  1. Wait spaghetti fingers made me laugh so hard, and actually out loud

     

    Also I feel like that kinda calls for a story in which he finds the one who shoots pasta sauce and it becomes an epic adventure/romance. But I'm sappy like that. Also, there could be enemies/friends who shoot parmesan or pesto.

     

    K thinking too much about this now.

     

    It's cool to see your non-digital art too.


  2. Thank you! They look awesome!

    *Sets new background* From my pleb non-artist point of view, I really don't think losing touch has happened, I would say maybe change of style? To having more defined outlines. Versus us experiencing "closure" from the Gestalt effect, lol (aka having our brains complete the image).

     

    All the thanks, keep up the great work.

     

    And because you seem really busy - let me know if you don't have time to do this - but could I also request a minimalist wallpaper of Ba'ul carrying the Fiertia ship?


  3. Technically I'm not at 5 years yet, I joined August 4, 2010, but I'm getting there.

     

    I think I'm the only person though who completely quit for four years - starting around June 2011, missed everything, uh, randomly collected one dragon along the way - and came back.

     

    There have been so many changes. For one, the dragons that people value are way different... CB blacks (alt and normal), CB stripes, CB vines (alt usually), CB hellfires, and CB nebulas used to be some of the more valuable trade offers (after CB golds and silvers, obviously). And I think there are at least twice as many dragons as there were when I was playing from 2010-2011.

     

    Basically I think, with the incentives to use the AP more and the more frequent departure notices, the site has gotten maybe easier/more fair.

     

    Also, kinda funny reason why I came back - was bored, procrastinating on work, decided to check on DC, was playing with BSAs, tried summon, succeeded. O_o Aaaand now I'm back to my high school days, spending inordinate amounts of time clicking and staring at the screen. Sigh. Too lazy to rename everything.

    yes

     

     

    (I love the Tales series if you couldn't tell from my avatar and signature) (I'm actually really hyped to get back into doing wallpapers now)

    Ahh yay, thank you so much!

     

    Vesperia was my one of my favorite series growing up (also played Symphonia and loved it too). It was funny how Tales series set such high standards for life, like, yeah I'm not even legal (in the States) and I've already saved the world a few times. You? xd.png

     

    But I loved the worlds in them, and the stories. Especially the stories.

     

    Btw did you ever get Rita up to firing 10 fireballs? haha (now I wanna play Tales again).


  5. I've not the connections to ask for a Tinsel. I think I'm not very connected to the people on this site, in general (no family members or siblings here). Therefore, I don't like to ask people I've never known, ever, for a tinsel. To put it euphemistically, it forces me to feel thankful for what I already have (which is a lot. Only by comparing it to what others have it seems like less C:)

     

    I know there's a pretty decent rule that, if you're generous, people will be generous back. Those who are generous usually have enough rare dragons themselves to be generous to others, though. Regardless, generosity is appreciated, applauded, and lauded (passive voice, oops).

     

    People also enjoy having the feeling of power that comes with having a tinsel. You can ask whatever you want for it, but you can also gain the title of "extremely generous" by gifting it. I think that's what people are generally looking for when they trade for a tinsel.

     

    Lastly, I understand that I'm starting to sound angry, but acknowledge that I shouldn't. This game naturally becomes plutocratic in nature because some dragons are given more value than others, and that encourages the competitive atmosphere to collect more dragons. It's important to understand that, in the end, you still have however much you earn in real life, and that's what affects your future the most.


  6. One thing that I don't like Rebecca Black for (well, it's technically her song's fault, but whatever) is that now, whenever someone says, "It's Friday!" I can't help but think of the song. What used to be a happy phrase now is just... ugh, nooo don't get stuck in my head...


  7. I'm a bit upset that the site is down as well. I know it's not purposeful or anyone's fault, but I don't have much time to log on for the long periods of time necessary to collect eggs (studying, school work, etc) and the fact that Easter egg collecting was mostly during the week made it harder to find time to log on. And when I finally did get the chance to log on, the site was down.

    Also, just double-checking, dragons will be credited with time they lost right?


  8. I can't sing. At all. Friday is actually sort of in my super limited range, but even then I can't sing it well. I'd fail horribly at 1) the acting of the video, 2) the singing, and 3) producing it (though Rebecca Black did not produce it).

     

    Also, no need to be sorry. I have no problems with being a terrible singer. I never said that she's extremely talented, but I would say she's at least slightly above average; or even if she isn't, saying everyone who made her famous is more talented than her is ridiculous. Never say never, right?

    Oh, I see what you mean now! I agree with you, there are definitely exceptions. I was probably too general by saying "everyone." She's definitely not horrible.
