Due to a registrar change for memesis.org, the wiki domain name (chaosprecip.memesis.org) is currently in limbo. I'm working on resolving it.

It's been working fine since yesterday and I haven't heard any other issues.

Okay, guys...

What can I do to make you post more?

Lay it on me, whatever it is you want, I'll do. More plot, less plot, dancing NPCs, cookies? I will bake and send cookies if that's what it takes.

Hi again (does anyone read these?) everyone. Some quick updates to the powers section of the wiki. I've stuck the powers from Avatar: the Last Airbender into the system, so if you're watching or rewatching that and get ideas from it, they're pretty much covered. If you're not sure, as always, just ping one of the mods and we'll help figure it out.

1) Wiki Our wiki-master is currently setting up the wiki so that on your character profile there will be a link back to your tag, i.e. making it much easier to find posts that your character has been in. Your job, players, is to go through and tag all the things you have been in. All of 'em. I went through and did a lot of them a while back, but each of you should go check and make sure that your tag is on everything you've been in.

2) War We've got the two preludes up and running. More things will be unfolding soon.

3) Not-here-ness I-the-Madb will be in Cincinnati attending a memorial service this weekend. I will be gone between Friday morning (US time) and Sunday night (US time). During the time that I am gone please refer to [personal profile] harmitwithspark or [personal profile] resonant_eve at AIM: Veldrin Dalharil and Caligo87 respectively. You can also e-mail me with questions, but I won't get 'em until I get back.

4) The botanical and the bestiary are looking good! Keep adding things to 'em! Ditto settlements.

5) So we've got us some honest-to-Bob antagonists now. Do y'all want to see bios of them? Do you want them to remain cyphers? Lay it on me.

Okay, we ARE still doing the war, things have just been rough here so it's going to be starting later this month instead of (obviously) near the first.

A couple of things I want to note:
•There will be at least one, in most cases two, threads available for every player character regardless of how often that character has or has not been played.

•We want to make it clear that there is a real possibility that NYC could be lost. We'll be threading things out, and if the NPCs win the Org will lose control of the city. It'll be up to the player characters to fight this out. Or not!

I edited the wiki code to consider LJ/IJ/DW userpics as valid images. Normally MediaWiki assumes anything ending in .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, or .png to be an image, but userpics don't have the file extension.

I edited Souji's two character pages to pick up the change. Anyone else who wants to add userpics (or replace other images with userpics) can do the same. If your page already has a userpic link that doesn't show up as a picture, just edit the page and save it, that'll pick up the change.

Please reply if you get any unusual error messages from the wiki.

The next wide-spread plot that we are going to do is set to begin in June, with some prelude things prior to that. This will be a war over NYC.

This time, to make sure that everyone gets a shot at shining, we're going to ask you to sign up. Just comment here if you are interested in playing.

We do have ideas for every single player character, and each person will get their very own scene unique to them if they choose to sign up. This doesn't mean that it's mandatory, merely that we're thinking of you.

The plot tag will be plot: nyc war.

In addition to the mod created scene posts, we encourage anyone who has ties to NYC to react to the preludes, perhaps use them as potential scene starters of your own.

ANYWAY. I want to make things very, very clear when it comes to world building and Chaos Precip.

We want you to world-build. We want you to add to the places, plants, animals, religions, cultures, and things that populate the world. With very limited exceptions you do not need to ask permission to add to the world.

We know that things get very confusing for people and nobody wants to overstep, so here's the official guide to world building.

Step 1: Check the wiki for information on the whatever-it-is you're considering adding.
Step 2A: If the whatever-it-is already exists, read over the information. You may add information to the existing article, you may not remove information.
Step 2B: If the whatever-it-is does not exist make a wiki page for it and fill in as much information as you have. Some basic information requests:
Animals: Base species: what animal the creature mutated from. Alignment: Same as with people. Traits: These include physical traits such as size and weight, any powers that might be expressed, markings common to the breed, habits, preferred environment, and ranges.
Plants: Base species: what plant the creature mutated from. Alignment: Usually "Nature" Traits: These include physical traits such as size and weight, any powers that might be expressed, marking, preferred environment, uses, and ranges.
Settlements: Name, Location, Dominant Culture (if any), Notable Religions (if any, link to religion entry), Surrounding Landscape.
Religions: Name, Nickname (if any), Beliefs, Range, Prejudices. Please remember that any real-world religions must be treated with respect and disrespectful treatment of any real-world religions will be removed. There are other places to be political.
Political Movements: Name, Nickname, Beliefs, Range, Rough number of adherents.
Spells/Powers: Add a brief description to the page on the appropriate element. If you are unsure about this one, contact a mod.
Step 3: Go ahead and start using it in game.

You do not have to add illustrations to your plants and animals.
You do not have to add maps to your settlements.

It would be nifty to have pretty themes. If anyone has any damn clue how to make pretty layouts, please go for it.

If not, eh, we'll survive.

H'okay, so, since I've already done a character migration to DW before, I thought I'd point out a few things to make some things easier. You all may already know these things, but here goes, anyway.

1) Under the "Organize" tab, at the top of the DW page, there will be an Import Content, selection. Selecting this will allow you to import posts, icons and more.

Select Insane Journal, obviously, enter the journal name and password of your character from IJ, click all the boxes, et, voila!

2) "Claiming" your account. You'll notice that a lot of the imported journals are now done by blahblah.insanejournal.com. Whelp, what you need to do, is this:

-Go to http://www.dreamwidth.org/openid/claim
-Make sure you're logged into the relevant character in both DW, and IJ
-Enter the relevant information in the fields in the account and click Claim Account
-Click yes, and the request will go through. This generally takes a few days to go through,
if I recall right, so don't worry.

Whelp, those are my few words of wisdom. I hope that helps.

VERY IMPORTANT

RESPOND TO THIS

One of the things I am hearing most is "Insane Journal keeps losing tags, that's why I don't play".

DO YOU WANT TO MOVE TO DREAMWIDTH? YES/NO.

For future reference in tags.

Plots should be tagged as "plot: (plot name)" eg; plot: mammoth caves
Locations should be tagged as "location: (location name)" eg; location: chicago
Character tags do not need to have character: (name), they'll still just be (name)

Please try to remember to tag everything, and if you choose to go back and tag old things appropriately I'll be thrilled.

Wiki stuff
I want to have canon pages, so hat if we ever get more players (go recruit, people) they'll have a good idea of what the alternate history for the canons are. I'm willing to do the grunt-work on that. If you have any major canon changes that are not in your applications please, please, PLEASE post here and let me know. This will make it easier on everyone in the long run.

Activity
Posting remains very, very slow. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can make this game more interesting, please let me know. I'm willing to run personal plots, to do more game-wide plots, pretty much whatever it takes. Just let me know and I'll do it, guys.

Recruiting
I've got a couple of places to look for more players, but it'd be wicked awesome if you guys could shop us around as well. This goes into the last one, more people will mean more things going on which means more activity which means more fun.

Terminology
New wiki section on terms we use, such as how affiliation levels are used.

Post tags

[personal profile] sliceitwithwind
Hey, guys? A lot of the posts don't have all appropriate tags on them. Do me a favour and go back to things you've played in and drop your character's tag into them. I got some today, but I probably missed others.

The site was down since yesterday morning due to snow in Seattle. It's up again and no further outages are expected. I apologize for the interruption in service.

There is now a wiki for the game found at http://chaosprecip.memesis.org/

The wiki is read-only to the general public, and requires account creation to edit. Please contact a mod to get set up. Anyone with an account can edit any page, except those pages that have been protected.

This is not a Wikia site; this is MediaWiki - the same software used at Wikipedia. It is hosted on its own computer - my computer, in fact :) If it turns out that the community prefers Wikia or something else, I'll make arrangements to transfer over data.

Since I'm not in the game, I won't be editing anyone's actual content, but I will be making edits to link pages together, categorize pages, and the like. My goal is for the people running the game to have time to do so, and not get bogged down in administration or fiddly wiki editing details.

If you have questions, please post and I'll try to answer.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Buoy!

Unofficially, Buoy is our mascot, in that we don't have a mascot right now. SOOOO...

Draw Buoy. We need a 135X135 icon to set for the wiki, and I'mma thinking that everyone who can draw, should draw a Buoy. One of those (voted on by all y'all) will be the new wiki logo.

Is this thing on?

Okay! Some questions!

1) Does anyone want us to move our information onto a wiki? I've got a friend willing to help me learn how to use such things.

2) Don't forget that you can update new places, plants, and animals at whim. In addition, I'm starting to illustrate the animals...but hey! Other people want to draw pictures too? Go for it!

3) We're talking about expanding information on the various species, such as primary diets, what they're descended from, and so on. Thoughts on that? Anything that doesn't jive with current characters can be ignored/grandfathered out for current characters.

4) Currently running plots:
~Main storyline (Batou & Remy H, and the TJ, Clarice, Havelock group are currently active)
~Apprentice abuser storyline (Batou & Remy H)
~Mammoth Caves (L & Aya Brea)
~Slavery plot (Cloak & Dagger)
Anyone who doesn't have something going on can feel free to ping me and I'll happily either slide you into something or give you something new to play with. Non-plot related things going on include Eve and Raz just being kids at each other, and Butterfly wandering around the south east.

5) New player! Whee! Everyone say hi!

Okay, in the next day or so the slug fighting post will go up.

I WILL DO MY BEST TO BE EVERYWHERE IN IT.

However I am only human, and tend to flail at the possibility of hurting characters other than my own. SO.

You can feel free to throw slugs at each other, to write drabbles of what your characters are doing as long comments, and generally have an anti-slug free-for-all.

If you've seen the film "Slither", that's the slugs we're dealing with. So you have your choice of actual slugs, or slug-controlled zombie people. The slugs CAN use their host's alignments, but not very well. All of the people in Shibuya are Aligned level, so it's poor use of low powers.

There will be a main control slug/person, I'm going to use a random number generator to decide who to throw that one at. :) So at SOME POINT all the slugs will drop, but you won't know who it was until they do so.

[personal profile] sliceitwithwind
Well, ladies and gentleman we have our first plotty thing!

Kitanji Megumi, of Shibuya, California, has sent out a request to Billy Pardy for help with his current mind-controlling-slugs situation. Due to the extremely low power of the people in the town, they're pretty helpless right now.

After Bill has shaken off his initial reaction, the Organisation will be sending out "please help these folks" notices, and any characters who want to go pound on slugs will be welcome to do so.

For some idea of how these little suckers operate you can check out "Slither", Bill's home canon, or just run with "they're big, brown, and fuck with your braaaaaaaain!"
