Here is the Problem

https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/forums/e0d9938206f04a598ce84f2c8cadce02/topics/forum-monitors-343-and-gamers/55880cd8-6e7c-4c1d-91d1-7fb0f498d6f8/posts?page=1

The URL above was to a poll that started to show what the community sees from the forum monitors… until the monitor stckrboy used the poll to select the opposite of the community, and then shut down the thread.

If the monitors can’t or won’t assist the gamers by passing major issues to 343, can’t or won’t pass information back to the gamers from 343, and obviously won’t let the gamers express their experiences of the monitors ‘and’ 343 politely… stckrboy and all the others are no more useful than Tom Smykowski from ‘Office Space’. What exactly do you do here…?

If you have an issue with a moderator you should message them directly. Posting about moderator decisions is against forum rules.

Do the monitors on this forum have the capabilities to relay info like what your saying to 343? Like major issues… I just thought they were only here to monitor this forum… Or am I missing something…?

It’s not like the monitors can do much. They’re volunteers on this site, not direct employees of 343. They are here to monitor the forums, not the game.

They just monitor the forums for the most part;however, 343i does look at the forums(occasionally and only in specific areas), and I don’t know how you get the position so that also might be a factor.

343 is here more then you think, they just don’t always post. but they’re there… lurking

Monitors don’t work for 343I and it’s actually possible for random forum users to become moderators.

I’m guessing from your poll you don’t understand the mods job. They are here to keep order in the forums. You should also listen to Matador as posting about mod decisions is against forum rules for obvious reasons.

How? Sheer luck, or the monitors like them enough?

My understanding is they are appointed.

Well Thanks… You all pretty much answered my questions. :slight_smile: Im still fairly new here. But ive noticed they seem to steer clear of really hot topic type deals and always wondered why? But anyways thanks again!

As others have said, we aren’t here to act as a link between the community and 343. We are community volunteers. 343 approaches us, they ask, and we either accept or decline their offer. We are here strictly to keep the forums clean. Trust me, if I could act in a larger capacity I would.

If you have any questions about Waypoint, moderators, or anything like that, feel free to PM me (anyone) and I’ll do my best to reply as soon as I can. I can be quite busy with work, but I certainly do try lol.

Anyways, I’m going to have to lock this thread down, as It doesn’t really pertain to Halo 5.
