I'm a bit confused and don't like the last part of the Lysarian submission much  with that list of events ( at the end I run a little out of patience ;) ), but I thought I would doing the right thing.

According to the template I did it right and I'm sure, that I was told to add the dates in the  Shiana-entry the way she is written now.

Thar does not follow the template as I have interpreted it, with strict dates at the beginning. I would prefer that for the next submission which will come up soon. Sanaerrin is a much more complicated person and I would like to add some paragraphs which have no place yet in the template like influential persons. I can't put that all under personality.

How much leeway do I get?  :D

Well first of all, the Thar entry is a bit ancient, and we didn't have dates in the Biography sections there. However, the way I see it the Biography section is meant mainly not to cover every exact date, but rather to describe "sections" in a person's life with a certain more general theme and add the dates to that section (that's a new addition). So the Biography section doesn't need to cover every single year and detail, but basically the main outline. The exact events then are shown in the Biography table, otherwise the problem arises - as seen in the Lysarian entry - that you'd have more or less the same thing in both, the Biography and the Time Table.

I'm not exactly sure however what you mean with "no place yet in the template like influential persons"...

You will see what I mean when I'm done  grin

I might add some more stuff to Lysarian once I'm done with this history section, for now I only wanted to finish him.

By "influential persons", do you mean "mentors"? Or maybe 'significant friendships'?

Anyway, I always worked on the assumption that if an entry (any entry, Person or otherwise) benefits from an extra, non-standard section, that such a section is not only allowed, but welcome.

I agree with Master Anfang.

I also don't believe that the templates are set in stone, and if there are sufficient grounds to change them, and sufficient agreement from those of the members' moot, that changes are a good thing.

I'm not meaning change for the sake of change, but if there was something key left out of a template (eg tribe/race of the individual) and it was decided it was needed, I'd be all for it. I wouldn't be all for it simply because a first time developer, or relatively new developer, didn't want to include something in their entry.

No, Dek, I don't want to change the template - and templates should be (and are) up to date, even when they were designed not too recently. And they should be followed, more or less strictly.
I have a look at it if we should add an explaining sentence or two so that nobody falls in the Lysarian trap.

I'm planing a very complicated personality though at a very important part of our history and that might require a little tweaking. But let's see, maybe I caused a great stir without necessity.

I'm sorry for causing confusion. I was meaning IF templates were not meeting our needs. Currently, I think the templates meet our needs. What I was really saying, I guess is that you've got the leeway you need, from my perspective.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
