#355849 Community Month's Name Game

Posted by Eclipse on Yesterday, 06:17 PM

Less than 24 hours remaining before the deadline to submit your character's name! I have names in from almost all of you, but there are still a few that haven't. Please don't forget before time is up! (If I don't have a name from you by then, you won't be entered into the guessing stage of the event.)


#355821 keep one/ change one

Killer rabbit.


#355705 Congrats Fizzysoda on VIP!

Posted by Eclipse on 19 February 2017 - 08:56 PM

And now you no longer need save up PokéPoints to acquire the fancy rank. Now you can use those points to stockpile on treasures and other shop items, eh?

How do you feel about the whole ordeal? Relieved? Happy? Those and more?


#355681 The Newbie Lounge

Posted by Eclipse on 19 February 2017 - 06:36 PM

Yeah, we had a lot of people spirited over here from fanfiction.net. It's both rather staggering and totally cool, bringing a bunch of potential friends all together from the same location.

After only 2 days we already have a favourable impression in your mind? We must be doing something right.


#355679 Farewells and Returns

Posted by Eclipse on 19 February 2017 - 06:35 PM

Well that was a short lived leave... I left, but it just wasn't the same I missed you all too much ;-; even if I was only gone for a while, it seems like so much has changed!

Ah, crap, now I feel like a heel because I meant to keep in contact with you even after you took your break from LV, and I never did.
I'm well and truly happy to see you back again. We need to catch up sometime.


#355526 Signature of the Month: Fantasy

Posted by Eclipse on 18 February 2017 - 08:00 PM

Fantasy signatures? That, my friend, is right up my alley. As dragons are my speciality, this was an event I was really looking forward to seeing. However, ideas have been rather slow to come lately, which is why I'm posting my entry this late.

From my perspective, my entry is fairly standard fare, but others may view it differently.

(I might edit it later on during the month, if I feel it can be solidly improved upon in some way. I believe it can, but for the time being I'd like to get my foot in the door. If I edit my entry, I'll edit this post accordingly.)


#354222 Happy Birthday, Darkness!

Posted by Eclipse on 13 February 2017 - 09:35 AM

Happy birthday to senior member Darkness!

Haha, he called you old!

Age aside, I hope your day is absolutely wonderful! Tell me how it went afterwards; I'd love to hear from you.


#353700 Things from a bygone era you remember

Posted by Eclipse on 10 February 2017 - 09:19 AM

Wait, I've just remembered one more thing I remember from years gone by...

Fax machines.

Now, I know that may sound foreign to a lot of you people, so I'll explain it in brief by saying fax machines were the precursor to email attachments in that they were used to send documents and attachments via phone lines, usually to businesses of some kind.

It's an odd case because fax machines are still used in some professions, particularly those that deal with legal or otherwise sensitive information, but the prevalence of e-mail has caused their usage to wane dramatically.

In other news, whoo, 2222 posts.


#353236 What are your best qualities?

Posted by Eclipse on 08 February 2017 - 09:29 AM

It's tricky to formulate a concrete or precise answer for this, because the definition of 'qualities' is left deliberately vague. Thus, I fear that I'll end up noting things about myself that weren't what this topic was asking for.

So I apologise in advance if I inadvertently do that.

I am thankful for my mind, first and foremost. I keep it running frequently and efficiently, I file knowledge in it often, and I'm often reliant on its storage, that I've drawn upon time and time again. I jokingly refer to my brain as something akin to a computer, though in practise that's what it manifests closest to, unusually. This most often comes out in my choice of vocabulary I put forth in posts, and it's not that I intentionally try to sound lofty; these are just the words and sentence structure choices that come quickest to mind.

I like that I can accurately convey a personality, thought, or mood via my actions, without being mistaken or misunderstood as something else. For example, people will know when I'm being serious, when I'm joking around, when I'm waxing philosophical, or even when I'm harsh. I like that, as I don't like my actions or mood being mistaken for something completely different.

Other than that, everything else about me and my persona is tied to other people and my interactions with them, so I can't really say much beyond that about myself.


#352847 Typing & Grammar

Posted by Eclipse on 06 February 2017 - 08:47 AM

To how high a standard do you hold proper grammar/spelling online? Do you think less of someone who does not?

Very much so.

On chatrooms it doesn't matter as much, because the conversations happen in real time, and spoken words are always a lot sloppier than written speech, so I expect real-time chat posts to be a bit more lax when it comes to the particulars of grammar and punctuation.

But in any written medium - whether it be a forum post, a work of fiction, an essay or other assignment, a written correspondence - it doesn't matter. People can always put in the time and effort to make their posts, works, letters, emails, or what have you look as good as it can be, so there really is no excuse for subpar grammar and sentence structure. I tend to be stricter on the grammar more than the spelling, because there are times when people legitimately don't know how to spell something, either because of a more complicated word or homonym confusion (or perhaps something else, but those are the main two).

But if I see insufficient punctuation in a written post of any kind, I'll either ignore it or leave. I've seen posts without commas and full stops before (or even only 1 or 2 in the midst of an entire paragraph), and they bother me so much that I can't even read past the first true comma placement. I have held this stance for almost a decade (if not more) and it's not about to change any time soon.


#352743 Hey everyone

Posted by Eclipse on 05 February 2017 - 09:37 PM

So, what happened to the first 26 BlackKyurems? I'm going to assume that they all fought to the death, and you were the only survivor.

A freshman, eh? In high school or in college? There's a noticeable difference, even though here it may not be that important.

There's a fairly large age range of people here, so even though the average age of a member here is around 20 (though it may be closer to 19 now), you really shouldn't have any problem acclimating. There may be a little bit of friendly teasing* that goes on now and then, but it's all in good fun and never intended to harm.

Do make yourself at home. After you've been here for a few days, I'd like to know how you find this place, or what you think about the people here.

*(I'm the only one who does this)

Pretty sure that's Axel (Axl?) from Kingdom Hearts.

#351321 Break Into Your Own House

Posted by Eclipse on 02 February 2017 - 10:45 AM

I don't have one for myself (I carry my keys around everywhere), but I do have a story for this of what happened to a friend of mine.

A friend of mine was asked to house-sit for a family while they were off on vacation, so while they were gone, he invited us all over for a movie night there. (Don't worry - we're all adults.) He had left the house key somewhere - either inside that house, back at his own house, or somewhere. So he does the most insane thing I've ever seen.

He goes to the house next door (where he was staying), goes upstairs to his own room, climbs out the window onto the roof, goes over to the fence between the two houses, jumps into the air across to the other roof, tries to get in via the upstairs window (it was unlocked), into a child's bedroom, and then came downstairs and unlocked the house from the inside.

It was the most convoluted and hilarious way to start a movie night I've ever seen in my life - and I may never see anything like that again.
