Hell, I only go on piq to make announcements, not any actual drawings...

Hey, So I'm gonna make this as short as I can so I don't waste your time.

I want to get back into piq, I really do. I took the survery via email and all that. But the thing is, I feel as if I don't really belong here anymore. I would love to make the commitment to stay here. But something has been holding me back. I have been gone and all these things have happened, good and bad. It's hard to just pop in and give your opinion on it I feel. I almost see it as being rude.

So basically I'm gonna try to stay active but in a sense, it just doesn't feel right.

in all honesty does anyone feel like they belong here anymore?
by creeperslayer098, 09 January 2017 02:33
I don't really know, it seems as if a few sincerely belong here, but who am I to know.

And It brings up the question, what makes people belong here?
by zeldapickles, 09 January 2017 02:38
honestly im not even sure
when i did feel like i belonged (if that is even a word)
it was because i had a community which i got to know and communicate with, now that much of that community is gone or become silent, its harder to feel that same sense of belonging

Thats the thing, I think you just have to stay on and comment, and give feedback or whatever the hell you do. I think if you stay persistent, that might be key. But who knows just a thought.
by zeldapickles, 09 January 2017 02:55
tbh i've been here a while when a buncha the users were younger so it was a lot easier to know them cause everyone literally commented on everything

honestly persistence is a lot of it, just gotta be friendly and converse with others i guess
by creeperslayer098, 09 January 2017 03:00
I must admit, I am younger than most on here. I feel this contributed to the harsh reality of having that feeling of "belonging" is a reality.

So many users are older and since they have been here longer they are much more familiar with each other. I think today is was an impactful day for piq. All these users may not stay. But even if I can't join the conversation. It feels good to see that everyone is still one big family.

as an older user its mostly just reflecting on the older days of piq
really its not too big of a deal that they're older but i get what you mean
its hard for me to get to know a lot of the newer members of piq as much as i would like ;w;
glad i'm able to talk to you now even tho im not sure how long you'll stay on for
by creeperslayer098, 09 January 2017 03:11
I don't know either, ear conditions are keeping me up...

And I have made attempts to get to know some of the older members, like grog, Lumpkins, disaster, but they all seem to look right through me and don't pay any attention. So after a certain point you just give up.
by zeldapickles, 09 January 2017 03:15
The reason I stay is because this is the only thing that makes me feel like I have a purpose. Even if I do not draw much, I will get real upset if I can't be here

@Dan The thing is when i come back after a long break i don't feel like i have a purpose here anymore. I feel like i left you guys and you don't want me back in a sense
by zeldapickles, 09 January 2017 18:07
