I have been here quite some time. I started out mostly just watching anime. Then, I lurked the forums for quite some time. Eventually I started actively posting in the forums, been a couple years now I think.
It was really rough at first. After getting teased, I changed my avatar. (Originally it was a photo, and I was teased for my appearance). Also I rarely create threads, as that doesn't tend to go well for me.
And honestly, I still constantly feel invisible. Seems like maybe 10% of my posts get a reply? Sometimes I go over a week without getting a reply.
Sometimes I feel masochistic for even bothering to post. But we all crave human communication, and as the majority of people I know in real life I have almost nothing in common with, at least knowing I am in the company of other anime lovers somehow makes me feel less lonely sometimes.


It's okay bro, I notice you.

True words, these. Nevertheless, a ban (even a permanent IP ban) can really only help you so much. A committed troll can and will get around these bans.

I don't think it was rough for me to get used to here. Crunchyroll does have a much nicer community compared to reddit or tumblr for example. Those people there are rude. If you talk to people nicely, they'll be nice to you.

Guess your right on with that analysis when ever a thread starts turning to religion or bible thumping about sexuality might interest on the thread immediately stops and I pack my well thought up quotes and move on down the page lol not a big fan of cyber bullies either no interest nada zip nothing check pls

Established members? Who are they? It just a forum, post what you want according to the rules. There's no need to spend time worrying over getting acknowledgements over posts treat it like a rant or being on a soap box. Give your two cents or a penny of your thoughts if you wish.

Ever feel invisible? This may vary depending on how extroverted one is, but its been something of a pain sometimes talking to the established names, but enough about me, what do you think? Do you think its rough? Did you have it rough when you first got here? Be as descriptive as you want to be! I'm happy to be here and all, and my focus is on anime, but sometimes , eh, its feels icky trying to talk on here. So who feels my pain? Who here thinks I'm dumb?

Personally I can't be excessively extroverted because that isn't me, but I try.




It feels normal to me and I am a pretty shy person. I feel everyone is equal. You can't be better than anyone on a forum, maybe better off in life but on a forum we are the same.
I just post on threads and reply to people/topics I find interesting.

Thanks everyone for all the honest feedback and replies you've shared, we are all the same here really. I'm grateful for the overall maturity level, and noone really came on this thread trolling. Honesty is all I really wanted and now I don't feel so alone here anymore, thanks!
