Incidentally, I've noticed that Roger's "this board is not living up to my expectations" threads are another one of those - pretty much guaranteed to devolve into snark and namecalling - topics.

I never saw a buzzsaw I didn't want to stick my peter in.   :lulz:

Saying 'the myth', I'm talking about the idea of 'a real PD' as though there's one way PD should be.

Awesome ideas itt and it was awesome to come back to this forum and see the changes.

Luna and Slurrealist's ideas are exciting.

Thanks, Dingo.  I'm planning to copy my idea out into its own thread tonight and see if there's enough actual interest from people willing to write to do it.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Also, if the Principia Discordia forum is the lightening rod shouldn't it be viewable to guests?

Yes, it definitely should.  I understand wanting to hide O:MF from guests.

But it doesn't make any sense to hide the PD subforum from guests. 

If one of our goals is to draw new people, that runs counter to that goal. 

I mean, this domain is going to turn up pretty high up when people do a search for the PD. 

If they then click on the forum and see all kinds of subfora, except, for one devoted to PD, there is a good chance they move on.

Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

That would imply structure or planning. Someone might have done it on purpose but I can't recall what that purpose was or even if I ever knew it was hidden to guests.

Yeah, but those thread (legitimately) threaten a certain Narrative that we have. "Squawks" (a RAW term, deal with it) are what you get from a community when you threaten the Narrative.

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=27933.0

The function of the Squawks are to make enough noise that eventually the people involved in the Put On become aware that there are parts of reality which this Reality Tunnel doesn't cover, and that they have to revise the Reality Tunnel.



I think the recent threads have actually gotten to the point that the participants have recognized that the current Narrative needs to be threatened. And are getting creative about how to re-form it. I'm looking forward to participating in projects again, based on some of the energy in these threads.

Me neither.

But I guess that explains all the recent infighting and quibbling among our ranks, the "in" crowd, the ones that did get invited to the poolparty at the peak of forum ... guess who got snubbed? again? :fnord:

Many of us have not read much/any RAW so explaining things with dictionary words without deferral to an author might be more useful.

You mean for the subforum description?

If you got any suggestions I'll be glad to incorporate them. I wrote it that way because I figured the people that'd want to specifically talk about that stuff probably do know the names.

I think she was referring to Telarus' post above yours, Trip. I think the subforum descriptions are fine as is.
