    My opinion is simply "meh." Well, because it gets boring after awhile and .....

    Two things.

    1. I'm never seen so many Star Wars fans bash Star Wars to death. I mean what is up with that? I know people have their own opinions and stuff but this is way overboard in the sense of bashing. I don't even tread in the prequel forums.

    2. There's alot of bitter individuals centered in one forum which will remain nameless. If you are a newbie, god help ya. :p

    Now, I find FanForce to be a nice spot for posting. I don't know, I just find it comfortable. It's not very bitter in here. I don't see a lot of angry people in here.

    I try to avoid the JC side at all costs.

    If theer is something specific I'm looking for I'll head for that, but the only JC forum thats in my Favourites list is Costuming & Props.

    The attitude from a lot is childish, a good number of the more visible mods are less than helpful, or cynical beyond trust.

    Certainly there are some good people over there, but the stench from the rest covers up the roses.

    I basically stick to here on AGC, though I have to admit I have become an addict to the Role-Playing games...but some of the people on them are SO stupid sometimes. I also sometimes go to the Classic Trilogy page, which has some interesting stuff in it, sometimes, though many threads are better avoided! And of course I was in the JC House Cup, though I still think it is odd that a Star Wars site had a Harry Potter competition!

    Plus I have a fan fic on the after the saga fan fiction board (shamelessly screams the title "LIMINAL", hoping to find someone who will read it!)

    So, anyways, I find some people on the boards are just crazy, but a lot of them are pretty cool. It's the people that make the boards what they are, and you quickly learn to avoid the crazies!!!!!

    Well, some are quite imature, but often nothing beats a good debate. However bashing is not appreciated, though I don't think it can be avoided.

    I post: Lit, ACG, EUC, RPG, German General, Games, Classic Trilogy...and occasionaly South Africa!

    i think a lot of the people in the JC part act like childish, and gets on my nerves a lot. FF is good, but I've yet to be able to go to a meeting. :(

    You are all fantastic people and that is why you all get along so well. It is sad that there is so much of flaming and bashing in some forums in the AC. I only venture into the collecting forum and that is it for me.

    FF can be cool, but often boring when i'm not around. Lit's okay.

    Yes, Adam...we all spend our nights twiddling our thumbs and going "Where is Adam? This place is so dead without him!" ;) :p

    I love FanForce. I may stray into the JC when I've nothing better to do, but most of the people there are, well, kids. It's very cliquish...

    ACG = teh best forum EVER! :D

    I don't like the narrow mindnes of certain people, and some of newer users are anoying, they should do more lurking and reading before posting.

    I love the FF forums and fanfic, Lit can be interesting when a decent discussion gets going. EUC has its ups and downs, but can be quite fun.

    With that kind of attitude, you just might make it back into my sig. What i emant was that this place is great, but prone to humourless-droughts. yeah.

    Oh, the highlight of my life! To make it into Adam's sig...is there anything else so prestigous, so worthy of a lifelong pursuit?

    There...is that sarcastic and attidutinal (yeah, that's not a word!) for ya?? :p

    Boy, I love FanForce...where else could you get away with saying something like that and not be banned for flaming?

    Speaking on the whole JC thing, they're ripping us off! They have this "HANG THE OPPM!!!" thread, and they're forming this little club and stuff trying to kill OPPM. Of course, OPPM has made an appearance [face_devil] , but still...OPPM hatred has spread across the boards, apparently. I feel kinda sad, cause it isn't an ACG thing anymore...it's like we lost something. I say we should raid the thread! I wonder how they picked up on the OPPM acronym, anyways *glances over at DOY* ;)

    Why is everyone looking at me? :p

    I'll never forget the guy who when directed to the Hate Thread said "What the hell is that doing in Canada?" :p

    I almost cried. It's our acronym. :p

    Not to burst your guys' bubble, but we were using "OPPM" years ago on our gaming messageboard... it was as hated then as it is now!! :)

    On the TFN boards issue, well I enjoy reading them for the most part... for most of the boards I go to on a regular basis I have an unconcious "mental-block" for posters that are nothing but idiots, I just simply ignore what they have to say, unless it takes up more than 5 or so lines, then I will read it just in case they have something intelligent to say... ;) Although those types of people are few and far between, thankfully.

    They're rare cause they're all here in Eastern Canada...like our AT-ST_Driver, for instance. You can learn a lot from his post! ;)


    OPPM IS MINE!! I HAD HIM FIRST!!!! HE'S MY ACRONYM! DARN YOU AND YOUR GAMING BOARDS! DARN THEM!!!

    (was that intelligent enough, or do I need to dig deeper? ;) lol...)

    EDIT: I just re-read my post above, and what I meant was that the "un" intelligent-flame-baiting-troll posters are generally few and far between, thankfully... not the intelligent ones! There are plenty of those around!!! :)
