View Full Version : Suggestion: Claim your own mythical creature thread?

September 18th, 2010, 10:29 AM
I was wondering, would it be a good idea make a Claim your own Mythical Creature thread? (CYOMC) I know it doesn't sound good, but I just want to make a thread where people can come to look at different kinds of mythical creatures and I can put some info about all the mythical creatures that I put up on it. It can be like a mini library. But, I'll leave it at that so my inner cryptozoological self doesn't take over. Anybody think it'll be a good idea?

That would be a fun idea :3 I'd so claim the gryphon. Maybe you could make a thread in Other Groups? (or whatever that section is called) As there it would be like a club for people who like mythological creatures.

I mean a claim thread, not a group tho. :3

Possibly, but isn't it just looking for claims really? I don't know, it could be fun, but I think it could be better left out. We have lots of claim threads already. I think it my be overdoing it to have another.

Yeah, I think that is a good idea, but I don't have the time to be incharge of my thread.

I coulda sworn this would be something only Jolene could suggest...

Well, if this came to be, I'd probably claim a bloody dragon or something. But would there really be much to come of a claim thread like this?

I do think you can make that kind of thread. I seem to recall having the Word Claim thread where you claim words. Although, I also seem to recall having an approval of a mod for that. Though this is a good idea. I claim Leviathan and the Kraken!

It'd be a fine thread to make in my opinion, but people would have to start getting obscure once all the good names were taken. I'd claim the Ech-Ushkya, because, A. very few people know about it, and B. I like it.

I don't like the idea of making an official claim thread for mythical creatures. I know if it were put to a vote to make it something you can put on your profile with all the other claims, I wouldn't vote for it. I don't have any reason other than PC just doesn't seem like the place where that kind of claiming should really be done.

Claiming general entertainment things like celebrities, music, movies, anime, TV shows, etc. is one thing since this is, in the big picture, an entertainment oriented community, but claiming other things like countries (we had one of those before), and mythical creatures doesn't seem all that appropriate.

If you want to have a thread where people can look at the kinds of mythical creatures, post information about them as well as discuss them, then I don't see anything wrong with creating a discussion thread in Other Chat. Besides, if you wanted a place for them to put information about them, a claims thread isn't the place to do it.

I'd rather claim gods, personally.

I see little point, I mean, if we make a claim thread for this, why not a claim thread foooor, action figures? Or Barbies? People would just want more and different claim threads. You can make your own, non-official one, and I think that it would suffice.

I kinda like this idea. But don't see it it working well once all the good names were taken (as previously stated)
I would claim the Crusnik / Krusnik

I don't sees no problems with that.

Actually, we already have one (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=200078)

I haven't read any of the posts here accept the first one, I'm in a bit of a rush thanks to my stupid hw, but I'm sure at least one person has mentioned what I'm about to say.

I'm against this idea, because it seems like we're just nitpicking for ideas on what to claim. Why not make a thread for claiming TV shows, toys, or I dunno what else. Because, IMO, it's pointless. If you really wanna claim something like that, say it in your Biography or something.

That would be the Pokemon Claim thread. Digi was making a joke, which is why his post was struck out like that.

There's still no need for it. For the claim threads that we do have, those make sense because they're something that the majority of people have an interest in. Pokemon, celebrities, songs, anime/manga/game pairings... There's fun with those because they're something that pretty much everyone has an interest in (even if said interest doesn't extend to claiming them, people still talk about them). With mythical creatures, how many people actually do know more than the common ones? There's not a big draw for the claim thread to be made. (I haven't even seen any discussion threads/user groups/fan clubs about mythical creatures.)

i think there is tv shows not sure. i dont claim, i dont get it.
None for TV shows currently. There's: Pokemon, song, celebrity, and bishies. There used to be a thread for claiming a "series", which is why there's a space for it on the profile page, but in looking over both Other Entertainment and Japanese Entertainment (and even Video Gaming) I couldn't see it.

And claiming is just something that people do for fun on here to show their devotion to their favorite things.

But for mythical creatures, I don't see much interest for it, so... Like I said, though, you could have fun with it still and create a user group/club to gather other mythical creatures fans and pretend to claim creatures. It won't be officially added to the profile page, but you could still do it that way.

It's been down for a while. If Davick doesn't start it up, i'll probably end up starting it up again.

I say the Pokemon claim is close enough because a lot of Pokemon are based off Mythology anyways.

If you want to show your devotion for a mythical creature, just make a club or group about it. If you want something in your profile, just put it in your bio.

I would totally start the claiming (:

Jabberwocky, here I come!

I think this is a good idea.
