Something doesn't save? I actually haven't looked at the social editor code
yet but people previously have mentioned the desire for it.

What you'll basically need to do is make the structure somewhat like this:

A lot of generic functions that people can change to work with their guild
system whether it be a public one or their own.  Like add_room for GenOLC,
if the format of the world file ever changes, Oasis or anything else using
the function doesn't care one bit.  If you want to think in C++ terms
you're trying to separate the user interface from the actual system as much
as possible.  Try to get as much of the basic stuff done and then make
it so that any special features of their guild code can be easily added to
the OLC later.
