I have a question or two...

1. Will we be able to see the options from underneath out avatar(s) (under the banner) on the website?

2. How many people have applied? From what it sounds, nobody seems to have the time to help out.

Have a nice day.

Edit: Silly me, I already know the answer to question 1 (and they are still at the top).

I've only received one application so far.

For all you people who said you wanted to help, I can't really trust you to submit anything if you're too lazy to send in an application, can I?

I can aid in writing anything not actually hacking related (haven't really been doing much anyways), such as main site sections. I also can serve as a proofreader for all sections.

Hm... I would apply, but there are two problems: 1) I'm still not entirely sure what we'll be writing (if it's gonna be stuff like the application, I'd rather just leave that to the wiki-ites, since it seems much more appropriate for that kind of thing anyway), and 2) I'm somewhat lazy. If I could get #1 clarified, #2 might solve itself, though =p

At the moment I just want to set up some basic information on the games themselves, as well as the editor.  I'm not really looking for gigantic walls of text that describe everything in detail like you would see in a wiki, just a paragraph or two that serves as a brief overview.  I do not want theoretical, or opinionated articles right now.  Perhaps after the basics are up we can expand into in-depth articles relating to hacking the games, but for now I really just want to focus on getting some basic information on them, and editor up there.

Eh... I think I'll pass for now. I take on too many projects as it is. I might be interested in helping out later, though.

I'll help if I can, but I'm not the kind of person that can do data entry for extended periods of time. I have basic HTML knowledge, but anything that requires improvisation will be beyond me.

I know, but I figured that even if it wasn't required, it might help. Less work for the main programmers, right?

The website uses php coding, just basic html knowledge wouldn't be quite enough.

Well guys shouldn't we try to revive this topic again? It's sad to see our HOME page so empty ... except for what Atrius post often.

I know it's not really my business but i thought since this topic was forgotten we might need to give it a small push.

BTW Atrius ... should i try my application again? or not?

I've been thinking about it, but I'm not sure what I want to do. I might want to write some entries on different characters though.

Yeah... I really let the website fall through the cracks, didn't I?

The home page is meant to be a brief overview of what's going on in the community.  It shows the latest news post, and 4 newest downloads at the moment.  If you have ideas of other things to add it'd be appreciated, but all static information will be going somewhere else.


As far as applications go I wasn't particularly impressed by any in the first bunch.  Reasons include the writer completely ignoring what I asked for, spelling/grammatical errors, incorrect facts, or the writing style just wasn't what I was looking for.  I recall intending to send critiques to some applicants to steer them in the right direction, but for whatever reason never got around to it.


I believe what we ultimately decided for the site was to stick with just brief descriptions of the games & characters, and focus more on details that might be helpful with hacking the games.  Information such as animation variables for abilities, and other in depth stuff you wouldn't typically find at other Golden Sun fan sites.

That's a bit too much ..... since you wasn't impressed by the applications so i do not really think the blame falls on you.

This would be a problem .... since i don't think you got that many in the first place. And i do suggest that you try to send critiques, this would actually help since we do not want to have bad writers for the website do we?

True i do not recall any fan sites having information about the psynergy and there animations ... that would actually be really cool for our website.

Sorry if this was a bother for you ><

There's quite a few people on the forum who have conducted lists, especially Salanewt, about a year ago. Although old, it would still be useful.

Ah, sorry I meant to reply to it, but got busy and completely forgot.

Most of the information like that will be ripped directly from the game's data.

Salanewt: New patch up; waited until now to make it because it's such a basic change, but it's here now.
February 25, 2020, 03:20:41 AM
Salanewt: Hey! Yeah, we can now make recoil damage in GS. Would you mind if I ask for a link to this video? I'm really curious. :P

February 17, 2020, 04:51:46 AM
Fox: Also, I noticed since the very beginning of the game, that usually the dresser drawers (whatever you call them) have items in them.
February 17, 2020, 04:48:20 AM
Fox: (And I only recently got Karn, the fourth PC.)
February 17, 2020, 04:36:01 AM
Fox: Was playing Breath of Fire I.... and I must say.... that game's pretty bland.... listening to the same songs basically everywhere... and multiple NPCs saying the exact same thing.  Most of it plays about the same... a maze with common useless items in chests, maybe you'll get one or two fine equipment, but yeah.  ... I want to check #II again later, the game I remember playing like... over a decade ago.

Mastermind: holy crap this place still exists?
December 24, 2019, 09:33:09 PM
Fox: Even just plain Editor work can make some difference. = At least these forums are indexed on the Search engine. I was also curious about whether to um... go through all the topics on these forums and take all the important stuff out/placed into a folder for a bit of organization. Would be a bonus since if something ever happened to this forum, or if we ever wanted to start afresh again, it wouldn't be that difficult to do so.
December 24, 2019, 09:23:03 PM
Fox: One thing is for sure. This place has become completely dead. (Mostly because of Discord.)  = I don't think much will happen with this forum unless I, Salanewt, or someone else does a thing.

December 19, 2019, 04:39:45 AM
Fox: Okay, another thought... "gsmagic" could be the code name/project name... and "Golden Sun Magic" could be the more formal official name... (As in using both names.)  -  I still need to look into these other games as well... so who knows if it could be better to call it Camelot Magic if those should ever be supported to a decent standard.  Would probably be a long time from now, though. As I can be pretty lazy.
December 18, 2019, 10:01:39 PM
Foreclosure: gsmagic is fine
December 17, 2019, 05:44:32 PM
Fox: Also. I call my program "gsmagic" and not "GSMagic" =P (Not asking for correction/I being silly)... Had to call it something, so picked something short.  Maybe I should rename it to Golden Sun Magic later. *shrug*
December 17, 2019, 05:35:04 PM
Fox: (And "Golden Sun" instead of "GS" to reduce confusion that would likely not be there anyway... when "Golden Sun" doesn't take up much space to start with. (Imagine being new and thinking GS meant GameShark, or some other oddity. Ew.)) - All just thoughts...I'm still going with most of this not mattering that much, though.
December 17, 2019, 05:12:55 PM
Fox: "Misc. GS Hacking" = That name looks odd, so I'd probably just go with "Golden Sun Hacking"
December 17, 2019, 05:08:05 PM
Fox: I tempted to also suggest the Editors can go in the first category. Since the Editor is the reason this place exists in the first place. (I think.)
December 17, 2019, 04:53:19 PM
Fox: (combined = Not meant to be taken literally... but rather.... to generalize things more, since it apparently looks like we don't need the extra space no one is using.)
December 17, 2019, 04:48:49 PM
Fox: Worse still... we've only used those for Golden Sun content.... and there's not much there.
December 17, 2019, 04:45:53 PM
Fox: E.g. Maybe everything in "Assets & Discussion" could be combined with "Creative Works".... I don't feel like sound and art apply to general hacking anyway... that only comes into play when you have tools to insert them.
December 17, 2019, 04:40:26 PM
Fox: categories and/or forums
December 17, 2019, 04:36:48 PM
Fox: Everything else seems to be about right, though. Perhaps some categories could be combined(?), but doesn't really matter that much.
December 17, 2019, 04:33:03 PM
Fox: (I still think The Community section fits best at the bottom. =P)
December 15, 2019, 05:10:04 PM
Salanewt: Heya! I'm planning to get the demo up today, but if you can't wait then it's already available on the Discord.
December 15, 2019, 04:12:27 AM
Fox: (Then sell the badges on the Trade Center for a very high price... and give a lot of active people coins to buy them with, so they can basically transfer the coins to me if they want something... Gosh I could be a naughty hoarder. =P)
December 15, 2019, 04:06:19 AM
Fox: I'd buy up all the stock for each item too... but man... I think I'm too lazy for that. =P
