LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 3/15/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So 2009 has been a year filled with drama in the Dtoid community, drama perpetuated by the idea of the "old" dtoid community vs. the "new" dtoid community. Today was apparently another chapter in the ongoing story of this struggle that just doesn't want to go away. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty sick of all the drama at this point. I'm sick of this whole idea of the "new" community vs. the "old" community, and how the new community is ruining what used to be a great site. I'm sick of everyone acting like children.

Everyone needs to get it through their heads that things do change. Nothing in life is constant, especially not something as chaotic as the internet. It is very true that change has come to Destructoid, but for the most part the only change I have seen is good change. Instead of embracing this change, we seem to be trying to rip Dtoid apart from the inside out because we can't deal with this change. Well it's time that we all get over ourselves and learn that Dtoid isn't about anyone of us as individuals, but about all of us as a community made up of extraordinary people. We need to get past this "new" vs. "old" bullshit and come together to make Dtoid the best it's ever been. If you can't do that, if you can't get past that, then you don't really belong here.

Ok ... I've said my peace ... now on with the Cblog Recaps ...

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
