then direct said mods to the threads/trolls account. Otherwise you are just keeping porn at top of the board. And no one wants that xD (well, the troll might thank you)

  • That is my worry too. But sometimes we have to live with the consequences for a greater good.

  • Damn. Then it would have a certain level to be IP banned. Take these p0rn pictures for example.

    IP ban would not change anything

  • No probably not. While both posters are great users and fun to have around they aren't sticklers for the rules like a mod needs to be.

    100% agreed.

    I'm really having second thoughts of how much I want to use this site after these attacks. I know the moderators can't be around all the time but that simply means there should be more of them. Especially when you consider the time zone differences. it would be pretty handy if we could IP ban though that's for sure.

  • How so?

  • Yeah, you have lots of points. I can see where you are getting that from. Well, the troll is banned, so none of this matters anymore unless he comes back again.

  • Awesome! Do you agree there should be more than just 4 mods? Like 20 mods instead. So the community forums can be monitored 24/7!
