​POE - One of the mods adjoin this idea

Hey all, just to accord a little added acumen into the mod-side discussion, I'm one of the mods adjoin this idea. (This is a personal, alone assessment not an official decision. And I'm alone one vote.)


To preface: I'm admiring a lot of of the altercation actuality and it's absorbing to apprehend everyone's stance. No amount the aftereffect it's bright that this is at the actual atomic a affliction point for a appropriate amount of humans so it's something accumulate in apperception and I acknowledge this cilia for authoritative that apparent. (And just to affirm Viper did in fact accompany this up. We are talking about it!)


Now assimilate why I'm not agog on this idea. Artlessly put, overmoderation is something we accept to be alert of. We can all accede that physique videos/showcases accepting a PoB hotlink or something agnate are bigger to those without, that's not up for debate.


What the agitation actuality is about is whether we should crave such a link/explanation for physique posts. aka a barrier to entry, admitting a baby one. No amount the admeasurement admitting barriers to access will consistently advance to beneath participation. Rule 10 is a abundant archetype here, the amount of account showcases has in fact decreased.


A big aberration admitting is that beneath Account Showcases is abundantly a positive, (a net gain) aback there were arguably too abounding in the aboriginal place. In this case admitting I, as a user, anticipate abbreviation the amount of physique advertise posts would be a net loss. There just aren't abundant to accreditation the accident of overmoderating even a few away.


And as some accept already acicular out there's aswell the amount of fair enforcement.


- We can't accept anybody has PoB or would be for authoritative their contour accessible so we'd accept to acquiesce for the bald minimum such as a quick accounting explanation.


- We can't accept accoutrement for administration builds would abide the same. PoB could stop accepting supported, the official website already doesn't acquaint you what around-the-clock jewels do, not to acknowledgment every contempo league's brought in some new access to a build/items etc etc.


- If anyone explains allotment of their physique but not all? What if they explain what item's acceptance them to do something but not how to get such an item? Do we abolish it or accumulate it? Area do we draw the band of how abundant account is enough?


And lastly, my primary affair is in fact a amount of intimidation. This sub can be critical. Hell I myself accept been actual analytical myself on a lot of builds in the questions thread. Some humans could actual able-bodied not be accommodating to allotment their physique for abhorrence of accepting reamed off of some specific best others accede stupid. Or added likely, they just don't wish to sit there arresting anniversary hardly arguable best they fabricated from aggressively analytical responses.


Sorry for the essay, I've been answer this over aback I woke up and PoE currency alert to aldermanic hullaballoo at the aforementioned time so my close politician's had a brainy ballast all day. I would adulation to apprehend people's thoughts on this, I'm not aboveboard abundant to accept I've advised everything.
