Dear Eden and SG:
The thread got closed before I could read all your cool posts in it, but I would just like to say in respose to your posts: I love you. A lot. :3
Now, if I may offer my suggestion, I think we should bring back everyone’s post count to 0, delete any of the unused accounts at a certain date, and revamp the mods (again) so that for the most part, the rules will be enforced in a timely manner. (Especially the spamming one.)
…But that’s just what I think, I’m just a lowly n00b with under 2000 posts. >>;
BUT, on that note, I would also like to offer this thought: I think one reason that this forum has become “unfun,” as it were, is because so many of us have lost the love. For reals dude. It seems like everyone is just bickering all the time, all, “I hate you,” “I WANT you to leave RIGHT NOW!!” “STUPID N00B!!” “C4mp1ng f4gg07” etc.
I think a LOT of us (myself included) need to get into some PM or AIM or MSN or WHATEVER conversations, talk things out with anyone and EVERYONE we’re having “h8 problems” with, and like, try to be at least neutral so we don’t get so worked up every time somebody posts. Because at this rate, RPGC’s downfall won’t be insufficient funds, or shitty shrines (not that they are >>); it’ll be the elitist, cruel-hearted community. And to be truly honest with you guys, it’s the COMMUNITY that keeps me at RPGC. I don’t read the shrines much anymore, I haven’t read fanfiction in ages, and Macc has disappeared off the face of the planet, so I’ve found other webcomics to read (maybe Online Life should be next on my list >>;). But I’ve made more lifelong friends here than I would’ve ever imagined having in my “real” life, and I like talking to all the diverse people we have here.
This place has really helped me to grow, to expand my thinking, and just BE a better PERSON. And I KNOW I’m not the only one, and I KNOW I’m not the only one who is saddened to see our community deteriorate like this. It’s really depressing, if you think about it. I mean fuck, if things keep going like this, who am I supposed to invite to my great wedding that wouldn’t have been possible without RPGC? (Not that it’s been discussed or anywhere near being planned at this point, don’t start jumpin’ out your shoes now. I’m just sayin’. :P)
So like, I dunno. Just think about what I said. If all ya’ll don’t mind, it’s noon and I haven’t showered yet, so I’ma go do that. I hope to see GOOD THINGS come out of this place when I come back!!
