tentang Nuffnangers' Habits
well im sorry for generalizing but having explored and spent time on the nuffnang Innit page i start to see these few but rather annoying bad habit of nuffnangers. i'm not making any personal attacks.. just rather a general feel of how the people are based on observations on the first 3 days as a nuffnanger.
again, if anyone is offended i apologize, and please let me know and i'll try to rephrase my sentences.
No.1 - the squished avatar image.
okay the blame shouldnt be put entirely on members.. i think nuffnang.com should change how uploaded image is displayed.. like if the image doesn't fit the display area, cropped it instead of stretc/squishing it. still, the members (nuffnangers) should have a sense of uneasiness when they see their face is displayed squashed like that. it kinda makes the person in the picture look distorted, hideous, and sometimes retarded dont u think? and having multiple images like that kinda make the Innit page look crappy.
No.2 - chatbox abuse.
we all know that some things although we can do it, doesnt mean we should. in the chatbox, it is common that people put links to their article there and i do think it is acceptable. but many have crossed the line of promoting their blog to spamming the chatbox. but since it is kinda common practice, other people just dont give a damn.
No.3 - shit titles.
misleading, outrageous, rude and down right shallow titles to be exact. this is actually a kind of abuse too. people now like to be a jackass and thinking it is fun. a lot of the time i would find it funny too.. but maybe we should know where we can and cant be those things.. especially if it affects someone else. example: titles like "Caught Having Intercourse In Garden - pics!!!" will definitely attract readers. but at the same time it will make nuffnang.com look bad. other people might think.. oh nuffnang Innit is filled with perverts and wankers like that.. and nuffnang probably doesn't care.. lets join them!
No.4 - dang!
the reason why that button is put there is as a form of user-based content control. titles like i mentioned before should be dang!ed obviously. but we arent too fond of punishing random strangers right? especially when we know those titles are just a pathetic effort to attract readers to their blog. but then some people misuse the button just to piss people off by 'dang!' a random unfortunate blogger. that blogger will probably visit this trickster's blog to find out who he is resulting +1 reader for the blogger (works best with bloggers with a lot of fans). sad thing is.. most of the time it works!
now suddenly i have this creepy feeling that people will think im that bitter old man living alone in his house down the street. OMG i need to have more fun in life >_____<. so i'll stop at 4.
