More and more this forum is starting to become a dumping ground for people who are experiencing technical problems with BGG. There’s already a bugs forum, which is where that stuff belongs. We need the description of the Complaints forum to indicate that this isn’t the place for technical issues. Or maybe a pinned thread at the top of the forum. It probably won’t change anyone’s behavior, but we’ll be better able to mock transgressors at least.

+1. I'm in favor of any policy where the main objective is to more effectively mock people.

but what if you just want to complain about the technical problem as opposed to pointing out that there is a technical problem?

I would like to volunteer as a Complaints/Bugs/Suggestions/HowToBGG admin, with power to move threads between these forums.

I'm all for that!

But these bug threds aren't even complaints. They're simply posts noticing a problem and asking for help. That's totally bug forum stuff.

I would like to volunteer as the person who then says you're doing it wrong.

There's no need to formally volunteer. Just start doing it.

Or in other words... you're doing it wrong.

Moderation is probably a step too far... but I'm all for mocking and shaming.

The Complaint Department: come for the mocking, stay for the shaming.
