TheHelper City - the MyMiniCity days...

Man I remember the first time I logged on and saw this minicity thing. I think at the time it was on the front page perhaps? It's been a long time but man that city got BIG!

I agree with Firecat, this is an awesome compilation! Keep digging stuff up. It is fun to read--some threads I recognize, and others are completely new (but juicy/nostalgic nonetheless).

Added a whole bunch of information to the Banners and Looks throughout the years page
As well as a bunch of historic banner graphics and layouts.
Added the Prolog to the Index.
Finished up the MVP path sections all to to their own posts.

Currently I am moving sections to their own posts slowly and getting a feel for how I want to expand on each one as I go. Sometimes just expanding then.

Split the MVP Path Only part of the story off to its own post and stickied it in the Site History Forum. This will act as a secondary portal to the Story.

Don't forget me :p Half of the WC3 resource Forum is MINE :D

You have to remember though, I was not and am not very active in the World Editor area. It is best if you guys write your own history and post it. I am just not up to speed with everyone who helps in World Editor.

Is there any way I can permanent sticky this thread to the top of this forum instead of it cycling through the stickied posts?
 
General chit-chat

    and it will probably take a couple of tries to get the settings right
  • Varine Varine:
    It would but I can also just make sure I can return them. The system I have works, it's pretty straightforward and I tested it with a camera I have. All it really is is a little cartridge that holds the transparency film and a white light source behind it that projects the image into the lens
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll have to fuck with the light a bit and try some different lighting methods to get color accuracy, but I have IT8 targets for that
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    get that color accuracy :)
  • Varine Varine:
    They're really helpful for calibrating things because I'm really colorblind, so I'm not great at doing it by eye
    +2
  • Varine Varine:
    Well the long, slow slog of winter has officially begun here
  • Varine Varine:
    I have a bunch of community service I have to do, and I have a feeling there will be a lot of snow shoveling involved now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    don't know why people choose to live in that kind of weather :)
  • Varine Varine:
    Well
  • Varine Varine:
    My job is here
  • Varine Varine:
    I was born here man I didn't choose shit
  • Varine Varine:
    And also, I keep moving away and it doesn't get any better. I moved to San Antonio and shit froze there AND we had blackouts
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm back, suffering from severe jet lag.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Cold is following your ass around Varine - I just dont think I could handle a snowy winter.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Welcome Back Tom!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I hear that taking a Melatonin around your normal bedtime can really fix jet lag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, I also heard about that as well. I think I'm good. I'm just lucky it's the weekend so I have some time to readjust.

  • Varine Varine:
    It was a fucking blizzard today, shoveling was an effort in futility.
  • Varine Varine:
    Melatonin gives me nightmares
  • Varine Varine:
    They had me shoveling out the parking lot for the jail. Fucking pointless, they need a blow.
  • Varine Varine:
    Well they gave me a snow blower but it was too wet to do much with with other than compact everything. Oh well, the cop cars can get into there now when they arrest people I guess
