Cool? Really? What was the point if that?

Stop posting to hear yourself talk!

Well, I tried my best with this guy. You know, polite advice like think what you're saying, hang back a bit, post only when it's relevant, stop posting... please stop...

I give up.

Honestly RMCAC, I mean no disrespect to anyone, at all. I was trying to get down to if CoasterGoddess is also a member of a different forum asking similar questions with the same dialect, where I could simply answer them all on that forum so I don't take up room here. But after the response I was given, It kind of infuriated me. No one ever told me from the beginning, "YOU HAVE TO BE AN ELITIST TO COMMENT." That's the vibe this website gives off. The whole purpose of forums is to weigh in, and give opinions. Didn't know talking to other enthusiasts who probably and almost love the amusement industry just as much as I do, would be this way. Sure, I may just be learning the way around this forum, but making it unpleasant and being assholes about it sure doesn't make it any friendlier. Perhaps if you Private Messaged me and said, "Hey man, I appreciate you trying to be social, but this isn't the appropriate place." Would have been great, but mocking, retaliating, and singling me out doesn't make things better.

I'm sure it does to you.

No. The whole purpose of the forums is to add something to the conversation. Your signal-to-noise ratio is high enough that many of the longtime members here are pointing it out to you in a variety of ways.

The only thing we love more than the amusement industry is a forum devoid of meaningless, me-too or talking-just-to-hear-myself posts.

You've had the site's most active and prominent members point it out to you, you've had moderators point it out to you, you've had the site owner point it out to you and still apparently aren't seeing the need to temper your posts.

No one wants noise. If you have something to add to the conversation, then great. Welcome!

If you're just talking out of your ass, then we'd rather you don't. But still, welcome!

If you keep talking out your ass, you're going to hear it. I think that's where you are right now.

And how does this add to conversation?

"Did you stay at all three or just look at the brochure?"

A great example of this is Vekoma with their boomerangs. I can say, "Oh, I hate Hersheypark's boomerang coaster, so therefore, all Vekoma boomerangs are crap, and that's that".

But this is why we so rarely do versus threads.

I stand by this statement. Vekoma is the exception to the rule here.

This was the only coaster I have ever ridden that made me a bit sick and was just lousy overall! :)

Perhaps, Rickrollercoaster, you missed the most pertinent part of the post. Italics added.

Right.

In no way should Coasterbuzz be viewed as an elitist place to post. Like Gonch says, everyone should be welcome here. But like I stated before, we stand out as a group that is fairly noise free, and opinions and stories from posters are most valued when there's substantial content.

I can name of a couple of guys, if I may, that are relatively new (to making posts here, at least) and are getting along well. Tommy and Bakeman are great examples of posters who started on the right foot, with thoughtful comments, fathomable opinions, and appropriate humor. By now they've shown that they are serious about their involvement here. I wish I could convey to you how important that is if you want to be taken seriously.

If you're offended by one liners that seem directed toward you, consider that something, somewhere along the line happened that caused comments like those to surface. No, it's not nice and doesn't contribute, but we've all been the butt of a joke here or there. And we all don't necessarily agree with each other, either. But respect breeds respect. You claim to not be disrespectful, but that's not reading.

In another thread you shared your knowledge of Disney value resorts and I walked away from that one with a few things I never knew before, (I've never stayed there), and a relieved sense that you might be turning in a positive direction. Then I flipped over here and saw the same old familiar nonsense.

One more thing, then I really will give up and back out of here. You also mentioned in that thread that you have illness and disorders. If for some reason you're affected by these, and are coming from a place that I'm not familiar with, then I apologize if I've been insensitive.

The very fact that yet another thread has turned to a discussion with you and about you just isn't right. And I feel bad about that for everyone.

I was out of town for a week, so missed all the fun, but I have to say that HK's Space Mountain was a great surprise. (I've also been on MK's and DL's a super long time ago). It was quite fast and thrilling without being too intense. I can't wait to get my kids on it (or it's clones).

We can argue opinions until the cows come home, but attacking people gets old *very* quickly...

A well-stated opinion gets more credibility than an equally-valid opinion that is poorly stated.

P.S. I've only been on the two stateside SMs, and DL's original was closed for the refurb on my first visit. My opinion echoes AV Matt's - inline seating is what's for dinner (same goes for bobsleds).

Interesting. I don't find the inline seating to be a feature one way or the other---especially now that it's three per rocket in individual seats. Back in the day (tm), when each rocket sat two-by-two, there was a certain joie de vivre in sitting there with your Special Someone.

Instead, in terms of ride experience, my rating is the same as Sirloin's: Paris >>> DL > MK.

Ive only ridden the two stateside rides, and Ive only ridden the DL one in "Ghost Galaxy" mode but my opinion is that WDW is the better coaster (it provides a more "out of control" feeling, and especially on Omega has that fantastic pop of air on the totally unexpected drop in the middle of the ride) but DL is the better attraction. DL feels much more like you are traveling through space, and has a more cohesive story (again this is in Ghost Galaxy mode) where that pesky demon is constantly trying to ensnare you in his grasp.

I rode the Cali and florida versions. I really liked the cali version much better. I rode them both only a year or two ago. What I liked most about the cali version was that to me it felt like more of a visual experience. Upon reaching the top of the lift, I truly felt like I was flying in outer space. Florida version to me felt more like a roller coaster in the dark and nothing more lol.

SM:DLS = best ever! Oh wait they aren't even building one there are they? Dang.

Anyway, Wow! These types of threads tend to pop up every year or so. And you'd think most of the old posters would be less patient with this. I'm impressed with everyone's restraint and willingness to mentor Rickrollercoaster. Unless of course everyone is doing so in order to slow down and enjoy the traffic accident as they pass so to speak. ;)
