This idea, which I'll awkwardly paraphrase to "lets make some substantial OC", together with having the people who are already here participate more in terms of posting their interests and commenting with responses, are my two preferred routes at the moment.

Wasn't there that Konsent program that we were working on that would allow us to have direct/consensus democracy on the internet that Raddle was supposed to be working on? What happened to that?

The developer of it quit. Though, I think was also proposed by someone here.

I am incredibly interested in producing a journal as of late. My creativity is flowing and have been brainstorming a lot.

If we merely just spread the knowledge of Raddle around we will attract more trolls than people who could be inter-beneficial in such a community. To show that something beyond just another link-sharing community (which is why I do love Raddle, it's a great source of information that interests me) is possible, we could begin actively creating something, anything, to express the reality we wish to see, we will find many more who can help grow this place into something.

And as cliche as it has been made to sound in many ways consciousness truly creates out reality, in at least it's ability to manipulate latent 'energies' just waiting to play against each other.

I'm interested to hear more about this journal idea, as well as the ways you find yourself being creative at the moment.

I'd be willing to explore a creative project with other raddle users. I'm not sure what would be best for us - we did struggle to maintain a reading group and that has generally been a good measure of the capacity of any group for me.

A reading group is still a very passive thing to work on as it leaves very little room for individuals to be unique. We are just talking about what other people have said after all. I'm pretty sure there are plenty of folks here who want their words and ideas heard compared to talking about many other authors who died long ago.

As for my creativity I moved away from my hometown and toxic environment and things are better than they've been in a long time. I've had less time spent dissociating and am reading and writing again and also working on getting more artwork to the forefront of my life.

However, with reading groups in mind, I have thought about making subs devoted to certain texts where you could find links to copies and even critiques of said texts with plenty of open room for people to seek discussion if they so choose.
