I’ve seen it happen so many times on this website - someone posts a thread in the wrong place (or even something that should’ve been in another thread, but the post was still in the right area) - and some members feel it is their duty to insult the living hell out of that person and absolutely light them up, rather than help out.
I think the problem of people writing stuff in the ‘wrong’ place can happen on other sites, but it’s the attitude of how it seems to be addressed on SRK
This is the type of attitude that prevents the FGC from growing… not many new comers are going to come and stick around when they get lit up for a single mistake in the forum. I get that it can be super annoying and of course have seen stuff in the wrong area too, but for a ‘community’, it sure doesn’t feel like one.
We need to open up and be more social and friendly as a whole, to help attract newcomers instead of deter them and help grow the scene. A lot of things that you can google will lead you to this site, however it will lead you to a thread with someone being a dick saying post somewhere else, rather than anything helpful. Keep that in mind!
