rofl how do you really deal with crews like that? I couldn't do it, and my main goal now is to get to Kam and try to make a bloodbat, which might be kinda fun to do the only downfall is being stuck with some really horrible crews. neutral

I RQed pretty soon after.

Oh and after wasting a few revives one girl told me she had defib. whut. Thanks for defibbing me.

I just wanna get to GR. I heard it's a lot better.

Okay, so today, I'm going to use this beautiful, beautiful rant thread.

I Have enough. People come on here, to the z!f and the things we see lately? Threads about people leaving. Well, yeah, so what?

Yes, it's sad that our friends are leaving, but come on, does it have to be done in such attention whore and drama way? It's one of the reasons I don't watch TV, there is too much of that.

I've seen people come and go. Some of my awesome, awesome friends, but no one felt the need to make such a ruckus. We all took it in the, okay, you need to leave now, fine, have a nice life until you come back. Then we'll hug and talk and everything will be as it once was, way.

I don't know, I just feel sick of all these attention seeking and paranoid threads.

It's called moving on and doing something with one's life. We should be proud and wish them all the best, not conspiring, guessing and feeding each other's paranoia.

I disagree with this. Having a "we'll miss you" thread for a regular, active
member of the z! community is like holding any "going away" party for a
close colleague or throwing a bachelor party for a good friend.

It's a small community and the person in question just happens to be one
of the more popular, more well-known members. This is just peoples' way
of showing their love.

And to be honest, it's a public forum, but you're more than welcome to
not click on the "sorry you're leaving" threads. People only make a big
deal because, again, she was well-known and because of the gifts that
she sent when she left (and the resulting mystery).

It's just like making a new thread ranting about x update to y area. It happens.

honestly ary, those threads are for attention

if the person leaving cares only about their friends on here, they'd personally inform them as opposed to making a huge commotion in the forum

I've slain more than my fair share of plush beside many; befriended few- Sometimes, just SOMETIMES, It's nice to know that though you may not be the best of friends, you won't be seeing that familiar face anymore.

As I understood it, we were talking about Dande.
Who actually didn't even come into the forums personally,
and actually quietly gifted people (didn't even name herself).
And Miya, who also didn't start the thread about her.

And I don't think the people who keep posting in those threads
are looking for attention either, just getting together to send
a final message (and maybe getting quite a bit carried away,
but that's besides the point).

Now, the people who leave and post threads about themselves,
they're attention whores.

they're openly telling people through texting

neither of them are idiots, they knew what was going to happen (especially in dande's case with gifting anonymously)

the people in those threads and blindly supporting their "friends" who didn't even have the decency to inform most of them personally

if they didn't want attention (as the threads were about them), perhaps they should have taken the time to show that their "friends" were worth their time?

Really, they're feeding the people of the z!F with guilt and regret by being so discreet and telling them indirectly (Selfish) that they are quitting by giving gifts anonymously and having another person post the thread for them for maximum benefits. Oh and bonus points for leaving texting/calling open while other activities on the same plane are denied.
I think they have the upper hand now because the drama is already ignited in those threads.
That or they are that inexperienced in how to leave.

As opposed to telling people how?
Quitting Gaia first and then texting your friends to let them
know that "Oh, I've quit and I'm not coming back" is the
better alternative to starting a thread yourself to say "I'll
be quitting in exactly 16.02 hours, folks."

It's not like they have much control to what their friends do
afterwards.

my point is, they knew what the outcome would be

if it wasn't for attention, they wouldn't have left with so many people wondering what was going on

they'd have shown that their friends matter enough to be informed personally

TBH, I don't see any reason for attention-seeking
when you won't be coming back to receive the attention.

many people find gratification in knowing that people care(d) about them, regardless of how they come across

this narcissism is fed by those who still text them

I don't think there has to be an ulterior motive behind everything
(or, if it's unconscious or psychological, I don't want to judge it).

Why can't we just call it

1. (on the part of the people who leave) An ungraceful, abrupt exit
2. (on the part of those in the threads) A nice thing to do, letting
their friends know they're loved, appreciated, or thought about?

Even if it ends up feeding narcissism in the long run, isn't it enough
to say that, on the surface, it's innocent and mostly in good fun?

i feel the people showing their displeasure are better off than the people blindly going on all "omg we'll miss you please don't leave you're perfect!!!", as the people showing their displeasure at least have the decency to look at the situation logically and with an open mind
