    Where has all the fun gone?

    Post by SlakeMoth on Mon Apr 23, 2012 1:32 pm

    When I first joined the wiki (the old black & white version) I can remember reading posts that had me helpless with laughter. Most of them were obviously from youngsters to judge by the writing style. The grammar and spelling wasn't always correct but that didn't matter one jot because their posts were so expressive and immediate and, as I've said, so funny. I can't write like that, I'm too old and set in my ways. Wherever and whoever you are, please come back. I miss you.

    I can't relate to this too well myself, but I can say that there are too many post complaining about DLC.... get over it already people. The game shouldn't become less exciting just because there was a mention about new areas. I would probably be a little upset, but I would get over it quickly, because I think the game is fine the way it is. (except for those few bugs that need fixed)

    Well I have hopefully comeback and will stay, I'm not young but I've always tried to add wit into my posts when possible. I think you may be refering to Carphil?

    You are 23 last I checked that is not old

    As for Slake moth's question- funny comes and goes on the forum but if you know where to look you can find funny (try the brony thread reaper usually has funny memes lying around).

    I think that over time the forum took on a life of its own and has naturally matured into a well informed adult instead of the kid with a blindfold on that it used to be. People on here are still cool though, even if slightly less ridiculous happy

    totally agree, in the begining there were so many trolls i almost gave up on the wiki casue they just kep coming back, it took some time to get rid of them and when most of them were gone it got a lot better, glad i didnt quit.

    Well, while this type of nostalgiaism is being mentioned, I'd like to remind you to blame the wiki's death on me if you ever feel it's dying.

    I am also why PvP is deteriorating, and why the game feels easier now, although the "Easier game" one might be a realistic blame after figuring out RES...

    Or just the entire Off-topic section for that matter. It's basically where we all head to just chill out with each other lol. Except for the 'Let it out' thread, that's a pretty serious spot.

    Yes, I agree that the wiki has matured. That's all to the good and I'm not complaining about that. I'm not a fan of trolls either but whoever they were, they weren't trolling. They were genuinely funny posts because of the way they expressed themselves (no bad language was used). It's a difficult concept to explain but thanks everyone for your comments.

    I'm clearly still ridiculous, although perhaps not in the sense you mean silly I have had to put my serious hat on though since becoming a mod. Well, mostly.

    Yep,I know that Tolvo. Maybe you were one of them. I wouldn't be surprised. Tell you what, it would make my day if you posted a picture of you wearing Pharis's hat, tights and waving a rubber chicken.

    I know, this is getting silly. I'll get me coat.

    I need a rubber chicken over here! Honestly Tolvo, how have you made it this far into an acting career without a rubber chicken.

    It'll be a mod for the PC, it'll go hand in hand with the Nude Black Iron Tarkus mod.
