Yes, it seems everyone has one, so it's not a bad idea.

Earthsong has a wiki, except it links to the dead What We Know page in the references section...

Updating it might be a good idea, but making an extra page might not work, since
Quote:
This article may not meet the notability guideline for fiction. If you are familiar with the subject matter, please expand or rewrite the article to establish its notability. The best way to address this concern is to reference published, third-party sources about the subject. If notability cannot be established, the article is more likely to be considered for redirection, merge or ultimately deletion, per Wikipedia:Guide to deletion.

According to Wiki admins, so adding another page would almost guarantee a merge...

As for the banners, I can totally try to get them back. I'm currently without a computer, so I need to rely on whenever a comvenient computer is nearby. Hopefully i can reinstall Vista so that I can get back onto the forum regularly. I backed up my entire C drive, though, so no worries; they're not lost or anything. I'll work on getting some updated ones.

Looks like Tin's already started a Writer's Group of sorts, and all of the emotes are on Commi's devart. Toss in a WWK thread, and we're good to go. Smile

No, not a wikipedia page; I was suggesting a completely independent wiki devoted entirely to ES.

I mean this in the nicest way... but most people seem to get a lot of the facts about Earthsong wrong. A user created wiki would be full of all kinds of misconceptions (understandably so! It's not the simplest universe ever created) so I'm not entirely sure that it'd be the best idea.

I put a lot of effort into the About page and I generally feel it's sufficient. I'm open to suggestions for it though.

If the forumers get to have at it for a few weeks before it's revealed to the public, I don't think a wiki would turn out that bad...

But whichever. It'd be something that would have to be maintained, and seems like it might be total overkill anyway.

I'm fine without a WWK, it just means we'll be answering some of the same questions over and over. ^_^ We don't really need it. I still think a wiki would be good, though. *shrug*

I think for now I'm just pleased as punch to have the forum back! A user generated wiki would be nice, but like the Lady said probably very inaccurate. And just one more thing, you know?

I'm just gleeful to be typing in the good 'ol earthsong forums once again!

I guess I can live without a WWK page, at least for a little while (I make no promises, I likes having reference material Smile ).

Maybe we can get a special mod installed? One that gives the following message -
"We apologise, but your post 'OMG Willow is Earthsongs Eve, why did no-one else guess?' could not be posted, because you are a stupid-head who did not read the 'About' page, or 'FAQ'. Please read both and try again. Seriously, read them. We're tracking your IP now, so we'll know if you don't. We're watching you...."

OK, maybe someone could word it slightly more diplomaticly if you really wanted... Wink
