we cant even edit our posts anymore in the megathread

That's gonna be the same for any post. You have like 5 minutes to edit after you post. Otherwise it's stuck there forever.

A forum where clans/communities/guilds can post and recruit people

 imo the megathread just discourages any community and does nothing for a player to find a active clan

maybe a clan forum where active communities can post and keep their threads active would be more beneficial 

this way players easily see what community are actively recruiting and dont have to read through a megathread

 

 

keep in mind that the megathread has no means to find out if the first posted clan is still active

we cant even edit our posts anymore in the megathread

I will forward your suggestion to @PUBG_FWG but for the moment there will be no sub section for clans and they are encouraged to post their clan advertisement once in the mega thread. 

The forum does not allow thread bumping and even IF there was a subsection clans would not be allowed to bump their own threads or rule skip around this by having clan members do it on their behalf. This just turns into "clan wars" with clans constantly bumping their threads to have top visibility. 

Currently we allow clans to respond to those who are LFG but ask them not to spam their clan advertisement as a response. Responses should be humanistic/personal and releveant to the LFG request.

i saw many game forums that have clan sections and they do not feel the problem as you described it

maybe you see the clans as too much of a problem where no problem is

whats wrong with a clan section where people bump threads occasionally?

what do you have to loose?

 

right now it looks to me that you have way more moderation work getting all the threads banned and merged into megathreads

rather then letting us post in a clan section where you basically just have to check if people bump too often

We can't ban threads. What does that even mean? 

We're not going to have separate rules for clans. Forum rules apply to everyone. We have the clan section - it's the mega thread. Twirly gave you a very good answer. It explains our logic behind running things the way we do re clans/communities very well. I'd suggest you read it again. 

Our goal is to keep the forum organized and user friendly. That's why empty posts (which includes any kind of bumps) are against the rules.

They've all been banned and their posts removed. Just keep reporting them, it was particularly worse today. I'll forward the suggestion on a captcha filter for signup to the team. Thanks

Not a big deal, but it would be awesome with a "Dark mode/theme". My eyes would be pleased =)

A Moderator is really needed for the german section(and maybe other countries). Right now there is too many people disrespecting the rules just to get in the top 3 posts to advertise their community. If you warn them they will most likely ignore you and if you report the thread other mods are probably not able to understand what these threads are on about. There can be done more about it. 

Beside that I would love to see a scheme that is used in any language. Like all the current existing threads translated into the specific language. That way these sections look tidier and are easy to manage. Right now the german section looks like a general discussion thread mixed with 10% advertisments to other community's.

I enjoy the way the english side of the forum looks and it is quite handy, thats why It could be good to use the existing basis for other countries too:

In the meanwhile BlueHole are still seeking assistant community managers, one which can speak German.

I was thinking an easy way to avoid the spam posters lately would be to just restrict the amount of new topics you can start in an hour/x amount interval. Like being able to only create 5 per-hour or something?

Please add a captcha for the forum registration. These spam bots really get annoying :/

I would like the KNOWN & ADDRESSED... thread to be much more clear and up-to-date.

  1. Reduce it to only one post instead of two at the moment
  2. Split the points into multiple categories:
    1. Planed features / changes
    2. Added features / changes
    3. Discussion threads / topics
  3. Remove the big uninformative links at the start and merge them with the respective point as link to the text (like this: KNOWN & ADDRESSED)
  4. Keep the list up-to-date (i feel the list is very much out of date since i read in multiple suggestion threads things that will get implemented but are not in this list of planed features. Or things that are presented on twitter, twitch, ... or other sources.

There is and has always been a captcha for registration. Some of the spammers may not be bots : )

Wasn't sure where to suggest this but it's regarding this forum

 

Will it be possible to add a 'shoutbox' so we can say hi in the morning and for some funny memes from time to time?  I added a poll :)

Something seems to have broken the RSS feed on the https://www.playbattlegrounds.com/news web. 

The last post in the RSS feed was this post: https://www.playbattlegrounds.com/news/posts/gunplay-mechanics and it was previously found at http://www.playbattlegrounds.com/feed/ but now it seems to be gone entirely. I really liked it, and a lot of people are still using RSS.

Not sure if this is the place to address but seems the "Quote" button isn't working correctly. 

Just noticed this too: After I post a reply, it saves my reply on the text box and gives me the notification that it has "saved my reply from the time prior" etc.

Forum had a small maintenance hopefully it's all resolved now.

The forum uses a PUBG styled theme and currently there are no plans to change this. There are extensions you can use with some browsers that allow you to use Dark Themes which is probably the best course of action.

Thanks
