I was never that wrapped up in the blogs but she's absolutely right about everything. Sad to see her go, she was cool. :(

I don't agree with her completely. There are still a lot of good blogs. As the mythos became more popular, we all knew that more shit ones were going to pop up. That's just how it goes when the subject is public demain.

On the other hand, I think people who ignore criticisms of the blogs under the caveat of "don't like, don't read" are part of the problem here. As an author one should always search out criticism and embrace it with a giant fluffy hug. If you crossover in a way that is difficult to follow, learn from that mistake. Slenderblogs are fascinating in that they're a constantly evolving stream of fiction-- in a good blog you can see the author maturing, as well as the character.

I understand the reason Thage quit here. It's difficult to write a blog in one genre when the entire genre you're writing in shifts, if you get my drift. I, for one, liked the new direction Para-not-so-normal was going in, and Peering in was always great to me. I'll miss these blogs, but that's the way it goes.

There is a rapidly diminishing supply of sanity in the blog-o-sphere. So much friggin' drama. I hope people start learning from this stuff. Cardinal rule of the mythos; Don't Be A Dick. Or at least that's what it should be.

Can't say I blame her one bit.

I hope Thage realizes that the blogs aren't the entire scope of the SlenderMan Mythos and that she'll still visit the forum. Too many people get caught up in the blogs and ONLY the blogs. She's one cool customer and I like her. Wouldn't want to lose her.

After that rare bout of Vivi-compliments, I WOULD run off to ship her and myself in the shipping thread, but she actually did that once all on her own. Very Happy

At least the final IC posts are written in a way that allows the characters to just disappear into obscurity, although I'd have perfered definitive endings. And I know I raged at Fizz's revival, but it was still better than most of the recent blogs.

I also hope Thage will still stay around here Smile

Honestly, you should keep going. So what if they're "killing the mythos"? It's their idiocy and you just can't help the stupid people that like those blogs. YOU don't have to read those. You don't have to deal with those. Just ignore it IC. Don't let it affect what you have going on. Ignore it. Don't acknowledge it. And keep going. It seems like Sturgeon's Law, "90% of everything is crap", is showing through more in the blogs now.

But I share the same thoughts as Vivi. Blogs aren't everything. And there's the video series like Marble Hornets that you can always enjoy.

And if you're REALLY that mad about it, you could always get revenge.

The game is lessened without the White Queen. I believe that title was earned, not given.

/bow Rest now, Thage, and well played.

She should do what I do. Don't read any of the blogs, just stick to MH, EMH and TT

Eh, well this is kind of disappointing, but it's understandable I guess.

I'm just worried about how Reach and Ava are going to deal with this, but I guess they'll just head to Egypt as planned.

Still, it would probably be wiser to just ignore all of the blogs that you hate, but that's just my personal opinion.

Okay, Thage's decision and I guess we'll have to stand by her on this one.

But just in case Thage decides to quit this forum I will strongly suggest not to. I came close to quitting over different reasons, yet stayed...Those reasons should be the same.

1. Everyone here has the same passion.
2. Good people live here and will back you up...to a reasonable point.
3. There are others here who look for originality, but will only give constructive critique and not give it for its own sake.
4. You'll miss us, you know you will Very Happy

Now Thage, if you are reading this, take a weeks sabbatical and get your head together. And always remember the words of the great prophet Douglas Adams..

DON'T PANIC

This really sucks. I guess that's the problem with amateur fiction universes; eventually those with ideas and talent give way to those with neither.

If you're in this frame of mind, I would suggest leaving the blogs well alone, yeah. When you have that much interconnection, the chaff tends to come up as much as the wheat.

Even though I don't agree with some of what she's saying, and the harsh language used, it'll be sad to see her go.

I'll still pop in to say hi, and I'm still going to be just about omnipresent on the Skype Not-So-Tinychat, and I'll be on the TC semi-regularly. I'm done with the ARG, yes, but not with the people worth knowing. Smile

Doublepost, but a relevant anecdote: I spent two years of my life trying to help drag the community on the World of Warcraft server I used to play out of the sewage it had become. Eventually, I hit my breaking point, dropped contact with all my friends, and left the game because I'm not the sort of personality you need to try to save a ship that wants to sink and gets pissed off at you when you plug holes. I've neither the time, emotional stability, or inclination to do the same with the blogosphere.

Though, yes, I'll still be watching MH. Razz

Hope this generation doesn't follow these examples....

Maybe my ideas will take flight!

Aww Thage. I'm very sorry about how certain bloggers have driven you to this and I agree wholeheartedly on some things you said about them. I don't really know what my blog qualifies as because I've tried to keep it out of the connection to everyone else. It leaves it quite obscure but I like it where it is.

If your leaving the blagosphere, I'm glad you're atleast staying here so I get my fix of wingflaps and threats of being consumed in the reckoning!
