    So you must feel that actually scientific studies about guys playing gal toons or vise versa are trollish also eh why do you yourself notice such threads that do come up? Trollish I think not after all many studies feel people love to RP learn that word. You will be surprised on how big it is today look up Larping or Cosplay lmao Kudos to your thousand replies but my first thread has Millions of people who care about role playing vs the thought of playing in a sandbox world. RP MMO's are after all Still at top of the gaming market not so much sandbox games. Oh hey I did not know they gave out titles or achievements here for threads? I want mine for wining the Lets-Play-a-Game.. thread.

    They are troll threads because, lets face it, most of them are troll threads (about that subject anyway) or in the very least they attract a huge number of troll replies. It all comes down to childish implications about someone's latent sexual orientation. Or some other nonsense.

    Reading into someone's character is as scientific as astrology or phrenology.

    Looking at my history... I guess Bards: Where Are They? was my first thread. It had 33 replies in it.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    any first topic i did make, probably pertained to game news

    Taking a look at your first recorded thread Nightfall preview I found it encouraging that you wanted to exprice excitement over the latest tier set for GW. Nicely done.

    Hmm, a sobering excercise.  Seems when I first joined MMORPG.com I was still a WOW fan, and spent many of my first posts defending the title.  image  How times have changed.

    As for my first thread, looking back about 285 pages I found what I believe to be my first one, and once again, my noobness clearly shows through.

    http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/post/1045722#1045722

    I created an ill-thought out poll that dealt with my concern regarding potential imbalance in the 2 faction combat system that the upcoming title Warhammer might experience. (which I was spot on, just didn't correctly identify why it might occur)

    What I didn't realize is MMORPG players don't neccessarily chose a faction based on how attractive characters look in a MMORPG (sometimes they do I realize) or whether one side is good or evil, but the single most important factor apparently is how bad ass they look/act. (wearing lots of black/red of course)

    Unfortunately, my lack of research prior to creating my poll pretty much killed my thread, and it only ran for 62 posts.

    I've since learned the tricks of the trade when it comes to choosing forum topics, and if you really want to get a thread rolling hot you must 1st choose a good topic, generally something like promoting F2P, shouting that grouping is better than soloing, or defending some reprehensible behaivor such as Clawson did. image

    Also one must be extremely accurate and precise in the OP or people will derail the thread entirely, falling all over themselves to point out how "FAIL" it is in the first place. image

    Tyvm I agree 100% and hey we were all noobish at thread posting one time or anouther.image

    Actually I read that thread and thought your concerns for AOC was valid. And it seems so do Devs of MMO's today for it seems that is no longer a issue with today's MMO's who knows maybe Devs do take note on these forums after all? IDK

    TY I actually miss games like A Bards Tale one of my very first computer games. To this day there is not many Bard classes in MMO's it is a shame.

    I didn't get the graphics card, it was some other prize in the same contest. It's been long enough I don't even remember what I won. It might be where I got my MX510 mouse that's still kicking along.

    Did you misread his post? Why bother digging up "proof" that he plays RPGs when he already signed his post "P&P GM for 6 years"?

    Even if you didn't know when you created the thread, bringing up the subject of guys playing female avatars is troll territory. People have very strong opinions on the topic and will start a shitstorm over them at the drop of a hat. There's no worthwhile discussion to be found in such a thread.

    Oh? How so after all this comunity just has a very friendly thread just a day or two on this very subject.

    In the GW2 forums and er um no trolling was in that one. No strong opionios were made and acualy it was a worthwhile didcussion so I do not see were you get your facts from?

    The problem is, if you are old enough, your first actual post will be before mmorpg.com changed their forums.  Well, whatever they did.  I can't remember anymore, but the format changed and I lost the first two years of posts.  I know my first post was about SWG...
