I AM NOT A SUPPORTER OF THIS SITE, BECAUSE I THINK ITS NOT WORTH THE MONEY TO GIVE MY COMMENTS. COMMENTS +SHOULD BE FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
from James B., age 17, Greenwod, Delaware, ?; January 14, 2002

Wow. I normally don't respond to comments like this, but this one just begs for an answer.

How could you possibly think that you have the right to make someone else work for your benefit? How do you think these posts get online? A person (namely me) spends many hours each day downloading mail, reading it, censoring it (when necessary), adding to html files, uploading files, checking them, and archiving them. And then, at the end of the month, I get a bill for thousands of dollars for the bandwith used to send the site out to people (like you) on the Internet. I pay for the site myself, with some help from advertisers and site supporters (and I do not get paid for my work).

You certainly have the right to your opinions (however naive they may be), and the right to do the work to create your own website in order to publish them. But I have neither an obligation to work for you, nor a desire to pay to publish your comments.

Ask yourself these questions: How much work would YOU be willing to do to publish my comments? And how much of your own money would YOU be willing to spend to publish my comments?

Also, have you demanded free service from your ISP so that you can voice your opinions online freely? (My guess is that you didn't send AOL a letter like the one you sent me - your parents probably just sent them their monthly payment as usual.) JC


The Pliensbacian was in the Lias epoch, therefor in the Jurassic period! Not the Triassic! The pliensbachian began about 195 million years ago, and ended 186 mya, so I don't see how it could be in the Triassic. You probably meant to say "Jurassic" but you were typing to fast or something.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002


More trivia, the last I'll be doing in a while:
1)Where have specimens of Coeluroides largus been found?
2)Who first described Aublysodon?
3) True or false: Edward Cope described each and every species of Diclonius.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002


"also, there was no picture attached. Was there meant to be no picture?"

It just said that you had to put "dinopicture" in the subject box. Are you meant to put something different for fiction JC? And BTW, I don't have a digital camera or scanner, so I couldn't post a picture even if I wnated to.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002
No, it's fine. JC


I don't think anybody is posting because school(except for Tom G.). I barely have any time to come here too. I usually come in the morning(like now).
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002


"Ah, I hate math!!!"

So do I! I try to sleep through it, until some ill - mannered punk wakes me up.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002


"Since T-master is back I think I'll do some trivia now:
When did Lufengosaurus live:
a.Pliensbachian
b.Oxfordian
c.Campanian"
The pleinsbachian! It's the obvious choice, since it's the only triassic stage you gave as a choice! Good one! Thanks!

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002


YAY! WELCOME BACK, T - MASTER.

"Here's a little dino math trivia

1. If you rounded pteranadon's wingspan to the nearest ten, about how many feet would you have if you lined up three ptheranadons?
60 FEET. BUT WE DO METERS AND CENTIMETERS NOW IN BRITAIN, SO I'M NO GOOD AT FEET ETC.
2. Carcharodontosaurus means

A. Great White Shark toothed Lizard <-- IT'S THIS ONE

B. Giant Southern Lizard

C. Savage Lizard

3. Beipiaosaurus was related to

A. Baryonx

B.Therizinosaurus <-- THIS ONE! I KNOW MY THERIZINOSAURS!

C. Shuvuuia

Good Luck"
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 14, 2002


When did Lufengosaurus live:

I think that would be
A.Pliensbachian

That was good trivia.
from T-master, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


"Pachycephalosaurus=Troodon"
No, I think what the person who wrote this was trying to say was that when the first Pachy specimens were discovered, they were thougth to be Troodon fossils. But I don't know if this is true, so we might as well forget about it.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


Since T-master is back I think I'll do some trivia now:

a.Pliensbachian
b.Oxfordian
c.Campanian

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


Welcome back T-master!
2 = A
3 = B

As for the first one, it depends. I you lined up three Pteranodon behind one another, wingspan wouldn't matter. But if you lined them up side by side, probably about 30 ft.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


Pachycephalosaurus=Troodon?

Wierd!!!
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


Ah, I hate math!!!

But I can answer the 2nd one...A.

I just read that Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis was originally thought to be Troodon formosus! I wonder if that's true. Has anyone else heard this?

Thats strange, I've never heard that. Where did you read this?
from T-master, age ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


Uh, JC, if it isn't too much trouble, you mind putting the first part of my torvosaur thing back up please?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002
It's up now.


"but it's sad to think that the government thinks that Dinosaurs are only for people who fail..."
Wow, that's unfortunate. Here I think you have to ace the basic science courses to get to others like Paleontology and Astronomy."

Yeah, it's unfortunate. So despite the richness of Britain's fossil deposits, (I'm not comparing it to certain... American sites by the way, you know what I mean,) most of the paleontology work here is done by amatuers.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


"I just read that Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis was originally thought to be Troodon formosus! I wonder if that's true. Has anyone else heard this?"

What? Now that is really strange. Nope. Never heard of it.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002


JC, did you get my story thing? I sent it like an E-mail, with "dinopicture" in the subject box. Next part of the torvosaur thing.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 13, 2002
You didn't sign it, so I wrote you e-mail about it. It's up now. JC

Wow, there weren't many posts today!

"I'm back! So you're 12 Tom G. So that woulld make you in 7th grade.(I think.) Do you take science classes other than Biology and and Chemistry? Because I never did in 7th grade."

Its kind of different here. Last year was my last year of primary school. In primary school we have one teacher to teach us everything ( i think it might be the same in primary school in america) and the grades are (from youngest to biggest) J1 J2 standard3 standard4 standard5 standard6 Form1 form2 (I was in form 2 last year). I'll be starting High School this year after the summer holidays and it goes in forms up to form7 which is the highest. In the first year of high school we only get to choose 1 full year course or 2 half year course. And there is only one science subject in the first year and thats like a bit of everything and you have to do science. but I think in form 5 or form 4 i'll get to choose different kinds of science like biology and chemistry. I don't know what i''ll do when I can choose which.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 12, 2002


"I only got Biology, Chemistry, and Physics..."
Yeah, in what we call 7th grade, we also only got Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 12, 2002


OK Tom, next chapter coming up.

What do you think of it guys and girls?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 12, 2002


"da masta-13-14"

14 since october 29th...
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 12, 2002


I'm never going to do dinosaurs in school, because only people in comprehensive schools with bad grades get taught about dinosaurs. I'd know everything there already, (as would anyone at this site,) but it's sad to think that the government thinks that dinosaurs are only for people who fail in everything else.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 12, 2002


"I'm back! So you're 12 Tom G. So that woulld make you in 7th grade.(I think.) Do you take science classes other than Biology and and Chemistry? Because I never did in 7th grade."

I only got Biology, Chemistry and Physics when I was in... well, it's year eight, don't know what it would be in the USA, or NZ. Earlier we just had this "combined science" thing. And it was real easy.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 12, 2002


"and you should do some more on your Torvosaurus story."

Yes, you're right Tom, I've wanted to, but never really got round to it. I'm lazy when it comes to writing stories, or doing something creative.

A good example of this is the DWCW which never even got posted, not even the first episode! (Those other things wheren't it, I just made it so that the same arena was used.) But I'll try.
