Ive converted the Ultimate Uplink Guide so that you can now view it online without having to download the file, should you so choose. You can check it out here - > http://guide.modlink.net/

great! now we don't need to explain everything over and over again to the newbies, we can just point them to Icepick's link and everyone will be happy (and this is good for Icepick, since traffic on his site should increase by referencing to it). :)

Can you do the same for PB's gateway guide?

I could, but I would rather leave that to PunisherBass if he wanted it doing.

Yeah Iris, I'm over protective of my work. The PDF version of my guide is the first thing I've ever farmed out to have someone else do something with it. I probably will make an HTML version some day, but rewriting the guide has drained my creative resources.

well noted, mods. anyway i think everything's pretty much better now, PB's gateway guide in PDF format which anyone can download, and Ice's Uplink guide in HTML format which anyone can visit and view.

either way, making them more accessible and user-friendly to us is what really counts.

Yeah. What's wrong with a little tag - in HTML, even, so invisible normally - reading "Formatted by Icepick"? You'll still have the copyright, and the users will be the better for it.

Ein, shut up. It's my stuff and I can be as over protective as I want. If it was anything other than a little conversion then I would of done it myself. Most of the time I won't let anyone other than myself to touch my work.

Ease up on PB.  Just because you may not be protective of your work doesn't mean he can't be.  Even if there would be no harm in someone else doing it, he still has the right to say no.

Maybe he just wants to do it himself sometime later?

sorry bggreen, im just a praticalist... his guide being in HTML would benefit people, thus is should be done... i dont have time to worry about WHO does it... as long as its done! And tbh, there is no way in hell he can stop anyway going to file -> save as html in word in his new version then putting it online. PB ur just far too stuburn... get over yourself.... and do, as ur guide so often claims to, HELP people!

Such idealism, and time wasting pisses me off....

Honestly. What is the problem with someone else formatting it if it helps people?

Why the hell does the way I do things bother you so damn much? You don't seem to grasp the idea that it's mine and I can do what I want with it and I don't have to answer to you or anyone else.

If anyone needs to get over something then it's you. If you want your stuff on every site on the web and want to charge $100 per download then I wouldn't be bugging you about it. I wouldn't be harassing you because they are your creations and they are yours to control, so why the hell do you think you have the right to bug me about mine?

...
I never said you didn't have the right to control your work. Not that at all. The exact opposite, in fact. I was saying it would be a service to the users to have the guide ported to new formats.

Are you saying you aren't letting anyone to because.... you can? Cause it seems like you're saying that.


On a tangent: Why are you always so defensive about stuff? It seems like you're constantly going out of your way to be offended by people. Don't you think you need to get over that?

Sorry adriac, that was directed at einstein.

AWOL is my baby. I've built up it up from nothing over last year +. I've made all my gateways, guides, and the website on my own without help. And I don't see why I should have to take any flak for being protective. I've always worked alone and I will keep it that way. I don't want anyone else touching my work.

And I do plan to make an HTML version some day, but not right now. People wanted a PDF version for a long time which they finally got and now they want an HTML version as well. I'm only one person, give me some time.
