RE: Why are armys so sensitive to any criticism?

  • I feel like I should feel this way about my hobbies lol

    well I've said my biggest hobby is basketball so even when playing it we do take it seriously and get into each other's faces and what not but once the game is over - have a drink/chat - we're still friends

  • well I've said my biggest hobby is basketball so even when playing it we do take it seriously and get into each other's faces and what not but once the game is over - have a drink/chat - we're still friends

    oh yeah I call it a healthy hobbie lmaooo

    basketball is so difficult I am so bad at sports that requires ... HEIGHT

    I am so shooort ç_Ç

  • Not the OP loser being pressed that I asked armys to curate their forum to have enjoyable time. Lmaoo imagine complaining about people not wanting to be around your complaining. I have seen it all


    indirect threads of all kinds shouldn't be allowed imo. idk why that loser felt the need to make that whole ass thread when you were completely right

    sabotage the things you love the most, camouflage so you can feed the lie that you're composed

    this is the voice in your head that says

    "You do not want this"

    this is the ache that says

    "You do not want him"

    this is the glimmer of light that you're keeping aIive when you tell yourself

    "Bet I could fuck him"

    Why do you need love so badly?

  • oh yeah I call it a healthy hobbie lmaooo

    basketball is so difficult I am so bad at sports that requires ... HEIGHT

    I am so shooort ç_Ç

    well I'm only 168 which is below average for a dude but like i said I have fun playing it - doesn't mean I'm very good but still I enjoy it and that's all that matters

  • I think you're looking at this the wrong way. Blocking if it will improve your forum experience should be an automatic reaction, rather than getting angry and letting it ruin your mood. This way you can go on saying what you want without them getting angry at you. I fail to see how it would be a bad thing and as staff that sometimes has to deal with situations where this doesn't happen, I applaud this.

    I'm sorry but I'm having a hard time seeing how this would improve the use of the forum? This person suggests blocking anyone who makes the slightest negative comment, the slightest criticism of HYBE/BTS. She wants the people they blocked to do the same to them. Well, for example, we mutually blocked each other, you will not be able to see the threads I opened or the messages I sent, and I will not see yours. There will be no interactions, even if these are positive posts/threads. So how is this going to make the forum better? As far as I know, forum moderators try to increase interaction between users, not decrease them. Maybe I am wrong.

    Actually, we request that users mutually block each other as a first step when they are constantly overstepping the boundaries when arguing with each other. The point is to make YOUR experience better, so you don't have to see something that will rile you up and, besides anger, potentially lead to WP or even you leaving the forum because you can't deal with that person hounding you all the time. Blocking will save you from that.

    But this recommendation is not for bilateral discussions as you say. This person suggests blocking any negative comments or criticism they see without arguing with them. She suggests that those people do the same. This is very different from what you said. As y'all already worried about, this will only reduce the forum activity even further. Forums exist for all positive and negative thoughts to come together and exchange ideas. I really don't understand how you could think that this suggestion fits the forum culture?

    This is up to the individual. If they would rather take part in the discussion, by all means, no one is stopping them from doing so. As I said above, we do not request this unless they are constantly overstepping the boundaries - boundaries meaning the rules, such as flinging personal insults at each other. It is up to them to choose to block.


    Blocking exists as a feature on almost all forums because it does improve the experience for some, enough that developers took notice and included it standard in forum offerings.

    I am not sure I quite understand.. you want people to care more for forum activity and not their own experience? I have already used the block feature in akp as well as twitter for my positive experience multiple times... to hell with the site egagements.


    If people don't want to argue then that's completely fine and should even be encouraged, especially when both parties hold opposite views and will not budge.


    I am so sorry I am not particularly disturbed over BTS only releasing three new songs, and I don't want to read how I am a company stan for that. And as I would rather read and interact with hyped threads and comments only, I will use the block feature if needed... you can use it too.

  • I'm never going to block anyone over a negative opinion. It doesn't make opinions I disagree with go away afterall. I'd just not see them anymore which, in a way, would distort my perception of reality. It'd also make any negative responses I do end up coming across seem out of place and uncalled for since nobody else (this "nobody else" being the people I haven't blocked yet) thinks that way.

    As an staff of this forum, I think you should be more careful about what you're going to applaud. This suggestion is just something that will further reduce forum activity. Just a few weeks ago, y'all were trying to learn the reasons from people why the activity decreased. Blocking or even mutually blocking those who make the slightest criticism so that there is no communication can be one of them. Because maybe because of a single comment, all positive interactions that can be made later will be blocked too. I can't imagine blocking someone just because they wrote ' I'm disappointed' and I don't understand those who encourage it. Sorry.

    There are many who choose to never block for reasons such as yours. I myself have never blocked anyone here either cause I like to see the full discussion like you.


    It's definitely commendable that you've learned to handle these situations in a healthy way seeing as you have no WP and are still an active poster. Not everyone in every situation will be able handle things like you though - and in those situations, we have another option to help them handle it wisely.

    Arguing is one thing, but suggesting to block people who just write 'I'm disappointed ' is quite another. Sorry. We've both argued with each other before. I think we had an debate just last week. We both shared our thoughts with each other and no one got hurt. Nobody blocked each other. A grown and mature person does this in a place called a forum.

    First, I did not make the post about forum activity, but I did listen to suggestions. One was to ban all the trolls. Well there are lots of users that get called trolls. We'd ban half the forum in that case. That's like a Thanos block.


    Second, my boss can take forum inactivity up with me if he feels current staff are the cause of it, thanks. I invite you to share your views with him if you are so concerned, I'll even start the DM for you, just let me know. I am not of the same mind, however.

    you do know that people can unblock. right?

    I think I've explained myself enough here. Like everyone else, I'm sure they can see these comments. Of course, I do not expect you to follow all the recommendations lol But sometimes before applauding an suggestion, it is necessary to take a broader view of the picture. Thanks for listening.^^

  • i do not see how someone saying block ppl who are being negative is causing such an uproar. it's like yall wanna see fights and arguments.

    AKP thrives on drama - I'm sure some believe that staff trying to nip it in the bud is the cause of all "forum inactivity". They're not entirely wrong, but they aren't entirely right either. We could let this place become more of a circus than it already is, but there's a balance that needs to be achieved for all our different users and sensitivities.


    It's about co-existing - and that's why block is so important. :pepe-toast:
