i think you are thinking of phubans' thread? that one was more about how he thinks this forum's users in general are bad, it wasn't distinguishing between new and old users. i don't think new users are any worse in terms of respect and post quality than old users
There will always be the ones who will say the same thing as the OP. This is a cycle, a never ending cycle that will be like the one before.

Years from now, someone will say the exact same thing.

Years from now, Derek Yu will have ascended to his true form, bringing a terrible enlightenment upon the indie world. All that is old shall be as new, all that is new shall be as old, and developers far and wide will cry out in a combination of ecstasy and horror. In the not so distant future, the Spelunkening awaits us all.

I don't think age of your account and post quality are proportional.  See: icycalm.

Also people who make new accounts but have been here for a while, like im9today -> dota_mtdew, jwk5 -> JWK5, etc.

Going to be way more confrontational than necessary, and this is a bit non-serious, but I can't ignore such a shit-stirring thread.

I don't miss the old crowd.  Every time they come back to TIGS they say something along the lines of "Things suck. Things used to be better. I miss the way things used to be." and generally act like dicks to those people who didn't know that indie games existed pre 20XX.  If they think that is the best way to contribute to the community, then I'm glad they stay away.

Now, those members of the old guard that still contribute regularly and meaningfully to the community, yay on them.  But those people who haven't posted in 3 years acting like this website is somehow theirs and not everyone's, fuck them.

ya i agree with this post. besides, it's not like the old guard didn't have terrible dramatic threads too. take a look at this thread:

http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=224.10

participants include alec holowka, phil fish, terry, konjak, haowan, anthony flack, guert, etc. -- most of whom claim they no longer post on tigsource because of the low standards it has fallen to

and i know that thread isn't *that* terrible, but i imagine if many of those people came to tigsource and saw a thread with that subject/title that devolved into discussing whether it's okay for japan to be racist they'd pretty much condemn the thread and everyone in it

Lol, well i wasn't moaning per-se, just expressing regret at a time passed by..  i used to love spending 10 hours a night on #tigirc with those who knew me, but real life got in the way and i can't live life the way i used to..

but you rage on buddy, seems you have beefs :D

i should add:  I don't know nearly as many of the "new crowd" as i'm sure i'd like, and maybe i'll work on changing that, i really do miss the feel of a nice fitting community ;-)  but i will say seeing the likes of Paul Eres, Blademasterbobo, Dragonmaw and Cthulhu32 posting makes me feel all fuzzy inside :3
