these boards are painfully cliquey
who are you?
she's got less than 1000 posts
one day, one day...
All the other internet sites use "clicky".
I'd love to be a dryad
Nice one Craig
have a bit of common sense.
behind "nice one Craig"?
"When the crew are in the cockpit at the beginning of the episode, suddenly, the whole shot jolts when they unexpectedly 'change course'. This means that the camera jolts, along with each of the cast. The shot then goes to Holly who says 'Strange. We've changed course'. It then goes back to the whole cockpit shot, and if you watch Craig Charles (Lister), he actually jolts back in his seat sharply as he does when the whole scene jolts, only he's too early - about five seconds later, the whole scene jolts again, when he's actually meant to"
I think it is only a problem when new users feel completely unable to contribute.
I think it is fairly good in this regard compared with some boards Ive seen in that a) there are quite a wide pool of people who post at least occasionally
b) new or less well-known users who post threads do actually get responded to
any group is cliquey, has its own history and private jokes, and is potentially intimidating to new members.
There seems to be an expectation that the internet is generally or should be different. But this is an unmoderated discussion forum. Sooner or later it's going to end up like this.
I don't think DiS is ever actively unwelcoming, except to people who have really unacceptable views.
clique (klk, klk)
A small exclusive group of friends or associates.
intr.v. cliqued, cliqu·ing, cliques Informal
To form, associate in, or act as a clique.
DiS is entirely inexclusive
not only is it free to sign up and read, but with "irl" meet ups, literally everyone is welcomed and such
and she's right
you complete and utter waste of sperm, oxygen and time.
It's an open community.
You guys wouldnt even tell me what BF meant until I was here for like a month and even to this day im completely unsure.
o so it's true okay :)
I never got told why but thank ya
and believe all the Brit-isms on the social board have me scratching my head every day...
But then I say to myself, "fuck it" and carry right on.
for a while i thought lol meant lots of love
could be a true story though.
About a friend of a friend who thought LOL meant Lots of Love and so put it on an email comiserating a work colleage over te news said colleagues father had died.
I know it might make me a terrible person, but I can't stop giggling at this.
then so I am I.
I had a pub conversation about this the other week.
As Andy said, when the boards changed over you had to put a subject title and Grockle's protest to this was to put Breastfuck as subject title for every post (later shortened to bf).
I think I recall the origin of it is something to do with him staying in a foreign country where the water mispronounced breakfast as "breastfuck" every day but I'm not 100% on that.
I dimly recall a story about a Japanese girl who wanted a Full English Breastfuck, but that's probably just some kind of subconscious wishful thinking.
EVERY bloody forum has in-jokes and stuff. This one isn't any different.
but then it got pissed on by you two :(
here am I...
in fact I believe DiS to be considerably more welcoming than most forums, for its low level of 13 year old Americans, its resultingly excellent standard of spelling and punctuation and the wide spectrum of topics available, from abortion to sandwiches to LoL-cats. The thing on the wiki article which refers to cliquey-ness should be deleted, it's utterly embarrassing.
Its not like it makes you feel left out, is it?
involves the Enemy and Castles =)
