[quote name='Metal Bunny' post='30861' date='May 12 2009, 08:25 AM']Anyone notice how he says he edits his posts 5 times, while there isn't a notice that says at what time IaB last editted? :unsure:
And yes, we need something to commemorate the ones who did a great thing or things.
That brings to mind 2 things:
What is great enough?
Who decides?[/quote]

i noticed that as well but i didnt think it was of consequence. He may have not pressed post and merely edited it in his head.

Perhaps then As "Greats" come along we should vote on making them a great? Not sure that one person would be able to cover all the greats since their viewpoint. ie dst saying she didnt like BigC and such.

[i]Note to moderators - I'm having a little fun. Don't get too twisted about the things I say.[/i]

[quote name='awiiya' post='30400' date='May 5 2009, 09:18 PM']Legend Speakers are not as active as Archivists, and they have less members (No offense to Yami, Keith, Xin, and any other Legend Speakers out there).[/quote]
I'll stop editing y'all at any time. Being a bard is fun, and we get waaay more chicks.

[quote]Furthermore, it is OUR duty to archive information and keep it alive for the MD community as a whole.[/quote]
Good point. Get to work. Geeze.

[quote name='pamplemousse' post='30413' date='May 5 2009, 10:35 PM']I would also like to invite the Legend Speakers to work with us on this project[/quote]
Um, no. I hate Archies. Punks.

[quote]...I know that they currently have the biographies of several people in the pipeline, but perhaps with a joint venture, we can cover more personalities.[/quote]
The [i]modus operandi[/i] so far has been to write about personalities featured in the AL because, well, there is handy documentation... in the form of the AL. Other personalities will require a great deal more legwork and interviews: in other words, Awi will be booked until 2013.

[quote name='Nex' post='30508' date='May 7 2009, 01:08 AM'][edit: not one of the ancients, but one of the early, exceptional roleplayers: Penelope LightMoon][/quote]
It's funny how often she gets overlooked. Luke Tarquin could tell you a great deal about her. Notwithstanding certain claims made by mistletoe bandits with exhibitionist tendencies, Luke and Penny were the first real romance in the realm.

[quote name='Yami no Sakura' post='30752' date='May 10 2009, 10:25 AM']No offense taken, Awi. LS is extremely short on man-power and the few members we do have are already committed to other projects and assignments. I won't argue with you on jurisdiction between the Archivists' and Speakers' duties.[/quote]
It's convenient not to have to argue with people when they're just wrong. Boss.

[quote name='Metal Bunny' post='30861' date='May 12 2009, 02:25 AM']What is great enough?

The people willing to do the writing, I reckon. Some of them may get their facts straight.

These names(except omegaweapon) don't ring any bell in my head.So write something about them faster so players who joined after them find out more about MD!! :unsure:

[quote name='IAB']mur noticed me missing when i had computer problems around december last year...... at least i think he did...... i may be remembering wrong though.... as i do a lot..........[/quote]lol, what we do know is that he also left you in House Of Tainted Times Interior for 3 weeks, because he forgot you were there

[quote name='Chewett']Perhaps then As "Greats" come along we should vote on making them a great?[/quote]THe problem with this, do we vote that they're great whilst they're still around? or do we do it after they leave? how long do we wait until we vote to make them Great?

How could I have forgotten! Eldrad! He had an awesome avatar and I almost lost first place in HC because of him. He was a challenge to me. Too bad he quit soon after I started playing :(

So has anyone got any concrete ideas on how we could appoint "legends"?

I like the idea that "legends" are appointed as poeple can be bothered to write about them. If someone can spend some time writing about a specific player about how they are ledgendry then they must be something special.

Right now how I'm figuring out who is "legendary" and who is not is just by how much I have heard their name mentioned, and then going by what exactly they were known for.

I don't have unlimited time... so it is unfortunate that cuts need to be made.

Also as a general rule, if all the people I ask don't remember the person, then I won't include them.

Does that sound fair? It's basically a personal call made by me, but that is the easiest and most practical way of going about it. This is a voluntary duty, after all, so I should be the one to say what I do and do not write. That's just my opinion though.
