    Veloci-Rapture got a reaction from Ganu_Candali in Not for the first time, I am severely annoyed by Pinterest's distinct lack of minorit   
    Well for this one, I tried "black female ranger character", "black female ranger fantasy art", "black elf fantasy art", "Indian female fantasy art", "India female fantasy art", "middle eastern female fantasy art", "middle eastern female character art", "mediterranean female fantasy art", "mediterranean female character art", and "minority female fantasy art" (Pinterest had NO FUCKING CLUE what I was asking for with that last one; the results were some weird random mishmash of nothing relevant).
    I did find a few appropriate pictures eventually, but the Valdar population of named female characters is looking like it's going to be limited limited to about six people.
    On the plus side, that's a 600% increase in usable pictures of minorities compared to the first time I tried to search for them about 4 years ago.

    Don't get succulents, they die very easily. Or you could get a succulent, and neglect it completely, since they seem to like that.

    Veloci-Rapture got a reaction from supernal in Hey folks just a quick question. What is the correct way to remove someone who is on   
    An addendum to what @Praetorian said, there's not even a "staff assistance" way to do it. I've had a "follower" for years that I've been trying to remove from my profile page (long-time inactive and probably a bot to begin with), and @supernal told me there was nothing that could be done except for me to turn off "followers" altogether.
    A strip of electrical tape applied strategically to your monitor may be the only solution.

    And, after a quick experiment, no, turning followers "off" and then back "on" again does not reset it to blank. Ah well.

    I will!
    Also, just in case you didn't see my edit, I'm not trying to be a curmudgeon here. I'm trying to put together a character idea to specifically address, IC, all the things I get curmugeonly about and it requires cleaving very tightly to Val's rules-as-written. Another long-term project.

    Veloci-Rapture got a reaction from supernal in I gotta say man, with 100% honesty, I kinda miss your first person posts haha they ha   
    Reason 1: There was a thread in general chat, a long time ago, wherein multiple long-time Val members expressed an intense dislike for first-person narration, especially in a thread where everyone else was posting in third-person; they said to it destroyed the flow of the thread. The disdain for such a style of posting was so great that at least half a dozen people proclaimed they would immediately drop any thread in which someone was posting in the first-person.  I didn't want to be That Guy.
    Reason 2: Most of my newer characters have all been female, and even Ananias (now shortened to Ana) is leaning harder on their inherent gender-fluid nature. There are plenty of people who look askance as guys writing girl characters, even in the third-person; I worry that if I, as a guy, started writing female or non-binary characters in the first person.... I don't know, it's hard to explain.
    That's a lie. It's not hard to explain. It just takes like three long paragraphs and requires me talking about my ex-wife, which I resolved to do less this year.

    I'd never be able to turn away from this place. Your world has been a bright spot during the darkest times of my life.  I don't know how much you hear that, but seriously; you've created something that's had a huge positive effect on at least one person in a real, significant sense.

    Naw, see, this is exactly what I need to be doing to help wrench out of this. Writing and social interaction with friends is the best medicine (that won't show up on a piss test), but I have to force myself to get off my ass and do it. It's easier if (A) I don't feel like I'm letting everyone down and thus sparking anxiety on top of it and (B) if I set a date and commit to a goal. 
    I'll be gritting my teeth at first, but by the time I'm done with my posts I'll feel a million times better.

    I just want to make sure you’re having fun when you do this stuff. If you aren’t even if it’s just for the time being no one (who is sane) is going to fault you for it. I personally super appreciate your moxie but don’t want you gritting your teeth so hard they crack, not for my part! 
    I hope it smooths out for you sooner than later
