Recently started running a Ventrilo Server and I'm looking for quality people to join the sekrit klub. I came here because I figured we could get some people with good taste. Weekdays, I'm usually offline until 7-8PM PST, but I've got a few other regulars coming in from other locations. We'd love anyone that is interested in having some good conversations.

>Put them somewhere and enjoy their beauty
>Put them on clothing/a bag or something
>If someone asks, give them a history lesson on the symbolism of some of the pins

>Russia: the shooting comet resembles a missile warhead that would ultimately become the conflict between America and Russia post WWII.
>Japan: the eclipse is a symbol of a longing for peace and harmony/ concept of blocking out the sub with their force.
>America: pretty much just the USA personified by the star; it's probably safe to say it's Texan
>Finland: I believe this one is actually supposed to be a nuclear reactor. Finland's nuclear reactors provide ~30% of their total power. Could very well be wrong though.
Great Britain: the blue and white being flipped in the show might be symbolic, but I'm not sure.
Germany, Italy, France: they just look nice.

Where did you get those symbolism meanings? Made them up yourself?

They can easily be derived from reality, but the Fuso one isn't just made up. The Fuso warflag is symbolic since the original warflag of Japan was the red sun with the beams. If you do a little research it was kind of like a symbol of "we're gonna spread our war all over you." The eclipse is supposed to be a symbol of attempting to bring peace.

Are the names of the other wars this unimaginative?

You may have a point, but I still think there would be a need to identify if the war was fought against the neuroi or among human nations
Besides, "tacking a "Neuroi" somewhere in the name of the war" is what the official setting has been doing so far, and for a good reason
The names serves as a reference to real world event
Changing them to something made up just makes them confusing
And again, how is a name of a war supposed to be imaginative
It only needs to identify

"Besides, tacking a "Neuroi" somewhere in the name of the war is what the official setting has been doing so far"

Well, shit, I'm a retard for not knowing this. I had thought it was still "First World War," "Second World War," etc.

Okay, no more issues from me. I feel stupid now.

First of all, I would once again like to thank our admin team and the users for their continued dedication to this site, despite the general slowness and my somewhat ..lacking.. presence.

I wish I was more active in the community, in irc and what-not, but I'm just a very reserved person and can't really bring myself to do it. But despite this, know that I'll always be around if I'm needed.

Anyhow, enough of that.

It has been a whole year since the founding of this site! This is an exciting time, for even though the website has had its hurdles and the posting remains generally slow, it has still managed to stay alive. Hopefully with the eventual DVD release of the movie and lots of new content to discuss, things will speed up again.

As for the future of the website, I will continue to pay for it unless interest completely dies out (0 posts for months), which hopefully won't be for several years.

When it comes to various improvements and overhauls of the site, I'm kind of ashamed of myself for not putting more work into it. I still have a list of features and what-not that I want to add, but a lack of real skill and various "IRL" problems have cut down my motivation a bit.

The things that are still planned:
Actual front page.
New forum software. (Although I've grown fond of this one)
Miscellaneous features and improvements.

There is also the possibility of oekaki being merged with /sw/ in order to speed things up a bit. If things get REALLY bad, off topic may be merged as well as a last ditch emergency move. But I wouldn't worry about that right now.

In closing, Happy Birthday Helma.us! And may the next year be even brighter!

Here I am actually cheering for the board with just a light joke and you come here ranting about fanwank. I guess you're just being too uptight and can't take a joke either.
