A trend I am seeing in the gaming community is players complaining that they can't seem to make friends and they have to solo everything. I personally can't wrap my head around this one. Yes, it may be harder in real life to make friends (I'm one of those more out-going people who it comes more naturally to), but in an online world? You should have no excuse unless you have some mental block that just won't allow you to socialize with others. Making online friends really shouldn't be as hard as people make it seem.
Just being positive to others makes a community better. I noticed since I returned to an old game and ignored all the nastyness and was just nice to everyone I came across they in turn seem to be nicer to others too. I'm not saying that it was because of me. I'm just saying I contributed to healthy communication which in turn made me more friends and everyone else around me seem more friendlier and less "trollish."
I think other people need to try this out before saying that their community sucks and that they solo everything. I personally think that it's the individual's fault if they have no friends in a game because it really isn't that hard to make them. Join a guild, talk, be active within your community and you will see a difference. I've made so many friends by just running across someone while doing something and striking up a conversation. It really isn't as hard as it sounds. Trust me.
