    I'm interested in finding out who those people are. Care to drop the names Mr. Metal?

    i dont suspect that is true. there are people who enjoy being assholes in a jocular fashion, and a few feuds maybe, other than that i would have to STRONGLY DISAGREE with that assessment, especially in the past 2 years or so.

    I agree 100%, I've been saying this all along. (not about everyone being mean on purpose, but about everyone being mean to newbies)

    New people are made to feel like assholes for being new. "Haha you didn't know that Tim shaved his balls in 9th grade, yer a loser. Everyone knows the rituals regarding Tim's balls. go necrotroll a dead forum to learn about the history OR U SUX!"

    That, or they are accused of being an alt because no one can believe that a new member would actually join.

    factual inaccuracy. all of lord's friends were readily accepted, qoorl was readily accepted when he joined, as was nidogod. that pudding guy who posted for a little while was pretty well welcomed, as was that blake guy who posted for a few days then left again because theres no activity here - again - because of the main site.

    members who arent OUTRAGEOUSLY terrible are well accepted.

    you were accepted pretty well if i remember even.

    as i said, this sort of behavior is encouraged here. you probably don't notice it because you support it and justify it. not a slight at you either don't take it that way, just idealogical observation.

    a few feuds and a few posters who act like dicks to be funny are prevalent in literally every decent forum on the internet. to say this forum is inordinately negative is pretty ridiculous. if anything i would say we're more positive than many forums i've seen.

    who are you agreeing with? neither tim nor myself said that people being "mean" to newbies was the cause.

    I think a better explanation or background for jokes should be given to nublets who are trying to join in on the fun. Otherwise I don't think there's that much of a circle jerk type thing here.

    i mean i actually made three threads for lord's people saying i liked them and wanted them to stay active. i mean i dont know how much more welcoming you can get. plus lord was a long time joke and annoyance on this forum and everyone hated him, but when he came back and was a decent poster he was treated as such.

    this myth that pd is unacceptable of new members and never recognize posters who improve has persisted for years despite being ridiculously untrue.

    they exist and intent is irrelevant to me, i look at what it causes. in this case it causes others to be negative. then it becomes a circle of blaming cause or reaction and that will never end.

    people being dicks to be funny are still people being dicks in the first place. as i said a few times already, this behavior is encouraged here.

    i never said this was the case so i don't know why it's being brought up so much

    we do alright in handling new people. if someone with 10k posts is a moron they'll be treated like someone with 10 posts who's a moron and vice versa.

    except it doesnt cause a large amount of negativity. this forum is not full of negativity and its not like people and running around trying to pick fights all the time. i mean look this new pants guy, if pd was overly negative would this guy REALLY be able to go around posting with his internet jokes and obnoxious username with impunity?

    im actually perplexed about what you mean by modern pd being full of negativity and people trying to pick fights. the ONLY example i can think of honestly is kelsh having to make a snide comment every time dogar is mentioned in association with her. even dogar being a dick these days, he does it in such a jocular manner it can hardly be considered negative.

    except it does. if you refuse to acknowledge it that's fine. was merely stating my opinion on the subject.

    I think the myth is perpetrated by those shitty posters who are looked down upon and resent it. Like me in my younger years:

    if you want to ignore or water down the facts i lay out that's fine, this isn't my problem anyway so i'm not trying to fix it. was just trying to help you guys out.

    I'm serious. This topic is getting stagnant and gay. talk about something else.

    I think your both wrong btw.

    fullmetal the problem is it literally is not true. there is nothing to ignore or water down. pd if anything is more positive than almost every other forum i've been to.

    problem is the main site: CONFIRMED.
