Dhiamn Mollais vr'Tem'nnhaivher (New Place for Discussions -- New Fora)






Dhiamn Mollais vr'Tem'nnhaivher
(New Place for Discussions)
[New Forum Site]


Following recent events (and while I am loathe to air such grievances publicly, the other party involved has done so already at least twice in an effort to save face, and therefore, I will state, for purposes of setting things straight, that the causes were personal disagreements of a real-world political and economic nature, which were preceded by his assumption applied to Linguistics that "democracy" means that the opinions of those ignorant of Linguistics are just as valid as the certain knowledge of those trained in Linguistics, and, while those were mere annoyances to me, there was also a stated intention to deny me credit for my work on expanding the vocabulary of the Rihan language, which was a much more serious affront indicating a total lack, not only of respect, but also, of integrity), our organization found itself in need of a new site to host our fora.  I never asked anyone to set up or host a forum site for us, but someone volunteered and did so, and we used that site for some time.  However, after he started working at a new job, his attitude began to change in several ways.  Some of the officers of our organization witnessed some of the events as they unfolded, and some have seen evidence which I was able to show them.

That's all I want to say about the past (but, by the Mother, I have numerous screenshots and logs, and even whole webpages saved, and I will dig them out and post them if he doesn't stop the childish routine of attempted character assassination), and now I want to move on.  Hopefully, this will be the last time I have to address the matter publicly.

This situation of needing a new site to host our fora was anticipated for some time, and so I had already taken steps in preparation by backing up all of the old fora (among other things ...).  I had also already been looking into alternatives;  frankly, I never wanted to have to rely on someone else, nor be beholden to them.  And as I already said, I didn't ask for him to set up that site;  he volunteered it and so we used it, but now his hospitality has been withdrawn, and so ...

I have set up a forum site for us myself now.  It will take a while to re-post everything and re-code it, but that's just a matter of copy-pasting and going back over to ensure that the BBCode is applied to make boldface, italic, hyperlink, etc.  A simpler way exists, but it would involve my uploading of things which would eat up my data allowance (because I live in an area where there are no unlimited data packages available for internet access no matter how much I am willing and able to pay, and I'm not terribly fond of paying "overage" fees).  Thus, I have to ask you all to be patient while I rebuild (although, fortunately due to foresight, not from scratch).  However, we do have fora again (That was fast, ie?  Like I said, I felt it coming for some time before it arrived.).  I've been working on this site for a couple of days now, and while it's still not quite ready for primetime, I think it's at a point now where we can start accepting members.  You'll need an account with Enjin.com, and you'll need to apply to our site and wait for me to approve your application;  I don't have any other Admins, SuperMods, or Moderators with many real privileges yet (although some have been assigned some of those tags and do have some privileges at this time), so I will still have to be the one approving applications until I have set up additional tools and privileges.

With no further ado, then, here is the link to the new forum site:

(OOC) Giving Tuesday




Leonard Nimoy, 1931-2015



Today is "Giving Tuesday," a global day dedicated to giving back.  For those who can and would like to give to a charity on this Giving Tuesday, many worthy causes exist.  I would like to recommend the following:



The COPD Foundation
in memory of Leonard Nimoy




in honor of the many Women who are members of the Tal'Diann




in support of the several Trans persons who are members of the Tal'Diann




in support of several Autistic members of the Tal'Diann




Thanks for giving, you who are willing and able to do so.

If you are not able to give, that's alright, too.  I've been there myself, and I understand.

Erima Mnei (Our Legacy)






Erima Mnei
(Our Legacy)
by Ji'ana ir'Vastam t'Charvon
(Giovanna, la Succuba Suprema)


I have written lyrics (in Rihan) for this anthem:



Erima Mnei
(Our Legacy)
by Ji'ana ir'Vastam t'Charvon


Erima Mnei
Lleiset Mnei,
Kreh'dhhokh Mol'Rihan.

u'Danno culhas draed
Ranasaiahr'dhohh

(Freedom, Justice
And Equality promise life.
Our foes
Will be overcome.)


Aish'dhaelir selae,
Ecurai mnei;
Hathame'dhael khumae,
Mosdabhae'r rhadai.
(Warbirds fly,
Our hope;

To liberate the people.)

(From ruins
Risen
Is Our Legacy.
