Hey guys, riverini here. During the past years we have encouraged a very liberal commenting policy regarding the EN24 articles however recently we have noticed a few recurring trends from several commenters which has required me to take action before things escalate beyond control. The following rules will now be enforced by myself and my team in the comment sections of EN24 and it’s sister sites.
– Eve News24 is a gaming site. As much as I’d love our commenters to come here and exchange their opinions, I will have to ask you to please take political discussions and sensitive real life subjects elsewhere.
– There are countless venues on which you can have both civilized and uncivilized discussions regarding current world events. EN24 is not the place to have these sort of discussions. For this reason, any non-gaming related discussions will be deleted (within reason).
– Tiresome comments or one liners regarding certain writers or topics will be moderated and treated as spam. This is not KUGU!
– If you are to discredit or contest the veracity of a piece, we would like you to please provide evidence supporting your claim. The you got “trolled” comments will be moderated.
– Keep the profanity down, there are more civilized ways for the 21st century forum warrior to make their point, take the higher path. Racism in any shape or form will be dealt with a zero tolerance policy.
– Also, we get it! You don’t like Gevlon’s articles – on the other hand – stats show there are thousands other players who actually take the time to read his pieces. He is a very polarizing writer, but learn to appreciate the discerning point of view he brings to EN24. Constructive and meaningful comments are always welcome, monotonous sperg not so much.
It is against my best interests to BAN EN24 commenters, we take pride in letting everyone express their views on EN24 – and you would be surprise the high amount of opinions I personally don’t agree with, but our commitment to our readers serve a great motivator to allow the most diverse and open EVE Online discussions to keep happening on EN24.
So let’s keep it that way.
