Welcome to The Wall
« on: December 05, 2008, 02:16:56 PM »
Welcome to The Wall, Mortal Mist's corner dedicated to artistic expressions of dreamers.  Here is the place to post those pieces which have come from dreams or are dedicated to dreams.

Here we welcome all forms of art from prose to poetry, painting to sculpting, photography to 3D art, original musical compositions, dancers, and so on and so forth.  Our goal here is to use the talents and imagination we have been given in order to portray scenes we have seen in our dreams, develop creative interpretations of the dream world, or simply express our passion for being lucid.  Who knows?  Your art may be the inspiration behind someone else's next lucid dream!

Note: If you have general art to display, feel free to do so in The Den or Smoky Back Room.  Our hope is to maintain a focused purpose in this forum. 

Ideas:
For writers:

At some point in time I would like to propose a short-story challenge.  Those who would like to participate would compose a "short" original work of prose based on a particular topic.  This would probably take place after the holidays - depending on how many people are interested in this idea - and there will be more information.

For photographers:

Feel free to post any of your dream-like photographs, or any pictures you've taken that inspire your imagination!

If you have any further ideas and would like to organize an event, let me know.

Interested in the short story challenge, as long as the topic isn't aliens. I'm too hip for Spielberg.

Great intro Ame. Now all you need is the name...

What's up with this section?

My post is the newest, but isn't displayed until the second page. The dates are all funky and junk.

ITS CRAZY.

The forum is set differently for some reason. It is likely whenever a forum is made there is a standard option that sets it to where threads are ordered by when the topic was posted, not the latest reply. That appears to be what's happening on this board.

You can see this same thing happen in other small newly created forums, such as the Moonlit Meadows forum. Normally no one says anything about it so it doesn't get fixed, but really once someone with access knows there's an issue they can just check the right box and fix it right up.

I don't understand.

We do have different options for sorting - somebody asked for that once upon a time.  I'll go check and see if this is set up any different.

The WILD section used to be ordered wrongly, until I sent mu a pesky pm :P Maybe he can fix this one too? Unless you have already looked at it pj.

Maybe it was requested once and then that particular boards settings were used to make other boards?

Either I fixed it or mu needs to sort it out.  I did something.  Does it seem more right now?

Looks good to me :goodjob:

I think that the setting where it orders threads by the date the topic was posted, rather than by latest reply, is used for archiving purposes. Like I use it to keep roleplay threads in their proper chronological order when they get archived at my forum.

Its nifty to have the option but I think its probably used only rarely. For example it might make sense to use it for the newsletter archives so people can comment on them without changing their chronological order.
