HOW TO USE THE DEVELOPMENT ICONS

If you do an entry, always make sure to use the appropriate development icon when you post it here on the Forum at the first post of the thread. Change this icon by editing the first post at the thread once the status changes as well. The icon may also be changed by a Moderator or Administrator.

HOW TO DESIGN NEW HERBARIUM ENTRIES

If you're a member of the Santharian Dream and would like to add stuff to the Herbarium, please post in the Herbarium section of the Santharian Development Message Board. People will then comment on your new addition and if the entry is approved it will eventually move to the site in one of the updates.

However, in order to design plants, herbs, trees, weeds etc. for the Santharian Compendium the following necessary sections need to be covered. If you still aren't sure what you should put in certain sections, please read through some entries first and see how others have done their entries.

 a) Categorization

Take a look at the Herbarium Menu and see in which category and subdivision your plant would fit (Bushes, Flowers, Edible Plants etc.).

 b) Basic Overview of the Plant

Write a short description on the plant for general orientation what this plant is all about. Can contain things such as its some things on its appearance, its main uses, how it is found etc. Perhaps some general information that might not fit into any of the other areas - maybe some history if required. Basically try make this a summary of the most important information about your plant.

c) Description
Write here what the item looks like, any extra things that grow from it, and items that it produces. If you aren't familiar with Santharian measurements, please check out the entry on Santharian Measures and Weights first. Write it so that we can "see" it and that an artist could draw a picture from it. Mention perhaps the climate the plant flourishes in and the general "growth" cycle, if you are not planning to do this in the Territory and Reproduction sections.

d) Territory
Put here where this plant grows (which continent, which climate, which special region, e.g. mountains, sea, grasslands, etc.). How far spread the plant is would also be worth mentioning, along with any other information which relates to the placing of the plant.

e) Usages
Is it medical? Is it used for anything in particular? Can people eat it? Does the plant have any postive or negative effects on certain people or animals? Tell us what the plant can be used for, who uses it, and how it is used.

f) Reproduction
How does your plant reproduce? does it flower, grow seeds, fruits or berries and during what time? In general, try to make clear how one generation of plants leads to the next.

g) Myth/Lore/Origins (optional)
Does your plant have any magical creation surrounding it? Is there something in particular about this plant which makes it special? E.g.: Was it created by a god/dess, powerful person, freak of nature, through experiments? Where did it come from - where is it now? Are there stories about your plant, or are there famous/important people who have researched or used in in an interresting way? This section contains all the myth and history worth mentioning about your plant.


If you follow these guidelines I'm sure developing plants, trees, herbs etc. for the Herbarium is much easier and will produce better results. - Happy developing!

IMPORTANT NOTICE

There has been a slight change in the Herbarium Template; As of now, the 'Reproduction' section is no longer optional. We hope this will cause no inconvenience for our Herbalists, and are of course always available for any questions you might have.

Thank you for your cooperation,

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

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
