Think you're special??

I've been around here a little while.. still learning alot.. lately I've been seeing a lot of braggin about doing things your own way.. throwing caution to the wind. That's fine. Great! You're doing it peter!! You're flying! !! All I ask is this.. please start your thread with your history, current stock, setup, lots of details.and pictures, lots if pictures with good explanation.. may get a little more out of the thread?? Us and you.. seeking out praise can quickly backfire without proper tactics. Thanks.. end rant

Finally someone has come out to say it! In the past two days I've been called a "bro" (I'm a girl), boring, ignorant, stupid, an alien from Pluto, and tasteless.

I saw an alien once... someone posted a "what is this" thread on tpt.. clearly it was an aquatic alien.. no one agreed though..

Hope it wasn't me! Was it wearing a scuba tank and had blond hair? That'd be concerning.

Don't think I would call someone with a pink flower avatar Bro. Unless it was in the generic Broness way like whats up bro hahaha. Who still uses the word bro?

Oh and yes I think I'm special my mom said so.

In all seriousness its names like you were called that made me venture to friendlier forums I am just now back giving it a second try.

Think you're special??

Some of he threads get a little wacky, and people forget opinions are opinions. There are strong recommendations which should be suggested but we have to remember we are on the internet and you can't stop people sometimes. Gettin into heated arguments seems silly when people are 100's of miles from one another. There are some great voices on here that I've learned a lot from but there's also plenty of threads that just go way off course. The best you can do is get your opinion in and back it up with your properly cared for tank! No need to start something and take away from a thread, especially when it's 2 members arguing and the op is just getting bombed with crap lol.

This is also part of the reason I try to stay away from certain threads.

Since most people in those positions don't read or do research what makes you think they'll see this and or care?

I don't even care man.. was just watching paint dry and fired off a few words
Edit. Shouldn't say I don't care.. i just don't want people new.to the site cruise a couple wacky threads and make mistakes based off these.. specifics will atleast give them a little less of a chance of utter failure if that makes sense..
