User Guides-General Discussion

Post by duskypack » Thu Oct 10, 2013 6:53 pm

Mod, sorry if there is already a topic like this. I didn't see one.

Here you can discuss the Game Guides. Tell us your fave, Make suggestion for users looking to expand their guides. I made this topic near the same time i made my own guide and i discovered how fun guides really are.

Enjoy this topic,

The road is now calling, and I must away.
Over hill and under tree, through lands where never light has shone.
By silver streams that run down to the sea.

Glad you enjoy making guides! Looking into the guides boards now, everything seems to have higher views than I thought they would -- being a bit "hidden away" in Tips, Hints, and Help, I was never sure that many people were actually seeing guides, good to know plenty of people know where they are!

(Thanks, HP :))

I wish there were more interesting, non-generic guides. I try to be unique when I make my guides (considering my third!). I'm also going to make my guides the first with pictures contained in the topic.

Have you ever read my giant boredom guide? Or perhaps 'How to go Beyond the Summer Journey'? If so, what do you think? My newest on has a thousand and something views.

Oh, and dibs on the first tablet edition guide :mrgreen:

I don't play the game any more so I haven't been paying attention to the guides for the game, but looking at those two now they're looking pretty good! Thorough and nicely coded. I do have one suggestion though regarding colors -- maybe try not to use such vibrant colors like the bright yellows and greens in the boredom guide. They can be a little harsh on the eyes, especially for people like me who don't want to get up to turn a light on at night :p If you need colors other than what WQ has already provided, this site is great for getting hex codes: http://www.colorpicker.com/
If you pull it a bit towards the white/gray/black side, you can get softer colors that are a little easier to look at.

Also as a general rule darker or saturated colors don't work well, try to use lighter desaturated. Easier to read.

I'm currently making a BBCode/expanded signature guide but its going slowly. Because I'm the laziest person on the planet.

Sorry 'bout the boredom guide, made it around two years ago.

Any guides you want to see?

The only suggestion I can give is tutorials with pictures added. Not everyone speaks English good so it could help. Although it would mean more work for the mods? :/

The pictures i'm trying to add make the whole thing spruced up and nicer, but don't really help that much :I


People still like pictures though o3o

I only just found the board like, a week ago. xD

The only thing I can really say about user-made guides is that the ones that have been proof-read and proven are the best. If you don't speak English well/perfectly then maybe shall I suggest that you have someone that does re-read it? Also, make sure you know what your talking about. But that doesn't apply to the ones about having fun and such. xD
