Yo, just a friendly reminder to keep arguments down to a minimum and discussions civil. We have a new leak from Piuk, so that's something new at least
4chan is an 18+ website, and as such we do not want to expose our underage users to that site.
You may post screen shots and text from 4chan, but direct linking to the site or its archival sites is not allowed.
You know what offends me, as basically the top staff member of Bulbagarden? This kind of post, and the people who are out of their mind enough to like it, despite the previous public notice about liking bullying post.You really don't add any new info into discussion, do you?
You keep repeating the same points over and over again, despite people have already proven that your logic is wrong for many many times.
Religion offends people? Arceus, Tornadus and Landorus would like a word with you.
I know we might all think it's a good laugh that you're talking in a needlessly complex pointlessly pretentious manner, but let's be real here, you're only writing that way because you don't respect other people's opinions. You use needlessly complex jargon to mask the fact that these types of posts are arrogant and antagonising, and really only exist to to diminish the importance or relevance of other people's posts.Good Riley; if I may be so intrepid as to tender an alternative modus operandi of expressing your most valued opinion on the current subject: This is "probably" fake, or "more than likely" fake, or perhaps simply "I think" this is fake, or I "believe" this is fake. You see? Doesn't that anthology of possible replies ring of a bit more consideration for other feasible opinions other than your own? If I may also serve you a compliment , may I express that of any pokemon type, you remind me most, perhaps, of the noble rock type; your thoughts are strapping and sturdy, and your words seem to demonstrate a strong foundation and much credence in your beliefs- truly admirable to be sure! However, we must always remember that a bit of tact can go a great distance in this our walk of life.
Genwunner is considered a derogatory term, and should not be used. It is a term that is against the rules.Also, are we allowed to say genwunner on Bulbagarden if we're not calling any specific person that, or is this discussion technically against the rules?
What even is this thread?
Every time I log in there’s like...5 new pages, which makes me think something meaningful is being discussed.
The thread should be renamed ‘Official Generation 8 Semantics & Pedantry Discussion Thread’
I totally understand that there’s very little actual news to feed on at the moment, I get it, we’re all hungry. But having scanned the last few pages (regrettably. there’s some time I’ll never get back) it looks like a few people have tried to interject with some cool ideas and Wishlist sort of stuff, only to be drowned out by... well... bickering.
The reason why we have a Bad Sportsmanship rule on the forums is to ideally address exactly what you both are concerned about. We had a PSA posted about this last March because of the lack of respect for people's ideas which is unfortunately common in this thread. But that's the nature of speculation; there's going to be a lack of concrete evidence for a lot of what's posted here, and there's nothing wrong with that. And people are going to say why they don't agree with what was shared, and there's nothing wrong with that either. Ultimately, the goal is to spur discussion, and so the key is making your arguments respectfully.They should change the thread's name from "Speculation and leaks" from "trying to have fun about SPECULATING but some people seems to don't understand what speculate and having fun is" I think that it's more accurate.
