I am going to be wasting my time typing this all out, but it's important, and I need to settle everything once and for all.
I have come to the conclusion that the Kirby fanbase is not going to get any better, and is one of the worst, if not THE WORST, Nintendo fanbase out there.
That's very sad, because Kirby(along with main series Mario) is one of the few Nintendo franchises that is still GOOD.
I actually tried joining the Kirby Informer discord, but to my disgust, the admin was TORKIRBY, and everyone answered my serious questions with "memes".
I hate "borb". Insulting.
They banned me on the spot, of course, because people are oblivious to the truth about the fandom/base. Whatever. I'll get to that later.
Now, I have a matter to discuss about Another Dimension.
I am no longer a part of it. However, that was not my decision.
Now, Meggolor blocked me on discord, and banned me on the forum.
BUT, it was not the usual "I will not tolerate this behavior. You are banned for two weeks".
Meggolor BACKSTABBED me.
Meggolor stopped replying to me on discord for a few days. I also asked her why the private staff board was removed. When she came back, she replied with this.
"I will look into your situation. It may have been an error from when I was updating something. Also, my family members and I will be going camping for Labor Day weekend and we will not have access to Internet services. In order to reduce the risk of something happening on the forums while I am gone, I will put the forums into maintenance mode, which will prevent users from accessing the forums until I get home on Tuesday, September 5. See you then!"
She then blocked me. I was confused by this, and was also suspicious about the locked forum thing, since barely anyone knows about the forum, but I didn't want to upset her about her privacy concerns, and understood and respected that.
A day or two later, I checked the forum, and it had the message "You have been banned from this forum." on a blank white page.
I check a few days later. Nothing has changed.
I thought Meggolor just needed a small break.
It has now been over nine days since that message was sent. I am still blocked and banned.
Meggolor practically used me as a tool to provide ideas, and then threw me in the trash like I was nothing.
I can no longer trust anybody who is in the Kirby fanbase.
Now, let's discuss Meta Naito.
As we know, MNKS is shutting down around December 31st. It is only so long before it is gone forever.
This is not as important as the Another Dimension situation, but I thought I'd share it anyway.
Fubaka posted this announcement on September 4th.
"I have removed the ability to make any new posts or threads in these forums.
If you are reading this, I suggest you find and save backups of any posts or other material that you want archived, because I'm not sure how much longer these forums will be around.
Our Discord server is now the official WiKirby discord. If you want to keep on with us, follow this link: https://discord.gg/4y9BPyj
It's a good thing to note that I'm banned from WiKirby discord, due to it previously being a discord for the MNKS forum.
Fubaka also banned me from the MN forum. (Please note nobody else is banned from the forum, other than me.) Meggolor might have told Fubaka to ban me, and he did. It could also just be because I was the only one still checking the forum other than him and maybe one other person, and he wanted to make sure nobody posts on the forum. For all I know, he could have made that announcement specifically to keep me away.
I can still check the forum as a guest, which I find kind of odd.
It appears that Meta Naito and Waddle Dee abandoned their own site ages ago, leaving Fubaka to check up on it every once in a while. Personal issues? Hatred of their own past? Other things?
Whatever happened, it's pretty much over. MNKS could shut down anyday, now.
I do not need to talk about The Kirby Club. All of it's problems are pretty much long gone and forgotten.
As for KRR itself? Bimblesnaff does not really seem care about the community. He doesn't moderate the forum due to his issues with it in the past. But what about the rest of the site? Back in 2016, we were eager to provide info to update the Kirby game section of the site, but 'Snaff never added it.
I can only assume this is laziness, considering the way he jokes about things.
Mints also seems to not care about the state of this site.
He came back just to get the forum back up a few months ago, and did NOTHING else(like approve new members, or ban the spam bot), and just left as soon as he came back.
Joshi was here until the "end"(February 12th, 2016, I think), but didn't come back when the site entered a fake revival.
The rest of the staff? A big mess. Need I say more?
In fact, if I remember correctly, Meggolor told me that GrnFzzTgr(or something like that, I forgot his name) told him that the big argument staff board thing on the site is FAKE and just for show, and that the REAL board is something only the staff can see. Meggolor also told me about suicidal Kirby roleplayers on tumblr, among other things, but that's besides the point.
Now that I have gathered all this info together, I must say something important about the state of the fanbase.
They are apparently oblivious to their own awfulness.
No joke. I have never seen a fanbase this stupid, other than the Splatoon community.
Now, I know you're all going to bring up an argument. "The Fire Emblem/Zelda/Metroid/whatever community is much worse than us!".
There's a huge difference between most of the Nintendo franchise fanbases, and the Kirby one(and the even worse Splatoon one, but we'd be here all day if I were to talk about THAT).
You know how Fire Emblem has elitists and whatnot? Well, they're actually AWARE of that. Hell, even the ANIMAL CROSSING fanbase, of all fandoms, knows it has problems.
The Kirby fanbase has been unaware that, for nearly AN ENTIRE DECADE, their fanbase has been a mess.
It has only gotten worse over the past 3 years or so.
Before I got banned from there, I actually saw someone on the Kirby Informer discord say something along the lines of "Drama? In a Kirby chat? smh".
To be unaware of their huge problems, and for them to take ages, or even forever, to notice them even a bit?
That's just sad...
I no longer see hope for this community. It's not like I want them to be like this, but there doesn't seem to be any long term solution to this big problem...
The rest of you who are still on KRR? Do what you want. I highly recommend you stay here, as it is mostly quiet and lacking of activity, allowing us to be away from the crazy people on other sites. However, I will not force you to stay here. I had to learn that the hard way... then again, is there anytime I DID learn anything the easy way?
This is where the discussion about Kirby mostly ends. This is where I vent about my personal problems and other crud.
Now, over the past few days, I have been having realistic, and very scary, dreams. I would go into detail, but I know how you all had to deal with that spam bot that has been posting inappropriate things, so I'll let you off the hook.
My first day of therapy is tomorrow. After ages of denying I need help, I'm finally getting it. If this doesn't work and solve my problems, then I don't know what to do anymore...
Before you ask, yes, I DO hate my own generation of idiots with smartphones. I am lucky to be one of the few people who is my age and knows how corrupted the past five years of this decade is.
Now, time to talk about something else.
Miiverse, Nintendo's attempt at a social media network, is ending on November 8th. I will be very sad, as it actually allowed me to socialize with people, roleplay, practice drawing, and overall have fun.
(Also, speaking of social media, YouTube is apparently considered a "social media" now, which I am disgusted by.)
I could say more things, but I'm getting exhausted, and I have school in an hour. I have two big tests today. I'm questioning if I'll even survive that without collapsing.
I seem to have lost hope for this world long ago. If I could go back in time 12 or 13 years, but still be the age I am now, that would be amazing.
.... but alast, time travel is only a thing I can daydream about...
Like I said before, the Kirby fanbase can't be revived properly. It has gone beyond "drama". At this point it's intimidating to even look at.
I hope you all have a great day. Let's all hope for the best...
... I seriously need some help.
(I also spent and hour and a half typing this all out, but I suppose it was worth it.
