    How close-knit is this forum?

    Post by User1 on Sun Apr 28, 2013 4:53 pm

    As much as I know the remaining constant members are most likely on friendly terms with one another, I thought about something else. How many of us are actually close friends, and not just acquaintances/friends? By that, I mean do you talk to each other frequently off-forum, or perhaps plan things to do with one another? And do you entrust confidential information with them?

    I shall not delve into who is friendly with who, but it was just a random thought that came into my head, the big question being; How close-knit are we, and how many of us are close friends with one another? (Once again, not looking for names.)

    I try to talk with as many Forumnites outside the Forum as I can, so I do do that. I would also like to plan things but it's hard sometimes when you live thousands of miles away. :|

    It could be online activities, but there was no barring of real life ones. Just saiyan, even if you didn't make a point against it. big grin

    What, by asking this question?

    Nothing, I just thought of the idea while thinking about the day, and decided to project one of the questions that came up here, I dunno why.

    No, when you mentioned "online activities" I was asking what specifically you meant by that. I assume you mean non-Dark Souks related stuff?

    Aah, forgive me, that is a case of misinterpretation, one of which happens a lot.

    Yes, but that does not exactly exclude Dark Souls, however, that is the main idea behind that. You could arrange something like a co-op run for Dark Souls, or do something away from the series, such as organise a multiplayer session of something like Red Dead, anything along those lines.

    Well, there's a couple of the guys on the forum that i Skype with frequently, we normally talk about things ranging from History, politics, our personal lives, and of course, dark souls. Honestly though if i knew more peoples Skype accounts, i would talk with more people on the forums, most of y'all on here are pretty interesting.

    Considering a good number of people on my friend list are from here I should try more non-Dark Souls games.

    Now, as to my position to my own question, I have 2 people who I classify as close friends on the forums. We have shared confidential information with each other, we talk to each other pretty frequently, and sometimes do things together online, if it can be helped. I'm not sure about their standing with each other, but I think they're fine with each other.

    They know who they are, and I don't know if anyone else classifies me as a friend of theirs, but would prefer to know if they do.

    I've got 3 or 4 people on my friends list but never actually spoken outside of the forum.I have met a couple of other people in random invasions though,kinda cool to see them stomp some gankers before I have even made it over from the spawn.

    I have multiple friends from the forum - we frequently converse and confide information in each other or just generally do things.

    I've been taking some time to think of a proper answer, so here goes.

    It may sometimes take long to actually become my friend. Especially online. I rarely trust people, and being that we're on the internet where most people are anonymous, I trust people even less. I'm very paranoid, and i suspect everyone to betray me and go behind my back at any time. So i wouldn't say anyone is a close friend to me. Being considered a close friend to me would require that we've met atleast once, possibly atleast once a year even to build up trust. Even then, i hardly trust people.

    Also, as a close friend you don't get the "perk" of knowing about my personal life, because that's already available to anyone. Except for of course, my personal information and disturbing questions that should never be asked...

    What i've said doesn't really answer the question though, so here it is; I've got 9 people on my friendlist, and 2 people on my foe list on this forum. There are some people that i dislike, and i wouldn't mind telling the person i dislike, if they were to ask. I wouldn't share such information with anyone other than the person in question though. As for friends, i think i can say that only 2 people, just like Para, has gotten close enough to me to even deserve the "friend stamp".

    Even though only 2 people have gotten close enough so far, it doesn't mean i don't like other people here, because we have some amazing people here. Some who i would even hug if i met in real life, even though i don't actually consider them friends. What some people have said in the let it out thread proves that not all humans are bad, which i tend to forget. There are of course also people here that i would just give a big slap across the face.
