Question:

Will old ressurected threads be locked like they have been? Or does being on the 'Threads of Interest' list allow some leeway?

Good question.
I can imagine if there is no reason to lock them that they will stay open.
We do not have a strict rule here for posting in an old thread, but if not necessary we prefer a new topic.

Shorah.

Personnally, I saw these old threads as a good source of informations
for the millions of new gamers that will want to know how it was like in
those good "old days". Want it or not, those old ones are part of our long history.

Btw, this job is a very subjective one, That is why I was hoping for more help from the members..

I would like to see a Thread linking us to vids of those Myst trailers we have on our game CDs. You know, how Myst was made and its concept etc with Rand Miller and the gang.

I know some need certain OuickTime versions. Would be nce if they were converted to a media we could readily enjoy today.

Until LESS is MORE

Maybe the time has come for you to create a list/links to all the best videos presently available. Image

Wow okay, I would enjoy helping where I can.
I have no clue where even one link or thread is but I think with a post in the General section I can start to find out.

I have a big list of youtube sites for Myst stuff but I am looking for more authentic authorized Cyan stuff. Should I include youtube items?

Tell me after awhile if I am doing according to the intention of your idea. I will correct as desired.

Until LESS is MORE

Hi Fezz.

I saw your new thread in the General Discussions. I would suggest
you let members submit their entries for a while and see where it is
leading you.

As for your YouTubes collection, choose the best ones to your liking
to help keep your list at a reasonnable lenght. :lol: :lol:

I, also, would suggest you create and update/edit a list in your first post over there
(and always keep a backup copy on your computer.)

Cheers
Artic_Wagon

P.S.
Since that list might be used by The Moderator Group in some future,
a word of advice from them would be very welcome.
(unless they are using us as kind of Bahro slaves).... :shock: :P Image

Just an idea:

Creativity Forum:

Video
--- Official, Cyan, trailers, etc
--- Fan created - downloadable
--- Direct streaming ( YouTube etc)

Audio --- Podcasts, fanbased created music, etc.

Art --- Fancreated art.

Storytelling, poems etc.

Whatever there is more.


An idea would be to provide the links like this topic Whitch created about the Chatlogs
You will notice that the url's are hidden behind the text.
This gives a very good readable topic.

Still this is all in the "beta phase", so corrections and changes can be made easily.
To make a backup for yourself is always a good thing.

Shorah veralun.

Do our forums have a special tag like on the ubi forums to create
a similar link to yours ?

re: this type...this topic Whitch created about the Chatlogs
_______________________________________________

Edited

I did some tests and the results were bad from my end.

1- Because of my old age eyesight and the fact that this site layout
was designed for higher resolution than mine(800X600), it is not
reasonnable to expect me to do a better job. I am working with my
WorkPad application at bigger sizes on my pc and do paste the result
in the reply/edit window.

2- Because of the zoom option, I have tried IE 7 and Google Chrome Beta but
neither is user friendky enough.

3-- This site will not permit the use of bigger fonts in a link. (I will stand corrected, if yes)

4- The only other option would be for somebody else with better experience
than I have, to take over the list. I would not be offended.

Btw, how far back in time are we expected to check for Threads of Interest ?

As far as I know phpBB does not have that tag.
You have to type this by hand.
Code:
[url=http://www.mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4520]this topic Whitch created about the Chatlogs [/url]


(if possible on phpBB please let me know)

I can see your problem AW.
Maybe this is a solution:
In NotePad (and posible more texteditors) you have the "change" function under edit.
What I tried was: change [url] into [url=Press change all and change [/url] into ]text[/url]
The word text is still a working url and that word can be replaced by any text you want.

With above you can change the post you have now with a few steps into the links I suggested.
Hope this helps. :wink:

Also I should not go too far back with the information.
Remember there is always a possibility to add things if needed.

Good morning veralun.

I have made a copy of you link code formula and tested it.
(less your extra space for it to show in above post)

And it tested ok.

The only problem left would be about the size of the fonts.

Here is an info and link from the list. I will let you show me
how you can fix it and we shall compare the two results.

It is ok now. I have "tamed" the magic formula.

See this next example.

I have edited the old FCAL entry with this new one in...

Too bad Frisky Badger did not see the need to notify us here about the change.
