larafan25
14-11-09, 02:26
Pros - some amount of input into the tomb raider games and lots of awesome Tyra gifs....

Cons - people who feel the need to contanstly pick at worthless crap in the tomb raider games because they have no other reason not to like a certain developer.(truly they seems to loose sense over it)

GameGlitcher77
14-11-09, 04:07
Pros-Good people to talk to, good mods, and the only forum I'm a member of besides the Modding the Sims 2 forum

Cons-members that judge, critize and put down other members for no apparant reason, and I'm not saying any names, :whi: self appointed mods,
spammers, pointless GIF's, not being able to change your own avatar, etc. :p :ton: :ohn:

P is for people. Some really wonderful ones here and a nice community overall!

C is for changes. There's been a significant shift in how the forum has evolved just in the past year and a half since I became a member here. How I miss those earlier days when things were much more relaxed and carefree!

Do tell! Was it simply because there were less people at the time or is there more to it?:)

15 isn't enough? :p

Pro: Some great people here, and nice to see a forum with rules that are enforced

Hell no!

At least not on the Video Games, Consoles and Related Discussions where I spend most of my time.

Won't name names but I see people flame baiting a lot. On the IGN boards, flame baiting gets you a 24 hour ban minimum.

Pro - features like member galleries
Cons - 60 second wait between searches *headdesk*

Pros- Larger than average avatars, great mods, a wonderfully diverse community where we can all get along despite our differences. An administrator that actually listens to our input and suggestions.

Cons- No signatures, the inability to change your avatar on your own, and no "General Tomb Raider" section, for general TR talk that isn't associated with a specific game.

Overall this forum is fantastic, though. It's not perfect, but then again, no forum is. I've been posting here since I was 15, and I'm almost 23 now, so it's definitely my little internet home. <3 Members change constantly, and many of the people I was really close with don't post anymore, but I really do like everyone here (yes, everyone :)), because they all add some great input from different perspectives, and I appreciate that.

A TRF general chat section would negate the need for a future of TR section...

errr, I mean Tomb Raider General chat. Long day.

Draco

Yes, I agree. At least until the game is names, then go ahead and list it, but before then, I really don't see a need for a "future TR" section. Tomb Raider General Chat would serve is perfectly, along with being able to hold popular threads like, "Which Lara is your favorite?" or "What is your favorite TR Level?". Things of the like.

Pros - Debates. Once you get into one they're really fun.
Cons - Can't change your avatar yourself. And there's no reason for it to be like that, at all.

From my perspective, there is more to it than that. I'm not positive there were less members at the time, it just seemed there was a much more relaxed atmosphere to the forum in general. Not nearly as much nitpicking or jumping down other members throats about this or that. Then again, maybe it's just me and I'm the one who's changed? :/

violentblossom
14-11-09, 12:53
Pros: the people.

Cons: 60 second wait between searches, time limit between pm's (I got alot to say, ya'll!), ocassional inconsistant moderation (but not by all), inability to change avatars, the censor applying to MGC.

Your_Envy*
14-11-09, 13:00
Pros: Great friends, it makes me in a good mood, funny pictures, MGC
Cons: Arguing about pathetic things, wave smiley (oh yes, I really don't like it when it's used when people are arguing), signature (I'd love to have bold signature for example, with little letters.. I don't want pictures though).

Romantics Inc.
14-11-09, 13:12
Pro: I Like the limits in avatars, signatures, etc. because then, every post isnt always an eye-sore, and you actually pay more attention to what the person has to say rather than their signature that takes up half the page :p

I also love most of the people on these forums, I have made GREAT friends here...

Cons: I would love to be able to change my avatar whenever I want.

Minty Mouth
14-11-09, 13:19
The people here are amazing. The design is simple, but I love it. The avatar size is perfect.

Not being able to change avatars on your own is still a problem. And everyone here knows there is no proper reason to have such a rule. The moderation is seemingly based on several "invisible" rules as well as the ones in the T&C.

14-11-09, 13:34
Pro: the people to literally fall in love with and change your life like no one ever before
Cons: Ive got no further problems

Great thread idea :tmb:


Pro: As said by many, the people. I've met such wonderful people here.

Con: Complete lack of freedom, which is something that has really started to grate on me the last while. There's the usual can't change avatar etc. but it's more than that...I feel like a lot of people here, including myself, have to completely censor themselves in order to avoid the ban hammer. There's no freedom in terms of having a little fun with fellow members. You can't have a naturally flowing conversation develop within a thread or you're considered spamming, either by the mods or more annoyingly, the self-appointed ones! (Grrr!)

The worst thing for me is...I refuse to discuss TR anywhere on this board at this point. It always, imo, descends into this disgusting display of not respecting others opinions and ridulous arguments over pointless crap...Such a shame because that's the reason I joined this board, to discuss my favourite game series.

LightningRider
14-11-09, 14:08
Pros - Many Great Members (Tomb Raider fans, I am not alone I said! :p) who are mostly friendly, :mis: Also, very orderly.

Cons - I have no complaints, except for the fact I can't go and have a conversation regrdaing something in a thread, when it's clearly a part of the thread too sometimes. ;)

Avatar changing doesn't generally phase me, I like to associate people with an avatar, but when they change it, I go "Who are they? :confused:". And I know a lot of people want to change their avvies almost everyday. :D

Pro - There's some amazing people on here and its not as strict as many forums.

Con - So much Pop Music threads it makes my stomache turn, some people act like there above everyone else, not being able to change your avtar or profile picture yourself, way to much censoring other peoples posts by mods.

Phys
14-11-09, 15:24

Con - 90% of people here aren't honest enough and suck up to people.

I totally agree with this whole post. TRF has really, really changed drastically, even in the short year I've been here.

It isn't as much fun as it used to be, it isn't as active, and I'm becoming more and more bored with the topics discussed.

I totally disagree with whatever VB has to say. Because.

Actually to be perfectly honest, this place feels to me exactly like it did 4+ years ago when I joined. I have watched the environment go up and down numerous times since then. It gets rockin' and fun, then it gets stale and boring (and perhaps the mods get so bored that they get a little more heavy handed?), then it picks up again and is a blast to be a part of. I still love it here. :tmb:

snork
14-11-09, 18:28
I agree with what the one with the poor alter ego choice said. :ton:

really, bloodstormaoa and VB, maybe you need to reconsider your understanding of "freedom". :confused:

Maybe worth a topic of it's own ?

@ Irjudd - I agree with you in terms of the ups and downs of the forums. I've experienced the lulls before. I just feel like the place is a little more constricting now...

Maybe you could offer your spin on "freedom" with regards to the forum in order to help me reconsider.

Let me think a little bit...for example

Pros- a large community with new members, news associated with TR in general... its fun, a nice place to discuss everything...
Cons-Signatures with images arent allowed...:(

Paddy
17-11-09, 10:06
Pros - Good people here, lots of fun discussing TR and other random stuff, I get along well or try to even if I aint very well liked :D

Cons - People can be quick to jump on bandwagons, people can be quick to be judgmental, more importantly, they are quick to jump on me for disagreeing about certain things. Now thats just me, I couldnt give a flying rats ass if someone jumps on this. Im here like everyone else to say an opinion and Ill do so.
