[General] Kiahdaj's Absolute Guide to Tulpas
#11
Within the next few days, I'm hoping to work up the motivation to edit the guide.
I'm going to add the suggestions that have been given so far, as well as some that have been given by others, and things I recognize that I'd forgotten, myself.

In the meantime, if any of you feel that there is anything "missing" from this guide, please, speak up. At the very least, I will take it into consideration.
"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

I think it would be nice to have a bit about switching :)

Great guide, wish it came at the start of March though, would have helped a lot Smile Also, I am practicing passive visualisation, and read the whole guide to my tulpa, I skipped a bit at one point that I didn't feel I needed, and then he started looking a bit annoyed. I read it and he's fine now. Reading the guide gave me progress!

I've been waiting for an extremely detailed complete guide though. Most guides seem to be focused on one stage (which isn't a problem), or a brief overview. The problem with the guides for individual stages is that a lot of thhem contrast and I find that they make me question which I should follow. This has it all in one go. Love it.

Originally, I didn't have a section on switching because:
1. I don't have any personal experience in it (that can be remedied by looking into it a little, so that won't be a problem, if I do decide to add a section)
2. I'm honestly not really all for switching. Those who do it responsibly, I have no problem with. But the idea of switching sounds pretty glamorous, so it has, and will continue to attract people who do it irresponsibly.

So I may end up adding a section on it (after all, this is supposed to be an absolute guide, hence the name), but if I do, I will add a large, explicit section on why I'm against Joe Schmo doing it.

I appreciate the praise, and dearly hope that this guide continues to help many people.

I understand what you are saying, but I think you should add it anyway, be it only for the disclaimer.
Those who want to abuse it will just click the search button, type in "switching" and have a guide for that, regardless of wherever you put it in the guide.
Maybe it would make the possibility of switching known to people who wouldn't otherways have heard of it, but writing a warning will probably keep more people from doing something extreme such as perma-switching than making them do something like that.

Also it's funny that the 2 posts I read after posting that I want to try switching in my PR are the ones that say that switching is bad.

Best guide by far.
"DUDE! That's wrong! You don't do that! That's like giving a kid a knife and telling him that it's a neck massager!"
Shameless self promotion!

Second time you've mentioned that.

Now this is a nice use of colored text.

Yeah, so I'm not sure I'm going to update this guide any time soon.
I finally got around to it today, and after typing for about 3 hours straight, I lost all of the work I did.
I don't even remember all that I typed, and I also know from experience, that I can't say things as well, the second time.
