When I got back into Line Rider, I wanted to change my avatar. Just changed it to Pachirisu for no reason. Thought it was cute. But I want a cool one and I have no idea what image I'd want defining my online personality. I've been thinking about it for like a year, and I can't find anything that I feel really describes me.

Also, it took me so long to realize that a lot of you guys have your name in your avatar. Like Conun and Opals newer one. No idea until like last month. Same with sheldons old one, and I think there's s few more than that. I suspect OTDE has one now somehow... Not sure.

I find it worrying that I am afraid to make tracks, after all these years of doing so.

I feel like that fear is healthy and normal for any player

It's not. Anxiety about critical reception is normal. Fear isn't.

Fear is a healthy manifestation of our misgivings and inhibitions related to a specific behavior, critical reception was never something that I feel held you back.

Where do you think the fear stems from?

Fear, I really haven't felt so much.. I've just been too preoccupied/lazy.. Neutral              I do have something planned for the near future however.

I feel like the standard for a "good" track has gone significantly downhill. And what people used to make compared to a couple years ago were far more creative and imaginitive.

This is just my opinion of course, i just want to get my thoughts out there in case anyone may be thinking the same thing (which i doubt, and i suspect it could just be me).

If you dont agree, thats fine, i hate to be negative but its important im being honest. Also, im not saying any persons work in particular.

I'm starting to realize this as well, it may be because there is already so much out there.

There's hardly any -new- things we see in tracks these days. I was surprised to see the singularity wormholes in HAM, because they are something that hasn't been seen before, but even those had been postulated before. We are nearing a time where we have executed most concepts possible in LR, and it'll be interesting to see what happens next.

maybe lr has been a metaphor for life this whole time

I think we're hitting the limit of conceptual stuff that can be done -using quirk-. There's so much we haven't touched conceptually because we're treating it like a game and not a tool for art. Everyone's been predominantly doing manuquirk for -years-, so of course everything is gonna start feeling similar—we've been making the same stuff constantly.

Instead of moping and saying "aw, we've all run out of ideas," be the change. Show everyone you're willing to take risks. Break conventions. No one else is going to do it for us.

The thing is is that's what I'm talking about. Maybe I just find different things creative than anyone else here.

It's subjective more than anything.

We agree! I'm not arguing against you here—we need to branch out, and you and I are in agreement on definitions of creativity. I'm responding to "we have executed most concepts in Line Rider"

A big reason I'm pushing so hard to rebuild a user base is to foster a diversity of approaches to Line Rider. There is so much more.

When I share Line Rider tracks with friends, I don't recommend most of the community picks.

I already have some completely new ideas, but it has no meaning without execution (see: "make line rider dance" -> ragdoll).

I want to get back into making tracks but it seems the standards for what makes a track "good" surpassed anything I could do long ago. Too much perfection involved, too much time consumed.

I also feel like I started off with LR too young. Not knowing how to be properly respectful and social at the same time kept me feeling isolated from the community. Neutral

I feel you there. I felt isolated for a very long time. I think part of it is I don't think I've actually told anyone here about myself so I know for a fact that nobody here really knows me. But I would always be up for getting to know other members of the community. If you ever want a new internet pal, hit me up PM or skype. Or anything really.

- offsled has 2x the possibilities off onsled, and more (seriously, offsled is half if the game and theres been like 5 offsled tracks ever)

- the only way to get "better" is to not care what people think about your tracks

- tracks need to be more bosh-centric

- tracks would have a lot more variety if we expanded our musical horizon

all imo of course

I stuck with the line rider community for a long time less because I enjoyed making things and more because I felt a self-imposed debt of sorts hung on me that I felt was necessary to pay back to the community, after getting me through my roughest years in middle school. It wasn't until a friend reminded me that most of the people who I was really good friends with back then have left anyway, and that the people I would "paying" the debt to wouldn't know or care, that I began to focus on what I remembered loving about those times back then.

For me, it was that I was surrounded with people who wanted to help me get better, and wanted to interact with me not just as a trackmaker, but as a friend.

Now I'm in a place where I enjoy trackmaking more than I ever have, and I think that's a better reason to be here than any obligation I might have previously felt.

I am sad I missed this post.. Miss you buddy, you were one of my first friends online from line rider. If you ever come back, hit me up dude. I also felt like I started too young, and made some dumb youthful decisions in the process. But then again, I have made some horrid decisions recently... :/

It has always bothered me whenever someone decides to delete their track videos in an act of anger and resentment, that the first thing they are met is the community just putting their works back up. I'm not talking for the sake of archival purposes (that's entirely different), but re-uploading their videos to a location they no longer have control over, and without explicit permissions. To me this is a major slap in the face to whomever the creator was, as it's disrespecting them as an artist. It completely objectifies the person, boiling down who they were as a person, into a chunk of data. This shows that the people who have gone and done this act of "preservation" doesn't actually care about the artist, and that feels terrible knowing that all you're worth to someone else is the tracks you made, and these serve nothing more as painful reminders of something you now hate, feel ashamed of, embarrassed, and or enraged that you used to be a part of. To emphasize more that it's a lack of care for the artist, a number of people from this community could destroy all of their works, and not everyone would see the community clambering to preserve their "art". I'm pretty confident if I put all my tracks on private no one would notice. In fact I already have a few tracks on private that I released, and no one has ever brought them up to me before. Restoring these videos against someone's will is not an okay thing to do.

This has nothing to do with recent events, but it reminded me.
