# [[User:Pauling/Notable | Notable Sage Pirates]] currently holds my completely unofficial list of "notable" Sage denizens. It could use some trimming, but the general idea for organizing it is there. Interestingly, as of the first draft, it contains less than 25% of the actual pirate pages for Sage. Better than I thought, but still a lot of fluff if you're just looking for the big movers and shakers and whatnot... shame so many of the people on the list retired since it was last updated.

* Install the [http://www.beggarchooser.com/firefox/ Linkification] plugin. That will change all the text URL's to clickable links so you won't have to copy/paste them from the log.
 
* Open yohoho.log in Firefox, and bookmark it. That file is in your YPP directory, wherever that may be.
 
* Any Info pages you view in the game will show up in a line like this:

After typing /cwho or /fwho and viewing the info page in the game, just refresh the log and click on whatever link you need. Yum.
