Unhappy nothing to say...

I am on the forums a lot and post a lot, but i never feel like i have anything meaningful to say that contributes to the discussion. I want to say something meaningful or imaginative, but everything i say seems to just be copying someone else or agreeing with them.

i also feel depressed about not being as devoted to AVATAR as some other people, even though i have changed my faith because of it...


I don't know, i just needed to say it to someone

You changed your faith because of Avatar??


...Woah man, I just... that's devotion right there. I'd never do that. But I do see your point. I don't ever get the biggest amount of posts or take part in posting "I agree" posts, just because I only post when I think it's necessary to contribute. You seem to be doing the same thing and I admire that. Many people here have a large post count pretty much because they take part in the forum games, or they post their mind on things, not caring if it's already been said, just to show that they believe a certain thing, and that's absolutely fine.

You aren't alone in this, I felt this way for a while too, but it isn't really the number of posts you make, it's the contribution you give to the community with what you do write. Being the biggest poster on any forum doesn't necessarily mean that you're a bigger fan than anyone else, and being the lowest poster doesn't mean you're the least-devoted. (Now I KNOW Human No More is lurking around somewhere... )

I know what you are saying, and I will say that I am guilty of playing forum games and posting that I agree. But when I post that I agree with someone, I try and add some more info, elaborate on the topic.

But, if you don't think that you have anything to contribute, just post the first constructive thing that pops into your head about the subject. That is what I do and it works for me.

Stating your mind is never copying. Everybody has a different spin on things and commenting on a topic that has already been raised is not necessarily a bad thing.

Also as Woodsprite said, it's not the number of posts, it's what they contain that matters.

If you have something to say, say it! Just because everyone agrees with what you said (which isn't always the case) doesn't mean it wasn't worth saying.

Sounds like you need to play MORE "Ban the user above you"
The game is designed for times when you have nothing to say!

Listen mate, it's alright not to be as devoted to Avatar as some users. Good or bad, we all behave differently and to be honest I really like the people who support other people's ideas. When someone says to me that "that was a pretty clever idea" it really makes me feel like I matter. So don't worry if your not the thread starter.

Also could you elaborate on your "faith change"?

I could be talking about some wisdom, but I don't mean to shove knowledge down anyone's throats. If I am loose, you will get more advice than you actually wanted to hear.

Sometimes I explain things where there not needed. That's my weakness :\.

There's no wrong way to participate on a forum as long as you are respectful. My post counts on every forum I've ever been on have always been lower than average. I love this community more than any I have ever been a part of, yet I still do not rack up posts. It's just not my style.

Well, as someone who always states his mind and plays a lot of forum games, I'd say that you don't need to always have something huge to contribute... Even just offering your thoughts on a thread, as short as they may be, is contributing...

You don't always have to post a profound statement, etc. Just speak what is on your mind. I don't always have something to say. Sometimes it isn't Avatar related, sometimes it is. I find myself on the General discussion board or the debate one. Sometimes I play the forum games. Just do what you wish. The other day I had to vent so I did and it helped me to get better. Other days, I'm helping others on here . We are family. Families don't always have stuff to say to each other .

There is no pressing need for you to contribute here, the mere fact that you are present speaks volumes
Now, you may not have posted anything that stirs up serious debate or gets loads of comments but that doesn't matter. All that matters is that you are here to appreciate Avatar and who cares how committed you are as a fan? Just appreciate it as it comes naturally. That is how it should be appreciated, because if you try to be falsely appreciative, then your true feelings for it will be drowned by fake feelings.

Also, I like how you put your Home as Terra, I'm gonna start doing that for everything too. I like the word Terra and terran better than Earth and..... what is the world for someone from Earth?
