2011-04-15 [Nioniel]: Cute list, Akay. <3

2011-04-15 [Linderel]: Before when? I only noticed the feature yesterday.

2011-04-15 [SilverFire]: I expected you to object a week in advance, duh. :P Yesterday - when you noticed it was featured? Instead of waiting for us to ask you if you wanted it changed? <_< 

2011-04-15 [Chimes]: Akaaay<3 ^^

2011-04-15 [Linderel]: I'll just use the concussion I suffered on Wednesday as my defence here. :3 Plus I just assumed that, having this wiki on watch, you'd notice soon enough. I was also wondering why no one checked whether it actually was open for all. xD

2011-04-15 [iippo]: It's really too bad that it isn't open, it'd be a really cool wiki if it were :) It's a nice idea anyhoo.

2011-04-15 [SilverFire]: I think we all assumed it was, having seen it linked in other public places and all (and I think that's a pretty reasonable assumption <_< 'oh hey, this link is being pasted around on other public pages, it's probably public too').

2011-04-15 [Akayume]: I have such simple wishes. (:

2011-04-15 [Linderel]: It originally was public. Then I had a change of heart. I just don't recall posting it on other public pages, myself... hmm. *shrug* I might re-think again, fickle as I am.

2011-04-15 [SilverFire]: You mercurial being, you. :O

2011-04-15 [Linderel]: I am so bad. :(

2011-04-15 [Akayume]: Tsk tsk. :P

2011-05-12 [Mortified Penguin]: Ah, what? I can't even add that I want to kill a unicorn before I die? Screw this. *kicks [Akayume]'s shins*

2011-05-12 [Akayume]: Whai me? :(

2011-05-18 [Akayume]: Why did you take yours away? :(

2011-07-17 [Akayume]: I'm excited to cross some of these off. :D

2011-07-31 [Nioniel]: I'll be able to cross one of these off, tomorrow! :)

2011-07-31 [Akayume]: YAY!

2011-08-06 [Nioniel]: ^^

2011-09-22 [Nioniel]: Woo! I got to cross another one off! :D

2012-07-21 [Nioniel]: ;) I may be mostly absent from here, but I'm glad that I'm at least able to strike out another bucket list goal of mine despite how busy I've been!
