It's the only thing holding me together most of the time. THANKFULNESS // At one point, I had to give up having a car, as I couldn't afford it. When I got my new job, public transport was not an option as it doesn't go there. My Mum and step dad went out to find a super cheap car that wouldn't die on me, and here I am with this.

  6. LOVE (Pacifier) Unconditional Love forever bounded to my heart. "SAUDADE" (Candle) The slow burn of a candle is the perfect companion for saudade, (there is no english translation). Saudade is also closely tied to a portuguese unique musical style : Fado Fado is usually listened at candle light in small events where people sit in small tables of 4 or 6 persons and the singer uses only his own voice followed by the portguese guitar (without any amplification). There is also some more "comercial versions" of fado with great success, ex: Mariza PLEASURE (Expresso

      I think this could also be used as an example of disrespect. Because as Nimrodel rightly said:     Now, I have no idea what the problems between the two are, but to openly bring that particular quarrel (one of particular controversy) into this topic, when you could have given unnamed examples of disrespect and not try to publicly shame someone, seems slightly disrespectful as well; I'd even say to both parties as neither of them may want accusations flung about in regards to their own, personal, disagreements.   Perhaps instead of trying to "name and shame" i

    I guess if given some context, No One, at least for the thing of disrespecting those who work hard on MD, what mur says is fairly reasonable, I think. For example, the way DD treats chewett is abhorrent. Obviously disrespecting him and his work. But what I don't understand, I suppose, is that he's constantly rewarded for bad behavior....

  9. Not a new idea, but proposing a little change in the location of the 'pray (give heat)' button, for donating heat to a Protector, from bottom part to the top (above the 'Your progress for today' text).   The current location of the said button is visible provided one has gained like 3 (or 4) stats, but then it moves down when more stats are gained, making it a bit "inconvenient" for a worshiper to do instant click heat-donations. I am not acting lazy, but scrolling also takes some time, and time takes some heat :D   And also, I would like to propose if another button be added at

    Respect is an invisible factor that is highly important in your evolution in MD community. Respect is earned not asked for or given as a gift...but you can fight to keep it. There is no written rule to influence your evolution in md based on how you show your respect to older players, especially to those that dedicate countless hours of their lives to make things more enjoyable to all of you, however, it is obvious that if you fail to respect such people, things won't go to far or too good for you. I am talking here about many people, people that actively help extending MD, or do quests a

    Now, I would not write a post merely to censor your choice of words. That was hardly my intention, read it this way:   To be fair (to DD), (I must clarify) that was not an experience shared by all of the involved (lest someone get the wrong impression).

  12. The title says it all. I am making here notes about possible future md concepts, but for now they are useful as they are, pure information. Who sais md is "so much different" than RL, its "so blind"   When i say fights, I am talking about "personal" fights, fights that use ideas as weapons. Fights that use weapons as weapons, lower or raise your reputation and respect others have for you.   If you pick an inferior target: - you have high chances to win, this adds up to your stregth and reputation - if you lose, the damage you take is a lot bigger and risk for fatality increase

  13. Within a given field, whenever conflict between two parties arises, their sway is given by their respective influence within the field. The spoils and losses are both likewise reaped in that influence, and inversely proportional to the party's influence in relation to its opponent.   That, I believe, reflects what Mur has stated, though I may be mistaken. That, I assume, in the context of other recent posts.   ---   That, however, is only entirely true in a white room scenario, where only that field and those two parties exist, such that the field cannot expand or lose gro

    "The Warden"

    On the matter of subjectivity, any human of any role will have bias or act in accordance with their point of view. One thing that would help someone with this role would be transperancy with their actions, to either the judges/those in power or with the public. As for whether it is needed *shrugs* I do not know. I do not know how often those who are behind the scenes (actions/conflicts that the public does not know about) have to deal with this and if that by creating a warden it would make things easier for them or more complicated. And it depends on if anyone would want a role like tha

    Nimrodel, multiple people have tried to assist (myself included) dd in a way that was respectable, and still got (excuse my language) shat in in return. So, the behavior in itself is not too far out of the realm of possibility. I've had my dealings with chew when I wasn't so peachy keen, and in my experience, Chew keeps fairly even. Aeo, that posting was in regards to something someone else stated. On phone otherwise I'd quote. I'll elaborate later. I was actually messing around on Google plus and my Google contacts or other email contacts were on there. Someone was a friend of some

    Respect

    Though i dont mean to degrade chewett, but i would say surely dd must have disliked some part of chewie's behaviour to react that way? Have you heard dd's side of the story curi? or did you take it for granted that he's an ass and thereby he's subjecting chewett to horrendous treatment? Respect goes both ways. If i feel someone's talking crap about me or insulting me, i wouldnt hesitate to give them royally for it. Dont really care who it is or what i'd have to endure for it.

    Respect

    I'm going to use a scenario that I ran into regarding personal information. I once found some information about a fellow MD'er on a social media site. I knew this person was very particular about their personal information. I didn't choose to add them, or message them, but I did tell them eventually. Point is, if you find someone's information, don't take liberties with it. Tell them, privately that you stumbled upon it, as they may not know. I have personally had information that I did not voluntarily put out there (I'm looking at you, Rophs), found and acted upon without my app

    Respect

      I have had people using my name, to try and "protect" themselves and threaten other players by telling people "Dont mess up by quest, Chewett wont like it if you do that". That person got right and truely shouted down when someone pinged me about it. Do not use someone in authority to try and "protect you" by name dropping.   If you are telling someone that "Chewett wont like this" and it comes off as a threat, then there will be issues. Dont speak for others if you are not sure. Especially not those in authority.

    Respect

    I'm very much under the belief that the following are also ways undermine the respect for a person: Saying "(s)he would say", "(s)he would feel", "(s)he would...", "(s)he wouldn't..." - Anything that is speaking for someone when they have not directly asked you to.You're disrespecting someone's trust/friendship/right to their own opinion (not to mention possibly spreading false ideas.)   Stating what someone does or doesn't know, as if it were a fact - Truth is, 90% of the time you don't know what someone does or doesn't know, so stating they don't know something can quite often be disr

    As an additional note to this:     Many of you know I value my privacy, MD has NEVER cared about who you personally and we have have punished people for using IRL information against others. This isnt just a matter of respect, we have rules for this. If you share someone elses private details, and they are unhappy you have done so, you will get punished.   Be careful with what you share. If it was an accident then we will be more lenient, but in many cases we cannot tell if you are lying or not, and it will go down as a black mark on your record.   Some of you will

    Just my 2 cents: drawing/essay quests in MD should be longer than 1 week. In MD time runs slower than anywhere. It is better if you would allow at least 2 week-ends for people to have time to submit something seeing that all of us have jobs/school, we need to eat, sleep, breath.   Also maybe a little advertisement in Mood Panel will remind people of the quest cause personally I have forgotten about it and I really wanted to submit something.

    First of all pardon me for my lack of drawing skills. I'm not a very active member because of the lack of time tough I decided to participate in this challenge. And I hope I got all the rules right. If I did something wrong I'll try to correct :) So let's begin. My first choice is : Melancholy Simple right? Just a solid round shape. Yet it’s just spinning in my mind day and night, especially when I’m working on the computer. Laser and cable mouses have lost the solidity they had before. (Feel like a poet :P ) Anyway I regret the good old days when your mouse got bugged and you know you

    Rich coming from you considering your performances in the past. Before pointing a finger at dd you should probably take into account the kind of behaviour you've shown towards the people in md during those rage quit tantrums that you threw. I rest my case.
