Well fellas, I think I've been thinking about starting a new thread since I can no longer edit the original post with updates / version numbers / changes to links as they happen.... etc. It sucks we'll loose the hit count (at about 190k at the moment), all the replies, dev posts, etc...

And people will have to update their bookmarks (which I'm going to try to use bit.ly's new URL editing to redirect the old bit.ly/stoshipchart to the new thread).

Hopefully, I can get a dev to re-sticky it.


UPDATE:
I read through some posts from the Devs about the forums, and unless I missed it, they don't seem to be saying "Editing past posts" to be a problem that they're working on. Am I wrong? Are they, indeed working on it & I just missed it?
Should I just sit tight, or go for making a new thread?

I think you should make a new thread, Spidermitch

If you can't keep your charts up-to-date, your effort will quickly become wasted. It sucks that you'll lose this massive thread, it really does... but people love your work. They can easily change their bookmarks and all that.

And by making a new thread, you'll make a post under your own name, instead of Archived Post. That way, you can edit your charts to new changes.

And once a dev is aware, they'll happily re-sticky it :smile:

(And on the 'editing past posts' issue, I read something about that. They tried to keep the Archived Posts under original names, they really did, but it caused unacceptable security issues or something like that... so they relucantly kept it as it now)
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

Thx for the reply bud. Yeah, I thought I saw something somewhere about the security issue. Just thought I'd post here to make sure. I hope this weekend I'll be able to make some much-needed updates to the Shuttle/Special Shipchart with the Stalker & Freighter as well as continuing with the shield mod HUD on the FED chart.

LINK TO NEW SHIP CHARTS THREAD:

Note: I'll be working on getting links corrected on the post there, as well as the bit.ly link, if I can. Please use the new thread for all new posts / comments / suggestions, etc....


It's been a fun few years with this thread. Kinda sad to leave after 623 posts, 190,708 forum hits. See everyone on the new thread!
