    I have an idea for how you could prevent useless threads from being made. Basically, it would be something like the mod moderation/reviewing system, but for threads. What do you think of this idea?

    Do you know how much time that would take up to do?

    Maybe have trustable volunteers do it.

    Definately under 50. Even if there are just a few volunteers they will still be enough.

    No, we will deal with it like grown ups. Moderating all content is a very bad idea ...

    Use the report button instead please.

    I'm sure many people have thought of this including the devs maybe, so seen that this tread isn't really useful or needed, wouldn't itself be considered useless?

    Premoderation will be too slow, and global censore is a bad idea imo.

    We get many, many threads and even more posts every day. Passing everything through a moderation queue would be suicide.
    I spend roughly 1-2 hours to check the whole forum (obviously I skip some threads), but if I have to check everything that is being posted here...

    Just help us and use common sense when using the forum, and if something is wrong, use that report button :)

    I try to keep it down, no matter how awesome it sounds. The devs don't like to rush, they want the game to work without problems.
    @SuperNoob05, we can't even use bots because they will make mistakes. And mistakes are bad.
