    They might be heard but they often quickly become the ones people ignore.

    For example take the RWDE label on tumblr who are people who act JUST like the people Miles called out on the twitter post.

    By and By people have stopped listening to them.


    So yes being aggressive gets you heard but that doesnt mean it gets the message across or leaves an impression that people want to listen to.

    And if you are being aggressive people OFTEN tune you out.

    It's been weeks since the 8th chibi episode. What's going on?

    Next episode is in June they made a post on it and everything.

    Most likely Chibi wasnt suppose to be this early and it was instead suppose to be Nomad but they most likely had an issue that delayed Nomad so they used Chibi to stop gap since its easier for them to do that from what I gather.

    But that is all guess work.


    The only thing we know for a fact is the next one is in June

    Generally its been my experience those people ARENT the majority.

    Often people dont want to be aggressive its only a small few that do and those ones only seem like they are the majority instead of the few they actually are.

    Revan is right. Usually they're not majority. But given they're easily the ones you hear more, if not the only ones you hear, it's easy to believe they are the majority.

    And that's ultimately another problem: they can easily, genuinely, become the majority due to being the only voice being heard.  That's due to an unwillingness to see another perspective, at least most of the time, as well as an unwillingness to even seek another perspective.  Even a different way of thinking can alter the final conclusion considerably, but there's no attempt to even try.  It's a humongous part of the reason why the while "character resurrection is inherently bad because it negates character development" rhetoric gets spread: the inability or unwillingness to see that claim for how fundamentally and objectively flawed it is, plus an unwillingness or inability to effectively point it out.

    In short: shit like this spreads because no one wants to, or has the know-how to, challenge it.

    Well, whatever path RWBY ends up taking from here on out, I can guarantee you one thing: I won't be walking it with you.

    I'm out.

    I've actually been mulling it over for some time now.  And I should be more specific, I plan to no longer actively contribute to any topic on any RWBY forum.  I do plan on, when the next season comes out (as I still plan to adhere to my own rules, 2 strikes and the Spiderman Principle being in play so far), to critically analyze and offer my thoughts then, but no more than that.  And I fully expect season 6 to be my last one.  Based on everything we have seen so far, I expect more of the same sub-par writing, with emphasis on "doing the cool thing" and wowing the fans visually over actually telling a solid story.  We have enough to go on to conclude that RWBY was heavily flawed from the start, and that the writers were relying on their own brand, Monty's name and the general rule of cool to carry this show, even when they knew what they were going to do from season 3 onward, even in the face of the rules of their key set-pieces that are Semblances and Aura.  In the end, I think that whatever they do, it will be to appeal to the majority, regardless of whether or not any such decision enhances the narrative.  After all, them saying that they would continue to make RWBY as long as it was popular should have been our red flag in that regard.  Allowing the fans any personal investment in the creation process, no matter how small, should have been a red flag there, too.

    I will be leaving my profile up, so that individual people can PM me, and I will respond to those, but I'm pretty much done with the public forums.  Quite frankly, it stresses me out too much, and I am in a place right now that I need to reduce the amount of stress in my life.  So this goes.  I also plan on producing more pieces on RWBY, similar to the ones I already have up on my profile, and will add them as they are done.

    I do hope that I end up being proven wrong.  But I don't think that I will be.  My DeviantArt profile is AraelIsrafel, if you choose to contact me there.

    That's too bad to hear. I too, hope you're proven wrong in the end. But in any case, I'll be saving that name in store for later. I really look forward to reading your reaction to Vol6.

    Understandable I don't agree with your view on RWBY but I won' begrudge you your choice especially in regards to stress and keeping it down.

    So I hope rwby does prove you wrong but I wish you well none the less.

    Sucks to see you go. Even if we didn't agree it always provided interesting food for thought.

    My view on RWBY will depend on whether or not Pyrrha comes back. But from what I have noticed, we've been given hints about it from time to time.

    Again, if anyone wants to continue talking to me, you CAN PM me, since I am leaving my profile up, and will check it periodically.  To be fair, that's more for the fact that ALL of my posts will vanish if I delete my profile, and I am NOT silencing myself in that fashion.
