The Lounge mod (and human ohmy.gif) in me is curious about this and I think it's about time to just ask, since it has kind of come up in another thread recently. Basically, to put it another way, are you ever, or were you in the past, embarrassed about your posts? Do you hate reading back at your old posts when you come across them? etc. I guess in a way it's kind of similar to the "Are you ever scared to post?" thread, but this one is specific to posts you have already made and how you feel about those.

I was nervous about making this tbh but then I figured there's nothing cringy about it magic.gif

(I'll write something later)

Oh god I most definitely cringe at some of my old posts on here when I come across them. I think a lot of things I wrote on here aged 16 and below are hard for me to read now. This applies to outside of here too. I just feel really nooby and 'why did I post that' about that stuff. I think I've only really become comfortable in the way I've posted for about the past year or so when I've found my feet here.

All the time for me because sometimes I wonder if there's any point me posting things as I don't really fall into any of the cliques on here, and I don't want to come across as being irrelevant and people not really caring about my posts because I don't know them, if you get me.

idk it's hard to explain but I don't want to seem like I'm trying to fit in and trying too hard

And there's a few others on here that come across as so big headed and overall their cockiness makes me cringe because they act like they're better than everyone else and only talk to people who they're friends with. luckily the majority of people on here are nice though, a forum full of cocky people is a bad place to be.

Yes all the time tbh. I over share a lot which isn't always a bad thing at the time but definitely looking back I think 'oh god why did I say that' laugh.gif I think I've just accepted the fact that I will embarrass my future self and now i just go with it. I have confidence that if I ever totally make a tit of myself, one of you will point it out quickly. I am aware of how embarrassing/irritating I can be though and do try to hold back certain things, like my complete obsession with Commander Lexa/Alycia Debnam Carey , I just think about what I'd think if it was someone else posting what I am etc and that helps to reign it in a bit I guess.

You really shouldn't feel like you don't belong here and need to fit in because you're not in a 'clique' sad.gif The Lounge is an open community (there can be cliqueyness but that's just what happens with groups of friends), just contribute naturally to a topic without trying to fit in, just because it doesn't get a reply doesn't mean people aren't reading.

As for the topic, I've been guilty of being a bit try hard in the early days of coming into The Lounge and feel like I needed to fit in, and just...doing boring posts that didn't really add anything. It's the same in real life, I cringe remembering my younger teenage self and some of the shit I used to say! I tend to limit my posts to when I actually have something to contribute these days rather than for the hell of it, so I'd say 'Not anymore, but I used to feel like that'. Still, I feel like I never made any grave errors in my younger Buzzjack years! (Except that username ph34r.gif)

I have standards.

My heart lies with Lotti <3, although it can never be cause of my friendship with Tim.

I was about to reply to this but Chez has put what I wanted to say better than I would have. Still, I will echo what he says as you never should refrain from posting whatever you want to! If you have something to say then there's always a point in posting things. Admittedly there can be cliquey behaviour here at times but don't let that hold you back from posting. Your 'make a musician' thread has gone down a storm, with the right ideas people will always contribute no matter who you are. This forum really is full of nice people like you say, please don't ever feel like people won't care about what you post because what you post will always be of interest to someone. I hope you do feel like you can settle in here better in time as this really is such a brilliant community!

I used too many emoticons during my first months here in an attempt to make myself seem "friendlier" but I think I've slowly become more comfortable showing my true posting style here as time has passed. Otherwise there's nothing really here for me to cringe at I guess because my shameful adolescent internet activity took place elsewhere.

(***trigger warning: uncharacteristically smiley and constructive life advice***)

Everyone is a tard on the internet aged 16, thankfully my worst moments are elsewhere but it's just about having confidence in your own opinions and an inner voice telling everyone else to f*** off. I wouldn't say I was particularly self-confident but it's a lot easier to look like it online, especially if like me you try to fit at least one big word into a post. Or just spin your inner cringe into a personality trait and make it a positive thing.

Either that or just say you were being ironic, it has the double effect of making the other person look stupid and making you look like a deep comedy genius. I cringe far more at myself in real life, it's a full-body, chilling experience.
