After putting it off far too long, the forum has now been updated to the latest version. The old forum was actually too old to update easily, and relied on a mod that I only recently found for the newer version.

Please let me know if you find anything not working properly.

Oh, and one more thing, forum registration is open again :twilightsmile:

FAQ - Read This First!

Postby Arcane_Scroll » Mon Jul 30, 2012 1:57 am

Alrighty, there are a lot of very common questions that are being asked and we need a place where everyone can get those questions answered.

I'm having trouble using this message forum.
Here's the FAQ for the forums. I have no idea why the forum doesn't have a link to it anywhere so I added it. :pipshrug:

Who made money off of this?
No one ever made any money off of this. They never had, and they never will. Any money left over will be quickly donated to one of the many charities out there.

Isn't X person going to be mad you did this?
We can't say yes but we can't say no. The chances are unlikely since no money was made anywhere and everything that was paid for was precise payments for precise things.

Did you get Kkat's permission to do this?
Yes, we got Kkat's permission, and she was loosely involved in the design process. It's also her wish that we refrain from further proofreading the books, so that there won't be multiple versions floating around.

ABOUT ORDERING: As of now, we are not doing the second order. We will start a second printing after the first order has shipped and we have re-grouped onto a new website. Thank you for your patience.


How much will this book cost?
Check out this post for price estimates

Can I still sign up?
Not quite yet, we are in between printings and need to finish the one we are currently on before we can begin the next round.

Can you ship to (insert country that isn't the United States)?
Yes

Where are the PDF's?
Please see This post concerning the PDF files. They are now available for personal use only, not Lulu! Please read the restrictions.

Book Information
The book is being printed as a cloth bound hard back with a foil stamped title and spine. The paper is #50 uncoated offset book paper. The entire story is split up into five separate volumes.

What are the dimensions of the books?
Each book is 9 1/4 inches tall and 6 1/4 inches wide
9.25 in = 23.5 cm
6.25 in = 15.9 cm
The volumes' thickness, in order:
2cm
2.3cm
2.4cm
3.2cm
3.2cm

Is the number of available copies limited?
No, everyone that signs up and pays for a copy will receive one.


When will the sign ups for the second printing start?
There is no exact date yet, keep posted.


Is chapter 20.5 included?
Yes it is, at the end of book 2 with a note/warning attached.

Hope this FAQ helps answer a lot of new people's questions!

Lastly Refrain From Spamming
We know you have exciting things to say but as we approach the end of this production cycle we need to be able to see people posts asking questions about the book, pricing, and shipping. To provide a quality service we must be able to respond swiftly without having to dredge up important posts.

If you have further questions ask the admins
They are:

George Bushnell (Autunite)
Nathan Cartee (Rainbowdash64)
Alexander Petzen
Dylan Smith (Beatlebrony)
Connor Johnston
Christelle Carrier (Metapsionic)

Ok well since I'm either a noob or an idiot, how about an FAQ about this site as well? Although I guess you would need some frequent questions then, huh? Well, as I am unfamiliar with phpBB, I'm not quite sure how to navigate myself around. Most of it is rather self explanatory, but maybe I'm missing something.
You schooled 'em like a bunch of frost-bitten, flat-footed, molasses-eating, lead-pants-wearing, cross-eyed glacier-trolls riding slabs of plywood with sandpaper on the bottom!!! ... And we won some shiny stuff, too.

Now I can finally point people just to come here when they ask the book dimensions =D My life is... Pointless again...
I need to find another thing I can tell people about.
"Californian kids all go to the nearest forest to school and their worst schoolyard bullies are motherf***ing grizzlies!!"

I hope that I'm not so stupid to have overlooked this elsewhere on the forum but... is it possible to have a notification email when the second order production will start? That way we will not have to check the forum regularly.

but unfortunately people do not realise this applies to themselves as well. That includes you too.

I will look into it, maybe we can find a way that is both easy on us as it is you without privacy issues, though I can't make promises.

I don't think it will be that hard. Just make a topic where people can sign up for notification and keep a list in a SQL database of all usernames (strings) of the people who want to use it. Then, when the time comes, use that list with their connected mail adresses to send a noreply mail. :twilightsmile:

This RSS feed sort of already does that: http://book.fallout-equestria.com/forum/feed.php?mode=news

It contains everything that shows up on the front page, i.e., all the important news. It's just that this is RSS and not email, not everyone uses RSS feeds. Another advantage/disadvantage is that it shows all the news, not just when wave 2 starts, but that's probably a good thing.
