    I think it must be a shared mod for all the forums. They pop in when inappropriate things get flagged, but not necessarily right away. They don't seem to involve themselves with organization (merging threads, stickying topics, etc).

    The thread was probably flagged by someone. Didn't see the thread myself though.

    What do you mean by do your job properly? It's their forum, they can moderate it however they want. Deleting every repeated thread is like a full time job considering they are never-ending... I think EA has more important things to worry about. It's easy enough (atleast for normal people, not those who are on here 24/7) to ignore the threads.

    I'd much rather them work on issues that actually matter instead of finding a way to keep the 4-5 same people who always complain about the repeated threads happy.

    I was just posting a comment to rs876's thread about there being pages of duplicate topics everywhere when it told me that the thread no longer exists. I checked the front page and lo and behold it's gone. It had the word S.H.I.T in the title just like that but had two pages of comments so it wasn't an automatic thing.

    In other words, someone with the powers of a moderator just came in and deleted it.


    WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE THE SECRETS OF YOUR MYSTERIOUS WAYS?!


    Also: either do your job properly and actually mod this forum or don't bother at all (or get one of us to do it). Deleting one of the endless swathe of duplicate threads = good. Censoring regular users and active posts for swearing = bad. And pin one of the damn add me threads already would you?

    Not me, I just stopped going to it. I hadnt even been there since my last post to see if you made anymore jerky comments.

    If you're saying 1 person flagging it would make them delete it then it should be easy enough for you all to go flag the threads you dont like rather then complain.

    I'm obviously not suggesting that engineers and game developers stop their work on the game to come and mod this forum, that would be silly. I'm suggesting that they devote some of the time of one of their employees to occasionally look after the user forum for one of their most popular games, which shouldn't be too much to ask.

    Whenever anyone has a problem, EA direct them to this forum for help first. There they meet only other users. Those of us who hang around here and like talking about the game end up being tech support for people just looking for answers with problems with the game. What's more, during periods of instability the whole place gets bogged down with bug complaints. There are no sticky threads that would help the place, no official help from the company, just a lot of frustrated users. It's killing a rather nice little community that's naturally built up around the game here and that's a shame.

    I wouldn't be so quick to denigrate the regulars here just because they're irritated by an endless stream of redundant clutter. If EA had a proper mod to look after this place there wouldn't be a problem.

    No worries. I'll just start one. Maybe everyone will use it?

    Honestly, they should let one of us who comes here often be mod. That way we can make threads sticky if situations like today arise.
