2008-04-27 [SilverFire]: I have an objection as it were, to what is in this section being classed as 'Metaphysics'. I don't see any real metaphysical content to these classrooms. Metaphysics is a philosophical field about attempting to discern what exactly things such as 'time' and 'change' are, and whether they exist, not about auras or EVP.
2008-04-27 [Imperator]: What do you suggest should be the name of the department instead?
2008-04-27 [SilverFire]: Both would fit under 'paranormal', I think.
2008-04-28 [Imperator]: If you feel that "paranormal" would make a better title you may transfer this page and change all the necessary links but I don't understand what is discussed on this page well enough to make decisions like that.
2008-04-28 [SilverFire]: Not metaphysics. :P I know metaphysics well enough to know that, since it's philosophy, but I don't really know much about what is actually on the page.
2008-04-28 [Estantia]: There isn't really much page-wise, and there have been plenty of discussions on true metaphysics, but simply no pages on those subjects.
2008-04-28 [SilverFire]: There isn't anything page-wise, and I found two metaphysical debates, one on time, one on possible worlds, mixed in with epistemology, ethics, and other areas.
If at least some metaphysical discussion has gone on, good - but anyone looking at this page for information is going to be completely led astray by the content of the wiki. The Metaphysics needs to be more than a few comments here and there.
2008-04-28 [Estantia]: #I'm not disagreeing there, but don't know enough to make a page and I think the teachers are fairly inactive.
2008-04-28 [SilverFire]: I can put up a few notes and such on actual metaphysical topics, it's just what to do with the current content.
2008-04-28 [Estantia]: is there a place already for paranormal things? I would expect the religion one to be somewhere. EVP IS phenomena though.
2008-04-28 [SilverFire]: There is a religion one somewhere, I didn't think EVP classed as a religious experience, though. :P And even belief in aura's doesn't require an organised system of belief about a deity. hence the suggestion for a 'paranormal'. I don't think there is one yet, but it would be easy enough to set one up. The question is if it is worth setting up, if the classroom is dead.
2008-04-28 [Estantia]: it pretty much is dead that's the only thing... i don't know if making it paranormal would help or not.
2008-09-22 [stevenp]: so really what has happended on this site it seems that all of the orginals are dying off and elftown is losing its spark? am i the only one seeing this?
2008-09-22 [The Voice of Difference]: No, Elftown is dying off, it just has some die-hard fans who really appreciate it, and then the losers who want to fuck it up. It's entertaining, actually.
2008-09-22 [SilverFire]: *agrees with [The Voice of Difference]* I think that part of the problem is that some of the older members suddenly realise that most of their friends have left, and instead of going out and making new friends, they just assume Elftown is dying, and start telling everyone that.
2008-09-22 [Estantia]: Really? That seems a bit silly, I manage to make new friends through rping fine...
2008-09-22 [The Voice of Difference]: Some people don't like RP-ing. While others thinks they needs a DM (Excuse my reference).
2008-09-23 [stevenp]: i will agree with the above statements, now that i have settled down in a stable location again, (i quit fema) ill be on more often again and will do my part, and thats why i asked a question and didnt state anything because i still love the site and want to stay a part of it
2008-09-23 [SilverFire]: You can make friends through doing more than RPing, though, I'm sure Estantia meant that only as one example, not as the only way. I make new friends through messaging people when I see something funny or interesting in their house. :3
2008-09-24 [Estantia]: Yup, got it in one SilverFire, not to mention link hopping, I think I managed to get from Calico's tutorial to Lerune's grey walker character a few days ago by doing that...
