It's like a frat boy wanting to join a DnD session. It's not that this forum is a consolation prize, it's that it's a better fit for those kinds of people, so everyone's happy.

    The ideal and official position is like Anonymous described, and that certainly represents a number of people's views i would suspect. I was referring to the effects of "marketing this site" based on the way it is communicated in the "go away n00b" threads. People can certainly continue approaching it that way, but typically when it is communicated in a negative way, the person it is directed at will probably react by trolling at least for a bit. It is human nature when someone is easily offended by your presence and condescending to you, that a person's first reaction is to fight back a bit. My favorite n00b go away comment over there was "I'd like to slit everyone's throats at Typology Central". It was a kid acting tough and so almost cute, but represents the other end of the spectrum rather than the whole detached, "let's be equal but different approach". I think it is fantastic, generous, and all kinds of good stuff that this forum was created, so I was only speaking to the efficiency of having at least someone say, "yeah, come on over it's a great place". Sometimes I'll do it, but I don't have the motivation to be reading a bunch of negative n00b threads.

    Never have I seen one forum so obsessed with another.

    Really? You've never borne witness to the feud between GaiaOnline and 4chan?

    Never heard of GaiaOnline. Is it still a feud if it's largely one-sided?

    It's because they are sister forums.

    That's only part of it. I've seen sister fora before, but not quite the same dynamic as this one.

    It's an anime forum which provides probably about 80% of 4chan's userbase.

    Also I would say the sister forum obsession seems mostly one-sided. INTPc seems mostly apathetic of what we think of them or what happens here from what I can tell.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Hmm are you teasing?

    Nevertheless as an illustration of my point....I would be pretty quick about telling a homeless person who happens to come to my door to beg about directions to the homeless shelter without giving a fig of what the residents of the shelter said about me when the guy gets there.
