Dreamers and Doers[edit]

  • Just added that to the homepage. Got it from the old forum that is no longer up and running.

Please allow me to share an excerpt from Teddy Roosevelt's 1910 Citizenship in a Republic speech, which I am sure many of you are familiar with, which rings true to me every day:

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

And I was not the man in the arena, you were, but "everybody" thinks it's beautiful to take a breath. Novo Navis (talk) 21:20, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Aardvark! It's going to take several weeks. Novo Navis (talk) 21:36, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Why aren't SVG working???[edit]

Separating Eric Links from Community Links[edit]

  • We should add all of Eric's links, like Facebook, instagram, twitch, etc.
  • Doing this will make the community section too long probably, which means it makes sense to have a community section for community links and an Eric section for Eric links.

Active Discussion is in Discord[edit]

Things we need to fix[edit]

  • We've started getting spam. Now it's time to lock down new user creation or it will get out of hand.
I'm actively watching the bots/vandals. I'll have time over the weekend to clean things up more. Right now I've temporarily locked down new user creation. --BeefSandwich27 (talk) 16:39, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

Discord[edit]

Invite expired from link

We're aware that the Discord link is expired. We commented it out until it gets fixed. 12:19, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

Big Cover Image[edit]

We should remind Brandon to upload a somewhat smaller version of The Portal cover image on the homepage. It's currently larger than it needs to be and sometimes loads in super oversized before the CSS kicks in. (You want it kind of bigger for retina displays, but not quite as big as it currently is.) --BeefSandwich27 (talk) 12:32, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
