[19:58:12] Megver83: si, fue intenso que 3 devs se fueran
[19:58:20] emulatorman: si
[19:58:32] Megver83: y se llevaran el arte
[19:58:55] emulatorman: bah, pero eso ahora estara publicamente en un
lugar neutral
[19:59:06] emulatorman: pueden copiarlo a gusto y desgusto
[19:59:13] Megver83: si me dijo coadde
[19:59:23] Megver83: es decir, lo movieron


[19:58:12] Megver83: yes, it was hard that 3 devs leave
[19:58:20] emulatorman: yes
[19:58:32] Megver83: and they took away the artwork
[19:58:55] emulatorman: bah, but that will be public in a neutral place
[19:59:06] emulatorman: you can copy it as you want and like
[19:59:13] Megver83: Yes, coadde told me
[19:59:23] Megver83: that means, you moved it

And later he told me:

[10:58:55] emulatorman: coadde me dijo que ni bien suba las artes a
savannah, me dijo que va a empezar a restaurar en la wiki de Parabola
[10:59:06] emulatorman: con arreglos
[10:59:11] Megver83: ok
[10:59:22] Megver83: es decir, lo van a re-subir con modificaciones
[10:59:56] emulatorman: si
[11:00:00] emulatorman: una version mejorada


[11:36:26] emulatorman: puedes escribir una carta en devs aclarando
que tuvimos una conversacion (que fue ahora reciente) de que vamos a
restaurar las imagenes en Parabola y organizarlas de una mejor forma
en la wiki de como estaba antes? crazytoon y coadde van a escribir una
carta alla en devs en unas horas
[11:36:44] Megver83: ok
[11:36:52] emulatorman: vimos que la organizacion y composicion
anterior expuesta estaba un desastre
[11:36:57] Megver83: de todas formas ya les dije que iban a resubirlas
[11:36:56] emulatorman: de composición
[11:37:15] emulatorman: no tenian ni un vinculo ni con el texto
[11:37:34] emulatorman: y las ilustraciones se repetian continuamente
[11:37:49] Megver83: :O
[11:37:59] emulatorman: entonces antes de ellos retirarse quieren
dejar un buen legado en arte y bien prolijo para la comunidad en Parabol
[11:38:22] Megver83: que bueno


[10:58:55] emulatorman: coadde told me that as soon as I upload the
arts to Savannah, he told me that he will begin to restore in the
Parabola wiki
[10:59:06] emulatorman: with fixes
[10:59:11] Megver83: ok
[10:59:22] Megver83: that means, you will re-upload it with modification
[10:59:56] emulatorman: yes
[11:00:00] emulatorman: an improved version


[11:36:26] emulatorman: you can write a letter to devs clarifying that
we had a conversation (this one recently) about that we will restore
the images in Parabola and organize them in a better way in the wiki
compared to how was before? crazytoon and coadde will write a letter
there in devs in some hours
[11:36:44] Megver83: ok
[11:36:52] emulatorman: we saw the previous organization and
composition it was a disaster
[11:36:57] Megver83: anyways I told them you were going to re-upload the
[11:36:56] emulatorman: of composition
[11:37:15] emulatorman: they had neither a link nor the text
[11:37:34] emulatorman: and the illustrations were repeated continuously
[11:37:49] Megver83: :O
[11:37:59] emulatorman: then before they retire they want to leave a
good legacy in art and very neat for the community in Parabola
[11:38:22] Megver83: That's good

Of course!
