The forum is far from perfect and we can all add a little to make it better. I read a dozen posts on separate categories about the RELENTLESS FOOD STORE. The moderators locked all topics and in my case specifically warned that bans will follow if you double down a topic. How about you delete the topics that have been ignored for 6 months so everyone can find info they are searching for. This came just a couple days after many topics were moved to a new category to help sort thru all the nonsense. I wasn’t the only person who had trouble finding the answer. There is no search engine. No question is a dumb question. Maybe don’t volunteer to help us gamers if you are gonna be snooty every time we have what you might consider a stupid question. And for your information I have no trouble reading. And I have no trouble sensing sarcasm and or rude behavior. I come on here to help others play the game and pass on knowledge to the community. If the moderators need help organizing the form I will gladly help. But if a dozen people have trouble sorting through the mess don’t threaten them with bans it’s not very good practice. We are all in this together for the love of the game. Some of us have inside information and others don’t. Some people have power and others don’t. Please don’t abuse your power and please recognize that if more than a dozen people are still asking the same question perhaps it wasn’t answered clearly in the first place.

@jimmbo-slice We mods are here to help. Not only with questions players have. Also with organizing the board. Many new topics for the same question will cause confusion. So we try to lead people to the correct topic to avoid confusion.
It is not our intention to exploit our power to harass players. But sometimes we have to use clear words to make people understand.
I'm sorry you think we'll delete questions without reading or helping, but there are answers and sometimes you just have to read a bit to find them. And there is a search engine. Just click at the magnifying glass at the top right corner and put what you are searching for.

In part I agree with some of what you are saying. However in many instances users post the same question over and over and over WITHOUT using the search feature, which is one of the main things the forum rules state. A perfect example is you as a "veteran" forum member and yet you were unaware of the search feature nor the pinned instructions showing the location of the different features of the forum. It is not a question of being snooty or abusing power, it is a question of trying to help while at the same time following the rules and dictates of SP, which we agreed to when agreeing to help moderate the forum. Sorry but 75% of the forum posts are repeats and information which is already available if one uses the tools available. My personal signature specifically mentions searching first and yet most people do not. Even if one does not search, just a simple scroll down in the same sub-category will show many the question they are looking to answer.....yours included. Yes we are here to help, but one must also help themselves.

Please SEARCH before posting.

Yeah I pretty much can find an answer when I am looking for it and I admit to skipping right past the answer in question. And I get it, answering the same question many times probably gets old. In our defense, it’s not exactly clear the 75000 food was related to the Lap 2 Relentless food reward and maybe that’s why it wasn’t popping right out at me. Just someone like me who often times is trying to help others, I thought it was silly that I would get banned for being a man of the people. I didn’t think I would get banned in all honesty but it was like really I am just trying to sort this out for everyone. And the page you are sending everyone too is about the HEROIC RACE. I didn’t really see anything wrong with having a Relentless Food Topic that had a quick answer that could be deleted once the race was over. To me I thought it was easier to look at a relentless food topic for the answer and be done then to scroll thru the heroic race thread which sometimes has many topics within the same thread. Anyways I’d like to help if you guys need help organizing the forum I have many ideas. But you guys are the best there is at helping the community and I’m not trying to insult anyone, I just wanna help everyone who needs help and sometimes when you are in the know it seems obvious. Especially for those who have read every single post in the forum. But for those searching it’s not always that easy. Similar to the Green Keys questions during the dragon rescue. Yeah it was part of the rescue. But it kind of became bigger than the rescue itself because of how DC handled it.
