    Womby and Vyrin are now accepting entries for the upcoming first issue of the Yellow Pages at their bookstores in Central Brittany and Aerie (or you can simply PM Womby with your entry).

    The Yellow Pages is a business directory aimed at helping people find your business.

    There is no charge for including your business in the Yellow Pages, and copies of the Yellow Pages will be made available to everyone at the two bookstores for the cost of production - currently only 2g each, to cover the use of a blank book.

    Submissions can be sent directly to Womby by PM, or placed in the appropriate container in either of the bookstores. They should include the following information:

    Name: Name of establishment
    Location: Name of City/Town/Village/POT, and location therein
    Property Owner: This will enable people to set a compass bearing at the Town Crier
    Sells: One line description of items sold

    Example:

    Name: Vyrin and Womby's Bookstore.
    Location: Aerie. Turn right when you reach the well. First building on your right.
    Property Owner: Vyrin
    Sells: Books (including rare limited editions); copies of the Yellow Pages.

    EDIT: Some people are selling copies of the Yellow Pages at inflated prices. Please be aware that I am currently not charging more than 2g for them.

    Womby, you have an idea yet how often you'll be updating the Yellow Pages? Monthly, like before?

    I was planning on updating the Yellow Pages weekly, probably just before the weekend.

    Can information be listed in this thread?

    Will there be a delivery service available? Maybe @WrathPhoenix would be interested in this for his mail service?

    Sure, why not? As long as they adhere to Portalarium's rules.

    I won't be offering one, but I won't rule it out if someone else wants to step up.

    You might want to set a specific char limit for the lines.

    Question:
    Would you like us to copy and distribute yellow pages or do you want that exclusive for yourselves?

    Suggestion:
    Put the Novian year in the title so that we can see at glance how old it is. And for history keepers.

    Regarding character limit, if the character count grows too large the Yellow Pages will split into multiple, per-region volumes. We reserve the right to reject ridiculously long entries.

    I do not have time to copy and distribute the Yellow Pages, but if others wish to do so then I have no objection - provided they do not alter the text. They are free to charge more to cover the cost of distribution - the Yellow Pages will always* be available at source for 2g.

    Note that using the magical printer does not currently alter the tool tip (I'm hoping that will change, but it is what it is). If the tool tip does not say "Womby" or "Vyrin" then assume that the copy has been altered.

    It is already planned to include the full Novian date in the title. Example: Yellow Pages 494 PC June 11. That should result in a match between alphabetical and chronological sorting.

    *CAVEAT: If the price of blank books rises in the future, then we reserve the right to increase the price of the Yellow Pages to recover that cost.

    For (your and my) convenience you may if you prefer PM your Yellow Pages entry to me using this format:

    Code:
    [b]Name:[\b] Name of establishment
    [b]Location:[\b] Name of City/Town/Village/POT, and location therein
    [b]Property Owner:[\b] This will enable people to set a compass bearing at the Town Crier
    [b]Sells:[\b] One line description of items sold
    
    I can then copy and paste it in directly.

    PM sent, but I could not copy the code directly - the forum seems to change it and erase the commands. :(

    Ah yes. That's OK, I can edit it myself. The secret is to use prefix CODE (enclosed in square brackets) and suffix /CODE (also enclosed in square brackets) .

    I'll probably put out the first issue a week from this coming Friday (i.e. expect the first issue around Friday 26th August). That will give people plenty of time to get their entries in.
