Monthlong Challenge (April 11th - May 11th)

Postby Atticus Leslie on April 11th, 2016, 3:36 pm

Hi everybody!

As long as challenges are being issued to the general population of Mizahar, I'd like to issue one myself.

A while ago, there was a huge push in the World Development forum to rewrite some lores, expand upon stubs, and add to the site on a whole, even develop new monsters and skills. It even resulted in the addition of a new type of staff - the Scribes. Since then, the WD forum's gone mostly quiet.

Guys. Let's use this resource.

The World Development Forum is a good way to contribute to Mizahar and see results based on your work without the full time commitment of applying to be an ST. It improves the Mizahar experience on a whole and helps create a more thorough environment for the site, and everybody can do it.

There were some big pushes a while ago, including rewriting some races and helping rewrite Eyktol, which may've led to it opening. These were huge steps for the community and have since, sadly, been left uncompleted. I suggest we help out.

Throughout the month of April and into May I propose we push to help the World Development forum, whether this be peer review, development, or even asking to take the reins in an abandoned article, this can really help the community. I know I'll be doing my best to do my part. I'd love to see you guys do yours.

Anyone up for the challenge?

I will help as I can. I lay claim to the Eyktol related stuff that needs reworking/etc.

EDIT: I will also use this challenge to write my Pyken article. >.>

Graders Please Note :
As Ball is getting closer and closer to maxing out Pyken as a skill, I would like to request that in places where Ball is not doing enough to constitute Pyken XP if Pyken technique lores could be issued instead.

Examples of proper XP level for Pyken would be: Ball developing or refining his technique by adding new thing against an actual moving target, not a dummy.

The use of basic skills alone are not enough to accomplish XP at Ball's current level of Pyken.

Thank you.

I will be handling all Ball related posts on Mondays @ 1800 my time *

I'll hold off on my Grading spree and look into the WD Forum during the times when I'm usually grading.

Eyktol is not open for development at this current time. I was once talked into letting it be completely rewritten and I got burned on that. I've since learned if we want a race refresh or something of that nature it needs to be left to the Founders. I encourage all new article submissions though. I will not be approving any re-writes or refreshes or reworkings of existing articles however. We have had ZERO return on permissions granted for these types of things.

Also, remember... you all think you're the bottom guy. But honestly, you're not. You are instead a very human writer. Write. Don't drag it out. But research it well and take time to do it right the first time.

Another thing that has been coming up a lot in chat is 'I don't have enough time, energy or talent to write a new lore article'. If that's the case, please review some of the articles currently in progress. A lot of them need people to review them.

I can try to do reviews. I don't have the time to write anything from scratch.
Very busy at work. May not be around much for a while.
