I added a few bits to "Game and Adventure Use" to address this. Feel free to add to it if you think of any other ideas.

That would make this entry more useful from a gaming perspective. And then we could also link this page to Library of Lost Books

?Should this cover the sort of meta-Narritive that we use to illustrate our campaign settings?
I'm thinking of the "in game" works that NPCs quote at the characters - prophecies, histories, badly disguised Sun-Tzu knock offs etc. … including stuff like the biographical quotes used as chapter headers in Dune, purportedly taken from the works of Princess Irulian.

…I forgot the Princess Bride could supply flavour text … I had been wrestling with the idea of the Housman quote, but it goes on for ages…

Are we sure that human waste was used in wattle and daub? Cow crap I've heard of being used, but human waste seems unlikely due to the smell, if nothing else.

…just opened this and got "Eunuch" "Ferret legging" "raccoons rescued from vending machine" - not so much an adventure seed but a hilarious character background (emasculated in a ferret-legging accident, he became a skunk whisperer…).

If the guy who spammed our other page really did find a blog entry about Francisco at "Makepocketpussy.com" then we can always revert it.

Over to the mods to deal with the poster in question.

...so I removed it. by The ColonelThe Colonel, 10 Feb 2016 10:37

Don't like the look of the URL for that "blog" re. Peter Franciso … given that the same poster's other visit to the site added three spam links to a page, I think we might usefully remove it. And him.

…found that I made the mess in the first place and so have set about fixing it.

Should embalming redirect to here? I was tempted to add a bit on modern cosmetic embalming but it would look silly under mummy - and may not be much use anyway.

Are we sure that the Romans didn't use iron or steel razors?

Incidentally, is this where the American habit of rubbing dirt into and onto wounds came from?

The page looks to be about the phenomenon "Angel's Glow" rather than the bacterium itself… if it wasn't for Wikipedia's tendency to conflate, the logical thing would be to have a page for the phenomenon and one for the bug.

I did not follow our official style guide here. For consistency, Jürgen wants us to follow the Wikipedia usage for our page names; but I thought that "Angel's Glow" would be more likely to attract the attention of a casual browser and be more useful than "Photorhabdus luminescens", the actual name of the bacteria itself. But I'm willing to entertain opposing views.

Okay. I've re-written the page. It's up now.

Dang! I came across an interesting article I wanted to write about here. Except that first I had to create a couple of Parent Pages to connect it to an existing one. And then I was about 80% done writing the page… and some thunderstorms came through and we lost our internet connection. We had to shut down the computer and unplug all our electronic stuff. I thought I had saved what I'd written, but now that I've finally gotten back to it, I see that I didn't.

To late to reconstruct it now. Maybe tomorrow.

Have you tried this on different browsers?


The Spambot Death Wall
Arcana Wiki - Distilling the Real World for Gaming
Urbis - A World of Cities - an urban fantasy setting of industrial magic
LiveJournal

So the bit that says "the page (name) does not exist, would you like to create it? (link to create page)" doesn't appear?
Hmm… having just tried this, I've noticed that it flashes through the create option page and takes you straight to page creation… which is completely blank until you scroll down to the edit box. Could you try again and then, if you get another blank page, try scrolling as far down as you can? If an edit box appears we may have diagnosed the problem…

Done.

What was the error message you were getting, by the way?
