I've recently created a new page in the Skybrary regarding the communication systems of Skytopia. I'd love for people to take a look and discuss it before I add it into the index.

It's located here: http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Communication_Systems

And if it's a stupid idea that shouldn't be in there at all, feel free to let me know. *smiles*

Thanks

I was amused by the broadcast format, but I think a typical newbie reading it might be confused and wonder if they were in fact supposed to type out all that.

And I'm curious about whatever it is that I do to get Ell Radio on the air!

Heh, yeah, Lynx... I thought about that. I figured I'd add it in since I used it recently. *shrugs* It's not like it's common.


And, Ell, I'll see if I can't work that in.



**Edit: I've added in both postal couriers and Ell Radio.

**Edit: I've added in correlations between OOC devices an IC comms systems.

Aye, there's the rub.
The distinction between IC and OOC is cumbersome unless there's an universal understanding of which (IC or OOC) the given medium is generally be assumed to be.
It would be silly to have to flag each page.
"This is IC." "This is OOC."
Most of the Skybrary articles I've worked on are OOC. That is, they contain information on how to play the game, how to use the /me flag on the radio, etc.
Actually, I usually type "islands" and have to edit it to read "skylands" instead.

Most of the pages I've read in the Skybrary seem to be a sort of hybrid between IC and OOC. Look at the KittyHawk to see what I mean.

I've been in roleplaying forums for a while, and I've found that the community tends to develop a sense of what is IC and what is OOC. I've noticed that here as well: some things are written from character standpoints (i.e. most of what Keyo writes) and other things are written from a player standpoint (i.e. the entire bugs forum.)

I haven't seen much confusion.

That said, is there a better way for me to format the article to prevent any confusion?

I'm not sure necessarily that it applies, but the Republic has two alternatives we offer our states: GSRN and GNN, both of which are considered media tycoons of radio and television.

GSRN (Global Satellite Radio News) is a non-faction based news network that provides an unbiased approach toward all news headlines. They recently merged with GNN (Green Network News) to bring GNN to a global outlet. That's why our forums recently accepted non-Greens under a guest registration to allow others to read/review our news stories.

*nods*

Since I don't know all that much about it, myself. Would, perhaps, a Red or Green faction member be interested in adding that in somehow? If not, I'll give it a try.

We were biased toward Red? I mean, you and your twin is more understandable, Überbrücker, but not the whole of the Empire. ;3
