I'd like to see the Robot Devil in the upcoming season; such a great character.  Also Scruffy, as long as we don't learn anything significant about him (continuing the running joke), that is...

Here's a good explanation as to why double posting is generally not allowed.

Maybe you should try Nazi Germany before making such a stupid comment.  I am not surprised you went to the worst online discussion 'trick' in the book.  In every society there are rules.  In online communities, it is true that the very strictness and nature of these rules varies.  But often in large communities, and especially one with a dedicated community like PEEL, these rules tend to be strict and focus on presentation of posts.

If you want people to actual focus on what you say and what your opinions are, then at least take the effort of doing some correct spelling and grammar, punctuations are great too.  The point is, you don't look like you took much effort into your posts, then why should be we respond with the same kind of effort?

Is it just me or does it seem like there's been an abundance of new posters bitching about the fact that PEEL has *gasp* rules for posting lately?

Expect a 'noob surge' when the new season is released.

Back OT: I'm getting tired of Zapp, I hope they do something new with him rather than just lusting after Leela.

Yup; this place is going to be "noobs-a-plenty" when the first episode airs...

I'd like to see Kif get promoted over Zapp & terrorize him for a while.

I think that would ruin Kif, I mean, I kinda hated him in the episode where he was slapping people around and being completely not his usual self. But seeing him punch Zapp is always a little epic.

I'm still a noob - I feel terrorized

i'm no noob, i was just shocked at the amount of posters ganging up on folks here. i'm also used to a forum that is much more lenient.

unfortunately, those forums don't have a heap of futurama fans that enjoy discussing the show all the time. that is why i come here occasionally.

although jeezum comes across as cool and level headed, i have not found the same for many other posters. it surprises me really, as futurama is such a cool show, id expect their fans to be as well.

Uhm, I am not sure 'cool' can be applied like that to those different things.  If by cool, you mean chilled out and laid back.  I am not so sure, that is actually the crowd that Futurama appeals to.

In my mind, how Futurama fans act, is exactly how I would think they would.  See, they care.  They care about the show, but more importantly; the very community they have build up around the show.  Anyone is welcome, yes yes, but they have to play by our rules.  No one likes a rebel.  Especially one who is doing it because they didn't know better.

I thought the 'wink' showed that I was joking, clearly not. Oh well.

I agree, with the above - noone here is a jerk really, they all have the capability of being jerks, sure, but don't we all. I'm a fairly new person, I post quite a lot though, and even I can tell that they have a community - fair play to newcomers, but don't come in and try to change things, or complain about the way things are done. I've yet to see a forum that allows that to happen. I've never found anyone here to be particularly disagreeable - apart from Coldangel, once or twice, but that's just personal experience.

Jeez... you want some cheese with your whine?

People come in here acting like they only just discovered the show exists two minutes ago, and proceed to spam the place up with a plethora of discussion topics that we've already done a thousand times before, and then they don't even show the courtesy of spelling any of it correctly. Yeah, old hands get annoyed about that.

False. Even if somebody says, "I hate PEEL, you're all a lot of lousy douches," this doesn't necessarily mean a banning is in order. Lots of PEELers dislike PEEL at times, but voicing one's displeasure isn't grounds for whipping out ye olde banstick. The community should try to embrace and educate these new members, not force them out with a banning. You would've been banned long ago if we went by your idea.

Expect a 'noob surge' when the new season is released.
We thought that there would have been a large surge when the DVDs came out too. Looking around, doesn't seem to be exactly true. The make-up of PEEL is collectively much younger now (younger being post-2005, in my opinion), but nowhere near the surge expected. However, given that these will be actual episodes aired on a cable network first run, I expect some jolt in membership. And I expect a lot of these people will be stereotypical "noobs", especially considering these episodes are airing on Comedy Central, a place I find less nerdy and more likely to propagate noobs than, say, [adult_swim].

But some people who have just joined PEEL like Futurama_Freak1 (yes I know he's not that new) will contribute to PEEL greatly.

"omigod! i jst watshed futurama 4 th 1st time eva and i am itz biggest fan! lol lol omg brb, do u guyz fink dat fri and lila shud hav babby?"

That just sums it up perfectly!

I just snorted my drink, it's not that funny, but to some extent it could be true.

And to be honest - I've seen a few people come in in the time I've been here, some of which haven't been so bad - none seem to stick around but that's besides the point. I don't think I'm too bad for a noob, I came on here with the intention of contributing, and if it wasn't for #fc I'd probably still be too scared to post. The older members can be a little intimidating with the whole "We all know each other" thing.

Just don't scare them off - correct them nicely and they might stick around and become valuable meat, ahem, I mean assests to the website.

Where's these boobs pictures I hear of?

I agree with nutmeg about the "We all know each other" factor.  I'm a noob, and I got razed or hazed or whatever you want to call it, but I think I'm acutally o.k. to most of you guys now.  Besides, I'll never meet any of you in person, so I don't really need to be friends with you anyway.  The mutual respect and decency is good enough for me.  I think I'll just stay away from the site for a while when the new episodes come on, I was on a forum about a book and it was just insane when the last one came out, everybody bitching about spoilers and whatnot, just wait a few months for the fervor to die down.  

I know I see a lot of you guys on here regularly, and yeah, it'll be hard for me to too.

edit (just to say something on-topic as well): More Lrrr.  Less Mom.

lol at this one.

first off, he makes another mention on incorrect spelling. hey buddy, you do realize that this is a message board right? typing correctly isn't nearly as important as getting ones idea across.

secondly, nobody feels like searching through dated threads that are pages long just to ensure that their thread idea is totally new. reposts happen on every forum on the planet, lighten up.

id also like to point out that groening and cohen developed this series together. it has a little geekdom(cohen), and a little social satire. expect fans of both.

It is.

secondly, nobody feels like searching through dated threads that are pages long just to ensure that their thread idea is totally new. reposts happen on every forum on the planet, lighten up.

So let's all work together to keep them to a minimum.

Despite popular belief*, not everybody speaks English as their first language. I know, shocking! If you actually type correct English it aides your idea getting across to everybody. You know, because there is a difference between "we're" and "were".

If you had actually clicked the link Jezzem supplied in Reply #8 and read it (I'll provide it again here because you obviously didn't read it and seem to be too lazy to do anything), you would've noticed that although you don't pay a membership fee here, others are footing the bill. Every duplicate thread wastes bandwidth. We here at PEEL like to be smart with our money and not waste it for superfluous "reposts" like "z0mg, its niblers shadwo!!1" or "laylas a mutint!1!!" Additionally, if you use the search function then you'll likely find most of your questions have already been answered. Double additionally, you'll likely find that there are ongoing discussions on these topics. Just because "every [other] forum on the planet" allows it doesn't mean it's a good idea. Example: autotune.

Robot Mafia, Roberto, Flexo, Nixon, Robot Devil, Santa Claus, and Mom and her sons of course. 

I'd like to see Zapp do some new things, besides badger Leela.  I'd like to see him go after someone else.  Or have Kiff be in charge for a while.

I've been coming here for awhile now and yes there are people on this board who take this shit too seriously. Pick your battles or you will be sitting here fighting with them until your fingers bleed and all of a sudden you start to dislike Futurama. Let's face it, we are all at least a little dorky because if it were cool to go and post in a Futurama message board, more people would be doing it. If you can cut through the bullshit some people do have some intelligent. insightful, and amusing comments.
