Text-only summer updates hard to access

Postby Apocryphite » Sun Dec 27, 2009 2:36 am

Right. So I've been reading the wiki and the tvtropes.org entry on Erfworld, and it made some references to things I didn't remember anything about reading. That confused me because I thought I'd read everything there was to read, including the summer updates. I hadn't.

I found a link to the ones I'd missed through here: http://www.erfworld.com/wiki/index.php/Summer_updates
Though it's in the wiki. I like it better when it's on the main site for some reason.

The problem as it seems to me is this: From the front page, you have a drop-down list of galleries. There you have Book 1, Summer Update 2009 and Book 2. Clicking on any image there, will take you to an image page. Then the story, which really is where the summer updates shine, is there as an image text or something. You can go back and forth in the images, but this leaves you with a problem as you can't see image-less updates.

However, where you really want to go is the category. It's not very handy, but at least pictureless summer updates are accessible. So what I'm trying to say is, please put a link to the summer updates category somewhere accessible on the main site.

I don't know, a few people were apparently taking too long, so I'd talk to him about it.

One thing to note: on the left sidebar there is a "start reading here" drop down menu that allows you to start at the beginning of the Summer Updates, and they all do appear inline in that location. The visual gallery is still being filled in, but the "post" location has all entries.

The problem, I have for the summer updates is that they are named weirdly.

For example,

updates 1-9 have http://www.erfworld.com/2009/06/summer-updates-0xx/ (where xx is 01-09)

updates 10-13 have http://www.erfworld.com/2009/07/summer-updates-0xx/ (where xx is 10-13)

then you have update 14 and 15 : http://www.erfworld.com/2009/07/summer-updates-–-0xx/ (where xx is 14-15)

then update 16, back to the one '-'

Update 19 name is http://www.erfworld.com/2009/08/352/ ....

it would make a lot of sense just to post them http://www.erfworld.com/summer-updates/xxx (xxx is 001-049)
