When I found this website, I was ecstatic. I was new to yo-yoing and I was eager to learn about tricks and yo-yo products, and also to join a community of people who shared a common interest. So I watched videos, posted a few responses here and there, and joined a couple interesting conversations. What’s more, I read the forum rules and got even more excited. Proper grammar and spelling; respect for one another; professionalism. Awesome. Perhaps this is a place where discussion of (common) personal interest is the only concern.
Sadly, this place doesn’t feel so much like home anymore. Poor grammar, spelling that would make a 3rd grader sick, and attitude. I am very saddened to see this progression. I reach out to all of the members of the forum, not just the offenders. Let’s tighten our belts and straighten our ties. Take pride in what you write and how you sound. Be kind to one another, don’t discriminate. Share the wealth of knowledge, don’t show off. Help others without putting them down.
Come on people, let’s get this place back to the high standard that caught my attention.
