  1. I think arse is acceptable since there's already a dragon with that name... @purpledragonclaw opinion? Also beer is fine.
  2. This is not my jurisdiction, but please keep it civil. Calling others names will not be tolerated. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and shouldn't be disrespected.
  3. Since there is a new thread now, I'll close this.
  4. I'm sick, I have staph infection on my face, I have sores all in my mouth so I can't eat, AUBURN BEAT ALABAMA (though we have a second chance to own them), and Pokemon is going to Switch and I can't afford a Switch. Cries. I'M SO ANGRY. Plus my bf can't come over bc tequila is more important than me. Go figure.
  5. Descriptions back down to 1. (Posted this in the wrong thread initially bc I wasn't paying attention hah).
  6. 3 uncommons = CB Silver? Or no? (Green Copper, Paper, Aeon)? I'm not expecting it to go through, but it was worth a shot. vv What does that mean. Not enough or too much? I haven't traded in so long.
  7. If someone repeatedly spams the description queue without changing anything or reading the guidelines, I kill the dragon. That's what 2nd warning means. Please listen to mods in the description queue or take it to the Description force thread. It doesn't mean you'll be banned. I'll use a different word than "warning". Just clarifying that it takes a LOT of spamming to make me do that so don't worry about it! @SingularSingularity, I've approved many of your descriptions; you don't need to worry. I think you have a firm grasp of the guidelines now and your descriptions are great.
  8. @Yhme omg I just laughed so hard that's brilliant Nice codes!
  9. Yeah he is gonna have to wait a while. (Also will enrage when I have the heart to kill something).
  10. I don't know the context, so I'm not sure. It sounds okay to someone who's never seen that movie. @jerzeeshadow there were so many that a list was unnecessary. When you have 9 pages of them with dozens and dozens of names that, quite frankly, made me queasy, that's when your naming privileges get wiped rather than having a couple dragon deaths. Very very few people have had this action taken against them, and it's irreversible. If you have any specific questions about it, please PM me. We're not going to address anything publicly as it is YOUR business. If you wanted a list, all you had to do was ask.
  11. Funny Sex can be interpreted multiple ways imo. "The funny sex" "The gentler sex" etc. It could be referring to one's physical sex. Sexy Fun implies a sex act. At least that's how I read it.
  12. My Flamingo is High is fine. Funny Sex is fine, sexy fun is eh. Sexy fun time was more inappropriate tbh. @purpledragonclaw what do you think? I mean the site is PG-13. If you can imagine your 13 year old daughter/son reading something, and you would rather she/he not be exposed to the language or concept, it's probably not okay.
  13. @purpledragonclaw I'm okay with this? I have a chicken named Poledancer. I also think Weeping and Sore Privates is questionable and I'd maybe steer clear of that. Otherwise, everything else is fine. Basically anything that suggests doing inappropriate acts, referring to them, or referring to partaking in anything illegal is off limits. Naming AFTER drugs is fine, implying the illegal usage of drugs isn't. ETA: Something like "Shooting Up After School Lol" or "Abusing Prescription Pillz" basically stuff that could maybe be really hard for someone to hear that struggled with these types of things before. Just use your discretion, really. And if you have a question, posting here is fine.
  14. Ah okay. That's clever. I didn't see it in the queue; I just read it here. Both were probably me. I probably ran across it when I approved the other 20,000 descriptions and was moving very quickly. After reading it a couple days ago, I found it sufficient. Gotta break a couple eggs to make an omelet; I probably made tons of mistakes when I was trying to kill the queue. Short descriptions aren't bad, but I usually listen to the comments, and if several people suggest that it is a bit too short, I go along with the consensus.
  15. I usually don't accept descriptions that are narratives like this one. Also, usually when a character in a book thinks, the text is placed in italics, or it is separated from the sentence. As there is no italics, I would suggest putting it in quotes. It is clever, though! Perhaps try something without as much dialogue. It's easier to follow without it. Also, I don't understand what "She woke up when he mentioned cookies, but whatever he was talking about was most definitely not baked goods" means. What else would it be other than cookies? Is Cerith the dragon's name? The Cerith? What is a Cerith? In this case, I think the dialogue is okay, but this is a bit hard to follow. Maybe make the following changes: This is a cute description indeed.
  16. Please: Use the search feature before creating a new topic to make sure you are not recreating an already created topic. Look for the correct section to place a topic in before creating your topic. Read the pinned topics to make sure that any questions you have are not already answered. If you do not understand why this topic has been closed in this manner, feel free to contact me.
  17. Actually, there is a topic for this! Lagie has run this thread for a while now, and we should definitely bring it back. Feel free to post your groups here: This thread went through changes once the queue was emptied out, so now it's 1 post per player and you can share your description groups. I'm going to close this since the thread already exists.
  18. Yeah, if ya'll are ever in doubt, check out my Sunsongs.
  19. I have a couple sexy names. Sexy isn't inherently bad. Sexy Good Time, like Starscream said, implies inappropriate things.
  20. I quit rejecting descriptions for dead dragons because they're dead, since I know that sometimes it doesn't show as an undead. Don't worry! Also, everyone bear with me. Queue is at about 450, but I just got on holiday break so I can tackle this after work in my free time.
  21. Thank you @QueenErica and @Marie19R. That means a lot to hear that. My roommate suggested I contact her therapist who charges $50 a session, but I'll probably hold off until I have time to work more hours. I really need to have a bit of spending money for Christmas this year. My parents have always been supportive, but I don't know if it's their conservative nature (?) but they've always been highly against therapy. It would honestly be so refreshing to even talk to a licensed professional. The most they did was take me to my regular doctor when I was a junior in high school for anxiety, and she prescribed me Buspar. It was okay, but I found it hard to do anything while taking it. Now I would love to have something like that to bring me out of my panic attacks. My dad basically worded it over the phone has "Are you out of your mind? You're just going to have to get over it. They're just trying to get more money out of you, you're smarter than that. You have nothing to worry about. You can't afford that right now." and I could hear my mom yelling in the background "She thinks she needs therapy? Oh my god " When I was going through a lot, and I was on the buspar, my dad told me he didn't like me taking medication for anxiety (probably stemming from my mom's stint with prozac), so I came up with my own coping methods that simply don't work anymore. I just have a hard time seeing my problems as valid. I have everything I've ever needed, I'm privileged beyond belief, born with a silver spoon. I live in a lovely town and go to a wonderful university, and I shouldn't have a worry in the world. But I'm all messed up. A lot of the things I've gone through, I like to second guess that they actually even happened because sometimes when I tell people, they don't believe me or they don't understand. The bullying hurt bad. I went to a private religious school with a class of around 30 people. I was branded the ugly girl and no one would talk to me, and if I said anything I was dismissed. I couldn't ever dream of even dating someone. And I'm not ugly at all, but I just accepted it. It's given me a warped sense of myself. I've had things said to me that I still can't believe a human being could say to another. I have a lot of things buried. And that's not even getting into my first serious relationship. The hospital sent me to the university health center, and the health center sent me to a concussion research clinic. My dad seemed to not understand the connection between a head wound and being referred to therapy to assess any emotional problems/irritability/depression/anxiety that I've been experiencing along with it. I'm very sorry to hear about your mono, Marie19R. I've heard it's the worst of the worst. Those sound exactly like my symptoms. The murderous rage has always been there though for me. I've learned to control it for the most part. I have pretty serious anger issues. I've cried every day since the accident over NOTHING. Just panicking over nothing. I cry and flinch whenever my boyfriend even tries to give me a hug and I don't know why. (He has never done anything to hurt me EVER). My brain shuts down when people ask me questions or ask me to remember things or whenever I'm confronted with a minor problem. I get random stabbing headaches or random pressure headaches behind my eyes or in my temples. My boyfriend says I've been acting very different. That counseling center sounds absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately, CAPS (the free counseling service for my university) has a horrible track record of reporting students to the authorities if they speak about underage drinking or minor drug usage. (Not that either of those issues I've dealt with but are VERY common in university life), but it makes me feel like they don't really care. I was stalked once at the university for a couple weeks, and the Equal Opportunity Office basically told me I was lying after several girls (whom I didn't know were experiencing the same problem) came forward about the same guy. The guy from EOO told me over the phone "He said he was under the influence of drugs and that none of this ever happened, so I think that you should close your case." I no longer trust my university in any sensitive aspect. I would love to go to a neurologist but there's no way I can afford it. I'm already dealing with a $7,000 hospital bill (my insurance paid $300) just for being admitted, having a CT scan, and getting staples. Thank you both, I no longer feel alone. It feels really good to talk about what I'm going through with others. I need to get active and social and meet some new friends to spend time with and get my mind off of things.
  22. Yeah I don't know what to do. I recently had a really bad concussion (my 8th or 9th I believe) that required 5 staples. I had my first stitches in my head at 2 years old, my second at 7. Since then, I've had multiple undiagnosed concussions that resulted in my blacking out, having seizures, or resulted in severe headaches. I was referred from the university health center to the concussion clinic on campus, and they determined that I have balance and memory problems along with the severe anxiety and "I don't feel right..." symptoms. They referred me to a therapist. I've never been to one before (even thru some severe trauma from my ex boyfriend as well as severe depression and anxiety in high school; anger issues, the like), and I thought yeah maybe I'll try this out. I called my dad, and he and my mother outright laughed at me and became very angry that I would even consider seeing a therapist. They made me feel stupid and ashamed of myself. I am overwhelmed to the point where I don't enjoy things anymore. I slightly speculate that I have some sort of personality disorder stemming from family history (that includes schizophrenia among other things), a history of intense bullying, abuse, and childhood trauma. I feel ashamed to even say that, because I've had a perfect life. I had a happy childhood, I'm smart, I have a bright future. But I feel like I need to talk to someone. I don't feel right. Additionally, I'm taking more hours at school than I ever have and my car just went out on me (one of the most favorite things I have). I've been struggling at school more than I ever have. I'm an honors student and I can't make the grades I want anymore, no matter how much I study. I'm also utterly alone. I have my boyfriend with me 24/7, but my friends and I have drifted apart due to some traumatic circumstances. I've just experienced some things in college that have really changed me and changed my outlook on life, and I don't know what to do without a therapist. My insurance won't cover it either.
  23. No. Codes are randomly generated numbers and letters. No one is being punished for codes that weren't generated by them. I've heard there are some users who asked to have dragon codes changed due to their offensive nature, but I mean a code is a code, and releasing it is probably the only way of getting rid of it. Also no one on DC gets sued, idk what that has to do with the question.
