    Its Going That Way Though

    i feel that Ep is goin the way of fanboyism, all these members having tribute sites and adding friends, making up stories for the sake of it. it seems like the site is becoming a parody of itself, that said there are some amazing people making some really good contributions

    It Shouldn't Be

    ...Yet people are having a free for all like its a play ground. I swear, sometimes people seem like they add me just because they want an extra person in their circle. It's like we don't have much, if anything in common, they don't have many stories, sometimes not even many...

    Please Don't.

    I have chosen not to add the people who I find seem to be starting drama over who likes who best and who has more friends. There is nothing wrong with having a lot of ep friends. That is the point of this site. To find people to share with. People who understand and who you...

    Please Don't

    no, people. that is why they have facebook and myspace. this is not a popularity contest. i repeat, this is NOT a popularity contest. you are only popular here if you care for and understand those in your circle of friends. other than that, no!

    It shouldn't be a contest. It doesn't matter how many friends you make on here. It doesn't matter how many experiences you've shared. It should be about you and not everyone else. It just feels nice to find people who understand.

    If You Want Your Popularity Contest...

     I suppose it was a matter of time before this topic came up. If you are so trapped in freshman year at high school that you need to be "popular", go to some other online forum. There are plenty of others which can indulge your needs there.  In not so nice...

    No Way.

    We are all here to share our lives and feel like we can be honest. This should be a place about family that we love and truth.

    I don't think EP should be a popularity contest because I would so obviously win.   We want to give those other losers a chance....   :D

    Whenever I see someone with hundreds of friends,

    I don't want to speak to them because I feel like they are using this as a Facebook substitute. I'm a lot more likely to talk to people who don't seem like they are trying to win a popularity contest.

    A Forum of Their Own

    I really dislike when any person or clique acts like a public forum is "theirs", when they use the story boards to hold back and forth discussions with one another, flaunt their inside jokes on the same, that sort of thing. It goes agains why places like this exist...

    Do You Remember...

    ...back in the late 80s and early 90s before popularity concepts invaded the Internet? I remember meeting new people and becoming online friends without worrying about being judged. I remember it was we geeks who ruled the internet with valuable information (okay, and pr0n) and...
