TL;DRThe "welcome" post promotes toxicity and should be moderated.
What ?The post Read this OR be ignored! is, in many cases, the first contact of a player who wants to engage with the community and feel like they can collaborate to improve the game, but the post is quite discouraging. The post has several patronizing and rude statements and should be tuned down a bit to encourage collaboration in a more constructive way.
Why ?There are a few passive aggressive, some straight out aggressive expressions on the post, such as:
- Don't like mods, your problem
Don't ever ask "I can also provide a picture/screenshot of what I mean. Should I?".
You like colors? We like content! Don't use colors in text if there is no good reason.
I understand the moderation team must be tired of bad posts, but I don't believe that the answer is to take out on the community.
