Hidden Street - the DB takes flight

it feels so nice and privileged to be part of the HS team... only been on the team for a short 2weeks and a few days but there's quite a lot that i've changed/checked... all the adventurer's job names and skills, the 4th job skill books, all the weapons... all the mobs except neo tokyo ones... added in some of the sg extension mobs, added in the portals for the time temple (or rather, timeless temple as its officially called in msea) mini maps... added in thailand mobs... added in china mobs and still adding the drop location for the stuff dropped by the china mobs...

still HAVE NOT checked ninja castle maps as saigo asked me to >< got fed up with that place after i got lost trying to find the merchant guy to take SS with. have no returned there since to check the maps. walked map by map of TT to check the portals, mob names, etc drop names and description though. and then i've happily promised to add in the red/blue dots for the thailand maps... wells... at least there are a lot fewer maps to change compared to TT, even though i only changed the blue and red maps of TT, it was SUCH A CHORE! and path and the lounges... confusing names really! actually, many of the stuff is alot more irritating than it is hard... hmm not really irritating... what's the word? its just that for each step u have to do it tens of times over that it gets frustrating just looking at the number of  drops u have to add the mob dropping the item to for eg.

seriously... i dont know how the 2 of them managed the site in the past... the old site everything was done manually and there were only 2 of them! now there's so many of us... (jon says there are 5 db mods working on the monster cards alone) yeah i guess with all the new items in game and rapid updates they do need more ppl on the team to help. these few days after the site went 'live' the updates are being pushed out really rapidly. i guess nobody wants visitors coming in to see a half done site - i for one hated it when i saw ppl compiling in the GD section of msea forums abt how "there are no new updates" and thailand/china/neo tokyo aint in yet on the day the site went 'live'. i think that'll will be fixed pretty soon tho, our dear saigo is working on neo tokyo mobs/mas/quests at an amazingly rapid pace, the world tour maps and mobs are completed (more or less...) and all that's missing as far as i can tell are the world tour quests. and of cos the aran quests are still being worked on but at least the aran skills and maps are up... lol, i just realised the rien maps arent completed yet... at least the skills are up and that's the most important thing IMO. i realised the drain skill is diff for msea tho, we get a drain with higher drain %... not a problem to me :D (oh HS sea has it updated already)

to me... i think the quests are the most irritating thing to work on, its not written nicely what's a sub quest of wat in game, u gotta figure them out when writing everything out. anyway i'm not working on that now so that's fine :D

i really wanna start working on my SP allocation guides after my exams on tuesday...

wanted to submit my training grounds guide to the HS site but after some consideration... i guess not... they dont have things separate for msea and gms, and msea training sites are much different from gms, that and the naming differences... i guess its not pratical to submit my guide and future sp allocation guides... well i do wish to submit those sp allocation guides though - i think that those ppl in the HS forums are so... not informed when it comes to that... just feel that i can come up with better guides than what they already have, but once again, gms and msea are quite different, esp when it comes to koc chars... so there.
