Well. Id just like to make a statement on a few subjects that i feel are completely important for this community.
Respect and accountability.
Unfortunately this day in age a lot of people have know clue how these verbs work… Let alone what they really mean.
There is no reason for one of us to disrespect another, were all friends id like to think, anyone who shares a passion of mine is my buddy. We all learned the golden rule in kindergarten, treat others how you would want to be treated… Do it… Dont just read it.
I hear the term “playin moderator” a lot. This term shouldnt exist really. Holding someone accountable for their actions isnt a bad thing. Your not playing moderator when you do it. I not only hold my peers accountable, but myself in most situations. Accepting responsibility for some you have done and owning up to the fact you did something can not only take you a long way in life, but also improve your reputation amongst your peers. There is nothing wrong with holding people accountable, you dont hae to be rude about it either, just let that person know that whatever they did is not okay.
Sophemore year i was sent to a wilderness program where i learned these important life skills.
We also learned how to effectively communicate with each other.
Using sentences with “i feel” and “i hear” for example.
I feel frustrated when people do not respect the boundaries of others.
Or if it was an “i feel” statement towards another group member i would say
I feel frustrated when you do not respect my boundaries (insert name) because i respect yours and that respect should be mutual between us.
Okay hahaha i hope that sheds some light on how to be polite
Onto “knowing your place”
There are right and wrong times to say something.
Now… Since we are communicating through the internet, we cannot read each others body language. Which is unfortunate because body language really speaks…
Soooo, i urge you to do your best when you read someones reply on a post. To understand the “feel” of what statement they are making.
Knowing your place here on the forum is important…
And our places are…
We are all in this together, technically yoyoexpert is what runs thai website, but without us there would be nothing to talk about. So lets all share this awesome thing we have here, no need to be rude or ignorant towards others, bad words racist etc. are no no’s guys.
Please be respectful, and not only hold your peers accountable but yourself aswell.
Sadly, a lot if people will not understand this, which may just be whats wrong with the world. Be selfless.
Have fun tossin your toys around yall, im stillllll waitin for my summit >:| lol but today was a good day, im glad i could shed some light on these subjects. Peace love and good vibes sent yalls way <3
