While I do agree that as part of a community everyone should have the opportunity to partake in that community, I have a question for you all:

Why must all of you take over 80% of the threads? I have been into numerous threads hoping for something interesting, and then I see tons of posts related to nothing I, nor the other 95% of posters care about.

I have a suggestion and I hope you will consider it:

I suggest you start a group for all of you to get together and carry on your discussions there. I respectfully ask of you all to consider this.

Thank you.

I kinda agree with IamSam here. Sorry girls, but he is right :o You're too spammy with endless expressing of how much you love each other, don't take it as an insult please, cool your cute heads and try to understand that repeating those things everyday is not something community here would appreciate. Please, okay? :o And let's stay cool about it cause I like you! :)

You missed the point. Nobody hates you, nobody wants you to go completely away. People just want threads to stay on topic. We all request the same courtesy from all members, and many members have faced having their posts deleted if not on topic. You are lucky this has not happened to you guys. Keep posting- we don't want you to go away. But please stay on topic, and keep the "I love you sooo much!" posts for the "post count" and "say something about" threads.

I'm gonna have to say a major problem is your screen name. Hard to pronounce/remember screen names are not good for people remembering you. I mean, I can think "that person with the eye avatar" but that's not really great either.

The only reason I started noticing/distinguishing you is because you (a) sang/played guitar (or whatever instrument) in some stuff in other bands that I was reading about one night and (b) you said you were in chemistry.

you are totally missing my point behind this i think. I'm not trying to change my image or anything like that. Betty had a good point. And I haven't behaved in any way since I came back here that would warrant being thrown in with the rest as being one to take over threads with how i love everyone and whatever. Either way, I didn't like the "nvrfound" part of my username. So I'm getting rid of it.

Lost don't take it seriously. It takes time to get noticed. You should ask T-6005. He was very much in your position 4 years ago. And look where he is now! People might not reply to him directly, but they at least glance at his posts!

It takes time to get through people's natural "spam filters." I only noticed you recently as well, mostly because of your high amounts of more thoughtful posts. Perhaps you didn't always post thoughtful posts, or perhaps you engaged in small talk a lot.

I mean, it WAS a lot of small talk in the past. But... well idk... I seem to have lost my fire on this one. Either way, I prefer just Lost. so... idk... i'm not really thinking straight. I guess i mostly didn't like being chunked in with that group. I love Rutegard and Dr.Vanessa and what not, but I mean... idk... i think i just got a little carried away.

Perhaps you should look into what you want from your "posting experience". (what a douchy sounding phrase, just awful.)

If you mainly want to meet likeminded people who you talk well with, then what's the problem?

If you want to engage in discussion you can also do that.

It's not mutually exclusive, but you will find that it annoys people when small talk fills the majority of what was a thread with potential. But people have already covered this point to death.

I don't think the screen name made a difference. I think that you've pretty much not posted enough that stands out to me or to some other people, and perhaps you showed up here around the same time as Rutegard and folks, or just got noticed then. Changing your sn won't make a difference, particularly because we'll all still associate you with the previous screen name.
Just try making some new threads that might be interesting to discuss. Just be yourself and talk about interesting things and contribute. I'm not sure where the idea that you're along the likes of Rutegard and such came from, but it shouldn't be hard to shift. But changing your screen name will do nothing.

well... usually when i start in on the small talk, its already shifted that way. if it hasn't, then i usually try to post something worth reading to more than the person it was aimed at.

Personally, I have noticed more quality behind Lost's posts as of recently. Honestly, until the past few weeks, she (she, right?) just blended in with all the riff-raff "small-talkers" that fill this board. I don't know if it's because Lost has simply been posting more lately, but I have begun to actually read her (her, right?) posts lately, at least more than I used to.

I still (choose to) think that a lot of people skipped me because of the numbers.

I did fail to gel with this place for a while, it's true, but it's also partly because I just browsed for a bit, didn't find anything of note, then got progressively more interested in the going-ons, and that led to the actual joining of discussions - which in itself takes a bit because no one listens to you if you've never popped up on their radar before. It's gradual.

Also I think you sounded like a dick, implying that I used to be any less high-profile.

except for the PS part, what you did here, is what i do generally, actually i can't remember a single time i post in a thread where i am talking off topic without staying on topic for the majority of my posts...

and if i did, it was to reply to someone... take dexter thread for example, it started as a stupid thread, now it's just endless random stupid stuff about dexter, but at least it's funny, and as far as i'm concerned...we all (most active ones) contributed to it.

I find it fucking annoying when I want to find some information in a topic, but then I have to go through 98234598237 (most of them useless) posts. Specially on GOD. If you guys want to chat, that's what General discussion is made for. This is nothing personal. It's just that some people only read the boards to get info.

This talking about democracy is bullshit because (again) the boards have the general discussion. This is the area you can talk and do whatever you want. That's because of "democracy" the internet has a lot of pervs e pedophiles. I think things should be controlled yeah.

There is a difference between posting 'nice pic' and the following diatribe:



OMFG hahahahahahahahahahahhaha lololololololol:D

Girl you make me laugh! OMG hahahahahahaha

And having that repeated 15 goddamn times in one thread. It's not the little things that bother me, it's the taking over of threads as one big giant 'lol.'

And I'm not apologizing and no, sending a PM about this wouldn't have solved anything. It needed to be out in public where others could voice their opinions on the topic as well.

sending a PM about this wouldn't have solved anything. It needed to be out in public where others could voice their opinions on the topic as well.

How can you be so sure that sending a PM wouldn't have solved anything. I bet that you never even considered this as an option. If you had taken this approach in the beginning, I am sure all this could have been avoided.

Anyway, I don't draw offense to you personally, but rather the rampant posting style that seems to obliterate many a thread and derail them into oblivion. I think it is good for you guys to have formed your niche of friends, but what I'm merely asking is if you could start a group and keep a bunch of the off topic shenanigans in there so they don't take over other threads.

Still haven't found where I've ever been rude to you, Rutegard, either. I merely used your name in the topic because you're the only name I can rightly remember as all the others are somewhat forgettable.

A PM wouldn't have solved anything because it wouldn't have let others that feel the same way as me voice their opinion. Placing it in public allows everyone to voice their opinion, come to a possible compromise, and move on. Considering a PM for this is like using a broom to clean up an oil spill. Hardly feasible. Trust me, I've thought about this for a while.

And what would have been avoided? People also saying that they don't like threads being overran? People getting their feelings hurt even though nothing was said that was overly mean spirited?

Avoiding conflict isn't smart. It just creates tension that boils over into a giant shit storm. This isn't a giant shit storm. This is just a small discussion of what could be done different.

wow.

1. derailing threads with "LOLOL I LUV U LETS GET MARRIED THE OFFSPRING WILL PLAY" and other random crap is annoying as all hell. so is using tons of smileys. *
2. the appropriate places for such behaviors are as follows: the chatroom, AIM, MSN Messenger or iChat.
3. there is no reason to get all indignant and butthurt because someone pointed out that you're being annoying. people don't want you to leave and never come back :(:(:(:(. they want you to reconsider the way you post on the board. if that's an issue for you, perhaps you should ask yourself why.
4. IamSam has absolutely nothing to apologize for.

* - i have no problems with silliness or random crap or acting hyper on the internet, as long as it's not bothering the hell out of other people. i have bbs friends that i talk to and a lot of it is all "weoeoeoeo omg i luv u <3<3 ;p ;p ;D ;D ;D i poke u in face". that being said, we have the good sense to keep that shit out of threads where people might *gasp* want to have an actual discussion.

..do you consider that much? over here the system's quite different, so we go to high school for a minimum of 6 years, if you want to go to university (but you start in high school at the age of 12). university is another 4 to 5 years. except medicine, that's 6 years.

by the way, omg, I'm so off topic. *slaps forehead*

I can see how a topic can get derailed (especially if it's gotten boring, or everything's basically been said, or something) & it's not like I don't ever help to derail one. I do see how it gets annoying when someone does it all. the. time. with every. single. topic. yeah, that's definitely tiring. you should be happy someone says something about it, even if it's out in the open (well, you shouldn't be happy about it, but you could be). IamSam could've just not said anything & then maybe everyone would've gotten annoyed with the way you derail a certain amount of topics, without you knowing & realising. & hey, now it's out in the open, you get to see how others feel about your posting too & that's kind of a plus, right? really, in a way, he did you a favour. don't be insulted too easily. that's not a good trait around here.

fine, so you don't agree. let's not turn this into some kind of issue, because it really really really isn't. it's just a small suggestion, to keep things on topic. REALLY. it's not a huge deal to devote one topic out of a million to it.

edit; it's nothing personal either, that could make Rutegard embarrassed, or ashamed, it's not an attack on her persona... I see you want to stick up for your friend, which is awesome basically, but some critique now & then doesn't mean the end of the world. she'll survive, I'm sure. to me she comes across as a bubbly, cheery young lady, well-equipped in the brain-area, who can put together an excellent argument for herself.

I agree with you that this is not a huge issue, all I was questioning was IamSam's approach to the situation.

Well, I really do think that making friends on boards and talking to people from different places are really great things, however, 'polluting' the area that's supposed to be the most special one is not nice at all. I might have done it some times, I can't think of anything now, but betcha I did.
I believe that the General Offspring Discussion is supposed to have repplies and converstions only about The Offspring, I know you might really like someone who might post there, after all, this person probably (absolutely?) is a The Offspring fan (Which, for me, is an excuse for liking someone :P), but let's keep in mind that we firstly came here to talk about our favorite band, its news and its members.
I really did not mean to offend anyone by posting this, this is just my opinion and I felt like it.
I'd be really sad if I knew that Rutegard or anyone else left the boards because of this thread, I saw no offension in it, it's just a friendly way to say that something has been bothering some of the users.
I believe that it's better to be told that you're doing something wrong than no one telling you that you're wrong, of course, in a respectful way.
That's my thought, anyway. :)

haha JoY u r so objective,

yes, he was rude and disrespectful and i know now that maybe IamSam didn't mean it, but it was how i felt ok?

and despite i never felt like i was spamming and neither it was my intention i WILL refrain from doing that, (god help me)

me and all of us!, cause i believe it's a bit unfair if ppl start blaming only me for all the spaming/non topic posts...

i may have done that....in the past, i'll say it again....in the past!! (specially cause i have to stay away from the BBS starting next week...damn...)

i hope we can all get along together, after all we are just a bunch of great ppl that care for the exact same thing, (tho i don't remember what :p j/k eheh)

Just to let everyone know, i didn't change it to "change my reputation". I know in the semi-chaos(with as chaotic as a single thread on a forum can get in the middle of the night.) it seemed to come over that way, but it was Betty's comment that made the idea. I had been wanting to change it anyway, but wanted to avoid the "shut up you noob" comments. Then Ryder reminded me that there are enough people here that know me that I would be able to avoid that.

I don't know why I feel the need to justify myself...

This week hasn't been a good week, so I overreacted a little for sure.

Either way, I didn't like the "nvrfound" part of my username. So I'm getting rid of it.

But really, what's the big deal about Lost's changing nickname? She didn't do that for any reasons this thread was meant to be about. She didn't "spam" or post many smiles in a row, she isn't "addicted to multicolor her posts". You rather mistake her for someone else or didn't communicate with her much to understand that you're wrong, you're just making jokes about wrong person.
Changing her nickname and creating this thread at the same time was a coincidence, nothing more. Don't know, why it's even discussed here that much.

I just noticed that you're Portuguese? That might explain a little bit... perhaps you shouldn't give up because it's hard, though. Maybe you'd better your English or learn some things. I'm not saying that everyone who types long posts is smart or anything, but if you're giving up on them because they're harder to read, you might gain something by challenging yourself.

Also, very few people feel the way you do, so typing like that only caters to a few, while leaving the majority uninterested in reading your posts. I personally would be more likely to read your posts if they weren't so scattered and take up the whole page.

haha whatever, though. It's your decision what you get from posting here, right? It'd be great if some effort was made toward the original point of this thread on your part, but it's not just you.

Niiiiiiiice, this thread just went way off topic now.

We're discussing the spaces between lines, how many times people press enter while they type, if they are dumb for not enjoying long posts or pretty inteligent if they read thick texts, and who is important or not.

I think the creators of this thread had their answer already. They tried to adress an issue which was bothering them. It seems to me that the adressed people don't fell like changing, so what?

As far as I know the only people who rule the behaviour of others in this forum are the mods.

aww. <3! you're so cute, because you're honest & sincere & I know that's what I always try to be, so sometimes our personalities cause some kind of confrontation, but it never leads to a bitchfight, but rather to a good discussion. you're awesome.<3

haha and once again I'm part of the thread going off topic. And it's in the exact way that the thread is initially complaining about. :D But I generally agree, Bella!
