  2. It's actually happening to several pages right now - I can't access my scroll or the Trading Hub since they both load into an error page.

     

    If you use Firefox, it could be an error caused by the browser (as an earlier thread mentioned). Which is just more proof that Firefox Quantum is the worst browser in the history of the world, despite Mozilla's claims it's an "upgrade" (it's not).


  3. I discovered a small problem. The progeny link on a dragon's page doesn't work properly if the mate is deceased. I own a dragon with a deceased father, and when I go look at the mother's page, my dragon isn't in the progeny at all.

    Is this supposed to happen, or is that a bug?


  4. Book Number: 1

    Number Of Pages: 200

    Book Title: Ginga Densetsu Weed: Orion, volume 19

    Author: Yoshihiro Takahashi

    Summary: This series focuses on dog packs spread all over Japan, and every volume jumps between the groups. In volume 19, main villain Masamune is still in Hiroshima, protagonist Orion's alliance is traveling to his location from Kouga, and we are introduced to major character Andy in Iwate.


  5. I'm looking for five Neglected eggs to view so I can fill my encyclopedia entry. You can PM me about it - I've signed the Anti-Viewbomb Oath. Thank you in advance!

     

    I have quite a few dragons myself, owning nearly every breed on the entire site - so in case you're missing entries, feel free to check them out. The scroll has been sorted by breed so it's quite easy to navigate to boot. Happy hunting!


  6. I'm reading two manga series at the moment. I'm halfway done with Tokyopop's release of B'tX (a scifi series by Masami Kurumada) and with Ginga Densetsu Weed: Orion (dog manga by Yoshihiro Takahashi). I'm really excited since March's Orion release will be volume 17 and a new character called Andy will be introduced in it. That dog makes me proud as a Finnish fangirl - you see, Takahashi created that entire dog as a tribute to his Finnish fandom. Andy is Finnish, and named after Antti Valkama (the CEO of the Finnish publisher releasing Orion).. Andy is also the nephew of a very popular character called John. ...Which means Takahashi retconned John into a Finnish character as an extra tribute. How many foreign fandoms can say that? 8D


  7. Ooo, the challenge is back! I'mma try and read a few things~

     

    ...So does that manga/comic book rule mean a single volume of 500 pages? I've honestly never seen a manga volume that long, and I read a lot - the longest manga omnibus I've seen is a little over 300 pages, and 500-page ones are unheard of. Like, I'd love to use some manga volumes as material for this challenge, but it's impossible when most volumes out there are around 200 pages (they wouldn't even make 500 if you used two of them). Or does that mean all the manga volumes are counted together as a single entity? Since there's this manga series that has 21,000 pages across 105 volumes (and counting since it's not finished yet), and I intend to re-read it.


  8. That reminds me, I never really listed the actual cities I've been to.

    @Beldarius: Wow, you sure travelled a lot ! Were all the trips equally great, or did you have favourites ?

     

    My favorite trip was my history class trip to the Baltic countries and Poland (our main destination was Auschwitz). It was the first time I'd been abroad without my parents and it was so cool - we were traveling in a two-decker bus, and each student had two seats so we could sleep if we wanted to (one day we sat in that bus for 13 hours nonstop). We saw the fire-breathing dragon statue in Krakow, went inside the old royal palace on Wawel Hill, touched the huge cathedral bell (there was some legend associated with it), ate genuine Krakowska outside at midnight (teacher treated us), took part in the March of the Living 2006 (the only Finnish class that year, plus one of the few non-Jewish), ate Jewish food in the Kazimierz district... in Lithuania, my friend and I debated about humanity and nature on the bank of the Neris River... met a live bat in the 9th Forte (a Lithuanian fortress). Our Estonian bus drivers got us lost in the middle of a Polish village - passed through the center of the village three times, and each time an amused old man on a bicycle started waving at us. And finally, at the Latvia-Estonia border, we started watching the truck drivers on the opposite lane. One of them was a Russian leaning on his truck's horn and yelling something from the window. One of my classmates hollered "He seems like the type of guy with a baseball bat under his seat!"... 10 seconds went by, and the dude got out of his car carrying one. XD I haven't experienced anything like that ever since.

     

    Other trips that I remember well are London in 2008 (I was 20) - met a restaurant owner who looked like Charlie Chaplin and could walk like him. Went to Portobello Road market (which I hated because crowds)... my favorite things were the Charing Cross bookstores, Westminster Abbey and seeing Geoffrey Chaucer's tomb, driving on Tower Bridge, seeing unicyclists at Covent Garden (and the peacock installation), the crypt shop of St. Paul's Cathedral...

     

    And Florence in 2013. The tour of Tuscany we took on the second-to-last day was spectacular - drove by bus through the Tuscan countryside, visiting Siena, Pisa (yes, I've seen the tower) and San Gimignano (medieval town with huge towers).

     

    Oh, and Portugal for three reasons: a pirate ship cruise (where "pirates" took my dad below decks, out of every tourist on board), a bus trip through a cork wood forest to Sagres Point ("the cape at the end of the world") and a waterpark show with sea lions and humans playing pirates. ...I still hope to see a show like that again one day. Those sea lions were smart (one of them stole a map from another human's pocket, and then pulled a raft with his human "partner" on it across the water).

     

    ...Yikes, that's a lot of text.


  10. Finally updated my passport. Now I've added a list of cities I'm missing, to make it easier for everybody to check. XD

     

    Of course, I'll always offer free tickets to people who want them. I bred Nicosia and Torshavn today - only Nicosia made a ticket (which went to Mow).

     

    EDIT: I'm kind of amused that the cities I've travelled include half of the actual countries I've been to. Cyprus, Estonia, Finland (home), Germany, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Spain and Vatican. Still missing Denmark, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey and the UK. Travelled to all of them by the time I turned 20, so it was nearly one country per year (plus several extra trips to Sweden and Estonia, and one more to Italy).
