To the Pessimists (aka Gustav and Snapman)
 
Seeing as how arguing on IRC about my political values is not working, considering I'm being ganged up upon by 3-4 people at once, and how you love to both bitch about how bad the MBN is now, and how much better the "good ole days" was, why don't you tell us all how you would improve the MBN? Since we all know you are the greatest members of all, and are respected by all. Tell us.

And for those members like me who are less than 1 year old, tell Snap and 'Stav what you think about them, saying how because of you, this forum is crap. Go on guys, the table is all yours. :rolleyes:

MBNdwnhil=Snap



<MBNdwnhil> i can't believe the state of the MBN
<MBNdwnhil> I declare anarchy
<LBGustav> I did a few months ago, MBNdwnhil
<Atresica> right, perhaps you should go to #moan
<LBGustav> except in the world cup thread
<Atresica> at least people are there who DO care
<MBNdwnhil> The MBN starteds going crap after the world cup :(
<StarmanDX> hmm
<Atresica> well leave if you find it that terrible
<MBNdwnhil> I've stopped posting =/
<LBGustav> MBNdwnhil: it happened before
<Atresica> good, now stop moaning about it against us, it's not like we can change it suddenly
<LBGustav> guess why I became so crazy at IRC
<LBGustav> Atresica: omg
<MBNdwnhil> heh
<LBGustav> you have moaned too
<LBGustav> I dont like the moaning
<LBGustav> but
<StarmanDX> ARGH
<StarmanDX> bloody scanner >_<
<LBGustav> Atresica: you moaned lot too
<RougeOeil> gtg ok I fixed it
<RougeOeil> Try again
<Double-J> Snap- what j00 think we should dooooo then?
<LBGustav> Double-J: leave, of course
<LBGustav> nothing lasts forever
<LBGustav> I mean the threads now are so n0b

Atresica 2002-11-13 22:52

Some people prefer to complain instead of doing something about the situation.

Double-J 2002-11-13 22:55

I just figured I'd give them some time to express their feelings here, where all the members can see, and how they can improve the situation, since we all know they are so high and mighty after all. :rolleyes:

Double-J 2002-11-13 23:28

Oh and guys remember:

HomerSimpson 2002-11-14 00:14

I liek Gustav.

Medur 2002-11-14 00:44

I liek Gustav and Snapman, and I think everybody has personality imperfections and make mistakes sometimes (for us; maybe not for them), and they should not be crucificied because of those. Actually we all complain about something (not especifically the MBN), but none of us usually do something relevant about it. Atresica always complain about her excess of energy but she from times to times explodes in some one who did not deserve it, I brag all the time about my country´s social state but I´m still sitting on my chair, all the brits complain about the heat or something else but want or not their team lost for Brazil (:D), etc. But threads don´t have to opened because of that.

CS2x 2002-11-14 01:16

I am a frog. The tree, la! yes.

btw-the forum is fine. I have been here since near the beginning, and I hate the attitude of some ppl on other forums who have been on a forum for ages and think they know it all. But I don't know about this situation....so...*hic*.


Look! A bunch of berries.

ect.

Reek 2002-11-14 07:00

Ooh! a provocative thread.

Well, in my opinion, there's no reason to complain about those things, even if they are true.
It's just pointless and unpleasant.

But they didn't do anything much besides IRC, so there's no real problem..

Homeless 2002-11-14 10:22

Gustav and Snapman is'nt so bad :p

Double-J 2002-11-14 13:49

Hey, I just wanna give them ample opportunity to put their money where their mouths are. I mean, if your gonna bitch, and go so far as to gang up on me and attack my political/ethical beliefs, then lets hear what you have to say. Its real easy to gang up on someone when I'm the only American/Conservative on IRC, and its also real easy to bitch about the forum when there's nobody there, so let's have it out Gustav/Snap- Snap, I know you don't like me, that's no secret, and Gustav, well, I just didn't think you would act like this to a "pretty confirmed leading group member", but that's okay. No problem. :eek:

I'm just waiting for you guys to tell me what you are going to do to change the forum, and make it "great" as it was in the old days. :rolleyes:

kaderoboy 2002-11-14 17:55

Well it's like this, now some of the older members think this forum is getting boring because members like froggee, silverfish, darkstealth etc. left. Now they see everything as 'n00bish.' I don't see why the MBN is going downhill, what isn't there now that was there in October 2000?

StarmanDX 2002-11-14 18:09

I actually think the MBN has got better.

That's not the most clever thing that could be done, but think about it - it takes two. You were a definate antagonist, coming onto the forum as a new user, with the pretense of "I've been here forever".

Everybody knows that internet forums and communities are soooo soooo *clicky*. Maybe it sucks, but you should know you can't just approach a community and expect to be top man right away; it will annoy the natives.

Sorry if it sounds harsh, but the older members never had such an extreme attitude before you and a couple of others came to the forum acting like that ^_^;;;

The mbn is fine..
#1 we ran outtaa toooooPIcIs:P
#2 want to see how i was insulted for being an idiot in the beginning:P i cant deny, i explain story

I had got 3dsmax, and i could model simple stuff, though i was pretty good at 2d stuff, my friend seemed far ahead of me in 3d, anyway he knew i was crazy about lba, he filled my mind with stuff that the 3d siles of lba1 could be extractied, and editied, and he understood a bit of programming, i thought i could use a program i had (i frgt what its called) to recreat/ edit lba, make it look icy, just mess around, even change the charecter, we made a penguoin, but then i told the mbn, sounded ExTremely silly:p they all made fun of poor me:( well they had no clue what an lba fan had, i had called fred before the i knew about the mbn, but the mocked me when i said i did... to the point... a member called webseed... well i wasnt a native member, and same problem happened, click on following to understand :P
This is what was opened cause of me.. actually the idiot he reffered to was me:-/ hehe:P ow well all said.. if i was a mod of this section id have closed this thread & deleted it.. it only provekes hate between members.. i think many would agree (im not taking sides jj, i dont even have the same belief as anyone in the world:P)

Raymond_the_elf 2002-11-14 20:26

I just have to say that i like everyone on the mbn despite views about how people like me make it crap. I can see that the mbn probably was at its best when lba 2 was just released A.K.A before my time. D.J. this was before yours also, i doubt their meaning bad at us, just at time and the infinite shittiness of everything.

Twinsal 2002-11-14 20:43

This IS a GREAT forum!! The only thing a little missing is the spirit of LBA. We ran out of things to talk about it. But I think that will improve with screenshots and new info about Trium Planeta.

Gustav and Snapman are alright.

Star 2002-11-14 20:47

I don't really know Gustav and Snapman, but I don't agree with them. I love this forum! I'm already subscribed to another forum, but it's way too busy there. It's just more fun here.

Raymond_the_elf 2002-11-14 21:00

Exactley! Its a great forum for making friends and talking about wierd shit, but its not lba right now. Maybe soon.

Double-J 2002-11-14 22:04

Keds- I never said I was old-skool member here, or that I was around back when it all began or whatever. But I have known of the community for quite some time.

How the fuck do you figure that? Please show me the posts. The first thing I posted was how great the forum was and blah blah blah, no pretense at all of superiority or inherited longevity. Never have I said "well because of so and so this sucks" or "I remeber when I first came" or shite like that. :o

D`Sparil 2002-11-14 22:16

Odd how neither Gustav NOR Snapman have replied to this post.:D

Double-J 2002-11-14 22:29

cause they lack the intestinal fortitude needed to act "like a man" and respond to my thread, but they would rather hide behind the keyboard until it all goes away. :geek:

Hmmm. I do remember that first post and you were indeed giving praise.

Maybe I didn't word myself correctly. I'm trying to say you made yourself at home quickly, and started posting asthough you had been here for longer than was the reality. That type of thing always ruffels the established, "oldskool" members of any forum.

You don't need to be aggressive. I have a neutral standpoint. I'm trying to explain my view of the attitudes which seem to have upset you so much.

Double-J 2002-11-14 23:03

Keds- sorry d00d. I understand. :)

CS2x 2002-11-15 00:57

Double-J...don't worry, I agree with your views on America and so on...I hate the way people people dismiss everything America does (it's very "in" to do that these days)...

But I won't go into politics now..
;)
