Perhaps, the larger reason why discussions become lackluster, too much gets lost in translation in posting even well-thought out written content (well-thought out written content also piques the interests of a reasonable range of WP constituency).

If written content is unable to "break the ice" so to speak, lets reconsider video clips - that is video clips which might best pique interest towards taking those challenging steps to encourage social skills beyond small talk!

The discussion thread in the 'Social Skills and Making Friends' Forum 'Call For Video Clips To Encourage Social Skills!' goes into further details.


Oh, okay.

I don't really post much in that sub-forum as I automatically just have an implicit understanding that people don't like me. But I shall do that.

Actually, I don't see evidence that anybody dislikes Blitzkrieg.

Funeralxempire does not like me. That is at least one person.

Um, and a lot of other people are 'on the fence' about me.

But thank you, KraftieKortie. I know that we are on good terms.

Funeral is set in his beliefs. I don't believe in some of them. And he can get rather abrasive with those who disagree with him. Though he's almost always respectful.

Actually, in truth, I don't believe he dislikes anybody.

Oh, that is an interesting perspective. I won't know him as much as you do, so I shall take your word for it, Kraftie.

I've disagreed with you, I'm not sure that means I dislike you. It's rare for me to actually dislike someone on here, I don't let disagreements on here entirely cloud my perceptions of people and it's not uncommon for me to speak in the defence of people I've previously disagreed with if I feel they've been mischaracterized, even when that means calling out posters I quite like and mostly agree with.

Oh, okay. Fair enough. That makes me feel better. :)

In actuality, I don't believe independent folks are ignored here in WP. But that's just my opinion.

Anyway....if we want to be a support forum, we should focus on those who want to be independent, but have trouble doing so.

Best to refer to the WP discussion thread 'Call For Video Clips To Encourage Social Skills!' -- to "break the ice" in meeting challenges to boost social skills beyond small talk!
