      No more please... If you knew you were dreaming, than you were lucid. End of story. Yes, that means even If you didn't do what you wanted to do. IF YOU KNEW YOU WERE DREAMING, THAN IT WAS A LUCID DREAM!!!

      we might as well add that it doesnt matter how bad your recall sucked or if it was hazy or hard to remember
      If you knew you were dreaming, then you were lucid!

      sorry, for causing you guys so much trouble. I think I've only posted such things 2 times. Do you think that there is a concrete way that this problem can be solved or stopped. The reason that so many people probably post topics like that is because of a lack of knowledge. I know that the reasons I posted was because while I technically did know that I was dreaming it didn't seem like the lucids I had heard so much about. Does that mean that lucidity is subjective? a little different for every person? It seems everyone agrees that it's a problem, but how should we solve that problem. I mean I knew that a lucid by definition was being aware that you were dreaming. I'm not just making simplistic and meaningless postings. I do mean the questions that I ask. What would prompt me to ask them though if they were bad? I'm not here for post count.

      I'm just looking for a solution. Are you guys going to PM a moderator or something about this kind of thing? Should there be a home for those sort of posts or should they be deemed useless and deleted?

      They should be deemed useless and deleted. If while you were in a dream you realize you are dreaming, that's a lucid dream. If not, or if anything else happens, no, it wasn't lucid. If people don't know the difference they should do some more reading before coming on to the forums.

      well, won't people still post that kind of stuff. I won't anymore if I can help it, but the larger problem still remains. I just re-read the thread purpose post by hysteria. Are those posts technically on topic? Only if they are lucid though? It would count as a lucid experience. Do you think that we should just reiterate stuff then?

      You know, for the ones that turn out to be non-lucids?

      I think if people posted their experiances in this forum, and they were Lucid, then that's okay. However, don't post "Was I Lucid?" or topics to that ilk. Post something like, "I had a Lucid but It Really Sucked!". Every lucid dream is different, some are awesome, clear, and give you godlike abilities. Others are seconds long, don't make any sense, are hard to remember, and basicly all around sucked. The only criteria for a Lucid Dream, is that you were in fact dreaming, and you knew what happened. If you knew you were dreaming, you were lucid. If you thought you were dreaming, to a degree, you were still lucid, but probably not for long as if you don't confirm it you fall back into the stupor. And If you never even suspected that you were dreaming, at all, even if you could fly and stuff, then you WERE NOT lucid.

      Well, that about sums it up.

      Yes. Even though people SHOULD read things like this post, or others with the definition of lucid dreaming before they post, som people just won't. Now matter how many posts we make people will continue to post "Was I Lucid?" Threads.

      By the day after tomorrow none of us will be left alive. lol J.K.

      Seriously though, a section of the lucid experiances forum that is dedicated to "Was I Lucid?" posts seems like a great idea. That way we could kill two birds with one stone.

      Hold it. Major interrupt here. Anyone that wants to wander in here and have a sanity check by asking if they were lucid is more than welcome to.

      This forum is about teaching people to learn how to lucid dream and for helping people expand their abilities.

      Well I guess that&#39;s that then. lol.

      I guess it is a valid question, but all I&#39;m saying is it&#39;s one that gets asked a massive amount of times, with a very simple answer. With a small background check on the definition of lucid dreaming on the front page, anyone about to ask that question can find the answer quickly and easily.

      They have been quite a few of the "was this a lucid dream" posts. And yes if you knew you were dreaming then your lucid. But I read in a book that there are differnt lvls of lucidity, I remember one was "slight lucidity" a brief moment of knowing your dreaming and it sometimes occurs in nightmares. I forgot the other lvls but differnt dreams could trigger differnt lvls of lucidity and it could probaly get pretty complex. Maybe have the differnt levels as a sticky?

      I think that&#39;s a good idea. I have personally experianced a few different levels. But one diffculty for that would be how to classify each level.

      LD4all just has a stickied topic devoted to "Was this a LD" Maybe that&#39;s the answer?

      ...if DV already has that thread, then I must have missed it, but I think it&#39;s a good solution.

      I completely agree with Seeker on this one, even before I read his post.
      When some people have their first LD it&#39;s a big thing for them. Let them talk about it&#33;
      Where else can they talk about it without someone thinking their crazy?
      lol

      I do completely agree that they are almost a nucience, but I read them sometimes.... when I&#39;m bored... and there&#39;s no more new posts... and I accidently click on the link.

      Exactly.

      It cracks me up. Now that YOU know when you are Lucid, no one else is allowed to ask the question. That is a funny rule. These forums are here to help people, not just to satisfy you. It is a question that is asked a lot. People in glass houses should not throw stones, because perhaps we should not allow any more "I was soooo close" threads either since they are posted so often .... http://www.dreamviews.com/forum/index.php?...c=34790&hl=

      Also... some people have really confusing ones like where they are dreaming of having a lucid dream. There are different levels of "knowing" you are dreaming in a dream, it isn&#39;t always so black and white. Sometimes you are dreaming that you know, but you don&#39;t actually realize it. It can be pretty confusing.

      Alritght. So here&#39;s my final opinion. Yes I think people have a right to ask that question. They have a right to post whatever they want. But it is a nucience, and one that can easily be resolved. I like the "Was I Lucid?" sticky idea.

      When some people have their first LD it&#39;s a big thing for them. Let them talk about it&#33;
      Where else can they talk about it without someone thinking their crazy?[/b]
      I never posted my first LD but I have no idea why. I still might some day. But I definatly was crazy excited so I see what you&#39;re saying. Which is why I like the sticky idea.

      The sticky works, or there could be a message that appears in there PM box telling them about it automatically, if that&#39;s not to much trouble.

      I never posted one because I read up on it loads on the non-forum section of the site before having my first lucid. It was a pretty awesome experience though. I&#39;ll tell you all about it... .... ...

      There&#39;s no such thing as a dumb question, but they are the easiest ones to answer.

      Hahaha. Busted.

      Well, in my defense, I was a dumb kid, and that was a long time ago. I didn&#39;t even know the differance between MILd and WILD.... Alright, lame excuse. Well what I said above still stands, I just wanted to respond to that.
