Ability to hide 1 word replies

  • 9

Trying to follow a conversation on the forums is annoying with all those 'thanks', 'lol' and 'nice' replies.

It would be awesome if we had an option to hide every reply consisting of only 1 word, since (lets be real) those don't add anything to the conversation anyway.

nice



XDDDDD totally agree though, not a lot of constructive convos going on in the forums...

Hello, I'm glad that you brought this up. We are actively brainstorming a way to reshape our forums and prevent "spam" in the form of one-word replies! If you have any suggestions, please let us know! :)

Linking some point gain with participation will always cause a lot of low effort content.
Hell, even reddit has this issue and their karma is literally worthless

How do you think the point system should be shaped? 


Well, a forum should be for people who WANT to participate, not for people who HAVE TO in order to get points.

 

People will always take the route of lowest resistance, so if the daily is 'post something on the forums and get 5 points', you will get 1 word posts, or in the case of 'post news to get points' low effort news, double posted news and so on.

 

Maybe a better way would be to offer some mini-games to collect points and keep the people on the page, and let the forums grow naturaly, i guess if the people are hanging around on the page some of them will start to use the forum more often.

But if you insist on keeping the points system included in the forum, please give us at least the ability to hide every 1 word reply. That way it would be at least in a state where you could actually discuss something without it being a pain.

You have giveaways only people with level 20 can get, so people will try to get to that level as fast as possible, with as low efford as possible. Give them a good way to do that without spamming and your spam problem is fixed.

Agreed. Implementing some minigames to gather ARP is a really good idea. Meanwhile, why not also induce some ARP earning activities by perhaps having players read through some interesting news articles and interact with some of the videos? It won't be easy to implement properly but it will be a whole lot better than spam posting. Or maybe we should just build the first Spam bot nuker and auto-nuke all spam and duplicate posts.
