[Review] Finally Pulled the Taobao Trigger!

2020.10.20 21:37 Sirijie [Review] Finally Pulled the Taobao Trigger!

Hello RepLadies,
From ordering with TS Apple to Fisherman to Uncle Lin, I've finally pulled the trigger to shop on Taobao (and totally not because I was getting ready to move to California so saving money was very much a real thing). Now, this wasn't the first time I've seen this website. My mom used to frequent China (RIP traveling plans 2020) and would spend hours looking online and have it sitting nice and pretty once she landed. Anyways, long story short, I saw a post a few months that mentioned Taobao direct and I really wanted to try it out - TL;DR: tried taobao direct, failed horribly because I couldn't get Alipay to link. I went back on RL and did some reading on trusted sellers (ie. agents) for Taobao. This post will be heavily based on my experience with Basetao, in case you want to skip further down of the page. So without further ado, this was my journey!
***************************************************************************************

My Journey with BaseTao (feel free to skip):


  1. Tuesday Sept 1st: Emailed Basetao about the VIP upgrade in the morning and got a reply in the evening that they have upgraded my VIP ranking.
  2. Wednesday Sept 2nd: Submitted some form of ID to Basetao*more on this later and got approved. Tried to top-up my fund and realized that Basetao has their own exchange rate so I had to have them cancel the Paypal transfer 🤪 Basetao got back to me by the evening with the transaction cancelled and then emailed me nicely to try again. WOW. I did and purchased all the good good!
  3. Thursday Sept 3rd: The good good is now changed from "assigned" to "ordered".
  4. Friday Sept 4th: Got a message on Basetao that one of my item is on backorder - messaged them back and said that I'll wait.
  5. Saturday Sept 5th (12:30am because insomnia): Received an email that one of my package has arrived at the warehouse! Got PSP as well!
  6. Friday Sept 18th: Finally got a message in the evening that my final item has arrived at the warehouse! Waited on the PSP before hitting the "ship" button.
  7. Friday Sept 19th: I had to return an item as it was a bad batch. I'm very upset about it but I used the money to buy something else along with a million things in my cart. In case anyone was wondering: OFF WHITE Pink Global Warming Hoodie - 299 CNY (about $44USD or $58CAD) [PSP] [W2C] [Authentic] **I've posted the PSP to be QC'd on FashionReps and they basically told me to drop it like it's hot.
  8. Tuesday Sept 23rd: Got my refund and ordered this instead! The wait begins!
  9. Friday Sept 25th: Woke up to my item at the warehouse. PSP received at around 11am PST. WHAT?! Do they even sleep? Submitted to ship!
  10. Monday Oct 19th: Missed delivery because they needed someone to sign for it. UGH
  11. Tuesday Oct 20th: It is now in my hands!
I CHOSE TO REMOVE ALL BOXES TO REDUCE SHIPPING COST

Common Project Achilles Low AKA "The Good 'ol RepLadies Starter Pack" - 298 CNY (about $44USD or $58CAD)

Ratings:
(Disclaimer: I will not knock off points due to it being a rep because I know what I'm purchasing)
** Quality 10/10 **
Positives + general comments:
The leather feels softer and way more malleable than the authentic. Like we're talking no blisters. I don't even think I'll have to break them in other than where my foot bends. There is not fufu smell.
** Satisfaction 9.5/10 **
I love it. It is everything I wanted without the hefty price tag! I would definitely buy another colour in the future. I think my Gucci Bee sneaker has competition. It also came with an extra pair of laces so that's always a win.
** Seller's Communication and Service 9.5/10**
Since I've used an agent, they did most of the chatting for me (if there were any). However, the website was relatively easy to use. It was really easy to know what colour you were getting.
But, BaseTao itself is going to get -0.5 because I think it wasn't packaged properly so the right shoe came extremely crooked that it doesn't lay flat. I am having it sit with a shoe tree in it at the moment. It is not noticeable when I have it on but it is extremely noticeable when I take it off.
** Accuracy 9/10 ***
Positives + general comments:
The print looks to be in the correct spot and there are no smudges. Since it's hard to tell with the right shoe, I am solely basing it off of the left shoe. I am not rating the dust bag since I won't be using it at all. The sizing is on point. I took a size 35 which still feels a little loose - which is really similar to how I am in most shoes.
Not so positive:

Polene Number One Nano - 298 CNY (about $44USD or $58CAD)

** Quality 10/10 **
Positives + general comments:
Smells like leather, feels like leather with no fufu smell. It is AMAZING! It is soft and has the right amount of weight. The shoulder strap was wrapped really nicely. I don't even need to flatten it out! As well, all the buttons snap on and off really smoothly.
** Satisfaction 10/10 **
Straight up, this is basically what I was looking for. I might even get a black one! I opted for this colour in particular because of the pebbled leather. I felt that the smooth leather wouldn't look as nice.
** Seller's Communication and Service 10/10**
Since I've used an agent, they did most of the chatting for me (if there were any). However, the website was easy to use. I felt like the pictures they've used was a little hard to know what colour they are compared to the auth's website.
** Accuracy 8.25/10 **
Positives + general comments:
I specifically picked this one because 1) I don't think there are anyone in North America will know this brand well enough and 2) I can't see myself rocking this at the moment but believe me, I'm eyeing at Linda's group buy...
To be honest, I was worried at first because the PSP made the bag look lighter than the burgundy but darker than the cognac on the auth website. This is definitely a burgundy colour but the website shows that the burgundy colour doesn't come in pebbled leather. I also don't know how the auth looks like so I can't tell you if it is insanely accurate. But, basing it off of the website, it looks really good.
Not so positive:
***************************************************************************************
Here's my mod shot trying to look hype. I'm about 5'1, narrow foot ranging from size 5 - 6 US. Typically wear XS/S in tops and jeans at around 25 with an athletic build (thicc thighs save lives).
I really enjoyed using Basetao. They were efficient in ordering + replying to my questions/comments on their website. It's not instant but honestly, they were faster than most people on email! I'll definitely continue to use Basetao. I've never had to wait longer than 24hours to get a reply. I'm glad my first experience with TB was through an agent because I was able to QC the item before the long haul from China to the US. Imagine how upset I would have been with my Off White hoodie! For this reason alone, I suggest first timers to use an agent until you know that the shop is reputable with tons of reviews.
If there's one thing I don't like about Basetao is that you have to "recharge" your account instead of paying exactly what you need to buy the items. It's a hassle especially if you're only missing a few CNY and now you have to pay the closest amount of USD and have leftover CNY.
Overall, I've enjoyed the experience and definitely can see how this is opening pandora's box! Thank you for reading my little blurb! As you might've caught on, I am now on American soil. This is the first time ordering rep to the US so there were a lot more additionally research RE: seizing goods. See you all again when I decide to dig deeper into TB!
**ID Proof to Basetao - I sent them a picture of my driver's license while blocking out most information such as: DOB, expiration date, signature, and home address. The only information I didn't block out was my name and my picture. I remember reading somewhere in this sub that people were concerned about data breach or storing info about you somewhere + selling it. I have 2 Google Home mini at home and you would think I could care less about this whole security thing; but, I decided to play it safe regardless.
edit: accuracy for Polene bag

So, as usual it's been a while but I emerge from my nest yet again! Here is another contender for a possible story I could follow up with next. I know people were interested in Apotheosis Siezed but I wanted to give options before settling on anything.
Without further ado here is Pawn! I hope you enjoy!
Neu Vieumau Joint Occupation Zone
Arana carefully held her pack close to her body as she peered out across the street, looking either way for activity. There was a squad of human soldiers in their dull blue armor just up the street inspecting a box hauler for some reason. But they soon moved on. The human soldiers always made her nervous. While the humans hadn’t stolen anything from her personally she’d had a lot of trouble with the various occupation forces since the end of the war. Everyone had. They kept promising that the new round of reforms would fix things. Yet, here they were.
Once the soldiers had moved on she carefully picked her way across the street. The various vehicles spread across the street were all in poor state. Some missing their wheels and stacked up on blocks. A few looked like they might be functional, even if the paint was mostly stripped or they had mismatched doors. Just about all the buildings around here had some form of damage done to them leftover from the war. Though this neighborhood was mostly intact. Not like her home in Shadowbrook. Half the buildings there were just rubble. It was low on the priority list for the Urban Reconstruction Corps.
As she walked she noticed a few others on the street as well. Just like her they were moving with purpose, heads down typically. If one didn’t look around too much they wouldn’t be able to see what was wrong in New Vieumau. To think it was once so well known for artists, academics, and as much free thinking as free parties. It might not be the home she once knew, but she still hoped she might one day see it restored to its former glory. Even if she didn’t intend to stick around through this current phase of… redevelopment.
Which is why she was here. She paused as she looked up at the shop before her. Unlike the other buildings this one had been patched up. Bullet holes plastered over, and new masonry patching up damage from the war. The owner must have done the work personally. While she knew the human letters she still wasn’t sure what it meant exactly. “Pawn Shop.” She knew that it really meant barterstore, but wondered what the human term meant. Feeling a little nervous she took out her small compact mirror to look at her face. Her horns were polished and sharpened. Her hair was clean. She gave a big smile to make sure her teeth were free of bits of food. Finally she gave her tail a quick wiggle as if to encourage herself.
Then she opened the heavy door and stepped inside. It wasn’t like the stores she was used to. There was a big main room with what looked to be heavy stronglass separating the customers from the goods beyond. None of the aisles or shelves she would normally browse. Just floor to ceiling panels of stronglass isolating the owner and goods behind it from the outside world. She could even see what looked like a few scorch marks, scratches, and divots where people had obviously tried to break it.
In front of each panel was a sturdy looking console bolted to the floor with a swipe screen on it. It took her a moment to realize that besides the various items and goods she could see each console could be checked for more goods not on display. But she was mostly focused on a large vidscreen set behind the stronglass.
“Offworld tickets.” That was what she came here for. But she sighed when she saw that instead of prices it displayed: “Updating.” Looking around she didn’t see the owner, or any clerk so she carefully stepped closer in to start looking at the goods on the shelves. She wasn’t surprised to see a section dedicated to rations and medical supplies. While the worst of the long starve was over food security was still important. Not to mention getting meds from the occupation authority was like pulling scales off a razormink.
However beyond that she noticed a much larger variety of more… seemingly random offerings. Old fashioned physical books, art supplies, musical instruments, knives, jewelry of every shape and size, boots, hauler parts, computer parts, bot parts, so many parts! Then she neared the edge of the store and paused as she looked over a section that actually interested her. Old fashioned physical games!
She saw an incredibly detailed Devious Confessions board. She hadn’t played that game in ages... Then there were a few sets of Dashings, plus some of those Krenka games she recognized even if she never played. Every species seemed to have a few games on display. Though her eyes then settled on an incredible black and white board she’d never seen before with little detailed pieces arrayed across from one another. One side was dazzlingly white, as if just the smallest bit of light would be reflected and make each piece glow, while the other side looked to be so dark and shadowy she had trouble focusing on each piece even just before her face.
“Interested in chess?” The sudden human voice made Arana gasp and jump back, dropping her pack as she raised her fists to ward off a surprise attack. She even tilted her head to bring her horns to bear if need be. But instead of some hidden ambusher she just saw a human behind the stronglass, hands raised. “Whoa! Sorry! I didn’t mean to startle you.”
“Oh.” Arana straightened up then and dropped her hands, somewhat sheepishly tugging the strap of her pack to pick it back up and hug it. “Apologies. I didn’t expect a human.” She studied his face for a moment. Tan flesh, simple yet practical merchant’s attire, brown hair with speckles of white around his temples. She noticed a bit of grease and oil along his hands and forearms, plus a number of tools tucked into the pockets of his apron. Tiyava hadn’t mentioned this merchant would be human…
To her great surprise however he then spoke up in Divine. “[Wouldst thou prefere instead to converse in the tongue of the Divine? Many shadows across the moon have passed since this humble proprietor has had chance to partake of the great barter under the eyes of one of Swagin’s faithful.]” Arana shuddered a little. He sounded just like a shadow bishop.
“That’s okay.” She replied back in human. “My human is pretty good. If you don’t mind?”
“It’s called English, but yes you do speak it well. I only meant to try and set you at ease.” The human explained, obviously having no idea he had done just the opposite. She couldn’t remember the last time she’d had someone speak to her in Divine and not had it be part of a lecture during the Great Feast, or Suffering Moon.
“This is your store?” She asked, trying to set her mind a bit more at ease.
“It is.” The human nodded. “My name is Gustavo Clay. Though most just call me Clay. You’re free to do so as well if you like.”
“Clay…” She spoke the word carefully for a moment and nodded. “I am Kwansularanadivo. You may call me Arana.”
“It is nice to meet you Arana.” The human nodded and then walked along the backside of the stronglass and shelves to point at the board she had been looking at before. “I saw you admiring the chess board. Are you interested?”
“It’s beautiful.” She nodded a moment. “It is a human game?”
“It is.” He confirmed. “Very old. Lot of history. Though… I’ll admit I don’t care for it myself.”
“Oh?” She stepped back up to the window as he lifted a piece off the board and slowly turned it over, letting her see the detailed work. She had no idea what the piece was meant to represent but it looked well made even so. “What is the goal?”
“To take the opponent's king.” He held out the piece he had picked up. The king apparently. “Each piece has a set of movements it can make across the board. You take turns and try to capture pieces and win the game.”
“You don’t care for it?” She asked and the man shrugged.
“Just because it’s got history doesn’t mean it’s a great game. Only two players, and kinda stuffy for my taste. But you’re welcome to it obviously.” He tapped on a button in the back and she saw the screen of the console switch to various views of the chess game he had.
“I am looking for a good game to play on a ship. I like to find a game when I travel and teach it to other passengers. It’s… rewarding.” She nodded a little as she felt that human word worked.
“Ah, a travel game? Might I recommend…” He moved over and instead picked up a small bit of carved wood that had a little compartment in the bottom and a set of tiny holes on top. “A cribbage board, and a deck of cards.” He opened the compartment to reveal small pegs, and then grabbed a deck of cards from somewhere behind the shelf.
“It looks… simple.” She frowned a little at the board.
“This is really just to track points. The main game is in the cards. You deal, then play numbered values to add up to certain numbers. Fifteen and thirty one mostly. But there’s various stages in the play which keep it interesting. Plus you can play with two, three, or four players. Here, you can download the rules free.” He motioned her to the console once more and she saw a burst code show up.
Tugging her phone free of a pocket she waved it across the console, confirmed the download, and then saw a new icon appear. Tapping on it she found a list that made her blink. “How many variations of this game are there?”
“Oh, that’s just for all card games. I highly recommend traveling with cards. The amount of games is… there’s a lot. And it’s cheap. Just one credit for the deck.” He held up the cards behind the stronglass.
“And the board?” She nodded at the carved wood.
“Six credits.” Seven credits for a simple, yet nice wooden board, those pegs, and a deck of cards that could be played… She glanced at the app for a moment and marveled at the sheer scale of options. Yet, that chess board was so gorgeous… and the pieces as well… It would give her an air of sophistication. That might be important for her new life. She needed to reinvent herself after all.
“How much is the chess board?” Maybe she could get both? Seven credits after all was a very nice meal. Two lesser ones maybe. She could skip a bit of eating.
“Four hundred credits.” The human announced.
“Four hundred credits?!” Arana gasped. “Loopacooni! Even for an opening bid that’s outrageous!”
“It’s not an opening bid. That’s the price. It’s a collector’s item of… some variant. I forget but I’ve done the research.” He insisted.
“What sort of bartershop doesn’t come down off an offer like that for a boardgame?” Arana countered.
“Who said this is a bartershop?” The human asked with a frown. “It’s a pawn shop. Not the same.”
“My friend Tiyava said you were.” Arana was beginning to wonder if this was the wrong place.
“Oh Tiyava? I know her. Wonderful lady. She has many trinkets to sell. I think this is… a minor translation issue. I will buy things from you, and also sell them. But I don’t engage in [haggletongue.]” He shrugged. “Did you have things you needed to sell?”
“Yes…” Arana nodded slowly. This had to be the place then. Tiyava only mentioned one fence for her hauls. “I want to get off world.” She nodded at the vid screen up above.
“Ah. Then maybe you do have the credits. Hold on.” She watched the human step back and reach up to tap a button on the screen before it flicked over and she saw a list update. There were only a handful of places that they could still reach these days with most of the gates ruined in the war. But she knew where she wanted to go.
Partizania Rai. The archipelago planet had once been a retreat for artists wanting to escape the city life of Neu Vieumau. Now it was trapped in limbo as tourism was no longer viable, yet they didn’t have much infrastructure for a fishing industry or… really any industry. Still. She knew her future was on that planet. Away from this mess. Find herself an island somewhere and just… subsist.
That is until she saw the prices as they began to display. “Loopacooni safisco kawksuhkwa jinero!”
“I can assure you I, nor my mother are all that bad.” The human replied even as Arana glared at him.
“This is mistake! Or lies! How can a ticket be sixtreen hundids! Chepist! Other only moah!” Her human was degrading in her anger but she couldn’t help herself as her tail quivered.
“This is the price. That sixteen hundred one is if you already have a travel permit. I should also note I only deal with a private ship. Guaranteed to get you there. You’d be the only passenger. No questions asked. Discreet. If you have a travel permit and don’t mind flying a public transport then by all means go to the spaceport.” Arana continued to glare at the human, unsure if he was purposefully saying that because he knew she wouldn’t have a permit or if he was genuinely trying to be helpful. “Do you have any skills that can be used on a ship? It’s not a service I typically advertise but I can arrange for a work passage system. Work on a ship for a few months to pay for your voyage.”
“What skills are useful on a ship?” She was sure she already knew the answer but... “Art?” The human just looked at her for a moment and very slowly shook his head. “Loopacooni…” She couldn’t let this stop her. She wouldn’t have much left over to start her new life… but she could still do this. She couldn’t let him know how badly she needed this. He said it wasn’t that kind of bartershop… but she still suspected it was. At least a little. It was 2300 for the next ticket… That actually seemed right to her. Travel permits were about a thousand to grease the right palms… He was providing a discount. Likely since he knew better palms to grease.
“Did you have something to trade?” The human asked next and she nodded, opening her pack as she very carefully pulled out a temperseal case holding her Aunt’s prized possession. Which she left for Arana in the Grand Farewell. “Something delicate then. Please.” The human motioned for her to place it in an object scanner set in the middle of the store. Setting the case in place she watched and waited as the scanner got to work.
She was rewarded with seeing his surprise as the image came up on the screen. “A Wonderland Rose?” It was nice to see the human hadn’t expected it.
“My aunt, taken into the great party of Swagin’s palace, left it to me.” She mentioned.
“Oh, [May she forever grace your memories with pleasure as jubilant as the party she celebrates in her death.]” Arana was still a bit unsure how a human knew so much Divine. Yet, she nodded.
“[Her celebrations in death shall echo pleasure across time and memory.]” She completed the polite return. But she felt a bit self conscious about her own pronunciation. His Divine was better than hers. She was much more used to decktongue with other Davari.
“I know you Davari grieve differently but I’d also say I’m sorry for your loss. If your aunt left this to you she clearly cared for you deeply. She might be enjoying Swagin’s party but I’m sure you’ll miss her as well.” Arana was further offset by the human’s words. It was something she had been thinking about lately, but the scriptures frowned on such sentiment… Still…
“Thank you… but do not think I will let up on price.” She countered, fearing this was a barter tactic.
“Hah… no I’m sure you won’t.” On the otherside of the stronglass the human tapped on a console to carefully rotate the image of the rose. “Mmhhh… it’s a secondary production.”
“What?!” Arana nearly yanked the temperseal case out of the scanner, fearing a trick. But when he zoomed in the image she could see in much smaller print on the bottom of the rose stem the production date. He was right… She had always assumed it was a first run! The value… Her heart began to sink in her chest…
“It’s still in immaculate shape and the second production had some benefits over the originals. Even if it's less rare…” The human muttered and then looked down as he typed into a dataslate he was holding. “I can offer you eighteen hundred.”
Arana was once more surprised, the offer seemed… good. Yet it didn’t matter… It wasn’t enough. She looked up at the board as her dream began to slip through her fingers… Where could she go? Huzata? Yes, because she wanted to live on a rock of dust and debris. Plus she’d still be broke once she got there. Janlim? Oh by Swagin’s knife all those polens… She nearly sneezed just thinking about it. The Traitor’s moon? No. Not even an option. Krassian’s moon? Maybe life in low atmosphere wouldn’t be so bad… She could still find a way to subsist in the oxy-fens…
“If you don’t mind me asking… I’m assuming you want to go to Partizania Rai?” Arana returned her focus to the human.
“I am.” She nodded.
“There’s a way… we could help each other.” Arana looked at the human and watched him carefully. Tiyava had never mentioned him being… overtly shady so she hoped that he wasn’t about to suggest what she feared. “I have something here you might be interested in.” She watched him move along the wall of stronglass to a display case that seemed to hold various trinkets and toys she hadn’t paid much attention to. “This is Jiji Numaske.” He pointed to what seemed to be nothing more than a toy robot of some kind. It was a little on the large side. Perhaps as long as her forearm. But… looked like plastic and nowhere near the fine material craftsmanship of the chess board she had admired earlier.
“What of him?” She asked and looked from the robot up at the human.
“He’s worth thirty six hundred credits to the right buyer.” Even as he said that she couldn’t help but laugh.
“You are telling me! This children’s play thing! Is worth more than a ticket to another world! With a travel permit!” She gasped out.
“I am.” He nodded slowly and her laughing trailed off. Now more curious about what he was getting at.
“How does this help me? I cannot afford it.” She reminded him.
“I said it’s worth thirty six hundred credits to the right buyer. I am not the right buyer. Unfortunately the right buyer hates me because he thinks I stole this from him. Which, before you ask, I didn’t. I knew how much it was worth and bought it up from a repo auction before he could. Now he refuses to buy it from me. So I have a very expensive piece of junk that no one wants to buy. Because no one other than a collector cares about it.” Arana looked from the human to the robot toy and back, waiting to hear where she came into this. “Do you know that tower two blocks over?”
“Past the Cathedral? The ugly teal one? Teal… is the color yes? Not green, not blue, trapped between in defiance of both?” She had trouble remembering human color names sometimes. Or really… most color names. When every language had its own names for colors and not all species saw colors the same… it could get confusing.
“Uh yes. Teal.” He confirmed. “Well, the collector lives there in the penthouse. So. You sell me the rose, and I give you Jiji here for what I paid for him. Sixteen hundred credits. And… two hundred more credits because the rose is worth eighteen hundred. You, then take this to the collector and you get the full value. Come back here and you get your ticket offworld today. The ship is actually in the starport right now.” He checked his watch and she tensed up a little.
Was this a trick? A ploy? Or was he being serious? The notion of limited time made her nervous… She could leave the moment she had her ticket. What was in her pack was all she wanted with her for her new life… It had to be a trick. Why trust him? It didn’t fit. “I don’t know you. Why do this? Why not have Tiyava do it?”
“Ah… your friend is nice but… She never has sixteen hundred credits to pay my cost for the toy.” The human shrugged.
“I’m not trusting…” Arana held her pack close to her chest as she thought it over. “What if toy is worthless and you just… swindle grift me?” The human eyed her carefully then just as she eyed him in return. He took a moment and brushed at the greying edge of his hair while he seemed to think.
“That’s… fair… Okay… How about this. I give you Jiji here. You go get the credits. Come back. And either buy the tickets and sell me the rose then, or just buy the ticket and get less credits for your trip.” This also made Arana frown… this now seemed… too lenient? Why would he trust her if they had just met? Surely this human was as wary of her as she of him?
“Why would you trust me with this then? I might run off with your precious toy.” Arana did her best to study the human now. Trying to remember all she could about their body language.
“I know that sometimes we must trust one another. That to benefit us both I have to have some faith in your intent. If this toy sits here for years it’s worthless to me anyway so I might gamble a chance at a return of money for once… I can survive the loss. Plus… I saw it in your eyes earlier when you looked at the board. You really want this trip. I don’t think you’re pretending. Is it a chance to start a new life?” He asked and she nodded slowly. “Then I especially wish to help you. I had my own chance at starting a new life. I’d like you to have that same opportunity.”
Arana considered this… It certainly sounded good… What did she have to lose? But… that somehow made her more nervous. Swagin said to be wary of a deal made to look too good… Yet Swagin also said to take advantage of kindness from those who don’t know better… Did this store owner know better? Then he spoke up again. “Plus, I’ll be honest. If I really wanted to I could track you down and get my value out of you. Tiyava doesn’t try to steal from me because she is afraid of me.”
That sounded right to her. It all fit in. He would profit more from trusting her than not. Plus, he could strike revenge should she betray him. All was within the teachings of Swagin. What had the human called himself? Clay. “Very well Clay. There is just one issue. I don’t have a pass to enter the Ravex zone of occupation. Which that tower is within. Is it not?”
“But you are Davari. You’re allowed to go through the cathedral.” He pointed out as he carefully took out the toy to seal it in a steadybox for her to take. “There is a single Jipasi guard who checks worshipers in to the cathedral. No matter what it looks like he’s doing, give him fifty credits… Do you have fifty credits?” Arana shook her head and he sighed before pulling out a few bills. “Give him these and move on. Take the elevator to the penthouse. Ask for Huurg. No matter what, don’t tell that Kra’Kto’Sui idiot you got this from me. Say… whatever. Just don’t tell him it was from me.” With that he pressed the box and the bills into a rotating stronglass container, spinning it around to her side so she could grab it.
“I will return soon.” She tucked the box into her pack, zipping it up and slinging it over a shoulder while she kept the bills tucked into her hand. Eying the rose in its temperseal on the counter she hesitated a moment and pointed at him. “If this is still a trick I can get revenge too.”
“Hah… I don’t doubt it.” Clay smiled at her and shrugged. “I’ll make sure to tell the ship to wait. Just in case.”
That reminded her… if she did this quickly she could be off. No more old life. No more history. A totally new experience awaited her… She focused on her task then and stepped out of the door before checking up and down the street much like earlier. No occupation forces in sight. If she ran she’d make good time. But that would draw a lot of attention…
So she settled instead for a light jog. The strap of her pack held tight as she moved. A person late for a meeting. Or work. Nothing too strenuous. Just a light jog… pay no attention… As much as she could she tried to will this thought at those also on the street. But much like earlier they kept their heads down and also moved with purpose. It wasn’t a good time for a mugging anyway.
As she rounded the corner she saw the cathedral up ahead. There was a group of Ravex soldiers on the street past it, guarding a checkpoint. Arana was always nervous around the giant scaled, clawed, warriors. Who strapped blades to their tails? Then again she had ritual scars etched across her body that other species also found worrisome. Everyone had something to mistrust in others… Yet, her Aunt had spoken about them killing her servants in the war and casting her into near squalor within Shadowbrook so she had a very real reason to hate them as well.
But for now she ignored them, and instead turned to enter the cathedral. All around her the stone work had scaffolding up covering a great deal of it. The faces of Swagin, his icons of wrath, the halls of pleasure, the finality of death, all the great segments were being carefully restored. This is where the money went for the reconstruction fund… Thousands living in Shadowbrook? Eh. A bunch of stones in a cathedral that no one really needs? Better fix that immediately! She tried not to hate too hard… Lest Swagin take offence. Really she knew his works must always be maintained. But Swagin himself would likely rather see his faithful made safe so they may take pleasure in better housing!
There was a small security checkpoint just before the doors into the cathedral interior. A lone Jipasi was sitting on a chair next to the security scanner. While Arana wasn’t sure what to make of humans she always found Jipasi amusing. The furry bipeds seemed so much more lively and amusing than their human allies. Plus who didn’t like those glorious brightly colored tail feathers they had? This one though was stretched out, arms crossed over his chest, his helmet carefully tilted over his eyes as he seemed to be sleeping…
Arana squeezed the fifty credits in her hand… Should she save the money? She slowed down to a careful creep instead of her jog… The human had said to give him the credits no matter what. Even if he was sleeping? Maybe she’d check it out… Bypassing the security scanner she leaned down and reached out to carefully tug the Jipasi’s helmet up. Then she nearly yelped in surprise as pulling up his helmet revealed his eyes to be wide open looking at her.
Gulping she carefully lowered his helmet, then reached out to tuck the credits into a pocket on the chest of his armor. A moment later she lifted his helmet slowly once more and now his eyes were closed. Lowering the helmet a finale time she stepped past, thankful for the human’s warning to her earlier.
Stepping into the main cathedral now she was almost entirely plunged into darkness. Such was the realm of Swagin. But there were a few bits of light at least. Two were from the depictions of the Eternal Party taking up the main wall in the back. Another was from the Shadow Bishop’s pulpit of storms near the ceiling. These three points normally cast the pews and pillars into dark shadows for the faithful to file into every Hoorsinda.
But the Cathedral had another light source these days. A giant hole in the ceiling casting a ray of sunshine down upon a Void Cruiser’s escape pod. It had lodged itself in the vista of virtuous sin and had actually crushed Shadow Cardinal Exckhartismal during the war. Many said it had been used by a vile Absolute Dynamics synth to escape capture. Many said he still roamed the streets at night slaughtering organics. Or some such nonsense. Arana didn’t really believe that. Even so, the Shadow Cardinal had actually been embezzling from the church, and he had been killed in such a spectacular fashion that it fit too well with Swagin’s code of vengeance. So the hole remained open, and the pod remained untouched. Guarded by the Ecclesiarchy even. Scripture made odd choices sometimes…
Ignoring that for now she scurried along the back wall, doing her best not to be noticed by any stray acolytes or priests who might think she was here to partake in holy whiskey or scar herself for the favor of Swagin. Today was not the day. Instead she moved to the side entrance to try and get out of the cathedral as swiftly as possible. While she still wasn’t sure that the toy she now had was actually worth what Clay had said… She hoped it was true.
Swagin of course would remind her that hope is a harlot. But still… Sometimes even the faithful must hope.
When she stepped out of the side door she saw the teal tower just a block away. One of the lower levels had several missing windows from some firefights but the rest of the tower looked intact. It was somewhat near the other side of the Ravex checkpoint however. Arana’s tail gave a quick twitch of anxiety but she pressed on. This time taking a more relaxed stride. She belonged here. Not a care in the world. Just heading home from church.
Near the entrance to the tower two older Davari were sitting on crates playing a game of Dashings. The smell of their cheap nicosticks filling the air as she approached, making her snort a little. Filthy human drugs… They glanced up for a moment but quickly returned to their game as she pointedly ignored them and walked past. The lobby had faded teal carpet with only a few stains here and there. None of them blood stains either. Upscale then.
When she hit the button to the lift she was a bit surprised that it quickly opened up. She wasn’t sure the last time she’d seen a working lift in such good condition. Before the war? Probably. Yet, just as she stepped inside she spotted another Davari step out of a door on the main floor and approach. She tucked her pack closer to her chest as he stepped on with her. He gave her a smile and nodded at the control. “[What floor sister?]” He asked in decktongue.
“[I’m not your sister. Penthouse.]” Her fingers crept into a side pocket in her pack, wrapping around the hilt of a knife.
“[Penthouse… Got some business worth my time?]” He asked then and opened his jacket a bit to reveal the grip of a pistol tucked into his pants. Did he want a fee?
“[I have something for the collector. But if you think you can tax me you best aim for my heart. I won’t bend.]” Even as she said that the other davari laughed and raised a hand.
“[Settle sister settle! No need to sprint to the great party. You sound serious though. Lets go see him.]” He hit a button for the top floor. Even as the doors closed and the lift began to rise up the building Arana kept her fingers clutched tight around her knife. Was he security? Clay hadn’t mentioned security. Then again, he was a barter store owner. Why would he? If this collector hated him he’d never have been here. “[Got something cute in the pack sister?]”
Arana just glared at the other Davari who smirked, seeming to be amused by her behavior. When the elevator stopped the door opened to reveal another door. This confused her a moment until it opened up as well to reveal some kind of… command center? There were desks and computers spread out around what was once a giant living room. A towering Kra’Kto’Sui began to lumber towards them even as the other Davari waved her out of the lift. He hadn’t pulled his gun yet… but she understood the idea.
For now her focus was on the big aquatic xeno lumbering towards her. The Kra’Kto’Sui were a species of aquatic multilimbed creatures that could live on dry ground in big suits kept constantly wet. She didn’t know much about their species except they typically were enemies of the Ecclesiarchy, so it was surprising to see one moving among so many Davari manning the computer desks. It used pairs of limbs to move along like a quadruped, since they needed the extra support to move around outside of water. Looking past the figure out the window she saw a big pool on the roof with furniture under the water. Perhaps he slept out there?
“[Bossman, found this one slipping up the lift. Not a resident. Says she has something for you.]” The other Davari from the lift announced as the Kra’Kto’Sui stopped just before her, head and shoulders bigger than her as it peered down with strangely shaped oblong eyes. His wet flesh slowly changing color while she watched.
“[I know. This one… came from the Cathedral… We did not see her enter… Curious.]” The xeno’s strange accent of decktongue was slow… pondering.
“[I have something to sell.]” She announced and let go of her knife to open her pack and pull out the toy in its case. She hadn’t fully pulled it free when the Kra’Kto’Sui raised a big tentacle to swipe it from her hands.
“Jiji!” It gasped out and stepped back.
“[Hey! That’s mine!]” She growled and reached out, but the guard besides her finally pulled his gun free of his pants making her stop in place. He hadn’t aimed it at her yet…
“Did you get this from him?” The big tentacle waved the toy in her face as she noticed he spoke in human. How did she play this?
“[My human isn’t good. What’s he asking?]” She looked at the guard.
“[Did you get this from the bartershop a few streets over?]” He gestured with his pistol out the window.
“[It was left to me in a final farewell gifting.]” If she considered it a trade for the rose that was true enough.
“[Hey hey, death ever profits doesn’t it?]” Even as the guard smirked she glared at his rude response.
“[Is she the trinket seller?]” Arana returned her focus to the collector as he addressed another female Davari at a desk.
“[No. I haven’t seen her before.]” Were they watching the bartershop? What was this? Did he really hate that guy this much? Well they must not be actively watching it since they had no idea she’d just come from there…
“[How much?]” The collector looked back at Arana as he held up the case with the toy robot inside.
“[I know what it’s worth.]” She announced and held her chin high. He’d have to make the first offer.
“[Get four thousand from the safe.]” The guard besides her was obviously surprised as he gasped.
“[What?! For a toy robot? C’mon bossman I’ll just shoot her and-]” The colector smacked the guard across his horns with another big tentacle. “[OW! Hey! What-]”
“[Do not be so rude to guests! Get it! Now!]” The last word was snapped out as the guard scurried away from the Kra’Kto’Sui. Arana just held her ground, one hand gripping her pack very tight. Four thousand? Clay had said thirty six hundred! Play it cool…
“[You should get better help.]” The Kra’Kto’Sui leaned forward, towering above her a moment. Maybe she had played it too cool…
“[They are zealous. But loyal.]” Out behind him Arana watched the guard open a safe that had to be filled with tens of thousands… hundreds of thousands of credits! The stacks of bills! What sort of place was this?! But he returned with an envelope and handed it to her. She snatched it from him and looked inside. She’d never held so many credits in her life… Sure she’d had more in her account at one point but to hold it like this? Her dream neared…
“[The transaction is complete. You leave now.]” Arana barely had time to understand what was being said as a tentacle pushed her back into the lift, pressed the button for the ground floor, and quickly whipped back out before the doors closed. She had four thousand credits… Four thousand! She couldn’t help herself as she jumped and raised a fist in the air, her tail whipping back and forth like mad. Her landing was a bit awkward as the lift kept descending but she managed it and then quickly fixed her clothing and pulled her pack back over a shoulder.
The moment the door opened she was moving. Focused. Head down. Out past the two old Dashings players, yet again ignoring the acrid smoke of their drugs. She paid no mind to the Ravex checkpoint. Right to the Cathedral. Praise by Swagin! She had triumphed over the harlot! Hope no more! She had cash! She couldn’t contain the continued wagging of her tail as she scurried along the back of the cathedral yet again. Just as she exited the main door she didn’t stop, she just reached out to drop a fifty on the still “sleeping” Jipasi soldier and kept moving.
Don’t run. Just… walk quick. Head down. Focused. She was barely containing her breathing now as she had her eyes set on the sign for the pawn shop. So close… just half a street away. “Hey!” Don’t stop. Don’t look. “Hey! You! Lady! With the bag!” She hesitated. No! Worse she looked and saw a group of human soldiers. They were by that box hauler they’d looked at earlier. She was stuck in place. Did they want her money? She was so close! Don’t let them take it! Run! But there had to be a dozen of them spread out around the street. They could gun her down in an instant…
“Yes?” She did her best to stay calm.
“Is this your van?” She frowned with confusion as he pointed at the boxhauler.
“No.” She shook her head.
“Do you know whose van it is?” The soldier asked next.
“No.” She shook her head again.
“Damn.” The soldier sighed and looked over at another nearby. “Sarge we don’t know who the van belongs to.”
“I can see that you idiot! Lady you’re free to go.” The moment the other soldier waved her on Arana scurried on into the store. Though she saw a Jipasi on a scooter driving up the street stop just before the door. Arana was surprised to see him drive right past the soldiers without a care in the world, but they didn’t seem to mind him either.
“Hey, are you the passenger for Partizania Rai?” The Jipasi asked just as she set her hand on the door to the pawnshop. What now?! She was so close!
“Yes.” She prepared to bolt inside should he try to grab her or… really appear to be any kind of threat. But the Jipasi was a bit smaller than her and she found it hard to imagine he was a mugger.
“I’m supposed to take you to the ship. You ready?” A scooter? For her? Had Clay called him?
“Ah… give me a moment.” She started to open the door.
“Oh wait!” Arana almost screamed in frustration. She was so close! “Pack of strawberry bubblegum.” She looked over in confusion as the Jipasi held out a credit, waving the bill at her. After a moment she snatched it from his fingers and finally went in.
The moment the door closed behind her she let out a heavy sigh of relief. She didn’t see Clay behind the stronglass yet… The temperseal case with the rose was still on the counter… She could snatch it and run… Instead she shook the thought from her head and walked up to tap on the stronglass. “Clay?”
“How’d it go?” She saw him step out from a door in the back just after she called out his name.
“Great! I got fort housand!” She held up the envelope of credits.
“Wow… I’m assuming you mean four thousand?” He asked and she nodded fervently. “He really wanted it bad… Lucky you… Maybe I should have gotten Tiyava to do it after all…” He rubbed his chin in thought.
“It’s too late! I already sold it! No takebacksies!” She insisted. “This is proper human term? No takebacksies yes?”
“Yes, that’s the proper human term.” Clay nodded and laughed. “I called my friends on the ship. They should send a scooter over to take you directly to their berth in the spaceport. They’re itching to keep a schedule.”
“They’re already here outside.” Arana set the Jipasis’ one credit in the little revolving stronglass container for Clay as well as the temperseal case with the rose. Then she peeled out the rest of the credits she needed to pay for the ticket and travel pass. “One pack of strawberry bubblegum. One ticket to Partizani Rai.”
“Oh they sent Nin? Well… you’ll get there fast. If you survive. Take my advice, don’t open your eyes.” This made Arana frown as she looked back at the door.
“Why? What’s wrong with him?” Now she was worried.

2020.07.11 04:56 Prokonsul_Piotrus You too can help improve the Shadowrun wiki! Here's how

Problem: the English Shadowrun wiki http://shadowrun.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page has over 5k articles, impressive - but German at http://shadowhelix.pegasus.de/Hauptseite is more than twice as big!
Solution: translating articles is very easy - you don't even need to know any German, and you don't need to learn any code, or apply for permissions :) You can translate a German wiki article and add a new entry to English wiki in just a minute! If just a few people help a bit and translate a few dozen articles over the next few weeks we will make wonderful progress.
Extra info (TL;DR): There is also a French wiki at http://shadowrun.fwiki/ and a Polish one at https://shadowrun.fandom.com/pl/wiki/Strona_g%C5%82%C3%B3wna ; they are not bad at all, but the German is considered the best. Oh, there are actually two German wikis, as there is also the http://shadowiki.de/Hauptseite. And there is even another English wiki at https://srqure.fandom.com/wiki/Shadowrun_Quick_Reference_Wikia which needs integration, too). I am focusing on the main German Wiki here, but you can totally try to copy stuff from those other sites as well.
As an added bonus for learning how to this: have you ever wondered how to edit Wikipedia? Now you know. The software is 90% compatible, and if you can edit a wikia/fandom page, you can edit Wikipedia too.
How-to:
Step 1: Find an article to translate
TL;DR: This is not as easy as comparing the German to English Wikipedia, since the Shadowrun wikis, unfortunately, are not run on the same servers and nobody cared to design bots or such to synchronize stuff, so interwiki links (i.e links that connect one language wiki to another) have to be added manually, and are not always present. So the methods I will describe below are not 100% fullproof and can miss something or produce an occasional false positive. Still, they work 9 times out of 10.
Option 1: Go to https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Special:UncategorizedPages?limit=500&offset=0 This listing contains over 500 articles that contain only the title and list of sources (index), and are linked to a German article which has more content. Probablyb best to ignore the Source: entries unless you know what they are for.
Option 2: Go to https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Category%3AArticle_stubs . It contains much fewer articles but it effectively serves the same purpose as the list in Option 1.
Option 3: Yet another list of very short articles on English SR wiki is here: https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Special:ShortPages?limit=500&offset=0 Just scroll a bit down beyond those pointless dates (that should be unlinked)
Option 4: Check the requested articles in here and see if they have an equivalent on the German wiki https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Special:WantedPages?limit=500&offset=0
Option 5: Browse German wiki and look for articles that don't link to English wiki. (You can see the links, if present, in the bottom left menu. For example, https://shadowhelix.de/Polen links to http://shadowrun.wikia.com/wiki/Poland). Now, having a link does not mean that the English article doesn't need translation, so you could still check if any content needs to be moved. But if a link is missing entirely, this means that either the English article is missing entirely - or that nobody connected them.
Extra info: how to add those interwiki links if it bugs you that articles are not connected? Super simple! In code-view, just add this code to an article (preferably on the very bottom of the page). For example, if you want to connect English article on Alabaster Maiden to German, [[de:Alabaster Maiden]]. If you want to connect German to English, the code is [[en:Alabaster Maiden]].
Step 2: Translate!
No knowledge of German required!
Optional step: create or login in to a wikia/fandom account. It is NOT required, but it takes just a minute, and if you don't do this, your IP will be publicly logged, you won't get access to all the tools, and it will be tough for anyone to leave you a message.
Substep 2.1 On English SR wiki click the new page button in the top right, it's right next to the number of pages. Enter the name of the page you want to create (the layout options are pretty much irrelevant) and press the 'next' button in the bottom right.
Substep 2.2. Just copy-paste German text into a google translate box at https://translate.google.com/?hl=en&tab=TT&authuser=0 and then copypaste the results back to the English page.
Extra info: TL;DR Note: if you are copying a text with hyperlinks or footnotes, it may be easier in the long run to copy edit-source text (with code) and paste it likewise. To access source text on de wiki, click the Quelltext anzeigen tab. On En wiki, switch between the source and visual tabs in the editing mode.
Optional substep 2.3 Proofread the text for minor grammar errors and such. These days German to English TL is near perfect, but the software may still have trouble with some shadowrun jargon or a weirder sentence here and there.
Optional substep 2.4 Add hyperlinks (blue links) just like they are present in the German text. How to do this - very easy, see the guide/video at https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Help:Links
Optional subtep 2.5 Add references (if present), index-version. Just make sure to copy the list of English references from German Index to the English Index section (which you may need to create, it is very easy, just add a line == Index == if in source mode, or use the headings menu if in visual mode). A simple copy and paste from visual edit mode in de wiki to visual edit mode in en wiki will work, but it won't produce the 'pretty' list. You may have some trouble formatting the list, and it's ok to leave it a bit ugly, and fix it later if you learn how to (and care to do so), or let someone else fix it. As long as the book name and page ranges are copied, pretty formatting is secondary. If you want to learn how to make a pretty index code, I will describe it below, but again, feel free to skip it:
The pretty code for index looks for example like this:
*{{srcx2}} {{srcs2072}}, 44-45, 198
The star makes a bullet entry, the squiggly brackets invoke templates. The scrx template accepts four parameters, ordinals 1-4, as explained with pictures here https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Template%3ASrcx And the most important scr template links to the source book. The list of abbreviations is here https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Template%3ASrc/doc%2Fabbreviations It may be missing some newer books. I am not the template guy and if you have questions about how to add a missing book or such, either ask ShxLoki at https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:ShxLoki (I don't know his reddit handle) or figure out the code (which is beyond me; so I just ask him for help if I have trouble with this template).
Optional substep 2.6. References, footnote version. This is the only mildly difficult part to all of this, and if you want to skip it, nobody will blame you. Anyway, the official guide is here https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Help:Cite but my simple guide is this: copy and paste source text (with code), as I explained in an extra note a bit earlier.
If the referencing part seems like a pain, just ignore it. It's the text that matters!
Of course, you can add text that is not present in the German wiki, and even create articles from scratch, ignoring the German wiki, but that will take more time, and the above guide is for the quick and dirty translation, where you can translate a short article like I just did with https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/0111011001 in a minute or so. Once you know what buttons to click it is really just a simple series of copy pastes a few times and that's it.
Extra info about copyright (TL;DR): Copying and translation as explained here are not copyright violations. English SR and German SR are on the same license: https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Shadowrun_Wiki:Copyrights , https://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl-1.3.html so copying is ok, although you should provide attribution in the edit summary which almost nobody does so - shrug. I didn't bother to check the other wikis, but realistically, nobody cares. Anyway, all of those sites violate copyright to some extent (primarily of the game copyright holder, copyright explicitly does not allow creation of derivative works like game aids, or, heck, your own gaming scenarios, but all game publishers ignore this for obvious reasons), and that's all I will say about it. If anyone wants to be smarty pants about this by saying "wuuut, making my own adventure makes me a pirate? That's crazy!" just read this first https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivative_work We are all pirates and nobody cares. Anyway it's just a TL;DR digression, lol.
Extra info: Final word of caution if you decide just to write articles based on your game knowledge and experiences (instead of translating or using book sources): please do not add non-canon material outside dedicated articles (https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Category:NonCanon).
Disclaimer: I labelled it as "Wyrm Talks" because it's important, and per https://www.reddit.com/Shadowrun/comments/3n9eai/wyrm_talks_how_do_they_work/ why not.
If anyone read all of this, you spend more time than translating a simple article would take so... just do it :)
Thanks for helping!

2020.06.14 23:35 Lesan007 Date ideas for a first date?

Hello there!
I'll try to keep this simple. I recently met a really nice girl and we set up a date next Saturday. I can't think of a good date regardless of any disability, but I thought it could be a nice gesture to came up with something she could enjoy as much as possible. If you guys would be willing to help I'd be greateful, any tips are appreciated!
We live in a country where most of the Covid restrictions are lifted, while I know a tiny bit of sign language now, we comunicate via notebook when in person (she says she finds my scratches cute..) so light is going to be important. We plan to go in the afternoon (I pick her up at 2pm). She can understand spoken word but only if she really tries and the person speaks slowly. She can speak, but has trouble with long words and separating hard and soft consonants (like d and t, hope you understand what I mean).
Apparently, she likes birds a lot (has a bird themed necklace and pen), but hates to go to nature since she is allergic to polen and fears she will lose her hearing aid each time she sneezes (side question: Is it possible that sneezing hurts her in any way? She only sneezed thrice in front of me but each time she had a very painful look on her face right after)
Anyway, thank you for reading this wall (and sorry, I just can't keep things short) and thank you for any and all answers!

2019.10.13 23:14 LoaDead Can someone help me identify my ancestors place of birth?

Hi my Polish friends!
I am reaching out to you to help my grandfather in his research of our family ancestry. My great grandfather migrated to Denmark with his parents in the early 1900s and we have gathered many details about the parents so far through different documents we could dig up, however, we are having trouble reading and identifying this specific city from a hand written engagement document.
Picture EDIT: Rest of the page in Danish
The first word appears to be a city, but after researching citynames that look similar we haven't found many leads. It could be a city that no longer exists, perhaps.
We have tried to make sense of the text and the closest we have gotten is something along the lines of "SE__ITOWICE".
The next word might also be a city. It appears to read something like "PIŠTOR WLOFLA" and underneath "WROK? POLEN (Poland in Danish).
It's a far reach, but I don't know where else to get help with this. Hopefully someone out there can recognize these names and give us a lead!
Thank you in advance!
EDIT & FINDINGS SO FAR:
I really admire you all. In no time, I have gotten so much help. I really appreciate it so much!
The two best possibilites at the moment seem to be either:
"Semikowice" for what today is known as "Siemkowice" as suggested by throwaway_londyn
or (more likely?)
"Śmiłowice" suggested by hedgeho9 and further justified by mrokjakchuj and asdvnjkfaqweavjklajk on /Polska by finding evidence here suggesting a connection to Włocławek, which appears to be the third word in the document.
Currently, asdvnjkfaqweavjklajk, has been doing some great research and given me the ability to contact the archives in Włocławek, that may have additional information about an entry that appears to be the same person. We will be requesting the documents, and I will return with any leads. You deserve to know if we get any promising results. I can't believe how helpful you have all been, and I am super grateful for you all. I couldn't imagine a better way of proving the power of the internet to my grandfather ;)

2019.05.05 18:44 Nag0ri I have a weird feeling about the missing person cases of Rebecca Reusch & Patrycja Zawadzka

Maybe I'm being paranoid but I just read about Patrycja's case and I think it's just such a weird coincidence that she disappeared in Berlin where Rebecca disappeared too. Rebecca allegedly is in Poland at the moment while Patrycja is in Berlin, Rebecca's hometown. I guess it's just a weird thought that came to my mind but I wanted to share it. What do you think about it?

Rebecca's case:
Chronology Rebecca: https://www.allmystery.de/wiki/136934/rebecca-reusch (it's in German)
Another article with recent updates: https://www.merkur.de/welt/rebecca-reusch-vermisst-faellt-naechstes-indiz-gegen-schwager-weg-zr-12071612.html (also in German)
A short article: https://www.thelocal.de/20190319/still-no-clues-in-search-for-rebecca-reusch (in English)
Thread from Missing_Person : https://www.reddit.com/Missing_Person/comments/au921l/missing_rebecca_reusch_15_berlin_please_pray_fo

A summary of the case: 15-year-old Rebecca Reusch disappeared on February 18 and is missing since then. Her sister's husband is a suspect and got arrested 2 times (he was discharged but is still a person of interest). He became a suspect after analyzing Rebecca's phone. The data suggested that she didn't leave her sister's house and the only other person there with her was her brother-in-law. There was a controversy with her phone being connected to the wifi at a time where she should've been at school (her brother-in-law claimed she was gone when he woke up around 8 am) but she never arrived there. After presenting the case on the tv show Aktenzeichen XY (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsZVOWQ7btQ this is the episode), many people yielded information.
Rebecca's mother mentioned that Rebecca made the acquaintance of someone called Max or Maximilian online (Instagram). Max'/Maximilian's profile was deleted shortly after her disappearance.
Rebecca's sister Vivien posted a lot about her sister's diappearance on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/viiiivaaa_/?utm_source=ig_embed) and she formed search parties to find her (the search parties weren't successful).
The police thinks that she might be dead but her family does not think so + they support the sister's husband. The most recent clues lead to Poland where she was allegedly seen with a man - but there are no new leads at the moment.

Patrycja's case:
Article from the Gazeta: http://wiadomosci.gazeta.pl/wiadomosci/7,114883,24710880,zaginela-17-letnia-patrycja-sieradzka-ostatni-raz-dzwonila.html
Article from the Berliner Kurier: https://www.berliner-kurier.de/berlin/polizei-und-justiz/mysterioeser-anruf-aus-berlin--patrycija--17--vermisst--polizei-ermittelt-32471608
Article from Tag 24: https://www.tag24.de/nachrichten/polen-hamburg-patrycja-sieranska-seit-wochen-vermisst-wer-hat-patrycja-17-gesehen-patrycji-zawadzkiej-1056003

Since I just read about it, I don't have that much information.
A summary of the case: Patrycja Zawadzka (17) went from Szelków to Warsaw to date someone.
The day after (April 25), she called her mother with a borrowed phone. She was crying and informed her mother about her current location: Berlin. Suddenly, the call was interrupted. The mother called the phone again but reached the phone owner instead of her daughter. He told her that Patrycja was accompanied by an adolescent man. Apparently they had an argument.
Latest clues are leading to Hamburg. The police from Poland is currently working on the case with the police from Hamburg.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any articles in English.

What do you think about the cases?
Do you think that there might be a connection?
Do you think they will find both girls alive and well?

If anyone has more information on these cases, I'm willing to enhance my post! :)

2019.04.23 20:37 r_tombot March 6th, 2019 - /r/wsbk: the height of superbike championship racing.

/wsbk

1,708 Superbike Riders for 7 Years!
/wsbk is a subreddit all about the World Superbike Championship, the premier series of Superbike championships. From humble beginnings. This year we have many changes in the series with adding another race you can get up to date with all the going ons below and in the side bar of our subreddit.
Alongside established names of the category, many are the emerging figures that will debut in the new campaign, which will begin on February 23-24 at Phillip Island.
Jonathan Rea will defend his 2018 victory as well as hunting his fifth back to back title and with that another new astonishing record. As always, the Northern Irishman will ride with the Kawasaki Racing WorldSBK Team, alongside new teammate Leon Haslam who had already competed in WorldSBK in the past, who in 2018 won the British Superbikes Championship.
A new duo will form the lineup for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team. Sharing the garage with consolidated Chaz Davies, there will be Spanish Alvaro Bautista, who will debut in the premier class aboard the all-new Ducati Panigale V4R after an extensive career spent in the MotoGP paddock.
Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark will continue to ride for the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK team. Other two factory supported Yamaha bikes will be added to the grid with newly crowned 2018 WorldSSP Champion Sandro Cortese and Italian star
Marco Melandri riding aboard the two bikes run by the new GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team.
Also 2018 STK1000 Champion Markus Reiterberger will move over to WorldSBK, forming a duo with Tom Sykes in the new partnership between Shaun Muir Racing and BWM Motorrad WorldSBK.
2019 will see the comeback of another illustrious name as Japanese Ryuichi Kiyonari will join the new Honda Corporate supported Moriwaki – Althea HONDA Racing team alongside Leon Camier.
Another new Honda rider is Italian Alessandro Del Bianco - Althea MIE Racing Team who will debut in WorldSBK at the age of only 21.
Independent Kawasaki riders Leandro Mercado (Orelac VerdNatura) and Toprak Razgatlioglu - Turkish Puccetti Racing will stick with their 2018 teams while Jordi Torres will compete with the ZX-10RR of Team Pedercini Racing.
Michael Ruben Rinaldi will race full-time in the top category with the Ducati of the Barni Racing Team, while Eugene Laverty will be in the saddle of Team GoEleven’s new Panigale V4R.
One of the most exciting developments of the 2019 pre-season has been the announcement that both Honda and BMW will compete in the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship with factory-backed teams, joining Kawasaki, Ducati and Yamaha on the grid next season. All five are due to face off for the first time at Phillip Island, and taking their past successes into account all cards will be off the table. Let’s take a look at the high points in WorldSBK of the five marques that will do battle for the title next season.
BMW: The German giant has only been fully involved in WorldSBK one time in the past, a successful five-year spell from 2009 to 2013 that saw them compete for WorldSBK’s top prizes. After three years of bringing the bike up to speed with Troy Corser, Ruben Xaus (2009-2010) and Leon Haslam (2011), BMW Motorrad’s big break came in 2012 with Marco Melandri who managed six race wins and third position in the championship standings, with teammate Haslam adding several podiums more to the team’s name. BMW was second in the manufacturers standings, just missing out on the top prize.
Melandri received a new teammate in 2013 in the form of Chaz Davies, and both men finished the season with three wins apiece and inside the top five. That was the last official BMW partnership to compete in WorldSBK – Tom Sykes and Markus Reiterberger will pick up the baton with gold in their sights.
Ducati: How does one choose a single moment for the most successful manufacturer in WorldSBK history? The Italian marque has managed – be it through factory or private teams – 17 riders championships, 17 constructor’s titles, 341 race wins, 890 podium finishes… All of that, with a nearly uninterrupted presence in the World Superbike paddock. The highlight of this unparalleled journey would perhaps be the 13 manufacturers titles that the Borgo Panigale marque won between 1991 and 2004 – with a runner-up spot in 1997 to complete the near-perfect run. During that time, six world champions were crowned on Ducati twins: Doug Polen, Troy Corser, Troy Bayliss, Neil Hodgson, James Toseland and, of course, Carl Fogarty. And it all started with Polen’s magical season of 1991: 17 wins and 4 second positions in 24 races.
Honda: Ducati’s big rival since the birth of World Superbike, the Japanese manufacturer left its bikes in private hands from the 2003 season forwards. Before that, HRC competed several seasons in the class with incredible success: John Kocinski achieved their first factory-supported title in 1997. Another American hero in Colin Edwards extended their achievements into the new millennium, sealing the title in 2000 and 2002. And while his efforts were not officially supported by Honda, James Toseland’s epic 2007 title win with the Ten Kate Honda team merits its share of plaudits.
Kawasaki: The green machines have been the undisputed kings of World Superbike in the past five years, which has also been their most successful spell in the series. Titles in 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 – together with the manufacturers crown in the last four seasons – have confirmed them as the top dogs of WorldSBK, with Tom Sykes and particularly Jonathan Rea the men to beat this decade.
But these are by no means Kawasaki’s entire history in WorldSBK: during the 1990s, motorbikes made by the Japanese titan kickstarted the careers of several WorldSBK stars, including Akira Yanagawa, Anthony Gobert, Aaron Slight or 1993 World Champion Scott Russell (their first title in WorldSBK).
Yamaha: The third and final Japanese manufacturer on this list and a reliable marque in the world of motorcycling racing, Yamaha machinery has had recent success at all levels of WorldSBK, most recently with the three race wins achieved by Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes last seasons.
Yamaha reached their peak performance in WorldSBK in the late 2000s. Noriyuki Haga missed out on the world title in 2007 by just two points, but the combined efforts of the Japanese star and Troy Corser granted Yamaha their first manufacturers trophy. Haga was also on the losing end of a title battle in 2009, but this time it worked in Yamaha’s favour: Ben Spies roared ahead to their sole riders championship in WorldSBK by just six points.
