    Teh OT Elitist?

      Apparently some visitors see teh OT as a "elitist" group, I can only imagine they have this image of teh OT

       

      But I dare say it "Haters going to Hate"!

          That is not what I would imagine this place, and can you prove my elitist statement wrong?

              unless they changed the definition of elitist to mean mostly bat s**t crazy then no

               

              I think the issue with OT is you lot have so many " in jokes " that new people to this forum don't get it and think its a very closed group.

               

              oh also the majority of you are bat s**t crazy

                  This ^^^ is why I enjoy teh OT. I don't get all of the in-jokes, but that don't matter. I am all for having a giggle and poking fun. I guess I'm still considered a visitor here - I get that   but - I enjoy the company in here,,, and the crazineSs.

                          yup, the OT is not about who fits in or doesnt its about who you are as a contributor. Hating will not get anyone <cough, cough, ToXIcNoObs> far.

                              This is the forum as a whole which includes the OT.  If what you have to say adds to the conversation then it doesn't matter what your post count is.  If it doesn't your post count won't likely save you.  The problem with a number of new folks is that they don't have the game experience that some of us old timers have and as such when you try to explain to them that the problem that has them raging is easily circumvented they don't want to hear it.  Now suddenly the guy that was actually giving them great advice is the "bad guy".  It going to happen because people that are already upset about something don't always think straight.

                               

                              My view of the OT is primarily who can out stupid the other with some off the wall comment.  Personally, I love stupid.  Something my wife doesn't understand but I can roll with stupid all day.  It's all just good natured fun.  Learning the "inside" jokes comes with time but my advice to a new person is just have fun with it.  Nobody is taking what is said in the OT seriously.  It's supposed to be a crazy twisted joke fest.

                               

                              Now where did I put my cat?  I saw EviL lurking around here earlier and I'm a bit concerned.  Maybe the Wind has him or perhaps the GraS but I sure hope that SaNd didn't pick him up.  It's hard to get SaNd out of all that fur.

                                Thanks Dutch and Izjar. I feel honored to be known as a regular. I have been around in the forums since the start of BO2 - but I realize that the OT has a strong ancestry.  I feel like a party.......

                                Batshit crazy? I don't think so. That only applies when we are off our meds.

                                 

                                The amount of inside jokes, and perhaps outside jokes, is quite high. In order to understand most, if not all, you will have to do a little research. Of course, it helps to have been there years ago when they were happening.

                                 

                                Now since I don't recognize most of you, I'll assume you are new. SO DON'T SCREW THIS OT UP!

                                    The OT has always been sort of separate from the rest of the even crazier portions of the forums. I very rarely venture out of the OT because I like it here and I've been here for a long time. The sense that we are an "elitist" group of individuals with our own little club is not a new accusation. The inside jokes and little groups within the OT certainly make it seem that way, but we are all generally good folk who are welcoming to new comers if they are willing to take their time to get involved. That fact that I'm trying to set up a history thread to help people get acquainted with the inside jokes is part of a continued effort to change the perception of the OT being only for the elite few who are established there.

                                        This line is what the OT is! Involvement. Well Said

                                        If the Ghosts forums were a hospital, I'm sure people would see the OT as the "Insanity Ward."


                                        All jokes aside, I agree with Jedi. We are a tight group of people, who have endless amounts of inside jokes. The members of the OT always come and go. Some stick around and some don't. Just as long as you're willing to play a long and not a nuisance, then we'll get along just fine. As you can tell, the past members have already laid a "mark" on the OT so to speak. If you play your cards right, so can you!

                                         

                                        Oh, and one final note. Do yourself a favor and stay off Snakedoctor's lawn. That man gets grumpy fast.

                                         

                                        P.S.: Read these threads, as they will teach of the ways of the OT!

                                        P.P.S.: If you (I mean you OT goers) really want to get in our (or really my) good graces (you'll really earn some respect-o points from me), you're gonna have to do some homework.

                                         

                                        Refer to this thread:

                                        Castle V6.0.0

                                         

                                        Your mission now is to do a little research on some of these vets. Those on the list were active OT vets from the past. Search their name using the mythical Search Function. From here, you'll be able to gain a little knowledge of everyone. You'll get to see the old threads we contributed to. This way, you can understand the OT Culture™ (I call dibs to this phrase BTW).

                                         

                                        Well...what are you waiting for? DO IT!!!

                                          This place makes no sense.  Exactly why I love it.

                                           

                                          I have also had my fellow OT'ers come to bat for me on the other forums which is groovy.

                                           

                                          I have been around since Early Bops1 and checked the OT out some but I regret taking as long as I did to make this home.  Now I rarely even venture off to the other less relevant forums on this site.
