Oh LOL My experment, it WORKED!!!
Uhh, some if you may think twice about me after this XDD;;; -runs-
Anyway, I've been in the Tales Forums
, AC Forums
, some other forums for a long while now (3-4 years?), and everyone knows how I am there: post my opinions, silent about other fights there, just shrug off whatever's happening, etc. You know me, I'm neutral XD.
Aaaanyway, we all know there are a lot of sarcastic and negative people in these forums (not mentioning who), and I noticed, with the Tales Forums being a forum targeting the Western side of the world (and AC too, I think, even if I'm the one running that even though I'm from the Phils), sarcastic remarks are usually just seen as normal posts, or ignored.
So, I did a little experiment. The Western audiences are pretty much adept at accepting sarcastic remarks, so I wondered... how about my fellow Filipinos? Are they able
to accept sarcastic and negative remarks without making such a WHOA MAN
big deal about it? Well, let's see!
I did this little experiment in my actual school's forum
. LOL YES my school's forum xD. I don't know why, but I had no other forums to test it out on (without making a bad reputation lol), and to be honest, it's my school's forum
(like, more than half of the school population don't even know it exists... much less make a forum WORK). And I needed a Filipino forum to test this out on.
How did I test it out? I joined the forum (I think this is my second account, 'cause the first one I forgot the password and such), and then what...? I acted like a total jerk
. Like, every post I saw there, regardless of content, I replied with negative or sarcastic remarks.RESULTS
OK, at first, I thought the Filipino forum members are the same as, let's say, the Tales Forums. My posts were either ignored or replied to normally. This went on for a few weeks (3, I think).
going to mark it off as a failed experiment, but then this one guy replied in an attacking manner, though the problem with his reply is that he replied to one of my "normal" posts, not my negative ones. Hrm, that guy didn't really reply back, so crossed out.
And I went MIA from the forums for a while, because I was dead bored, and had better things to do, like AC's ver3 (and Apollo Justice xD).
When I came back however, I see this
. As I saw this, I was ecstatic! My experiment worked xD!! Someone finally reacted!
So anyway, I wasn't done just yet. I replied in my usual negative manner. I made a long post which was intended to make someone go tl;dr, and indeed, the poster probably went tl;dr on me (if... they actually know what tl;dr
is. I noticed in my school forum that some people don't even know what the basic "btw" means).
So, I got my desired results, and I'm done with this experiment
. And lol at the guy saying I should act accordingly because this is an "official forum
". LOL, compare this forum to the official Tales of Series Forums
, this is like a poorly run public forum. I find myself -facepalming- at the number of spammed posts/threads, TxT msseGeS, DOUBLE POSTERS (asadsfdgd) and not to mention WUT posts that the so-called moderators have ignored up until now. I applaud Lunar, Ryuu and Shinryu for their moderating in the Tales Forums, they actually keep everything
in order.... up to the point that I actually PM Lunar regularly to ask if I've accumulated any points (the points you get for violating any of the rules, that if they reach a certain amount, you get suspended/banned from the Tales Forums).
... I can be evil sometimes xDDD... -runs-
Now if you'll all excuse me, I'm back to my playing FE:Radiant Dawn ♥♥♥~
