Default I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE

Ok, as a few of you probably know... I'm a Fluff/lore freak, I trudge through the forums looking for every bit of lore, eventually hoping to make a cohesive database of everything tau in the story... I'm having increasing difficulty finding the pages I want 274 pages of posts is a bit daunting... I need help, I'm going to make a seprate yahoo mail account, don't know what yet, but we'll see. I'm looking for lore, copied bits pages, saved html, ANYTHING that can help me get this project off the ground, this is partly driven by a desire to know all the secrets of one of my favorite universes, but partly because alot of people have questions and I want to make a database where everyone can go a learn everything Tau... Language, grammar, history... every bit of lore and fluff... please note this is not about short stories, this isn't about personal fluff, this is about what is general and accepted, certain people, such as calmsword, will make an apperance because of what they did in the Medusa V Campaign... others, such as Ko'vash'Shi (my cmdr) will only make an appearance because they are associated with people who helped make this.
Oh and yes I know that this freakishly fanboyish, but I love knowing stories, and this is the one I can help tell, its one I love and have made short stories for, its one I actually interact in and the guys (gw) who made the original made me feel like I had some power over the story. Thank you

(oh and if I get this off the ground maybe I'll move on to a database on some other army, maybe necrons next... since they've been the bane of my armies exsitance since I started, but thats after I get this off the ground)

Here is a good place to start. Calmsword has spent a great deal of time trying to compile what we have on the Tau from GW.

Not writing a book, a database, heck, maybe I'll put the finished results here, or make a website like wowwiki.com (for world of warcraft) except tauwiki.com lol. but I've said what I could use... I'm setting up the account now so I'll link it in my next post.

I feel your pain, I feel your pain... A lexicon will definently be apart of this... and once we drag all these bits of data together, how 'bout we show it off on the main GW forums, showing that once again, Tauonline and its users rock, because who else would help get this done!

Alright I got a new email for the data base, email me at

taudatabase@yahoo.com

with information if you got it. I'm currently working on the stuff from Calmsword's posts: Ultimate Tau Database...
well I hope to make it penultimate... but only because it will be a bit more coherent without people's posts interdispersed among the data posts.
Also I'll be making a Player made Fluff section... stuff that GW has never specified but which we have come up ourselves, such as why Tau have blue blood.
are there alot of Tau stories (like Fire Warrior) out from Black Library? they would be a big help.

Heck why bother with the database (no offense), lets get a wiki! I'm not sure how, but theres this thing called wikia, its like a wiki but for random stuff... halo wikia, runescape wikia, etc.

this will sort of become a wiki type thing... wiki doesn't have a half the data on the tau that we do... you see?
