Discussing: New feature

New feature

Thanks to the creative and evil suggestion of Shadow 975, the factsheets have a new feature. We can now put links in the text box to other characters bios. Some have been done, many have not. (Check out any of Elrond's family or Denethor's family for an example.)

If anyone wants to add links use the form of

a href="../resources/char_bio.cfm?SCID=11" class="bodylink">Bilbo

and add < in front of the a. The SCID number is from the address bar and changes with the character, then replace 'Bilbo' with the appropriate name.

This took me a few go-throughs, feel free to post or email any questions.

Re: New feature

I would like to know how "associated" a character has to be in order to be in another character's bio. I know the immediate relatives (parents, children, and siblings) are most definitely to be on, but what about, characters like Glorfindel? Should I put "Turgon" and "Elrond" as his associate character, since they are his lords? What about Cirdan? Would Gil-Galad qualify, since he was like his foster-son?

I've been hurling some of these at myself, so don't feel bad. I don't have an answer, either.

What does everyone think? Put on your 'author' hat and tell me what would be useful.
