Hello fellow tankers.
I'm posting here because for many months WG have ignored the poor situation inside the italian sub-forum. Actually our forum is swarmed by trolls and multiple accounts made for only one purpose: trolling and insulting without the risk of ban.
Periodically an external member, not an italian speaking moderator or a dedicated one, storm into the forum and close some topics without any reason only because, for example, in the post/topic are used words like "cheat, aimbot" or similar, is not important if the word is used for trolling or in a constructive topic..


We want a moderator ASAP! who ban the trolls because at this time the forum is not readable. Before the removing of reputation points I got over +900 pts without posting any video/replay/mod/skin, I proposed myself many times (and I'm not the only one) for the role of moderator, every time a random staff member have confirmed the problem: WG is not insterested in hiring an italian moderator. Now we want to know why? The italian community is not big as russian or polish but not too small to be abandoned.

 

We send every day tons of reports for insults, offence, real life threats, accounts made only for trolling and much more, only one user has been banned for 1 week in over 1 year of reports.

 

I've sent many pm's to many wg staff members and only one replied to me in 3 months

 

Thank you Azkolek for the first and the last reply sent to me from a moderation staff member for this case.

This is a true [edited], we want an official statement on the moderation issue.

Hi Mike,

I'm Azkolek, the French Community Manager. Thank you for your message regarding moderation! It's always nice to hear from passionate players who really care about the Community and its serenity.

I understand and appreciate your dedication (believe me, you're not the first to raise the subject), but at the moment we don't have information about Italian moderator recruitment, but I can assure you we're looking into it and should get more information to share soon.


In the meantime, if you really spot obvious trolls/insults, don't hesitate to Report them, the reports should be treated as usual.

Therefore I suggest you to be patient and encourage positive participation amongst other players on the Italian section!

Cheers,

Azkolek

It's also pretty much a disgrace that WG hasn't thought to add an Italian tech tree to the game.

It really is way overdue

did Italy have anything worth tanking in? All I've seen in WW2 pics were metal coffins and the little history I read said they were more suited to policing the natives.

 

Over to you for pics and corrections

Given that Italy fought in WW2 from the start till 1943-44 and some units right to the end they should be represented in a game that covers the period.

They had a number of Medium and light tanks some decent TDs and then some tankettes and armoured cars.

 

Given that the French and Japanese lines are heavily fictionalised and that Czech, Finnish, Polish, Swedish, and whoever else you wish to add to the game will be limited to mainly light and medium tanks and then post war designs then yes an Italian Tech tree is entirely possible.

Wouldn't surprise me if Benito had a few drawings of tank designs that could also be added.

We aren't interested atm in an Italian tech tree, we need a forum moderator ASAP to ban trolls and flamers.

I apologise for hijacking your thread, Its just something that has annoyed me for some time.

 

Moderator probably will not help much tbh they are overstretched on the forum pages that are moderated there are just too many idiots.

 

We as players really need to just never take the bait and reply to the trolls.

 

Again my apologies and gl

Thread Moved to a more suitable part of the forum, I've informed a Community Manager of this post and hopefully you will get a reply regarding the situation with the Italian Sub Forum.

Let me just jump in here and let you guys know what's going on regarding the Italian subforum. 

 

I realize that this is a sensitive topic, even though I cannot actually understand any Italian and therefore not see what the situation on our subforum is like, it seems to be less than ideal. (insert joke about understatement here)

 

We currently do not officially support Italian in our community team and do not have any Italian staff. As such, we lack the resources to be able to moderate the subforum.

 

Our moderators are doing their best when reports are made, but this is obviously problematic without speaking the language.

 

We opened the Italian section to give Italian speakers a place where they aren't forced to speak another language, but just like the other "smaller" language subforums, these cannot necessarily be moderated and rely on everyone trying to follow Wheaton's Law.

 

We are currently looking into options on how to deal with the situation, but with Gamescom coming up this might take a while longer. 

 

Until then, please try not to fan the flames and feed the trolls! :justwait:

Finnish community made a Finnish flag on the CW map.

 

We have really high skilled players and clans. Even the BBQCryB streamed battles with one of them

Yet we don't get it. I guess we are not paying enough for the Mr. Greed Serb to notice us.

The almighty SerB, not only does he work on the game, sandbox and owns the Moon, hes also the personal manager and CEO of WG.
