I am honestly trying to think of something to say here that will not annoy Dikiyoba, unfortunately I cannot find any response that you will not immediately turn into another one of your annoying jokes. So I'll just ask you not to continue this, or I will lose my temper. Stop stereotyping me to some purile FF noob wannabie, I've spent years distancing my character in every way from that purile show, and at every turn it's been "O_o he uses a Greatsword, it must be a Final Fantasy one guys! WTF lol noob!" I'm sick of it beyond belief, even if it’s a joke it makes me want to break things. So just stop.

First, I am not annoyed as I make this post.

Second, I'd go reread Drew's post again, because his post did not compare you to a Final Fantasy character. His advice would have been equally relevant if your gimmick was to throw paper planes at people instead of stabbing them with a giant sword--it's your attitude around the gimmick more than your gimmick itself that is causing problems. And it was serious advice, not something meant to make you look bad.

Dikiyoba is out of time, so hopefully that is enough explanation. If not, Dikiyoba will try to clear things up later.

I noticed that bit, but I got the idea he was still relating me to "it"

No, you're the one relating yourself to "it"; I'm merely inviting you to stop, and trying to explain why. You get angry when we react a certain way to what you post. Well, this is a community site. While you are certainly free to post whatever you want (within the guidelines of the CoC, of course), it shouldn't be surprising that other people will react to what you've written.

Given our reactions, what does that tell you? Your short answer is probably that we're a bunch of jerks, and that we don't understand you. If that's the case, then why bother posting here? Assuming however that you want to participate in a forum with the rest of us, consider the possibility that we do understand you, but nevertheless find reading what you've posted sometimes to be needlessly spammy or just silly. Again - I reiterate that we know that you're a younger guy who lives in Ireland, and not a greatsword-wielding Drow warrior. When you pretend to be that way in discussions about, say, the retirement of the stealth bomber, it's a little grating on us. Just be yourself! There's enough of a place for "Jeran Korak" to do his thing in the RPs.

Jeran, at this point the best thing you can do is not make a big issue of this whole thing anymore. Maybe lay low a little bit? Posting a defensive response to everything isn't a good way to make friends here.

I personally find it better to go on the offensive, see if they react to that more favorably.

It's a massive improvement over the thread's previous course.

Also, Dikiyoba is female. Just so you know.

Female's get the "Sir" title like men? Wouldn't it be "Mistress" or "Master" or "Siress" etc?

The Sir seems to be something affected by Dikiyoba herself. One does not question the genius of the scribe.

That settles it. It's time for another Abominable Photo thread.



Don't look at me, it's not my place to start these sorts of things.

Lady Davida is (was? Not seen him for ages) a prominent SW'er with a female name, despite being male.

Actually, it's not a new thing for people to have names not typical for their gender on here. I was Laurina for a while before TV, for instance.

Escaping puerility -- whether your genuine character or simply a way that others see you -- is like escaping from a Chinese finger trap. If you try to pull out straight away, you'll only get more stuck. You have to relax.

Actually, if I remember correctly Sir David was one of those members who changed their name once for a joke, but were unable to change back for some time, so the name was stuck. But for a while only.

Ngh. Don't remind me of that sort of thing. I still can't use my original PDN, because apparently it now belongs to someone else. ('Someone else' is most likely me, but you know UBB) Just gotta get used to the stupid period on the end of my name. -_-

Correct. But he had the name for a fair while, I recall, and confused many newbies in that time.

Back on topic, I really hope that I somehow return to the story. Permadeath sucks. A pity that Dikiyoba accepts no bribes. :(
