Huh? Not everyone goes into the introduction part of the forum, I don't visit it, for example. Honestly, why should I? I don't really see why you are offended over..., well, that. And not feeling welcome just because no one greeted me? I dunno man. I've joined several active forums, introduced myself and never got a reply. I didn't mind. Didn't join the forum to be overwhelmed by Welcomes. I joined the forum to talk, or to roleplay.
Just because they haven't greeted you on the forum yet, doesn't equal people not liking you. Like some have pointed out, they don't visit the welcome forums - many just skip into the whole finding other roleplayer section of the forum. From my own personal experience, I've had someone say to me that if that's all you have to worry about in the world - then you're pretty lucky.
Gratification is not something you should seek nor expect to come immediately, nor does the absence of it mean that others find disdain for you. Please, do take this to heart and mature a little. The people on this site are not here to grant your every desire. You will not always have your desire granted.
Even if it were, Poe's Law is something that's taking effect in the world. I've been finding it increasingly difficult to discern jokes from serious statements... Which is honestly frightening. Unless it was made obvious, of course.
I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't. The thing is, there really are some people who get upset when they aren't put at the center of attention, so they'll act out dramatically just for all eyes to be on them.
I know of a few people like that, yeah. But then again, this could also just be making fun of people like that, it's difficult to tell. It's hard to show that you're joking by being over-the-top when people are starting to actually act like that in a completely serious manner.
