Thanks

Where are you starting from? Who are you? Are you an axe murderer? How long of a trip are you taking? Do you mind screaming kids? Do we get paid for this?

Dude you have NINE posts. It does not make sense for you to look to meet people from this message board.

... or maybe, just maybe, you've been out of touch for several years and might be unaware that this community has expanded beyond this message board and that people's activity in here doesn't reflect what's going on overall?

I am completely aware of your Minecraft thing. It's been there for several years and may be some part of the reason why other parts of this board no longer get posted on.

However, this user does not state he is from Minecraft or looking for people from the Minecraft server to join him. He states he is looking for people from the Interordi board to join him instead.

As for other chat rooms all linked chat rooms appear to continue to be always empty.

...Didn't know you were being mean now too. Sheesh.

Exodio wrote the same thing as well.

Also as stated in other posts there is not many new posts being created here which means others who see the board do not have the oppurtunity to reply to them. To which you replied that creating new topics on the Interordi board is good and that post was recent being only two years old from today (which for now and probably for the future, is recent on this board).

I think it's more to the point that at the time of posting, axe_y was one of the more active community members, since many old IO people - like yourself, in fact - had moved along to greener pastures. Most of the people milling around the forums nowadays are either on Creeper's Lab as well, or know a guy who knows a guy from it.

As for Exodio's reply, that was his typical sarcasm and wit; he's also from Creeper's and knows exactly who axe is. Again, had you been here and been active, you'd likely know who's who and what's what. :P

No-one's being mean, you're just being disingenuous and ignorant. That's on no-one but you, and I think it would be best for you to stop lashing out at everyone else due to your being "out of the loop".

Edit: In addition, actually, I'd like to point out that English isn't even axe's primary language, so he likely took to the forums to post and figured that the Creeper's section of the board would be specifically for things that relate TO Minecraft, whereas his trip was more a general thing unrelated to the game, and so chose the general forum to post it.

I'd be up for meeting you if you ever went on another road trip, Axe! I'm super out of your way though and there's literally no other reason to swing out this way.

He's probably right, just makes sense to include a note about that. And I believe Exodio was indeed here before Minecraft; if not then he has been posting botany in the board since then though it would probably be hard to rake up over 200 posts that way, and my memory is pretty certain he WS here before as well (even the Minecrat area does not appear to be so frequently posted to, unless there is 1-2 very long topics in there that go beyond notice for non-Minecraft people.)

There also isn't any reason to think anyone "has moved on" - besides certain of the people who have been here, who would have "moved on" to Minecraft or to the other game which had been posted as Doc running a server on more recently. Of course several people will have done that, but as several have also posted before, there is and has been the lack of posts available to respond to for that time. And presumably will continue in perpetuity (excluding those game forums), but that does not necesserily mean no one of some certain human is "not interested", etc.

...And no, it would hardly be "ignorant" to tell someone that a completely random post of meeting up with random users on a completely random message board which is unrelated to traveling or hippiedom, that such a post would be wrong and make so sense. The fact that this user happens to be known another way does not make my reply "stupid", since literally everyone would agree that that is the normal way to respond to anyone posting such a thing if they had not been known. It's merely that my comment didn't happen to be applicable, and that there wasn't any way for me to know that since he hadn't mentioned it.

I once had a best friend that spoke Croatian and who mainly learned English just from the message board. She was nearly perfect at it except that she couldn't get the concept of 'th'. Then I found out she was 13. I think she died. I wonder if she'd still be friends and still be caring if she hasn't.

I don't think a foreign language will likely be a culprit in this case since it's just about the topics and he was able to read those, but depending on one's age, they may not have experienced much in the way of regular/"community-based" message boards. However, there is also the case that he may be right about the posting location! Personally.. I'd probably put it in Minecraft if it's my only or nearly-only post on a board which has existed for other reasons beforehand and has not made a full-world-board/full-site conversion, but personality I think that either area also makes sense.
