Re: Minutes of the meeting
I may do just that before I wander out, Woof. I've got a few ideas for new message/no-new. I'll take a look at the present sizings on them, then put something together.

Woof;

I'm almost done with a dozen or so possible new indicator graphics. They're simple, and perhaps a few bytes each. Ah, compression...

December Meeting of F-RPoL
F-RPoL (the financial arm of this forum) held its latest meeting in December 2002 - the full minutes are published on the website at http://www.hclub.fsnet.co.uk/F-RPOL/ then select the 'Meetings' and 'December' links.

In short - We decided to appoint a publicity manager to help us raise funds, to open an Australian bank account, and to change the Country Rep title to Country Coodinator. The rest of the meeting was making the appointments etc.

We asked Jaime to take over the vacant US Country Coodinator role - and I am pleased to say he has accepted the role. We also asked Lou to take on a role as Australian Country Coodinator and open an Australian bank account on our behalf. Again I am very pleased to say that she has accepted the offer.

Re: December Meeting of F-RPoL
A donation question;

Do you accept paper money orders. Not a wire-transfer, but an actual "anonymous" check-style money order. I can provide it in USD, Aus-dollars, or British Pounds, Euro, whatever.

Re: December Meeting of F-RPoL
*grin* I dunno.  I tried to cash a Canadian postal money order once and it took me five banks to find one that'd do it ... then they made me wait 2 weeks for the money, like Canada wasn't going to pay up or something.  :-)

Re: December Meeting of F-RPoL
We're not talking Canadian fund, *grin*. We're talking about a lovely means of essentially, producing a universal cheque in the local funds.

Re: December Meeting of F-RPoL
Yeah, mine was written in US Dollars, but that didn't make any difference.  But, hopefully, the people here aren't stuck in small towns with doofabim running the banks.

Re: December Meeting of F-RPoL
Yep  We take  all sorts of  money :)  although we prefer you  don't send  cash   -  thats  just  too tempting, especially when the pub is only a step away ...

Errrrr  no  that  wasn't  what I  meant ...

There are THREE adresses in the 'Donations' thread in this  forum  to  which  you can send paper donations.  One in the US, one in the UK and the third in Australia, you  should choose the address that  matches the curreny  you want to send.  That way we don't get charged exchange fees.

Re: December Meeting of F-RPoL
If anyone wants to send anything 'paper' to the Aussie account, I can exchange the foreign amount without fees (staff priviledges) so feel free to send them to the address given in 'donations'.

Regarding server space...
Is it time for further donations? I am willing to contribute to help solve this problem if it requires more funds.

You just let me know. I will also hit up the members of my games as I am almost certain they would all help out if they are in a situation where they can.

Frater, there is no set time for donations.  Send what you can, when you can, and jase will use it as required.  :)

dice roller idea; darn useful.
i have an idea for the dice roller that would be darn useful- multiple rolls.

users would click a 'multiple rolls' button [to avoid people unfamiliar with the new feature being confused, and also for convencience], and this would open a popup window. there would be 10 rows, 2 columns of fields. the first row would be the roll [2d10, 1d20-3, etc.] the second field would be the 'reason for roll'. after all this, would be the 'and optionally select' section, for having special rules like dropping lowest, and such.

this would be useful for people rolling multiple stats at a time, multiple attacks, rolling attacks and damage at once, and so on. when the results appear in the log, they would appear as they do now, each result on its own line, perhaps with some sort of grouping to show that the dice were all rolled at the same time. the way i said the interface would work is just a suggestion, if someone has a better idea for how it would work, fine.

and if this has already been brought up, i apologise.

edit- and if this is an innaproprate place to post this, i also apologize.

That question would be better asked in General, where Jase is more likely to see it.

Notice
Well, I do believe I'll follow the popular trend of bugging out of certain public threads.

If anyone has a question for me or needs me to do anything, I can be reached here or at .

I won't be accessible thru Community Chat, nor will I be reading or posting in General.

:P  I don't guess I'll be missed very much.  Jase, if you read this, might it be possible, sometime, to make 'general' a board that can be taken off the sticky list as well?

If not ... nevermind.  :)  I'll just exercise self discipline ... perhaps rewarding myself with chocolate every time I feel the niggling temptation to read but don't.

Re: Notice
I've just stopped reading certain threads in Community Chat and General. I find I can ignore most of the inflamatory rubbish that way without missing out on the threads and information I do want to see. No sense penalising yourself for someone else's bad behaviour.

Re: Notice
I don't have that kind of self control.

I can't stand seeing people acting like jackasses without saying something -- and I don't want to be the kind of person who would accept it in silence.

As long as this kind of behavior is acceptable, I'll just confine myself to areas where I have some control -- Games that I can leave, games that I DM and can therefore darn well moderate, and this one (at least 'til it spills over in here.)

There's nothing in Community Chat or General that I want to read bad enough to have to 'ignore' them, and my blood pressure will likely improve if I just stay away.

Re: Notice
Like Shannara, I have decided to withdraw from the General and Community Chat boards, and for pretty much the same reasons.

Re: Notice
 I would just want to figure out why one post changes an entire board. I am now trying to answer the questions for people and leaving so no one argues and changes the subject. I think that people shouldn't say something about anything else in a board that doesn't relate to the question. Plus if they want to talk about what they said then they can make a different board.

Dragon Mag #312
On page 90-93 they have an article on Online Gaming and list some websites. www.rpol.net was not on the list though playbyweb.com is, as well as others.

I would like to email Dragon Mag and advise them about this site - which I feel is head and shoulders above the others.

Is that ok?
