Sadly, a wonderful idea
and potentially one of the coolest forums on Earth, if not for major
flaws that completely ruin any enjoyment from it's users.
1. The basic
- Possibly the most inconvenient, inaccessible and unintuitive message
board system I've EVER
seen. Everything you are allowed to do, even the most basic amenities
of forum usage are presented
as "rewards" for accumulating high "karma
" (an ironic term
at best). Basically a badge of honor and level of validity to one's membership gained simply by signing on. You could type by mashing the keys with your face
everyday for a year and be more accepted than a newbie with halfway
"Want to delete a post
? Sorry Karma
is too low. Want to search your
own posts? Sorry
. Mark a troll
for harassing you? Sorry
. Want to post
more than ten times a day? Sorry
"....you get the picture.
is no messaging
system, so communicating on a personal level is impossible. They
even make a point of saying the possible
inclusion of such, is not even up for discussion.
- No 'Edit post
at all. Which
means a lot of deleted posts which
still take up room, and a LOT of double or triple
posting and even more typos that certainly fail to go unnoticed by the site's "grammar police".
You think with all the pop ups and drop downs, this place could spring for some
- The karma
system only serves to create an elitist atmosphere where the opinions of anyone with low karma
are immediately written off as invalid or trollish.
- The codes
for posting aren't presented
to the poster
when posting. You get a box. You type in the box. If you don't know the codes
for italics or quoting. Meh, tuff shit.
If you look
up corrupt in the dictionary.....
THE worst I've ever
Anyone with intellect needs to seriously watch out, because apparently, the moderating staff
is made up almost entirely
of CJayC's punk-ass
little brother's best friends. With all the anti-intelligence and pro-childish fight mob mentality you'd expect
from thirteen year old boys.
Things that can net you moderation:
- Whole words and sentences
- Refusal to kowtow
- not kissing the right ass
- presenting a counter to fanboy supported games
- Being a decent person
3. The People:
a pool filled with people and no water. Imagine
that 90% of said people are under
the age of 18. Hopped
up on sugar and bolstered by "Internet courage" Each one more "1337" than the last. Now imagine
the remaining 10% are buried under
the former struggling
to breath and claw their way through the idiot
kids only to reach the surface to be kicked in the face
by a moderator and pushed
back down into the depths
of Internet Hell.
