Honestly I hardly even post here anymore because most of the people I talk to from here I talk to via Twitter/FB/whatever
I think the reduction in posting is more likely to be the growing age of all the members and posting on a Nintendo forum isn't as cool as it used to be when we were 12?

Billy has proven that it was m8 if it weren't cool how would billy be able to post pictures in the picture thread of his life as a playboy swimming in the poose.

Well it's also a result of a general stagnation of the forums because without a magazine there's less to talk about and we only get like two new members a year
also ghost is gone and people like superandre never made the transition, and will not appear here due to the stagnation, so really there's only ricky to collectively pick on

Not to dig up this old chestnut again, but this commonly held opinion is actually pish. I mean, it's easy enough to go "ONM reviews = teh bias" but since I probably wrote more than half of them I think it's fair to say I know they weren't.

Personally don't think there's anything wrong with in-jokes. It's fine to have a laugh with people you know, I don't see much problem with that. If you get a certain group of people together then their behaviour is naturally going to adapt to each other.

Perhaps it's the nature of the in-jokes more than the act of in-joking itself and the fact that a lot of groups feel that they need to have a Butt Monkey, and if it's someone outside of their own group who takes it badly then even better. Don't really like the whole Butt Monkey factor in all of this but that's probably because I've been one. People want to enjoy themselves and the way people seem to want to do it is by taking the piss out of someone else and getting a kick out of their reactions to it.

I wouldn't worry too much about what was said here, Stanson/Ageli doesn't exactly have the greatest of reputations around these parts anyways, and so everyone just tends to ignore him.
