EDITED: This thread has been reappropriated by me to serve as Asa's Dubbing Thread.


RULES (very important, please read)

FIRST AND FOREMOST: Dubbing is not practiced under Lady Yates's name. All responsibility belongs to me alone, and all comments and complaints should be directed at me.

I give Dubs. These Dubs are nicknames of your nickname, which are generally used by the general populace of the Earthsong Forum.

You don't have to ask for a Dub. These are my personal Welcome for newcomers, and officialize the process that happens anyway, i.e., getting nicknamed.

If you do ask for a Dub, you get what I give you. No take-backs, no changes of mind, no re-dubbing. If you don't want one, don't ask for one.

If you want a Dub, ask for it in this thread. I won't acknowledge requests elsewhere in the Forum, lest it's not a serious request.

Once you have a Dub, if you've asked for one, you should put the Dub and the Asa-logic in your signature, so people know what to call you.

Asa-logic can sometimes be a misnomer, and simply refers to my train-of-thought when choosing your Dub. Some, like Fish's, aren't logical (Wren=Fish). Some, like Tam's, are (Tamir=Tam). I used to make people guess the Asa-logic, but I had some bad experiences with that and stopped.

If your name is already three letters long or shorter (like mine, and Nem's) then you don't get a Dub even if you ask.


So to summarize:

Don't ask if you don't want.
Put the Dub in your sig.



Um. Yes. That's about it. Hm. Verbose, much?

The introduction forum is set to auto-prune posts that haven't had a response in a certain amount of time, which unfortunately includes the Dubbing thread. At least, this is my understanding of it.

The only options I see to keep it from doing that are one of the following:
1) Turn off the auto-pruning option, and have the mods hand-delete posts older than a certain period of time. This would be somewhat time consuming.
2) Have The Lady start your Dubbing thread as an Announcement, which wouldn't get pruned TMK.

Edit:
It appears there's a third option. From what I'm seeing, polls that are not set to close don't get pruned. So, as long as the poll in the original thread hasn't closed yet, the thread (apparently) remains open.

You could start a Dubbing thread with a simple poll like "Would you like a Dub?" Yes/No, then go from there.

Hope this helped!

I guess... I'm sort of miffed that I lost all the dubs I had before, but if your tips turn out to be right, I'll do that.

ICHIGOLI, I HEREBY DUB THEE EECHI, SO MOTE IT BE!

After the character in that children's story, of the boy named Ichi, whose two older sisters mispronounced his name, and one of them would screech "EECHI!"

hee hee.


But for purposes of your signature line, you just put the following:

Dubbed Eechi by Asa
Ichigoli = Ichi = Eechi



Welcome to the forum! Enjoy your stay!

requesting a re-dub...

I know it's in the rules and not that I don't love my dub but i just stumbled across this:
The 'H' used in the name may also mean ‘erotic' in Japanese ('H' is pronounced “eechi” = erotic)

... yeah... i hope this qualifies for an exception......

if it's not too much trouble i'd rather nip this in the bud before someone stumbles across it , knows what it means/looks like and thinks i/you/we are awkward...

sorry... i know you weren't thinking of that when you dubbed me ^_^;

so awkward... eh heh heh...

I formally and overly wordy request a measure of your time, so that you can create for me a Dub

Oh G-d, someone who's proud of their spelling mistakes. *shudder*

I'll try to see past that...


SPELLINGMISTAX, I HEREBY DUB THEE ANTHRAX, SO MOTE IT BE!


Spellingmistax = mistax = ax = anthrax

hee hee.

Enjoy, and Welcome to the Forum! Remember to put the following into your signature:

dubbed Anthrax by Asa
Spellingmistax = mistax = ax = anthrax



Ichigoli: I did think of that when I was posting it, and to be honest I hoped you wouldn't notice... The transliterated word in English is most commonly spelled ecchi, while your Dub will be spelled Eechi. No one on this forum is going to associate you with adult entertainment just based on that (of if they do, they'll be too polite to say anything), but yes, I'll make an exception and redub you.

Ichigoli, I hereby redub thee as Eerie, so mote it be!
