Tips On How To Survive Here Feb. 13th, 2013 @ 04:19 AM Reply

I started looking back a few pages and saw a thread where a user committed NG suicide (you guys know who he is). So I decided that, besides the rules, there needs to be some tips to new -and old- users on how to survive on the BBS.

Number 1
Most users are assholes, deal with it.

You guys have any more good tips?

Bronies and weeaboos are a thing on here, and they won't be going away anytime soon, so you will just have to nut up, shut up and put up with them.

Don't let anger cloud your judgement when you're about to post or send a message. Eat some ice cream and chill out for a bit.

How do those two sound?

LESSON 1: If you intend to leave Newgrounds forever and actually tell us about it, you're not actually leaving.

The BBS, and really any internet forum, is better off without the people who take forums so seriously, imo


It made more sense in my head.

That's pretty much all the advice you need, the very fundamental faccet of NG survival. Specific advice on how deal with it may be required. As I see it there are three options:

1) Ignore assholes
2) Become an asshole
3) Make fun of assholes

The guide is complete.

This forum will not cause people to commit suicide of you are a regular, functioning adult. If not then Newgrounds can hardly be blamed. How ever I think it would be nice if you were a bit nicer to people on here. If you haven't been in the Internet since you were a fetus, i.e have a fucking life and are normal then insults can feel a bit harsh.

Let's hope so.

In all seriousness though, yeah, this is all assholes to people, and I'm definitely one of them.

1) If you're going to start an argument make sure you know at least a little about what you're talking about.

So you don't make an even bigger ass out of yourself when you figure out you're more than likely wrong.

Attempting to smartass your way around forum rules won't really get you banned.

19 out of 20 users won't change their mind after debating you you. Deal with it.

Posting in spam threads will get you banned, even if you didn't intend to spam in the thread. Deal with it.

Don't try to be nice to users. They will use and abuse your kindness.

There are some cyber bullies here and you better give them your cyber lunch money. Deal with it.

Many people will call you troll for the sole reason of disagreeing with them. Deal with it.

Don't you ever,ever mention the word apple when you talk about Adam and Eve. You will receive tens of replies scolding you for not mentioning it as forbidden fruit, because bible says forbidden fruit instead of apple.

Flame wars are something you don't really wanna get into, unless you have your whole day arguing with others while everybody is aware of the fact that the second tip in this post is true.

Don't post memes. They are not approved here. You will be eaten alive after being burned and then thrown in the sea.

Being an asshole will instantly make you a good and funny user.

The forum here is not that great. Deal with it.

Although sucking other important users' assholes has been proved to be a good way to be become famous, don't do it. You will then have to say to everybody that you love 'em and send them silly "<3" things.

Knuckle cracking is silly. Cut it off.

Me and my *ahem* "associates" are willing to debate these points with you. And by debate I mean convince you that you are wrong by being very ominous and mean looking.

I am willing to debate that with you and your associates too. And by associates I mean a 20 years old man whose bedroom is full of Kiba posters.

If you don't give any fucks, why would you bother coming here?
Because people are always logical, and rational, and never contradict themselves.

I know they are not (i just have to look at myself for that), but when it comes to visiting a forum it is clear to me that visiting equals giving somewhat of a fuck. If not you would stay away.
