Basic Info : Biography suggestion (in General)

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] March 22 2006 11:24 AM EST

The biography we can enter in the Basic Information in the setting screen does not show up anywhere. Is it supposed to be hidden or is it not working right, or am i missing something entirely? Seems like everyone else should be able to see it or its kind of pointless since we all know who ourselves are.

Also a smaller bio for each character might be cool

Pit you rule I've been complaining about this for eons. In fact
my current bio is nothing but an all caps "WHERE DOES THIS SHOW UP?"

With the Wiki the way it is now, all this will take is a single link!

I would LOVE to have char bios!

I think this could easily be added with the help of one of the co-contributors if Jon is ok with it.

Long ago I asked Jonathan where the biography displayed. His response was something along the lines of:

"Yeah, the biography data is sort of like the DCM of the user page..."

Still makes me chuckle...

My user name is Guardian of the Glen. My character name is Whyspersym . My minions are all fairy names. I find it a little disappointing that no one can read where I took inspiration to create my characters from.

I wold like to know how to share my bio other than cutting and pasting. There are several characters I would like to read.

Any ideas or suggestions?

well i am going to cut and paste anyways

my characters are all fairie here goes to anyone interested.

Light slips 'round ageless trees Shadows dance on whispered breeze Faeries choose to gather here Tempting mortals straying near Look carefully, as faeries hide And wait for believers to come inside Keeping them for a year and day 'Ere longer if they wish to stay Ethereal magic fills this place Tread carefully throughout their space As nature's guardians, they defend Faeries protect both home and friend While caring for the earth each day Mischief and pranks are their way To remind common man of their pow'r As they enchant day and evening hour So leave a gift for faerie folk Underneath the tallest oak And, only, if you believe...then Can you enter Faerie Glen

It would also add more of an rpg element to the game, and I know some people would enjoy having a story behind their chars, and would or have spent time doing so.

it could be done with the wiki bit, but what would we do? a page full of links to biographies?

if so would it link it to the person's page? or do people make a page with there User name??

im not being negative i want to see this happen. so any suggestions?

There is a section in user info already, I wouldn't think it would be that hard to show it with the rest of the user info.
