3.17 Project System

Sometimes it is difficult to coordinate the communication and activities between different members of an organisation, be it city, guild, clan, etc. People are often not in the realms at the same time or have a hard time knowing what their fellow members are doing. The project system attempts to alleviate some of this difficulty. It aims to provide a way in which the members of an organisation can communicate what is going on and who is in charge of it (so people may contact them for more information).                                                           

Projects are created by leaders of an organisation (or someone with creation permissions) and each project is assigned a 'leader'. This leader is then able to update information regarding the project (such as its name or completion status) as well as add notes so that members know what the project is about. Two people always have access to modify and/or delete a project: the organisation leader (can affect ANY project), and the project's leader (can only affect his or her own project).                                                               

   --- The following commands are used to view projects ---

   PROJECTS [BY <person>] [IN <group pattern>]

      Display a list of projects that are visible to you. Eg. 
      IN a*". PROJECTS by itself displays every project. (The 
      BY and IN clauses are optional).

   PROJECT <id>

      Display detailed information on a specific project; 
      including the name, status, and description.

   --- These are used by organisation leaders and project leaders
       to create/modify/delete a project ---

   PROJECT NEW IN <group> NAMED <name>

      Create a new project in <group> (must be specified, because 
      you can belong to more than one) with the given name. This can 
      only be done by the organisation leader. Once it is created, 
      the project leader may be set.

   PROJECT <id> SET <property> <value>

      This is used to change information about the project. 
      Available properties are: 'name', 'status', 'info', and 
      'leader'. Leader is only settable by the organisation leader. 
      Name is what is displayed in the project listing. Status is 
      a short description of the current status of the project 
      (such as "Planning", "80% Complete", "Finished", etc). Info 
      is a long description of what the project is about. Basically 
      any information that others need to know. Examples:
         PROJECT 1 SET status planning
         PROJECT 1 SET leader


      Use this to edit the info of a project using the Aetolian 


      This will remove the project from all records. Only usable 
      by an organisation or individual project's leader.


      Display a list of the groups you are in and what level of
      access you have. It is either 'Normal' or 'FULL'. FULL 
      indicates you can create projects in that group.
