  • So which do you prefer?Jumping onto outlines as we used to, or six months of preparation? Or something in between?

    So far, I have found this process very exhausting, but I'm not going to knock it until I see how it pays off in the actual episode planning. Our 'prep' time may have been excessive this season, but I think we did come up with some really good storyarcs (some of which we likely won't use, more's the pity).

    Sorry I’m confused about where to post stuff right now. Two ongoing threads with kind of parallel discussions.
    Haakon
    Haakon
    Yeah well at least we are active in both threads, so actually no one risks missing anything.

    I also think that we are rediscovering why the forums themselves aren't great for planning the blow-by-blow of individual episodes.

    Yes the threads tend to become hard to follow at times. Easy to miss specific comments.
    I had the idea to work in Olorin into this season, but ended up just imagining healers praying to Nienna, Irmo, and Estë, ... and Olorin.

    Yeah that’s better, thanks! My English is a bit simple sometimes, since it’s not my first language.

    To help nail it down, I would consider pleas to the Valar to be invoking, but pleas to Illuvatar to be praying.

    But if the terms match the corresponding Swedish terms at all, praying is a broader term. In Christianity, the term invoking seems to be used in various ways depending on what kind of Christian you are (at least Catholics or Protestants). Well, anyway, it doesn't matter, you're right.
    Boring complaint: Again problems with the Webinar on the phone. Really limits my participation....

    It also does not work on Firefox or Chrome. HOW do you use GoToWebinar? I have used it fine on Firefox with webinars from other presenters.

    I found the webinar ID now on the computer webinar so I could type it into the phone app and that worked! So it was a dysfunctional link.

    Faelivrin you register on the site and receive a link on the mail. Then you need to download the GoTo app/program.

    I use the GoTo Webinar on Chrome on my laptop. I don't typically have problems with it.
    So apparently there’s a webinar launching now? I’m going to miss it.

    The Goto app connection for my phone has stopped working now for season four. I can connect by using my laptop but that won’t happen today.

    Oh no! I listen on a laptop, so I don't know how to make it work on the phone :( You can try to watch on twitch?

    We're talking about the Frame today.

    The question was raised, can a moderator or admin move threads? I can move whole threads. I’m not sure I can move parts of a thread. Could->

    Agreed; I'd rather not, but at least I know how to.

    Faelivrin knows how to move posts across sub forums; I got into an argument about Amras getting KIA in the Second Kinslaying and her next reply was in the Feanorean Storylines, with the post before that attached.

    Well, actually the only thing I did was to quote your post, then copy that reply and paste it into a reply to a different thread. I don't have moderator permissions except in the Community Hearth and Creative Writing sections (don't know why I have those.)
    Oh it’s a session on Friday? I won’t make it. Sad because I’m kind of invested in Sets. It’s Sets, right? Anyway...
    Haakon
    Haakon
    I see. Sorry you won’t make it! I hope I will.

    I just want *someone* to be there to discuss locations, because as of right now, the slides are just some photos without any commentary, so...I could see that being confusing for the Hosts to go through. Like, "I'm looking at mountains, I think?"
    Haakon
    Haakon
    You’ve made slides? If you send them to me I could perhaps prepare some comments.
    Close to 90 degrees here, no rain for weeks, numerous forest fires all around the country. Trying to cool my head enough to be able to work.

    I remember a long-burning fire that happened near where I grew up about 15-20 years ago. Scary.

    You know there's something wrong when Sweden is warmer than Virginia in July! (Kinda like when the chinooks make it so Atlanta is colder than Calgary in the winter.)

    I’ll do what I can, if I’m there.
    Not sure I’ll be online this afternoon - sorry, morning - for the session. If someone would post the results in a thread, I’d be very happy!
    MithLuin
    MithLuin
    And....we're starting more or less....NOW!

    I tabulated the results, and will post them later today!

    Thanks! I attended a good part, but still missed a lot - from Caranthir and onward.
