Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

 

No, never happened...ever. Focusing on April Fool's Day & Easter does eliminate any 15th of the month questions; SO fire away with the Foolery & Bunny stuff.

Nope.  Not once.  I saw some great RickRolls, immediately identified them, and smiled as others fell for the trap.

Arise, ye prisnoers of starvation!

Arise, ye wretched of the Earth!

 

D: none of the above. Being a tyrant/autocrat is not one of those things I have ever considered becoming.

I think we, humanity that is, would do quite well without the scum that aspire to such positions.

I would be a Dictator for exactly 5 minutes, then open the gates and yell:

 

You're freeeeeeeee!!

Honestly, I would rather be the guy behind the scenes, but if forced to choose between these two (I personally don't see much difference between the last three, realizing of course that dictator comes with a sense of "not good", but that's a different issue) I guess I would choose Pope and try to use my influence to steer people toward being better. I think it can be a lot easier to use faith to change people's beliefs, perspectives, etc., than legislation or decrees.

Just the opposite.  Anything but Pope.  The Church of the true popes did away with that title.  But if I say too much it will get sent to Beekeeper's

I don't know that I'm well-equipped for any of those positions.

High King implies that your planet has lesser kings. 

 

Dictator implies that your position is not necessarily hereditary. 

 

Emperor kindof assumes an Empire, and perhaps an army of robot minions or something. 

 

Also, Empress, & High Queen, are options... ...I think Dictator is gender neutral (Dictatress ?:unsure:

I'd go for something more grandiose like, The Supreme Being or The All-Powerful One.

 

But if I have to choose from the options provided I'll be an Emperor.

Given that it's my planet...  Guardian/Protector. ^_^

 

Treehouses galore! .... And ancient trees of course. 

 

My planet also implies it wouldn't have all that many people on it... At least in my chunk of it all.

These all seem like rather hard work.

 

I'd happily settle for Billionaire Playboy. (And with that much money, no one will make smartass comments about the last syllable.)

Completely understand, and I too was trying to be careful to avoid sending the discussion elsewhere.

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I was reading them all as "The Ultimate Political Authority". Obviously though there are good monarchs/emperors and bad ones, etc., and the title of dictator does tend to imply some nastiness, so I certainly wasn't trying to imply that they are all the same in outlook, etc.

      Welcome to Getting to Know you, September 2018 Edition.
       
      Here are the roolz, copied directly from @Crowley's post from last month
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.
