 Version 2.0 of Maille Code Posted on Fri Jul 03, 2009 7:22 am Link to Post: Version 2.0 of Maille Code (3/7/09) My maille code is Maille Code V2.0 T5.2 R4.5 Eo.p Fj12.2 MFe.s Wg\$i Cp\$es G0.5-1.5 I1.2-10.8 N16.16 Pj Dcejt Xa6g14 S07 Hc This is how it works CODE TYPE Maille Code [Code type]=Maille Code Tells people which form of the code is being used (I'm planing to do other variations such as a Wire code and a Personal code to include other info etc) V - VERSION Maille Code V2.0 V[Number]=V2.0 Shows which version of the code was used. In this case 2.0, 2 for the major revision number and 0 for the minor revision number. T - TOTAL RING COUNT Maille Code V2.0 T5.2 T[Number.Number]=T5.2 (20,000 to 29,999 rings) Total ring Count gives a rough estimate as to the total number of rings you have woven. The first number used is the number of digits in your ring count, eg 876 is made up of three digits, so the first number used is 3. The second number used is the first digit eg the first digit of 876 is 8 so the second number is 8 so for 876 you would put T3.8 R - RING COUNT OF LARGEST PROJECT Maille Code V2.0 T5.2 R4.5 R[Number.Number]=R4.5 (5,000 to 5,999 rings) Ring Count gives a rough estimate as to the number of rings you have woven in your largest project. The first number used is the number of digits in your ring count, eg 876 is made up of three digits, so the first number used is 3. The second number used is the first digit eg the first digit of 876 is 8 so the second number is 8 so for 876 you would put R3.8 E - EARNING STATUS Maille Code V2.0 T5.2 R4.5 Eo.p E[Actual Earning Code].[Intended Earning Code]=Eo.p (occasional with hopes to become part-time) Earning code give an idea of the commercial role maille plays in the maker's life Earning Code List f = full-time, maille making is run as a full time business p = part-time, maille making is run as a part time business o = occasional, there is the occasional sale n = non commercial, maille is not sold for profit F - FAVORITE WEAVE Maille Code V2.0 T5.2 R4.5 Eo.p Fj12.2 F[Weave Code]=Fj12.2 (Japanese 12 in 2) Favorite weave indicates your preferred weave, using a Weave Code.

 Posted on Wed Jul 08, 2009 4:24 pm Link to Post: Doesn't look too bad to me - and seems to be inside the definition of the code. And in the moment, the maille code v2.0 article is approved, the link to the article will be .../articledisplay.cgi?key=55086, as I already did embed into mine. (Phong requested addition of revision notes before approval, so I let my fingers off - and articles approval/denial isn't my obligation, anyhow). -ZiLi- Maille Code V2.0 T7.1 R5.6 Ep Fper MAl Ws\$ Cpbsw\$ G0.3-6.4 I1.0-30.0 N28.25 Ps Dacdejst Xagtw S08 Hip Human societies are like chain mail.

Well, there is some information in your code, that looks a bit 'funny'.

It is a bit uncommon for a mailler, being active since 2006, and having woven a total of only 500 to 600 rings, and a largest project consisting of 100 to 200 rings - and then already having had occasional sales and having the wish to go partly commercial. Another untrustworthy thing is your thinnest gauge being 0.8mm, and the smallest rings having an ID of just 1.2mm - that sounds a bit implausible, so one of the numbers must be wrong. And having made more than a dozen weaves looks implausible, if it is compared with your ring count, especially seen in the light of your preference of making maille clothing, where normally higher ring counts are usual.

So I think, that most of your questionable data resolve themselves, if your 'T' and 'R' entries are corrected - and 'G' and 'I' set to plausible values.

BTW: You should set the link to the Maille Code article only for the word 'Maille Code', the V2 already being normal text, replaced by 'V2.0', and NOT followed by a colon. See my or Anon's code.

Oh, I nearly forgot: Welcome to the Maille Code users...

 Posted on Tue Aug 25, 2009 11:11 pm Link to Post: yeah, that would be my complete lack of the metric system I chose clothing because bellydance gear didnt have an option and screwed all the numbers big time so how do I translate gauge into metric? changed the T and R (Recounted the belt I made) still clueless with the metric system also changed clothing to simply jewelry thanks The Tooth Fairy teaches kids to sell body parts for money.
