You're on -- but not until late April, when I'll have the time to properly stalk you.

1. A week is a long time.
2. Consenting = any sf0 member.

1. Agreed.
2. Agreed.

Well, they consented to be an SF0 player, right?

Number two only works if you can talk them into stalking you back afterwards, though. (I'd be game for it and think that was a cool approach, except that I'd have to turn you down on the grounds of being busy with this task to begin with.)

Actually, I have never been happy with the second part of this task.

I like the idea of somebody stalking me and then building a shrine and then finding out about it through praxis.
I would hate to stalk somebody for a week, and then know that they'd then be stalking me. I would be much happier to do this task if the last part didn't exist.
But it could exist. The player that got stalked could choose to then stalk me or not, the thing is, I'd never know. That is exciting.

I like both versions. Yours has the fun of discovering through praxis that somebody's been stalking you, and that's got its own kind of excitement. This one's got its own kind of fun in the paranoia of running around for a week thinking "hm, is this likely to turn up if I'm getting internet-stalked?" and worrying about which SF0 people are likely to betray information to which others if asked nicely.

I think the second part is important, if only because it confirms the 'consenting' part. Though, it is hard to imagine turning down a collaboration, non-consensual stalkers really are super creepy.

OK, I think it's time to be serious for a second.

I do not advocate stalking.

Stalking is bad. Very very bad.

Speaking as somebody who has been stalked for real, by a deranged woman who stole all of my clothes and made me move into my car to escape, I do not condone or support or encourage stalking.

If it's real.

This however, isn't real. The reason any of us would stalk another player is simply to complete this task, with joy and fun and happiness in their heart. I approve of such stalking. As long as you don't steal all of my clothes including my favorite Doors shirt.

In fact, inspired by my desire to be stalked for real and for fun, I have created a new task that I would more enjoy.

I think this one is fine, but I just prefer not knowing.

Yeah, the creepy traditional flavor of stalking is decidedly No Fun. The mock-creepy but kindhearted kind something like this is for? That's cool.
