  TYTANIA CHRONICLES - A Dragon Ball AU
Posted by: Elio - 01-04-2019, 05:07 AM - Forum: Modern INKers - No Replies

TYTANIA CHRONICLES
(A fantasy/sci-fi AU for the Dragon Ball series)
Part I: The Trial of Heroes

Premise:

Approximately one thousand years ago, an unknown entity had caused havoc to the universe, destroying everything including the Other World, the universes, and all that connects to it- except for the legendary warrior, Son Goku, the deities Zeno, Beerus and the Supreme Kai of Time, the Angel Whis, and the Super Dragon Balls. With the help of the Super Shenron, Goku was able to have every being reborn make the whole universe start anew - but as a result, the Shenron had given more than what his powers allowed, and vanished from the face of the world. Goku, on the other hand, was reborn - as are all his enemies and allies, but at a price most terrible: none of them will ever remember him, or what he would mean to them. Goku was also reborn with his memories & knowledge intact, and was given the task to investigate the being responsible for destroying the old Universes.


Thanks to that, the universe was reborn anew. Many past enemies are reborn as good people (with the exception of a few), and the new world oversaw the rise and fall of whole civilizations throughout the galaxies; its most glorious one yet being the birth and rise of Tytania, a kingdom run by the rough but noble Saiyans. Magic, alchemy and weapons are now more widely used, but there are still those who remember and uphold the ancient ways of martial arts and the usage of Ki. 

However, an unknown evil lurks the prosperous land, seeking nothing more than gain the power that had destroyed the past evil - and use it to their own twisted advantages. With new powers and new adventures, it's up to Goku and his (reconnected) friends and allies to ensure that this last universe remains safe and protected.

Genres:

Alternate Universe/Fantasy/Sci-fi

Commentary:

I've had this AU since I was 14. It's been 13 (it will be 14 considering I turn 27 this year) years now, and this AU has seen numerous expansions and revisions as I add in new stuff to it; it used to just be an AU that's highly influenced by Final Fantasy, but somewhere down the line I discovered Dragon Quest and Chrono Trigger, and made a LOT of revisions based on those two games, their lore and world building, and try to make them as cohesive to the Dragon Ball universe as possible. Down the line, there was also Dragon Ball Super, Heroes and Xenoverse to consider -- all of these provide me with a lot of information and new characters to add to and fit into this very extensive AU.

This AU's seen about three attempts at roleplay and one fanfiction that never got past the third chapter before it was somewhat lost for good, and numerous first-draft comics that never saw the light of day. Over the years, I've also lost a lot of notes and worldbuilding I've done up until 2009. I kind of regret not keeping them all in one place, but the good thing about this at least is that I can now build up on this AU with the knowledge and experience I've gotten over time also. 

If you have any commentary/suggestions, or just want to say you like the story, you can do so in this thread!

Whatever you might have known about us, and what we had been, the fights we've fought and the destinies we carved for ourselves -- forget it. That's old history, history long erased when this new universe was created. We're not who we used to be any more. Now our paths are leading into new destinies and new adventures -- adventures that even I never thought I'd embark on. 

My old story is a bedtime story told to kids aspiring to be heroes now. But I know everything about it is true. Let the old man that took care of me tell you that story of mine now.

My name is Goku. This is how it all began.

After disappearing for a long time from another unnamed site I'm back! I used to go by Shana because of my obsession over Shakugan no Shana which has since ended like a million years ago. Ya'll can call me Mell or Shana! I'm 22 (almost 23!) in SoCal. Currently married to a weeb. My favorite anime are Madoka Magica, Zombieland Saga, and Revue Starlight. I have really weird taste in anime so ask if I've watched it cause I probably have. I also cosplay and travel to lots of local cons in SoCal! I hope some of you remember me from all these years back. Let's make more memories together

  Statue of 'racist' Gandhi removed from Ghana university campus
Posted by: ShineCero - 12-19-2018, 03:48 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (4)

Quote:A statue of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi has been removed from Ghana's most prestigious university after complaints that he was racist against black Africans.

India's former president Pranab Mukherjee unveiled the statue to the global peace icon at the University of Ghana in Accra two years ago as a symbol of ties between the two nations. citing passages written by Gandhi claiming that Indians were "infinitely superior" to black Africans.

The online protest was one of a number on university campuses in Africa and beyond about the enduring symbols of the continent's colonial past. The Gandhi statue on the university's Legon campus in Accra appeared to have been removed overnight Tuesday to Wednesday, students and lecturers told AFP.

The head of language, literature and drama at the Institute of African Studies, Obadele Kambon, said the removal was an issue of "self-respect". The university authorities refused to comment while an official at Ghana's foreign affairs ministry said only: "It's an internal decision by the university."

Ghana's former government had said the statue would be relocated "to avoid the controversy... becoming a distraction from our strong ties of friendship" with India.

Though Gandhi is more commonly remembered for his non-violent resistance to British colonial rule in his native India, his legacy in Africa is more mixed. He lived and worked as a lawyer in South Africa from 1893 to 1915 before moving to India.

Fandom: Fairy Tail/Tales of Series

Summary: The fight against Acnologia is over and peace is restored to Earth Land. But now, Team Natsu has received a new mission from the Magic Council to help a mysterious man who has lost his memories, and ends up plunging them into a brand new adventure to save their world. Natsu X Lucy

Notes: Some of you know that I'm working on another Fairy Tail story called Our Amazing Guild, but I've decided to cancel it, mainly because I don't like where the story is going and I've lost motivation in writing it. So I decided to restart my Fairy Tail story and hopefully, it will be the last time I'll ever do such a thing. I hope you all enjoy my newest story!

  • The forum went through numerous logos throughout its history, but I finally decided that it times to have a more stable, permanent logo that is simple, straight to the point and best represent the nature of the forum. If you have wish to improve the logo, you are free to do so at your leisure.
  • Instead of constantly bugging users on creating graphic content, it is best to allow users to submit their own graphics based on the forum for usage purposes. Of course, you will get credit for your contributions.

Awards Update

In preparation for the New Year, majority of the awards will gain new looks, along with new requirements to obtain it. Furthermore, there is a revamp on the awards system on accomplishing awards; this is an attempt to boost activity and encourage people to bring in few new users. Of course, members will still keep majority of the earned awards from previous competitions/achievements. 
The following competitions, as the result of the new award system, will gains new ways:
  • Bob Ross Art Series and Sylvester Stallone Art Series

Flex Slider replaced by Bx-Slider

There were some slight issues with the Flex Slider; whenever more content added on, the circles do not function correctly the way it should. Thus, it will revert to the Bx-Slider for more stability; of course, this means the captions disappeared for now.

The Possible Return of Birthday Threads

Earlier this year, we have removed the possibilities of birthday threads because it proven too heavy for a load to consistently makes birthdays for all members (especially inactive ones). However, Birthday Threads might make a possible return, starting next month, as a singular thread, which recounts all the birthdays each month. The appearance will look like this:
  • Username [Link]
  • Picture
  • Message: On this day, it is the birth of [username]! Come and send awesome birthday messages to [username]!
  • The Birthday Thread [Name Pending] will be a record for all birthday threads, and it might include inactive ones. This idea is still in consideration phase; however, so let us know if it is a good idea!
New Member Ranks and Promotion

Starting next month, a new promotion system will kick into high gear; whereas, based upon users’ activity, they will get an automatic promotion. Instinct Members will have custom-made user ranks of their choosing!
  • Member: 1 Star
  • Super Member: 2 Stars
  • Master Member: 3 Stars
  • Ultra-Member: 4 Stars
  • Instinct Member: 5 Stars; Hardest level to achieved.

Competition Upcoming Events


Pokémon Cup Series, Christmas Bash! This is an competition where you can build a Christmas Theme Pokémon Team! There are three stages (each one with different formats), that gives you different awards (Second and Third Chance Awards)! The event will begin on 17 and ends on 21st!

  Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th
Posted by: ShineCero - 12-06-2018, 10:04 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (5)

Quote:Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tells The Verge. The new policy’s announcement comes just days after Tumblr was removed from Apple’s iOS App Store over a child pornography incident, but it extends far beyond that matter alone. “Adult content will no longer be allowed here,” the company flatly stated in a blog post published on Monday.

Banned content includes photos, videos, and GIFs of human genitalia, female-presenting nipples, and any media involving sex acts, including illustrations. The exceptions include nude classical statues and political protests that feature nudity. The new guidelines exclude text, so erotica remains permitted. Illustrations and art that feature nudity are still okay — so long as sex acts aren’t depicted — and so are breastfeeding and after-birth photos.

After December 17th, any explicit posts will be flagged and deleted by algorithms. For now, Tumblr is emailing users who have posted adult content flagged by algorithms and notifying them that their content will soon be hidden from view. Posts with porn content will be set to private, which will prevent them from being reblogged or shared elsewhere in the Tumblr community.

Users have a chance to appeal Tumblr’s decision in situations where they think there’s been a mistake, and the platform admits there’s a chance that the automated tools it’s using could make errors. It’s a process that could take a while, as a bulk of Tumblr posts feature explicit content. Users who run adult blogs can also export their content before the change takes place in order to save what they have.

Explicit blogs will be allowed to remain on the service, but they’ll be heavily censored for all visitors. Here’s Tumblr’s FAQ:

Tumblr Wrote:What if my blog (not to be confused with posts) was marked as “explicit” before December 17, 2018?

Blogs that have been either self-flagged or flagged by us as “explicit” per our old policy and before December 17, 2018 will still be overlaid with a content filter when viewing these blogs directly. While some of the content on these blogs may now be in violation of our policies and will be actioned accordingly, the blog owners may choose to post content that is within our policies in the future, so we’d like to provide that option. Users under 18 will still not be allowed to click through to see the content of these blogs. The avatars and headers for these blogs will also be reverted to the default settings. Additionally, posts from these blogs are kept out of search results.

Since Tumblr was founded in 2007, it has largely turned a blind eye to adult content. The company has tried to shield it from public view through Safe Mode and more stringent search filters. But in recent months — and under the ownership of Verizon’s Oath unit — it began to consider removing content more aggressively. “We’ve given serious thought to who we want to be to our community moving forward,” CEO Jeff D’Onofrio says in a blog post. “We’ve realized that in order to continue to fulfill our promise and place in culture, especially as it evolves, we must change.” D’Onofrio says Tumblr weighed the pros and cons thoroughly before making its decision. It also decided not to remove explicit accounts because it wanted to give these accounts a chance to post appropriate content instead.

Under Oath, Tumblr has been cleaning up its platform more rapidly than it had done in previous years. In August, Tumblr announced new community guidelines that banned revenge porn, hate speech, and posts that glorified school shootings.

If users mourn the loss of adult content on Tumblr, D’Onofrio claims they have many other solutions. “There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community,” he said. That argument will do little to curtail anger over this decision from people who have used Tumblr as a safe place to enjoy, share, and discuss their preferred flavor of porn and adult content.
