Machinae Supremacy Fan Wiki?
« on: May 25, 2006, 12:43:19 pm »
The wiki is open for business.

http://bluewav.co.uk/machinae_wiki/

Please add or edit stuff if you like.

I thought that maybe making a Machinae Supremacy fan wiki might be a good idea. (Actually Fiindil brought this up, but I pretend it's my idea, bwahaha)

It could be a site where you can find all semiofficial machinae related stuff that has been posted here in the forum, e.g. band and song information, fan artwork, machinae related links, forum FAQs and so on. I can imagine it would be quite handy for people who are not willing to wade through hundreds of forum posts to search for a piece of information. Also, since wikis are all the rage for some time now, it would make a nice addition to other forms of fan sites (Forum, Official FAQ, Myspace).

Setting up a wiki and creating some initial content shouldn't be that time consuming. We'd need hosting (Lysix offered to host mediawiki on his webspace) and the content could be gathered from the depths of the forum. Mediawiki should have a solid user management, so we all could add some info if we want to. If it doesn't work, we can scrap it anytime. If it's a success, we can consider registering it's own domain.

I think it bears repeating that it was my idea. My ideas are never good ideas.

Don't be so hard on yourself, Fiindil. You never know until you try, do you?
Go wiki!

I am of the opinion that this should be merged with the history wiki. No point having two!


also I think it's a kick ass idea.

Once we have the wiki, I'll copy the stuff from the history wiki to the new one.

Stop being an idiot.

That's a wiki page. We plan on having a customised wiki, which is infinitely more detailed and intrinicate than the sole page of wiki.

+1 for merging it with the current fan based made wiki, just seperate the sections

Has anyone check http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Main_Page for their wiki on MaSu? We could use the one on uncyclopedia for this issue?

Just sent Lysix a PM...

I don't really know how the user management in MediaWiki (that's one of the most popular wiki systems and the software Wikipedia runs on, btw) works, but I guess there's admins and main pages locking to prevent wiki vandalism.

Further ideas for the content? Maybe the wiki can also host the guitar stuff, DDR simfiles and so on.
