Note about the Season 5 Fan Fics
« on: September 09, 2006, 07:06:32 AM »
Okay, you might remember that little discussion that happened in the episode directory thread a while back. I've decided that the next round (fifth season) of episodes should be much like the past one, with a maximum of 10 layouts. However, all layouts used in the fifth season will be open for use by anyone else without permission. This will limit the number of layouts ruled by individuals and encourage more people to write episodes.

This is the way I'm leaning right now, but if you think this is simply an awful idea, you can say so in this thread and I may reconsider if enough people say no.

that's a good idea but what if someone uses a layout with a room that someone else designed  and doesn't know its orientation and makes a mistake about what is in the room, what it looks like, or what the objective for compleating the room is?

alot of people are going to be saying  "thats not how that room works."

I gotta agree with Outer Space on this one. Perhaps if using another's layout, an approval must be given upon completion. This way the layout can be used creatively, and any errors encountered can be corrected before the episode becomes canonical.

I think things would move much more smoothly and concisely if there were more collaborations between episode authors.

I like it, to give others a chance.

I honestly dislike other people using other people's layouts. I might use my layout from the contest submission & I don't want people using my own rooms that I took the time to make without my permission. It's almost plagarism, which we've been having some problems with in the Episode Guide.

You are still the one who created the layout, and that will not be challenged.

I know, but I'm very protective about my things.

If someone wants to use a particular room or layout, they must do so with my permission.  I'm fine with it as long as people ask.

Sorry to bump this, but I've got a few things to bring up concerning Season 5.  We've got several unfinished fanfics here:

The Broken Sword of King Arthur
The Dirt Jar of Jack Sparrow
The Tattered Flag of Pearl Harbor

And here's the stats for Season 5 so far:
[code]   Red Jaguars   Blue Barracudas   Green Monkeys   Orange Iguanas   Purple Parrots   Silver Snakes
MedusasLair               1/1   0/1
Ndanyi 1   0/2   0/1   0/1   1/2   1/1   1/1
Dr. Thinker*      1/1         0/1   
Olmec      0/1            
Carveyfan               0/1   
Ndanyi 2               0/2   
the bamboo forest            1/1      
Season 5*   0/2 (0.0%)   1/3 (33.3%)   0/1 (0.0%)   2/3 (66.7%)   2/6 (33.3%)   1/2 (50.0%)[/quote]

[code]   Failed acquisition   Triple seizure   Did not escape in time   Team victory   Solo victory
MedusasLair      1/2 (50.0%)      1/2 (50.0%)   
Ndanyi 1   1/8 (12.5%)   2/8 (25.0%)   2/8 (25.0%)   2/8 (25.0%)   1/8 (12.5%)
Dr. Thinker*      1/2 (50.0%)         1/2 (50.0%)
Olmec         1/1 (100.0%)      
Carveyfan   1/1 (100.0%)            
Ndanyi 2   1/2 (50.0%)   1/2 (50.0%)         
the bamboo forest               1/1 (100.0%)
Season 5*   3/17 (17.6%)   5/17 (29.4%)   3/17 (17.6%)   3/17 (17.6%)   3/17 (17.6%)[/quote]

*The Last Gift of Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge is counted as a special episode and not an official Season 5 episode, so its stats aren't counted here.

I'll admit I'm a stickler for realism, but these results look like they lean a little too much toward certain outcomes.  There's that, and coming up with 40 episodes is taking a long time.  I mean, didn't Season 5 begin about six months ago? If anyone needs artifact ideas, I'll be glad to help.

I'm loving the term "triple seizure".  Sounds like Michael J. Fox on a good day.

Feel feel to use my temple layout--but just give credit where credit is
due.

Logging off,
Dr. Thinker

P.S. For the "Christmas" special, I won't count it in a status--it's
was just a special since Christmas was just around the corner when
I wrote that one, The Ancient Warrior, but you are free to do own thing. As Olmec states everytime a temple runs begans, "The Choices
are Yours, and Yours Alone." If I had to, "TLGOMS" is a team
victory--depsite having the two members being from different
teams.

All right, I've fixed the stats, which make more sense now that The Last Gift of Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge is not counted as a regular episode.
