After having a perfectly ok post removed, where may I complain?

Perhaps ask the moderator why. Mods around here are very nice and kind. I doubt they did it for no reason.

Linux commercial games - you better like FPS...

Smells of an advertisement attempt!

How on earth does that smell of "advertising"?

I was trying to point out that most commercial Linux games are FPS!

I would say just because of the title it was removed.

What's wrong with the title? Please enlighten me!

Lies!

Just the other day I was browsing these forums. I had a cup of coffee and a donut. I had just reached a post by a moderator, who shall remain nameless for reasons that will shortly become obvious, when I realized my cup was empty. I left the screen at the moderator's post and the donut beside the keyboard to go get some more coffee. When I returned, the donut was gone! The forum moderator's avatar looked fatter though. I think the evidence speaks for itself here.

The moderators are donut stealers!

Not to speclate that that is the reason your post was removed. but if it was ... yeah, thats pretty lame. Advertisement? Smells like the truth to me.

Anyhow, the place would be likely in the Forum feedback and help/Resolution center.

Cheers

If you have a complaint, go to the Resolution Center (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=123) and enter your complaint there. I'm the mod involved, so I won't close the thread.

Not just linux but of any kind. And it's boring. Tactical grid-based war games, deep combat flight simulators, are all dead in the mainstream. It's pointless to point out the FPS genre is the majority in Linux since it's the majority of any platform capable of 3D graphics.

Unless it's portal, it's more of a puzzle, although too short >.<

So because you consider it pointless, I'm not allowed to express my opinion?

Windows has far more non-FPS games than it has FPS.

Portal isn't native!

That's true. But it's still a REALLY fun game.

I'm a moderator on a different site. You can complain to me :D

Before complaining, remember this thing though: This isn't a free speech venue; it is a private forum governed by rules and regulations you agreed to when you sign up, so don't argue about 'rights' for a thread being removed mistake or not. You have a privilege to post here. They can remove anything they wish from their judgment.

I'm not a mod or a staffer (nor do I want to be or act like one), though I do have to repeat a piece of common sense now and then, as a reminder.

Well, personally I think the moderators here do a great job and seem to stop a lot of problems before they happen. I'm not a moderator or admin on any forums BUT I did used to own a forum host that had roughly 10,000 forums hosted on it that I had full access over if needed :D Well, and I used to have forums on the site too, meh, I sold the site and it went down the drain after that

I would say it was me, but it wasn't :)

The OP has had his questioned answered so I'm closing this thread before it descends into a blame fest for the world wide shortage of doughnuts.
