Several rants in one.

Call it a compilation journal. :V

Rant 1: I do not like fan characters
I don't mind if someone derrives their style or some of their ideas from a certain series but when someone's being a complete fucking fanboy and blatantly referencing things from the canon, especially mentioning their character in relation to canon characters, it really annoys me. For one thing, they look like a massive tool, and for another, and this is coming from someone who likes a serious RP with a story and character development, it ruins the feel of a story for me. Especially if it's an RP and they're shoehorning all kinds of things in from SOnic into an original universe that might not even involve some of those things. (Example, a magic and fantasy universe having technology and mechs plugged into it for no better reason than someone had to play a fucking Gundam.) I strongly recommend taking their shit to an RP centered around the universe their OCDNS is from, and keeping it FAR AWAY FROM ME.

Rant 2: ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU SPEAK IT?
Fucking illegal aliens running around MY country and they won't even learn our national language? I understand that their country is full of worms and poor rent but is it really that much to ask that everyone who wants to live here not carry this smug attitude that Spanish is so much better than English? What is so goddamn great about their language that they can't learn mine? And I would have the same expectations of someone who moved out of my country and in another, they could at least put forth the effort to learn the native language of the country they're LIVING IN. I know I certainly won't just up and move to Germany without learning how to at least ask where the ladies' room is.

Rant 3: Fuck the gaming industry.
I'm tired of the only games of today being shooters and gritty, realistic adventure games that just happen to involve guns (AKA shooters), what I'd like is for someone to pull their head out of their ass and develop something with an interesting art style that has more than three colors being displayed on screen, two of those being different shades of brown and the third being red, and preferably a fun gameplay mechanic that DIDN'T involve guns. At least Zelda isn't entirely in the shithole now, that being the only good fantasy adventure game left. I remember a simpler time when we play Nintendo games on a purple box and Sony didn't have shit for a library because devent companies actually wanted to develop for Sony and when you weren't missing out on half the game if you didn't pay $30 for DLC, yes THAT time back in the 6th generation when we all dreamed of the potential of the 7th only to have that potential take a shit in our gaping mouths and now the whole thing's just left an aftertaste I can't get past.

Rant 4: Fuck you Notch, fuck you.
Can you possibly make Monecraft run slower, Notch? I think my client is still remotely managable, you might wanna just fix that for me. :l Seriously, what kind of dumbfuck programs an entire game in Java? At some point, didn't someone turn around and say "Wow this game is getting bloated! We should probably translating it to C or some other language that doesn't shit on your processor." But no, they continued to develop the game in Java. I can't wait to see how much more unplayable this game'll be by 1.7. Also trapdoors suck and look ugly in my house.

Rant 5: Communities usually don't involve nuking each other!
It's like some places on the internet *coughwildcritterscough* don't know what acceptable behavior is, and honestly, I think it's pretty damn hard not to. Unless you were raised by complete assholes and never had any other human contact. Really, in a community where flaming and trolling is perfectly acceptable, you have to question the sanity of the admins. Same thing goes for a lot of places on the net. (Minecraft forums, Blockland forums, almost every MMO community, virtually every fan forum I've been to that wasn't Sonic-related) If I only had the time on my hands, I'd just go make my own damn forum and run it the way an admin SHOULD run a community, but I have other things like college to worry about so I can't even attempt to resolve a problem I think is serious. I think it's pretty sad that this should even be a concern, why can't admins just be admins and make communities pleasant places? Well obviously Blockland isn't pleasant becaust Badspot is a complete asshat just like the people he attracts but why can't the Minecraft forum admins actually whip that community into shape, or why can't Windcritters drop their pretentious bullshit about advocating free speech as an excuse to advocate flaming and actually do their damn jobs? I stopped going to a lot of these places because of how horrible the admins are and the lack of community in general is pathetic. With so many badly modded forums, I'm glad I started going to forums with one where people were mature and could talk freely while still being civil human beings.

That's all I can think of right now. :V

I'm talking about the people who just rip a character and use it, I knew some idiot who was a mate of a friend of mine who used Tails as his fursona. How fucking original. I made fun of him constantly.

I like your character. :P

Alright. Just be careful when my IRC nick is Flygon, alright? :p

Of course. One of my friends uses the name Kintobor frequently and I don't mind because his fursona is at least original. (And by original, I mean not a rip off some shit he saw off TV. :V)

Ok, I don't see why not so let me go through each of your points one by one, analyzing them.

1.Can't say I know anything about rp-ing fan characters, so far I only rp-ed original characters.

2.If someone goes abroad for only like, a few months or weeks, he/she may not feel the need to learn the language. How many languages do you know? It takes quite a bit of time and effort to learn one.
Let's try a different question - why do so many people butcher their NATIVE language, especially teenagers ; p Subcultures?

3. We may be very similar in this one. I'm certainly a fan of bright colorful games, manga style. I don't like all these hyper-realistic grainy things as much.

4. From what I remember Notch was a beginner/bad at programming, especially in the beginning. Which is why he chose Java. Java is supposed to be easier than c, and the fact that the game got written in java possibly made mods easier to make, which is one positive side. Obviously java wasn't designed to be resource-efficient or fast, although opinions may vary.

5. Modding/administration of forums, or so I hear, is a tricky business. You need to make everyone happy at the same time, and usually do so in your limited free time, using your own limited resources.
- If you give people too much freedom, there will be flames and trolling
- If you will try to fight such things, they may say you are censoring them and call you a nazzi (amongst other things)
- You may lack the time to read pages and pages of every forum discussion just to decide who is flaming who, and it often will be your subjective judgment anyway
- Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. From my experience this psychological mechanism gets induced pretty often.
The obvious solution is to limit yourself as much as possible, keeping the evil censorship at the required minimum.

Note, I'm not a programmer, so my knowledge of programming-related topics may be erroneous.

I'm talking about the people that live in my country and will not learn my language, like those damn illegal Mexicans that won't even bother to get a green card. I'm not racist, but they could at least learn my fucking language if they're going to live here. >_>

Also I know it takes time to manage a forum, however, it's not about keeping people happy, it's about keeping the peace which does the same thing anyway. If someone called me a Nazi for telling them to shut the fuck up and stop being a douchebag, I'd probably laugh at them and go find another forum. I don't give two shits if they feel insulted, they'll act right on my forums or they can leave. This is the problem I have with a lot of admins, they're pussies. They lose sleep if someone ragequits because they were spanked for acting like a child. People need to grow some balls and get their priorities straight, making sure everyone is acting like a civil human being is more important than losing members. And power doesn't always corrupt, I've been an admin in places before, I know how best to deal with people, and solving problems like flame wars isn't hard, just tell both people to shut up and take it to PMs.
