Hmm. It seems to have been a while since anyone last posted hereabouts... How's all the Ora-types? With VH being downish, I haven't seen anyone out and about -- très sad. Then again, I'm not sure what I'm complaining about, as I don't even take the time to clean the cobwebs off my own journal... Eh.

This might not interest many of you as it is quite old, but I wrote a retrospecticus on the "first Ravenclaw couch" (post-Castlina) on May 25th in 2002.

It might or might not be a good idea for anyone who has any important (or nostalgic, or ... whatever) Ravenclaw/Oracle/VH events/happenings/memories/blizz to post them here. This is certainly an easy forum in which to organise memories (both with the memory and tag features).

I have an Oracle-ish picture that i thought I probably should share for the fiction archive page. I'm not particularly proud of it, so if everyone thinks it's crud and wants to not use it, that's fine with me. Additionally, this is a lower quality picture, and on the off chance that it is used, I have a better quality version.
Cut for large-ish pictureCollapse )

((Kyr here)) I feel so out of the loop! I'm always the last to find out about these kinds of things. Ah well. I'm here now, and that's all that matters, right? *crickets chirp* Yeah, that's sort of what I thought. Ah well *L*

Well, toesockwit IM'd me with an idea for the fiction archieve earlier, which is rather a good one, hopefully I'll be able to pull it off...eeep!!!


Anyway, her idea was to try and enter a song about Oracle into the archieve! So it would be a filk with a bit extra, because we'd actually have a version of it that people can hear and not just read!

So you can see why I'm worried about being able to pull it off.

Anyway, we need your help. Do you have an idea of a particular song that you would like to see as the Oracle song, do you have any type of lyrics that you would like to see in the Oracle song?

Just post it here and we'll see what we can come up with. ( :

As far as I know, toesockwit and I are the only Oracles working on a possible page for our archive at the spiffy new VH fanfic page. Granted, Chas is still working on her drawing, and I haven't begun the HTML yet (because I have a feeling the page is going to be mostly revolving around the picture), but we still have time.

We all have time. Submissions will be accepted until July 31st (read more at the official competition thread if you haven't yet. Which you should have. Because you always participate in contests in the name of your honorable house. And you always win the House Cup. *Please*, guys ;).

Right now our house's archive page is pretty plain and boring. It's very basic and includes the links our final version will have to have (there's also a disclaimer that HAS to be in there somewhere). But guess what? IT COULD BE WORSE: "late houses may end up with a plain white page and Times New Roman Text!" (Consider us threatened by Mischamyn ;)

So... Who's seriously thinking about doing something? :)

I was just looking at the Oracle community (of which the last three posts were ciceronianus). It's a bit of a sad place, we seem to forget about it.

Annnnyway. Is anyone competent enough in HTML/coding/whatever magic something like this requires, to create the front page of the VH Fiction Archive (http://vh.7dragons.net/index.php?board=63;action=display;threadid=3720)? (Man, I could not find that board for the life of me...)

I certainly am not, but I can marginally do images or help emotionally in some way. So someone out there needs to step up and do it.

~and I think we're on a time limit, just to make myself more obnoxious.
~~Right, now I'm leaving.

Owing to the utter stupidity utter stupidity of an associate everything that once lived on the computer from which I type is lost to the ages ie. if I hadn't already re-uploaded your icon, erm, it's lost forever.

So ... bler, really. I'm sorry about that, if you have your own copy of an avatar or what-have-you I shall be only too happy to continue hosting it - I just don't have a copy of it anymore.

Signed,
Annoyed.

I was going to see how long it'd take for me to flit about the board finding all the spaces where images I host are, but frankly, the answer was "forever" before I'd even started.

So, if anyone has an image (most likely an avatar of some description, I'll bet) hosted by me could you please post here or send me a hedgehog (to Minion) with the relevant details ie. bibble.gif, noodle.jpg etc.

Thank you :)


Oh, and does anyone need/want a gmail account still?

I love this community - we're such a chatty group ;)

Anyway, I had time and ... hm.

A few of them you would have seen around before because I made those ones eons ago, but only recently have I got in contact with my productivity, and, though there are still issues between us, we were able to work together on this project ;)

The artwork is completely not mine - but hey, I, erm ... put the words on? ;)

Also, don't feel like you have to use the images to save my feelings from being hurt - it's been long enough now, and I'm sure everyone is well aware that I am, indeed, a robot.

Oh, also: I didn't make an image for everyone in this community because ... I don't know what you look like. So, if you would like an avatar of a similar nature (and assuming that any of the people who aren't on the page even follow this community anymore ;)) please let me know and I'll give it a whirl (yes, even you, Python lurker ;)).

Right. Now, off to medicine land with me.

Instead of participating in the other Oracle things we had going on (or didn't) I worked on this silly little thing and I thought you all might like to see it. Hopefully it still works and you all enjoy it. Happy Spirit Week :~). Emily and Shannon helped me out on the Oracle Cklaims part...actually all credit can go to them for that :~) thanks girls!

Hullo Oracles!

I've managed to get myself a journal here, on the advice of a few of you. So here I am. :)

Frankly, that this poll appears at all (if it even does!) is somewhat of a miracle. Trust a poll about jamunoteno's birthday to make life extremely difficult ;)

Poll #236138 Jex=Amidala

What shall we give Jex for his birthday?

The world.
1(8.3%)
People to ban.
2(16.7%)
A really pointy stick.
1(8.3%)
Our souls.

Is everyone sick of the idea of a practical Oracle Guide? Well, i'm dredging it up again because it's late and I'm blocking my sister from using the computer.

More than a technical FAQ, we should have some sort of basic suggestions on where to visit first (Introduction thread), what some of the more confusing threads are about, and why starting a thread saying "I'm bored will someone talk to me?" is a bad idea. And where to turn for help and stuff like that, unless it's already covered in the FAQ.

These are all just suggestions, but I think that if we do make this thread, then we may help people become more acclimated with the common room.

Erm, so that's it. Any thoughts?
