    @josiah 😀 I think so. My fake laugh sounds a little more fake. But probably

    XD Hah, that’s cool. It’s pretty handy, although the email updates are of course the most vital.

    By the way, was the descision not to put how many posts people had next to them meant to make everyone more on an equal level and not have them try to post just to get a higher count? It seems to equal things out for me 🙂

    @sam-kowal Right now it’s a “we haven’t talked about if we should do rankings or not so we’re defaulting to nothing until we actually talk about it.” 😛 IMO, it’s a tricky balance since (a) it’s good to have some way of signaling who’s the most involved/helpful in a community, but (b) it’s not good to encourage aimless postings or spending too much time on a forum & not enough time actually writing.

    @josiah I remember you talking a little about that in the livestream, how people should be writing if they have limited time rather than posting… it is a tough balance. You definitely don’t want to spend all your time talking about writing but not writing. *wonders*

      @josiah HELLO and this is so exciting! You probably don’t remember me because I’m a newbie on Kingdom Pen and I’ve been neglecting it to attend to the Aetherlight forums. *awkward laugh* But I am SUU excited for the guilds!

      If anyone wonders, I guess I’m a Triceratops.

        Hi, Josiah.  You pick up other people’s laughing styles? That’s funny. I tend to do that too, to a small degree, not just laughs but gestures, facial expressions, even accents. The accent thing is the least subtle. I can watch an episode of a British show or even just read a book by a British author and unconsciously pick up an accent. It used to drive my family crazy but they’re used to it now… actually, it still drives them crazy.

          The only downside @cindy , is when people think I’m doing it on purpose but I’m unaware that I’m doing it all. 🙂 It’d be handy if I wanted to be an actress. I actually do like stage acting but I don’t get many opportunities in a rural area like mine.

          @sam-kowal Yep. It’s a tricky thing to balance. Probably not something we can ever perfect, but it is one of our goals to have this forum focused on education & accountability to avoid giving writers another distraction.


          @lady-iliara
          I think I somewhat-recognize you from the KP forum… Didn’t interact much, but I think our times crossed enough for me to at least recognize your username.


          @overcomer
          I wish I could do that with accents. I’ve wanted to do accents for F.O.R.E.V.E.R., but am never able to get it.

          @mariposa He thinks he’s a T-Rex. He’s probably not.
