Flattery will get you everywhere, Firefox. Thanks to everyone who has been contributing. I'm still figuring some things out, and hopefully soon I'll be able to make the site look the way I want it to... having some trouble with that. Keep up the good work, all!

This is cool. Are you going to put the whole Skyrate Created Content on it?

This is a great place to pick up on tips and stories about Skytopia. I've added a few articles myself on Unique Combat.

Firefox-
I've done a ton of digging around on this issue. I won't repeat myself here (converting wiki code to BBCode is too much trouble), so check out http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Kiwalesti for the scoop on what's going on.

Kids today (or what ever you call a young fox) have no respect for their history, for the stories from our fathers', for the songs sung by their mothers putting them to sleep.
Yo Firefox, I quoted you in an article on skystone.

I hope you got my email, it suggests a few revisions to the molecular structure.

Well, I just finished my article on Verron. According to me, he's an embezzler, which fits the story nicely enough. He also has his own plane, "The Emerald Hammer", which of itself also has an article written by Akumayo (thanks Aku!).

Please excuse my ignorance, but what does <bump> mean? And is there a place where an old fart can look this stuff up, other than google.

Why ask when you can look it up, found it via google -> wikipedia.

"<bump>" or similar notes just make the thread show up in the list of "View posts since last visit" accessible here:
http://badges.etc.cmu.edu/skyrates/foru ... d=newposts
Hmm, probably should add that to http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Dictionary_of_Skytopia

Bump. Sheesh, all of the worthwhile posts are going to be lost in the spam attack. More on topic, we are still at 49 articles, and need some new ones. I'm sure someone has an idea of something to write.

[Picture Killed]

I've been wanting to make a picture like this for the Skybrary for awhile, so here is the WIP picture of what I have done today, boxed in red. I also wanted an excuse to bump this thread. Also, the obligatory "come write some stuff for us!" We are up 59 articles, so lets keep them coming! If you wish to post an original work on the Skybrary (shanty, story, ect.), it can be locked so that people cannot change it.

That's a great picture, but you should definitely change the title of the book "A inquiry concerning human understanding" :)

Ditto.
Very, very cool FF.

BTW, we need someone more knowledgeable about Combat than I to contribute to the Skybrary pages on Combat Maneuvers.
Especially info on when, and why, to use what.
Here's the link: http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Category ... _Maneuvers

Well done, Firefox. You've become the figurehead for the Skybrary in my absence. The picture is amazing, and I suggest that once you've finished making modifications it be placed prominently on the front page. It is, after all, representative of the Skybrary's mission: to collect and organise all the knowledge of Skytopia.

Sweetness.
Upload a version without the boxes to the Skybrary and we'll see if we can incorporate it into the Main page.
