being a lurker lately, my observation of the recent food trend gaining ground, i think it's time to state the obvious. PEOPLE ARE SHEEP :) trends dominate any community/society and on a micro scale, this lil hangout Noah provides us too. thread trends, avatar trends, sig trends, catchword/expression trends, sheeit, one could hardly keep track. a notable feature of a ravewave trend is that once started, most/all the hardcore posters will get slowly suckered into it, and new people will think thats how things are normally here and therefore add fuel to the fire. trends decay over time, which depends on how "workable with" the trend was (i mean, on some topics there just isnt fucking much to say), on whether how soon a new dominant trend pops in, and a bunch of other things. rarely, a few major trends can coexist and even support eachother (e.g. Tipsy avatars/ happy hardcore references).
another interesting point is all along those predominant trends, there is always the argumentative/hate threads, which surface mostly inbetween trends, or when a trend decays.
is it just me, or the obvious conclusion is that people turn to hate when bored?
anyway, without further ado, i figured it'd be interesting to list those :b
in no particular order, off the top of my head (i dont claim to remember everything, or even most, so feel free to add)
* other peoples avatars
* "k thnx"
* food threads
* threads that say thread
* tipsys avatars
* pats avatars
* lips avatars
* threads that say people's names/nicks
* avatars of other ppl on this board
* actors avatars
* dj karl marx lingo (mostly propagated by ben)
* south park avatars
* chicken threads
* "gossip on X & Y" threads (recurring, X & Y variable)
* fake accounts
* political events discussion which is usually turned into gruesome comedy
* threads that talk about trends (such as this one)
i know there was tons more, but i gotta get back to work. feel free to add.
last thing. if you really feel like being off-topic, pretty pweeze start a new thread.

I think its also that when people are bored SOME turn to drugs.. drugs make people angry.
So many of us are friends.. that we bring our private lives on the board.
Inside jokes.. fights.. conflics of interest, events in our lives..

chelsea: you answered your own question
not to be taken wrong, I got nothing against steve, his lingo, OR ben. im simply depicting trends
and Jeff: youre being off topic, cuz the trend of nobody caring results in nobody posting and is therefore of no interest for the purposes of this thread
Kawfin: good points

No, the no one gives a shit is a trend. it's all that elitism. bad for the cerveau.

i dont think elitism can be deemend a trend, since it is a trait of a community that usually surfaces after the initial excitement of the community being something new and different fades. i totally think it sucks and we should do without it, but some people will always have insecurities that make then have cravings for that superior feel, cravings that can be more or less satisfied by being an ass/bitch to someone newer to the community and say in the back of the head "ha! ive been here longer. i know the ropes. im COOL. that person sure ain't. yay." or something along those lines

Wow.. I think thats actually pretty dumb.. Who cares how long someones been here or not.. or how many posts someone has.. I sure dont.. I dont know why posts are counted.. I know it makes some people insecure about posting tho. At least its not like technodium was where it had that stupid bar... it was like " the fuller the bar the cooler you are" or something.
I think its true some people do have an "im better then you attitude" but thats cause they know they have influence over other people. Having influence on people = ego boost.
I think everyone is nice at times and we do have a little respect for each other.
I think alot of people need to realize that were only humans and thats how we should treat each other. iknow I've had to a couple of times.

totally. elitism is nothing but people not being comfortable enough with themselves to be comfortable with being nice to others. often its kinda like they put up walls of hostility before others do the same to them, kinda like "get ya first!" thing.
influence wise, well sure, sometimes, but i think everyone influences everyone to some extent, and even if it looks like person A had REALLY influenced person B, it often turns out that A was more changed by the experience than B, who usually finds someone else to follow, while A gets to sit and ponder what the hell happened, not realizing that B's passive feedback is the cause for all those odd thoughts and shit.
the above paragraph might have been more coherent if i could reread it but i gotta run back to work
more on topic: "post-party-review-first" trend. decayed a while ago, now nobody cares :)

Or the rollcall threads..
Sure I agree everyone influences everyone to some extent. I guess what im trying to say tho in this case is that people who have been around longer (not all tho) or people who have that " im better then you attitude" have more influence on someone new then say someone who isnt.

Yo, i'm the one that originally had the south park avatar. Ask spookay, he got the adress from me. Now understand : people really are sheeps sometimes. But you gotta have some kind of mercy for people that are actually being copied and all.

See like who really cares who was the first..
I could say what were the firsts for alot of things on that list but why does it matter?
