Whatever Happened to the Knights?

As The Stranglers once asked: 'Whatever Happened to the Heroes Knights?'

Seriously though, with the exception of Carlos hardly any of you seem to be present in the forums I have access to? I don't even know who's still here?

Is it possible to get a list of Knights who are still active?

Hallo Brian, peaceful timezone

Perhaps,
it is only a season where each person builds a little bit more their own Jedi path in real life,
instead of being Jedi Keyboards.
And maybe in the future will be too many Knights and less apprentices,
everything changes in statistics but I'm curious to know the same thing as you

May the Wisdom be with us

Agreed.

Though I thought the question relevant as there have been comments in some of the threads about the discussions being less spiritual and 'jedi' related than they used to be. I was discussing it with another apprentice, and I think thay one of the many contributing factors is that knights are less present.

If memory serves, they were far more involved in the threads than they appear to now, and they often started their own threads much more often than they seem to these days. I think this helped to guide discussion and keep more of a focus on the spiritual/faith side of things

A common enough experience. There reaches a point in the training when a Jedi should be out there, engaged in the path and doing good work. For the last few years I've been studying counselling and this year I started work as a school counsellor. I haven't been very active in the community as a result. It happens in a lot of groups and unfortunately it does mean that there's going to be less interaction from members who are actually out there living the Jedi Path.

Passion, authenticity, power, victory.

Verily- the presence of the Knights would be nice for the atmosphere, but that is no guarantee.

I, like many others, am offline more often than I'd like, but that doesn't mean I don't care. It just means offline-time is more valuable. I can effect change there; instead of spending hours catching up on threads (that have either gone off track, or are beating the same old horse) only to be unheard or simply missed, I train my apprentice, work on my writings, and love on my little family.


While I can't speak for everyone, this is also the tail end of summer, where folks are coming back from vacation/holiday and getting back into the swing of school or work.

Alas, do not fret!! We are here behind the scenes doing our works and trying to stay afloat!

The Force is with you, always.

Thanks Barger. I too understand the importance of Offline Jedi-ing, given my 18 month hiatus. It also wan't a criticism of the knights, I've argued in support of them plenty in the past, just a query :)

Honestly why I didn't continue pursuing my knighthood here. I couldn't make an honest commitment of time.

I am just bumping this because I believe this is a discussion worth having, and do not want to see it fall to the wayside.

Fighting what you cannot see, will only lead you to lash out with violence towards everyone. Know your enemy, and you may find yourself a friend.

You can act real rude and totally removed

I'm not here because the rest of the membership has decided to allow this place to descend into chaos, and it no longer enriches my life. If that changes, I'll become active again, but until people are willing to let me help, all I'm doing is spinning my wheels here.
