My group and I haven't had a chance to get together for a while now (2 or 3 months). We work together and our schedules changed. Now we are finally going to get together again. The only thing is we are down to 3 people. Our fourth guy is the only one who doesn't have a single day off with the rest of us. What makes me sad is, he was going to be DMing a new campaign he was working on. Now we have to consider what we are going to do.

Invite them to BM and play online?

Player of Gabanus family has made it easier to copy battles to wiki, if you so happen to have Windows & Microsoft Office:

^ What the big guy said. I believe it is so.

Kill it with fire!

I for one like a solution for this, even if it's with a technology that not everyone can use or is an admirer of.

Gabanus, any chance of you doing this in something I can host on a website, in PHP perhaps?

As far as I am aware, this is in VBA script.

Enhance scroll creation in your realm
Exchange scroll for bonds
Profit $$$$$$$$$$$$$

No, I don't think that would work :-)

I just think we need to reduce magic seriously, not add more ways to intereact with or around magic.

I did not have time to write much else yesterday, but here's basically what I'm doing when editing wiki:

Either I find a page which is using this feature (tables, templates,..) and copy code from there
or I just go to google and do 'wiki editing [tables]' (insert your specific question there) and you'll definitely find your answer as well.

I appreciate the work mate! Looks very nice and useful.

If not just for recording historical facts for your character/realm, you can also use this to save a battle report which you need for a bugreport. Battle reports will expire after a time, so uploading them to wiki using this and linking them on the bugreport will also help us as developers a lot.

Thanks again! Looking forward to the second part as well.

I'd like to tell you that you can use the preview button whenever you're changing a page.

No need to push 45 changes through ;-) Just preview and push once.

That being said, for editing tables:

I'm left with a seriously bad taste in my mouth and I think other Titans should look into this very carefully. If that was actually condoned by everyone, I think it's time to involve Tom because this is a very serious and out of proportion dev intervention.

I don't think anyone is involved in these portal events, except Vita. (to my best knowledge)

Incidentally, why are some contacts Lady or Sir titled and others not?

Because they either donated or are volunteers for the game.

Was more looking to other realms when you had relevant intel on them.

No, that's not coming on there. At least I am not making that.

Why inclusion of server time vice time to next turn?

This is the standard line that's there on playchar.php, play-status.php. Right now it would say:
It is currently Night. Sunrise is in 9 hours, 28 minutes (server time: 20:32 Monday)

1. Did not see that. Like, at all. It's less than clear.
2. Well, alright then. Like I said, I think the footer is the best location for that.
...

To visualize it better, this is what it would look like:

They look good. I would like some way to rather quickly finding that sort of information beyond going through all the regions. Maybe an addition to the Realm Details page instead that provides all current posesed information had on the locations and strengths of that realms units?
...

If you are Marshal/Vice Marshal you do have access to the 'Command' page where it says 'Army Information'.
This will give you exactly all the details of the units in your army. Men, locations, readiness, strength,..
Aren't you just looking for this?

Title: Day-Night Cycle on Every Page

1. The world globe in the navigation frame indicates whether it is day or night for BM.
2. I am interested on making that info more broadly available like you mention.

Title: Linking Pages

All good, give me exact pages where you want to see it happen.
I'm not in favour of linking everything (like signatures) though. That will downright look ugly.

Title: Expanded Character Pages

Titles have already been added.
I'm not fan of including military information on here actually. It is possible no doubt. But this page is more meant as a biographic kind of page, rather than actively monitor for military ends. At least that was my intention, would like to hear Delvin/Vita on this.
I will add screenshots of the prototype of this page I have currently going on. (see below)

Title: More Useful Add Recruits Page
Definitely in favour of this one. Good call.

Title: Merging Information Pages
I'm a little hesitant on this one, for I do not think the benefits are that big.
Right now people can recognize the pages directly from their information screen, while if you put 'Your Status Page' people will not directly know what is clubbed together on this page and what is not.

Either way, on all of the subjects above I will need Delvin/Vita to give their opinion. Some are obviously small works for a big win, while others I'm still hesitant about.
As I told you before, we appreciate all the thought you put into it, a new pair of eyes on things is always good.
