As with the name Anthologica, the etymology of Isharia is a matter of hotboiling discussions that end in broken families and costly divorces.

Almost all scholars agree that the name is of Swahili origin, from hara "district, quarter" or "to be terribly frightened, to defecate, to purge" + -ishi "to live, to exist; to dwell", thus meaning "place to be terribly frightened" or "poo dwelling", in its primitive form *Haraishi. The elements were reversed shortly after the place was founded as a city, thus becoming Ishihara.

The etymology of Anthologica is a matter of occasional family discussion and barfights in the country which arises little to much controversy depending on the mob's mood.

Some scholars have suggested that it comes from ant (eusocial insects of the family Formicidae) + hology "science of holes" + –ica "collection of things (related to the combining root)", so the name would mean "collective scientific study of ant holes". Others suggest that ant– is in fact a short version of anti– "against" used before vowel or h, the toponym thus meaning "collection of (people) against the scientific study of holes".

Long years have passed like swift draughts since we saw you on Middle-earth. Farewell, thief of magic rings! Anxious guardian of mystical stones! Sleeper android of obscure goals! Hellish masonic ripper!

Maybe thou shalt find Valimar! Maybe even thou shalt find it! Farewell!

quoting warbear, Foreigner, St Petersburg, Russia:
Every time I try to upload an avatar I recieve an error message. What should I do?
And yes, it's still impossible to write to Rhetorica.

Hello warbear, welcome to Anthologica (Annie, for friends).

Queen Rhetorica seems to have disappeared for a few days, so I suggest you to be patient. I had problems to upload avatar images in the past, and the problem I had is that I tried to upload .png images that were a little too heavy, it seems. If you were trying to upload a .png image, I suggest you to upload the same image but in .jpg format.

If that isn't the problem, or you still have problems uploading the avatar, I suggest you to wait a little more!
