We all do it, we have all mostly been here forever, to the point where in LGH conversation we can sorta pick up where last convo ended or know enough about each other mto tease about things. its the glue that binds a community.. you wunna go where everybody knows yer name.
Now, imagine being the new person looking in. How intimadating that must feel.. to see an active chat full of all the laughter and teaing and feel like you dont belong. Esp with how quickly chat can move in LGH..youre new...you post a timid little hello.. before you know it 10 people have posted after yu and the hello gets lost. or a question...
sometimes since we knoiw the answers an have known them forever, the answer can start to feel like gee how can you NOT know the answer.. so we act like oh wow.. eh..they'll figure it out or someone else will respond.. before you know it...10 people post and question is lost with that timid hello
Now, the LGH community is by far the best most helpful damned community in all of SL. i know that.. i see it every day \☺/ but lets not forget to welcome the new people into our midst with enthusiasm and open arms =)
after writing this i looked into lgh and see kev and Iona helping not only a new resident but one using a difrent language... erases everything up above and writes.. just keep on being you =D
