Ever wonder what happens when a community of gifted writers comes together to create a world so detail rich, so believable in its integration?  Well, it becomes real.  People all over the world believe that this fine disk of ours actually exists in the world.

Some example;

TBIM Sun Oil Trading- apparently they get their Sunflower Oil from Caelereth.  If you look at their other oils, they are apparently marketed on real world facts.

Ask.com has the #1 answer to What is a Leveret, as an animal found in Northern Sarvonia

Field Mice have a territory all over the moderate areas of Caelereth

Sunflower again Caelereth must be a province in Bangladesh, as the Flowers of Bangladesh clearly references the Sunflower as growing there.

Pet Krakens preferably the Caelereth ones, I assume

Imps Where did they go?  That is one of the Unsolved Mysteries of our time.

Sunflower appears to be a favourite

I just thought it was cool that soe people are imbedding this world into the Real World and blurring the lines between the two.  I'm sure there are probably hundreds of examples if one looked.  This was just a few minutes looking because I was bored. :)

lol Yeah, these are some quite funny examples - especially the Oil Company that references what elves do with their oil sounds a bit off, eh? But in general people tend to believe everything they find on the internet, just like the guy who once sent an e-mail concerning the invention of the waterwheel where we also have an entry on site. At least that one found an e-mail address, but still wasn't sure about those wars mentioned in the entry, so he had to ask... cool

P.S. Didn't see the Santharian reference in the last entry though, but it's all rather refreshing to see that we at least manage to confuse people so that they take it all for real... ;)

The last one has a Description box on the right hand side of the page.  It uses the same passages that the Bangladesh site uses, word for word, that are lifted from the entry. :)

That's really amazing! I recall somebody, who asked how to care for field mice...

Thanks for the links, Alt!

I couldn't resist poking around a bit on the website with the field mouse report. It's a collaboration by fifth graders, so the field mouse entry is just a fifth grader copying her entire report from the Internet. :D

I still recall the desperate plea straight to my mailbox from a woman who really wanted to know where I had found the mermaid I dissected... in real life...

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
