If it is the one moment, I guess it was feeling lke part of the Community in the DCU Campfire thread in the Random Forum.
I was originally given a handle based on my real name and some numbers.
Something in the forums must caused me to change my handle to TuroKSonOfStone1950.
With anonymity, I started to post to the Forums.
The first two I remember involved the then (and still) mysterious Applejack. One thread maker talked about older fans not being served well. I responded, since I was old, and talked about my difficulty in walking which has progressed badly over this year as well that I left comics in after the Batman TV series had made DC comic silly. The second thread involved Applejack proposing that Santa Claus and Superman might be the same. I replied that Santa was more like Batman, citing the song with lyrics like He knows whether you are bad or good so be good for goodness sake.
Me responding to the threads weren’t was good. I had a tendency to respond to interesting posts of others, not realizing it was off topic, so I got deleted when I posted Links to Youtube on Wonder Woman’s author. This trend continues to this day.
Other times, I posted way too much info. I thought of myself as a thread killer.
Also when I created threads on Best Fan Fiction, How to Write Fan Fiction, Using Existing Fictional Worlds, My Novel and the original My Script I submitted to Denny O Neil for NYU, they were ignored.
So I stopped writing threads, except for proposals Listing the Start Reading Articles in New , Changing Get to Know to include these articles and Contrasting the two different links given to send people to Help, one that didn’t have an obvious Contact Us while the other WAS the Contact Us link.
I continued to answer posts often copying and pasting the Start Reading News Article for a character, which was huge and without links, messing up the thread.
I also forwarded other people’s problems to Tech Support, when they didn’t and then Support after getting a ticket numbers
I loved the weekly prompts from MissInkPlot.
I started to respond to the Latest and Favorite Movie Song TV type Threads and rven admitted that I watched the Bachelorette as my Latest TV show. I also posted way too much info about my life, as my health declined further, secure in my anonymity.
But in Camfire, I submitted a song, about 15 stories and contributed to the racoon segment.
Then I had inadvertently disclosed ny birthday and a thread was created on that. The Happy Birthdays were very nice and appreciated
Currently I am finishing a thread on my Third Writing Topic, on Dialogue. It has a small group responding so far but the posts are very good.
I hope to be part of the Beta Testors on Community 2.0 because of this and my experience and that since I can’t walk I have a lot of time on my hands.
So it took almost a year but I feel more a part of the Community.
