Re: Taking Home way too seriously

Yes, it's true. Taking Home too seriously seems to be running amuck these days. I don't get it. My thought is that those who take Home too seriously also take life too serious as well. They have nothing better to do but try to bully others as they do on the street in real life, real time.

While some choose to be ignorant there are those of us who choose to behave respectfully. This Home is not built on the Jeckle & Hyde system. People don't get transformed into a**clowns by participating in the Home Beta because they were already an a**clown when they got here. The problem is how do we make it stop? By reporting a**clowns that's how. Not going on Home just to Police for the Mods to beef up your I Got XX People Banned Count. If you do that, please take 1 step forward and report yourself, because you've become an a**clown.

While there are all kinds of people we should use home for fun and not as a personal stage of hate.

There isn't alot to do in the Beta so people are being creative and coming up with stuff to do.

I don't see why you are upset that people are doing what they want to in home.

 

I think it's far better that people come up with creatives things to do in Home than come on the board and whine and complain about the current state of Home.

Speaking on behalf of the Homelings as Commander of Mothership 9. I can assure you. It is a giant bit of fun for us. Its quite amusing how bent out of shape people get. I think its the same with any chat site though to be honest. If any of you remember Habbo Hotel from your younger days  then exactly the same thing happened on there. It was just less well known. This is so huge due to it being on a next-gen console that there's obviously gonna be some concentrated forms of madness goin on. I agree that everyone should just relax and enjoy it for what it is though. The homelings were created as a means to curb the boredom factor of home. Generally most of us are mature, enlightened, creative people (the ones i've met through Home anyway). But i see how some people would be misinformed or jump to conclusions. Especially due to the fact that anyone can grab the suit and design an alien. These issues will always occur when you have a giant chat room thats basically compiled of all ages. I've met some really solid friends on Home though that i would have missed out on if i didnt get into the swing of things and attempt to socialise with new people. I hope you find the same. 
 
YES! Good luck to the Homelings! You guys are fun to hang around with.

But did you forget the playstation2 motto, "live in your world play in ours" they want us to interact as us young teenagers  and express our feeling and our expressions. they want us to come together in one place and hang out

Re: Taking Home way too seriously

What a provocative topic.  Is it truly possible to take Home too serious?  There are many perspectives to think about when considering this issue, the least of which should be opinion.  I wonder, do you ever talk on the phone?  The exact same opinions were argued against the telephone when it first came out, that didn't make them true or viable.

I've written it before, and I'll continue to write it as long as it remains true; Home is a chat client for the PS3, nothing more, nothing less.  Chat clients, like Home, exist as tools to help people do what comes natural to us all, meet and interact with others.  Home is not based in fantasy, it is firmly based in real life, as a tool for people to broaden their horizons and meet new people that they would not normally come in contact with.

How we as Home users choose to interact with others is an individual reflection of our goals.  There are many different individuals out there and some chose to use environments such as home as a playground for fantasy role-playing.  It is to this category of user that I would surmise the original post was directed.  Role-players chose to interact with others from a perspective of their character, rather than themselves.  There is nothing "strange" about this.  In a fantasy role-playing scenario it is not uncommon for gamers to have their characters date, marry, and so on.  They certainly do not take such game-play seriously.  It is the unaware observer, who may not realize that what is happening is merely a game.

Whether you're a role-player or not, there are an innumerable amount of reasons why someone would want to meet others on Home.  The most obvious is to form new relationships with people who share common interests with us.  The primary reason for that, is to seek companionship, whether it is as a mere acquaintance, a casual friendship, or a more intimate romance.  There is nothing strange about it.  While the avatars are fictitious beings, the humans behind them are real, and the relationships which are formed between them are real.  This is neither strange or unhealthy by any means.

Since the dawn of time, people have used every tool available to find companionship, whether they were looking for love, religious answers, someone to philosophize with, or just someone to play with for bit.  It was no different for the first chat client, and it certainly won't be different for the last.

If it is your opinion that someone is taking Home "too seriously", then I advise you to take a break and think about what you use the Home tool for.  Perhaps it is you who is taking things too seriously.

So remember everyone, if someone tells you they spend 10 hours every day in Home and you think they should take a break, then they're not doing anything bad, in fact, you are the one who has done something bad by thinking they have done something bad, and you should, therefore, take a break and think what you use the Home tool for, since you're probably taking things too seriously.  This poster, of course, thinks that people who think other people take Home too seriously need to take a break because they take it too seriously, and therefore, s/he should take a break. This forum is just like home and everyone seems to have an opinion, therefore they all need to take a break.  It's all normal and natural, even those kids who think they're vampires.  Remember the relationships formed are real and there's nothing unhealthy about it, even when you discover the young slip of a girl you love is actually a fifty year old pedophile dressed in a giant bunny suit called Joe.

 

Wise words.

 

(and this person gets Kudos!)
