is it just me or does it seem that both admins. pleeb and Amadeus. are underfunded and under equip.

if it wasn't for the mass support and loans. i'd say that this site was doom to bunk.

where's the funds when you need them most.

We have our challenges, yes.
Also, a donation system is in the works. It will not be used to fix my computer issues, though. I'm in the process of building a budget desktop for that, and I'm almost done.
We don't get much in life. But we do have this.

So after a long time of procrastination and other problems I had, here is the changed guide (warning, I changed a lot).

It looks good, very thorough and informative, without any really fluffy overenthusiastic filler. The actual language itself is well suited to the subject matter, informative and simple while using symbolism where necessary while still feeling conversational for new readers. I'm quite happy that you specifically mention the uniqueness of the creation process to each person.

I would recommend leaving a warning about the IRC, though, it is not usually as useful as you make it sound. There are also a couple places where you may want to enclose a page title in quotes. Another similar mechanical issue is that "(tulpa)forcing" can be switched to just "forcing" after the first usage, it looks a little messy. The second paragraph of "Further Development" needs an article to start its first sentence.


From Maia: "Good, very good. If you could add some thoughts from a tulpa's perspective, that would be great, but I would understand if you think it would alienate people."

That is pretty much my only concern about it. It's definitely better than the earlier version.

The IRC channels are pretty good at helping newcomers or at least I think so from the position of a mod. (Just for clarification: I'm mainly talking about #tulpa.info)

Good idea, but it's a bit tricky fitting that in. Where do you think tulpa's perspective would be good to add?


I made some smaller changes to the guide and here is the current version (.docx and .rtf). The changes are mostly grammatical and small changes in how 3 or 4 things were worded, nothing major.

I have no idea, actually. It seems like it could generate interest, though. Your call.

@EnnervateIndustries and Maia: I know, but I don't have any ideas currently as to how or where I should put it, so I asked you to tell me what you think.
