VuTales on Discord

What Happened to Us?

Written by Arladerus on July 3, 2010
Today, I went out with a couple of friends to a music shop. I was looking for a chromatic tuner and I ended up buying a more expensive one than the one I was looking for (the site said it was in stock but it wasn't there). I also spent an hour and a half there just jamming with my friends. Great, huh? Just spending my summer chillin' away my days doing nothing.

Why is that? Why am I going out and doing things rather than being on VuTales and discussing other things? Most would argue that's not bad and it isn't. However, it's bad for this community. Honestly, most of the blogs aren't content. Most of the blogs are about people complaining about their lives (for example, this blog, except it isn't about my life). Where is the content? Honestly, FireLeo probably has the most real content out of all of us here on VuTales. Even with his haitus, he beats us. Why is that?

To me, VuTales is just a group. We have no reputation, we don't do anything. I rarely go on VuTales and I haven't written a real blog in a long time, most of my blogs being lazy screenshots with the most effort put into uploading the pictures. All I do is stuff on the MSN group. Honestly, all VuTales does is whine those who are in the VuTales MSN group would rather whine on MSN than on a blog for faster more immediate comments and discussion. Where is the content that can only be shown through blogs and VuTales?

I'm not saying that there isn't ANY content on VuTales, there is. However, I feel that content (or what I consider it to be) is not to the interest of VuTales anymore. No, people would rather post about how much their lives such and then comment on other people's lives on how much they're a pussy. Where did our interest go? It's summer and we're as dead as ever (except for MSN group). Currently, as unfortunate as it is, Aika Online is the main thing right now with VuTales (mostly the MSN group). With this though we should have massive amounts of blogs about their adventures in the world of Aika. Where are they? I want to know about what you guys are doing in Aika Online. I want to read content.

The buzz I used to have when going on to MMOTales and VuTales is gone. I used to respect you guys. I used to cherish what you posted. I used to believe that everything on MMOTales and VuTales is gold. I used to consider MMOTales/VuTales as some sort of special community that we can be together and share. However, I DO NOT want to hear your QQs. Ironic, isn't it, complaining about other people's complaints? At least this affects all of us.

What happened to us?

I was thinking about this all myself the other day. I play enough Aika to write a decent blog, but i dont bother because I dont feel like wasting my time on a blog when people would much rather talk about thier own personal lives. I am guilty of it too, tons of my blogs are about real world activity. I guess somewhere down the line, people stopped with the *MMO CONTENT RULE* as soon as we got onto the new Vut Site.

You're pretty dramatic. People post about what's important to them. All there is to it. VuTales is not dying. "Content", an entirely subjective term, is not diminishing. Seriously, get off your horse, dude.

"Fuck your lives, I want to read about video games."

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:34 AM +

You weren't here all the way through and I don't blame you for being so offended.

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:36 AM +

So, you're bitching about people bitching about their life instead of bitching about video games?

Really cool bro.

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:36 AM +

Video game stuff? You want to read video game stuff?! Give me a day and a turkey and I'll have a blog up in no time! Eversion!

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:38 AM +

I'm not bitching. Just a suggestion. There's something wrong with VuTales right now and I really do feel like it's dead. We're obviously doin' it rong.

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:39 AM +

Didn't want to lash out, wasn't insulting you; if that's what you thought I was doing.

Me not being here "all the way through" doesn't mean I can't differentiate between content and bullocks. All that matters is that the poster is passionate about the subject and posts what's important to them. That's what makes good blogs. I'll like ANY blog that someone puts some thought or heart into.

(That's not to say I do. I post my blogs because I need somewhere to say how I truly feel without offending people. Most of it is not "content.")

No you're bitching. Like real single mom bitching.

When I say I don't wanna read your QQs is because I'm getting sick of it. I'm not saying that you should all stop (not like you would listen if I said so anyway, but I'm not). I'm saying we need more... other things. We need to dilute the life drama with some less serious stuff, which, IMO, would work best with video game content as we all relate to that.

Nass, how is your vacation? Please don't troll. Thank you.

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:47 AM +

Do you know the difference between trolling and stating your opinion? Nooooooo
Are YOU QQing because people aren't doing what YOU want them to do. Yessssss

And my vacation was doing quite well, until I was told my brother was banned, so I came back to "talk" to some people.

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:50 AM +

Nass, I do feel that there are a lot of people who feel similarly to me on this topic. Please don't try to use an opinionated statement as a subjective argument.

Sat Jul 03, 2010 04:54 AM +

If there's lolomg so much people who feel the same way (since we are only like 20 ACTUAL PEOPLE) how come no one did jack shit. Are you the "fearless leader" or something?

Nass, you should check out this thread. Here, you've been acting very violent to others as of the last 6 months.

K he already said in his blog about it being ironic that he is complaining about complaining. Get over that.

And if you are just stating an opinion, SO IS HE. This blog is an opinion. Agree or disagree, don't take everything to heart and cry about it.
