What I really can't stand is when someone signs up for a forum just to spam it and make it look bad. They don't care if they get banned from the forum, they don't even like the forum they only joined to spam it, then after they're banned they'll just go to some other forum and just spam it. I really can't stand those types of people in a forum.

People who are unreasonably mean. Like, some newbie will make a slightly silly remark like 'don't you think ash would look good with green hair' and then somebody else will completely rip into them. They'll always be careful to stay just on the right side of the rules, while still being an arrogant *bleep*.

I hate yo nubz that make stupid pointless threads that end up getting locked and waste space and time, they post stupid questions and adverts, why the hell do they?

What really bugs me is when people use text message shorthand--since this isn't live chat, there's no reason to do that.

People who post stuff when they have no idea what they're talking about or don't read other posts carefully, i.e. in debates and stuff. And people who nitpick over ridiculous stuff.

Well there still new and not used to this kind of site.
I hate it when someone tries to be nice or trying to help the site or other people and someone comes along and starts making a fight about it thats like trying to tell a nice little old granny that wants help to cross the street and you just throw it in there face. (thats messed up believe it or not)

People who think that just because they have a paragraph of words and a good vocabulary they're the smartest people on the internet. Especially when they have no clue on what's going on and they're just in there to sound important. It urks me a lot.

Japanophiles on forums also irritate me a lot D: ^___^ =^.^= and ^0^ should only be used in moderation scarcity. "Kawaii" and "baka" should never be used at all.

I don't mind people who are totally shredders. That's just the way they are, and if you can't stand the heat, get outta the kitchen, is my philosophy. It's not like they always mean it, and some of them are actually really nice if you get to know them. xD;

But what really really bugs me is when someone won't listen. "No" isn't enough. You have to say, "NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO" before they finally get the idea drilled halfway through their head. Halfway. It's like, seriously. Get out of my face.

And then there are the people who don't take a hint. <_< I mean seriously. If I'm nice to everyone, but I'm a total jerk to you, does that tell you anything? Hmm? Anything at all? I probably have a reason why I hate your guts, and for that very reason, do me a favor and keep outta my life, yeah? Jeez, those kind of people really make me want to punch someone. xD;

I feel somewhat bad now about how much I type. o.o I also type in Japanese too XD, though when I do it, it's in full sentences, not just one Japanese word in the middle of a English paragraph, and I usually only do it on Mangahelpers in the Japanese sub forum. Though granted I do have a little ego, but everyone does about something...or I hope so, or else I would be alone in the subject and I would just seem like a giant arse. Let's see, I would have to say flaming spammers? Those who just spam over and over even after being told not to, then they insult the person who tried to inform them that what they were doing was against the rules.

I hate people like myself, who over use commas, overuse smilies, type in a small font, and believe that vocabulary and sarcasm will get them places. :/

I dislike people who suck up to authority. A lot. For example, people who will only quote a staff member or always agree with them bother me. Although a staff member usually has a valid point for many topics, some members don't bother to read another member's, but go straight to the moderator instead to quote them on it or rep them. I used to do it as a new member on my first joined forum and I hate myself for it. D:

I don't particularly hate anyone but there are a few that bug me.

When a newbie suggests something they get 'flamed' by the veterans who tend to be really arrogant. It's not a big deal now but it was a pain then.

When someone joins just to troll. While I do find it humerous, I also find annoying.
They just find a forum, join it, and troll 'till they get banned.

Then there's those that overuse "Kawaii" and "baka". Not a big deal, but it does get slightly annoying when used too much.


Aside from the three listed, there is not really any type of person I particularly dislike.

I have zero tolerance for those people who have zero tolerance for noobs. I have zero tolerance for trolls. I like to see them banned.
I've always believed that If you want attention, go make friends, not trouble.

As for 'Japanophiles' I see no reason to bash or flame them. There are far more annoying folks online than them, and the way they communicate merely expresses that they are very interested in anime and the Japanese language (Seriously it's common as ever so get used to it) Even I enjoy a good anime.

I hate it when people dont take the time to read something and they post before reading.Then I have to said did you read the post apparently not.

Anti
December 15th, 2008, 07:33 PM
Several things.

The first is random personal attacks or whatever you want to call them where people don't really KNOW each other lol. I mean it's one thing to think of somebody negatively, but calling somebody out on it when you really don't know what you're talking about and ripping them to shreds in front of everybody...bothers me a lot.

Then there's (for this forum specifically) people who think that their reputation level matters, especially when people rep***** and go "hey give me positive rep blah blah blah" and "I'll post in your thread in exchange for positive rep woo hoo!!!!" It doesn't even matter and reputation =/= how good a member you are. Rep is kind of like post count; it's kinda cool if it's high (I guess...=/) but it doesn't matter.

Number one is irrationality and it isn't even close. Being from S&M I know that it is ridiculous since it's essentially a debate every time you say something (or it can be, at least...whatever lol). But seriously, making of use of evidence and facts around you isn't that hard and it drives me nuts when people just babble on (usually "knowing" they're right lol) with nothing backing up their claim and dodging questions to make their side look better. But that's life.

Also whoever said not being able to take a hint...I'm right there with you. People don't seem to get that when I'm using "FUNNIE" I'm not asking for a cute little "I agree!" response. People cannot take hints...ever.

I mean despite that not much really bugs me about the forums. Some of the exclusive cliques are annoying, but whatever, it's the internet. Things could be worse.

Mostly, just people who don't understand how forums work overall. That's not to say that I hate new members at all...I'll always help out a new member or something like that and don't look down on them if they don't know how things work here. I'm talking about people who have been here for more than a year and still don't know the rules of particular forums or the community overall. It's a lot of common sense stuff, and yet people still don't get it. It just goes to show that post count and join date and all that stuff don't matter that much....what matters is the person sitting in front of the computer.

Thats not actually that bad, if its just a particular forum.

I've been here nearly..half a year(?), and I barely know the rules of the S&M section, D/P/P and so on.

So unless that person browses all the forums, then it's ok to me.

I hate people who pretend to type fast and get all their words wrong.
I hate people who have no knowledge of grammar, rendering their posts illegible.
I hate people who flame others who are trying to get help.
And I have a strong dislike for people who make threads for others to vent their anger out on anything. It promotes an atmosphere of negativity and hate. Still, though, they're kind of helpful...I tend to ironically enjoy them.


My list of things I hate about forums (which I will regret making later).

It's like you're trying to make yourself smarter by merely denoting the quoted's grammar skills. If it's a joke, it's not funny. It's annoying.

Text speak.

It arose because of the restrictions placed on text messages; in the early days one might have to pay per character, and as time went on one would still have to pay more for extra messages (if one goes over the character limit, one has to send two messages, as it were). However, you're on the Internet. You're not paying per character, word or sentence. You're paying a fixed rate per month, or you're paying per byte of data transmitted, but a few extra letters is hardly going to blow the bank. So type out your words fully, so the rest of us don't have to decipher what you've posted.

l33t/text/chat speak, whatever you want to call it. I hate it.

Also topics like "OmG plez help meh I have teh worst life ever =(" and clearly overexagerate how upset and angry they are.
2 recent ones here in other chat, one topic about some kid getting his ipod nicked and asking for advice... it's just an ipod and it's your fault anyway...
A member on another forum I go too has just had to experience his dad committing suicide, he is only 13 years old and felt no need to post a self pitying topic, he just posted in the AFK section saying he had to go to his dads funeral; no angry 30 paragraph post about how life sucks and how he wants to destroy the world and that it's George Bush's fault.

Another thread that I have just seen "Person A likes Person B, who likes Person C, who likes B back. Person D likes Person C. Persons B and C are dating."

Now the profile dosn't say the age of the thread starter but guaranteed she will be about 12-14, she dosn't know the meaning of love, a boyfriend at that age is just some guy who maybe will buy you a packet of sweets from the corner shop. Then she thinks she is heartbroken and is apparently devastated. Live your life for goodness sake your only that age once...

Another thing; members that flame and are generally horrible but are smart enough to get away with it and border just along the line of being banned. I can think of only a few members like that here but I was once a member on a forum that had about 99% of the members as pure flamers, even one of the co-admins would tell someone who disagreed with him to GTFO and would ban any member who didn't agree with him.

I don't really hate when people Spam, I just simply find it annoying and I report it.

If someone posts an extremely noobish thread, I'll just explain to them what they are doing wrong and answer their stupid question. Maybe un-rep them if they have horrible grammar, like I did a few weeks ago.

If someone posts lewd stuff, save it then report it.

1. People who don't use at least passable spelling and grammar. You don't have to be a scholar but dOnT tYp LyK tHiS or I will have a stroke.

2. Mini mods who jump on people the moment they make a mistake. It discourages new members from posting because god forbid they post the wrong thing, they are going to be harassed for it.


Japanophiles on forums also irritate me a lot D: ^___^ =^.^= and ^0^ should only be used in moderation scarcity. "Kawaii" and "baka" should never be used at all.

I completely agree. No matter how much you love Japanese culture, you can say "kawaii" a million times and you still aren't going to magically turn Japanese so please spare us.

→ People who are incoherent when asking for help. Yeah, I'd love to help you if I could understand what you're trying to say. "What is the green image underneath my postcount?" is a good question. "wats wth the pic in my post?" is NOT.

→ People who insist I'm one of their good forum friends when, in reality, they sent me one PM saying "hi" and submitted a friend request. I accept because it's less effort than rejecting everyone and I don't want to alienate anyone. THAT DOES NOT MAKE US BFFs.

→ People with entitlement issues. No, you don't deserve the right to be a mod. I don't even know you. I've never seen you before today. You can't read the FAQ. Stop asking me. And don't go ask someone else, either; they're going to link you to the same FAQ entry I did if they're even nice enough to do that.

→ On that note, people who can't read the FAQ. Or use the search function. Or take the time to sift through the forum to make sure they aren't making a redundant thread. This is especially annoying when coupled with my first point. Maybe it's because I'm the kind of person who hates looking stupid so I try everything possible to figure it out for myself before asking something but... come on. Those resources are there for a reason.

→ Suck-ups. Yeaaah... I can tell who you are easily. I'm just too nice to call you out on it. Suck-ups aren't all bad though. A fair few have ended up becoming friends of mine down the road but most are just kind of sad.

→ Porn spammers, etc. We don't have this problem like... ever, now that we've restricted images and URLs to those with 15+ posts. But even so, why waste both your time and mine? No I don't enjoy looking at shock images while I go in to delete your posts. Do you enjoy looking at them as you post? Don't you have better things to do in your spare time??

→ Impersonations. Even if they're bad ones. :( Someone signed up here with the name Liqhtninq or something recently. I got SO many PMs from people asking why I was PMing them links to questionable sites. I still get them even though I banned the person within a day. It was months ago.

→ People who aren't all that smart. Yeah, you know that Liqhtninq person who PM'd you? The one with the struckout, plain name? Why are you PMing Lightning with the bold, italic, red name to whine about it months later? Isn't it obvious I'm not that person??

→ People who, upon having their thread closed, go right ahead and make it again with no edits. Or PM me and everyone else on the staff to insist it be opened again. No. Go away.

→ Mini-mods. No, you don't look cool when you scold people. It just bothers my mods and everyone else on staff when they basically have to quote/repeat you in order to close the thread. It doesn't help your chances of being modded, either. If anything, we remember you for being annoying, not knowledgeable. Knowledgeable people report and go on their way instead of cluttering up the thread with what's basically spam.

→ People who think being different and edgy with a hint of troll is cool. No, you don't look cool when you're cutting down members who don't know better or who are stating an opinion. You don't look smarter; you just look like an inconsiderate jerk. (This especially bothers me when the people doing this don't know what they're talking about either. Ugggh.)

→ People who paraphrase (or outright copy from) Wikipedia in their posts to seem smart. Usually it's just irrelevant to the topic and it makes everyone think you're pretentious. They won't read your posts. :'(

→ When someone changes their signature/avatar all the time. It doesn't bug me as much now because I actually haven't had avatars/signatures turned on permanently for a month now but... it's very disorienting. I used to (and probably will again once I turn them back on) associate people with their theme so when it changes often, I get confused. It's double confusing when you couple it with...

→ PEOPLE WHO CHANGE THEIR NAMES EVERY SINGLE CHANCE THEY GET. Augh, no you don't need to change on the exact day that your name change comes. Can't you pick a name and stick to it? (I hate when that one group of like 20 people changes their name at the same time; like half the staff are different and it confuses me so much.)

→ People who use smilies all over the place. I use too many. If you use more than me, they're probably out of place and distracting me from reading your message.

→ Posts that haven't been proofread. I don't mind if there's a typo or two in a long or intelligent post--so long as it doesn't really affect my ability to read it, that's fine. But when you post a one-liner and can't take the time to glance over it for half a second to make sure it, you know, makes sense? I don't like you.

→ Getting PMs from people asking to do something... and then half an hour later getting the same PM... and then 20 minutes later getting a "WHY ARE YOU IGNORING ME" PM... and then finally coming home a few hours later to like 6 PMs from the same person. It's not as bad when I actually am ignoring someone (a rarity) but... when I haven't even been online the whole time? Is it really necessary? If it's so urgent, why aren't you bugging someone who is online?

→ Whoever reads this and doesn't take the hint. >:| I swear to god if any of you PM me with "wats wth the pic in my post?" I'll smack you. XD

→ LOSERS WHO SPEND THEIR LUNCH BREAK TYPING UP A POST ABOUT WHO/WHAT ANNOYS THEM ON FORUMS. Dear god, I probably could've found something better to do. I suck.

Jack O'Neill
December 17th, 2008, 12:32 PM
→ Japanophobes. Just because some people are quite vocal (oftentimes annoyingly so) in expressing their adoration for Japanese culture doesn't give you an excuse to be a racist ****.

→ Staff members who don't do their jobs at all, even when prompted. There was a reason why you were assigned that duty to begin with. If you can't or won't carry it out, then resign; don't let it get to the point where your superiors are forced to dishonorably discharge you due to dereliction of duty.

→ Staff members who punish the innocent and let the guilty go free. So what if there's a spam infestation or a troll running loose in the forum you're assigned to? There's this one member who's done nothing wrong whose views you disagree with or you just don't like, and he/she must be dealt with no matter the cost, even if it means letting the spammers and trolls go free to terrorize the populace.

Some of the reasons posted here are scaring me for some reason.
But to be frank the so called "n00bs" should be given some respect. Were you not one when you first got on the scary place called the Internet. Were you not as clueless as to how the hodge-podge melting pot of culture in the Internet works. Of course you would want to get some attention and stand out yet find acquaintances, therefore using such stereotypical "text speak" that we hear so much in Media culture? I remember the time I was playing Ragnarok Online back in 2004 and some 2nd Jober's were looking down upon Novice classes and I thought to myself, were you not one yourself?

Anyways I just don't like it when people assume things of other people based on certain prejudices on the Internet and cannot give them respect and appreciation for there contribution to the community. Remember the person posting is a real person behind that avatar.

"Japanophiles" is such a derogatory term. Isn't a majority of people here a fan of Japanese anime/manga/videogames? Don't we come to forums such as these to express our love to our particular fandoms and interact with people who share our likes? (Particularly Pocket Monsters. Remember how much mainstream culture has looked down on our niche as a "fad" until recently due to it's relative rise in Popularity with the younger generation) Isn't it hypocritical as such when we bash people for such simple things? =/

I do apologize if I hurt anyones feelings. No offense ^_^

1. Weeabos. Everything about them pisses me off. Especially the ones who add the word "Desu" to everything they say. Seriously, what the hell does that even mean?

2. People who abuse smilies. I use them myself, but it gets pretty aggravating when it starts to become so frequent that it actually interferes with your ability to understand what the person is actually trying to say.

3. Suck-ups. People who try and befriend mods on forums for their own benefit, while making it blatantly obvious what they're trying to do. I see this happen alot on here.

4. People, specifically staff, who let mod-powers get to their heads. Seriously bro, having a colored username on an effing pokemon forum does not make you the coolest person in the entire world. Don't let it go to your head.

5. People who obsess over crappy pop-punk bands such as green day, and feel the need to make it known to everyone else, to the point where their obsession actually begins to interfere with every single effing post that make.

6. Self-proclaimed emo kids. Pretty self-explanatory.

Some of the reasons posted here are scaring me for some reason.
But to be frank the so called "n00bs" should be given some respect. Were you not one when you first got on the scary place called the Internet. Were you not as clueless as to how the hodge-podge melting pot of culture in the Internet works. Of course you would want to get some attention and stand out yet find acquaintances therefore using such stereotypical "text speak" that we hear so much in Media culture? I remember the time I was playing Ragnarok Online back in 2004 and some 2nd Jober's were looking down upon Novice classes and I thought to myself were you not one yourself?

Anyways I just don't like it when people assume things of other people based on certain prejudices on the Internet and cannot give them respect and appreciation for there contribution to the community. Remember the person posting is a real person behind that avatar.

"Japanophiles" is such a derogatory term. Isn't a majority of people here a fan of Japanese anime/manga/videogames? Don't we come to forums such as these to express our love to our particular fandoms and interact with people who share our likes? (Particularly Pocket Monsters. Remember how much mainstream culture has looked down on our niche as a "fad" until recently due to it's relative rise in Popularity with the younger generation) Isn't it hypocritical as such when we bash people for such simple things? =/

I do apologize if I hurt anyones feelings. No offense ^_^
There's a difference between noobs and newbies but most people don't bother differentiating. (I know I don't.) The noobs everyone whines about are the ones who simply don't learn. :/ Instead of taking some initiative and looking up the answer to their simple question--which is quite often in a FAQ or a sticky or easily accessible--they simply create a thread or bother someone else to bring the answer right to them. That lack of effort and utter laziness is what bothers me, at least. There are plenty of people who start out like this and then improve but... there are more people who still feel entitled to post ridiculous questions when the answer would be found so, so much faster with a mere google search or something. 8|

And as for the Japanophile thing... I think most people are talking about the ones who insert completely broken Japanese in every other sentence. It can be tedious to read sentences like "today watashi-chan went to the store to buy some pocky with my tomodachi and later we came home (okaeri nasaaaai!) to play with my kawaii neko-chan!" It's fine to admire work that comes out of Japan but... it's really, really annoying to see people type like that. o_O; And I've seen it a lot. Not to mention I've seen a lot in real life (anime conventions can be SO annoying if you end up with the wrong people) who literally FAWN over Japanese people and it's so creepy. ;_; I guess that doesn't necessarily relate to forums though, haha. I've no problem with the majority of fans of... anything Japanese. It's just that really, really annoying minority that tends to give everyone a bad name.

edit: lmao oh jeez what a stupid 16k post. 8|

Especially the ones who add the word "Desu" to everything they say. Seriously, what the hell does that even mean?

It's the verb "to be", so as you can imagine it's pretty common in the Japanese language.

On the subject of supposed Japanophiles in the anime forum, a lot of it is simply referring to characters by their Japanese names, for the purposes of differentiating them from the dub names. Common convention and all tha'. But I agree with those who have gripes with people using broken Japanese at every possible opportunity - I don't particularly want to read "watashi wa kawaii desu" every few minutes, thank you very much. =/

As far as I can tell there's actually a similar trend amongst some Japanese people, in that they use English words every now and again because they think it's cool. xD

But of course, going onto a Japanese-only forum and speaking only in English wouldn't go down well, in the same way that people coming onto a forum such as this and posting only in, say, Spanish, is an annoyance to us.

Japanophiles on forums also irritate me a lot D: ^___^ =^.^= and ^0^ should only be used in moderation scarcity. "Kawaii" and "baka" should never be used at all.Ever realize that this is sometimes done with other langauges? Although not on a forum, my sister likes to blurt out random Spanish words sometimes and she's 27.

What I hate is the sheer amount of complainers in the Pokemon anime discussion. All they do is complain. OMG ASH IZ SO STOOOPID or IM SIK OV TEAM ROKIT! Rarely is there an intellegent thread.
SPPf's anime forum is a model of what threads should be appearing in ours.

people with "chan" in their username. Less annoying is "san" which I actually have put in one or two of my usernames in places on the internet but for some reason, "chan" boils my blood.

Weeaboos who are like "JAPAN IS SOOO BETTERU!" when they think Japan is an anime paradise full of school girls, ninjas and onigiri (although there is a lot of onigiri in Japan I must admit)

When people TOTALLY ignore your post. A step worse is when they ignore the post and someone posts the same thing and they act as if the person who posted after you was the first person to say that. When I see that, I feel like my existance in this world is pointless.

Rap vs rock threads where rock fans mindlessly bash rap and stuff like pop when they too are usually victims of listening to crap.

Anime fans who claim to be smart in anime yet only know the mainstream anime like Bleach, Inuyasha, Pokemon, Naruto, DB and all it's sequals. (got some advice for ya, if you want to become more educated, go to 4chan and frequent the anime board there. I learned sooo much anime from being there)

2. Mini mods who jump on people the moment they make a mistake. It discourages new members from posting because god forbid they post the wrong thing, they are going to be harassed for it.Bingo.

Mini-moderators - those who take it upon themselves to do our job 'n' completely ignore staff existence. That is, by far, the one thing that drives me off the wall. There's a report button, use it. I can understand some want to merely help out, but really, you're not. :|

3 things, and 3 things only:

Spam - I UTTERLY hate it when people join just to go around the forum to spam for no reason, and because they think it's fun. It really annoys me to see that, especially if it's a thread that a like a lot.

Advertising - Yea, I don't mind if people advertise their forum in their signature. No, that doesn't bother me at all, but wht really ticks me off, if someone just joined just to goto other people's profiles just to ask them to join. I don't care if it was a friend of mine on here, who I've befriended for a while, but if it's someone who just joined, it really gets on my nerves.

Threads - Not just any threads, but END OF THE WORLD threads. Everytime I see those, I get pissed. The hear a stupid superstition that won't even happen until WE are all 6 feet under. It really makes me angry.

I get bothered when people use memes way too often. I swear, if I see "so i herd u liek mudkipz," one more time, I will snap. That has got to be one of the oldest, most overused, and irritating memes. I can't stand it.

I'm not sure if anything else annoys me though. I think that's the only thing that really gets under my skin.

1. Bad writers who have not read the rules of the PFF&P section. Okay, yeah, I frequent that section, so of course this is going to bother me. When people post literal crap that is barely a paragraph, script format, etc. it just really grinds my gears. I mean, shouldn't it be common sense not to post half a paragraph and call it "a chapter"? I'm sure most of us have read a book in life, so we should all know that a chapter is longer. (of course there are probably some books out there that might have that short of a chapter, but for the most part, chapters are much longer)

2. Reviewers that should follow their own advice. I have seen people post a story, get a lot of constructive criticism, and then go off and give almost the same stuff to another person's story. Umm...hello? You're not setting a good example if even you can't follow that, so do you really expect other writiers to? No, you shouldn't.

3. Mini-modding. UGH. Just...no. No. Don't do it. We have a huge staff here, so you are not necessary. There's a report button, like Ryan said, so use it.

That's all I can think of for now.

It appears I have another complaint now, oh goody!
I'm now in red rep, why? Because someone with a high post count dosn't agree with my post, fair enough they're entitled to their opinion; now I'm at very poor reputation merely because of that, I could post 5,000 times with only 'lol' repeated over and over again and that gives me power to take away a fair bit of anybodys rep. Good rep is apparently rarely handed out, even Beachboy only has 2 green blocks and most normal members have 1 green block so reputation wise Beachboy is only 1 block better than the next '5 post person' that comes along. Lightning has only 3 green blocks after 16,000 + posts. No wonder I see that so many people are turning off their reputation.

On the mini mod subject, I didn't even know what a mini mod was before I joined this forum (Yes I should've read the rules, my bad) but I post something explaining why their thread will be closed and suddenly I'm one of these annoying mini mods that are a pain and an inconvenience; another forum I'm part of actively encourages this 'mini-modding' and encourages members explaining the rules and stating why threads will be closed to save the mod from doing it. I understand that it must be annoying in many ways but the way it is portayed here it seems like the plague and destruction of all forums.

Another thread that I have just seen "Person A likes Person B, who likes Person C, who likes B back. Person D likes Person C. Persons B and C are dating."

Now the profile dosn't say the age of the thread starter but guaranteed she will be about 12-14, she dosn't know the meaning of love, a boyfriend at that age is just some guy who maybe will buy you a packet of sweets from the corner shop. Then she thinks she is heartbroken and is apparently devastated. Live your life for goodness sake your only that age once...


Mmm. I will admit, I have probably gone to a good bit of friends on the internet with something of that like (not that love square), but the heartbroken thing. I can understand if someone is about 15+ and they had a long relationship, and obviously cared for each other, and caring meaning they did a lot of special things for that person, but something as little as that? Seriously. I have seen a few of these threads before, and let me tell you, it's just...ugh. If you have that kind of problem, believe me, talk to your best friend about it. Whether it's your real life best friend, or internet best friend, talk to someone else, not the entire forum.

Vendak, about the rep system, I personally don't understand why you have a low rep. I think that's disgraceful because you're making a lot of sense in this thread. The people who diapproved probably are the ones whose actions you find annoying.

Anyway, another thing on the rep system, I'm only repping people who I feel deserve it. I don't really care if I get repped back or not. Sure, it'd be nice, but I don't really care. I just want people to know whether or not I agree with what they say. Rep*****s, on the other hand, are probably just repping for the stupidest things. Yes, Will, I'm talking to you.

December 19th, 2008, 08:55 PM
several things, trolls for one, they purposefully create trouble, and the more feedback they get, the more they do, I see no point to their actions.
Next thing, people who abuse the reputation system, it is designed to measure how well liked the person is and how much positive or negative feedback they have, not a contest or a way to discredit someone(as seen in this thread above), I don't disagree with the system itself, but only with its improper use.
Mini modding and people who make false accusations of it, let me explain, whenever someone starts trying to exert authority they don't have, is mini modding, however recommendations, rule related advice, or reporting is not, I think most people who accuse others of mini modding can't tell the difference betweent hat and contributing to the community.
That's about it for forum specifics^^

Ugh.
BEING STAFF DOES NOT MAKE YOU SPECIAL. So stop sucking up.

Another thing I hate is people putting other people down. And it's always noobs doing it, too.
I remember someone who opened an art thread in the Art Gallery, they hadn't been drawing for very long and they were young anyway. I think like 4 noobs posted, every one saying "srry dude but..........! u suck..........." or something like that, then me and another person came in and helped the thread-starter feel better. :| That made me SO mad... there's a thing called constructive criticism.

That's so annoying. =\ Just looking at post that put people down is just wrong to me, too. Well, really, it's not ALWAYS the no0bs, it's people who post thier 'point of view' in a way that puts people down and don't really give a good review what-so-ever. (Ehh, I'm not great at explaining things. ^^;; )

Oh. and people who have their name at the end of their post, we have user names and signatures for that okay? ¬_¬

This might turn into a rant. xD You've been warned..

What tends to bug me (mainly), are trolls, n00bs (different than newbies), elitests, and people who purposely try to get the staff angry, simply because they are staff. It's like.. seriously? What the heck? Don't complain about the staff, or try to piss them off, just because you resent the fact that they have power over you.
= =;

Another thing that bugs me, is when people ask stupid questions, and make a new thread around that stupid question. Normally, I say there is no such thing, all questions are fine.. but they ARE such things as stupid questions.

Such as.. (this goes along with 'n00bs' I bet) someone making a thread on this Pokemon forum, in a Pokemon-related section of the forum, and asking if anyone here likes Pokemon.

2) people who suck up to staff just because they're staff. and it's so painfully obvious too. people, you may think you're being subtle but everyone including the staff members themselves, can most likely see through it.

3) staff members that let it go to their heads that they are on the staff. it's sad :( no, you're not any better than us just because our names aren't colored.

I hate people like myself, who over use commas, overuse smilies, type in a small font, and believe that vocabulary and sarcasm will get them places. :/

I dislike people who suck up to authority. A lot. For example, people who will only quote a staff member or always agree with them bother me. Although a staff member usually has a valid point for many topics, some members don't bother to read another member's, but go straight to the moderator instead to quote them on it or rep them. I used to do it as a new member on my first joined forum and I hate myself for it. D:

Exactly. People that think "If I suck up to a staff member they'll like me and I'll be respected by all the newbies!" Well.... it doesn't work that way.

People that bash other people for putting in their thoughts and opinions annoys me to no extent. One other thing that annoys me? When people talk behind our peoples backs. That makes me want to... rip them in half.

I hate when members feel the need to "take on the man and rebel against the staff." If you don't like the rules of a certain forum, just go away. It's just a site and I'm sure you can find another that conforms to what you want more. Otherwise you're just causing more problems than needed and you are more than likely just a drama king/queen starving for attention.

I also hate when members leave and come back, saying they've changed, but continue to cause problems for everyone.

I hate when people abuse things like reputation, which are supposed to be fun. Instead, they use it to cause headaches for everyone and diminish the fun factor. They decide to use it as a sort of "revenge tactic."

I hate when staff feel to leak stuff that should only remain within the staff. There are just certain things that everyone doesn't need to know.

I think this thread should have some positive stuff so:

I love when people start decent, thought provoking conversations that don't devolve into flame wars.

I love when people post awesome art, stories, teams, and other threads that are overall positive and well thought out.

I love meeting new people who share similar interests and forming firm friendships.

I'm actually not the one who rep'd you, I don't really think that giving someone bad reputation will change how someone acts. Sorry if I sounded nasty, but sending friend requests to random people really puts them off, at least try and start a freindly conversation first, okay?

I'm pretty easy going and I find few things that I hate.

Trolls and spam is an obvious one.

Compulsive lying, especially if its combinated with idiocy is another.

People who use bad language, spell horribly or overuse "Leetspeak". Use of a different language (say Japanese) on a forum without a good reason annoys me to a lesser degree.

And lastly those who don't have a shred of respect for others.

Like most here, text messaging is very annoying. I can understand people with dyslexia or who are from another country. But there's really no excuse, since there are spell checkers for a reason
People who go on and ON about an argument. I'm not afraid of conflicts, but it drives me insane when someone can't think from another POV and just dwell on about how wrong you are and how right they are (unless of course, they actually are right)
People who input various unneeded Japanese words into every single post. What's the deal with that? I once came across someone who said "I don't really care for american seiyuu voice actors." - which means NOTHING. SEIYUU = voice actor from Japan. So it's an... American, yet Japanese double voice actor? I could name at least a hundred more examples, but just thinking about it gives me headaches
Overusing smileys. This one should speak for itself. It's retarded and looks retarded
Stereotyping members. I have so many times come across people on boards who stereotype you because of where you are from. I have had people say "How do you know English!?", or expecting their religious or moral views that are normal in THEIR country also being normal in every other country around the world

God, even typing it out myself, I'm getting angry.
Another thing is overuse of smilies. I'm at risk of sounding hypocritical here, but I really don't like it when people use more than one or two smilies in their posts, especially if the post's short.
For example; "lol, I love pokemon too! ^^ But I don't like pikachu. <_<; He's kind of annoying. >_< Ash should have a different pokemon following him around, imo. XDD"

That really ticks me off. It's excusable once or twice, but if someone does that in every post, I'm not going to be able to talk to them without getting angry.
One last thing, posting in another language. It's always Japanese. Always. It wouldn't be so bad if people were obsessive over other languages, but for some reason, it's Japanese. The main offender "OMG that's so kawaii~" makes me rage, and I know it annoys a lot of english-speaking Japanese people too. You shouldn't mix the languages like that, it's ridiculous.
Bluh, I think I'm done now. Hah, looking back at my own post makes me rage. Yayness.

People who think that just because they have a paragraph of words and a good vocabulary they're the smartest people on the internet. Especially when they have no clue on what's going on and they're just in there to sound important. It urks me a lot.

Japanophiles on forums also irritate me a lot D: ^___^ =^.^= and ^0^ should only be used in moderation scarcity. "Kawaii" and "baka" should never be used at all.

You put it perfectly.....

i just hate those people who type out those long paragraphs just because the think they are smarter than everyone else..

the Japanophiles urk me for reasons i wont go into...

and lastly i just despise the people who post like 5 year olds....

" XDDDDDDD1111111111111" i mean is that necessary?

I hate myself when I reply in a thread thinking its a general topic then realize it was in the manga section, or when I post my updates for the R/S/E Monospecies challenge in the R/S/E Monotype challenge.(Only happened once- but still!)
T_T It always makes me feel stoopid

I hate it when staffers post things, pretending like it's not directed at the post above theirs, when it is. Especially when it's negatively oriented and uninformed.

I
hate
WEABOOS.
You DO NOT LIVE IN JAPAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, STOP COMPULSIVELY USING THE WORD KAWAII GODDAMIT.
I really hate people who obsess over something religously.

Anyway. I hate people who try to be unique by changing their post font. It's not cool, don't do it.
AND TYPE OUT YOUR WORDS GOSH DARNIT.

I really hate members who try to act like the tech geniuses they can only dream of.
And to top it off, I hate members who can't take another point of view. Seriously, I called the emblem system a pointless novelty and I was de-repped in a flash. Oh well. I never cared for rep anyway.

Just a chance to let off some steam.

Just the thing i was looking for. I have my own forum site myself.

I have 2 things i hate.

1- People join, but never post
2- People post things in the wrong sections!

I particularly hate number 2 above. Seriously, half of it is common sense.

I agree with Zericon; when people join but do not have any intention to come back!
It just makes the forum look sloppy, in my eyes D:

Idiot!

I hate it when:

people make up a long chain of letters to exaggerate their point.

someone link to another unrelated site with the phrase "please (insert verb here)"

someone quoted someone else and say "I agree" only. Nothing else to say? Then don't do that.

someone starts a new paragraph without pressing enter twice.

To be honest, I hate people who have a terrible use of grammar.
By terrible, I mean posts that requires me to reread it more than once.
