The Mind42 website seems to have come over "not there" for me too - I guess it's lucky we prefer the other one.

I'm going to give Emil's "FreeMind" software suggestion a whirl over the weekend and see if that brings anything extra.

Re. the front back confusion with rotating kites - get a kite with an asymmetric sail (like my Akuji ;-) )

This is an excellent idea and the Mindmeister one appears to be the clearest.

Is it going to be possible to have more than one link on a node ? eg It would be handy to have a link to say both the animation and video for a trick on the Prism site.

Could you link the Walk of Shame to an animation or video? I don't think I have ever managed to do one successfully. :oops:

Walk of shame nooo problem and I can do all the variations, from petulent and moody through to disgust and disbelief. As a personal favourite and default I opt for dogged resignation with just a hint of truculence (the latter prevents onlookers from feeling the need to console me).

Of course its a tuff trick to pull off to start with but hey, practise makes perfect. Wonder if its on the TP list this year :lol:

There's no such thing as the walk of shame. If you never crash, you're not trying hard enough. It's as simple as that. Use the 'walk of contemplation' to work out how to not have to make it next time.

How about a Walk of Blame then ?

Mind42 works for me, but the MindMeister looks WAY better now you've added many branches. Seriously impressive piece of work Keith. Major Kudos to all contributors for this one.

Like the addition of all the "landed" tricks, and "Walk of Contemplation" is just perfect :D

So this why people use long lines, to give themselves more time to think about what they did wrong. Must check out the shop for hugh lengths of Shanti :lol:

This really is looking good & very useful now, top effort guys.
Any chance of adding to the links at top, especially as the triki wiki is fubar?

Is that MindMeister account now closed?
You can still export from it, although the PDF does not include the hyperlinks which is a bit disappointing. Nevertheless it's useful to have one printed out for reference.

Hello Sub, I can still edit the map (once I realised my browser had 'forgotten' my login and I had logged in on the mindmeister home page), and you're still down as a collaborator...
