I want to point out that most people complaining about threads being deleted on the AoC forums, are people who's threads have been deleted. Sadly, they don't know how a forum is run. I doubt any deletion power is given to any of these "volunteer" mods. Most likely, the threads are being "soft" deleted, and moved to a place where they can be reviewed by people who can actually delete posts. I have looked around the forums of Age of Conan, and see nothing wrong with what they are doing. People seriously need to get a grip, and learn how to post. You can easily post negative threads that have some substance to them. Threads that start off in CAPS, use certain ways to get around the cuss word censor, or are one liners should always be deleted. Anything pertaining to politics, racism are deleted also. Anything that revolves around bashing a moderator or peoples names in reference, as an example, "Famine sucks", or "@Vichen", will get a delete. Now that's not to say they are not in the wrong. One or two of their mods in particular, talk way to much for being a moderator.
I think in the end, peeple just skip reading the guidelines, and think whatever they post shouldnt be removed. They think 15$ a month is enough to freely deface that said company. If anyone read the subscription article Mark jacobs posted, he noted that 15$ a month barely pays for the servers being up and salarys. Not alot of profit is given out unless the sub numbers are substantial, in Blizzards case. Therefore thinking your $15 means you can go on a forums board of a company and say whatever, is stupid. Your 15$ garners you playtime and customer support. Forums are a bonus. Most companies should just quit putting up forums. They used to be a form of information, but now they have turned into a debacle of forums demanders, cryers, and people who think there 15$ means more than 15$. Age of Conan is at no lost. It will be around for quite sometime, regardless of how many people you try to get to cancel. This is not Jerry Mcguire.
Sadly I love reading the forums, because it shows how sad people can really get. I am sure most will read this as a wall of text, or w/e. I'm sure some will even flame me stating, NO WAY! I'm sure the OP will come in and say, did you see the links of threads being deleted. But sadly you would fail in one thing. READING. You did not read me type moderators cannot delete topics. Only move them to be seen by the appropriate people then deleted. You want to get mad because your topic was deleted, then make a better topic. The rules are right there, try following them. And let's be honest, these same people are the ones who don't read the rules of the road either. And bypass road signs stating 35mph and do 50.
