Anon Posting is No More

A Blog Post for GameBanana

For a long time we supported the ability to post anonymously. From memory I think we did this because we wanted to let users give constructive negative feedback without fear of retribution, mostly via our old rating system. Well, times have changed a bit - unfortunately, anonymity on the internet is a recipe for problems - and our implementation always tended to have bugs. So we decided to kill two birds with one stone and eliminate the feature. Existing anon posts are still anonymous, however. The mods and admins will discuss whether to keep all existing anon posts as is, or revert them to public, so we can further simplify the codebase.

    Never experienced any asshole anons but I guess it's a fair enough feature to remove if people are having issues with it.

    If you decide to say something to somebody, you must prepared to taking responsibility for your words.
    Using Anonymity to posting is a sign that they are not brave enough to face the guy.

    Never understood that anonymity. If you are afraid to say something in here, what a poor and shy man you're in real life? I guess they are among those people who always promise themselves to go to boss and ask for promotion, but always postpone it for tomorrow and work all life at low-income job.

    Those that say tom is just taking the easy way out, imagine first being a coder and if you've already delved yourself into programming, then imagine coding a site like this with tons of features.

    Guys, a little consideration. We coders are not gods who have all the solutions. Sometimes we take shortcuts and compromises on smaller things for the sake of the bigger picture. We forget we're not required to pay anything to use the sites features and it's being maintained regularly...

    anonymity is both good and bad, not just bad.

    to me it just seems like you cant fix the many bugs with it so you just outright remove it entirely

    I'm a big fan of this change. There were too many ways to see right through anonymity on this platform anyway.
