Quote from: Tim AlexanderIf Mark is out there, I wonder if he feels like that's helpful for him too?
Quote from: Mark Woodhouse[Well, sort of. My difficulty leans more to trying to balance that need to hit everything that is relevant and still be readable, while also, as Ron reminded us, having a real point that I can offer up for discussion instead of just "this is what we did."
QuoteI have an AP in my head and even outlined in text that's all about playing DitV Gamist, but it doesn't resolve because the context for it is so complicated that the whole thing becomes a digressive mess. Maybe I'll take the suggested outline and try to refine it enough to post.
Quote from: Ron EdwardsIt doesn't matter what the point specifically is. Maybe it's a point about using a particular system. Maybe it's a point about some aspect of your social interactions. Maybe it's a point about saying "I" instead of "McCargar the Macerator."....So! Raise a feature of play, whatever it might be, that others can use for a basis for comparison. And be damned sure that you, personally, are interested in that feature, so that discussion of what you actually did and discussion of how others do can be fruitful.
Quote from: clehrichI think "making a point" can be rather daunting, frankly. I think that some folks, and I'm included in this, are not at all confident that "I had a great session today" also means "I have something important that you should all sit up and pay attention to." That seems a bit presumptuous. More commonly, this arises I think when it starts with "I had a crappy session today." So if you want to post good play, happy play, I think realizing that asking why it worked may be very valuable for everyone.
Quote from: Ron EdwardsHere's the point. This is discourse. You need to raise a point, something upon which someone else can express or arrive at mutual understanding with you.
