I talk a lot... was created by ReallyRiver
I already know the answer (I'm pretty sure) so I suppose I am just looking for reassurance.

I feel like I post a heck of a lot in the forums, particularly the recent topic threads that pop up. I worry that it's excessive, especially for a Temple member as new as myself.

So... given that it's not repetitively argumentative and is on consentual topics... is there such thing as posting / talking too much here?

One thing I'd say, advice to anyone who feels they post a lot... I do too and I try not to "double post". If I think of something to add after my initial post, I go back and edit it in. That way it doesn't become a wall of one person's posts, and is a little more neat and tidy.

This is definitely something I do. I get so excited to share / interact / learn that I just post in the moment and don't take any time to stop and consider if I've any more thoughts before I hit "submit."

I've been feeling weird about doing too much editing of my posts. It's because I'm projecting my self judgment about my habit of posting without much editing or revising onto that little "reason for editing box" and have semi decided it's there so that people can decide whether I should have had to edit or not. I know that's my own junk getting in the way of reality, though. I hope ;)

On some longer post in my Seminary Journal and Journal I have edits of a couple of hours, :blink: though I noticed I edit less than I used to do these days; Many people edit posts, even if it where to be weird you are not alone in being weird. ;)

I also talk a lot! These are the general rules I go by (take them or leave them, lol!)

Personal Journals:
-talk as much as I want, as often as I want, and say whatever I want

Coursework:
-try not to ramble too much
-keep my work structured and coherent

Forum posts (especially heated discussions):
-keep it short and concise and to-the-point
-avoid TL;DR situations

Don't know if that helps, but I can assure you that I don't think you talk "too much" :)
