Single Status Update
(my first blog post)
Compared to most of active members on the Doomworld Forums, I'm a (kinda) freshman. The third year anniversary is coming for me within 9 days. I don't want to make any special thing for that, since it's not more than just forum membership...
...except this post. Because it makes me remind that I have to tell something.
Obviously, 3 years isn't much from the whole history of DWF, threads we can see in /vb is not even the whole stuff (if I know well, pre-2000 stuffs are from another place) which means at least 15 years of forum history. That's helluva lot of days, months, threads, posts, members (some of them aren't even among us - think of Espi), discussions, argues and events that had happened. And I missed a lot of them!
Of course, I have nothing to blame for it. I'm just too young. I have the chance (and the ability) to write previously happened discussions and comments.
Things are getting worse when I'm doing it.
I've played some of the third part of Community is Falling and read a bunch of threads, opinions and posts here (and on other places too) and I seriously can't get, what the hell is going on.
With a kinda accurate suggestion (at least accurate IMO) the average age of members must be around 25-30, maybe even more. Though, a lot of childish, ridiculous and terrible argues have happened here - BrutalDoom, Graf Zahl's ragequit, the constant hatred between "old-school Doomers" and "ZDoomers" , atred between Zandronum and ZDaemon users, the bullshit around deathz0r (actually it's didn't happen on DW), et cetera.
Maybe "argue" is not the right word for it, but please, I'm sorry that with my decent English knowledge, I can't find any words for those shameful, strongly annoying behaviours and unnecessary series of useless and trollish shitposting I've seen.
I love being here anyway, I just can't get the behaviour of some people - and mostly, I can't get,why people can NEVER live in peace?!
