Well, I just found out about a new PERMANENT forum feature: Not being able to edit posts.


Siren (SoD admin):

"Hi 3angels6225, unfortunately there is no option for users to be able to edit their posts. We implemented this to reduce the spamming on our forum.. We hope you understand that this is a permanent fixture on the forum. "


source: http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/trouble-editing-posts-admins-plz-read


My main reasons for editing posts:

Clan pages

art threads

rp threads

voting threads

story pages

typo's, spelling errors, moving topics


I'd honestly rather have spamming then to not edit my pages.



All who want to keep the ability to edit their own threads, please say so!

Wouldn't being able to edit REDUCE spam, because there would be less need to create new posts to keep your information current and visible?

Being able to edit is a pretty essential forum feature...

When a petsim I go on every now and then implemented the edit option to their forums, communications became cleaner.

Fifth is a male Gronkle named Morn.

Sixth is a male Thunderdrum named Enabran.

This is so difficult for

This is so difficult for people who love making roleplays like me we cant say if the roleplay is closed and if you want to add something to a post you have to make a WHOLE NOTHER POST I mean its just annoying.....


Let's get right to buisness, with...

My Dragon Cave



"Are you, are you.

Coming to the tree

Where they stung up a man, they say he murdered three

Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight, in the Hanging Tree.


Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

Where the dead man called out for his love to flee

Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight, in the Hanging Tree


Are you, are you

coming to the tree

Where I told you to run, so we'd both be free

Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight, in the Hanging Tree


Are you, are you

coming to the tree

Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me

Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight, in the Hanging Tree"

When a math quiz is announced.

And then I get the paper back and I'm all like.

And my friends are all like

And the teacher's all like



Since the first three of these seven dragons have been stolen, I'm leaving Anduril (Drawn by The Ecliptic Eight) to watch them.

Natt Mord the Hypnotic Night Catcher adopted from Golden Scarlet. I wrote my butt of trying to adopt this, so there will be salt if this get's stolen.

Same for Advarsel. Except she's an Ominous Storm Rider, still from Golden Scarlet. Again, if she get's stolen, it will be Saltageddon 2015.

Vindfjaer by Goldenfury360! PS. It's a Windsong ;)

Simon the Screeching Hunchback by Chameishida! He's so adorably deadly, ain't he?

Canopy the Spacial Beauty adopted from KrazyKira. His nickname is the Einstein dragon.

Aang the Legendary Air Jabberjaw adopted from The Ecliptic Eight. Wow that's a mouthful!

 Sirius the Star Fury adopted from goldfish50!

 Electrifier spore-ized, made by BeaReptileLover!

Don't Eat My Back/Yellow Snow/ Sub-Zero adopted from Iron Man 2000! And I bet you can guess where I got all those names from!

 Darude the Paranoid Sandskritter made by NightmareRebuff



You made it to the end! You get a cake!

yea no hate on the admins

no hate on the admins there awesome people but this was a bad idea because you cant delete posts either

This post was brought to you by skrill. If  you need a electrician that doesn't have hands and is a scaly electric animal with wings, call


1-800-howdidavikinggetaphone.com. call now for a 1% discount.

Prices as low as 1 bazillion dollars!

If you experence death, you will not be entitled to any compensation, neither will your family.

Ask your plumber if skrill electricians is right for you.

Batteries not included because it does not need them.

Do not leave small children in the reach of skrill or it will eat them.

So, ask your plumber if skrill is right for you, because we wont care if its not.

Skrill electricians the best dragon electricians in Berk.



It may not be the Flightmare!


Very skilled electricans. The discount was a lifesaver,and now I can enjoy sleeping in my cardboard box.

Not only did they fix my lamp, they even fixed my children and they are now much quietter, sleeping like angels. My home is even more comfy-er especaially now that i cant feel my arms and legs :D My plumber friends  would approve of this service, but too bad they don't exist anymore :D Thank Thor they don't need batteries, they're jut too expensive these days.


10/10 best service ever. They also make great lighting 



8/10 I thought their service was awesome! Then again I'm a berserker so maybe I just liked seeing the skrill

although it did try to eat my cat...and my friends...and anyone who made eye contact



Skrill electrician's are the best! I called them over to Mildew's house a few days ago after he complained about customer service, they fixed every single one of the problems over there! The old man's quieter, sleeping quite peacefully, and he never complains about anything now! Absolutely wonderful job for the price! 10/10 Skrill electricians will really bring you an electrifying solution!


-Garth of Izar


I just barely bought a Skrill man that's a low price for such an amazing electric master. And guess what it does not need batteries! But though my cat did go missing in the last few days. 


but these electrician are perfect.
I'm not really sure what an electrician is or what they do, and my own Skrill doesn't either, so we sent Terror Mail to the Electrician Skrill, seeing as it's a highly recommended service. Only took two days to get here, which is speedy for customer service lately, and set right to work. The charred and blasted walls make my hut look a lot nicer than it did before, and the big storm caused by the electrician got rid of all my unfriendly neighbors. And, oddly enough, it seems that my own Skrill has been blessed with children only a few weeks after the electrician's visit. All in all, definitely a great service!
-Screaming Death Lover
"I always wanted to have light on my house, but I was too poor. I only had 10 coins on my pocket! But thanks to that amazing discount of 1 bazillion dollars, I got saved! Now I can have him light up my room when I sleep on my big coffee cup. Wait what? Did we have coffee on the viking age? Who cares. I used it to scare  my neighbors on the next doors, and it was worth it. I'll also keep it as a pet, and I'll teach my Skrill how to knit clothing. Thanks for wasting your time to read my review. You just lost 10 hours of your life. Baibai. Anyways, cookies anyone? No? Eh eh eh? Okay.
P.S. Amazing service. 10/10!!!
-NarixuZen the Japanese Feather"
Skrill electricians is the best ever! Great service. All though my pet hamsters did escape soon after the electrician left  
I will have to figure out how they ripped that big hole in their cage and where all those scorch marks came from...hmmmm Anyway skrill electricians is definitely the best! 10/10


Skrill electricians are amazing! They fixed my rabbit from eating his litter, however, he does seem to have been sleeping for a very long time. Three months exactly. I never have to worry about anything for electricity again, thanks to Skrill Electricians! They did blow up my house however, so I have to take away half a point for that. They also made it so my neighbors don’t bother me any more! They moved away because my electrician was “too deadly” Bah! Deadly? No! Over all, I rate this a 9.5! Chicken rates it a 9.7! 




I don't remember calling one but he did come.

My yaks both got an afro and my sheep have never looked fluffier even tho a couple went missing but they probably ran away.

I got a bonus too!! Mildew is now too scared to call my dragon stupid again so that's a plus! Thank you skrill electritian!!




I called using my stone brick and straight away the Skrill came! I spent all my precious money on chicken nuggets, so the discount of a bazillion dollars really saved me. I got to just sleep in bed whilst the Skrill was hard at work, and when I woke up, I was extremely comfortable, thanks to the Skrill blessing me with a new house. I now love sleeping in my Gronckle Iron box. It's wonderfully metally and comfy. I need to figure out what happened to my last 100 chicken nuggets though, I bought a huge stock and now they're gone. And Mildew is fixed! He decided he likes dragons so much that he sleeps on the snow in Icestorm Island, never moving, sleeping like an angel he is (a wrinkly old angel).

100/10 Skrill Electricians are the best.




Skrill Electricans are the best! One day, after a storm, my house almost collapsed of old age and the effects of the storm. I was in dispair, so I called Skrill Electricans. When they arrived, I fell asleep, and when I woke up, my house was completely fixed! It was beautifully done, made out of hay, and on fire!! It was the prettiest thing I ever saw. And the smoke billowing from it made me cough, but I loved it! Eventually it did burn down, but I payed them all I had! Skrill Electricans all the way!




The Skrill Electricians have me an electrifying solution to a very dark and char free home! Now my home is much brighter! Now I just sleep outside!
I was short on money so the discount of a bazillion dollars saved me! They're wonderful service inspired me to use the money I saved with the discount to buy my own skrill! Thank you Skrill Electricians!

No one wants to wade through

No one wants to wade through the messages of a thread to see if an update to the original has been posted, specifically in the clan threads where you are looking through many pages of messages in the hopes that you'll find the ONE that says "recruiting is open/closed" or an update to the original post---maybe lowered requirements, etc.

If they can't edit that, then EVERY time a clan needs to update their recruitment status, or requirements, without editing, they'll have two options:

The first option is that the original poster will have to repeat themselves 100x for those who don't feel like wading through multiple pages of responses and looking for that one post, or who CAN'T do it well because they're on mobile.  Those people will be fielding "are you recruiting?" messages all day long and that will get annoying, which will lead to utilization of the next option...

The second option is to create a new thread for your recruitment (or whatever else you are doing) every time you change something, put a date in the title, and create a new thread for each open/closed recruiting, policy change, etc.  Which would create a LOT of additional posts, as the more active clans strive to keep their information easily accessible.
I've been moderating and running forums sites for 13 years, some of them with larger communities than even SoD, and while I understand the need to do what you can do help avoid spamming, this seems counterintuitive to that goal.  With the forums being the only real way to communicate with other players, the added hassle of creating new threads or wading through the others will have a detrimental effect on the social aspect of the game.

Other suggestions to combat spamming (I'll post these in suggestions forums as well:

  • Limit on how many new threads can be started by an individual within a given time period-like, 1-2 threads an hour.  Most people don't need to create multiple new threads at once.
  • Don't let new forum accounts start new threads for x amount of hours after creation (but allow them to reply immediately, since most people do not set up their forum accounts to create a new thread but to respond to existing threads).   
  • Create some sort of strike system for accounts-if that account has been marked for spamming, initiate a 3 strikes rule before the account is banned from the forums.  It doesn't stop the problem of new forum accounts being made, but the other checks would help curb the spamming.

    **PLEASE don't take away the ability to edit our posts and fix our typos and keep our information up to date and readily accessible to viewers.

WHAT!? NO! Editing my posts is crucial to me. Having typos is one of my pet peeves, and I only seem to find them after I hit send. This is going to drive me nuts. I like adding things in too, like I just did now, with this! :D


I also have this really weird pet peeve about my Skrill and I keep being unhappy with the colors and changing them. I have problems.

Editing posts is an essential

Editing posts is an essential feature.  Without it, more spam will be created because people can't edit posts to fix typos and edit topics.


This means people will have to make additional posts to correct their previous posts.


And sometimes, lazy people don't bother to read entire threads and read just the first post. If the first post isn't current and up to date, then those who read just the first post could mistakenly sign up for a closed roleplay, or request art from someone who's not accepting requests any longer, or try to join a closed clan, etc.


I know I'll really miss this feature. =( I'm always making typos, and I'll be embarrassed if I can't fix them.

I appreciate how the admins are trying to make SoD a better place and reduce spam, but I'm not quite sure how not being able to edit will help. :( I definitely think that we should be able to edit our posts.

This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. How does not being able to edit reduce spam? And now clan, art, fanfiction, RP etc. threads are going to have a MAJOR problem.

Aria Winterson


Name: Ariathena Winterson (mostly known as Aria)

Nicknames/Titles: Ari

Gender: Female

Age: 15

Height: 145cm/4'7

Weight: 44kg/97 pounds

Appearance: Straight red hair with dark streaks, bright green eyes, pale skin, a smattering of freckles across her nose and a small case of acne on her forehead. She usually wears dark pink war paint around her right eye. Her outfit has the wings and fins of Hiccup's flight suit designed into it for use at any time, courtesy of the original maker himself.

Home: Berk

Favourite Dragon(s): Deadly Nadder

Hobbies/Interests: Exploring, racing, flying with Brynhild

Dragons: Brynhild (female Deadly Nadder; also her first dragon), Neptune (male Scauldron)

Personality: If there was one word to describe Aria, it would be 'fire'. With a passionate heart and brave soul, she can get a bit carried away sometimes and charge into situations without thinking it through first. However, she only really loses her senses when someone she loves is in danger. This causes her to act rashly and on impulse, which although sometimes does help the situation, it usually just lands her in even more dangerous positions.

Some people describe her as 'wild', partially because of her love for exploring, but also because of her rebelliousness. While she does follow orders in serious combat situations, aside from that, she usually doesn't listen to anyone except herself, especially if they're in the way of her goals.

She's also a very competitive person; her fiery side is really shown during races and tournaments. She's a gracious loser, though, and doesn't hold a grudge against those who beat her.

She is neither extroverted nor introverted, but rather somewhere in between. Although around others she's usually more subdued, with her friends and family she's the life of the party. She like to view the glass as half full rather than half empty — especially when it comes to her usual dangerous experiments.

Strengths: Brave, passionate, optimistic, friendly

Weaknesses: Insecure. Not a good fighter. Also doesn't get along with most ice and Strike Class dragons.

Abilities: Skilled flyer and racer, good at exploring, expert dragon trainer

Weapons: Shield 

History: (TBA)


"I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me."

I am against this as well.

I am against this as well. You won't reduce spam by making us unable to edit. And punishing the other members who do right isn't the right way to do anything. It'll probably create even more spam since users will need to repost to edit. Here are some other solutions:


  • Make a post limit (4 per hour for new accounts)
  • Assign forum moderators
  • Make new posts need to be approved.


This is seriously not the way to do it. I'll be messaging on the FB wall as well, since the opinions there seem to make the most difference.

I completely agree!

I completely agree! This new feature is outrageous! Honestly, I don't see how being unable to edit our exisiting posts will reduce spam, but rather increase it, as it forces players to create new posts and topics. One of my top pet peeves is also typos, as previously mentioned by another player, and I never seem to notice them until I submit my reply. To add to the growing frustration, this also creates many difficult situations for players who are responsible for maintaining a clan page, role play, or art thread. Overall, I believe that this new feature is unnecessary, and is not going to reduce the amount of spam posted on the School of Dragons forum.







Life here is amazing, just not for the faint of heart.

How in the world does....

How in the world does being able to edit a post reduce spam?

I LOVED the edit feature.  I could fix my typos (very handy when you are trying to type something half asleep, lol), could go back in to say I made a mistake and don't need something from the post I had made, etc.  

I'm sorry, but this is not a good decision.  I know they are doing their best to help, but edit is a necessary, key feature of these forums.  All this is going to do is create MORE posts.

Please SOD, there is a lot that needs fixing on this game, but the ability to edit posts on the forum is NOT one of them.  Don't fix that which is not broken.



edit: See, I just had to come back to this post to re-word something I had written.  I would have had to make a whole new post to fix my message if I hadn't had access to the edit button.

Editing is a must

Any good writer knows the crucial importance of editing.  Especially if I have an additional thought or agree with a replier, it actually reduces the length of threads if you can continue adding to your thoughts without having to reply and reply and reply to different posts.  Talk about reducing spam and redundant posts.  Please don't get rid of editing!

*Psst... What is a subject?*

Okay... Let me get this straight. Somehow, letting me NOT edit my posts will reduce spam? I don't think so.
Did any of you guys stop to think that maybe they're not doing this to "reduce spam"? That there's another reason?

We need the edit button back! >:(


How are people supposed to edit their artp ages? Just make new ones? 

How are clans supposed to edit clan pages? Just make a dozen new ones?!


If anything this will add to the spam. Insted of maintaining a single clan page, we will have to create a dozen more!

I'd rather have spam >.<


Please give us the edit button back! Admins please listen!

I believe it adds to spam. Now we have to make 20 Clan pages since it constantly requires changing

Yes this is a very stupid

Yes this is a very stupid idea.  Removing the Edit button will only add to the spam, because now I have to make a million art threads instead of just one.  Also every Clan has to make a new thread every time their status changes--which is constantly.  Quite frankly this doesn't make a lick of sense in part of the admins.  How exactly is this preventing spam?  And is spam really that much of a problem on these forums?  Well it's going to be now that the Edit button is gone, that's for sure.

Removing the edit button

Removing the edit button almost makes these boards unusable for active clan, art, and RP boards. All modern forums should have the edit functionality. I'm afraid everyone may start reaching out to other sites or a fan site forum in order to even continue properly communicating. And that takes away from us players being active and in direct contact with the admins.
