    Dont know if Flip meant to create a thread, but since he did lets make use of it

    In the almost two weeks now i see that people are more interested in the roleplay elements on the wiki, rather then the rules.

    Since the BRCS index is pretty much fleshed out on the main page and taking quite some space i am thinking of moving it to another page more in the background (ofc linked from main) leaving more room to split out some of the area's like the Atlas sections.

    any other ideas?

    I guess it depends on whether the wiki is supposed to serve current BR players (who already have core rules and want content) or new BR players who are looking for the campaign setting and how to build a character, &c.

    I doubt it would hurt to effectively host the BRCS on the wiki. Instant access to any term is damn useful, but most people would still want a hard copy for their games. (That is, I'm not suggesting replacing the downloads of course, but an addition might be good.)

    well i didnt mean remove the BRCS pages completely, just simply remove the complete index from the main page and move it to a lower level. or simplifly the index listing the chapters only for example

    Well, places like d20srd.org do a roaring trade (metaphorically speaking), simply because of the ease of use and access. If somehow the PDFed BRCS could be converted to also be online, it can only do us good.

    Likewise, making the downloadable hard copies harder to find (as it were) is somewhat counterproductive, I feel. After all, the people who don't have it yet are likely to be new to the site. It needs to be in a prominent place, even if it's only one link on the main page.

    I didn't work on any of those pages since I don't use the BRCS, but I believe all or most of it is wikified. There is no question of that "somehow the PDFed BRCS could be converted to also be online" because its already up, but rather, how much screen space should be given to its contents on the main page.

    I'm sure this has been asked, but I can't find a discussion on this: Will the BRWiki be updated to 4e when it is released?

    well that depends on all you guys if you are going to!

    BRnet will probably loose its official status, but will be allowed to carry on.
    There only will be some competition, but i got some nice ideas to stay alive.

    but if the wiki will be updated to 4e all depends on the contributions made to it by BRnet members.

    cheers

    Hopefully it won't be an update, it will just be an addition. At the moment there are NPC stats for AD&D and D&D3.5 (and I suspect D&D3.0). Hopefully by the time D&D4.0 comes along we will have worked out how to clearly mark what page has what.

    Most of the descriptions of places won't need to change at all. Just the basic rules for Birthright.

    And hopefully we will maintain there being a "official" version in PDF or similar form, plus the more malleable wiki.
