    Actually, it is. The character who uses it the most is the smartest, and so he know's how to use it. And a secret is not exactly immaterial. A secret can be info-which is enough to be existant.

    [​IMG] Greetings. Greetings and beware: I have a strong need of unburdaining myself.

    Yesterdays angst and nervosity was enough to make me literally nauseous, spending almost whole night rocking in a corner with a my hands in a spasmic grip around my knees, between puking my guts out.
    After only having slept a couple of hours I can only say that I have a hard time remembering the last time I felt this miserable.

    The only thing missing now is that my portait-pack get rejected because I forgot to write the DAMN EMAIL ADRESS IN THE README! Argh!

    Now where's those pills?

    Maybe I should buy that katana, although it costs almost 200 €... Would make a nice decorative.

    If I just knew what the blade looks like and what shape it is... :( (We can't forget that infamous 'niki' when speaking of swords :D ). It's either this or Dragon Sword (at least they show the blade this time... Factory made swords... pff)

    ...right. "Dreadlock's Portraits" should be on the site on the next update. Whenever it happens.

    Once again I'm throwing a question in the air.

    How long does it usually take until the avatar&title you've chosen comes up?

    How often does SP get updated? By the sound of what people are saying it seems like it is a rear event.

    Site updates are usually every month, but the next update probably won't be until the new site design comes up.

    And Dreadlocks, if you have spoken Taluntain personally in the chat, it should be almost instantaneous. Giving an avatar always seems to me like two or three clicks and that's it.

    I got a mail from Tal (presumably) with the message that my files will be on the site, and I just replied it with the avatar I wanted and my title.
    Did I screw it up by doing it that way?

    No, it does not. If it were so, we would all have been slandered since everyone started as a low ranking member.

    Another thing is that high post count, ancient registration date, portrait or avatar don't really give you a measurable rank. They contribute to your general prestige, but what actual matters is what you have to say and in what manner you say it. Consequently, the lesser idiot you are the sooner you rise, as people will eventually come to know your net worth.

    I dont't really think I meant it that way, and I was a tad pissed at the time, so excuse me.

    Postcounts and that are material -or not even that-
    things, and I meant something broader.
    Eg. people DO tend to prefer those they have known for long before some silly jerk that came along three days ago and just won't leave, which, of course, is natural.

    To sum things up, what I meant was that the time it takes to be aknowledged is irritating, as it is with any society, that's all.

    [​IMG] IIRC - my very first post was 'Yes' :lol:

    Yes it does take awhile until people get used to you,usually if you point out your new, people will treat you like you are, try to blend in :thumb:
