Basically, you make your own house (it's called a server and in my case, it's a fantasy holding, with a court), and you can go visit other people's houses if you want. You don't have to, and you don't see what other folks are doing if you don't want to. You aren't assaulted by ads, you interact with who you want, and you can make your own little home literally anything you want it to be.
I have styled mine after a fictitious hold, with a court, focussed mostly on writing currently. I'm hoping to build a community of readers; with a support group for mourning your favourite fictional characters that may have passed, a place for book recommendations, and and open forum for getting feedback on any particular piece of writing you're working on, or to get help with something related to a story you're working on. Eventually, I'd like to start a monthly book club, and we can meet in my hall's library to discuss the books. That, I expect, will be far down the line.
I think I will also start a university section, just in case anyone wants to join me as I learn Welsh.
I don't expect this disord will take off at all, but feel free to join me there if you want. Here is the link to my holding, Iddersmarch. Feel free to join, and let me know if you're one of the folks who wants to learn Welsh, so I can grant you access to that part of the server.
It's a bit sparse right now, I'm still figuring it out.
Right, I have to go now.
