A Slums Ripoff?

Post by Snowth Poogle on Sun Jun 26, 2016 8:00 pm

So I was Googling to see if there was any new info regarding Season 20, and I happened to stumbling upon something odd:

http://arthurpbskids.forumotion.com/

I know a number of former Slumsters have long left the Slums, and it looks like this is where they ended up: I feel like this forum is essentially saying, "We don't like what's become of the Slums, so we're going to make out own." Look at the forum index: the boards are essentially the same (and in the same order) as the Slums, not to mention the theme and layout is also very similar, and the fact that it's also hosted on Forumotion speaks volume.

Ah, yes.  

I stumbled upon this a few months ago, and more or less just facepalmed.  While it's pretty much dead in the water, I think we still reserve right to be at least marginally offended by the fact that Pop Cult more or less created a forum in our image with himself as the administrator, and then bastardized that image by making it the very type of restrictive, uptight, preachy, mealy-mouthed place the Slums was created not to be.

Seriously, everything from the layout to the host to the relatively unique idea of assigning users special ranks based not on a traditional Admin/Mod scheme but personality quirks...it all comes together to ring of plagiarism.  I also notice that with few exceptions, the only real contributors there are people who were either flat-out banned from the Slums for discriminatory conduct or overreacting, or are long-documented homophobes lacking any semblance of a sense of humor.  In other words, the very type of people that this community (or any forward thinking society, for that matter) can do without.

Speaking of which, here's a wonderful little snippet I just stumbled upon:




Right.  It's perfectly okay to speculate endlessly about straight pairings, but the split second the suggestion of a same-sex pairing arises, it's "just not right," "weird" and grounds for leaving a community over because "they're just kids on a show."  And the suggested straight pairings aren't?  Don't get me wrong, I don't take the concept of shipping at all seriously because it's generally just speculative, but this sort of sentiment reveals the intolerant, discriminatory mindset that an unfortunate cross-section of the community seems to have.  Also, notice Pop Cult repeating the same pseudo-tolerant drivel that got him banned here in a poor effort to justify the entire thing.  Essentially, "We love and tolerate you, but who you are is fundamentally wrong."

Sigh....
They obviously have issues of the bad kind.
I mean the demetre kid wont even post the word pooper?
Rugrats use the word poop, alot of kids shows do!!! His ideas on G rated are slightly different to the rest of the world.
I also found this "we dont hate gay pairings but dont support them" thing irritating.
Ultimatecombo basically said people who support the Arthur x Buster paring are weird, well what does that make him?

A grown man who refuses to say poop, but whose idea of a good time involves watching little boys going to the bathroom.

I except this will be an unpopular opinion, but if someone wants to talk about Arthur and cannot do it here I cannot blame them for doing it elsewhere. If it does not kill of our forum then I am perfectly fine with it.

In most cases, it wouldn't be a big deal.  After all, many of us (myself included) have been on multiple forums from time to time.

Here, it's just mildly irksome because it's blatant ripoff when one takes the design, features, etc. as a whole into consideration.  The fact that it was cobbled together by someone who left on less-than-favorable terms doesn't help, either. Rolling Eyes  

Oh well.

Regarding the autism/asperger's factor, I wouldn't be at all concerned or attribute any of the disturbing fascinations in question to it.  Consider how many non-autistic people are legitimately into even more unmentionable things.  Jared Fogle, Ian Watkins, Harry Mills...the list goes on.

Agreed, the forum just comes off as a failed attempt to one-up us due to its pilfering of our design. Well, look at how much activity it has garnered since it was created! We might as well pronounce the Slums dead, right?

As if. Razz

HAHA LOL

Actually, given the fact the people who started it have been butt hurt or upset by either being banned from here or just plain did not like us slumfolk THE NERVE, I feel we are justified in not taking to kindly to the attempt at ripping it off.
If it were done by a group of random fans then cool, but it was done as a retaliation to the slums from someone who was banned.

Aaaaargh!

I signed up to this shitty ripoff before I knew the Slums and signed up here, thinking it was a popular Arthur forum!
What a waste of my time and browser cookies!

Tomorrow I'll sign up for ECC as recompensation for myself.
