rimshot social
Note #16431
posted on Typos
Sunday, January 7, 2018 @ 19:38
I just learned that the thing that the rimshot social is describing is not
actually a rimshot. My whole life I'd thought it was until just now. I feel
very lied to. Anyway, it should be renamed to "sting" for accuracy.

I changed the text to be gramatically correct... but did leave the other text
triggers as they were. Not everyone has perfect grammar, or even have English
as their primary language.

I agree with Redryn. It's one thing to say, "The goal accepts several different
formats to give the players latitude.", but a completely different thing when
one of the options IS grammatically correct, but the goal does not indicate
this through its own text.

Even if the player should have latitude in what triggers the mprog, the
goal text itself should provide the grammatically correct version over the
alternatives

There is no question that it is a typo. It is there on purpose, however. The
is allowed to enter the following:

1) 'lets do this'
2) 'let's do this' and
3) 'let us do this'

The idea is to give latitude to the playing while typing the expression.

Spark from the Inferno

Thursday, January 4, 2018 @ 02:30
Identifying the token produces the following preamble before the ID box:

Careful study of this object reveals a secret:
This token can be traded to an immortal in exchange for one summon repop.

If, as Broud says, this is a regular area reset token, we probably do not
need the flavour text, or it should be corrected to tell the user that it
resets an area, without suggesting that an immortal needs to be involved.

Point taken from everyone.

So we need to either take a massive undertaking of changing many areas,
mobs, items and manors.  Or change the official 'theme' of the game.

I like the frank bird as it is, there is nothing wrong with it or its quotes.

We also have references to West Virginia, Maine, Texas, and Mississippi in Land
of Legend.  Should we remove that as well?

Since the current rules for area building were put in place after these areas
were written, it stands to reason that they are except from those rules unless
a statement to the contrary is made. No such statement currently exists. But,
as Xyndor states, this can be a subject for discussion by Imms.

I know there are a lot of instances in the game where we reference
technology, etc, but I think we should remove/improve these areas
of the game that can be changed.  There should be no technology in the
game, no cars, no phones, etc.

Something for the imms to discuss, because right now the theme is very mixed.

Doesn't mean you can't compare someone's looks to Robocop, though it probably
should be capitalized.

The mobprogs on this mob just don't fit the theme of the game,

The second line should be "is surely to blame". As it's written, the magic
is blaming something, rather than being the cause.

Also, I'm not sure how something invisible could be called "streaks", but 
I don't know what the author was going for there.

The problem here is that Talsa's helpfile keywords are: Empire of Talsa
Based on Aiighialla, this should be changed to: Talsa 'Empire of Talsa'

Not only will having 'Talsa' be the first keyword fix the search index,
 it will also stop 'help of' from finding Talsa.

"bacteria" should be "bacterium", since we use the singular to describe the

For Bacillus Anthracis, "bacteria" should be "bacterium" for the same reasons.
