    Daniel Sighting Thread

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by A.M.P., Feb 17, 2016.

    The WritingForums.org Daniel is a rare and timid creature.
    It appears a handful of times throughout the year to see the growth of his legacy before disappearing back into the shadows of the World Wide Web.
    Perhaps one of a kind, the Daniel is praised and loved by all of those in the WritingForums.org and fills them with purpose and belonging upon taking in his sight.

    This is a thread that records such rare sightings.
    Perhaps through careful observation, we can know his purpose and pattern of appearances.

    Daniel sighted today at 9:12pm MCT.

    I think we have a better chance of spotting bigfoot.

    He's the reason this site existed at all, and continues to exist.

    He's the chief. Back in the old days this website was very authoritarian: a chief and also an enforcer, I won't name him or her, but @Otigoc thumped squeaks who swore and such, kind of techno-viking but East Coast liberal viking. Then there was a mystical witch lady - dispensed hillbilly from the backwoods, collected young people for her cauldron. She is dead now, still many blades were lost to her flames, an editor, I believe. The old tribe are still remaining hereabouts in pockets so tread carefully if you want to survive, and don't quote me, ever.

    Apparently, during a kind of bong or revelation in Peru, Arthur/Daniel [pseudonym] turned flap liberal [repetition], dropped the bumper stickers, fired @Ogitoc - he now moderates a scalextric forum. It's all in the site history section if you check.

    Another sighting after a terrible blackout outside.
    Could this elusive creature only make its way outside when the WF Lands go dark?

    I'm so giddy I can't stop laughing!

    Wow! Daniel sighting? I checked this out because I wondered if it had something to do with Old Testament prophets!

    Well done Oscar. It's only recently that I've become active on the site but I've been around a while (eight years, on and off), lurking and reading. Sheriff Cogito ruled the roost back then and he didn't take any prisoners. I gotta lot of respect for him.

    And he doesn't now? Who exactly is in charge? I've never really understood that. Wreybies maybe?

    So Wrey then? He seems to have the most important sounding title, as I thought.

    Your guess is as good as mine. If I'm ever summoned to the sheriff's office I'll let you know.

    Where cushions are comfy, and straps hold firm.
    I saw him once, but that was last month.

    An exhaustive late day made me remain awake throughout the night.
    It was only then, when the night was at its blackest, that I saw the elusive Daniel.
    Perhaps a new sleep schedule is required to track this mythical man.

    So you didn't expect him? Hmm he appears when we don't expect him... Are we sure he's really from Illinois? He seems rather... Spanish. :p:p
