    The problem with shitposting

    This issue can't be ignored any longer.

    Excessive shitposting really tends to ruin a lot of games here, making days (mostly D1) almost unreadable and destroys some player's motivation to play, severely dropping this site's quality at the same time.

    This site has plenty of examples of games with a lot of shitposting and some without, just look at the difference.

    When some players sign in games with no intention to play whatsoever, shitpost all the way through d1 and need to be policy lynched, that shows there's a big problem with the entire site, why do such players get a free pass everytime ?

    I also don't think having hosts adding rules against it and modkilling shitposters wouldn't make that much of a difference in the long run, this needs to be dealt with by the staff.

    We also had cases of players seeing their mistake and improving, so why doesn't the FM staff, for example, PM the known shitposters at first to just discuss about it, and if this doesn't help, take action against it, like ban them for future signups ?

    Yeah, i know, but by letting them run free, we are kinda banning the good players instead, as they lose all motivation to play, in the end it's just a matter of which players we want to keep, the shitposters or the good ones ?

    How does shitposting "[make] days (mostly D1) almost unreadable and [destroy] some player's motivation to play, severely dropping this site's quality at the same time"?

    I can understand the problem you have with players who solely shitpost -- and thus make no serious contribution to the game, but I think shitposting in and of itself is not a problem. We are not robots, we don't have to be serious all the time. I find games with little shitposting to be not entertaining and games with a good ratio of banter & jokes/serious posts to be much more fun to read and play in.

    Also, I don't understand this: "shitpost all the way through d1 and need to be policy lynched, that shows there's a big problem with the entire site, why do such players get a free pass everytime ?" Do they get PLed or do they get a free pass?

    Good players won't be willing to sign in games where some players won't contribute at all, when you potentially have 3+ pages of only shitposting in a single day, i really don't see how it's fun to read it, or trying to get the shitposter to actually contribute.

    Of course, as long as players also contribute to the game, there's nothing wrong with some shitposting, some times however, some slots only shitpost and don't contribute at all.

    I meant a free pass to sign in any game they want.

    Re: The problem with shitposting

    Hey-I posted a post under Empathy so mods if you see it-that's me.

    I'll try to repost.

    When ika and I left this site, it was due to the toxicity that was so bad at the time, we found it impossible to enjoy ourselves here. I hate when people sign up for a game and don't play. Some joking around is fine and makes the game fun but it's when people do nothing but troll/shitpost or do nothing but lurk or make comments that do nothing for the game where it's a problem. I'm not saying I'm a great player but I do put effort into games and I feel like it's a waste if the game is dead due to lurkers/trolls/toxicity.

    So my solution is to PL them. Do it every time they act that way in the game and say they are scum or anti-town and need to die.

    I agree with the logic behind the PL, but to me, if there is a PL, that just means the host (and maybe even the staff) failed their duty towards their players, which is to provide the best playing environment possible.

    Lol, you're just proving my point with this post.

    You know the fun thing i noticed ? You actually play the game when you're on an anon account, so why don't you do it every time ?

    You're also expected to contribute to the chat, regardless of your role, scumhunting isn't that hard.

    Re: The problem with shitposting

    Clean up on aisle 12. Sino's tears have caused a flood.

    In all seriousness -- fm is a game and a game should be fun. The problem is you youngin's only care about winning. Life isn't about winning it's about having fun and doing good!

    Nu and calix left for more than just shit posting I assume -- considering nu basically said shit posting is fine. If you want to solve a game by page 5 to you are delusional or no fun. I was glad I was mislynched in MM Bc it actually gave sk a shot -- who knows if I actually pulled posts and stuff game would have been over and it would have been disappointing imo.

    And look number 1 "shit poster" that game easily figured out the scum d1. I think if You punish people for treating the game like a game...then it won't matter who you have left bc everything will be so cutthroat and toxic you'll lose players that way too.

    You could save the "Sino's Tears" part. He's just sharing his worries about the site dissapearing. I am quite worried as well and I don't think any other mafia site would be the same as this one.
