If anyone would to be added to the network please PM LoriR. I am filling in as a lobby owner to connect new members. I ask that you have a set of coffin teleporters in your possession, then PM me so we can set up a time to meet in VMK.

Some sad news - anyone who had a teleporter in MissBelle's lobby is no longer connected. It seems MissBelle was a victim of the 6 month inactive character deletion. :(
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A bunch of us have put together a teleporter network to link our personal rooms together, and to provide a Dis Common Room to hang out in, and links to DIS event / special rooms. All are welcome to join!

How to add a teleportation portal from your room to the Dis Teleporter Network

Teleporters are now distributed via a Quest Machine, so you don't need to try to hunt me down to trade one to you! Here's how to do it:

1) Find ANYBODY who is correctly linked in to the teleporter network
2) Use the teleporters to find your way to the Central Teleporter Lobby (use their Coffin or Door teleporter first, then use the Blue teacup teleporter)
3) Do the Quest (no games, just a simple tour), and upon completion, you will receive a door teleporter. The other teleporter has already been placed in a Teleporter Lobby.
4) Place the quest prize Door Teleporter you receive in any room of yours

That's it, you are now connected to the Network!

If your door teleporter doesn't work, try to do the quest again; I might have put in one unlinked door into the Quest machine by accident.

Because of VMK values, I highly recommend that you do NOT refer to the network as the "DIS Teleporter Network" while in-game. Just call it the teleporter network. Do NOT try to explain to people in-game to come read this post.


How to get to the Dis Special Rooms
- use the Coffin or Monsters Inc. Door teleporter in your room to transport to one of the Dis Teleporter Lobbies (there are currently five)
- then use the Blue Teacup teleporter to get to the Central Lobby (the hub)
- then use the Narnia Wardrobe teleporter to reach the Dis Special Rooms Lobby

Special Rooms currently include:
- DIS Club Room (way back from Beta!)
- DIS River Network
- DIS Holiday Rooms
- Cape Expeditions
- the Zeta Girls river ride


Previously, DIS teleporter lobby owners included: JeanJoe aka Bezoar, Pumpkinfish aka MissBelle, WebmasterAlex aka disalex, Astryd (as herself)


===== DON'T READ FURTHER UNLESS YOU ARE BORED =====


OK, now for the painful details of how it all works, from my original thoughts:
Shared room / teleportation room network

Goal: as much as possible, to share a common room, even when that room's owner is not logged in


Method:

- one lobby room, which has a teleporter linking to a teleporter in the common room

- multiple players who each have 1 teleporter in their own room and 1 teleporter in the lobby room

- what this allows: even when the lobby room owner and/or common room owner are NOT logged in, someone who has a teleporter in their own room can get to the lobby, and then get to the common room

- when we want to change the common room, we can just move the single teleporter in the common room into a new common room; the rest of the network stays intact


Style:

- to cram as many personal room teleporters in the lobby room as possible, people should purchase coffin teleporters because they take up less space, and because then it will be clear that coffins transport to personal rooms and not to common rooms

- the lobby room teleporter into the common room is currently a tea cup, so it will stand out

- if we need more common rooms in the future, we could use the other non-coffin teleporters to link to additional common rooms

- if we need more lobby space for more personal teleporters, we could create more lobby rooms, and then link together the lobby rooms. Perhaps each lobby room could link to a different common room.


Caveats:

- if you provide a teleportation link from your room to the lobby, people will be able to backtrack into your room. If you don't want people to wander around in your room, rope off around the teleporter

- if you rope off the "normal" entrance to the COMMON room (not around the teleportation tea cup), and no one is in the lobby, it will be tedious to let people who don't have a personal lobby teleportation portal into the common room, because when they "go to" you, they will end up behind the ropes

- perhaps the common room should not be roped off, but that means lots of random people will drop in; this could be set depending on the common room owner's preference?

This network is open to everyone! The goal was to help create a community of like-minded people, and just because it's fun to peek in other people's rooms.

How to get linked is under "How to add a teleportation portal from your room to the Dis Teleporter Network" in the 1st post, but basically:

- One coffin goes into your room.

- The other coffin has to be traded to either VMK MissBelle or Bezoar, because we "own" the lobby rooms, so only we can place the other coffin in the room. Keep an eye out for us, or ask other Dis people who are on whether they've seen us lately.

They must only be open if the owner is in them. Hey, that solves two problems at once! w00t!

Not quite true: a room is open if *anyone* is in it, and it doesn't have to be the owner. (Although when VMK just started beta, what you said *was* true; if the owner left, everyone else was booted out.)

Or, once teleporter links are set up, you just need to find a teleporter that links into it, which is the point of the teleporter network.

Thanks for the offer! Teleporter requests are slow but steady; I think we've got a ways to go before we fill 3 rooms with coffin teleporters. Initially, there were 24 in one room, before splitting them up. Now, we've got ~34 between 3 rooms. But I'll remember the offer, 'Snuggie' :)

It's OK, so long as you don't mind a coffin tucked away in your nice green hideaway. I've seen people place the coffin in the mad tea party's lower left corner, where it doesn't stand out too much, and it looks fine.

I woul l ike to join. I have just never been able to find those who I need to find.
Agreed, that's the flaw with the setup -- not only do you need to be on when Bezoar or MissBelle are on, you also need to actually find them (which is hard if we aren't on your friend's list). I don't really have a good solution for this, as I can't plan when I can be on. :(

A little bit of cool news: there is someone at the VMK Fan Site boards who is interested in starting up a teleporter network for their boards. I shared some tips with them, and suggested that someday, we might even link our networks together.

I still hope to grow our very own Dis network more, though. For whatever reason, I think there is more of a "community" here, and would like our network to reflect that :)

So (hint hint) make sure you trade your coffins with me or MissBelle and not to them! ;) (Or at least, link to both board networks!)

They are sold in pairs, so 500 credits will get you the pair of coffins you would need.

Announcement

DisAlex (VMK) = WebmasterAlex (Dis) now owns the Captain Blackheart Dis Lobby and can place coffin teleporters for you!

So, the 3 people who can place coffins are now:
- DisAlex = WebmasterAlex
- MissBelle = Pumpkinfish
- Bezoar = JeanJoe

Hopefully that will make it easier to find someone to help you out!

Off topic: ok I did some of "the math" and I figured that if I do what I planned, I only get 240 credits a day

On topic: since my room is called Tea house lobby, that may sound wierd in a network that already has a lobby. So I been thinking I will make my own network, and then link it up with the DIS network, good idea?

I have this strange feeling that I"m being watched, that someone's following me...

I'm visiting relatives now and may not be able to get on as much for the next few days. There are going to be ~39 friends / family over tomorrow to see the new kids in the family, mine and my sister's, and I think it would not be appreciated if I spent my time upstairs on VMK. (Hmmm, on the other hand, with ~39 people, it's very likely that no one would notice if I were missing, eh?)

Many people who connect into the Dis network have also connected their multiple rooms by teleporter. They are *your* rooms, so name them and connect them any way you please!

However, the connection to the Dis network will be the usual coffin to one of our current 4 lobbies, and not to the Dis Central Lobby.

Hey hey! It is true, the VMK Fan Site Central Port is finished (well mostly) and includes a teleport to your main hub (via the coffin).

We will have mappng soon and I would be more than happy to post the VMKFanSite map here so you can use it as a guide should you wish (I am mapping the VMKFS one anyhow so not a big deal) :)

Great idea JeanJoe had!

Welcome to the Dis boards, SpinMarty! For a moment I thought I had ended up in an alternate board universe ;)

As SpinMarty said, the VMK teleporter networks are becoming a network of networks! TinkerBlue (from VMK fan site) and I thought that rather than just connecting our two hubs, we would leave room for expansion with other major networks.

So, the VMK fan site Master Hub and the Dis boards Central Lobby are now linked to a room called the "Place between the Worlds." If other major teleporter networks show an interest, I would like to add portals into their networks as well.

Intercot has a large and very complex network (modeled more like a neural network and less like a hub and spoke system; check out their incredibly cool mouse-over interconnection map (http://www.allguinness.com/vmk/vmkmap.html)). I'd love to have them connected to.

If anyone knows of any other large teleporter networks (say >20 rooms), could you let them know about this and let me know if they're interested?

Agreed!

Still, with the hub / periphery setup of VMK Fan Site + Dis, it's less necessary than with Intercot's non-hierarchical loop / neural network. I think for us, what might be cool would be screen shots of each of the lobby rooms, and then mouse-over's the teleporters would pop-up the owner names. That would not be doable here (no HTML or Java), but it would be neat.

Incidentally, my suggestion to link networks with Intercot has 1 rather unenthusiastic response thus far. That's ok, I was just trying to be neighborly :)

A big thanks to chimera, mickeysmagic, and all the others who have offered to donate rooms to the Dis teleporter network. We're all set for "lobbies" now -- we have 4 of them, and each can hold probably ~30 coffin teleporters for a total of 120 linked rooms. We're at ~50 linked rooms right now, so there's plenty of room.

Coffin donation? There haven't been too many new requests to place more links, but one problem might be that newer people are having a hard time coming up with the 500 credits to purchase a coffin teleporter. So, if anyone here has credits burning a hole in their pocket, and you notice someone who would like to link in but can't afford it, that might be nice. :) If there's interest, perhaps people who would like a coffin could post in this thread.

Another way to help out would be to donate extra pieces of furniture. If you think a particular extra piece of furniture would look nice in a lobby, feel free to donate.

If we end up using additional rows of teleporters, it would be especially nice to have LOTS of crates. I spent 1,350 credits on 27 crates the other day :guilty: to try out elevating the teleporters against the back row in case we needed to put a second row in front of them.

Thanks to all again for your offers, and to everyone who is participating!

JeanJoe

By the way, Yeti lobby (the 2nd tea cup from Central) was getting full and the new Blackheart lobby was lonely (the 4th tea cup from Central), so we did a transfer to even things out -- sorry if you got confused with the rearranging.

Shortly, Astryd will be taking over Yeti lobby (once I transfer the current room contents to her), so

If you'd like a teleporter placed, the lobby owners are: (from left to right, by tea cup from Dis Central Lobby)

Maleficent Lobby: JeanJoe=Bezoar
Yeti Lobby: Astryd=Astryd
Shrunken Ned Lobby: pumpkinfish=MissBelle
Blackheart Lobby: WebmasterAlex=disalex

Thanks to AdioSkater for adding me to his room!! I am now Dis connected!! :cool1:

My rooms are Dis Beach and Dis Evil Fortress (teacup connected to Fortress Lobby)

Edited to clarify from the original sleep-fogged post:
I'm confused. Are you linked through AdioSkater's room, which is linked to a lobby? That's a chain of teleporters that I was hoping to avoid, as it makes it hard to keep track of rooms.

Of course if that's your preference, that's fine.

But then, your room probably won't get mapped out.

Re-edited to add:
OK figured it out. Off of Dis Blackheart lobby is a link to AdioSkater's room, and off of his room there's a tea cup that goes to your room. That kind of defeats the attempt to centralize things to minimize the number of jumps you need to make. It also makes mapping difficult (I don't intend to map any links off of personal rooms in the future).

If you like the set-up as is, that's fine :) But if you want fewer "jumps" to get to the central hub, go ahead and get a coffin (preferably not a tea cup) teleporter to Bezoar / Astryd / MissBelle / or disalex.

Thanks!

I've updated the Dis Teleporter Network room list. You can see the list on the first page of this thread in this post (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=8980002&postcount=6)

We're up to 55 total rooms off of the 4 lobbies. Yay!

If anyone is interested in having a link to their room added, please contact:
- JeanJoe (VMK Bezoar)
- Astryd (VMK Astryd)
- pumpkinfish (VMK MissBelle)
- WebmasterAlex (VMK disalex)

I'd like to keep the rooms kind of equal in size, so the next few coffins should probably go to Yeti lobby (Astryd). But feel free to trade the coffin to any of us, and we'll get it into a lobby.

We are all usually on around 9-10pm EST and hanging out in the Central Plaza or a Dis room. If you go to rooms and search Dis a bunch of rooms usually come up. Someone in there is probably one of our friends and can point you in the direction of where we are :)


Hope this helps!

So sorry, what was your VMK name?

When I'm just walking around, I'll collect a bunch of friend requests from people (sometimes Guests, sometimes not) who I haven't even talked to. So, if I don't remember ever even talking to them, I usually just cancel the friend request. So I'm very sorry!

Maybe we should come up with a secret code phrase to alert us. Something like: "Hey you! Take my coffin!" ;)

Addicted! I'm addicted to the DIS and VMK! Somebody help me. I know my DH doesn't understand. He thought my WDW addiction was bad now he knows I'm a goner. If he starts looking at Rest homes I'm in deep trouble.

That's right. Neonatology fellowship, but I'm in the more research heavy years now -- in a molecular biology lab during most days, with scattered clinical responsibilities too. So, during the day I have lots of short steps with waits whose time *should* be spent reading / documenting / thinking / working, but is instead spent hanging around VMK.

That'll have to decrease though. Any day now. Yeah, that's right, any day now.

What, miss me? Doubt it.

Speaking of which, disalex has some impressive powers... Yesterday evening, he came over on VMK to fight me, and did his dance moves in front of me. I pretty promptly loss connection. I tried to reconnect, but it took so long and I was so tired that I gave up.

I have two theories:

1) disalex is supremely powerful, and was able to boot me right out of VMK AND prevent me from returning

2) his dancing is so bad that my computer rebelled and refused to be subjected to such treatment

You all can decide.

Need to get a lot done today, unless I want to come in to work over the weekend, so I might be kind of scarce.

Coffin teleporter donations for new players

I was wondering whether anyone would be interested in a coffin teleporter "pay it forward" donation setup?

Multiple new players have said that they would like to join the teleporter network, but that they don't have the credits to buy a coffin teleporter (especially after the film and furniture price increases).

Might people who are rolling in credits be willing to consider donating a coffin pair to newbies? Donors would trade both coffins to the new player. The new player would place on in their room, and trade the remaining coffin to Bezoar / Astryd / MissBelle / or disalex for network lobby placement.

It would be great if people who received a donated coffin pair could someday reciprocate by purchasing a pair for the new newbies.

Anyone willing? People willing to donate and people interested in receiving a coffin could post here.

(Perhaps some of the very generous people who have offered furniture and/or rooms for the network might consider?)

==========

Edited to add: just realized that the logistics of this might be easier if Bezoar / Astryd / MissBelle / and disalex were each given a pair of coffins by donors, and then any of us who could manage to hook up with a new player could deal with coffin placement.

Word to the wise: do not keep a bazillion coffins in your inventory, or you will spend endless fun time trying to figure out which is paired with which one afterwards.

Yay! The first round of pay-it-forward donated coffins!

I've received donated teleporters from DoomCookie and TinkerSnow (thanks!) and disalex may have received some too.

Now all I need is somebody to share them with!

If anyone runs into Bezoar on VMK and asks for a link in, I can do it. (Or PM me here, and we can try to arrange a meeting, but it's a little difficult because my work times are unpredictable).

lol I just got the fireworks pin. Been trying & trying for ages & finally I got it.

As for the teleporter network. If I ever find someone at VMK who can place them I'd like to join & I can also donate a couple to someone too if they need them. I've been accumulating my credits rather than buy stuff all the time:banana:

With the time difference it makes it hard to be on when you guys are also on.

For me this week I can't be on until around midnight Eastern time which is 2pm the following day here.

Wednesday (your Tuesday night) I may be able to make it about an hour earlier. Actually now that I think of it. I will be home most of Thursday (your Wednesday evening/night).

I just need to find someone who can do this for me. I have bought one pair of coffins. Will buy another as soon as I can get these ones placed.

Where do you folks usually hang out? I'm usually hanging around the fireworks or Jungle Cruise.

Yes, look for vmk's "Miss Belle" and vmk's "Bezoar" and I now believe their is one more. But those two I know for sure. You will do a trade, and give them the other coffin, then they will put it into one of the Dis telporter rooms. Click on your envelope in the bottom of the screen, and then click the "Friends" tab. If you have already asked one of them to be your friend, and they have accepted, then they will show up on your friends list, if they are on line, they their name will be highlighted, just click the button to go to the room or game area that they are in. Good luck!

That's right -- any of these people can place a teleporter for you:

- Astryd / Astryd
- pumpkinfish / MissBelle
- WebmasterAlex / disalex
- JeanJoe / Bezoar (oh fine, CL_Bezoar, ugh)

And we have a few DONATED COFFIN PAIRS from generous Dis people! (I have a pair, I think other do too.) Sorry you didn't find out before you spent your credits... :(

Thanks JeanJoe! I found Astryd yesterday and gave her my teleporter. I haven't tried it out yet; hopefully, today I will get a chance, so maybe I'll see you around! Wish I knew there were extra coffin teleporters before I bought mine - bummer!! I'm now trying to earn another 200 credits to buy a palm tree for my room :) and then try and get another 200 credits to get more film for my camera... I find it hard work getting credits - I need to get better at the games I guess! LOL!

Well, they're wider than the coffin teleporters, I can say that much. They look like a train engine. I think they're the teleporters that can take you from the Emporium to the Golden Horseshoe Mercantile or whatever the Frontierland shop is called. I can scan the prize card and show you what it looks like, but I don't know if I have reached the post level as to where I can post an actual link. May I email it to you? PM me with your reply.

BuddyGenie -- you should know that these train teleporters are valuable as far as VMK goes. They're hard to get (not too many people have them), so don't trade them for a couple of shirts or something.

These and the Stitch (Tomorrowland) teleporters are the only ones which can not be purchased.

Just saw this post. If you were willing, I would be happy to give you a pair of coffin teleporters, and then I would use the train teleporters as a link into a public DIS room, similar to DoomCookie's DIS Club Room, and the frequently used Tishke Haunted Mansion Room.

Interested? Of course, if you get a good offer for them, by all means, enjoy :)

Well, this may be way too corny for you, but I was going to try to convert the group effort Dis Celebration contest entry into a public Dis lounge. I've renamed the room the Dis Carry-oh-key Lounge, but want to change the seating a bit.

So, if it's OK with you, I would gladly use you teleporters, and in the meantime, buy a pair of coffins for you to use to link your own room into the network. And if you ever wanted them back, just ask. I'll only be using it for the Dis network, and will not trade or sell them.

Aaahhhh!! The bouncing green and pink things are coming to get us! Run away! Run!!!

Thanks for the offer (and to all the others who also offered)!

If possible, it'd be nice to keep the Dis teleporter network nicely compact, with a minimal number of lobbies, so people don't spend a lot of time going from lobby to lobby.

By stacking coffins on crates and using multiple rows (take a look at what's happening with the Maleficent lobby), I think it should be possible to fit close to 35 coffins in a single Maleficent room. With our current 4 lobbies, we should be able to accomodate 140 coffins then. Since we're currently at ~60 or so total, I think we're set for now, but thanks again!

The current central lobby is a Nemo room; I might switch it over to a Skull Rock room if we ever need more room to accomodate more lobbies. (Those tea cup teleporters take up SO much space...)

Then again, if anyone else thinks we need more lobbies now, I'd be happy to decide otherwise :)

Hey. I'd like to join the network too. :) Probably just in whichever lobby is the least crowded or the Maleficent Lobby. It looks like the hub has increased in size since the pictures were posted on the first page, so could someone tell me which person would be best to search out on VMK to give one half of my teleporters? ^^

Very kind of you to be so flexible as to where your link will go. As you've noticed, it's so hard to find any of us if we're not already on your friend's list that just find ANY of us (disalex, MissBelle, Astryd, or CL_Bezoar) and we'll cram it in there someplace. :)

Good luck, see you on VMK

I finally got a telelporter last night. I looked for DIS members all night, but I only found Tinkerblue and that was before I got the teleporter. I think I now have 2 dis members in my friend list. I feel a bit lonely out there in VMK. I'd love to meet you all out there. I did spend most of my time looking in Central Plaza. Any more hints on when and where to find fellow DISers?

Update: I am now on the teleporter network! Thanks so much to Miss Belle and all the other DIS members I met last night in Mickeysfriend's room. I felt very welcome, and am thrilled to be connected. I hope to see you all again soon both here and on VMK. Thanks again!!! :cheer2:

I got my teleporter last night and gave it to Astryd who placed it for me (thank you, Astryd!). I tested it last night to make sure it worked, and I teleported from my room to Astryd's lobby with no problem. But this morning I can't get out of my room in the teleporter. I go in when I double-click it, it makes the noise like I'm going to transport, then I just walk back out again. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

ETA: Never mind. Astryd helped me figure out what was going on. Geesh, it's rough being a newbie sometimes! :rolleyes:

Hello, thanks for the offer!

WebmasterAlex and I think that for now, we'd prefer to max out the current 4 lobbies before adding more rooms, to maintain as compact and efficient a network as possible.

Currently, there is still a decent amount of room left in MissBelle's and disalex's rooms, and some room in mine (Bezoar) and Astryd's.

To even things out on the way to maximizing the use of the current 4 rooms, I think that even if coffins are given to Astryd or me, we should probably then pass them on to MissBelle to fill her room up some more.

When the time comes when all 4 lobbies are closer to being filled, we can decide how to expand from there.

Thanks again to you and everyone else who has offered to help out with the teleporter lobbies,

FYI, here's the current count of teleporters in lobbies:

Maleficent lobby (Bezoar): 30
Yeti lobby (Astryd): 35
Ned lobby (MissBelle): 25
Blackheart lobby (Disalex): 27

Total: 117 teleporters

We initially started with Maleficent Evil Fortress as the room type, because at the time, it was the largest available room. I believe that these days, the easily available Skull Rock room can hold significantly more coffins.

Over the history of the Dis teleporter network, there have been many people who have volunteered rooms for use as lobbies -- thanks very much! With the current lobbies, I think we could easily accomodate at least 25-30 more teleporters. Still, I can see needing to expand in the moderately near future.

We'll have to decide how to go about it. Some thoughts:

- change the Central lobby (holding the teacup teleporters to each of the lobbies) from a Nemo room to a Skull Rock room, to allow more space for more teacups

- possibly add a link to a featured room or rooms, especially if there is ever a Dis "room contest". How to choose a room to "feature" without offending other people will be a challenge. Should featured rooms be rotated? Or should they be permanent?

- how to choose who owns the new lobbies that will eventually be added? Many have volunteered, and I don't want to snub anyone who volunteered a long time ago. Some criteria:

- on VMK frequently
- large DIS friend list
- a different "sphere" of DIS contacts than the current lobby owners
- not new to either VMK or to the DIS (too many people have "gone away", never to be seen again)

It all boils down to a commitment to being available, and being as unlikely as possible to move on and disappear from the VMK / DIS.

I could see perhaps adding 2 new lobbies, and (this part will probably annoy people who don't want their coffins moved around), starting off by redistributing exisiting coffins to new lobby owners, so that each lobby would have ~20 coffins.

If we didn't do that, then anyone trying to link into the network would have to find one of the "new" lobby owners, whereas if we redistributed, they could find any of the ~6 or so owners.

Comments?

First of all, thank you for continuing to coordinate the network. I usually try to visit several new rooms each time that I am on. While I don't usually find anyone in their room, I like to see how they are furnished/decorated. The last time I did it, Astryd was adding crates and teleporters to the Yeti lobby. Probably thought it was pretty strange that I was bouncing back and forth between the lobby and other rooms. Now for the comments - I think there should be a featured room rotation - monthly. I liked the idea of having people post pictures of their rooms and then having a Dis vote to select the winner (this was mentioned in another thread). Rather than having just one featured room - what if each lobby had one? The featured room(s) would be accessed by a teleporter other than the teacup or coffin so that everyone would know that it was a featured room. Also, after adding 2 more lobbies, I think the existing coffins should be rebalanced across the 6 rooms. The central lobbies should be converted to Skull Rocks to accomodate more teacups.

JeanJoe
08-30-2005, 08:26 AM
I had these exact same thoughts, a while ago!

Regarding featured rooms -- although I also initially thought it would be nice to have a "featured room link" off of each and every lobby, I thought it would be more of a pain to coordinate with each of the lobby owners. Also, after the rotation, the cool rooms would get lost :(

Rather, I thought maybe a special "Lobby to Featured Rooms" could be added. So, the boat teleporter in the Central Lobby -- instead of having it link to a room, it could link to a new "Dis Featured Room Lobby". The that lobby would have permanent links to rooms that had been selected by DIS folks. LOL, sort of like a "Best of" series of rooms that could continuously be added to.

I have A GIANT question. Why are all these big teleporter networks named after these GIANT discussion boards? For example Dis Teleporter Network (of course) And VMK Fan Site Teleporter Network.I know my friend in VMK and in Dis is in a Dis lobby,and my other friend is in the VMK FAn Site lobby,and both look alike with every room.I mean, it's like people are coping people! :earseek:

JeanJoe
10-06-2005, 02:06 PM
There's nothing terribly original about setting up teleporter networks -- it comes pretty naturally with inter-room teleporters and groups of people.

The Intercot people set one up on their own. I posted ideas about setting board teleporter networks both here and the VMK fan site, but it only initially caught on here at the Dis. Later on, CL_Tinkerblue was the driving force behind starting up the one at the VMK fan site, with help from CL_MrGenie.

I wouldn't call it copying -- it's kind of like in US patent law; can't patent something unless its non-trivial. A teleporter network is kind of trivial.

Structurally, the networks are sort of different. The Intercot network is a Swiss cheese of mini-networks linked together; the Dis network is tightly centralized to minimize the number of lobbies; and the VMK Fan Site network is centralized, but spread out for maximum expandability. None of the networks, I think, actually get much use, LOL.

I did sort of hope, at one point, that the large networks would eventually be linked as well (a Network of Networks), and dedicated a room in the Dis network to link networks. So far, only the VMK fan site network, and a small one of CL_Becky's, are included in that hub of hubs.

I am in the same boat. :boat: I have been watching out for you guys and have never come across you. I would like to get set up. Could you PM me as well? My kids are set up in the Dis Kids Network...now it's my turn. :wave2:

Sorry about the hassle, Brain. I'm on BubbasFriend's list, and I think (but can't remember) maybe on some of the others too.

Disalex and MissBelle don't seem to have been on much lately? Astryd is on less nowadays too. Come to think of it, I've been on less too.

Will try to keep an eye out for you.
Thanks Joe:)Now if only vmk would work...

If anyone has spare crates (just plain gray ones), I could use some for the current Maleficent lobby, as well as for a new lobby.

The Maleficent lobby, in the end, will have ~50 coffin teleporters, using maybe ~150 to ~175 crates. This lobby currently could use another ~20 crates to finish filling to capacity (currently at ~40 coffins).

The new lobby won't initially need ANY crates, but as it fills to capacity, it will also eventually use ~150-175 crates.

Of course, the new DIS Kids Network, I think, is also in need of crates, so if you catch CL_TigressJewel or PurpleDuck first, please help them out.

Thanks in advance! (And thanks to ShocoMousse for providing some crates already.)

Actually, I ended up feeling bad about asking, so I had a nice friend (who has 4 legs, a tail, nice fur, and sadly, will never again see the light of day) get me some crates.

Thanks for offering! And, glad you got your name, finally!

Saxsoon, joece --

In the last few days, the only teleporter lobby owners who have been on, and not even all that much, have been me (Bezoar) and Pumpkinfish (MissBelle), so it's been a little difficult to hook up.

My playing time is decreasing a bit, but I'll try to keep an eye out and/or post when I'm on. Also, ask other DIS'ers on your friends list to see if we happen to be on when you are.

Good luck, sorry it's such a pain.

Here's an idea:

It's very difficult for a new DIS member to actually find a teleport lobby owner, because they are almost certainly not on a lobby owner's friends list yet. But it's generally not TOO hard to meet a DIS VMK'er who *does* have a lobby owner as a friend.

I was wondering what people thought about having DIS members who DID have lobby owners on their friends list, post their VMK names and volunteering to take a coffin from the new members, and then holding on to them to pass to a lobby owner when they're on?

Ideally, these coffin holders would:

- have as many of the lobby owners on their friends list as possible
- be online often enough that it would help the pass-off
- be trustworthy enough to not risk people giving them coffins, never to be seen again

This would greatly facilitate getting coffins placed in the lobbies. Thanks!

(Worked great when BubbasFriend and somebody else who for the life of me I can't remember right now, held their friend's coffins and gave them to me when they found me.)

I think that is a great idea. I would volunteer to do that. I am on a few times during the day and usually for awhle in the evenings. If anyone would like me to hold on to a coffin for them and pass it on, Just let me know!

A bunch of us have put together a teleporter network to link our personal rooms together, and to provide a Dis Common Room to hang out in. All are welcome to join!

How to add a teleportation portal from your room to the Dis Teleporter Network

1) buy a coffin teleporter from the Golden Horseshoe Mercantile
2) place ONE of the pair of teleporters in your own room
3) trade the OTHER teleporter to the OWNER of a Lobby Room.

Currently:
- JeanJoe aka Bezoar
- Pumpkinfish aka MissBelle
- WebmasterAlex aka disalex
- Astryd (as herself)

Easiest way to find one of these people: get some DIS members on your friend's list, and ask them regularly whether any of the above 4 people are on. Remember, we do not hang out on VMK all day long just hoping that someone will want a teleporter placed -- it might be a while before you actually find one of us!

4) the Lobby Room owner will place the OTHER teleporter that you traded
5) if you want your teleporter back, just ask

IMPORTANT: only get the coffin teleporters (at the Golden Horseshoe Mercantile), because they take up less space

How to get to the Dis Common Room
- use the coffin teleporter in your room to transport to one of the Dis Teleporter Lobbies (there are currently four)
- then use the teacup teleporter to get to the Central Lobby (the hub)
- then use the Boat teleporter to reach the Dis Common Room (currently donated by Taryn aka DoomCookie)






===== DON'T READ FURTHER UNLESS YOU ARE BORED =====


OK, now for the painful details of how it all works, from my original thoughts:
Shared room / teleportation room network

Goal: as much as possible, to share a common room, even when that room's owner is not logged in


Method:

- one lobby room, which has a teleporter linking to a teleporter in the common room

- multiple players who each have 1 teleporter in their own room and 1 teleporter in the lobby room

- what this allows: even when the lobby room owner and/or common room owner are NOT logged in, someone who has a teleporter in their own room can get to the lobby, and then get to the common room

- when we want to change the common room, we can just move the single teleporter in the common room into a new common room; the rest of the network stays intact


Style:

- to cram as many personal room teleporters in the lobby room as possible, people should purchase coffin teleporters because they take up less space, and because then it will be clear that coffins transport to personal rooms and not to common rooms

- the lobby room teleporter into the common room is currently a tea cup, so it will stand out

- if we need more common rooms in the future, we could use the other non-coffin teleporters to link to additional common rooms

- if we need more lobby space for more personal teleporters, we could create more lobby rooms, and then link together the lobby rooms. Perhaps each lobby room could link to a different common room.


Caveats:

- if you provide a teleportation link from your room to the lobby, people will be able to backtrack into your room. If you don't want people to wander around in your room, rope off around the teleporter

- if you rope off the "normal" entrance to the COMMON room (not around the teleportation tea cup), and no one is in the lobby, it will be tedious to let people who don't have a personal lobby teleportation portal into the common room, because when they "go to" you, they will end up behind the ropes

- perhaps the common room should not be roped off, but that means lots of random people will drop in; this could be set depending on the common room owner's preference?

I've spent the last few days searching for someone in the game to give my transporter to, I've searched by room name and by room owners name. Once I got 1 room listed but the owner wasn't in it.

Could some of the network room owners post the times they will be in the game or in their room for me to find them?

Thanks, I wanted to get in before halloween.

cat_herder, urakan (I think, not sure), disneymiss, Saxsoon, joece -

I *think* this is the list of people who have requested to get linked into the teleporter network. Some might have already been linked; others may no longer be interested.

Since I'm not on as much any more, here's another idea: even if I'm *not* on VMK, but at least close to a computer where I can log on, I'll PM all of you that I'm available, and then PM again when I'm gone. This will probably be in the evenings Eastern time.

Also, I have a night shift on Friday night, so if work is not too bad, I'll try to be available then.

Can I join? :cool1: :cool1: :cool1: and if so, does it have to be a coffin teleporter? I have so many of them linking all my rooms I lose track. If it has to be one for sake of space or something, that's cool, I can get a coffin.

JeanJoe
10-28-2005, 05:38 AM
Of course!

But, yes, coffins only please. When you see the DIS lobbies (like the Maleficent lobby), you'll understand why. We have almost 45 coffins in there now; if we used any other type, it would have filled at about 15 or so, tops.

Thanks to CL_Bezoar for putting my transporter in the Maleicent Lobby.

Be sure to go on through the jungle boat transporter in my main room to the second room and see my Waterfall. I have a Halloween Party Room as well, you can get to by following the trasporters from the main room.

I'd like to apologize in advance, to everyone trying to have coffins placed. For work reasons, I'll be very, very scarce for the entire month of November. I can try to be available on weekends for a little bit, but honestly, I expect to be very difficult to reach.

Of the other teleporter lobby people, I believe MissBelle (VMK) / pumpkinfish (DIS) might be people's best bet. Perhaps you could try to PM her?

Sorry again.
