If there can be no Christrage...

"For all that have fallen, a memory. For all that will come, a dream. For all that are, a haven. Always and forever, will be Christrage."

The Public Universes page is now up! While Atlas has always been designed with support for shared universes in mind (i.e. a group of users collaborating on one project), there is now a public index of both these projects and a new type of project, the open universe. In an open universe, you can create chapters and languages, but no one else can edit or add to them. This is ideal if you have a conlang or auxlang that doesn't require a whole universe portfolio of its own.

The Public Universes page is freely editable by logged in users, so feel free to add your own shared universes to the list. If you would like to create a new open universe, contact an administrator (i.e., me.)

Neštari Antyelyen - Her trajectory in life was marked out relatively early for a daughter of a landed houselord. Furious that her parents were forcing her into a marriage with a man she utterly loathed, through a good friend she hired twin Norse brothers to stage her kidnapping just as she was being trundled off to the estate of the parents of her would-be husband. Also kidnapped was the entirety of her dowry. Arriving safe in Christrage, she took that dowry and turned a large but run-down mansion near the dockyards into a clean and well-run brothel. Since she treated her girls and guys well, kept the premises clean and unquestionably safe, the streetwalkers of Christrage flocked to her, both allowing and forcing her to expand. Within five years, hers was the largest brothel in the city. She then married one of the city's richest men, who unfortunately (for him) died just two years later, leaving all his holdings to Neštari. With it she made one of the most powerful companies/syndicates in Christrage, one that strings around, through, and into the very fabric of the city. It is said she's eyeing the Mayor Admiral's seat (the highest and most powerful political position in the whole city).

The Messages system was originally designed just for internal site notifications, but now you can use it to harass other users of the site! Just look for the send message link on any user page, or the message link under any post, and spam away. (Note: please do not actually spam, or you will be excommunicated.)

This is an example of a universe news article. You can use an external RSS feed instead if you wish, but internal news articles can be edited by other project members and commented on by Atlas users.

Here's another feature no one knew they needed—every universe can now customize the top banner on the page. This example universe shows what the effect looks like. Go ahead and get decorative!

Although they're still a bit rough around the edges, languages, language families, and recursive wiki pages are now live. This means you can add attachments to any article in your universe's documentation and that dictionaries and languages can now be organized in a more structured manner. Existing content will be converted over after a bit more polish and testing.

Today we bring you (a) universe groups—the ability to let more people work with you on a universe—and (b) universe attachments—preferably images, you can now upload up to 50 files per universe. Recursive wiki articles are currently being tested and can be expected soon, with more room for more attachments.

The user profiles have been massively overhauled into a content-centric format. Now you can quickly see what everyone's been up to!

Future changes may include a public message wall, private messaging, and a contributions list, showing whenever a document is modified.

From now on, when creating a dictionary you'll have to set up its list of parts of speech. To do this, simply go to the edit page (under the dictionary title at the top) and click "Save". If you want to change the supported parts, simply modify the list. The names on the right will be abbreviated to the values on the left, and they will appear in the language dropdown as ordered. This update extends to the Dictionary Importer, which has also been updated to fix name collision issues between dictionaries.

It's not done, it's not pretty, but it's slightly better (in most ways) than just using MediaWiki: it's Atlas Universes! Stay tuned for actual usable features, coming soon.

Note: I found my oooooold Kanaši names document, and have worked most of the info in this post into it here. Not everything's there, but it's not all applicable to that specific subject so some stuff was cut. It's still canon, I'm just trying to keep the off-topic rambling in my documents down to a dull roar.

I feel like showing a half-written note of an idea. Not entirely sure why, something to do with my thought processes. Here goes nothing... (…)

I was not expecting this. Or the entry existing on creation, not waiting for any content to be added. Newness!

This is ATLAS. That is a temporary name. Maybe.
