  POTD Comments Locked for the Next Week - Site News
  Posted by: Danny on 02-23-2007 @ 09:04
This News Item has been viewed 6,533 times
Due to the nature of recent comments in the POTD i have decided to lock the comments for the next week for two reasons. First of all, the flaming and abuse between members has to stop. Over the past few weeks I have seen several members flame or attack other members over one simple picture. If this continues I will disable POTD comments permanently.

Secondly, when making a comment in the POTD please at least try to make come constructive comments rather than saying that the POTD is bad (or in this case "Crappy POTD 1/10"). If you don't like the picture say why you don't like it without the use of profanity or insults. It's not that hard, people!

If you have any complaints about this decision please feel free to send an email to network[at]filefront.com (replace the [at] with @). (also please mention GTA and this news post)

I'd like to say a few things. Firstly, its just a picture, just a bloody picture. If it sucks, then it sucks. People have a right to speak thier minds. If someone doesn't like the picture then they have a right to do so. I will probably get banned or something for writing this but it needs to be said. I mean, so I submit a picture, and someone says they hate it and give it 1 the well thats his opinion, I'm not going to cry about it. So why don't you guys get out and stop worrying about a stupid picture. In the real world, you cant stop someone from speaking thier minds as it is in the constitution. C'mon, you think just cause you run a site, that gives you the right to take way some else's rights. Well I think this whole thing is a big waste of time.
My final word is that I have submitted a picture and one guy said it sucked, well I dont care, maybe you guys should just get over all this, and get a life.

#2 - Noone ever said you hadn't the right to say u don't like a potd or rate it as badly as u want. The problem has to do with the flaming and the insults between members, and in the gta potds this problem has been a bit over the edge. Someone don't like a potd? Fine, but he has no right to insult the poster, his mother, his whole family or anything else... As u said, it's just a bloody picture smile

#2 - I'm not going to ban you for that comment. The reason why i closed the comments was not because people were saying it was a bad potd it was how they were saying it. If you read what i said above i put use "Constructive Criticism".

For the record i didn't say that people aren't allowed their opinions, where did i say that. I just said if you want to say its bad thats fine but at least say why its bad, not just

"Its Crap 1/10"


"This is F****** s**** the author is gay"

For the record i know that most of the POTDs are rubbish, but there is a difference between the above and giving a good reason, instead of flaming other members. (I refering to several members not about you in this case)

The comments that i edited out were far worse than "it sucked" there were several comments where members were actually had abusive comments.
