The "You've been playing Wesnoth for too long when..." book

Post by dontano »

That thread in the Users' forum is very long, but kinda amusing. So why not making a document which includes... say, the first 500 "rules"? Or maybe waiting until it reaches 1000, so that we may collect them all in a single .pdf file.
Just an idea...

There are a lot of duplicates and pointless unfunny ones though. We'd have to comb through them and remove those.

Especially the "Don't go near a tree because it might be a wose" one. There's even one which makes fun of how often that one shows up.

And why on earth should it be a pdf? A plain text file would do just fine.

Not all people have pdf readers, after all.

Also, we have enough free time to sort through, as the actual content shows.

My proposal is to move all of the humourous forum threads into the wiki once development has ceased.

Sorry, development is not going to stop short of the apocalypse. (And not even then if it's a sissy apocalypse :wink: )
