I was thinking the other day about this popular forum, the members, the mods, and of course the photography matters.

One subject that kept coming back to my mind was the psychological orders or disorders that had effects on those hardcore members here, people who come in frequently to feed their obsessions, curiousity, ego, interests, etc.

Of course most members have no fear about coming here and enjoy the communal intercourse among strangers sharing their skills, ideas, experiences, materials, etc. But deep inside most of us, there is a little devil who will have some sort of the traumatic stress and compulsive anxiety - the FEAR factor :sweat:

Have we ever been in their shoes?
1. Open a thread on an innocent subject or post an image, and was immediately bombed by members - never ever dare to open another thread or post an image again.
2. Make a joke or a naughty comment, and received an infraction order from a mod - couldn't sleep for days and couldn't understand why one is under gag with a simple PM :rolleyes:,
is it because we are in a police state?
3. First time organizer and was met with a successful turnout, except that the models came late and one didnt turned up, because she felt sick in the morning around 4am when she came back from KTV - the fear in that organizer will be permanent and that the mere mention of xmm models will make him depress ...
4. TFCD shooter who would cancel all other appointments and rendezvous with buddies so that he could steal a cheap shoot with a xmm only to receive a sms at midnight - "So sorry I ..... )
5. Some serious members open a new thread on a serious, life and death subject and almost instantly some resident clowns put in their usual caps or animals antics and the whole thread became a children zoo party - the FEAR in all these serious writers always live on here ...
6. A member bought a "mint" cam and after a month somehow he found out that this mint cam has been mistressed by at least a dozen other members - the FEAR of the B&S dept is for real:devil:
7. The FEAR of been discovered having 5 clone accounts at CS - and the even greater FEAR of having to maintain the other 3 without giving any clues to the many part time CS detectives, traitors, ex-partners, little people, etc:sweatsm:

Living in fear at CS - what are they for you?:rolleyes:

There is always FEAR in our life. Either you deal it or leave it.

Not only that I see a lot of pains being suffered by some of the CSers.

Despite being ungratefully called "resident clowns", we've been trying our level best to cheer them up. :bsmilie: :sweatsm:

bro - it's just a website. your social life doesn't depend on clubsnap right?

1. if you get an infraction, then just sign up for a new username.
2. if you get harassed by other members, then just sign up for a new username.
3. if you want to talk about life and death matters, then this is the wrong forum to raise such issues.

i think a more appropriate question should be - is clubsnap degenerating?

Living in fear at CS - what are they for you?:rolleyes:
For this point...
Sincerely, I believe CS is like a small 江湖 (if translated to English, the closest I can think of is out in the open sea), where you will bump into all kinds of characters.

  • Many are here for curiosity's sake and are simply looking.
  • Many are truly here to seek advice and to learn.
  • Many are here to share their experiences.
  • A small number are simply here to vent their pent-up frustrations from their day-time working/daily lives by throwing their anger at all unsuspecting members, behind the veils of anonymity.
And the last category would be throwing fireballs at every opportunity.
I am sure amongst the CS-ers, there are younger and gentler ones who are just a tad more tender in their social experiences and these can be very much put off by such assaults.
I feel that CS is a good ground for all photographers, whatever your level.
And more importantly so, these tender members. As long as they are not arrogant and incorrigible in their behaviours and tone of words, and are truly sincere and humble in their approach, I believe they should be supported by the senior members of the forum.
Not exactly as in sheltered completely from the Molotov Cocktails, but to be patted on the shoulder as a gentle encouragement whenever they get hit as a target.

That is precisely how we would nurture our own children, isn't it?
You cannot just prevent them from going out on the street because there are gangster out there.
You just got to point the gangster out to them, and advise them not to go near them.
The best thing ever told to me as a young boy: "If they want to create trouble for you, it's never a stupid thing for you to bow your head and kept saying sorry sorry, and slowly back your way up..."

You end up as the winner.
My humble advice to all newbies here.

actually from my short experience here in CS, i find that the younger members tend to be more fearless and vocally abusive
while the older members are more matured and funny

especially true during the school holidays

'Communal intercourse' is applicable, even though 'social intercourse' is also correct, but might be more appropriate at a face-to-face gathering.

Some, regardless of age, or perhaps because of their lack of age and real life experience, prefer to be elitist, patronizing, derisive and put on a mask of intellectual or technical superiority. Without those, they loose their meaning in life. And the worst part is, they're here all year round, not just the school holidays.

1. Open a thread on an innocent subject or post an image, and was immediately bombed by members - never ever dare to open another thread or post an image again.
usually the people who open threads that are mass-bombable will have thick enough skin to open new ones. this scenario does not work.
3. First time organizer and was met with a successful turnout, except that the models came late and one didnt turned up, because she felt sick in the morning around 4am when she came back from KTV - the fear in that organizer will be permanent and that the mere mention of xmm models will make him depress ...
that's his problem. if he can't handle such a simple situation, how to handle bigger things in life?
4. TFCD shooter who would cancel all other appointments and rendezvous with buddies so that he could steal a cheap shoot with a xmm only to receive a sms at midnight - "So sorry I ..... )
like that also called fear, that one is called humsup then never get what you want. :bsmilie:
5. Some serious members open a new thread on a serious, life and death subject and almost instantly some resident clowns put in their usual caps or animals antics and the whole thread became a children zoo party - the FEAR in all these serious writers always live on here ...
children zoo party! i like!



6. A member bought a "mint" cam and after a month somehow he found out that this mint cam has been mistressed by at least a dozen other members - the FEAR of the B&S dept is for real:devil:
then buy new lor.
7. The FEAR of been discovered having 5 clone accounts at CS - and the even greater FEAR of having to maintain the other 3 without giving any clues to the many part time CS detectives, traitors, ex-partners, little people, etc:sweatsm:
why do you want clone accounts in cs?

yes, some even until very old still walking around telling people what to do, like they are the master of every trade possible... from clothings to photography to where to buy a ladder. sure have something to say to sound authoritative.
