OP  6/30/11 2:27:13 PM#1

One of the thing passionate gamers like to do is voice their opinions about the games they love. In today's Player Perspectives, MMORPG.com's Isabelle Parsley offers some sage advice about how to write a forum post that people might actually pay attention to. Check it out and see if you agree!

The Subject Line

This is vitally important if you want people to click though to your frothing rant carefully thought-out post. First off, you need to make sure you use caps, and as many exclamation marks as will fill out the subject line.  If it doesn’t say “URGENT! DEVS PLZ READ!” nobody will care, so do not forget those. Alternately you can keep it simple: “I quit!” or “This sux!” will also guarantee that your post will grab attention.

Funny article, no doubt.  Is it possible that the same cynicism necessary to write it is precisely what the author was lampooning?  It seemed that way to me.

And if it is an official forum, don't forget to suit up in the very latest in trollwear from the game's item shop to prove you are better than mere players.

Where can I buy one of those butt-shaped mice?


Also remember, always take up as much of the screen as possible with giant wall-of-text quote blocks.

I actually avoided it on purpose - I've got too many dyslexic friends to make assumptions when it comes to spelling now.


 


Leetspeak, on the other hand... I did miss that! Doh! Don't get me started...

OP forgot the number one method of increasing forum counts, the one line post.

From the looks of it, you can play the forum troll in any color deck. It has no casting cost! HUZZAH!

Great article!  So right, on so many levels.


You did forget a couple of points, though.


One being:  VOLUME, VOLUME, VOLUME!  The poster already knows his point to be unmitigated, undeniable fact, but posting the same thing over and over, in as many threads as possible, not only jacks up your own post count, but undeniably makes one's statement "moar true".


Oh, and to let them know you're truly serious, always, and I do mean ALWAYS, state categorically that not only have you unsubbed, but that you've also UNINSTALLED!  There's no greater insult in the computer gaming world.  All who read it understand the seriousness of a game unworthy to soil the sanctity of one's harddrive.


Great article, Isabelle!

 No forum post is truly complete without at least one example of how the issue in question ruined your life and how you’ll be forever scarred by the uncaring malevolence of the developers.

 

This is a real slap in the face!! How dare you kill/maim/berate my first born child! I don't think I'll ever recover from this...

 

This article must have been a blast to write. Good read.

Take my advice, I'm not using it anyway.

Sure, this was sorta funny, but wouldn't it have been neat to actually have a well thought out post from a professional writer regarding what they would expect (personally) from something to be considered a top notch post in this particular forum? I mean, that sounds kinda boring, but maybe some of it would be absorbed subconsciously.

@ Lawlmonster - maybe I'll do that next week. That said, I'm pretty sure a genuine "how to write a forum post" column would be met with howls of derision and snores of boredom. Those who'd bother to read it probably already post well; the rest would just respond with tl;dr and move on.


Oh, I am cynical. ;-)
