    ive noticed some attitudes changing and recently it seems like more and more people are acting like the fools do over at pirate. i dont go to pirate for the fact that one person asks a new-b question and instead of one person just saying search you get 3 pages of fighting over the question and about peoples reaction to the guys reaction about the newb:rolleyes: i must say thank you mods for staying on top of it, but guys honestly give it a break. Arguing only makes both people (even if one is clearly right) sound like morons.

    its more than just that though. some peoples attitudes can be very harsh, and just not as friendly as they used to be. idk maybe its just me?

    Okay, before this gets out of hand, I'm gonna break the code of silence and let everyone in on a little secret........

    MIKE AND TSGB WERE ONLY JOKING AROUND IN AN ATTEMPT TO SPICE UP THE LOUNGE A BIT

    I was all for it, but another Mod took exception and dealt with it. And when another Mod makes a call, I'll back him up 100%.

    Attitudes are often cyclical here at CK5. It seems that when you get a bunch of new guys hanging around, the overall mood is a little more polite and gracious. As they noobs get more established, they start to get a little more attitude and feel comfortable stirring the pot.......

    Plus people in general are more bitchy in the winter, I find.

    i know its not in the same league, and the mods dont let it get that way which is a good thing. i find people are bitchy on the internet altough im sure the winter cant help. yeah i guess the newbs come and some of the "established" can be a little abrasive at times. thats all, just an observation

    You don't want other people to think this is a friendly site? Then why didin't you leave it open?????? :confused:





















    HEHE!!! Just kidding. But read it yourself and you'll see that you said the opposite of what you meant.

    I personally like the attitude over on pirate. Ill be honest in saying that I cant stand seeing the same qeustion asked every day here. Its gotten to the point to where I wont even reply with a search comment just because it gets old.
    I wish there was more tech here like there is over on pirate. I still go to both sites the same so dont take this is a CK5 bashing comment just saying theres a few here that have no skin.

    Same here sometimes. But in a million years I wouldn't hang out in the Pirate lounge. It's just moronic.

    the thing is on pirate one guy goes nuts on the newb and then someone goes nuts on him. then you have 3 pages of people fighting. that doesnt help either. i dont like the fact that every day someone asks wht a shackle flip is but im not sure theres much you can do. maybe make it go to a screen that asks "did you search yet" for your first 10 new topics you post in the garage?
