    Default Welcome to the Downfall of the Forums

    Welcome to the Downfall of the Forums.

    No, mods. You're doing a great job, that's why I made SUPPORTDEV for heck's sake, I'm taking about the community. The community is what makes Growtopia - Growtopia! But I'm not talking about Growtopia, I'm talking about the Behind-The-Scenes of Growtopia, the forums.

    The forums have gone downhill, when 2015 came, it became bland and boring, in 2013 and 2014 it was energetic and drama and friendliness everywhere! When it was 2015, it was straight and simple and bland. In 2016 it's still the same for me, bland and simple.

    If you look in Areodax (a great Forumer and a good friend of mines)'s signature, it says this -

    "Holy mother you can feel the forums going downhill. Unescessary posts, useless threads and forumers seeking attention. The mods could at least do something about this."

    This is my feeling, MagicalFishy, again, a great Forumer. Said this in his quiting thread before he came back -

    "I am very upset with authority in the aspect that they do not try and search for new moderators to lead the community. This is taking a devastating toll on our community as a whole. Spammers, trolls, and people with absolutely no respect still get away with their crimes pretty much scotch free. Our opinions cannot be voiced, drama even in a civil manner cannot be caused, and simply bringing up the name of a banned player or scammer in a thread is considered outlawed. I always cared compassionately about the community, and I always wanted to help out the community in the largest way(s) possible. I always had the feeling of lacking power when I knew I could make a difference. But oh well, that's just a lame story about a kid who's upset and quitting the fourms right now. I may seem immature right now, but I do say that this break/final goodbye is what I need right now. I'll miss all of you very dearly."

    I cleared all of that, now let's talk about this, GradeAUnderA style.

    Threads - Posts - Stuff

    To further evidence my and Areo's "Unnecessary Post" arguement, let's look for unnecessary posts - in the General Chat.

    Here's a alert about scams. Which everybody knows, don't trust anybody you don't know, and don't even trust your friends. It's that simple. Also, wrong subforum.

    A illumanti confrimed OMG!!1!1!1 dorito OMG mlg faze clan thread. This is spam, very much spam. That meme is old as heck.

    A 'so weird' thread.. /idk and /wink at the same time? Woah! No Sherlock, just do /idk and .

    You see! These threads are so out-of-placed and unnecessary, I don't care about your illumanti crap, I want to see real threads with detail.

    Drama

    Drama!

    We all love drama, come on, we watch it on tv, we do it in our lives, drama is part of our lives! In 2013-2014 drama was everywhere and it was entertaining. Angrox? MySpice Cancer? Yeah! But in 2015 we only got Casinos and STYX, that was it. Without drama, the forums are bland, so yeah.

    The Community

    This is it - the community.

    There are mini-mods everywhere you see, attention seekers and people raising their post count, that's the new community. Bland - simple - annoying. We only have a few 2013 Forumers, some 2014 Forumers, and a bunch of 2015-2016 Forumers, that's good! But they're so childish and immature I can't believe their mother let them join the forums. So listen up 2015-2016 Forumers, get mature, you won't be a mod if you keep asking to be, more attention will make your rep decrease, and at least give your posts some sense.

    What does this mean?

    Get your game up forums! Your idiocy and annoyance is why iCantDance got banned and why bluemtdew got cursed for a while. You guys are lowering the IQ of the whole street.

    If you support this and want to change back the forums, and in regards of MagicalFishy - let's #MakeTheForumsGreatAgain - Yeah, that sounds cheesy as heck, but if your like me, put it in your siggy. And if you ever get to meet a mod or some sort, remember to say that.

    Anyways, I let that out, so yeah. So I hope you agree with this, post your arguments down below, so anyways, have a great day.

    I'm afraid this is applicable here.

    I really don't understand why people tend to nitpick over tiny things like this. These forums have had a laizzez faire administration for a while now, sometimes raising the bar in what constitutes as breaking the rules. But honestly, it's nothing different from any other game forums. They only assume it's gone to deep because of the social utopia people perceived it to be back in 2013. No, it wasn't perfect; It was quieter because there was lesser people which meant those that liked to stir trouble weren't as conspicuous.

    The forums haven't changed at all. Removing the drama subforum didn't change anything due to forums having the inherent nature to always make drama. Hell, some people on here use certain topics as a pretext to baiting other forumers into dramas.

    Spam is the same. If you didn't think there was spam back then, you haven't met people like FuzzyWuzz nor seen the not-so-bright moments of Wok and GBAGamer.

    My goodness, maybe some people need to reflect upon themselves especially when you worship the ground of people like icantdance and bluemtndew who created conflict just so you guys can have your drama euphoria. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate them nor dislike them in the least. It's just being a contrarian is just another way of attention seeking.

    Hypocrisy? I cannot even begin to explain the unique angles people are not seeing to this problem. First of all, if the majority wants change, stop making it necessary. Cheering for the insinuating, sarcastic remarks. Being cynical is not being a jerk — not even synonymous — so speculative behavior is what should not be scrutinized. The forums love to galvanize unnecessary quarrels and pick on the new guys; in face of a moderator they falter and put up their friendly facade.

    Is that enough, or should I even touch how people treat each other?

    Haha…oh…fuzzywuzz was pretty good at what he did.

    This really summarizes it up though. A bunch of hypocrites call for change yet maliciously position themselves in the middle as the cause. They are to impute. I am not saying that having more moderators is a bad change; people need to take responsibility for what they say though.

    One of my favorite parts of this is the reference to the admiration of imprudent pessimists that we know too well. Both ICantDancce and bluemtndew literally pick fights with children and people treat them as gods that "speak the truth" (epiphany: damn…AngelicY). Personally, I do not find only picking fights they know they can win admirable at all, if even worthy of recognition. I refuse to laud behavior like that; yet, people still get their kicks from spectating these people, egging them on. So where do posts like the OP fall into the same category as those giving accolade to hatred? Oddly enough, they originate from the same user…

    Recently, the forums have turned me from a nice annoying guy to a hypocrite. And now, I got to prepare Filthy Frank and the clock.

    This thread is entirely true. Not dissing you or anything, but this is surprisingly a very well thought out thread from you. I'll be writing a long thread tomorrow explaining #MAKEGROWTOPIAGREATAGAIN.

    do I count as annoying.
    can someone enlighten me on this?

    No, really, seriously. I joined in 2015, and got a hell a ton of hate.

    am I still my old self? am I spammy?

    if you think I'm spammy, that's probably because I have nothing else to do. The drama subforum was closed, and now I have no where to actually be a senseful person, half of the forums don't even know what common sense is. The topics people have are all boring and stuff. I don't like being boring and stuff, I like to bring fun.

    When I was absent from these forums for a while, I was currently at the TF2 forums, and they have it much worse there. Heck, try the CS:GO forums. We're the ones who have it good here, the TF2/CS:GO forums are a huge cesspool of baitposts and flamewars wallowing in their own filth. The fact that there are no mods there doesn't help.

    Though to be honest, I think it's best if you haven't included drama in there. Like what Megazork sez, kids like them can cause drama anytime, or smarter forumers can bait others in a fit of rage and comment wars.

    Yes, the quality of drama is lacking ever since the mods removed the drama sub-forum, but what can we do? Isn't this a community full of kids? Where thhe forums SHOULD be a safe haven for kids? This game is literally made for ages 10 and above (may need clarification) for Christ's sake. We could just be kid-friendly towards others who are clearly younger than the majority.

    Also, "without drama, the forums are bland", eh? What the hell happened to talking with the people you care about? What the hell happened with making fanfictions for fun? What the hell happened to playing with people in other games, like TF2, Minecraft and so on? Now, is it bland now HBF?

    Yes, my signature says the forums itself is going downhill, it still kinda stands since that's how I see the forums for now. Even I have to widen my horizons for the betterment of my soul.

    The forums are so boring nowadays. I feel like I'm hanging out in the ballpit in a McDonalds.
