Post  L4MB on Mon Oct 18, 2010 11:00 am

So I have been spending some time around the Bungie forums since I have been sucked back into Halo by Reach, but theres a problem. In addition to all the kids (worse than the MW2 section at IWF), there are sooooo many people and the place is super active. Threads will be on page 2 (might as well be page 200) in a matter of minutes (seriously, like 4 minutes) and there really is no 'community'. There are a million people on at any given time, but there's barely any good stuff going on. There are quite a lot of troll threads which are funny, but the people over there are such idiots and will continue to post angry responses even if the first reply calls out the thread as a troll. I guess I shouldn't complain; it makes for good entertainment.
But it makes it annoying, too. I like to talk video games and discuss stuff with people, but there is really no "community" to speak of. There's people posting stuff, but I don't have any connection with anybody (except Gusterr, who I have run into several times, and that's more a connection from IWF).
Coming back here and to the OT section at IWF is weird. I feel like I actually know some of the people on here and there. Even if it's just basic stuff like who to go to for digital arts advice and who to ask about CSI plotlines (if that ever comes up), it's something more than just a username and avatar.
I guess the point is, this place might be not the most active forum around, and it might be sometimes bogged down in ridiculous feuds with IWF mods and the Exodus forums, but it's still a community in the best sense of the word.
Anyhow, just a little rant/keep it up post from your old friend Lamb.

Its because we're more of a closed community. Think of us as The Upper Class Neighborhood where we choose who's in and who isn't while "official" forums are the projects filled with stupidity and sub par trolls.
