Dear BF3Blog readers,
As a site grows, attains a readership, gains visitors, it reaches a tipping point where a die hard reader-base is established, where regular commentators are crowned, where friendships and rivalries among readers are formed. And where heated debates are fought every day.
We can safely say that BF3blog is at that tipping point right now. We’re still a young site by any standard, and the feedback and support we’re getting from you, our readers, has been inspirational to us. We’re working hard to bring you the latest and best Battlefield 3 news, and we’re delighted that discussions and debates are now present on every news post, and it’s common see 100+ comments on them.
However, lately, there’s been some trolling, some name-calling, some very heated debates. In small doses, that’s fine, but we’d prefer if everyone from now on could stay civil and generally be respective of each other. Speaking of discussions, be sure to check out our forums as well, with many active members and discussions (and where you can register and secure your username).
We welcome any opinion at BF3blog, be it for or against Battlefield 3, its competitors, or something entirely different. We believe in free speech and rarely delete comments, even if the comments are critical of BF3blog. However, if you post something insulting other members, rest assured that it’ll be removed and you’ll be banned. And please have something constructive to say. Writing “BF3 RULEZ CoD sux!!” is kinda lame.
Obviously, this is a BF3 site, so competing games are bound to take a beating from us — after all, Battlefield 3 will be better than Modern Warfare 3 But we don’t have to act like immature kids to get the point across.
No doubt that many of you are very passionate about Battlefield 3 — so are we, and that’s where a lot the energy on this site comes from: the excitement and anticipation for the game. Let’s just try and act like adults about it. As one of our commenters, Turbo7, said a few days ago:
“Arguments or disagreements are are bound to happen, and welcomed for that matter. But, if we’re going to disagree let’s do it with some dignity and try not to make asses out of ourselves.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
P.S. Thanks to all of you for your passionate support! BF3blog wouldn’t be here without you.
