Seems after all, my design skills have improved a bit Twisted Evil
Can be found here: http://forum.median-xl.com/viewforum.php?f=40 (make sure to CTRL + F5 to update style files)

This was a fuckton of work and it's not even finished yet, sorting system almost done, but I plan on adding an appendix at the bottom (displaying which are the available versions, when and by who where they created, their respective download/changelog links), and also a statistics panel too, although that can wait.

I really hope people start posting guides more often, you WILL have a billion extra tools compared to this forum. It isn't obvious to everyone, but the guides section is the most important part of the forum (and most visited, mainly by guests). I also am considering TG rewards for posting guides (and maybe for obtaining badges).

New forums are exciting Cheers!

Still need class specific grouping though.


Something like current setup, but need the "general" section as well.(Like my current guide look out of places / not fair to class specific guide).


Might as well add some other specific sub catergorize.
1. Uber guide
2. Challenge guide
3. Ite / Shrine Crafting guide
4. Newbie guide


Wiki style probably better, but currently the guide sections are still bombarded by wall of text, making it hard for new player.
I know we have online documentation, but even that one is not newbie friendly.

From my experience, the more text you have the more newbie friendly the guide is. Median is a complicated game and when you put into words the information/knowledge used to build the character you end up with a wall of text.

Otherwise you end up with a gear list and a paragraph on ubers and the newbie in question has no idea how to proceed through the normal game and late game content, gets discouraged when the performance of the character doesn't match the expectations set by the (mini)guide and quits. That was my first median + guide experience as well back when I started the game a long time ago.

Similarly I always  Facepalm  when I read people complain how "wall of texty" the docs are and thus we NEED a wiki (as if it would be any different); or complain that the game doesn't have and needs a better tutorial, without realising that creating and implementing such features is incredibly hard given the game's complexity. For example the closest arpg to median, in terms of in-depth character building systems, is path of exile and it too has no tutorial and an incredibly long-winded documentation (wiki).

we'll have a bit more stuff like item/skill bb code tags, maybe even some formatting tags, so people will have more control

I'm feeling like transferring my guide to the new forum and finishing it there. Is this a right time to do such a thing? Will the guide section in the new forum be wiped out for testing purposes or will it stay like it exists at the moment? Smile
