The Best of Cythera: 2002 and 2003


  • Global Moderator

    Okay, just glancing at the archives, we haven't added anything since January 2002. So, are there any good, high-quality topics that the denizens of this webboard would be proud to engrave permenantly on display in the archives? If you think a topic is good enough to make it, you can nominate it by pasting the URL in your post below.

    Its okay if nobody finds anything they want to archive. I just want to make sure we haven't forgotten anything.

  • Well, if someone hadn't lost my ;ast chron, I might have atleast considered it... cough cough ;) :p

    Just pestering you. I've got nothing actually pertinent to say. :-/ (why don't we have a smiley for this?)

  • Well, we need to get any renditions of any good taverns posted there that haven't been posted there yet. Have any Team Story threads been completed since stuff was last posted there? If so, we need to make sure and get those, too. I really don't know what else belongs there. Maybe you could archive the old "Character Info" thread and start a new one. That same thread has been sitting around for years. Make it a lasting tribute to the accomplishments of Theo Nean Donly here. :D

  • I second that notion, Big Joe, the Character thread could be handy to have permanently archived. I also think the idea of engraving any taverns that havn't already been archived is a good one.

  • Before you go nuts on ME, I would like to know what the heck an archive is. Please, no flaming for it



  • Our archive is (url="http://"http://www.ambrosiasw.com/cgi-bin/ubb/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics &number;=A%3A000003&SUBMIT;=Go")Best of Cythera(/url). There, you can find really old stuff that was posted on this board, some of it well-written, all of it fun. It's interesting to go back to older stuff and see just how much some people have progressed as writers.

    Or progressed maturity-wise. shudder

    The only thing I have against archiving the Character Info thread, is that a few of us still have characters on there that we edit and update once in a while. If we archive that thread, then our characters can't be updated in the archive, so their information/status will pretty much be unchangable (or outdated for anyone viewing the archives).

    We probably do have two more tavern segments we could dig up and archive. As for team stories, we've had a few since then, but were any actually completed - or did they just die off?

  • Umm.... You aren't planning on REMOVING anything, are you? Because I love all the Cythera threads. Every single one of them are important and precious!

    And I've been planning on updating mine... No, the archives are for things that are done and gone, right? I will also say that for those of you that haven't noticed yet, my name links to the Character Info thread for easy access, or you can just remember it as topic number 506.
