I respect everyone's opinions regarding Minecraft, even when I do not agree. One problem that I keep having in this forum, which is evident amongst other people in the community, is that it is hard to sift through information amongst the threads complaining about Minecraft/Mojang. Again, I believe everyone has the right to complain, but seriously, we need a legit complaints forum for this stuff, because it isn't present in just one place. The complaint threads are running rampant throughout the entire community in most sections.. I do not know if the mods will take notice, but I certainly hope they do.
If you are interested in seeing a complaints section opened for those who have issues with Mojang, please sign in this thread. If supporters see anyone trying to derail this thread from within this thread, please report them. This petition is meant to be taken seriously, and is not for those looking to start a flame war. To reiterate, this thread is about a petition to get a complaints section opened up for those who are displeased with Minecraft/Mojang.
This would be a win for all sides. The other sections wouldn't be littered with "FUUUU MOJANG" threads, making it possible to have good constructive discussions with others. This would also give those who are upset with Minecraft/Mojang, a place to vent in a more focused manner.
Agree. Probably wont work or happen but its worth trying. There can be a big sticky in the 1.9 telling people to go to complaints if they have a complaint. And mods can eventually move the worst offenders over if they are posted in the wrong area.
This is a very good idea. We will still get the occasional complaint in the other sections, but hopefully the mods will make quick work of it. If they want to whine, they can whine somewhere else. It's great that you put this to people's attention.
There are a number of reasons why this idea would never work:
There is no way to force anyone to post a dissenting opinion in a specific area of the forum
Even if there were, it's fundamentally wrong to say "Oh, this is your opinion? Then you aren't welcome here, go post over there."
Purposefully creating a divide in the community with secular posting habits is not a trend we want encouraged.
I don't necessarily agree with everything I see posted, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. However, one thing we can all agree on is, if we start segregating and censoring people for having an opinion, it starts a very slippery slope. At what point would we start segregating (or deleting) posts that are negative at all? What about complaint threads like this one?
I certainly understand why you're putting this idea forward, but I'm afraid I cannot see anyone on staff supporting the means you're suggesting.
