You are at this page because you clicked on the red question mark to the right. If you already know your way around this site, you need not read the following sections. Notice that this page is more like a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) in the way that questions come before the answer.
1. How do you view these files? Their extensions are unfamiliar to me (.ram, .mp3, etc.).
We provide links to the players associated with such filetypes on the pages they can be found on. Most browsers are MIDI capable, but if yours isn't, try downloading a newer browser from Microsoft or Netscape. MP3 players can be found on the MP3 page, contained within the Music Section of this site. As for the .ram and .viv filetypes, their respective players may be found on the pages where the files are listed on (e.g. The Confrontations download page).
2. How are the pages organized?
The hardest part of creating a web page is the organization of content. To keep an index of all the pages, we have created and updated a Site Map, detailing each and every page. As for the organization of content, the top bar represents categories. For example, the Music category leads to 2 separate links displayed on the bottom bar. So when a user clicks on the Credits category, he or she then is sent a new bottom bar with more specific links to the content. This way a lot of content can be packed into as few pages as possible. Hopefully we didn't overdue anything =).
3. Help! A page isn't loading or a file isn't downloading.
If you find that something isn't working right, please take into consideration that the server may have crashed, or that the server load is extremely high at the time you are accessing the page. Most files are stored on the Thinkquest server, but some are stored at other locations, so if you can access files on the Thinkquest server but not download a MP3 player through a link on one of our pages, it is due to some circumstance the other server has fallen into. You could always try to download the file or page again, as we have first hand experience that sometimes your request is lost in the process and you have to try again.
4. I don't understand what this word means!
If you have trouble with any terms, please check out the Glossary. If that doesn't help, you can always use a dictionary, or even an online dictionary.
If you have any further questions about the page, feel free to e-mail Will or Natalie about it.
