Basically this is a place to vent small frustrations.

what is one thing big or small that annoys you about the U?

Mine: I don't like it when people only read half of an opening post, team or RPG

I also dislike people telling others they have to change their character nigh completely in order to get "noticed".

People who jump to the wrong conclusions, and won't admit it.

Pettiness, and egotism.

What Punk said about OOC, Angeni and things of that nature.

Yes I dislike this as well. It is maddening.

All the good stuff has been said already. I don't like it when people don't ask if someone is only joking around, before they get all bent out of shape however. People need to lighten up, and get a sense of humor.

The fact that CV's become a water downed version of high school baffles me. Subliminal insults, kissing @ss, and pretending to be something your not. If I wanted to deal with this kind of insanity....I would of signed up for summer school O_O

Honest thing I'm not a fan of is people who don't build a characters. Like making a character that owns a fortune 500 company or is the top martial artist without said character having any past interactions to gain influence or wins on under their belt, just ruins the realistic feel for me, which is 99 percent what I dig about being here

Some of us get on here to have a break from the RL. So it is just fun to use our imaginations. I see what you are saying, but I think being creative is way more important than being realistic.

I hear that, the problem with it though is this

insulter: "Your character sucks seriously go get a new idea haha"

Insulted: "Was that a joke?"

insulter: "Oh yeah lol"

Clearly in that statement there was some type of negativity directed at the insulted person joke or not, but the insulter would never own up to that fact, and the cycle of bs and passive aggression continues.

Brings up another thing: I HATE passive aggressive people, in any setting, Vine or other wise

This is a particularly rare one. In fact, I think I've only run into it once or twice, but telling me how I should write my character pisses me off. This is different from criticism, by the way. I mean, for most of my characters, I've got a definite plan set up. I know what I'm doing with him/her/it, and I wouldn't of made the character if it didn't have a purpose. I respect positive criticism, and I'm good at taking it. But when you flat-out tell me how I should be writing my character, I'm going to want to punch in your face.

Also, the expectation of realism that sometimes pops up. I don't like being realistic 24/7. I'd like to just let loose sometimes, without having to worry about lacking in realism.

Edit: Oh, a third one.

People who start things in open threads. I get enough drama in real life from my family. I usually come to CV to relax a little and enjoy myself. Seeing that crap here (especially when we have a pm system), is annoying.

I hear you, it's just a personal preference. Read your bio, don't take it personally. What I said kind of doesn't apply to divine or magic characters, because those are two that need to have some type of experience filled background to even be played with.

People who talk major crap behind your back, and it's even worse if they are doing it in an open thread to cause even more drama. If you have a problem with me say it to my face by sending me a pm.

Idk though..all my characters are master martial artist,but its only cause my first character was and my reputation as a writer is based mostly on being a kicking a$$ type nigg@.

Second nah I didn't mean I don't dig martial art type I mean I dig when those types have some wins against other characters. I mean of course your gonna have a badass fighter for a character if being a martial artist is his shtick, but claiming he's world renowned and known far and wide, that type of stuff annoys me a lil bit, not alot but enough to voice it. Dude can be a badass and not be known as one, on some bruce wayne sh!t feel me?

lol I know it's a let down as an adult, but the suspense of it was what did it for most people. I was scared to take a shower for like three nights after that scene where IT jumps out of the sink hole. I think King built up the suspense great with hardly any blood shed. Another one is the Leprechaun lol I lmao at it now, but that lil mf scared me bad as a kid lol
