heh, I was on the verge of leaving some 2 months ago due to the increadable boredom on the forums...
oh well, maybe the forums will lighten up a bit now that the supreme dictator has taken some time off... ;)

JP(NL)heh, I was on the verge of leaving some 2 months ago due to the increadable boredom on the forums... oh well, maybe the forums will lighten up a bit now that the supreme dictator has taken some time off... ;)
I didn't know that I was ... oh wait.
I hate to come here sounding like the Big and Uber Angry Ass, Closer of Threads and Banner of Members, which my job sometimes requires me to be, but if you don't like what's being posted around the forums, you have three options: You can either go into a chronic state of ranting over the subject, you can leave the forums under protest or you can simply make a new thread of your own... Personally, I prefere the third option; it's just so much more funfunfun ;)

'Dreadnought[DK']...you can simply make a new thread of your own...
Hmm... what do you think this is?
Anyways, I'm not making this to sound like we HAVE to stop with the War threads, but I'm simply saying there's just too much of it. It's really hard to think of something to talk about around here. Even if it IS a bit humorous, there always has to be that one serious person or that one person who wants to continuously go off-topic who comes and ruins it all for everyone.
I have tried making threads in the past in different forums but they don't last past a few pages or they're posted in so much they have to be put in the Spam forum. I only posted this topic up for two reasons:
1) I was exteamly bored. Everyone on my buddy list was away and it was too late at night to go anywhere.
2) I came here to look for something interesting to talk about and I thought.. "hey, this place is REALLY boring, so I'm going to let everyone know that it is REALLY boring."
Now that I have made this topic... it seems as if others are agreeing/disagreeing with me, which I am very pleased to see. I think I've succeded in making a semi-interesting topic. Go me.
i agree with you covin. when i first came here, i used to read through every topic in the pub. now i find myself skipping over a lot of the topics. and it is partly the iraq/bush/terrorism topics that are making it boring, in my opinion...
Indeed i couldn't agree more. Moderating this forum has been so dull, i find myself skipping entire pages of responses in some threads because it's the same old shit.
When I first started on GF, I decided that the Pub was basically what I was looking for in a forum and I stuck to it, and I still do. But the recent months have just been awful. I understand that the war in Iraq is a current topic and that Nick Berg's execution was horrifying, but how many threads do we need about it?
Mr. MattHe11_Heaven made a comment somewhere about me not posting huge posts anymore. Why? I'd just be repeating myself over and over and over.
I didn't make it!
I tied the Melee and the Pub right into eachother. I am not trying to get myself in trouble here, but I think we should bring the Melee back on several conditions. 1. No flaming other cultures. I know I saw a lot of American flaming, some Canadian flaming, and European flaming. I think that was one reason AzH took the Melee away from us. 2. Don't take what other people say seriously. It is a freaking place to make fun of eachother for crying out loud! You cannot expect no one to say anything about you. That is what the place is for. 3. Don't make personal threads. I made one about Octovon one time because he said something like America deserves to be nuked. I was in the wrong. Thread should have been closed. Instead of deleting the Melee, which is what happened, I think we should have made more rules. Not too many rules to the point where the forum is functionless, but enough so we avoid problems that arose when it was around. I am sorry if you guys do not want me to bring up bringing back the Melee, but that place really lightened this place up. It was a place to go to get fustration off your chest. It was made to be silly. Most people had fun there. Rarely anyone took it TOO seriously.
