I wish I knew. I bought this character from a Russian guy on the bazzar some time ago. Bet that's not uncommon in EVE.

I wanted something that sounded light and happy, so "Gaellia" and for the last name I wanted something that evoked adventure.

Thus, the slave-whipping, shoe-buying, ship-spinning, ego-driven mess Gaellia Bonaventure was born.

Bring your possibles.

A silhouette is an outline, a false representation of that which casts the shadow. Project could be the verb that represents the act of the silhouette being painted on a surface. Or it's the noun 'project' which represents a task to achieve a goal.

Or maybe it's the gin talking.

Halo. I'm a really big Halo fan and my name here folllows the naming conventions of the Sanghelli (Elites for you casual gamers). The correct form should be Hona' Chaginai but I choose just to leave the apostrophe out. The rest is a combination of my first, middle, and last name and the "ai" means master swordsman.

Please be advise that spamming the forum to get your name to show as last poster on every thread in the first index page, might have consequences.
Please refrain from doing so in the future as this can be quite detrimental to the state and well being of the forum, especially if more people start doing it as some form of competition.

Do you even realize that you are breaking the forum rules?
Or are you immune to them?

Solecist Project, I am making this off-topic post to explain something to you about off-topic posting, what is permitted, and what is not. I won't make ISD Ezwal post this snippet from the rules:
26. Off-topic posting is prohibited.

Off-topic posting is permitted within reason, as sometimes a single comment may color or lighten the tone of discussion. However, excessive posting of off-topic remarks in an attempt to derail a thread may result in the thread being locked, or a forum warning being issued.


When you make a post related to another post in the thread yet not related to the thread's topic, it's fine as long as the branch topic doesn't go very far before returning to the thread topic. This is different from making a post lacking content just to get your face in on the chatting. I looked through the posts you made which "Project Dominance" warned you about--hope you don't mind the minor invasion of privacy. While some of those posts would have been fine by themselves, posting several like that at once really makes it look like you're just posting to post, and that activity is prohibited.

Sometimes I feel the need to post for posting's sake. In those cases, I find something to say in response to the topic, even something simple, that at least furthers the discussion a little. Also, I try to limit that activity because the real purpose for posting here in Out of Pod Experience is to have fun talking about things. You can make individual threads in which the topic is just spamming, if you wanted. Threads like 'The Like and Get Likes Thread' and 'The Off-topic Thread' have a unique topic that allows for posts not normally allowed.

ISD Ezwal is bound by the forum rules just like we are, though they apply a bit different for him being within the Interstellar Services Department. But he was not spamming the forums because each post he made in response to yours may have had the same wording but they were all addressed to your individual posts. At no point in time did he post them in excess. Also, I would suggest you try to avoid speaking negatively of representatives appointed by CCP:

4. Personal attacks are prohibited.

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts that are designed to personally berate or insult another forum user. Posts of this nature are not beneficial to the community spirit that CCP promote and as such they will not be tolerated.


Furthermore, CCP Devs can permanently ban you from the forums or even ban your account from the game for making any personal attack on any member of CCP, and I believe this extends somewhat even to GMs and ISD. If you wish to discuss ISD Ezwal as a topic, that is fine--just make sure you do so in a civilized and non-condescending manner.

For anyone who is curious, my first post in this thread is #29 on page 2, and ISD Ezwal's first post in this thread is #16 on page 1.

Wow, no wonder you linked your post to me, Reaver. Totally understandable.
Who wouldn't be pissed if the one it's addressed at doesn't read it.


I didn't read it.


Oh my, imagine Silhouette had shown up earlier.

I'm not even doing this the first time, but the last time was ... timed ... -.- ... much better.
The gimmick is stupid, but shot in my name so I wrote it. (:


Anyhow, you attentionwhoring here with this ... well ... if you think so, that's okay. (:



Now we're both off-topic and I conclude my offtopic-ness hereby,
but thought I'll reply to your post, so you feel better. :)


I glanzed over it. (:

Until then, I will let you come with some guess as to where and how...

The names actually are all current Empire Faction names.
I didn't include the Jovian or other backstories names in them yet.

But that was not a fair guess, so I can't give more details.

Well how can anyone guess their origins if we don't even know what the names are?
