We has wiki

There is now a MeiLinWiki! It's almost completely blank. Go nuts.

I've never done any wiki stuff, so I dunno how to do anything!

Seriously, it's like falling off a stump. Smile

The characters link from the navigation bar up top seems to have been replaced by the wiki already, though most of the character pages have yet to be populated.

I was originally going to ask if it would be alright to start out with articles based on the character info page, and then I realised it was gone!

So far I've got pages for Temmin VI (our Temmin), Harsin IV (his dad), Sedra and Teacher among the characters. I've put stubs up whenever a character is mentioned on any page.

Would it be possible to change the user authentication for the wiki to use the one from the main site? I tend to forget that I have to login again when going from www.meilinmiranda.com to wiki.meilinmiranda.com...

But frankly, I'm not optimistic, nor is it a high priority. Right now I'm just trying to get the story out. Smile Having the wiki to refer to actually makes it easier for me to work on the story, but then, it takes time away from writing the story to make wiki! oy.

Are there any?

I'd personally like to start on that to ease navigation. Most wiki pages seems to be about characters, and the most obvious way to group them would be by book/time period, giving us currently three sub-categories for the Characters category: characters from around 160 KY (Two Kingdoms), 626 KY (Queen Who Ruled), and 990 KY (Temmin's time). Other categories are possible, but I can't think of any that I find as immediately useful.

There's also a small cluster around religious stuff: deities (category already done), religious offices, institutions and observances, with the latter overlapping a bit with the time keeping and calendar articles.

Thirdly, there's the geography, both physical (mountains, rivers, etc.) and political (cities, countries, etc.), but I'm not sure about how to structure the sub-categories there, possibly because there aren't that many articles about that topic.

So... thoughts?

I'll think on how to structure geography. Wikipedia will offer a useful guide on this subject, I think; if I recall correctly, they do it by region then country then province/state, drilling down like so. Physical geography is handled by region, I believe. I guess Sir and I should work on the map a little, huh? Smile
