Indulgent Tormentor is also not working; note the spelling. :)

So - the request has come up to split the 3 colored deck threads into separate threads.
I'm going to see about doing this later this week, unless there's a strong objection to doing so.

Thanks

I think it makes more sense as separate threads. No objection, your honour.

OK! I *think* I got them all, and all links are working fine.
Please let me know if you see anything in the wrong place, or anything like that.

Thanks!

Good job with that Khledar. I imagine determining what random bit of conversation was connected to which deck and/or colour combination was a major pain. Still better to do it now rather then when we suddenly get an influx of tri-colours down the line eh?

Its seems that the wedges now have real names thanks to the upcoming set. The new names are:

:w::b::g: Abzan
:u::r::w: Jeskai
:b::g::u: Sultai
:r::w::b: Mardu
:g::u::r: Temur


It will take some time getting used to the new names but I have been wanting an expansion based on those wedges for a long time. Finally!

It's nice to see them getting some love! OP and thread titles updated!

Upon hearing this news Lincoln will crawl out of his grave and cut down another tree out of disappointment.

Either way, here is a decent write up:

I wish they had gone with the enemy color as the main color for each clan, it only made sense.....

Greetings all!

There have been some discussions around re-posting decklists that already exist, with the new "fancy" tags, as created by Mr P.

First, I'd just like to thank Mr. P for all of his hard work in coming up with the fancy decklists - they really look great!

Second, there has been some discussion as to if just re-posting a decklist, rather than editing an old one, is spam. Currently, we don't see it that way. However, as we've seen, just posting a decklist without any content doesn't really add much content. If would be helpful to, at the least, link back to the original discussion when re-posting a decklist, so that people can see the thought process that was behind the card choice. Or, of course, you can just edit the original post with the updated decklist, and make a post linking to that, to let people know.

Of course, if it seems to become a problem, we might re-evaluate that stance, and ask people just to edit their original decklists.

If you have any questions or comments on this, you can either post them here, or feel free to PM either myself, or Gobo_Mastergear, if you'd prefer.

Thanks all!

I feel compelled to comment on this.

There are plenty of people who wander in here, post decklists with no accompanying strategy addendum, and no one cries "spam". Decklist threads are for decklists, after all.

I do understand why reposting old content without adding to it is frowned upon, but I thought that MrP's planner was reason enough to reformat all my lists and repost them. To me, substantially changing the list's visual format was adding enough content to justify a new post.

Was it lazy to just repost them? Sure. Was it wrong? I don't think so.

The majority of people who post decklists with no accompanying strategy are newcomers who don't really understand the culture of the forum, so are not held to the same standard as someone with thousands of posts. They're generally politely asked to provide some explanation next time if they want feedback, or their lists are simply ignored.

There's a big difference between a newcomer posting a single new deck without explaination and a veteran simultaneously reposting a dozen old decks without explanation, which also had the effect of burying newer contributions from others by dominating most of the first page of the subforum. It's the reason others simply edited their OPs, even if it took more work.

I don't think criticism was unfair as a result. It wasn't so much the action of reposting a deck that I personally felt was disruptive as the volume of posts made within a small window and how it buried the contibutions of others without providing much in itself due to the missing strategies.

If people are going to repost their old decks in the new format, I'd just suggest maybe not doing it in bulk.

I have a funny view on it. If the deck is really great, then it's fine. If the deck is no good, then it's a crime.
