Wiki Fun

Fun fact: there are over 150 named characters in the Intimate History! These are the fun bits of trivia you discover when playing around in the MLM/Intimate History wiki. I encourage you all to join me in monkeying around and updating pages over there. The religion section could always use updating with info that Meilin drops in the forum (didn't she just make another one explaining more about the holidays?).

There's even an entry for the forum itself now Wink

I am always scared I'm going to screw something up. Does ours have a sandbox I can play in before actually adding stuff?

I can revert to old versions if need be, and I vet every entry. I just don't have time to write it all out myself. Plus also, random points awards for active wikinauts.

The MeiLinWiki is the first one I've worked on too, so I understand. It really isn't that bad! I recommend always using the preview function at the bottom of the edit view before saving.

But yes, there is a Sandbox area. Also very useful are the Help Pages.

... to the MeiLinWiki seem to have been WikiVirgins before that. I find that strangely fitting. Biggrin

For my part, I hope to be able to do my regular comb-over for wikiable stuff in book 3 chapters 16+ sometime over the summer/hiatus, but I have no idea when, exactly, that'll happen.

But they still scare me. The markup is so foreign to what I know and I haven't taken the time to learn it is all. Plus, most wikis I've been to are rabid about their formatting standards.

All the gods and goddesses with the new information about what real world deities they were based on and whatever new details about their portfolios that were given.

When I figure out where that holiday post went (found it!), I'll add summaries to the holidays page, if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

And looking at the formatting on various wikipedia entries should help me figure out the markup.

Would it be okay to add images to the character bios, for the ones we have portraits (and/or fan art) of? I notice there's also a lot of background information not listed in even the main characters' pages. Is this to avoid spoilers or because no one's done it yet?

And speaking of fan art, the thumbs in the fan art gallery are not clickable.

ETA: I so do not need another thing to be obsessed over, but there's no help for it now. It's all your fault Capriox.

ETA again: Now I'm not sure where the best place for the information is. There's not really enough to justify creating pages for any days but Neya's and Nerr's, but it seems like the wheel of the year page and the deity pages would be a little cluttered by the information.

I may try to restructure the wheel of the year page. Or let someone else do it. :x

Because no one's done it yet. Smile

um, huh? *going to look*

Whoa! So weird! For some reason, the footer information is eclipsing it, at least in terms of divs. Why just that page?! I will investigate. Thanks for telling me.

Random points, just keeping telling yourself random points. Smile

No, go ahead and start pages. There will be more info to put there; what you're making is what's called a "stub" page, to be filled in later.

Yes, random points. Like the 3 I just gave you by way of apology for creating a new distraction for you Wink

Thanks for helping, Raigne.

I'm not worried about being distracted. I am distracted by everything, always. I am worried about being obsessed. The kind of obsessed wherein I start dreaming in wiki mark-up.

I'm creating a wiki account. I've been meaning to anyway.

So... the wiki pages for the characters (Lisset, Ototo, Warin, Per, Porfino, Townes, etc.) from the Last Royal Mistress all desperately need updating. Per doesn't even have his own page yet, and he's one of the kings of Tremont! (Royalty without even a wiki stub to his name - gasp!)

And. If you think that's bad, the state of the Obbys' pages are (damnit, lost the word I was going to put there because I was fussing over the stupid apostrophe...) terrible.

... are current up to book 3 chapter 15, unless someone else has done any work since then (which kinda explains the lack of Per - it wasn't clear at this point whether he would actually get to be king). And yes, the regular cast (Royal family, Keep staff, Lovers' Temple staff, Brinnid) are probably also in dire need of updating, for much the same reason.

As I said, I'll do the rest of book three (plus the bonus stories written since b3ch15 got published) sometime during the hiatus/summer, but if someone else has time before that, don't let me, or anything else, stop you.
