The "College of knowledge" opened

Post by Dexter on Sun Mar 04, 2012 1:10 pm

Hello folks,

it gives me a great pleasure to introduce a new part of the BVE WorldWide project - it is the Wisdom Temple. It should serve everyone as the main point for searching for information / guides on developing add-ons for the simulator. At this time, there are mainly links to get to all kinds of needed manuals, but I think some special articles might follow soon, as some of our users are very good developers and have lots of knowledge to share.

Enjoy&comment. Smile

Definitely Wisdom Temple from me Derryck, good to have something new and fresh instead of something that sounds a bit familiar etc, good idea!

Same idea, a temple where there Are a variety of developing tools and tutorials to choose from. I wonder if Graham's "Eejits Guide to building objects in b3d" is on there as well?

"Wisdom Temple" sounds gimmicky and is descriptively wrong, insofar as a "Temple" is NOT a repository of knowledge per se but rather a place of worship or idolatry, depending on your point of view.
We have had quite sufficient disruption lately concerning overtly religious material on the one hand and anti-religious sentiment on the other.
As the board is used by mebers of ALL faith as well as members of NO faith let us avoid unneccessary religious references as it serves no useful purpose.
If the emphasis is on education in the arts of building for BVE then why not consider "BVE Academy" or "College of Knowledge"?
But DEFINITELY NOT "Temple".

OK, it was not meant that way, so how about "Wiseman's hut"? Very Happy

Well, certainly this new repository of knowledge looks very good. And full credit to Derryk who has done such a good job to make it so.
As you say, Shaq, it is easy to cause offence when using religious references, even though no offence is intended, some folks get a bit touchy.
So it really would be better to avoid temples etc.
Colleges, Academies and Workshops are more accurate descriptions anyway.
If we introduce temples and worship who knows, we will be venerating Saint Michelle before you know it! (Only joking!) Smile

@Derryck - "Wiseman's Hut" might upset the witch doctor. Political Correctness rules!!

Well, "College of Knowledge" (which NorthernLine seems to like) is slightly tongue in cheek humour and is alliterative so easy to remember.
Knowledge Warehouse might indicate a "large store" of the stuff. Which would be to hope for??

Well, the college does not sound bad with its rhyme, that is true. Very Happy And I am a bit disappointed you don't like my "Wiseman's hut". Very Happy

Oh, Derryck! I don't dislike it. But just think, a College is so much grander than a hut. A College is a burning beacon of light, a hut is a mere candle! And many more wise men emerged from colleges than from huts.
We must not belittle your magnificent palace of knowledge by anything as demeaning as a "hut". Nothing but the best we can provide will do! Very Happy Very Happy

** stick a capital "K" on Knowledge, it's being used as a noun.

I can see this thread has moved on somewhat since I first replied to Derryck's post earlier on this afternoon and I think College of Knowledge is a great title, better than Wisdom Temple as I previously said.

Sorry to disappoint you Ben - I know you're looking for a driver to test one of your latest creations, but don't choose me for goodness sake - I'd crash the thing. The photo is of me sat behind the controls of a Class 91 at Edinburgh (Waverley) and was taken by my good friend Kenny Lang who is a driver for East Coast(GNER at the time) and works the Edinburgh-Newcastle route. I was a bit miffed when he wouldn't let me drive it........! Good to see you back on board.

You may go on quarreling about the title. As long as this service remains, I'm satisfied.
