So, I got an idea while working on the Town Directory. What about a directory of more specific links, like links to particularly interesting and historical events in Town, either Old GitP Town or Enupnion Town? Could be stuff like the first arena battle with Lykan and Mortia, or other things like first appearances or strange happenings.

It's fun to remember those old times and funny moments, but it's not always easy to find them again, especially not if they're hidden somewhere deep in one of the endless numbers of Trog's threads. I think it could be nice to have a list of those things.

Sounds good, or would it be a waste of effort? Other thoughts?

Sounds interesting. I, for one, am interested in seeing major events in Town's past. It might be tricky to decide what's worthy of being included, and it could be hard to classify, but it could be fun.

Things like the first appearance of now popular characters, significant deaths, and plots/events referenced in Hawkeye's comic could all be interesting.

The only major flaw I could think of is that some of them skipped around in threads.  You'd need to link to different threads to get a whole story.

For instance, when the Godruped kidnapped Atreyu, you'd have to start in the street, I think, then move to the beach, then to Inari's Mirror temple, then to the Mirror Town thread.  Also, you could link to the posts in Inari's or regular Trog's for the minor parts those played in Atreyu summoning help.  

But if someone is okay with that, then I think it'd be great.  

Or you could just simplify and link to the major sections, and fill in the details on the smaller parts in the summary.

The other problem I can see is that this would take A LOT of work trawling through the depths of GitP Town.

I can see the problem. Maybe links to whole plots should be avoided, and only links to specific parts of the plot that were particularly interesting. As you said, only the major sections.

I wouldn't want to be left to do that alone, which is part of the reason I posted here to see how much interest there is. If everyone helps out by adding a little at a time, it shouldn't be a problem

I had another idea too. Maybe we could do it like the old character thread, where everyone could have a post wherein they could link to events regarding their own characters, like first appearances and when they did what. Then in the first post could be links of more general/universal interest, as well as a list of those character specific posts (if there should turn out to be more than a few).

That way the first post wouldn't get filled with all sorts of links of less interest (to the majority, anyway)

Sounds like a good idea if you're willing to put the work in...

On a slight tangent to this point I've been thinking about the complete town history of my characters with links to where this all happened. Any thoughts on this?

I've been thinking of a properly written, complete Town history for a long time. It's a nice idea but seems like an impossible task. Sticking to just your own characters sounds much more feasible, and if a lot of people did that, perhaps it'd end up as a complete Town history anyway. Sounds like an interesting idea to me.
