Themed Discussion Group
« on: May 21, 2017, 02:41:21 pm »
Quote from: Anybody ever
I don't know what to talk about.
Therefore, why not make a themed discussion in Na'vi?

Themed Discussion Group in Na'vi

It says what it means: It's group for discussing in Na'vi. The only difference with a normal chat is that it's oriented to a certain theme defined before each session.

The processus is the following:
1. We suggest topics on the Discord server;
2. The topic is chosen (or several are chosen and sheduled);
3. An announcement is made on the topic of the next week.
4. The session occurs.

The topic can be about sports, culture, music, dreams, etc. The theme doesn't necessarily have to come from me. The participants could chose that via Discord, but the announcement will be made here. The topic shouldn't risk to cause heated debates.

I'm not sure about the length of the session, but I want it to last a few days. Then, it will end with the announcement of the next topic and will restart on Friday or Saturday.
Please note that the group discussion will NOT occur on Discord but on this thread.

In short, people tend towards easy to talk about topics when starting a conversation because they're easy. It is possible to use Na'vi to talk about almost anything, but people don't use it in a conversational manner. Rather, they use it in a forced one, where they're having to say "Tse...X" to kick off a conversation.

Ngaru tìyawr.. That's an entirely different problem that's just as common.  Though this suggestion could solve both.  If the theme of the timespan is something moderately difficult, we will still know at least what to talk about and it would be easier to start a conversation from it.  All we have to do to start a conversation if the theme is known up front is, simply make a relevant statement or set of relevant statements.  Then others can react with more.

I think both of these problems exist simultaneously: People don't know what is easy to talk about. ;D  But there is a lot out there.  An easy conversation starter is to ask about opinions of things, or ask about experiences with certain actions.  Conversations can be about anything.  This proposal is one way to narrow down a near-infinite list of possibilities and enable focus.

Don't worry, the subject's never going to be the theory of relativity. ;)
