    @Zombi - It's a bit clunky, which I'm sure isn't helped by the lethargy of being in a larger Wave. Messed with everything but what I'm guessing is a potential layer option (the one that looks like a pad of paper). Very basic, easy to intuit. Then again, given that Wave itself is in Preview right now, I don't think it would be fair to expect anything past something rudimentary in the art gadget arena.

    I edited this originally into my previous post, but I'd rather repost it, as the thread has moved on.

    [In relation to your previous post]@Seanta - That sounds brilliant! If we first type out a general setting, some characters, etc... This could just be simple notes, to get some sort of structure and initiative to it, without narrowing in the plot too much. Secondly, different people could try to write the script, maybe like it is done in the beginning of Freakangels:
    Panel 1
    BOY: ZZZ
    KK: ...OH, GOD, WHO ARE YOU?
    BOY: ZZZ

    Panel 2
    KK: GIMME THAT.
    BOY: ZZZ

    Panel 3
    (no dialogue)

    Panel 4
    KK: POOR LITTLE BOY.
    KK: I WONDER WHERE YOU CAME FROM.


    Finally, we can get to the drawing process, where people can grab different frames or pages (depending on project size) and illustrate as they feel. Here there could also be room for uploading concept art (so we get some similarity to the settings and characters) and improvement. Remember, you are able to move files through Wave, so it is possible to upload the *.psd file for others to improve upon as well.

    I'm now unable to edit anything, it crashes every time I try and put a new comment in.
    This happened after trying to use the drawing widget thingie :(

    @PintSizedCat - Are you henry.barnett@googlewave? Have you tried to log out, wait for a bit, and then log on again? It seems as if you're still in edit mode for the drawing. Maybe that'll help.

    @Zombi - I would suggest that we create a separate wave for that, link it in the primary Whitechapel wave, and allow people to opt-in if they're interested. Just remember, none of the actual writing/ideation process can go here, as we don't do that here (it would violate The Rules).

    @PintSizedCat - Yeah, it's pretty much crashtastic for me now as well, at least at any point that I try to reply to it. Might need to remove it for the time being.

    @ Pint & Seanta - I'll remove the drawing window, maybe that'll help.

    Hey, if we're putting together a D&D group, or any kind of Wave-based rpg count me in. I think it would be fun with the WC crowd.

    @Internaut - Consider yourself tossed.

    Edit: Or not. I keep getting Firefly quotes whenever I try to do so.

    Guide to getting on the Whitechapel Wave Group

    Alright, I'm going to assume you have already joined the Whitechapel Google Group (wchapel@googlegroups.com)

    So the first thing you want to do is add wchapel@googlegroups.com to your contacts. The submit button will be greyed out, but just hit enter and everything will be fine.

    contact

    Next up you want to set up a search. Click the plus sign by searches and add "group:wchapel@googlegroups.com" in the query field and save it as whatever you want.

    search

    Using this search will show any waves that have had the wchapel@googlegroups.com user added to it. Obviously if you want all of us to see your wave, add the wchapel user to it.

    Primary WC wave appears to be broken for now for a number (all?) of us, due to the gadget issue. You can still read it, but if you try to reply/edit/etc. it has a tendency to give you an error and not process the changes attempted. Such is often the nature of Preview bugs. So, I'm in the process setting up v1.1 with expanded guidelines to help it both run smoother and more productively for those using it. Once I've got the primary blip in place, I'll start adding people over, as well as integrating the Google Group that Jonny has listed above.

    @Zombi & Internaut - This should remedy your tossing issues... ...

    can I get an invite if someone has a spare? sgrsickness at gmail. I want to stare at it and be confused too!

    It was the WhiteChapel wave that was foobar so I started another wave concerning the Introduction to Algorithms MIT lectures which I'm using to take notes whilst working.
    There's a nifty little robot that you can use to write LaTeX notation
    http://www.scienco.org/tag/watexy/
    watexy@appstop.com I think it is.
    If peeps are intrigued by the notes I'd be more than happy to add anyone who wants to see it.

    I made it onto Wave thanks much to Seantaclaus, he really is Father Christmas. Unfortunately, I haven't actually had a discussion with anyone yet making it terribly difficult to test this application out. Anyway, I think I've managed to join the Whitechapel google group so that gets me one step closer.
