I didn't think I'd get to show this to you for a little while.
I've got complete control over how things translate over to Kongming's Archives. Each little tag we create here can interact with Kongming’s Archives in its own unique way (a good example would be comments being prominent here, but not even showing up at all, even in the source code, over at Kongming's Archives).
It may not work out too well for any pages which require extremely complicated layouts, but it can be made to work with almost anything else we are able to dream up.

Nope! This is for anything at all we want it to do. If we wanted to create pages for each historic book (Sanguozhi, Zizhi tongjian, Hou Han shu
, etc.) we could do that here and anyone we've chosen to trust with editing rights will be able to update and improve on the articles over at Kongming's Archives just by editing posts here in the forum.
Best of all, this doesn't take too much time on my part, so if you, say, decided you wanted to introduce a whole new article about a game, for the novel section, or whatever, all you would have to do is come here and create a new topic then type out your article (or paste it in). Some basic markup tags could be applied for formatting and you could write out what you wanted of the header tags. When ready, I'd write the CSS needed to display the article (quite easy), apply some minor editing to the article here, add a new page at KMA (which essentially just contains a topic ID and the CSS), and then upload it. The article is then published and linked to Scholars of Shen Zhou. Even with all the coding I've done to put this together over the past few days publishing some of our little test articles here has been a trivial task.
I think it is working out better than I expected.
And it is easy to make these things look good over at KMA, too.
