The Quiet Few

Postby Burberry Knight » Mon May 16, 2016 10:28 pm

I'm not altogether too sure what my concentrated motive is here, I think it's mostly as a thank you from users like myself who aren't particularly vocal for most topics, be it: politics, games, movies, music, whatever really. It's also an assumption that I'm not alone in this train of thought!

I often find that there is a user who basically mirrors my thoughts on this forum, and that is such an amazing thing. Genuinely. Seems to be a total bizarre occurrence on internet forums.

I don't post all too often, but rest assured, I read. I read this forum daily. I've had the good fortune to meet Snowy before one of my favourite ever gigs, I've conversed with forumites through this very site or through origin/steam for some gaming purposes, and I can honestly say that it's the nicest group of online people that I've had the pleasure of chatting with.

I realise how much of a kiss-ass thread this comes across as, but I genuinely enjoy the daily musings of the more active users here and long may it continue.

Cheers, guys.

Was also good to meet up with you mate, even if it was a brief hello. Next time you are gigging in London (or if I ever venture to Scotland and there is a gig in the offing) be good to grab maybe 2 pints! :)

I think you echo the thoughts of a lot of us. I read a lot more than I post and I post a fair bit, but PW has always been the nicest corner of the internet for my money, and I look on everyone here as a mate even though most of us haven't met.

I have to say, I do find the silence of the current PW disturbing. It's preferable to the constant arguments of former days (of which I am as much to blame for as any of the other characters), but I miss the days when there was always something going on!

So, thank YOU for at least making us aware that all the crap I write is actually being read by somebody. :wink:

For sure, Snowy, no doubt some amazing London shows will crop up at some point. Still gutted that I couldn't get tickets for the RAH DTP show.

It's a natural part of the day just lurking. It really came to a head when the site went down for a while. That was scary. That really brought home how often I come here.

Just noticed my signature needs updating. Can't remember the last time I played Planetside 2.
Aha. 30th December 2015 and that was probably just to try out some VR mod.

No you!

and to be on topic - Yeah it's a bit quieter but I think the conversation flows pretty easily and everyone has a chance to talk about stuff they like and find a few other who do the same. Yeah there's the odd flashpoint (thank you Gamergate...) but for the most part it's pretty chill. And I like that.

Aye. This place is a filter for me. Come for gaming news that gets filtered through here and if I end up talking about other gubbins then great.

Everyone's more laid back nowadays I think, so arguments are few and far between. Debate does tend to be kept to a minimum on a lot of subjects that would likely flare up conflicting opinions though.

I've noticed that weekends tend to be absolutely dead nowadays compared with ye olde times. Life gets in the way of just idling around on the internet for most people I imagine.

I haven't visited Preys-World for (*checks*) five years... blimey. Just had an idle thought ten minutes ago and figured I'd see how things were going, and it warms the ol cockles to see the forum still going strong :) I assume Dave's still about?

I'll have a poke around and see what's going on these days!

Edit: An 'Avatar' avatar, HAH! Wow, that certainly dates my account somewhat.

I have been perturbed by the quietness of PW over the last few years, but it's nice to see a burst of activity of late. I myself am also to blame for a lower post rate, but activity breeds activity!

We tend to go in fits and starts don't we.

I must confess I am crap at posting at the weekend - life and stuff...
