I think this page is getting long. Any objection to the creation of a ClubFloyd/Games played in 2007 to 2010 archive page when 2010 is over? -- David Welbourn 04:03, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Good idea! --Eriorg 05:08, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Correct dates

I added Only After Dark and I changed the dates for a few games of this page and the 2010 ClubFloyd page. I supposed the correct dates were at the official site; is it true? --Eriorg 17:27, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Yes, I believe the official page dates are more likely to be correct. Late in the Death Off the Cuff transcript -- which also includes a playthrough of The Coast House (which I apparently napped through and no one told me about) -- has players wishing each other a Happy New Year, so that's definitely from January 1st. Also, the number in the transcript file names are of the format YYYYMMNN where YYYY and MM are the year and month, but NN is just a sequential number starting from 01. So we can at least be sure of the order from those, if not the exact dates, but it's another way we can check. -- David Welbourn 04:47, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Thanks. I added The Coast House. --Eriorg 17:10, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Suggestions object text

What is the current suggestions object text? It seems that the version on this page is an old one ("ClubFloyd meets here each Sunday at 2pm Eastern." instead of Saturday; "absolutely must be programmed in Hugo, AGT, Inform, or TADS (2 or 3)", but apparently there are other platforms now)... --Eriorg 05:16, 10 June 2011 (PDT)

Here's the current version of the text, but it's already slightly old since we can now also play ChoiceScript games, and JACL games too, which I know we did once. -- David Welbourn 05:54, 10 June 2011 (PDT) :

*** Welcome to ClubFloyd! ***

ClubFloyd meets here each Saturday at 2pm Eastern.  If you'd like to know what we'll be playing
each week, it's generally posted to the #ClubFloyd bb here on ifMUD, as well as to the RSS feed
at http://www.allthingsjacq.com/cf-feed.xml (if you're on LiveJournal, you could also put lj user
ClubFloyd on your flist).

To see how things work, you can read through past transcripts at

ClubFloyd games absolutely must be programmed in ADRIFT, AGT, Hugo, Inform, or TADS (2 or 3)
because those are the only games that run on our bot, Floyd.  PLEASE ALSO NOTE: As of March 2011
there is no longer a two hour game time constraint, as we have decided to try playing some longer
games over multiple ClubFloyd sessions.
