Bonobo: Hey all, this is Tom in Germany, I’m a Deshi n00b … so there are a lot of questions that arise when I stumble over pages which I’d like to edit.
BUT, on one hand I’m a little self-conscious as to how far I can go, what new things I may add, I’d hate to spoil anything for anybody; on the other hand I have an unhealthy tendency to perfkctionism; both together sometimes make me do nothing at all. Yet I’d like to do something here on SL, so … I’d like some feedback, please, from you experienced Deshis or Librarians … do you think this is too much “bling bling”? I rarely see images here, much less animations. Or would you welcome such additions?
Thanks in advance,
(aka “Bonobo” here and on most forums, aka “trohde” on Go servers)
 Although I am seriously tempted to make this a video with a nice soundtrack ( Joe Cocker – “The Letter”), I promise not to do so. Well, not here.
OscarBear?: My own opinion is that an animation is not in keeping with the look and feel, or style, or Senseis Library.
It wouldn’t be the only animation here (cf. PointPopularityByMoveNumber), and I could, of course, edit it re: colours/size/etc. so as to make it better fit in here (e.g. use the colour scheme of SL diagrams).
fractic: So just because Sensei's hasn't used much animations so far it would be bad to add one? That's a really silly argument. I'd say add the animation. I think it would help beginners visualize the concept.
Thanks also to you for your feedback :-)
I’ll work on it:
1) to make it fit in better in SL’s colour scheme/sizes etc., and …
2) because I had a few new ideas, for example to make it a little bit wider so as to show that “a ladder is six lines wide” (i.e. a stone within these six lines in the path of the ladder may/will influence/decide the ladder’s outcome).
Won't happen too soon since I’m quite busy currently but I appreciate that you took the time ti fuel my motivation, thank you :-)
