Ok, everybody, what gives. Obviously, everyone that posts here has a love for custom figures, especially TFs. What i don't get is this - lately, the drama (which has always been present) has gotten really out of hand. I tried to explain it to my radio listeners (i.e., non-TF fans, etc.) and i just couldn't. No one understood why this issue or that was raised, and why it got everyone all flustered. I'm not saying we should all just say nice things, but seriously, the drama is really turning me off to this place. If people like my stuff, great, if they don't, that's ok, i'm just doing this to make myself happy. and to see some people get TRULY bent out of shape about things that simply don't affect them, they just want to get on a soapbox or something, is obnoxious and childish. Granted, being in an atmosphere dedicated to children's toys is like an accellerant to this type of behavior, but seriously guys - Grow up, use actual manners, try and be more respectful. I know not everyone is contributing to this problem. I know there is a lot of support here, it's just been decreasing as of late, or maybe the loud obnoxious threads just cause more attention. Drawing attention away from awesome customs, to be quite honest. That igear thread for instance - holy jeebus. 50some pages back and forth, barely about the figure. I'll admit there are definitely times i get smarmy, and flippant, and smart-assed too. I am not above anybody here. I just want this place to kind of lean back to the supportive community it used to be, and not the Biggest Dick Measuring Contest it's become.
