    I’m really surprised at the amount of like and voice coming on my previous post. So I wanted to talk about another thing. I want to talk about making Paralives a peaceful fanbase and keeping the possible toxic fans in their place. I did said I was worried about the high expectations a lot of fans had for paralives. I’m also concerned about possible toxic fans that may try to be a bully to the creators and fans alike. What do you guys think is the best way to promote peace and preventing a lot bullying for the fanbase?

    That’s been on my mind too… Unfortunately still have no idea what we could possibly do… Maybe the moderator banning them from being able to continue to leave toxic and harmful comments.

    The best way to promote peace is to simply ignore them imo.

    There’s a common misconception that ignoring a troll stops them. If you don’t point out someone’s bad behavior, if you don’t react, if you don’t openly tell them they are wrong, you not only allow them to continue their act unchecked, you also open the door wide for other troublemakers to come in.

    I think the only way to keep a friendly community is to promote good behavior while strictly moderating and systematically removing the bad. In other words: reward and celebrate the positive people while silently and quickly removing the negatives.

    I’m not sure there’s much you can do as a regular fan. The last thing you want to do is start a heated argument with someone and become part of the problem. In my opinion, the best option is to keep putting out positive content and allow moderators to take care of the toxic ones. The best-case scenario would be a negative comment getting no attention, therefore becoming obsolete.

    Honestly, there’s not much we can do as simple members however, we can minimise their effect by not engaging with them in arguments, ignoring them and then maybe letting the mods deal with the inappropriate comments?

    Exactly what I mean, if you just ignore them then their posts gain no attention and they’ll be removed by a moderator without any harm done. If you get into a day long, 10 person argument with them then it’s just unneeded stress for everybody involved apart from the troll. Ignoring them is the best way to stop them, it’s not a misconception.

    Ah, I guess I worded my thoughts wrong, my apologies. I did not mean that we should engage in an actual discussion with trolls. That would be a foolish and destructive thing to do, because that’s exactly what trolls thrive on. What I did mean was that we should absolutely always take moderation action against them. Start with giving them one warning for the first transgression, exactly one, so the troll and the rest of the community know the behavior is not accepted, and then ban with extreme prejudice if they blunder again.

    I’ve been a member of forums where the concept of ignoring a troll was taken to the extreme, allowing them to stay and flourish because “you get rid of one, ten more will come anyway, so what’s the point”. That was extremely harmful for the community, and that was the attitude I was referencing in my post.

    I agree that we should not engage the trolls, but we should remember to click that “Report” button to let the moderators know – not just ignore them.

    That’s really the only plausible option I could see in keeping them in check its gonna have to be a community effort otherwise because toxic fans can only do harm if they are allowed to group together against the regular community.
