Default 'Keeping the feeling alive'? Here's how.

Don't forget, but don't wish for the past.

This is a little long, but everyone should read it.

<TireaAean> blah. I'm bored sittin TS3 alone... MAN Where did the goodol days go where it was populated at this time every single day?
* TireaAean wants to time travel 2 years ago
* Unknown never experienced those particular good ol' days
<TireaAean> *1 year ago
<TireaAean> Unknown, for that you are deprived of the epic experience.
<TireaAean> well, it wasn't really epic, but it was fun, entertaining, and... timekilling
<Unknown> I suppose.
<TireaAean> I wanna go back to Jan 2010
<TireaAean> so much hype, enthusiasm, activity
* Moco wants to just have been around here during that time
<TireaAean> [in LN, particularly in the TS server]
<Moco> or around whatever existed >.> i'm not too solid on the timeline
<@Tymian|atWork> bbl
* @Tymian|atWork (~Tymian@privatehost-7842A61A.ww.wzieu.pl-studia-szczecin-nat1.wzieu.net) has left #TreeOfSouls
<TireaAean> I will never forget the life and history of LN as it was told me by the forefathers
<TireaAean> ;D
<~HumanNoMore>
<~HumanNoMore> you can't go back...
<~HumanNoMore> all you can do is keep it alive
<TireaAean> there was supposed to be a community-made documentary released last year for the anniversary.
<~HumanNoMore> I learned that with ToS a long time ago
<TireaAean> see, you go around now
<TireaAean> ask about avatar,
<Moco> TireaAean: i think i was interviewed for that :s
<~HumanNoMore> I proposed an Avatar meetup around April last year.
* Bowman (~Dave@Discovery.vhost) Quit (Ping timeout)
<TireaAean> no one knows what you are even talking about.
<~HumanNoMore> not much came of it
<Moco> at the meetup? something, i was interviewed for
<~HumanNoMore> TireaAean, really? I've found the opposite
<&Eltu> Indeed... I
<&Eltu> @hnm
<~HumanNoMore> randoms recognise my tattoo
<~HumanNoMore> they say Avatar
<&Eltu> I wouldn't want to go back. It was a beautiful moment of my life, but I have so much more today.
<&Eltu> All the experiences...
<TireaAean> I think that since it's old now, the hype is gone, no one cares
<Unknown> Absolutely what Eltu said...
<TireaAean> MANY PEOPLE still don't know that there will be a trilogy.
<~HumanNoMore> even if randoms don't perhaps keep it as the same special thing as us, the vast majority of people, like it
<~HumanNoMore> 99.8%
<Moco> ^around here for sure
<Unknown> It was a huge part of my life, but times have moved on...
<~HumanNoMore> TireaAean, lok at AF - some people even don't know about the language being a full language
<TireaAean> Unknown, GASP.
<TireaAean>
<~HumanNoMore> Avatar is still one of VERY few things I care about
<TireaAean> HumanNoMore, YES
<TireaAean> Far LESS people realize that than that there will be a sequel...
<TireaAean> O_O
<~HumanNoMore> Avatar, ToS, the people here, music and myself
<TireaAean> heh
<&Eltu> And today, life is more beautiful than ever before.
<~HumanNoMore> and maybe my afk family
<TireaAean> LOL afk family
<~HumanNoMore> those are the only things I honestly care about
<~HumanNoMore> you can't go back, but there's no reason to think it will disappear
<TireaAean> it has begun.
<~HumanNoMore> over time, we just find out who really cares.
<TireaAean> I Sure hope that the sequels will live up to the rumour that they will rekindle the fire...
<~HumanNoMore> we find out more about ourselves, in a way
<Moco> i don't really know what would be so great about going back
<TireaAean> it would sure suck to find that the absolute core of like 8 people will remain after the third movie releases.
<Moco> except for me at least, being on a forum :p
<~HumanNoMore> and some people get left at the wayside, but there's not even a reason to think they have forgotten it
<~HumanNoMore> they just don't go to forums as much
<Unknown> I honestly don't care if the sequels rekindle the fire or not... I'm just glad that Avatar changed my life the way it did.
<TireaAean>
<~HumanNoMore> heh, well, ToS is still gaining members, and from what I've seen, LN is too
<TireaAean> Well, I don't like how it changed mine :
<TireaAean> I failed and dropped courses, causing my GPA to plunge
<~HumanNoMore> even some who have only first seen Avatar recently
<~HumanNoMore> TireaAean, I very nearly failed university completely
<~HumanNoMore> but I don't care.
<TireaAean> all dat money
<~HumanNoMore> because Avatar showed me something that mattered more.
<TireaAean> hmmmm
<~HumanNoMore> it's the only time I've had something that can inspire me.
<TireaAean> if only it were as simple as just moving out to a jungle and starting a tribe or something.
<~HumanNoMore> before, I was just drifting without any idea
<~HumanNoMore> lol, definitely not
<TireaAean> oh. people have been trying to do that for two years.
<~HumanNoMore> I don't want to lose what I have
<TireaAean> and I havent heard of them actually doing it.
<~HumanNoMore> I mean, that Avatar is the first time I've even had real friends
<~HumanNoMore> the people here
<TireaAean> awwww.
<~HumanNoMore> Avatar is an escape from depressing life.
<TireaAean> yeah, actually, I have seen several relationships start as a result of these forums.
<~HumanNoMore> ^^
<TireaAean> people living with each other and stuff.
<Moco> 08:31 HumanNoMore it's the only time I've had something that can inspire me. | ever? :p
<~HumanNoMore> I'm not quite at that stage yet, but indeed
* DavyJones (~DavyJones@privatehost-8D1063BA.cust.tele2.se) has joined #TreeOfSouls
* ChanServ sets mode: +o DavyJones
<~Neytiri> Zola'u niprrte' ma DavyJones, oel ngati kameie. Ngaru lu fpom srak?
<~HumanNoMore> and without Avatar, we'd never have met
<~HumanNoMore> so that's another reason I think that it doesn't even matter if some people do go quiet over time
<~HumanNoMore> the effect Avatar has is not something that will disappear
<~HumanNoMore> it's something that goes beyond any simple description
<~HumanNoMore> so remember people who are quiet now, but don't wish for the past, because there's a future, and it is just as much Avatar

I don't need to say any more.

We can't forget who we've become.

In short, "think about the future"?

Maybe we could merge all the keeping alive threads instead of having 3-4 separate ones?

The future looks good. I can't wait for it. It is also good, as mentioned here to remember where we came from. Although with the thread I put up I'm also looking for some other easy and practical ways to keep the feeling alive in the present moment as well.

Actually, I think if we put all the threads together then we'd have this super effective thread that can help everyone.

^ True, it would be a lot easier for everyone to find it and moderate it.

This is something completely different. There's a reason I didn't post it as a reply.

True it is different in a way but it's still a way to "keep the feeling alive" right?

hmm I don't know if it will be one superlong thread?

I guess this issue of keeping the feeling alive raises from time to time so maybe it's right if the new threads on the subject appear as the time goes?

(Me, I needed "a boost of faith" to revive the feeling precisely at the moment when I got to this thread- so imho it appeared at the right time & it's good if this kind of thread is created later on, too - to keep the hand on the pulse so to speak...)
