Roll Call: January 2018

Recommended Posts

Unofficially, of course. Felt like it should be here now that the site is up and running again.

 

Question: What do you think of the new site?

 

I don't have the authority to assign points, but as you all know it's typically 5 for signing in and 5 for answering.

 

As for my answer, it's ok. Annoyed at the offline, but not. Unsure if I didn't have permission to get on or not. The look is...acceptable.

I'll go ahead and pin it.

I'm unsure about the new site, it kinda bugs me that the thread (and reply box) is not in the center once you've scrolled down.

As everything, the changes will take some getting used to.

It's definitely attractive.

Also, 5 of my January points to Eldrick for taking initiative and not waiting for Panchi :wink:

Having trouble acclimating to change as always. I'll get used to most of it. Will be happier when glitches are fixed. Really don't like the site on my phone. I should have gotten a bigger phone :/.

Here and I've decided I'll need to use a tablet now. My little android really doesn't like the data and ads on the new mobile version. Plus on the tablet I can type with both thumbs!

I agree with Cross. Its easier for me to navigate on the computer than the mobile. I like the new look.

I'm here as well.

The new look is nice. Still trying to learn my way around. Prefer laptop to mobile, but I'm managing.

Just thrilled to be back with folks again.

I quite like the new site personally. Haven't quite figured out how to stop the emails for each thread I've commented on but I'll figure it out :grin:

This is what you do with points

 

 

that refers you t the old offsite points page which I don't think is up to date. The newer onsite points page is in the farmhouse, and is a work in progress. Also not yet up to date but I believe @Eldrick4221 gosh your name is mathy  may have enough points to level up to soldier and pick a faction. Don't quote me on that, but panchi, tress, Leyrann and other staff ppl will be able to give you a better answer.

 

anyhoo, points don't really exist until they're updated, but I'm sure that will happen soon because we love promotions yay!

There is one thing i want everyone everywhere to do: DO NOT WATCH ENDER'S GAME. If you have already then you are scarred for life.

Here.

 

The look is alright, but I'm disappointed that after it has been down so long, they have not reanimated my GIF avatar.

Good point. The same goes for Eragon.

    • it was definitely happenstance,leigh butler's explanation is  pure conjecture.
    • Book one wasn't guaranteed any sequels when it came out, so it had to have an ending tha could pass for a stand-alone. When it sold well, sequels were green lit, and it became the first of a series.   Things changed with hindsight and Jordan changed as a writer and the story changed and grew more complicated.   and everyone leveled up, Rand and the forsaken.   you can construct meaning behind happenstance but I think it was mostly happenstance.
    • That theory actually makes a great deal of sense.   It doesn't explain why they created it in the first place though, as Jordan said it wasn't used for the purpose it was intended for. That said, I suppose it would have been very handy for Rand to have clean Saidin when he was starting out.    
      This made me think of a more literary question - should Jordan have killed off two of the chosen at the beginning of the series? It kind of undermined their status right from the start to die from an untrained farmer and a damaged plant creature. Might it have been better for Someshta to have wounded Balthamel and then Rand caught them by surprise by securing the Eye - then they retreat?    I think the ending would still have been fairly dramatic and it wouldn't really change anything about the long term arc of the series (neither character really needed to be doing anything for the next few books, they could just carry out some schemes off screen, finding artefacts etc. until they get better bodies) - but it may have built more tension to avoid the death of any of the Chosen until book 3.   Thoughts?    
    • I'll do my best to start the game on Monday. The setup is done.   I'll be doing role pms from my phone so its gonna be fairly simple. =)
    •     @Cross  Well you were a pretty amazing mentee, so I guess we did good
