I've noticed lately that people have been getting after and being mean to each other, sometimes for no apparent reason. This honestly makes me very sad to see. SoD is a place where people can share our thoughts and feelings, but some are doing it to the point where other people feel insulted, harrassed, threatened, or overall bad about themselves. To those who are being insensitive to others or being mean and rude to them when you want or something like that, please stop. Some people here might be struggling with low self-esteem or things like depression. I don't like bringing up difficult and touchy subjects like this, especially on the forums, but I feel it needs to be addressed. This is not what SoD is supposed to be about.

Just to be clear, I'm not saying all of you are like this, I'm only talking about those who have a habit of being like that. When someone puts their opinion on the forums, it may not always be a popular one, but most of the time, it's a valid one nonetheless. Also, when a person is new to the forums and isn't doing anything genuinely wrong, don't be insensitive just because you think that what they are saying is wrong or don't agree with it. Remember when you were new here and how it must have felt to be the newbie. I sure do.

Here is a cute and goofy li'l Burrowing owl for your enjoyment. You're welcome.

Flap your wings if you like owl memes! (I do not own this picture or the one of the Burrowing Owl, sadly)

 

 

About Me (in real life):

 

. Name: Emily. I've also been called Ember and Bird Girl as nicknames by people I know.

 

. Gender: Female

 

. State: California

 

. Age: Old enough to know better XD

 

Birthday: February 1 (Aquarius power!)

 

. Hair Color: Blonde ( though most of my SoD vikings as well as Raineir my OC have some shade of brown)

 

. Favorite color(s): Purple and green

 

. Favorite Gemstone: Amethyst.  It is my birthstone, after all.  Plus, it's purple/violet!

 

. Favorite movie(s): How to Train Your Dragon, definitely. Also, probably Pirates of the Caribbean (the first one) would be my favorite live action.

 

. Favorite TV shows: Dreamworks Dragons, Top Gear (until the 23rd season), Hawaii 5-0 (not really anymore, it totally went downhill for me the most recent seasons), Modern Family, Lone Star Law, Gilligan's Island (60s show, my dad watched it when he was younger and introduced it to me), Avatar: The Last Airbender

 

 

Favorite food(s): CHOCOLATE, anything Reeses, and my mom's spaghetti

 

. Pets: A cat, Scottish Terrier dog, and two chickens (both hens)

 

. Favorite animal: Oh, where do I start? I'll do top 5 in no particular order: domestic cat, birds, elephant, sea turtle, domestic dog, and dragons. Oh, that was six. It's hard choosing just five!

 

Hobbies: Birding, birdwatching, exploring the outdoors, HTTYD, and doodling random stuff

 

Superhero alias: Might as well, since I created one for myself back in high school. Peregrine, able to fly at fast speeds, has super strength (raptor talons have a STRONG grip), hawk-like vision, and can talk to animals, mostly birds.

 

Fun facts about me: I have a huge passion for nature, especially birds.  I'm not afraid to touch or hold bugs, insects, amphibians, and reptiles, including snakes.

 

Hogwarts House (according to Pottermore): HUFFLEPUFF!

 

 

About me (in SoD)

 

. I joined SoD on: March 5, 2017.  I created my forum account on January 27, 2018.

 

. Main Viking(s): nakataGreenThumbs and Seerboldraven

 

. Main Dragon(s): nakataGreenThumbs: Lightning the Shockjaw, Skyhopper the Titan Deadly Nadder, and Claw the Sand Wraith. Seerboldraven: Flash the Titan Skrill and Silvermist the Flightmare

 

. Clan:  I am a proud member of Isle of Gazoo!

 

Trophies: 523. So far, all my trophies are from racing, which, for me, took many races. I've gotten a lot better, but I'm in no way the best.

 

. Main Dragon for Racing: My Sand Wraith, Claw. Sand Wraiths may not have Toothless' speed or acceleration rate, or the speed of dragons like the Skrill and Razorwhip, but they have a very good top speed at 8.8, and they have a better acceleration and turn rate. This, in my opinon, makes them one of the best racing dragons.  For my second main viking, Seerboldraven, it's Silvermist the Flightmare. Not quite as good acceleration and turn rate as the Sand Wraith, but the speed is the same (8.8), and the turn rate is still good for a race.

 

Main Dragon for Battle: My Whispering Death, Thorntail. I also use my Changewing, Ghost. For Seerboldraven, it's Whisper the Whispering Death.

 

My code: EZEPJ4, just in case you want to be friends but can't find me in-game.

 

Random Fact I just came up with: If dragons were birds, let's face it: the Night Fury would either be a Peregrine Falcon because both are really fast, or a Barn Owl because both are stealthy and have a hair-raising screech.

 

I am fully against Hacking in SoD!

 

This is my main viking, nakataGreenThumbs, with her main dragon, a female Titan wing Deadly Nadder named Skyhopper, who's clearly taking a snooze here.

Here's the story about how my OC viking Raineir met her dragon:

 Berk was not an easy place to live. It was cold, it snowed there most of the year, finding food was not always an easy task, and, yes, it was cold. Oh, and the almost constant dragon raids didn't help matters either. To Berk's vikings, it was either kill or be killed, no other option. Well, except for one viking girl. Much like Berk's heir, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, Raineir Feralsome was considered an "odd one out." Except, instead of wanting to prove herself by killing a dragon like Hiccup, she didn't like to kill. She thought there had to be another way like Valka, Hiccup's 'dead' mother. One day, Raineir was exploring the forest in Raven Point. She liked to explore the land of Berk, learning about its geographical features. Seemingly out of nowhere, a screech of pain rang out. Alarmed, Raineir ran towards the source of the noise. Coming upon a cove (yes, THAT cove), she looked down and saw a small group of what appeared to be hunters, since they were holding spears and bows and arrows. They were surrounding what looked like a Skrill. The poor dragon was in bad shape. There were wounds on its sides, and had trouble fighting the hunters off in her weakened state. Raineir quickly climbed down and made herself known. "Hey!" She shouted, "step away from the Skrill, and none of you will get hurt!" She drew her sword and moved in front of the dragon. The leader stared at her, then laughed. "You?" He said, "a mere girl willing to fight to defend a beast?" She didn't flinch, only glaring more fiercly at him. Making up her mind, she charged at him, sword ready, not to kill, but to possibly knock him and his goonies out. As she was about to do so, a a small bolt of lightning came from... the sword? The lightning hit one of the hunters, instantly knocking him out. Surprised, Raineir looked at her sword in shock, then glared at the leader again. Not wanting to become the next target, he and the rest of his goonies ran away fast. Once they were gone, she turned towards the Skrill, taking medical supplies out of her satchel. The Skrill looked at her in shock, obviously surprised to witness a human protecting a dragon. Raineir put her hand out. The Skrill seemed hesitant, but then she put her snout gently on the girl's outstretched hand. Raineir set to work on cleaning and bandaging the dragon's wounds. She decided to name her dragon Flash. Flash, once fully healed, let Raineir become her rider. Because Raineir had saved Flash, Flash would never stop protecting her from any threat. They're more than just friends; they're family, and will always be loyal to each other, no matter what. This story happened about a month or so before Hiccup discovered Toothless.

 

Here's how Raineir met Scout:

Raineir was having a pretty good day. Hiccup woke up from his coma a few days ago and was getting used to his prosthetic, and the war between the dragons and Berkians was finally over. She went to go get some fish for Flash's dinner, and aside from nearly tripping over Fungus, Mildew's sheep, and listening to Mildew complain about that, not much happened with that. Upon arriving home, she set the basket of fish in front of Flash (Flash stayed with Raineir and sometimes slept in Raineir's room instead of the stables) who promptly started eating happily. Raineir heard a tiny squeak come from somewhere. Confused, she looked around for the location and source of the noise. It sounded like a Terrible Terror. Flash suddenly stopped eating and growled at her fish basket. "Flash, what-," Raineir peered inside and out flew a pink and yellow Terrible Terror with reddish brown horns and back spines. Flash roared in alarm and growled at the intruder. "Whoa! Calm down, girl. It's just a little Terrible Terror," Raineir tried to calm her down. She held her hand to the little dragon, who looked defensive. "Hey, it's ok, little guy." the terror growled at that. "Oh, I'm sorry! You're a girl, then." Happily, the dragon nudged Raineir's hand. "I think I'll name you... Scout! What do you think, do you like that name?" Scout squeaked happily at that. Soon enough, Flash warmed up to the little newcomer, though was still sometimes annoyed by the little dragon's antics and 'singing.' Raineir soon trained Scout to search/scout out objects with hand signals. Her new friend warmed up to Raineir's parents and fellow dragon riders/friends pretty quickly (Snotlout is an on and off case).

 

How Raineir met Claw:

It was a fairly stormy day on Berk, with rain coming down in plentiful amounts, though no thunder or lightning. Raineir was riding Flash on their evening flight, despite the weather. They landed in the cove, when a loud roar was heard. It sounded like a roar of distress. "Deja Vu," Raineir said. This was what happened right before she found Flash. She climbed back on Flash and they flew into the forest, towards the source of the roar. In a large clearing was a purple... Sand Wraith? It was a Sand Wraith! The poor guy looked lost and confused, so naturally Raineir wanted to help. Cautiously and slowly, she walked up to the dragon. The Sand Wraith turned around and noticed her standing a few feet away from him. Alarmed, he got ready to attack if necessary. He growled loudly at her. Flash got into her attacking position as well, ready to defend her sister if needed. Raineir calmed Flash down. "It's ok, don't worry, girl. I got this." Flash calmed down, though she still looked wary. Surprised at the bond between a dragon and a human, the Sand Wraith seemed to calm down a little as well, though still a bit defensive. Raineir then noticed the scars on the dragon's right side, as well as the fact that the left wing looked broken. She slowly held her hand out to him. "Hey there, boy. You must have had a tough time with humans, huh? I can help you with that wing of yours, if you let me. I won't hurt you. I promise." The Sand Wraith seemed hesitant, but then he slowly pressed his snout into Raineir's palm. "Ok, I'm going to need help getting you back. I'm going to let out a call, so don't be startled when I do, ok?" The dragon nodded. Raineir let out a Night Fury call. Soon, Hiccup arrived on Toothless, and together with Raineir and Flash, they created a large sling which the two dragons carried the Sand Wraith to the village in. The dragon was hostile to the other villagers, but Raineir calmed him down. Gothi was able to fix and bandage his wing. Unfortunately, even when fully healed, Claw, as he was now named, would always fly abnormally, though he was forever grateful to the viking girl who helped him.

 

How Raineir met Fireball the Gronckle:

It was peaceful on Berk once again, now that the Berkians and Outcasts were allies and Dagur was no longer a threat. Raineir was getting ready for her early morning flight with Flash. She was just finishing tying her second braid when she heard a loud commotion outside. Well, Berk was almost peaceful. There was still the occasional viking arguement and of course, untrained dragons wreaking havoc. Raineir groaned. "Not again," she said. Hurrying outside, she looked around for the source. Sure enough, there was a crowd of vikings. Raineir then noticed what was annoying the vikings: a stray and agitated Gronckle. He was obviously untrained and not used to so many humans, as he was growling and whacking his bludgeon-like tail into a few buildings, also shooting lava balls all over the place. Hiccup was already there by the time she approached the scene. Though Hiccup was one of the best at training dragons (both he and Raineir were pretty much tied with that), he looked at her and said, "Rain, can you help me train this Gronckle?" Although Gronckles were normally relatively easy to train, this one was proving to be a difficult case. Raineir agreed, and slowly approached said dragon. The Gronckle noticed her prescence and growled lowly at her, pawing the ground with his feet. "Hey, it's ok, boy. We aren't gonna hurt you. You're safe here." She then carefully held her hand out, revealing a small rock. The Gronckle looked surprised at the peace offering, but then he ate the rock happily, shooting a fireball in the sky afterward. He then nudged Raineir's hand. She smiled. "That's what I'm gonna call you. Fireball."

 

How Raineir met Earthgrinder the Whispering Death:

On the little-known, forested island of Rock Pine (I just came up with that), there were few dragons. One of them was a Titan Whispering Death. He lived in the tunnels he dug deep below the land's surface. His name was Earthgrinder. Earthgrinder's tunnels were dug deep in the forest, and for good reason. Now although very few humans have come to Rock Pine in the past, Earthgrinder was still very cautious. From past experiences, he knew what humans were capable of. He was searching for food one day, when he heard a ruckus going on. It sounded like distressed dragons and... humans! Growling, Earthgrinder readied himself for the intruders. Out of seemingly nowhere, 6 or 7 dragon hunters emerged, looking for more dragons. Having captured the island's other dragons, they turned their attention to Earthgrinder. Wanting a rare, uniquely colored dragon, they charged at him. Earthgrinder fired at them and dodged their weapons, flying away from Rock Pine. He went searching for another island to live, and came upon Dragon's Edge. Not noticing the built structures, Earthgrinder went to the forest and dug tunnels to live in. The next day, he heard... human voices! He shot out the tunnel and prepared to attack those on his island. He saw 7... teenagers, it looked like. And were those dragons protecting them? One of them, girl with dark brown hair and violet eyes (Raineir), with a Skrill next to her, came up to him slowly and cautiously, putting her hand out gently. Earthgrinder wasn't sure what to think. After a few moments, he decided they were good and pressed his snout into her palm. Since meeting these young humans, Earthgrinder soon became used to living with them and their dragons, especially the girl, the first human to show him kindness.

 

 

 

 

About Raineir

 

Full Name: Raineir Feralsome

 

Age: 19-20 (by the time of How to Train Your Dragon 2)

 

Gender: Female

 

Height: Shorter than the average female. 5 ft, 2 in.

 

Hair Color: Dark brown, tied into two semi-long braids in the back. In HTTYD 3, she now has wavy, shoulder length dark brown hair, which now has a purple streak on the right side.

 

Eye Color: Violet

 

Wears: Long sleeve gray dress, dark green leggings, brown fur boots, and two belts, one around the waist and one cross body style in which she keeps her sword. She also wears a necklace with a silver pendant of a Skrill. In HTTYD 3, Raineir now wears a short sleeve gray and purple top, gray leggings, Skrill-inspired skirt, Skrill boots, Skrill arm bracers, and metal shoulder guards. She still wears the waist belt, but instead of just one cross-body belt, she has two that cross over each other. She also still has the Skrill necklace.

 

Dragons: A Skrill named Flash. Flash looks like a regular Skrill, but has noticeable scars on her sides from when she was wounded by dragon hunters, about a month or so before Hiccup met Toothless. Flash, in an act of graditude, accepted Raineir as her rider and life-long partner. Like Hiccup and Toothless, Raineir and Flash proved that friends aren't just limited to the same species. Flash's personality is a little different from the average Skrill, though being one, she can have a bit of an attitude, and like Toothless, can be sarcastic and snarky. Nevertheless, Flash is a very loyal partner to Raineir. She is very affectionate towards her human sister (Raineir) and other humans and dragons she trusts. She and Raineir are very much like siblings. Raineir also later befriends a Terrible Terror she names Scout, who she taught to "scout" out people, dragons, and objects using hand signals. Scout is very friendly and playful, though not afraid to fight if her friends are threatened. Sometime between Mildew's betrayal of Berk and the war between the Berkian, Outcasts, and Berserkers, Raineir found and helped Claw, a Sand Wraith lost and confused in the forests of Berk.

 

Other Dragons: In addition to her three main dragons, Raineir has also trained many others: Earthgrinder a titan Whispering Death, Silvermist a light violet Flightmare, Fireflower a violet Monstrous Nightmare, Lightning a violet and green Shockjaw, Fireball a Gronckle, Bluebird a Deadly Nadder, and many others.

 

Main weapon: Electro, her trusty Gronckle Iron sword. Upon meeting Flash for the first time, Raineir defended her from dragon hunters, and discovered that her sword has the ability to shoot out lightning bolts.

 

Personality: In the first movie (if she were in it), she was much like Hiccup, though not as awkward (sorry, Hiccup). She and Hiccup are still very similar to one another. Raineir is intelligent, sometimes sarcastic, and very witty. Like Astrid, she is fully willing to fiercely defend her friends. She is a very kind and good-hearted person, always ready to help out her friends and family, though not afraid to call them out when they get out of line. She doesn't like to kill unless it's absolutely necessary. Raineir, like Hiccup, likes to consider herself a peacemaker.

 

Unofficial, Official Title: The Lightning Rider

 

Fun fact about Raineir: For an unknown reason, Raineir has an immunity to lightning, and eletrical shocks don't hurt or affect her negatively in any way. She may have been born this way, or maybe she gained it early on in her life, both probably foreshadowing her becoming a Skrill rider.

You haven't say anything rude to me, so I personally don't have anything against you. Just remember that two wrongs don't make a right.

This isn't a recent development. It's been this way for years. Likewise, in many cases, the incident is caused by a REEEE from one person to another when nothing evidentially was said that should cause that. No matter what you do, someone out there is going to get offended. While we should be sensitive to others, we should also be aware that sometimes, the person who is "insulted" is not the offended party. We shouldn't assume that the person disagreeing is the individual being "mean" but critically analyze the conversation. I witnessed a situation recently where one individual got mad at someone for being rude when the person did nothing but state facts in an appropriate manner. We must be sensitive to others. We must also learn not to REEE when someone sneezes the wrong way if you get my analogy! :) Just my two cents. I totally agree with you, however. This is something we need throughout life.

Well said

I 100% agree with what Nakata said. Just because it’s something someone doesn’t like or doesn’t agree with doesn’t make it an excuse to start a fight. I know some fights have started because people think they are right and will continue to argue and argue with you until they feel they have proved you wrong. In fact I know some people who have left the forums for this specific reason. Blaming, name-calling, and treating others like their opinion is invalid makes this place a war-zone. Also just because a new player may seem suspicious or weird does not mean that they actually are. I hate it when people jump to conclusions about other people when they’ve barely gotten to know them. Consider how you treat people-it says a lot about you.

Sorry nakata

Just want to apologise to you, and say sorry if it seemed I'm snappy. Which never ever like that towards anyone. I agree about being nice. I try to reach out to anyone and talk, be nice , lend a ear.....growing up I was picked on about my weight and not being able to comprehend stuff. I am protective of my friends. Having a kid with autism opened my eyes wider to acceptance.

We need to be nice.. not Nick pick at little things. I just cut out the people who I don't care for. Things have been taken way way out of hand on forms... Before CoC I had one friend. But after everything in the past day... I'm taking a step back from SoD.  Giving my time to whats important in my life. n at  isn't my thing at all.  I'm not two faced nor fake. What ya see is what ya get.

I have meet so many people from so many countries and I feel very fortunate.

Adeu to ya for awhile and I totally agree with what you say.

Tip..step away from the computer and take a breath before you say something you regret... To anyone who gets upset

IIIs this about me? If it is I am sorry. I was trying to defend someone who did not like assumtions made against them but I know I sometimes go to far. Then a little later I tried to stop the possibility of it being started again once it was over but that attempt was based on a flat out mistake on my part. I hope I didn't ruin anyone's day or freak anyone out.

Right, can't add anything to this. I'm rather new here so I've also noticed more drama-like stuff lately, thankfully I was always too late XD

Anyway, I can't add anything interesting or don't know how to do so... well, end of the post.

Things you don't need to know about me and my dragons to stay alive: My viking's name is nightrainOfSummer. She's not really a character, rather a version of myself. I do have a story but it changes a lot so I don't write it here. My second viking's name is HighwayMintOvO. I named both after amazing songs (Nightrain by Guns N' Roses, Highway to H.ell by AC/DC and Highway Zero by Izzy Stradlin), Mint, our almighty goddess and OvO, the one and only stalker king Psycho Boneknapper.

Outside of game info: I love listening to music, most of my dragons are named after songs. I'm watching One Piece (finally at the current episode) and what I like the best about HTTYD are the dragons. My favourite dragons are the Skrill, the Stormcutter, the Triple Stryke and the Moldruffle. I also play Rise of Berk and I read Warrior Cats (in German). My favourite movie is Into The Wild (no, not only because of the soundtracks... but they're a big part of it too XD)
This is my dragon cave account.

My characters
Those are documents mainly about my dragons, but also adoptables and own characters. I'd like to thank everyone who made art for me, I'm always happy to see others' interpretations of my characters. I'll link them soon. I will also link the songs I named them after, if there's no music video I'll link a live video because they're more interesting to me. If there's no decent quality live video either I'll try to link an audio XD

From what I've seen it tends to come in waves. There's drama, things are calm for a while, there's drama, things are calm for a while. Hackers had the same patturn for a while too but I see fewer waves of them now.

Yeah, it sure is logical. Drama does trigger more drama and so on. A few weeks ago I thought "I don't understand what ppl mean with toxicity on the forums, are they all overly sensitive?" but I think I get what they mean now XD

That's true on the internet. On the SoD forums, to make sure it's accurate you gotta increase the intensity of that GIF a thousand times and then you're starting to get close to accurate LOL

Oh I don't know. I don't think it's quite that bad. Though it might depend on where in the internet you mostly spend your time to compare to SOD. I spend a lot of time on Youtube and I generally don't dare touch those comments. (Espessully the ones under science and religion videos. I don't know why people gotta try to shove one in the other all the time. It's like putting ketchup on skittles. Just why?)

Ive seen this drama too. Under the sorry topic, under the VIP tickets topic. Some ppl are really just dont care about others opinions. Or feeling offended about it and need to fight more for their own opinion. But this is nothing new to our world. Ive seen this often on other social medias like YouTube or Facebook. Our world is just really attracted into drama. I wonder why...it brings only bad energy to everyone.

This is Kara

Her Story :

Kara is a dragonandriod who was build to do the work for her owner/master. He mistreated her alomst every day. Of course then to most ppl she is just a machine. A machine who does everything and cant say no. Bcs this is her program. They think a machine cant feel anyway. But Kara was much more then just a machine. And one day she opened her eyes. She dont want to listen to her owner/master anymore. She wants to make her own decisions and want to be free. Kara escaped from the place where she once used to be. Now she gets hunted, they want to catch her and reset her memory. They think it is just a error in her progarm that needs a fix. She is allways escaping and searching for the paradise, where she can be free. Her world is full with andriods who are slaves to the living folks. She is one of a few, who opened their eyes and escaped from this censored. These Andriods also get hated by a lot ppl. But the true monsters are not the andriods.

(This is a mix between how to train your dragon and Detriot : Become Human, in my story then Detriot : Become Dragon. The story isnt completly maked from my own. It is more a fan story based on a character in Detriot. I know its weird but I love it xD. I just became a big fan of this emotional game)

 

 

 

 

Drawings

(hand drawn)

 

 

~About Me~    (If anybody cares)

 

Im a shy, young adult Woman (I guess? Dont feel so different as adult.) who just loves dragons.

Im not really open to ppl in real live. Im also bit much silent in game.

I need nice, friendly ppl arround me, who wants to talk a lot to get me out of my shell.

My favorite thing is doing drawings. (Right now only dragons, I used to draw animals when I was younger.)

Favorite color is blue of course. But I almost love all colors so long they are bright and strong.

Also Im an anime lover. One of my favorite is Tokyo Ghoul (I did even draw a Ken Kaneki Stormcutter.)

                                                      (Dont ask me why xD)

Agreed. People are just ignorant creatures who can't learn to accept one another's differences. Funny when that comes from me but still. Humans will find anything small to argue about, like who gets the last slice of pizza, or who wins the gold medal. It's sad that we people have to be so egotistical and right about every little thing. (still funny when it comes from me).

True

Yep, ppl cant unterstand each other. For most is the only awnser war. But over all why do they care so much for small things? In my opinion some stuff shouldnt matter at all. There is more important stuff in real life to care about. Or at least for me. Maybe it doesnt count for everybody.

TBH, that thread shouldn't have blown out of proportions in the first place. There was little to no foundation for offense.

 

As for why...I'd talk about my paper, which i did on why people are ruder on the internet, but i'm not interested in giving you a bunch of information.

Forgive me. I was tired at the moment. My paper concluded that people who write posts in anonymity online tend to be ruder. When you hide behind a computer, and don't have someone stomping down your door irl because you insulted them on Facebook or Youtube, there's a loss of accountability. There were several kinds, though i forget the names. However, the paper was based on a few studies and it's impossible to generalize an entire population of people and their mindsets based on studies.

 

And each situation is different. That particular thread, as I mentioned, shouldn't have been blown out of proportion, but it did :)

Ah now I see

Well the VIP thing has gone wrong bcs the ppl where confused. Some where even offended about it bcs it was a party for adults. But the game is for kids. To me not really a big deal. I know some adults who play this game too. To understand the Sorry one you need to know what happend behind the forum. I used to know the writer of it. I dont know what exactly happend but can imagine what must have happend there again.

Oh, I understood this, the part "I don't understand where and why it went wrong" was about the sorry thread XD well, that explains it, it just looked like they'd attack others (and not the person who created the thread) randomly for something I don't understand. I did think there would be things I don't know but that was even more random for me to suspect they even went after the creator of the thread.

On a forum, there'll always be people who can't handle disagreements, discussions or anything like that. But I personally have never seen it like this on any other forum I've been on, and this even includes Neopets' garbage boards. It's completely perplexing how some people here can take offense at a simple disagreement and instantly take up the role of victim of-- what was it again? Opinions? I don't know anymore.

 

It's honestly become some form of tumblr-lite, and about equally unimportant subject matters. I feel that a lot of these people are projecting onto others. Hard. 

 

Not everything has to warrant a lenghty back-and-forth just because someone said a thing someone else doesn't like. Not everything has to be treated like a terrible personal insult. The worst thing is that 'drama' starts because of this. Someone shares a harmless opinion and someone else goes into full counter-attack mode because of it, leaving the 'opinion haver' to defend themselves as the victim portrays them as a bad guy, even if it's an opinion as harmless as "I don't like X".  It's bizarre, honestly.

 

tl;dr too many people on this forum take everything they read personally and in the absolute worst faith possible, instead of considering that maybe not everything someone says has to be a personal insult. I think that if some people on here gave others the benefit of the doubt and were open for deliberation, rather than projecting and playing the professional victim, the atmosphere here would improve massively.

It's true, I'm also on a forum of a band whose fans are known for being extremely know-it-all and unaccepting of others' opinions and I have seen drama there but not as much as here. It gets really ridiculous at times.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this! And you're right, people can be really know-it-all-y and desperately want to be 'correct' on this forum. I wish that some people would learn that it's okay to be wrong sometimes. There's no shame in admitting a mistake, or that an opinion wasn't a good one. It's fine to agree to disagree.

I have to agree. I know when I firast joined that I got on the bad side of one of the seniors. It was a total accident, but I was dealing wit a lot of issues irl and when she started yelling at me I snapped and yelled back. I have regretted it since then, and whenever I see seniors picking in newbies like that, I get frustrated. Just because they are new doens't mean they don't matter, we have all been the new one at some point in our lives.

Although we can't stop the issue, I think we can do something about it by encourageing newbies and treating them the way we wish that we had been treated when we first arrived.

My girl Rhei

by me

 

 

Name Rheileen
(Include Photo/Screenshot)
Rhei has dark copper blonde hair, that in certian lights may appear to be brown, it hangs down slightly over her aqua eyes, the left of which has three scars running over it from an incident with a skrill when she was a child. Her body and face were scarred during multiple stages of her younger life, so she tends to cover up, and wears a long sleeved black dress/tunic, leggings, gloves/bracers, boots, and a red face scarf. Rhei also loves hoodies, and will most likely be seen wearing a black nightfury hood. Lastly, when she flys at high speeds, Rhei tends to wear a pair of goggles, which otherwise, may either danfgel around her neck, alongside her family medalion, or sit in the pouch she has on her belt.
She carries twin sabres as her weapon of choice.
 
Age: 16
 
 
Gender: Female
 
 
Personality: Rhei is a hardworker, and rather mature for her age, this doesn't stop her from loving to kick back and goof off however, and she loves hanging out with people like herself, or even new groups. She works best in a classroom, or team enviorment. Whule she loves free time, she can never truely relax, because her brain is always racing a mile a minute. Rhei loves reading, and enjoys seeking out the parallels between the real world, and that of books. Including finding her role in each story, and trying to pinpoint the major characters, she may or may not talk about this.
While Rhei is typically peacefull and doesn't like picking fights, she will 100% stand up in a fight, and finds it hard to back down, she has a rather quick temper, and as such, won't leave a fight till she has managed to make the other guy remember to not try that sort of thing again. She is also highly protective of her friends and dragons.
  
 
Skills: She is highly trained in most forms of sword-fighting, and knows some acrobatics and martial arts, she is a relatively good cook, and an up and coming healer. So while her healing skills aren't the best, she can manage in a pinch, and keep you alive until a real healer is around. Also, she is an up and coming master of speaking Dragonese.
 
 
Weaknesses: Rhei has a strong fear of falling, and therefor of heights. If however she is on her dragon, the fear will subside, and she can manage. She is a poor swimmer, and can get anxious if grabbed in a dragons claws, this is mostly due however to her time fighting and fearing dragons as a child.
 
 
Other: Rhei is not native of Berk, and actually comes from a French settlement further south. Fortunately, she learned Norse from visiting traders, so this means she is skilled in speaking French as well as Norse.

 

 

Yashia (Also by me)

 

Form pending.

 

I also have more art done by me! It will be awhile in the

comming however, as I need to finish it still. (I tend to put

that off I am afraid.

You're right xd

I believe you've seen me around, i wanted to apologize a while ago for saying you were a hacker but i got chat ban for ridiculous reasons xD the saddle thing and the huge bubbles u got got me confused while racing xd 

But now i've found u, wanted to apologize for that. <3

(this was for LilyStark but i messed up XD)

 

Regardless of the topic:

I agree with everything in this post but at the same time i feel like it wont do any good :/ as much as we want it to, sod is a rlly big community and trying to get ppl to listen to this important topic is like trying to make ppl in the real world be better people and get along :/ sadly that's how things are >.< i do hope it makes a difference, sod is my comfort zone after a long hard day and hopefully we can make it peaceful and friendly again for new players <3

Personally my new player experience was fantastic and everybody wanted to be friends but keeping in mind this was over 4 years ago, now the community has gotten bigger and some ppl just want to pick on the newbies now :/

I totally agree with this. I know a lot of people have heard of the Golden Rule: Treat others as you want to be treated. If people would just follow that simple yet very wise saying things would be so much better. There's no excuse to be mean to anyone, ever. Everyone should just try their best to put themselves in the other person's shoes and treat them as they themselves want to be treated.

 

Since I'm here, I'd like to apologize for the drama on that VIP thread. I feel partially responsible for what happened because I know should've just not replied at all. Things got out of hand really fast and it could've been avoided if I'd just never replied. Sorry everyone. I hope you all can forgive me. :)

Yes, absolutely. I feel that empathy is a rare thing, but it's there. Unfortunately, there are people in the world who don't think of other people, only themselves. It's a divided world that we live in, but every act of kindness is a step towards a better place.

Unfortunately empathy is becoming rarer and rarer, in real life and on the internet. It's really rare on the internet. A lot of people think that just because they can hide behind a screen and can't see the other person that gives them a right to say anything they want. It's really sad. It's nice to know that there are people who genuinely care about others' feelings.

 

Since I can't edit my orginal post I'll make a clarifcation here.

I wanted to clarify that when I said "I shouldn't have replied at all" I didn't mean the thread itself. I meant the reply to my comment.

Empathy is becoming rarer? As respectfully as I can I disagree. This seems like the "the old days were better" thing that happens. Just because the internet concentrates everything (to varying degrees) doesn't mean people are worse. I can think of a lot of time periods where I would pick now rather then then to live in. Some of them being rather recent. For all I know maybe the forum IS an aggressive one compared to others but if so it's a really bad sample to take from. I am really bugged when people state the world is going downhill. It's not a perfect place to be sure and progress is a two step forward one step back but why do people have so much pessimism? Is this not how it has always been? Why does a few arguments on some forum mean the whole world is tainted? Is it the news? Cuz that exaggerates things.

I didn't mean the whole "the good old days were better" thing. I get annoyed by that saying pretty quickly because some people use it to put down newer technology and young people. I'd never use it. I just meant that people on the internet can be really rude. I've seen it on the forum, my sister watches youtube videos and reads the comments and people go after each other there, and my mom and sister have Facebook and have told me about the drama that happens there. I've also heard about drama that happens elsewhere on the internet. There are a lot of people who think that just because they can't see the person, it's ok to tell them off.

 

I'm not trying to be pessimisstic. I'm just saying how I see it. I know others might have a different opinion. I think people's attitudes are getting worse because you hear of a lot more crime nowadays than you use to. For example, parents used to be able to let their kids play outside without supervision, walk to school and the park alone, ect without worrying their kid would be kidnapped. Nowadays it's way too dangerous to do that. You also hear of a lot more shootings nowadays than in the past. However, I'm not saying everyone in the world is bad. I know that there are good people out there.
