To all members,

As someone who has been on this forum for several years, I feel the need to say something.

What happened?

It baffles me that in an ever expanding world of 7 billion people, you feel no need to connect and work with those you share commonalities. Although this forum is young and has had a countless amount of members who were clowns and jackasses, it is in no way an excuse for the current general attitude. I can in no way pin point the exact reason you joined this forum, but I am sure that it in some way revolves around the connected world of the internet and fashion. Even if you have no interest in pursuing a career in fashion, we still all share this common interest.

Although this forum is nowhere near as active and popular as it once was, I know that it could be better. Instead of criticizing, I suggest networking, communicating, and creating original products/ideas/experiences with other members. Why criticize and ignore people you may have something in common with? We come from all different places, cultures, and backgrounds, and yet we still have something in common. The large and exponentially growing world is getting a tougher place to live in each day. Work together with people you know you can work with.

Granted a portion of you will just say "tldr, "you're gay" or leave an unrelated .gif in the comments, which is fine, keep doing you. I could give a flying fuck. In fact, a large reason of why I enjoy the forum is because of the ridiculous shit you guys say to each other. However at the end of the day you know I'm right. In the 21st century, the internet can be the greatest tool or the greatest waste of time. I've seen members on this forum get theirs and it's great to see. I say this because I hope more members can.

Much love from the Bay. Let's get this money.

A forum filled with little shithead teenagers doesn't last. Those shitheads eventually grow up and new shit heads pop up that are even dumber than the last batch. That's life son.

its a couple things that have led to the decline of the 'old' forum and its community

In order of appearance.

-Permanent banning in 06-09, lost a lot of og members that never bothered to come back)
-Fit Fridays, got a bunch of clowns joining to get their wdywt up in the main page
-Odd future, not just lame odd future fans, but all young 'rappers' trying to join the come up
-Pissed old forum members who lost their OG accounts and decided trolling was more fun
-Shoutbox, Took the rest of the old members away from the forum and they only stay in the sb
-forum redesign.. They changed it away from vbulletin (out of my hands) and we lost most functionality of the forum. 

some cliffnotes for you guys.

i ban multiple people a day who keep spamming the supreme thread. dont think i do nothing, on this site you have the ability to flag a post and all flagged posts will be reviewed by mods, about 70% of all flagged posts on the WHOLE forum come from the supreme thread because there is so much shit in that thread, most of the times its hard to keep up with it especially since im located in a different timezone

OP has a good point. Delivered it better than most...

but every 3months or so, somebody (most often OGs) complaining about the state of HB...

not much we can do imo.

So far in this thread the criticism of the forum has stemmed from the belief that good members equals a good forum when its obvious that what makes a good forum is quality posts.
I'm sure this forum has loads of interesting and knowledgeable members but if they don't post then what's the fucking point?
For example OP has been a member for 5 years and has only posted 32 times. Judging by the first post, he can put in the work to make a well thought out and detailed statement so why doesn't he post more?
Of course it will always be easier for some posters to troll people and argue about stupid shite rather than making quality posts but if they get ignored and shown by other members how to post well then they might join in.

most of the OG's on this site are lames though

lol the other night in SB one of them was trying to saying how hes a someone on the forum and im a no one and i was like dam man? niggas really take this shit that serious? like you actually have a heirachy for who has the most social status on a forum...

cmon now, dont be ridiculous
I don't agree that most of the OG's are lames but I guess I am one so im biased. I appreciate what OG members are left because typically they make more mature contributions and bring some nostalgia to the table. Of course, naturally im going to have more in common with the older heads who came here for the sneaker culture. All the new kids on here today will grow into their 20s mature and watch the reasons they first came to HB fade away and evolve into something new, and then you'll have 2012 members hating on 2016 members, on a forum with so many young kids bound to mature and new young kids constantly joining I figure it will go in a cycle. I might be just rambling though, others have made better points than me in the thread.

I think the older members should post more in the wdywt thread. The wdywt always been the base of off topic. I really get the feeling most new members arent progressing, maybe some members just want to share their fits but I remember I really used the criticism to get better fits.

This will never work espically when you have a Mod that will delete everything you say or block you if you hurt his feelings

And this is the shit i was tryna promote cause as much as yall niggas will deny it but i would have made HB more popular.

Theres a fucking 1 post a day rule now and if you dare to make a thread thats different it will just get deleted. 

Again though yall will deny this but me and John and London could make HB 10 x better cause we would make decent threads but its pointless when you can only make 1 thread a day.

As i said before HB will fall off because its just plain boring

Who cares about a join date. That is so irrelevant. You could have been on this forum since day one and been the hugest cunt. New members can be great. They keep the forum moving and growing. Hypebeast will forever be young. I think it should be. However, stop acting like some young narcissistic and arrogant kids. In the world we live in, you got to be young and hungry.

I think you guys missed the point. It's all about what you have to bring to the table. Even if you think you have nothing, I'm here to tell you we at least all share something in common. If we didn't, we wouldn't be on this website.

Doesn't it just seem like a waste of time to be on here if you get nothing out of it? If you like to waste time, you're wasting an important resource.

This is just my two cents. You can take it or leave it. It's all good.
