    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    oh, definitely, I don't think anyone here believes that people were actually clapping at her interactions with disney characters
    but that only makes it worse because it means that she probably got negative attention from the the people around her when she took fucking photoshoots with donald duck and such
    as a socially anxious person I can not imagine continuing to hog characters when there are a bunch of parents around me frowning and very obviously judging, which is probably the case when you stand in line with your 6 yo child to then see a grown up person taking up the majority of that precious 30 minutes a character usually spends outside
    either way, she strikes me as a huge attention whore

    Remember when she was told off by some people because she was very clingy with the characters at Disney (instead of letting actual children meet them)? She responded with how much better she is at interacting with characters, and that people actually appreciate it to the point that they started clapping after one of these interactions...
    Yep, definitely looks like a shy, self-concious person to me.

    This is probably the meanest shit I've ever said in my life, but I don't feel a lot of sympathy for people who are poor but still have a bunch of children.
    I'm obviously not talking about parents who suddenly lost their wealth due to external circumstances, but those who are very much aware of their living situation and still chose to get more kids than they could properly take care of.
    I just don't get it, especially when the parents need to work themselves to death in order to provide for their family (which just makes them more absent from their kids' life, and usually results in the older children having to take care of the younger ones).
    I understand that sexual education and contraception is not available to everyone, but I think most poeple get the simple idea that sex results in making babies. The risk of which could be reduced by even just simply pulling it out or restricting yourself, which is obviously not a fun way to live your life, but isn't it worth it when your childrens' well-being is at stake?
    I'm probably being ignorant here, so if anyone has deeper knowledge about this issue, please enlighten me.

    Well that's Yesstyle for you. Basically everything they sell you can find at any cheap asian online retailer like aliexpress for quarter the price.
    Unless you want the luxury of instagram girls pushing the item in your face, and a less scammy looking website - then go for Yesstyle, I guess.

    You just reminded me: boba is fucking awful
    I don't know if it's only where I live, but it usually tastes like sugary water with the slightest detectable flavour, and while those things that pop in your mouth are nice, don't get me started on tapioca...
    It doesn't help that it's overpriced either.
    I imagine most people only drink it to be trendy, and like squint their eyes and try not gag while doing it?

    even then, it's mostly just the excessive fake eyelashes she applies in the very corner of her eyes (which is hella unflattering imo, but whatever)

    I feel like I'm weird and creepy, but I really grew to love this community, and even became somewhat attached to some users whose personality resonates with me a lot, even if we haven't interacted other than giving upvotes and stuff. I kinda want to be friends with some of you? 
    My friends irl all started to feel awkward when my mental health issues started to take over my life, and distanced themselves from me and the situation, so all I have now is my boyfriend, my disfunctional family and this forum...

    I mean, sure, it's just points on a forum, I'm not going to throw a rage fit over it when it happens, but it kind of defeats the purpose of the thread? Obviously these are supposed to be unpopular opinions, so a lot of people won't agree with them, but this is supposed to be a place to freely express them without the major backlash you'd get elsewhere. So my rule of thumb is to not downvote anyone I don't agree with here, but maybe this is the unpopular opinion?

    After a few days of watching how discussion's been progressing in the different threads, my current ideas are:
    - general thread (slower pace, no memes or random gifs, but not very strictly bound to just major tea)
    - nitpicking/meme/fashion thread merged into kind of a "funsies" thread (with the occasional Kenna look-alikes and other slightly OT things), for people who aren't only here for the very problematic stuff 
    I really don't think we need separate threads for these things, as they all appeal to the same kind of audience. But I would refrain from calling it "nitpicking thread", since that's kind of confusing.
    - a clean receipts thread (with no commentary, just like a resource center, as you said)
    There's no need for a thread just covering youtube and other posted content imo. The problematic videos and shooped pictures/candids can go to the receipts thread and everything else (simple pictures, downloaded videos) can be stored elsewhere with a link to the page.
    And that's it. I think we can get away with a total of 3 threads that could suit everyone's individual level of interest in the topic.

    I just went to see that discussion about the coffee shops, and jfc there's always at least one person in the comment section stating they've started following her after seeing a call-out video about her. And the reason? She's pretty and has a calming voice... I mean what the fuck people??

    I'm not going to argue with the rest of your comment for now, as we could probably go on for a while, but you are wrong about this one.
    No mod had directed people to this thread, I posted a PSA in both the main and the nitpicking thread asking users to come over here to discuss their opinion, instead of just leaving them in the thread. The mods just rolled with it, after some comments started to appear here in that context.
    I also already wrote down my detailed suggestions and what we had agreed upon previously in the thread regarding how the subforum should look, as nothing from that was taken into account when it was eventually created. I personally was shut down with a "you wanted a solution, we gave you one" when I presented my points in a respectful manner. So I think you can understand that after this, I'm not very positive and proactive about this issue.
    I don't even know how I could reach more than a few users to give their opinions, and whether it's even possible if you aren't a mod or admin. But it's obvious that they haven't taken any steps in order to ask people for feedback. So sorry, but this looks like a half-assed attempt to me.

    You're right that I'm impatient, but it frustrates me that it looks like we're ruining one if not the most popular thread on the site, something that draws in a bunch of people outside the general PULL user base (and a nice community imo).
    People are announcing one after the other that they are leaving, which could be salvageable, but not if we just keep waiting for the numbers to drop, and then be like "yep, this wasn't how we should've done this". Especially when we already know how the Yumi King subforum situation played out.
    We have precedent, we have comments stating clearly what people want with many upvotes backing it up, we have users expressing confusion and disappointment regarding the current situation, so what else do we really need?
    I just don't see the point of trying to force a well-established thread with almost 300 followers to suddenly become a tidy receipts thread, and redirecting all those followers to an entirely new "nitpicking thread" for casual discussion. That's not how online communities work (besides being unnecessarily bothersome).
    I'm also not going to single handedly report two days' worth of posts - that's the reason I'm not applying to become a mod. But it seems like I'm not the only one not doing that either...
    There's not much going on at the moment, which usually naturally slows down a thread for a while, but I think the lower engagement rate can also be a good sign that people are getting overwhelmed and losing interest due to the confusing format. I can't see the actual numbers, but that's how I personally feel right now for sure.
    About the variety in content, in the past two days we've dicussed: Kenna's hair, Kenna's outfit, tattoos in Japan, Mikan possibly shading Kenna, Kenna getting a croissant at Starbucks... welp, that's really something I've never seen before
