  1. Love this! ❤️ Beautiful avi; but also interesting and mysterious backdrop: some scifi lab or something. Makes you think.
  2. So much fun! Until Jennie pulled that big knife. Then the party was over.
  3. While we're on the subject of reflections, here's "Lofty Thoughts"
  4. "X-Rated" EDIT: Fixed the weirdly rolled eyes. Long live @Eva Knoller and her Lelutka HUD tip!
  5. Since ppl confused my Chloe for Max (what with her non-blue, short hair and all), here is the real Max, still at her photography hobby: "Still At It"
  6. Thank you for this new thread, Sara! And for the clear guidelines/rules governing this thread: it creates clarity.
  7. Let me explain this to you. At first, like many others, I thought she was just trolling or something. After all, these things happen on a forum. She made an empty post, then quoted her own empty post, etc. Then it was @LittleMe Jewell who first alerted me to the possibility we, aka me, might be judging her too fast, and I backed off. And she was more right than I imagined even. Here's what BeautifulXu said about herself, a bit later: her own words That should say it all. At least to me, it was a stark reminder there's almost always more than meets the eye. Beth recently said something about ppl maybe having brain damage (not related to BeautifulXu, btw), and that we rarely, if ever, know their true situation from the way they're posting. Reading BeautifulXu's own words, at least she says she was in the hospital, and she seems to have experienced memory loss, near as I can tell. It doesn't matter, I don't need to know. What I do know, is that she, thru her many posts here, expressed a persistent desire to be part of this community. And, as far as I'm concerned, she is very welcome here, in whatever capacity she is fit. Period.
  8. Zactly. You don't get to play the 'Boo-hoo, I was just timidly voicing my opinion, and now ppl are mean to me!' card, when you are yourself the bully. Doesn't work like that, Laika. Nor does "I was just saying what I know other people think." Other ppl can speak for themselves just fine, thank you. Own your own words. Other than making a few light-hearted comments, BeautifulXu has done nothing wrong. You don't like what she writes? Scroll is your friend.
  9. I wasn't talking about you, Fairre. I was referring to Orwar's comment to me, to be precise. And I like your recent participation in this thread, and your works.
  10. And, likewise, I think people should be able to voice a frustration about others constantly judging other posters in this thread. Personally, I'm sick and tired of this small clique, constantly seeking the opportunity to judge other ppl. Take this, for instance, posted by Laika: "I am polite I asked you nicely to stop commenting stupid stuff so did other people." 'Stupid stuff?!' That's where we're at now?! That is neither polite, nor supportive. It's just outright mean. And I'm sorry, we can't all be Scylla, and write beautiful prose. People just give what they have.
  11. It's actualy ppl like you who constantly make ppl feel unwelcome (like me). ''Respect for the people around them." includes swallowing your own narrow views on how you would like the flow of this thread to go, instead of passive-aggressively attacking ppl for doing things differently, at every turn you get. With that said, I'm going to ask @Kristen Linden for an official ruling. Because I'm tired of the BS.
  12. The same could be asked of you, of course. There are those, like yours truly, who love to comment on a photo. For support, really, and encouragement, but mainly because I love expressing what I like about it. I don't do negative comments. And the ppl I have left a comment for, I haven't had complaints yet. See, I think there's a huge difference between derailing what is essentially a photo thread, with politics, or otherwise totally off-topic stuff, and commenting on a photo -- the latter of which is totally on-topic. And, lest there was unclarity, the topic starter never stated a 'Photos only' policy. Obviously, the idea was to show how one's avatar looks; but there's no law says ppl can't be commenting on those pictures. And with 'commenting' I mean including quoting the picture as well. For instance, I could just say 'Nice picture, Laika!' But, whilst you yourself may then have a vague inkling as to which one I am referring to, most ppl won't. In fact, a cogent case could be made, arguing a single 'Nice picture, Laika!', with no context (aka picture), is far more spammy than just including the photo. And getting shoo-ed off to Flickr, sorry, but yeah, that doesn't work for me.
