    Uhh, Did I come off as a jerk to you guys at first?

    Post by JoeBroski09 on Thu Nov 01, 2012 1:14 am

    I just joined a new forum for a new video game called Don't Starve, and I got about 50 posts today, the first day I joined, and it's a fairly small community, and they're all pissy about it. Well, one person in particular.

    Did I come off as really rude and obnoxious or anything like that when I first joined? I know I was a Forum Noob when I first started, had no idea what to do, and would even derail just for fun every once in a while

    but I haven't derailed, I've made legitimate conversation posts in this new thread, and some people just don't like it. Whatupwitdat?

    Not that I know of, could you toss me a link so I could see?

    Sometimes forums just don't take kindly to new members.

    I know the whole Forum Cutie was crossing a line, but I was no where near that.. I think D:

    Also, you remember Xacktastic. He suggested this forum to me, so I thought they would actually know of me before I joined, and they didn't. I didn't say "hey, I'm Zack's best friend. You know, Joe!'

    I introduced myself as Joe, then said I am also Zack's good buddy.

    I also stole your idea of an Introduction thread and made my own. I don't know how they took a new member straight out of the blue making a thread that's fairly "important."

    Creating an Introduction Thread?

    You copy cat, I was the one who invented introduction threads back when the first forum was created in (Year to be added at a later date after I google this)!

    Perhaps you come off a bit strong, too happy and nice? That thread you linked me to was a screwing around thread so I imagine they were just kidding around with you.

    Ahh. Xack also said that it's cause im competitive about it. Or, was. For one post. They won't kick me out. I think. I was just really excited. I'll calm down from here on out.

    You should check out the game. It's called Don't Starve, and its on Chrome, and will soon go to steam. If you buy it now, you get 2 copies as well.

    You're talking off topic non sense Joe. You should first build up your reputation by helping people or make threads about the game and then talk off topic once in a while. But if they see you are a newbie in an off topic section talking too much they may think you just talk too much. Also do they use their real life names in the forum? Maybe they don't like that cause it's a bit personal and can get things personal in my opinion. Maybe seeing you using real life names gives them the image of a guy that wants to be too cool or whatever. Hope you understand me since I decreased my posting my english has gotten worse lol.

    Thanks. Having a real life friend probably just didn't help. =/ i already posted in some game related threads, and made my own thread. But oh well. It's all downhill from here. It's just one person anyway, and people see it and wonder why she's mad at me.

    I shouldn't worry your head about it. This forum is the first I had ever joined and I hadn't a clue as to what was the correct forum etiquette or what was expected of me as a member, so I just read posts for a while to get a 'feel' for it if you see what I mean. I reckon I got lucky because it was obvious that the people on here are a very decent lot and on the whole very welcoming to newbies. The moderators are also 'on the ball' and very fair, I think, when it comes to locking threads if things start getting out of hand.

    I think it's suffice to say that the internet is full of assholes and you're not always gonna join a good community like we have here Shrug

    I was about to say something very similar to this. I agree completely.

    People get anonymity muscles and say crappy things a lot too. Might not have anything to do with you personally

    You never came off as a jerk to me, but I don't really think anyone on this forum comes off as a jerk. I think it's like serious said, we have a good, friendly community here which isn't the standard for the rest of the internet

    Yeah. Right. silly hahaha!

    Anyway, they just posted new rules now that I'm in the forum.. I don't know if it's a reaction of my arrival, a reaction to the user's distaste towards me, or if it was just a coincidence. Anywho, my posts in the forum went from 70 something to 27, because Off-Topic posts don't count now. What a rip-off! D: Reps in off topic don't count here, but at least posts do!
