I find any place, especially on the internet, that gets popular tends to be proportionately filled with idiots and cunts who yell loudest.
I used to go to FunnyJunk for all my funny pictures but found the place to be filled with retards, went to Imgur instead.
I used to go to Imgur for all my funny pictures but found the place to be filled with retards, went to 9gag instead.
I used to go to 9gag for all my funny pictures but found the place to be filled with retards, went to Reddit instead.
Now I'm sitting here wondering why the fuck I'm hanging out with all these retards?
I hate Serenes because despite being around for years I never fell in with the popular kids, probably not helped by my attitude half of the time and my lack of ability to aptly contribute to the communities I wanted to be apart of, so over-time I became a fence-sitter and that didn't really help the situation any further.
I haven't mentioned it yet, but the ultimate reason as to why I left was because someone was asking for fixes on their mugs for a hack, I privately messaged him with a couple fixes which he then put up and slowly more people began adding their help towards it. For fun I posted a couple of non-serious fixes in the topic directly whilst still private-messaging him ones I took a little more seriously, people called me out for crap and I gave shit back.
Most of those people wouldn't have said shit if that one person didn't start helping, everyone's time is so important, so precious. It took me like, an hour to help out and re-do a single of his mugs and it's still being used as the main character, so fuck it?
It's why despite my respect for their craft I have an underlying resetment of the spriters on Serenes because they've formed this click clique that just self inflates their ego. I was never a good spriter, never really a good anything but I've been around long enough to enjoy the little pockets of places that I felt were a lot nicer to be apart of. It's why I avoided FESS and FEPlanet which were the bigger communities.
There's also those times where Aeo and others would enter the splicing contest whenever I entered. I thought I was just being paranoid until Merc mentioned that exact thing to Aeo as she recorded herself doing the sprite. Made me chuckle.
As for Fire Emblem specifically, it's attracting more of the Animu crowd, so look forward to all your bishi and waifu posts from here on. I know someone said earlier that Fire Emblem has always been anime inspired but I've never really seen that correlation until now. Soon there'll be body pillows and those mouse-mats with the tits on them.
Can't be fucked checking if this shit makes sense, I've got JPN music to weeb to and MMO raids to ruin as a half-arsed DPS.
