Some games and communities have been better than others, but the reality of it all is that there will always be immaturity on the internet.

It's simply human nature, that anonymity brings out the worst in us. However as some people say, the anonymous you is the real you.

I think so yes.
especially them old grindy mmo's are a good example for this.
alot of old people with wife and kids play those games. and you can often sense their maturity. BUT ofcourse there are exceptions and there will also be those little brats killstealing you :)

its just that nowadays kids start to play on the computer at an earlier age as before which gets more immaturity on the net.

So when I point out to members of a MMO forum community they have entitlement issues, and I'm considered a troll for doing it, am I troll? :o

Depends really, mature is subjective to they talk about adult themed topics to being helpful to people who ask for it. When I see a guild post that they're mature they aren't really saying anything unless they're specific about what they're mature about

Its the worse thing about MMO's ,but i notice 2 categories,not just immaturity.The other thing which i notice is antisocialism.Too many keep to themselves,they dont wanna talk at all and im not talking about ones who are busy or afk.It could be just me but no1 really wants to talk.I like to get to know the ppl im playing with but most dont really want to.So then i think gee....why do i even bother joining a guild if its just for joining instances.Oh well maybe im asking for too much....but thats my other gripe about mmo's. :shakehead:

I guess that depends on what you consider trolling. Everything is individual perspective.

I think it's safe to say though, that for good or worse, everyone in some way acts different online than they do in real life. Anonymity provides lack of consequence, which in turn allows people to act in ways they never would in real life, where what you say and do are subject to real consequences.

People say things online they would never say to anyone face. People do things online they would never do to anyone at work or school. Why? Because they can without any kind of repercussion, like getting punched in the face, or thrown in jail for sexual harassment or stealing.

And this is why the internet will never be mature.

Maturity can be a very opinionated thing to determine, just cus someone is 30 and has a wife and kids does NOT make them mature in any sense of the word, I have literally seen 13yr olds online that have been more decent human beings then 20+ yr olds so age has nothing to do with the subject.

Depends on what you mean by mature.

There's always going to be people younger than you, who may visit the same sites as you.

There's always going to be people who like to make fun of other users.

There's always going to be mods who act like they're tired of being mods.

There's always going to be people who never read the faq of a site, until the point where many users pounce on them until they finally skim it.



If you're looking for maturity in a sense that it will make you feel at home, or that it's the perfect and idle forum, then i'm pretty sure that there is nothing like that. They're may be different forms of it, be it mods who ban everyone for anything, but I don't think there's one out there.

Personally, I feel it'd be boring if most mmo forums were mature.

If you'd like maturity go to work or school there is no such thing as a mature COMMUNITY online there will always be immaturity on the internet or one immature troller or a child who needs help in a dungeon who always wants your help.

From my perspective, the definitions of maturity and immaturity on the internet are so muddy that the two words have devolved into the latest us-vs-them bludgeons to justify hating on people who don't act the way someone wants them to act.

Posted in guild descriptions, they mean about as much as political buzzwords to me cause it can range from "we don't use foul language or say anything negative to each other here" to "we talk about sex a lot here, best be ready to read it".

The internet has too wide a variety of people on it to generalize it to mature or immature and hold any solid meaning. Hell, to some people (despite the day and age) playing video games makes you immature by definition cause "video games are for kids".

Really? One of the major reasons I quit Tera was because of that insufferably annoying area chat wherever I went. World chat wasn't any better as far as I remember.
Have you been playing it recently? Did it get more tolerable? Because I was wondering if it's worth coming back to.

Every community in the world will have it's share of idiots. But that's okay for MMOs, thankfully we have guilds.. Which still have it's fair share of idiots, but that's besides the point.
