Just wondering what other sites are there? I joined GS when people started leaving, the few people there were frequent when I was here seem to have gone. So what other sites with gaming discussions are there?

IGN's forum layout just bothers me. Don't know why.

EDIT: And apparently I'm IP banned from one of the boards....don't even have an account there...

You always seem to be taking some very serious digs at this community. You should seriously leave if you feel as strong a hate as you seem to harbor.

In what ways?
#12 Posted by Jackc8 (8500 posts) -

IGN is pretty good. The Vestibule is okay, though there's WAY too many "clever" aka utterly pointless comments on there, and WAY too many 14 year old virgins desperately trying to pretend they're 18 year old studs. Their console boards are about like here and their general gaming is far more dead and off-topic than here.

But there's a ton more people there.

IGN has far more site traffic and a larger community than this place. GS keeps getting smaller and smaller, barely anyone posts in the primary games section anymore. Same goes for the unions, the only 2 popular sections of this site are SW (which is stupid) and OT (which is also sometimes stupid).

On IGN just about every section is full and the community is better, no one throws out stupid insults or anything like that. They also get the news first and dev interviews. What site one finds better is subjective, but when it comes to size, popularity, growth, and influence IGN is number 1.

I think he needs to realize that some will not like him or others for personal reasons relating to themselves and their specific posts and behavior, and not necessarily because of the groups they identify with.

I only really get upset when there are religious threads, the community here hates religious people and they spread nothing but lies about them. My religious beliefs are important to me, so surely you can understand why some people get mad when others attack them.

IMO religious threads should abide by a stricter TOU, or just not allow them to make them at all.

Finally something I can actually agree with you on.

I mainly came here for the unions, but not many people post there anymore. But I do have some friends that hang out there so that's why I still hang around.

Most people here do not hate religious people. I know, YOU think somebody admitting not to believing in something is a direct frontal assault on people who do. But um. is there really a massive army of anti theists on here? There's also a vast difference between disliking a religion and disking all of its followers. I know you disagree. You have your victim role to protect. Your persecution complex. Your idea of being all alone fighting a dragon. Your minority status. But man, be real for a second, and is it really that bad? Just get over the fact people do not want to high five your every paragraph and grow several backbones. Welcome to reality, where opinions differ and feelings get hurt. Go back to IGNorant.

No the community here hates religious people as a whole, the first day I came to OT I simply said I believe in God and I immediately got jumped on and told I was dumb and that religion makes people dumber. There seems to be this consensus among the users here, I don't mind atheists at all but many of them here do not respect people.

I try to be polite as possible about it, but it sometimes get's under my skin and I say things I don't really mean. But OT is only one place, the reality is that there are plenty more welcoming communities. I guess I shouldn't let it get to me, but it is hard to do when I have a bad day and immediately people just jump on you because you express a religious view.

Some of the users here are good, but some are really bad about it.

No as Praline said there is only a few anti-religious people on here also look at another religious user on here. Mindstorm it's evident his religious and majorly so yet hardly anyone actually criticizes him, only the 1 or 2 random ones but this is a forum you're a are going to get disagreement and debate. Maybe you should look at how you post on here and see why people directly attack you as oppose to the other religious people on here. Also just avoid religious threads if it bothers you so much.

If you really don't like what people are saying about religion, why don't you just not click on the religion threads? I've never understood why people want to ban topics of conversation they dislike when they aren't even being forced to participate in the conversation.

#35 Posted by indzman (17194 posts) -

GS is best site community wise and OT best forum ever. Also blogging, uploading pictures and videos in your GS profile are nifty features.

I prefer GS anyday over IGN,Facebook,Twitter.

My advise to TC, try to stay on GS its certainly interesting and addicting.
