Britney's Back! :D

#1 Post by Rozume » Mon Jul 20, 2015 7:34 pm

except my name isn't britney

Hey guys, it's Roz here. Most of you here probably don't remember me, or even know me, or even noticed I was gone, but I'm some chick who pitched some neat ideas in the ideas thread (all of which have a 99.9% chance of never being made, even the ones I said I'll make for realsies). I also made a short and crappy NaNoRenO VN, which I have to say is mediocre at best and cringe-worthy at worse. But hey, you gotta suck before you can get good right?

I also have a handful of art requests that are waaaayy overdue but I probably won't fill any of them, sorry guys

Anyway, I left the community for some time due to... certain reasons. I really don't want to stir up some unnecessary drama, since this might be a bit of a landmine for some people, but I feel it needs to be said: I left because I noticed that some people in the community could not handle opinions that differ from their own. In addition, said people seemed to endorse a single viewpoint and would instantly dismiss those that didn't appeal to their politics or their ideology. Now I don't want know if this is such a problem now and I don't want to spark a debate or anything, but if you're interested in discussing things with me, we can do it over PM or I can give you my skype; however, I feel this is important for anyone, developer or no, to learn how to handle opinions that differ from their own. Because honestly, if the EVN community wants to actually grow, it also has to learn to accept differences even if those differences may be hard to tolerate.

I think it's safe to say that this applies to life in general. We live in vast and diverse world with different people and different viewpoints, we must learn to acknowledge our differences and similarities and really understand them. Furthermore, we must allow ourselves to be challenged if we want to grow as individuals.

But I'll get off my soapbox for now.

Welcome back! From a pragmatic perpsective, forum arguments can (and usually do) chew up a ton of time that could have been used for development. I try to weigh discussions before even joining them, which is why I may come off as a bit of a lurker.

I have noticed that people on here really do enjoy debating/arguing, which is understandable since they're all discussing things they're passionate about. A lot of the time I stay out of it, because as tyrantauranox already said, arguing with strangers online does tend to eat up a good bit of time that could have been spent more productively.

Also... there have been SO many times where I've read debates on here, and agreed with both sides, because both sides had valid points. There are so many things that are subjective, and there is no black and white; things tend to be a lot more colorful and deep than just yes/no, right/wrong, true/false. I think that pointing this out to people can be a waste of time, though, especially if they're argumentative strangers lurking the internet.

Anyways, hello again! It's great to see back! I totally remember you, Munster academy was fun and you should be proud :D

Welcome back, I'm pretty sure I've seen you in a lot of threads, since I recognized your avatar at first sight!

It's a good reason to leave if you don't feel "comfortable" with the community (or part of it), but it's good to see that, even with that, you still wanted to come back!
