When did Overgrowth pick up the Internet People?

Post by Pengwertle » Thu Aug 08, 2013 9:23 am

EDIT: This was me thinking that the entire Internet is one big Youtube comments section. Move along.

I've been looking through these forums, and it seems that all the people who've been here for more than a few years ARE NOT Internet People. It's a remarkable thing. But then The Internet People came, and this thing turned into a generic internet forum.

This is not to say I'm not glad Wolfire is getting the attention it deserves, but I find that when forums do not have Internet People, it's a sign that the community is very good. For example, I love RPS, as it's forums, as far as I can tell, have almost no Internetians, which is stupidly rare.

The question I wish to ask is: when did you guys start seeing these people?

I swear, RPS is some kind of anomaly in space-time from a kind of Utopian future-Internet.

This is not clear enough, I'm asking for a real example. That's right, point yer fingers.

EDIT: I SAID MOVE ALONG DARN IT WHY ARE YOU STILL READING?

Like, the people who post endless threads of "I HAZ A UNIK IDEU IZ BOWZ!". And people like that guy who started the "Randomness" thread. Basically, people who are unwilling or unable to just have an intelligent conversation.

They are really darn weird, I know. I've learnt to ignore the Pony Trolls by now though 8)

I suggest you just ignore the Randomness thread and it's ilk and move on to greater pastures such as the modding forum or... umm, darn, they're everywhere! :shock:

Let me tell ya something. It tends to be internet people that play games, and have intelligent discussions about them. I don't know where you got this idea otherwise, but it's false.

Is it perchance the people who spend enough time on internet forums to start seeing patterns in posting behavior, labeling people by those patterns, and then make posts with meta discussions about those labels on unrelated indie gaming dev boards?

(anyone who responds to this post with: "I see what you did there :wink: " is an internet person)

Actually, tl;dr. And I joined 'bout 5 years ago!

I'm not sure what the TS means. Unless he is referring to the BBS days, hasn't this always been an internet forum? The internet must have changed.

Is having "internet people" buying our game seriously bad? It's not like it'd be bad for Wolfire, not even mentioning the fact that nobody knows what you're talking about.
Also, Nerdcubed has done Overgrowth a pretty big favor by making an Overgrowth video. Soo many people are here because of Nerd.

EDIT: Fine. FINE! Keep reading. I hope you enjoy yourself. I get better after this anyway.

OK, the ratio of Internet People to Normal People Who Use The Internet is way higher than I had previously thought. I need to evacuate immediately. I'm pretty sure Timbles and Akazi are the only ones who get it.

Bye, have fun with your memes, and I hope you're all able to fit enough insults into your replies to make yourselves feel superior. Be sure to squeeze in a few homophobic comments as well. If you regularly do all of that, you're an Internet Person. If you don't, I'm sorry, I may be contaminated if I stay here.

This thread you've created is irrelevant, uninformative, and just plain stupid. You know what? I think "internet people" make better posts than this on the daily. Get down off the pedestal. Before you criticize anyone, why don't you back up your worth?
