Why do subjects like diversity in fantasy, religion in fantasy, lgbt topics etc get close down fast in the Facebook group yet here in the forum there stay open where everyone is civil to each other even if you disagree with each other. is it because it’s mainly writers here who can express themselves better without resorting to insults or is it because people who use forums today are of an older generation or because there’s less people on the forum then on Facebook.

What I don’t like in the Facebook group is that your posts get lost straight away. With people posting new stuff constantly about wheel of time.  ;)

And memes of the Witcher.

It's because of the 3% asshole rule. 3% of people in the world are assholes. So, the larger the group the more assholes there are. Once a group gets to a certain size it reaches critical mass where the assholes hijack every thread with an interesting topic.

BTW, how do you guys like Wheel of Time? I think it's wonderful and everyone should read it.  ;D

In my experience, it's the quick gratification of throwing a quick comment on facebook, whilst on their phone (probably sitting on the toilet) that waters down the content. They haven't got, or don't want to use their precious time to actually read a conversation thread, and just have to get their 2p in, regardless of whether 600 people have already said the same thing or not.

Thanks @Eclipse! Yeah, it's been a few years!

A few things in my personal life mean that I feel the need to reconnect with the things that make me happy, book forums being one of them.

Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

If anyone should ask that question, then WoT isn't really a good book for them. I'd nudge them over to smaller or standalone books.

You know how in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Earth is a super computer designed to find what the ultimate question is for life, the universe and everything? Perhaps that is the question and the fantasy faction facebook group is how the computer is choosing to share the question with the universe?
