    I changed the phrasing to distinguish warn/infract better.

    Warn fit the meter better but it's all good.

    Today @Stereo taught me:
    We have a footnote function.

    We kinda don't; would benefit strongly from a bbcode that translates [navurl=#tag][/navurl] or something into <a href="#tag"></a> as right now it has to be an absolute link.

    Appreciate the attempt but this one is probably not going to be included because it's actually too specific.
    We need stuff that can handle the fact the rules can and will change, and won't have to be edited every time the rules do or risk confusing people. Basically an entry for this area needs to explain where to find the rules, how to read the rules, and how those rules impact the user, which you covered part of, but using examples that may not always be there, or may not have the same values. The seasonal theme probably isn't a good idea either, since it'd be a tad confusing to users reading it 8 or so months out the year.

    Not doable. vBulletin defines the base href of each page as the root of the forum, so any implicit anchors would try to go to Southperry.net/#anchor not to an anchor on the actual thread being viewed, and the bbcode handlers are called from a point where they don't have access to identify the page calling them, only the two parameters they're passed by the end user. Without the ability to determine their own calling context, and with no way to pass it to them due to their limited parameters, you'll always have to specify where exactly your anchor is.

    If I'm the only entrant do I win all the prizes.

    Sort of, but no. We have a set pool of prizes but if you only write one article you don't win the entire pool, you would theoretically win the pool dedicated to the portion you submitted for, or a portion of that pool based on quality.

    Well I think the biggest problem is there's not really a list of prizes to entice anyone.
    Seems to me the event committee has really gotten out of practice.

    Can't promise prizes when we don't know how big the win pool is.

    For someone who loves to tout about lurking for the last 3 years, and don't know how the event community works is kind of laughable.

    gonna stop you right there. you know that's not true.
     

  13. Default Re: Contribute To Southperry's New User Guide!


    There is no prize list, it's an award pool that gets divided by based on participation.

    I doubt me revealing the pool itself is ~$300.00 would help much, since that's based on how many different categories and subjects we're asking for input on and the number of participants we're looking for, not something any single user is expected to be able to win.
     

  14. Default Re: Contribute To Southperry's New User Guide!


    Personally, I was avoiding contributing in most of the sections because I know nothing about them.


    I decided that has no bearing on my ability to win prizes in a contest with no other entrants.

    Look forward to my descirption of Southperry memes like DOGEBURGER and CORN ON THE BLOG.

    I know I'm nitpicking, but to avoid bias would it be at all possible you make any submissions/posts from your post onward anonymous?

    no.

    Can't find the explanation post anymore.
    Just to clarify, each separate submission goes in a separate post, right?
    Even if it's like several posts in a row, I guess?



    also I see the posting tutorial includes "replacement words and smilies". I'll be looking forward to finding out the magic words:

    General clarification around the R&R topic;

    We do not want you trying to explain individual rules. That's what the R&R itself is for.
    If you're going to touch the R&R category it needs to be an explanation of where the R&R is, how to read it, and a general overview of crime & punishment here, not an in depth look at specific infractions or scenarios, as those are of limited value
