I'm 16. but you're in the right section. this discussion is to talk about the offspring!!! go in general chat to ask this question!

I know you are not going to listen to it, but come on, this part of the forums is about The Offspring. Not about age.

Hamer
10-30-2004, 12:43 AM
Nah. I'll post in the one forum. That's what people do here: post where they want. That's how it's been for the past several years that I've used the Offspring forums anyway and it's not about to change. I'm just wondering which forum has been designated the new Fan Corner.

Anyway, thanks for sticking to topic ;)

General Chat. Its not far if you scroll down on the first page of the forums.

Hamer
10-30-2004, 12:54 AM
Oh well.

I do assume that you've posted these warnings in every other non-Offspring topic in this particular forum too.

But anyway, like I said... How old is everyone? Browsing through this forum earlier I was just so compelled to ask, as it seems that the plus-fifteens have disappeared. Seriously. Every single topic I've seen is based around questions that have been asked and answered to death countless times before, and the general feeling from reading the replies to these topics is that the general age of the BBS members has decreased. Being an old hand myself, this is interesting, if not slightly disturbing. The place feels dumbed down and I'm looking for people my age again, like it used to be. Also I'm interested in finding out about new nice (emphasis) board members. I met a lot of people through this board, a few in particular. Hopefully there are a few more potentials on here now too - there does seem to be a hell of a lot of new members all of a sudden, which is a surprise.

This is the most popular forum, hence me posting a question here. There's a reason I didn't post this topic in a forum like the Tour section - few people post there.

Yeah because this doesn`t belong in the tour section smart ass. This belongs somewhere else and I don`t give a fuck about your line of thinking just like many others around here. Post in the right section and search for friends over there

I'm really bored. But I've already eaten my breakfast... And I don't have tasty Haribo gummi bears anymore... Ate them yesterday... And I hate gummi bears with pineapple taste...

nightvision
10-30-2004, 02:57 AM
I haven't eaten breakfast yet... Will probably do that very soon.
Gummi bears with pineapple taste?? That's gotta be disgusting.

Sixpence.
10-30-2004, 03:02 AM
Yeah. And I also hate the green ones. I only like red, orange and yellow HARIBO's gummi bears.
That's the HARIBO Color-Rado (nice name by the way...) and I also hate the licorice with the colored kind of eatable wax. That just tastes disgusting. And I don't want to talk about the consistency...

(There's nothing more heartbreaking and emotionally shattering than having some random internet stranger yell at you on a board that you've been a member of for several years. I bleed inside :()

Haribo is a damn good choice, it reminds me of being a child again! But I misread and thought you said you eat it for breakfast... Which is not necessarily wrong, but still, ew, weird :P

poor poor Hamer, but after those years you`ve been a member you should know better than post a dumb thread in a section where it doesn`t belong.

@Obie2trice
Sooner or later all this threads reach their ends and then you have to talk about something else in this thread. I don't know how you think but I hate to repeat the same again and again just to say something to the topic.

So if this happens in all threads here you shouldn't be pissed off just because he started a thread like this.
If you don't like it just ignore it. I think many threads here are irrelevant. 1000 threads a day about the worst album, the worst song, the best album, the best song - that really pisses me off! But I can post like a human without being rude. At least I'm trying.
So if there are any threads you want to keep up, then post in it over and over so the other ones see it and post too but stop fucking around here, please.
Don't get me wrong but that really doesn't yield a result.

Don't be afraid, I won't eat you only because you're 15. :)

(The Black Butterfly)
Welcome to the board! As long as you don't take what people say too seriously, I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay. There are a lot of nice people here.

Sixpence, being here for so long has caused me to become so very tired of the same old topics every day too. But it has also given me the ability to not get irritated when people get pissed off when I post a topic that they don't see as being relevant to being an Offspring fan. Like I said in another post, this place used to be a community. If you want that place to become one again (and not just some board full of strangers asking generic questions day in, day out) then there has to be space for a variety of questions and conversation. It just amuses me now after so long some people are still happy with seeing and replying to the same old stuff. Where's the point or fun in that?

The board's a board for a reason, after all... If all you wanted was an answer to an Offspring-related question, I'm sure the band could easily pay someone to spend a day compiling an FAQ page and just be done with it.

Oh and long messages are definitely my thing yes :)

the black butterfly
10-30-2004, 04:28 AM
thanks, i feel very welcomed by all :)

Sixpence.
10-30-2004, 04:29 AM
@Hamer

Mine too. Well that fits. I'm enjoying it to read long messages because then you'll get to know the opinion of the other one much better.
And that's one of the facts which keep a NICE community alive.

Hamer
10-30-2004, 05:06 AM
Being from Germany, how easy/difficult do you find it to keep up with the British slang words that are used here all the time? The conversation on places like this is always pretty informal, so I always wondered.

Sixpence.
10-30-2004, 05:15 AM
Yeah I ask myself how it works... Maybe I'm talented. No I was kidding... Well I'm not writing straight A's in English but B's :) and I'm learning it for 7 years now. In school. I never made an exchange and I've never been to America or UK before... So I don't know. It works properly. And if I don't know a word I look it up in an online dictionary.
I understand pretty much of it without looking words up, though.

But I always think I make to many mistakes. These tenses will kill me sooner or later...

10-30-2004, 05:19 AM

Sixpence.
10-30-2004, 06:36 AM
No sorry. :) Just English and a little bit French (but I think I nearly forgot everything I've learned in French lessons... No, not at all. I know one sentence! :D )

Hamer
10-30-2004, 06:36 AM
I tried to learn when I was younger because I used to go to Portugal a lot when I was a kid, but I didn't get very far for no particular reason. I only got to learning a few phrases.

Favourite country in the world. :)

Strider
10-30-2004, 06:44 AM
Oh ok...well if you wish to continue on learning, you should take a few lessons here in Brazil. Our Portuguese is easier to learn

Sixpence.
10-30-2004, 07:03 AM
@Strider
Why is it easier? Is there a main difference between the Brazil and the Portuguese Portuguese?
I'm just curious :)

I'm just curious :)

Indeed. It is because their Portuguese is more...ummm...let's say complicated. Ours is easier because we do not follow ALL the grammar rules. And we Brazilians also speak more slowly. The difference can be compared to learning English: UK vs. USA.

Jake
10-30-2004, 10:41 AM
yea i think its mandy, offspringbaby2004, who also 14, but i may be wrong
