uhhhhhhhhhh ever heard of a little game called "roblox"
Nah that’s me.
Worst community I’ve ever been apart of? Well, I can’t remember what it was called, but it was a Java programming forum. I was 13 and I just needed help understanding the current multi-threading convention, as it changes with every single update. This was a few years back, before I new the truth about how terrible programming forums were in general.
I tend to dislike communities where questioning mods/staff and bringing discussion about them is considered bad or punishable. Feels like north korea, and i know a few too many communities that are authoritative like this.
Surely GBAtemp would fall under that as well.
It is generally observed that allowing backtalk, questioning and back channel grumbling does not improve matters and as such most places will have something like it.
I would agree many places I have seen are unfair, inconsistent, frequently serve to create an echo chamber and are wildly out of line with notions underpinning things most would otherwise consider fair game but the idea that questioning staff decisions needs to be handled appropriately is nothing new or drastic from where I sit.
GSCentral. joined it as it was dying and horribly administrated
Too many spammers, trolls and jerks ):
Facebook. It was such a time sink. I cut the cord a few years ago, and I haven't had a Facebook page since. My life's gotten a lot better. A few of my friends nagged on me about not being on FB but a lot of those same people have quit since. I've found that if a person really wants to contact you, they'll find a different way to do it. Also, having social media gives people a means to pull you on a string whenever they feel like it. I hear a lot about employers who call their employees in for overtime through social media, and reprimand them if they don't respond, and it's the same thing with owning a phone. If I am not being paid to be on call or on close terms with someone, I would not extend them the privilege of freely contacting me. If a person wants to contact me, they can send me an email to my company website and I'll get to it when I damn well please, or not at all. I only chat with people if I know them and trust them, or if I have something to say.
I don't carry a phone and am notoriously difficult to contact, and I like it that way.
