You are a fool then and unworthy of any xITP prizes please hand in your dragon one at the desk.

I am a fool because I have a critique on a piece of art, which is, inherently I might add, subjective? Surely you jest. No, no, I can see how one who thinks they are more worthy than the Obsidian Demi-Goddess herself would think such a thing. It is your own inadequacy that leads you to such delusions of grandeur after all. When I conquer your pathetic home, I will remember to take my time with you.

I tire of this whelp's whinging which would restore repute... A friend drawing a picture of you does not make you more black. I dare you to show in one way how you are 'more black' than me. That is what people want to know, is it not?

I need not show how I am infintitly more black than you, for it is a very fact of nature and reality.

"Hi there, my name's Prometheus. Why am I chained to this rock, having my liver eaten by this eagle? You may have heard a lot of nonsense about me stealing fire from Zeus, but the truth is, well, let's just say that I made an unwise choice for OrangeITP. So, show some forethought (hah!) and vote for Chunklets, the orangest orange guy ever to be orange! The bird agrees."

A poor man's excuse. You are not 'infintitly'[sic] more black than a small half-dead mouse, let alone myself. If you cannot provide actual substantial reasons, I am sorry, you are completely unworthy of such a title. I shall use an old earth phrase here: "put up or shut up!" You haven't shown anything that makes you more black than me or more worthy of a title than me. At all.

I believe the fact that more people nominated me than you speaks for itself.

Not really, I came in on almost the last day after a few people nominated me and said 'well hey, I'll follow this.' The number of nominations I had rose from about 4 to 13 in one day. Not to mention the fact that I'm notoriously inactive on the forum, so very few of you new folk have yet to really learn much if anything about me. Simply put, you're a child compared to me in this league. I have been black on this forum far longer than you, and I will continue to be black on this forum for far longer.

darkblade
2007-10-20, 05:53 PM
So you think that because you have been here longer than me, you are therefore more black?

Does that mean that an apple that fell from the tree last month is more of an apple than one that fell today?

No the older apple turns into a pile of rotten mush becoming less like an apple and more like compost.

As it is with blackness or any other colour it fades with age.

I have been black for a shorter period of time but because of that I am blacker than you are.

Black coloring does, aye. Have you seen the far reaches of the universe where the light has yet to shine? Where there's no matter to expend or reflect light?
The true dark, true black?
Billions of years, with no fade.
You clearly do not understand black, my dear.

And just as she has been heralded, with her black presence as devoid to light as the far reaches of the universe in each of my mind would even hope to conceive, I do so believe, that Saithis is more black than you.

Alright, lengthy speech time. Breath deep, you're an Emperor, these come naturally.

Posters of the Playground! Some of you may question whether I may deserve to be Green ITP over others. Others of you may question whether I deserve it or not. Allow me to put your doubts to rest.

First, the basics: name, avatar, sig. My name is an utterly original creation of my own; it was not drawn upon some prior fiction or based on another character. It is an original name, a new concept, and what color better correlates to newness than green? My avatar- Well, what need be said for the green in that? A half-orc wearing a green cape, equipped to blend into the natural world. Heck, even his scars are green... olive green if I'm not mistaken. My signature is modest, simple, and direct, much like the color green in MTG card game that I favor. The most distinct element in the sig is my Thog ITP banner, which displays our favorite greenskin wearing a leprechaun costume.

Speaking of Thog ITP, that should attest to my greeness as well. Before this contest had even begun, many of you were praising my greeness, both inner and outer. Not many other titles have been bestowed upon me other than Emperor, which is a new title for a new empire. As I've already noted, newness is next to greeness. Furthermore, the banner of the empire is predominantly green (waving proud below) and, although I've yet to get images for them, the warriors and spellcasters of the empire will have green on their uniforms.

As for my personality, I'm direct and relentless, singleminded and practically feral when defending what I value, and have a running theme of being a scout, which is essentially a rogue built for a green enviroment. Once more, reference avatar. As a point toward directness, I should note that subliminal messages aren't very green from where I sit (my throne, need an image for that too (green cushions.))

Well, with all that said, I need only plant my flag.

And its dutch.

And for the case Castaras claimed always to speak blue in The Town :

Friends! Forumites! Playgrounders! Lend me your eyes.

With all this heated debate going on in other categories such as that between Sathis and Darkblade, the humble category of white in the playground has been largely overlooked.

Most of you may know me, both as a Doctor and a bath, these two things are synonimous with cleanliness and the colour white. If you still doubt my white-ness then be appeased by the fact I do in fact study Biology and I'm often seen wearing a white lab coat which is kept immaculate lest I disturb experiments.

To end I leave you with this statement.

Dr. Bath: Bang and the stain is gone The best choice.

I may not have the photoshop skills that Sweetrein has.
I may not have the time that Castaras has.
I may not have been as long on these forums as north.

But I am The Best choice for Blue ITP!
I have an unhealthy obsession with blue.
My desk is blue,
My flask is blue,
My books are blue,
My wallet is blue,
The walls of my room are blue,
My curtains are blue,
I use this :smalltongue: blue emoticon a lot,
My paper basket is blue,
My deodorant bottle is blue,
My pencils are blue,
My pillow is blue,
My blanket is blue,
My bed is blue,
My carpet is blue,
My jacket is blue,
Most of my clothing is blue,
My clock is blue
My watch is blue.
My fur is blue.
My sunglasses are blue.
The background on my pc is blue.
My eyes are Blue.
When I am active with characters in The Town, I have always spoken in blue. I am cold like blue, I can release destruction in a second, like the ocean, which is often associated with blue, I can go on for miles and miles, like the ocean which is often associated with blue.
I give you cookies if you vote for me.

Thenk you all for your time if you have read this, if not then you SHOULD.
If you have already voted for me, these are again reasons NOT to change your vote.

Vote Blue, Vote Dallas-Dakota!

I'l just quote myself here.

People, people, people, what the duce?
I have way too little votes for Purple ITP, while I am obviously the best candidate. I mean, wizard! C'mon!

Everyone knows wizards are the most purplish thing around.
Those other guys? They're just frauds. Serpentine is only half purple, and nothing other than her tail alligns with the colour!
And the cube? Well, don't get me wrong, he's a great guy, but he might as well have been any other colour.

Conclusion: the other candidates need a whole lot of this before they're even remotely as purple as me:

Playgrounders! Cast your vote for Emperor Ganurath! If you believe he was the best choice for Thog in the Playground, then you must also choose him as "Green" in the Playground! Thog is virtually the personification of inner and outer greenness!

Servants of the Empire, you must choose Bloddyredcommie as your candidate for Red! Not only does he have red in his name and red in his avatar, but being "red" is what a communist is all about!

Choose Haruki-kun as your candidate for White in the Playground! Not only does Haruki-kun contain white in his avatar, but he is an angel! An ANGEL! What creature can you think of (aside from a unicorn) so clearly associated with the colour white? Anyone here who is a fan of Magic: The Gathering will know what I'm talking about.

Finally, choose SurlySeraph as Gray in the Playground! The guy is a freaking Gray Guard and a mighty servant of the Empire!

Can I ask why you would exclude me from being purple? I mean, look at my fancy cape. A light purple inlay to dark purple fabric. Where your nice suit just is one puple...clearly we can see where the paint can was already used. :smalltongue:

Plus I live in MN, a place where not only the teams take purple as their primary color, but also the vehicles as well. (44% of purple vehicles sold by GM in the US are in the state of MN.)

Vote Em for Pink, salmon may be a pinkskin, but in personality, Em is pink.

Huh? just because i'm a "pinkskin" isn't the reason i'm running at all.

I'm gonna go ahead and post my reasons again.

Reasons i should be voted as pink in the playground:

. Salmon are associated with the colour pink.

. Pink is a very feminine colour and yes i am feminine, and not afraid to admit it. AtomicKitKat even said i look pretty in the You thread for goodness sake! :smalltongue:

. Pink is an immature silly colour. Ahem, I chose "Almighty Salmon" as my User name.

. Pink has always been my favourite colour as a child (Yes i know that's kinda weird). And it is still one of my favourite colours today. (Pictures!)

. And my last and favourite reason i introduce you to Pink Tortoise. Or so i named him.

http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/2484/pinktortoiseoh3.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Now this little fella got me through some tough times. When my parents had my little brother and sister and i was kind of neglected, it comforted me having it around. Even when my grandparents passed away it also helped me. I've had it for 12 years now.

Alright! Those are my reasons.

Thanks for nominating me and Vote Salmon for Pink! :smallwink:

They're voting for you they clearly don't. The rules say active users, not active because I was nominated users.

Ganurath
2007-10-22, 02:58 PM
Or because some of the voters are running for other colors and are hoping to ride the Saithis block of voters to victory.

Edot: Saithis has 7.92 posts per day, darkblade has .29 posts per day. Who's inactive now?

darkblade
2007-10-22, 03:01 PM
Not my fault school blocks GITP, so I can't post as much as I want to.

Saithis Bladewing
2007-10-22, 03:10 PM
Darkblade, including SMBG posts, I have around 12,000 posts to my name since I signed up. I do not always post actively these days because I have health issues and issues at school. I still read the forums almost every day and I post in any thread that jumps to intrigue me. It's not my fault I can't spend every last scrap of my time posting on here. When I recover and have enough spare time again, don't worry, I'll rise back to my usual 100+ posts per day.

Regardless, I fail to see how post count has anything to do with this competition. Just because I am unable to post as actively as some of the old members does not mean I am any less black. There is a reason people nominated me before I started to campaign, and that's because I am simply the most black of all things here. When the polls end, you will see that just as my supporters have.

I'm sorry? Only my name and avatar? :smallconfused: If I choose not to make myself look desperate as others may be doing, that's my business.

I'm going away for a few days, and won't be able to continue my campaign. So, I thought I'd recap before I go why I'm the best choice for Purple in the Playground:

Everyone else is just wearing it, except Gelatinous Cube, who has no substance.

Since none of my opponents for Brown ITP have actively campaigned (yet are somehow still beating me in the polls grumble mumble), I'd like to remind you all why you should for me:


We start our tour immediately off with veiled threats, a trend which will continue throughout the rest of this post, and possibly the rest of your life (!)

http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/8389/brownitpfw4.jpg


Allow me to indroduce you to my two good friends Obi-Wan Kenobi and 'B' here, whom are sure to convince you - through entirely legit means - whom to vote for. I'd like to add on a competely unrelated note that you don't want to upset either of them (!)

Obi-Wan: http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/6994/brownitp2cj8.jpg

No mindtricks involved. No sirree.

'B' for Breshm- whatever:
http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/8008/vforvendettamoviex1bhx4.jpg

Behold! Before your very being stands naught but the bygone beacon of benevolence borne to ban the baneful from this barren borough. By breaking the boundaries built by those at Beelzebub’s behest, I shall bereave the blameless from their baleful barons, so that none need ever bear the burden of brutal baseness again. Now embarking on this brave, believably brazen business of bringing about that which I have betrothed myself to, I shall bring to bear the emblem of my belief.

* puts the following symbol on a nearby wall *

http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/3153/bforbreshmwhateverbe5.jpg

By bestowing this brilliant badge on this banal barrier, I am now bound to banish these bitter, brutish buggers by boldly brandishing my blades before them, for they are no better than bloodthirsty beasts.

But, before long, I must leave. I bid you to cast your ballots for Freshmeat as Brown ITP, and until next we bump into each other, you may call me ‘B’.

My endorsements.....

Emerald Rose - Been green since the day she joined the forums, not since the day she won a Thog award.

Serpentine - Purple Scales, but has pink flesh like the rest of us humans. Whose entirely purple? - The Purple Gelatenous Cube of Doom. Certainly, my purpleness is endorsed by Atreyu (See Sig), but that's for the Llama Llama Duck game you should all come and join.

And blacker the death? Who do you see when the light of your life fades? Death! On person blacker then death is Saithis - the one responsible for sending many into that dark abyss.

Wadledo - you're a very cute orange, and I love the new aura around the avi. But dangit - Chunklets has been orange since before custom avi's were popular.


The standard forum avatars were good enough for my grandpa so they're good enough for me.
Quoted from a thread long before the forum switch. I was going to use it to poke fun at Chunklets for getting away from the forum avi's, but I crossed that line before he did, so no throwing stones. Anyway, my point is that he's always sported the kobold in orange, before custom avi's were here.

Calamity for Red - because I've seen him angry. And there's nothing more red then that!

Blue - I can't endorse either SweetRein or Castaras. It's too close for me to even speculate. Both have blue, both have cats, do either of you know any Jazz?

Zeb the Troll for grey. He's like a rock. And no, not in a Chevy kind of way either.

Dr. Bath - Tubs are white, Tubs are to get clean. Cleanliness is associated with White.

So, I thought I'd recap before I go why I'm the best choice for Purple in the Playground:

Everyone else is just wearing it, except Gelatinous Cube, who has no substance.

Three things:
1. I'm not just wearing purple, I'm a wizard, we are the pure essence of purple.
2. You, on the other hand, are just wearing it, even if it is your tail that's purple. Who knows, maybe my purple robes are part of my body, eh?
Even so, there's no particular reason for your tail to be purple, it's just a random colour pick, where-as my colour scheme was carefully thought out.
and 3. Those pictures have the worst quality ever.

For those to lazy to read the above, this sums it up: Vote MrEdwardNigma Purple ITP! You know you wanna :smallamused:

Emerald Rose - Been green since the day she joined the forums, not since the day she got a custom avatar.The bolded section is my correction, since it's apparent what the intentions behind the endorsement is. Of course, it's understandable that you would overlook my support of half-orcs and green appearance from prior to Thog ITP for the purposes of this endorsement.

But wait. Is this an avatar contest? :s Or a concept contest? Or what? Personally, in any way I can think of it, Serpentine is "more purple" than the other contestants.

I don't really think amount of colour in the avatar or much less quality of photos (?) can be relevant points here. She has already proven that the colour purple is a big part of her life as a person, and that she uses it as much as she can, even outside these forums or this contest. Those who know her a bit know this to be true and to be a part of her personality. I don't think you can compete with that.

But that's just my 2 cents ^^

It's all relevant. The amount in your avi, the way you act, the RL inspirations. However I don't think that Serpentine has proven any more or less then I have in RL, except she used her bosoms, which obviously I can not. :smallamused: (But I would if I could - so Kudos to her for that.). I however have chosen not to beat people over the head with pictures about it. One post, one time.

Thogh really, how to define a color....
Purple (http://encarta.msn.com/encnet/features/dictionary/DictionaryResults.aspx?search=purple)

As you will note from the definitions in the link, Purple is the color of rank for a cardinal and/or a bishop. Now while the other candidates for purple envelop many things, a wizard, a serpent, a giant jello cube, I am the only who come close to anything religous being a cleric myself.

Also noted in the definition - Purple a cloth or robe in the color purple that was formerly worn as a symbol of imperial, royal, or other high rank. Well, again, only one in the contest for purple who acts in a royal or regal manner. Though I'm more like a knight in nature, one would argue that a knight is indeed of high rank in royalty.

Another excerpt (http://www.color-wheel-pro.com/color-meaning.html)
Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

Let's break that down.

Royalty - See note above. Check
Nobility - Check
Luxury - Nice cape - Check
Ambition - Check
Wealth - Heh, maybe not this one, though my town character did re-make the fancy restaurant used by the citizens, so wealth from that. - Check
Extravagance - Yep. Check
Wisdom - I did convince Mr. Edward Nigma and others that Red Sauce on Pasta is not always the best choice.
Diginity - Check
Independence - Check
Creativity - A big large check here. Ed McMahon size Check.
Mystery - Check
Magic - Yeah, that fire don't stay on my hand by itself - Check.

The proof is there, all I ask is that you read and look before you dismiss.

Awesome link, Supagoof!

So, thanks to Supagoof, I now have more evidence that I should be Green in the Playground. (http://www.color-wheel-pro.com/color-meaning.html)

Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.

Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a 'greenhorn' is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.

Breaking this down:
Nature - I love nature with a passion. Check.
Growth - I'm thirteen, I'm still growing and developing. Check.
Harmony - I'm passionate about music. Check.
Freshness - Check.
Fertility - ...Okay, I got nothing.
Safety - As a Paladin of Freedom/Bard, I work to preserve everyone's freedom, but also their safety. Check.
Money - Okay, not so much money. I don't care much for money, money can't buy me love. :smallwink:
Healing Power - Check.
Vision - 20/20. Check.
Stability - I have a solid head on my shoulders. Check.
Lack of Experience - I'm 13, BIG CHECK! :smallbiggrin:
Hope - Oh yeah, checkedy check.

10/12, and I actually never thought of money as being green, really. Well I mean paper money, duh, but still I associate money more with gold and silver type colors.

1. I don't really see how wizards are the pure essence of purple. Unless you mean octarine, but that's more a greenish-purple. I'd imagine them more as white (or rather off-white, considering all the crud they get in their beards :smalltongue:)
2. Serpentine is hardly merely "wearing" her scales :smallconfused: Unlike your robes, they're kinda stuck on. And it was absolutely not a random colour pick. There is absolutely no other colour that I would even consider having for her tail, or for her clothing, or, for that matter, for her soul.
3. Well excuuuuuuuse me Mr Richypants for not being able to afford all the bestest newest digital cameras :smallmad:

I've demonstrated that purple is a significant part of my real life, which is more than any of my competitors have. The reason I put all those pictures into one page is because I'm not going to be able to defend myself in the crucial final days of the competition (indeed, I shouldn't be here now...)

I think you'll find I've already addressed this issue.

I would use the purple emoticon more often, but I'm a happy person, and purple's a happy colour. I wouldn't want to send people the wrong message, now, would I? And for the record, if I can make something purple, it generally is. That includes AIM and MSN fonts, textbooks, etc. As for the idea of purple being all about brilliance, well, I can't really fault you there. Except, of course, that it's more intimately associated with imperialism. Now, who best embodies the imperial philosophy, hmm? Some little snot-nosed soldier, accustomed to taking orders from above and bound by his silly little code of honour? A homicidal maniac with a taste for riddles? A vampire with a pretty cloak? A big wobbly cube?! No! The imperialism of purple requires independence, forward and original thinking, a free spirit unshackled by the concerns of lowly subjects or the directions of an overlord! In other words,

SERPENTINE

Regarding that checklist...

Royalty - Covered.
Nobility - Done.
Luxury - My personal comfort will always be at the upper end of what I can afford.
Ambition - I have lots of 'em.
Wealth - Working on it. My mother's well-off...
Extravagance - See "Luxury", but replace "comfort" with "style".
Wisdom - I'm told my Relationships advice is sound.
Diginity - ...Serpentine has it.
Independence - Ooooyep.
Creativity - And how (wish I had time to work on avis :smallfrown:)
Mystery - >.> <.<
Magic - What, you think science came up with that tail?

Octarine is actually a colour farther away from the visible spectrum on the purple side, rather than closer such as green would suggest,a s far as i remember anyways. However, I was simply referring to the archetypical wizard robe being purple in addition to a purple being a much richer, more sophisticated colour than any other colour, therefor more suitable for wizards. White is more of a cleric colour.

2. Serpentine is hardly merely "wearing" her scales :smallconfused: Unlike your robes, they're kinda stuck on. And it was absolutely not a random colour pick. There is absolutely no other colour that I would even consider having for her tail, or for her clothing, or, for that matter, for her soul.

I'd say imperialism is not royalty, and your confusing the two. Where the feudal class has indeed shown signs of dictatorship and monarchy, it is also the same class that has been bound by codes of conduct and honor. You say silly little code, I say better to live by code by choice then by rules of oppression. Knights of the round table are more associated with royalty then Fidel Castro and his imperialistic rule of Cuba ever will.

And just who are you calling a snot-nosed soldier? :smallamused: I'm no soldier! Though I may be a punk getting under your skin just a bit. :smalltongue: Careful though, you begining to show more red (anger) then purple.


Magic - What, you think science came up with that tail?Touch'e.

Actually, I think genetics. But as I do now know your full history, I have no way of knowing if you're a snake/human crossbreed or an enchanted creature. So I'll concede to you that magic helped with your creation. :smallwink: Perhaps a purple wizard changed you?

Um. Imperial = ruled by an emperor. Emperors = purple was around before, I think, kings = purple, but "imperial" and "royal" are to some extent interchangable and in any case my point is still valid. Castro may (or may not) be imperial, but I was thinking more along the lines of Alexander the Great, the Fredericks, the Caesars and so on. It is one thing to have a code of your own, and another to have it placed on you and dictated from above.
