Okay, cool. Understood!

Re: 2023 - Scholars is Back Online

It's always good to see KMA and SoSZ are back! I've been somewhat occupied while they were down. [...] Share more details? I'm curious! Those are some nice portraits, by the way. For what’s it worth, I haven’t been logged out of the site for 5 days now. I cleared all cookies/cache and made sure to ...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

This is also why the Snow/RdC update was public domain, because it was based on the 1925 edition. Its official title was “Romance of Three Kingdoms (based on a 1925 translation, with modernized names, corrections, and notes)” To be clear, by writing "was public domain" you are outlining t...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

Two quick updates: 1) I have sent an email to the website coordinator previously specified on the threekingdoms.com contact page requesting permission to republish their work. They are indicated as the website coordinator. If additional contact points are known to anyone, that could be helpful. 2) I...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

On the note of the copy at the Three Kingdoms Fandom, I think I was originally extending to them some degree of expectation based on how Wikipedia has conducted itself. I get the impression they have created a derivative work of the threekingdoms.com edition based on some of the differences I have s...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

For the biographical texts, I would suggest extracting text from later KOEI RoTK/DW games which have official English translation. I am pretty sure some entries had directly cited information from earlier in-game biographies as well. [...] Wow! That is a heck of a lot of information, and potentiall...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

I think we should clarify a couple of things. [...] Indeed... and interesting. I think they looked into the “wrong” thing by comparing the novel opening paragraph, if the goal was to make a comparison. I decided to pluck from Chapter 16 to see what might be seen, and referenced my copy of the C.H. ...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

Another thing I have been pondering is incorporation of media. We can include old illustrations. Or we could even do some new artwork if some in the community were interested and it fit thematically (e.g. maybe more traditional in presentation as opposed to, say, game-like). I know there are some ar...

Sounds good. That, I can do. And having that text available in this related way opens the doors for a range of fairly neat features, like the one you noted. Cool!
