jinian: (c'est la vie)
Antidote to yesterday? Antidote to yesterday.

So for my dragon game, one of the things we do is compete for dominance. One of the best ways to win is to offer prizes so that people who aren't on your team will help you out. (There are 11 teams, so, plenty of people you're not competing against directly at any given time.) The prizes need to be posted on the site's forums, which run on BBCode, and the tradition is to use code that calls the image of the item.

This is a pain in the butt to hand-write.

Tonight I noticed that, actually, we have a Google sheet with all the names of the items already organized, and it's really tedious to copypaste tags onto things, and you know this is a thing that computers are awfully good at... I stuck another tab onto the spreadsheet and played around a bit, and it was not that hard at all to make the sheet generate the BBCode for us. One of the most annoying and time-consuming jobs we have just got about 95% easier.

I think my teammates just elected me spreadsheet wizard for life. So very smug.
