For your consideration: Dark Sun

I came across "this absolutely fantastic _Dark Sun_ wiki":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/dark-sun-a-trova which I think deserves Campaign of the Month honors. This wiki represents an outstanding example of organization, presentation, and use of the site tools and includes some excellent original artwork.

This wiki is also one of the growing number of campaign in a language other than English on Obsidian Portal; I think it encourages international users to see their work highlighted.

    It is very nice.... but selfishly still hoping mine gets it soon....
    However, currently very upset that Mike/Black Vulmea's site is getting the shaft on recognition... 22 days into his award winning month, and still not on the main site!!!

    Recommendation: To help with the mostly English speaking folk on the portal, would include a way to quickly translate to English on each major portion- Start page, wiki, adventure logs, etc.

    Minor modifications of the "main":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/dark-sun-a-trova and "wiki":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dark-sun-a-trova/wikis/main-page pages.

    It's a good idea to include a link a translator, do anybody could recommend me a good one ?

    Thanks, I include a translate icon on the "main page":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dark-sun-a-trova/wikis/home-page (with google translator), the translation isn't perfect, but it could be a good tool.

    What do you think of my work ? Is the icon enough obvious ?

    With the inspiration given to me by Gilheru's toolbar (you know ? "Solstice":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/solstice !), I made the mine (with a variant for my "dark sun bestiary":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dark-sun-a-trova/wikis/bestiaire) !

    Any comments ?

    Pils has done some very good work with his site and I would wholeheartedly support his nomination for COTM. A recent Navigation Bar even has a "TRANSLATION" device, which now opens up his text to a whole new audience. Good work, Pils!!!

    Thanks !

    I named the icon "translate". Would it be more accurate to name it "translator" or "translation" ? (or another wording ?)

    At last, 4 months after the game, I made the summary of the "Ruins of Kalidnay - second part":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dark-sun-a-trova/adventure-log. Enjoy and don't forget the TRANSLATE icon.

    Even I'm an amateur, I made every illustrations for my campaign's characters . The main reason is it's a pleasure for me to imagine and sketch NPCs, and I think it helps me to create the right "mood" for my adventures.

    You can go to take a look on my new "character's page":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dark-sun-a-trova/wikis/personnages, I also and made a custom look for every characters (with a new symbol system for each of them).

    And don't forget to check the "translate icon" !

    And don't forget to forgive my low capacity in english...

    Thanks for pointing this campaign out, Black Vulmea. It really is a terrific wiki and I think there's something kind of exhilarating about seeing familiar material filtered through a different culture's point of view. It makes it feel fresh all over again.
