Hey guys,

I have been contemplating this forum topic for quite some time. I have debated with myself as to whether I should post a topic like it, or just ignore the problem(s). I have decided to go with the former, as it seems to me that there are things that need to be addressed. Not everybody is going to like/agree with what I have to say, but, I have always though that the best way to get people to think is to displease them.

I have noticed that for some time now that people will spend more time talking about their own guns than the gun that they are posting the comment on. In other words, imagine that you have posted a new gun, and some person leaves a comment that looks somewhat like this: "Nice gun! I an currently working on a new crossbow that I think you will really like. It gets 100 ft. of range, it looks awesome, and it has a great 're-load time.' I hope that you check it out when it is posted, and give it a vote in the contest that it is posted in."

I would humbly submit to you that that entire message is spam. If you are going to leave a comment on somebody else's 'ible, please do. BUT, don't make 95% of the message about how awesome your new gun is/whatever. The message is supposed to be a comment about/on the 'ible you are posting that particular comment on. It's kinda annoying to look at my own (and other people's) 'ibes just to find that they are full of "my new gun is posted here" type comments.

Secondly, I want to talk a little about the classics. No, not classic music, but about the classic K'NEX guns. I will make this as clear as possible. The TR8/18 and the NAR are (in my opinion) outdated. Yes, they may get good range. Yes, they may only use a few amount of pieces, but this is NO excuse to bombard every 'ible with "well, this gun is good, but it is not as good as the TR8/NAR." I mean no offense, but nobody cares. I really don't think that anyone is trying to rival those guns, but there are guns that do so. The TR8 and the NAR may have been good guns, but they are from 2009, the K'NEX community has moved on. You may want to argue with me, but I will probably end up ignoring you.

Sorry for making this comment so long, but those problems really do need to be addressed. I did not mean to offend anyone, and if I did, I am sorry, but you must understand how I, and multiple others, might feel. Peace.

I agree, but think back to everyone's first 'ible. Everyone wanted recognition by posting "check out my 'ible!" on other people's forums. but the reason is that they wanted recognition. I even admit that i did this multiple times during my first couple of 'ibles, such as "check out my new semi auto gun!" on other people's 'ibles and forums, just for recognition. but as i matured, i realized this was obviously annoying to others, so i stopped. What i'm saying, is that almost everyone has said "check out my stuff!" during their first time on instructables, and even on other sites, too. Whoever's reading this, take a look at your past.
Agreed. Simple as that.

This is not a review... O.-

I never said anything about building guns... 0.-

As to judging, I don't know about that. All I said was that in my opinion, the TR8/NAR are outdated. Come on bro, they are from 2009. It is just my opinion...

Oh, and real quick before you give a reply to this comment that has absolutely nothing to do with what I am writing in within this comment... ADDRESS DIRECTLY THE STATEMENTS WITHHELD IN THIS COMMENT. NOT (as you must admit you usually do) TO SOMETHING COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT. Thank you. =D
Guns were built incorrectly. Kind of hard to judge something that was never built correctly. End of Story
KILLERK I think you should just give up. I don't want to see you banned over this. The TR series's amazing reputation will overshadow this review. Everyone already knows how good the design is. This just isn't worth it.
agreed I apologize to all
And again, you did not reply to what was in my comment... as you almost always do. Sorry bro, but unless you want to make your argument strong, you can keep not addressing what is in my comment.
this totally needed to be said
Finally, someone agrees with me. =D
lol =D I don't actually believe I am the only one that agrees
