Introducing a waffle, of a most chaotic variety.
« on: December 05, 2012, 06:14:40 PM »
I am chaoticwaffle. I am still relatively new to the citadel. Though I have poked around for quite a bit I only put up a couple subs so far. Yet for some reason I haven't made an intro yet. Well I am now.
I deal pretty much solely in fantasy style. I occasionally do sci-fi, but not really.
As far as tabletop rpgs go I have played Pathfinder, DnD 3.5, and systems friends have made up. I have DMed(is that how you write it?) my own Pathfinder campaign once. Due to player unavailability it kinda died though. :'(
I haven't DMed anything else yet as I lack players, but I am currently on the hunt.
Pathfinder is my favorite so far, mainly because I know it the best. Though I am not shy to learn new systems.
I have played mmorpgs before as well. I played Everquest, Everquest 2, DDO, Perfect World, and Forsaken World. I have also played plenty of console and handheld rpgs. Not sure if the video game ones are important though.
I like coming up with ideas, worlds, people, organizations mostly. I don't do well with puzzle craft, they always seem to be too easy.
Anyway I'm happy to be apart of this community and I hope to be able to do a lot.
Some of my favorite quotes:
"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." Confucius
"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." Confucius
"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
 John 15:13
"The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits."
 Albert Einstein
 "It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them."
 Mark Twain
 "Failure is success if we learned from it."
 Malcolm S. Forbes

"Roamer, wanderer, nomad, vagabond call me what you will, but I'll take my time anywhere. I'm free to speak my mind anywhere. And I'll never mind anywhere. Anywhere I may roam, where I lay my head is home."  Metallica

Oh and I may look like an idiot in a second, but I gotta ask. I have looked at the how to link subs sub and I still don't get it. Is there a video or something I can watch showing me how to do this? Would someone do this? I just seem to have a hard time understanding the typed directions.

Welcome to the Citadel! With luck, you'll fit right in. You might take a gander at some of the forum games we've had in the past, and see if that would suit your fancy, if you have trouble finding players in your own area.

As for a video, we don't have any at the moment, but I could make one up easily enough. That's an uncommonly wise suggestion, and just the sort of thing we've been wanting newbies to give for a while. Kudos for the idea, and I'll see what I can rustle up for you.
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

caesar193's Guide to Linking Subs:

1. Ask yourself this question: is the link going to be in the forum (aka, here), or to another sub? From there, you can move on

2. If you want to write a sub and have a link to another sub, then there are multiple ways to do this. The first is to take a bracket (which are one of these things []) and put the sub you want to link's name in it. Like so: [chaotic waffles are chaotic]. The second thing you can do to link sub to sub is with the ID. The ID is a number that acts kind of like the sub's social security number. Anyway, it can be found on the left hand side of the page, with all the other sub info. It is right above the hits, and right below the amount of xp the sub has (which is under the amount of votes, which is under the shield with the sub's average score). You can take that number and put it in the bracket with some random text. Use a straight line (on my keyboard it looks like a straight line with a break in the middle, in case you can't find it on yours). Like so: [99999|chaotic waffles are tasty]. Instead of showing the subs name (which, to continue the previous example, would be 'chaotic waffles are chaotic'), it would show whatever you wanted it to show and still link to the sub.

A real life example: I am using my sub entitles Ariel Lorette. Its ID is 7129. So the first way: Ariel Lorette. And the second Ariel Lorette is an awesome sub which everyone should read and comment on. You can't see the mechanics, but you can see the after effects.

3. Linking from forums was slightly weird for me the first time I tried it. Instead of using single brackets like in above, you use double. So the above Ariel Lorette example used the same format inside the brackets as the sub to sub links, but used double brackets. In the chaotic waffle example, you do chaotic waffles are chaotic, and chaotic waffles are tasty.


I hope this helps. And welcome to the citadel. May your pen be filled with ink, and you sword be bloody from numerous successful battles against the evils (or goods, if you swing that way) of the universe!

Is that how t also make one sub to another sub? Like I noticed how some subs have red banners on the right side to other subs relating to themselves.

Darn. Than do I just submit my subs anyway? Also I did have an interesting question. Is it preferred that if I am going to be submitting a series of subs that I a) submit them one at a time as they are completed, or b) that I finish them all and then submit them all at once.

On initial submission, any links are pulled out and shared on the right side like you mentioned. Freetext is another way to control what is on the right. Additionally, if when submitting they aren't added automatically, click on the "Suggest a Submission" above the comments. Putting in other subs there will link them to yours and put them on the right side of the page as well.

Check out http://strolen.com/viewing/Placeholder_Gods (quick look found this first). On the right side are linkbacks. If you click on any of those, you will find the sub you just left listed above the comments section. Go to the bottom of the one I linked again and you will see a list of suggested subs. All those will have linkbacks to the sub you are viewing. All that is controlled from that suggested sub input in that same area above the comments (use the sub number!) and you can develop a bunch of linkbacks like that....as long as they are all associated.
