Annuals, Perennials, Weeds and Evergreens

Post by cinnamonstyx » Sat Jun 16, 2012 9:08 pm

As with everything in life, Chao Island can be described with plant based analogies.

We have four types of members. Actually, all forums have four types of members, and in fact all online games have four types of members.

For starters, you got your perennials. They come by during allotted stretches of time and disappear for just as much time. Lacey the Chao, The Rock Crew, and BUSHNAK are some examples of perennials.

Then you got your annuals. Very influential members that sign up, stay a decent while, and then die. Kagenotenshi, More Cowbell, and Lt Waffles fit in right here.

You got your weeds. Trolls or just generally obnoxious members, who are hard to get rid of. You can use weed killer to get them out (banning), and tear up the grass (IP ban), but if they're persistent enough (i.e., rubs), they'll come back. No examples needed.

Then you got your evergreens. These ******* don't die and stay active almost all year. Might disappear for a time, if bought from the tree lot, but almost always come back. Essentially super perennials. A lot of us are this.

What'd'ya guys think about my analogy, and where do you fall in place?

Umm. Really wouldn't use ******* to describe the larger percent of Chao Island, but that's my opinion :/.

Huh, I really like this. It's very accurate. I say that I'm an evergreen.

Yeah it is pretty accurate. I'm an evergreen. Only reason I haven't been on much lately is because my computer broke.

SuperCyber, if you're honestly offended by that, or if anyone is for that matter, go home and never come back, because the Internet only gets worse.

Like seriously, that's what you take out this topic? My use of stars?
Come ooooooon.

Thanks Mana! I wrote it on my iPod with minimal brightness and six percent battery life, so I'm glad someone liked it.

First of all, I never said I was offended. I just said I wouldn't call people that.

Secondly, no, that's not all I took from the topic. In case you didn't notice, I did post here contributing to the topic.

Actually, it is kind of accurate, I suppose.
Especially since even in real life I usually put up with weeds and even like some of them (dandelions, for instance). Hmm.
Then again, I don't really know much about flowers at all so I don't know when anything is supposed to die or if it's supposed to die at all.

Anyway, evergreen, apparently.

I don't know SuperCyber, the evergreen section actually made me chuckle.

I've only been a member a couple months here, but I haven't stopped posting on the other forum I've been part of a couple years. I'm pretty confident you'll continue to see me post every day for a long time. So as applies to here specifically consider me an evergreen sprout.

I think I am a young evergreen.

Also, I would think the annual and perennial members should be switched. Plants that are annuals only live for one growing season while perennial plants come back year-after-year.
Just so you know, I am blind.

A perennial, if your "death" is taken into consideration.

Yes, I'd be perennial but I figure that would only be the case as long as I vanish for a long time again. And since everyone here so so fun and stuff I don't plan on vanishing again!

(Funny thing about calling it a death- on the very first forum I joined, a lot of people were jerks to me. So I'd only log in if there was something I felt like talking about. It got to the point where a guy referred to me as the 'forum ghost' because I tended to haunt it. xD That's why I refer to myself returning to forums as 'coming back from the dead'.)
