Since this continues to be a problem I think I'm going to have to take a more strict line on the general tone posts and how they relate to the thread they are in.

So going forward I want this to be fair warning that offtopic, bickering, and spam posts will be deleted or edited when I see them. I don't like doing this because I hate for people to feel like everything they are saying is being policed (and it is more work for me) but I'm at a loss as to what I can do to keep every other thread from derailing into off topic bickering.

If this doesn't work to curb the tone of posts or if it ends up taking up too much of my valuable time the next step I'll be going to is handing out warnings, 3 day posting bans, followed by 7 day posting bans, and finally complete banning from the site.

So please everyone help me out by stopping the flaming, the derailing and just in general try to make your posts constructive and polite so this can be a pleasant and fun place for people to visit.

I wish you would just edit posts that violated the rules and replace the post with this:

Thanks for laying down the law. I don't post around here for those reasons; mostly lurking.

Post away, new voices and ideas and evaluations are always a good thing.

Darksbane, how do we report a post ? Is there a quick link anywhere or is it just via PM to yourself ?

Bottom left corner of every post is the report button.

But if there is no bickering how will I garner people to the "dark side"? :)

I don't see that. It could be because my profile is contributor so it doesn't show up for that profile type.

I will only accept free candy from people in white vans with no windows.

I feel it sad that this is necessary.

Thank you again Darksbane for the very hard volunteer work you put into this excellent site / community.

That's funny that an "enhanced" user loses capability. It's there for the rest of us peons. :)

I would like to one day be able to stop considering this the worst forum on the site. I hope this helps.

Making negative comments doesn't help things. Let's turn things around and make it the best part of the site. All of us have to work together to make the negative, bitter, angry, bored, troll people know their behaviour is unacceptable and unwanted here.

Go bother the FFG boards instead! (assuming you can ever get them to load) :P

Might start spending time on the forums again if this cleans them up.

I know this is a late reply, but I think this is more than fair. There is a big difference between having a good respectful argument about a game you feel strongly about and just being a jerky jerk face. :)
