Tips & Tricks 2.0!
We can rebuild it, we have the technology.

Rather than lamenting our loss, I thought we might take this opportunity to reorganize the ol' TTQA. Things had gotten a little top-heavy last time, so I'd like to hear your input on what you think would be useful or most beneficial to those coming here for answers. Hopefully we'll put together a helpful set of stickies while still keeping things concise.

Feel free to post if you've managed to dig up something that needs a new sticky or you have suggestions for making navigation here easier.

Re: Tips & Tricks 2.0!
Since you are reorganising all of this....

I noticed that some people have gotten rid of images and .avi files and such.

If a particular post is exceptional, could it not be republished within the YPPedia with images or content intact?

A forum is fine for discussion, but one needs to maintain their post if they have images etc... in them via photobucket or hosting movie files and it seems that if one has left the game or one has stopped caring, that they might delete these files...

This way, forums can remain more dynamic, as they should be and not static.

Just an idea...

I have done the navy mission, but the navy workers tend to be a poor example of how a real crew would perform. After 10 turns I'm out of tokens even if I hadn't taken any damage.
