    Disclaimer: This is probably doomed to be the least popular FC ever!

    If you have read this far: Leave your ego at the door...

    The ever growing number of Fan Clubs devoting themselves to individual users doesn't sit so well with me. If everyone gets a FC, what does that mean? Is everyone really that great? These FCs praise individuals for all of their alleged virtues: this person is a great artist; that person is really funny; the other person is a genius; etc. etc. etc....

    That is fine. Most of these FCs are started by someone other than their namesake, and I feel that appreciation of others is an admirable trait. What bothers me is the way the eponymous users allow these FCs to continue. If these users believe that they are special and deserve a FC, they are mistaken. Anyone who feels superior and entitled to a FC needs a reality check.

    I don't say this to bash anyone. I am in a lot of FCs and they are mostly devoted to amazing people. I just think there is too much praise going being cast on particular users, and that these users, as well as others, should look inwards.

    This FC is for users who have a grip on reality, know that they aren't perfect (or anywhere close to it), and are willing to embrace their flaws. These can be people who have FCs dedicated to them, FC members, or anyone who is in touch with the fact that they are flawed.

    Since I made this FC, I will start.

    -I am a horrible procrastinator.
    -I lack any real work ethic.
    -I never give anything my 100%, best effort.
    -I overuse smileys/pictures/pop-culture references.

    ...and I could go on for days, but I will turn the floor over to you guys.

    If you are given to introspection and you want to share something you dislike about yourself or need to improve upon, post here. If this FC gets off the ground we can find similarly flawed individuals and discuss our flaws.



    Owner: Nobody. (This is a democratic FC. I merely keep the books.)

    Fabulously flawed members:

    I have no motivation (barely went to one lecture at uni last semester)
    Im painfully critical
    too judgemental and too honest and loud with my opinions/judgements
    I like to be annoying at times and childish at other times

    You caught me before I left my keyboard :).

    That list gets you in. I am sure that, like myself, with your first post you were barely scraping the tip of the iceberg--it is better that way. That way we don't inundate new users.

    I am tired as hell. I am becoming something of an insomniac! I will add you in the morning.

    -I procrastinate
    -I do drugs
    -I've never had a 'good' relationship
    -The past constantly haunts me
    -I can't seem to permanently snap myself out of depression
    -My important people don't find me that important
    -I always seem to make the wrong choices at the wrong times

    Go me! I am a failure. Let me in.

    Discussinate away.

    Note: Scen, I make you co-owner since I know you to be a horrible insomniac and a good right hand man :thumbs

    EDIT: Co-owner in the "not really" sense, since there is to be no ownership here XD

    ^Well, if other people say it, it must be true :p

    Erk: that is an awesome sig. You get a rep for that, and you are in the FC for your flaws.

    I, too, am vehemently against organized religion. I wouldn't say I hate Christians and Catholics, but I would say that they have to do a lot more to earn my respect a lot more than the average individual.

    I love most organized religions (not a fan of the catholic church)! but im african so...I guess its to be expected!

    so do we generally just post here about being rubbish and stuff? or is there a meandering allowed?

    just in case
    I would rather moan about a problem than do something to help or change the situation...

    Ooh! Me too, 90% of the time. Getting involved is usually too much work so I steer clear, unless I am or someone I care about is personally involved. What selfish bastards we are, eh?

    P.S. Meandering is definitely allowed. This is me we are talking about--I would have to be the biggest hypocrite ever to disallow it :p

    I finally finished a job application form I been working on for the past few days which I shoulda finished earlier if it wasnt for the lack of motivation so I sent it then looking through my sent mail realised I sent an earlier rough version not the final thing do I resend the final form and explain or just leave it I been deliberating and then listening to music and playing XBOX cos im tired of deliberating I been telling myself I would decide later.
    I figured it would be easier to ask someone!

    I could try, not making any promises it will be good.


    That's another flaw, perfectionism.

    Well, I'm going to post a couple more flaws.



    -I get extremely nervous around almost any female (besides old people)

    -I've wanted to aks a certain girl out for 2 years, and have only almost attempted once. I could only get the words "Hey, bye" out.

    ^Dude. I am so there with you on just about all the flaws you have posted.

    I am deathly shy around girls I am interested in (or at least I was, before meeting my GF). Add to that the fact that I am dense as a box of rocks, and it is hard to get with girls. My current (and permanent, I hope) GF had to drop the biggest hints ever before I knew she liked me, and THEN I had to ask her out.

    That's a deadly combination of opposite sex related flaws. XP

    Hell yeah I'm against any fucking FC devoted to a person. I admit I joined one, the Spectrum FC, and I am indeed regretting it as it really sorta blows in there (no fault to Spectrum). Here's a list of my "faults" as other people would call them.
    -I am also a lazy SOB
    -I can be a complete asshole when people do something that irritates me
    -I am very suspicious of people
    -I am never honestly myself and am always putting on different masks to wear
    -I value my own opinion too much and think other people should too

    Damn, I suck. I am an elitist. Maybe I shouldn't join this FC after all.
