Tip.It Times - 6th November 2011

Recommended Posts

Time for a new release of the: >>>Tip.It Times!<<<

 

I'd like to remind people of the rules pertaining to Times threads:

 

[hide=Read these rules before posting in this thread]

Rampant flame wars have taken control of virtually every week's times discussion topics. The following guidelines must be followed when posting on this topic. Posts that ignore these guidelines will be removed.

 

1. You are invited and welcome to express like or dislike on articles and a particular author's writing style. It is not acceptable, however, to flame or personally insult an author. Posts that aren't anything but an attack will be removed from the topic.

 

2. Spelling and grammar errors can be reported to tripsis by PMing her and they will be fixed promptly. It is not necessary to post them on the discussion topic.

 

3. Off topic posts that do not discuss the content of that week's articles will be removed. This is not the place to discuss the direction of the times, how much you love or hate the times, etc. Off topic posts will be removed.

 

By keeping within these guidelines, Times discussion topics will mean more for the Panel and Administration than just a place for flame wars. Flame wars do not provide any useful feedback to the Times, which is mainly what we're aiming for with these topics: feedback.

 

This policy is effective as of now, November 17, 2010. Any posts prior to the creation of this policy may or may not be removed according to the new guidelines.

[/hide]

 

When replying please make sure to clarify the article you are replying to! Thanks!

 

If you spot any typos or mistakes in the article then please PM them to me :)

 

Enjoy the articles!

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Chuckled at the "Best Costumes" picture. Two guys in epic looking robes and armour, and finally ... the guy with the boxy looking Profound Platebody.

That's Castle Wars, bahaha xD

 

The idea is that people (I assume NPCs) go out on their bots,

Typo :P

There are few times I am sad about living in Sweden. One of those times was today, after having finished the RuneFest article. So much fun...And I missed it all just because it is so far to go there and I don't have the money to travel (poor student = me :( ).

Great set of articles, as always.

The 'resources' article described a hypothetical world that was pretty much the way WoW has been for the past 4 years. So yes, there's obviously a market for it, not really the same market that RS is currently aimed at perhaps, and it would be taking RS from its own niche into a more competitive niche. Sounds like a bad idea to me.

Runefest article was neat! Fictionals were good this week as well, maybe the two black/white knight storylines will crossover?

 

I personally would rather not have my story crossover (no offense to the other authors), simply because I already have a whole storyline mapped out, although not to the end yet; Chapter 2 is already in my head and ready to go soon. :oops:

 

Plus it didn't work out too good when we had Saradomin's Sun, War Running, and A Dying Flame in previous years it feels like, i.e. the story was great, but it's hard to mesh the stories together when you don't know what the original creators had in mind.

Can do a crossover after both storylines are pretty much finished.

That Grande hot chocolate with no whipped cream gave me the caffeine I needed

 

Hot chocolate doesn't have caffeine. :P

 

Really enjoyed the Runefest article, the pictures made me wish I was there!

Does too! :P

 

The very small amount of caffeine found in cocoa may also be a concern, though a typical eight ounce cup of hot chocolate contains nine milligrams of caffeine, while an eight ounce cup of coffee may contain up to 133 milligrams depending on the brand.

 

Just not a lot :-w

Well, chocolate does contain theobromine, a compound very closely related to caffeine. Iirc the difference is one active group (methyl vs NH

-group.) [/chem nerd]

The tour of RuneFest was a great read. Thanks to Tripsis, Mage_UK and Siobhana for doing a great job representing us - even if you did fail miserably at the pub quiz. Perhaps next year you guys should have more quiz and less pub. :wink: :lol:
