Entry: I hate this distance. Wednesday, August 11, 2004

Why is it that custom doll people seem so friendly and yet so cold at the same time? It's like Nat said, a closely knit circle.

I used to feel accepted when Articulate was around. It somehow made things more personal. People that you once admired from afar suddenly knew you existed, and were as friendly as they made themselves out to be. The "closely knit circle" started to unravel. A forum does that, I guess.

Well, Articulate closed down and the distance settled in again. The circle was mended once more.

It makes you feel like you're an annoying newbie or something. Like you're taking up their precious time every comment you leave on their blog.

I hate it.


On a happier note, my dream blythe:

Hey, mia, thanks for the nice comment that you made in my blog. I'm going to link your blog, if that's okay.

Now to poke around to see what's going on around here. ^^

Please don't feel that way. When a community gets too big, it's inevitable that we get "ignored" once in a while. I love the idea of forum instead of group, because it's easier for mod to manage, and easier for members to navigate. Hope that will improve the situation.
BTW,...your *cough cough* mailing *cough cough* addy *cough cough*

Humm. I know exactly how you feel about the doll community. The lack of commenting and areas to post with non-newbies (not that I have a thign against newbies) makes it seem like nobody cares. :( Which is really demotivating.

By the way, I'm armeleia. Nice to meet you!

It's a shame that it's gotta feel that way, but I know exactly what you mean. I'm in the process of making a forum myself. You can see the start of it here:
It might change, so don't start using it yet. But I would like to make a.... safehaven...? for the serious doll enthusiasts.
