I wish there was a reason to learn Esperanto, other than want. It might be cool to know it but that's not enough motivation for host to start learning, even less for me...

Dankon pro la oferto cxiuokaze. Discord estas bona ideo sed mi volas eviti gxin. Preferas mi verajn paperojn leterojn... sed eble mi bezonas jxus usas Discord...

Thanks for the offer anyways. Discord is a good idea but I want to avoid it. I prefer real paper letters... but maybe I need to just use Discord.

there are many good reasons to learn esperano:

it helps with third language acquisition in at least some cases; people who studied 1 year of esperanto and then 3 years of french got farther along in french than people who just studied french for 4 years

pasporto servo

you can talk to all sorts of interesting people across the world

you can contribute to the dream of having a more neutral and easier to learn lingua franca


I have a tulpa named Miela who I love very much.

You should explain La Pasporta Servo if you're going to list it as a reason, Bre.

@Srn347 Are you a doctor but not a doctor? What kind of doctor?

opinions welcome

 

I wish the graph was flipped upside down so it matches with the text. It was a little bit disorienting to have the graph go from a bottom to top direction while the text needed to be read from top to bottom.

 

But otherwise, I think it's fine.

I've seen a lot of people who act like just telling their tulpa to be nice makes it nice. It is true that telling your tulpa they should act nice makes it much, much more likely that they will act nice, but it's an important distinction. Repeatedly and consistently acting nice makes you nice, not just saying "I am nice." 

 

Yeah, I agree. A tulpa expecting themselves to be nice is only half the story.

 

Sometimes self-expectations can lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy, and that's in a nutshell why personality forcing actually works. A tulpa wants to be a particular way, so they make themselves a particular way. That could be niceness, but it could also be anything else, like being a pony or having a certain ambition.

but of course, you see it as a competition

don't worry, I do too

 

Eh... I kind of don't and do at the same time.

 

I know I'm not going to win, but every so often I like to mess with people by posting back as soon as I can. I'm not as good at it as Bre is.

 

Also, pro tip, if you're trying to win, these giant text walls seem to not be a very effective strategy. But these multiquote text walls are more aimed at chatting than competing.

what a productive exchange

 

Yeah, that's what I was thinking.

I'm way too low motivation right now to answer the people asking for help, or uh, deal with the guy talking about an animal abuse ring, sorry to leave that stuff to you guys

 

I think that's pretty suspicious that guy is asking people of this forum about an animal abuse ring and not an animal hotline. I don't recommend talking to this member until I can figure out what's going on.

@JGC I would leave this person alone for now, be careful about any messages you get from them. Don't give them money or your personal information.

this is that

 

I don't think that's a translation of "that is that", but then again I thought the use of IPA was meant to be the English translation...

Maybe when I'm older I'll be a host. Or travel with it. I hear a lot of people have just the greatest experiences, because a lot of the host families are well-off retired norweigan or swedish couples, situations like that, and they just want to talk to nice young foreigners, etc etc. Esperantists just tend to be worldly, compassionate, and friendly folk. 

 

It's sure not a language you learn to make money.........

Don't worry for me, Ranger, I'm not green about the internet.  

 

IPA isn't just for English. It's the International Phonetic Alphabet. I'm assuming that's Bre's conlang, then written in IPA aka the sounds, and then glossed into English.

I really like the idea of esperanto. It's just not something I'd ever really need I guess. I don't like traveling and I get enough social interaction with English and Finnish, so the only reason to really learn it for us would be "just because" : P Which is kind of a shame but I don't really mind.

it's a pretty rough translation, but that is what it means, unless you think that you know the language that I invented and that I haven't given anyone else the reference grammar to better than me
