Question: If "backseat modding" is so damned bad, should we just sit on our lazy asses letting topics fall apart or should we try to help? And no, I don't care if you staff people edit my posts, it won't change a thing.

stop swearing. There are 9 year olds on this forum too -.-

There's profile options for either seeing swears or not. If they set it on and see something, that's their problem.

It's called "reporting" or "PMing a Mod or Admin about it"

Times today are just as bad what with the video game market being made up of 80% first person shooters that are 80% brown and 20% black and 100% bloom.

People have gotten countless bans and warns for trying to help mods with work. Might as well not even read half of the crap here if it's just going to urge you to "break" the "rules".

Maybe it's because they somehow screw it up or end up in the rule-breaking itself?

Even saying " Isn't that spam?" or "Can you please stop?" is illegal.

*cough* REPORT IT *cough*
Just making a whole stupid topic or post about it doesn't help. I mean, it's like everyone forgot how to report to an admin or mod. It's like thinking that you do it makes you look like a sissy or something.

Addressing the issue directly in the topic without moderational powers is identical in nature to "feeding the troll."  Nothing gets done by merely yelling back.  I will also let you know that since I first was promoted to B^3 mod, I have received exactly zero PMs from members concerning behavior in a certain thread of sorts, and the reported threads I have seen were already taken care of when I logged in(not that very many reports happen anymore either).  In other words, this "backseat modding" not only prevents the staff from being informed of the situation from the get-go, but it leaves a bigger mess to clean up, leaves a sour taste in the forum, and slowly leads to a loss in forum interests and values as a whole.  The solution?

WHEN YOU SEE RULE-BREAKING OCCUR IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, PM THE MODS OR ADMINS AND LET THEM HANDLE IT.

There's a difference between giving advice and sounding like you are giving a command. Chaos just tends to seem rude when he gives his advice to me. Plus, he should have PM'd ssf about it instead of getting off-topic with his post. I'm sorry but that is a little irratating to me.

Rules have been updated somewhat.
