I saw your post in the achievement flagging thread; and considering there's a chance that it could get removed, I figured I'd post here regarding it. Wouldn't want to incite something. You say there's a lot of negativity in your post, but I saw a lot of truth in it. While achievement flagging is cool and a great feature, it is 2015. This site will be 10 years old in 8 months. This site could have used that feature years ago. Now users must go through xba's full category of games to add in the flags.
Talk about droll...
Anywho...you're not the only one who thinks this site isn't the same...because it isn't. I wonder if this site will ever garner that golden crown again. Or if that crown is even in play at all anymore. Who knows.
All right, so the situation is this - when I'm not at college, I still live with my parents to avoid paying for my own housing. They absolutely despise video games and like to treat me like an 8 year old child, so they put on a curfew for my brother and I, and get super pissed when I don't follow it. I would honestly not want to deal with that, so I apologize for leaving. I forgot about it because it's a stupid fucking rule and I hate it, but they do let me live here.
Yeah I know. You usually don't post with such viciousness. In any case, it's always a battle of trying to keep myself from wanting to beat people down for perceived slights, more or less. It's hard to do, but I've been trying.
People say I need to chill out because my reactions are often over the top, I get that. The problem is, it's hard to mediate my responses when people are either being stupid or are being toxic to me back. However, if you've noticed, I always try defusing arguments now within 3-4 posts. It's something I'm working on, but getting pissed off at me is not a good way to get me to stop. I hope you understand that.
If you're so tired of seeing my posts, there's a nifty little forum tool called the ignore button just for that purpose. As for instigating fights - no. I don't instigate anything, at least on purpose. Defensive? I'll tell you the alternative - either I sit down and take whatever's thrown at me or I do as I'm currently doing - defending myself. Dak, you're not a mod. I don't care what you would've done. I'll leave my business to my own, and I advise you do the same.
