===Metamorphose FAQ===

<b>What are the changes to the new site?</b>
* Multiple transformation categories.
* On the fly categories.
* Wiki style editing with saved history for rollbacks.
* A trusted user level that can approve and reject submissions
* Preview options for entries and the message board.

<b>What isn't working?</b>
I started this recoding of the site back in January of 06, and it still isn't finished. So instead of waiting for it to be completed. Which never really happens. I decided to go live with the new code as is. This means that many things aren't working yet.
* Submission Wizard (only a very basic submission page exists right now)
* Image Uploaded (there is no image uploading right now)
* Preferences do not work.
* Starting message board thread linked to an entry.

<b>What is wiki style editing?</b>
Wiki's are websites that let anyone make changes to the sites data. <a href=http://www.wikipedia.org>Wikipedia</a> is the best know example of this. Any page that has an 'Edit this Page' link, can be changed by you. If you will notice, that includes this page. See a spelling or grammer error on this page? You can fix it. But there are difference between Wikipedia and the new Metamorphose. The mark up style used to the pages is similar to Wikipedia, but
is much more like html than Wikipedia. Also submissions do not go live right away. They have to be approved by someone with a 'Trusted User' or higher access level. Wikipedia let anyone make changes at any time. It has been my personal experience that there is a small group of people that visit this site that submit incorrect or madeup information. Because the internet will always have trolls, I have decided to stick with an improval system.

<b>What are on the fly categories?</b>
Each entry can be part of any category. But there is no set list. You can add any category to any entry, or even make up new ones. If you click on the 'Categories' link on the menu you can see all the current categories.

<b>What are rollbacks?</b>
Whenever a change is made to a page. The system logs it and keeps a history of all changes that have been made. If someone manages to change an entry to something you thing is incorrect. You have the option manually correctly it or rolling it back to a previous version. If you click on the 'History' link, you can see the change history. You can view each version the entry has gone through. If you click on the rollback button, you submit a request to change it back to that version.

<b>Who are trusted users?</b>
Guests are anyone who does not log into the site. Users do log into the site. Users that have posted the site can be promoted to trusted users. When the site went live, I promoted anyone who had submitted 4 or more active entries. Trusted users do not have to wait for changes to be approved. Their changed go live right away. They can also approve other peoples changes.

<b>What about adding icons for the different types of transformations?</b>
A surprisingly popular feature of the first version of metamorphose.org that was dropped the first time the site was rewritten. I will probably return this feature whenever it get around to making new gifs that fit in with the new site.
