If PD.com is to become a place of ALL GOALS ALL THE TIME!!!

No-one wants that, we're just talking about making it easier for people who want to get together to do stuff.

First step is figuring out what it is that people might want to work on together.

Oh I know.  I think it's a great thing, it's also part of what makes this place great, and I really don't want to sound like a wet rag.  I just like all facets about the forum, I'd hate to see any part of it (I'll repeat: ANY PART OF IT) go.  As well as people posting less.  Because of mandates or whatever. 

I also miss those who'd be posting more or have left, for WHATEVER reason.   

Meh.  Pay no attention to me, I think I'm just being emo.

It's a valid concern, and I'm glad you brought it up.

After reading the last couple of pages, I think I must have completely misunderstood the thinking behind the OP.

I don't know, if there are going to be rules and such, I will not be participating.  Sorry.  :|

Are you kidding?  THIS IS DISCORDIA.  Rules are suggestions.

I think it's being made a lot more difficult than it needs to be.  Or maybe that is just me.

No, it is.  These tend to be normal first steps.  Pretty soon, we'll go through a Reductionist phase, and just start doing shit with each other.

I shouldn't have used rules....

I know rules =/= goals =/= deadlines, they just fall into the same avoidance category for me. 

I got that from...

If PD.com is to become a place of ALL GOALS ALL THE TIME!!! then I probably will post less than I do now. 


...which makes me very uneasy.  Sounds like work....

AFAIK, this project is intended to hook us up with slike minded people in order to work on projects together. Nothing with rules or deadlines. That said I do not think "socialising" counts. Not that there shouldn't be socializing shouldn't be allowed on my PD, but that it shouldn't be part of THIS project. There are plenyty of people who want to socialise. Fewer people are into the projects though, so this is a useful tool for them.

It was more, I think, a project designed to give people help with carrying out ideas and personal goals by brainstorming and so on.  People who are close to each other generally can get together on their own

A Tucsonite is like a Christian in several important ways.  For one thing, they believe what they say about their god in the most literal, straightfaced way possible.  For another, they both know their god can hear them.  The difference between the two, however, is quite vast in terms of their relationship with their god; Christians believe in His benevolence, but Tucsonites KNOW of The City's spite and hate.

I’m going to clearly state my goals, and then I’m going to ask you to state yours, if you have any (And not everyone does, after all...To some, this is just a rather interesting social group).  Then we can discuss where these goals meet, and what we can do to accomplish them, having learned from past mistakes.  You know, like a biped ought to do.

I think I caused some confusion by not starting a new topic as it makes it much harder to keep track of things.  So I've created a new topic and wiki page

This is not a project.  It's an informal census to see what goals people have in common, as a foundation to see if they would be interested in working together to accomplish them.

If this process doesn't implode before the first milestone - figuring out where everybody is - then a project (hopefully more than one) may come out of it.. but we're not there yet.

Honestly, it might simply be a reference guide.
