Crossology 101 Lifts Off the Ground!

Ninva Reports​

Seth Cross is the big guy around here. But he's more than a young man working a day job or a administrator. Seth Cross is a genuine writer. Seth has proved to be a brilliant speaker, writer, and thinker. He's a bit blunt, which is his claim to fame. Thus there isn't a surprise. We all knew that Seth will one day start a blog. And again I'm not surprised to find out that the blog is actually a good one. Crossology 101 is a excellent read. It is also interesting to learn about someone important to the community. You may subscribe to Seth Cross's blog as a google user.

WE Update

Romek Reports​

The World Editor Help Zone has been full of activity - as always. The contest results have been released, with the winner being Builder_Bob, followed by emjlr3. Both of these were very impressive spells, and I suggest you check them out as soon as possible! The next contest will be up soon, however, it probably won't be a spell contest. That's as much as I'll tell you; the rest is a surprise! ;)

A new version of JassHelper has been released recently. We're now on version 0.9.G.1, and a few new features have been introduced in this version. One of which is 'modules', which are essentially fancy textmacros for structs.

If you have anything World Editor related that you think could go here, feel free to PM.
This includes, but is not limited to, project advertisement or updates.

Resource of the Week:
I'll be starting resource of the week, which I'll be including in this space. So be sure to watch every week!
If you have any decent suggestions, feel free to PM me. The featured resource will also get rep from me, and anyone else who wants to.

The first Resource of the Week is [thread=76409]Cohadar's Perfect Unit Indexing (PUI)[/thread]. It's one of the most commonly used systems out there, and for good reason. It's the best indexing system there is, and it provides multiple ways to attach structs to units (Which is a very common need of mappers). There's even a simple, understandable tutorial for everyone who wishes to use it. Congratulations Cohadar.

Graphic Art Update
undeadorcjerk Reports

We're back with this week's Prose of the Week article! WOOOO!

Starting us off is DeviantArt's announcement that they are selling the five best artwork of all time on posters. Thats right people, the five best. I hope you have a 24" by 36" space on your wall for these monsters, the best part... $15 each. Go to DeviantArt Poster Series 1 to buy yours.

Next I need to say that the Wacom: Bring Your Vision to Life contest ends on May 19th. Just give Wacom your version of good vs evil and win a bunch of goodies. Remember the goodies.

For the featured art, I just have to feature Chronoscape- thundersnow by =alexiuss. The amount of detail put into everything and the brilliant colors make this one an insta-fave.

I've you have a suggestion for the next featured art or if you have a news tippet that you want seen in this article, pm me and I'll stick it in for you. Untill next week, later.

Humor Hour!
Pineapple Reports

The days seem to grow longer as we approach summer, well, you know, for those of us in the northern Hemisphere. (That’s the one that matters) You probably find yourself thinking to your self. “Huh, its almost summer, break. I wonder if I locked the door? Oh, I should visit the Humor Forum of far more often than I currently do!” Alright, I’ll accept that may not be true (We don’t all wonder if we locked the door.) but you must come to terms with a few things to truly experience the humor zone to its full potential!

There is a few things you should consider when living life in the humor zone! We will start with perhaps the most important one. Pineapple loves you, no, not really, he will bitch slap you with all his powers (If he feels limited, he’ll just get Miz to do it, that's easy enough). Pineapple hates your ideas, not true, nothing satisfies the sexy beast of a fruit more than a good idea he can steal and claim as his own. That’s all fine and good, but how does that improve your enjoyment of the humor zone? Obey the rules and you will have fun, send in suggestions and you will have fun.

Now, lets get to some more serious matters, thread stealing! Have you ever seen a video and thought “Whoa! I would love to steal this thread so others think I posted it!” Well, the easiest way to steal a thread effectively is post a related link in the thread. If they posted a video of dinosaurs eating bananas and quoting Shakespeare, then post that comic of Shakespeare writing a play about dinosaurs! Remember, your not high jacking the thread, your stealing it; and as we learned last paragraph, pineapple seems fine with that.

Lastly, always remember that your links, videos, or anything humorous! Post them! Content is an amazing thing, the more the Humor forum gets the less chance AceHart has to say that the humor forum, in fact, lacks humor. When you can help stop AceHart from making sarcastic and hilarious comments you are doing a good job. Well, maybe not.

Song of the Week

Intro with Music

Just Music

Prose of the Week:
"Untitled" by Jimpy

"Care to be

Don't leave joy in this world;
of wasting chaperons.

It seems we have a problem;
The events of time can establish the movements of favor.

So long as we leave be, can we hesitate to relieve me?"

Jimpy sent me a letter last week. He wanted to see if I liked this poem, which he called "possibly perceived as absurdest poetry." I liked the fragmented feel to the whole poem. There is obviously a more deeper meaning, but you'd have to figure that out for you self. Post your opinions.

This is a good issue indeed. :D

Where's Smith and his comics? I'm pretty sure Knight's written a few scripts for the comics, it's just the drawings that aren't coming. :(

Ugh. Comics are done for, are they?

I'll see what I can do.

Until I find another artist, I could get by using stick figures.

Er, I suppose I could do some of the comics. Examples of my recent art are up on the intarwebs if you're interested.


Frog blast the vent core!

I could also help with comics every now and then, I'm a pretty good artist, but I don't have a scanner or tablet so everything I do would be with a mouse, which is not a tool that I am so great with. But whatevs

I was considering bringing GH back, actually, in Black and White.

Til I realized that meant using the scanner/printer in the living room. Eh.

Why would you put the comic up BEFORE the Prose?


Hippopotomonstrosesquiped aliophobia
It's for the ones that were missed. There must have been at least 2 issues without the comic in them.

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
