No worries. Besides, some of us have a tendency to stray off-topic too much as it is!

"Please post your suggestions here and tell us what you would like to see."

Well Again,

A. this is an easy suggestion : can you have by-year product pages going back a few years or so? You have by-year release pages for RPGs and novels, but I was wondering if you could compile them, so that computer game releases are there on a by-year page, as well.

It gets a little hard to track, for those that are trying to make a complete collection.

For example :

Complete List of FR Products, By Year
2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000

Each of the above would link to a simple .html page.

B. text-searchable ESD download packages (not your call, but if enough people ask for this, then we might see it)

C. FR Atlas 2 (to see Faerun mapped properly, would be quite cool.
42 maps cover the whole planet
1 for the north pole
20 for northern hemisphere
20 for the southern hemisphere
1 for the south pole

each of the 10 maps would subdivide into 10 maps, and so on ...

(again, not your call, but if enough people ask for it ...)

Personally, I would like a new section in the forum:

Humor

A place we can hang out and make lore-heavy fun of the place we love, after all parody/comedy is the best way to honor something you love.

What am I supposed to hear Kalin ?

I think any more displays of my humour at this time will get me hamster bites in the ankle, so I will leave quietly. But the ideas are good, it will give us a place to discus who will beat who and how to make characters into gods .

Yes Wooly, I will leave immediately.

Edited for strange dyslectic mistake.

I don't really think this is appropriate.

As I said in your SPOILER scroll in the FR Novel section, all scribes are suitably warned before they open a novel-related scroll when they see the SPOILER tag used in the scroll's title (if it is used).

It's up to the individual scribe who creates a SPOILER scroll whether they want to include further warnings in their initial post.

And about that "SPOILERS: The Aftermath of Blackstaff Novel" thread... Not only is the word "spoiler" in the title, but the name of the thread refers to the aftermath of the novel. It seems logical to me that any thread dedicated to discussing the effects of a particular event would contain details about that event. In other words, even without the "spoiler" tag, I'd expect spoilers in a thread with a name like that.

We do have a rule asking people to post spoiler warnings...And the rule was followed.

This comment probably should have been PMed to me.
I used to have dyslexia when I was younger and spelling mistakes of mine like, 'teh', 'taht' and 'adn' are so widespread. BTW I'm not saying that just to get attention I really did have that when I was younger. It never fully goes away.

Well, we all make the odd mistake here and there. Heck, I'm an editor-type, and I have the odd typo or misspelling sneak by me, from time to time...

What gets me -- and I'm not singling anyone out -- is when it appears people haven't proofread their posts. When someone manages to have three different incorrect spellings of the same word in a single post, it doesn't look good. Taking a few extra seconds to read over your post can make the difference between making a point and making yourself look like a fool.

You are not alone my friend.

I still have problems typing and even with speach! This is realy a pain in the A!!

I often say Par Cark instead of Car Park and to the amusement of everyone I know when going to watch a film Cock Porn instead of Pop Corn!!

So please if I make a speling error please forgive me!!


I'm Back!

Well unless the boards get bared for dyslectics and foreign speakers (I am both) mistakes will happen. One can not demand more from a writer than that they do their best. I have more than once scratched my head over my own posts when reading them at a later date.

I agree with Wooly though even though I am really guilty of this. I am so much in a hurry that i dont even read what I write before hand. If its a long post thats one thing but if its just a couple sentences then it looks so bad when there are typos. It's why i go back and edit a good chunk of my posts.

Yes and no, Alaundo...and well met

Yes, because it is there...and no because what Kalin and I were aiming for is basically something that can represent the banter we have already been "branded" for cuz of derailing scrolls...it's kind of difficult picking up the humor-ball if you cannot do so in a forum.
