So recently I am having some problems with "Choice of Games subreddit, especially in its moderation since its only moderator (at the time I was writing this) is an employee at COG and his recent actions on the subreddit.
For some context, there is this post of another user asking about the criteria on posts in the subreddit and asked if it was nitpicking from Jason (aka the only mod before he added an inactive 9 months old account that did not interact with the subreddit or whatsoever before) due to the fact that some topics involving Hosted Games (a company that COG created where the people that weren’t hired as full employees to COG are allowed to post) were removed with no explanation.
Because It seems to be a real common error that happens in the subreddit, I decided to answer it by explaining that HG posts were removed with no explanation and since there were no rules at the time he posted the question, I explained that if the post had HG content then it should be posted on the HG subreddit instead (even though the subreddit is much less active and has only has 1k members while the COG subreddit has 6k members) and answered that he does remove topics that he doesn’t like/made moderation decisions that were nitpicking in which I gave two examples by dramas that Jason did nitpicking and showed an imgur of a thread that Jason nuked because it questioned " if it is company policy to allow the advertisements which the company would be hesitant or outright refuse due to author’s standing" I also latter showed a link where it had more information from other COG dramas and basically functioned as an archive (NOTE: I would like to say however that this one was 100% my mistake as you could say that it was used to cause unnecessary drama in which I only realised after some time)
After that, Jason went in and deleted my comments and banned me from both subreddits
And he was quite rude when answering some questions and saying things in a passive-aggressive manner and saying things like “I appreciate that you think that, but you are wrong.” when a person corrected him when he said that HG and COG player bases are different even though that everyone pretty much likes the same things and most the times when a poll is created with the options in which company they prefer, everyone ends up voting HG but having favorites in COG.
But even though I don’t agree with all of his actions he did recently, I got to give props to him since he added the rules now to not confuse new posters, he also added some more moderators in the HG subreddit soo it’s going to have some other people point of view for a chance.
