    There is a lot you can do on appearance as well without CSS. When my campaign won it was pre-css, and the site now looks very similar to the site back then. Basileus is also correct on the other suggestion -we all love adventure logs, especially if the players are involved.

    Just trying to help out.

    OK, not to sound like I'm tooting my own Horn, but honestly, almost all of what is on my Shadows Site, GrayGriffin, is done without CSS. It's all textile code and Images
    Wolfhound's old tutorials were a great help in starting. Believe they still on his Dallas Site

    Powerful images, punchy descriptions and added details do a lot to win over any newcomers to your site, GrayGriffin!

    FYI, I have the tech team looking into how badges and the campaign page are updated.
    If it's manually done, we'll do it manually this time which may take about a week to figure out and get done, though longer term I'd like to have more automation in place, so we can reduce the time.

    Thanks for your patience, this is the first time the team is working on it, so there is some 'figuring out' going on at the moment.

    Congrats Abersade!

    I figured out how to update COTM entries, so Rise of the Durnskald appears on the "campaigns page":https://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns and the "cotm/featured campaigns page":https://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/featured

    Also, some witchcraft in adding "Player in a featured campaign" badges for the players in Abersade's award-winning campaign:

    https://obsidianportal.com/profile/saintdiane
    https://obsidianportal.com/profile/Obison
    https://obsidianportal.com/profile/Wizneber
    https://obsidianportal.com/profile/Zaergo
    https://obsidianportal.com/profile/grodech
    https://obsidianportal.com/profile/secile_heitmeyer

    Let me know if anyone has been left out.

    This is done manually, so a bit of time needed to gather the fillet of a fenny snake, eye of newt and toe of frog, etc.

    @kvp - The magic of an undocumented site is that you learn new stuff every day!

    Not all of it pleasant though...

    Thanks for that Andrew, the badges look great!

    EDIT: In campaign specific news I've changed up the main wiki page a bit to use the format that I was testing. My players seemed to like it, if any of you take a gander let me know what you think. I still feel like I can do more with it, it's a work in progress. You can view the Black Library "here":https://rise-of-the-durnskald.obsidianportal.com/wikis/main-page.

    @andreww38, just an fyi, I know there was an automation to the player in featured, as people that joined after Rebuilt won found that they had gained the badge.

    Just trying to help out.

    Yes. This is correct KVP. Which was kind of a let down, since I worked really hard in Regnum with AZ-Rune submitting logs (epic poetry), artwork and extra ideas the GM could use, hoping to help our campaign earn CotM so that I could join all my friends in having that badge. Then, after only one guest appearance in Rebuilt I got it anyway...little did I know the very next month Regnum earned CotM! It took some of the pizzazz for me already having it.

    Exactly how many COTM Player badges have you won at this point, MGH?

    You should hire out your services to GMs!

    @ basileus: lol. I "earned" 2 (Regnum and Outremer), but would have received 3 being part of Rebuilt. I appreciate the shout out.
