I was just about to point that out, I may have only been here a short time and so I've only seen a few be nasty/swearing/personally attacking others, however Cubed is not one of them.

As for the thread in general, like others I think it's everywhere. As for this site, again I've not been on here long enough to say for sure, I've seen it but there's also a lot of reasonable discussion too. (can't speak for time past)

Yeah, you missed all that movie drama and craziness. Pretty bad at times, but lets be honest... it could be pretty entertaining, too. At least if you don't try to take it too seriously.


This site is more like a half-grown angry puppy compared to some of the swamp monsters elsewhere on the internet.

Yeah I heard about 2014, just didn't know to what extent it was. Actually when I was browsing TMNT and came across this site it seemd fairly reasonable

Pffft. 2014/2016 was nothing compared to the onslaught of the Booty Sigs.

That's all you can do to survive is try and NOT take it too seriously.


although the latter half of the comment applies to my other post about a certain movie from last year that we shall dare not name .

TMNT is no different than any other subject. I think there are just toxic people in life. I’m doubt TMNT as a franchise attracts the toxic folks more than any other franchise. If it was a magnet for toxicity then the question I would want to ask is...What about TMNT brings out the worse in people more so than other subjects?

The Booty Sig Scandal
http://thedrome.wikia.com/wiki/Booty_Sigs
Quote:
Originally started by Ryona, “booty sigs” were close up pictures of anime girl rears that several members used as their signatures. Most people thought it was stupid and it died out within a month. Interestingly enough Ryona was harrased over PM about the sigs by a middle-aged member who thought they were inappropriate for a TMNT forum despite the fact that Krang didn't give a damn about it.

Booty Sigs re-ignited the discussion of "How old does a Dromer need to be to be allowed on the forums?"-discussion, last seen when Hannah signed up. However, Hannah's proven to be a mostly exceptional, if slightly erratic, young lady on the forums, the discussion died down quickly and younger members were welcomed with open arms.
With Buslady's complaint, that discussion was briefly re-ignited and it was decided upon that everyone under 13 years of age had no claims to make on the forums. Krang intervened, citing artistic expression as a reason for everyone to shut up,

It is assumed that Buslady's son is still reeling from the trauma inflicted upon him by half-covered anime buttocks.

Trivia:
Have the power to offend ten year-olds.
Bring soccer moms onto the barricades
Are not considered to be harmful to minors by Krang.


There was this period where pretty much everyone had a "booty" sig, IIRC it started with like only like one or two users, some people with "No Fun allowed" attitude complained which sparked the majority of the forum to change their sigs to booty sigs and it lasted a while. It was fairly funny seeing it all unfold and backfire.

I believe there is "toxicity" over here but its not exclusive to the technodrome forums.

Perhaps toxicity is not the best word, since it really can't harm you unless you let it. I'd say a better word is unpleasantness.

Its ugly, but you can still be happy regardless if you don't make a big deal out of it.

Replying to the title of the thread: how could it be anymore than any other fandom? And I wouldn’t say you “proved his point,” and not juts because I agree with you and also thought your photo reply was hilarious.

I think these forums are a fun place to hang out. I suppose it is like just about any place, on the internet or a physical location. It is mostly fun, sometimes there is a little nastiness between people to be avoided. Mostly I find the people here helpful and fun to chat with.

Yeah, I don't get it. What kind of 100% "safe space" back-patting fandom communities are out there?
