  1. Sounds like a great idea.
  2. Hi Lumi. I'm afraid the giraffesona has been officially retired. I was just going through the new black metal releases and saw that one, and it naturally made me think of you folks.
  3. Who's the trve kvlt black metal-er with the malevolent tulpa?
  4. I am resigning and will be taking my leave of this community shortly. It's been fun. Take care, everyone.
  5. What were the usernames you were trying to create accounts for?

    A record still only sounds as good as the speakers/headphones you listen to it with. There's a lot to be said about record player/setup too, when it comes to reducing noise and such. Personally, when I buy vinyl, it is for the artwork, and or because I feel the particular album is well suited to vinyl. Plus, I'm the kind of person that really appreciates having the physical form of things, so if it's an album I love (and especially if it's nice to look at), it's nice to have the vinyl as well as the CD. I have a few records framed on my walls. The artwork can make for great display. Also, I almost never like colored vinyl. I find it kind of tacky. I think plain ol' black looks the best. I only own one colored record, and I didn't know it would be colored when I bought it. It was ~$10 on Amazon, so I went for it, and it turned out to be white. Oh well.
  7. Our email sending is borked at the moment, so you don't receive the confirmation email when you attempt to change email addresses. Considering this, using a different email won't do you any good right now, because you're not going to be receiving any emails from us, but PM'ing anyway.
  8. This thread is essentially "Make long posts, replacing periods with commas". Grammatical correctness went out the window by the end of the first page. The last several posts are rife with comma splices. Also, semicolons are kind of cheating, too (and not strictly correct).
  9. The fundamentals of this guide are based on things which I feel are much too abstract. You are instructed to let go of the balloon and let it fly upwards to where your tulpa is located in your brain. This is quite a counter-intuitive concept here, suggesting that your tulpa does in fact reside in a specific, physical area of your brain. It doesn't, and unless you've already come to associate a particular area of your head with your tulpa, this part of the symbolism won't be very significant to you. What's more, if the balloon traveling upwards to a specific area in your head where your tulpa is is important, then you would also have to have associated a specific part of your brain with you/your wonderland or something, right? Otherwise, it would be going up towards your tulpa, from a non-specific location. If you're going for symbolism based on symbolic, physical travel throughout your brain, you're missing half of that equation, if you don't have a firm association with where you are starting. Moreover, does that mean your tulpa has to be located somewhere in your brain higher up than where you are located? Otherwise the balloon would be going in the wrong direction. I'm being pedantic here to show that the symbolism that this guide is based on does not appear to be particularly well thought out, and that a person following this guide would probably have to have pretty specific associations to these concepts (that are in-line with your own) for it to be useful to them. You could expand the guide to explain the general concept you're going for—really explain what you're trying to achieve with the symbolism—and perhaps detail multiple different ways that the reader can incorporate your method into their own symbolic associations. A paper airplane could be used instead of a balloon, so that it doesn't have to travel upwards. Something could be thrown over a wall, if the reader has chosen to imagine a wall as a symbolic representation of their disconnectedness from their tulpa. Maybe it would be just as helpful to someone for them to merely imagine giving their tulpa a note or something, containing the idea. Maybe even just hand them the balloon. If you are both present in your wonderland for this, it wouldn't require having associated you/your tulpa with specific locations in your brain, which a lot of people (dare I say most) have not. Those were just a few random examples off the top of my head. The idea is that you should be explaining it in such a way that the reader can choose their own symbolism that works for them, and hopefully giving them a few different examples to help solidify the concept, or spark their creativity. In my opinion, the best guides that involve symbolism are ones which take an idea—in this case, representing the transmission of a thought through a physical medium, through space—explain what the underlying concept is to the idea, and in essence, help the reader to build their own symbolic method. This way, you do not presuppose the reader's own symbolic associations and constructs; you are merely proposing an idea that they can use with their own "tools", so to speak. If the guide is based too heavily on a single symbolic idea, it will be helpful to only a small subset of readers, whose ideas of symbolism match your own. Symbolism is a very subjective thing, and it is only helpful if the symbolism being used is something that resonates with the user.
  10. Maybe it's just a crappy bot that didn't fill out the sections properly. I considered that it intended to put its spam in its signature, but it was not yet visible, because they didn't have 5 posts; however, I would think I would be able to see it in the admin CP, even if it hadn't been "activated" yet, but there was nothing. So I guess my bet is on crappy bot.
  11. Yes, please. Lots of previous questions about switching can be found using the search function. There are also a couple of switching guides in the list, here. Locked.
  12. Before making new threads, please be sure to go through the FAQ, and read through some of our guides; we have a section of guides specifically for the wonderland, and the subject is touched on in many of the general creation guides as well. You can also use the search function to see if questions like yours have been asked before. Here's another thread with the exact same topic here. There are a whole lot of threads on the topic of wonderlands. Nearly any question you may have can be answered by going through these various resources. Please try to be sure that your exact question has not been asked before, before making a new thread. Locked.
  13. Moved to Q&A. Luminesce pretty much summed up my exact thoughts on the matter. I'm downright shocked that I can't seem to quickly find another thread asking whether tulpas can wake their host up, but if anyone else knows of/can find one, please let me know. I'm almost entirely certain it's been asked before in its own thread.
  14. As detailed above, the answers to these questions can largely be answered by reading through the FAQ, some of the Guides, or through use of the search function. If you have another question, feel free to create a new thread, but first, please do go through these available resources to try to get a better understanding of the concept, and use the search function to make sure that your question has not already been asked. Locked.
