Sadly, I still seem to be doing something wrong Embarrassed.

I set the category to melee combat feats, title to Lash Sword Basics, typed in a small intro, pasted in the feat in the body, clicked on the terms of use which auto-filled the check box, submitted, got an error, clicked the I have read the terms of use manually, re-submitted, still got an error.

Started over. Set the category. Filled in basic intro. Pasted in text. Added test author's note. Manually clicked check box. Submitted. Recieved arror.

I'm baffled. Other folks are clearly getting this to work. Is there any reason to think pasting in text to the body derails things?

(tried again with a campaign quality in case it was something about trying to do a melee combat feat. Still no luck)

I'm also having the problem. Internet Explorer 8, Windows Vista.

That solved it. Ugh... Internet Explorer 8 doesn't like the template for the checkbox. It never recognizes that it's checked. While I work on a fix, please use a different browser, or if you can't, feel free to email me directly at the address earlier in the thread.

Sorry for the inconvenience. These weird issues happen sometimes.


Ok... fixed. I changed the fields and buttons back to your standard issue styling and it seems to work.

Normally when I receive the email with the submission, the field labeled "Name" is appended.

That's the field that I normally use. Username's aren't really a very friendly way to share. You can always create a pseudonym (new registration) for your submissions if you prefer.

If you really want, yes.  Feel free to send me a PM or contact me through the site and I'll change your "Name" field to match your "Username" field.

Looking at your site I notice that Ratcatcher is the top rated article (with 5.0) but it has only one vote. I wonder if a more sophisticated metric would be more useful to rate articles and therefore help visitors find good stuff.

For example average rating multiplied by number of votes might be worth a look. The current top list has been rearranged with this metric  below:

Meadicus=49
Soul Reaper = 44
Amnesiac =27
Mage Tower=24
Medieval Inn II= 18
Stronghold I = 18
Medieval City Corner= 18
Changling= 13
Medieval Inn I = 9
Ratcatcher= 5

Absolutely. On the Pathfinder Database, the minimum number of votes required before an article gets on to the list is 3. I didn't implement that here from the beginning only because there weren't enough votes.

If it makes sense to do it now, I shall make it so.

Just as a note, I submitted several bestiary entries in a row as NPCs instead of Bestiary probably because that is the name of the chapter in FC. That did bring it to my attention that I'm not sure whether a Rogue entry, like a generic duellist, would go under Bestiary or NPCs.

pawsplay has a point. It would be a good idea to divide Rogues, which are just stat blocks, and fully detailed NPCs who have a personal history.

A very good point. I'll create a menu entry called Rogues Gallery for any NPC template like entries. So far of the ones you've submitted, these all seem like Bestiary entries to me. I'll rename the NPCs menu item to "Characters".

I have a handful of 7th Sea Rogues I shall submit then. Nnnnrrrg, too many things at the same time! I'll finish the Witcher thing, then post the Rogues. It shouldn't take that long. Hopefully. Yeah, right.  Tongue

No worries. I'm pacing out the publishing of the content as well so that it doesn't overwhelm me. Usually I spend (on average) half an hour every day posting content.

I realize you are not planning on running a forum, but I'm kind of missing the ability to make notes and offer feedback. In the long run, some of the submitted items could use some tweaking. As it is, though, there's not a good way for the author to get feedback, as there is no comments section and no link that contacts the author. So for instance if you wanted to say, "Hey, the Level 2 ability is a little unclear," you would presumably have to chase the author down here and try to get their attention.

A method I use over at the Pathfinder Database is to have authors request to allow feedback via a form linked from the byline. If anyone wants to have that, please let me know.

If there is no other way to have a quality control mechanism in place, it seems almost a necessity.
