Okay first thing is first, this isn't a rage. It's more of a soapbox moment/whatever. I just want to hit on some key points that have been happening around the forum lately. Shall we start? Let us begin with number one~ 1. Animations. Yeah as general as it sounds, I am actually very tired of seeing the same thing. It's not the animation I am tired of watching, but the style. I see the same exact style amongst new members and it gets highly annoying. This is why I don't tutor anyone except for two individuals. I don't want to see 1000 lil xassissians' roaming around the forum. I am just saying if you guys could develop your own style it would be great. Another note from this, please stop posting "Too short to CNC" It's obviously long enough for a person to get some type of cnc if they decided to post it. Top that if they're a fireworks animator it's bound to be short. Due to the fact making a min+ animation in FW is timing consuming like hell. So if you see a short animation and believe it's too short to cnc, then don't post anything at all. 2. Rage Threads/ Points off-topic threads. Is it just me or did someone just spew vag blood over this section recently. I mean half of the threads are just "what" or plain retarded. Occasionally we get those good rage threads but overall they're just plain stupid. If it's a rage over a lost penny then don't bother posting it. It's just going to make the forum flame you, which results in more vag blood. I am pretty sure EJ, Chris, Flam, etc, is sick of getting tampons to calm down this section. 3. Posting Think before you post. Enough said. 4. Maturity We all act immature here and there at times. I know, I do it too. I am not asking of you to be mature strict young adults 24/7. Just don't be all like asdfsadfsdafasd DOHOHOHOHO in the chat box, or just bring un-necessary drama to the forum. What happens somewhere else, stays somewhere else. 5. Staff/Teamleaders Yeah this is directed to you guys. I feel lately we kind of been too lineate to some of the newer members. I know harligeh wants us not to just dole infarctions too much, but just replace them with warnings. Then there are times where a newer member does something so stupid, that I feel that they deserve an infraction. I am getting sick of these "one word post -inb4warn-" it's like they see it as a joke. There is no reason for them to see a warn as a joke. This only encourages newer members to go about and act the same way. I say we should compromise a more efficient way of giving out infractions.
