    I'd just like to say...

    Post by Hart on Wed Jul 31, 2013 11:26 am

    This forum is great!

    I just wanted to say this place is fantastic! It seems that a portion of the populace is feeling a little disappointed with the 'tone' coming on lately, to such an extent that a few have left.
    While I can totally understand these feelings with some of the silly (ever so silly) arguments that happen from time to time it doesn't stop this being one of my favorite sites to visit.
    And I swear by the power of grayskull its faster to log into the chat here, ask a question and wait for an answer than it is to freaking GOOGLE the answer and just read the blurb on the results page lol.

    So while its slowing down for the USA's summer, and even with some of the shennanigans we have happen here I still enjoy jumping online and reading everyones new ideas and topics, talking **** in the chatbox or discussing gameplay in a thread.

    I don't quite understand the negativity towards the forum.Maybe I haven't seen them but there has been no fighting in front of me really,people have done as the moderators asked and expressed themselves in a civil fashion.There are one or two non-positive threads in off-topic but they aren't flame filled hate threads,just people venting without being rude.

    I've seen other forums where the admins do not care and the moderators are lazy as hell.Not here,I think they do a pretty good job and so this is the only forum I post on regularly.I like this forum.

    This forum is solid and enjoyable.  The only one I post on more currently is civfanatics, but that's because I've played civilization IV for so many years and am trying to get back into V now that it kind of works.

    This game draws a certain kind of gamer and the resulting community is enjoyable.

    I can sort of understand, but I, as of now, just avoid the things I do not enjoy.

    Since I've moved away from the game, I no spend my time trying to help to the best of my abilities and staying around in order to chat with the people I enjoy chatting with.

    Kev: pretty much. The standards of the forum hasn't dropped, so the worry is puzzling. I guess it's just the burn out and the fact there isn't really anything new left to talk about. The way the community is though, people just keep coming back, and covering things more than once seems impossible to avoid.

    Well if you provide some examples as to where the quality is unacceptable it would be very helpful to us happy

    I have to Fex in the past and she said she'll keep an eye out for it, so I have to hope that she will.

    In regards to the tone shift, it is probably due to time.  Over time many of us have gotten more bitter dealing with the things we don't like.  As people might remember, back in the day even when people insulted me I was fairly civil and friendly about it.  But over time the harassment, insults, condescension, ignorance, it's been getting to me and I just can't keep myself as friendly as I used to be.  I'm sorry for that, I'm trying to again be neutral and civil in all matters but it's just so hard to get into that mindset when you feel so much negativity.

    No comment cause you already know silly

    And Tolvo, I 1 million % agree with you. I think it's because we are both in the top 3 oldest in the forum and we were raised ALOT differently then others.
    People demand respect but don't give it. You try to joke around but they take offense to wut you say.
    To me, a forum is a place to go so you can get away from the stress and BS of everyday life. A place to meet new people, hang out and chat with. A place where some people will listen to you and you listen to them etc.
    But, it doesn't happen cause there are too many bitter people who would rather mouth off then have a descent convo or discussion.

    I can probably say with almost complete certainty that we don't know everything, otherwise when you all go cryptic on us we would know what you were on about silly
