We all know I write a lot, when commenting and this topic just screams for another novel.
I’d like to say that forums in general burn me out nowadays. But I love helping people, especially when I remember how I started and lost I was, sometimes still am.
I went trough so much trial and errors, purchases and hours of reading older stuff, just to find out, these information’s were and are outdated, or/and plain wrong, or even bias because it was given out as freebie.
If somebody would have lend me a helping hand, I’m sure it would of been less frustrating, and still to these days its stressing me out, when I can’t find a solution. I rather not ask, because lately everybody is so easily offended.
Back in the day, you could jump in a topic and give quick answers, that might have been helpful or even just small talk. Getting too know people etc. Lately every time I post something, I need to worry whom I offended this time, unintentionally.
Things I thought were light and fun, turn into a huge discussion, were at the end you need too explain yourself, which then pisses another person off. Never ending cycle.
I like this forum and the people I got too know, I’m not around that long yet, and I would hate seeing it go the wrong direction, but as you mentioned maybe some changes would be nice.
As I read the part about negativity I agreed and still do, but look what I do right now. Right list everything negative, I’m just not sure how else too phrase it lol.
If we could get rid of single flavor recipes, and maybe add some categories, it would be less overwhelming or/and difficult too find things. I love the “what can I make option” but I’m not browsing through 120 copies of unicorn milk/porn/vomit/poop and whatever else they might be called.
I’m sure I’m missing much more, but its 2 am and I gotta get up at 5:30, so I’ll just stop here.
@Pro_Vapes, I saw your posts around but sadly I didn’t get the opportunity of knowing you just yet. I’m certain you could teach me a thing here and there, but for me you’re at the top. Hard to explain, but I try not too bother the “famous” and stick with the beginners, much more suited for me anyways. At least I don’t feel stupid alone lol. I hope you stick around, but I could understand if you need a break.
