Yeah, Like Ancient Crystal and Vortex said. It has to do with titles and (The In Relation to blank).

For example, when I name my ship "The Fires of Prometheus" I added the Of to signifies the item held by the person named.
So if I instead went with "The Fires Prometheus" I end up with some fire that was named Prometheus. :roll: :roll:

I know this can be trace to the Old England of the English language root.
With the house lords, and their respected titles. The Duke of Buckingham to name just one example.

Thank you, guys!
At least in Spanish we have a similar construction with 'de', and maybe it is used in Russian too with 'о', for example the translation of "Of Mice and Men" seems to be "О мышах и людях".
That's what I thought till this day, actually.
"of" is like "about". "Book/story about mice and men".

For some reason, my building's network doesn't allow me to visit pastelforum, but I can access sites like Reddit with no issue. I can only visit via my mobile data.
I certainly could, and eventually I will

That's strange, to be certain. It... might be an artefact of the somewhat nonstandard DNS setup, but I really don't see how. We might want to take this to the dev/bug thread if we're going to do troubleshooting, but to begin with, what sort of building is this?

I'm posting this here and if you have any further suggestions, we can move it to another thread.

My browser shows me this when I try access the site through the WiFi of my block.

Btw, I stay in a university campus doing an internship in the nearby school. So, they have something of a shared network I guess (?) and it counts this website as not safe for visiting?

Alright, yes, I'd like to have closer look at this. Continued here.
