Hi, I know that a 'P' entry shouldn't be dibbed until Sat., but I'm going to be away from any kind of computer over the Labor Day weekend, and so I hope its alright for me to dib this right now.  I have my entry for Pricludious 95 percent done and will be back in front of a computer either Sunday or Monday to post it.  I hope that this is ok to y'all.  I'd really appreciate the chance to do this entry. Thanks. --[[User:Dodaka II|Dodaka II]] 13:31, 2 Sep 2005 (EDT)

But there was one change which I believe was simply an overlooked mistake.

:I will allow this, if only because there are ''so many'' P entries that the chance that the regular dibbing players will pick Pricludious is relatively low, and there are plenty of other P choices available. This is a one time acceptance; further attempts will be met with a Mighty Stomp. --[[User:MorbusIff|Morbus Iff]] 13:52, 2 Sep 2005 (EDT)

If there is no accepted convention regarding time in this game, then I would suggest changing the line of text from 11 PM (23) to "shortly before midnight", or "in the dead of night", or "betwixt the hours when Pinky and Perky are at their blackest", or something that gives the idea that it was really late when Pricludious was attacked. --[[User:Dodaka II|Dodaka II]] 14:51, 24 Sep 2005 (EDT)

:You phantomed M.Collegium yourself a few entries back - thus, it cannot be used as your own official citation and thus, why it was changed. As for the time, yeah, I changed that irrationally, but only because I felt AM and PM were too "human" - they're both abbreviated terms in Latin, and naturally, Latin doesn't exist in Ghyll (not yet or not officially, anyways). There are however, definitively, 24 hours in the Ghyllian day. The age 23 of Mrs. Bagouville is definitely a mistake, and I'll be correcting the timeline shortly (I envisioned her the same way you do, and I'm not entirely sure where my mind was during timeline editing). --[[User:MorbusIff|Morbus Iff]] 16:57, 24 Sep 2005 (EDT)

I noticed a few content changes to the Pricludious entry. A few of them I found a bit puzzling, like changing the existing-phantom citation from M.Collegium to the Rump Family. But I assume there was a reason for that.

But there was one change which I believe was simply an overlooked mistake. In "The End" section, when the report of the constabulary is referenced, it was originally stated that Mrs.Bagouville came rushing into the police station shortly after 11 PM. This has now been changed to the number 23. I don't know what the unit of time measurement is on Ghyll, but unfortunately this number 23 seems to have been mistaken as the "age" of Mrs.Bagouville, as per her (mistakenly typed in as a he) entry in the Who'sWho. Mrs.Bagouville, in case anyone is interested, is not 23 but is actually an elderlyish woman not unlike the lady who takes care of Sherlock Holmes' apartment on Baker Street.

If there is no accepted convention regarding time in this game, then I would suggest changing the line of text from 11 PM (23) to "shortly before midnight", or "in the dead of night", or "betwixt the hours when Pinky and Perky are at their blackest", or something that gives the idea that it was really late when Pricludious was attacked. --Dodaka II 14:51, 24 Sep 2005 (EDT)
