I know I do it, and I'm sure everyone else does it. When your browsing through the forums and shit and your reading a post, you size up the profile of the person who is posting to decide how much weight to give that post.

So I ask you, at what Level / Post Count / Sign-up Date do you consider the user a respectable one? Or do you not judge? Is everyone equal? Am I gay?

When you make good threads and / or posts. It's not hard really.

When you take enough penises up the butt. You can cheat though, by taking a metal dildo wrapped in barb wire, and sliding it into your bumhole and moving it around to stretch and cut the hole up.

I thought using the Fab aura automatically gave you over 9000 respect points.

But seriously:

This is pretty much it. I know '10 and '11 users that have made some decent posts and topics. Posts are one thing, but I've yet to master the art of starting a NewGrounds golden nugget BBS topic.

I used to pay attention to things such as level/post count, but as of recent I couldn't really care less. As long as they have some decent form of contribution to the topic at hand then I have every reason to have respect for their post.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

When you have high stats.

Pimp, for example. All he did was reach level 60 and make some flashes

It's really a combination of things and it varies by who is giving the respect. For some it's stats, some people like quality, and others just see certain users more than others.

I really, really hate how everyone puts so much emphasis on making topics and stirring discussions. It's gotten to the point where people make a topic just for the sake of making a topic that gets a lot of replies. Having a topic get a lot of replies doesn't mean that you or the topic is successful, and it does not make you cool.

If you have something to say, make a topic about it. If not, don't.

What is wrong with you people?

Double edged sword.

Moment you get any kind of 'respect' for whatever reason on here, it's countered by someone who suddenly wants to dislike you for the same reason.

Yeah, I don't think you really get respect unless you're a mod. Everyone on here is a cunt.

You being a primary example of this.

No offense.

Some people like Gagsy and tend to agree with her opinions she strongly expresses. Usually, I fall in this category and have known Gagsy as a BBS user for some time now. We disagree sometimes, but no one shared the same opinions.

There are others who hate Gagsy and think she's the biggest attention whore/white knight on Newgrounds. Some express this offensively, while others a better at showing their disapproval by simply avoiding abusive language and instead using logic and common sense when debating with her.

As for Mods, almost everyone has their favourite mod to hate along with every mod to love. Not everyone respects EyeLovePoozy for example, derailing topics he posts in to whine how he lets one person slip by his high standards, yet slap them with a ban for allegedly 'the same thing'.

Universal respect, whether through being liked or simply the begruding respect shown to a rival, is not achievable. Someone will disrespect you, but generally if you post well, admit to mistakes and stand firm in your beliefs you will find some respect amoung the regulars as a BBS user. Make some good content on the portals and you'll find respect amoung a fan base that way.

What ever you do, don't bother with trying to make a name for yourself in the Politics or Writer's Forum. I hear no-one cares who's who in those forums ;D

Sarcasm, right?

Politics isn't so bad if you regular there, and post competently. It can work with any new user. That's really all they ask, and the folks in the lounge thread are actually very friendly to those that know when to debate and when to relax. I haven't even been there in a long time and I can safely vouch for that without fear of being hypocritical.

A lot of people, myself included, are quick to get snarky about the Politics forum. It is however one of the few places I've ever seen online where definite right-wingers can get on moderately well and maturely with definite left-wingers. Not many forums accomodate for that. I sometimes just wish I were a good debater, because despite what some may think (or in confirmation), I'm dreadful at politics.

Writing is a little more obvious. I maintain that I wished that they had thought it over a little more. Not that I'm angry or annoyed or anything. Few attempts at standardisation though has lead to over a year of squabbling over standards, which often unfortunately comes out very snobbishly at times. Some people want to be overly harsh to everyone to force the messge home, wheras I am always more than likely to lay it on lightly. That applies to when I read stuff lightly here (admittedly not happened regularly in a long time) or when I'm doing stuff academically.

There's also the point that more 'experienced' writers (whether that mean they've been here for a long time, or maybe they've been published once or twice) tend to act very... you know, and lesser-knowns have, in my experience with the forum, the tendency to just follow them. This is regardless of whether or not the 'experienced' is actually good or, in my honest opinion, a little overrated. That is the point of the Writing forum after all.

Can I make a point about Wi/Ht being close-knit now too!?

The most respected thing on NG would have to be experience points. How often do you think Pimp is mentioned as opposed to other record holders like AfroUnderScoreStud and XwaynecoltX? A ton more. I have tons of reviews and I am not the most respected guy out there. Trust me, if there's one way to guarantee how good you are, you have to hold records in experience points. Positive awards help too.

To get respect, one must be respectable.

So, do things that you think are respectable. If you get respect: great! You've just solidified your understanding of what is respectable. If you haven't? Well... at least you're trying.

Or have a yellow aura. That works too.

Hell, if anything it works better than trying to act reasonably on here. Damn kids and their inability to see past some colours on the side of the posts.
