  41.  
  42. > I DON'T WANT TO SIGN UP FOR TWATTER TO GET UPDATES ON QUEST SCHEDULES

  50.  
  51. > Other quest sites?
  52. tgchan, Anonkun, QuestionableQuesting (forum, requires sign-up). There are others but we don't talk about them.
  53.  
  54. > Which quests have eBooks?
  55. pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb These, others are currently being created or might be linked in their individual threads.
  56.  
  57. > How do I make quest eBooks?
  58. You will need a text editor(optional, useful to strip residual formatting), LibreOffice Writer, Calibre and a PDF viewer.
  59. (1) Find the archived threads, CTRL + F the QM tripcode and copy the posts into the text editor, tag the beginnings and endings of threads somehow.
  60. (2) Save as plaintext.
  61. (3) Open in LibreOffice, apply formatting, use the Headings and Title functions to distinguish between threads.
  62. (4) Save one ODT and one HTML version in a folder with the Quest's title.
  63. (5) Export as PDF, save the result in the same folder.
  64. (6) Open Calibre, Click [Add Books], wait till the import is done, then [Convert Books] and choose MOBI and EPUB.
  65. (7) Complete folder and compress.
  66. (8) Upload to a DDL host.
  67. (9) Post.
