I'm honestly wondering what happened. I stopped posting 2 years ago and well, the reputation system was abused then but holy god if I see this thread I'm wondering why it hasn't been removed yet.
Most threads by me have been hard hit as well as some others who are disliked by whoever is doing it, no matter the content....probably by bots and such.
Also as to why it's still in use(r*p system)....they are too busy or cheap to remove or remake it, most likely.
But the weirdest part is seeing no mods replying to threads anymore.
Where did they all go?
They are too busy I guess, seeing as gog laid off some staff due to budget cuts awhile back, and also due to the pc crowd's complaints for various things(such as "bad" tweets).
Now they only police the forums a bit and reply a bit to some news posts.
2 years ago mods actively participated in discussions and there was hardly any moderation whatsoever on these forums, judging by what I read here it's become a lot more moderated all the while moderators have distanced themselves from the community.
As said above: They are too busy due to staff cuts and other concerns, and likely a bit of laziness.
Has this been happening for a long time now?
For at least the past year or so that i've been back here, it has.
P.S. I have looked at other threads to see if they are as bad as this one, and at a quick glance they don't seem to be as low rated as here. I wonder why this one is getting targeted in particular.
I am guessing because the OP asked about me being downrated for a giveaway on the forums(multiple posts in that have been low rated when i;m just thanking people and giving out games, and others have been low rated as well to normal rated), and some here dislike me or those who even sort of defend me or my posts....as well as other people they dislike.
Also while I'm at it, what happened to GOG all of the sudden pushing Galaxy?
I'm glad we still get the option for an offline copy but it's been renamed into obscurity. Offline downloads is what made GOG stand out, no launcher for every damn game and a supportive community with mods that care about the community.
They are trying to be the new steam while at the same time trying to be unique.....and failing at both to some degree.
