What will it take to get y'all involved?

Big time lurker here.  Why?

Who the hell knows.  There are such big egos on BGG that think they are so high and mighty that there way is the right way.  I recently saw a video on 2d6.org with UndeadViking (Lance) and Scott Nicholson.  Big names from a board gaming review perspective.  While Lance was elated and showed some sort of reverence, you could tell he was uncomfortable with some of Scott's "attitude" towards gaming.  Look, if you like something play the damn thing and forget about what other people think.  This is the one thing I have difficulty with and that I need to work on.  I need to adopt that "who gives a rats ass" attitude.  People tell me "wow, you are way too nice of a guy" - that's my problem.

Don't agree with these huge egos?  They will tell you to use the **** door.

I'm tired of that.  I'm tired of not being able to say what is on my mind and have some sort of sensible reply.  Instead I usually get:

1.  You must be on something or drunk.
2.  You must be ignorant.
3.  You are in the minority - so back off while the majority rules.

Enrico - I liked your videos from the start because it didn't conform to the rules.  It gave me hope that we all can have a say, even if I disagree with you.

FYI:  It's way past my bedtime - shouldn't post after a few whiskey's (note I didn't say "drunk") but there you go.

I've got one of them big egos though.

I'd definitely go toe-to-toe with Scott or anyone about what I think.

When Mark Herman brought up my scale vs. scope rant on GD&B, I was sure
we were going to be going at it tooth and nail. Turns out we largely agreed though.

Mark's done so much though, he doesn't need an ego.

I am a lurker by nature. I figure that someone has already said what I would say, why say it again?

To keep the site going.

To be honest, nearly everything has been said before. Fora wouldn't exist if everyone
thought that way. Yet, not everyone has been exposed to what is said. Nor has a
particular community had every conversation - and slight perturbations in a discussion
can have different effects on people.

Saying things that aren't all that original is what a forum is all about.

MOAR!

Post. Good things happen with just one post.
Okay, maybe not that good - but it doesn't take any effort.

When I read Herr Doctor's description of the various segments on the episode and saw "Calandale's scale v. Scope rant" I was expecting a show stopping rant by you on air. I was somewhat disappointed when i found out it was a discussion of a vidded solo rant.  Smiley

I think the next segment just had Mark, or at least the description kind of read that way. So I thought maybe you had to be asked to leave/hang up.

We have 430 lurkers at this very moment. That is incredible.

Folks, jump in and have some fun, we can get a bit noisy in here but there is nothing like the fresh air of freedom.

Enjoy!
