Nomination - Silverweed San
I would like to nominate... Silverweed San!
The reason why I would nominate Silverweed San is because she does dragon training everyday and she flies with her dragons while the other are doing a stable quest.
She also shows that she deserves to be 'Viking of the Week' because she takes care of all her dragons. She feeds and plays with the dragons that are unhappy or hungry.
Since she supports the game a lot, and she's bought all the dragons, she showed that she is prepared and ready for 'Viking of the Week.'
Silverweed has also shown honesty, kindness, respect, and she is also responsible to the game and not trying to use hacks like other people do. She is fair, she also greets her in-game friends and would always show support to all vikings that love to be around her due to being an amazing rider who always goes out completing mysterious adventures and journies to be discovered along with the expansion packs.
Silverweed San would be the best 'Viking of the Week' due to lots of reasons reffering to braveness, intelligence, honesty, and being a strong viking when it comes to problem solving situations.
She should be "Viking of the Week" she deserves it!
Someone who makes videos expressing strong encouragement for backward racing is not a honest nor worthy person to be a Viking of the week. Not to mention that she uses any and all glitches to win. Her view is if you can do it without a hack it's not cheating . Now Vikings also have to submit themselves and the Viking of the week has been a joke. No one who really deserves such a honor even applies for this . The deserving Vikings do not seek recognition .Now if you do not believe any of what I say simply watch silver weed s videos to see her own proof of this behavior.
and besides, viking of the week is barely ever updated. I had it for a few months straight and got annoyed it was there for so long, then after a while they even changed my description to something I never even said O.O And the way they wrote it made me sound like I didn't know how to type... hahaha
As others have mentioned she is known to encourage cheating.
Not only that but in her Mudraker video she jokes about something incredibly gross and uses the r-word which both of those things really effect me. I really don't want to see someone like that be recognized as a great person.
Don't forget the whole spike thing in the Slithersong video. :/
Oh gosh I don't even want to know what that is. After the Mudraker video I stopped watchingnher stuff all together.
Also, a friend just reminded me of the fact her Groncicle is nammed something I can't even repeat on here...
Yeah, and she's galavanting around with that pretty visible in her signature last time I checked. I never really liked silverweed.. and she's certainly not redeeming herself.
I asked her why she named it that once, and she said "Because I wanted to see if a kid's game would allow it."
Just.. why try in the first place? ._.
...What was wrong with that? I burst out laughing at that! I mean, she didn't say anything bad or inappropriate; she just stated the truth. And the truth is, that looks like it hurts. On a number of dragons, the creators really don't think about, um...where the Viking is sitting. XD
Edit: There seems to have been some confusion about this comment. This is made in response to what Zero said about the spike in the Slithersong video, which I don't think was inappropriate in any way. It was a good thing to point out and funny to boot. I made no comment about the Mudraker video. Misusing the r-word is definitely inappropriate and never funny. I have chewed people out on the forum for this myself, and I would never defend it.
I am afraid that I disagree a little. Seems like you only noticed that single tree, but not the whole forest, which means you go in the details, but not into the point.
Like others mentioned, Silverweed uploaded a video about backwards racing, it really is considered as cheating. The fact is not fair, too, about that backwards thing. Have you even seen the Golden Toothless video? Yeah. She used a hacked dragon for 'artistic purposes', even though she didn't hack it herself. Yes, it was a gift from someone, but THEN it was HER responsiblity for doing something without thinking, like, she got hacked and got a timberjack on her account. Have you noticed at her speed boosts? No wonder she's not using them during race videos with dragons, you never know, she might use them when she's not recording, just a small prediction, however I can't guarantee it's true. Silverweed actually had fault at many things, that's what they say. On the other hand, she posted multiple things about inappropriate things that aren't allowed to be viewed or heard by young viewers. Well, at some videos, they were already warned about future swearing, etc. But at a fan-made video of PewDiePie, she showed an inappropriate thing, it was censored, though, but it really doesn't do anything. It was a private part of the human body, it's not allowed for young children to see these, it's bad. At 2 dragon videos, as far as I know, she said some inappropriate things as well. You can't always say that she's good at everything.
Have I said anything about Silverweed being a cheater because she plays the game differently than me? No. Plus I said there's a small prediction of her using speed boosts without we know it actually, even when she is using a good dragon, for example. I want to be informative about the fact that, using shortcuts is also considered as cheating, and she did use shortcuts, not only when she is practising herself, so it's a good reason the admins fixed the most shortcuts. I am not saying that Silverweed is cheating no matter what she does, but for the shortcut and backwards racing itself.
Yeah, she didn't really abuse the game for the golden toothless, but things were happening at the same time. She already had her account at risk. If you're still new to her channel, just watch all her videos about SoD and then decide. If you haven't watched any videos about that problem, here are some:
The Immortals music video < At a later phase, she used a white toothless and was flying with players with hacked dragons
Weird or not, no one would support the hackers for cheating on racing, hacking resources to get dragons, etc. and even hacking the players. That music video above actually was like a "cooperating" with some hackers that had those white Toothless dragons etc.
Oh, say what? This is now my opinion, but those who use hacked dragon skins, saddles etc. (crystal deadly nadder, white/gold/etc. color Toothless, gold saddles from the tourament, etc.) are actually some things anyone can do by using a program and involve with coding, earned by others, not found out by theirselves, so they aren't really hackers. Why? Because the program itself does the job, and it's of course created by someone to do the job. Same goes with game generators/hack tools that give free game currency for players, that especially isn't considered as hacking, but it's a kind of cheat. These tools are actually made by hackers, those are the REAL hackers. So those who download these tools are unable to do anything, plus they are just normal players that use the tools and do the job, but those who hack the resources and stuff with their own ways, they are considered as hackers, they might also have knowledge of accessing a game account using the same method.
Also, if you think you know Silverweed very well, that doesn't mean you'll have to let your insticts and guard down. You can even fall on the most obvious traps. You are smart and you know it, so always think with logic, and be very careful on what might come your way. Some people on the internet aren't the ones you think they are.
"You should thank Silverweed because she was the reason why you had these awesome features added into the game."
Uuummmm I'm sorry, but do you think Silverweed is the reason features get added to this game?!?!?! O.o If that is true, please know that that is absolutely not true in any way, shape, or form.
Silverweed is just another player like all the rest of us, but happens to be a player (like some others) who make videos about the game. Sadly, she is one who does backwards racing and promotes others to do the same, and that has ruined her reputation in the game BECAUSE BACKWARDS RACING IS CHEATING and has been confirmed by an admin of this forum and game that it should not be used. If you want to see my screenshot of exactly what the admin said, I will gladly search for it. But backwards racing is 100% cheating. And after her video of backwards racing was shown to the admins, that track was changed so that people like her couldn't backwards race like that anymore.
No, Silverweed was not the first to learn it, she likely just learned it from watching other players who use the same cheat. There are a lot of people who cheat by backwards racing in the game, and none of them have my (and the majority of players) respect because of it. If someone has true skill in this game, then they do not have to resort to backwards racing, jumping, hacking, or even speed boosting to win a race (keep in mind that the only thing in that list that is not cheating, is the speed boosting, but boosting does not gain respect from most players).
The moment I saw this, I knew there was going to be people loving and hating on this person who I find deserving of neither. She's financially supported this game in a major way and done much to draw attention to its features, and in how she's garnered attention, her antics have done nothing but helped the game. However, she does take advantages of glitches in a way that I find unsatisfactory and fails to report hackers who are her "friends." Not to mention the Groncicle's name. (She deserves to have that dragon taken away, and I don't know why SoD continues to allow that.) But she's not malicious, she doesn't hack at all, and she's never, oh...exploited the email system to get gems. Like at least half the people who criticized her actions did prior to the email limit. (The double standards people have sometimes...)
Point is, she's not a perfect person, not even an admirable one, and her sense of humor lacks a sense of taste...or child sensitivity. (Although I think the fact that English is not her first language factors into that detail. My Swiss uncle doesn't have much of a sense of that in the English language, either, and drops English cuss words like candy in front of my younger cousins. It's cringeworthy.) Sometimes she makes me laugh, other times she's irritating, and other times I just roll my eyes or enjoy the view. I can't hate her, but I can't like her. I just appreciate that she makes her videos about the releases. But she's been a huge help to the game simply by making the videos she makes and paying the money she pays. I think she deserves Viking of the Week at least for that. So long as it's just for a week and then we move on to someone else. A little recognition, and then we move on to someone else who's done less good but has behaved better.
That, and get that Groncicle deleted. (That thing is the only thing she's very done that legitimately made me angry, not just annoyed. She needs, like, a temporary suspension for that or something. Foreign language or not, got to make an example.) -_-
But as pointed out above, the forum doesn't really "do" Viking of the Week anymore, so it's all kind of a mute point, anyway.
SilverWeed is an old friend of mine, i saw her friend purpleguy the hacker she has a deathsong called purple guy to, when i saw purple he had a golden toothless, and silverweed kept talking about golden toothless. When i raced her, she used boosts on toothless, everytime someone got a little bit in frunt of her, she boosted at start too at very start. She has lots of friends, they all follow her around, and when someone shoots at her, she says stop shooting me, and gets angry. So to me i think silver should not get, VotW.
"Silverweed has also shown honesty, kindness, respect, and she is also responsible to the game and not trying to use hacks like other people do."
Honesty? Respect? Not trying to use hacks? That's quite laughable. She has been proven mutlitple times to support cheating and has been known to exploit glitches in the game. While she is not intentionally malicious, she is shown not to be the most trustworthy or honorary player. She thinks that hacking is cool (see the alpha dragon video that she made, she commented in it through out the video that she found it enjoyable), and has been seen in multiple videos using differently colored toothless that weren't meant to be in game. In short, she vandalized the Dev's work and didn't give it much thought.
I can also certainly say that she's not all that respectful either. Need proof? After someone proceeded to call her out for backwards racing she then went and insulted them, calling them a 'goody two-shoes' and said that she saw exploiting glitches as an 'oppurtunity' when in fact it was clearly not meant for the game. Below is your evidence. You're welcome.
You're wrong bcs
She made the video so that the admins wake up. Thats it. Not to be
mean or something like that.
I personally expect more from her than making a video to "wake up the admins", since I still can't forgive her for what she's done. At least not yet.
