I think worldbuilding is a perfectly acceptable dumb hobby to have, so long as you're keeping it to hobby levels and not, like, "I am the next Tolkein, only with dickgirls instead of elves."  There ARE a few settings where people are actually into consuming worldbuilding-- tabletop RPGs being the big one-- but mostly the only people who give a shit about your lore on its own are you and the sockpuppet accounts you made.

Like, sometimes you just wanna sit there and make up an entire goofy religion that doesn't have to do with anything and doesn't matter.

Unless wanking counts as an artform, I don't think any of these people have any intention of finishing a work.

I guess technically it's a generative process...

If you wanted to make a decent version of r/worldbuilding you would have to answer two questions at the start of any post: What kind of work is this project going to be when it's finished, and how does whatever you're asking about contribute to that final work.

Worldbuilding is a compelling trap for amateur creators  because it feels like productive activity without having to deal with any of the agony that comes with producing a finished work.

First of all, I'm a person who really enjoys worldbuilding as an activity, but remain heavily of the "form follows function" philosophy when it comes to that sort of stuff. Basically what that means is that you come up with a broad idea for a setting, and then flesh out the details as they become necessary for the story/comic/tabletop game you're building the world for. If you don't do that you end up like the people featured in this episode, who spend all of their time working out the logistics of nonsense bullshit no one will ever care about.

I don’t think these people actually want to write anything. I think they just daydream a lot and they think that anyone who daydreams a lot is Creative and therefore An Author In The Making. So they fantasize about how they’ll be asked questions about the deep lore of their worlds when they go to a convention one of these days, and how people will be super excited to hear about the details of their magic system.

What they ought to be doing is recognizing that everybody daydreams a lot and that daydreaming doesn’t make you an author or even a potential author unless you actually want to sit down and write a story.
