I'm using Chrome with the latest update. Should I use Edge/IE instead?

I have no problem posting submissions, but somehow submitting an idea, just wont work..
Is there a workaround?

..and, yes, we need someway to delete a "test idea"..  :wink:

fortification should work for this week - castles, forts, underground missile silos, mechanized space stations.... This could fit all kinds.

From watching Life After People, and eyeballing the wreckage of the apocalypse, it was somewhere between one to three centuries in the past. Some areas are much younger but I could argue isolation protecting them.

It kinda made me happy because the big fantasy thing now,  Game of Thrones,  I can't particularly stand
We're on the same page here. Not a GoT fan at all (which is too bad because before George RR Martin starting typing incest fantasies with one hand, he wrote some amazing science fiction and created the Wild Cards series).

Back to Shannara, not done with the season yet, but I find myself increasingly annoyed at the emphasis on the post-apoc stuff. Now, it's been approximately 3 decades since I read The Sword (and The Elfstones and The Wishsong) of Shannara, so maybe I don't remember so well, but it's supposed to be... not post-apocalyptic, but fantasy built centuries after an apocalypse, with only the barest remnants. And at one point the elf king mentions it's been "hundreds of thousands of years." There should not be so much stuff laying around. It's annoying. It pulls me out of the moment.

It's all a bit too MTV for me. Still watching, but not loving. Liking, sorta.

Hum, I tested out inputting an idea and it worked for me except that I can't delete it now and so now on the front page, there is now a dummy idea titled testing.

As far as I'm aware by clicking on the table which shows extra perks that comes with leveling up, idea submission is never one of the perks. But I just tried inputting an idea from the quick menu and it worked for me.

I think one of the first questions the admins would ask is what browser you using?

Hi Guys.

I just have to ask, since I can't find the answer..

Does "Input Idea" in the "quick" tab work?

I have tried to submit several ideas, but when I press "Submit Idea" nothing happens. Is my level to low?

Thanks for a nice site btw..

Cheers :wink:

I think adaption of books for TV/movies in the majority of cases always make the story lose flavour. Luckily, LoR movie (just LoR, not Hobbit) is passable for me but I still prefer the book though I'm aware that there are people who take the opposite view to me. So I can sympathise.

Personally, I haven't read GoT and don't intend to, same with Harry Potter. The former cos I remember Strolenati are divided on whether it's a good series or not (I vaguely remember a forum thread on GoT and someone said that he/she doesn't know the author manages to say nothing for like 10 Chaps or sth, or is this Robert Jordan and his ultra long series? I might have mixed up between the two) but mainly cos it's dark fantasy which is not my normal cup of tea. Don't like Harry Potter since saw movie of the first book and I don't really like the underlying world that reminds me of witchery (I'm an avid fan of fantasy but just happens to not like witchery) and plus I don't really like fantasy series pitched at younger audiences than full adults. I do read YA once in a while and there are one specific set of YA series that I like due to the underlying world and the set of protagonists in the starting series but that's it in terms of my appreciation of YA fantasy. HP is supposedly YA but the first movie felt like it could be for primary school kids so I felt like it's pitched at a level 'too young' for my taste. So never thought it it's worth my while to pick up the series in first place even though later I read sth about the series turning into for adult later on.
