Lately, I've been hearing a lot about people leaving the site. Its mainly coming from my friends, but I see the occasional blog from someone I don't know. There are many reasons for people leaving, like too many haters, stupidity of the community or they are just getting bored of the site. We can change that, if we just put our minds to it.

Now, haters are everywhere. Just trolling and trying to make you feel bad. They feed off sadness. Trolls are just here to make us feel bad, and that is their only purpose. They feed off sadness and anger, because it makes them happy to see that they are getting to you. They are sadists. Sadists are someone who enjoys seeing others in pain or sadness. For example, one of my friends is getting bullied on their submissions. They are thinking of leaving PMC because there is just too much hate. There is one thing Skrillex taught me: "There will be hate, but there are people who love it. So forget the haters and focus on the people who like it." So, if everyone just ignores the trolls, they will eventually die out. We need to be optimistic.

Here is an example of someone who was hating on my friend:

I really don't have much to say about stupidity in the community, because I'm trying not to offend people, so I will keep this short. People in this community can be stupid sometimes. It is mainly breaking of the rules. It could be spam in the chat, stealing skins or texturepacks, or posting offensive things. Why do people break the rules though? Well, there is two reasons: They don't know the rules (but they should) or they are breaking them just to be a troll. This causes the moderators grief, and it affects some of us in the community as well. It is annoying and stupid. The community is growing more stupid everyday. But we need to change that, I don't know how yet, either it will be mods being way more strict, or some other way. We just need to flag the submissions that are against the rules and move on with our lives. No one should be quitting because of this.

Here is an example of some people breaking the rules in the chat while no mods were there:

People getting bored of the site. That is my last point. There is no way we can prevent this, because people have their own opinions. People are getting bored because things truly amazing rarely get posted on this site. Now, I'm not forcing you guys or anything, but we just need to try harder to impress people. Instead of making a skin that has been done 50 times, create something original. Instead of building a plain boring house, be creative and make something that has never been done before. Instead of creating a 4x4 boring texturepack, create a beautiful HD one. We just need to believe in ourselves and others. Encourage people, don't put them down. Becase hate crushes dreams, and crushed dreams mean no creativity. We need to believe.

I'm trying to shine light on this situation, trying to bring hope to ones who have lost it. Ignore the haters, help the moderators take care of the rule breakers and believe in yourself. That is what you guys should have learned from reading this today. We need to come together in justice and help the ones in need, help the community, and help ourselves. We need to be optimistic. We shouldn't quit. We should try.

Im also wondering why everyone has started packing their bags and leaving.
Apparently it's the popular reel...
I get their problem with it, but it isn't something to leave over.
Here's a perfect example:
My good friend, Knarfer left today.
It was due to the popular reel,

I seriously wish people would stop doing this... :(

Yeah i recently got in a fight and ended up deleting everything on my profile because two people were harrassing me claims i stole a skin (which i didn't) and it got pretty aggravating. I thought about leaving this sight forever because of all the hate comments
speaking of quoting song lyrics, just quote the entire song 'vitriol' by Bluejuice. its pretty much about not giving a damn about what others think of you. good song too.

There will always be hate, and maybe the guy in the first picture was right. He sais the skins the other guy made, sucked. Maybe that's true, maybe it's not. His opinion. I don't even think he's a troll. Trolls don't excist, they are just people who have bad times in real life or are just bored.

And about the stupidity, it's just pathetic. I got 2.5k comments on my submissions, and I SWEAR 600 of them are just insanely dumb. I kinda start to think alot of the PMC members are just retarded, really.
I mean, I post an installation video, and people ask how to install it. I mean COME ON DUDE!!!!!! Now you probably think, that's not that bad. But if you get 5 shitty comments like that a day, you'll understand what i mean.

And finally, about the "people are getting bored" part, it's true. People DO are getting bored, and there is NO way we can change it. The only reason I stay on this site is the feedback I get on my mods and texture packs. But honestly, the only enjoying stuff on this site is Sphax PureBDCraft, all of disco_'s work, ad Mightypork's mods. 90% of the other stuff on this site has been made before = boring.

Well, you kind of have to remember a lot of the community is under the age of 12... So some people aren't that smart... Or mature... :l

And the only reason I'm still here is mainly because of the friends I've made and this is really the only good community website to get mods and texturepacks. I also enjoy seeing things from other people... Not skins. Because I don't visit the skin section anymore. I only go in there when I'm flagging Steve skins. And the amount of crap put in there is immense.
Hmm, yeah. Most of the PMc members indeed are under the age of 12. But that doesn't mean they have to act "retarded" xD
And I actually never visit the skin section, only mods, blogs and texture packs. The rest is full of crap indeed.

Guys, don't loose hope! We CAN still do this! Let's say something we can do like this: OPERATION: HUNGER GAMES.



1. Make alot of friends

2. Tell them the site is dying and you need their help!

3. Tell them that you need to post "save pmc" skins, blogs, fourms, servers, mods, projects, etc. and get everyone to join in! Even the haters!



Just like in the hunger games you need alot of people to trust you!!!!!!1one!!!!111oneone!!!111!!!one!!1111cake!!!!111!

they should ban all of those jerks! but people, stark making quality stuff. you need to put effort in your submissions that's the only way to get views, downloads ect... leaving is not the solution. delete the bad submissions and start overnew, and delete all of the bad comments :)

Another reason that people leave is because they believe their quality work has been underrated and they feel as though they have wasted their life on that submission... So they leave and focus on something they believe will be more fulfilling. Personally I think nothing is more fulfilling than the people on PMC, but many other people don't see it that way.

It would be very hard to do that, it would take days for Cyprezz to delete everything. Also seeing that he just moved everything over to new servers not to long ago, I see no point.

Thankies :3
I know a troller in real life, he is in the class next to me and he trolled me on Youtube.
Okay, I admit my video's aren't near the 5 star quality but they were funny. Since I only own Windows Moviemaker and a beautifull old-school camera I acted myself and made some comedies. (Wich were very funny.) That troll spreaded my work over Facebook (and thereby insulting my privacy rights.) to other trolls I know from school. Since then I got teased everyday with my own little piece of art. I had no choice but to remove the stuff. Yes I told my and their teachers about it but that doesn't prevent the spread on Facebook. No I removed it, I am no longer teased but I feel bad if I think about because I they limit me in creativity. If it was all trough cyberspace and I didn't know the troll then there was no problem. I would simply hit the ignore button or something.

So, this PlanetMinecraftCommunity might be able to slow down trolls but no website or guidelines can protect you from getten trolled in real life. But further I totally agree, I thought let's say something usefull.

Yea, because PMC is getting clogged up by... Submissions that aren't that good... If you know what I mean. Maybe there needs to be a system put in for constructive criticism, like on Deviant Art. They have that 'request critiques' thing for premium members. Maybe there should be an option to request critiques and people (with enough experience) can give them advice an such. Then that way people might stop trolling, and people wouldn't get bored of the community because then everyone would be making better stuff thanks to the critiques.

Don't worry I'm sure most of them will come back a string of people threatening to leave has happened before. As a matter of fact I think you were threatening to do so at one point weren't you not yet here you are. Just be patient most people don't actually leave permanently just give them time to cool down from whatever there mad about. There just being over dramatic.
