    Friendly advice is fine. Just don't be rude or sarcastic about it.

    The introduction forum is not supposed to be the filtering system to determine new users' merits or the thickness of their skins. When you post in response to an introduction thread, you represent the entire community, and it's really starting to piss me off how aggressive and caustic this forum is becoming. I don't want a hugbox, I just don't want a shark tank, and that's what this place is turning into.

    Nylak, are you suffering from memory lapses? It's been going between caustic and hugbox every now and then, depending on the concentration of either faction, but it's certianly nothing new.

    Wait a week or two and you'll be hearing about how this place is so sugary that it can turn a vegetarian diabetic, for it to return to it's present state sometime later :V

    This forum wasn't always a tank full of sulfuric acid with razor-spitting sharks swimming about?

    I don't remember any extended period in recent times where this place was nice and getting along. If you think it is, I need to show you all the people bitching in the mod box reports 24/7.

    Unless you mean the forums as a whole, and not just introductions, then you can see the root of the problem. A lot of the people are simply whiny and report every stupid thing that shouldn't even need mod intervention. Those are the people you're trying to excuse here.

    Besides, that's one of the reasons I always thought that becoming a mod here is a mad idea. Lots of work, no results and pain, like punching a brick wall in hope that you're doing it loudly enough to get people to shut up.

    In any case, I think you can rest well tonight, for I see all the bleeding hearts already started pouring into Introductions again.

    So this:
    Welcome to the forums. If I can say something, this is not an RP forum. You may PM some people if they seem interested, but don't make a thread about it.

    If you're willing to stay, I hope you enjoy your stay.
    Not this:
    Alright, you retard. What you just posted is the type of retarded shenanigans we don't allow here. Don't you go posting until lurk for a year, because you're definitely too stupid to join our supah secret klub.

    [insert whiney tone] But Nylak I just got the paddle out- they don't do returns on newbie smack paddles you know!

    You realize the rest of FAF will turn into THIS.

    Well in the end FAF will change into a rage box eventually. Most forums do no matter how many good vs mean you have. Being nice to the newbies I can see and respect though I feel as though they should have to take a quiz proving that they read the TOS and rules.

    So you're saying that in 300 years we'll see this change something? >_> Cause I don't think FAF will be around in 300 years.

    And if it is, god help society.

    You get what I'm saying. You never know what'll happen. Though I agree this place will still be rabies pit it is today to the day it ends.

    Wait,
    What sense does it make to sugar up the intro forums if you're going to let us rip them apart later?
    Thats like baiting a trap. If we're kind (read as restrained) in the intro forums and some stupid FUREINDS4EVER faggot comes skipping along and gets the idea that people are going to asspat him only to be shocked into leaving by the reality of the FAF, what has being "more civil" in the beginning accomplished? They left anyway.

    The Intro forum SHOULD be a filtering system. Whoever is not willing to adapt and improve will be filtered out. They will go somewhere else and thrive, we wont have to deal with their bullshit. Its a win-win.

    Things are fine as they are, we're weeding out people who wouldn't fit here and the more informed newbies are thriving.

    Actually putting it like this Nylak is a genius!

    We bait more lulzy noobs to come in and then we can watch them get ripped apart once they start expecting asspats. Nylak may have just doubled the rage that will ensue on FAF!
