Annoying thing about this smiley, I still couldn't make transparency work so tried to match it to the forum background colour - only problem is the colour alternates between posts so it's only right half the time!

IIRC, Meball was the first suggestion made, you then suggested Cuegan and that caught on pretty quick, but then I suggested Megball, which I thought was better than both of those, and I stand by that to this day and still use Megball myself even if barely anyone else does!
ergman wrote:[group self indulgence] you know another awesome thing about this thread? There is a huge variety of age groups, varying from high school students to newlyweds to grandparents. It lends itself to a large range of perspectives and things we reference. (I think I have a bob Dylan number of 3, if you relax the qualifications a little) [\group self indulgence]
I was going to note the exact same thing, but with a slightly different conclusion: I think the OTT is surprisingly homogenous considering the huge age range. You might expect age groups to stick together (the ‘kids’ hanging out and responding to each other while the ‘oldies’ do something else) but that's far from the case (for the most part).
I think that's just because we're on an internet forum and nobody actually KNOWS anyone's age unless they've explicitly stated it, so it's not really an issue. But even so, it is pretty cool how we have such a huge age range here.
"Ered Levain""Lavan" being an Elvish (Sindarin) word for an animal, usually specifically quadrupeds and not reptiles or birds (raptors). So basically, the Elvish word for Molpy. (Pluralised of course, in the weird Sindarin way of changing the vowels accordingly)
Onward to the mountains! At last, they'll be turning terra incognita into map data
The poll for the mountains name is still open, I've had Sierra Molpies
for now. It's good, but there may be other ideas?
(also, parent oder
adult guardian? Bit of German slipping through there?
