In regard to our OSRS Gold"working good as is," we are aware that it's not ideal, but there isn't always a solution that fulfills issues from all perspectives. Additionally, there are other issues taking up our time, and we're just volunteers, so we don't always have the time to dedicate to tackle a number of those smaller problems. My previous remarks were meant to explain why the situation stands as it now does for the specific issues mentioned, not explain why things will not change. We are open to making changes that would be beneficial for everyone.
A vast majority of consumers view the subreddits as being independent anyhow ( runescape = RS3 and 2007 runescape = OSRS), so this is not something we have had to address prominently because the quantity of OSRS-related admissions this is minimal. 1 complication with post filtering is it can not be presumed users will always utilize criteria in a post that will visit a filter since this isn't necessarily the situation. AutoModerator filters based on particular standards, so building a precise list that is only specific to what you're trying to catch is not always possible.
Some users know how to deliberately bypass filters, making them useless, and if we create a filter overly broad, more articles are filtered than warranted. This creates more frustration for users and much more work for us while we'd like to avoid over-moderating. We may look in to trying to revive a filter to get phishing email inquiries, but that is something for us to discuss in private one of the mod team. The previous filter was unable to achieve what was desired at the moment, so it had been disabled for the time being. These articles do discuss an obsession with other filters within our subreddit, so a number of them are eliminated for different factors.
We don't wish to be in the spotlight for driving community discussion. While a few other subreddits may have a highly visible mod presence, that's not something we're considering. If we have an important message to get across, that's 1 matter, but mod articles from us are extremely infrequent.
I don't think anyone in any capacity expects a plug and play solution nor expects anyone in the mod group to break their back for no cover. Filters require upkeep to correctly function, take spam blockers for e-mail; that has decades of effort to make sure the Nigerian prince does not make it to your inbox and hell sometimes it doesn't work, sometimes my 2FA ends up in spam, but we still don't delete a spam filter. I just wish to explain that I'm not talking you at some presser or Buy RuneScape 2007 Gold simply having a conversation.
