Sakura Posted May 2, 2008 Share Posted May 2, 2008 [SIZE="1"][COLOR="Navy"]One of the units I'm doing this semester has had a particular topic that interested me. And that is online communities and their validities. As soon as I heard this brought up I thought about OB since I'm aware that we consider ourselves as a community. Since I've been pondering over it and discussing it in class, I decide to bring it forth to the populace of OtakuBoards to see everyone's opinions on the matter. So the questions I'd like everyone's opinions on are: [B]1.[/B] What do you think makes up a community (or makes a community a community)? (eg. is it common interest, geographical proximity, relational ties, etc.?) [B]2.[/B] Do [I]you[/I] consider OtakuBoards as a community? If so, what are you reasons for this? If not, why not? [B]3.[/B] Do you think online communities are valid? (I ask this because I know someone who thinks they aren't and that all who do are deluded) That's about all I can think of for now, add to them if you can think of any, as will I. But I'd love to hear [I]everyone's[/I] personal opinions about this matter, so please post. Thanks ^^[/COLOR][/SIZE] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
