Hi everyone! I am a new dragon member.

Are there "real" time machines?

Yes, they are called "clocks".

Hi there -

Leon was just joking with you, but may I point something out.

Although it's a very nice compliment to Drago to make your name like his, and I'm sure he is very flattered, practically speaking you could find yourself in a bit of a mess and confusion.

The average person is quite likely not to see there's no 's' in the name and will think they are speaking to Drago. Thus they will make jokes, and refer to things you aren't familiar with, or they will think Drago himself is making fun of them.

This is just a suggestion, of course, you're entitled to use whatever avatar you like. I just think, by copying even the symbol in Drago's avatar, you will find yourself in a lot of confusion - and so will Drago. Perhaps, if you don't want to change it you could put a number after it: like a '2' or something so it's easier for people to know exactly who they are talking to?

Anyway, welcome to the forum. I'm sure that, like the rest of us, you'll learn a lot here!

If they have more than one account active at the same time and they are caught, then they will be banned.

It's time for the traditional off-topic banter now that the OP has been satisfactorily answered.

Jesus Drago that thing is demonic, and I don't believe in either which speaks to how significantly horrified I was by the image.

Sorry for the delay in answering, I was in another dimension.

I believe some people found the original cube too simple . . .
