Am I the only one who posts here who isn't a mod?


[split] How different is College from High School? - Chanku - 10-05-2014 10:56 AM

Well to be honest very few people are a mod, most people are Forum Helpers(Which I have stated I do NOT like the way it is run, and would prefer an overhaul of the forum helpers.)


RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - TheCancer - 10-05-2014 11:05 AM

Are you a Forum Helper?

What don't you like about how the site is run?


[split] How different is College from High School? - Chanku - 10-05-2014 11:17 AM

I'm actually an Admin, and am a 'Manager' as Soul put it. Also I actually don't like how Forum Helpers is run. I could technically change it, but SoulRiser did put together the Forum Helpers herself and there is procedure to follow as well.

I dun really use my Samaritan powers.

Don't see what's wrong with us forum helpers. Are you elitist bourgeois trying to squelch the power of the tribunal third estate? Razz

I posted here when I wasn't a helper FYI. I think I even have some threads that show me as the one starting it(implying I was pretty much the primary cause of the split).

Much rep.

Lol seriously, with the exception to that, I'm not even going to type like that right now. It's stupid. I'm sick of these "edgy" SS rejects and the attacks, so if you're going to act like a douche then I'm going to treat you like one.

Finally, I get called edgy. That's all I wanted out of life... ;_;

Ya. Im no longer a split virgin. Receieved it but first time giver.

Oh yeah.


RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - Username - 10-05-2014 09:29 PM

I wasn't even attacking him/her/tender gender at all, well it wasn't my intention at least, but I can't be the only one to see that having no job and being so rigid not to get one to pay the bills is.. well, bad, for the lack of a better word.
Reminds me nothing but Rillian.


RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - TheCancer - 10-05-2014 10:34 PM

I actually do think that's fair but you should have gone about it in a more constructive way. I've also scoffed at people on here who are old enough to work but instead still live off their folks and then even have the audacity to complain about it.

More constructive how?

I can't wrap my head around a person, who wants to be a cosplayer, which is an already tough field to live off of if you're male, let alone one that isn't a bodybuilder. At the same time, he wishes to be a pro-gamer.. at what game, he won't say. To top it off, he wants to direct, not make or create, but direct machinima, which is a half-dead, underground medium, for a game that hasn't had a "mainstream" machinima series in over two years.
If all that sounds gibberish to you, he hath posted some time ago, that he won't work unless the job starts at noon. The reasoning behind it being that waking up in the morning for work reminds him of school.
Of course, when I call him out on his bullshit, I get banned, but those who agree or feel sorry him, get little "Thanks" under their posts for their immense contribution to society.

Good lad.

Now THAT was a fucking attack



RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - xcriteria - 10-06-2014 12:18 AM

Alright... TheCancer summed up my thoughts on both sides of this.

(10-05-2014 10:34 PM)TheCancer Wrote:  I actually do think that's fair but you should have gone about it in a more constructive way.

@Username, to be fair, Marty has been actively exploring what to do next, including thinking about jobs other than his dream jobs. The pet store one is an example.

@SirMarty, I've asked people "why are you here?" before, too, but there's certainly a better way to do it than insulting people. It sets a bad example... it shows an ugly side of things to visitors (especially who aren't familiar with all the subtext...) and it sends a mass insult to a whole group of people, who really do differ from each other as people... and aren't all bad.

Plus, people can change if they come to see things in a different way. Being harsh usually doesn't help make that happen (though, granted, there may be some rare instances where it does.)

In short, it's possible to "call people out on their bullshit" in more effective ways.... and show a better side of SS to the many people who won't come near the site in the first place, let alone stay...

Ultimately, one of the big challenges for most people here is to figure out how to transition from being dependent on their parents, to some kind of independent life. I think we could do a better job of helping each other figure out how to do that... on a path not only of "survival," but actually doing things we each want to do.

I think that's a reasonable goal... living a good life... but figuring out how isn't necessarily a simple task.

That was more productive... last least it provides a better explanation of where you're coming from.

I think it's worth looking at things like all that as more than "bullshit" and "gibberish." But, it is worth challenging people's ideas, and in fact having one's thinking challenged can be one of the best ways to evolve it...

And school does mess with people. The key is to figure out how to make the most of life despite that... personally and in terms of supporting (or confronting) others. PirateSadhugScratchchin

Irrelevant to what I posted:See, productive criticism leads to walls of text. I call it the General Relativity Theory of Brain.


RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - TheCancer - 10-06-2014 02:35 AM

I'm more worried about how moderate Student Voice seems at least by glancing over their online presence and the lack of furious immaturity on these threads.

The lack of?


RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - TheCancer - 10-06-2014 03:03 AM

Yes. Wasn't there a time when these threads were littered with teen angst and profanity laden diatribes almost completely devoid of meaning? This place used to roll like an over-crowded ninth grade behavior unit. Now it's like a bunch of grannies at a foldables workshop.


RE: [split] How different is College from High School? - brainiac3397 - 10-06-2014 03:12 AM

Lack of immaturity on SS?

Hrm....
Hrm....

Interesting...

The hugbox and overall pussifying of the Internet have dulled a great many teen minds.
