…You guys do realize that your complaining about the OP’s complaining is even more annoying than the OP’s complaining to begin with right? It’s to the point where you got me complaining about you guys complaining about the OP’s complaining!
In all seriousness, though, it’s a yoyo forum guys. It doesn’t need to be strictly governed by a rigid measure of productivity resulting from each thread. It’s a place for us to come together as a community to voice our opinions, get help from each other, or sometimes even just vent.
True, the posts like this do get annoying after so many of them pop up, but if I could shed some light on a little secret here: every time someone flames this thread, it shoots right back up to the top, making it more visible to people browsing the forum and therefore less likely for it to die anytime soon. That’s the only reason I found this thread today because it was the most recently posted-in thread.
And for those of you too proud to admit to the inherent annoyances of this hobby (just as in any other hobby or activity one could be involved in), then I can only sigh and shake my head.
For instance, of course it’s annoying that after a year of throwing, I have to cross my fingers and pray for a decent boingy boing every time I go to do one.
It’s annoying that Guy Wright is so amazing at yoyoing and I can’t figure out some of his best tricks even when watching it in slo-mo and repeat over and over.
It’s annoying that even if I was to learn his tricks, it’d take me twice as long to get them as smooth as him.
It’s annoying that I feel like I need to learn those tricks that are so far out of my reach just because they’re so awesome.
It’s annoying that there’s no yoyo shop reasonably within a reasonable distance of me so that I can try out new throws before I buy them.
It’s annoying that there’s soooo many awesome new throws that have come out recently that I wish i had the money for…
I could go on but that doesn’t mean that I think any less of yoyoing as a whole. If you can’t approach the situation with humor (which I believe was the point of this thread in the first place), you’re taking it way too seriously.
Moreover, if you don’t have any constructive feedback, skip it altogether.
