I'm not sure if this was actually true or not as I haven't been involved in console for a fair amount of time but I thought that the PS forum's disabled post count in the recruitment section.
Not sure how effective it would be in preventing people typing "mid CGa BoL" but I definitely get the feeling people do post minimalist shit do get their post count up so perhaps you could try doing that as well?

I don't entirely agree. Yes it isn't negative or a totally useless statement but it doesn't really hold much credit to anyone looking at a potential recruit nor does it really hold much substance. Not really going to argue over that my point was more that removing post count just means people posting there aren't just saying three words to boost post count. They most likely actually have an opinion on the person or Org that's recruiting.

Clarification though Asterix; if someone does just post mid cga/m etc what happens?

I think sometimes brutal honesty in a truth of a players skill is needed, but too many people put it out in a "toxic" way that lead to this. but this is more progress from CG and think its a useful step in the right direction.

I just hope the difference between a toxic comment and a 'brutal truth' can be established

@lukee. you're actually delusional dude. Not once did I say I can play main. Not once did I say anything you are spouting. You called me Low CGa and I said you were 5-8th with 2 years of CG teams. How about you stop harassing me on every platform

Well it's a statement of how good some rand thinks some other rand is, which a potential recruiter may think holds some weight and thus hit that person up (or avoid them) as a result of that comment.

I'd like to know this too, though i suspect nothing's going to happen.

EDIT this is a good change

should have a karma type of thing, if someone posts something inappropriate or abusive, they should get minus karma and people would know they are a troll.

I think a good line to draw between "toxicity" and "criticism" is to evaluate what the comment is attacking.

ie: telling someone that their aim isn't as good as they think it is, their game sense is shite and their attitude is not conducive to a team environment for xyz reasons, whilst negative, is not an explicit attack on character.

Whereas: calling someone an autist who bashes their family (It's happened lmao) is a pure ad hominem attack which serves no purpose.

As a side note, in this set of standards I wouldn't consider calling someone an asshole or saying they have a big ego to be an attack on character because these are qualities which are relevant to the recruiting process.
