The various troglodytes of this forum find solace in the multitude of labels they proliferate. You are right in that the issue is more than just the various tags and descriptors that they use; it lies in the fact that these veritable cromagnons and their writings have depreciated and decayed in astronomic degrees for the last few years.

As I write this I hear the crowing of my neighbors lone rooster, a sound that I have heard for many days at this point. I can be rather assured in saying that the crowing of a rooster is a representative in my steady-state world - someplace where I feel at ease due to routine and the homogeneity of experience. The simians of this forum also vie for routine and safety in their own experience, which has led to such a vast congregation of them amassing within the Casual section. Of course, this need for routine has led to other problems, most notably the perpetuation of GMs who are propped up solely by their own cliques or the general lack of originality or experimentation within roleplay ideas, but the concentration of so many roleplayers within the Casual section is most pertinent to this discussion.

Chimps are naturally social animals, which means they wish to stick within groups of their own kind, for reasons of safety, protections, mating, food, etc., yet this also means they adhere to social hierarchies. The chimp who has climbed onto the branches of the trees sees himself as better than one who can only climb upon fallen logs, yet is intimidated by the branches further up, where his more confident brothers play. But what happens when too many chimps climb onto his level? Well, the ape wishes to distinguish himself once more, so he sees fit to climb one branch higher. There! He is now above the majority of his brothers once more! Of course, he is not at the level of his brothers on the canopy further up, but for now he is content - he has not strayed far from his place of comfort, but he still feels himself superior than most.

In general, I agree with Deadbeat regarding the stagnation of the sections as well as the general poopoo-fication of the boards. Yet perhaps it is not cowardice that stops these primates, but rather complacency and laziness.
lol rip
UwU the plot thiccens
Being involved and being directly involved are two different things. Being not involved in the slightest would imply a lack of all involvement, information, and connection. I was involved the moment I was dragged into the situation . . . Being involved and being directly involved are two different things. Being not involved in the slightest would imply a lack of all involvement, information, and connection. I was involved the moment I was dragged into the situation. I think you misunderstand what I mean by confrontation; that or you and I have two different definitions of confrontation. Merriam-Webster describes it as “to face especially in challenge” and Cambridge describes it as “to deal with a difficult problem, situation, or person” – both of these definitions describe the situation.

. . .

An indirect and direct confrontation may be different, but both can cause uncomfortable feelings to be unearthed. Both are still objectively confrontations. You obviously think direct confrontation is better and I don’t entirely disagree, but in this situation I felt an indirect one was better for all parties involved. What is done is done, I can’t lament over what would happen if I had confronted it directly instead.


dude it's the internet not the palace of versailles there's no need for all this pseudo-intrigue

lel
lol u guys are overthinking things xD

I think some blood and a firm handshake afterwards is better than infinitely throwing shade in here without ever coming to a resolution, only coming to the conclusion that 'the other side is a retard and I'm mucho smart' but hey, what do I know. The real bother here is that people not involved with the given situation are commenting on it as though they were and are, behind the scenes, saying shit that I find to be pretty damn disrespectful - if you said them to their face, that'd earn so much more respect, but here we are.


its just more funny to throw shade, lol
@Mariana Collie

oh i guess that was lost in translation but it's not meant to be the end of a sentence. i meant as in not!Earth or not!Japan, but i guess it was obfuscated by how i left "(Geographic Area)" there to leave it open to interpretation.

what a pristine argument. whatever say what you will it still gets me flustered at the state of this site.
When someone makes an interest check that explicitly lists so much of its information yet is still unable to properly convey the premise of the rp aside from "its uhhh anime in blahblahblah or something i guess".

And then they add inane jargon and blatant not!(Geographic Area) to inflate it more than a dead pig that's been left out in the sun for a few days.

And THEN the fact that people will probably buy into this sort of drivel hook, line, and stinker.

How far we have strayed from the path of literary introspection and actual effort being put into our roleplays.
@SleepingSilence

Eh . . . 4/10 - not bad, but not too good, either

The instrumentation is varied but perhaps to a fault. It definitely feels like it should be a powerful background track, but there isn't any real focus on one instrument to serve as the support. This leads to the beat feeling flaky and uninteresting as all these different tones compete for the listener's attention. Add to that the fact that most rap songs are very reliant on their beats to provide support, groove, tempo, catch the listeners attention, etc., the lack of any real consistency or strength in the instrumentation definitely undermines the potential of the song.

The vocals aren't really my cup of tea either but I do appreciate the varied inflections of the voice and the concerted effort to actually try and rap. I think that the meter of the piece is too brief, which results in the phrases becoming choppy with strange pauses that feel like they come too early. I also think that the vocalist's enunciation could use work, as due to his speed it becomes difficult to understand what he's saying (the fact that alot of the things he's talking are often based on strange and otherwise disconnected topics/ideas doesn't help either)
