    A tentative Peace Treaty

    Let's all work together to make the MacRumors gaming forums a
    happy place once again.

    1. Everybody quit using the word "Fanboy". Chances are you are
      yourself if you feel compelled to use it.

    2. Try to refrain from trash talking a console if you have nothing
      constructive to add to a discussion. Don't repost that same
      negativeargument again and again in every thread about that
      console youdon't care much about.

    3. The "A console shouldn't be that expensive." VS "If you were
      a true gamer you should't mind forking that much" argument is
      getting old. Skip it. The price of each console is as low as each
      manufacturer can make it considering competitiveness VS profit.

    4. Please copy/Paste one of the following in your sig and be done
      with it. Stop spamming all threads with biased opinions about your
      personal taste in console and why you're so great for worshipping it.


    XBox 360 Rulez!!!111OneWii is poo.PS3 suxorz.

    Wii is da bomb!!!111OneXBox 360 is lame.PS3 suxorz.

    PS3 Forever!!!111OneWii is poo.XBox 360 is lame.



    This list is not all inclusive. Just wanted to ring an alarm bell here.
    Think of it as some sort of Gaming Forum Geneva Convention Draft.
    Play nice!

    You're doing exactly what you're espousing against. Until this point you were on the right track but then you lowered yourself to the same level.

    Here's my suggestion without belittling your fellow users: Report bad posts.

    I report like crazy and you'd be surprised at the number of posts that I've had the mods delete or threads locked down.

    That was meant as tongue in cheek to lighten the post. Looks like I missed the mark. It's hard to convey homor or irony in a forum post. ^_^ I wasn't really expecting people to take me seriously on this point. Uh-oh… I think I might have made a big boo-boo. :eek:

    I've tried very hard to maintain an open and neutral stance in the console wars and I'm very sorry if I failed at that.

    All are welcome to add to this list. Let's call it a peace treaty.

    Also to ask people not to talk about the price of a game system is crazy, thats a HUGE part of many systems, if the Wii is under 200 i'll get no questions, and i'll never get a PS3 because it is too much money. I mean sony is become very pricey

    IF were not talking about $$ of the systems, let us not talk about graphics either ok?:p

    I know what you mean. But I pesonally think arguing about price is a no-win situation. I guess it's still possible to discuss price in a civilized manner but thus far we've only been running in circles.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all consoles are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable features; that among these are life, supporters, and the persuit of fun. :)
