    FlameKeeping Chat Log - 13Sep2011

    FlameKeeping Chat Log
    Tuesday, 13 September 2011, 10:00 AM Eastern (US)

    You say, "small chat today"
    HeartShadow says, "yeah, well, this week we're demanding people tell us what they do for FK"
    You say, "yes. I demand it!"
    HeartShadow says, "personally, I don't do a damned thing. go figure it out on your own. :P"
    You say, "I poke and prod people."
    You say, "and savvy should be in here..."
    savatage has arrived.
    veggiewolf doesn't want more gods!
    savatage says, "i can't promise coherency"
    HeartShadow says, "... because the rest of us are making perfect sense?"
    You say, "savvy, we none of us have brain today. That's why the topic is what it is!"
    savatage says, "and what is it?"
    veggiewolf tsk tsks.
    savatage says, "eep"
    You say, "what do you bring to FlameKeeping?"
    You say, "How can you add to the system?"
    You say, "So, let's discuss!"
    You say, "wait - should be "what do you bring/what can you bring"?"
    HeartShadow says, "I bring the concept, the framework, and the yarn. but I don't share the yarn"
    You say, "and why not?"
    HeartShadow says, "because it's MY yarn. duh"
    You say, "then you're not bringing it to FK"
    savatage says, "honestly i have no clue, but i do know that's something to work on. in my head this is because i dont see that i have anything of worth to bring to anything, not just FK... this sounds whiney. I think i have some self examination to do :/"
    You say, "we don't hoard things in FK"
    HeartShadow says, "no, sweetie, we don't hoard IDEAS or KNOWLEDGE"
    You say, "savvy, you have *something* to bring or you wouldn't be here. How do you see FK?"
    You say, "oh...yeah."
    HeartShadow says, "yarn-hoarding is a perfectly natural lifestyle"
    veggiewolf pouts.
    You say, "seriously, we all bring a unique view of FK"
    You say, "and how it fits into our lives"
    FierFlye says, "okay, back for now"
    You say, "ok, Fier - what do YOU bring to FK?"
    FierFlye says, "well, i am working on additional tools and ....something"
    savatage says, "well actually when you put it that way, service. Just to explain i used to be in scouting, and each level here has a motto, the last age group has 'service' specifically service to others, the community and to yourself. I loved this aspect, but due to other problems with scouting i left. I've been trying for awhile to find something that fills that desire for service, and something about FK seems to fit that.."
    savatage says, "ohgodwalloftext"
    FierFlye says, "like, oracle cards and structure and faq"
    You say, "so, savvy brings service, Shad brings concept and framework, and Fier brings tools and structure"
    You say, "I think I bring questions."
    HeartShadow says, "I think you bring leadership"
    You say, "really?"
    HeartShadow says, "as in the hands-on daily actual nuts and bolts leadership"
    FierFlye says, "you are leading the chat"
    You say, "well, but that's because I do this in real life. I'm a trainer, an educator"
    HeartShadow says, "you do a LOT of the organization."
    HeartShadow says, "... and? it's still what you bring"
    You say, "I guess I think of it as less"
    You say, "because it is less tangible"
    HeartShadow says, "we always see our own gifts as less than the people around us"
    HeartShadow says, "hell, I'm constantly astonished that this stuff's worth anything to people! I feel like I'm stating the obvious - but clearly that's because I'm coming from a different viewpoint"
    You say, "I think you are...but you're not."
    You say, "you're stating what *should be* obvious."
    You say, "or what we'd like to be obvious"
    HeartShadow says, "well, and it's the connections I make that make the difference"
    HeartShadow says, "it's not that the basic ideas are new, but that *this bit* wobbles *that bit* that's hardest. which is what I bring"
    HeartShadow says, "but .. organization? *snort* not in a million years"
    You say, "so, within the four of us, we bring - service; concept and framework; tools and structure; leadership and organization?"
    You say, "what is missing? what can/should others bring?"
    You say, "that's not, of course, saying that any of us can do our pieces alone either."
    You say, "f'ex, imagine savvy being the only service person"
    You say, "that'd be difficult."
    HeartShadow says, "ye gods. that would be a nightmare"
    savatage says, "is this where i make a joke about servicing people?"
    savatage says, "i couldn't resist"
    You say, "if you lie. *winks*"
    You say, "lol - like"
    veggiewolf cackles.
    You say, "but seriously, where are the gaps and holes? creativity? inspiration? socks?"
    HeartShadow says, "alternate viewpoints"
    HeartShadow says, "I would like to be challenged more - well okay, no. I wouldn't LIKE it. but it would probably help the Flame"
    Guest1 has arrived.
    You say, "Hi there!"
    Guest1 says, "Sorry I'm late"
    You say, "Devo?"
    Guest1 says, "Yeah"
    You say, "Yay! You're just in time!"
    You say, "we've given you all the action items."
    HeartShadow says, "hey Devo. what do you bring to FlameKeeping and how can we best exploit I mean use you? *runs*"
    Guest1 says, "lmao"
    Guest1 says, "Um... well I can drawr purdy picters when the mood strikes me"
    Guest1 says, "I can help write up comparisons btwn FK and Kemeticism and potentially FK and Shintoism."
    Guest1 says, "ummm..........."
    You say, "alternate viewpoints"
    You say, "creativity"
    Guest1 says, "Beyond that, I'm not sure lol"
    You say, "so, I'll recap for you: savvy brings service; Shad brings concept and framework; Fier brings tools and structure; I bring leadership and organization"
    FierFlye says, "hey Devo"
    You say, "you bring alternate viewpoints and creativity"
    Guest1 says, "Hi Fier "
    You say, "now, this again is not saying that only one person should bring each thing"
    You say, "the more we have, the better"
    You say, "and...silence."
    You say, "ok, here's another question then - how can we apply what we bring in ways to encourage others to bring things to FK?"
    Guest1 says, "I try to encourage interest through my blog. I don't knwo if that counts any."
    Guest1 says, "people like pretty pictures... so that might work as well XD"
    You say, "sure it counts! why wouldn't it?"
    Guest1 says, "idk?"
    HeartShadow says, "I share this stuff instead of stuffing it under the mattress"
    You say, "yes, but that helps keep the braingerbils away"
    HeartShadow says, "no, writing it does that. trust me, I'd rather stuff it under the bed"
    You say, "Fier?"
    FierFlye says, "hmm"
    FierFlye says, "well, I want to help new people find a place"
    You say, "new to paganism or new to TC/."
    You say, "?"
    FierFlye says, "so, building structure lets people say, okay, this fits and gives me a way to start"
    FierFlye says, "new to FK"
    veggiewolf nods.
    You say, "maybe next week we should write the FAQs?"
    savatage says, "that kinda leads to what i was thinking of helping people see how FK could help them, or get them into a better mindset to help others(i know a fair few people who like the whole service thing but get stuck on the how)"
    savatage says, "i love FAQs"
    FierFlye says, "yeah, but I think we may have to pick a different time. I can't really concentrate when I'm at work"
    HeartShadow says, "we do need to do the FAQ thing"
    You say, "maybe during an evening then"
    FierFlye says, "that'd be better, yes"
    savatage says, "when would that be?"
    FierFlye says, "maybe we can post something about it in case anyone else is interested in helping, and pick the best day/time"
    You say, "AM your time, savvy. How's your work schedule?"
    savatage says, "work? what work?"
    savatage is a uni student with no job
    You say, "Ah"
    You say, "ok, so it would depend on classes"
    savatage says, "not until november"
    You say, "when we are done here, I can post something about it."
    FierFlye says, "cool"
    Guest1 says, "yay"
    You say, "so, I guess I try to bring other people in by poking them and posting about it."
    HeartShadow says, "I can't predict my schedule ahead of time - soooo"
    You say, "I also give the FK links to seekers"
    HeartShadow says, "not Wednesday and I might be able to show depending on family foo"
    veggiewolf nods.
    You say, "well, it is not like we'll get it done in one night anyway"
    HeartShadow says, "well, I'm not going to be at full until AT LEAST hubby's done with this kidney stone"
    veggiewolf nods.
    You say, "we'll work it out."
    You say, "so, anything else for this morning...or are we done?"
    FierFlye says, "i can't think of anything"
    You say, "Devo? savvy?"
    savatage says, "nada"
    Guest1 says, "I think so"
    HeartShadow has no brain
    Guest1 says, "I'll read the log afterwards to see what I Missed"
    Guest1 says, "And next week, I'll be Devo ,not guest XD"
    You say, "ok, I'll post the log. Yay!"
    veggiewolf applauds Devo.
