    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    This one isn’t quite fandom specific so much as an unfortunate change to the internet in general. See the fifty thousand articles on predatory parasocial relationships courted on sites like YouTube and Twitch which actively reward users for both funneling followers’ money into their pockets and...

    @@@ OFFICIAL SUGGESTION THREAD @@@

    I don't know if this was missed in the site restoration, a purposeful choice, or what, but: Potentially restore a bunch of the former staff accounts (Sciggles and Chase are two that immediately spring to mind) that are no longer on the staff list? Just seems like one of those things better...

    So, how have you all been?

    Had a decent enough month. Couple expected deliveries arrived, made some good grub, mostly caught up on medical stuff, found a few interesting things in local shops. Oh, and caught up in some choice off-FAF drama. In and outside the fandom. For a good example of the latter (which is still...

    Warframe News and Info

    Being fair, a lot of Archwing weapons have ceased to be particularly good over time. I remember when Grattler use to be one of - if not the - best Archwing gun, and now it's generally put at the bottom of everything that isn't low-level Archwing (and even only then due to the built-in AoE). Even...

    Pretty sure they mean an entirely different Two Kinds than the one you're thinking of. What with Tom Fischbach not being Amy Tan.

    For reference, it’s approximately 7-8 maxed out runs of Plague Star to get the full saw (BP, Components, Stance). Which is a bit grind-y but also a given since we don’t know if Nidus Prime BP will chiefly be Plague Star or not yet so people are going to farm the event anyhow. I’m doing better...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    Sorry for the double post, but this might make things a bit easier to comprehend what my point is: Among our United States residential members, imagine your extended family. Any surviving parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins, et al. In ideal circumstances, you...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    Which is a bit of a problem when some people's very existence is deemed political, and online spaces are increasingly consolidated to the point that the likelihood of hostile interaction approaches 1. There's only a handful of ways in which that situation can be resolved, and they all...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    I mean, this does nothing to dispel my point? Whoever the instigator is (my portrayal defaulted to others, yours the NB), that conflict would not have occurred otherwise. Unless you're presenting a counter-argument that the crowding / changes to the internet in general are not the issue, but...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    It is not an attempt at badgering. It's emphasis on the final paragraph. Normally these situations would not have cropped up because people would have kept to their own little niches / communities on the internet. That increasingly is not an option. You can stick to private chat servers, but...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    Great! And if somebody can't because, say, they get shit for making a non-binary fursona (because they're non-binary and thus, logically, their fursona is non-binary)? Or is on the receiving end of some pretty sketch commentary because the settle on a kemonomimi / lycanthrope version of their...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    Since politics has come up now from at least four different people (five if you include my "Even dropping political reasons people say the fandom has gotten worse"): Politics has increasingly come up in the fandom because, surprise of surprises, fandoms are created of people and politics (or...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    Considering how many people are talking about online fandom stuff, I have to wonder how much of the complaints relate less to the fandom specifically and more changes that have been made to online spaces in general. For one very big example: Of all the various social media sites, Tumblr is...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    That doesn’t actually counter or contradict my point though. My point was that if you went back even just ten years ago, being popular in the fandom basically let you get away with anything short of murder so long as you said “Sowwy” afterwards. Nowadays… people still do (and unfortunately it’s...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    I'll be real with people: Dropping even the "Blatantly political and thus against FAF rules to bring up, why do people keep stirring that pot / swinging a bat at that bee's nest then acting like the harmed party when it invariably turns into a shitshow?" reasons for why the(edit: They argue the)...

    While I was fortunate enough to have it happen to my non-dominant hand instead of my dominant, this is entirely relatable to me: Before my arthritis diagnosis my left hand's range of motion at one point reached "Approximately 5°. And if you're about to ask which direction, the answer in all...

    Things you love that are totally STUPID?

    Blood Bowl is - without a doubt - one of the most off the wall, mindlessly indulgent settings you could possibly imagine. International disputes resolved via (exceptionally violent) football leagues? Skaven Twitter? Just about everything from the Warhammer Fantasy setting carried over to the...

    Things That You Hate v3.0

    This makes, what, three years and six confirmed / self-admitted Kyr alts? Plus however many were suspected but weren't explicitly confirmed before getting the hammer? Anyone else hate that they can remember the good ol' days where "[x] is probably a Kyr alt" was used as a point of derision /...

    Tan lines

    I've actually got something approaching pigmentation now, but only just. Tanning and me have never really worked out, in no small part because I burn like petrol: Leave me outside in direct sunlight for, say, half an hour, and without sun screen I'll very likely burn. For more than an hour? Best...
