I will admit to feeling a little exposed at this moment. For good measure, Chloe = Primaryism = Me. Now everybody knows! And everybody WILL know, especially when all this gets cached by Google.

Thank you for the kind (and thorough) welcome. I wish I had found this board ages ago.

Don't forget to leave your sanity at Alorael's office. Though it's kinda late to say it, I'll say it anyways: Welcome to Spiderweb primaryism!

Well, in spite of Not I's commendable detective work, it was easy to know your real name. The link to your website in your profile was a bit of a giveaway. :P (Just as the link to my website is a bit of a giveaway!)

Oh, and before you say "Well, my last name isnt' anywhere on my website," let me say "Well, it could've been deduced. Eventually."

EDIT: The offending passage has been excised! :D

My last name is on my site, but it's not here on the boards. There's still that comfy degree of separation. Plus, when my full name gets Googled in the future, this thread is going to come up, whereas it wouldn't if my last name were absent from it.

Ah! Separation of first and surname. We're expecting another Supreme Court ruling on that in the near future.

EDIT: On a more helpful note, I just had a thought:

You can ask everyone to edit their messages wherever your name occurs, then swear us all to secrecy. Or, failing that, raid Google's headquarters with a giant axe and hack apart their servers.

The worst thing is, if the thread gets deleted, it will forever remain in the index/cache. I have a thread from some years back where I gave my email address as firstname_lastname@web.de (you can find out if you really feel like it, but I'd rather not give Google another hit).

So I suggest that if you want it taken down, you ask Not I and spy now, rather than hoping for it to sink into the depths of the Google index. ;)

It's bad enough TGM kept calling me by my last name, and TM has my real name next to the pseudonym on his site. :rolleyes:

Depending on the website, Google's caches can be made as far as a few weeks apart. So if they're going to edit their posts to remove Primaryism's name, they'd better do so as quickly as possible before the Shadow of Cache passes over the forum...

No kidding! But they're nothing compared to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. I'm pretty sure Google throws away the older data after its updated, while the Wayback Machine keeps everything. However, the latter doesn't store as much with each cache—most larger images tend to get passed over. But it's still a lot more data than Goolge stores.

That's still debatable. Google tends to go much deeper into a site with its caches than the Wayback Machine does with its storage. It has many versions stored, but each one may only be a few pages. Google has every single piece of that page cached, but only once.

[Edit: It's still a signature, it just has a typo. Some people...]

Yeah, that's me. My hair's normally a light brown, but due to being in the sun a fair bit and other stuff, it's a bit lighter than usual. Though, if we went by my eyebrows, then my hair should be really dark...

Generally.. there are three facial expressions - moody, but innocent, happy-happy or looking really devious. I think, in this case, it was more that I was tired, than looking genuinely innocent.

As a person, I'm pale as a sheet, usually. As far as my hair goes, it does have a slight ginger tint, brought out by a light use of blonde hair dye. Maybe it's just the scanner or your monitor, though.

It's not a bright orange. It's a pale, dingy orange, like that of the vulture's head, but very slightly more orange.

1) How does Drakey do grocery shopping without causing a riot?
He uses a combination of mail-order and the internet to get what he needs.

Second Question: There is a reason why our Drakefyre is 2nd/3rd in the Spiderweb Hierachy.

And to answer the unspoken third question: Vahnatai have access to alot of pretty crystals which are worth a lot of money and that's why he doesn't have to go out and work (And cause riots)

Sure, mail-order. That's what I thought. But then I realised... how does he open the door to recieve his deliveries?

Well, to cut a long story short, I eventually deduced that since Drakey likes Exile over Avernum, he must live on food produced with the spell Manna. And that's it. No pizza, no coke, and no DVD's from Amazon.

Hmm. I thought he was living next door and decided to stake a claim, in the eventual hope of becoming Admin, and going power mad. I've heard vahnatai do that a lot...

Don't be silly. Drakey makes Force Barriers to block his door so he can pick up his deliveries. He's also better at blending in than you seem to think. Calista Flockhart has managed have a successful career despite being a vahnatai, you know.

—Alorael, who can also attest to the fact that the delivery man is not necessarily a problem if you're willing to take all necessary steps.

Alo, you forgot the 'who' on a post a while back. Just so you know. Also, someone's bound to act on the fact that several deliverymen have all disappeared in the same vicinity.

Anyway, we need to make our our forum archiving system that saves the stage of the page with each new post. Then Mariann could purge all she wanted, we'd know for sure who was the first to 1000, and us newbies could finally get a taste of Xian Skull.

Yes, but the company that delivers the food will get rather suspicious if they keep finding their delivery man outside Drakey's house with a bullet to the head.

EDIT: Ben got it.

Yes, that can be a problem. The obvious solution is not to stick with ordering food and not to leave a body. (Hint: the two are linked.) Most companies won't worry about a delivery man or two, and there are plenty of companies that deliver.
