    7-Day GM Organization Challenge

    This will be a bit confusing, but bear with me. Buckets are Tags. Tags are the symbols you use to make something into a link or Page. ~ ! @ # $ etc. For example, @"Johnn Four" is a Page that has info about that NPC. To link to that Page you just "tag it" as you type. You type Johnn Four, then...

    7-Day GM Organization Challenge

    I put all this type of stuff into my *Plots Pages. I'll give each plot thread its own *Tag. For example, I give each PC a private plot thread, then a thread for the villain, and then a thread for the main story line if that's different from the villain. Then I pile and file details relevant to...

    7-Day GM Organization Challenge

    Hi @Hiruma Chico! I used to put them in ^Factions. I've had to use that tag symbol for another purpose now though, so I put groups and factions into #World Pages, and put indivuals into @NPC Pages. In this use case, the #World Page is like a Wikipedia entry about the group. I describe its...

    7-Day GM Organization Challenge

    I have a folder called Systems. Inside that is D&D. Inside that is a folder per edition. And then I used to have sub-folders for Adventures, Worlds, Encounters, Monsters & NPCs, Treasure, etc. But I don't do that any more. It's one level too deep for me, but it might serve others perfectly...

    @Gossamer#3592 @quozl @ChimpMasaki @JochenL I have updated email links that will allow video scrubbing. Alas, this will not work for any emails already received, but it will work for upcoming ones. And if you restart the challenge by re-entering your email in the form from the invitation...

    7-Day GM Organization Challenge

    Hey @GM Rob! Yes! This was a key reason we built Campaign Logger. You remember some bit of something - a name or where it's located or that it was noted two sessions ago or some other detail - and that's the only memory hook you have. I found Evernote search terrible for this type of thing...

    @JochenL Not as good as an article, but you can try the transcript:

    Campaign nav works great

    Cool beans. I'm finding the hover zone too small / pixel bitchy. Not sure the best approach for that.

    VTTs

    I did not know that about Astral! I'm sorry to hear that. I see today Arkenforge has a Black Friday sale. I could never wrap my head around that one, but it looks promising. Roll20 has merged with DTRPG. At some point, I'd expect DTRPG/DM's Guild + Roll20 + D&D Beyond + One D&D to be a single...

    Campaign nav works great

    Hey @JochenL the updated nav is fantastic! Would it be possible to make the hover function over the entire link as opposed to just the down arrow?

    @sarahbholm Hi! I checked and the Giant Steaming Machine says you are registered and are set to receive all the emails. Give it a few more hours, and check spam and filtered folders just in case. If no luck, I'll restart it for you. Cheers.

    Sorting Log Entries

    @JochenL Thank you for adding the Sort by Log Entry Title feature. It works great and I've been using it - a valuable new feature for us! I now will go back and add Titles to Entries. How does this "Renumber All Log Entries" function work when I have Search/Filter engaged? Do all Log...

    Campaign Logger Resources

    Yes. This. Though it won't be everything. Just what I'm doing these days. Some old methods have been replaced by better ones. I would love to see that. I never proscribe "the one" way to do things as everyone is different, and we change over time. I think it would be cool to distro a couple...

    Hi @Gary F! Please keep up with the requests. It's always great to hear from you - and I appreciate the pokes to deliver. I'll be releasing new segments of the Campaign Design Diary this week, so it's the perfect time to tune into that.

    Bug: Duplicate a Post

    Thanks for the bug report! Jochen will check this out and get back to you as I'm useless debugging this type of thing, alas. :)

    7-Day GM Organization Challenge

    In my experience, the best answer is in the first place you'd look. So file it there. Then pay attention when you go to access it next time. If you search more than one place until you find the information, then move the information to the actual first place your started that search with. For...
