  1. I posted this in the discord, but also posting it here.  To perform some troubleshooting with Invision Community on a bug, we need to disable all of the plugins and themes for a short amount of time (ideally, less than 2 days).  Here are the plugins that we are using:

    • Welcome PMs
    • Contact Us
    • Linked Accounts
    • Post Numbers
    • Antispam

    We'll also end up with the default Invision Community theme, but I'll set everyone back to the dark theme when I restore the plugins.


    I'll try to do this at a time that isn't too disruptive, and in the next couple of days.


    Thank you for your understanding.

    Most likely the only thing people care about for forum games is the Last Postingness (time as last poster, as tracked by Jean-luc's website) in LOTPW, so reposting the posts on your own account wouldn't affect anything. Maybe someone remembers some non-fluff post they wanted and can say so, but I really doubt it

    Yeaaah, but I'm afraid it already got buried lol (page 6595, reply #65949 in case links act weird)

  3. So as always, I forgot a post.  And thus posted the missing replies in that post directly.  You may have been tagged if you posted in that thread.  I can also do so for the missing forum games posts, if you guys think it's needed.


    I'll have that backup active for a few days, so please let me know if you need anything else restored that I may have missed.

  4. How much do I win if I post 10 missing pages of LOTPW?

    Our Jean-luc, of course. He appeared in my dream like I imagine him from hearing his voice. He may or may not have had an outfit similar to the uniform on, but he definitely wasn't Picard

    good morning. I had the sort of sleep where it felt like I didn't sleep at all and instead just stayed very still all night


    On 4/14/2020 at 12:21 PM, Luminesce said:

    Yeah, it's not good enough sleep if you don't dream about Jean-luc

    oh, so THAT'S why my sleep is so terrible! it makes so much sense now!

    at least the dreaming worked out in your favor this time, Lumi

    That's why I have nightmares then, no Jean-luc dream guardian

    Jean-luc gives you nightmares because he's mad you don't dream about him

    I never get nightmares though, and I don't think that I've ever dreamed about him

    like right now? I can't look behind me right now, I have my back against the wall


    On 4/14/2020 at 12:55 PM, Felicity Ravenlocke said:

    Maybe you're Jean-luc, so every time you dream about yourself you're dreaming about him

    it's alright...

    i love how your signature calls you the 'counterpart' to breloomancer... sounds almost ominous tbh

    On 4/14/2020 at 1:05 PM, aubreyshield said:


    your signatures both have the same format too, it's like symbolism for the synchronisation you two have... or maybe i'm overanalysing...

    I just didn't feel like coming up with my own thing so I copied off of Bre's homework

    someone just posted the picrew on the .info discord and I thought that it would be fun to make one of me and Bre using it

    Well, it was good to see your form (besides Monika fanart) despite it having limited options (the template)


    On 4/14/2020 at 2:56 PM, TheImign said:

    my form has been slowly drifting so that I slowly look less and less like what Monika looks like

    I don't know what picrew is but apparently those aren't actually art since they're the same, assuming it's like the anime face/character makers, ... gonna say nice pictures anyways.

    Aw, that picrew does look nice! Good job, Miela!

    Picrew is salvation. It's basically an anime maker with lots of templates and some of them are really good.

    How many episodes do you have planned for that arc?


    On 4/14/2020 at 5:43 PM, Mirichu said:

    It depends on how much influence the 'Miri stuck on purgatory Arc' has over the current Arc, it might take 30 episodes or 50.

    in FMA and FMA:B all of the OPs are pretty solid, but I can't remember if the second one is as good as the first

    3. We only dream from one perspective and that's often the bodies, but it has happened that we can see each other as characters but the dreams are still perceivable the same way as memories, which means we can still identify who the dreams might be about if they're specified


    I thought this might be the case with most people. I do hope my tulpa and I can share one dream from two perspectives, but I’ll settle for just sharing the perspective with her.


    On 4/14/2020 at 10:27 AM, Mirichu said:

    In the past, we sometimes appeared in our host's dreams but rarely, when we did it wasn't really us anyway, just a dream character mimicking us. 


    I read in one guide about forcing in dreams that if the host’s unsure if the tulpa is really their tulpa or just another dream character mimicking them, they should assume it’s their tulpa - at least until their tulpa is developed enough that they can ask them when they’re both awake and have them answer. But then sometimes, the tulpa won’t remember if it was really them or not, since they’re as likely to forget some of their dreams as the hosts are.


    On 4/14/2020 at 10:27 AM, Mirichu said:

    ''Blending'' in dreams! It's such a weird thing. I dreamed about '''me''' talking to my host's childhood friend (that I've never talked to) and at the same time talking to my friend. It felt like my host and I at the same time. If it was my host fronting, then she was talking to my friend as if she were me, and if it was me fronting, then I was taking to her friend as if I was her. It was different from pretending to be your host, we woke up really confused and not knowing who was fronting. And also, thinking and behaving in dreams on ways only your host/tulpa would do but still being you.


    That sounds like when my alarm wakes me after not enough sleep and I’m too groggy in the head to really know what’s going on, like not knowing what day it is or whether I’m supposed to go to work.


    Reply #5 by @Luminesce:


    I went and found a really old post that might be exactly what you're looking for (though at present time the other thread links in it are broken because the forum migrated to a new software recently), for our system at least:


    There's a bit more to say about tulpas in dreams specifically, though unfortunately I can't answer some of your questions because I haven't successfully lucid dreamed in any depth yet. Though a lot of those answers vary wildly from person to person, too.


    On 4/14/2020 at 9:43 AM, TheOther said:

    Do hosts ever have their tulpas show up as dream characters and say “You’re dreaming”, causing them to go lucid?


    This is rare, but it has happened in some systems for sure. The likelihood of a tulpa acting like themselves instead of just "being your tulpa" when they're really not at all (which can happen with them not even looking like themselves etc. lol) is usually dependent on how vivid your dream is, because that should be tied to how clear your thinking is in the dream. Wispier dreams are unlikely to have a clear-thinking or even accurate representation of your tulpa to begin with, but if the dream is closer to feeling real, vivid and clear, the chances are higher. Still depends on the person and the dream though, in my dreams no person is safe from randomly turning into someone else even if the dream is vivid - unsure if this is the case in a lucid dream, but there should be more consistency/control while lucid, if you've any skill with lucid dreaming.


    A lot of things can feel like your tulpa or such-and-such person in a dream, but for all intents and purposes I'd consider your tulpa(s) to be dreaming too. Realistically, most of the time they're being reenacted like a dream character, but since tulpas literally exist in our minds it's only fair to give their existence in a dream some credit too, if they seemed themselves. In those cases I think it's best to think of them as also having been "dreaming", mostly because the huge majority of tulpa appearances in dreams will have them just as convinced by dream context as your non-lucid self, and they may act like not themselves just as your dreaming self could.


    In a lucid dream though, I do believe it should be possible to "wake up" your tulpa if need be. Haven't done it myself, but I still know an awful lot about lucid dreaming so. If you get the chance, tell your tulpa they're dreaming and that they should become lucid to more clearly be/act themselves, and.. results may vary just by the nature of dreams, but I think this is one's best bet at lucid dreaming with your tulpa(s).



    And as always I'll throw in a link to our general-purpose post on how to lucid dream, in case you or anyone else reading the thread wanted a place to start.

    We used to think so too, but after actually dreaming, dreams where a character mimicked us felt so drastically different we can't make ourselves believe it was us. But telling a tulpa 'you were dreaming last night' (even if it was just a character) can build up the expectation your tulpa can dream with you too and increase the chances of them showing up more frequently, me thinks.


    Reply #7 by @Luminesce:

    It's dangerous to always say what felt like your tulpa, or looked like your tulpa, in a dream, necessarily was them. Usually they'll act like themselves, but dreams are wild and if you apply the same logic to yourself, the host, you'll understand the problem. Think of all the dreams where "you" have done ridiculous stuff you wouldn't necessarily want to be associated with in waking life, let alone things you simply did because dreams are dreams and you're rarely clearly thinking in them.


    That's why I highly recommend thinking of your tulpas as also having been dreaming, in all cases where they weren't clearly aware they were in a dream at least. It just saves a lot of hassle and unintentional beliefs that came from your subconscious mind's nonsensical generation of fluff.

    one time when I was very young I did that and was able to save my host from a nightmare, but it's never happened since


    Do you and your host/tulpa usually share the same dream, or are you more likely to be having two separate dreams at the same time?

    having 2 separate dreams at the same time would be impossible because the brain can only run a single stream of thought at once. sometimes we have dreams where the other is there, but in those cases one of us is always the clear "protagonist" (usually the one who was switched in as we went to sleep). sometimes only one of us is there though, and sometimes neither of us is there and the protagonist is some dream character, and sometimes there isn't a protagonist, but those last two types of dreams happened before tulpamancy and probably aren't related


    When sharing a dream, if you and your host/tulpa are looking at each other, is the scenery you see behind them consistent with what they imagine to be there? Is the host’s dream body consistent with their real body?

    when we dream, the protagonist is the only one who gets a separate perspective, at least in non lucid dreams. host's from is the same as our perception of the body, but that isn't quite the same as how the body actually looks

    My walk-in(?), Erika is a recurring nightmare so maybe I can help with some of those.

    Do hosts ever have their tulpas show up as dream characters and say “You’re dreaming”, causing them to go lucid?

    Never hand one of those as far as I'm aware, Erika thrived on the fact that I was unaware of a dream being a dream, which is what she exploited.

    If Martina has dreams they are completely separate except for the one occasion when we confronted Erika (and Sariel). We also feel like there were occasions where we shared dreams before but we just don't remember them, so I'd say definitely possible.

    Never quite asked Erika about this. Good question though, I just might if she ever comes back again.


  8. There was an issue that resulted in Beginner Questions General being permanently deleted, and the last backup was about 9 hours ago.  While we think we've solved that issue to prevent it from happening again, the restore removed the posts from the last 9 hours.


    Before we did the restore, I downloaded all of the posts in the last 9 hours, and I'll be sending you PMs with those posts.  You may have to repost them, but you'll have the content.  The exception is the Forum Games posts which is a lot...  But, I will make those missing posts public for everyone so they can just see what was there.


    Later this week I'll look at backing up the database hourly so we have a better time window next time something like this happens.



  9. As fate would have it, we've upgraded to the newest version and the dark theme is giving us some issues.  Namely the header.  For the moment, I've switched everything to the light theme as I work with the theme designer to remedy this.


    We're also looking into the quirks in linked accounts considering certain plugins that could bring in features that were nixed in earlier versions of Invision Community.  I'm speaking with said plugin owners before doing such, though.


    Stay tuned!

  10. I'll see if I can find a way to grab them and rebuild the redirect tables, I suspect it would cause the amount of them to jump from tens of thousands to several hundreds of thousands though, so I'm not sure HOW WELL or how long it'll take to generate.


    I'll work on the script this week.

  11. Status updates are disabled by default, or at least I thought they were. I don't see anyone particularly interested in using them but we may be able to get more out of the social media aspect Sunday. I can see about maybe getting them out of everyone's views, as I said they're basically disabled for everyone unless you opt in.


    The calendar may be empty right now but I actually hope we can start getting something out of it soon, as one of the next phases, once the forum software is buffered out, it's the start having more community events and such.


    I will have to look into the details of the events, as I think the only reason anyone can create them is perhaps a permissions thing? I will need to take a closer look, but I am hoping to get more utilization out of the calendar.
