Trolling is frequently observed in online platforms of communication, although, it remains as an obscure phenomenon. This is due to it having limited empirical research and lack of consensus about the definitions amongst scholars. This study aims to bring an insight into trolling behavior by presenting an overview of previous research on toxic behaviors that are considered as trolling in online communities and in the context of online gaming. Additionally, a questionnaire that is used to observe how trolling is perceived was conducted to 83 participants and the findings are discussed.

Network modeling and simulation of massively multiplayer online games
Bozcan, Selcuk; İşler, Veysi (2012-08-01)
Massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) have become highly popular in the last decade and now attract millions of users from all over the world to play in an evolving virtual world concurrently over the Internet. The high popularity of MMOGs created a rapidly growing market and this highly dynamic market has forced game developers to step up competitively. However, MMOG development is a challenging and expensive process. In this study, we present a high-level network simulation environment, which can be ...

Loneliness, Mindfulness, Daily Online Social Networking Time and Duration of Romantic Relationship with regard to Problematic Internet Use
Ulu Yalçınkaya, Ayşe; Kurşuncu, Mustafa Alperen; Demir, Ayhan Gürbüz; Demir, Ayçin (null; 2018-08-01)
The Internet has been part of our lives for almost three decades and it is not surprising that some individuals demonstrate problematic internet use behaviours. Problematic or excessive internet use is considered as one of the dysfunctional ways of avoiding social relations and using communication skills. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between Internet addiction, loneliness, mindfulness, duration of romantic relationships and daily social networking time in university students....
"KEYWORDING" IN FACEBOOK GROUPS: A CASE STUDY ON GROUPING POSTS IN AN INFORMAL ONLINE LEARNING COMMUNITY
Caner, Sonay; Doğan, Sibel; Çelik, Berkan (2017-01-01)
Facebook groups have been used formally or informally in educational contexts all over the world. These groups allow users share texts, videos, images or files. However, in these groups, when new posts are shared, previously shared posts go below, if they are not liked and commented constantly. As a result, group members have to make an extra effort to reach those posts. That is, it is difficult for people to access the group posts later, and eventually information quickly consumed and goes out of members' ...
Neural-network-based process controller design and on-line application to fluidised bed combustion
Altug, S; Tulunay, E (1996-08-01)
Intelligent on-line control has been increasingly popular in the past decade. In this paper, a neural-network-based controller utilising a modified error term in the backpropagation algorithm is presented for the purpose of on-line control of the nonlinear time-varying fluidised bed combustion (FBC) process. The aim of the modification of the error term was to improve the controller performance by enabling the neural network to perform a 'negative hysteresis' action. The general design steps, alterations in...
