I'm intrigued. Tell me more of these... smashboards.

It was better in 2006. But maybe that was just a middle-schooler looking through rose-tinted glasses because he spent most of his time looking at video game flash parodies rather than exploring the forum.

The user base contributes to what this Newgrounds is, has become, and will be. Some people make it awful around here. Some users have the tendency to lower the bar and then wag their finger around because people expected better. Why can't we expect for some people to grow up?

You are the one to blame. I mean, why would you even have faith on the bbs to later lose it?

The redundant "why did you have faith in the first place" posts certainly aren't helping.

Although most of it does happen in the General forum, I wouldn't mind seeing it cleaned up. A General forum is capable of fun and mature posts. Banning a few people who make posts after posts that are immature or irrelevant might help.

Hence my prior post to yours. That's the fourth generic reply of this page. Why should we accept this place as is? We could make it better, while other users are just making it worse and attempting to force everyone else to accept the way Newgrounds forums have become.

You are a really cool guy, so I'm not gonna criticize you.

The redundant "why did you have faith in the first place" posts certainly aren't helping.

They do. At least they are helping a lot more than the posts in which the users attempting to look smart,suggest solutions that are not even rational enough to be taken seriously? Those redundant posts show the harsh truth: Don't put faith on an online forum goddammit.

Although most of it does happen in the General forum, I wouldn't mind seeing it cleaned up. A General forum is capable of fun and mature posts. Banning a few people who make posts after posts that are immature or irrelevant might help.

Sometimes this forum is fun and mature. Also, banning a few people who make posts after posts that are immature won't help anyway.HINT: Gimmick accounts/trolls. Let alone this is going to end up to "you have a different opinion" bans.

Hence my prior post to yours. That's the fourth generic reply of this page. Why should we accept this place as it is?

Because you can't change it,unfortunately. Nice quote following:If you donâEUTMt like something, change it. If you canâEUTMt change it, change the way you think about it..

We could make it better, while other users are just making it worse and attempting to force everyone else to accept the way Newgrounds forums have become.

Make it better how? Tell us your plan. Wait I know the plan...Make awesome threads and mature but hilarious posts.
In case my post is going to be conceived the way I don't want it to be: I know the bbs can do better that it currently does. However, believing you can change it yourself is dumb.

Skimming through the thread I can't say I'm picking up your point? The situation was handled fine. Perhaps a stark reminder that the thread was spiralling towards a pulp of shit would've been in place, but in the end it doesn't really matter.

Also, "Natick"?

Hey, I lost faith in your mother, yet she kept coming back and after her terrible slumps, she redoubled her efforts, brought your sister and then everytihng was great again!

So, you know, just wait.

Alright....I've never had sex with your mother and sister, at the same time or otherwise. But I did once make eye contact with a girl. Or a mannequin, I just don't know, it was too fleeting.

It's Newgrounds, everybody likes to act dumb every now and then. Or forever, I don't really care. Besides, like another dude said, the whole damn internet is like that!

Agreed. Fun times. C&C forum isn't as alive as it once was, which is lame. :(

Another problem might be because everything is pretty much dumped in to the general forum, which makes it harder to discover the worthwhile threads. Maybe a few more forums to help split up the general forum? Perhaps a "Media & Technology" forum?
