So, this is kind of a Game of Thrones salute. So, when a user types Valar Morghulis, the instant answer should be saying Valar Dohaeris.

Let me explain it a bit further if you're not a Game of Thrones or A Song of Ice and Fire fan. It's a salute in high valerian, imaginative language speaken in Valiria (an imaginative place in Game of Thrones world).

Valar Morghulis could be translated as: All men must die.
Valar Dohaeris could be translated as: But first we live or All men must serve, depending on the source of the translation.

Even though no one can guarantee what Valar Dohaeris exactly means for now, it's pretty well known that it is a standard response to Valar Morghulis.

For now, the search for the term Valar Morghulis gives an instant answer to this Wikipedia article and I think that incorporating Valar Dohaeris response in there would be a great salute to all of us GoT and ASoIaF fans. And there are a lot of those fans, I'm pretty sure you'll agree with me on that.

This sounds like a neat easter-egg style Goodie. I've updated the idea accordingly. We just need someone to make it!

This goodie is already online so the tag should be changed accordingly. Tried to edit the post myself but I can't change the tag. I see Staff by your name so that's why I'm replying to your comment.
