Battlefield 2142, Battlefield 2142 Downloads - BF2Files.com is having another POTD Crapfest!

Battlefield Files - Picture of The Day

Upon others, Disabling comments consistantly for no real reason.

People complain because there is no rule against doing so. We do not insult, tease, or put any sexual conduct up, so why do you keep disabling comments?

From what I've seen with the bad PotD's, the disabling, and the insulting (my name is mcfire im a know it all) You're just a terrible staff member.

I understand you're not paid for this, but you should still do your job with a sense of maturity. Honestly, from all the crap i've seen from you, i would have attempted for a replacement asap. The site is there to enjoy, to post your opinion on subjects. When following the rules, only to be silenced, or disabled, is just stupid.

Like Micfire999 stated, learn to let things go. IF you see a comment that bothers you because it simply says "this potd sucks" you let it go. There is no reason to bite back, to silence, or to even disable comments.

I have let things go for way to long and i decided it was time to put a stop to it. As of yesterday i decided to re enable comments for POTD's Hopefully you guys don't Ruin it. It really makes the site look gross and cluttered when all i see is "OMFG THIS POTD IS TEH SUCK 0-10" or "UGSAce WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU"

what about this one?

"hmm the title sucks. pic sucks....everything about it sucks"

Now if only Mcfire could talk like this a little more.

After picking PotD's for nearly a year, or more, I'm unaware of the length of his duty as a PotD selector, but after that long I too would slowly stop looking for good ones because (i would assume) a huge portion are bad PotD's.

The simple fact that a large majority of the community here are young kids, preteens, etc. The humour/humor would be quite.. Childish at times.

I don't really blame anyone, its just a Picture of the Day is all. No where do I see "Has to be a good picture" or "has to be a good caption".

I may have been harsh previous to these comments about the selected picture, but I now realise that it isn't really the staffs fault.

Anyways, 4/10 because yes this is pretty unsatisfying

That i like.

THIS PIC SUCKS!!! N00B!!!!" Yes, its not against the rules to do that but it makes a site look bad as it shows the immaturity, of the members of the site/network. Complaining, whining, and crying about the bad quality of POTD's gets annoying after awhile so I agree with Ace's decision. Yes, it was a bit steep, but it was his choice as he probably thought it might help the situation.

No matter what you or anyone else may think, it is up to the staff to dertermine what is acceptable and what is not. You ARE intitled to your opinion, but I think that your comment in the quote above was unnecessary, and uncalled for. UGSAce is doing his job. He has the full right to do what he thinks is necessary. He doesn't need to listen to people complain about, "Dude, you suck as a staff member, get a real job! These POTD's are shit!"

I do agree that what UGSAce did was a bit much but you must understand (I know I'm repeating myself, but I'm trying to get a point across) that the its up to the staff to do what they think is necessary 1) to fix a situation that they think is getting out of hand, 2) to cool down a situation, 3) to stop spam. There are many other things but I don't feel like getting into them. Now, even though I'm not a forum staff member, I'm warning you that you need to stop insulting UGSAce. He's just doing his job. I'm not being a smart ass, I'm just trying to sort out a situation and support a fellow staff member.
