[ANNOUNCEMENT] Relaunch
#21
I think I know a few reasons why I don't participate as much as I'd like. I'm not sure if they hold up for everyone, but I can see them being generalized somewhat. First of all, discussions here are sort of a chore. Not to say they aren't enjoyable or enlightening, but so many people here write long posts and use niche or overly flowery language. I think I'm also at fault for this one, but it tends to make the conversation hard to jump into when everyone else seems like they could write essays on the topic, no matter how mundane. It's a little intimidating.

Along with that, there's just not a ton to talk about. I agree with star_carr that we should get more stuff in that isn't explicitly anti-civ. I don't know how to do that, though. I don't consume much media anyways.

And probably the last problem is, I'm not the kind who loves technology (who'd have though). I don't come home salivating at the idea of getting to my computer and opening up the internet. I'm not interested in the culture of constant sharing and always having opinions. And I think to some extent this is what a vibrant forum needs. I like this place, but maybe an anti-civ forum is just going to be slow? Or maybe the purpose of the forum needs to be fleshed out better (in our minds, not necessarily written down). What is this place good for? If I have a novel idea, I'll probably just take it to Discord, cause it allows for faster response and more fluid (and human) conversation than a forum. If I was a newcomer to anti-civ ideas, would I want to be in this place to learn more? Maybe. Is this a good place for anti-civ folks to get away from anarchists, leftists, etc. and discuss stuff unique to us? I don't think so, but that seemed to be loneraven's goal.

(this is a new user because I couldn't get into my old account)
