Before I say anything, obviously I’m new here as well. What I say may not hold much importance to the veteran users, but considering the 2KMTC crowd seems to listen to me I thought I should say something early.
This should go without saying, but 2KMTC is a lot different than 2KG. This should be apparent. This forum is a hell of a lot more active and not as focused on the card art niche that 2KMTC evolved into after it was basically deserted. A majority of the first bigger users to leave 2KMTC, myself included, left because the site was being neglected and the majority of the community was quickly devolving into hyper-egotistical, drama-fueled, clout chasing children. And it appears that, just like the “trends” in created cards, the smaller users decided to blindly copy the top users and move here.
I, along with what I assume to be the general population of 2KG, have no problem with new users moving to a new site. We don’t have total control over what another human being chooses to do with their own free will. I get that. But, I feel the influx of “refugees” aren’t taking into account that this forum is vastly different than 2KMTC with vastly different rules and social norms built by the users here now. The “refugees” don’t appear to have the respect for this new site, which believe it or not, was exactly what killed 2KMTC in the first place. The custom card posts are fine, obviously. That is a subsection of content we can provide. But the spam and general 2KMTC toxicity that is being carried over doesn’t paint a good image of yourselves or the community at large.
Instead of just making this a hit piece, I’d like to open the floor to the existing users here that would like to share any tips or help with the new users so that they understand some of the unwritten rules here and can better coexist without any issues going forward.
I’m still new to this site too so I’m just as much of a learner and listener here as well.
