I have an Eriaian smoking club letterhead but,I'm not certain of attribution.

 I'dLove a page with a layout similar to cramul.us with overviews of and links to major projects.
Off the  top of my head;
Chao te ching
Black iron prison
Book of baloney
Spuder project
Hey Jim
Musings of a faceless man
Intermittens Collection
Dialeggo Discordia _ excuse mispelling
Failwhale apocolyspe and other stories

And anything else i may have missed. Were a lot better at creating high quality stuff than we are at pimping the fuck out of it.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Being able to print out selected pieces from the Spider thread and send them to random people on official letterhead would be awesome.

Placid Dingo, that's EXACTLY what we need - something that indexes the major community output... having a shiny output page will also encourage us to make more / better stuff. I'll make the task a bit easier by hooking us up with links...

it's crazy how many little documents and PDFs we have. As I was going through my scribd uploads, I found 3 more little pamphlets that I wrote. I definitely think it's a priority to create a better outward-facing portal to this material. All we've got now is a random link on the front page, and a sticky thread in the propaganda repository.

At this point, one of the challenges is finding all the output we have already created.

Do you want me to centralise everything we've got in a folder for ease of linking?

sure!

we should keep thinking about how to present this stuff though,

a folder full of links is terribly tl;dr, but it'll be nice to have one big central repository.


At some point a few years back, St Mae was passing around a giant archive of all this subgenius material. There were hundreds of megs worth of pdfs, audio, video... I realized that we've probably generated as much content here, we just don't organize it in a way that it's accessible -- unless you already know what you're looking for.

Things to consider: pd.com/blog? is it worth talking about this again? It would be the easiest way to present things, but we've had TERRIBLE success in keeping it updated.

Things to remember: a few years ago, trip was talking about redoing the domain's front page. He had a really sexy mockup. What happened to it?

Yes but if it's a list with a nice thumbnail and a 1 paragraph description for each entry it'd be super sexy! If someone writes the descriptions, I'll HTML the list+thumbnails.

If it turns out to be still to many we can cut it up in categories.

same thing that happened to your blog theme I was making :( like a Windows progress bar, it's stuck at 95%.


There's some other really cool ideas ITT, but I'll re-read and re-ponder them tomorrow.

Quick note;

I was using hey jim to refer to the PDF, spider project to refer to the music.

Which is probably also a good time to remind people to send me a lastfm address also if they want linkage to the discordian group there.

5. Easter eggs. The text "tl;dr" should trigger a script that replaces it with "I am lazy and unimaginitive."

I put a lot of Easter eggs in the previous forum incarnation. I will put some of them back, but new ones are better. If you got ideas (anyone) PM me and I'll see what I can do. Some things take longer to code than others plus I really can't get shit done unless I am really into the idea :)

Examples:
- Randomly once very 20 pageloads or so the text "Sticky Topic" would appear as "Stinky Topic".
- The "I JUST PM-ed THE MGT" thread decomposes into ZALGO-esque black crumbles towards the bottom.
- The "TURN EVERYONE INTO A ROBOT" button + the quest to undo this effect once pressed.
- I messed with some specific people a couple of times (only people who I'd know would appreciate).
- The chaotic random postcounts with crazy units were an Easter egg of sorts, I suppose.
- http://principiadiscordia.com/illuminati
- http://principiadiscordia.com/goatse
- http://principiadiscordia.com/secretforums (that one's Faust's work btw)
- http://principiadiscordia.com/devival2010
- there might have been more.

I had an idea about being able to click, drag, doubleclick, etc some innocent-looking elements on the forum and they'd unlock achievements or mini-quests or weird things and such, but I haven't really come up with anything particularly cool.
