Just Lock This Thread Already
pointless and off topic
I Don't Think So.
Some very useful contributions and discussions. Just because one perma-troll is abusing it like he does to the rest of func doesn't negate the purpose.
You've already demonstrated that you go on semi-regular spamming sprees that contribute nothing to the forum other than filling it up with meaningless shitposts. If you wish to make a serious point then form a clear coherent argument and post just that without the tirade of abuse. Otherwise you will keep being treated the same as any other spammer.
So explain something for me Shambler: why does this thread exist?
You stated in the OP: It has come to my attention that there are occasional accusations of the Quake community having some negative social aspects. and then went on to quote a year old post.
So what's the real point? Who's got you so obsessed with this topic? Can't be Rebb. Did someone go on the offensive and start tearing down func in public?
I don't see anything like that at all. Maybe an offhand comment in a podcast or on Discord? Getting warmer? Where and when was the word toxic used? I certainly don't recall reading it anywhere?
You've asked for specifics now I am asking you.
I've left that one up since it had some content.
Yes there are jokes and banter and piss-taking on discord. There are some on here too. Conversely, if someone goes on a pointless shitposting rampage on discord they'd get that moderated too (although the guidelines for a forum and a chat channel are different due to the different speeds of interaction).
Yeah the year old post partly triggered it. Other than that, I dunno. People have occasionally mentioned it on here I'm sure. Sometimes people quote stuff from elsewhere like reddit. It's just sunk into my mind that the community sometimes gets called toxic, and based on that I thought it was worth looking at, it's genuinely nothing more sinister than that, and nothing to be suspicious about. In fact it seems that maybe I've overestimated the "accusation" against the community *shrug*.
I'm positive most critiques are in reaction to a couple of specific people here, not the community as a whole. As far as reddit, I posted there recently and linked back to this thread in case people wanted to add their experiencesor opinions. Every (legitimate) response I read there was very positive toward func. Which is cause for celebration!
The 'sjws' Guy Who Replied There
no beef with you if that's how it was interpreted.
What is this bullshit? (I'm referring to the quote in your OP, not your own thoughts.)
Counterpoint: like I said in general, I just jumped on some random Quake twitch stream, had dudes talking to me and sending me maps, they added me to their Quake discord, and we got matches scheduled and everything.
It all seemed pretty friendly and happy to me.
Disclaimer, I have none of the background on this, nor did I read anything beyond your first post, Shambler. All I'm saying is, SOUNDS LIKE BULLSHIT!
Whoever Is Running The Quake_txt Twitter Account Has Blocked Me
Can that person explain why? I assume he is here or checking this place. I really want to know what I did to offend him so much he blocked me on Twitter.
I don't think it's the quake community really, it's just OTP and Shambler.
Onetruepruple runs Quake_txt
Well since that's said as an anon and someone who doesn't care to post specific examples nor obviously pay attention to my general posting etc within the scene, I'll take that as both a complete lie and typical anon trolling.
So If That Is True
Then please explain yourself, OneTruePurple. I would really like an explanation.
The Humour Is Lost In Text
I think this is the biggest problem. The banter, piss taking etc is fine when you hear it in the quakecast interviews (or the very rare occasion I got to play vermintide with shambler).
But on the forum the tone of the japes is lost and all you get is butthurt instead. The most bantery people here are OTP and Shambler and this may be why they get mentioned specifically moreso than anyone else.
Anyone got a problem with Shambler, send them to me. I'll sort 'em out. What the fuck, people.
Yes I Have A Problem
With Shamblers. They’re too damn hard and you can’t ever get the good guns before facing them 😠
But they're so cute and fuzzy!
Do The Shambler Dance
it's the only way
What 5th Said
The "quake.txt" twitter is lame because it's just a butthurt boomer's personal account, not a light-hearted meme account like people would expect from a ".txt" account. Nobody wants to follow something for memes and then get blocked for disagreeing about Dusk or something.
Warning: This is a positive resolution / solution thread, not a beef thread. You wanna beef, go elsewhere.
My Post Didn't Age Well
I guess the shambler dance is now cancelled post-copper release. :(
