EverQuest II players concerned about alleged excessive forum moderation after a suspension of one of the community’s more prominent supporters and the studio focus on using Reddit as a communications platform were treated to an “open dialogue” yesterday by CM Radar X.
“Forum suspensions are never done on a whim and usually come with a fair bit of warning,” Radar X explained. “Any time one is issued, it is after a string of communication and in hopes that we open up a dialogue with the individual and reach an understanding of what our guidelines will allow.”
As for Reddit, Radar X said that the dev and CM team agreed to throw their support behind using it to talk with players: “We look to sites like Reddit as a middle ground for constructive, unbiased conversations about our games. We do understand that Reddit may be a significant change and we’re hopeful that you’ll at least stop by and take a look at it, if you haven’t already.”[Source: Official forums, Reddit]
