I'm thinking of venturing outside of Deviants... Any survival tips?

So I'm thinking on going on holiday to some of the other forums, it's scary out there and I'm not sure how I should behave in those foreign lands, which customs to observe, should I wear some sort of hat?

Only go to Complaints when you feel angsty and hate the world. I venture out there from time to time and I always end up feeling nasty afterwards. It's vile.

Philosophy & Religion and Politics are a waste of time and energy... unless you like smashing your head against your wall repeatedly... if you do like doing that it's the place for you. Wear protection... condoms, bulletproof vest... an armadillo helmet. ya know.

By the way, Help With Life can get Emo, and the Entertainment section, movies, games, etc. is nerd territory. The Welcome Center can get decent Q&A discussions when meeting new members though. Suggestions however, can also get nasty.

I love how people act like Complaints will come to your house and steal your mailbox. Everyone takes this forum stuff so seriously.

My only advice is that it is not worth arguing with anyone in Politics.

My only advice to you is to avoid the Politics forum if you can help it. Insanity, hatred, and shit-storms run rampant there.

And yet that's nothing compared to the Philosophy & Religion forum. No matter what you say, someone WILL find a Bible quote to contradict it, and they will present it in such a way that will make everyone (yourself included) think you are so evil that you make Hitler seem like Gandhi by comparison.

Just avoid Politics and Religion forums as it is pretty much a bunch of zombies in which if someone is not a zombie, they are eaten alive. Complaints isn't as bad as people like to think it is: don't be stupid and don't complain about something stupid without taking it seriously. Games just feels...like crap these days.

Apparently venturing to complaints gets your artwork or pics promoted and some randoms claim you as their toy. Knowing you, nothing you can't handle.:shrug:

Complaints requires snarky hostility to survive, Politics and Phil/Rel both require a gigantic tolerance for terminal overdoses of utter stupidity, and Praise is too depressing to visit. :B

Complaints is like a rough and rowdy bar. That's the best analogy I've come up with so far for it.

This is why I like Deviants. It's more like your local pub. People look at you funny when you first arrive, but it's not really that hard to be accepted if you're not a knob.

I prefer complaints because it's far more interesting on a day to day basis. It's not always the same tame conversations.
