I've been here around a month and I've witnessed at least three insane RE1.5/3.5 threads literally implode on themselves. It usually ends in copious amounts of GIF/Image posting and behavior ill fitting of grown adults (assuming those who participated were, in fact, adults). To quote Mr. Spencer from the latest RE1.5 debacle...
I understand that there are people passionate about this subject, but it's obvious that it cannot be discussed maturely out in the open, I.e. Umbrella Labs. It's my suggestion that a VERY strict board be created specifically for discussing these topics, in which the infraction system is multiplied in severity. I think that, in a very rigid, structured environment discussions such as this can be quite interesting. I also have a few potential rules that could be enforced in such a board...This entire thread is a god damn mess and will be locked.
You people should be ashamed of yourselves.
1: No images allowed unless they are directly related to RE1.5 / RE3.5
2: Absolutely NO off-topic discussion WHATSOEVER or suffer suspension/ban
3: Any users found to be instigating arguments/quarrels without reason shall be suspended/banned
I think that, with such a board in place, the forums will be MUCH more peaceful.
