So in my YouTube subscriptions, I saw that one reviewer/ranter I follow Pieguyrulz posted this PSA about forums.
He mostly discussed how to be in a forum environment where everything is positive and any negative opinion is instantly frowned upon. This makes me wonder: How can we as a community apply some of the things said in PSA to improve the way some of us think?
Now, the user discussed 2 different types of forums: The ones that have a variety of different opinions ranging from positive to negative and the ones that are mostly positive. For the most of it, I see this community fall into the former. People will state their opinion on whatever and not get too much hate or flame for it. But I still will see those instances where members are extremely positive where I'm just thinking, "What will happen when they go out and see how negative and cynical the world can be?" Or instances where people will get dog piled for stating an unpopular opinion (partially the reason the thread for it was shut down).
What I'm saying is that this forum community really seems to go either or. There are moments where I'll see them clash, but that's usually calmed down within a few days.
So how do you think we as a forum can improve in how we express our opinions or how positive/negative we are?
