(***Takes a deep breath*** this is gonna be hard for me to write lol)
Firstly, I would like to point out that if I wanted to create some arguments, I would simply have found one of the already existing posts and said something there... If people comment on this post, looking for a fight, please note: I won't reply unless there's something Very (and i mean VERY) important, like something, god forbid, insighting? I'm not sure if that word exists, so you'll have to forgive me if the previous sentence made sense lol.
Secondly, I would like to point out that I am creating this post in order to get people to read it - And i do want a lot of people reading this - But I don't want people to think that I'm doing this to draw attention to myself. In fact one of the points I will be making below is technically the complete opposite.
So. Let's get to it...
I AM disappointed in Lostpedia. It does rise my temper so much that so many people can be like this.
But before you say anything, It's not the spoilers that piss me off. Sure, a person shouldn't delibarately post a spoiler just to spoil it for those who DIDNT want to know what happens next, but that's not what gets me
And secondly, its not the way that the Administrators don't do anything about it... In fact, that is kind of what this post is about...
What gets me, is how insulting people are towards the Administrators! How people treat them like they are some kind of corrupt government! As if they're like politicians who have just done something incredibly wrong. If you think that the Admins have not done something right, then fair enough, but please remember that these Admins do this for us voluntairily, and they have lives before this site... Sure, we recieve enjoyment from this wiki, but at the end of the day, this is just a site, and the Admins know this... They have jobs, families, friends, etc to see BEFORE this site... Sure, if they got paid for this, then maybe there would be a little more profession (even though I don't think there's anything wrong with the way that everything is organised around here, and i'm sure i'm not the only one). But as they do this for us, voluntarily, and with nothing to ask for us in return, i expect a little more respect from some users on this site. They have set up this site, they have raised its popularity, and they have organised a system that allows us to commune in a way that brings so much joy to us all! And at the end of the day, they have people who aren't quite 100% happy, because the site has rogue sheep that like to spoil some things, and the Admins don't necessarily handle it the right way (again, not saying they don't, but i see thats the opinion of a lot of people on this site)
I'm not naming any names, but i'm really hoping that you know who you are if you're reading this... You enjoy this site, you use it with comfort, and you like putting out your ideas, whilst at the same time, using it for a source of information in case there's something you need to know... You love it! So why do you let something as trivia as spoilers or abusers disrupt the cycle of things on this site? And why do you have to resort to insulting the Administrators, the group of people who are actually responsible for this site in the first place?
If you don't like this site, or you find it isn't for you, then don't use it. Don't make massive posts that insult the Admins who at the end of the way only do this for a hobby...
I would just like to say thank you to the Administrators. I enjoy this site so much, and whilst I do hold the frame of mind where I know that at the end of the day it is JUST a site, I thank you for the joy you give me, and countless others. And at this moment, I'm asking everyone to comment on this post- to show their appreciation to the Administrators as I have tried.
If I knew your real names, then I would use them, but obvious security reasons, its probably for the best i don't know them lol. Nevertheless, Thank you:
LostPediaAdmin - Plkrtn - Jabberwock - Mr. Leaf - Robert KS - Blue Eagle Islander - CTS - Sam MacPherson
Apologies if i left anyone out. Sorry too, if i have ranted on a bit, and even more if I have offended anyone. I meant no harm, i was simply trying to make everyone see past what's been going on at the moment.
Again, I'm asking everyone to comment on this post- to show their appreciation to the Administrators as I have tried. Thanks :)
