The Scum Insider

Issue 73 - Stalling the Lynch Wagon
Issue 71 - How to Interpret Scenes
Issue 65 - LYLO or MYLO

and there are many more of those in the 2nd part of each article that should be collated into 1 thread.

I know we got DaveH's tournament stuff done. Do more of these articles need their own published threads still? Can we have someone from the Newsletter Team look into this.

Just looking at this when chap sent the PM. :lol:

Not sure if anything from the foundry part needs to be put together. But if anything crops up that you all want done, then let me know.

It's a fairly labour-intensive process. Dave's is done because Dave is a workhorse and invested the time and effort to do it. Others are not done because others don't wish to invest that much time and effort. In an all-volunteer situation, it isn't possible to demand that they do so. That's really what it boils down to. Until some way is devised to automate this process, I wouldn't expect it to be done consistently, because people of the required level of dedication don't come along every day.

Even if all existing articles series were done in this way, there would always be new ones, so if you're waiting for them all to be done it isn't going to happen.

Besides Dave's we also have an archive of Amazonny's Tournament Tips, but I haven't bothered moving them to a public forum because they are very old and some of the information is out of date.

In order to really mark this implemented, one of the techies would have to devise a tool that would make it easy to archive and index articles, so that the various section editors could do it on a routine basis.

I don't really know what type of automation could be done for this. I think none.

What needs to be done is a lot of labor and time. If that can't be devoted, then that's fine, but I don't see an automated process really working out. Maybe a tech person will tell me I'm wrong...

It's just moving around text blocks. If a techie wanted to work with me I could outline the steps needed quite quickly. WordPerfect can do this (and if WP can do it, I'm sure MSWord and the others can too) but WordPerfect codes are not even close to being compatible with phpBB codes.
