    I want to discuss the Cubing Community and my experience

    I'm kind of confused. You said that it's not okay to harass or bully others, yet it's okay to joke about it online? What exactly is the inherent difference then? If people are going on channels and commenting "hey you suck, feliks is better" as a "joke", does that make it acceptable or not...

    I want to discuss the Cubing Community and my experience

    That's the thing. You say it's a joke. You call it sarcasm. You call it trolling. Does that make it okay? Does it make it a good thing? I can "joke" about rape and suicide, and that does not make it acceptable. You can't have this underlying assumption that just because someone is "joking" they...

    I want to discuss the Cubing Community and my experience

    I suppose that's fair. It's just stuff like this kind of bothers me sometimes, especially when I see the same people go back on their words because someone they deemed as more "legitimate" said something.

    I want to discuss the Cubing Community and my experience

    You're right; we can't really do anything but ignore them. What I'm sorta wondering though, is why people seem to take it so negatively when I, a rather insignificant member to the cubing community, brought this up, yet when people such as Chris bring it up, it's suddenly like this revolutionary...

    I want to discuss the Cubing Community and my experience

    I apologize if this is a bit long. So a goodwhile back, I started a thread that was eventually closed down. It was titled "Why are some of Feliks Zemdeg's fans so rude?" Basically, I talked about how I felt many Feliks Zemdegs fans often berrate other speedcubers for being "not as good" as he...

    Qiyi Wuque Unboxing and random babbling over how good it is!

    I cant be the only one that absolutely loves your sense of humor I dunno, it's the sort of passive and very casual side remarks that gets to me also memes

    Cubing Challenge Video!

    I laughed way more than I should have at the underwater one. I love your jokes; they're so bad they actually end up being hilarious. You kinda remind me of a more casual ColorfulPockets actually... anyway nice vid. That was some smooth flirting at the end too.

    Unboxing! Qiyi Square 1, X Man Galaxy Megaminx, Mini Weilong

    That was legit really good. It's rare to see cubers that actually deviate from the formula that everyone follows, whether it'd be unboxings or reviews, and have a personality. Also, your sense of humor is perfect for me; just your little side remarks and comments were hilarious. Probably one of...

    Moyu should stop releasing so many cubes..?

    So from what I understand, what you guys are saying is that people are annoyed because Moyu hasn't really released any 3x3s with "revolutionary new design"? I mean that seems a bit silly to me; at this point, 3x3 technology is so advanced that stuff like corner cutting/turn speed is almost...

    Moyu should stop releasing so many cubes..?

    yeah okay, I see what you mean but that still doesn't explain why people are so angry. I mean I'm just kind of confused as to why everyone thinks Moyu releasing a bunch of cubes is such a big deal...it's overhyped, sure. But even if it does get overhyped, and it turns out it isn't as they claim...

    Moyu should stop releasing so many cubes..?

    So I heard about a bunch of controversy regarding this topic and was just kind of confused on how it all started/what exactly it's about. Yeah I'm a bit late to the topic, but it still seems like it's somewhat relevant even right now, so I figured I'd dig a little deeper. I mean at the end of...

    Time..grapher?

    Not really sure if this belongs here, but I'll give it a try: I recently finished an average of 1000 on 3x3 over the course of a few weeks, and I'm kinda curious how I stand in terms of solves. Basically, I want to find a program that lets me graph my times in a scatter plot (or maybe bar graph...

    I guess people just don't like anything negative related to Feliks. Not sure what to think of this community anymore tbh.

    Why are some of Feliks Zemdegs' fans rude?

    Kinda proving my point there with the first sentence, aren't you? Yes, because it's one of the only available sources where all fans of Feliks reside. The forums/reddit would only contribute to a small portion, typically the more mature ones. I'm not arguing anything, you're the one that's...

    Why are some of Feliks Zemdegs' fans rude?

    you really have no right to say whether a "joke" hurts someone or not, unless you are that person. It's like calling someone who's saying they're depressed not depressed; you don't do that because you have absolutely no control over what they feel, nor do you actually know. Point is...
