2006-08-15 [xido]: This is true. But, it will be complete and effective. ;)
Hopefully I will get my laptop fixed soon enough so that I can begin writing it out... :(

2006-08-31 [Mukki Tadi]: *smiles* do I say it here then? ^^

2006-09-12 [xido]: Yes, indeed.  Thanks for joining. ;)

I added one final comment on the Dragons page before I found this response. Let me know what you think about that, and we may do a session on 'Earth Realm Dragons' in later times, after I have properly done some more work with my core subjects: the biology, culture and magic of dragons.
-will

2006-09-12 [Mukki Tadi]: I think your theory is well said and the 'Earth Realm Dragons' is a fine idea. ^_^

2006-09-16 [xido]: That section may well come in time. I am in real true college classes currently, and I will have to wait until I have a little more time to post the info presented here. Thanks for the comment and any other theories or ideas are always welcome.
-will

2006-09-17 [Mukki Tadi]: You're welcome

2006-11-17 [xido]: This class will consider each student based on his/her attendance, participation, research and storyline creation skills, as defined by [xido], and based on individual work:

2006-11-17 [Mukki Tadi]: cool ^^

2006-11-20 [xido]: Feel free to add your name in if you want. It will keep going, the more I write about what I see in the resources we have available. ;)

2006-11-20 [Mukki Tadi]: Thank you! Should I put my name under students?

2006-11-21 [xido]: Yes, please. I will post degrees as they are measured for each student, and I welcome all input, even if it is just your username on the Student List. ;)

Feel free to add comments or info on the Open Forum Area, or in the comments as you please.
-will

2006-11-21 [Mukki Tadi]: Thank you!

2006-11-22 [xido]: Absolutely, and thank you for posting your own name and degree up there. Excellent work! Just to let you know, because comments can be made in full, with new lines and coding and everything, all contribution posts can be made in the comments field here now instead of on the page. That way, I can edit the page for final content without everybody doing it, and everyone can still make comments openly to the page. I HOPE I just made it so that non-ET people can comment here....
-will

2006-11-22 [Mukki Tadi]: You are welcome. I felt proud to add my name up there. *smiles*
That's wonderful!!! I hope so as well. ^_^ You have an awesome way of working with things! I suppose this comes with being a teacher outside of the internet world? lol. I love the wiki so much!

2006-11-23 [xido]: I'm very glad that you feel that strongly about the class. I do try to make things as good as they can be, and I do try to teach as often as I can, so in that way it does help to teach outside the wiki. ;) I am very glad to have students and contributors to make this as informative of a page as it can be. ;D

2006-11-24 [Mukki Tadi]: ^_^

May I please upload art that has to do with dragons?

2006-11-24 [Mukki Tadi]: Thank you. ^_^ I shall

2006-12-07 [xido]: I have added your Blue Scales. Please refer to my msg to you about why I did not add the Violet Scales.

2006-12-08 [Mukki Tadi]: *nods* I will. thanks! ^_^

2006-12-11 [xido]: I will be able to do more work on these pages between Dec. 17th and Dec. 31, when I am on break from classes.
