Ads keep us online. Without them, we wouldn't exist. We don't have
paywalls or sell mods - we never will. But every month we have large bills
and running ads is our only way to cover them. Please consider unblocking us. Thank you from GameBanana <3
Humans never really changed. Only thing that changed is technology. Besides, if one terrorist's action represents a religion, that would be the exact same thing as saying one criminal american represents the entirety of the USA. We simply let ignorance take over our minds. And on top of that, the politics played a very big role into brainwashing humans, which is what is happening nowadays ( played a bigger impact after 9/11 specifically )
It sure is, I hope things will settle up down there in that section because it definitely is not in a good status right now.
Not so terrible lately besides being called a terrorist from time to time because of what I believe in. Racism simply wouldn't stop, people could find all forms of excuses to go away with anything.
For this community itsself, a game recently added named FNF has exploded with activity and basically destrabilizes the servers and corrups loading things like uberstyle, image uploading and so on. The amount of games added to the section compared to the other sections is ridiculously insane, we haven't been ready for this type of activity. Even the majority of the new members have increased highly since then, and most of them are here for FNF. Anyway, I'm glad you're doing fine out there.
That's already in place. The mods are placed in Quarantine until a mod accepts it. The problem is, please check the section for yourself. Over 3000 submissions pending. It isn't easy for someone to scour through all of them. To top it all off, the site has server outages regularly due to this, and most of the users end up with a 501 to 4 errors.
I already had proposed the idea of introducing a "limit" system, in which a game is only allowed to have a certain amount of submissions. If not that, a limit on how many submissions can a user upload in a month. That might make the situation a lot easier to handle, and by far 50% of the community has agreed. We're just waiting for Tom's approval.
Recently, there's been this addition of a new game called Friday Night Funkin'. Well while it isn't a bad game, just a mediocre version of Guitar Hero, the community consists of 8 year olds and probably a year or two older than that, which is against the rules after all, but this community literally spams the whole site with low-grade, Tier Z mods that has previously crashed the original domain servers of Gamebanana, and right now, Tom is actually renting 10 servers dedicated just for the game. 15 Game managers assigned to that one game, additional help of flagging and trashing by the other moderators and the community, and still we couldn't keep up with the mess at all. Occasionally at certain times, these users spam so much content to the point that downloads give out 503 errors, images break down, uberstyles fail to work, and profiles spammed by angry ten year olds about their submissions being trashed.
The community is extremely toxic, and in spite of introducing thousands of rules or bans, it doesn't seems to die down. I'm tired of the other moderators being nice guys enforcing them to follow the rules; I want you to be around. The person who takes shit from nobody, absolutely nobody. The person who wouldn't hesitate to permanently ban users if they aren't following the rules.
You might've been a hated admin back then but I don't give a damn about that. In my opinion, you were one of the best. And in these situations, we do need that kind of muscle.
