I really don't care except that the ones left on Arrakeen are old; some of the chapters are mixed up, some were done by other people and it wasn't complete.
I was thinking of asking that they take down the old ones from Arrakeen and giving them permission to use the complete ones at Jacurutu, but on the condition that they provide a link to the reading group here. Not out of spite or anything, but because I don't want my name associated with the old, incomplete ones and do want people to use the complete one from here. My goal in doing those reviews was a selfish one. It was to further my understanding of the story and possibly change it based on discussion of my summaries with other members. Some of my views may be too radical for others or maybe completely different. If they can argue their point well, I'll modify the summaries to reflect their input. So it is subject to change without notice.
That's a good solution, Freak. They would be fools to say no.
Apparently they disagree. Auyila says:
You should be able to view all posts, with the exception of the Admin forum and the currently removed Reading Room forum. The first is for Staff discussion only - so although links to staff posts might be visible, you won't be able to see the content. The Reading Room forum won't be reopened for a while, as we'll be rewriting the synopses for the book chapters, one by one. smile.gif
The only other forum that is PW protected, is the nuDune novels forum. If you'd like the access to that (currently empty), please let me know and I'll PM you the information.
Any specific post(s) that wouldn't open for you, that got you especially confused?
I guess they are just going to rewrite it rather than reference the real dune site.
