|Angry Replies in Extremely Specific Fetish Emporium|
I’ve seen ridiculous amounts of “angry” replies that are all pretty much the same thing: “Oh yeah, I like it when you insult me.” Sure, people may have worded it differently each time, but come the **** on. Can’t people be more original?

I know, but it’s so hard to come up with anything else! That and criticizing them for having normal sex is all you can really do… And I was going to try getting the Smart Aleck E-Peen™ this time…

one of them is mine
I was the first I believe. But I guess it was a pretty obvious one, so everyone’s doing it. Not like everybody check all submitted entries before making a new one.

IMO it’s not hard to be different. Don’t just say they have normal sex and leave it at that or that you get off on it. This is the extermly specific fetish forum. Come at the problem from different angles and make good use of the random tags to get some spice into it.
You want to build a post that either is an attack on the player in some way, ignores their supposed attack or shows how little it affected them.
Once this is over I’ll post mine. Let me know how good/bad it was.
The problem I see more then anything is the following (this forumbuild seems more prone to):
1. posts of the wrong type in the build area. People are constantly posting requests into angry replies, normal talk, and the non requiest topic section.
2. bad use of sanity destroying language. There are several I had to vote down which were overall well done except for the glaring missing hunk of text that turned a winner into gibberish IMO. I dunno if people dont preview or if some bug is hitting people.
3. Did I mention people not voting based on or paying attention to what the submission area was?
4. insane downvotes, I dunno if I am biased, but I can watch stuff that gets decent to good votes for days go to hell all the sudden in less then an hour. I suspect some klans are being morons, but why **** up the game content until it sucks bum.
I think a solution would be have the original forum creator have a go at approving the submissions when it is all done before it gets published. Yah it’s extra work, but if you care about the forum submission your name is about to go on then moving the requests out of angry replies or the general talk out of requests will make it a lot cleaner.
Also when voting on stuff in the 3 categories created by the forum submitter, if you are out of submissions for the week you no longer get any info up top telling you what you are browsing. For enemies and angry replies that’s not such a problem, but other areas lack any guidance for the kiddies.
