QUESTION ABOUT FEARNETS COMMUNITY PAST

QUESTION ABOUT FEARNETS COMMUNITY PAST

klownz's picture

I have just been rummaging round the Asian horror discussion board reading over old threads & posting comments & something i noticed got me curious i spoted a member from about 5 years ago who had made about 3 times as many comments than what i have made ....... infact he had made almost as many fuckin comments as HF!

SO i went & had a look in the section where it tells you who has made the most comments whos got the most poins & all that shit & for some reason this fella isnt there & hasnt got more points than me ...... all this doesnt matter BUT what does matter is why this person is no longer here? this guy must have spent alot of time here & must have contributed a shit load .......... people like that dont just up & leave (usually) but i have noticed a few members profiles like this

i have only been here about a year so i was wondering if some of the old skool members could shed a bit of light on old fearnet & where things have been fucking up ALSO is the points thing a newish addition to fear? because this guys profile i seen should have had fucking loads of points, i know the points dont matter but in this case its got me scratching my head

What I have noticed and deduced from seeing similar things . . . (for awhile, I emailed peeps that looked like they had been good people who "disappeared" trying to nudge them back) . . . and I think what happened is that if you are INACTIVE for too long, you KEEP the "years" but lose the points, comments etc. The only reason I am number one in points is because the gracious, funny sweet lady who used to be number one and another who had been number two closed their accounts. They were miles ahead and I didnt really care about points. I was just hanging out.

I HAVE noticed in the past year that about 4 TROLLS from way back in the day before my time tried to come back, one fairly recently and apparently FEARnet had a lot of ugly shit people on the boards at one point. These guys wanted to bring that attitude back but were hit back by the community and left. Trolls, like bullies, thrive better when they can get a little support group of "cool" trolls to support them.

its not so much the points am intrested in they were just something that indicated to me that something is a miss, your INACTIVITY theory makes sense though ............ i was just wondering if some major changes were made that chased people out ......... as for me i will never delete my account! I might get pissed of or tired of commenting or what ever else ............ thats why am so suprised that people who have made 3 or 4 times as many comments as me have dissapeared of the face of the earth!

AS LONG AS I LIKE & RESEARCH/COLLECT HORROR I WILL ALWAYS BE AROUND HORROR FORUMS!

Yeah, the last guy started a discussion and said he was an old timer from way back and gave a shout to a list of names, none of whom were here anymore and bragged how much of a "pain in the ass" he was to people and how he was going to bring the house down again. Well, I made a remark and others jumped in and it escalated and that was his last day here. Dont even remember his name now. Real jackass.

Occasionally I get weary. Sometimes mostly if we start getting noobie trolls. In life it would just take a second, on the net its a whole irritating deal if the community doesnt jump in. But as you said, as long as there is horror, I will be popping in. And luckily there are a few great people from all over that being here is almost like hanging out with them, lol. And sometimes this place can get funny as hell.

I missed the old days.After the site went through a major over haul a lot of the members lost contact with one another when their friendslist was erased.After that their was a bit of a mass exodus.Now the site seems dead compared to the first couple of years.
