Throughout my life, I've never been able to "Evaluate" myself; I can understand characters and other people, but I could never quite figure out why I do specific things and why I like/dislike certain aspects of something. I say this upfront because what I'm going to infer is not 100% right or does not express my feelings in adequate ways.

I'm leaving Nintendolife. While I don't plan for this to be permanent, it may just end up being permanent. Now, this isn't because of the articles or because of the features; they are all fine. The thing that has me leaving NL is the community.

I always feel disheartened whenever I go onto a thread on this website. I'm not entirely sure why, but I do have a few guesses as to why I feel the way I do;

The community feels two-sided. No matter what argument their is, it always seems to end up being two-sided. I see people joining one of the sides and never really seeing the middle-ground that exists.

I believe some users are so confident in their thoughts that they see other thoughts as insignificant. I feel as thought some member of NL are completely set on their ideas and beliefs, so much that they are starting to view different thoughts as wrong. While I don't mind people being confident in what they think, attacking other people for thinking different things just feels wrong to me and depresses me.

Some members do not care about being kind anymore. I'm seeing that some members (specifically AlexSays) are just outright insulting individuals and the community of this website. While I'm fine with criticizing individuals and retorting to posts that challenge beliefs, I don't feel comfortable around people who are actively just insulting everybody.

I feel all of those reasons add up to one specific point that I'm trying to express; The community here is not nice anymore. I don't think I can say anything more to elaborate my thoughts.

It was good while it lasted.

Well good luck on your decision. I inderstand though some people here are the worst but they're not anything that can't be dealt with, wish you luck and I'm pretty sure you're always welcomed back if you so choose to return. Also well conversations on a Nintendo site=Nintendo fanboys, you want less biased opinions try a gaming site for all systems.
