This forum was created by the company Nexon itself for the games they create.
The forums are generally dead, and they take about 2 hours for new posts to pop up.
The community generally has an elitist attitude around, and frequently is annoyed by every newcomer into the forums.
Advertising bots and trollers frequently flood the forums, some users try to derail these ads for fun and the lulz, only to be stopped by the moderators, who have no sense in humor, even though they lock and delete those threads anyway.
People who have little understanding or have reading deficits often also flood the forums, as they keep posting things about Maplestory in the Section that you aren't supposed to talk about Maplestory.
People hate trolls there, ironically, if you flame the trolls back, they will also hate you.
The mods are usually among the most incompetent people, rarely speaking and often telling you to "Read the Rules before posting" even though you already have. They also frequently lock political discussions and tell you to use the ticket system to appeal your ban, even though we all know the ticket system is used to give people the shaft and ignore people by generally giving them canned responses.
There is also no edit button, after a user decided to make a forum family tree, get his thread locked, unlock it with a glitch, get it locked again, do it again, and eventually the mods took the edit button away.
Sydney: The Nexon Forums suck. There is no edit button after some idiots decided to make a forum family tree and got it locked. Then they exploited a glitch using the do not allow replies button and unchecking that to effectively break the lock. Instead the moderator -hime- being the total fool she is, decided to remove the entire edit button completely instead of just removing the do not allow replies button. Nice GOING. Anyway. The trollers/Nexon haters? Those are nothing but 9 year old attention hos who just want to get you upset and pissed off. The forums are so filled with them that I left.
The Combat Arms forums are run by a powertripping moderator called Stonegold. Stonegold has been known to ban people without giving warnings. Most users in the forum follow him due to their "newness". When Stonegold was introduced in mid-January, he implemented his own set of rules that cause most of the early generation forumers to leave. That ones left have to deal with the amount of followers this powertripping moderator has.
Scenario:Nexon Forums Battlegrounds section
Old Forumer: Hey guys

He also gives terribad answers to questions, usually with a link to fail customer support and then a locked for resolve even though the guy fails to get an answer from support.

New forumer: HELP! I got banned from a trap survey, what do I do?
Knight: *Links to customer support*
New forumer: Oh thanks
*an hour later*
New forumer: This doesn't even help at all! What the heck?
