View Full Version : Rules/Reg's - Are You Serious?

Nov 29th, 2010, 09:54 PM
I just wanna know how altering the rules/reg's as a ''sign of good faith'' meant printing my handle in a locked sticky like some big reviling example - that was a single thread, and I counted like 40-something posts by a member in one thread, and double/triple/quadruple/quintuple posts in others, which I was trying to refrain from doing by editing posts as I read through threads, since most other sites don't like that.

I know you get problems from peeps from time to time, but at least as a result of certain faux-pas and not getting positive responses, I admitted it and apologized. If I'm somehow taking this insult to injury thing out of context, please lemme know.

I apologized for my conjectures toward MLE, as well as coming off as a douche with a thread I didn't know so many would take the wrong way. So as a ''sign of good faith'', he said he'd update the forum reg's, which now has my handle printed as an example of what not to do. Since I notice a lot of people do it, sometimes for no reason at all, I'm currently under the impression it's another unwarranted insult.

Lemme break this shit down and say that you should lurk a lot more, post once or twice, and develop a better understanding of the people around you. The key to getting people is not needing them, bro, and you're coming off as internet needy.

seriously, what the hell is that supposed to mean? If you didn't need anyone on a forum, you prolly wouldn't be committed to posting or hanging around for years, either.

I only mention that because a forum by definition necessitates more than one party. That and without others, you'll still be spouting your retarded garbage into a vacuum. Either way, I tried to be the Good Cop, but you can go fuck yourself now.

Nov 30th, 2010, 07:52 PM
and by definition, a forum is a place to spout all kinds of things, including retarded garbage. Maybe I underestimated the importance of a post on complaints about life in comparison to something less retarded, like bowel movements.

I asked what you meant cuz it didn't make sense you would stick around somewhere for 5 years and talk to me about not needing people on the net.

Nov 30th, 2010, 08:01 PM
I can stop, and have. I lurked for about a year after I made the account coz I forgot I had one. And I took an internet sabbatical for about six months a year or two ago. You seem hellbent on some sort of acception in the fastest way possible. Why else would you still be here and not cut your losses?

hot Kukuro
Nov 30th, 2010, 08:13 PM
what exactly do you mean by cutting losses? Cuz of the one post I made? If so, as far as that went, I made it cuz it seemed to fit the site. It was...mockery. That behavior you want people to expect. Tbh, I thought it got a bad reception cuz it may have hit close to home for some, and mockery becomes no fun when someone realizes they fit a category.

So it doesn't seem to make sense when people bitch and complain, or I see them do it constantly on other threads, and then I'm called the complainer. What's worse is when I already realized I prolly shouldn't have just jumped into rants without even caring about anyone else - hence my apology. For some reason, people seem unwilling to let it go, and it's not really my fault for getting miffed, the same as when you try to express your disdain by posting pictures of little boy knuckles.

Tadao

After the Secret Santa event is over I'm going to take a long break and really try to figure out how to improve my posts and do my best not to come off like a quirky wacky douche. Like this post.

I like how the approach of letting someone ramble on and on until they realize what they're saying typically turns out the best. I use this when people call into Comcast and eventually they mention the exact reason why their service isn't working or why they have a $600 bill.

Actually, your question was "Are You Serious?"

So to answer your question, no, we're not serious at all, hence the "mockery" in the name of the site.

Best thing a person can do on the forums is grow a thick skin and learn to not only laugh at the ridiculousness of everyone and everything around them, but also to laugh at themselves. Not a bad life lesson either.

sorry, mock, but it's kinda serious when you're singled out in print in the rules section. Above where it says no fun at the expense of someone else. You gotta draw a clearer line here, and being compared to Coolinator?... just plain insulting. And ya wonder why you keep chasing off new members.

I will give it to Zero, though - no one needs him, or any of this. I'm sure I'll pass this on to others. Maybe it'll shape up eventually around here, cuz I really have loved the site itself for years. Meanwhile, good luck with your growing community.

Perhaps I'm in the dark here, but what rules are you talking about being singled out in? If you were, I'm sure it's just in good fun and a part of the typical new user hazing rituals that take place around here... so certainly no need to let it bother you, make you pack your bags and run for the hills. That said, if your name is listed in the forum rules somewhere, let me know where exactly (include the link).

Do not reply to everything.
If you absolutely must reply after everyone's posts, do it in the Chat Room thread in General Blabber. Otherwise this will be seen as an extreme nuisance. One of the first things an admin looks for when investigating a nuisance is the number of times they post in a day. New people should keep it under 10 posts per day. If you're registered as hot Kukuro, this is especially important to keep in mind.



This is the horrible edit to the guidelines that will ruin his internet career.

Hey Hot Cakes,

I'm a new member of this site cause a friend of mine on here told me to join up. I've been a member of Something Awful, Stile Project, and a bunch of other forums since the late 90's when we had to dial up on a phone line so all we had to look forward to was forums cause they loaded so fast compared to the 15 minute download times for a 15 second hentai clip (dark days I tell ya).

Anyways, the reason I bring up the other forums and the old school days is that people on there were pretty awful (no pun intended). If you posted anything like this on any of those forums, not only would you be banned but you would probably be in a list of incredibly annoying posters who contribute little more than complaints and angsty rage over nothing.

You counted the other members posts? THEY BROKE THE LIMIT?! AND WERE NOT PUNISHED!?! OH GEE GOLLY JEEPERS (a cookie to whoever gets that reference) THIS IS UNFAIR!!!!

I have learned one thing for every single forum I was a member of, none of them are fair and that is what makes them so much damn fun. Seeing one person posting bowel movement stories and not being frowned upon because that is one of their trademarks is an amazingly fun experience and makes these places a good time for those who DO NOT TAKE IT SO SERIOUS!!!!!

I used to take the trollin so serious it would anger me IRL and I realized I wasn't seeing the forest from the trees. These places are meant for people to relax, join a community (on this site it seems to be thankfully tight knit) and talk to people about things you would never talk about in the real world.

You are in the FAQ. That is freakin awesome. You need to be like that Simpsons episode where Kent Brockman is like "Take two tickets and see the game! *Warning tickets are not to be taken orally*" and Homer with FULL PRIDE goes "SEE!? Because of ME they now need a warning!"

I hope ya stick around, drama is fun - have fun.

There's something to this. I will give another example:

I went to see Jimmy Pardo last month. He is known as a mostly crowd work comedian. He will goof on, insult, and generally make fun of you quickly if he can. For someone like me, who is a fan, an admirer if you will, there could be no greater honor than for him to single me out in his act. Last month I got my wish as he goofed on my laugh (because it sound stunted as I tried to cut it off so I wouldn't be interrupting him, so it did sound funny). It was a thrill to have 10-20 seconds of his act devoted to goofing on me.

If you think so highly of i-mockery, why not think of being singled out in a rule as an honor instead of a reason to have a dork tantrum?

and being compared to Coolinator?... just plain insulting.

The Coolinator was annoying and didn't get it. You are annoying and don't get it. If you want such comparisons to stop, I suggest you look into eliminating the parts of yourself that you have in common with him
