Ok let us get forum started
Whisper your topic to me
And keep chit chat to low roar
Do we have a scribe ?

ruby~{Randolph}~t 19:46:15 pm CST

Master Zoran
at Your service

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 19:46:46 pm CST
thank you Brother

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 19:48:24 pm CST

Thank you ruby

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 19:51:09 pm CST
Topic
What can be done to make forum back to better discussions?

flicka {GS}~ fg. 19:54:51 pm CST

Master Zoran, flicka has been looking back over the old old old forums, the ones way back in 2000 and there were some really good topics. Perhaps we could revisit a few of those.

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 19:56:52 pm CST

nodding an excellent idea flicka

ruby~{Randolph}~t 19:57:00 pm CST
nods to mistress
Wwe also have discussed submitting topics to the Captains mail...perhaps that can be done, to be able to ponder a topic beforehand

flicka {GS}~ fg. 19:59:02 pm CST

Perhaps a two pronged approach. Discover some interesting topics from way back and submit them to the Captains for Their thoughts.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 19:59:21 pm CST

That is a good idea flika
Maybe we need to post topics on the corks and then people can think about them before forum

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:02:22 pm CST

As ruby said Master Zoran and Your thoughts on posting on the corks are grand ideas. Especially if a topic is a deep and meaningful one. Hmm like what denier of silk is the optimum for a slave to be wearing? Or indeed are silks necessary to be worn at all.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:03:51 pm CST

Laughs the less silks are better in my eye
Kissing mine

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 20:05:01 pm CST

nodding to my Brother certainly the thinner and more gossamer the better

natasha{Zoran}~t~ 20:05:55 pm CST

Grins and kisses my Master
Less silks, no winnings, my Master

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:06:36 pm CST

~laughing~ well that is one deep and meaningful topic out of the way.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:06:52 pm CST

I think all must understand this is a safe place to speak your mine
As long as you don't go personal

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:09:00 pm CST

chuckles
if ruby desired a safe place, she would not be on Gor - a slave is no stranger to fear in her belly

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:09:16 pm CST

Do any here feel it is not?

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:09:52 pm CST

Laughs that is true ruby
But you know what I mean

Kazar~infamous pirate.~{sei} 20:10:13 pm CST

Zoran itís always been safe here

Thadron - Slave Master of GS 20:10:39 pm CST

Takes my seat on the dais~ motioning my slave to my feet

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:10:44 pm CST

yes
Master Zoran..dark eyes twinkle with understanding

ayrie{Thadron} 20:10:47 pm CST

~lifts loving eyes to the door

Venator-Warrior 20:10:54 pm CST
Zoran, there are times when Forum is for lack of a better term Ďhi-jackedí by others.

It is counterproductive to interact at those times.

tamara{Kyoto} 20:11:39 pm CST

-quietly listening-

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:11:58 pm CST

Nods as brother Thardon enters
Kazar sometime I think some feel stacked her and they go seilent

Venator-Warrior 20:12:29 pm CST

tamara, unless otherwise encumbered, kneel at my feet.

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:12:49 pm CST

The frisson of fear is evidenced even in Forum, as a slave we must be careful of our words even in Forum. A Man may defend His words with sword or quiva, but as a slave never must we cause offense.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:12:55 pm CST
That is true Venator
I let my self get pulled in last week

ayrie{Thadron} 20:13:00 pm CST

~mocha hues dance with delight as do a crawling slaves hips as she crawls to His side, writhing into her kneel
Greetings my Master ~pressing a soft kiss to His leather clad thigh

tamara{Kyoto} 20:13:58 pm CST

-quiet breath, silently moving towards Master Venator and lowering to settle into a kneel-

Venator-Warrior 20:14:58 pm CST

Zoran, it happens, we get sucked into the vortex of the nightís squeaky wheel.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:15:27 pm CST

Laughs so true

Austin - Scholar- 20:16:40 pm CST

Chuckles and agrees with Venator

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:17:36 pm CST

So would everyone agree to a few topic to be picked early?

Austin - Scholar- 20:18:22 pm CST

Nods in agreement.. with Zoran

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:18:30 pm CST

Yes Master Zoran, flicka thinks it a good idea.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:18:55 pm CST

thumbs way up - indeed

Venator-Warrior 20:19:01 pm CST

Seems reasonable.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:19:07 pm CST

If you have idea send them to my email or Sandmans

Bretval {meral}: 20:19:11 pm CST

excellent idea

Thadron - Slave Master of GS 20:20:29 pm CST

Nods concurrence

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 20:20:48 pm CST

nodding in agreement

Master of one 20:22:02 pm CST

~smiles seeing Mine enter

{maddie}Mof1 20:22:04 pm CST

~slipping in silently, she treads upon hands and knees to her Owner's left before settling back upon heels with a glance up to His Blues in greetings and a smile offered to E/everyone in greetings~

Master of one 20:22:53 pm CST

To Me maddie... I seem to have trouble staying in place tonight

ayrie{Thadron} 20:23:45 pm CST

~nods in agreement

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:26:18 pm CST

Ok so by Thursday we will have a two topics on the corks

swtpea{Frederick} 20:26:30 pm CST
girl thinks she know why people don't speak up in forum and that's because whatever they say in some cases at least get swept under the rug as if it was never spoken so it keeps people from speaking out

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:26:57 pm CST
Master Zoran, a Captain will post the topics on the boards?

Venator-Warrior 20:28:51 pm CST

Nods at swtpea, agreed.

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:29:04 pm CST

Yes I do it
Flika

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:29:05 pm CST

swtpea
thinks you have a valid point lovely one

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:29:59 pm CST

Sweetpea in what way is not listen too
Please explain

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:30:57 pm CST

pea, in Forum all should be heard, not just heard but heeded. Mea culpa, flicka does tend to say far too much, will desist from now on.

Thadron - Slave Master of GS 20:31:33 pm CST

Listens to peas comment, intent on not sweeping it under the rug~. How can we keep this from happening?

ayrie{Thadron} 20:32:02 pm CST

respectfully, one has gained insight from Other's comments without posting a reply. So she would hope that if One has a right, please share it. You never know how far it will reach.

ayrie{Thadron} 20:32:38 pm CST

Right should be thought... Apologies for the beastly fingers

Bretval {meral}: 20:33:27 pm CST
More complex ideas can be lost in simpler ideas and the number or posts

Thadron - Slave Master of GS 20:34:25 pm CST
That is a good insight ayrie..... but one should get validation that their thoughts were at least heard

ayrie{Thadron} 20:35:17 pm CST
Yes Master

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:35:43 pm CST
Venator since you agree with sweetpea can you give example
My brother

Master of one 20:35:58 pm CST
Is it that you feel they werent heard pea or that they werent acted upon?

swtpea{Frederick} 20:36:10 pm CST

sometimes people dont speak up because they have in the past and whatever it may have been they said, was just over looked after it was talked about and it was as if it had never been said ,

swtpea{Frederick} 20:36:52 pm CST

in some cases Master of one both

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:37:42 pm CST
agrees with pea
a simple acknowledgment of ones thoughts would go a long way to rectify the issue

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:38:02 pm CST
So there is no action done from the words said
Is that what I am hereing as Master of One

Venator-Warrior 20:38:20 pm CST
Zoran, if we look back at prior Forums, 6-7 voices are the driving force. In my opinion, there is a reason why others do not speak up. Having had the experience personally, it does make One consider the value of Forum.

{maddie}Mof1 20:38:48 pm CST
~listens quietly~

Austin - Scholar- 20:38:49 pm CST
Just thinking maybe Brackground noise of some who want to make sure they are heard causes that.. feeling of not being heard..

Venator-Warrior 20:40:09 pm CST

Nods to Austin, I speak infrequently, but when I do....it matters to me.

Bretval {meral}: 20:40:15 pm CST
Euro Forum posts a summary of the discussion of each topic

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:40:47 pm CST

Hmmm I see what your both saying

Austin - Scholar- 20:41:09 pm CST
Nods to Bretval and that is always helpful

Looks to the floor

sura{Austin} 20:41:37 pm CST
-listens intently-

Master of one 20:43:23 pm CST
I think Wwe need to remember that not everything can be acted on....that the Captains decide in the end.... that being said I think there could be some acknowledgement that it was considered and decided that nothing would be done

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:43:52 pm CST

I think I will try to make sure hat everyone's ideas known
And to let all talk

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:44:22 pm CST
Well said One

Master of one 20:45:50 pm CST
Maybe even a personal explanation to the one who raised the issue explaining the decision even....if appropriate

Master of one 20:46:23 pm CST

~ grumbles at too many evens there

LionHeart of Old 20:46:49 pm CST
~having sat looks up~

Sometimes people feel if O/others do not echo them they are not heard

~a wry chuckle~ I have never had that problem -- I say what I think and let the chips fall

That said others also fear reprisals or cutting remarks here or in other places -- I have learned to ignore mostly that many have not

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:48:38 pm CST
Well said Lh
And yes I agree One that s a good idea

LionHeart of Old 20:48:41 pm CST

~looks to the FW and smiles gesturing to a sitting fur near Me~

Jarl Thorrn 20:49:56 pm CST

slips in and nods quietely tal to the Free and greetings to the slaves as i sit down on My chair

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 20:50:40 pm CST

I concur Brother

Zoran ~Captain~ Merchant 20:50:42 pm CST

I have business I have to attend as I turn the floor back to Sandman
We have topics for next forum
Thank you

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:50:42 pm CST

my Jarl has taught ruby the MUSE
M - manners
U - understanding
S - sympathy
E - empathy

using these tools of wisdom..goes a long way to have Aall feel included in discussions

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 20:51:28 pm CST

nodding I wish you well Brother

LionHeart of Old 20:51:45 pm CST
I am not going to speak for Myself right now, but I will advance the opinion of One Older than I -- one that I call Brother and in someways My "Father" on Gor

He would say that Gor is by design a meritocracy --- that all voices are not equal -- and it is the duty of a Gorean to make themselves heard or accept their place

If You all think I am a stubborn old Gorean -- Youwould not wish meet this One ~chuckles~

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 20:54:12 pm CST
chuckling.. LionHeart ,, we do our best to be worthy, but there is no question those than came before us were harder

LionHeart of Old 20:55:24 pm CST
My Friend and Brother can be quite a PIA, but Arman is older than I and knows Gor better than any living Man I know

Master of one 20:55:59 pm CST

I, for One, dont think that applies to Forum LH... I think its purpose is discussion and learning and not so much roleplay as in the rest of the site

Kahrianna (Northern & hot-headed) 20:56:23 pm CST

~Entered with a slight nod of a greeting to those within the room before eyes went to the familiar voice, narrowing a gaze toward LionHeart before a smile was shown... nodding more firmly then stepping toward the fur to settle upon it at his side, leaning over to whisper~

Having fun, dear?

flicka {GS}~ fg. 20:57:21 pm CST
Do things ever change?

flicka pulled up an old forum, one dated 1st April 2007 and the first thing she saw was:

"Marie 20:31:31 CST
I agree bahi...and we've had no leadership..*shrugs*...Even when the Men ARE here, the most r/p I see is them ordering a drink

bahi{RD} 20:32:21 CST
Master Zoran.. i came to GS over a year ago and for 3/4ths of that time it's been much like this.. will all sorts of good reasons given for how quiet it is.. when do people stop making excuses and see what's going on for what it is? neglect on the part of it's members"

And so even back then there was citicism of the Leadership, and a bemoaning of the lack of meaningful role playing

LionHeart of Old 20:58:08 pm CST

In some ways I agree with Your sentiment MO1, but in other ways not

In terms of right to speak I agree, but in terms of a "way" of speaking Gor must be brought to life in Our words and way of being even here

LionHeart of Old 20:59:39 pm CST

I am a Lion

~grins~

Deer are dinner ~chuckles~

ruby~{Randolph}~t 20:59:56 pm CST
indeed mistress
girl has also reviewed the old scrolls

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 21:00:21 pm CST

thank you flicka ,, we have always had complaining, but the truth is rp isn't something directed by the leadership,, but comes from the action or lack of action to rp of each one here

Master of one 21:00:52 pm CST

I think basic tenets can be maintained here while having open discussion and learning by and from Aall

{maddie}Mof1 21:01:51 pm CST

~thinking back on all of the scrolls, she whispers to mistress~

hence why this one has always suggested training should include the past scrolls...much to be remembered...learned...

~sifting a bit on heels~

Bretval {meral}: 21:02:17 pm CST
Agreed, Sandman ... Aall the members create the poleplay... it is not just the Leadders

LionHeart of Old 21:04:04 pm CST
It is as I said hard for some to speak who fear "the crowd" -- here and even at My home site I have many in My ears in whispers that agree with Me in many things I say, but would never dream of speaking as fear "the crowd" ~shrugs~

I do not say this because I crave theor support, but indeed understand their fear as they are not as strong (read old and stubborn) as I

Austin - Scholar- 21:04:10 pm CST
LOL just remember LH.. deer may be dinner but there always is a Hunter gaming to tag a Lion.. Chuckles

flicka {GS}~ fg. 21:04:35 pm CST
~nodding toward Master Sandman.~

This girl does agree with Master of one and others, in that if an issue is raised and it is something that the Captains say They will address, then at a later forum a short appraisal of the outcome would be good.

A girl is aware that life outside of Gor intrudes upon us all.

Kahrianna (Northern & hot-headed) 21:06:03 pm CST

~chuckles and nudges him~ Always a smartarse, LH.

LionHeart of Old 21:06:24 pm CST
I have lived through the Wolves once marking Me for death -- now I have peace with them, but there are no fiercer hunters than they ~grins at Austin~

Jarl Thorrn 21:06:34 pm CST

some complaints never change - good to see that the place is still the good ole same *chuckles*

flicka {GS}~ fg. 21:06:34 pm CST

maddie ~hugging you~ aye, there is much wisdom in the past. Thank goodness we still have all of our old forums and in an accessible place due to your aptitude at computer stuff.

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 21:06:43 pm CST

I agree flicka

{maddie}Mof1 21:08:53 pm CST

~whispers low to mistress, thinking she needs to beg my Master for extra tastas for the flickering beauty~

that is overly kind of you, mistress, girl didn't mean to point out her own work, just the wisdom learned from the past...sorry if is appeared otherwise...

{maddie}Mof1 21:10:03 pm CST
~blushes deep crimson and whispers~

slut is most grateful, Master Sandman...

OriginalSandman_Builder/ Sr. Captain of GS 21:14:36 pm CST

folks does anyone have more to say?

flicka {GS}~ fg. 21:15:00 pm CST
maddie you did not mention it, flicka did. There are times when the work that is done to further our home is done without fanfare.

The Captains in Their governance, Their steady hands at the helm.

The slaves who week after week scribe where necessary.

The Masters and slaves Who support the various events and role play in the Home.

It is all of these that have made Gorean Shores still in existence when so many other Gorean Homes have fallen into disrepair.

Thadron - Slave Master of GS 21:15:04 pm CST
