Welcome!

Yes, I know it’s horribly bare at the moment, but that’s just till we get all the content moved over.

Now, because of the all the export issues I’m having, please sign up for your account again, this will make things a lot easier on me.

Thanks for your patience.

(And isn’t this URL awesome? :P)

To people who aren’t me…

No, I’m not trying to steal your work. If you see something incorrectly attributed (like, half of Bufi’s FB chapters were apparently authored by me), it’s because I’m doing all the uploading, and I’m not always catching myself and correcting the author as I go. I’m not laying claim to your work, I’m just rushing through this, so don’t worry, everything will be ok, and everyone’s work will be their own again before too long. 😛

This also applies to comments, in cases where the author of the comment doesn’t have an account on here yet.

    The URL is indeed awesome. ;D

    but is it now the standard URL? or will Wibbly Press eventually work as a mirror?

      ….shall be the default again, but I had to have something other to move it over to in the meantime.

      • Zanaku
        November 28, 2009 at 7:14 pm

        fair enough, then. ;D

        incidentally, should we refrain from posting back on the old server until you’ve got this sorted? or is it ok to keep up as normal until the move finishes?

        • Stormy
          November 28, 2009 at 9:13 pm

          …I would say refrain, both me and Randi aren’t going to post anything in the next few days (which is all I hope this takes… O_O).

      Hehe. 😀

      I’ve actually gotten a lot more done today than I predicted, and I had a nap (it’s so gorram hot here), I’m gonna try and finish up the MH comments, then stop for a while, cause then there’ll only be MF, Shim, the news and the forums to go, which can easily wait until tomorrow.

      *huggles a pillow* Rest is goooood.

      [Oh, and hey, you should grab yourself an avatar, especially since I made the allowable size bigger this time around! ^_^]

          I think bigger looks better, I hope you guys think the same, the size on the old site was just a bit squishy…

        • Flexer
          November 29, 2009 at 5:33 pm

          Also, I love the different colour of the “new” label near new comments.. Before it was practically impossible to see them, they got lost..

          Now they’re like the little red riding hood in the forest.. Easy to spot, easy to eat..

          Oops, shouldn’t have said that >_<

      November 29, 2009 at 8:14 am

      Well…I did nap for an hour, and eat lunch…

    I guess if you just get it all done in one go, normality can resume a lot quicker too, so in some ways it’s better just to stick at it as you’ve been doing. Wish I could help somehow, though, since Im just up; would make maximum use of timezones. XD

    • Stormy
      November 29, 2009 at 8:35 am

      …you could continue with the Shimer or MF ones.

      Just copypasta them in order (replies to replies etc), and if someone other than you did the post, just do the little letter thing like you’ve been seeing on the side, like [a] for AL13N, [d] for daymon etc.

      • Zanaku
        November 29, 2009 at 8:41 am

        I’ll do mirrorfall, then. 😀

          November 29, 2009 at 8:42 am

          I think Bufi did up to about chapter five.

          thank you. 😀

          it’s actually part of a Reap the World desktop I did yesterday, incidentally. Once the site gets all sorted out, I figured I could stick it somewhere. XD

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 8:53 am

          …that it was something like that (recognised part of it from the banner…which I will put up after this copypasta is done with), but a full desktop? Awesome. 😀

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 9:01 am

          and that’s only the first. doing more. XD

        no problem at all. :3

        anything else I should be doing?

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 11:52 am

          I’m going to finish transferring the MH stuff in the morning (there’s a handful of random chapters left, I didn’t do them in order), Randi’s going to take care of Shimmer…

          Old news posts and forum stuff…those are lower priority, so I’m not stressing about them.

          So, for the moment, I’d say…work on chapter four. 😛

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 11:57 am

          Roger that. 😀

          Is there any way I can post it once I’m done? Or does it go through you?

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:00 pm

          …the author permissions role, at the moment there’s only anon, auth and admin.

          …gimme five minutes, I’ll see if I can muster my own set of three braincells to get it done. (Hell, if Taylor can do it, I’m…at least 30% certain I can too!).

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:08 pm

          …that should be set up for you.

          It’s a simple as “create book page” and selecting RtW from the book dropdown in there.

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 12:10 pm

          Awesome. I’ll make sure to get that done today. So we know it works, and all. :3

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 12:23 pm

          What the HTML tags for putting the banner up is?
          I’ve been trying < img src="..."> and such like, but I can’t quite get it working… XD

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:25 pm

          Well, generally I just upload everything to photobucket and copy from there.

          According to the MF banner I’ve got up, the code looks something like this:

          < a href="http://s3.photobucket.com/albums/y58/perfect_ruin/?action=view&current=mf_for_site.jpg" target="_blank">

          < img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y58/perfect_ruin/mf_for_site.jpg" border="0" alt="mf_for_site">

          [taking out the extra spaces of course]

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 12:31 pm

          Yep, that looks reasonable.

          BUT, even copying exactly what you have there(minus spaces), nothing shows up. permissions issue maybe?

          It’s not vital, but I’m just curious.

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:37 pm

          Hit the “input format” thing, and change it to “full HTML”

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 12:40 pm

          …where? is it supposed to be in the same section as the one I’m editing the info for RTW in?

          if so, I cannot see it, making me suspect moreso that it’s a permissions thing.

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:43 pm

          Ok, you’re in the edit section, right?

          There’s the title

          Then the Body box

          Beneath that, there’s “input format” with one of those little arrows beside it. See if you can see it, otherwise, I’ll try mucking with the permissions again.

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:44 pm

          I popped in and fixed it. 😀

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 12:46 pm

          …except now I can’t edit it. 😛

          I am actually laughing so much right now. Everytime one thing gets fixed, something else breaks. XD

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:47 pm

          What happens when you try and edit it?

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 12:48 pm

          … I can still add new chapters, I can still edit the published chapters, but there is no ‘edit’ button for the blurb bit. XD

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 12:55 pm

          …there’s no logical permissions you from editing your own content (considering I didn’t actually change anything, just went in and selected Full HTMl for you). Is the edit button missing, or what?

          (Also, the tech in me says “start from the basic, log in and log out again, then clear your cache, just in case it’s one of those things that doesn’t make any sense).

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 1:05 pm

          …completely missing, yep. I’ve logged in and out a couple times, but it isn’t doing anything. D:

          edit: now it’s back.

          and I’ve got Input Format bit too now.

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 1:08 pm

          …ok, for the moment, I bumped up your permissions just a little more, until the morning when I actually have more than three braincells functioning.

          I’d give you a speech about not playing in sections you don’t need to, and not messing up stuff, but I don’t need to. 🙂

          Go edit your page. ^_^

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 1:09 pm

          That’d explain the sudden medley of new clickable things.

          And yeah, I’ll be good.

          I’ve had experiences of my own with rampant admin-privalige-fueled miscriants. =____=

          A nice spot of banhammering sorted them out, mind you. 😛

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 1:11 pm

          November 29, 2009 at 1:12 pm

          I am nothing of the sort. In fact, I’m just going back through Mirrorfall now and assigning comments to their respective authors for you. :3

        • Stormy
          November 29, 2009 at 1:16 pm

          …I’m actually too tired to argue with you. So, sure, go ahead, be even more nice to me!

        • Zanaku
          November 29, 2009 at 1:18 pm

          Anyhow; I’ve got the rest of the day, and I have little else to do. Apart from writing chapter 4. But I’ll do that later.

      … but I’m digging around in the admin section to see if I can find one for you just now. ;D
      not sure what I’ll find mind you, and I’m not going to try ADDING one, that’d be foolish.

      • Stormy
        November 29, 2009 at 6:45 pm

        I’ll have a poke around today, if not, I’ll add in the same module as we were using last time.

  14. Stormy
    November 29, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    Ok, since I’ll probably be grabbing the comments RSS module later, is there anything else that people would like?

    (I mean, I’ve done as AL13N requested and made thing happen automagically (yay for the Book component!).

    Randi has suggested a chatbox on the side.

    Thoughts? Requests? Cookies?

    • Zanaku
      November 29, 2009 at 7:08 pm

      chatbox’d be nice. so I second that.

    • Zanaku
      November 29, 2009 at 7:23 pm

      …Could be another good one. Integrate fan art and official art in different folders etc. I’m sure there will be a module for that.

    • Flexer
      November 30, 2009 at 9:58 am

      One other thing that I think everyone will appreciate is URL-rewriting (nice fancy url’s instead of http://requirecookie.com/?q=comment/reply/1/1814 ) 🙂

      That will come back, will it? Right? Right????? >_<

    • Zanaku

      December 1, 2009 at 8:41 am

      Hey Stormy,

      You know the “Recent comments” box on the right?
      Would it be possible to add the post author in there as well? Would make things a LOT clearer imo 🙂

    • Flexer
      December 1, 2009 at 8:50 am

      One more thing.. You know how before we could save info about us in or profiles? Now there’s no way to describe ourselves ;_;

      • Stormy
        December 1, 2009 at 9:04 am

        …I think it’s another permissions thing, should be fixed soon. 🙂
