Supposing if there is no relation between sales and user reviewswhat’s the real problem here someone got upset are some people are being mean other people get their feelings hurt. Fahey asserts that Valve shouldn’t need a commercial incentive to fix this problem they should fix it because it’s the right thing to do. He also speculates that a future generation customers won’t use the service when they find that games and creators they
like are treated abysmally by the service.
Sure this discussion seems active larger philosophical debates across the internet ranging from the policing of social media and write it to localization changes that are described as outright censorship. Basically put do those that have the ability to moderate a community also have the responsibility to moderate that community.
I think he says yes because passionately enabling and permitting abuse is really little better than engaging in harassment yourself. Wow we feel that we can speak to this because we have a community to sure do have had to maintain them for three years or so about right now for you even longer.
In my opinion I think you made a service that requires a community you gotta accept ownership of that and as you get larger your community getslarger and therefore you get a lot more shit hits so I think that it is Valve
responsibility much like riot to start not policing them but I think you said it best which is give them the tools right to moderate and then Valve kindalike you just let it be let go a little bit but given the right tools to do.
Something that they always talks about with the gauges success on something like YouTube when you’re getting all positive comments you’re probably not doing that well once the negativity starts coming in that means you’rereaching a broader audience because guess what further you go out more shitheads you can find so you’re really not responsible for your community at least we’re doing around you what you like you said your best thing to do isjust provide the tools and hope that they do the best with what they have because once you as the head or the figurehead try to step in you will only have an ass right on your hands. You never want to tell people whatto do let them decide and just make sure they are well equipped to do so.
I think you were head hitting a point really big which is once you hit a certain cutoff of size a certain amount of shithead this is just gonna happen because that’s just how humans Call of Duty is a good example of that the fucking Infinite Warfare trailers getting blown up because Call of Duty kind of hit that tipping point but if we keep hitting negative vote that goes away. I still don’t understand the mindset that dogpile man everybody want to be on the winning side and when things tip like that that’s just human nature so sure you can employ a whole staff of people to step in and stop it but then that kind of in a way gives you a very kind of plastic fake community doesn’t seem real anymore because there’s always a nanny they’re ready to slap somebody in the back of the head for doing something wrong.
Ideally you give them the tools to police themselves we’ve had a lot of success with that because we pick good moderators for our community but you know they’re gonna be dickwads what and also what’s the endgame you push them out of your community go to another one they go to another one to go to another one and they’re just clustering on the Deep Web trading child porn I mean it’s not about rehabilitating part of the human race but it’s just about I think understanding that there is no ideal solution here and there is no green pasture once you have enough people in a room together. So we’re going to fight, in this script he said you lead by example and I think that’s kind of what we’ve been trying to do with fun now since I getting it all those all those communities.
