Mostly just testing it out, may just go to an attachment system instead, as this gallery is a "free/lite" version of the thing, not sure I like how it works.

Sorry for the double post, but since it's been a couple days since my last post here I figured it might be better to just make a new one for this suggestion concerning the gallery.

I noticed that there's a "return to gallery" link, and I think that's awesome, but I'd like to suggest a second link which takes you back to the main page of the subgallery you're in so you don't have to wade through all the galleries and pics if you just wanted to look at the next pic in the subgallery. 

Maybe have the two links say something like "Return to Gallery Directory" and "Return to [Insert Subgallery Name Here]."  I think this kind of thing would increase the ease with which viewers could navigate the gallery feature.

Thank you so much, by the way, for implimenting the gallery in the first place.   
Support and Advice / Concern About Negative and Positive Past Life Memories
« Last post by NoddyTheDragon on April 19, 2017, 11:25:25 pm »
I suppose some folks would call me lucky to have a lot of memories from multiple past lives, but in all honesty I'm not so sure that the memories I have are a blessing or a curse.  The problem is that my negative memories are exquisitely detailed.  I can tell you what someone was wearing right down to the metal of their belt buckle in the negative memories.  But positive memories are more... emotional.  There's no real detail involved.  I know what happened but not much else.  This has me wondering why this is, and so I thought I'd bring this up here, since this is the Support and Advice forum and I am seeking advice here, or more specifically, I'm looking for answers.

I guess the main thing I need answered is whether or not this disparity in detail is normal.  Why can I remember every tiny detail in an extremely negative memory, but I find almost no details in positive ones?  It's bothered me for quite a few years now.  I've also noticed that my positive memories are only a recent development.  I originally Awakened in early 2009, and I think it was just within the last year or so that the first positive memory appeared to me.  I know these detail-less positive memories are memories, because they keep enduring in my mind and my soul won't let go of them.  It's this same endurance that helped me realize that my name is actually my real soul name and not just wishful thinking, and it's also this same endurance that has kept the negative memories firmly established as fact for me as well. 

Now, I was very badly abused as a child, and I was conditioned from an early age to only focus on the bad things in life.  I am aware that such constant negativity can have an adverse effect on my life, and if that is what's going on here (or if there's more to it than just that), I want to know about it so I can deal with it.  And if you don't know outright, do you know of a way I can find out?

Thanks in advance.

So, I went and added a gallery mod to the forum, so people should be able to add pictures and such.  Keep it PG-13, for now all pictures will have to be approved, but feel free to poke around with it and see how it works out.

You can find the Gallery link at the top menu.

I second this.  It'd be a wonderful idea.  Maybe put a size limit for each image so it doesn't overwhelm the site.
Dreams and experiences / Dragon sightings
« Last post by NoddyTheDragon on April 18, 2017, 11:50:41 pm »
Crazy stuff, I know, but I figured since this forum was empty and I've had some weird experiences myself, I might as well start a thread here, so here it is.

Have you ever seen a dragon or dragon-like being?  Doesn't have to be physical in nature obviously, but if you've seen one physically I wouldn't mind reading about it.  But it can also be sightings of like apparitions, maybe visions you've had during meditation or something along those lines.  Basically anything where you saw a dragon or something similar to a dragon (and just so you know, I'm including wyverns in this, since I hold to the very old idea that wyverns are a type of dragon... please don't hate me for saying as much).

So I'll start off by telling you all one of my experiences.  In August of 2010, I moved into a really slummy 2-bedroom apartment in Apache Junction, Arizona.  On my first night there, an apparition appeared at the door to the hallway at the foot of my bed.  I wasn't scared of it or anything, but simply curious and I felt actually rather safe.  When I looked closely at it, I noticed it was a he and he was a Draco, a similar species to my own.  I had a terrible bed, it was found by a friend in a garbage bin.  I didn't have any proper sheets or blankets, and I slept like a baby that night with that beautiful male Draco guarding the door to my room. 

I've had other experiences as well, but I'd like to read about some of your experiences.  Be sure to comment below.

I'll be sure to take a look at that.  Thank you.

Now to just figure out how these things work...

for those draggies and otherkin that use Discord/Skype

amalgamation of servers to generate further traffic:

The moderators have changed after the main servers went down...the days of 10-30 channels and draconic being populated and waned to about 1 and a half channels with people trying to salvage the community to a bearing where everyone's accepted.  Do I recommend going back to Draconic? The forum activity has been recent as of late, but as for the pains me to see it in the state it is.  The difference is that Dragon Realms was created from that fomer oppression and the didn't have enough time to collect metadata and input (that's basically what DR 2.0 is). 

They want to learn from their mistakes since they're trying to re-capture the data from the old archives and use the new forums to make this place more spiritual and more of a sanctuary.
I'm not a big fan of the whole "science" thing either.  I find it to be too religious in nature, more along the lines of "scientism" than an actual proper usage of science. 

Also, as far as fictionkin and that type of thing goes, I think that if I believe I'm a dragon, I've got no business saying that someone who thinks they're a Na'vi is wrong or stupid or any of that stuff.  As far as the rest of the world is concerned, dragons and Na'vi are both works of fiction, so it doesn't do a Dragonkin any bit of good whatsoever to get on a fictionkin's case for their weird beliefs.

And finally, I agree that a lot of people are real power-hungry.  I got permabanned from Draconic because, according to KaniS, I was a "danger to the community."  My crime: I had proved his favorite moderator wrong in a forum debate, and later called her out for her bullying of a younger member who was complaining of abuse at home.  I'm sorry, but I'm not going to stand idly by while a moderator uses their position of power as a blunt force weapon to silence people they don't like.  And if that means a permaban for me, then I guess that's what it means.  Doesn't mean I have to like it, though.
