LBP MODERATORS NEED TO BE FIRED (or automatic algorithm trashed)

Rate this Entry
There are many things wrong with LBP. The biggest is (in this case, ARE) moderators and the automatic flagging system. Why?

They contradict their actual purpose. Instead of keeping the community safe and respectable, blah blah blah, they delete innocent content and ignore the bad stuff. A report on a comment instantly gets it moderated (since moderators are obviously much too lazy to personally check them themselves) and counts AS A STRIKE AGAINST THE PSN ACCOUNT. No confirmations at all-just a strike INSTANTLY-which is bad, since the game is filled with people who have no idea how THE GOOD GRIEF SYSTEM WORKS or WHAT IT'S FOR, and reports critical (but appropriate) reviews on their levels or whatnot. Please get rid of the stupid thing or do a better job of moderating comments.
Also, please hire new LEVEL MODERATORS. At the press of a button, all copied levels will be WIPED OFF OF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. Republishing is what the trolls will do, right? NOPE. You can't republish a MODERATED LEVEL. Yet, despite the millions of complaints, NO ONE has done anything about copying. Troll levels, copied levels, etc are still UP AND RUNNING. MEANWHILE, A DECENT LEVEL WHICH HAS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OR MAYBE A NAUGHTY OBSTACLE/TROLL OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS REPORTED BY A SELECT BUTTON-HAPPY KID, AND IS TAKEN DOWN. FOREVER. Just like that. What's up with that? I can publish a perfectly fine level which might have a Mario object in it because I might like him, and it gets reported and permanently taken down, while some lazy dude gets plays and hearts and stars and yays and no reports or moderation action taken on their level, which could be WIPEOUT, a copied level ABUSING a REGISTERED TRADEMARK OR WHATEVER, FYI MODERATORS. WHY IS THERE A COPYRIGHT REPORT OPTION, ANYWAY. HOW DO YOU EXPECT SIX YEAR OLDS (the majority of players) TO GET THE CONCEPT OF THAT? Please, please, please IMPROVE or GET RID OF that system, MKAY Media Neglector [ > ]? Thanks for reading.

    The "LBP Moderators" are mods from Sony. The problem here is that the moderation system is kinda poor, and the PSN is an open network. You don't need to pay to start an account.

    The reason why innocent levels are being taken down is because they have some pictures or audio made by others in the community. Those pictures or audio are "guilty media", which gets moderated easily. Any level containing guilty media gets moderated as well, along with the levels that the level keys in the level link to, or is it the levels that have the level keys that link to the level?

    I see your pain, but there's nothing else to do. The only hope is to wait for LBP Hub.

    Game developers can hire their own moderators. In LBP's case, their unique moderators will test reported levels, investigate stuff, etc. Sony's moderators would never play/focus on a specific game (like playing LBP just to test a reported level) to moderate something. The problem is, they suck, just like PSN's. They might as well be removed. And I sure am looking forward to LBP Hub, except for the fact that it's regular LBP with a newer coat of paint over it and certain restrictions which means that it's almost exactly the same as the normal game, (same levels, same community levels, etc [you can even play with LBP2 players]) so you're better off playing the normal game. It's what you'd get from a free-to-play.

    I think there should be a filter (which is hard to program) where you will block everybody's level from your view except for the levels made by members of an LBP fansite. To do this, you have an option to prove that you are a member of a specific fansite. If you are, you can decide whether you can see all levels, levels from fansites only, or levels from your fansite only. This can be changed through your PSN settings (which is not a feature yet, but a feature that should be added).
