Who thinks the people on here are too serious?

I have no idea what you're talking about.

I hate being serious. I'm only serious when I have to be.

My goal here is to to be an asset where possible. Being a videogame collector puts me in a somewhat unique position. I have access to a ton of stuff most people don't care to own or can't track down. I like to be the guy who can get stuff nobody else can. Right now I'm working on beating Colosseum in German so I can get the un-released Colosseum Pikachu and Agate Celebi in German and the second set of German E-reader mons using official hardware. 

@HaxAras

I know. I hate being serious too.

2nd line: So true.

Also, you are a pretty cool guy. Believe me, I've seen everybody's work on here so I know what they do and how good they are at it.

Yes it’s possible. But remember, even an Eevee has a cap on friendship before it evolves. 

 

I know. So are you really trying to insinuate that instead we should all love each other like family?

I mean since it is a reference to Sylveon...

No not at all! Lol. 

Actually Sylveon’s evolution involves affection. Espeon and Umbreon was the inspiration. Psychic/Dark

To me, Project Pokémon is, first and foremost, a community about researching Pokémon and collecting events. There's nothing to be gained from joking answers when someone asks a question about how some game mechanic works; it's annoying at best and causes actual confusion at worst. The tone of the forums matches the nature of the topics at hand.

Additionally, I understand if you feel that staff are being a tad too professional, but excessive friendliness may also be very uncomfortable. That feeling of uncomfortableness may expand rapidly into the territory of feeling sexually harrassed as well; people can and will be easily offended or feel sexually harrassed. The less opportunities for that to happen, the better, I'd argue. I believe I speak for everybody if I say that avoiding insinuations of sexual harrassment, justified or not, should be a priority of all staff members. That aside, not choosing a serious tone carries the risk of the message not to reach the recipient because they think they needn't take the message seriously.

I find the recent trend of corporations and other groups to be faux-friendly rather annoying. A prime example is Discord Inc., who seem to feel the need to add memes to everything. The latest corporate blog post was written by Nelly, "Chief Robot Hamster. Eater of cheeses. Maker of boops." I believe it's rather obvious that this trend becomes quite tiresome after some time.

I am absolutely not just a bitter old man who's become so much of a cynic that people having fun around him annoys him already.

I know what you meant.

So you were saying if friendship needs to be withheld,then how about affection/love?

@xorhash

1st paragraph: Exactly.

2nd: wait.what?not too professional,but too serious.

THE HECK?!

Sexual harrassment?! D:.

That's messed up,dude. I'm saying,be a little friendly. Not THAT friendly.

But I agree w/the Discord thing.

Fun, but so true.

The website on the outer surface was quite "friendly" and "less serious" and more casual back in the early days, but I guess this site became more specialised in the research area, so it calls for a more professional outlook on things. It is not a bad thing to be serious I think, especially if it helps the main part of this website's function. That being said, I could not take myself serious at all if I came about saying XD LAWL or whatever lingo that comes up these days, if that is what you mean by being "less serious". I do not know what you really mean by it though, but I think that is what you mean.

Maybe I was more like that in the past, but times change. On a personal level some of us can be more relaxed than you would think they are. But in actual forums post, it serves little to no purpose to say things you would say on your normal chatting medium. It does not make us any less approachable though. Before the forum interface changed, I had like some crazy number of visitor message posts on my wall, interactions with many people here, and many came and went. And the one thing I cannot stand in any case is just sheer stupidity, and we did not have a shortage of that. No need to throw wood into the fire or cast pearls unto swines, I say. So it calls for no nonsense in the end. I could always have a friendly exchange with anyone, or even trade/battle Pokemon on the Wifi, and I have no problem with that. In fact, I thought over the past few years we were somewhat lacking that kind of interaction we had in the early days. But I say in the end, being serious is proper on the boards, and I personally feel this board has relaxed since the past few years too. As long as it is not something like this:

Just now, Got_Eevees said:

i did apologize...

moderate me if you want..

all i wanted was some friends...

 

I could probably get rid of your rant above, but I will look past it. You are overreacting, like many rancid people online (note: I did not call you one). I normally do not do that by the way. But really, I do not understand what I said that made you angry or go on an outburst. It does not make sense to me. I just gave my honest opinion on the matter, I did not attack you or anything. And I am taking into account I may be addressing a person well below my age, who may not think the same way I do in this case. You are not the only one I had to deal with on that matter, believe me.

Nobody said anything about not making friends here? It is not hard making friends here, and as I see it you already have some friends. Just be yourself, and despite what idiosyncrasies (unique traits) one may have, we can always overlook it. Just don't say stupid things like whatever it was you did above on a forum post. It makes you look bad, and it is not proper etiquette. I am pretty approachable myself. I made a lot of posts here and got people interested in many things in battling and whatnot and helped on a couple of things (nothing in comparison to the actual developers/coders though), so surely you could find some people with common interests? I do not know what that has to do with seriousness. But you can talk however you like, but obviously there are rules to be kept in forum posting. You should know there are different ways of writing things vs speaking things, etc. That is a general rule in life.

Again, I am sorry.

Even the best people get to their breaking point when they cannot take anymore.

"Unique traits" hm... You did notice the prefix idio- ?

Etiquette? My friend (If we have been restored to that point),

I have never had such an outburst in my life. ANYWHERE.

There is simply too much happening with too many burdens....

This topic was just a 'please be more friendly' call.

Last sentence.. -_-. We get it. I am terribly sorry for any idiocies I may have vented upon you.

We will chat further in PM.

If you could,please close the topic from any further discussion.

You are taking things too personally. Just take a deep breath. We're all weirdos from different parts of the world united by one interest and that is in some virtual little animals or whatever invented by some Japanese autist called Pokemon. "Idio-" does not mean idiot lol. Idiosyncrasies is just a fancy term for unique traits, as I said. "Idio-" is a Greek word, meaning "oneself" (I studied some Greek). If you are struggling in real life, really, people without faces online could only do so much to help you. I am a pastor in training though, so maybe I could offer limited help, but I am not your local church or psychologist or anything.

> Close Topic

Sure, by your request. 

[Note: the pre-mentioned rant or venting or whatever it is called and my reply to it was already deleted, just so people will not be too confused]
