Sometimes if you copy a forum URL into the link button, it will give you an address that starts off '/forum...' in the source code. That works. But if it starts off '//forum...' -- which it does half the time for no apparent reason -- it doesn't work. If you don't mind editing out the extra slash in the source code, you can fix it; or let me know and if it's in one of these Chronological Order posts I'll do it.
I don't have enough spare cash right now to make a useful difference here. (In the future, probably, but that's a ways off yet.)
If the rp posts or the header post in this thread went missing it'd be really, really annoying. So I'm gonna grab them and anything else important every so often, and make an archive.
There is no way to back up the forums, that's a limitation of it being free. I strongly advise when you post to have posted from an external source. At some point, if things continue to 'get beefy', I would still consider buying a paid website and having more 'proper' forums, which would allow me to back them up. However, right now, I consider it an unnecessary expense, but I'm def. aware of the disadvantages of the free forums.
You can link to individual posts. Up in the top left there's a date you can click on to get an address to link to. So instead of noting 'RP Posts', we can link to them directly.
So, for example, the first Sirenia link is still the thread head, but I just edited the second Sirenia link so you go directly to the funeral post.
If we thread more, it'll be easier to keep track of, but I'm still thinking it's important to the future for newbies to be able to figure out what happened without putting a lot of effort into it. So I'm thinking keeping up the chronology is a good idea. (And aside from that, I won't have to put much work into figuring out what was going on, or where a character was introduced, two years from now when I've forgotten the details.)
I also have the powers to make edits to anyone's posts too, so I can make changes as does Elbereth I believe. You can edit invididual posts on your own by clicking Replay > Edit Post. However having a proper list like this is also quite helpful for people to catch up.
This is wonderful Astrid. Thank you for organising the Chronicles, I was losing track myself and had missed Valiska's "Wave-Rider" RP.
I will simply add to this list when I next post.
Perhaps Nyza will come up with a better position for this thread too, so that everyone can follow the storyline chronologically, no matter when they begin following the plot!
... Or, rather, my guesses at what happened when.
Since we have characters across Lisianthus doing different things at different times, sometimes there's no way to tell exactly what happened first, and it doesn't matter anyway. But if you notice I got something wrong, in time or place -- or I missed anything -- let me know and I'll fix it.
I'll keep adding to this until it seems unwieldy, then start another.
