You know what's strange? I actually don't think Seticus is flaming! *Audience: Oooooh*

What he's saying is, yes it's a good board, but that could easily change, and it has many weaknesses. That's at least what I got out of it, I do hope I'm right.

@DSM: I think that this person actually said the board was best in Nelrith's opinion, meaning that it is not set a full absolute or theory, just an opinion which can change at any moment with new evidence.

Umm, Vulcanlogic.... Wouldn't this be considered flaming right here?

Look, people, I don't want this to be a personal battle. Save that for PMs and the Sim-Battle Arena. This is a thread for personal opinions about the board, not about each other! If you're going to keep calling each other names like little children, please, for the sake of the board do it somewhere else.

I considered that flaming too. So it's even then.

Nelrith, all I ever got was a bunch of bashing and flaming when I was stating something. You think it would be fair for someone like Thexare to flame and bash me and yet I can't do anything in return? That's why I don't Xeogaming the "best" status. Famous people can walk over the infamous one (like me) so often; I am being picked on because they believe I am the weaker guy with no holding statements.

Like Vulcan said:

Some poster doesn't do their jobs because of their personal issue with people. This effects Xeogaming greatly because of this. How would you feel if that someone forum-banned you of everything and yet you don't know who? Also, I DID mention this:

Which mean don't bother reading stuff from me if only you are going complains against me. This makes you look like bashing person. In short, this not only making ME look like I'm the source of the trouble but I DO NOT simply accept people's ignorant way of bashing me whenever they like, thus creating an unneeded trouble. Sure I do start some but if majority of them within good reasons.

Listen, Seticus. I have absolutely nothing against you. I do, however, believe that some of the posts that you have made have had some questionable grammatical structure, therefore they were a bit harder to read.

Thexare was right in the fact that it was difficult to read (ie: some grammatical errors), but it was still mostly readable. I agreed with your first post! Almost completely. You just have to dumb down your posts a little bit because you're forgetting key words or a single letter in a word to throw somebody's reading completely off.

Thexare was wrong for using the words that he did. He pretty much just bashed you completely for how you wrote your posts! But you were also wrong in bashing him back to make it equal. Two wrongs don't make a right and they never have and they never will.

Seticus, what most people want from you is to keep your posts a little neater. Check over it a few times before you post it. Make sure that everyone else can read it as well as you while getting your main point across.

I'm not trying to bash you. I don't want to be an enemy. All I'm saying is that if you build to an arguement, you're no better than anyone else in the fight. In each of your posts, you have proven a good point about the topic, which is good, but also said something about someone that's not very nice, which is bad.

If you have a problem with somebody or what somebody said, don't throw it out at them in a post. Just leave it out of the post, unless its just completely needed to say what you need. If somebody blatently bashes you and you know that its not true, just ignore it. Usually, that will end it. If they continue, jump down Xeo's throat for them harrassing you! That's what I love about Xeogaming. Flaming isn't tolerated nearly as much as other boards that I have previously been to and that's what I believe makes it so much better.

If we can all just drop the arguing, then we'll all be happy. If you have a problem with what somebody says, who cares? Arguing can only fairly end in both people ending up unhappy (or even banned).

This board isn't for the poster. Its for the posters. Keep it clean for everybody.

Dude.... you need to use prepositions, articles and adverbs sometimes. Just give it a try. It makes all the difference between "I went store" and "i went to the store". If you can master these three simple linguistic tools i am sure that your longwinded, sullen commentary will be vastly improved



noun :prepキoキsiキtion (plural prepキoキsiキtions)
Definition:

word used before noun: a member of a set of words used in close connection with, and usually before, nouns and pronouns to show their relation to another part of a clause. An example is "off" in "He fell off his bike" and "What did he fall off?"

[14th century. < Latin praeposition- "putting before, preposition" < praeponere "put before" < ponere "put"]

arキtiキcle


noun (plural arキtiキcles)
Definition:
3. word before noun: a word used with a noun that specifies whether the noun is definite or indefinite. In English the indefinite articles are "a" and "an," and the definite article is "the."

Any who, I originally would have liked to post before this thread got mangled beyond all recognition that, i HATE message boards in general, i hate the whining, i hate the bitching, i hate the spam, i hate the self importance, i hate the long incoherant whining posts bitching about whatever, i hate the only vaguely post-pubescant atmosphere and opinions......but i like this place, it has alot of my friends and alot more people i dont know with intelligent well thought out opinous. I realize rather keenly as i read this thread that nobody is perfect and even the nicest board has its own set of delusional assholery to deal with but on this board it seems the exeption to the rule rather than the rule itself, i like that

You stole the words right out of my mouth. Sure, Xeogaming's not perfect. But I view it as the best, for the same exact reasons as venomouslobster. It just makes me feel welcome, not only for the user-friendly interface, but also the friendly, intelligent people here that help out and make a difference.

It just has the "certain thing" that the other boards that I've been to doesn't have.

To Seticus: The basic thing that most people are saying to you right now is this: you can post all you like, making those posts as long as you like, but for the love of all things sacred make it readable! You used to write grammatically correct, I don't know why that changed. And don't try to use being deaf as a defence, because that would have absolutely no bearing on written words. Also, in noting that nearly all your posts are negative and filled with ill opinions of this board and pretty much everyone on it, I have to ask this: Why do you post here, if you hate it?

Now, to the topic at hand. I agree that this is one of the best message boards that I've been on. Never been to IceBoard... and I think my stint on Acmlm's was less than a week. NFF is another great board and I hope that the activity picks up there again. The only other such board I've been on has been Vizzed... and I am not about to go into the problems they have. So yes, huzzah to Xeogaming!

I love you guys. I mean, this thread already became an argue party since Seticus came in with his usual over-reactive, negative argue posts (which usually involves taking something wrong, or twisting something).

Yay for Xeogaming. As for NFF, if you want to "see it more active", then contribute yourself.

Hard-of-hearing, and try my past life. I have dealt with students with the same problems as I do, and this caused me to speak improper language. Want to know we talk? Ike dis. Weed doo balk bardly... Hell, this is something around 4 years old would say at the first try at English! Not only was the communication worse when I tend elementary school, but until around 5th grade, I don't have a writing class until middle school. How the hell I would know how to spell grammatically correct until high school? Even with all of those years, I did not take a single damn writing class in my elementary class and hardly both high school and middle school did much to help me. Being deaf was partial of my horror grammar problem, since the teacher does not help us to write and speak properly until 3rd grade! You don稚 understand how my elementary school was a bitch to us students with special disabilities because we did not have the same class like anyone else. You think this was easy?

Sorry if I sound mad, but this is why I always have the hardest moment to write. The teacher (we have one, by the way) was nasty and if one of us made her mad, she curses and get nasty.

Okay, over-reacting or stating out something? Here is my over-reacting now: "Don't fucking tell me when I am over-reacting." /over-reacting

Akane, it is no wonder a person like you are quick to judge and this is way worse then telling me when I am over-reacting. Sometime, I questions people because I do not know their "vague" point of view, yet it is a good reason why a person like you could make me look bad. Not only that, but it is starting to sound like you really want to me become an unstable mental patient. I have to know WHY and put up with my statement of how thing often viewed in my opinion. You guys tell me that I'm over-reacting over a minor thing, in where did I over-reacts where some posters actually have majority of details to provide with? By majority, I mean, the post with logical explanation to fill loose end at the end.

Beside, you need to tell the difference between when I over-react, and when I do not. If you need to know, I don稚 check my post and can skip out few words if only I am over-reacting during that moment. Doesn稚 look like it now and as for the part where I did my first post The only problem is that Microsoft Word does not have the English college teacher痴 grammar correction. Why did you think the first one was horrible?

Who told you that? Okay, so now you are assuming me that I hate the entire world (not really, you said why do I hate Xeogaming) again. You want to play games with me, right? I don't hate the board itself; it is the problem with lack age of information with people... Hell, take a look at what Vulcan said before.

How negative is that? Not so much, since from my point of view, Xeogaming could still need more works, something that my con that can change into your pro. Elara, the information given from people is still lacking. How would you feel if someone made a thread with absolute no point in it? Say it was Congratulation to You, Elara and they said: "Congratulations."

For what? Nothing they said. So what was the point in saying congratulation if the post was a simple "Hi, how are you," dialog? It makes no sense how Xeogaming become the best without a simple proof or opinion from someone in the start. Like this:

Notices how at the start, he provide the information a person (like me or other who may want to join the board) would questions his opinion.
Originally posted by Nelrith
I never really looked at the other Acmlm sites until recently... But I have to say, Xeogaming is the best, hands down! Not only is it run very efficiently, but it is also the most used out of all of the sites!

If he had said it before, I probably wouldn't jump to the conclusion anyway and people would understand why it is the best, in his opinion. But the lack age of information isn稚 always most Xeogaming posters are good at; it can hurt since it is on the general but not specific term.

How is it not specific, you might ask. All he said that it was run efficiently and used out of 殿ll sites. That is completely vague to me, since any other board could have done the same thing. Had he added on how friendly the members were, this explained more then the board being used often.

I know I have several problems with grammar skill, but I知 constantly doing my effort to best it.

Originally posted by Nelrith

Okay But want to explains this then? Don稚 worry, I was just pointing out your flaws.

I hope any of you would understand where I am getting the idea from. It is annoying when you say something on how no specific evidence or opinion are presented to people, hoping that anyone would already grasp the concept idea. I know I got this problem too. I hoped this clears it all.
Edited: Because I know some Japanese... Sumimasen.

Why, oh why, is this thread still open?

Reading through this thread makes me feel like I'm standing next to someone dragging a bunch of nails down a chalk board. It's deviated so far from the original topic that there is no point to keeping it open.

Look, this place (like everyone and everything) isn't perfect, but we're here and that's all that matters. End of story.

If this were three years ago when I first got into messageboarding, I probably would have said something to some people in this thread, argue back or tried to get a point across or whatever. But its been three years. I'm tired and continue to grow tired of little things like this. The care, the love, the passion, the effort and enthusiasm are all draining away from me, and things like this aren't helping.

I give a handshake and a thanks to half of the unretarded parts of this thread, for the rest ... I just don't care to even say anything. My interest diminishes.

Obviously, I'm closing this.
