2006-06-08 [Miss Moneypenny]: Alright, thanks! I've got a lot of free time to do this... I just had my wisdom teeth pulled today (oy vah!)
2006-06-08 [Sunrose]: Auwie *hugs*
2006-06-08 [Miss Moneypenny]: It's not that bad... the meds keep you doped up (penicillin and Ibuprofen 800's, prescription strenght, woo, go me!), and I'm still numb from my 10 o'clock appointment. I've been trying to scratch my cheek all day, but I can't find where it itches!
2006-06-08 [Sunrose]: Wow, I had one pulled, I just got local anaesthetic O_o
2006-06-08 [Miss Moneypenny]: I got all four pulled (two were laying down sideways...) and they just stuck me with an IV and gave me oxygen. The next thing I remember is trying to push the down elevator button and missing by a mile and a half. The nice lady-dentist then gave me a ride in a wheelchair... it was so cooo!
2006-06-08 [Sunrose]: lol xP
2006-06-13 [Keyurg Kirosake]: what did you mean to little wiki content? ( just asking for future reference! )
2006-06-13 [Sunrose]: It won't be accepted until you put more information into your classroom :)
2006-07-15 [twitchboy]: I am requesting permission to creat a department for the subject of wrestling. Not the fake stuff you see on tv but actual olympic style wrestling. I have pretty thurough experiance in the feild as i am a county champion and voted mvp of the jv team.
2006-07-15 [Sunrose]: Did you check if anything like it exists?
2006-07-15 [Blaithin]: Most of the lessons are still just in the planning stage but I'm slowly getting them all put up :)
2006-07-16 [Sunrose]: It's looking good, but I can only approve it if most of it is done :)
2006-07-16 [Blaithin]: I'll keep posting them then hehe
2006-07-19 [twitchboy]: yes i checked and found nothing.. although theres always the chance i missed something
2006-07-19 [Sunrose]: I suggest you create a classroom and we'll see about some type of 'Sports' department (where Fencing and Martial Arts should be put under then as well)..
2006-08-01 [lady nytmare]: Does canada have a history? I thought it was a recent thing, the whole canada phase? ;) Kidding! Don't hit me canadians! :D Sunny, can I approve teachers for my department without them submitting an official application? Provided they fulfill classroom+wiki content etc requirements?
2006-08-01 [Jeed]: i may not be sunrose, but i know that answer. nope, you cant. all classrooms have to be submitted to the BoG first for a evaluation, then it gets sent to you for approval.
2006-08-05 [Sunrose]: It's preferred that teachers do something before becoming an official teacher. It helps preventing people from getting the badge for free :)
2006-08-29 [mattpoi]: so what should i put an aplication in for first, department or class? i have around 5 subjects which i am willing to write classes on but i dont know what to do first
2006-08-29 [Jeed]: then write up the classes first, sunny will take care of the department
2006-08-29 [mattpoi]: thanks ill get to it
2006-09-30 [Demon Epona]: Hi. I was wondering if I could teach Dragon Script. I can read/write it fluently, and I'd like to share it with willing learners. I don't have a wiki page for a classroom yet because on the other page it said not to make one until your subject is approved. Thanks.
2006-09-30 [Jeed]: dragon script? whosawhat now?
2006-09-30 [Demon Epona]: Yes, dragon script. Hold on, I'll write some letters, then show it to you via message.
2006-10-06 [Blaithin]: It's been sitting there because I've been to busy to add anything new and therefore it can't be accepted because it's not finished :P
2006-10-06 [Sunrose]: And also because I've been busy :)
2006-10-07 [Imperator]: So the class has to be totally finished before you can get it approved?
2006-10-08 [Jeed]: yep
2006-10-08 [Demon Epona]: I'm kinda confused now... Totally finished meaning the class in progress of teaching, or meaning the wiki page where the class is taught, finished and ready for students.
2006-10-08 [Sunrose]: It doesn't have to be totally finished, but there should be substantial content. It should be ready to receive students for the most part.
2006-10-08 [Demon Epona]: Ok. Thank you.
2006-10-08 [Imperator]: Well... My classroom will take... well lets just say it will be an ongoing project. I already have loads of information typed but only like 5-10% is done. What about a situation like this one? Look for yourself: History of World War II and go to "The Start of the War" and "The Western Front".
2006-10-09 [Sunrose]: Try it again when it's 50%+ done :)
2006-10-10 [Imperator]: Okay, thanks!
2006-10-10 [mattpoi]: ok i think i might have enough stuff written down, you get the idea from the pages i have already. theres a department and 5 subjects in there, most have lessons written but i still need to crack onto unicycle and finish the rest
2006-12-21 [Stephen]: Hey Sunny, can I make more gaming related classes? Or, can I create them and then allow someone else to teach them? :)
2006-12-21 [Sunrose]: Sure :)
2006-12-21 [Stephen]: Awesome! Thanks. ^^
2006-12-22 [Demon Epona]: Hey, Stephen; what kinds of gameing?
2006-12-22 [Sunrose]: Best to discuss that in private messages :)
2006-12-22 [Demon Epona]: Oh sorry, Sunrose. -^^-
2006-12-23 [Stephen]: I'm in the process of creating one more class; hopefully that's enough to get a gaming department. I don't really have the time to do more than three classes.. >.>
2007-01-06 [garganeraboy]: i would like to apply for a new department regarding
"Medieval Trade and Commerce"
2007-01-06 [Sunrose]: You will have to submit a classroom.
2007-01-08 [just love me already]: butthead class
2007-01-08 [just love me already]: okay wee
2007-01-15 [Sjach_Darastrix]: I would like to apply for a new department, "Basic and Advanced Magic". I would be teaching people how to become magicians and to do various magic tricks.
2007-01-16 [Jeed]: make a few classes and we will look at them
2007-01-16 [Sjach_Darastrix]: Ok, now how would I go about doing that, I'm new here? Would I submit a classroom template to a person or what?
2007-01-16 [Jeed]: use the classroom template to make your classroom, then submit it under the "new applications" section on this page, and a member of the BoG will review it.
2007-01-16 [Sjach_Darastrix]: Ok thanks for your help.
2007-01-25 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I read in the Literature section that a teacher for Shakespeare's sonnets is still needed. Is that still open? If it is, I'll make a classroom and put some things together.
2007-02-24 [Jeed]: oh well this is delightful...
2007-02-24 [Jeed]: i already reported him, this should be fixed in no time
2007-02-24 [Shadowsoul]: i did ask him if he did it. he said no. he said that it was a feminist friend of his
2007-02-25 [Jeed]: i bet it was.
2007-02-27 [Shadowsoul]: oi! i'm trying to get some fairness here
2007-02-27 [Shadowsoul]: so now there are two sides to the story not just one
2007-03-01 [Imperator]: Many months of typing my classroom when I should be doing homework have come to my submitting History of World War II! Yay! It's 50% finished just as [Sunrose] specified so take a look!
2007-03-10 [efsun_62]: i want to be member of this educational system
2007-03-27 [Thunder Cid]: Ok I'll begin rereviewing it now. :)
2007-04-05 [Thunder Cid]: Oh, I sorry, I need to put that up :D
2007-04-07 [The Luggage!]: With mattpoi;'s permission (i messaged him seperatly) I wouldnt mind becoming a techer on his street performance section. Im really into a poi, currently a moderator on the countruies biggest forum for poiiers. I answer all there questions daily, i see no reason why i cant do it on here too, its not like i have a life at the moment
2007-04-08 [Jeed]: i'de ask his professors permission also, and, run it by the bog page as well...
2007-04-08 [The Luggage!]: He is the professor too. And the bog page :S
2007-04-08 [Jeed]: funny i dont see his name on the list of professors, and i'm sure hes not on the board of govenors(bog), and his classroom hasnt been accepted yet, either.
2007-04-08 [Jeed]: i'de tend to agree
2007-04-10 [The Luggage!]: Meh I cant help it if im a pleb. Someone care to explain?
2007-04-10 [Sunrose]: Not sure what it is you want to do...
2007-04-18 [River Fox]: Can any one tell me how to become a student?
2007-04-18 [Sunrose]: You can just sign in on a class :)
2007-04-22 [Ultiem]: Basic Rifle Marksmanship
2007-06-01 [Dumnorix]: I say, I'e been admitted for quite a while now, and yet I still do not have a classroom, and nothing that tells me that my activity has commenced. Seeing as it's been many, many months since I applied, I must say this surprises me very much!
2007-06-01 [Sunrose]: Your classroom was accepted back in February by [Thunder Cid]. This wiki's only task is to review the classrooms, the appliers can then add their accepted classroom to the department (or in case of pw-protected departments contact the professor).
As for the badge you may be wondering about: The Academy is going to be put through significant changes in which official badges will be replaced by unofficial badges for descriptions.
This decision has been made based on several factors, if you want to know more you can ask me through personal message. It's still in process and only will be announced publically when it is finished :)
2007-06-18 [Sunrose]: [Dumnorix]: for some unknown reason it seems you've blocked me, I tried to send you this:
During the make-over of the Academy I've added your classroom to the Fencing department :)
As the news says, these badges are now available to use freely on your description, if you would like to:
2007-06-19 [The Red Baron]: We Lebanese have a saying concerning our homeland, "Everything and anything can happen in this country."
Apparently, O most exalted Dumnorix, my good friend and comrade-in-arm
I was intent on a first aid class here... I am hereby desisting, whomever wants the information can bust their brains and arses over endless texts on long nights, as I did.
2007-06-19 [Bulma]: did i do that right?
2007-06-19 [Imperator]: lol, you don't have to submit an application to become a student. You just need to contact the teacher of the classroom. But yes you can be a student, I'll add you right now. :-)
2007-06-19 [Sunrose]: For a second I thought someone created yet another classroom on WWII :P
2007-06-19 [Imperator]: Me too! :p I was about to look at it and compare to see if it was better than mine, lol...
2007-06-19 [Sunrose]: I bet you were xD
2007-06-19 [Imperator]: *gasp* A rival! Must add more text and pictures!
2007-06-19 [Sunrose]: Either that or totally give theirs the crackdown, I can imagine you doing the latter :P
2007-06-19 [Imperator]: crack down? as in sabatoge?
2007-06-19 [Sunrose]: No, as in criticise and argue what the wiki states :P
2007-06-19 [Imperator]: lol, yes I might do that if I noticed something was incorrect. I have been rather tempermental in the general debate forum and when I reread my old posts I'm ashamed at what I see. I'm making sure I'm nice now though so hopefully that'll be the end of it. :-)
2007-06-19 [Sunrose]: Aye, that is kind of what I based my comment on :P
I've noticed that though, still vigilante but also pretty helpful!
I don't go to general debate myself though, so I'm not updated :p
2007-06-20 [Imperator]: If you haven't been you should not start. It's a dangerous place full of traps and quick sand.... :p
2007-06-20 [Sunrose]: Hehe thanks for the warning, I'll keep that in mind =P
2007-06-20 [Imperator]: lol :-)
2007-06-21 [Bulma]: I'm sorry about that! I didn't know. I didn't mean to do that LOL :-P
2007-06-21 [Imperator]: It's quite alright. No worries. :)
2007-07-01 [Sunrose]: Very complicated :P
2007-07-02 [Sunrose]: :P
2007-07-02 [Sunrose]: You were asking a question? :P
2007-07-02 [Imperator]: I was wondering if thier application was already accepted and that's why it was under "accepted applications" or if they just stuck it up there not knowing where they were actually supposed to put it...
2007-07-02 [Sunrose]: I'm fast, I already accepted it. But as it confused you, it does seem this page is indeed complicated :P
2007-07-02 [Imperator]: Oh. So I am wrong... You were fast though! :P
2007-07-02 [Sunrose]: =P
2007-07-22 [*mimi*]: is any one interested in a class for gaelic irish?
2007-12-07 [Imperator]: Yay!
2007-12-19 [Jeed]: good call on that sunny, i was going to say something if it was still up in an hour...
2007-12-19 [Ace118]: ah did not know
I have dyslexia dose that stop me teaching???
2007-12-19 [Jeed]: dislexia doesnt explain poor typing
2007-12-19 [Ace118]: I can not spell or type very well so thats why I asked
2007-12-19 [Firenze]: that is what spell checker is for on microsoft word :p
2007-12-19 [Ace118]: cant always use it whn on the net it make my pc act up :(
2007-12-19 [Imperator]: Then type your information in Word then paste it onto Elftown.
2007-12-19 [Sunrose]: If your computer crashes when you use Word and internet at the same time, you can also use the spell checker that comes with Firefox :)
2007-12-19 [Sunrose]: Fix0rd :)
2007-12-19 [Imperator]: Thanks! Bad news however, many of those classes are pieces of junk from 2004 and are password protected as well... Could you open the rest of them?
2007-12-19 [Imperator]: Thanks a lot. :-)
2007-12-20 [Ace118]: thanks I will try it
2007-12-24 [Imperator]: You didn't read any of the rules I told you to read, did you? :-(
2007-12-24 [Watashi]: I did
2007-12-24 [Imperator]: You're supposed to place your application ON this page, not in the comment section and put it in the following format: "Name - Position - Classroom".
Also, when linking to a wiki page you need to have "@wiki" after the name.
2007-12-24 [Watashi]: I fixed it.. ;)
Thanks for the comment though.
2007-12-24 [Imperator]: Perfect, now watch this page and a member of the BoG will review the application.
2007-12-24 [Watashi]: will do ^^
2007-12-24 [Ace118]: oh I see
2008-01-13 [Sunrose]: Eh when reading sarcastic comments my nose suddenly bleeds and I suffer amnesia as to any business that concerns you :D
2008-01-13 [Imperator]: Tissue? It seems you were suffering from amnesia to anything that concerned me even before that comment. :p
2008-01-13 [Sunrose]: Right, because I haven't been spending my time discussing issues with you in a number of wiki's.
Appreciation is not your cup of tea obviously :)
2008-01-13 [Imperator]: Say what?
I don't like tea; it's disgusting...
2008-01-13 [Sunrose]: You seem to suffer amnesia yourself, as you seem not to remember that I have spent my time on answering your comments on various wiki's such as Board of Governors.
I'm not your slave, I spend my time how I please. Your sarcasm on the matter is not appreciated.
2008-01-13 [Imperator]: I know and I appreciate your time as most of my suggestions were poorly thought out anyway.
Oh sunny! I didn't mean it like that! I was just joking around... Don't be angry... :'(
2008-01-13 [Sunrose]: Look I'm glad that you are excited and want to help out, I just don't always have time to do the things you want me to.
The Board is kind of useless in that sense right now. We should probably think of a way that allows more people to more easily become members of the Academy administration
Much like Festivals..
2008-01-13 [Imperator]: So you're talking about a sort of volunteer page where people will put down what they plan on doing which will work under the guidance of the BoG?
2008-01-13 [Sunrose]: More like not having a BoG, but a staff that everyone can join.
2008-01-13 [Imperator]: Oh, I don't like that. I think the Academy is too big to not be under the control of a more official organization. But maybe we should discuss this later when you have the time and patience to deal with me.
2008-01-13 [Sunrose]: If you wish :)
2008-01-14 [Maeve104]: Perhaps it could run on a point system of sorts, with people voting on the classrooms that are accurate? Or more like Wikipedia, where you have to cite sources and people can judge for themselves whether or not the information is legitimate?
2008-01-14 [Imperator]: Trying to make those changes to all the classrooms would be killer. Especially as most are empty and teacherless...
2008-01-14 [Sunrose]: And we're not really trying to be wikipedia-accu
2008-01-14 [Imperator]: Alrighty.
2008-02-06 [Artil Kordiestra]: Can someone help me to make my classroom template?
2008-02-06 [Imperator]: You use the classroom template as a guide to what your classroom should look like. You copy and paste the template's code onto your own wiki page where you edit it. Go to Pseudo html to learn how to link to wiki pages and a whole lot of other cool stuff. Make sure you read the Apply to the Academy page.
2008-02-06 [Artil Kordiestra]: I read it a 1000 times,but i couldn.t find how to make my own page...and this Pseudo html@index is a little confusing,but i think in time i'll menage...thanx for your help
2008-02-06 [Artil Kordiestra]: It will take me about a day or two to wright everything on the page...is it a problem,or do i have to wright it first,for it to be able for u guys to review it???
2008-02-06 [Sunrose]: Yes, you have to write it first :)
2008-02-06 [Imperator]: You just need to ask questions, don't just do things until you understand how to do things correctly.
2008-02-06 [Artil Kordiestra]: I wrote it,but i really need time to upload all of the oics...i will need time...:D
2008-02-06 [Artil Kordiestra]: ok,i will start now...
2008-02-06 [Imperator]: Adda' boy. :p
2008-02-07 [Artil Kordiestra]: My classroom is ready to start with work...please review it and tell me if something missing,should i change anything
2008-02-07 [Imperator]: Wow, that was quick. Unfortunatly the review process will take a little while longer. Watch this page and I'll send you a message about any needed changes. :-)
2008-02-07 [Artil Kordiestra]: Ok...as long as u need...
2008-02-07 [Artil Kordiestra]: AAAAAAAAAA....
2008-02-08 [Imperator]: I hope that was a joke because it's been one day. :p
2008-02-08 [Artil Kordiestra]: and how long it takes?????????
2008-02-08 [Imperator]: Well I need to read your entire classroom and make corrections so give me a few days here. Actually, you're lucky you have me because I've waited for weeks in the past for someone to even pick up my classrooms. This is really fast in comparison.
2008-02-08 [Artil Kordiestra]: ok...and if the application is accepted,what next???
2008-02-12 [Imperator]: [Jayy Will Murder], I appreciate your application but you need to submit a wiki page with information on the subject you would like to teach. You make the classroom and then we review it to see if it becomes official. :-)
2008-07-25 [Flisky]: I added my application, so there you are.
2008-10-05 [Flisky]: I'm sorry it's taking so long...my computer ATE my files...(actually, it was my flash drive...)
2008-10-05 [Imperator]: Oh dear... 0.0; Nah, it's okay. Just send me a message when it's all done.
2009-03-20 [Flisky]: Sorry. It's not finished yet...I was hoping to get more sections done first.
2009-03-20 [Thunder Cid]: Oh...never mind then, I'll shut up now. Proceed.
2009-03-21 [Imperator]: Yeah! Shut up! XD
2009-03-22 [Thunder Cid]: Watch yourself grasshopper.
2009-03-24 [Imperator]: *jumps away*
2009-03-28 [mimzy]: ay i want a badge an i want to lern chinese where can i aply
2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Is a councling class wanted? Kind of like a stress relive, in home therepy kind of things open to the floor for Q & A? I am super good at that type of thing.
2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: I have already checked. There isn't ^^
2009-04-10 [Imperator]: Well then I would strongly encourage you to start one. We need all the help we can get. :-)
2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: I am working on an official contest right now and once it goes through, I will give my class some thought.
2009-04-10 [Imperator]: Excellent. :D
2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Yep ^^
2009-06-04 [lraina]: Oh wow this looks awesome
I am a history education major
and I think it would be fun to teach a class on here :D
2009-06-05 [Thunder Cid]: Just fill out a classroom template and submit it for review ;)
2009-10-12 [Eyden13]: I was just wondering how the transition was going.
2009-10-14 [Imperator]: I have had no luck getting the old classroom unlocked yet but I'll keep trying. Once you have say, one or two more sections of your classroom done, then we'll just use yours instead and get rid of the old one if I can't unlock it before then. Sound good?
2009-10-14 [Eyden13]: Yup. ^-^
2010-10-17 [Jeed]: fill out an application, of course! since you'de be picking it up, just write a short resume-styled wiki on your qualifications and we can go from there
2010-10-18 [*Phoenix*]: Okay. I don't think I'll do it right now, because of school and other things going on, but I'll keep it in mind.
2011-04-15 [Jeed]: Just sent you a message with that answer.
