eplaya is an information instrument that seems to play itself and can also be plucked (the bumps) or mined (by reading really old threads, whoa!) it seems to live and breathe and float in space, rotating and pulsating with a colorful warm heart beat and rhythm of itsâ€™ own, like a gyroscope with virtually endless threads and strings spinning all the time, for newbies we can reach out and read, learn and grow, for long time burners they can ask and do the same when they have a fresh thought or feeling
I belong to two other excellent forums both non burningman (I know about tribe and the other forums, not ready for that) I will not plonk anyone there or here on eplaya...every post is part of the "fabric" of the whole canvas...sometimes I may want to plonk (one annoying person on the other non BM forum but he is one of the founders, I cannot bring myself to do it)
I'm sorry to hear some on eplaya feel the need to plonk, but if harassment etc is the reason, then yes it should be done for obvious reasons
eplaya is not the playa but it's also extremely valuable, to us all...the amazing mods & vets and newbie brainiacs...their intelligence wit, humor and snark......are priceless. The connections made cannot be compared to regionals... (another excellent animal altogether)
I'm sorry I didn't make the meet n greet, I thought it was a handful of people who were going to meet on the paved HWY 447 Sunday night! (Hi Doc, it was fun to deliver Hula Barbie! finding you was like a reverse scaveneger hunt..busy day for me haha) Missing the M&G is one tiny example that eplaya is not the real playa, hahaha...but there's soooo much more....heh heh...dig around here and join the festival and you'll understand the "sooooo much more"
I told 10x++++ long time burner freinds what I learned from eplaya and they were delighted ...Jack Rabbit Speaks was their source..yea, sure JRS is good but they've also realized this is our amazing place...I guess you would call them newbie/eplaya/vets and soon here they will be arriving, if not already...and snark doesn't bother them..it's funny and part of the fabric...
Thank you all kindly for your help to we newbies!
No, I'm not tripping but I am a trip...my grammar isn't perfect, call it Malibu/New Yorker gone to seed in Northern Calif...see you in the dust....
I'm the MAN in a truck, burner who is stuck, you're in luck! I'll whip out my BIG tow chain and not charge you, not even one lousy buck!
