Nothing has changed here in about a year -- it's why I don't waste time here anymore.

There are no rules. Just self-appointed gatekeepers with nothing better to do and a whole bunch of stagnant, repetitive themes.

I very much like stagnant, repetitive themes!!! I really do. I can read books over and over again, hear the same music for ages and walk the same route day by day and enjoy it every time.

then why don't you post something interesting or of interest to you? wouldn't that be more productive then complaining about it?

i'm not being argumentitive - i'm simply confused. is it someone's job here to post interesting content so that everyone is entertained or should people take responsibilty for their own entertainment and try to better the place instead of complaining about it?

i don't like all of the picture threads either, just as i'm sure other people don't like all of the fiction project threads or all of the questions or quiz threads, or all of the rampant rant threads.

this is why you have a brain and 10 fingers. you make a choice what interests you and who you want to interact with.

it's not that difficult.

if you keep checking what's going on although you really find the board horrible and boring, then it may be a good idea to spin some threads in a different direction to make it worth your while. or maybe really stay away and stop complaining.

GO!
peefs i guess the answer would be no

Actually, I think posting images does give you a lot of information about the poster. It's nice if they talk once in a while too, but everyone communicates in the way they feel most comfortable, and it's not like everyone on a message board wants to reveal things about themselves. They may just want to have some fun. It's their choice, isn't it?

I think that's what Peef was trying to do.

But then her thread was shat upon by boring and repetitive themes.

maybe "say something intelligent" wasn't the best approach. i don't understand the intense picture-poster-hating that's going on here. people that post pictures instead of rants about celebrities are dumb? discussing female products, recipes and sex a sign of intelligence?

Yes, perhaps something like "No Pictures Please - Tell Us About Yourself With Words" may have been a bit less aggressive (just another way to go).

Maybe we could have a forum just for photo themes? Somehow, I don't think that would address the objection, but at least it would be a forum that the chatters could ignore altogether.

Let's get this thread back on track.

On Peef's behalf:

No Photos Please - Tell Us About Yourself With Words.
