I don't use Reddit, and therefor have never heard of it.
By the name, though, I can say that no, I probably do not like it.>>9257
First, your thoughts on the Discord are completely opinion, no basis in fact. Correlation is not causation. The website isn't slowing down because of the Discord, nor has it slowed down because of Ponyville, or efchan, or whatever else splinter sites exist. People who have no intention of posting here anymore going over there and posting is not the catalyst for Ponychan slowing down. Ponychan being an overall toxic community full of political threads and ill-intentioned shitposting is what is slowing the site down, by pushing away the people who actually have something good to contribute to the chan.
Second, all I have seen you do in the past few months when I come back around here IS insult people and complain about the website, which does nothing to make people want to come back. If you really were interested in bringing the community together, you wouldn't insult the people who are leaving it, especially when they are leaving it BECAUSE of people like you insulting them. Also, people change. Just because someone wasn't mod worthy in 2011/12 doesn't mean they are not going to be mod worthy in the future, or that they aren't now, or when they were made into mods. You can talk conspiracy theories about people becoming mods because of brown-nosing and dick sucking, but in the end all you have is your preconceived ideals about those people based on actions or events that are 5 or 6 years old now (or 3 or 4, or even 2. Even 1. But that's a philosophical discussion for another time), and nothing else to show for it.
And finally, third, just because you've been around for a long time does not mean you know what is best for the site. Just because you successfully predicted a few times that something would end badly does not mean you had any knowledge or experience about it that would actually make you anything more than a nay-sayer (though you may have, I'm not assuming you didn't). You know who else has been here since 2011/12 and has seen all the shit that this site has gone through in all this time? Me, I have. Yet I don't go around acting like I know better than everyone else on how to run the site, or acting like my opinion should somehow matter to people jsut because I've been here for so long.
Thony, at least, has experience behind him, and all I've ever seen you do is bandwagon behind what he says. So, if anything, you're predictions were his, and the credit for knowing when something would end badly goes to him, not you.
I don't dislike you, not anymore. When we played Pathfinder together, you were a pretty cool guy. But every time I see you here you are nothing but a salty asshole to everyone, save a very small group of people. In that way, you're no different than the people you claim to dislike for that same reason
ED: this is not me acting like my opinion matters in the slightest. Astra told me to respond, so I responded with what I felt.>>9261
That's nice, Thony, but means very little to me given what I have seen lately.
