Guys. Srsly. As soon as there's an event, place it into the timeline. I have next to no life, but even I can't be here all day round. You don't have to fill any details - just the event, to preserve the sequence (and the fact that it happened). Details can always be added later - at least I'll know what to look for.
Alrite?
And yes, pun is intended. =D

Why is the timeline colorless?

Great question. Oh no, this is going to be a pain in the ass to edit back, isn't it?

Can't we just get back a copy from the edit history page?

??????? The history says that FastEddie just deleted it with no explanation, color key and all. WTF?

Yea... History shows the color key deletion, but it doesn't record the removal of all of the code. Aw sh*t. WTF Fast Eddie?

Colored text isn't generally allowed on the main wiki. If you want an exception you'll probably have to ask his permission.

I think that's because color is usually disabled in the ... where? :? "Main space"? Something along those lines. Now that we moved it to recap, probably... Or did it happen afterwards? I didn't pay attention. =/

Crap. now the timeline is really hard to follow. There is just too much stuff there for us to deal with otherwise. We should ask for that exception....

So... Have we already decided on who's gonna ask for it?

If FastEddie doesn't agree I myself have a plan B, which will give structure to the page but will be a terrible pain to accomplish. It's basically sorting the events of each day in characters. Those characters will be in the same order every day.

Not too good an explanation, I know >.<

There's a discussion going on in Ask The Tropers about bringing the code back for specific pages. Not looking likely that Eddie's going to yield, though.

Away from the colour subject, sorting each day into a folder could make the timeline easier for anyone looking for a certain days events.

Aye aye, I'm on it :mrgreen:
Even if we are allowed to use color codes again, folders is a good idea regardless.
This shouldn't take too long... right?

I agree that it is totally necessary to folder SOMETHING in there. Probably by act, since it separates better that way. I see it was already begun with the foldering of the "Setting The Board" section.

Nice job. That should make things much simpler.

Oh, right >.< Foldercontrol, forgot about that :P
Anywho, I have not read that discussion about color codes, but from what I hear it sounds like it could go on forever. Any ideas on how to un-messify the stuff inside the folders?

Bump. For the next several days, starting today, I'll be badly out of sync again. Somebody watch the timeline for now.
DONT. SCREW. UP. Our descendants shall thank you for this. :D
