    Default Sick to death of the Reddit community - back to forums I go!

    Hi all! I've been a fan for 16 years, and have always tried to be a part of the IWC. For a long while I used forums, up until a few years ago when I stumbled upon Reddit and their r/SquaredCircle community.

    It took me a while to realise this, but the place stinks. The people who use it are the worst kind of fans, more interested in belittling other fan's views and forwarding the hive-mind agenda than promoting good, organic discussion. It's such a negative place for a real wrestling fan to be, and it was starting to make me dislike wrestling altogether. It's particularly bad at this time of year.

    So, after the last of many unhelpful, snotty, smarky responses to one of my posts (and indeed, a lot of other peoples'), I decided to call it quits. It's been a few weeks now, and I'm happier than ever with wrestling again. Ugh, what a poisonous place.

    Anyway, I still want to be able to discuss wrestling as I'm the only one of my friends that never grew out of it, so I'm going to give the forum thing a go again. Thanks for taking the time to read - hopefully this will be fun

    Welcome.

    Yeah, Wreddit sucks. It's full of 12 year old kids and 30 year old guys who act like 12 year old kids.

    I call to have "pony boy" stricken from the records. It's not a pony. It's a mule.

    Well this place is not what it used to be, but it is a smaller community that values posts with substances over memes, circle jerks and shit posting. So, we will warn and ban people for typical wreddit behavior that you want to get away from. I assume many of our worst posters over the years are now reddit regulars after we banned them from the forums.

    If this is your first time here, our WWE section is ok, we have a great women's section and a fantastic history of wrestling forum. Really good fan fiction forum too if that is your thing.

    If you happen to be into comics, we have a great bunch of comic fans too.

    Downside, is this forum is not as active as it once was, and nowhere near as active as reddit.

    Also we seem like a closed group, but really just into any conversation you want. Circle jerks and elitism is frowned upon here. We just ask you be respectful when you post. Post count and shit means nothing here anymore though.

    Reddit is generally good for content, but awful for comments. And I haven't even gone anywhere near squared circle. Been on reddit for 8+ years, so I feel like I've seen quite a bit.

    Regardless, welcome to PW. Do you read comic books?

    Reddit is amazing for comments in the academic sections. A few guys across a few sub-reddits taught me Calculus.

    Much like Twitter, I've never really understood the mass appeal of reddit. I've used it at times, but it seems like a less organised version of a forum. I probably just don't know how to organise the layout, in truth... but oh well.
