Gamewatch.org [Nov. 1st, 2004|01:45 am]
So, let's talk about it. What would you like to see?

Edit: Hello all. I'm sorry about this, but I've turned on screening for anonymous comments in this thread and the top one on the blog. We have a troll who has been spamming comments every few hours or so, and I just don't have time to keep coming in here and deleting them. Rest assured if you post anything that ISN'T vulgar, I will unscreen it as soon as I see it. Hopefully the troll will lose interest soon and I can lift this.
Edit 1/4/2005: Comment screening turned back off; thank you all for your patience. =)

I agree with everything here except your last sentence. ;) We will definitely moderate Gamewatch much more thoroughly than the blog -- here on the blog there is an issue of free speech, and I have been very reluctant to remove any comments, but on Gamewatch the primary objective, and indeed the entire purpose of the site, will be credibility, which does mean we will have to choke down on spam and trolling. However, I agree with you that the community itself will self-moderate; we will provide the beginning structure of placing verified testimonials higher on the display list than anonymous ones, and a rating-moderation system like Slashdot's could be considered additionally.

Which last sentence? The equation, or the blog being an example?

I was saying the blog was a good example of anonymity bringing out immaturity in people. I wasn't saying you were moderating it =c)
