"Advice to the Okayfamily"


  

          

Peace y'all,

Please heed my words if you don't listen to anything else I write. I have been on the Internet over 4 years now and this is one of the most peaceful spaces I have entered. In order for that peaceful family vibe to continue, you must heed my advice: IGNORE NEGATIVITY.

What does this mean? If you read a thread that is clearly inflammatory, which clearly attacks Okayartists or Okayposters IGNORE IT. LET IT SINK. Posts in this board only remain visible if people continue to respond to said posts. There is an equal and opposite reaction to everything. If you are loving and peaceful, there will be those who are hateful and warlike who try to destroy your vibe.

If you believe in keeping the family vibe here alive, please keep this message up for at least a day or so, just for everyone to see it and take heed. The moderators can't delete everything. If you ignore nonsense, it will sink and the positive discourse can continue unabated.

Feel me?

All in favor of keeping the peace can reply...negative individuals, feel free to keep marching on.

(Quest, you are truly one of the strongest brothers I know. Your humility amazes me)

Spread love,

Spirit

I know we all mean well when we see a derogatory post and respond to it by cussing out the guilty poster, but with enough folks doing that, it gives the post undeserved merit and attention. so good idea spirit.

peace.

I know you're on some "heal the world" and "feed the children" shit right now but i disagree about the "negativity" comment. I think the word you're looking for is "ignorance".

Because if you look thru this site thuroughly, (read: OkayNews, WTF section, Jazzy's journals, D's Tour journal) you will see a lot of negativity and sarcasm. These things are what give okayplayer.com a personality of its own unlike a lot of other fan sites.

There is a lot of people gettin played, jocked, picked on, glorified, ignored, and shown up all over the boards.

There is a lot of comedy on this site on would consider negativity too, most of it by the webmasters so you cant outlaw that.

But ignorant people gotta go. A joke is a joke, laff and get laffed at!

It isn't even that deep. Spirit explained what negativity to ignore in the original post. 'Inflammatory' is what's crucial:

"What does this mean? If you read a thread that is clearly inflammatory, which clearly attacks Okayartists or Okayposters IGNORE IT. LET IT SINK. Posts in this board only remain visible if people continue to respond to said posts. There is an equal and opposite reaction to everything. If you are loving and peaceful, there will be those who are hateful and warlike who try to destroy your vibe."

6. "Not the solution"
In response to Reply # 5


          

The solution for good message boards free of bullshit is good moderation. Cause even if half the people who read a post like "why are yall sooooo boring" there will still be that other have that will respond and the thread will live because it simply causes discussion.

People like simon are able to saturate the boards with bullshit cause he knows they wont be deleted. Its as simple as that. And who's gonna delete a sarcastic post by angiee?


JUST GET YO MODERATE ON MUTHAFUCKA.... yeah i said it, delete this shit! umm... AND WHAT!?!??

I'm on some "heal the world feed the children shit"? You say that like it's a bad thing (hurt the world, starve kids, right?). I know you're playing though (I hope). Anyway, my post was directed specifically to purely inflammatory messages. That means "FUCK (insert Okayplayer)". I mean, if you were on the street and someone yelled that, you would go over and get into a 20 minute discourse on why The Roots were dope, you'd just say "He's a knucklehead" and keep it moving. I'm endorsing the same here. Ignore the nonsense. You can't convince someone who says "Fuck (insert okayartist)" that said okayartist is actually dope and they have it all wrong. Let the knownots be knownots.

I even lay the smack down as a guide but to no avail. It doesn't help that every time Simon changes his name and puts up another stupid post that Quest responds and then heads must feel that well if Quest responded let me add my two cents and then thet next thing you know the shit ahs 100 replies.

Man, I posted about this in General during the Thickness saga....I got all of 8 replies two of them mine. People want to be the one to "Shoot Em Down" with their witty remarks and in the end just get the other person more amped. Like spirit said, I've been on the net for a long time too, i've seen idiots come and i've seen idiots go.....they leave faster if you don't stop em to chat....ya dig???

there's a minority that's constantly tried to promote peace for months, but to no avail...i rarely create my own threads because i already know beforehand that if it doesn't contain anything redundant, derogatory, condescending, or just plain ole' ignorant about an okayartist, that sh*t sink to the bottom of the boards like the titanic...i've seen decent questions vanish w/out any replies and redundant comments get mad responses for saying "nothin' new"...but history has proven that niggas will keep responding to gossip over reality time and time again!

obviously these types of people thrive off of attention, so if they don't get it here they'll go somewhere else to get it. If they do get attention here, they'll stay, create drama and we'll all be fighting in defense 99% of the time.
So ignore trolling asses and they'll go away

....but I agree with spirit, 100%. We've both seen the results when negativity becomes the primary focus of a public forum such as this. It's never good in the long run.
If you're posting to flame somebody about the blatantly ignorant comments they just contributed to the board, try emailing them. It saves alot of time, bandwidth, and frustration.

18. "The thing that annoys me the most is.."

not really the people who post blatantly negative and ignorant comments about the artists, but more the people who respond even more negatively in defence..that shit doesnt help! dont do it! I'll delete you!

I never catch everything though, that is why I agree with Spirit..just ignore the shit that you dont like (and this goes for ?uestlove too LOL).

whatever..nothing really works..just try to do ,you know, what spirit said.

Everyone needs to chill a bit overall, don't start these damn flame wars..Go walk outside and drink some orange juice instead of pushing buttons on a keypad wasting your time spreading ignorant negative nonsense for the sake of being angry at someone behind another computer. LOL.

I'm not putting down constructive criticism though..and I'd appreciate people to be receptive to constructive criticism and not put it down negatively..that just feeds the ish.

Whatever, I have a headache.



Peace,
Steve

I hear what you are saying but that leads to extreme boredom, if you are a fan of music. That is what I love about music that my man, Phil loves Bob Marley and I am on Peter Tosh, and we beef over it. It is only music. People just got to tow the line and remember if one hip hop cat says one thing than another will say the opposite, it has been on that ish for years.

top 5 reasons why bfnh is my hero


1. he's online right now -
all he does is play
on the internet and lose
at competitive games. he's
just ignorin' your ass....
(hak's response to th(si)ckness as to why i'm "not on the boards" (as if y'all can pull me away.....)

2. where is your individuality? where
are your catchphrases? why
do you say smut as
if you invented it?
are you REALLY offering manbutter
by the buckets? y'all
muthafuckas are jacking our slang,
i seen the same shit
happen to K(love), 3 paragraphs
in your response, trying to
wild out.
man, y'all suck ass.
(my favorite ok(semi)vet response/bitching to the new freshmen class to how the boards have....gulp uh....fallen? (fill preference here)

3.i still think you're either
in possession of two chins
or two testicles. or,
sadly, both.
(hak showing extreme strength when the enemy tries to butter him up with nicenes...nigga like me would cave in....hak goes for the jugg...er adam's apple?)

4...if you are this
22/23 year old record company
skank (didn't know i peeped
how you effed up and
claimed to different ages did
you?) then we may have
a spot for you in
team XSV. actually, i
work for a production team
Cock 'n Fist productions
we manage Dr. Cockinbush
& Mr. Fistabutt...
(nothing makes my day more than a good card pull (in this case superhak to an okaynemisis sickness )

5........ i don't need
no stinkin' okayplayer to vent
off frustration. here's a
hint - take your ass
to http://www.h8r.com and look at
the front page - see?
see? that's where i
vent......
(freedom, independence! gotta love it. i wish i was bi-postal!)

this would be a top ten list but big hak said cut down on the sigs. so i shall.

....you still gettin beat down during the 3am-6am laser blowout saturday of the reunion!!!!!!

This board can be. But, hell, show me a place that doesn't have it's ups and downs.

Thing is, the only people that can make it better are the people who post. That's what this thread is about.

If people just want to bitch about it being effed up, they are free to go somewhere better.

That doesn't help the problem.
