IMPORTANT
In this past October (2020) the Shifti Community lost Chris "Robotech Master" Meadows to an accident involving an SUV hitting his electric bike and leaving the scene. While we may never know the full story of this event, the administrators of Shifti will work to preserve his account and works here as he'd wish us to. Thank you all for being such excellent people.

:::Nah, unsigned usually either means the user forgot to add the tildes or isn't bothering because he isn't logged in anyway. I see nothing inherently wrong with unsigned comments in general (though I do add signatures for them simply to make it easier to keep track of conversations). In this particular case, though, the commenter does seem to be a little confused about the nature of Shifti. :) [[User:Bryan|Bryan]] 03:22, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

Not sure where this belongs; it seems as though this René Magritte painting, [http://www.abcgallery.com/M/magritte/magritte57.html ''Collective Invention'' (1934)], is crying out for a story to go with it.  --[[User:Trismegistus Shandy|Trismegistus Shandy]] 22:12, 4 May 2008 (EDT)

:Heh! If there's no good place to put something like this, how about we create one? I'm thinking an [[ideas and inspirations]] page (or some similar page title) where random tidbits like this could be listed. With the understanding that ideas posted there could be used freely by other authors, and that the contents of the page may be pruned or archived over time if it gets cluttered, it'd serve as a general forum-like sort of place. Joysweeper's recently been working on a personal "idea bank", as an example - see [[Joysweepers Incoherent Idea Bank]]. Though that's explicitly intended as for-Joysweeper-only.

Revision as of 21:45, 4 May 2008

Hello friends, I wish I had come here earlier as the forums are well organized and I look forward to gaining further knowledge and sharing my experiences. Ive been reading the posts and learning quite a bit from the members.

Forums? You might have the wrong site :P
Shifti is a wiki, and we do strive to have it structured in a very coherent and easy to understand manner.
Anyway… Shifti exists for authors and fans alike. If you really enjoy the site, you could help support it. And you can also register and contribute your own works. ShadowWolf 01:30, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
Yes, this is more than a little odd. The poster might have at least left a name. I'm inclined to think of unsigned comments outside of user and story pages as spam and thus deletable. --Buck 02:59, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

Inverse mermaids and idea banks

Not sure where this belongs; it seems as though this René Magritte painting, Collective Invention (1934), is crying out for a story to go with it. --Trismegistus Shandy 22:12, 4 May 2008 (EDT)
