Hehe...

No, i´m not finished, but it wont take too much more time...just about 6 pages left to clean.

The reason why u don´t find all those threads is, i changed the "cleaning-style" a bit after i talked to the other mods.
I moved many threads in the Maphaven or the Lands of Axeoth (about 100 i guess...), but did not post "moved" anymore in these threads, so there are not 30 "2-years-old" threads on the first 2 pages of the Lands...
And also, when i closed a thread, i didn´t post "closed" at the end.

So my work now is a bit more invisible....u only can see the "dwindling" amount of pages the Library has, as a proof of "cleaning"...

I think i will finish the cleaning this week, latest in middle of next week.

Then i will start to overview all the stuff again and perhaps revive some good old threads again..

@conan
that's it with the strategy threads, i'll continue with the skill threads as some of those as opposite alligament series is quite confusing

Also note that you have misplaced the threads Best Animated Spell in Heroes I, II & III and Best spell combo into the skill section and the threads The 8 skills of a hero ,Poll:What is the best type of special skill a hero can have? (under the name hero skills) apear twice in ToC ,


Skill selection threads

Secondary Skills you avoid and prefer for your hero?
-debates
-everyone presents therir uniquue skills combination
-here you have some info about demon herding by RSF

The 8 skills of a hero
-a long thread where everybody says anything

How you like your Primary Skills
-Attack&Defense vs Spell power&knoledge

Poll:What is the best type of special skill a hero can have?

Angelito's series

How do the logistics and pathfinding skills work exactly?
How does the necromancy skill work exactly?
How do the offence and armorer skills work exactly?

Opposite allignament series by Gimmickless  

Part 1: Necromancy vs diplomacy
Part 2:Leadership vs Luck
Part 3:Intelligence vs Sorcery
Part 4:Logistic vs Tactics
Part 5:Armourer vs Resistance
Part 6:Eagle Eye vs Mysticism

H3 skill learning percentage
-a nice chart by xarfax detailing the probability fror each heroes class to receive a certain skill

Necromancy

The key to victory? (long)

-a solid argument thred in favour of might heroes
-a thread worth reading even though it cames from an offliner

Artillery and Ballista


I've finished the work for the skills section of the ToC!I'll continue with some more later

OK boys and girls, earlier than expected, cleaning the library terminated today...

Library was cleaned from all threads which belong to other forums here on board (threads were moved).

All threads where questions have been answered or there have been found solutions for stated problems have been closed.

SPAM threads or threads which didn´t belong to any other forums here have been deleted or sent to the Wastelands.


The next thing i wanna do is, to look into all the older threads to find some more good posts which were worth to give out some +qp.

If u find some posts u feel they are +qp worthy, feel free to post them here, so we all could have a look and give our opinions...

Tigris,
I updated the toC with what you have provided.
Very nice work. If you want, you can do it, post it here and I'll update the ToC just like I did.

I will also check out the dead links.

PS. I think Tigris should get a QP if he keeps this up. That is really usefull for newcomers and neither me or Angelito had time to do it. Plus it is his own new idea.

yes, i'm happy with that!
one exception though,about my thread "how to attack effectively" i've wrote something like:"some not so good pics(the're mine)". you might want to replace that with something like "the're tigris's " or smth like that. That was just a thing for you guys to enjoy/laugh about +some fetish of mine
@conan: please insert the notes i did for frank's thread in toh forum in ToC too. i know it's not posted in the library, but is one of the most valuable threads around

I can't find those comments you made... are they in the ToH forum? I looked on the first and second page but did not find anything.

OK, I finished everything (wheeeeew). I've been at it all day!
A couple of remarks to help me do all this:
1) could you add your work in a new reply please so I don't miss it?
2) Would it be possible to not post links to which you do not comment? It makes it difficult for me to follow...

Keep up the good job, it's some real good help you are giving here.

I can't find that double post at the moment either.But i'm preety sure i've seen it.Who knows? Maybe i got lost in so many links..
instead i found that the threadSiege strategies is present both in the strategy and in the town section.
Some sugestions:

1. I took Xar's thread: collector's cut from the last part of the ToC and put it to the strategy section as i think it's clearly a strategy thread and a good one nevertheless.I fear that if it is to remain at the bottom of the ToC it will be missed by most people and that would be just.. not fair. In the same situation it's Angelito's How do the rewards of the dragon utopias work exactly? .

2.about the last section in ToC:it consists of links to heroes related sites and some other threads that IMHO belong elswhere(in a different section)
EG:how to import mapandhow do i decipher the abbreviations other online players use? belong in the help threads section etc.I'm sure there is a place for each of those threads somewhere.

3.also the patches/updates section should imho dissapear(the patches&updates go to the help threads section and the rest can surely find a place somewhere else)

4.When the sumarising is finished as last minute details, maybe you could leave one row clear between threads,cos it seems a bit crowded/hard to search through(especially in the strategy section where there are many links towards different pages of the same thread:best exemple is Run Forest.... RUN!)
I realize this could make the ToC even longer, but hopefully it will fit on the first page.


About the remaining work to do,i'm thinking to divide thees sections into parts(like i did with angelito's series& opposite allignament series).I don't think i can write something about each thread(it would be nonsense to sumarise a thread like:Best first level spell cos everybody knows it consists in debates on that subject ), but i could make a brief sumary to each section.
Here's how i see this could look like:
-heroes threads:
-Might vs Magic heroes threads
-The clash of heroes series
-hero information threads
-related threads  

creature threads
-best/worse creatures(will include the "best lvl.." 1-7 series)
-fantasy threads(home made pics, fantasy army,your own units,mythology etc)
-related threads

town threads
- a separate section for each castle(there are at least 3 threads for each town)
-best town threads
-related threads

spell threads
-best spell threads
-related

Now, please let me know if you agree with the sistem i have provided for sumarising the remaining sections, and also if my suggestions seem right to you.Feel free to implement new imput on this!
I'll wait for your reply, then i'll start working on this again!

OK, that sounds good Tigris, I could use bb code to enhance the titles for every section so it would be easy to navigate through the ToC.

I will start re-organizing the other threads (like Xarfax's collector's cut.)

EDIT: I just finished reorganizing the ToC as you have suggested and you are right, it does look better
I did not get rid of all the sections you don't like to see there, but I did move the threads you cited into the help section and also moved the collector's cut.

Let me know

-could you move the links to other sites to the first part of ToC, right bellow the Help threads?
-The patches should IMHo belong in the Help Threads section themselves(if you have the time add the link towards the WW section for patches too)
-Could you move This or that to the trivia section?

Well that's about all! Soon the sumarising will be complete.I'm looking forward to see the whole job done and maybe if we have the time, one day we could make such a summary for ToH too, as that forum has a lot of interesting threads, waiting to be uncovered!
But for now i'm kinda tired of writing&checkin threds!
Damn i need a beer!

Just a side-note, here...

*Post moved over from "This or That"...

I was thinking that maybe Sirzapdos should get a QP for creating this interesting and very popular Thread. I don't know if this subject was discussed before, but I support the idea of rewarding his creativity! "This or That" like many good things, is simple, however that should not work against it when being considered for a QP, in my opinion.
