    Angry All Wii Members & Users

    Some of this applies to everyone, but at the moment it's mainly Wii users and it's becoming a big problem. And sorry to some of you who are reading this as it isn't everyone.

    The Wii section should be like all other sections, so you should understand normal rules should apply. For example, posting in the correct sections.
    Also the Wii section is, you guessed it, a Wii section - a section dedicated to Wii. Don't post everywhere but, and don't just post anything in there. Many people have been using it for spam and just general chat - there is a forum beyond the Wii section.
    If you want to treat it like a spam section I suppose it could be treated like one, no increases post count or points for posting. Or maybe it should be completely moderated, all posts have to be approved.

    Come on guys, a lot of you (sorry, not all of you) are intelligent. There are many who look down at the Wii section and members - don't give yourselves a bad name, help yourselves.

    There should be a thread that newbs have to read before activating their account with this message or something similar. *sigh*

    Well, I think unless you're a member or a wii member and up, your posts should be approved by a section moderator and up. I mean, it will eliminate a lot of the spam and crap.

    CodeLeakers is about freedom, hence why only abusers are lowered to requiring moderation before their posts are displayed/published.

    This would also make our moderators pissed off, having to approve a shit load of posts per day, or even, per minute.

    People like instant gratification. The admin know this is an important part of business.

    Upon new registration, there is a little description about posting in the correct sections, etc.

    Extreme is just saying that MOST people just post in the Wii section just to get their thread read by others, when a lot of threads should be in GENERAL CHAT or SPAM. Right?

    What about an option for when you want to post a thread, like "Where will you like to post this thread?" and then options (Wii,Computers,smartphones)?

    In my eyes it is obvious that you should post your thread in the most appropriate section. I'm talking about the real obvious, lazy examples. Posting in General Chat instead of Help for instance is not that bad, those sort of mistakes are one reason why we have moderators and moderation. As long as it isn't repetitive then it can be dealt with quickly and easily.
