MLK is meant for "fanboyism" about The Lion King. People have made their names extreme names like myself and many others because of their love for the movie. People outside of this community might see it as annoying too. So what your saying is that names like NalasMate would be unintentional trolling? I'm not sure I see how MLP fans and TLK fans differ in this regard.
Also, saying that we're both at fault (MLP Haters and MLP Lovers) is absurd. The MLP Lovers are just talking about MLP. Maybe too much, I admit. But still, because we are talking about it so much, makes us in the wrong? Elaborate. I'm not sure how that makes sense.
If you could give me an example where we have intentionally caused problems, then my last point will prove invalid, but until you can, I stand by it.
Here's the thing, you have a forum dedicated to one subject, in our case The Lion King. While the forum itself can go around the topic, it is the primary source of discussion and interaction. When you have something like MLP that is becoming or has already become what it is right now, it outweighs TLK on this forum and therefore hurts the forum itself.
MLK IS meant for faboyism about TLK, but NOT for fanboyism of MLP, that is why MLP fans and TLK fans differ in this regard. Think about it this way, I'm a huge Kung Fu Panda fan, in some ways a lot more than TLK, but have you ever seen me spamming up any part of the forum because of that? No, because this is an TLK forum. You don't post about subject B on a forum that is dedicated to subject A, simple as that.
MLP lovers would be the first ones to considered ''guilty'' over this, if it weren't for that, we wouldn't have this ''issue'', but the fault goes back to the haters just as much. Yes, you are talking too much about it and it makes you in the wrong. As I said, this as a TLK forum is dedicated to TLK and while it has an off-topic subforum where you can talk about MLP,anywhere outside that part is where it gets annoying and frustrating to people who don't want anything to do with MLP. The major problem here are the macros and images that keep popping up where ever I look (chatroom and den) and you can't deny that you would be bothered yourself if someone threw a million images of some show you don't like at you face on a forum that is about a completely different show.
The beginning of the solution here would be to take things down a notch, ESPECIALLY with the macros, gifs, images and whatnot. That leads to less hate from our (haters) side and less need for moderators to get involved in this.
