Hello and welcome to TheKnow
Database Round-Up 19 ^^ Thanks so much to everyone who has become a member, started watching or submitted to the database since last time!
has received a few requests.
Hello! A friend who isn't on dA and doesn't speak English well has asked me to post here in her place.
She's looking into traditional Russian fighting styles, mostly cut and thrust weapon. The original date isn't specified, but it should still be known in modern times, so nothing mystic.
Any specific weapons, typical strategies etc.?
Thanks in advance for the help from both her and me.
is also hoping to make contact with someone who is deaf without speech to gain insight into their everyday life: frequent problems and dealing with certain situations etc.
3. And GoldenNocturna
is looking for someone of Peruvian descent. She needs some information on Peruvian culture, Amerindian and/or Mestizo preferred.
If you think you can help, please contact the requesters directly via note.
And if anyone else is considering making a request for assistance with their writing research, please don’t hesitate. You can make a request at any time—leave a comment on whatever is the current journal or on the group profile, or send us a note. It isn’t necessary to be a member or a watcher to make a request (or to answer someone else's request), but it would be lovely if you joined in!
Here are the latest submissions to the database:
HealthI am on the Autism Spectrum
is on the Autism Spectrum and was diagnosed at 13 (that's considered later in life by today's standards).Epileptic
has epilepsy and tonic-clonic seizures, the kind where people go unconscious and shake.ADHD and OCD
was diagnosed with ADHD and OCD during her freshman year of college. She has taken medications for both and thus can provide information on symptoms, medicines, and side-effects.
spent a year and a half considering himself asexual. He raised awareness for the asexual community and has plenty of knowledge on the subject.I have Synesthesia
has sound-color synesthesia, also known as chromesthesia. He sees shapes and colors and associates them with the timbre of sounds (not noises). He also has mirror-touch and mirror-pain synesthesia, meaning if he sees someone else get touched, he feels it on his body where they are being touched and if he sees someone with a wound or sees someone get injured, he will feel pain (sometimes similar, if he knows what their pain feels like) where their injury is as well. He has a wide knowledge of synesthesia and synesthesia-related resources.
has been expelled from schools and been in psychiatric units/wards and had a childhood where he frequently challenged authority. He can provide plenty of information on what contributed to his personal troubled childhood.LGBTQ+ and asexual terminology/models
: From heavy involvement in LGBTQ+ activism and communities, TheChesherCat
considers herself up to date (to about a weekly basis) on terminology, labels, and theories/models used in the LGBTQ community at large and especially very deeply in asexual communities. Feel free to contact her at any time with questions—or if you'd just like a good discussion.
If any of those subjects would be useful for your writing research, please contact the submitter directly by sending them a note. If you want to make a submission to the database yourself, the information is on our profile
If the database or requests system helps you in writing something, we would like to put the finished article in our favourites. So, if you post your piece on dA and would like it to feature in our collection, please send us a link! We’re thinking about featuring the stories in our journals too.
A note for anyone passing by: we understand some people may not want their details permanently on show in the database, but may feel comfortable talking to requesters privately via note. In that case, please consider watching TheKnow
so you can keep an eye on the journals and what’s being looked for.
