This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Looks like there won't be an X/Y social board.

We do kind of need new members to liven the place up a little bit more...

Maybe just make it a general pokemon social (with an actual link to it, unlike the PSB)... <_<

I suppose one could argue that an elitist attitude is cultivated here which prevents newer users from feeling welcomed. It might be slightly true, but I don't think it poses as large of a problem as some might make it out to be.


The elitist attitude comes into play a lot more than you think. I know quite a few former actives who left because of the elitist attitudes, and I know sometimes I have trouble ignoring it. Not everybody in AT/Shinies is guilty of it, and there are people outside of those two groups who are guilty of it, but it is definitely there, definitely prevalent, and it does push people away.

I can't even deny the elitist attitudes. I'm not gonna lie and say I'm totally innocent but I try to be decent most of the time.

Messing around with new guys is just too fun sometimes though. If they actually seem like they'd be cool I try not to mess around but if they just seem kinda nooby, I tend to prey on that whenever that happens. I dunno, I've been conditioned to screw around with new guys. This place has tainted me.

See now I don't think that's a terrible thing, though, Diab. If they can't take a little joking around, life is gonna be tough. GameFAQs probably isn't the best place to be learning life lessons, but hey why not.

And ya that's what I mean Zanna, but I think that type of thinking is unavoidable in this sort of micro-culture. Again, it's not the worst thing in the world, but I could see what SBAllen is worried about, I guess. That was his reasoning, right? Or at least part of it?

This is pretty much why I never feel bad about it. I mean, we're not really like, insulting the dudes or making fun of them, it's just some old-fashioned hazing. If they can't accept that from us, I don't think they'd have a good time here anyways.

I don't think we're that bad. We've only really had 2 times where we had to ask someone to leave.

1 was Naxe, and we all know how that **** went down.
2 was that other dude whose name escapes me. I know he was a Punchout fan. I flat out had to ask him to leave because I knew it wouldn't end well and it pretty much went to hell from there.

Other than that, we've pretty much accepted anyone who wants to post who doesn't come off as an idiot. We **** on t_g/l_d a lot but if he should know it's because we love him.

I've actually found quite a few new members for AT in my time here... <_<
They usually come, post a little, and leave, but AT generally welcomes them.

Whoa whoa whoa I missed the Naxe stuff, what happened? I don't go in AT much so I probably just didn't catch it...
