I'm out for now


Zero Flare

Recommended Posts

Well, I feel as though things have changed considerably here over the past couple of days, resulting in me feeling completely unwanted and tired of this place.

And yes, I know why I feel like this. As much as I loved the idea of my sister joining here, I've recently reconsidered. I was never really an active member here, despite being a member for just over a year. I know I didn't post much and the newer people (or even the veteran members for that matter) don't know me too well. I came here because Star Fox HQ thoroughly died out and this was the only other Star Fox community I was also a member of. Some members from HQ had also migrated here, so at least I knew some people.

Back on track of what I was saying - I've recently been making an effort of posting and getting to know people, but ever since my sister decided to just show up out of the blue, people haven't even been reading my posts or talking to me. And I have to say, it really hurts. Because you're all swarming around my sister and I've just been shunned. So I know I didn't post that much, but whenever I did, people just ignore it.

This has happened twice on forums with my sister, and twice is enough to make me sick and tired of it. I join forums to get away from every day life and to meet new people, which I'm sure most members here also do. But it's really not the same when a sibling shows up, especially a sibling who makes you feel insignificant and utterly stupid.

If you haven't noticed already, I'm leaving. It wouldn't make much of a difference now, would it? No, it wouldn't. However, that isn't to say that I haven't enjoyed my time here. I've been here a year, mostly watching and reading information about Star Fox and other games which have the occasional mention here and there. I've met some really pleasant people and I've also met some really stubborn people who I have nearly went head-to-head with. It's been a great experience over all.

Before I go, I'd like to leave a shout-out to some members who really had an impact on me -

Dermot: Really one of the most interesting members of a Star Fox community I have ever seen before. You are determined to make everyone aware of your views and I really respect that. And what's more, you're an old-school Star Fox fan. Something that really pissed me off was the fact that you weren't accepted by some as much as you should have been, because the majority of the Star Fox community is riddled with furfag Krystal fans who don't give a shit about other characters and honestly believe that the whole series revolves around her (sorry if this annoys a lot of people, it's just the way I see it). And what's even more confusing is the fact that you all worship Krystal, but you all detest the game from which she originated? Anyway, that's not the point in this case. Dermot, you're a really, really unique user. I hope you stick around here a bit longer and enjoy this place more than I have.

FredrykPhox: 'Star Fox - The Animated Series'.... hm, where to start with this one. It's fantastic. Even that is an understatement. I may not be an old-school Star Fox fan but this still really appealed to me. It's hilarious and really well-thought out, and I anticipate the finished product. I'd also like to thank you for teaching me how to use OpenCanvas on my tablet, and I also apologize for never really drawing with you in the end. I may need to appear in the chat every now and then so that we can draw sometime.

Star Fox Runner: Another member I really respect, you're always positive and always have something interesting to share with us. You do an excellent job of voice acting and I look forward to hearing your work in Paths of Fate (whenever it finishes...). And you actually acknowledged my posts. :3

Robert Monroe: I may have picked you up wrong in that first post in the Assault thread, but I've realized that was a terrible mistake. Your sense of humor is insane, almost to the point where it's troll-ish, but it's all so damn funny. You're really precise about your views and love a bit of debating. Every forum needs someone like that, seriously. Good job on making me laugh countless times.

TSA User: A really neat guy (and hell, you play laser tag professionally). Your posts on here and on HQ were always a pleasure to read, mainly because you always know what you're talking about. You have plenty to offer in a debate or even a casual conversation, and I actually think that you should also have modship status on here as well. However, that's not my place. I'm just throwing in my input.

Sissi: I know, we have NEVER spoken before. And you probably have no idea I exist on here, haha. Your avatar and usertitle really wins me over, along with that awesome personality. Also, I will never forget -

"There will be no anger in Sissi's topic of happiness! D<"

So, so funny and adorable, because I imagine the kitten in your avatar saying that. :D

Asper Sarnoff: You're a damn good moderator and a Wolf enthusiast. What is there not to like? You're also a very honest/genuine person.

Redeemer: You're still my sister, and I still love you as my sister. I just find it really difficult being on the same forum as you...

There are some people I have forgotten... I thought this post out last night, heh. So anyway, it was nice being here. I really have enjoyed my time here, and thanks for having me.

Later, guys.

Awww, don't go Zero, I enjoyed your artistic posts. Granted I likely didn't see very many of your posts, but I don't see as many of people's posts as I imagine people think I do. You just seem to be a bit reclusive is all, and the reason more people talk to your sister more is that she talks more herself. How I started talking with her, and we just started... shooting the breeze, as the saying. Perhaps if you were to try my style, and post just for the sake of being a talkative douchebag, you'd find more interesting conversations, and give you an incentive to stay?

In either case, make the best of your decisions.

Aww, I'm sad to see you go Zero, from what I have seen from the interactions we have had here and the posts you make I knew you were a good person. Wish you didn't feel you have to go but I respect your decision. All the best.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Sad to see you leave Zero. I really enjoyed having you around, and your posts were always interesting to read. I ask for you to reconsider leaving or at least pop by from time to time and talk with your friends here. For friends and family, the members of SF-O indeed are.

Please? Sad-2.gif<-- Big, watery puppy-eyes.

And thanks for the praise as well. Really appreciate it.

How did I make you feel insignificant and unwanted? This is very unfair Zero. Don't you know how I feel? Being stuck in a place like Dundee and never being able to see my family? I just wanted to be close to you, some how, some way. And I found you here, I was so proud to see you here. And you give me this? How could you do that to me? Don't you know how much I miss you?

This is unfair. I know you're going through a lot right now, and you're my sister, but this in uncalled for. You have no idea how I feel, hell, you don't seem to care. I'm going to stay here, because I like it here. But if you think I cast some sort of shadow over you, you're wrong. I just like to talk. That's it. I talk to people.

This is uncalled for, I just wanted to be near you somehow!

I'm mostly sure you and your sister have different lifes here, and I haven't seen the "she makes me feel stupid" thing you mention, think about it for a second, she goes to post on different topics than you, and you do the same, the only places I have seen you both talking are basically located on the Rec room and welcome wagon. While I do believe you might think she's getting "more" attention than you, I can assure you, and this topic provides me with such proofs, you have the same, and even more attention and people that appreciate you. You already have a history here, why throw it away? If I had to mention people that have never cause any kind of trouble and have done something to make this place more user friendly, your name would come up on the list. You also stood with us when we only had around 3-4 members online every day.

About the random misfortunes in the forum. Well, we are working on them, slowly, but they are going away.

Samantha, if you want to stay, I'll back off. You were here first.

And another thing, the reason I CAN talk so much is because I'm online all day. I have nothing better to do because I lost my job because I have asthma. All my friends are home for the summer, and I'm alone all day. I'm not going out of my way to make a show about myself.

You needn't back off.  You have a right to be here too.

I'm online most of the day as well 'cause I'm unemployed most of my life, and I go to school online, so there you have it.

I can understand how you feel, i'd probably do the same thing if any of my younger siblings had showed up (and thank the heavens the odds are 0).

I to havn't been posting as much either anymore, but i still read the new stuff and make a post whenever i feel i have something useful to say.

Your good person and I'm really going to miss you, Can you at least come back every now and then and leave a drawing or 2?

Listen very carefully to this.

1_ Everyone enjoys your artwork.

2_ Nobody wants you to leave.

3_ As far as both sisters on the same

    forum, I do not see 'what' is wrong

    with that. I wished my brother was

    here too.

4_ JUST TO MAKE IT REALLY CLEAR:

    EVERYONE LIKES YOU AROUND HERE.

See Zero? Everyone likes you here, there's no need for you leave. You're being very, very stupid and overlydramatic.

Zero, while the internet is indeed an escape from reality, it shouldn't be a PERMANENT one. Redeemer has no desire to put you down and make you feel unwanted. Before going off an running away from these things because of general assumptions, you should both talk to each other with clear and level heads. You want community, and she wants a way to be around some family. I don't see any malicious intent here. I don't know what's happened on boards past, but here it seems to be little more than a unwarranted drama llama.

Robert, I don't really remember what happened last time but it was pretty much the same thing as here. Except I grudgingly left.

Don't go! You were one of the people that keeps me coming here! You always have something interesting to say, you're a good artist, and your a bright influence around here!

I've had a lot of friends leave this place for this exact reason, and I don't want another to leave for exactly the same reason!

Ugh. A friend told me about this thread and I was disappointed to hear the bad news. I'm sorry things got tough for you Sam, but I can understand when things get to a breaking point on a forum so I won't go out of my way to convince you back here. At least I'll still see you on MSN as always, but your thoughts and drawings around here will be truly missed. But who knows? You may come back one day. But I understand if you have to have a little space right now.

Well Sam you've truly made me look like a fool, I hope you're happy. Do yourself a favour and grow up, it's not difficult to co-exist with your sister. I'm over this now and I'm going to stay. If you chose to come back, cool, if not, I don't really care. At least I don't believe this forum should revolve around me. From what some people have told me, you didn't post much here anyway, how is that different from what you're wanting?
