everyone keeps saying people say we’re a bunch of elitist assholes but ive never personally had anyone say that to me directly so im just going to assume that the people who say that dont actually talk to us so how could they know what we’re like??????
yeah but i want to tell a story to everyone, not just my rp partner. id rather leave private rps for more self indulgent things and not things like ‘wow i worked a lot on this i wish i could show everyone and make them feel a thing’
besides would things really be better if we all decided to close our askblogs and do things privately instead?
dont say butthurt, youre not butthurt, its fine
but yeah the fandom has changed a lot and im personally really tired and constantly wonder why im still here but then i remember i really love telling rockys story and playing with my friends, so…yeah. i try to ignore the things that bother me most of the time but sometimes i just cant.
people usually tag reblogs as simply ‘askblogs’ and make posts in the ‘thslive’ tag (although this tag is supposed to be for liveblogging and commentary people sometimes use it to make PSA like when the wiki was made and stuff)
but if its something like. fanart or fanfic youd like to post, id recommend using the character and ship tags.
changing the name ‘thneedville high’ would be a lot more complicated because we’d have to ask EVERYONE who has an askblog in ths if theyre okay with that and stuff and then some people might not wanna change it and then maybe others want a specific name yadda yadda yadda its complicated. so im 99% sure its staying like that.
no im pretty aware that ive changed. i used to be a lot nicer, but alas, im only human and this fandom has taken a huge toll on me and things can get really freaking stressful sometimes hahahaha. if youre stressed, well, i dont know what to tell you other than ‘same’ and ‘im sorry’. i dont have the energy to be how i used to be a year ago, and its one of the reasons why i dont get on this blog that often anymore. however i still try to be nice, as nice as i can without letting myself get walked over of course. im not saying that this is the case, but it almost seems as if people expect us to just take peoples bullshit with a smile and we just cant. so im really sorry if we seem edgy at times. we do what we can.
also im sure people mean no harm when they use the wrong tags (unless theyre assholes but im sure thats not the case) and thats why im trying to remind them not to use them anymore, because like i said, its not cool.
word. also if people are worried about tag organization and not wanting go change for that reason then i would like to point them to this: dev.goose.im/tags/#_… which will allow them to change all their old tags to a new one if they want
if keeping their tags consistent is REALLY that big a deal for people then here ya go dev.goose.im/tags
well there you have it. now theres no excuse
im trying really hard to ignore the word butthurt up there but whatever
tagging things wrongly does cause harm. because then other people are gonna see original characters tagged as oncelers and theyre gonna assume thats what they are when theyre NOT they dont even look like oncelers anymore idek what people must think of us at this point
none of the mods want people thinking their characters are oncelers at this point
a few months ago someone posted in the spook tag like ‘hey where is this guy from he looks cool??’ and someone went like ‘hes from the onceler fandom or smth’ and the person was like lol nope nvm bye
those askblogs are not oncelers. they are not part of the onceler fandom anymore.
ive been trying not to say anything for a YEAR but i think its time to drop the whole onceler thing already because most of us dont want that stuff attached to our characters. it does hurt when people tag them that.
i was a bit ehh about saying this because i know people keep the tags for organization purposes but dude im not asking them to retag everything, im just asking them to please PLEASE start using a new tag instead. ‘askblogs’ is fine, a lot of people use it.
i dont think you realize how important this is to the mods, so please think again before saying we’re being ‘a little butthurt’ and ‘its just a tag, its not gonna cause any harm’.
is it acceptable for us to ask people to stop tagging our characters with lorax related tags
i mean its been a year. like. an entire year has passed since they got deoncelerized
so why are people still doing this???
im sorry if i seem angry but dude those are our characters why are you tagging them that
