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.
If your favorite weave is not listed please let me know and I'll consider adding it to the list.

Weave Code List

byz = Byzantine
ds = Dragonscale
eur = European weaves in general
eX.Y = European X in Y (eg e4.1 = European 4 in 1)

and I'll consider adding it to the list.

Material Code List

anon - please does this look right to you, seems more confusing than V1.0 but I guess that's cause there's more in it?

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).

A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

This is how i read your code

V2.0 = Version 2.0
T7.2 = Between 2,000,000 and 2,999,999 Total Rings
R5.4 = Between 40,000 and 49,999 Rings in largest project
Epf = Earning part-time would like to be full-time (should be Ep.t)
Fe4.1 = Favorite weave Euro 4 in 1
MAg/Cu = Favorite material Gold or Copper (should only list one material)
Wm$ = Winds using a hand mandrel and buys rings/couls
Cpw$ = Cuts using a powered system (not jump-ringer) jewlers saw and buys cut rings
G0.5-3.0 = has used wire between 0.5mm and 3mm in diameter
I2.0-12.0 = has used an inner diameter ranging from 2mm to 12mm
N30.29 = has made 30 weaves from the weave list and mastered 29 of those.
Pjsa = Prefers jewelry, sculpture and armor
Dacdejst = has made armor, clothing, decorative works, equipment, jewelry, sculpture, trimmings and accessories
Xa16g223p2t14w22 = Has contributed 16 articles, 223 gallery pictures, 14 tutorials, 22 weaves and twice to publications
S88 = started mailling in 1988
Hipu = Has helped by contributing ideas, posting in the maille code thread and submitted atleast one complete section of the maille code (should be Hu - it should list the highest level of contribution, unfortunately i havent worded it well, so now i know i should re-word it)

hopefully that is what you wanted the code to say.

Sorry, yes Ag is silver, i even know Ag is silver, so i don't know why i wrote gold. One little tweak, Epf should be Ep.f but apart from that it looks ok to me. Smile

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...

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 Very Happy
