What is your opinion on the FNF community? You can focus on things you like, things you don't like, or just the community in general.

Personally, I like the FNF community because

- It's what made me discover GameBanana and all of the amazing people in it (looking at you, tomBonkMaykrZeeByte, and The Lone-Wolf :D)
- They helped me with HaxeFlixel problems using their tutorials and guides <3
- Learned HaxeFlixel through modding FNF, my first non-Scratch game programming language!
- Met some amazing collaborators through the FNF community!
- Work motivation skyrocketed due to FNF!
- Collaboration skills skyrocketed due to FNF!
- Rhythm game skills skyrocketed due to FNF!

I don't really like the FNF community, because

- Too many mods
- Toxic, sometimes douchebaggy community (not as a whole, just some community members)
- Odd memes (but I love most of them <3)
- Most of the community is kids, kind of odd due to the game's intended audience

So, now what's your opinion? I'm open to hear it, and I can't wait to see what you all say!

    A lot of the issues with FNF are inevitable facts of life, my main problem is just how terribly the site staff and members themselves both seem to handle it, something I have talked about in the past.

    Hidden for: We're not looking forward to another fiasco, so please tone down the passive-aggressiveness in your
    As mentioned by bonk, alot of the issues of FNF are facts of life. Hell, even if one staff spotted a reuploaded submission or mods that the creators not given permission to be modified or repurpose to a different thing (VS Sky, Mid Fight Masses, etc), the community (not all of them, some) decided to grab their guns and knives and point at the staff with DDoS attacks, causing massive traffic which slow down the performance better, and the same people who complain why stuff have to happen also complain why the site is slowing down.

    It's not our fault that the community is composed of underage and immature brats due to dumb Youtube Algorithm, assuming every CARTOON DRAWINGS ARE KIDS CONTENT, or edge fuck of a generation. If they can't obey the rules here, why bother attack the site over a fucking game that's targeted to teenagers above? It's like giving a 10 year old a cigarrete and teach him how to smoke and swear like an adult.

    As for staff not trying their best to mitigate the problem, we can't have full control and it's up to tom to decide what's good. He and many others know that giving them the same treatment as Baldi's Basics last year (Section Shutdown Warning) will not work at all for a big community as Friday Night Funkin'. Therefore, they decided to allow the community to break certain rules like low quality/low effort submissions and troll content, as long as too much effort has been put, in response to a moderator withheld and/or trash submissions last September. Even if attempting to go ahead and close the entire section (disabling content to be added to that section or downright deleting it) FNF Community find ways to break it just to have their content to be posted on Gamebanana by submitting the mods to the Gamebanana Section or other random sections that's unrelated to FNF. I know their ways and all they want is to grab attention and being noticed by countless poor ass  cringe content Youtubers who have no life or sympathy and just wanted to milk it out because it earn them alot of ad revenue.

    In short, the FNF Community is pointing a gun to Gamebanana and anything that would break the community (deleting submissions which the majority thinks that it's good, despite how horrible they were), they will drop a DDoS attack out of spite. Would you want Gamebanana to die because of FNF? Is this what you want, FNF Community?

    But hey, we're gonna have the Hub feature soon, where it can be sorted out and can also be filtered (probably hiding content at all by the Managers; ie: low effort submissions, sorted by Manager to the "low effort tab" where it cannot be shown in the Homepage but still accessible and appear in their game section). Think of it as folders in your desktop for the Managers and staff.

    at the past it was great but these days the community lost their creative, everything is like Friday Nifngh FUking VS *insert a random character* from *insert a random fandom* and most of the mods is 250 MB with just 3 songs, making it terrible, also, the community is really toxic with 50% of the old mods getting trashed for a dumb reason like other mod creator racists other mod creator and makes the mod getting trashed and something like that, also, almost every YT channel uses a bot

    Best way to describe this community: a diamond in the rough. It could be a lot better, but despite all the bad things that happened, I don't think they discredit all the good shit that came from this community.

     All the things that this community has achieved with mods is pretty crazy. Lots of talented, creative people. People are learning how to code, make art, and produce music all because of a little web game. That is seriously amazing. Mods are pretty much the backbone of FNF and I'm glad about how far they have gotten. Think about what the community will do when the full ass game comes out since it's going to have better mod support.

    As for the negative stuff, toxicity and cringe content doesn't really bother me as I'm already used to that stuff. The Twitter "drama" is so pathetic I'd rather binge watch some shitty reality TV show than give any attention to that. It's pretty easy to ignore anyways. What ACTUALLY bothers me is all the pedos coming out of fucking nowhere left and right. It's disgusting. Also, I'm disappointed that this community consist of too many damn kids. We need more adults please.

    The FNF community is a wonderful place full of hundreds of extremely talented people and players who love the game. It's a game where anyone can make something if they want, and a community who's willing to help. But there's two sides to every coin, and in the FNF community that's very apparent. The biggest problem in my opinion, revolves around "certain individuals" who I won't name. Another problem is the underage player base and demographic, because in all honesty, eight year olds should not be playing this game when it was intended for audiences a few years older. These are just a few of the problems with the community but these are problems that can and have appeared in almost any community. In my overall opinion FNF is a game that was never ment to be as big as it is, but through the option to build an extraordinary community and then give that community access to make whatever they can think of, it flourished, as you can clearly see now. This game is what it is today because of the amazing community and developers behind it, and no matter how many problems we encounter, we'll keep moving forward.
