I remember we used to have some thread where people would bitch and moan about the state of Buzzjack. I think it's time to do the opposite - what do you think is going right for the forum at the moment? I think there are some pretty obvious things, but how would you express them? What are your own personal experiences regarding this?

I personally, throughout my whole almost seven years of being here, have never felt as close to you as I do now and am just loving all the interesting discussions (half of which were of course initiated by me! kink.gif). Plug.dj has also been just such a vital part of our community experience. I honestly cannot thank you people enough for all the feels and shit.

I feel like we are all constantly growing as posters and as people, and I can definitely get a sense of this about myself.

I feel like we are all opening up so so much lately, perhaps in ways that we didn't before. I almost feel like I can say anything now without feeling TOO awkward about it, or without the fear of being judged or being seen as weird. We are like a big family who are all free to feel comfortable around each other. #cheesefest

What do you think?

All I'm saying is you need to claim ownership of the site tbh. The lounge hasn't been this fun since the Hunger Games laugh.gif

Don't see any reason why not. Oh, apart from there are already 6 of them so maybe you'll have to wait until they step down because they've recently had a f*ck load of posts to moderate : O

Edit: 2 green globs are currently reading the thread. You might be in luck! magic.gif

We are getting closer, but at the same time it makes it easier to alienate any poster who messes up like once. Remember Adam and his Hunger Games spiel? He became a hate figure on the site for weeks. Andrew Froot is also another recent case.

That kind of mentality was what drove me out of my last forum because it led to group cyberbullying, and I promised myself that I would try to help prevent that if I ever became a prominent figure here. Hopefully this means I'm doing a good job.

I just find it hilarious how below that cheesy positive opening post of mine, lies "f*** you Mattias". And isn't it ironic, don't you think? etc

I always feel a little awkward when I write stuff like that here btw. But I really wanted to write it at the time (34 minutes ago).

Forever conflicted lmao

Modifying the lounge.
I would first have to rearrange those cushions in the corner. They just don't look right mellow.gif
But imagine me modifying something tho. I've been in power before for example on wikia (no not just Spinning Adam wiki lmao) but I'm not sure how people would take me being such a serious poster ohmy.gif laugh.gif (nu Silas jk)

The site has had an absurd renaissance that I genuinely would never have called this time two years ago. It must be one of the few forums currently that's actually managed to develop a new community rather than follow the trend of slow decline as a community fades away. It was remarkable enough that it did that once around 2010. I'm shocked it's done so twice. Even if I don't see myself connecting with the new community in the same way I ever connected with the older ones (too positive and lacking in edge for my taste, but it's also a generational thing), I can't fault it as a tightknit and seriously active community at all.

Someone please say something as deep as I did so I won't feel as awkward ok.

Edit: Ok, Tyron came close. Thanks T.

That said if Adam becomes a moderator any time in the next two years I will take it all back and seek to only destroy. He's not quite at the low he was operating on a couple of months ago but CHRIST that posting style's a little too close to 14 y.o. for comfort

You'd be very surprised how serious I would take things tbh.

I disagree - I don't think Buzzjack has ever been the kind of place that called out people who messed up once. You only have to look at Iz's My Little Pony debut and how little anything actually came of that other than a running joke. As a rule, it's only really repeat offenders that get people commenting.

I've been really enjoying BuzzJack this year of course. Lee kickstarting plug.dj back in February has definitely given the site a new lease of life, for a lot of posters who never would have talked on the forum (me and Jake for example) ended up forming bonds and thus seeped onto the forum. It's great seeing such a close community form, reiterated by the fact that I've seen multiple users state that they feel like they can air their issues on here (heck I even did so around a week ago). So yes it's wondrous to see such a thriving community right now with the Lounge really heaving in activity currently (partly down to yourself Mattias of course, haha!).

I would say Buzzjack is lovely to be a part of and much better than Digital Spy. There are some lovely and kind people on here, although as with all forums I can name there are a few users who love bringing people down and sometimes I feel people can be cruel. That's life though!

No no, I imagine you would take it very seriously. I just think your version of very seriously wouldn't be suited to moderation at all any time soon.
