Great idea! It may be that this has done before but I can't recall it. Then again my memory is currently a puddle of water so thats no conclusive evidence of the non-existence of anything.
You know you're a Dinotopian when:
When talking or referring to Az (or anyone else from this community) IRL you have trouble keeping in mind to refer to them by their RL human name.
When talking or referring to someone you know IRL who is also a boardmember, you have trouble remembering to refer to them by their screenname while on the OMB or in chat with people who DON'T know them IRL.
Problems, however grand, can be fixed if enough chocolate is used for a bribe.
You find yourself quoting the code IRL when you try to explain your actions or ideas.
You're dying to read the new HP book but you'd do anything to switch the release date of that with the release date of Journey to Chandara no matter how many murderous HP fans would come after you.
You never had any affinity with art before but Dinotopia 'saved' you.
You fall into a community, stay for 7 years and find yourself demi-admin. I'm still not sure what was in that chocolate Az gave me. jkjk
You spend way too much time wondering what Az's DINOTOPIAN wedding would look like.
When on a shopping spree with friends your mind is continuously converting objects and clothing to 'Dinotopian' versions or seeing a way to mend several different influences together into a Dinotopia-ish clash.
When going through your wardrobe, you get ideas on how to make a Dinotopia costume of some of it.
You really wish you could go to Bix and beg her to help you with your languages.
You'd go to Dinotopia if you could, EVEN if they didn't have coffee and you'd spend the rest of your life being an involuntary vegetarian.
Its funny because I used to actually base my characters after the vehicles we were currently driving. The large the vehicle the larger the saurian. How odd! :silly:
You Know Your a Dinotopian When:
~You scour caves for sunstones, thinking "If only I could find some, we could get rid of cars forever!"
~You find yourself repulsed at the sight of eggs, and meat. Just thinking of the creature that died to put that meat on your plate makes you sick.
~You find yourself creating whole cultures on Dinotopia and get exceedingly worried that they won't fit in with canon.
~You get a town named after you on Dinotopia (You go Azzy!)
~Your art begins to take on an oddly Saurian theme.
~You feel that the back story of Dinotopia is a bit vague, so you study the books and come up with a way to "Fill in the blanks" as it were in Dinotpian History.
~You actually find yourself looking for old journals with odd pressed specimens and pictures in used book stores and thrift shops.
~You get very annoyed when your friends touch your dinosaur models. Complaining they messed up your recreation of Dinosaur Parade.
~You celebrate Dinotopian Holidays more than regular ones.
~You begin to wonder if your house was built to "Saurian Standards".
~You use your knowledge of science, the books and just good old fashioned imagination to create plausible ways for Dinosaurs that span the millennia to all end up on an island without them evolving into one another or eating each other before entering the World Beneath. (I've actually done this one!)
Thats all I can think of right now. I'll get back to it.
Her mystique is one of innocence, I feel I'm lounging in lovely in her deep green eyes. And i will be living in paradise if I were always around her like her Siamese.
I find that I can't breathe And I can't sleep When she's not around Every day is bluey gray when she not in town when she's not in town.

I went to a carnival yesterday and they had a ride that was supposed to simulate hang gliding...the riders lay on their stomachs on platforms to ride. Yes it did go around in a circle but I loved it anyway and rode three times...to me it was a little bit what riding a Skybax must be like, only without the metal restraints and going a lot higher.
Or being the skybax for that matter With the same differences as above. It was still easy to close my eyes and imagine it.
Hand over the chocolate and no one gets hurt! Except Raptors, because even I refuse to get between a raptor and his/her chocolate.
Happy to be a Christian Dinotopia lover

Really Dwaggie? That's cool. I hardly ever had to go as far as I-68, I always peeled off just before the split of I-70 and I-68 and headed to Berkeley Springs, WV. Hmm, I wonder if Dinotopia has a formation like Sidling Pass...*ponders*
- You learn the footprint alphabet and use it to write in a diary so no one else can read it! (I have!) - You ponder using "Breathe Deep, Seek Peace" in a tattoo and think it's a good idea to consult Gurney first! (I'll get around to that eventually...and getting an artist to make it look pretty!)
"Weapons are enemies, even to their owners," Chided the instructor. Edmund smiled and offered his hands palm-up. "Here are my weapons," he said, "My empty hands."
I have a colleague in another department at my work whose last name is Dennison. I have only ever made his acquaintaince through e-mail, since we are in different buildings. I cannot help but think of him as looking like Arthur in the books, though, and I constantly refer to him as "Will" instead of his real first name (Luckily just to myself and not in a message, at least so far)...

applejack: Hello, Sarabean. Ebay is definitely the way to go. You can reach the most amount of people that way.

Sarabean: Hello everyone, I have a Dinotopia tee shirt and sweatshirt from 1992 but am unable to find any on ebay. Any suggestions if selling on ebay is the way to go, or is a different avenue better? Thanks

Zips: Hey all, found this site as a gateway to trying to collect the entire collection of Hallmark Dinotopia Eggs, any resources to making this belated childhood dream happen?

applejack: I'm not an appraiser, but the prices for the 1000pc puzzles seem to be listed online for 35-50 dollars used. Of course, this doesn't say anything about whether they're actually sellable for that amount, only that they're being offered at those prices.

Denwill: Hi I'm not sure if I'm going about this in the right way but I just wanted to get some advice on the value of two 1994 1000 piece dinotopia puzzles that I have. Looking to sell them. Can anyone help?

applejack: Just create a topic in the Dinotopia Discussion forum. You can post pictures of the item, though again, no direct links, and let people know they can send you a PM or email for the direct link to your auction page or for some other kind of arrangements.

datoyshoppe: There are a lot of different topics going on and not much activity? Any suggestions on a best area to post in? Link?
Jun 20, 2016 8:15:48 GMT -5
datoyshoppe: OK that's fine. It is listed on eBay under Gigantic 3 Foot Dinotopia Dinosaur currently listed.
Jun 20, 2016 8:12:51 GMT -5
applejack: Heh. Sorry I can't be of any more help. I'm not the merchandise guy here. Just put a post in the Dinotopia forum. Don't put up any links though, since you have under 15 posts. Just let people know they can PM you or email you for any inquiries.

datoyshoppe: It is 2002 MAT Movies and Television Productions. Very authentically DINOTOPIA it also has "26" Dinotopia on it and distributed by Hallmark Entertainment Distribution LLC. It is literally 3 feet tall. I am going to post it for auction tonight.
Jun 18, 2016 19:11:14 GMT -5
applejack: Hmm... I can't seem to find anything about any large 3-ft tall Dinotopia plushes. The only thing I can see is a large triceratops plush kids can ride put out by KOTA. Are there any tags that identify the manufacturer or how it's related to Dinotopia?
Jun 18, 2016 17:48:04 GMT -5
datoyshoppe: I am new here. I was interested in any information on the GIGANTIC Dinotopia Dinosaur I found recently? It is HUGE like probably three feet tall or so. Was it a display plush? It is the only one I have found over the years. If anyone has any more info?
