And I just posted on Dragonsfoot that the Acaeum is generally less off-topic. (in response to the Acaeum being referred to as "snooty").  :roll:

Well, we don't off-topic that often so we might as well enjoy it. :wink:  

Heh, "snooty", whatever. :?

That's kinda funny....someone on Dragonsfoot saying we're "snooty".  I signed up over there about 3 or 4 months ago.  I still haven't posted anything cause I never can figure out what the heck they are talking about.

They can all go "quote" themselves.  :P

By the way...anyone noticed how the thread is slowing down exponentially the more we keep "quoting" each other?  I think we are reaching some sort of "critical mass" here.  I hope the forum doesnt implode.  :D

Dragonsfoot • Information

To be fair, the poster later said that that was probably not the best choice of words and his actual beef seems to be about a bad buying experience. Bclarkie has been having a civil discussion with him.

ST1 threads sure stir up a lot of emotion, eh?

Yep.  Clangador seems like a good guy to me, but I have a different opinion of "I have 3 of everything" KM32.  Did I mention that I feckin hate bullsh*ters. :x

Every single time — and for a crap giveaway that is rare only through a series of odd circumstances.

Its popularity is utterly lost on me ... but I suppose I can see where the "It Must Be Mine!" crowd tends to get emotional, since for some of them, it's probably one of the few items left to obtain.

From what I read of the thread it wasn't the ST1 that was the issue but the bitterness toward the acaeum.  To my way of thinking it isn't a bout them and us.  We are talking about one gaming community with different forums for different interest within the gaming community.  

The snootiness remark was interesting as I have consitently seen new members welcomed here with open arms (expected the few who act like complete and uter dills).  I wait to see wether I am welcomed with open arms over there!

i was considering also registering over there too some time ago, but just didnt get around to it. when i sat down and started to read through all the stuff that was being discussed, it just kinda put me off for some reason. dunno what it was exactly, but tbh, i like the ppl here and i can discuss what i want here anyway, so why go over there and pretty much duplicate it there too? doesnt seem to be a point in doing that to me and i can talk all i want here anyhow :)

as mike says, i can reply to anything here (and often do). :D

Al

I was referring to ST1 in general, not that specific thread at DF (which I rarely, rarely visit, and have a difficult time really caring about).

My point: it doesn't matter where the discussion takes place — here, DF, rpg.net, ENworld, what-have-you — ST1 threads tend to get heated. The damn thing just attracts controversy ...

Having recently starting posting and reading the DF forums I will have to say it is very different or at least up to this point it seems to be so. They are much more play oriented and not so much into the collecting vein it would seem. I would see that there might not be too much overlap in the membership or if not membership then the topics discussed would not overlap.

I have been fairly well accepted in my posting over there. I go an answer to my Rogue Gallery question. One person tried to do it from memory and the other got it verbatium from the accessory.

I have also been accepted here as well I think. I have not had any major incidents with any other members that I am aware of. There are also some very nice and generous people here (though I see some of them over there as well).

I read the thread that was linked to and I can almost see what the poster was saying. Now before the torches are lit and the hanging rope comes out let me explain. There have been posts here where I and others have hinted or even said that it sometimes seems that not everyone is in on the joke. I think this is due to the closeness of some of the relationships here and nothing intentional though to new members it might seem as if people were being left out of some threads. It is possible that the same thing occurs there and I would suspect it does and I have just not encountered it yet.
