It's only the first week of university, yet it's a lot of work, nonetheless. Albeit, I'm still managing. In fact, I've decided to schedule my activity from now on. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, you will see me for a while, with at least a post available for everyone whom I am involved in a topic with. Otherwise, I'll be posting late at night. Also bear with me that university is (and is supposed to be) one hell of an experience, which I'm going to take advantage of...somehow. Anyways, regardless of this, I'm still here for you guys and gals, which brings me to my next topic.
I've read all of the evaluations about the recent problems on this site, and conclude that I was once one of them, though I am certain of one thing. You see, it's not just me who has been a pain to at least one other person in the past. To those of you who feel like you are a problem to the site after reading the same important topics I have, there's still always time to redeem yourself, and at the moment, that's what I'm here for. Why am I saying this? Well, I believe one person can make a difference, and so if I can at least confess to being a past issue to this site, yet vow to change for the greater good, so can you. This site wasn't just meant to be a safe haven, after all; it's a funhouse too. You meet awesome people here, especially the staff.
With this being said everyone, if you ever need some company, I'm here for you. I was once a moderator here, and therefore understand what it's like to deal with complaints or other issues held on this site. I've met some amazing people here too (you know who you are), and they will probably aid you, as well. I know I've made a topic or two in the past claiming that I may leave permanently, but honestly, I love this place too much. Oh, and thank Shunsuke (Nikolai Dixon) for me please. I never said this, but he referred me here, and without him, I would've never met this awesome community.
Zack made a thoroughly detailed topic recently about the negativity around here, and it's quite simple to deal with, everyone. Just respect each other, and be inclusive. I know I've ignored this fact multiple times before, but have nevertheless stuck it in my mind now.
May I also take this time to honour others:
Chaotic Rumble: Unbelievably nice guy. He's on a hiatus himself, currently, but if you see him, please introduce yourself or at least initiate a conversation with him. You'll learn in due time that having him as a friend here is a huge benefit.
Godfray: I once called her a sexist term out of sheer anger once, and still regret it to this day. She's such a welcoming young lady who cares for everyone. When I joined the site, she offered to be my buddy. Now, we're close friends, and I can always assure myself that I have someone to go to when I'm down.
Alyia: Initially, I helped this woman find her way through the site, and surely she has proven that I have helped someone the site should applaud. I GUARANTEE you that she will help ANYONE with ANY issue. It's freaky how caring she is. Trust me.
Fire King Ardere: Have some bad blood towards a certain individual? He's your best man.
Elizabeth: Happy faces all around. That's her superpower. Take advantage of it.
Elijah: Shipping King. Will give you advice on who to be with if you feel IC relationships are the way to go. Oh, and he's cool, just like the others.
Aedre: She has all of the qualities I have listed already about the other honourable mentions, though I am not aware of her shipping capabilities. Certainly another helping hand though.
Hikachu: Possibly the sweetest girl on the site. Go to her if you need a little spiritual boost.
Seijin: I know his appearances in the CB are rare, but he made the site so you can meet other great people such as the ones I've mentioned already. Thank him for giving you all these kind-hearted people, as he is an addition to that list.
Lord Frederik: He has just gone on a hiatus too, but the dude is just cool and funny. When you get the chance, talk to him. Please.
Despair: His username definitely does not define his personality. The guy can get weird, but in a respectful and cool sense. Not to mention he's supportive and very inclusive too. Please give him a chance.
Rita: Honestly don't know what she goes by on this site anymore, but she is still just as nice as the others I've mentioned. Just give her some of your time and attention if you need some company. I assure you, it will be worthwhile.
Kirahunter: One of the crazy, yet funny guys on this site. Please join the CB whenever he's there.
Heero: Just like Kirahunter
Staff Team: Altogether, these guys are outstanding. They shouldn't be going through any troubles, at all. Instead of complaining to them, simply give them your opinions privately, and you'll do fine. Heck, if I've learned anything about these guys, it's that they love feedback, and tend to assure the people who don't trample on them have loads of fun. Appreciate what they offer you to the utmost.
WOW! Okay. It seems I have made quite the long list of honourable mentions, but for a good reason: These are just some of the people you can meet to have a great time here. Stop the negativity, and take advantage of at least the nicer people surrounding you if you have a problem. You will get help, and you will have fun if you just consider the countless, amusing activities and opportunities the site offers. Trust me, I was the worse when it came to this subject, which is why I have explained the issue just now. If you have other desires for the site, then let me quote Shia LaBoeuf for a moment:
"Don't let your dreams be dreams. JUST DO IT!"
That was unnecessary, but still! Enjoy every second you get to commit here instead of spreading crap all over this site like a dog with diarrhea. It's not worth it. This site is a funhouse, like I said before, a does not need a party pooper killing their vibe.
This aside (though hopefully kept in the minds of all who read this), I will be really busy, but only socially. To those who have topics with me, I will be there to respond to your posts in short notice. Just don't expect the frequency of my replies to be as fast as they used to be.
P.S. On a final note, if you still wish to continue spreading negativity on this site, even if I don't know you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
Just kidding, though you will still be frowned upon and possibly reported to staff.
All the best to everyone!
