I know my opinion probably no longer holds any weight around here anymore due to the induction of more “seasoned” and “serious” debaters, but fuck man…I don’t know what it is. Argumentatively, the site is doing just fine, except for the fact that somehow the Covenant is on par with factions inside the Star Wars universe, or how universes such as WH40k and Star Wars are being downplayed while Star Trek and other franchises formerly regarded as lower tier can now hold their own based off of practically no evidence whatsoever. I’ll give credit where it’s needed, however. ZomB, Xornell (despite the annoying as fuck avatar), Ragnorke, and Ober Herr are quality debaters. I don’t have to forage through regurgitated fanboyism just to understand what is going on. You have also provided me with info on universes that I had no idea what their capacities were. Xornell especially, you make reading stats and power outputs enjoyable like they used to be during the days of AlphaCommando and the like.
That being said, aside from the debating there is really nothing pulling me (or if I am as communally cognizant to the desires of others, anyone else for that matter) to the main site anymore. The only reason I’m not contributing like I used to is due to the fact that the Colorado legal system has tried so hard to inseminate my rectum with their abominable seed of pro social quid pro quo and the ubiquitous threat of annihilation if I even so much as thrust a scalpel into the air out of sheer defiance. The short version is, I can’t have my camera to make comics with and I have no idea what the fuck is going on with any of the newcomers or erstwhile denizens. I feel like the Vietnam veteran they only keep around to keep ties with their past and by extension the seeming validity the presence of elders provides, but other than that everyone thinks I’m incurably insane. It fucking sucks. Yet for whatever reason I can’t muster it up to just leave this once and for all. I want to stay, but have I become antiquated? I’m not even feeling sorry for myself when I ask this, I’m being dead fucking serious. This comes as an admonition to not let whatever argumentative prowess you have become a form of elitism, shit, I already deal with enough of that on the Topia where no one reads my posts or heeds them in anyway due to being pigeonholed as the neighborhood incorrigible.
I only approach thee in so accessible a venue because I don’t want to lose my roots to this place. I’m the last of a nigh extinct species. Who is still around from 2009 on here anymore? I have seen my fair share site adaptations and re-configurations. For the most part the lot of you are indistinguishable. Maybe once I am exonerated from these manacles I can inject the site yet again with my own flair. I know a hell of a lot of you would appreciate that. So far almost the whole cast list for my comics is gone, giving the rest of you a chance for the effigial arrival you’ve all been waiting for. I don’t want this to come off as bitching, that wasn’t my intention. Just heed the warnings of the direction the site is going in. I’m not even saying it’s going in a bad direction, but I just don’t want to become an anachronism. Consider this I guess a formal declaration of my want to contribute but not really even knowing if I’m welcome or even if I’m comfortable doing so…
