Does anyone want to sell me some cheese and crackers?
Well it seems there are very few reasons to get on NG anymore ... I never really play the games, the movies are uninspired, better music and art can be found elsewhere ... but even the most entertaining part of the site (BBS) is just dull, repetitious, and mindless. If it isn't a thread about sex, depression, or angst, it's a circlejerk.
And I don't mean anything bad towards the mods and older regulars, but it really seems like the forum is a place for a handful of people to throw inside jokes around without including newer users ... sometimes even stigmatizing them. It's gotten to the point where I can predict what a thread will be about and who will post in it just based on the OP's name. I get it, NG was started as a small community and that is perhaps its destiny. I just don't like seeing the same 10-20 people argue about the same thing every week. Why not include a newbie into the discussion? Where are the opinions we haven't heard yet?
The problem is NG was centralized around the idea that the older your account, the more valid your opinion. This is paired with the rigorous leveling system which MOST people would be discouraged from. Think about it. Why would someone new to the site want to spend months in order to be listened to in the forum? And perhaps after the redesign, the cliques really began to stick out - and I know because I was a part of them.
This is the community now. It's like a highschool:
1. Mods & friends of Mods who communicate only with each other. (preps)
2. Sex/Porn addicts who post for the sake of posting. (nerds)
3. Depressed teenagers who complain and expect the above two to care about them. (emos/goths)
4. People who post to make their dick feel bigger *cough* Politics. (jocks)
5. The rest who are occasionally online but ignored by everyone. (riff raff)
Given how much I hated high school until senior year, I guess it makes sense why I haven't been on as lately xD.
The reason I joined NG was because the forum was fun and entertaining ... sometimes challenging. But it's not fun anymore and everyone acts like idiots. So that and the fact that most of my friends have either left or become inactive have led me to decide I will be going dark until further notice!
I'm not telling anyone else to leave. If you're having fun, cool! More power to you :) I just don't find the site appealing anymore, and if you feel the same, you should leave too. Just a suggestion. There are PLENTY of communities I've found online that are more receiving of people and are more diverse in users ... as in they have *cough* other females *cough* and actual adults. I can only take so much anarchy and lack of morals for so long :(
To contact me, you can send a friend request to RadicalJane @ Skype (tell me your NG name or I won't add you), and from there whatever else. If you don't have Skype, send me a PM.
Well ... not yet. But this summer I'll have the chance to see the film world in preparation for my directing career (hopefully LOL). I'm not going to be an intern, more like an intern's intern for Legendary Pictures and possibly Pixar. Depending on how plans turn out this year, might even have the opportunity to do something similar for HBO. Obviously my girlfriend will be coming along and may find even more use for exploring the area. At this rate, my first movie will be done in 2016! LOL
And yes I am still partially MIA :(
Just realized I wasn't really paying attention to messages etc. so sorry if it seemed like I was ignoring you!
But seriously, NG and especially the BBS is getting damn boring.
Also, July = Vegas for a week = NG Vegas Meet???????????????????? :D
Ok carry on.
So I've got a lot going on right now ... some awesome things, some not so awesome things! As far as the awesome things go, I've got a new job, got a more stable schedule, and my gf is moving in :D!! But the not so awesome things are taking up more of my time so NG yet again gets pushed to the bottom of my priorities lol.
If you need to get a hold of me just HMU on Skype or something. I'm on late usually if not using my iPhone!
Also, where has this song been all my life!!!!

If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, "Love your neighbor and hate your enemy." But, I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you ...
