This is getting way out of hand. Ever since the live chat went down everyone has been acting so different. We need to just forget about things that happen in the past. Just try to keep this community nice and friendly and not any guilt like it used to be!
There is something you guys need to understand, the drama that came up on the live chat does not affect you, besides make everyone say 'let's stop disagreeing' or 'let's be nicer'. There is a huge difference between disagreeing and fighting. But even disagreeing sometimes can upset someone so you apologize that your words hurt them, that they weren't meant to, but you don't take it back.
If someone does something you don't like you're able to say 'hey I don't like that,' but don't act bossy, try to be tactful and when the other person reacts and shows that they're upset apologize if they get angry then maybe let a mod step in but if someone does something you don't like say it.
The biggest issue with recent drama is other people getting involved in other peoples disagreements and it degrades into a vicious cycle.
So yes be nice but we can't turn back the clock, and dramas going to happen everywhere so you're going to have to learn how to deal with it eventually anyways.
Also it's you who sets the tone you come in happy, everyone else is happy. So in a way be the change you want to see, that's all.
I agree with all that Jet has said. I'm closing this thread so that it will still be here, but I feel like this discussion does not need to go further. Message me if you need to say anything. Let's stay cheerful and chill, and be hyped for December 19th -- the blog chat's opening then!
It's Applewood. I may be thinking about quitting Blogclan for a while. This is because anonymous people keep acting like I am dumb and that I don't know what I am saying. This is not acceptable to me. I do not really feel noticed around Blogclan and the wiki.
It's kind of hard to explain. Let me think about it first. I know you guys are really nice and help people problems, it's just that I don't feel as welcome and people aren't being as friendly like they used to.
Applewood? Your quitting?!? What's making you feel the need to quit? That's crazy. Sorry if you take that to offense. BlogClan is a very friendly community, so is the wiki. I'm sorry if you have specific reasons to leave.
If you guys would just pay more attention to what I say.(I know what you guys are thinking. And I know that you guys try your hardest to notice everyone, it's just that you guys always used to make me feel welcome. It changed.) No offense intended!!
We can't stop you from leaving, Applewood, but I have to say that we ALL feel at times that we're not noticed, me included. I can personally say that I DO notice you, and I think you're very nice. I'm sorry that we haven't paid as much attention to the things that you say as we perhaps should have. The decision to leave is yours, but I hope you'll take our words to heart and give us a second chance. :(
Yes, Apple, stay! I want you to! (And listen to what Hobbit said especially. She can spin words into gold! Wow!)
I'm sorry that you feel unnoticed aound Blogclan. Like others mentioned above, comments can get lost in the shuffle here. No biggy! It happens to everyone now and then. Anyhow . . . I really think you should stick around. Give us another chance, at least for a couple more weeks. Who knows, you could form some life long friendships here! At the very least, we can share a few more conversations, maybe make you smile like a fool or laugh til your sides hurt.
Apple, no one wants you to leave, and we all feel bad that you feel like that. Just know that this happens to everyone at some point, but it will pass, and we know you can pull through. Have strength, and everyone cares. 😀
Please don't leave!!! A lot of people may feel ignored because comments are lost in the sea of posts or a lot of people just read around and don't comment, like I do sometimes. Please don't let the fact that you feel ignored bother you. I hope you feel more welcome in the future😄

Thank you, Applewood, for giving us a second chance. :) And even if you do decide to leave, I hope it can be a peaceful goodbye, with good memories, rather than a goodbye that leaves us all with tears shed on both sides. You certainly don't deserve that kind of legacy—no one does.
