the ironic thing about that is i got all grumpy feeling that everyone was loving your list and ignored mine. i think its a grass is always greener thing.
this thread will inform future threads. thats the way things go with dissensus, people are a bit slow on the uptake and don't process things immediately. someone will post a thread in a couple of months thinking it was their brilliant idea and it was actually something you said on this thread.
my rhythm thread the other day was inspired by this list by the way.
I could sense these Barty vibrations from over here. I knew he was sad. Yes third mate, it's not ideal. Have you got a commensurate amount of engagement for effort put in? No probably not, but as Barty says, look at the amount of graft he put in over Barty week and everyone just called him a cunt or laughed at him. I've been here 20 years and I've had one thread that got some engagement. But if you go back to the start of that thread, dematerialisation, it's just me sulking, just like you are sulking now. I was threatening to storm out, cajoling people, abusing them. Page after page of it. No one was playing along. I put huge effort in. Went back over every page and individually thanked people for every comment and responded to it! Funny to think of it now, but it was hard work. It's not easy dragging people along with you. It's not easy.
I do know it is frustrating. I do understand. Partly you have to keep asking yourself, am I doing enough? Am I communicating as clearly as I can? Do they understand what I am saying here? Sometimes you might have to reframe the same simple idea multiple times before anyone gets it. You know, this is the game. Thankless graft!
You've done a good thing here, and it's not going anywhere. It won't disappear. It HAS had engagement. You have had actually, quite a lot of praise. And you deserved it.its a major monument in forum history. Like, I get it. Every time I do something I'm proud of I expect it to change the world. I really do. I expect to get instantly famous. And it never happens. And I feel deflated. And I feel dejected. And I feel angry. But then I get a new idea and start the whole brutal process all over again. Pearls before swine. What you gunna do?
