Re: A Very Puzzled Pirate
Thanks Greentail I had been struggling with that idea last night and i am glad that you brought it up. First off, i did not want to take away from what we already have in an excellent guide in YPPdia. That is not the purpose of this event. The purpose of this event is, however, to give players a chance to showcase their knowledge about YPP and and to display their teaching skills. I think even though we have a guide already, it could still be a great event for people to show what they know. If that means copying and pasting from the guide when you submit and entry, then it should be obvious and easy enough to give a lower score.
The idea is for people to bring what the normally do when training people in their own crews to the forums. If we do not end up compiling an end all be all guide for pillaging, than so be it. There are plenty of great resources out there, and i am not claiming to be pillaging's saviour as far as trying to put together a guide :P
Based on your points, I think it is appropriate to maybe rework the pillaging part of the competition. I like your idea of starting off at the YPPedia page, but i don't think that I should completely disregard the basics. I think what i will do is refer people to that page, and ask them to put what they feel is most important in their own words. Then, maybe add a few of their own pillaging experiances as to what works best, and things that aren't in the guide (like rumm and shot as you mentioned). We will have some repeat information, but i want to see how good people can present the information to a greenie who is just learning the ropes. There is a large difference between having the knowledge of how to do something and the ability to relate it to other. The latter is what i am really looking for in this part of the competition.
See my edit on the first post. Thats a great point and i think i adressed it. Mainly, i did not want pirates stealing each other's guides and submitting it as their own. The wording that I chose was too harsh though, and i think that it is ok for pirates to send links, or quote things, or copy from their previous work. I did not, however, want an all out copy and paste.
Thanks for your advice, I really appreciate it! You bring up valid and true points. Let me know if you have anything else!
