Default Remember The God Ol' Days...

I used to really enjoy coming on these forums. A while ago they were the best forums i'd ever been on with pretty good threads going roundand only intelligent posters such as Flash and Nitemare giving their opinions.

Then all of a sudden WE was taken over by piles and piles off n00bs. Now all we have is piles of morons spamming in some of the most ridiculous threads i've ever heard of, arguing with each other and acting like they know everything that there possibly is to know.

Oh well, rest in peace the WE of old, you will be sorely missed.

It's called growth. However, we are going to go through banning ALL morons very shortly. It has already begun, though.

Stick around. Things will get better.

What is really annoying is the amount of new threads people make, especially when it's overdone and in the wrong forum. It's annoying, but...yeah...Good*

I'm glad to hear it, and i'd be more than willing to help anyway I could, but I gotta say, that's one hell of a task, and a thankless one at that.

Once WE got to this gigantic stage it lost the sense of community that it once had. I dislike aspects of this "new W-E" but mostly find myself visting here out of boredom more than any sense of comardary or the enjoyment I once had for the place.

This new generation of WE forum members is a product of the general age and maturity of a majority of these new posters and the hierarchy which they model themselves on. What is left of the older generation either don't vist often enough or don't really care what happens as what they viewed as being "there WE" has long since faded into the distance. Wrestling-Edge has always been one of the popular news sites, who are (and I mean no offence by this to Amish it is just an observation on my part) are all rank and uniform, by which I mean they all offer the advertising pitch (ie. softcore pornography which attracts any male or female wrestling fan over a certain age which doesn't have to be the legal one, these people are of course WE, WZ, PWS, NoDQ and other sites key demographic, while an older group might take there news from PWInsider and PWTorch, these will not take news unless it has been scourced from these) and get there news from the same or similar sources. WE has been a sucessful one.

The forums have for the most part been well run in all the time I've been here. While I have not always agreed with some aspects of how this forum has been run, nor have I been a fan of some of the staff members (and some of them have not been all that fond of me). Of course the general maturity of the forum as a whole now seems to me to be of a low standard (to me at least, but I would put this down examples set by some members and the ages of some members), which is what sends me to other smaller forums.

One always seems to glorify what has been, I would bet my life in two or three years time someone who has just began posting here will say how it has "gone to hell".

Those are just my observations anyway.

in a span of 3 months ago noobs coming in like mybraves and his 4 other name, sikkshooter,bigstank, precious bass, santa with muscles, the hurricane mark icey gregorio plenty of people who come in here and make crap posts about chuck which are unacceptable. Plenty of people try to come back when they are banned for being stupid and making crap posts. When I came on the forums last november no one made anything crap posts about people but I can hardly say what happened in the past years from when I joined but It seems that more and more assholes come o in and screw things up.

I liked W-E in 2003 and still like it now, although I liked it better in 2003.

That's around the time I joined, and I do agree that the sense of community is gone. When you came here you knew who people were the majority of frequent posters were of a much more mature nature than of that we have today.
