PostSubject: Futurecraft wiki moderation   Sat Oct 20, 2012 8:45 am

Well some of you had the bright idea to create a wiki before we have any content sending the wiki into total chaos. There are a lot of random pages , mostly empty and finding any pages with actual content is really hard.

In order to organize this whole thing I took the liberty of adding a table of contents into the main page allowing people to actually find something.


How do I add my page into the list ?

Click edit, write down the exact name of your page in the right section (if there is no right section write down in "other", new sections will be created when we get a few similar pages in "other"), add a link to your page and done.


What do I add to the list ?

As this is the front page of the wiki only high quality pages will enter this section. Here are a couple of rules to define if your page is appropriate.
Pages that do not fullfil those minimal requirements will be removed.

- The page should have content. No empty pages or short paragraphs.
Correct example: Taln Sovereignty
Incorrect example: Eggman Empire

- The page should be lore-friendly .
Correct example: List of Weapons (though I have to disagree with you on the weapons there Razz)
Incorrect example: Exion (sorry but ponies are not a valid choice for space combat sim )

- Overall quality: make it looks like a wiki page. Talk in 3rd person, try not to use random swearing, shortcuts (u, couse, srsly ) , make it look professional Smile . I won't judge you too harshly for that one unless it really can't be ignored.

- Official sections are off-limits: When the community agrees on a curtain aspect to apply to the mod or when the devs release official stuff it will be added to the official sections. Those sections are not to be touched unless approved.

- Content sorting: Not all sorts of content should appear on the front page. Specific pages related to your factions such as planets should be linked to your page and only this page should be linked to the home page. Ships , vehicles etc. should be linked to your faction and if you don't have a faction contact me and I'll find where to put it.

Maybe more rules will be added when problems arise.





Having this table of contents will allow to sort out the high quality pages from the random ones that may still exist if you REALLY want ... it will also set some standrads that will help people who don't meet them to improve their pages. I'm not going to run after you BTW it's your responsibility to add your page to the table of contents. I will check the newly added pages though so make sure they meet the requirements.

I have to agree with you.
Anyway, I edited the EE page to be deleted.

(I didn´t delete it because I don´t know how.)

Error is the admin. Every dev/moderator on the forum has staying power on the wiki as well, maybe make a 'Prefect' rank for people like cats, Iv, and me for quality assurance when those with power are absent.

Is it alright to have separate pages for ships, or should they be put in the faction page?

Ship concept art, adverts and descriptions belong on the faction page. If you want to go the wikia route and have those amazing links every other sentence, merely have them direct to an anchor in the page that would ostensibly lead to the ship you are referring to.

You may not modify the front page without the express consent of Error and/or Iv.

The species completely died out approximately...
Let's see...
The Great Stalemate ended about 20bya...
and the war raged for about 350 years...
and SB 0214 was destroyed about a year from the start of the war...
so the pony race went extinct about 20,000,000,351 years ago.
I nearly forgot to carry the fact that I don't give a fuck! Silly me!
Anyways, I was meaning to do some cleanup of my faction's pages so that it looked a bit better. Currently I'm still trying to decide which of the 7 back stories I've used create the least inconsistencies with what's happened. Also, I did some more math for the time lines of all my factions. If anyone would be so nice as to give me the current date of affairs so that I could give some proper dates, that'd be swell.

Faction-specific. That's what I used, anyway.

In actuality: I have done no other calculations than what you see before. So the current date would be helpful for reference. I don't like lists of how many years ago and prefer lists of dates. Besides, how can I make my own dating system if I don't even know the current age of the universe? It's a bit of a necessity to know the current date in order for me to create my timing scale. Make sense now?

Also, Equestria was destroyed pretty much 999.999.999.998 Years ago, two years after the organisation of the EE broke down due to the main military strategist disappearing.
