Fact. They were truly Alive, with interesting Comments to my left and Right.
I Have analyzed these forums now and have Assessed the Situation as Several Problems.
1. Reporting the Noobs
What is it with people obsessions for posting about this?
OK, so you’ve found a Padder.
OK, so you’ve got him doing it.
OK so you need to know where to Report him.
Did you think for a Moment that no body really cares?
Did you think for a Moment that there is a Big Search button?
But that’s what happens, people post about these people and let the posts gather up, whilst they hope they get some Inner Spirit, AKA karma.
But the karma just sits still like Moss on a Rock,
Because No one Cares
Report him, Good on You. But don’t go on about it.
Somewhere in the Bible is a Little thing mentioning that Good Deeds are rewarded in Heaven, but only if you are Humble.
So Come on Guys, Be Humble. Do the Right thing, but don’t go on about it to get More Karma.
2. Posting In the Right Section
There was a Time where I visited every Section, and found Something interesting.
It slowly went downhill, and Now, the only sections used are Chatter, the “Topic du Jour” section, Tech and the Not Bf2 or Bf2S section.
Now I Know what Your thinking right Now, its “Why is He Going on about Posting in the Right Section, when he isn’t posting this in the Appropriate Section? Fact is, if I don’t post here, noone will read it. And that’s just a Use. But we need to stop this, It’s just a Matter of Posting in the right section from now on. So, who will support me on my Quest to get people to post in the right section. If you’ve got an Idea for bf2, post it in the Improvements section. Simple.
And start looking at all the Sections guys, if we ignore it, the problem will just get worse. A little effort goes a long way, so lets put in some effort to get people posting in the right section.
Here I am, reading a interesting thread. The first 2-3 posts are good, lengthy posts, and I am interested. Suddenly, the next post is some forum newb posting “STFU noob”. Suddenly, the next 7-8 posts are just people quoting the newb, or people quoting the people that quoted the newb. Then, what was an interesting thread turns into a thread that gets out of hand, and it is closed by a Mod. Get my Point?
That’s an example of a Good thread gone wrong. In My threads, I try to post at least 2-3 lines, not just “nice stuff, +1 kthxbye”.
I want you, the good members of bf2s.com to do similar. Make it interesting, give your full opinion. Talk about the good, and in a civilized manner, talk about the bad. I’m not saying we should turn this into a Posh British Dinner Party conversation, cause that’s not what a forum is about. Just have a bit more respect for the person, and not just OMFG STFU N00b Neg Karma 4 j00!!11one!
4. The Stickies
Stickies. So Important, yet so Unrecognized by the Community.
These things are things we should all pay attention to, yet we don’t.
Why, just yesterday I saw a thread about typing Jalalabad with your elbows get more posts in 1 day than 3 Stickies have gotten in a Week. WTF?
Pay attention to these things, they are Important to this Community.
5. Abusing the Karma System
This truly has Gotten out of Control. It went from a nifty little idea to recognize good members and Good posts, to an alternative to calling the person a “noob”.
If they have made a Good Post , then reward them for their actions.
If They have made a stupid unintelligent post, then I believe you have the Right to Negative Karma Them.
NOT if you don’t agree with your opinion.
Anyone asking for karma in their Sig's shouldn’t receive any. In fact their Sig should be removed. Cause that is not what the Karma System is about.
Also, having the Balls to leave your name in a Negative karma which has some meaning gives me more respect for you than a single piece of Positive karma ever would.
6. Making Useless Posts
Ever since the dawn of forums, there has been useless posts.
They get attention, but have no real meaning.
They are stupid, annoying and they remove all the good things.
I believe it is because the Useless posts once were small in numbers.
I believe it is because many good members have left, and have been replaced with cretins. Want me to Name a Few? Beeng, =Robin Hood=, tthf? Get my Point?
They may have had their stupidity's, but they weren’t useless.
That’s why I am being pulled to KtotheIMMY.com, cause it’s all the members of bf2s minus the Cretins.
Cmon, make your post count to Something. Make me laugh, Make me Think. Don’t waste my Time.
Regardless of these Things, there are Still members that Make it Shine.
I have to shout out to Chuy and the Mods, Ty, Beano, cougar, ninja and so Many More.
This Has Been My Analysis,
Thanks for Reading,
P.S. There may be Something to Lift the Spirits pf the Forums in a Week or So, but thats all I'm Saying.
