When you answer a question only to find that after that someone else already answered it while you were typing, and dumb-ass embarassing double posts like I did here.

So, I was looking up how to do a certain thing in a certain game, I found someone asking the same thing as me in a forum... only, before anyone replied they replied to their own thread saying 'nvm, got it'! WTF DUDE??!!ߘᰟ I HATE that! It's just so selfish, at least reply with 'nvm, got it, it was this or that' to let other people know!

That's the worst, especially when it's a post from like 5 years ago and you know that dude is long gone.

Personally, I dislike it when mods get overly granular and try to separate every topic into a subforum, instead of letting people "generally discuss" things. *cough cough*

Not limited to gaming forums, but one thing I hate above anything else...

 

Fucking fanboys. Especially the ignorant kind á la the one Fallout fanboy dude that tweeted that the DOOM community is non-existent.

I hate rants on forums 

Well this is the AJSA. Angry is in our name and Ranting is kind of a requirement so...

 

Back on topic: I hate all of the biased opinions held towards sports games and more so the homophobic/racial slurs thrown out towards anyone suggesting that they even attempt to make a better game or one that doesn't involve you know... hilarious make out sessions between players

c5c7947c5b4363c70336620bda7dd23f_crop_no

 

or this...

It's almost enough to make me not want to play Fifa15 or Madden... but then I'd have to actually watch Football and that's not as fun as kicking people in the face after scoring a goal...

-People too blinded by nostalgia to accept any new products *cough* GTA San Andreas *cough*.

-Mean people, who cant express their opinions without sounding like a condescending arse.

My main problem is more with people (:

Individuals who can't take others criticizing what they like, often downplaying problems of their preferred product because of how blinded they are by it.

Individuals who think they're better than others because they of their choice of hardware.

Individuals who post things just to pad their post count. (Applies to any forum / community) (Also why I'm glad that the Post Counter for Off-Topic / Forum Games is off, and I can post as much as I want there XD)

Individuals who just say something because they think it's popular, without thinking it through. Even worse when they contradict themselves later.

Individuals who make long posts, but don't read other's long posts and make excuses for not doing so. (Also not exclusive to gaming forums)

Individuals who treat opinions as facts (Also applies to other forums / communities)

People who write a sentence like this one were they reply but basically don't say anything and it has nothing to do with the original post. Then they keep on rambling on and on and on and at some stage mention how they hate something like haters! which is a stupid phrase to begin with.

Individuals who dismiss something as not a problem because it doesn't affect them personally.

People who can't accept that the term "PC Master Race" is used by some unironically and keep insisting that anyone and everyone who says it means it as "Just a Joke".

When people post things that include "as you all know", "i know you'll agree with me", and/or "we need to start a revolution!". Almost everytime I see a post that includes 1 or more of those things, I either did not know that fact or its just incorrect, I 99% of the time disagree with the opinion, and as for a "revolution", no, just no. Thats not how things work.

Other than that, not much on forums annoys me apart from the fanboyism mentioned before me.

What is too large? I'm new to forums, so I'm unaware of the etiquette - is mine too large?

People who think you're not a real gamer because you haven't played some obscure Japanese game(you won't find that much here, though, thankfully).

I have signatures turned off so I don't see it. I'm speaking more than 450x150 and even worse, multiple sigs stacked horizontally and/or vertically.

Being too sarcastic to be taken seriously only to then be told you're not being sarcastic enough.

Well, I didn't expect someone to say they hate rants on an AJSA forum... You know, since that's what we do here... ('ANGRY' Joe Show Army and all that, ya know...)

Because all we will ever be to each other for the most part is text in a box- the big thing I hate in Forums is Polarisation of opinions rather than discussion.

Whilst there are a decent number of people who are on forums for a discussion and an actual exchange of ideas and opinions, all some people want is for a forum to be an echo chamber, where there own opinions are validated back to them by their peers, When someone challenges that opinion rather than discuss the reasons why they differ, threads dissolve into "You are a moron because you like x" "Well you are a moron because you like y"

Great. Both of you have learned nothing and this conversation was a waste of time. Well done.

Individuals who think that stating actual facts exempts them from being fanboys / elitists.
