General Forum Maturity Jul. 7th, 2009 @ 07:21 PM

I would like to begin my thread with this: the general forum is far far too immature.

I mean, its acceptable to talk about farts and cocks and stuff when you are 12 (which some of you guys probably are) but the majority of you guys should have grown out of that stuff ages ago. If you guys haven't noticed, every other forum (except maybe Video Games) looks down on you guys as the (mostly) crappy users of Newgrounds.

I posted here 2 years ago (when I was 12) and I was even more mature than most of you guys are acting now...It's just sad.

And something has to be sad about flaming in the general forum (about half of you flame, the other people are actually sympathetic). People come here with a real problem and you guys (assuming its fake, since most of the stuff posted here is) flame the person, not caring if the person is really telling the truth.

I mean really, look at FatKidWitAJetPacks thread. Sure most of you guys are sympathetic while the others flame like "lawlawl attention whore." or "its cuz your fat!"

Examples of general forum immaturity:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Yes. I do know that Wi/Ht?, C&C, and probably Politics look down on us!

BUT WE STILL GOT THE MOST PEOPLE RIGHT??

Just because i don't like politics and shit like that doesn't make me immature. I just like a good laugh from time to time, and that is what you get here.


My opinions are so useless, I don't even listen to them.

Dont tell us how we need to behave, thats why we have mods here so they can delete immature stuff thats pointless and out of hand. They seem to find everything and ban you for that post you did yesterday and forgot about. Your point is meaningless to people who just want to let it all hang out and not talk about quantum physics.

Yeah, but there is a line between funny and retarded, and most of you dance on it.

Liking politics doesn't make you mature. Not talking about shits and farts are what make you mature.

You don't need to talk about quantum physics to be mature. Intelligence and maturity are 2 completely different things.

Yes sir, this internet forum needs to be more mature and intelligent. We must discuss politics and be completely nice to each other, even in arguments, because that's what people on the internet do.

Yeah like a coorporate meeting where the boss is telling all the secretaries how nice they look and how he wants to grab their tits and they ask him if he has a huge cock and then they ask him for a raise to get breast implants and he accepts so hes got big titties to look at when he goes to work.

While it's true that sometimes people at other forums frown upon General, some users here are not bad. Actually there are some good mature users in this forum, but they are usually outnumbered by the "other people".

The best thing you can do, is ignore the posts you don't like, and the threads that you consider immature. Just don't pay attention to them and focus on the good ones.

Yeah and the other forums are ghey cause noone is in them. Plus I dont like how this guy is talking shit about my threads, Lube is a reality and the internet is a good place to get real advice to some of your most personal problems and get solutions. If you get 20 replies usually the 2 useful ones are all you need to get on with whatever your trying to figure out.

You guys don't seem to get it.

I'm not saying you have to discuss politics, quantum physics, science, or debate with anyone. But I am asking you guys to act your age. I mean cmon, a 24 year old (Dobica) should not be acting like a 12 year old.

Simple explanation why:

Website about games and movies + lots of users + general forum ALWAYS = immaturity

It is a simple fact. Yes, while Newgrounds is the best website of it's kind and the original, it is NOT the only of its kind. I have been to many websites and have experienced far worse than this. The moderators and administrators here work very hard at keeping this the site that it is. It is thanks to the hard work of many moderators that we are not spammed nearly as badly as many other websites. You should be happy. We aren't that bad off, really.

like fuck I shouldnt. When your in public you can act like a human but all those urges you developed during the day + mixing it with high caffinated coffee and you need somewhere to let loose. Plus you are on a site that built its infrostructure on immiturity and cheapshot lulz.

Hardly ever real stuff is posted here. And lots of stuff sounds fake. So we assume everything is fake.

This is just my opinion, but I hate when I'm going to post a reply to a thread, and when I'm finished and post the "post it!" button, I realize that there are lots of posts before mine that weren't there before. Some of them may even say what I just wrote, making my post useless. Personally, I hate that. I prefer forums which are a bit slower than that, that actually look like a forum and not like a chat. But as I said, this is just my opinion. I also prefer having a few mature people posting than having hundreds of immature users derailing the thread, though this is an "extreme" example.

I'd also say that's quite a bad problem. As you say, it comes to the point when people will just assume everything is fake, when there may be some posts with cool stories that get ignored because of the high amount of topics that are blatant lies.

It's the weekly NG Lecture Thread, where some poor, brave soul says 'Come on guys, how did we come to this? Look at how disgusting you all are. You are bad human beings and I am much better than all of you.' I'm glad Newgrounds is sticking with tradition.


Give my thoughts form and make them look insightful.

I never called you bad human beings and that I am better than you. You guys don't seem to understand that I was just suggesting that you be more mature. I was not putting myself above you and I was not trying to get anyone mad.

I wasn't forcing anyone to be more mature and I wasn't even getting mad about it. You guys don't need to respond flaming me for making a suggestion.

Anyway, since you care, they have.

Yeah, it's pretty hard. It seems people would rather just keep acting like idiots.

It's not really my problem though, I was just trying to give some advice to people.

But since this topic has no point (since you people don't want to take my advice) I think I am going to have a mod lock it so it doesn't turn into a flame war.

Good day and I'm sorry for making this topic I guess.

its not a matter of maturity, i really think its a matter of stupidity. the immature posters post the same lame immature jokes, the only posts i laugh at that are immature are new immature posts, yeah grab his cock, cock joke, tits or gtfo, yeah these were all funny at one point in time but now it just seems that alot of younger (low post) users just keep repeating the same jokes over and over and over again.

So i guess if your going to be immature AT LEAST be fucking original. some of you just make my prostate swell up in anger with your repetition of old and not so funny things to say.

Its like that annoying friend of yours that can only say movie quotes as jokes.. gahh i hate those people
