"Ask CE" topic series.

#1FriendSystemPosted 6/19/2014 7:33:00 PM
CE has a considerable amount of trolls, we all know that, but it's too hasty to claim that all of CE shares the same views as some of these individuals, who are very vocal, tend to post. It's gotten to the point that ousiders often say things like: "CE hates tipping"; "CE blames victims"; or "CE thinks it's impossible to be racist against whites". Maybe some lesser stuff like hating certain games or hobbies as well too.

This is why I wanna create a series of topics asking the general CE population about what they think about sensitive issues like race, lbgt rights, religion, tipping, virginity and the like in an attempt to disprove that the whole board doesn't actually think like a few trolls. Most regulars are reasonable people and I'm predicting the results will be fair minded, but even if they're not, we'll get conclusive proof anyways.

So, I would create regular topics asking about different issues like the examples listed, and then post/archive what the majority really thinks in an effort to disprove some claims floating around.

Do I have an ok for that?

This is where you're most likely going to run into problems. Although making topics asking CE users what they think about certain issues will almost certainly be alright (well, at least for you :P), archiving everything that they say and trying to spread it around on GameFAQs would be inappropriate in the case of the former and spamming in the case of the latter. I would make it perfectly clear that you're planning to use the responses and you're using them for, and I would certainly not include any content that would be considered offensive or break any other TOU/Etiquette rules (in order to make the link GameFAQs-friendly).

That said, I'm not the best authority on this subject, so I would wait until another moderator responds :P

Maybe I worded it wrong. Have you seen these topic series like "name a flaw", "rate this episode", or "say a good thing about this user: day x" where they post previous results? It would be the same thing here.

In that case, I don't see anything inherently wrong with the idea. Granted, if the topics get out of hand (you are asking sensitive questions about people's beliefs), we might close the topic. Also, I don't know how seriously other users will take the topic considering it's, well, CE :P

That's great. Thank you.

BTW Luigi IS better than Mario.
