Update: We understand that you guys are very passionate about the original "front line news" thread. As I mentioned before the thread has been the perfect example of why we should pay more attention to the moderation of the clan section, however we understand that you guys don't want to lose the actual worthwhile discussion that happened in there.

The moderators are currently working on cleaning the thread so we can restore it without all the posts that violated some of the forum rules. Since this will be quite a challenge, it will take some time.

As soon as the thread is clean we will reopen it and you will be able to use it to discuss clan related matters again. Until then, hang tight, follow the rules, and don't forget that we will pay way more attention to what's going on in this section. 

Thank you on behalf of all :)

First of all I'm completely serious and I count on reply of moderators.


Short story what happened:

1. On [NOXUS] clan livestream has been discovered that one of players use one of illegal mods forbidden recently http://worldoftanks....ir_play_policy/

2. Video goes to frontline news thread and disgust other players

3. Posters insult NOXUS clan for  not condemning the situation and sweeping under the rug


This way one of moderators closed the thread with reason "Too many insults, we closing this thread and archive."

For some unknown reason Frontline News was closed now although existed very long time, 3-4 years.

During last 3 years we could see many, many similar situation, insults, drama and other similar things but only posts were edited or removed.


Now on behalf of other players

I would like to ask for restoration of Frontline News thread.



First of all moderation destroyed most important, most active thread on this forum - representation of history.

It was one of longest threads which contained a long story of clan wars, global map, strongholds, tournaments and whole world of tanks history.

Moderation should clear this frontline news from last most insulting posts and back this thread to use.


Deleting threads cannot resolve this problem, actually Im 100% sure if one of moderators just post "Frontline news is not thread for report mods" everything could be ok.

I cannot understand why WG staff defending forbidden mods by deleting threads.

Even excluding from discussion mods issue - this thread is not worth it.


Yours sincerely, Forum Users

I'm not sure about bringing back the Frontline News thread, it seems that it's not going to happen. However, having a similar thread, in which people can discuss cw/sh/clan matters is needed. It's the core and heart of this forum section. However, there is currently alot of content that needs moderation. Alot of threads and posts have been invisibled and are pending moderation. That needs to be sorted out first.



The forum is not the place to report in-game rule violations. First of all, it is a violation of the "no naming and shaming" rule, and more importantly: moderators are not responsible for game bans. We moderators can only give forum warnings/suspensions and chat bans. 

Moreover, inulting people based on their nationality or engaging in political discussions (in an abusive manner) is also strictly against the forum rules.

Some of you know that I read this part of the forums on a daily basis, and I sometimes make posts myself (in the form of fail paint "memes" for example). However, I almost never warn or sanction anyone because this part of the forums should be moderated less strictly than the rest of the forums. After all, if people from certain clans are not being nice to others, then they will feel the consequences soon enough by losing a nice amount of boxes in SH for example :P

Nevertheless, there are lines that cannot be crossed. It is absolutely not cool to get a dozen of people to spam the same thing over and over again (making 3 posts about a clan violating rules is one thing, getting a dozen of people to spam about it is another...), to insult people based on their nationality (doesn't matter which), and to engage in political discussions in an abusive manner. 


We need to cooperate on this one...

Deleting whole thread because few people insulted? Its not ok. You should remove posts, ban them or do any sanctions, not remove historical thread.

The whole point is - new thread creating more riot and salt. And the fact is people are angry mainly because of deleting. Its wrong point of view.

You need to give it a bit of time. Even if we somehow decide to bring the Frontline News thread back anyway, it's going to take some time before you can notice it, because it's not just one page that needs to be moderated. The situation at the moment is messy, especially because some people decided to start a spam. Now... imagine a situation in which you ask me to convince the others to moderate & bring back the Frontline News thread. How am I going to be able to do that if everyone needs to keep dealing with the "Frontline News version X" threads that keep popping up?


The Frontline News thread still exists in a hidden section, and people who crossed the line will face consequences. However, at this point, I'm unable to say anything else about that thread. First things first...

Just bring it back, this is what we need.


Please read top of the thread.
