Hello everyone. This is my first attempt to get all the news and gameinfos from Icesus into the forums into neat categories for quick browsing. This first edition contains everything I could find from the year 2008. If successful, I will post 2009 and 2010 editions and then start doing "live" quarterly updates ie. Q1 2011 and so on.

Any and all suggestions and feedback is appreciated. I'm especially unsure about the way I categorized the news as well as the layout of the post. I know it's messy and I could really use some tips. Let's just say I dislike phpBB and I'm not very good at using it :)

Some of the early 2008 news are missing time stamps because 'last news' doesn't actually show all the news, only the first 500 or so.

    [Other] Belannaer: Added "most hurt" option to cast command. It will make your spell target player with the least health in your party at the time you start to cast the spell, not when it actually finishes. If everyone is full
    health or you are alone it defaults to the caster himself.
    [Command] Belannaer: Wizcall command is back. If you need help from wizards with something please use this command. Your message will be shown to all wizard in game and stored for future reference.

    [Coding] Belannaer: Coding opportunity! To change vast amount of npcs into new talk system they need to be changed manually one by one. You can help in doing this if you already have an access to developement site. Just contact
    me if you wish to help and preferably think yourself beforehand which npcs you would like to change and why those in particular should be changed.

    [Performance] (Wed Sep 3 13:23) Belannaer: Server machine booted for some currently unknown reason. If you lost something or something seems odd let me or some other wizard know. If your booth is missing go where it was and ask a wizard to come and restore it.

Some people make use of the CODE tag when pasting such lists, would look like

But it is really vanilla and without eyecandy. What it does do, however, is that it keeps each letter the same width. I myself enjoy such lists, but that's just me. It might be more useful to use the bolds, italics and underlines, possibly even colours?

When will we be seeing the rest? :)

Icesus is not just my life - it's the lack of it.

I tried the code tags but there's no bold/colours available in code so I dropped that idea.

Rest of the news are coming when I have time as it wasn't exactly a copy/paste operation (well mostly it was but not exactly Wink ). Hopefully at least 2009 before this week is over.
