    Halloween icons suddenly accessible to members, Pele?

  3. It should be alright. As long as members are having fun, that's what matters the most, in my opinion. If Veo wants to be a fairy princess, she sure ought to be a fairy princess ! Her rank shows so that everyone knows what Region she's in, so all good, really. I hope she gets to keep her icon but I suppose it is an admin call.

    The Halloween icons should not be available, but it seems that for one strange reason or other they are. If they are available at any time, I think it undermines the whole reason for having rank icons and those meant for special occasions. I don't know when the issue is going to be fixed; but we already told one of the new members who had found the setting that these icons were not meant for everyday use. I'm afraid it means that you'll just have to switch back to the usual icon, Veo. Otherwise you wouldn't even care any more if you received a special icon if you can choose any you want yourself.

    Err. I suspect Issy has been kidnapped by real life monster. We should set up a search and rescue mission.

    *ish lured in by old post* Ahh yes...the early years. Sorry guys, Pele is right, RL snared me..sorry.

    Hmm..it would be interesting to do a rp where instead of having to do so many lines you have to keep it within so many lines...Bear, I know that's close to impossible for you so we might make an exception, like you get two extra lines of post or something...just so you don't lose your mind.

  14. Veo and I need you in the Chithing Festival, Issy (was just going to RP the bullriding until you came back but now you're back) ! I'll work on the update for Aileen's quest, too, because we need Kelter, Mourgan, and Nelladel. Jeez, that would be so nice, how considerate...make it four . My mind was lost ages ago .

    That's actually an interesting idea... we could really do something like that - it'll be good training for newbies who could focus on the quality rather than the quantity, and for oldies who could challenge themselves to shorten their posts once in a while...

  16. In all seriousness though, my roleplaying posts just wind up being long because I like being intensely creative and painstakingly trying to write well. I want the content I put out to be enjoyable enough to read. I would do my best with shortening posts only for Veo if she asks. I wouldn't mind RP'ing in that kind of short response thing though just for fun.

    Issy! I had something non Bear related to ask! But now I can't remember it!

    I'm down for some shorter posts! Quick and easy, more fun when I don't have to spend hours at it, killing my poor hands on this dumb tablet screen.

    I think it was Mourgan and Thorion related, or marketplace related, I guess I should have pm'd you about it before. Oh well.

    I miss Maldir lots; been spending hours in the archives (and complaining that can't get past page 1). And I think I understand why he applied such alienation tactics, and I must admit it must have worked because the intensity of grief is not what I expected, mostly just a feeling of emptiness and an onslaught of memories. However, I doubt anything I might feel compares to the loss his family and close friends experience.

    And what's all this Relic stuff, anyway? Should I get my sword ready? :P

    By the way, Issy, you still use skype sometimes?

    Today is the first day my eyes don't burn from crying. But there's still a few hours left, so we'll see. I keep remembering things, and then wanting to ask him if he remembers too. Or thinking of a plot and wanting to rush and ask what he thinks. It's also around the same as the anniversary of the deaths of a couple other people I miss, and all their birthdays. And, there the waterworks go again. I hurt.

    I do have one idea of a way to honor him, could you help me figure out how and where to start a poetry slam event (I dont know if slam or contest are the right words, theres no winner, just sharing )in hisbhonor? His 50th birthday would be this Thursday, the 13th.

    Hmmm. Revive his poetry thread in the Cottage with it? Though... the coding is really messed up in there. Or in OOME? Or even facebook?

    What about MT, where he was poetry captain? The cottage could be good too. Not in his thread, but it's own event. We can share some of his, between others. It could be IC or OOC.

    MT could do as well. What do you think he would have appreciated more? Wherever it is opened, it would probably help to notify people elsewhere too, since they just might not see it.

    edit: Your post in MT made me cry... There went my commitment not to let the tears fall no matter what.

    I cried writing it, thus the quick ending, but I felt it fit for them. I still have to work on Veowyn's for Maldir. That one is going to be harder. And I have to leave the actual causes of death open, nothing I can think of is worthy.

    I'll work on the poetry event, and decide where to put it later, and then when it's up, I'll tell OOME, and Facebook, and the other places, and resurrect his poetry thread with a note too. I will try to get it up before the 13th (since that's also my father's birthday I might not get plaza time that day)

    It does seem like a very fitting closure, very heartfelt. I would like to write a closure as well, tears or not; but I suppose we should have something common to refer to in terms of Maldir. Would something military related not seem honourable to you: he did fight bravely against the illness as well...?

    The poetry plans sound excellent, Veo.

    Meh, I'd probably be better at writing a short story instead of poetry. Not sure I can come up with something better than that haiku. Maybe...

  47. Seems like Miranda's servants need a break from cleaning up Bear's mess, Issy. I'll PM you back tonight!

    Pele, Veo said in her OP we can share the poetry of writers if we credit them, that's why I used Tennyson. You could write a haiku about sorrow although that form of poetry is used mostly for nature.
