It seems like a few select people are ruining the forum, especially in Karp Park...

Not to mention that a good deal of the karp topics are sex/drug based.

Time for urban renewal, perhaps?

Who? Me? I don't get really graphic do I? Sorry I didn't mean to offend ya Rolken... It was all in good humor... But I have to say the Park is getting pretty lurid... Some of the stuff boarder lines on softcore porn... others promote drug abuse... I really don't advocate the use of drugs or condone them... But it is rather inappropriate on a site such as this... Oh Karp the spell check isn't working... Well I hope you understand what I'm trying to say... Even ol Noddy thinks this scene is getting a little too kinky... ^_^*

I'm sorry guys. I didn't mean to offend anyone. I myself find that stuff pretty entertaining, but, if it is agreed that that stuff shouldn't be on this bored, I'll stop.

Rolken: It seems like a few select people are ruining the forum, especially in Karp Park...

Eh, I'm usually pretty sensitive about the health of the forum and I think it's doing fine.

Sure, there's a lot of trash in Karp Park, but that's what it's for. There's still a steady flow of new users, there's been no drop in traffic (it's been fairly steady since about July), we've been doing some good stuff in the Research Lab, I've got all kinds of new pages for the real site coming out soon, the Pokedex is done, etc., etc.

If you didn't read Karp Park at all, you wouldn't notice anything wrong (except for the occasional rudeness).

If the sex/drugs topics bother you, how about starting some new ones, more to your liking?

Hell, maybe I'll go start one.

At any rate, if there are a few threads you don't like or it bothers you that the kids get whipped into a frenzy when a chick shows up, just make a conscious effort to not read certain threads and you'll be fine.

The whole point of Karp Park is that anything in there could be deleted this second and it wouldn't mean a thing, so don't take the stuff there too seriously.

Point taken, I've been noticing a slight level of OTT-ness also...

I think the air of naughtiness that hangs around the park has just gotten somewhat out of hand, sometimes into the range of downright unpleasantness... I think the real regulars just need to try and keep their posts below a certain level, just maybe keeping a small reincheck on themselves while typing, and others will follow. It's easy to get carried away.

One should remember that this is a web community, much more so than a lot of other boards in fact, and that we as Azurians need to take a little care to make sure we keep co-existing in relative harmony. Corny, but true. ^_^

Perhaps all this...nuttiness...belongs in the chat more than the forum?
If you feel distinctly...nutty, try logging onto the chat instead of adding more clutter to the Park.

No, I don't think so... not all of us can be in the chat at the same time due to timezone stuff. And I think a lot of what makes the Park so cool is the nuttiness... not to mention that, to me at least, totally curbing the Azurians' lunacy is a pretty unrealistic prospect. Kind of like curbing the sun from setting...

I'm glad someone else started this topic.
For starters, when I joined the Azure Heights forum about a year ago, there was maybe 250 users, and all of them actually knew what they were talking about. Now we have assbombs and assholes all over the place. Karp Park has gone all to hell. While I remember the days of 10K snorlax's and Fish's sensible topics, I look at the smut and drugs going on at the page. It's kinda pathetic, don't you think, K?

But enough griping about Park. The incredible influx of Newbies is unbearable. This site used to be first and foremost for professional players. Fanha was at least ten times better than some of the trash you see now. Omanyte, Sakaki, Research, and Oddish are all being overrun by newbies. When I see a post that says "am I the only one that doesn't know that fire attacks melt frozen status", I see a problem.

But by this point I'm probably sounding like a tired old man, so I'll shut up.

Yes, k mouth is an idiot. But there are a lot of idiots here. As annoying as he is, he hasn't done anything worthy of kicking him out, so here he is. Oh well.

Rose-colored glasses...

Karp Park has gone all to hell.

What's funny is, at no time in our history was there ever a point when people haven't thought this. It's been a long, long trip to Hell, I guess.

The incredible influx of Newbies is unbearable.

Another one I see all the time. In six months, someone who signs up today is going to complain that this place was so great 6 months ago, but now it's all full of annoying newbies.

This is the nature of a forum with limited subject matter. As you learn everything there is to know about the game, anyone who doesn't know absolutely everything becomes a "newbie". Never mind that not too long ago, you were the one asking about frozen Pokemon being unfrozen by a Fire Punch.

Omanyte, Sakaki, Research, and Oddish are all being overrun by newbies.

I totally disagree. There is the same ratio of newbies to oldbies as there always was. Your perspective has just changed.

So, what's happenning is, there's not so much for you to learn any more, so those issues don't interest you much. It was OK so see someone who was asking how Counter worked a year ago, but now you're tired of the question. When you get bored with Pokemon discussion, you start spending more time in Karp Park, all of which is disposable nonsense. Complaints based primarily on the content of Karp Park mean you're taking the section too seriously, which no one should ever do.

At any rate, I see good stuff in the non-Karp forums all the time. Yes, there are newbies, but there have always been newbies. And, frankly, newbies are good.

Part of what the forum is about is helping people who need it. It's not just a place for people who know everything about the game to discuss it amongst themselves, altho it is that too.

Anyway, wait a few months and you'll see another of these "Azure has gone to Hell" messages, and they'll be fondly remembering the good old days of February 2001.

The problem with newbies is that they don't bother to read the information on the site. Then they wonder why a frozen pokemon thawed out when they used fire punch. It was indicated on the site on the ice page.

Too bad you can't give them a test of some sort, questions taken random from the site. But then you'll have the problem of people cheating their way out of this.

Blegh... no tests. That leads to egoism, exclusion, etc... not to mention that it violates the very purpose of the forum.

But that never happens at Azure... To be honest I was a Mod at one point... But I couldn't take it. I don't mind if someones needs help or maybe confused. But these wretched little children were little ego maniacs... eventually I just gave up... I didn't even say goodbye I just left... After a bit of wandering I found Azure. This is a wonderful place even if you think it's fallen from glory. There are excellent knowledgeable people like White Cat, AECG, 1970'sB(I know I gotta finish the team all my Amnesty stuff has been boggin me down, sorry I'm such a jerk), Automaton, SDShamshel, EYNH... etc... Waaayyyy to many to name.... And then there are just the fun, good people that make these boards so great... Chloreon *huggles*, Psybro, Spunman, Footitch, AC, Kikered, Jen (aahhh... she may be a bit crude but she's still a sweetie... ^_^), Atma... Ok I can't type anymore which I guess is kind of a good thing... Heck even SC and Fish have their moments... I don't think anybody really means what they say, that Azure is some sort of fallen dynasty... If it was so then they'd have left... Nothing draws you back except the people... So what if there are new faces... you still have fun don't you?

Noddy, I think its pretty safe to say you never have a goddamn clue.

And as for the state of the forum, sure some of the topics in the park are a little out there. But some people really seem to be able to connect on em. Others are...just there but oh well.
I don't think newbies are taking over. K explained that all pretty well. Hell, I remember when I first came here just a month or two into the forums existance. I was...yeah...
If all you are gonna do is bitch about it, leave. I tried once...or twice...not cause I thought it "went to hell" I came back tho, cuz I like the people here. I give some people shit sometimes, but I dont mind anyone, bar Noddy, who it seems is on a mission to piss me off.
If the forum is "that bad" why stick around? Cuz you like it, and you know it. So quit the bitchin.

Cesar: The problem with newbies is that they don't bother to read the information on the site.

This has always been true. If anything, it's a lot better now than it used to be. After about a month of answering simple questions with links to the main site, it stopped happening all the time.

There's a lot more of it in Sakaki Tower than anywhere else, but then again, we don't have a lot of Sharking info on the main site right now anyway, and no G/S Sharking info at all.

Then they wonder why a frozen pokemon thawed out when they used fire punch. It was indicated on the site on the ice page.

That's true, but we can't expect everyone to read absolutely everything on the site. If you didn't know frozen Pokemon could be thawed, you wouldn't even be looking for such info.

Besides, I saw the post in question, and it's not like he said "Hey, I made this amazing discovery! I'm a master!", he just said, essentially, "Wow, I didn't know that!".

He was just making conversation and was totally pleasant about it...but I can't say the same for the responses it generated.

His post was not at all the same as asking what the Box Trick is or what Amnesia does or what's strong vs. Psychic.

I can't say I've ever actually even seen a frozen Pokemon thaw out in a real battle, so, again, that's a pretty esoteric piece of information to get all bitchy about.

Too bad you can't give them a test of some sort, questions taken random from the site.

It's really not all that bad. And, of course, I don't think I even need to say that we'd never do anything like this.

Better yet the good old days of August 2000.

Thank you for making my point.

You signed up in June and people were already complaining about how things weren't like they were in the good ole days of April.

And, as Noddy pointed out, we really get very few of the Total Moron Newbies. Those guys either shape up or disappear rather quickly.

I'd be the first one bitching or taking action if I thought things had gotten out of hand, but really I don't see much change at all.

Hey, I actually thought of suggesting this when I first saw this topic. However, with my limited status (Even though Im a Sludge Bomb, Not a soul knows who the fuck I am ) I figured Id be hit with salmon and fed to angry, rabid, geese.

I think its a pretty good idea if people dont want that kind of thing in Karp Park. Most members here are young, teenage, males. Many young, teenage, males enjoy talking about sex, drugs, and other naughty things. Its just our nature I guess.

Id bet that if a more well-known member made a topic in Karp Park titled "Sex", it would get over 100 posts easy. Its just what people in Karp Park want to talk about.

If a new forum (Titled: Jynx's Dungeon or something) was passed for that purpose, Karp park would no longer be "ruined" by people who talk about whatever they want (Which is usually sex ).

We considered this before, but I think that would actually encourage that sort of thing, which we really don't want to do.

If it happens, it happens, and that's OK, but I don't think we want to bless sex talk on a Pokemon forum by creating a special place for it...

I was going to make a post like this, but now that it's here.

Yeah, Karp Park has always been a trash zone, but recently, it has been worse than ever. I remember when campaigns began wanting a reform of Karp. Some of them were legit; others were just crazy. You need Karp Krap, or else other forums are just gonna fill up on it.
The problem is people who come to AH and only stay in Karp Park or other non-research related forums. They come here to just "hang out" and could really care less about the Pokemon game. A wave of newbies a while ago started this. How do I mark this beginning of the end?
*cough* Jenova *cough*
She quickly over ran the Park and other non-gaming forums. I don't think I've ever seen this unnamed individual *shifty-eye mode* do anything in AH even slightly related to research or the games.
Then came the others.

The situation isn't as bad as some think, though. Like Mista K said, oldbies still outweigh newbies. Newbies come at an alarming rate, but they also drop like flies, leaving room for more newbies to breed. Oldbies stay constant.
So we don't have anything to worry about... yet.

On the topic of the trashiness/vulgarities, it makes me wonder how many little kids actually visit this site. That makes me want to go back and "censor" my posts. Any of you feel the same way? Not that I should cuss in the first place, but some idiots *coughTheMastercough* won't stop polluting the forums with the same, recycled garbage, and you can't help but get made at'em...

Kero, I honestly couldnt care less what you think about me...
But do you really think its appropriate to try and blame me for everything? Jenova started this, Jenova's to blame for that, Jenova's a slut, Jenova's an evil cow, Jenova's to blame for the Black frickin' Death, Jenova is Hitler reincarnated, Jenova started World War One, Jenova killed Jesus.

*shrugs* If you think its appropriate, go right ahead. If you want to appear as someone who considers what they say before they make themselves look like a prick, then...uh, dont be me. Cuz I just forgot half my sentence...Hmm, where was I, ah yeah. If you want to appear as someone who's not a big meanie to someone they dont even know, then stop picking on me! *sniff*uh, j.k I dont care

And another thing!
I dont contribute much to research, because everything I know has already been said, and you'd tell me off if I posted "Pikachu evolves into Raichu! Wow, I rock, look what I found out" -_-
Plus, I've not really got time to play the game, although I did read the info on the forums and the site when I was into the game.
So think a little before you pop off....I dont contribute because I have little to contribute.
Who here would say "Jenova's a Pokemon Mistress (not master -_-)"
Not many people.
Who here would say "Jenova's good fun"
A few more.
Who here would say "KeroKato knows his shit"
Quite a lot.
But, who here would say "KeroKato is a lovely, balanced person who can take a joke, doesnt complain too much, and is still good fun and clever into the bargain?"
Maybe the last bit.

*shrugs*

You dont like me, thats obvious. I dont care, thats also obvious. But if you want to have a go at me for absolutely everything, dont bother doing it here, email me a flame or two. You're wasting space with your blabbering (as am I, this is kinda pm-ly, I'll delete it later)


In conclusion: (Mr K style, I guess)
Blarg.

If that were true, it would've meant that you had fulfilled Scripture which stated that Jesus would die for our sins and helped God to complete His mission. You would therefore be revered as St. Jenova.

His point, tho, is that there are people who do nothing but post in Karp Park, which is kind of annoying.

The Park is supposed to be for people who otherwise use the forum to get krap out of their system, so they don't glut up the regular forums with trash.

I dunno how we managed to become a teen chat line for geeks, but...oh well.

It's not the end of the world, but it's not the desired situation either.

Well, I know I am one of the people you're talking about. I'm a newbie who hangs around in the Park and doesn't contribute to anything. I'm sorry. But the reason I don't is because I'm not very smart and no wear near an expert on Pokémon, so I just don't have anything useful to say. Plus, most of the research going on now has to do with Gold and Silver, which I don't have yet. I was hoping that once I got G/S I could become more active, although I will still never be an expert.
Anyway, I just wanted you guys to know (although you probably don't care, I'm just one insignificant person) that I'm not here just to hang around in Karp Park and be perverted and silly. I came here for the wealth of information and expertise on Pokémon. And I do brows though the other areas of this forum even if I don't say much. I thought this was a place, not just for experts and Pokémon masters, but a place where those of us who don't know everything can benefit from other's knowledge. And I thought that Karp Park was a place to just talk about anything at all. But if I am mistaken on any of this, I apologize.
I am really sorry, I don't want to be unwanted here.

I don't really mind anyone posting interesting stuff in the Park, as long as they use the forum otherwise (whether or not they post on it).

I don't even mind people that much who only post on Karp Park, as long as they make posts with actual content. If people want to talk about football or the Playstation or teen bubblegum pop or whatever, I'm not interested, but I'm happy people are getting good use out of the forum and enjoying it.

What I do object to, tho, is people who make a lot of pointless one-line posts that would be better off in a chat room. Even worse are the people who just post a lot of one-line insults.

I expect that kinda thing from time to time, but some people have made a career out of saying nothing and that's the kinda thing that really sucks.

Pokémon is now mainly focused on Gold/Silver. How can you expect a web page to stay in power when it doesn't update itself? No significant research is present on this site for Gold/Silver. That's why many people have registered at Pokémon Daily. At least it provides users with an in-depth knowledge of Gold/Silver.

As for our “Azure nationalists”, I would find it humorous for somebody to rationalize a flaw in this scenario. These comments aren't subjective complaints. These comments are hardcore facts that scream out to even the deaf.

Oh shut up... You need not publish information for it to be passed around a site... I find this place more of value when it comes to GS information as it's always changing... You don't need to see the same thing over and over again unless you're some sort of moron... I think Poke Daily is more suited for those just starting G+S. It gives you the very basics and pretty good move suggestions... But Azure goes into great depths when it comes to team analysis... You may complain that the site lacks GS information... But why do you need it when every other sites out there already have it? You're beatin a dead horse there Annon...

It really is interesting how many people think I'm talking about them whenever I post something like that. Didn't even have you in mind, spun, but I laughed just the same...

Annon: Pokémon is now mainly focused on Gold/Silver.

Maybe you is. I ain't.

How can you expect a web page to stay in power when it doesn't update itself?

I don't expect any website to "stay in power". I think someone needs to reboot your head.

No significant research is present on this site for Gold/Silver.

Yup.

That's why many people have registered at Pokémon Daily.

Good for them!

i have deaf friends. i scream at them all the time. it doesn't do me any good, but it's fun to scream at them when it's just me and them. me and them and one friend who doesn't know any better is even more fun, they think i've gone nuts!

>_< i just can't help these senseless posts! i see something i can make a dumbass coment about and the temptation is too strong to resist! is there a support group for this kinda thing?

My point exactly.
And I never said that you were the cause of it. I just said you were the mark of it. Around the time when you came was when all of the others started flooding in. Did I say you caused it? No. Did I say you were Hitler's reanimated corpse? Well, maybe once.

As for Annon, sure Pokemon is focused on G/S right now. Do you think AH cares? Do you think AH wants to stay in power? I don't see any top list buttons on AH. This site isn't about amassing power. It already has the prestige of being the largest Pokemon research site on da 'net (in English, anyway).

As I believe I mentioned earlier, I really dont give a flying fuck. *shrugs*
As I also said, and I think C-Meth said, all that we know has already been "discovered" and we'd look like even bigger fools for stating it again.

Yes, I should believe that, YFFI. There is nothing left to discover in Pokemon. It's just like when I posted the question of whether or not Haze removed Focus Energy, and no one knew the answer. So, I had to dust off my Link Cable, trade over an FEin' Slashin' Scyther, find out that Haze does remove Focus Energy, and then post it in the Research Forum. Yep, there is absolutely nothing left to discover.</sarcasm>

Look, I just made another discovery. Someone's an idiot.
Wanna take a guess as to whom?

Here's an idea: Restrict Karp Park access to people who have 25 or more posts in other forums. Can the software do that? And is this a good idea or a really stupid one?
