Quote from: ValamirUnless elitism is somehow misconstrued to include any effort to understand any subject at a level deeper than the superficial.
Quote from: ClayIf you want to tone it down, stop using jargon.
Quote from: ValamirGiven that, I personally find it ridiculous for people to complain about the uncertain and shifting nature of the jargon. From a certain perspective its flattering that they assume that we few folks here should be able to invent a perfect lexicon to explore an understudied art form nearly instantaneously...we'd have to all be geniuses to pull that off. But mostly its just flat out annoying. It demonstrates how little thought most folks put into their roleplaying if they can think for a minute that creating a language to discuss it is a quick and easy task.
Quote from: jdrakehOf course, I could be way off-base here. I've had a fairly emotional past several months, and the mental wear and tear could just be taking its toll. I openly concede that this could be the case, though it wouldn't explain other people noticing these same thing ;)
QuoteValamir, if it shifts so much that multiple posters give flatly contradictory definitions you have a problem.
QuoteThe Force issue came up on RPG.net by someone who's very well versed in GNS and posts here a lot.
