PostSubject: Issues Arising with Activity    Sun Nov 18, 2012 10:46 pm

      Hey,
        I'm certain everyone is aware of how busy we all are. We're all in highschool now, and on top of having a life, we are also dealing with mountains of homework, family, and other issues that might decide to pop up. However, I have noticed a prominent issue in the way we are treating these forums, and I felt the need to bring it into the light.

        I want everyone to feel like they can trust everyone here, and can feel free to speak their mind, be honest, ask for help, and let things out. However, lately, it's been getting overwhelming. Again, we're all teenagers, have issues in our lives, and need help with them. We're not really just a forum anymore; we're a twisted creeper family of anti-social anime nerds -- which means we should always feel open and at home here to be able to express whatever's on our mind.
        But, again, it's getting out of hand.
        Guys, I wanna voice my concerns about this because I feel like this place is slowly falling apart, and I don't want that to happen. But lately, more and more people are purely getting on here to voice their life problems and then leave. This place has gone from an escape from the real world to an emotional dump and rant hotspot about the real world. I think we all agreed when Clover was banned that these forums are our escape from the world -- from all our issues, school, reality -- all of it. It's a place to relax, have fun, and enjoy ourselves. But lately, we've been dragging our problem here with us, and I feel like it's slowly tearing these forums down.

        I'm not saying we aren't here for you when you need to talk, or need advise, or anything like that. All I'm saying here is that we could seriously reduce the amount of emotional output we're obsessing over. We've made this place into that ranting thread we had a while back instead of the relaxing place to laugh and have fun and escape to. More and more, people are just getting on here to rant about life issues, get a few "I'm sorry's" or a bit of advise, and leave. That's not what this forum was supposed to be about -- but it's heading in that direction.

        I know we're all busy -- Fuck that, I'M busy. All the freaking time. I'm stressed, have things going on at school, and have things I don't even share with you guys going on. But these forums used to be where I could come to get away from it all, sit back, make retarded sexx jokes, and role play. But now, we rarely roleplay(and when we talk about it, no one ever wants to do anything), I haven't laughed with you guys in ages, and every time I get on, I dread what fucked up stories I'll have to endure this time; because that's basically all that happens here anymore. And it's really sad. And I don't want us to stop talking to each other because of this. You guys are quite possibly the best friends I've ever had. Actually, screw that -- you guys ARE the best friends I've ever had. I know you guys will support me no matter what, will laugh at my stupid jokes, obsess over the same fictional guys, and will go to crazy levels to help me out with things I need help with -- and I really hope I mean the same to you. I love you guys. Okay? But I hate this sickening feeling that we're drifting apart because of being busy and homework and boys and all that shit.

        So I'm just asking...could we maybe try to convert this place back to the way it was before? Where we get away from all that messed up life shit, lay back with our overly-loved computers and laugh? Rp? Have fun? Escape from all that crap?

        I dunno. Maybe I'm the only one experiencing this. But I feel like it needed to be voiced. I know we've all matured, and grown up or whatever. But I don't feel like that should result in what it has. So...I felt like this needed to be said.

        I don't wanna lose you guys, and because none of us live anywhere close to anyone, that's really easy -- and I can see it happening right now.

        But yeah. I dunno. That was probably terribly worded and I probably offended a bunch of people. But...there's my two cents. Because...well, what I said before.

        Love you guys, k?
        -- Staysh

I'm sorry I haven't been on; I've been so busy with school and grades and crap. I have a D in English and a really low C in Algebra.
I've been playing League to make myself less bored, I actually have irl friends now, and occasionally I hang out with them.
I try to come on here every day, but sometimes I just can't make it. :/

Right, and I know that. I have the same issues. I have friends too. I have a life.
What I'm saying is that I just really don't want people bringing their life problems on here, spilling them all over, and then leaving. Because that's kind of what's been happening lately. That's what I'm getting at.

Everyone has a role to play in the issue, Claire, it's not just you. I do it too.

But like I said -- I want everyone to feel like they can express their feelings and ask for help from everyone because we're supposed to be friends, ya know? But lately, people only come on to rant about life and then poof.
And these forums have kinda turned into a ranting place rather than a place to escape from all that crap. Ya know?

But honestly, everyone is to blame. And it's all of us doing it together that's making this place feel more and more like a soup of feels rather than a cool place to relax and have fun. Ya know?

Yeah, I know. I'll try not too. I guess this is my one place where I can tell people everything that's going on, just to get it out of my system, and it won't come back and bite me in the ass later as some sort of rumor around school or something. But I'll try not to use it like that quite so much.

Oh, no, I totally get it ^^ I do it too. It's because I trust you guys, and I know you will be able to support me and give me good advise.
And again, I'm seriously not telling you
"YOU MAY NOT EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGSSSSS"
Because that's not it at all//
I just wanted people to become aware that, you know, the forums are becoming an emotional soup instead of...you know, a place to get away from that stuff.

Aaaah, I'm not sure if I've been doing anything listed above without my full knowledge, but if I am, you can just tell me to shut up and I will, okay? ;u; I try making it here every day that I can, but I don't get enough sleep as it is, and homework comes first. My grades are not at risk, but I'm really pushing my luck and sacrificing my health to an extent. I've also joined 3 clubs, but those are on Thursdays and Fridays, and the rare Saturday, so those aren't getting in the way. But if I'm complaining here or if I'm not involved enough here, please tell me. I'll try my best 'cuz I love you guys and I'd be really depressed if everyone just acted like this place never existed and that we didn't just spend like 3 years together [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Btw this has been killing me this entire time but Stacia,

advice-noun you were attempting to spell

Oh my god.
How have I not caught myself?
That's so embarrassing Dx

I know -- I'm busy too ;~; I have dance for three hours on Mondays, and am often held after school for detentions (because I'm a horrible child). On top of that, this school is extremely hard core. Like, us 9th graders are expected around 3 hours of homework each night, which normally is underestimated and takes me around 4 and a half. Plus, I have the normal family problems, I hang out with friends, and enjoy sleeping as often as I can. I understand we can't all be on all the time like we used to~
I'm just talking about when we ARE on, not bringing ALL our crap on here with us. Because while I am totally open to helping people with their problems, these forums were made to get away from the problems. Ya know?
But yeah.
That's all I'm saying, 'cause lately, I've noticed that's all we've been using the forums for -- talking about our days, presenting issues, and then leaving. Dx

You guys are seriously my best friends and although it's kinda creepy I will meet you all one day.
Yes it's happening.

Anyways.
I DON'T LIKE FEELS SOUP.
NONONONONO
Like, I would love talking to every one about their problems and helping you guys with them, cause that's what friends do, but I don't want it to be all we talk about. WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT THE WONDERFUL THINGS<3
Like our awesome days and everythingg.
And rpinggg
Because I miss our novel-rps
I feel like I'm going nowhere with this so I'm going to stop putting myself in danger and stop typing in the bathtub.
