    Either that or con someone into doing it for you. Or at least the grunt work of it.

    Re: getting others to do the job for you, wouldn't that be roughly akin to getting a hundred Genmonkeys using Gensoft Word in the hope that they might type out the completed Genworks of Genshakespeare by accident- or do you guys trust us a little more than that?

    It always seems to do that--if a new thread page has only a single post on it, it won't display it. You need to add another post to see the invisible one!

    At the very least the issues are already named, so we don't have to worry about trying to name 200 comics while we're leafing through them. I'm sure you could find loyal readers to help index the comics for you if you hand them the tools and tell them what to do. It worked with the wiki, right? You just put all the tools out there and then I started changing things.

    At the same time that this is all a lot of work that we are demanding be done, we acknowledge that you, as the writers, are already doing a lot of work. Plus, you're the writers, you get leeway. Making us do the administrative paperwork is kinda like our tool to be able to view the comic with such heightened ease.

    ...I might be able to index the comics. I'm not sure I could get through all of them before school starts, but I should at least be able to make some headway to pave the road for whoever picks up the task afterwords. Which, given the availability most of the people who work on the Genverse have, might also be me after I get settled into college routine. Or we could just wait for Joe to do it, I can't say I care. Ok, maybe I care a little, but mostly just so I can have bragging rights for having done the work.

    It's some sort of bug in the forum software that happens when there's only one post on the new page. As far as I know, no one knows anything that can be done about it, other than hitting, "Reply."

    Yeah, I'd totally be up for other people doing the hard work for me. I'll whip up some sort of organization for the thing a little later.

    In this case it was compounded by the subsequent post being hit by a similar bug that pops up after 500 errors.

    Alright, if people want to help with making a proper index for the website, here's the format we've decided on for each reference:

    <span style="color: [“blue” if it’s a BH command, “seagreen” if it’s MG, and “cyan” if it’s SM, black otherwise];"><p style="text-align: left;">[strip number (counting the number of posts)]&gt; <strong><a title="[Title of the page, minus the “>”]" href="?p=[reference number of the page (the numbers at the end of the page’s URL)]">[title of the page, minus the “>”]</a></strong></p></span>

    So an example would be:

    <span style="color: blue;"><p style="text-align: left;">4&gt; <strong><a title="Gender: Female Class: Spy" href="?p=217">Gender: Female Class: Spy</a></strong></p></span>

    And, when posted, that should show up as:


    Note that the ==>’s should be written “==&gt;” so as not to mess up the html.

    They should be numbered with the lower numbers on the top, so:
    1> Chapter 1: Its a Generic World After All
    2> /Join Game
    3> Cheat to unlock the restricted classes
    and so on.

    This will probably go down easier if more people work on it, so doing this all as a wiki page might be prudent. It can just be deleted when we’re done.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.

    Awesome. I don't actually have time to work on it today, but I'll go set up a wiki page called "Comic Index" to store the data on. I put the page up in the top bar so people can get at it easily.

    Personally, I think we might want to consider other colors for when the Enemy Team does commands (JH and KB specifically, and that pink mechanomancer/whatever chick). But no rush, for the most part they don't do much, so even retrofitting that would be minimal effort.

    Actually a good point. Where either, "Blue," "Seagreen," and, "Cyan," would be, here's what it is for the enemy team:

    JH: #b89c00
    SD: #e012d6
    KB: Red

    Yeah, JH and SD are kind of a pain.

    Thanks so much. I'll be helping out as much as I can.

    It would be appropriate, I think.

    After all, GenGame originated here. May as well advertise it to those who haven't seen it yet.

    Heh, may as well have been. We were doing server-wide maintenance, which included a complete reformat/OS-change of the server, moving databases and so on. I'm currently in the process of final cleanup and we should be back in half an hour tops.

    Yeah, it's one of the best. I'd say the best, and will, since the only one that I'd say was competing for that title is ended now (Digger was awesome, too).

    So, Gengame IS. THE. BEST.

    Domochevsky, I have finally written down the basics for the game. It is right here. I probably missed a lot of things (as it took me three days to write and I lost my train of thought a few times), but that's what editing is for.

    One thing that's been bothering me is whether the first "G" in GenGame is pronounced like the "G" in "General" or like the "G" in "Guess"?

    I'd say the system BurntSquirrel made up is passable, but it doesn't go hardcore. I want a system that goes all the way. Just me being greedy I guess. Perhaps I'll DM a game of GenGame someday. Or who knows? I know how to program, and I'm surrounded by Video Game Design majors. I might actually MAKE GenGame! Oh, yeah, I should prolly give credit to Domo and the boards if I do though. I guess. If I have to.
