    A quiet week this week. We all played truant to try out the new client, but we did find time to:

    • Collapse Atlantic Shard's menu. This complements the work the Atlantic team have been doing to preserve their shard's history. Check out the list of old establishments.
      Other shard pages will be done shortly (or sooner if the shard staff nag a bit.)
    • Replace 50 - 3D images in Hunter's Guide with SA images
    • Add links to images showing the colors of Hiryu in both clients- Thank you Tina Small
    • Update - the page of Commands and
    • Update - information on Vendors, thank you kittykat

    Can you help with this project? Please send submissions to [email protected], [email protected], or if you just want to say 'this page needs updating' send a pm to Petra Fyde.
    Help us win the race to get it up to date before Stygian Abyss arrives!

    I need to prioritize the next set of updating. How about you lot nominate a page to be updated?

    Which page would you most like to see brought up to date that hasn't been done yet?
     
  3. Why don't you just start at the top of the "Skills, Detailed" list and work your way to the bottom, updating the links from each skill page as you go? Or just start at the top of the left hand side menus and work your way to the bottom, then move to the right side when the left is done?

    I hate the new collapsed menus. You can't see where anything is. Plus they don't remember if you opened them, so every time you visit you need to open them all again.

    I wish it were that straight forward :(
    You start with a link at the top, you update that page, then start on the links, and each link you follow has umpteen other links, which may or not may not be the same ones, with others in the text as you read down it. You don't know where these other links are coming from, but sometimes you find that the page you've gone to has a link to it halfway down the menu bar on the other side.
    This site is like a ball of wool that a kitten has been playing with, I'm doing my best to untangle it.
    Doesn't help that sometimes I read a page and think 'oh help, I've no idea how much of this is still valid or what the correct info is to replace it with'
    Case in point: The 'armor' link in 'combat related' is a calculator, I've updated all the pages linked at the top, but I still have to do the one further down, http://uo.stratics.com/content/guides/resistance.shtml. I have no idea how much of that info is correct, but it's also chock full of old links to stuff that has been replaced already.
    Sometimes I just sit here looking at it and thinking 'I can't do this' But I'm not a quitter so I do a mental 'roll your sleeves up' and soldier on doing the best I can.
