My name is Eclipse. When the world is at its darkest, I shall appear!

 
Greetings, and welcome to the inquiry desk of Eclipse. Many of you have no doubt seen me out and about the Lake, and have a fairly good grasp of what I do and how I act. However, that is only a general picture of this dragon; if you find yourself to have any specific questions for me, this is the place to ask them. Of course, you may also view my thoughts in the various threads I peruse, but that can't tell you everything.
 
Here, I shall be asked questions by you. And I, in turn, shall answer them. This shall foster communication in a more productive manner than a simple topic would accomplish, as there will be noticeably less restraint.
 
To keep things organized and simple, I shall lay down some ground rules before we begin. They are as follows, in brief:
  • Regardless of anything else, all posts here must conform to Lake Valor rules, both overall and section-specific. There shall be no exceptions to this, be it on my part or yours.
  • I reserve the right to refuse to answer any question asked to me, for any reason. More often this shall apply to questions of a more personal nature, but if I discern the question to be mean-spirited, stupid, meaningless, or otherwise contrary, those are also a few examples to which I will not answer. (The most common questions of this type are about things I don't know anything about. Personal questions are also strictly off-limits.)
  • Please check the list within this topic's first post to see if your question has been asked before. There is little point in being asked and answering the same question twice. While I won't be annoyed or outright refuse to answer, I'll just state the title of the similar previous question I'd answered before.
  • I will treat all questions, and their inquirers, equally. To me, all questions have equal weight, whether asked by the lowliest of the low or the top of the pyramid - or if they're asked one-by-one or ten at a time. I have no respect of persons.
  • Though I do answer math questions, this is not the place to do so. Please go here for more information on answering math questions or dilemmas.
  • I may add, change, or remove any or all of these bullet points at any time, at my discretion, if I feel that it is necessary. (In essence, my own rules are subject to change as I wish.) Forum rules shall still remain absolute, however.
  • Below I will keep a list of all questions asked to me (and their answers) to date. I will keep them in alphabetical order, for convenience and look-up. They shall be contained in the spoiler tag directly below. (If a contraction is in the question, it's alphabetised by the two separate words, e.g. What's would be sorted as 'What is'.)
Due to the sheer magnitude of questions that have been asked of me, I've had to break them up into separate posts now.
 
For questions whose first word begins with A through I, check post #1 (this post).
For those that start with L onward, check post #7.
 

 
I believe this covers all of the pertinent points, at present. Now then... What's on your mind?

I have not even heard of it, much less seen it. (I generally do not watch movies, as a personal choice.) With a title like that, though, it certainly sounds interesting.
 
Do you have a crush on an anime/fictional character? If so, who is it?
No. I don't have crushes of any kind, real or fictional.
 
...The post editor is decidedly irksome.

I will combine both of those into a single entry, since they are closely related.

 

Have you tried garlic knots? If so, did you like them? What about cheese bread or garlic bread?

I have not heard of garlic knots before, but if they are anything like garlic bread, I believe I would like them, as I absolutely love garlic bread, whenever it is available (which, sadly for me, is not all that often). I prefer garlic bread to cheese bread, which I think is just 'okay'.

I find it odd that only one person is consistently replying, but perhaps it is because the topic is continually pushed off of the first page. Ah well, it makes little difference to me.

 

 

What's your favorite bagel? Least favorite bagel? A bagel you want to try?

I do not really like bagels very much; eating them causes me to feel queasy. I am occasionally invited to enjoy bagels with friends, but I will never go for any flavour besides 'plain'. Bagels just unsettle my stomach too much for me to eat them on a regular basis.

Do you consider yourself to be social or antisocial?

Antisocial, most certainly. Dealing with people is quite irritating, and I will gladly avoid them whenever possible. I will only put up with social interactions and gatherings because I have to. I cannot effectively deal with people if it is anything more than a one-on-one format (or, rarely, a conversation triangle).

What about forums interests you?

Absolutely nothing. There are far too many people at once, there is little true interaction, and most people on forums seem to be primarily concerned with their own self-image. Staff tend to be even more atrocious about it, though all of this is based on personal observation and having been on one forum or another for roughly 7 years in all. Simply put, I don't believe that forums actually know what they are trying to accomplish, and thus, don't actually accomplish anything useful. Thus, I find them rather irksome on the whole; I would not deal with them had I the choice.

What is your favourite theme on LV?

I'd not thought much about it, actually. I was not even aware there was an option to change the theme, as I didn't see it in the User CP, but chanced to find it at the bottom of any given page. I generally prefer the default whenever possible, but I suppose it could not hurt to view the others. After scrolling through all of the themes I believe I will settle on the Animate for a while, as a change of pace, though I would not be adverse to cycling through other themes, such as Mewtwo's Metropolis, Source, The Depths, and the default.

 

The information below this line shall not be stored in the original post, but will remain here.

 

While I am at it, I believe I can give a brief opinion on each theme as I go through it, as I am sure you may find feedback on such things useful.

 

Those I liked:

Animate - I was quite fond of the darker colors presented, and I have a fascination with space (even though the moving image at the top of the screen may not be of space, it looks much like it).

Lake Valor default - This one I like not only because it is the default (I am not sure why I have a preference for such), but it appears as though a lot of time, love, and care went into making it. It is the small things that differentiate themes that may make or break them, and this has quite a lot of those small things.

Mewtwo's Metropolis - This one I find quite astounding. It seems to be even more receptive to minute changes in the cursor than even the default theme is. The background picture is also something I like; I was a bit saddened to see most of it disappear behind the forum sections themselves! But, such is layout.

 

Those I was neutral towards:

Gaussian - Neither too bright nor too dim. I am not sure why it has the name Gaussian, though; I think of bell-shaped curves and I saw none of those.

Groudon's Grotto - An interesting volcano-based counterpart to the default. I do like the choice, though I feel the red is a bit dark, and the font is a bit too distracting. Still, I believe the good points cancel out the bad, hence why it rests at neutral to me.

Guardians - Rather plain-spoken overall. There is nothing that really catches the eye about it, but at the very least there is nothing truly negative about it.

Source - See also Guardians. I have a slight preference for this one over other neutrals, though, largely because of the choice of font. And, I don't know if this is present on other teams, but the topmost bar for the User CP follows me as I scroll. I didn't see that on other themes, but perhaps I am not as observant?

The Depths - Oriented almost the same way as Source, just very slightly different. Much of my comments on this will be the same thus.

 

Those I did not like:

Atlantis - It was not that much different from the default, in truth. The white foreground clashed more.

Dashboard - See also Atlantis, and for much the same reasons.

Kyogre's Cavern - In sharp contrast to Groudon, I found this to be very plain in comparison, which surprised me. I also noticed at the top right, where the User CP is found, the user's avatar is not seen before clicking the drop-down menu at the username, which I found was a nice touch.

Lake Valor Lite - As I do not use a smartphone to access the Internet, and my 3DS can load the default theme just fine (usually), I do not see the need for me to use this. That said, I understand its purpose perfectly well.

Valor - I am guessing that this was an older default theme, from who knows when, but I could be wrong. It's missing a background image, but it's not just that - there seems to be some kind of small 'charm' missing from it too, and I cannot place my finger on what.
