You inspired me for the most recent Aurora News article: Keeping a fedo as pet

I would enjoy using your image in the article if you don’t mind it (reference & credit will be included!)

Of course I agree. :smiley:
Actually, I can even provide enhanced image.

Still waiting for you to back up these claims with any citations of publication in actual, peer-reviewed, scientific journals, rather than just ‘I was given a prize in a writing contest by other capsuleers’.

Maybe you should remove your head from your back end, bite that forked tongue of yours and perhaps crawl back to whatever someplace horrible you were raised in until you learn to have some decorum.

As expected. The ‘academic’ can’t engage in one of the basic tasks of academia: defending your claims.

Go to Eram, visit Site One, and approach the dingus labelled “Project Theseus”. And you will see that it is my name that appears top of the list.

So… how do you like them lemons?

That doesn’t sound like a peer-reviewed journal, sweetums.

A bunch of people together working on that particular project mapped off The Labyrinth in Aphi. That’s not archaeology, that’s called cartography. The project page doesn’t say what exactly was your contribution to the project, it only lists you as project lead and archivist.

If you partook in the mapping and searching the area for Takmahl artefacts yourself, then you have some merit in your claim, but the project page lists its main contributors as "The Project received great help and useful contributions from the following: Aedeal, Horatius Caul, Calen Davrissus, Kathryn Dougans, Myyona, Katy Moore, Gosakumori Noh. " Interestingly, your name is not on that list, when everyone else who participated in the project is.

So, were you just the overseer or an active participant?

While Arrendis can be a dick, she has a point; These were published independently by Dr. Hilen Tukoss as part of the Arek’Jaalan -project, and have not been peer-reviewed but by perhaps a handful of other Arek’jaalan participants. Some of whom are possibly established scientists and researchers, like late Mr. Tukoss himself. I don’t honestly know.

But whatever, hey as long as you can tell other people to eat lemons, who cares for scientific credibility.

You did look at who wrote the page, right ?

It is a bit Blowing your own Trumpet to write that you contributed greatly to your Own project, no ?

Yes, it is written by herself.

Well, not really. Project lead and archivist means generally management side of things, and if everyone else did most or all of the legwork, I wouldn’t be calling myself a “renowned archaelogist.” Valerie being Valerie, well…

Actually, ‘Project lead and archivist’ could mean simply ‘wrote down everyone else’s work’, but I really didn’t wanna harp on that. After all, she’s pulling an appeal to CONCORD’s memorials as an authoritative source.

CONCORD, who put up a monument to 70 capsuleers in a place where two million people died. Two million died, but let’s memorialize the 70 assholes that killed them all and then walked away in new clones. Why? Because CONCORD will fete anything capsuleers do in order to keep us in our place. Put up a few automated freight platforms? Sure, it’s a minor expense, by comparison to what we could cost them.

After eight years as an egger, with data streams literally installed in her brain, you’d think she could at least remember the name of one journal she’s been published in.

How about I prove I’m an academic when you prove you’re not a dime a dozen pedant with nothing original or constructive to say?

Sure, that sounds fair. After all, it’s not like I haven’t explicitly claimed to be a pedan-oh, wait.

Edit: I mean, one of us is claiming to be literally one of the most accomplished academics in the cluster. The other claims to be a snarky pedant who’s explicitly said time and again that she’s no better than anyone else. These two claims are totally equivalent, right?
