What exactly is "Mar'gef"?  I did do a site search and nothing showed up, so no entries are posted in the Dream yet.

Also, after I went looking for it on site I came back to the Forum to try and re-read the post that we were discussing it in - and couldn't find it either!  So either it has hopped to another area of town, like the little funny shop of urban mythology, or my pregnancy-brain-haze has obliterated any coherent memories....  :veryconfused

As far as I can guess, it's a mythic poem having to do with the Quallian, and the destruction of some of its trees... or at least that's what I wanted to start with!  Could you perhaps point me in the right direction for further info on the history side before I start getting all artsy and Loreena Mckennit-ish all over the place?


From the distracted bard,
Judith

"Mar'gef" might be styrash for "water fork/separation," implying a pace where one river diverges into two, but beyond that, I don't know.

Actually there is also one occurance of the Mr'gf on the site, at the entry on the Great Floods by Wren.

Always make sure that if you search for a Styrsh word with the Search feature, that you type in the precise pronounciation key: "mr'gf" in this case:)

yep - was supposed to be the main Ylfferhim bardic work, dealing with the seperation of the Quallian from the main body of the Ziephyranian. A written copy is also to be found among the Quealhoirhim tomes.....

Does that help? I can give more detail if you like, but I would hate to squash poetic licence....

That helps heaps, actually.  It may be a while before I'm regularly back on, and I owe Art some RPG rooms first
(ducks, looks guiltily over shoulder in case the Sage is standing ready with a fish...  :fish  )  ... but it IS  a project I'm going to do!  A nice archaic elven ballad is not something I can pass up... :kiss

I was thinking. In your awards interview, A little something from the awards front, when you were giving advice to new webmasters. You mentioned how to try and make every browser compatable with the website.

How about making the search engine find little things like "mar'gef", just in case you are not sure it's spelled "mr'gf"?

Well, that's a good idea, Winlok, but also something I'm not capable of realizing. The search engine is done by a free service, which I cannot influence at all...  Aside from that you'd need to modify the program in this direction, and it doesn't really look like an easy task to me neither...:

Tis a very good idea - 'specially when you have lazy Brits like me who can't be doing with accented letters all the time.

:hug  Judy you rule!

Considering we have a free service, it's vertually impossible to realize. I just remembered horror stories when I was looking up F'V'CL'R for some reason. ;)

Hmm... Yeah, I know what you mean. Best way to search for some weird words is to copy it from the site (e.g. from the menu) directly into the search textbox, then you don't have to worry much about misspellings:)

Hello everyone!

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
