Information regarding updates

I think most reasonable and sensible people don't mind genuine gripe posts and threads, but when the boards are constantly spammed by the same pitiful, whining, attention seeking cry-baby threads, that are posted for no other reason than goading replies, both good and bad (even negative attention is still attention), then people soon get sick of it.

This game is about enjoyment and fun. Don't enjoy it or have fun? Then stop playing and stop trying to ram it down everyone's throats that you don't like the game!!

Simples.

    Say we're upset because an update is messed up, a building has a glitch, we think that something else could be added to the game, things are being hacked, etc. Then we make a comment/thread regarding the company or product (Tapped) having issues, is that grounds for being deleted? I mean, if it is, I guess I don't need to post any rants or praises in threads that interest me. I'm not trying to be rude. I love this forum and many people on it. Just want clarity. So please keep any posts civil. :)

    It's perfectly fine so long as your name isn't Josh.

    There are ways to voice your opinion in a constructive and productive manner and there are ways to voice your opinion in a purely argumentative, disruptive, dare I say harassing manner.

    Which do you think is preferred?

    Pretty certain if you stick to the former, you shouldn't have any troubles.

    For one, I love the game. And I didn't name call as that is not allowed.

    Having a critique of the game is natural, but with the critique you can add your own spin on it as to how it can be made better, which alot of people do.
    If its reasonable and not posted to cause negativity in the thread from other users then its fine.
    I hope this helps :)

    Lol apparently negative posts are only allowed if you give EA a solution to their own problems. What a crock. Try finding that one in the terms of service.

    - Use abusive, offensive, or defamatory screen names and/or personas.
    -Engage in disruptive behavior in chat areas, game areas, forums, or any other area or aspect of EA Services. Disruptive behavior includes but is not limited to conduct which interferes with the normal flow of gameplay or dialogue within an EA Service. Disruptive behavior shall also include, but not be limited to, commercial postings, solicitations and advertisements.
    - Disrupt the flow of chat in chat rooms with vulgar language, abusiveness, hitting the return key repeatedly or inputting large images so the screen goes by too fast to read, use of excessive shouting [all caps] in an attempt to disturb other users, "spamming" or flooding [posting repetitive text].

    I completely support everyone's right/need to complain or make suggestions about the game. For me, I can barely make a complaint because this game is sooooo much better than 99% of the cruddy 'app' games out there.

    I fail to see the part that says you have to provide EA with a solution to their problem. Additionally, my topics are not disruptive, interfering with the flow of gameplay, etc. Sorry champ, topics that have content which you dislike are not the topics that fall under "disruptive posting" no matter how much your cute little brain wishes it was. Better luck next time! Now delete this post or lock this thread without a rebuttal if you know I'm right and have nothing to say back to me.

    Mods have constructively banned me by making all of my posts and topics moddable. So I'm not actually back. And my other post was deleted. Guess I was right! Funny how they delete posts that defeat their arguments since they know they have no argument to make. Mods here should become attorneys. Whenever they're about to lose the case they will try and delete the opposing counsel's arguments.

    My other post was deleted in less than 1 second. This other one is still standing. Guess they're discussing my ban now. Oh well, no use being here if I can't post anyway. And besides, I can mask my IPs if I really wanted to come back (which I don't since we aren't allowed to have any real discussion here...just peaceful fluff). Goodbye to all!

    This post is off-topic as it doesn't pertain to anything being discussed. I demand its deletion!
