i can't afford a diary, so this will have to do
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

    Musings, and choosings

    I feel like h-staff should want to be involved with their members and active in the forums. It always bothered me in the past that several h-staff team members were never present in the public forums or even in the staff areas (minus HQ). It always felt like they were just hanging onto their colored name and had no interest in the forums or their activity. Granted, things are much better with the current h-staff, but I always wish that the admins and s-mods would be as active as some of the mods and members are.

    Nobody should be forced to post, but I think if you want things to reflect positively on the forums, there needs to be some kind of community from the top to the bottom and that includes h-staff.

    I also agree that hstaff should have a public presence. Hstaff doesn't have to have my absurd post-per-day count and time spent logged in (cuz, ya know, most people actually have lives). While we are staff, we are also still members as well, and having colored usernames doesn't change that. Staff having a public presence lets members know that we're people too and not just robots created by Rukario to police the forum.

    Not saying that all hstaff members should be forced to post on a regular basis though. No one should have to post more than they feel like/are comfortable with.

    Something like that.

    That's some nice words from our Gav!

    I always admit higher staff weren't very active in areas outside of the staff forums (although Sheep, Went, Sydian and maybe one other that's escaping me still seem to post publicy on a consistent basis) so I think it'd be cool if the PC staff of the future get more active in various boards while still doing their job at the same time.

    Zach pretty much sums it up there, it's always nice when staff involve themselves in public areas because that makes PC feel more like... well, a community.

    I definitely think public activity from the higher staff is a necessity. Maybe not so much of it, but from a perspective of a normal member, I would at least be interested in knowing that the people that help run the forum are a part of the community, and not just some person that makes decisions that the community may like and/or dislike.
