So I just took like... I don't know... 2-3 hours pruning my inbox and realized I used to enjoy coming around here and actually had some friends until I was given THE POWER! In my effort to get this site to be what it used to, I've started getting more and more frustrated with the slightest breaking of any rule, treating any and all "newbies" as if they were the same person repeatedly breaking the smallest rule.
I feel like there is no longer a warm welcome to newcomers, and I know I personally immediately look for what they're doing wrong. And I don't like that... So no more. Tomorrow is Friday, which means no school. I'm going to go back through the rules and completely revise them and put them in the FAQ section. 90% of newbies won't be reading the rules no matter how many places it's posted, so we'll just keep the one.
I hate that I've become so bitter towards this forum, so along with the new rules will be my new attitude. Slowly but surely I developed an elitist "better than thou" persona and I really don't like it. And also out goes the nitpicking. If you guys see something happening you don't like, report it. Otherwise I'll just be chilling unless I notice something EXTREMELY wrong. These are your forums after all, and all the nitpicking I've been doing only serves to make me even more bitter.
So there it is. I'm sorry. Now time to turn over a new leaf.
