I haven't written a single welcome message to all the people who have come from November onwards, and I feel sorry for that. However, you haven't gone unnoticed, and something I've seen is that not many of you made it to the Discord chat, which means that you didn't contribute too much to the forum. Seriously, I understand that some of you might not have time to post or even read and that some others might be too shy to think that their voice and opinions are going to be relevant or even valued.
But trust me when I say that everyone's opinions matter. If you put even just a bit of thought in your posts you'll quickly see how you'll get tons of responses and likes, which means that the community is appreciating you. And even if you don't receive many, don't falter. There are many passive readers that still enjoy reading through all the posts in this community even if they don't manifest their existence.
It bothers me a lot when people introduce themselves in this topic and disappear within a few weeks. It's as if they got here, gave Kazamatsuri a chance and thought that it wasn't worth it. So please, if you happen to read this and it's been some time since the last time you posted, consider giving Kazamatsuri another chance. If you just got here, follow my advice and don't be afraid to share your thoughts on different matters. I think fear of being new and insecurity about your own posts' quality is what makes so many newcomers quit so early on, but this isn't something that you should ever be afraid of.
