Woops, I see I orphaned the "Help Contribute" pages =(
Emailing the information to me (leaf@...) using the format I
mention below would be great. I can re-enable an online submit form too,
but until then - direct email is preferred.
What should the pages include?
Map Location, Map Description, Suggested Levels, Monsters Encountered,
Items Obtained (aka treasure), Other Information
This is summarized at:
If you are updating an existing summary, just include the page URL or Map
title, along with the new text and information.

Nope, they are all manually generated by people playing and exploring the
maps, writing down what they find and encounter, etc.

I prefer unformatted information as either a .txt attachment or the
information can be within the message body.
The reson for unformatted information is because for the past several
months I've been overhauling the website to CSS2 format. The exact layout
for the map summaries isn't finalized, yet. Very soon though.
At this time, the pages are not in CVS.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
