I'm just wondering what all of your opinions are on the users of the website, or more specifically these forums.

How do you feel about the community here?

I dislike gun threads. But generally some original threads would be nice, especially on GD.

But isn't that one on the more fun parts? I mean if everyone stayed cool and composed, the discussions would be too professional and not comical at all.

People need to learn to use the search function, or google. Specifically the new people.

Using a GIF in your sig? Make sure to read the site & forum guidelines, section II.

Be more specific on how the moderators sucks. For me they are okay. They are using alot of free time coding and adding new anime series into MAL for free. Imo you can't ask for any better.

What's there to say?It's a site full with many different types of people with one main thing in common (we all like anime & manga).

There's users I agree with & others I don't.
There's users who chose to keep their manners & show some god damn respect & people who don't.
There's users who actually use there brains to figure out things & those who walks around like some ignorant fool.
There's fanboys,haters & everyone else in between.
There's girls,boy & everyone else in between.
There's users who's serious & others who jokers.
etc....Etc...ETc......ETC................

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

The thing that annoys me is when threads are randomly moved around without any indication. I dunno what their exact criteria is for "spam type threads", but I see a lot of threads that could have actual discussion being moved from general discussion to casual chat.

It surprises me how uncivil or rude some people are on these forums and just how many people are close minded and willing to put people down just because of their anime tastes.

I see this type of conversation often:

Random_guy: Well I didn't like this episode too much...
Douchebag: Your opinion doesn't matter because you rated Bleach a 10.

Most of the users here I can tolerate, friendly depending on what section you are in >.< Though there are some users here I have come to expect stupidity from.

Forums for the most part are blah, repetitive.

This, there was this hilarious thread made about an octo mom and it got removed twice.

I second this. Been wondering why potential discussion threads are transferred to casual chat. Don't see any sense in that.

I actually agree with that, though never made a big deal of it.

But in general the mod decisions are backed and understandable; the problem is that I miss messages explaining it when they move threads, of course some things are clear, but in other cases I can't figure it out at all, like why this thread and why not this one, if they are getting a similar development, etc. I don't want to bother them for such a thing, but really, I would appreciate these additional explanations in some threads, specially those moved to Casual Chat that sometimes are not just +1 threads but contain debates I have followed. And the problem is that anything that is thrown in the Casual Chat is going to disappear in a couple of hours behind countless chat threads, so it is specially bothering to find and read them back if they had something interesting.

The community? Oh, it's fine, thanks.

I've had a good experience on these forums for the most part. Obviously, you can't like everyone, but compared to forums I've been on in the past, I think these are pretty good. I normally hate forums, so I've been pleasantly surprised.

I really like it...helped me find more anime when I just got into it...but sometimes, the questions I post in certain anime threads never get answered so I get bugged from time to time...but I think it's a great site overall...

I don't think you could ever really clump everything together to form a general opinion on a forum like this.

The majority of this community lack a sense of humor and take shit way to seriously and get offended way to easily. It's kinda pathetic.
REAL VS ANIME: Just face it, your chances of scoring with either of these two are unlikely.

A lot better than Facebook/(insert other social media). I don't feel like I'm wasting time here at all, even if I literally am ^^.

It brings together all the people that love and appreciate anime like you do. What more could I ask for?

Sometimes they forget how to make correlations with the discussions going on deemed as off topic and the on topic discussion.

They forget how debates go on, sometimes you give examples or you talk about other subjects to prove a point on the on topic discussion, or talk about laws.

Of course, I didn't see a closed topic where I was for ages, and neither did I get any more warnings than the one a few days ago. So this is my biased opinion.
