What is a summie?

Postby Eros Prime » Fri Jun 24, 2022 7:27 am

Not sure if this is the right forum. What exactly is a summie? I have seen the term more and more these days, but I can’t figure out what it means. I suspect it is a term unique to the NS forums, since I haven’t seen it anywhere else

More specifically an influx of posters who just try to start fights and generally act like trolls.

I have seen quite a few summies in my time. They are usually just bored shitposters and simple far-right/far-left trolls looking to get a rise out of people.

My definition of the word "Summie" is:

A person who often makes low-effort/low quality posts which are in the region of spam posts. The term "Summie" usually applies to Forum 7, though it may also apply to other subforums as well.
Ek Sê!, A Nation on Eastern Altropia, basically an Alternate Universe France.

Since those people have anime girls and whatnot on their flags, I decide to use him in my flag, and also, this is not Henry on my flag, it's Konrad and a marine.

I forgot to add the porn spammers. They seem to pop up a bit more around summer sometimes.

I just put it to differentiate it from the southern half of the world.

So negative
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

Children need to spend that summer energy somewhere, for some it ends up being here. I maintain it should be the mines, but that's apparently "cruel" and "abuse".

Little turds already play minecraft all day anyway, they yearn for it.

What is wrong with playing minecraft? If you mean the multiplayer then maybe yes but if we're talking about the sandbox mode then there is no problem with that.

holy shit I never actually thought of it like that
Sweitchland is a nation based on the Texan Coast with a superior hold on global economics and shit tons of everything, like enemies. Our timeline is set in the 2020s doomsday. We have average civil rights, large technological advancements, above-average economy, military supremacy, and an actual competent government.

...Because it's not summer in the South?

I simply felt like doing it. :)

The only form of mining I would've been curious of when I was a kid was panning for gold in a creek or a river.

Huh, I got relatively active in the forums a month or two ago. No wonder everyone in the F7 age forum thinks I’m 17.

Kidding, sort of. I can see how folks would come to the conclusion. Not a huge deal, anyway…
For the relevant F7 threads, the girl on the left is Hilda, and the one on the right is Melissa (Lissy).

A class 13.8 civilization, according to this thingy. Assuming the Mistresses stay home. They probably will, they’re actually pretty lazy.

I remember 2-3 years ago we had this crazy kid repeatedly spamming the forums with a bunch of all caps nonsense and making fun of the mods. So much dedication and love for bananas he had.
