Linking the spread sheet to the web site

Postby Wizord » Wed Jul 13, 2016 7:24 pm

Is there a way to bring the spread sheet up onto the web site? I think it gets people interested in the game and it could be treated as a compendium and useful resource. But I will be sad that I can't spam peoples emails with the mud mailer any more.

You can link to it on the forums, it's a bit too spoilery to link on the official site IMO.

It's not open to the public, so linking it isn't going to do any good :P You have to be invited to use it. Patryn is the one that owns it. If he could transfer ownership to someone, maybe we could make it read-only to everyone and keep edit access by invitation only.

Can we make copies and take ownership of the copies? I have a copy made in case someone messed up the sheet.

Yeah, that's what I would suggest doing

Too bad google docs doesn't have git-like functionality. How awesome would it be creating a branch and having an "admin" of the original merge the changes? Surprised Google hasn't implemented that already.

Outside of that, could protect sheet everything. That would at least display a "do you really want to do this?" message in case you accidentally edit.

Or set everybody to comment-only, that way direct changes can only be made by a select few, but everyone can comment if they run into something that's wrong/needs updating.
