EDITORIAL: Are We Really “Basic”

EDITORIAL: Are We Really “Basic”

Hit the jump, because this just might be the article to change the site forever. So sit back, relax and enjoy as you read this ecstatic editorial that you just might be featured in. Check it out after the jump!

Are we really just “Basic” Users? Let start off by reading the definition of the word Basic.

Is that what we really are, Plain and unsophisticated. The answer to that question is my opinion and I’m sure in many people’s opinion is NO!


These two users just were two guys who came to the site and started to comment on Articles. But then they wanted to go farther, they were dedicated to go farther. And look at them now, trusted users.

We also have these two users

They’re not “Basic”. Dr Doom is a writer he takes time out of his day to write great stories for us to read. That’s not plain or unsophisticated, that’s Genius! (Also make sure you check them out at the link below). Pasto, a man who takes time out of his day to write up Great 101’s for the site, reviews, and more. (Also check out his fansite when you get the chance.) But they just don’t do it for the fame, they do it because they enjoy doing it, and to satisfy the people with something good to read every day.


And These Four Users Who are just on the site to bring some life to it! 

Just because some of these users does not post as much articles does not mean they are unsophisticated, they are ingenious!

Even the Users we don’t even see often have a goal and are dedicated to do something.

 So where not Basic, Were not Plain, Simple, or unsophisticated, were Citizens. Citizens of a Community (CBM) . Each Citizen has their own unique qualities and skills. Therefore, I will use this article to try to make a change to the Site, to make us Citizens!

You're putting way too much thought into the use of the word "Basic".
Pasto - 4/14/2014, 7:51 AM
Oh nooooo....no no no, mmm-mmm. I'm out.

*Leaves thread in a jetpack*

Is not really a big deal to me
MercwithMouth - 4/14/2014, 7:56 AM

it may say basic next to your name NightWatcher but at least you have 4 stars!

just keep plugging away and eventually you'll get there. looking at the hall of fame, you are one of the top contributors so it's got to happen so long as you keep on creating quality articles. keep it up!
MrSotoMan - 4/14/2014, 7:57 AM
I must have basic bitch syndrome
MrSotoMan - 4/14/2014, 7:59 AM
Do any of you have any idea how you came into contact with this basic bitch shit?
Pasto - 4/14/2014, 7:59 AM
I think it'd be cool if we had the ability to type up what we are. What I mean is, they add a feature in the account section where you can type in a box what you'd like to be considered as, and it will change. But, they could prohibit fowl language or someone who wants to try to pass as a basic user or a power user or an administrator.

Ex. I could type '(Soldier of Fortune)' in that little area, and thats what I would be considered as.

If they did that, that'd be awesome.
MrBatmor - 4/14/2014, 7:59 AM
Well dev and mcn are not basic users..they are trusted users,...:P..
i think this system is based on the number of times you get laid...thats why yoss is basic...:P
Gusto - 4/14/2014, 8:00 AM
N.W., you [frick]in' rock!
Also, Mex sucks!
MrBatmor - 4/14/2014, 8:01 AM
@pasto what kind of "favours" did you give the big g to come back!! :P...(just kidding ...pls don't report me)..
Pasto - 4/14/2014, 8:02 AM
If they added the feature idea I said, they could allow users to really personalize their accounts.
cipher - 4/14/2014, 8:02 AM
Hahahaha, I just wanna be "citizen drunk". I don't really think I bring much to the site, I'm kinda just here for the fun, y'know? I love all you guys.
cipher - 4/14/2014, 8:04 AM
Doop's right, though. Keep it up, mate, and you'll be a Trusted User before you know it.

You've been doing a great job so far, NightWatcher.

Doopie - 4/14/2014, 8:05 AM
more mysterious than the making of Cap's shield or how Squirrel Girl beat Thanos: The Return of Pasto. Pasto who did you have to suck off?
NightWatcher - 4/14/2014, 8:13 AM
Thanks guys, i appreciate all the positive feedback. :)
sKeemAn - 4/14/2014, 8:36 AM
Damn I've been basic for about 5 years. its time I became a "citizen". Nice write up. I'm here for laughs and giggles and to talk about comic books and the movies that represent them.
CorndogBurglar - 4/14/2014, 9:28 AM
I just want to be basic...

DrunkenNukem - 4/14/2014, 10:03 AM
lol @corndog
SauronsBANE - 4/14/2014, 10:04 AM
This is so stupid. If users seriously care this much about the meaningless words of "basic" vs "trusted", I think you're getting a little too obsessed. Try finding other movie sites to visit and get news from in addition to CBM. Branch out a little. Be part of other online communities too. Be normal.

For some of us, Basic is an improvement.
LEEE777 - 4/14/2014, 10:10 AM
Basically good read :P

Hey EVERYONE'S special on here, in a good way!

We ALL love CBM's!

DrDoom - 4/14/2014, 10:11 AM
I got a mention!

RorMachine - 4/14/2014, 10:11 AM
You guys are lucky they didn't go with "special needs users"..that was the original plan;)

Nah but seriously...what? It's just a damn description of your user privileges, you're reading FAR too much into it. But refer to yourselves as citizens by all means..I'll even do it too.
QuestionDAnswer - 4/14/2014, 10:12 AM

Damn, Pasto you're back? MrBlackJack isn't going to be too happy about this. He and his Dead Rabbit Gang, were all celebrating your death. Even death couldn't defeat the great Pasto. Pasto lives!
GodzillaKart - 4/14/2014, 10:17 AM
@Soto: That video was pure gold.
GodzillaKart - 4/14/2014, 10:19 AM
@Ror: Oh, sure! Easy for you to say, Mr. "Power User"! That better be a description of your drug habits, because otherwise I'd have to assume you're trying to keep us down!
OpticBlastWins - 4/14/2014, 10:39 AM
I take the word basic as the highest of honors. I also second pastos idea. "The Most Basic User" "Basically Always Drunk User"
TChalla - 4/14/2014, 11:08 AM

We are Citizins!

dethpillow - 4/14/2014, 11:17 AM
i vote they rank us by fruit. just copy the levels used in the Ms Pacman videogame. make those ranks. that would be perfect.

either fruit or forest animal, i guess.

becuz when you propose that everyone is suddenly a citizen, well then what does that make higher ranked people? what word is that gonna be?

see what i mean? citizenship is problematic, becuz first thing that would happen, very first thing...

citizens will be sorted into either plebeians and patricians.
and then how long before they come knocking at your door, asking how much you liked the latest Marvel Studio movie? did you like it a lot? did you think it was too funny? too not funny?

and you'd better choose your words right or else u might just disappear.
that's how it happens. in fact now, i'm arguing that we can't afford to change basic to citizen, that would be the worst thing we ever did. just look back to the Trojan War, who opened up their own gates to their demise? The Trojans did.

look at dracula and police without warrants... you have to invite them in yourself, other wise they are helpless to catch you doing anything bad. the price of freedom is be able to avoid people trying to catch you. so truly, i say, think again upon this.

I'm somewhere between a snake and a mongoose. And a panther.
CorndogBurglar - 4/14/2014, 11:58 AM
@ dethpillow

lol, rank them by fruit...

Would that make me an apple user, or banana user?

wait...banana user sounds fruity

wait...i guess it SHOULD sound fruity...

Now i'm confused.
Wolf38 - 4/14/2014, 11:59 AM
Honestly, it's never occurred to me to put much thought into user-labeling here.
CorndogBurglar - 4/14/2014, 12:24 PM

They took it down because he's still here. A fact that causes much sadness to the CBM Community.
WeddingTux - 4/14/2014, 12:40 PM
that's right I do have a goal. I am dedicated!
Abary - 4/14/2014, 12:51 PM

Nah, but seriously, this is taking things kinda seriously lol. I haven't become a Trusted User yet when I probably deserve it, yet I'm still coming back every day happy as ever posting as many articles as I can.
TheManFromMars - 4/14/2014, 12:55 PM
I'm not basic! I have very special needs!

Pasto came back from the grave, huh?
