MDA Bookshelves are available

Recommended Posts

The bookshelves in the Indexed Room of Memories are now available for content. I have placed links to the Forum, MD-Archives site and as well as links to all the alliances and lands. I have also included some interesting links about principles and the Book of Ancients memorials.

I am interested in hearing from everyone as to what they would like to see on the shelves. Please offer your suggestions here, or if you have comments on the existing information, please let me know.

Currently everything is alphabetical, but Categories and Topics is a fun way to do things as well. I will see what I can do with that, thanks!

Oh and big ups to Ailith for helping me with the HTML code, it would have looked like a drunken monkey threw letters at a wall without her. :friends:

Just an idea... If there is enough interest from the communiy, it will be great to start conforming grups of discussion on topics like History, Politics... War.. in terms of helping to increase our bookshelves of MD documents. The "K" instrument might be very usefull for these groups to wright and edit the material.

OF TOPIC:
Well I allready have a topic for discussion on my papers. I intend to continue writing about it soon.
It is titled: Public Space, Marketplace & Community, it can be place as a Cultural or Economic área.
I've spoke with a few people about starting a small group of discusion, mostly market related, anyway will see how it goes.

The Archivists have a K group. (Thanks to Awi for donating 4WP's) so we can use our documents for that purpose if enough people have an interest. But there is also the MD-archives site where people can post articles on War, History, etc.

One idea of discussion has been to have representatives from each alliance (and/or faction?) have access to their own specific 'books' of reference in the archives. For example, each alliance leader could have one they are in charge of and responsible for. The archivists could be responsible for writing books for the information/wisdom/knowledge found in other places.

Hmm, although it's a good idea, I think it would be best if writing book are left to the neutral archivists, and not to the alliances. Y'know, there would be an inevitable bias if alliances wrote their own reference book xD

whoever is ''managing'' the bookshelves currently, can they please contact me, i have some suggestions. If nobody is, then i'd still like to speak to whoever did the things to do with the elements, and the other off site things.

Thanks :P

Yes, indeed! I pray to see that happen. My suggestion is but an idea to expand upon what already great work the archivists do.
Perhaps a counter-proposal might be to have such alliance specific 'books' housed in each respective land. My main push for this is for new travelers in the realm to have better access to this general knowledge.

Phantom Orchid, we already had the intention of archiving such knowledge. We are still in the process of reorganising the alliance. Most members are under demanding schedules in RL and we lost some key members of the alliance. Give us some time to get things running again :)

Grido, I think the element sections you are refering to are part of the quest Yrthilian is working on.

Book of rules in MD? so that everyone could read em from the world? just few ideas... Edited by Robin Mea

The bookshelves have received a facelift.

You will find that they look much more like...books :)


For now the shelves all show the same content, this will change once there are enough books to fill each shelf individually.
It has been tested to work in IE, FF and Opera, please report any bugs.
Suggestions are welcome for colouring, positioning, sizes, content display etc.

There are books from the archives and the forum that will be added soon.
Anyone interested in writing a book for the shelves is encouraged to do so.
Contact me if you would like to add a book to the shelves.


Enjoy :)

Just one small tip, all shelfs posses the same books. can't they be splitted up so they all fall in the right shelf instead if in every shelf..


but for the rest, never been able to lay my hands on information so easy...

What happened to the books in MD Archives? They were so great and then they disappeared. I'm guessing it has to do with the 14-day script policy, or something like that.
