I've kinda sorta completely forgot how to interact with people outside of my very limited friend-groups.

I understand that there's a bit of effort one has to put in to have good interactions with people and make new friends/acquaintances and part of this effort requires making "posts" in "threads" where you "talk" to "people" about "things" and "interests". But there's a bit of an issue with that.

I don't really know how to do that? Whenever I try I usually get a few back and forths here and there and then suddenly I'm at a complete loss for what to say next and the next thing I know the interaction is over.

Anyways, all that's just to say that I'm here to try and make an attempt at conversing with people here like I used to in years gone by (waaay gone by at this point).

That said, I am, once again, at a loss for what to even talk to people about. I remember back in my hayday posting here I would make a sort of general-interest conversation thread just about every day. Now, I don't really want to redo that exactly again because things move a lot slower now than they once did, but I guess what I'm trying to say is, that's what this thread is for?

Not even really sure if people will post in it given it's general lack of direction, so I'll be around in other threads as well, but I figure I'll just put this out and cross my fingers that it gets some traction. I guess if you need something to talk about we can always start with discussions about "the old days" but that's up to you guys.

See you in it, I guess!

I've come to learn that conversation on message boards just, dies sometimes. You shouldn't think to deeply about it. Every now and then, you catch one that engaging to ridiculous levels, and you end up staying up way too late and you dont have time to make breakfast in the morning before work because that snooze button feels so good, and other times it just end with "hm" haha.

I guess you have to wade through the forgettable ones to get to the memorable ones. I bet what your remebering from times past are the ones worth remembering, and not the twice as many that weren't.

What are you up to tonight?

>>42140503
I normally wouldn't think too much about it, or at least not chalk it up to me being bad at talking to people, if it were not for the fact that this is the case with just about everything. Imageboard, chat site, Discord conversation, etc. I just can't for the life of me figure out how to keep a conversation going.

In times past most of the conversations I had didn't really NEED to be super engaging with each individual person because there were just so many people around to talk to that when one conversation failed to get traction another one or two would already be underway. The only issue was keeping track and not making anyone feel left out too much.

Anyways, plans for tonight are the same as any other night since the Quarantine began: sit on the computer at home talking to the few people around to talk and watching youtube or TV while doing so.

I've recently been watching through the HBO show Veep, and it's really good and funny. Before that I watched HBO's Watchmen and rewatched Community.

I think more than having one big long conversation with a person what it takes is just a lot of little socialization to get to know and trust each other.

That's a really good take on it. Long conversations can come after putting in the time for little socialization.

I suppose i suffer from the same thing. As i get older and more distracted, i think my ability to have never ending convos with people wanes.

One of the reasons being, i cant keep up with media anymore haha, i haven't seen any of those shows tbh.

But sitting at a computer and watching youtube, i know all about that haha. Whats the best video youve sen tonight?

Also, do you know how long your lockdown will last? We just started opening back up non essentials today.

>>42140512
I've never really had the ability to do it. It would happen, sure, but it was more up to chance I guess. They probably just FELT longer because of the afforementioned multiple conversations at once.

Well in the case of Veep and Community neither of those shows are very new. Community went from 2009 to 2015 while Veep was 2011 to 2019. Watchmen was a 2019 only series, though.

Earlier I was watching some of this sketch comedy channel called Cherdleys. They have some really good videos, specifically my favorite one is called "Taking Out The Trash" or something like that.

My lockdown lasts for as long as until the government opens up the state completely and I have to return to work. My manager is allowing me to stay off until either that happens or I feel comfortable returning. Suffice it to say, I have not reached the point where I feel comfortable putting myself or others at risk simply to do a job that I'm not even needed at.

Or until I need more money.

I think i got rid of cable in 2010, so im pretty out of the loop.
I have rabbit ears, but hardly use them.

Do they not have a phased reopening plan where you are? Are you getting UI?

I think the world got rid of cable around then, too. So much streaming!

I'm not aware of any plans to reopen. And I tried getting UI but it hasn't gone through yet and the call center is too busy so I can't call and try to get it fixed or explained. I filed before the whole Pandemic Relief Unemployment thing went through so I filed normal UI. Now they have the pandemic thing and I can't change it without calling.

So I'm basically stuck.

It took about a month and 40 phone calls for me to get mine. I started a new job before i even got it haha.
I got the normal UI and the 600 and i filed in march, before the relief thing happened, so you might get it automatically.

Well I meant my situation probably doesn't afford me normal UI, otherwise I would have gotten something by now.

But I don't know. Which makes it REALLY fucking annoying that I can't get anyone on the goddamn phone so I can figure it out. Literally any information on my situation would be nice.

I just spent a couple hours working on a custom world state for the Dragon Age games and now I'm trying to get mods to work with Dragon Age Inquisition.

Basically just going through the events of the first two games and choosing what happened in them so when you actually play Inquisition it's just like you played the first two games, without actually having to do that.

It's also for if you actually played the games beforehand and you want your choices in them to actually matter rather than just using whatever defaults the game decides to go with.

Something else is that I don't like making threads. I don't think I've ever actually made a thread the entire time I've been posting.

So like if I wanna chat about games or something I normally either wait for a thread that would be conducive for me to do that or message someone in private.
I don't like messaging people though because I feel like I'm forcing myself onto them.

You're not alone in that, most people I know have never made a thread. Me, I've always had a hard time just inserting myself into conversations, as stated in the OP, so I've made quite a few threads.

And yeah, I also don't like messaging people one on one. I don't really know why, but I always feel super uncomfortable unless I'm talking in a public place, even with my girlfriends and friends I've had for years.

I wasn't even involved in the drama but a large part of why I "left" (obviously I'm back now) was because of it.

I'm honestly only back because for some reason everywhere else I usually go to is dead the majority of the day and I don't have anything to do all day. Even here is pretty dead. Plus I was hoping that maybe things around here had changed. It has, somewhat, though a lot of the issues I had still seem to be a thing, but at least the people I didn't like seem to be gone.

Honestly? Good. The whole concept of bronies was a mistake from the fucking start if you ask me. Sure the show was good ENOUGH, but jesus. I only made it to part of the third season before dropping it.

Yeah, I'm sure it would. But if anyone even brought up the IDEA of rebranding the place, someone like Ember would throw a hissy fit and plunge the site into madness again.

It's probably best to keep it like it is and watch it slowly die. It's got a pretty good vibe to it now and I'd hate to see it go back to the way it was before.

No he posts all over the place. Though I'm assuming that if you aren't familiar with him it means he's stopped posting as much because he is very memorable and not really in a good way most of the time.

Which, I mean, makes perfect sense that he basically doesn't post and then the one time he does it's to complain about something.

You know, I've literally never experienced any website have so much of an issue with it's staff doing things other than this one. Pretty much every change I've been around for on this website has been attacked incessantly by people.

I mean he wasn't a mod. For personal reasons he stopped being a mod. It's not like Ponychan has EVER listened to the people yelling and whining about people being made mods. They stay on as mods until they're either removed for reasons unrelated to whinging or they quit themselves.

Also the mod/admin list hasn't even been updated since Mikie originally took over the website and beyond that I don't think it's actually been accurate in terms of what people have stopped being active. Whelp, Fen, and TPWPF barely come around at all much less in an official capacity as moderators.

At least we know a few people who were at one point moderators.

Zeke, Dom, Starshine, and Toybox are the only people on the list currently that are in any way active.

Honestly it's not like anyone looks at it anyways so who cares but it really is just another sign of how far this site has fallen in terms about who cares about looking like a living website. We're not getting anyone new anyways so why bother.

Not true. The list added Starshine, Whelp, and Toybox, and also added and removed Chewy.

EDIT: I mean to say that all of those changes to the list happened way after Mikie took over. I thought that was implied at first but I'm just making sure.

As long as someone keeps paying for it's hosting and at least two people are around to bother each other about things, the site always has a chance of coming back.

I've been trying to call IRL friends a bit more. Typically I would never actually just call someone, usually just texts to make plans.

Calling them just to talk on the phone just to catch up so far has been working pretty well. People at first are like "whoa why are you calling me is it an emergency?" but then after that it's usually kinda nice. I think people had appreciated it, knowing I was thinking about em and wanted to talk and not just send a text. Little more traditional heh.

Well you know, some of thats probably from not doing it a lot.

Hanging out with people irl doesn't have to even be more complicated then doing different things but in the same room together.

But it can also be going out and doing new things together, I could teach you how to dance for instance~

Yeah, that's true. That is my preferred way of hanging out.

I'm not really a fan of doing new things. Anything I'm interested in doing I already do so I don't really have much desire, if any, to do new things.

I don't trust like that.

I'm a closeted trans person, I can't let people know things about me because it's all gated off behind that information. Everything else is just a sham, basically a character I play.

It makes it difficult to actually be friends with people.

Also I don't like doing things, as I mentioned before in the thread, so that also gets in the way.

Ohh. I guess bein trans might make it different, I dunno. Figure people who were okay with it wouldn't mind getting to know you, as well as vice versa. But guess I could understand being hesitant.

Don't have to really do anything though. Like you eat and other people eat can be simple as eating together, if you were comfortable enough to do so.

Well I can't be out to other people if I'm not out to my family. Too many opportunities for things to go wrong.

I don't think I know anyone that would really be understanding. Not that they would be outright against it, but not understanding is barely any better. I don't want things to be awkward, otherwise I would be out. Some day I'll be in a better situation where the awkwardness wouldn't be a constant thing like it would be if I was out while living with my parents, and at that point I'll be more open to making real life friends with people I work with.
