That's the way I see this thingy, if this is what you were talking about. And if you were not, eh, whatever.
    i get this feeling as well. this is the first forum i have been on, so i am still getting used to how they work. but i guess i expected more back-and-forth conversation.

    i feel more like i am talking to no one - to a big empty room - rather than to myself, but i know what you mean. it sometimes does not feel like i am engaing anyone, or that no one is engaging me.
    do you think the size of the forum makes it difficult? do you think it is harder to get and give feedback when there are so many people in one thread?


    the idea of a new alien movie is pretty exciting to me. i really liked the first two movies. the second movie was so different from the first, but to me it felt similar to the first, just sort of bigger in scope. if they could go back to the feeling of the first two movies, i would be very happy.

    I get the feeling of talking to a big room also. This is the first forum I have been on too. There are times when there is back and forth conversation but due I guess, to time zones and lifestyles that doesn't happen so often.

    Unless someone asks a question or you have something to say it's hard to justify giving feedback in a thread. So many people in a thread does make it difficult I guess.

    All ways of giving feedback need to have some meaning attached to them on a forum. That is probably the root of it. You can't nod your head.

    I hope they go back to the feel of the first two movies. Jaws on a spaceship.

    I feel like that here but not IRL. Lack of interaction, I guess. It feels like talking in a huge room, but not an empty one - directing conversation "generally" towards a crowd of people busily engaged in their own specific conversations, and that's why a lot of the time I don't bother.

    I don't get it in real life either.

    In Japan they use the example of two people smacking an anvil as an example of a good conversation. Timing is important. I learnt somewhere that the best way to kill a conversation is to mess with the timing. I use it in my work sometimes, if the conversation goes on a little long I mess with the timing and the conversation usually seems to come to an end pretty quick.

    yes, i agree, i often don't bother when it seems like a group here is already well established and engaged in their own conversations. i like to think that if i was engaged in conversation here on the forum, and somebody joined in, that i would engage them. but i don't know?

    i guess maybe it is alright that people splinter into their own groups and conversations.
    maybe it is just important to cultivate your own conversations that you can participate in?

    that's interesting, because timing is pretty much nonexistant on a forum, right? i mean, how do you control timing on a forum?

    You can't. All you can do is put something out there and let go.
