I've seen this rant so much Rising Against..and quite frankly I like one liners that get straight to the point.. I like threads that give a
brief outline of a topic, with a video or link to back it up.
Yes, I see the same kind of message in a new thread every few weeks/months as well so It's not just you there. Is that necessarily a bad thing though?
I don't think so. Sometimes thing's like this need to be repeated in my opinion. Also, as someone who typically likes to write longer posts and
threads with as much information as I can possibly fit in there, I actually agree with you when you say: "I like one liners that get straight to the
point.. I like threads that give a brief outline of a topic, with a video or link to back it up. "
In fact I don't think I saw anyone say they disagree with what you just said there. What we do take issue with however is the 'pointless' one line
threads that contribute absolutely nothing to the board, or those thread's with nothing but a link or a 2 hour video and a quick comment to say
"Thoughts?", because they drag the quality of the site down. That's what is being discussed here, not all one line posts - but instead those comments
from people that contribute nothing.
I know Mblah fairly well now, I consider her a good friend of mine in fact and I 100% agree with the point
she's making here - the core point
being a great deal of members just don't seem to care anymore. A vast majority, from what I've seen myself, are looking to post so they can get the
most flags or stars instead of posting because they actually want to learn a thing or two and that's a great shame really because it shows.
I like this site a lot and I know Mblah does too, thus why she posted this thread in the first place and in the manner in which she did. For me this
forum is a favorite and quite frankly the best of It's kind and It'll probably remain that way for a long time and It's for that reason I at least try
to contribute whenever I can. But for that reason It can get frustrating to see a vast majority cancel you out and post nonsense thus dragging the
site down at the same time. That's why this thread is here, to highlight that annoyance in an effort to help tackle it. And that's one of the main
points I was making in my last post here
- Tackling that problem is not
something we should forget as a lot of people arguing in this thread have done thus far.
As I said in my first post in this thread: 'This is a great site as it stands right now and as they say - It's up to us, as a whole, to keep it that
way.' That's why I replied to your post Gabby, It was nothing personal, I just had to point out It seems like some in this thread are contributing to
the very thing we should be combating.
