[EMN] Take Inventory
@Saya No need to go that far. This isn't a troll thread -- Take Inventory happens to be completely unplayable in Vintage, but it's still one of the top 3 most playable cards spoiled so far, and the discussion was started in good faith.

Yeah, to be fair I got excited by the card too and completely missed the sorcery line.
the last thing that has to happen is for this site to become anally moderated again, it's what made the last version suck to the point no one bothered posting anything over fear of being made fun of by the elite douche cunts that ran TMD

The only thing I'd like people to still do it tag the post with the set's 3 letter name, so you can know that's a spoiler discussion.

Hey, this card is great for casual. It gets to go right into my growing library of casual 60-card decks. I mean, that WOULD be great if I hadn't recently downgraded AK itself out of the Vintage-playable box and put it into casual decks, too!

Tell us what you really think, Jugger.

@Juggernaut-GO That being said. Let's steer a little clear of saying things that might provoke moderation. Right now there aren't rules right? Let's not demonstrate the need for rules.
I've had a lot of people talk to me about leaving TMD, before and after the redesign. People have absolutely said they have left because the moderation was too aggressive
More commonly though, people have complained about the signal-to-noise being too low (e.g. unmoderated threads about cards and decks they think are bad)
At least as frequently, people have left because of problem posters, either specific people or in abstract - trolls, harassment, overly argumentative/combative posts ... complaints that moderation is too lax
There is no way to run the site that keeps all of these parties happy.

All the changes you made since the new site made me happy. The new interface took some getting used to, but it's much easier to use. The moderation has been calm and careful as it slips between big personalities, but you've still been willing to use the hammer when required (the recent thread on counterfeits, for example).
You're doing a bang up job, and you should assume that everyone who is not actively complaining (i.e. the vast majority of us) appreciate and enjoy all of your hard work.
(Signal to noise complaints on a site with as low a level of traffic as The Mana Drain confuse me immensely. Have people ever been to MTG Salvation? )
Oh sure, I wasn't fishing there I've gotten lots of kind words about the new site. I just wanted to make sure people were cutting the mod staff (both past and present) a little slack ... it's a fine line people walk, and every decision you make, somebody is happy and somebody is mad
When you are one of those problem posters (I am trying to get better :/)...
But this is the reason I think customization is important: give people the ability to tailor content to their liking by allowing them to ignore posters/posts/topics that they don't wish to deal with. Even if I'm one of those posters that people end up ignoring.
For starters, I would create a separate category for "New Card Discussions". You can also create a category exclusively for deck design with a tier system (simplistic - "Established Archetypes" and "New Strategies"). This would work well with the ignore category function to remove some of the SNR.
@ChubbyRain in theory that exists. People should be using the subject-line tags for new cards/single card discussion stuff, which can then be filtered on .... but I haven't figured out how to push that cultural change yet
@Brass-Man Is there a way to filter out tags from unread? I couldn't figure it out.
@ChubbyRain actually I don't think there is ... you can just look at one tag (which would do it if everyone used "deck-discussion", but you can't look at everything BUT one tag ... definitely make a thread in metadiscussion/feature requests if that's something you could use
... not that I've been able to get to a ton of those lately
