I can’t stand it any more!

category: general [glöplog]
Every time I visit Pouet these days I get an intensly depressing feeling wash over me.
Being a scener, discussing an interest is one thing, but all these inane BBS posts, the private jokes in threads, the incessant regurgitation of phrases like “we have x that can beat your x” and all the infantile nonsense and virtual attitude that so many of you guys spend hours thinking, writing, reading and probably dreaming about is downright disturbing!

In fairness, there have been some humorous threads and some engaging and stimulating discussions on Pouet and the scene was once a major inspiration in my life, but this banal bullshit is freaking me out! I can’t bare it any longer and can’t bare the thought of growing any older watching and interacting with this community of socially and intellectually inadequate losers who are controlling the scene right now.

I really don’t belong here and I don’t want to belong here. If I choose to involve myself with demos, graphics or whatever, it will not be as a “scener”. I’m through and I'd advice anyone who respects themselves to do the same!

Yes, and we all know when it began ...

... it all started in the moment when a jokeprod won the democompo of the most prostigious demoparty and signalled the takeover of the inanene and childish.

What would the scene be without fun and sillyness? It has been that way since the very beginning.

What would the scene be without DRUGS?!

wade: get a grip - the people writing bullshit and acting like kids on pouet aren't controlling the scene at all, or anything else for that matter. they are just being little bitches but they don't contribute (thank god i'd say).

we all know who the real sceners are and we all know who are stupid gits - let that be enough.

Up until I saw "Wade" I thought this was yet another Optimus thread..

Whining pussies! Then quit the scene, just do it. But stop blaming the scene for leaving it, it might be you who got to soft for it, haha.
Stop overestimating the influence of the "winnerdemo". Surely it lacks advanced effects, but just what is so bad about it? It was meant to be offending and a lot of drunken sceners seemed to like that, so what?
Still, I think Wade is generally right. But what are "good" pouet-topics in your opinion? Do you mean something like "What is your favorite rendering method?"-topic? Because that is very much scene related.

funny how a simple webforum can change people's lives and thinking.

Wade, you are the sound of consistency and reason here. The fact that just about everyone's opinions (mine included) are different from yours is unimportant. Healthy forums need diversity.
Please abstain from giving up.

Don't you see it Dlz, almost everyone here is turning into Optimus and that's so damn disturbing!

Good luck to everyone who finds enjoyment in what you're doing here, in whichever way pleases you. There's no resentment on my part, but the scene (newschool, oldschool and playschool) has occupied way too much of my time and cost me too many opportunities already.

No offence Optimus, but your Z post frightened the hell out of me!

Hello Optimus!

>Every time I visit Pouet these days I get an intensly depressing feeling wash over me.

Surprisingly, I get the same feeling all over again, day by day!

Someone told me that my life will remain sad for ever if I keep visiting Pouet in that insane manner. The same clouds of depression. I remember..

I don't think I am ready to leave now, but I should make that soon. Gargaj offered a beer to the person that will keep me away but I think he/she(!) should deserve a whole crate of beer or a big truck full of beer. At the end, I guess I will just decide to leave alone. And if I don't do this, you might miss me for 9 months, when the greek army calls me at the beginning of 2005. Another short change in my life I am willing to pass..

Even if I leave the place, what about the other trolls anyways?

p.s. I guess I am just addicted to the net.

Optimus: I'm being dead serious here. A lot of people laugh and joke about it, but if that's how you feel you need to get out of all this NOW! Not tomorrow, not next week, but right now! If you're addicted to the net find a forum that will motivate and teach you to do more fulfilling things with your life: knowledge, dating, working out, fashion, anything that will steer you in a new direction.

Because one day you will be lying on your death bed and when your life flashes before your eyes all you will see is Pouet logos and avatars. You'll look back and wonder why you never seized the chance to find your dream girl or your dream job, or achieved anything you can feel proud of.

Then why are you here, whinning and begging for a perfect Pouet community?
added on the 2004-05-14 01:32:26 by Optimonk Optimonk
Anyone willing to create a pouet2 with moderated forums (no degrading porn pics), and a size limit on posts? =P

The idea really is quite tantalizing, as this place has truly degraded into a playground for infantile bickering.

Optimus: I'm not. The current state of Pouet has just brought me to a realisation I should've made long ago. Anyway, I'm starting to sound like a hypocrite now continuing this thread, so I'm out of here.
