Toph -- If by Veok you mean Raven, then my answer remains the same:

I have no skin in the dragon resolution game. That's y'all's baby, and I'm not going to jump in, especially now that y'all are so close to resolution (I think? Haven't been able to read the IC thread on account of new forum-ness).

RaVeoken, :P

 

Well, Forgotten, I figured it would be a little odd to do a spit-take over the admission of the death of Pruinus, then just go back to talking about the nature of Power :P

As for what changed my mind... well, the fact that is has been 4 days and nothing seems to have changed is... annoying, but really the final straws for me are the deletion of the Haven (not cool) and the organization of the threads in order of creation date.  LoC NEEDS to be on the first page for new players to find us, and burying us pages and pages back... well, we have trouble enough as it is trying to find people to join us. 

Wizards?! What the ____!!

I can't post in the IC!! Every time I go to the page it logs me out, and every time I log in it takes me away from the page!!!

If this thing doesn't let me post within 20 minutes, I'm writing my IC post here.

That Venting sblock is the best thing I've seen all week :D

500 post mark complete. I'd be all excited and everything if I wasn't so tired and fed up with Wizards...

So here's my celebration:

Well, would you look at that? Seems the threads are now organized by timeframe of the last post rather than starting date. A welcome change.

Okay.  Better.

my fond divine friends, and gods(esses). I hate to say it, but I think due to the pain and frustration of the new forums (that hurt my head everytime I look at it) I'm going to be moving to less painful pastures. Where I'll find myself I don't know, but I swear I think WotC had been reading this particular game and decided to recreate the forums as Azgo would. Painful, confusing, and mind-seering. I can't find anything. I can't track anything. I got lucky finding this particular thread. With my home, the pbp haven on life support, this thread is finalizing, rl taking over and not in a good way, and so much more that have gone wrong wizards you mucked this one up bad....  I can still be reached via pm (I hope?) I wish you all the very best.

Now I must go. The glaring insanity of the forums is messing with my head. Good luck and game on.

I am both selfish and chaotic. I value self-gratification and control; I want to have things my way, preferably now. At best, I'm entertaining and surprising; at worst, I'm hedonistic and violent.

Check in every once in a while... we're likely all moving.  We'll keep you posted (or try to... stupid forums) as to where we end up.

Yeah, don't vanish Joran. We have plans :D

Also, that's pretty generous of you. "Upgrade" is not the word i would use.

Baby steps. They also fixed the CSS on the "first undread" button and removed the empty 1/3 div when viewing forum topics.

Still to handle:

 - Enter = paragraph return. Stahp!

 - No page navigation at top of page.

 - No way to set the number of posts per page.

 - Quotes need to be visually distinct from normal messages.

 

(And for the record "Save" instead of "Post" is a stupid change)

So... how's Germany? Oder Deutschland?

To answer your question, Forgotten, I've been told that if you edit the post, there is a delete button near the bottom. It seems to be hit or miss if it actually appears though.

Hah, checked my email. They removed the avatar and my post about it being removed the first time. Apparently for the acronym I used involving 'WT". So yeah, a silly little internet acronym is why we have a moderator in here deleting posts and removing my avatar pic.

And I apologize for the triple post, but the edit button is giving me errors right now.

Okay, I was wondering what was going on with posts being deleted :D

 

I'm here... its taking me a while to get settled in, and I'm pretty tired from jetlag, but I should be posting again soon.

Aller Anfang ist schwer. Take your time.

Can't tell if Aller is incorrect, ist is incorrect, or Anfang is doing some crazy anti-pluralization stuff, where Aller is actually the singular conjugation.

I don't understand it either. At first I thought it would be "sind", but the expression is Aller Anfang ist schwer. I did dubious double checking to make sure. Look it up if you're curious.

Perhaps I am wrong. Toph might be able to shed some light...

Perhaps this LoC should be ended unofficially at this time... It has had a good, long life. If Toph can post only once every few days, that could take a lot of time; time that could be spent readying up for the next LoC and our exodus (I know nobody is calling it that, but i really adore that word. So... mystical...).

Whoa, Whoa.

I'm only gone till next friday :P

Posting now...

That said, Raven... planning to post anytime soon? :D

It was less about when you were gone till and more about the fact you haven't posted in about five/six days. It just seems a little unfair to continue our irregular game of 2/3/4 (seems to vary) when we could be setting up grander stages. But if you're around, I'll stick around to finish it.

Although we need Raven to finish this all off as well

Raven has made it very clear that he has nothing to do with the dragon game, and the fight with Tasoe seems to have been postponed untill our conversation is finished. There are other things to post on however...

 

Also, what's up with "Aller Anfang ist schwer"? Shouldn't it be plural?

Aller/Alles (depends on dialect) Anfangen sind schwer, is how I would put it: 'all beginnings are hard,' right?  Angfang would be singularld, so 'all' before it doesn't necessarially work.  Jeder (every) Anfang ist schwer would work fine, though.

 

That said, three more suns to go, Raven!  

Still ending with the Zizu, yes?

Yes.

So, uh. Good news; I'm all caught up on the IC thread.

Bad news: this new forum still sucks for all kinds of navigation. Specifically, I can't seem to find a way to search the thread for my previous posts, nor can I find a link anywhere on my profile to my latest posts.

So expect a post from me once I sort out where "me" is.

 

*laughs*

Well, yeah.  This thing is a whole bunch of... silly.

 

Anyways, back from a weekend of travelling... while travelling.  My wife declared at one point that she thought it would be fun to order from a menu in french and, in doing so, finally put to use the french class she took in high school...  so my aunt and uncle decided to drive us to france for the weekend.  The Strasbourg cathedral is... something else.

Anyways, there was no internet at our hotel, so... no posting.  Getting on that... now.

Just like the French to lack internet access for (insert your nationality/ethnicity here) tourists. That's interesting though, that you can just drive to other countires on the weekend. I always thought of traveling between countires as a large, complicated trip. I guess over in Europe its a lot more akin to traveling between the states. Just a few hours...

Yep.  It was pretty awesome.  My wife was THRILLED.

 

 

I like the Cantorix ending.  I'm planning a little something special with the White Dragon Stuck In A World Of Eternal Heat as well

The time is nigh. It feels.. almost alien, this LoC coming to a close. It felt like we only started two months ago. But here we are 7-8 months later...

...

Wow. That was sobbering. And I'd be lying if I didn't say it was a little depressing.
