Fair enough.

We both were there when that epic event happened. loans decided to sig it. I asked if I could copy his sig, to which he replied 'make your own' - which I did, with the caption. Then loans copied me and slapped a similar caption on his. But I'm going to get me a new sig soon methinks.

also, yay, unbanned.

The Audio Forum is Falling Apart Again

So after about 10 minutes, if even that, of browsing topics in the forum, I've noticed that everything we tried to fix 2 months ago has already failed us. Take for example this thread. Whatever happened to letting threads die after the user has been helped out? Though the aggression is gone we're bumping threads with unneeded posts.

Another thing I've noticed is that it's been getting fairly spammy again. Really guys? Can we really not go that long without spamming?

And seriously, where are the mods? It seems like every time we get a new forum mod they disappear a week later.

I hate being like this but I'd really like to come here and not go WOW OMG at every single post I see. You guys whine about the rules being broken sometimes but then you don't abide to them yourselves.

Just my insight.

Falling apart

All very good points.

Come on regs, let's try and maintain a high standard here.

Why isn't there more of a mod presence? Threads go for days without a lock, which is where the spamminess comes in.

Falling Apart

I honestly think that if the regulars would strive to improve the quality of their contributions (This is NOT to say that post quality is -bad-, but I think it could always be better.

I guess I kind of envision the audio forum as a place where a user can come and find intelligent discourse between intelligent people who know what they're talking about. I'd love to see the audio forum being a 'gold standard' for other forums to strive to. We have a relatively small group of core users (so it seems to me), we could band together and really make shit pretty here.

No offense to anyone, but don't think for a second that Newgrounds is "an intelligent place for intelligent people". It's a nicely designed, nicely organized website/forum that's been overrun by kids with no internet courtesy. And until a major redesign is planned, there's no hope for it ever being any different.

Sorry, but somebody had to say it.


Sometimes, it would rain men. "Hallelujah!", we would cry. Thousands were killed.

So you're saying that because of the way the site is designed, users can't make a conscious choice to be more mature and helpful?

How is a redesign going to assist with that?

I never notice anything TOO bad because I don't leave the AP.

And even then, it's not TOO bad.

Yeah.. this "zomg the forums are falling apart" nonsensical bs is lulzy.

This forum is running... MUCHHH smoother and far less spammy than a couple years ago. I'd even go as far to say that the audio forum is very possibly the best run forum of any of the NG public forums.

Spend a minute in general and try to say anything is wrong here lol. I've been very happy with the goings of things here recently for the most part.

Bitching
Ah fucking shit. I spend all this time trying to carefully guide a song of mine towards a DECENT score, and some asshole destroys several days worth of work. It's too fucking hard to get recognized 'round here sometimes.

Ah well.

More bad news

Well, I just got a letter saying that loan papers never went through for my college tuition... That means I'm about $8800 down the hole right now. Beautiful.

On a path of self destruction

I have no idea why..maybe lack of sleep but I've never slept much but I've been fucking myself up the last couple days!
I took out the garbage and somehow ended up missed the last step on my way down a got a nice little (by little i mean my knee and half my shine) road burn. I cut nearly cut my thumb off last night while making dinner, luckily got away with cut..pretty deep and painful though. And this morning I took my dog to the doggy park to play with her little buddies and went through the little dog tunnel with her (lol she was too afraid to by herself) and stood up too soon at the end and hit my head on the concrete slab.

Someone is using voodoo on me i know it. I've never been this clumsy in my life lol.

FUCKING TOE

I'm going to be honest, I'm not the best on my feet, so I was just fucking around. So I was playing soccer in the backyard with some of my house mates. I was in goal and was doing pretty well to not let up too many shots. After a while I traded out and started to kick the ball around. I really wasn't doing too bad, but towards the end of the little scrimmage we had, I kicked the ground REALLY hard. Now before anyone calls me an idiot (I know I am), the backyard isn't exactly even. It's full of divots, and holes and what have you.
It just so happens that the ball was rolling past a hole. I went to go kick it and hit the ground. My toe is now black and blue and hurts like a mother fucker.

TL;DR I kicked the ground hard and jammed and or fractured my toe.

Just thought I'd share my dumb experience.

I'm too serious.

Lately, I've been noticing that I have close to zero tolerance for people being retards/people having fun.

For example, I posted on the wall of a facebook group where they used 'U' instead of 'you'. I can't stand people letting down on their proper English like that for some reason. People on the group instantly got pissed at me and told me I needed to take a chill pill.

Now with this 'crisis' (lol) I just have the feeling like all that off-topic derailment in typical threads shouldn't be allowed. It just annoys the hell out of me.

Do you guys have any tips for me to gain some sense of humour and/or open up for some 'normal' fun again? I see the internet as serious business for real I think, and that's probably the problem. AFL, HELP.

Take a couple days off from the internet. Go out and spend time with friends. They'll loosen you up. I have the same problem from time to time. Although it might be easier for me because I live with my friends. But give it a try, I've always found that to help.

They're all at school during the day, and my school is in the evening. I have nothing else do next to internet/computer. The people I consider as real friends are pretty much only contactable over the internet for me anyway... It's just that my world I constantly think it is so different to the things other people would talk about. When I hear casual chat about for example celebs, sports or any of such, I just get the feeling 'I can't believe you guys talk about such insignificant things'.

Perhaps I should just go out on my own and go jogging around here?

it's all diet bro. try eating an apply for breakfast every day first thing when you wake up, and see if that makes you feel any better. sense of humour is directly related to diet

I assume you mean an apple :p. Well, good, I'll do that, but you're not taking away my cereal. :p

it's probably a passing phase, when a girl become a woman, they have this thing called "PMS" about a week every month. They then bleed immensley out of their vagina, but they don't die from it. They do however get extremley cranky and bitchy, and that's most likley what happened to you.

There is no known cure.

Also, I hope it didn't seem I meant that people having fun are retards, as I didn't.
