So, I’m not even a year old yet, but I’ve noticed the change. From when the front page was full of Rp threads and now it’s full of lifeless “popularity” threads. People try to make these stupid threads of click bait or summoning or just things to drain your mind. It’s honestly disappointing to watch the spiral of life this place used to hold go down. The amount of people who made this forum alive are gone and now I feel people are trying lame excuses for creativity to revive it. Not all threads hold 0 creativity, but about 50% of them do. The newbies break rules, are given warnings, break the rules, are given warnings, it’s just an endless loop! Ever since the flow of newbies and decline of oldies, I have watched this place descend into a horrid beast that drains creativity. I will not name forumers, for many are guilty, though, some more than others. I want this place to be what it once was, but it never will. The beauty this place once held is gone and is replaced with the ugly monster that ate the beauty. I am sorry to have watched this place go down in burning flames of lack of imagination. You all need to think before posting. Make your thread different. And, just know, I resent what this forum has become. I resent who made it what it has become. I resent  so much.

 

I will be hated for making this thread, yes. Do I care? No. Yell at me all you want, I don’t care, all I want is for the forums to be what they used to be. 

 

Quartz was right to post what she posted. I support what she said.

 

That is all I will say on the matter.

Nova, I think that the reason there aren't so many creative threads anymore is because they require work that not many people are willing to do :(

 

I promise I'll be more conscious of the threads I post from now on

I honestly have to agree with this post. I wish these forums could be a place filled with more creativity and RPs. I say your opinion is valid. 

 

And a reminder to anyone stalking:

 

If you don't agree with this post and you don't want to start a flame war, then ignore this post and move on.

I would like to ask, how would you want the forums to be fun again?

Let's take it back, and take in every moment

 

Who am I, to tell me who I am?

okay uh

 

@quartz and nova

 

i feel like y'all are kinda overreacting

 

i mean

 

there are various forumers who are still on the forums who are way older than either of you, and they're not complaining the same way you guys are

 

like?? i feel like y'all are making this bigger than it needs to be

 

also, the only real way to "fix" the forums/make them go back the way they used to be, i guess, is to change the people who are on it

 

look, i miss the old days too, but i've accepted that they're probably not coming back. i'm not gonna try and force people to change their behavior (unless it breaks forum rules or hurts feelings) just because i want them to be someone else

 

a lack of creativity is, sure, annoying, but it's honestly not a real problem

 

we've had worse

I don't know my other post is going to go through but

 

Its fine if you think the forums are lacking in certain posts, but I wouldn't say the forums are terrible now and uncreative

 

I mean you could make these creative posts yourself and spur more people to do the same

I definitely agree with the basic premise of this post, and Quartz’s too. Not exactly as deep as you guys feel it, but I completely see where you’re coming from 

I’m from early 2015 myself and there has definitely been a huge change from what it once was, and even what it was just a year ago

I must admit I also wish there were as many RP threads as there used to be, sometimes I just want to join an RP but there are none/aren't many to choose from. There used to be tons on the first page, and I miss that. The fanfics, too.

 

Now I'm just reminiscing. Ignore me :/

I know, yes you opinion is valid and we miss our friends actually more than friends they were almost family but things change and as someone who has seen many of the forums ups and downs, I can say that don't stress this will all wash over and someone will breath life into the forums again.

 

@Quartz

You think you're old well just wait until you're 3 months away from your 2 year forum anniversary.

Except we are the ones who facilitate said change?
Complaining about it is exactly how you create change, find an issue, target it, bring attention to it- and eventually, someone will notice it. Change doesn't just happen because everyone sits around doing nothing, change is reactive. There are hundreds of thousands of examples in the world right now, hundreds of thousands of stories about people being able to cause change through their actions. This isn't a black and white issue.

but this isn't really even an issue. it's more like "oh, the forums aren't the way they used to be, so they're awful!" while I agree that it's annoying, I don't think it's such an issue that all the newer forumers should have to change their behavior to appease a few forumers who say they can't stand it. the behavior they are complaining about isn't harmful.
