Eleri, you make a good point re keeping up a positive front - most especially with newcomers, And, of course, I agree there, I had been a bit surprised at Karkadann's first post only because I thought it sounded as though less friendly encounters were suddenly on the rise - his response there too clarified that for me.

I've never (fortunately) had any unfriendly encounters in the Cavern,but if I did, it would probably make me feel like hiding, depending on what it was. So, I can imagine how much more intense that would be for any newcomer who might be venturing about. However, that made me think about how one projects feelings here, and it's hard to sometimes convey much more than a neutral feeling - not because of anything about URU, or the issues it's had to face, but just generally,
I'm not sure whether I can project friendliness - unless I am making a response to something someone might ask me.
Responding to someones inquiry is different as one can always do that in as helpful a manner, but at least in my journey through different ages, I usually have specific goals I want to manage or whatever, and I'm not thinking along social lines - but perhaps that's just the point - to keep that sort of thing in mind just so if one encounters someone new to URU that given any opportunity for interaction,that such could be a positive one.

I guess I'm trying to think about how one would project a friendliness other than to respond helpfully to an inquiry.
But now that I understand what you both were trying to get across, I think we're definitely on the same page at least.

Hu?? is my grammer getting better?


No, Karkadann, I was just self admitting my own purposeful misuse of the "Here Here" or "Hear Hear" for two reasons, 1) not being sure which was correct, 2) I wanted to let you know that I heard you, right here, (and agreed with you) so both belonged, 3) Since I founded this particular guild, I thought it best that I tell on myself <Edit - I know, I gave three reasons :P >

I took a look at the log-in page (just before I got a stack dump) and saw... 4.3!

Congratz everyone!

Hear, hear. It's derived from hear ye, hear ye.

Oyez!
Definition: hear! attend! (a cry uttered usually twice by a court officer to command silence and attention, as before court is in session, and formerly by public criers).

afaik, 'oyez' comes from france. didnt know it could have crossed the lake to get to you.
it's something that the GoME could (and should ?) use when they come in the cavern :D
