When people say 'Robocitan' they immediately put a picture together in their minds, a picture that inspires trustworthiness and friendliness: a picture of an Experimental Robot. Doesn't matter who the robot is, if it's a Leader's face or that of an ordinary citizen of Robocity: people associate Robocity with Experimental Robots. In a way, that would be true, since upon its foundation, our city was inhabited of Exp. Robots only. BUT. With the years passing, Robocity has began to get intercultural and not so one-faced anymore. Military Robots, humans and ordinary robots of any kind have come to live here, becoming active part of our society. Thus, the simplistic equation of Robocity = Exp. Robots has no meaning anymore. And even with that, outsiders still make that kind of association (and mistake).

So, how could we possibly define a Robocity citizen? A Robocitan, as we have come to call ourselves? It surely isn't easy to answer such a question. I believe, though, that the answer isn't in any physical feature, nor in any type/species of our people. A possible answer lays in the common ideas and mentality that we Robocitans share.

To list a few of them:
- view of the social community as a family
- belief in the preciousness of life
- team work for the well-being of the whole community
- fight for everyone's fundamental rights
- refuse of any kind of discrimination and exclusion
- sharing of resources wherever is possible

That is what I think a Robocitan is: someone who believes in life and family, who loves sharing and helping, who refuses to discriminate and being discriminated. Robocitans are not saints, but they are people fully aware of the preciousness of life, and that it should be protected no matter the cost.

I hope anyone who will read this short essay will start re-thinking of his/her own concept of Robocitan. We are much more than just robots. And not only robots.
Portray of a Robocitan
This is a short essay I had to write for school on November 26th of 2008, and which I thought to share :)

I, Rayner Dorian Allen, am the official Robocity presence on DeviantART! =D

That rocks my socks, guys, and even my boots, if you ask me.

This is what the new Robocity Leaders (we had elections in April this year!) mailed to me:

Dear Rayner D. Allen,

We have looked up Robocity contents all over DeviantART to see how our presence was faring on the artist network, and we were very pleased with the work you did along these six years. You put Robocity in a good light with your Deviations and Journal entries, so I hope you will be happy to accept our invitation to make your account as the official Robocity presence on DeviantART and the nomination of Assistant for the quinquennial 2014-2019.

Please, help us help Robocity grow and thrive!

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

  • Mood: Pride
You surround me with your motherly arms
You gift me any day with innocent joy
You keep me safe against any harms
Your teach me that a friend is more precious than a toy.

You are Robocity, the place where I was born
Teaching me how life can be more painful than a torn
Sometimes… but I never loose the hope and the love
Because those are the only forces that make Life move.
Robocity 13th Anniversary Poem
A poem written for the 13th Anniversary of the foundation of Robocity, on February 15th, 2007 ^^ Dad, mom and Jazz praised me for it! X3

Today’s February 15th of 2008. Fourteen years have passed since Robocity was built to give refuge to abandoned robots. I wasn’t even born, back then, but this is my city, this is the world I learned to love and appreciate, a place I feel I belong to. Today’s the 14th Anniversary of the Foundation of Robocity, and I’m just a five years old child. I wish I was born far before 2002, so to see it grow, but this didn’t happen, so I can only share what my few years of life let me share.

Robocity is famous between outsiders. People (humans) come over to visit almost every day, some of them are scared by the sight of so many robots, some are fascinated by what we managed to build here, and our peaceful lifestyle. Yeah, Robocity is well known as the “city of peace”. Never thought differently about it, that’s what we try to live in everyday: PEACE. But Robocity is not a paradise. Oh no! Not at all. It’s not a place where you can find eternal happiness, or where sufferance and pain disappear. No way. Robocity was born because of sufferance and pain. It was born as a refuge for abandoned robots of any kind, and only afterward its citizens decided to make it into a real mini-town.

I just need to look at my father and at my friends to see the dark face of Robocity. My father, Firebot Allen, was scrapped by his human creators because they feared he could replace them at work. He was thrown in a trash tip like a broken dishwasher and he was rescued by our friend Aquila, who underwent his same destiny. Dad and Aquila were the first ones to inhabit Robocity, the first refugees. And then I look at my other close friends… Rendor became a Robocitan after being sexually abused by his creators, Jazz lost his parents and got depressed and his relatives didn’t want him so his only hope was coming here in Robocity, Destroyer is an ex-I.A.R. robot with mental illnesses who found his own redemption here, Eridian is an autistic child taken care of by his older brother, Meron Soldiery saw his mother die and has to deal with his family’s problems, Rock was treated like a Military Robot when he was an innocent Experimental Robot, Tam was used as a clown in a circus and he was then abandoned in the street…

Where’s the happiness? Where’ the paradise? Robocity is nothing like that. Our ideals and lifestyle come from a painful past, it’s what we learned from life. I’m not the right one to talk about these things, I know… but my teacher asked us to write a short essay, today that’s the Anniversary, or a poem. I don’t feel like writing poetry this year, I preferred writing down what I think Robocity is, talk directly to anyone who will read this, even if it’s just a small text written by a five years old child.

A few days ago I was at Jazz’s apartment, looking at pictures from his photo album together with him, Rendor, Rebecca, Lift Aid and Thunder. There were photos from his old family, his creators who loved him as he was their real son - and Jazz is really one of the few Robocitans to have had creators like that - photos of him as a baby, photos of a happy child who lived a carefree life ’till the day everything broke, when his parents died in a car accident. Jazz burst into tears at those memories, at those photos, and I cried with him; we all cried with him.

I don’t know, I may be wrong… but I really don’t feel like saying Robocity is a “reign of peace and happiness” as if it was a real-life fairy tale. It’s not a fairy tale, as this peace was reached at a high price: the Robocitans’ past life.

Happy 14th Anniversary, Robocity. I hope the next Robocitans will be fruits of love, not of pain, sufferance or war.

Robocity 14th Anniversary 2008
This is something I wrote this morning at school, for the Anniversary day ^^ Looks like my essay was featured between the Top 5 of the compositions of the whole Robocity. I’m honored!

HI THERE!

THIS IS A HUG CERTIFICATE ! !

Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!!

You might send it to your enemies as well!
It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!

PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE POST. IT'S SO DANG TRUE* 1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you. 2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way. 3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. 4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you. 5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep. 6. You mean the world to someone. 7. If not for you, someone may not be living. 8. You are special and unique. 9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. 10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. 11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world. 12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it. 13. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks. 14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know. 15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great. Add this as a comment to ten of your friends tonight and at midnight your true love will find you. Something good will happen to you at 2:25 tomorrow. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. Whoever breaks this chain letter will be cursed with 10 relationship problems for the next ten years tag ur it!! this is so scary!!! send this to 15 ppl in the next 143 min. and then press F6 and your crushes name will appear in big letters!! it is so scary because it works
