@Helveck

Just an Average Joe...

Why this hasn't been done yet is beyond me...

Really, when you think about it, it is merely a fact of simple science. Everything is better with Dragons.

Let me explain:

Navigation:

Instead of clicking links and opening threads, you mount said Dragon and fly to the topic of your choice. That is assuming the Dragon does not incinerate you.

Locked Threads:

Instead of locking threads, they can burn them.

Banning:

Instead of banning people, they can eat them.

Well alright, I suppose if it is a short ban the offender will simply be forced into the Dragons mouth, whereby the Dragon will close its jaw, shake the offender violently back and forth, suddenly releasing the individual from it's grip and sending said offender flying through the air.

Now for taming...

Of course, the Dragons may step out of line from time to time, and so I think it is only appropriate that certain members be given the ability to "Shout" at these creatures. Each "Shout" will be a series of three spoken words, that when screamed will cause the Dragon to become calm or to submit. And in case you're wondering, there will be time to expand on what sort of "Shouts" could be further utilized down the road for different purposes. After all, safety is a priority.

DeeJ and Urk will become Dragon whisperers to ensure that, for the most part (minus the odd slip-up) the Dragons obey the orders of each member, to make visiting this site and navigating, a smooth, seamless, and easy task.

But like I said, Dragons are... well, temperamental. So, we'll need protection if we want to add this amazing feature to the site. So I've done some serious brainstorming on how each member will interact with the Dragons based off of the ever important title system...

New members:

They need to be protected. They're new, scared, cold and uncertain about how to navigate around the site and how to interact with this ferocious yet cuddly creatures. So they will be given a stick.

Heroic members:

They are Heroes, heroes fight with their minds and bodies, no sticks. Their sticks will be taken away.

Legendary members:

People of Legends, or "Legendary" members need to be full fitted with armor carved from the flesh and bone of Dragons that tire and or die over time. They will also be given the best sword in the Universe. Or a lightsaber.

Mythic members:

They'll have some sort of magical powers to fend off an riled up Dragons... I'm really not to concerned about that.

Moving on...

I think it's important that the site also be spiced up by way of news stories. Sure DeeJ is here and he's doing a fine job keeping up with the Community and its people, but we've been extremely dry on the news front the past several months and so I've volunteered one of our older more wise and well-spoken Dragons to provide us with some exciting and fresh news stories to keep us excited and entertained. Here is what he had to say upon being given this position:

Posted by: Dragon

ROAR. GIVE ME VILLAGE PEOPLE TO EAT.


You'd be amazed at how many computers we went through to have him successfully type that without crushing it.

So, once again... I've done my best to contribute an exhilarating and fresh take on what could be added to the site in terms of features. I will take no questions, further ideas or alterations to ideas. If you attempt this, I will click the "Unleash Dragons" button. You've been warned.

In a time long past, the armies of the dark came again to the lands of men. Their leaders became known as the fallen lords, and their terrible sorcery was without equal in the west.
In 30 years they reduced the civilized nations into carrion and ash. Until the free city of Madrigal alone defined them. An army gathered there, and a desperate battle was joined against the fallen
Heros were born in the fire and bloodshed of the wars which followed and their names and deeds will never be forgotten

When the ninjas want to ban someone, they can type in FUS ROH DAH.

FUS- warning

ROH- 3 day ban

DAH- perma ban

:p

Also, not sure what a Draon is, LOL.

You people have just sent my sides into orbit. A bunch of MLG try hards sucking the dick of some supposed pro half the thread hasn't even heard of. Classic.

Lord almighty. I think Helveck needs to visit a shrine. Poor fool has lost his mind.

I remember when I used this space to put cool looking links to my chapters back in the day. I don't even know why I'm using it now. Why are you even reading this? You must be interested in me. Still reading?

This thread pretty much backs all reasoning why I won't allow myself to get Skyrim until my schedule slows down. Apparently the game causes you to think differently, even in ways to improve the B.net community.

based on what I have seen, I think Skyrim takes your soul.

Five years older and wiser
The fires are burning, I'm fire, never tire
Slay warriors in the forests, and on hire

TL;DR

What I want to know is - What are a "Draons"?

  • 11.30.2011 1:03 PM PST

Space Draons? the kind of dragons so secret that you can't even see their G, because G is darker!

People are often not reminded of their stupidity as much as they probably should be. As I would hope someone would call me out on an account of being stupid, or an idiot... I shall do the same.
Helveck, you're an idiot.



<3
Haha, clever Spud. Stop being a jerk Helveck.

Basically, I make the best topics ever.

Feedback!
Duardo: This thread is locked for being stupid.
cortana 5 : It's perpetually my time of the month and I'm just grouchy.
Foman: I see absolutely no reason, either theoretical or practical, that this is not a superb idea. Excellent work, my friend.

Really Helveck? It hasn't gotten THAT bad has it?

  • 11.30.2011 1:22 PM PST

Indeed; I would not recommend it.

What about those with other prefixes, and the knights who will venture to vanquish these almighty creatures.

And the trolls hiding under every bridge to each forum. How do we combat these beings.

  • user homepage:

And the Shadow fell upon the Land, and the World was riven stone from stone. The oceans fled, and the mountains were swallowed up, and the nations were scattered to the eight corners of the World. The moon was blood, and the sun was as ashes. The seas boiled, and the living envied the dead. All was shattered, and all but memory lost, and one memory above all others, of him who brought the Shadow and the Breaking of the World. And him they named Dragon.

Oh I know what it is.

-The full bottle is a silent bottle.

It's an interesting choice of how much cooler the legendary members sound that mythics. of course, this is ignoring your legendary status. :)

Dragons are cuddly? perhaps I should cuddle with the pet dragon from Skyrim.
