All right, here goes.
If you want to come up with ideas that people will like, there are a few things you should do. First, read over the other new ideas people have come up with to give yourself a better picture of what constitutes a good or original idea. Second, read some fanfics, and pay attention to the reviews and feedback people have left (which you should have done before posting your own last month, and then telling everyone how very funny it is). Third, don't do something that's already been done, and don't assemble your ideas by using a bunch of disparate elements that have nothing to do with each other.
In other words, try to give the fandom what they want, and try to be original. Don't just jump the gun and assume that people are as easily amused by random gags as you are. This is not Family Guy, you know.
That said, I'm sick of people who make appeals to sympathy by attempting to place themselves in a disability or minority group, after they've already done something stupid. It doesn't work, because most of the people here could readily claim the exact same thing.
So, to come up with good, original ideas for fan fiction, go read other people's episode ideas and fanfiction and pay attention to the reviews? I thought we were being original here Kyle..I mean, my friend Sandoz writes excellent horror fanfiction and she doesn't have to go read other people's ideas to get a feel for what people like. She writes stories that she would like, and they turn out f*cking fabulous. That is the key to making something great. Make something you yourself would like to see or read. And be sure to love what you do.Some people might hate the finished product, but then there will be people who will get what you are saying, and love it. Valentine seemed to be trying to do that, maybe he needs to try harder, and I think there is a good chance he was telling the truth about having autism( if you look at the stuff he wrote, he really comes across as he might have it) so that makes it harder. The point though is that originality doesn't come from testing what your audience likes and doesn't like. It comes from what you yourself like.
.You are just too concerned about what this board's opinions are, as I used to be, and someday you are going to realize how much of a waste of time that is.Back in the day, back in spring of 2003, I was here too much, and I was trying too hard to impress everyone. We did have a good time, Shanehaughy and I, and a bunch of other people did colaborate on some kick ass fanfiction, and I don't regret doing that..But, still, there were things offline that needed more attention, and I was using this board to escape certain problems..Besides I have learned that the people on here who really give a rats ass about me were still my friends when I was no longer a goody goody on this board and I started picking on you. This is why I was picking on you..You are too hung up on being the best at debating and fanfiction and coming across on here as intelligent. You are basically doing the same thing I did, except I was never that into debating, and like me, you are already finding out how fun it is to rip someone apart online. Oh sure, you justify it to yourself, they are a bully, they are a fundy ( PLK..LOL) they are using an illness or personal tragedy as an excuse for what they say. I used similar justifications when I went after the RZBOARD assh*les, I let myself believe I was in the right for tormenting them. But, the truth is you get off on pissing on those people, as I did.Basically, what I am saying is you are on a slippery slope ( one of your pet phrases..no?..LOL) to spending way too much time and putting way too much importance on the internet. Especially when it comes to this board. Yeah, I used to whine about how this board once was really good in 2003, but it changed so much, but maybe it is a good thing for me that things changes, so I would get the f*ck out of the house and do something offline.
And by the way, yes I did say that most of the new episode ideas here suck in my opinion..But if you have an episode idea, no matter how crappy it is, post it if you want to. f*ck anyone who says you suck, including me, and especially KTS, if you like it and think it is good, that is all that should matter to you.
I think you're still concerned about what this board's opinions are, the way you believe I'm hung up over. As fed up or disinterested as you claim to be with this forum, you still visit it frequently. As much as you claim that you're only bitching at me to blow off steam, you still hold everything I say under a magnifying glass and respond to me with long lectures as though it actually matters. When you argue with someone, it shows that you do care what they think, regardless of how much you try to deny it.
If you were truly as carefree as you try to portray yourself, you'd just say your piece and move on.
Face it, this board is mostly dead anyway. There is hardly any activity, except when there is some kind of arguement. Then it breifly comes alive until the thread is locked. I have said this again and again. I have no reason to lie. But why is it that you so often point accusing fingers at people, and imply ( but not always directly say) that what they are saying on this board is a lie to either gain sympathy or for some other purpose? Why so suspisious? Do you lie online for various purposes? I mean, I could just as easily accuse you of telling outright lies or saying misleading things about yourself..Remember the bad experiences you said you had with people who practice witchcraft or threatened to put curses on your family or whatever? Well, I did believe you when you told me, because I have had a friend who had similar problems, but you know what? I don't know you...So how do I know that whole story wasn't a lie? You do have an issue with religion and people who believe the things I do, it seems to be a really big issue or at least that is the impresssion I get of you, so how do I know you are not above lying to make people with such beliefs look bad or to gain sympathy or both? You know, people often accuse other people of things they have done themselves, or at least in my experience they have. Like I said, I don't know you..And, at least on here, you don't really give anyone a good idea of what kind of person you are offline. You mostly debate or talk about fanfiction. That is why I wanted to talk to you on MSN, I wanted to see what the person I was argueing with on here was really like.
And, when did I tell you to lie and to pad his ego? Don't be putting words in my mouth..I did say he tried. But I didn't say he succeeded. But I wasn't mean about it. I don't see why this is such a big deal anyway. He posted an idea that wasn't very good, just like 80 percent of the people who post in this section. Who said that the ideas posted in this section had to be great? It is just something to talk about for fun, unless you take this board too f*cking seriously. And, if you do, come on, it is not like your idea is going to be made into a script for a new episode, or you are going to win some kind of sweet prize for your great idea, although that would be a sweet contest for this board.
Anyway, I would love to stay and chat, but I wanted to watch a horror movie before bed.
Besides, I could ask you why you feel the need to point an accusing finger at me every time I say something remotely opinionated, as if you believe I'm trying to show off. I can only speculate that this is either insecurity or some inferiority complex on your part, but I don't assume because I don't presume to know. I have no reason to put on a facade. If I happen to come across as intelligent, or if I happen to come across as a moron, it's because I am.
I could also ask you why you have such hangups about people talking about and debating religion. What, are you afraid that your beliefs are going to come up and possibly be subjected to scrutiny? As I pointed out before, almost everyone is fairly passionate about the topic of religion, and most people are going to want to weigh in on the most controversial subject in the world. Deal with it. If you don't like it, you don't have to say anything.
You say you don't care what people think about you, but you always have to respond to me just to save face. Your actions betray your intent. I know you care. Any further responses to me will only prove that, otherwise you'd just walk away.

No, it doesn't.
You're just gay.
If you don't like this place, then stop posting here.
M00ndragon, stop trying to hijack every thread KtS posts in so you can argue with him.
Every step back a step foward.
Every failure an extra opportunity for success.
Every day of defeat a victory!
And for the record, my issue wasn't because people were debating religion..It was because they were incouraging PLK, and he was saying basically the same sh*t over and over. It was getting annoying, and I already said this on another thread. And, no I am not afraid my beliefs are going to be attacked. I have been there and done that, and not with people on the internet I don't know, but with people I was friends with for long enough to have an emotional attachment to and be hurt by their judgement and rejection of me based on what I believe. If I start openly talking about what I believe, what are you going to do, go to Google University ( a term I learned on the flame warriors board) and try to debunk me? Whatever. I am not playing your stupid little game. Ok, and now I fall for KTS's little trap of trying to prove I care about what people on this board think of me. Who really gives a f*ck? The people at Superbest friends who already dislike me over the sh*t that happened last summer with Laura and Niels? That is another problem with this board, it can be pretty cliquish.
O'Brien wrote:Why the bloody Hell should we care if Valetine has autism or not? There are two primary types of Internet users out there; those who are mature and those who are not. Valetine clearly falls in the latter catagory, as he can't respond to criticism positively and instead vents his rage out upon others. The simple fact is that I and everyone else has a right to describe such immature n00bs as idiots if their actions show it. I've seen many n00bs post thoughout my many years on the Internet, and a good number of them act just like Valetine here and blow up in rage when 'defeated'. Anyone who mindelessly insults abd bashes more mature and productive forumers is frankly not worth defending and is better off banned, if necessary.
It's like I told Phoenix, aka the_Mole_of_quebec (who some people might remember was responsible for the massive spam attack on this board last November.) Race baiting is just as racist as racial discrimination. Attempting to fend off criticism by pointing out that you're in a minority, and accusing the people flaming you of being "racist" is actually a very racist thing to do, because it only serves to reinforce the idea that people should be given special treatment because if their differences.
The same goes for any minority, disability, or condition. Any kind of minority baiting is just as bigoted as minority discrimination. Circumstances of birth are random chance, and should never be used as a source of pride, shame, or pity.
VB was the one who made an issue out of his autism, and only after he started acting like a jerk. If "hainted" were to return and whine that he was being picked on because he's mentally retarded, it would make him no more deserving of sympathy. If NAFB were to return and whine that he was being persecuted for his unpopular beliefs, just as Adolf Hitler told his followers they would be, so what?
