Please comment on this page if you see a member with some burning interest that you don't know if there is an Elftown page about.

People who complain that nothing is happening here, can be sent to the junk forum. Hundreds of postings every day.

Text Adventures

These are links to RPGs on Elftown. Should be improved with links to the best ones?

Special interest wiki-pages of some kind?

Playgans?, poetry communitiesWhat's your sign?, How on earth did you pick that name?, How on earth did you find elftown, featured wiki, Warcraft Artwork, Art contests, Competitions, Elftown tutorials, something else?

2009-01-08 [Hedda]: But that is general advice to all newcomers. Very important, but now what this page is about. <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

The HOWTOs and tutorials needed some more organizing the last time I looked at them, but I think there is something... I'll go to bed now though.

2009-01-08 [Hedda]: Oh, thanks [Jitter]! I didn't find Elftown tutorials when I needed it before (See my comment there). That's a great set of pages where we can point new members who seem to be interested in one of the subjects there. (Or actually have made pages for it.)

2009-01-08 [Jitter]: You're welcome :D

I only added stuff I would be interested in <.< if I find more I'll let you know :)

2009-01-17 [Hedda]: Problem: What to say to people who are very much into anime and manga?

2009-01-18 [Thunder Cid]: Perhaps a person or team could assemble a page indexing the known and popular anime and manga wikis?

2009-01-18 [Hedda]: Or perhaps there is already such a page...

2009-01-18 [moira hawthorne]: [Zardra] knows most of the anime... ask her

2009-01-19 [Artsieladie]: Ok, I just had a totally random thought. Would it be a good idea to have a link to The Wiki's Wiki Page on Mainstreet in the same vicinity as Text Adventures and MC? Just a thought.. :P

2009-01-19 [Hedda]: I might be wrong, but I don't think that will be helpful for people looking at the Mainstreet for the first times. It's linked to from the top of the index page so putting a link on Mainstreet too is spammish.

But Anime Wiki was the page I was asking about.

2009-01-19 [Artsieladie]: Ok, it was just a thought at the moment. It just seemed like a good tool to plug a bit more so more people are aware of it and will make use of it. -shrug-

2009-01-19 [Hedda]: What you often miss is that we mustn't have all information everywhere, because then it becomes a mess.

Only the things that are highly interesting should be on Mainstreet. We don't want people who are looking at what's up on Elftown (Mainstreet) to see a huge directory of 95% inactive crap wiki-pages.

2009-01-19 [Artsieladie]: Well, we don't want a mess! ;)

a huge directory of 95% inactive crap wiki-pages

?? Didn't I suggest the 'link' to? Or am I misunderstanding?

Eh, no biggy. It was just a suggestion, idea. Nothing more, nothing less. :)

2009-01-19 [Hedda]: I know that you talked about a link and the link goes to a big pile of rubbish (with some great stuff here and there).

2009-01-20 [Artsieladie]: a big pile of rubbish

lol Well, I'm glad that I haven't requested for mine to be listed there, then. ;)

Hey, wow! You implemented that little drop down announcement thingy of 'wikis of interest' from Mainstreet's Calendar already!!! Awesome! <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2009-01-20 [Hedda]: "I'm glad that I haven't requested for mine to be listed there"

You should of course raze the quality by submitting it.

2009-01-20 [Artsieladie]: Aw, Hedda! Gee, thanks, it's nice to know I have something of quality to submit. <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2009-01-22 [Imperator]: lol, nice pun [Hedda]!

2009-01-23 [Hedda]: Oups, I mean "raise"!

2009-01-23 [Artsieladie]: I knew what you meant, [Hedda]. ;)

2009-01-30 [Viking]: n00bs should probably read my diary, too.

2010-12-31 [Mortified Penguin]: They should also go to Bob's Diner. To practice their wiki-using skills or something like that.
