Recently, I found many threads where about two groups argues about their policies respectively.
One side think that discussions should be democratized. Even when some persons utter their complaint experience which sometimes not based on the lack of the game system but just an unfamiliarity with the common sense of this game, they should be allowed to involve in some discussions, the people in the side think so.
On the other, opposite side people expect the people here providing meaningful information on any new post of any topics. They are irritated by those who are not providing any “new” information and saying something easily noticed from the information sources provided somewhere of this game.
I personally think, “ideally” any communities on the Internet should be latter. But “actually” people can only work with the former kind of community.
Although I read the guidelines of this community, before I was going to throw some ideas on the forum, it was hard (that is almost impossible) for me finding the past information related.
Due to the noisy taste existing in this forum which corresponds to the former “democratized” side, too less searchability. In that point, the latter is sophisticated.
Which is a better world? Indeed, either side has successful case.
For about former, Google are world wide winner in business and techs, who have been utilized the information shared among the former “democratized” communities above. disposing trash information by the “technologies” enables them to make them that of high quality.
And for about latter, I now one service in Japan (I’m Japanese). There is(was) a famous service “2 channel” among Japanese we can find a lot of useful information immediately found even by a simple “words based” text search. Indeed, The site is full of insult,abbreviations,ignorance. We can find some posts by newbies but is just ignored by veteran.
The difference of the site from this forum is the users are all anonymous. and there is not any features helping references or quotes, and not provided any user guidelines. Just a gray tone of board, hence good response despite relatively cheap server infrastructures.
This forum is designed to be a half anonymity like most of services in the Internet are.
I don’t know any other game belonging to the combination of 4x and MMO and that’s why so many people can have their respective opinions about this game. That is precious and I really love reading the topics here.
Which is a better world?
All I have to do is giving more effort just focusing on the contents of the discussions and being more careful keeping the qualities and searchability.
