Seemingly contemptuous new members
 
Is it just me or are we getting some members lately that seem to spend as much if not more effort than they do actually working on the wiki complaining about the wiki? Incessantly challenging longstanding ways of how we do things because it doesn't suit their particular 'logic', bitching about how we 'don't do things like other wikis' and implying we're lazy dolts when we argue back against making wholesale changes to the site on little more than a whim - In short basically spreading a whole aura of contempt and even disrespect about?

....Or is it more I'm just being too sensitive because I'm now an old enough member to just be another curmudgeon going 'get off my lawn'? :p

(Disclaimer: Yes I make this post fully aware some of those I'm talking about may be on here. Doesn't change the fact I feel there's an issue here and wish to air it out. Anyhoo...)

Reading the Battlefield V comments again?

So I'm an old curmudgeon too as I totally agree with Stan.

Lol I only glanced over them, this is mainly on other stuff but yeah that's part of it.

Thinking again on it, maybe it's just another round of the strife the VG part of the site always seems to generate now and again. Maybe my tolerance for such crap isn't so great at times. Guess maybe I'm due for trying out that ten year difference crap on social media since clearly I'm not quite the same guy I was when I first joined hahaha.

We are a site to point on what is presented on screen and to point out inaccuracies. Even in a video game, it's naturally for us to strongly disagree with what is presented. We don't just make a list of guns shown. And in the discussion section we...discuss

The arrogant young punks are pretty much the reason why most of us industry armorers (we're all technically old farts to this board ;) ) don't bother any more.

My energy is too precious to waste it on idiots with lots of energy and no brains.

Yeah, that's been a pretty annoying issue. Plus, one of the main purposes of this site is (and always has been, and always will be) to point out inaccuracies in media, as well as sometimes stating how it should have been done correctly. Yet some people still manage to get offended just because someone criticized their favorite game... because logic *facepalm* (the Battlefield V thread was a case in point)

Not to mention those who have a "no fun allowed" attitude in regards to humorous descriptions in articles. Thankfully these specific people are rare nowadays, but still.
