I think you should watch this, if you haven't seen it already. Not sure this is the right place to post it; I got a got a feeling that the Debate District would be a more appropriate place. But more people visit this thread, so I think the chanses of people watching it are better here, and, also, since I just watched it, i'ts whats' on my mind. Some of my CT's revolve around this right now, so this is what you're paying me a penny for.

I think it's a great educational vid, and it's perfect for discussion boards, where a lot of people (close-minded as they sometimes tend to be) don't take these aspects into consideration before posting and throwing hate at eachother.

I think that if you apply some of the examples in this video to your own ways thinking, the chanses of mutual understanding of eachother, or at least people "diagreeing to disagree", might be a little brighter.

Now, this isn't that much of a debate heavy forum, but debates and discussions do occur, and it doesn't have to be about the particular examples used in the video, such as religious and supernatural beliefs etc.

It can be about why you love an anime, while someone else hates it. Instead of fighting about who's opinion is "right" (this happens), perhaps you could try to analyze eachothers opinions and arguments a little deeper, to better understand eachoters feelings towards said anime. This doesn't mean you have to agree; you decide for yourself what you feel is right, for you. But perhaps without bashing the other persons opinions.

(Sorry if this post wall of text is stating the obvious, I particularly feel that the last part is pretty much common sense and something most people would be aware of. Regular "Forum politeness". Anyway, to my defence, it's pretty early in the morning here (well, tbh, it's not that early, but I'm sooo far away from being a morning person that you can be), and I'm pretty tired. So excuse me if this is unneccessary or inappropriate.)

Popo - thank-you, I'm still a bit new to the updated Firefox, only just altered the browser skin.

Chouchou - perhaps this point is debate, but possibly belongs here too, just as a reminder to everyone to be tolerant of others. There are not too many debates here...hence having a debate district for such things...but once in a while it is nice to remind everyone to look at what they post before they post it.

It seems we have a certain member, Naomi Kumikoh(cutiedivine), who is opening various duplicate and otherwise indubitably vague threads. I've not yet ventured a look-see into them, but I recognize the titles from way-back-when...

@Little Washu - Gahaha, funny you mention tongue.gif ... unbeknown to you, I have just assigned you to Naomi Kumikoh(cutiedivine)'s "thread-opening-post" consultant. Sorry.. but, I thought you would make an awesome consultant for her on this. ^^ Hence... if she sends you PM and asks you for your advice on making thread opening post for some of her intended new thread, please kindly guide her with your wisdom. biggrin.gif (Thank you, in advance! ^^)

I haven't come on here as much recently. Man, the boards are near empty.

Let's wait several more days, and check out our board when the next chapter of FMA gets released. I think the board, especially FMA manga forum would probably get quite busy then, and we may see 20 ~ 30 members posting or reading on the newest chapter discussion thread there. And, it seems this gets repeated every month around 9th, 10th, or around there. I think right now we are in a monthly "calm before storm" period. tongue.gif

... one of the threads revived went all the way back to 2005 and there are so many names very few people on here will recognise. Shame.

@Chiyo - Gahaha, I do recognize them (some from my "lurker" days) and does that mean... you and I are like, antique on our board now? laugh.gif

@Broken Chouchou - Actually, we use lots of this concept/thinking/or whatnot everyday here while moderating the forums, as our forums are bit more "discussion oriented" than some other boards that are more "chat" oriented, and hence we actually do have quite a bit of discussions going on in our forums. .... hence we use lots of practical applications of this idea in moderating our forums, such as, asking for "evidence, evidence, evidence" (or, in our case, we ask for the source, source, source) when members bring in news and info for FMA, or, pointing out the "misrepresentations" when some member brings in "fact A" in his/her post and then try to sneak in his/her own opinion as if that's a fact also, and then we have to discreetly point out/confirm and remind that poster that the two are not equal, or sometimes two members get into heated discussions and both do not back down and do not hear the other side and hence keep repeating the same loop of discussions over and over, and eventually we have to butt in and try to 'moderate' the discussions, and...oh gush we sometimes seem to get some particularly bad examples of close-mindedness, more frequently on some FMA Yaoi-pairing related threads, it seems, and hence they require on-going vigil and frequent posting of reminders and "moderating" of discussions as needed, so that the discussions on our board would not deteriorate, etc., etc., etc. smile.gif

Broken Chouchou
Lol no, of course I don't think that's all you do ^^

I'm sorry if anyone misinterprets my post; first of all, it wasn't aimed at you moderators, if you got that impression, Tombow. At all. I think you do a great job, and If I were to say anything else, I'd just be stupid.

It was more of a genreal "encouragement" to perhaps make people to think a little extra about what they say and claim.

The video I posted actually made me reflect a little more over something about myself, that I might not have done otherwise. I was hoping maybe it could have a similiar positive effect on other users as well.

Secondly; I sometimes have a very hard time expressing myself to an extent that feels satisfying for me, (especially) in english. Sometimes I don't get my point through 100 %, or sometimes it may not be clear what my point was at all XD And sometimes, named point might get misinterpreted and thought to mean something that I didn't intend at all, because of poor formulation.

Yes, that's exactly the kind of situations I mean. If you're less stubborn and less "snowed in" in your own POV, I think that wouldn't happen as much.

^ @Broken Chouchou - Oh, no, no, I was very much agreeing with what you were saying, and posted mine "in support of" (and not "against" ^^) your very interesting and thought provoking post, and my post was meant to show that what you're saying was very much applicable on our board. ^^

And, yes, (as you can see XD) like you, I also have a trouble expressing my thought accurately. So, yeah, I think I know what you mean, very well. (It's a near miracle that I got along fine this long on our board with such bad writings. XDD)

Let's wait several more days, and check out our board when the next chapter of FMA gets released. I think the board, especially FMA manga forum would probably get quite busy then, and we may see 20 ~ 30 members posting or reading on the newest chapter discussion thread there. And, it seems this gets repeated every month around 9th, 10th, or around there. I think right now we are in a monthly "calm before storm" period. tongue.gif

Heh, well I mean allllll the boards in general. Remember back in 06-mid 08 when the boards were flourishing and there were like, 100 new posts every 5 minutes?

Very true Washu, but I'm trying to keep on top of it and Tombow is dealing with the matter further in his usual polite but to the point manner. Luckily most members who did make mistakes in the past have stopped doing so and have become the forums new regulars. Funny now you mention it, one of the threads revived went all the way back to 2005 and there are so many names very few people on here will recognise. Shame.

sidekick - I wouldn't be too sure about that intelligent conversation, he sounds like a fanatic to me and someone to be slightly scared of. A lot of fun I imagine sometimes but a fanatic all the same. Get a picture, male Ed cosplay's are rare...good ones even rarer


Haha, actually... it was... uh... kinda weird meeting him. I was in the blackbox (the theatre room) working on tech stuff and my mentor goes. "Hey, Kep, there's a bunch of idiots waiting outside for you- more specifically your brother and his weirdo friends." So I go out there and am greeted with... a very thin piece of red fabric.

This is Edward's coat. Really thin and... not the best quality thing ever. Today he wasn't really "cosplaying", but just wearing the red coat. So yeah. Our conversation was pretty much "FMA is cool"-"Yeah it's my favorite show"-"Mine too"

Yeah... to sum it up. I should've asked him if he kept up with the manga or Brotherhood, but he didn't seem to be a fanatic at all. But I don't know him that much. It could just be "first impression shyness" syndrome or whatever, but maybe I'll meet up with him again. Yeah.

I am so happy right now. I sort of feel bad about it.

See, the city my school is in are sort of silly, and they don't really plow when it snows. Well, this weekend, we got almost 2' of snow. Everything was owned. Campus dining services have been nearly running out of food all weekend due to lack of deliveries.

Of course, my school's all, "NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT GUYS."

Then the city tells my school, "You noobs, if you hold classes tomorrow, half your professors will get killed on the roads." So the school's like, "Fine, Mom" and cancels classes.

I had two math tests scheduled for tomorrow that I was going to fail because I didn't understand the material and nobody had time to explain it to me. Well, now there's time.

I think my head's just exploded.
