My questions are...

1) What's the average age of the people here?

2) It seems that there a few forummers here that are disliked, is there a specific reason or example of how they become disliked or are they just like that from the start?

I guess that's about it. I think I will lurk a bit more before donating or purchasing a premium account.

1) I'd say 18-19, though there are certainly younger and older.

2) They did that to themselves through either a) terrible posting or b) just being annoying.

TRC is right: Anyone with a serious karma deficit earned it, through douchebagery or other reasons.

Think before you post, and then realize that the worst that can happen to you is that some guys on an internet forum might not like you afterwards.

2.see goatstack, kapn xaos threads. Actually people take posting way too serious and dont have much of a real life or self esteem so they try to vent on people online.

1. Most likely between 18-20. There are a few forumers who do not fit the mean average. Several are over thirty, while there are a few who are younger than 16. INTL is open to people of all ages.

2. If you keep up with the ToS, post with confidence, and think while posting, you most likely wont fall under the example of those who are disliked. Some are disliked from the start, others gain it through time. There are even examples where a forumer who was originally disliked has ended up being very respected later on.

Can't really name specific examples. The examples are just as dynamic as how the people are disliked.

If you look through the Hall of Shame, you'll be able to see the absolute worst threads, and the Hall of Fame will show you some of the best. Try to stay in the middle or go towards "Hall of Fame"-type posting.

And just be yourself. If you suck, then there's not much we can do about changing that, is it?

Edit: Wait, me too.

Actually, you'd also probably need to keep in mind that people's posting style evolves as they age. Just look at some of the older threads here; pretty much everyone has changed. Posting like Flaming Arrow did 2 years ago might not be that great now, but then it was pretty much standard.

Holy Fuck!! I'm surrounded by kids...I'm in my 30's. I guess I should provide the beer when/where ever I can.

Kapn Xaos appears to be one of those forummers that appears to not care about anything and just acts all crazy to create some kind of attention whoring. (weeeee lookit meeee shit)

I don't know what the hell goatstack is trying to do. From his posts he feels like he has an identity crisis. Going by recent 'whoever changed the name...' forum, It appears that goatstack has taken akin to Kapn Xaos.

*Is 16.*

I notice that many here are in their college years, or later.

Also, I made the mistake of being a dumbass when I first came here. Don't be retarded, and post intelligently.

Oh, and don't make new threads as a newbie, unless it is truly awesome.

This helps immensely, too. Following revered examples, and seeing good posts in the Hall of Fame doesn't hurt either.

And you lot better buy me alcohol and/or crack-cocaine for presents.

Be nice, like me, and people love you. Be funny, like Smokey, and people love you. Be damn right sexy and cool, like Dani, and people love you.

It isn't hard to be liked around here. You just gotta roll with it.

1. I'm 122 years old; Jeff (Sandamnit) made this forum as my last death wish. However, they invented the artificial heart around that time and I survived along with INTL.

2. Also, the key to being popular at INTL is to either be a girl or stir up drama (these are generally synonomous).

I think the average age here has moved up a little bit, as forummers who have been here longer are getting older. Then again, we seem to get a lot of newbies. I would say the average age is 17-19. I'm 21 and I feel old.

The key here is to have a strong personality, and if you don't, then just act in confidence and you will stick out as an individual. If at first your personality does not fit in with the 'flow' of the board (which you will discover as you read along) then hide your personality and slowly let it out after you loose the newbie avatar. People will be like "holy shit, where did he/she pop out of?" Oh, and that definitely falls into the category of not starting out by making a millions sucky threads with only a link to a news article.
