    Zyrxae got a reaction from lashtal in Non-mainland housing viewing   
    There is currently no way to view membership/loyalty for alliances located outside the four main lands. Consistency would suggest 'housing'-tagged locations in designated scenes in these lands; the exact spots would be designated upon implementation (though the Underground and No Man's Land had capitols during the torch competitions which could be repurposed to show housing details for these guilds.)

    Equal openness for all alliances seems fair, no?

    Some thoughts and an apology for derailing the thread even more..

    Color and personality--certainly, though I'd say differences in people's interpretations of color/personality relations might matter more than the colors themselves. Finding that someone associates mustard yellow with dominance and blue with fear, say, says more than "I'm a royal navy" or "she's sandstone".
    As for the actual color choices: I don't remember mine, nor do many older players, likely. Newbs and/or alts might be able to shed some insight here..

    I'd forgotten that the Diplomas thread had ended on a positive note. Apparently someone's ticked off by that revival..the idea held promise, and it may not be as much a thing of the past as dates would suggest.

    Vampir, likely each of those accounts reflects something separate about you. I'm not a huge fan of alts, but this would seem to be one of their best places..Rainbow man..maybe you're a flexible person; that could be interpreted in many ways..
    Diagnosis, however you may have meant it, sounds interesting. "I'm insane" seems a fairly common phrase around these parts, make of that what you will..

    Tom, you're right to be skeptical. Then again..
    If we entirely understood the DNA process, there wouldn't be much point to it. We may believe and say we picked randomly—maybe we did, it's possible—but there's no real way to know that. This really isn't gaugeable empirically, it's almost closer in a sense to faith.
    Faith, not really religion so much as trust in something 'more'..I think that applies to some other things about the realm, to secrets, to the general hubub..but that's another topic.

    As for this topic itself, it’s really interesting to see who’s willing to share their own DNA and what a large portion of the community has held its peace.
    Perhaps that’s more what Pip set out to find here: which of us reserve this information for whatever reasons
    and who’s willing to take the leap.

    Probably best taken with a grain of salt, but [s][url="http://storenow.net/my/?f=5002"]eh[/url][/s] EDIT: [url="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhfiqLPs3vohdG5lWGMxNlhSc2VtbVdrUGxwQ0ZaekE#gid=1"]Updated[/url]

    This seemed like an interesting idea, started it a while ago but couldn't get Excel to format them automatically. Of course it's (almost certainly) not what the DNA was intended for, but there is a funny coincidence: the first part of the DNA can be read as a binary number, which in base sixteen yields a 6-digit hexadecimal color value.
    It's far from perfect: some of them end up as seven digits instead of six, and the last part isn't used...still, the results are attractive if nothing else.

    Anyway, it's easy enough to add alliances/lands onto the doc. Who knows, combined with [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9625-assigning-colors-to-lands/"]this topic[/url], something could come out of it..
