Okay, I posted in the Weave Discussion Forum about this... And I'm making the post here now...

In the next little while, I will be 'upgrading' the Weave DB...
I will be altering how everything is stored, and also changing the format of the descriptions.

Currently, descriptions allow HTML Tags... This WILL NOT be the case in the future.

Tutorial Links will be generated automatically via ID# lists, and no longer needed to be filled in be hand.

BBCode will be used in place of HTML in the description when nessecary... I'm predicting:
[b] [i] [u] (Bold, Italic & Underline respectively) as well as:
[url] or [url=] and [/url] for URL's

This will also eventually apply to Gallery listings.
Articles, I think, will stay HTML Based, as it allows you to do some tricky things that BBCode has trouble handling... Tables for example.

Anyway, to the request for assistance.

After I do the conversion... The initially seeded description will still include our old Hard Coded HTML Links to Tutorials... As well as likely some HTML in an entry here or there...

I need some volunteers to wade through these weave entries... Removing HTML/Tutorial Links, and entering information into a few of the new top-secret fields...

I will write a script to allow this to occur relatively easily, as well as mark weave entries as 'DONE' once they have been checked and edited, so people don't attempt to work on the same entry twice...

Anyone? Coif LoL

For you DL, you bet...I don't care what they say about you, you're class Cool

I may not be able to put any real time into it until after Tuesday, this next week, but if enough of us jump on it, it shouldn't be too awful painful.
