Posted Over 13 Years ago by Riven

[unparsed]Hi there! Whether you've got a major conworld project, or especially if you just like adding things here and there, this post is here to show you small things you can contribute to with your conworld without getting overwhelmed.

[unparsed]Still working on it, guys...

EDIT: GODDAMMITTT, just finished everything up, overloaded the post size, and when I clicked back, it was all gone. Oh well, I suppose I'll get to the rest tomorrow night, and this time, I'm leaving out the cultural TC's (mostly because I think they're a waste of forum space)

[unparsed]Xhin, sorry to hear about that. This is why it's so important to compose in notepad or something.

In the very least, I always select my text if I write more than a few lines and copy to the clipboard before submitting.

Every now and then I accidentally do a Google search for an entire post, but it prevents me from losing things these days.

[unparsed][quote:f5cd76ea42="Xhin"]…. I'm leaving out the cultural TC's (mostly because I think they're a waste of forum space)[/quote:f5cd76ea42]
You really think the "Cultural Translation Challenges" are a waste of forum space? :cry: :crybaby: :sad1: :sad10:
I think I started more of them than anyone else, and I really enjoyed all the replies!
Maybe the ones no-one ever answered were a waste of forum space, but I don't know how I could have known they would be until they'd been up for a while.

But whatever it takes to save the forum.
