A collaborative article. Overview How can you get people to help you get better at CIV IV? This guide collects suggestions from a number of CFC contributors, who have seen enough questions on the discussion boards to notice which posts get a lot of action, and which die on the vine, and to recommend those habits which are more likely to get a favorable response from the audience. Contributors CornPlanter DaveMcW KMadCandy madscientist VoiceOfUnreason Mechanics OK, guys, here's how I think this works. I plan to keep a subscription to the thread, and when there have been contributions, I'll endeavor to get a link into the table of contents. You get to manage the contents of your post(s). So each of us gets to write our own chapter on what's important to us, individually. Consensus? Bah Humbug. We all have our own interests, peeves, and Pavlovian responses. Feel free to thump me by pm if you think I haven't noticed your contribution. This is intended to be open collaboration, after all. If we get enough Q&A to warrant it, I'll add a section to the TOC.
