mx you're scaring me bro, it seems like it's coming to an end - I hope that one day you can go back to hosting communal tabs written F.U.B.U like that brand of clothing no one wears these days.

i don't know if thats what happened, btw. about the emeritus thing? just happened after some complained about some fairly tongue in cheek news stories i wrote. legit stories, however. and music related

anyway no big deal if nothing done about it or can't be done. just would be nice so i can post unrestrained again

remember that time blockhead insisted we were obsessed w/ his forum

seems to me there's a solid list of 25 posts suggesting it's kinda the other way around

"ad hominem"

"i don't really care what you think because like i've said before you and your whole little crew are nothing but trash who like to suck each other off"

highly developed sense of self-awareness in this one

your "argument" is essentially that one "insular" group ruined a second insular group's good time, and also that the first group is a "circle jerk"or something

i'm sorry blockster, but im not buying the "i had an entire argument" trope

maybe this whole idea of people searching for content and being satisfied by reading age old posts instead of live interaction with people who have the answers

i know i posted questions in certain forums and was linked to an age old discussion and whilst this provided some answers i think i would have gotten a lot more if a conversation had started.

so maybe the current community needs to be a lot more open to noobs and be willing to embrace the questions and add a little more value than a link to an archive

so in effect that rationalisation of the boards is almost like a control, alt and delete but the objective has to be to allow it to develop along the lines of what was here previously

new, clean, well supported boards will bring new and experienced posters. just gotta make sure they know mx exists

I agree with the whole being open to noobs thing

I weathered that initial storm of suspicion and abuse, but not having that storm in the first place is what would make this place more popular, even if it's the trickiest part

blockhead gave me so much shit when i started. though i was a 13 year old girl and more of a whiner than i am now if you can believe that.

aaa has a good point with the whole quoting links instead of discussing scenario. people would always rather a discussion happening in real time.

the noob thing is something we should collectively try to work on, but its also kind of inherent to the medium

like, i dont think anyone was aggressively unwelcoming to that influx of hc guys immediately after they started posting.

just streams of posts from the same user with no avatar and hundreds of emoticons, is just unattractive to the eye imo

hard to believe fc lol

anyway, its the same that happened in pnwi. people started posting links instead of giving opinion and we ended up with more reference to wiki and other bs such that peoples opinions looked like they were formed when in fact the links mildly supported their point of view.

i never posted in the pit for years since everything i needed could be found in the football thread and in pnwi. i put a lot of it down to trolls who came up from the pit and decided to share their il informed opinions just because they wanted to post something, they needed to post. every one knows the offenders

and truthfully i am not sure people like their private personal world being splashed all over the place. fingers and mardy are two recent victims although the former deserved a lot of it for being a persistent dickwit

Actually, citing sources is probs healthy in pnwi

People should quote relevant stuff though, sure

citing sources is fine in any debate or discussion and its important that people do

it is a must that the content at the links is relevant

but this isn't about that. its more about engaging in conversation instead of using links to make ones point. its more about getting someone else's opinion or perspective. i could search the interwebs all day and find sites that have content all day. that not what i want. i don't to hyperlink my way to knowledge. i want to learn from others and also hone my own opinions by respecting their comments. maybe even change my opinion based on these inputs but do it in a way that doesn't allow fuckheads to jump all over me and thrash the point that maybe my opinions were misplaced at the outset.

its called discussion. it needs interaction. it requires respect. and it doesn't egotistical little nerds who have developed a mode of posting that doesn't allow them to back down and even admit they may have gotten it wrong. they just continue to pursue the weakest point without accepting the overall. they should go outside and play football or cricket or bake or tend to their goats from time to time.

When was the last time you recall seeing an irrelavant or only partially relevant link

I'm reading pnwi now and I'm not seeing any of what you're describing tbh

In fact there's far more 'discussion' than link dropping

it has been on the way out for a number of years.

since around the time that siva_chair got trolled off really. and then alex left a couple of times. as a matter of fact its demise coincided with obama getting into office first time around.
