View Full Version : How Do You Become A Celebrity On EoFF?

This got me thinking.

Who or What is a celebrity here at EoFF? Importntly, WHY are they a celebrity? In today's modern age where a celebrity is someone who appeared on a TV once, what makes a celebrity on this site? Do they have to be in your face, or only appears once in a while to make a impression to you? Is the familiarity of their posts or their randomness that makes them more famous to you?

Is it a gimmick (The split personality thing comes to mind...)?
A personality?
Spamming?

I now pose this question to you, people of EoFF? Who is a celebrity here IYO and (importantly) why?
Secondly, could anyone become one if they changed their posting habits to something more "popular"?

It's usually any of these:

* The longevity of the member.
* A gimmick.
* Being infamous for being dumb.
* Being a funny and crazy person for long enough.
* Having something about you that just clicks.

Though of course, they'd need personality along with it.

I'd say Psychotic would be one of those funny crazy EoFF celebrities, plus he's a nice guy who's very friendly to people. Meat Puppet would also be one of those guys. I can't think of any with a gimmick that I'm willing to point out personally. Cloud No. 9 is the type of EoFF celebrity that's infamous for being dumb. We love to hate him. :) There are too many people to list for the longevity thing.

But none of that works unless you have a good/interesting personality, like I said.

And I think you could, but unless it was a gradual change, as in a person growing up and becoming more mature, it comes off as fake and it's unappreciated.

Being able to annoy people without getting banned helps. Look at Wesley. Everyone knows and loves him!

Being the center of dramah works as well.

You might want to reword the "without getting banned" portion, MILFy, considering I've been EoEO banned three times. :p

On-topic: I think the easiest way is to be able to joke around on a wider scale. Bleys was famous for this. Lynx and I do it pretty often with campaigns and such (along with other pranks, such as turning the Squeenix forum into just Xenogears threads).

Also, it helps to be well-known and intensely disliked by the staff. How many people know my name just because of April Fools of '05? :p

I would agree mostly with the bolded, italic-ed, and underlined statement. This is probably one of the more important statures. Also, helping with the frontpage (site Staff), or becoming a CK will definitely make you more seen around the forums. If you do things the PiP way, you'll definitely become well known. Unfortunately, the last time someone tried that, he was BALETED.

An alternative method would be to do Sigs and Avatars for everyone, or having some sort of gimmick, as Rye said. Rye and ff7+ff10gurl are the most well known, especially since they do not only the most work, but some of the best quality work, at least, digitally/on the computer. Or you can delude yourself, and act high and mighty, while not actually being high and mighty, and yell at people for 6 pages while being completely correct the entire time. Like me. Of course, I'm not a celebrity. I'm just sadistic.

If you can't get total and complete domination of the forum, then try for one of the smaller forums, or a part of one. Ehh, that didn't make sense. If you're really good at FFX, e.g., then post alot at the FFX sections. Helping people and being a reliable and knowledgeable source of information will definitely get you to be one of the more well known members, if only in that forum. But the problem is versatility, in such that case. If you do more, there's more of a chance you'll mess up, but at least you know more, and you can help out once in a while. If you become a help consult in the sections, then have a strategy guide to back you up, it'll help, and you won't have to use your memory all that often, since, you open a book, and say "do this", with your own personal twist.
Note: the strategy guide option/assistance will NOT work for FFIX.

Comedy and craziness is also a good idea, as previously stated. No need to elaborate further.

No offence or anything, but I think this is the stupidest thread title in the history of EoFF (or the time I've been here, and don't flame me because I've said this as I'm entitled to my opinion).

There is no such thing as a celebrity on EoFF. You don't even know anyone on EoFF properly. Probably only 5% of EoFF users have posted their pictures. You may be all buddy-buddy with them, but in reality, you don't know them one bit (disclaimer: in most cases).

Yeah, in theory, any kind of "celebrity" here would be *more* real/truthful than the "real" ones. Actors are known for roles, they're performing. We, on the other hand, just do whatever it is we feel like doing. If we perform, it's for our own amusement.


I appearantly am well known enough in the EoEo section. Whether or not I'm well-liked varies from person to person. But I'm definately known. Don't know how or why, I think it has something to do with the fact that I'm sure to post in just about *every* controversial or remotely heated debate. And I'm just full of helpful advise if someone else has a problem. Plus I hit on just about every girl I come across that isn't part of staff or simply too young.


But since Rubah asked for it.... I'll need an address and about 75$ to cover gasolene for the trip. Also, I'll need to ask for food an a shower whilst I'm there. But if you like, you can have your dance. ;)

A celebrity is one who is so ugly that their face is featured constantly on all forms of media as a form of pity. The are also often paid ridiculous sums of money for this. Although they alone believe themselves superior to society, celebrities are shunned by intelligent individuals, though many still follow the lives of celebrities out of morbid curiosity. Celebrities are treated as animals in some countries, being fed thin strips of carrots and celery.

Celebrities are often exploited for their bizarre and disconcerting looks, (see Michael Jackson) in a series of "celeb pics" present in magazines and websites. Celebrities should always be avoided, as they often carry diseases and are prone to biting others, grabbing the buttocks of complete strangers, and parading about town all liquored up and off their mash on ecstasy pipes.

While it is true that celebrities often exhibit some form of talent, it is by no means a requisite. Many celebrities, in fact, exhibit no talent at all. The only true requisite of celebrity is to have one colossal public failure to one's credit. This alerts the media to one's presence. If the proto-celeb is able to secure an agent, celebrity status is assured. The quality of the agent will determine whether the celebrity becomes a superstar or a guest on Hollywood Squares.

Celebrities are classified as a form of parasite.

Regarding Shaun's post - Yes, there are celebrities at EoFF. A celebrity is someone that is famous. An EoFF celebrity is someone who is famous around the EoFF community. If you don't think they exist, you're terribly ignorant.

Regarding the topic at hand...

Do things. Run competitions, get involved in said competitions, help people in the help forum. Post things about YOU. Show your personality, make jokes, have fun, let people know what you like and dislike. Use smilies, but not too many. Have a noticable name - people are a lot more likely to be noticed with an awesome name like "Fwab" than a fit-in name like "Cloud_[Sephiroth's Last Name] xXx" - make it a name that people will remember and find easy to either say or find a nickname for... and then, importantly, <i>don't change it every six months</i>. People will very rarely get known if they keep changing names, because people will know you by your name more than anything around here.

Be social. PM people, chat to people in the chatroom or on instant messengers. Find some kind of group and ask to be involved if it's your kind of thing. Offer insights to people's problems or threads. I don't mean say "My favourite number is 23", I mean letting people know if there's any reason that you have a favourite number, is it a sports star or something? Life experience leading to it? Anything? Show yourself, don't be just another member on EoFF, be a person in a community. Go to a meetup. Call someone you've gotten to know. Don't stop there, though. Keep getting to know people. One of the main reasons this community thrives is because new people come in all the time, and that means there's always someone new to get to know in some way or another.

Don't count on being good enough to be a CK because there are a lot of those kind of people and we don't CK people very often. Don't try to be a badass or a class clown - there are two kinds of famous in this world and you don't want to be known for the wrong reasons, or you might end up being banned. Then you'll be famous, sure, but I can tell you that in time, nobody will care. You don't see The PC Fascist, Aika, The Model Citizen or Braska Spira being discussed by those who discuss PiP and Crash today. In a couple of years' time, you can either be banned and out of the picture or not banned and in the picture.

Being around for a long time means nothing. I know more members than most people here, and I can tell you a <i>lot</i> of members have been around here for over three years and still to this day haven't made a real name for themselves. They haven't made it personal for them. How can we know someone if they haven't made themselevs known?

You can make a good impact in a fast way, too. I'm not sure on how long it took for The Captain to make such an impression, and I know other members have been good members and just gained popularity by being incredibly social and posting in a lot of threads. But yeah, most people who are well known here either joined when the community was small and therefore it was easier to get known, or else they took their time to get really known. I think I took about a year or more before I got a vote in the EoFF Awards, despite being (I think...) one of the first 200 members in the UBB (it's either that or I'm completely wrong and the quote I found that out from was referring to the original vB).

Why the do you care? I mean really.

Why not? Questioning how processes (Such as becoming a "celebrity" on EoFF) creates a better understanding about us and others as humans in general. It would also raise why we think certain things, by certain things happen... This is the same method used by scientists in discovering how chemicals react with others. "How/Why does that happen like it do?"

The only difference mine is more a hummanist/psychological pursuit.
The real question, if you disagree with this question, why do you care enough to attack the propagator? That is something that REALLY must be studied...

I just thought it'll be a enjoyable discussion. That was the main reason behind it.

DK
04-23-2006, 01:29 AM
There must be many more relevant questions to gain a better understanding of us and humans in general than how people gain "celebrity" status on a final fantasy message board. Of the many things that could be discussed in a place such as this where however many people gather to share their opinions, this is probably one of the most inane things I can think of. Why does it matter if someone is a "celebrity" on a place like EoFF in the first place? I've not looked it up recently, but for me the word "celebrity" sound be defined as a person who's actions merit celebration. How many people who're classifed as celebrities in this day and age really deserve that? Not a lot, for me.

Jack
04-23-2006, 02:10 AM
I didn't say it mattered. You seem to think I'm sitting at home going "THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOO IMPORTANT". It was just a idea. The fact you're getting stressed enough about it to get angry about it reveals that it matters (in one wahy or another) to YOU.


There must be many more relevant questions to gain a better understanding of us and humans in general than how people gain "celebrity" status on a final fantasy message board.
True. Although most members keep them for the EoEo board. I was using the example I posed to illustrate how (effectively) EoFF is a essentially a arena of action and reaction. This is how scientists see the world. I've just changed the boundaries.


Of the many things that could be discussed in a place such as this where however many people gather to share their opinions, this is probably one of the most inane things I can think of.
By admitting that you CAN think of it does raise the point "Obviously its crossed your mind..." The other point is that people others were discussing it fine until you decided to get all high and mighty on the subject. You are aware that by asking "inane" questions like this, we've managed to develop as one of the primary species on this planet?


Why does it matter if someone is a "celebrity" on a place like EoFF in the first place?
It was a question. It raised a discussion. It matters as far as that. Lots of things in this world don't matter. The result in the football, the dog barking outside... It is our opinions and reactions to these that MAKE them matter.You liking of the team that lost at football makes the result matter. You're opinion that dogs are bad makes the barking matter. You're agressive reaction towards this thread makes it matter.


I've not looked it up recently, but for me the word "celebrity" sound be defined as a person who's actions merit celebration. How many people who're classifed as celebrities in this day and age really deserve that? Not a lot, for me.
I personally feel we should celebrate our fellow man more. Maybe this thread will reveal why we are celebrating their actions? A question to you, why has no one given you reason to celebrate? Your point also raises a issue, is a member like crashNUMBERS a celebrity? And if so, does he deserve it? kyono thinks not so.

How about you?

Importantly, Just because the subject matter doesn't appeal to you, does that mean it is wrong? Most people would pass over such a title and ignore it. But you feel the need to attack it... That alone reveals a lot about you. You do realise that by doing this you've illustrated what BoB was talking about CrashNUMBERS in practise...

Do you want to be a celebrity on EoFF Kyono? Because you're going the right way about it. :D

Tip: Relax. This thread will go away one day, be forgotten and you're life will carry on it's merry way.

Just skimmed through the thread... Don't worry about it Jack, you're a celebrity in my eyes.
How about the site staff do some sort of member "Fame Ranking"? A list of the top rated 200 or so members?
Members rank being determined by the number of votes they get per day/week, and members vote for one an other (no voting for yourselves) by clicking on a link in the other members profile. Vote for whatever reason you like and vote for as many people a day as you like, but only once for each person.
This would certanly be a way of determining who's hot and who's not.
You never know jack, you might even be in the top 100.

Jack: You can't offer an idea, receive criticism, and then blame the criticism for it not being important. You brought it up in the first place. It's not important - this is just an exercise of beliefs. You asked the question, some people said "it doesn't matter." So either argue or don't - but don't try and blame other people for it. It takes two to argue, so you arguing back proves you care just as much as anyone else.

Now, on-topic: I never understood why people want fame in the first place. I don't desire fame at all and wouldn't do a single thing differently to achieve it. I disagree with everything BoB said. No, you shouldn't PM people - if you don't naturally do that in the first place. No, you shouldn't post often - if you don't do that already. You shouldn't do anything simply to become more well known. You should do everything exactly as you want to and if a lot of people come to know you, great, and if not, that's just as good. If you're even remotely active around the forums, you'll find people with similar views who you can talk to.

I'm well known by the people I give a damn about around here, and that's all I care about.

I didn't say it mattered. You seem to think I'm sitting at home going "THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOO IMPORTANT". It was just a idea. The fact you're getting stressed enough about it to get angry about it reveals that it matters (in one wahy or another) to YOU.

Yeah, that was an assumption based on your "this cheered me up" and "this didn't" when you pointed out that you're not one even though you've been here for three years. Just like you're assuming that i'm stressed out by this, when all I am is amused. :D


True. Although most members keep them for the EoEo board. I was using the example I posed to illustrate how (effectively) EoFF is a essentially a arena of action and reaction. This is how scientists see the world. I've just changed the boundaries.

Fair enough.


By admitting that you CAN think of it does raise the point "Obviously its crossed your mind..." The other point is that people others were discussing it fine until you decided to get all high and mighty on the subject. You are aware that by asking "inane" questions like this, we've managed to develop as one of the primary species on this planet?


Of course I can think of it, it's sitting here staring me in the face, and m y natural reaction was to think about it and others like it. If it wasn't here, I wouldn't have considered that people would be concerned over such a thing. We may well have developed into one of the primary species on the planet through questions such as this, and the planets far worse of because of it.


It was a question. It raised a discussion. It matters as far as that. Lots of things in this world don't matter. The result in the football, the dog barking outside... It is our opinions and reactions to these that MAKE them matter.You liking of the team that lost at football makes the result matter. You're opinion that dogs are bad makes the barking matter. You're agressive reaction towards this thread makes it matter.

I don't know why you assume i'm being aggressive. Is a negative response automatically aggressive or something? Or maybe because I used a cuss word? You're reading too far into my dialect. The thread was a question, I asked a question too. Results in football are of far greater meaning than how one becomes a celebrity on an internet forum.


I personally feel we should celebrate our fellow man more. Maybe this thread will reveal why we are celebrating their actions? A question to you, why has no one given you reason to celebrate? Your point also raises a issue, is a member like crashNUMBERS a celebrity? And if so, does he deserve it? kyono thinks not so.

Again, I wasn't attacking anything. I was curious as to why something such as this matters to anyone.

Hmmm.


Yeah, that was an assumption based on your "this cheered me up" and "this didn't" when you pointed out that you're not one even though you've been here for three years. Just like you're assuming that i'm stressed out by this, when all I am is amused. :D

Loony BoB raised the point of 3 years. I said "This cheered me up" because (believe it or not) I enjoyed the fact that there was a point to the question. As for the "this didn't", surely everyone (no matter their desire or direction) likes to believe that a higher level then themselves is possible? While I have no great want to change my character or personality to become a "celebrity", the idea that such a goal is possible for me is fine. The same goes for a lot of things. Surely you wanted (at one time or another) to be ABLE toget good grades at college and be ABLE to get the job you wanted? Whether you did or didn't is irrelevent. The fact the possibility is there is important.


It takes two to argue, so you arguing back proves you care just as much as anyone else.
I care for the argument. The question itself is (effectively) irrelevent if people ignore it. For example: If a scrap of paper is left on the ground, if ignored it is irrelevent. Even if this paper is the winning lottery ticket for millions, it is still irrelevent. Only until people notice and react to it, does it become relevent. However, it can still only be as relevent as "It's a piece of paper" or "This cleaners never clean up do they?".
The degree of relevency and "caring" relates to the reaction. My reaction (if you note) is to two things:
1)Kyono's argument
2)The concept raised by the question


We may well have developed into one of the primary species on the planet through questions such as this, and the planets far worse of because of it.

Your opinion...It's valid (granted) but I feel rather then slip into a "accepting" state ("I accept that people are/are not celebrities at EoFF" "I accept that water is/is not good for you") we SHOULD ask these questions. What is there to lose?


I don't know why you assume i'm being aggressive. Is a negative response automatically aggressive or something? Or maybe because I used a cuss word? You're reading too far into my dialect.
Considering I live in the UK where our dialects cary beyond most nations, I've never heard a "dialect" where a swear word was considered as normal banter. While at EoFF, I use the example of the "Queen's English" which is taught in every school/college/university in (and around) the world (except in USA and Canada). It's the most popualr form of English, and as such, the use of a the "cuss" word means a form of aggressive negation to the point.
And before you say it, I swear all the while IRL.
A negative response is not aggression. Rastilin's point to the topic was negative, yet I do not believe he is being aggressive.


The thread was a question, I asked a question too.
As are most in this topic. We're still discussing your question.


Results in football are of far greater meaning than how one becomes a celebrity on an internet forum.

Depends on your input and reaction to them. If a person has NEVER seen/played/heard of football but knew only of a internet forum, then this thread would be more important to him then if I said "Birmingham 0 - Leicester 2" wouldn't it?
The same can even go if a person was not aware of English or England itself, but only knew of France and the French language. If I say "Sandwich" they'd look at me odd wouldn't they?

NOTE:Before anyone says "The French also use the word "sandwich" I'd like to point out that its a "borrowed" word. In the French language, there is NO word for sandwich, and they only accepted it because the rest of the world uses it. It is only a modern acceptance though, because of the rivalry between England and France.


I feel we should celebrate our fellow man more as well. But I think people who are considered "celebrities" should be doing something worth celebration.

There we go! You're questioning the word "Celebrity". So (working with Kyono here, who has done things to be a celebrity? Who DESERVES the status? Within the boundaries of EoFF, who has done good work?
You could argue IMO, that Cid is a celebrity because of his creation of this world. Any others?


I was curious as to why something such as this matters to anyone.
Edit: I pretty much agree with everything Raistlins said, too. I'd rather be myself and be a nobody than change who I am to be somebody.

I'm not sure WHY it matters, but it appears to so there you go. As for your final point, I agree with IMO. However, I'm willing to suspend this for the sake of discussion.

ON TOPIC:

What do we have left? We've removed the view that longivtevity matters (nor can we round it down to an actual date). We also feel that beinga CK or Staff doesn't mean much.
Helping others is good, but this is limited exposure, because we have EoEo where everyone helps everyone else.

We also are not sure of what a "celebrity is?! Is a Ciddie winner? A staff recongnition? Someone who has done something worth celebration?

So what DO we have? The question still stands: How Do you become a celebrity at EoFF?

As for never hearing cursing in part of a normal dialect, are you serious? Wander round any college or place where teenagers hang out and it's quite obvious if you just listen that a lot of teens and young adults quite frequently use curse words in normal banter, for whatever reason, be it to emphasise a point or just because they can. It comes forth as a natural part of your vocabulary. Is that a good thing? Not necessarily, but eh.

How many people are likely to have never heard of/seen any sports yet know what an internet forum is and about becoming a celebrity on one is/means? Fact is supporting teams and the results of all sports played across the world bond many people together, gives people something to cheer and support, can bond people from many races and countries, e.t.c. I don't see how celebrity on an internet forum is comperable to that, but that's just me I suppose.

You're right, I do hear swear words being used. As i noted, I use them as well. But you said they were part of a dialect.


Dialect
1)A regional or social variety of a language distinguished by pronunciation, grammar, or vocabulary, especially a variety of speech differing from the standard literary language or speech pattern of the culture in which it exists: Cockney is a dialect of English.

2)A variety of language that with other varieties constitutes a single language of which no single variety is standard: the dialects of Ancient Greek.

3)The language peculiar to the members of a group, especially in an occupation; jargon: the dialect of science.

4)The manner or style of expressing oneself in language or the arts.

5)A language considered as part of a larger family of languages or a linguistic branch. Not in scientific use: Spanish and French are Romance dialects.

What you're proposing is that in modern clture, the swear word is okay. It isn't part of a dialect. Used in normal banter perhaps but not a dialect. They may be more prone to using the word, but it isn't necessarily part of a dialect. There are people who speak cockney who don't swear, and there are some who do. Speaking "Cockney" doesn't mean you swear.


While at EoFF, I use the example of the "Queen's English" which is taught in every school/college/university in (and around) the world (except in USA and Canada). It's the most popualr form of English, and as such, the use of a the "cuss" word means a form of aggressive negation to the point.

The fact you CAN have that situation means we have to accept it. There are people who care less about sports than EoFF (True) so it's possible. Think about the publication of celebrity magazines. People evidentedly care about celebrities, so if we narrow our field and associate it with EoFF (as I said earlier in the thread), we can see such a thing happening. Consider people's posts as how people judge their "status"... You're getting hung up on the "internet forum" thing. The internet is simply a forum of infomation. Like magazines. Like communication. A mass of opinions. If people can have opinions, can believe in celebrities, what stops them thinking of them in EoFF?

Regarding Shaun's post - Yes, there are celebrities at EoFF. A celebrity is someone that is famous. An EoFF celebrity is someone who is famous around the EoFF community. If you don't think they exist, you're terribly ignorant.

I am not terribly ignorant. Tell me, when you see one of these EoFF celebrities, do you think...


*gasp* Wow, [famous user's name] has replied to my post! He said my name! This is a truly FANTASTIC moment!

Okay, that was exaggerated. But the point is, you see these people online every day. You just think, "Oh, it's [famous user's name] posting again..." Celebrities are seriously respected. No one at EoFF is respected to that extent considering we are just communicating by text-based messages. There is no motive to look up to anyone here that highly. Sure, there are great people here, but I'm sure nobody wants this celebrity status, but most importantly: it doesn't exist.

Celebrities are not seriously respected. They're just famous. Let's take the dictionary.com definition - it's rather simple: A famous person.

It doesn't say they're respected. It doesn't say that people get excited that someone is in contact with them. It doesn't say that they have to be intimidating or anything of the sort. A celebrity is nothing but a famous person. So no, you're not ignorant, you just didn't understand what a celebrity really is.

You're both precisely striking gold here, though. Why don't we know much about them? Because they mess their lives up so much that they don't want us to know the real people behind the skin. Models are the ones who annoy me the most. They have zero talent, and expose themselves for a bit of cash and publicity. Why!?

Spiffing Cheese, that is entirely irrelevant. Anyone who hates Germans because of Hitler is a complete moron. Anyone should know of Germany's change since back then. I hate celebrities because of their behaviour, not their image. Their behaviour reinforces their image, but they go around without a care in the world for anything (the majority of them), buying fur coats, or hell, whatever they can buy with their endless wallets...

Celebrities are well known for the "fight against fur". Particularly models.

Also, saying models have zero talent just because they don't take up an office job is also ignorant. Anyone with a high IQ would realise that taking up a job that requires you to get paid large amounts of money for doing very little work while travelling the globe and doing the odd charity stint can't be a completely bad life. Is it stupid to live a good, easy life? Just because someone doesn't work hard doesn't make them stupid. Sure, a lot of models out there might be dumb, but I've seen dumb people in every walk of life and I don't go pinpointing them.

I think you're putting higher expectations on celebrities than other people, Shaun. And once you come down to it, they are just other people.

The reason why I dislike this in general is that they make money by simply exposing their bodies, whereas others really try hard in life and don't get as far. Who do you think deserves more? A doctor who saves lives, or a model who, er... entertains lives? There's no justice.

Ugh. That argument is so retarded - people deserve what other people are willing to pay them for their services. It's called the free market. You could say that a doctor who does boob jobs isn't worth the 500k/year he makes, but people pay him that. So don't blame the people who make the money - blame the massive amount of people that make that job possible. It's also just ridiculous to dislike a person simply because you don't think his job's worth that much money.

You have a point, yet I cannot agree with you. The fact that people are willing to pay a determinate amount of money for a job does not mean that job is worth the money. If it were so, there would be almost no swindlers in this world. I can never think that what Paris Hilton does is worth more than, say, a doctor who saves lives. I even find it immoral. And what some talentless celebrities do can be, in my opinion, defined as a swindle towards common people. Do you think that if people were not o stupid to be interested in them, they would be making any money?

Again, a ridiculous argument. How do you define "worth?" The way you're defining it is "how much I value it." The only way to objectively define it is "how much, taking everyone into account, is it valued?" Your swindlers analogy is a straw man - swindlers lie about what they're selling.
<i>You</i> may not value what an actor or other celebrity does very much, but evidently a lot of other people do.

EDIT: Actually, it's not even a matter of values. In a celebrities case, it's more like an investment. A actor, in effect, gets paid by every single person in the world that goes to watch his movie, because he gets paid according to how much revenue he'd generate. A doctor, on the other hand, is only paid by the patients in his area. More people "make use" of an actor, because a movie generates more revenue than a single doctor. But again, why does it matter to you what someone else is making?

It's on the parameters we use to define what's "worth" that we don't agree. What's "worth" in my system of values is not what most people appreciate. It's what's is more useful, gives more emotion, spreads more universally positive values and so on. Of course, I'm talking about a worth that can't be valued in terms of money here, because most of the times people take it for granted or aren't willing to pay for it. And many could disagree with me, like you do. But this is my opinion.

Any value without a concrete application (i.e., money) is not objective. You're just restating the premise "what I personally value more." "Useful" presupposes the question - to whom and for what? It's subjective. Emotion is obviously subjective. "Universally positive values" is something nonexistant; it depends on your personal idea of "positive."

Ok, let's use your definition. A single actor touches far more peoples' lives than a single doctor, therefore "spreads more emotion" goes to the actor. A single responsible athlete can spread more "universally positive values" (of which there are no such thing, but that's another subject) than a single doctor, therefore that point goes to the athlete.

Celebrities are well known for the "fight against fur". Particularly models. Celebrities are also well known for wearing fur. Many models who join these campaigns will later go on to wear fur down the catwalk. They'll jump on whatever bandwagon they can if they think it makes them look good at the time, or/and a lot of money can be made from it.


Also, saying models have zero talent just because they don't take up an office job is also ignorant. Anyone with a high IQ would realise that taking up a job that requires you to get paid large amounts of money for doing very little work while travelling the globe and doing the odd charity stint can't be a completely bad life. Is it stupid to live a good, easy life? Just because someone doesn't work hard doesn't make them stupid. Sure, a lot of models out there might be dumb, but I've seen dumb people in every walk of life and I don't go pinpointing them.Being a model doesn't mean you're dumb. But depending on what work a model does they will take money to advertise products they don't use. Which I personally think is very tacky. And models that bare alot of flesh are supporting the exploitation of women.

I have no particular problem with celebrities, but I don't much care for people who practically worship them. It's their own business, of course, but it just seems counterproductive to me, not to mention somewhat insulting to people who you actually know and have done good stuff themselves.

I don't think its fair to hate anyone because of what they are.

P.S: Is there a celebrity at EoFF?

P.S.S: I've noted that this will probably be the last post in a dying topic.

Yes, you're getting more and more famous by the minute. Try eating dried watermelons. It will increase your fame in the FF:Advent Children forum.
