I stumbled across your profile and read it. That’s an interesting story about you discovering Httyd! My favorite character is also Astrid. You seem like a fun person, you said on your profile you like to talk to people, do you want to talk? Do you have discord? If not we can just “message wall” each other. :) Hope you have a good day/night!
That's really nice of you! Unfortunately I don't have discord, but we can message each other- I would love to talk to you! Thank you so much for saying hello to me, and I hope you have a nice day/night as well! :)
Ps Sorry about the wait between replying- I'm on my final few days of holiday in Italy and haven't been on fandom very much!
Oh, the character info box! So if you look on the right hand side when you're editing your profile, there should be a blue thing which says "Add other templates". (You might have to scroll down a bit to find it.) Click on that, then click "Character Infobox". It will add it in for you, and you can edit the parameters (so like, Name, Age, Height, etc) and add a photo! I hope this helps: if not I'll try and explain more clearly. :)
Oh yeah it has to be a photo already on the wiki, so if you upload the photo first just as a photo then try putting in the url it might work- that's what I did, but it took a few tries. I'm glad you managed to do the info box! :)
So you have to upload the photo you want onto your actual profile first: when you go onto edit profile, it should say upload photo on the right hand options. Once you've clicked that, click add photo, then upload photo, then select the one you want from your computer/files. Once you've done that, the photo will be on fandom, so you can then write the link in the parameters for the inforbox. :)
This is so brilliant- I did not realise! I thought Ravenkhanna had maybe just gone, so I was kind of sad, but this is great! I'd love to chat with you Revna and thank you so much for messaging me! I am ALWAYS forgetting my passwords for various accounts, so I have written them all down and labelled them "PASSWORDS- DO NOT OPEN" and stuffed them into my desk, which is probably a bad idea, but oh well. :D
I'm forgetful, I know, and because of that and the fact that I'm a more junior member of the fandom, my edits aren't really appreciated. I could say the same with your photo edits after I read your message wall :<
Thank you, that would be brilliant if you could do her! Your art is so good, and as mine is definitely NOT, it really helps if other people can do some for me!
Yeah, with my gallery edits, I seem to keep doing things wrong, but I guess I'll learn as I go... I just like editing things; ony thing is, I don't know if what I'm doing is appreciated or whether it's just sort of being "politely tolerated" :D so I understand how you feel
Hey Gwendolyn, I'm almost done with the digital drawing of Adagio! I'm preparing the lineart right now. I'll probably be able to send it to you later today! Again, thanks for being supportive and kind :)
Adagio and I say thank you so much!! it makes me so grateful to meet kind people like you who will spend their free time drawing my little dragon! I love your drawing, you are so kind to do this! And don't worry about the quality, it's fine. :D
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to message a Staff Member. Thank you for your contributions!
The images you recently uploaded had black bars on the sides, some kind of screen reflection/corruption, they're all pngs rather than jpgs, and many had the video play button and other tech options visible in the screenshot. Therefore none of them are acceptable for the galleries. You may add such images to your profile if you like, but all images added to our wiki galleries must abide by the image policies.
Thank you for your efforts in adding more images to the Riders of Berk galleries. They're MUCH better than your first images! However, the new ones could still use some work-
Many are blurry/fuzzy, and others show the subject far to the side or in a corner of the image. Action shots are usually a little blurry, and fuzziness could be a result of screen resolution or network speed, and I know that can't always be helped. But we'd appreciate if you could pay more attention to how clear an image is before taking a screenshot. And the subject (the character you're focusing on) should be near the center of the screen, or sharing the center of the screen with other characters. On their own they may not look too bad. But it's very obvious when seeing them next to higher quality images in the same gallery.
Please don't be unkind to me. I am new to this website and I am sorry if I made incorrect edits. I was under the impression that I was being helpful. This message has really upset me, especially as I was only trying to help.
If you remember we have a Live! Chat earlier. I was reading your profile and saw you are 13. I am too! I am also on SoD and have an character that looks a lot like yours. Just so you know, if you ever need me to pray for you feel free to message me.
P.S. I was reading your other messages and just wanted to say you are super kind. On the internet that's pretty rare and I just wanted to congratulate you for being that way.
Thank you so much! That is so nice of you, and one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me on this site! You are super kind as well.
It's so cool that we have loads of things in common! It's also really great to find another Christian on this site- and of course you can talk to me as well, if ever you need something prayed for. I'd love to chat with you again sometime! :D It's so nice to meet a kind person like you on here!
But I think I'm worthy of challenging your position as 'Biggest fan EVER of HTTYD!' I don't want to start a fight, but I'm just saying. Here's my story.
2010. The year of the first HTTYD movie. I was 5 years old. My family took me to see it in theaters. I already knew the rules, no talking, yada yada yada. But when I saw Toothless up there, I legit SCREAMED. My parents asked me what's wrong as I burst into tears. My mom has a recording of this. Here's what I said:
"H-he is my dragon I want that dragon."
My mom and dad laughed and for my birthday that year I got a mini fake-gold statue of Toothless, as well as a poster andd a stuffy. I watched the movie just about everyday and cried every time.
Then the second movie came out. I was so excited I threw up in the car on the way to the theater. I screeched the whole movvie, though everyone kept shushing me, so I sobbed in silence. I loved that dragon. I LOVED him.
Years after that I still watched the movies and all of the series, and I have yet to see toothless and not burst into tears. I don't know why, I just can't control it. He's beatiful and a best friend and a loyal companion.
Through the hardest to years of my life- 6th and 7th grade, through unbearable stress and bullies, I put on my headphones and would listen to the soundtrack. It calmed me.
Then came the third movie. Omigosh I cried evry second. I hugged my favorite build-a-bear toothless and cried into him. The song that got me, that really struck me in the heart, was "As Long as he's Safe" I can't listen to it or see the scene without screaming and crying. Saddest thing EVER.
Now here I am, as I have finally found a place to release my inense love for HTTYD. Seeing so many other fans is incredible, knowing I'm not alone. I can't explain my love for HTTYD. I just can't, because my heart aches for dragons every second of every day.
So there you go. LOL, I'm such a crybaby. My dragon BTW is a titanwing night fury named Esteria, I don't know if you've seen my post but I think it is possible for Night Furies to return. She is a direct descendant of toothless, and she becomes alpha after her father is killed in an accident because the hidden world is collapsing. She must bring HUmans and dragons together again, I'm writing a whole fanfic. ANYWHO again I don't want to fight. What do you say?
(Just so you know, my Alias is Lyra Stellar Haddock.)
That is absolutely fine, I don't want to fight either. I have been exactly the same all my life,but about Stormfly! I'm sorry if my comment sounded aggressive or strange- I've just become very weird about HTTYD recently, and I'm now wondering if maybe you'll understand.
I've adored HTTYD just like you, for as long as I can remember. And before, I was always happy to find other fans and chat and be obsessed about HTTYD together, it was so fun! But then something changed. I started getting jealous of people who talked about how much they loved HTTYD and I got into loads of fights on all the HTTYD sites I used to love. I don't know what came over me. I just became really jealous and possessive over HTTYD, insisting I was the biggest fan and almost daring people to argue. (I have a naturally short temper.)
Anyway, I'm sorry I was being weird, and sorry about this long comment, but it's just that seeing your comment made me think about how stupid I'm being. Maybe we could all be the biggest fans? Or maybe biggest fan shouldn't even be a thing. But anyway, I'm really sorry and thank you for making me think about what I'm actually doing on fandom. because I love HTTYD, just like you, and I'd rather chat about it, deep down, than do what I have been doing.
(Sorry, I've just realised this message is kind of confusing.)
My alias as HTTYD character is Gwendolyn Hofferson the Brave. My dragon is a female Deathsong named Everwild. So maybe we could be friends? :) it would be nice to have a friend on fandom instead of loads of enemies I've made by arguing.
Wow! That would be great! I'd love to be your friend. Funny story actually, my dragon in the fanfic has a 'best friend' that is a deathsong. I haven't named her yet though. I love deathsongs! They are so cool!
And I think it is a great idea to have us all be 'the biggest fans.' I just thought it'd be fun to share my story.
That's so cool! You are great at drawing dragons- I wish I could draw dragons but sadly they look more like birds or something when I try... XD I'd like to get better at it though, because it would be great if I could draw some of my characters! I am writing a Book Of Dragons though- like the one in the films, with a double page on all the information I have about each dragon.
This is so random, but I absoultuely love Death Song's wings! They are so beautiful... What are your favourite dragons? (I mean, obviously Night Fury for you, I'm guessing? :) But other than that)
Oh my goodness I just saw what you wrote on my profile and that is so kind of you! Thank you so much! (Usually I'm used to just making enemies by going around being annoying about that whole "NO ONE ELSE CAN BE A FAN OF HTTYD" thing!)
