General Discussion Vs. Off Topic Junk

Postby Toxic on Sat Nov 13, 2004 11:35 pm

I've noticed lately that Off Topic Junk seems to be rivaling GD in terms of traffic. Has anyone looked in GD lately? It's a wasteland. All the cool topics are here.

I demand a third option! I go to GD to find serious discussions about webcomics (and derail them), and visit OT to join serious discussions about everything else non-webcomic (and then derail them).

So, I like both in equal measure.
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.

maybe we should post naked pictures in the GD, then the traffic will pick back up.

Junk indeed ruler GD in traffic lately, don't know why. Specially because lots of people from GD don't visit Junk, while most of "junkers" go to GD.
I'd say it's one of usual flipflops, this forum is a moody bitch.
But I noticed that in Junk, all the action is whithin limited number of threads. When I come visit forum twice in few hours, I see all topics I replied to in Junk replied to. In GD, there's a lot less replies, but more disperse in threads, also new threads appear more ofter and old ones die faster.

To me, difference between Junk and GD is, on GD I can talk all kinds of crap because I'm not moderator.
While on junk I can talk all kinds of crap because I am moderator, I guess.

I agree with everything that has been said thus far. Thus, this post counts as nothing.

I suppose I should venture outside of OT more often, but then, I can start a riot in OT and everyone joins in the fun. What if I were to start a riot in GD?

That's really sad. Riots used to be perfectly acceptable in GD as well.
I guess that's what happens when you introduce a junk forum - it's sort of inferred that all the whackiness and stupidity should be contained here, which, by pure coincidence, I have been more active in lately.

You mean moderators have to be all nice and politically correct? That doesn't sound like fun.

Who goes to Comic Pitching when they're *not* promoting their own comic?

And where's the "I lurk everywhere indiscriminately" option?

Yeah, while the mod was away Roland, JP, me and some others
had a spiffy nonsensical conversation there.

It sure is a downer now, though nyo.

I think it would be interesting to post a thread just like this one in GD, and compare the results...
You are the Non. You must go now, and never return."

"1.Scan in high res 2.tweak with curves,levels or something to clean up the scan (or use channel mixer to remove blue pencil lines) 3.Add colour using a layer set to multiply. 4.Add wordbubbles and text as vector shapes. 5. Merge all layers. 6.resize to the web size. 7. Export/Save for Web" that's all I know about webcomicking.
