Earlier someone said we could change the post rank names, but that wasn't the only place where the old names are lurking (highborn, high sorceress). In the FAQ some abbreviations are mentioned for them (Highborn = HB etc.).
Shouldn't we delete those as well, and make some new abbreviations?

SS: Surpreme Sorceress/Soul Stealer
DL: Dreadlord
MA: Master
DH: Death Hag
MoM: Master on Manticore

RoH: Ring of Hotek
PoK: Pendant of Khaeleth
CB: Caledor's Bane
AoES: Armor of Eternal Servitude
SSS: Sea Serpent Standard

PoD: Power of Darkness
CW: Chillwind
DB: Doombolt
WoP: Word of Pain
BW: Bladewind
SS: Soul Stealer/Surpreme Sorceress
BH: Black Horror

Actually, I think thats a great idea.

DL: Dreadlord
RoH: Ring of Hotek
PoK: Pendant of Khaeleth
CB: Caledor's Bane
PoD: Pick of Destiny (OOPs I mean Power of Darkness)

I'll find a few more but those are the basics.

Ehakir, I suggest you updated this present thread as a "Living First Page",
taking as an example the FAQ thread (Collecting questions for a coming FAQ)
(also explained in D.R.A.I.C.H. - The Living Book of Art of War for 7th ed DEs)

By the way, I did include this useful thread inside the D.R.A.I.C.H.
Complementary material
and I encourage you in updating it for the benefit of all D.net users.

Sorry, but what do you mean with a "Living First Page"? :shock:
(I'm no native english speaker, so there are some things in the english language I don't understand :oops: )

It has nothing to do with your English. It is just a slightly poetic way to express myself (English is not my usual language either).

"Living page" is my way to express that the material posted in the page keeps evolving, as if it was living.

Normally, you add posts at the end of a thread and forget about them. Only the last part of the thread is "living", i.e. changing, while the previous posts are "dead", i.e. not evolving anymore.

The problem with it is that the most useful information is spread over many posts, and you need to read throughout all the thread in order to collect what you want.

It was a real pain when we got pieces of information about the new Army Book: the real information was delayed among a lot of "wow" comments. Furthermore, it was mostly contained in page 12 to 20 or so, not easily accessible here because you can go directly to the first 3 pages and the last 3 pages, but not so easily in between.

So I collected all that interesting information in a big summary thread, in the first page, easily accessible, which I regularly updated (hence keeping it "alive") while the rest of the thread was filled with comments which were not furthermore edited (so I consider them "dead").

I call that concept the "Living First Page Thread".

I you want more information, please click on the hyperlinks that I included in my previous post just above.
