Title: Myspace Romanovs
Post by: Taren on September 30, 2006, 04:17:54 PM
Lately I've noticed a trend on myspace: people roleplaying as various members of the Romanov family and other royals. It's kind of cute actually, seeing them comment on each other's pages. Here are some examples:

Xenia: http://www.myspace.com/84050885 (http://www.myspace.com/84050885)
Felix: http://www.myspace.com/103751018 (http://www.myspace.com/103751018)
Nicholas II: http://www.myspace.com/48558701 (http://www.myspace.com/48558701)
Alexandra: http://www.myspace.com/99807455 (http://www.myspace.com/99807455)
Olga Nikolaievna: http://www.myspace.com/olgaromanov (http://www.myspace.com/olgaromanov)
Tatiana Nikolaievna: http://www.myspace.com/tatianaromanov (http://www.myspace.com/tatianaromanov)
and various and sundry other royals that you can see on their friends lists....

There are so many mistakes! Go to the NII one's friend space and click the profile for GD Olga. It labels a Tatiana picture as Olga! haha. They're really funny. Especially the survey on the Nicholas one.

I know -the mistakes are everywhere. I corrected the guy that made Henry VIII's profile (http://www.myspace.com/kinghenrytudor (http://www.myspace.com/kinghenrytudor)) and told him that one of his pics was actually Richard III, but he's never changed it. The survey, though is hilarious! "Current location: purgatory/hell","Do you want to get married? Again?", "In the past month have you been Dumped? NO - I dump people, not the other way round - and they end up with their head dumped in a basket". I'm just surprised of the royals on there that people even have the slightest knowledge of. An Alexei profile (http://www.myspace.com/alexeiromanov (http://www.mypace.com/alexeiromanov)) even has a link here, so maybe some of our own members are creating profiles.

What really cracks me up is the music some of these folks have put on their profiles. The only one I've run across so far that's halfway appropriate to the historical character is Marie Fedorovna -- Strauss's Voices of Spring waltz.

Yeah, I haven't found any of mine on myspace, but if you search for OTMA on webshots one of mine is the very first to come up. Along with many other stolen photos.  :-\

It is interesting..but I would rather be debating royalty on here. I have never even been on myspace actually, but I can't figure out how to post pictures to here, so I am not sure I could figure it out. ;)

frankly i find... those kind of sites a bit... in conventional.

you could get really hurt on those kind of sites.
but i do find it terriblely funny that they would use Royalty.

in conventional?  ???

Honestly, I think the only way you can get hurt on a site like myspace is if you were dumb enough to meet someone you didn't know, that you met through there. It all depends on how you use the site. If you want to talk to people you don't know, you add them. If you don't, you just add friends. Sorry to rant -I just heard of another report of someone blaming myspace for their kid running away. I've only ever met one person from myspace in person. He went to school with my friend, went to the movies with another friend, and we met in Wal-Mart. If your kid met up with someone in a motel that they didn't know, you probably should have parented him or her better. Ok -rant over.

Imperial Angel, if you ever decide to join myspace I'd be glad to help you out. Trust me, it's ridiculously easy. Otherwise, half the boneheads that are on now wouldn't be on it.  :P Remember what Barney always said: don't talk to strangers.  ;D

Well, I just don't have much interest.. I guess I like intellectual stuff and history and royalty and don't have much in common with people who don't like that.People blame many things on sites like that, but the truth is we should all be responsible, and if people were things like that woudn't happen. Parents can always find something to blame whatever their kid does on rather than their own parenting. I love sites like this, only I wish there  were more. I think a site like this is a great way to meet people who share your interests. :)

responsiblity takes a big part in one of those sites.

oh yes i adore these kinds of sites as well.

What I meant was different, I was talking about forums( like this one) not social networking sites such as myspace, which I have never even been on. I have no interest in such sites..my mistake. I can keep my mind on history but not on anything else these days, it seems. ;)

It's all about html coding and whatnot -like each color has its own number. I used this site: http://www.myspaceeditor.org/ (http://www.myspaceeditor.org/) because I'm no good at doing coding. Plus, I just wanted different colors and nothing big and sparkly that would make the page load really slow or freeze up. If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to PM me.  :)

Holly and me made different pages for each of OTMA on MySpace. We put alot of work into it, and this is the result:

Olga Romanova (http://www.myspace.com/olga_romanova) - Made by Robby.
Tatiana Romanova (http://www.myspace.com/tatiana_nicholaievna) - Made by Holly
Maria Romanova (http://www.myspace.com/maria_romanova) - Made by Robby
Anastasia Romanova (http://www.myspace.com/anastasia_nicholaievna) - Made by Holly
