Time to bring out the cluebat, Randomizer. :P

Although I did check to make sure it didn't exist. I haven't memorized all the CCTLDs, and there might have been some obscure island kingdom named Offal. But on checking the reference .of is not assigned to any nation.

When you reach the stage where they will politely correct you, you're done. There's basically no way to stop us from doing that. :P

I still think that the most bewildering part of this was how the policeman "recognized" the "signals".

Would the existence of such a thing be an undesirable result?

Been there, done that for years; I kind of like the salty taste. It tends to have a similar effect as caffeine when too much is eaten, though.

Sorry Thuryl. As consolation, they're more of an embarrassment to me than you - after all, #3870 is mine. That's right; I left and returned with a multi account to defend myself in my absence. I wasn't any better than the lowest noob.

I hope I've grown a bit since then.

(And yeah, this was the other topic. Encyclopedia Ermariana forever!)

There are all of two topics that I really wish to retain on Blades of Avernum. This is one of them...

(And no worries, my Nanowrimo is not the other. I can imagine that that one takes a lot of space.)

My concern is that if the project is not separated clearly enough, its scope will eventually become biased toward one or the other of its goals. Should the OOC be mixed in with the IC? Below it? Above it? Hidden in a spoiler tag, even? Or vice versa?

I guess I'm still thinking of a EE-type project--a unified information source for everything we know about Terrestia and Shaping--rather than any gameplay stuff.

Seconded. I'd seen it as more a place to go read about Sucia Island, for example, than a place to find out which kind of sword was best to beat Monarch, or whatever.

Slarty:

I do think it would be nice to be able to say "The Guardian Claymore provides a +2 Strength bonus" rather than "The Guardian Claymore enhances the physical prowess of those who wield it."
Wait, wait. I'm beginning to see that what we have here isn't one idea, but two.

Would there be a point in creating both a Gameplay and a Story project? These could be very well integrated - for example, such that the IC and OOC pages of the same article - "Guardian Claymore" link to each other in the sidebar or as a tab. Or if that is not a good idea, the portals could be separate and only loosely related - being on geneforge.ermarian.net and terrestia.ermarian.net, respectively.

Any ideas? :)

It is a pity. But I suppose the name "Homeland" carries too great a curse.

Superior Salmon does not share an IP with any member who has posted in General in the past years. The only match that comes within two bytes is Drakey.

After all, resurrectig topics to avoid their deletion is directly against the purpose of the purge. The purge would have to be repeated sooner and become even more severe.

Mariann has announced a forum purge on forums #1, #15 and #18 (General and both Blades forums). The purge will affect topics stagnant over three months and be performed Wednesday morning, board time (-0800).

To the best of my knowledge, PPP4 has already archived everything that will be affected, except for the results of polls that I have not yet voted in to allow Piperbot to access them. I will take care of that tomorrow.

There is no need to compile a manual archive. However, if you wish to save any threads directly from UBB or resurrect them for potential continuation, now is the time to do it.

Thank you and good night, :)

-Aran

That's easy to explain, but tough to fix.

- I use Views to show graphics and scripts in tables. These are shown with a brief description .
- When adding the "body" field of a CCK node (which all of these are) to a View, this body field will include all the other fields of the node (thumbnail, script source, etc.), which would look stupid in the table. There is no way to access only the text of the node.
- To solve this, I make the View show only the teaser of the node, and make CCK hide the other fields in the teaser.
- The result is that the front page (also showing only teasers) will display very little information.
- To solve /that/, I replace the front page with yet another View that shows the entire node.

The end result is that the front page displays full nodes, and ignores teaser cut-offs. I have a few vague ideas how to work around this, but haven't yet tried any of them.

Indeed. WinME is not an operating system any more than friendly fire is friendly. It is barely a system, at that.

Yes, platforms are easy to get used to. But there are some that you can live with once you get used to them (I've been with Windows XP for most of my life even though I'm a Linux fanboy nowadays, and my home computer boots XP by default), there are some that are just unhealthy habits. You're not doing yourself a favor by sticking to ME.
