I'm this close to going on hiatus again ._.;;

Didn't even last a month. The video games section in general's just... making me feel like a big asshole by going up to practically every new fucking topic and being like THIS IS AGAINST THE RULES. USE THE SIMPLE QUESTIONS THREAD NEXT TIME. THREAD LOCKED YOU MOTHERFUCKER.

I mean, I guess I don't feel as assholeish as a certain someone *teethgrit* when I was reading through the RMT rules again... but still! I'm really tempted to just rewrite the rules to there to make it seem... nicer and less intimidating. But I feel awkward doing so without anyone's permission.. still, I get the feeling a lot of people are intimidated by the rules because they're so... strict. HAVE TO USE THIS FORMAT. HAVE TO POST CERTAIN THINGS. ABSOLUTELY DO NOT FUCKING POST STATS. PEOPLE WILL BE STRONGLY INFRACTED IF THEY BREAK THESE RULES. NOW GO POST A TEAM OF GARCHOMP/GARCHOMP/GARCHOMP/GARCHOMP/GARCHOMP/GARCHOMP OR ELSE YOU'LL BE BANNED.

... Pflapfdafl. Maybe I'm just best to just be rid of the Pokemon fandom in general. Tbh, I really came back to BMGf for the social areas (blogs and social groups mostly)... I'd ask if I could just do the Artist's Alcove forum and nothing else because the video game forum's making me insane again.. but Wiil's disappeared off to nowhere (AGAIN >_>) and I really don't want to abandon it just like that. >_>

If I had someone else as a co-mod for the section, it'd be better... but me and Will are hardly on good terms right now, so it'd be difficult to ask for help on the section (and um, I can't figure out a way to say "QUIT BEING AN ASSHOLE TO PEOPLE IN THE RMT SECTION!" nicely).. and I can't find myself to ask for help directly to staff for some reason. D:

    Wow, Tina! =/ I personally dislike the RMT thread because of that stupid stat rule, I mean its the "Rate My Team" forum not "Rate My Totally Planned Out Exactly Right Specific Everything Team" forum. I've actually complained about this to Wiil but I'm even gonna go there... >_> But, I think that anyone should be able to post any team that they want, I know that I can generally rate a team with stats, and I mean if you don't want to RMT with stats who said you had to! But, back on topic, if you feel like something should be done, talk to someone about it! Go to Archaic or Misty, any admin will do really. But, I don't know about the whole question thing... that gets on everybodies nerves really... Well, anyway I'm sorry that you feel bad and I hope that you get to feel less asshole-ish! :)))

    EDIT: Ok, I totally wrote all that before I read the last part, but if you'd like help remember I'll always help a friend in need! :)))

    I know what you're talking about. When the rules thread was first written, I was spending a lot of time in the IRC chat, mostly in Wiil's room. I read it, and the first words out of my mouth were "I know you're frustrated, but damn, that's harsh." Then he got in my face about it The nice approach apparently doesn't work too well with him.

    I guess my opinion is this; you're a mod too. If you think something needs to be changed, then change it. Deal with Wiil when he makes a big deal out of it. Be polite, but don't sugar-coat it. If you think he's being an asshole, tell him -- but if he starts yelling at you, don't yell back. That'll make you look more like you're on the right side of things.

    I say you take a break. Forums aren't supposed to stress you out. If that's the case, you should step back and go do something else. Like play Ace Attorney

    I probably would've talked to Will by now about it if he wasn't really... ragetastic.. torwards me lately. His newest (okay so it's a month old) blog both freaked the everlasting fuck out of me and made me laugh insanely. <_< *shiver*

    I'd feel so bad about just abandoning the forums after only less than a month... I'd really just ask to see if I could give up my video games position altogether (Artist's Alcove I'm perfectly fine with, it doesn't get too bad and it's low maitenence most of the time...), but it'd make me feel guilty leaving the place in ruin like that (since all he ever pays attention to is the RMT section -_-;)...

    People who play pokemon tend to be assholes, or really nooby and think you can rmt off of stats (231 is a useless number to me >:O)

    Though you're right. It could be a bit nicer than it isn't now.

    Also, just take it out on some random noob who won't ever comeback. It's better than sex candy

    I'm a professional asshole, not a... regular asshole :(

    lol Chaos. I just don't like the idea of scaring people off from competitive battling. There's a couple select smart people who decide to start their first team on Bulbagarden and get a similar treatment that they would anywhere else (either horrible advice or getting yelled at). I don't want that to happen. ;_;

    ... That and I've been in a sweeter mood lately. Although that's more just of a AAH MUST DRAW A BUNCH OF CUTE ART FOR MY LOVE thing instead of I WANT TO BE NICE TO EVERYONE !! deal.

    I don't see why you can't rate a team with stats. I mean stats are practically the same thing as EV's, I mean they are both numbers! Case: Stat is high, more power! EV is high, more power!

    It's just hard to judge because you have no idea what the numbers mean because they slide for every Pokemon.

    For example, if you tell me your Garchomp has 392 speed and 412 attack... well I have no idea what that means (in fact, that's a random number. I actually do have no idea what that means). But if you say that your Garchomp has 252 Ev's in attack and speed, I can tell you that it is well trained.

    If Will isn't doing his job, he should get the boot. Simple as that. Send him to Smogon where he'll fit in better. If you don't speak up about it though, nothing will happen. Tell the higher ups about it, and present your case to them. Sure, you might come under fire from some, but it's part of the job.

    As for scolding people, well...just don't do it. Merge the thread into simple questions and have done with it. No arguing, no complaining, merge thread only, final destination. Alternatively, have a simple statement on copy/paste, instead of personalizing every one (and raging in the process).

    This is exactly why I think everyone here who's complaining about such and such needs to lighten up. Bad for the blood pressure.

    Oh wowz, you have to take 3 minutes out of your ever sooooo busy day to look on 'pedia! Heavens forbid that! /sarcasm

    Well, main point: wouldn't you rather a non-competitive player feel welcome by doing this and then teach them how to do EV's or they are scared to DAMN DEATH TO POST ANYTHING FOR FEAR OF BEING LIKE DAMNED TO HELL?!? I personally rather the people feel welcome. I mean, thats honestly how I felt after I posted a stat team and I was afraid to post anywhere else after that for fear of the same treatment.

    I actually had a simple EVs/IVs thread idea a while back. Maybe it should be brought up...

    And of course we could rewrite our pages on BP somewhat... though there's a limit to how accessible it is. Eventually it'll just click on everyone.

    The RMT thread has now been made into a new forum section I believe.
