Eh just start talking to people more often and you will get friends. You said people ask "how are you" well thats a great place to start right there, use that question and start a conversation with the person then go from there :)

Even though I'm well known here and on the Main Site, I personally havn't made any real friends here. Sure I talk to people, and I will always help someone out or talk to them if they ask, but I havn't formed any real friendships or anything. I respect everyone here, and everyone should feel the same. That's all that really matters. We all share a common goal of game making, so even if you dont feel like you "fit in", you're still respected. It's just a forum, should be a nice leisure place. You shouldn't have to worry about anything.

Yeah, that's kinda the same with me, apart from the fact that my games suck and I'm not respected, lol.

I'm sure your respected, and if you think your games suck, they probably do since you created them, lol. That may sound mean, but if you dont have confidence in them then there's really not much else that can be said. Try to improve on them.

You're too harsh on yourself. I think that you are a great person on the forums. You seem nice, and you like to help people out. I could be your friend also. =)

Stop feeling sorry for yourself. It won't change anything, it'll just get people to give you attention and pity you for a couple of hours. But soon, they'll go away and forget about you, and your right back at square one. And who cares if you don't fit in? Life isn't about being the life of the party. You gotta be strong and take heart and believe that you CAN be great on Sploder, because can't never could.

I'm not trying to get attention though, I'm just saying my feelings.

I never said you wanted attention. What I said was all self pity will do is get people to give you attention (because that's what people do).

Yes, thank you for understanding. If you truly want something (like friends or better games), you gotta be persistent and work at it.

Well, it is kinda, because you feel isolated whilst everyone else is happy.

No way. Look at yourself, dude. You're a Soldier, you've got heaps of friends and everyone practically bows down to you. I've been here for at least 2 years and I've gotten nowhere.

I haven't got any proper friends

it doesn't help that loads of random people who I've never heard of post 'hi how r u?' on my MS page.
So... you're sad that you don't have friends, yet you're complaining about people trying to make friends with you?

Meh, honestly idc about ranks anyway, never did. lol I just see it as a reminder of how I've improved, but nothing more.

And just keep getting noticed, you have many things to accomplish, don't be mellow if it takes time.

Look, none of us have real friends. Except MIB Agent Bob, he lives a town away from me and got his number, keen on meeting him but other than that, I have neutral friends on here. :) or people hate me because I rage a lot XD

Well, I visited some of the member's pages that have been posting on my MS page, and it turns out that some of them are total pedo's which try to find out where people live. Who would want to make friends with people like that?
