Thank you, Faey, I'm legitimately honored. I'm gonna do my best with this bad boy, though there's a lot of work to do. A lot of what's in the Guide isn't valid anymore as things on 42 change, so it'll probably need a revamp. I'll get started soon, I just need some time to get over this flu. The True Asgarnia -

I'd advise doing what I did. Open it to discussion, have people decide what they want in it. Having the guide makes you a servant to the community, it's no position of leadership or power. You got a duty to hold the community's guide and care for it as such.


If that came off as acting like it's a position of leadership or power, my bad, didn't mean it like that. The amount of hidden posts plus some much-needed updates to certain sections are what I'm talking about with re-vamping.

and rex absolutely shut up oh my god

Because not only has it not fallen to a vote but to inheritance for as long as I personally can remember, but also because I'm not changing things as I see fit. I'm making little edits here and there as things fall out of date or don't belong in the first place (like some snide comments or jabs at people/the community), I've written a new intro as each guideholder has done, and past that things are relatively the same. I'm not "making" anything, I'm hosting it. It's not my guide, it's our guide, I've only been picked by the previous holder because they trust me.

If there's going to be a fuss raised over whose name is fixed to a sticky, and an idle comment about no longer following practices you've followed and helped build over that name fixed to a sticky, I don't think you should have a say in what happens with the community guide in the first place. There's been no problem with the guide's content previously, there should be no problems with it going forwards just because "RiDaku" is beside it this time around.

For all the people who are speaking up, there are more who aren't. It is fair to assume that they aren't speaking up because they either approve, or they don't care. While I do take in to consideration the complaints and requests to vote, I also take in to consideration that the vote won't hold every voice. People who don't care tend not to show up to polls, and people who approve of the person in question tend to not feel a need to speak up in defense of the person they approve of because the situation's already where they think it should be.

Because of this, I don't think a vote is entirely necessary, and that's why I didn't entertain the thought with a debate before I made the thread. I won't be entertaining it past this, either, because I do still have pruning to do on the guide.

Look who came back from the dead, it's Spartae. Or, since by any other name he's just as sweet, Freddy and Jason. (B-Because he comes back from the dead. Ehhh?)

The point about getting a political/social leg-up on the other side of the community is a very real one. I'm hoping to keep all forms of bias and all that garbage off the Guide. I've removed references to off-game things, I'm in the process of removing any snide comments or opinionated pieces (or clearly biased pieces, like praising one form or style over another), and then I'll probably be posting my suggested revisions to this thread or a separate one from the Guide thread (so people will actually check it, I know how infamous we are with ignoring the stickied threads if we don't need them right then) to see if I should make the change. If people are so twisted up over what the thread holds, then we should see a lot of the suggestions pass with flying colors.

If not.. well, we know where the problem lies, and it isn't with the guide like some people are saying, but instead prejudice against a simple name up in a sticky.

Okay, so.. Bumping this for actual reasons and not just for lul gravebump.

I've finished my edits on the guide thread. And by that I mean, I have gone over them time and time again, over the past few months, and tried to find things that I personally don't think should be up there/should be changed. And as you can tell by the "last updated" things, I haven't found much. So more than a few months in to hosting the guide, I am more than ready to say that I've finished my work on it.

I'd like anybody who's interested to read it over, and post here what they think should be changed. Quote the post (snip all the content, obviously, except what you want to highlight. If it's the whole post, just snip the whole post and leave the link-quote there) and leave your thoughts on it, what should be added, what should be removed. Let's start really revamping this bad boy. If enough changes are made, and the guide needs more/less posts, I may make a new thread to compensate it.
