I like being present and available for people to chat with, but sometimes I fear that I may be chiming in with my thoughts too soon and potentially cutting off good conversation.
I think of this forum as just as much for everyone else as it is for me personally. But I am also unavoidably the "man behind the curtain" and this forum probably wouldn't be here if I wasn't running Spirit Blade Productions. So there may be a slight intimidation factor for some folks.
Sometimes it may not be an issue, such as when we're talking about some fan/geek related preference. (vampires are cooler than werewolves, etc.) Other times, such as on the "Seeking Truth" forum or when responding to thoughts about my audio dramas etc., I'm afraid that when I share an opinion or a conclusion I've come to, people are more hesitant to respond in disagreement and my word becomes "the final word", which I don't want to have to be the case.
Now, there are a few of you who I happen to know for a fact aren't the least bit hesitant to post on here in disagreement with me no matter what the topic. And I'm certainly interested in your feedback. But I've also put up the poll as an option for those silent folks who would like to anonymously give their feedback on this one.
My aim is to make the forums as welcoming and active as possible. I'm happy to hold back a little or a lot on posting if that will somehow help.
Thanks for your input everybody!
