Step 1: Read the main subforum and use search to see if your point of interest is already being discussed. vNext has this nifty feature that when you start typing a topic title is shows similar posts.
Step 2: Think about what you want to say and ask yourself is it providing a dialog with other users and supporting discussion, sharing of information, etc? If Yes, great then add to that thread or post that topic.
If it’s more along the lines of emotional ranting, spamming already created topics, etc. It’s more so you saying “hey look at me” or throwing a hissy fit in the forum.
Step 3: Proof read. Where you heated or in a sorta flow state when you posted, maybe revisit it and ask yourself. “Man, am I just clogging up the subforum and forcing other people who want to see Halo Infinite become the ideal game like me have to destroy their scroll wheels trying to find interesting topics in a sea of endless spam?”
Step 4: PLAY THE OBJECTIVE! I’d be more tolerant of the immature hissy fits if you guys put that energy into moving the flag and the Space Duracells
As someone who has experience with this type of stuff, there is not enough moderators for 24/7 cleanup and I almost want subcategories so general/misc can just be a cesspool of the same topic being posted 117 times a day
Fun fact: a single thread of topic X with a bunch of discussion is easier to process than 300 threads about topic X. Imagine that!
