Hear yea hear yea, h e r e ' s t he N e W s!
I updated here on Friday: /347660
Basically, it's crunch for us Scholastechies which is why I haven't been around. Next time you hear from me, it might just be to announce that we've launched the beta. Yep, it's that soon. There will be some super wonky parts of it at first that I'll share with you once we launch - just know that it's very much a beta version. There's a lot more for us to do.
I'll try to catch up on all the questions. If you asked about a post that didn't make it through last week, I'll skip it because it's likely been a few days and (hopefully) has come through by now. If you still want me to check on it let me know. I should have more time this week to look into it.
@Sparky Sharing pictures is something we're really trying to figure out. There are a few roadblocks to it, like having the moderation for it. There will be a feature in Home Base that allows you to create comics and share them. While you still won't be upload your own images (it'll be a bunch of images from various book series) it's a step in the direction towards allowing uploaded images. Definitely something we'd like to have in the future.
@Dismay I think a zombie outbreak has already occured. You know dinosaurs? You know how they went extinct because of a comet? What if it was really a DINO ZOMBIE INVASION. *ahem* ANYways, it's fun to think about who you'd have on your zombie squad if a zombie outbreak did occur.
@Wizard it's possible it either got eaten by the filter or I was asked by the OP to remove it, sometimes folks will ask me to remove their posts if they accidentally posted before they were ready or something double posted. I'm afraid I can't remember if that's what happened, maybe Dellow knows.
@Twilight Depends on my mood! (Maybe that's why I like Rainwings so much.) Sometimes it's a nice deep blue, but sometimes it's a light pink/red. I used to hate pink as a kid, wonder what happened. Maybe it's the marketing for millennial pink working its way into my millennial brain.
@Brine Honestly the cutest.
@Sorrel Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh is that.....how long Kevin the Butterfly has reigned?
@Platinum I wasn't around for Candydragon so I don't really know the details, but I do know we know what they did.
@Prism is it The Arbiter?
@Nightengale p...poison??? Maybe I ask where this curiosity is coming from?? I find it an interesting factoid that appleseeds contain a super tiny amount of cyanide so I guess maybe that.
@Ocean Fair question and I hope to have an answer for you soon. This will go hand-in-hand with the update about our new moderation
@Zane i t i s a m y s t e r y
@Brine I wouldn't dare try to compete with GGaD
@Galaxian Thanks for letting me know about this. Sorry I wasn't there as it escalated. Again, you handled it extremely well I must say.
@Scientist OMG dragon soup. That is metal. I think it's the last paragraph that catching it. Man, your Science!! essays are really awesome.
@Astra I pushed it through. Same thing as last time where it ended up in an old queue where I could manually approve it.
@Andromeda I'm okay!! Thank you for checking in :)
@Dragonfire5500 I'm so glad you like the books so much! :D Yep, there is going to be some new WoF game stuff coming soon.
@Key I believe it's catching "gunslinger" even though that's been in your sig for a long time. We made some updates to the filter about "non-fantasy violence" references (includes references to guns) somewhat recently - have you tried to change your siggy in the past few weeks other than this instance?
Imagine a universe completely built around food. Different continents are based on different food groups. The junk food continent has rivers of soda, which are filled with donut boats, and the trees are cotton candy. The veggie world has broccoli trees and cucumber-infused water lakes. What land would you join? Would the inhabitants of each land be friends...or foes?
Wasabi (very apt nickname for irrestibablesushi) has started a forumfic called "Of Humanoids and Bots" about a future Earth where people have uploaded their minds into humanoid robots: /354089
Cormorant has an idea for a choose your own adventure-style story, and wants your opinions on whether it should be Warriors or Wings of Fire based: /354169
@Pluto, I urge you to seek support outside the forums from an adult you trust or peers/classmates. I understand wanting support online, but this is primarily a place for role playing and discussing books. There's a limit to how much help you'll be able to receive here. I'm going to ask that you do not share the medical details of your siblings on the forums any longer, as it's growing out of hand and you haven't been respecting the need of others to take a break as I requested. Instead, take some time to enjoy the forums for what they're meant to be and RP or write stories with your friends, believe me - those activities can really help in times like this.
@Vellichor While not taking things at face-value is fine, I think there's a way you could've phrased that better.
