Ok, I have decided to leave these forums. I have better things to with my life than sit at my computer and talk to people who are mostly imbisiles with the obvious few exceptions. Few being the prime word in that sentence.
Since I joined I have began to like these forums less and less. I thought that I may as well stay because I know alot of people here and the devs for the PSP development can be really helpful and are very knowledgable. After possibly about a month of being at these forums I discovered the MD Party Room. I used to like it, until a select couple of people started to ruin it (at least for me) I'm not gonna say that I won't name names, because, well, I would really rather like them to know.
Chathurga, joined the same month I did. He, is the most objectionable person I have ever came across. If he is as nasty and dispicable as he is on these forums as he is in real life, he must be a chav. He seems to have a unfounded hatred for me, for which I can't fathom what I have done to deserve the treatment I get from him.
Josey Wales, he acts like Beavis and Butthead. Anal sex seems to be the most funny thing to him as is any type of sex for that matter. To be fair though he can be serious sometimes on small occasions. But most of the time he is just an immature prick. I have also suffered some really horrible insults from him through no fault of my own.
iball, I am sure there are alot of people who don't like him. But, the way he acts as if he runs the ****ing forum just pisses me off to no end. He treats people who need help like n00bs and flames anyone who asks a simple question. You also have to coordinate your sentence structure accordingly otherwise you will have to suffer his stupid, gratuitious flames.
Now, thats only 3 people but there are alot more out there who just piss me off generally, but these are the people I just can't even tolerate.
I used to argue with people who said the forums are going downhill. Now I find myself agreeing with them. These forums are going downhill. And it isn't because of the lack of care that people have about the forums such as admins (like Mysticales who freaking rules btw), its because of the members. People seem to think that just because you are making fun of people over the internet that it isn't the same as making fun of them to their face. I will admit that i have been guilty of doing this once or twice, but I always apologize afterwards. Unless I felt the person deserved it. Like Chathurga and Josey Wales and iball. There are also these members who act elitist just because they know how to program, or do something someone else can't. A forum isn't supposed to be about arguing, a forums is a place where people should be able to feel free to ask questions, even if they are stupid. Not somewhere where people are afraid to ask questions incase someone makes fun of them. It should be the same in life too. Unfortunately, as in life, there are alot of people who take pleasure in making fun of people, and making them feel small. This isn't the way it should work and we should purge the forums of people who do this. Without question.
Don't think I am not going to mention the people I do like as well. There are a few people that I genuinely like on this forum. football, possibly one of the nicest people I have ever spoken to. Always there to help. An incredible mod, and an asset to QJ.net. If you ask me, he should be made an admin. Serideth, the same as football, another admin worthy mod. SimplyTheBest (aka - STB aka - PSPunk) kind of got off to a rough start at the forums but is now another brilliant user. MaDSouL or Phronetic or whatever he is called now, a great GFX artist and an all round nice guy. c5cha7, haven't seen him in a while but a developer that is always there to help the beginners. leonheart_a, what can I say? Just a really nice guy who is great to talk to. Kozine, a really talented developer and a good guy to go to when you need help with coding or just want to chat. WowserBowser, I have to say I didn't like him at first but he is a great guy and really easy to talk to. Sanosuke, funny as hell. As for other people I didn't mention, sorry. But I am pissed off just now.
EDIT - had to put in Gmansixfo and Z-Man. Those 2 guys are the coolest!
QJ.net is going downhill and should seriously revalute its users and get rid of some of the ****heads here.
But, I have ranted enough, call this what you will. Laugh at it, call it attention seeking, I couldn't give a tiny rats ass just now. Goodbye.
