DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Good Bye to DragonMount

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking a lot of folks aren't going to know what to do with themselves anymore.

I'm thinking quite a few people need to get a real life. I've been thinking that for some time now. Get a life, people. This is fantasy. These are books. If you spent as much time and energy on real life endeavors as you've spent on a set of fantasy books, you probably have saved the world from itself by now.

 

But noooo. They like living in a fantasy world. So they're going to:

 

1. Spend a month or so arguing about what really happened or should have happened and complaining that their pet theories weren't done justice.

2. Spend another month or so dissecting the books looking for continuity errors.

3. Argue about whether their newly discovered continuity errors are really errors, or just events which unfolded in an unexpected direction.

4. Parse the chapters trying to decide which parts, sections, passages, words were written by RJ and which by Brandon.

5. Buy advance tickets for DragonCon or ComicCon to ask Brandon and Harriet "Why did they... Why didn't they..."

6. Spend a month or more sewing new WoT costumes to wear to DragonCon or ComicCon.

7. Organize a letter-writing campaign to garner support for the outrigger novels and/or an HBO series.

8. Complain that the WoT encyclopedia website isn't being updated fast enough.

 

And finally,

9. Try to decide whether to substitute their WoT obsession with an obsession for The Stormlight Archive, or the Song of Ice and Fire, or Batman movies because heaven forbid they should have to walk away from any sufficiently detailed fantasy and rejoin The Real World.

 

You trying to sound like a douchebag or is that just a talent you've acquired naturally?

 

Edit: I'm not nearly as articulate as Mr Ares. Just call em how I see em.

Douchebag? Well, if that's where you imagine that splash on water on your face came from, fine with me.

 

Mr Ares says he likes being immersed in his fantasy world. Sort of an on-line expert of all things WoT.

 

Your motives seem.... different.

Personally, I think that as long as there is a Dragonmount, there will be people being wrong on Dragonmount. And as long as there are people being wrong on Dragonmount, there will be a need for Mr Ares to correct people. And when there is no longer a Dragonmount, he can wander off to some other distant, desolate corner of the internet, and find people to give a verbal kicking to until they agree that he is right.

*laughs*

That's solid proof Dragonmount will -at the very least- exist untill one of us is no longer able to write posts then!

Because if you're going to be here, you'll probably need correcting!

 

@Mr Ares & Ashaman Kovan;

Do not feed the Kestrel.

Obvious trolling is obvious.

Yeah I know man. Can't help it sometimes. I don't understand idiots who try and flame people for being invested in a fantasy series while they themselves are posting in the forums about it.

I'm looking forward to having Friday nights free again after 14 years spending them here. I guess I'll go back to doing whatever I did when I was 18 for fun.

After that, I think I'll just slink off and sulk.. :wink:

Does reality really support your stated opinion or observations? If folks were as far gone as you state, there is good chance that many would not have a roof over their head (or the internet connection to go with it). The people you deride would not be able to participate in these forums. Heck, they would not have a shelf to set their books upon.

Yah im pretty sure i wont be comming back on to Dragonmount after the last book is out. Over the last few days readign over various peoples threads and topics and post has really put me off the site. Seems to be that no matter what some dickhead comes along and starts talking shit about everything, and it has really put me off the site for sure.

I'm starting to feel like they should change the name from Dragon Mount to Brandon Bash.

 

No shit thats seems to be all that happens anymore. I am a stay at home dad and this site really helped with my day being able to read up on stuff now its more like sifting through stuff to get to the good parts, not very enjoyable at all.

Very easy to manage the "ignore" list on your profile. That would sift out much of what you don't want to see. It's kind of a tough circle at this point to be honest. The people actually bashing are few and far between of course, most have very valid critiques/thoughtful posts. Regardless they are attacked just the same for their views which really tells you all you need to know.

Yeah, I feel a bit sorry for folks like you that are new to the site. I've been here for five years, and it used to be much, much more enjoyable. I can understand people's problems with his writing, a lot of them have valid critiques. But literally, and I mean literally, every single thread, no matter the topic, at one point or another (Usually within the first three posts) devolves into people talking about how shitty a job he's done. Whether their critiques are valid or not, some people could at least do others the courtesy of keeping it isolated to the many threads already devoted to how shitty a job they think he's done. But they have this insufferable need to pollute every thread with it. As if it hasn't already been made abundantly clear by them many times over.
