His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
I think part of the problem with any community that's been around for long enough is that topics dry up because everybody knows everybody. It doesn't really matter what the topic is after a while, you get a feel for who's going to respond and why they're going to respond. The talking point issue can be circumvented in physical presence aka people hanging out and doing shit together but not neccessarily talking. With the shiternet being what it is, it'll always burn out like this. I've seen it happen on many smaller sites over time unless there was some bigger binding force at large.

Plus nobody has done anything with their lives the past six years so nothing has entered the ecosystem

We're like a time capsule
tbh I've just stopped posting about that stuff. I've never been comfortable with providing details about myself that would make it easier to dox, but eventually I realized that I don't see much of a point in really bringing up anything about myself unless it actually adds to a discussion in some way. While I don't see anybody using that stuff maliciously anyway, this forum has a weird way of turning events/issues in peoples lives into centerpiece discussions that never really die. Like Nuka said, there isn't a good history there and it's not surprising that that was the first of the last three pillars to die (the other two being megathreads and "sep7agon is dying/dead" threads).

Seems like we're just hanging on to the memories we've made here for the sake of nostalgia

When a group starts running out of new material to talk about, nostalgic discussion becomes de facto conversation; and when people stop visiting (or banned, when that mattered) new material comes much more rarely. It's a sad, vicious, decrementing cycle.

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.
I've been stubborn about not posting in them since basically they started being a thing, but now it's to the point where I can't really talk about Halo unless I post in it.
Most of the Halo thread is just people sharing clips or complaining about 343 anyway. You're not really missing much.

I get most of my Halo talk in discords like Halopedia now
I actually do keep up with reading it, even liking posts sometimes. I'm just stubborn and autistic about it for some reason.

I'm not really sure why at this point, it's like a leftover stubborn hangup from when I and this forum were still active. I didn't like seeing threads that never died in my Updated Topics list or something, since it was basically my default landing page.

Whenever I swing by here I find I typically either don’t find anything interesting, or someone’s already said more or less what I had to say, or type out some agrammatic, rambling screed that I just delete anyway. If I’m here for longer than ten minutes, the third option is probably in play.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Covid is working miracles. Who will return next?

In other words we should less talk and more make Sep7agon babies.

If I'm not here, I'm doing photography. Or I'm asleep. Or in lockdown. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is just normal.
I like to think that everyone who isn't active just got busy with their lives positively.

Or at least, the saner stable ones.

Flee streams (and occasionally pops in), MetaCog went to uni (and America?), Ender protests civil rights, Naru is astrophysic'ing, Death is/was missioning... these are just the ones I remember, but I wonder what a lot of us are doing.

Just some late night thoughts
