Is there anyway that these false threads be avoided from posting on here

Unfortunately, you can't ban the idiots before they've proven themselves to be just that...

    Sadly, the only way to avoid people acting like goofy children would be to make all posts be approved by a moderator before it displays publicly. That's a little extreme for two (one?) goofballs acting out. That's a bit excessive. Just sit back and have fun calling the people out with the rest of us!

    There is no way to stop it. You can't even do what was suggested by getting the mods to approve the posts cos that would take too much time. These only a hand full of mods and x amount of members will new ones popping up all the time so it's impossible to do plus these mods do have day jobs and lives too.

    just wait for me or spAnser to post the thread then you'll know it's real. also it'll usually be afternoon GMT/BST to get the update ready... there and then evening GMT/BST for the update to be live on appstores

    just remember we know it's coming hours be4 it goes on appstores so if you don't see our post just ignore them

    People who troll usually do it to get a reaction - best way to deal with them is to just ignore them. Also some people are just excited and it may be a genuine mistake - it's important to keep that in mind.

    Could the moderators delete the threads instead of simply locking them? They add no value to the forum.

    Yes we could delete them but we prefer to be more transparent in our actions. And we do delete threads/posts you just don't see them.

    No, I know you guys could delete them.

    What I'm saying is that locking the misleading threads isn't enough. Many forum users like myself do not recognize/notice the padlock symbol and end up clicking on the thread and being annoyed even after its locked.

    My suggestion is to delete the thread completely. The alternative would be to lock the thread and edit the title with [MISLEADING] tags.

    That's a good idea, but without going into, we can't edit titles like we can edit vulgarities in post.

    When I'm visiting the forum, I first look to see who's posted. Then I look at the title. If it's a moderator, or SpAnser, or Nintendo, then I know it will either be important news or genuine fun. And I want to add my voice to the appreciation we have for the above individuals. Thank you guys!

    One of the things I love about this forum is that we are allowed to post without having the comments screened first. I was so excited when I discovered that fact and even a little intimidated because I didn't want to abuse the privilege of speaking my mind directly to the TSTO community. We have a great set of moderators who do a wonderful job; thank you mods! I've learned to ignore misleading threads or use them as a lesson of what not to do. I focus on the names I trust while appreciating the speed with which information can appear when it doesn't have to be preapproved.
