It's way too addicting. It's way too "OMG CAN SUM1 B MI GIRLFREND". And I have over 2000 posts in it. My excuse is that I go on there to talk with the smarter people some places. Since I usually only do)
http://www.gaiaonline.com


Me and my damn addictive personality!

EDIT: It may look very kiddy but there are people over 20 on it. And there are smart people too. Again, damn my addictiveness..

You have a good point. It is a website crammed full of net speaking teenagers. Then there are a few smart ones(where I go). Even though it is a very successful site w/ over 1000000 users, and it just got games. I still can't stand it sometimes.


There are forums called the-

Chatterbox- the main hangout for people making "boys in cages girls pick" crap and spammy stuff like that

Sub-Forum- Trash can- for overly abusive/stupid threads

General Discussion- A fairly smarter forum with less spam. WAY too much flaming in here

Sub-Forums- Avatar Talk- There is a money(gold) and store system so you can buy clothes(of many variaties). Talk about it here. WAY to many "OMG YOUR CLOTHES MATCH SO YOUR UGLY AS SIN!!" here

Word Games and others- like it says
Life Issues- Here you can discuss and maybe resolve life problems big or small


Extended Discussion- The most intelligent forum on Gaia. Actually a very interesting place
Subforums- Politics, Science and Technology, Morality/Religion, Sociology and Psychology


Questions and Suggestions- Exactly what it says


Then there are many other forums. Basically you can introduce yourself,roleplay, discuss anything in many forums and subforums(Yes even macs!), spam, chat, be a whore etcetc....

Once you get past the annoying crap it's not so so bad. It has games(that earn you gold) too.

oooooo, those of us in our thirties are scrunching up our faces trying to wrap our brains around why that would be fun.... as we post in a messageboard on a site devoted to a computer company. Hypocrites we.

So, basically it's a festering hole for:
  • Adolescents who still think the Internet is L33T!
  • RPG/gamer kiddies who have no grasp on reality.
  • Anime kiddies who have no grasp on reality.
  • Vapid, self-indulgent blogwhores.
  • Spamwhores.
  • This guy:


Am I leaving anyone out?

The quality of this board depends on the quality of the posts. The only way to guarantee thoughtful, informative discussion is to write thoughtful, informative posts. AppleNova is not a real-time chat forum. You have time to compose messages and edit them before and after posting.

Argh, dammit...

I generally like anime, and one of my favorite TV series that I've been collecting on DVD is an anime involving mountain racers (not Street Racer, but Initial D).

But, shit, crap like this gives anime an even worse reputation than it's already got. Cripes.

Aku - that was a crack up.

What's the bet that kid grows up bemoaning his lack of childhood and later goes on to build a fantasy ranch where ... never mind.

There are those of us in our teens who are trying to wrap our brains around why that's even the slightest bit entertaining.

I guess it's beyond me and over my head.

Looks like a good place to solicit 12 year olds.
