It's just amaxing, how long do net comics live anyway? I've always though they don't survive for long, 10 years sounds ancient. Heh, DT is an honored elder now, a Val among commoners, destined for more challenges and ever growing prestige. Most drow would find this very proper. Cheers Drowtales! *boogie* *boogie* *boogie*

THE CAEK IS A LIE!!! (fellow Tei'Kaliaths only will get the inside joke there)

But yeah, looked through the various styles... I'll stick with teh PtP forum style... the newest one is too narrow on my screen...

Happy Anniversary Drowtales! Woo!

Additionally, I'd like it better though if the Chat forum could be put back on.

Feels like ages ago when it went down.

This. We all love talking about DT, but we also could really use a place to engage with our fellow members more directly to get to know each other better.

I heard the original Chat forum was lost because Kern and the administration got angry with the way some of the people there were behaving. Is it really fair to punish all the newcomers with the lack of a Chat forum, for something a bunch of now-banned people did? ^^;

Not really.

I was there. It began - and Kern could possibly confirm this if you asked - with a misunderstanding. The way I see it at least.

One of the high-lvl posters on the Chat forum was absent for quite a considerably long time and a thread was made in the belief that he had been banned. I'm not going to say names for fairness.

Kern came along and made a thread saying that the guy hadn't been banned and was so mad with those who made the first thread that he decided to dismantle the Chat forum on a specific date. We were given eloquent time to say our things about this and then we left. In fact, everybody who was a high-lvl poster pretty much abandoned DT because they felt betrayed. Okay, we started it and we were stupid, but most of us felt really that Kern had gone overboard with this punishment. He and Kite said though that the Chat forum was getting out of hand and they couldn't maintain it any further.

This happened in 2006. Five years ago and that's probably a long time enough for things to cool down. I haven't heard so much as a beep from the others since I left the other forum which was the goal for the "Exodus".

I wasn't glad about the Chat forum getting locked down myself when it happened, but at the least I kept my mouth shut apart from some of the others. Call me self-centred for that if you wish, but it's the truth.

I don't think that it's justice that a whole group of newcomers here should not be allowed a Chat forum for something that happened way before their time here. *upset*

If the admin is reading this, please hear me out; We were stupid in the first place and you didn't do your side much justice either. On behalf of those who were there, White_wolf, grfu, Kembaru, Raven, that bloke whose avvie I saw as something black and white and my own brother Nyrath, I apologize for the high-lvls' misunderstanding.

Please give back the Chat.

A quick question: I used to have a Tektek as an Avatar, but now it says that it can't be displayed because "its type has been disallowed". Why (besides its default size a bit too big)? Also, I've looked for an option for resizing it, but I couldn't find one.

For the moment, apparently the forum will only let you use files you upload from your computer as avatars.

Tektek files are really small, so you should be fine for the 48kb limit. Just save the picture to your Pictures folder, maybe resize it in MSPaint if you have to, and then upload it from there.
