Wow, I guess this really is the site for shy people. Ive only just joined a few days ago but the most recent post is from the first week in January. 90% of the other posts are frm November or older. Not a very active board. Id love to get some converations going. This a good way for shy and socially challenged individuals to communicate. I thought there'd be more people here. Let's talk.

At the time I read your post there'd been 296 views and not one reply. Other posts have views into 1,000 and still no reply. I'm extremely shy in person but after years of forums and chat rooms I can relax a little in this environment.

Funny, it seems this site doesn't lack people so much as it lacks people communicating, and that is a shame seeing as we're all in the same boat and trying to make friends.

I've only recently joined this site at the beginning of the month and the concept is a good one. I hope more poeple start opening up and replying to the posts others have written.

Lol, the ratio of the number of posts to the number of views is quite dismal. So it sounds like there is a lot of lurkers! I'd bet that a lot of people are just quietly dying for someone to reach out to them, but chances are slim that a perfect stranger will do that... it's true that most people get what they give. So it takes a little effort to get something. But maybe posting in a shyness forum represents acknowledging the things we (and when i say we i mean me) try to avoid~ but its cyberspace, so people can make a fake email, or whatever they need to do for anonymity, but still be a real person.

I often go to support groups for people with AvPD if I really want a reply. I have not even come here in a while.

`I'm here, browsing threads and answering where I see suitable. Really point isn't to speak about complicated things, I have noticed people love silly talk between others and strangers. It helps to find common ground. Otherwise with difficult question people start to wonder how to answer.
Anyway I listen music and work in Estonia, it happens to be place where I live also. I like to listen Internet radio station where they play chill-out music. My friends like rock and metal, that's good too. They have this power inside them which makes you move too.
I do regulary check back to forums to see any changes, actually it's easy to spot them :D

`You mean site loads slow? Yeah it isn't blazing fast, but there aren't much to read anyway.
Currently it is European Championship in football and if I have time and I am not working I'm watching football. Oh yes, it is called soccer in USA.
I just like to watch it, it takes my thoughts away and I can just watch 'em kicking ball. Sometimes it gets really interesting. I know it is most booring thing for many, like some of my friends don't care about football.

Hehe, yeah well it makes sense that shy people will read alot but not reply much, a few of us could get the ball rolling i reckon

I'd reply to the soccer/football stuff but i don't know a thing about it Razz
Nice to see that a good amount of shy people are physically active though, i like alot of outdoors stuff too, like archery

Diablo3 came out recently, any of you guys play it?

``I have cheesy PC for Diablo3, but I do watch esports from Youtube, Starcraft 2. I think if you know Diablo, you for sure know something about Starcraft.
Actually gaming is good topic, I recall my literature teacher told read books and you got something to talk with people. So I read some good books (even bought them, do you also so!) and found out a lot of people don't read books >>. With young men I can always chat with PC games, yeah. So books 0 and PC games 1, game on!

`I saw an interesting topic on gaming and had to join. I play MW3, 007, and WOW. Not really played Diablo much. Mostly like Nintendo games and RPGs...

As for books, I like reading a bit but can't ever finish it. Try to read a bit every day. Trying to read Gulliver's Travel, ever since I saw the newer movie, with Jack Black and Amanda Peet, Awesome actor and actress. =)

I'm more a PC gamer, mainly sandbox type games. Currently I have been playing Minecraft, Gnomoria and Towns.

Gulliver's Travels is a great book, though it can take a bit to really get into seeing that it was written some time ago and is largely satirical about the politics of the time as well as human nature. A lot of it is still relevant today though.

I'm not familiar with the recent movie version by Jack Black. So far my favourite was the mini-series done by Channel4 in the UK staring Ted Danson as it was the closest I have seen to the book. Some of the movies tend to concentrate too much on the Lilliput part of the story, when there is a lot more to it than that.

I hope you enjoy the book Smile

`Is Rollercoster Tycoon sandbox game? I imagine something like that, I know there are games where you can play with gravity and make interesting interaction with moving parts.
World of Warcraft is classics, looks like we are hijacking this thread, hold on Razz
@ Guylittle
You got some in-depth view on book Gulliver's Travel, nice post.

Update:
RPGs you say? I dig PlayStation One RPG series, specially Final Fantasy VII, my childhood friend played Suikoden alot. I do like RPGs also.

Are we hijacking this thread? The OP did say he wanted to get some conversations going. I guess that's what we are doing Wink

A sandbox game is one where you can roam freely and basically do as you like, without the restriction of a set objective or goal. Just like a child's sandbox where imagination is your only limit, hence the term. RollerCoaster Tycoon does have set park scenarios and a career mode where you have various objectives to achieve, while also allowing some freedom to create your own park designs and especially rollercoasters, but RCT3 does also have a sandbox mode which gives you free reign to create any park you desire, and there are some amazing creations featured on YouTube.

Minecraft is perhaps one of the best examples, I know of, of the genre as you can travel anywhere within the world, which is practically infinite. Everything can be destroyed and rebuilt elsewhere, rather like LEGO, to which it is sometimes compared Smile You can mine deep underground, or climb a mountain, build a treehouse, or a castle, fight monsters, or try to avoid them, lol.

I've never really got into RPGs, I did have a go at D&D once, the paper and pencil type that is, but never really got anyone else interested at the time. The games I mentioned in my previous post do have something of an RPG element to them with the need to survive in a sometimes hostile environment. They are more open ended than most RPGs and there is usually no end boss to beat, or even an ending at all!

Where you mention games involving gravity and moving parts, I think you mean games like The Incredible Machine perhaps. They tend to be more puzzle oriented I think, but can also have a sandbox like free form mode. Minecraft and Gnomoria even manage to fit that in as they both have to ability to build various contraptions and machines. Neither of them use gravity however and nearly everything in Minecraft actually defies gravity. Gnomoria uses wind power and Minecraft has a form of electricity using a substance called redstone.


Well, the inner geek in me is starting to get loose, so maybe I better close off here, lol
