Re: FFR Wiki
 
Question for you guys leading the wiki: do you have complete access? if not let me know and i can do that for you

Re: FFR Wiki
 
The only thing I can't do is to assign new admins and mods (only a bureaucrat can do that). Other than that, there's nothing I can't access.

I've been considering making a video tutorial in regards to charting concepts for FFR, but I never really had a good reason to make one. I'd totally be up for it as long as other people wouldn't mind watching it (the last thing that I want is for people to think that I'm doing it because I'm a know-it-all when it comes to charting).

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Been working on a few articles in the last days, mainly the 10th Official Tournament and the FFR PvE Tournament (I will use the same structure for upcoming user tournaments and add them as soon as they end). I'll probably track TWG threads in the near future.

The staff members page have been moved to user titles and reflect what was written by foxfire in the FAQ. I might have missed a couple of simfile judges because they aren't listed anywhere to my knowledge.

Also, I've added basic information of many FFR users. (A to H) I added only specific information that can be found in your profile or in the FFR forums. I plan to add more players but that's very low on my to-do list. If you want to add your own page, you can copy the user infobox.

Oh wow, that's cool.

I'll have to fill in information on the files later, I've neglected it for a while mainly because it's rather repetitive

There was a good two months during the summer with no SOTW so there's 14 songs missing before the start of the 10th tournament. (I added a few just about now)

Also, it's not directly related to the wiki, but there are songs in the ffr song list that don't have external links since october 2013, I can make it a priority and provides pertinent links if an admin asks.

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Some really important structural changes and a general clean-up took place today. It is now possible to browse every page of the wiki from the front page or using this page. The portals were converted to categories and the maintenance has been reshaped and completed. (this took longer than expected)

The wiki is still in dire need of writers and researchers so every little contribution you can do will help improve it. ;)

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Heyo, I've been inactive on FFR lately but I'm absolutely up to the task of buffing up the wiki's contents. :)

Re: FFR Wiki
 
As the FFR Wiki is now an official resource, it is important to recognize its staff members and active content creators for their hard work in the community.

The "FFR Wiki Staff" usergroup has been founded by noname219, Netjet!, EzExZeRo7497 and gold stinger. Noname219 will be responsible for managing the team.

Keep up the great work guys, and good luck!

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Planned on getting more involved into this now since there are templates for stuff. I remember trying to do this from scratch and was thinking there was no possible way. Gonna start filling out the stubs for songs because that's gonna take a ton of time to do.

Wanna get started on the more newer songs that were being released as of late. Already did a couple for the first 4 or so songs ever released to FFR as a warmup & example. Let me know if you want other stuff added to song page stubs.

Re: FFR Wiki
 
So, I'll be busy with school this week but I'll communicate my plans and the components we should be priorizing in the next few days.
In the meantime, you guys can propose features that could be useful for FFR that we can integrate in the wiki. I'll add them to the bunch I have in mind.

I'm also adressing this to all users : if you want to help, and don't know where to start, you can check the Maintenace page or you can go ahead and start/improve an article. ;)

@gold stinger : I've skimmed through and it looks pretty good so far. If you link users, use internal links. Oh and imo, references aren't really necessary if they are already linked in the infobox.

gold stinger 11-5-2014 07:20 PM

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Forgot that you're working on implementing the entire profile database into the FFR Wiki. Will make sure to use internal links.

noname219 11-7-2014 03:56 PM

Re: FFR Wiki
 
I will add all the following information in the op a bit later. Here's the next "steps" and some objectives I want to achieve in the upcoming months. This is, of course, not set in stone and any tasks below can be modified or added/removed from the list. The pourcentage is an estimate of the progress made for that task.

The goal of the wiki is to provide a useful and easy to access database of information concerning FFR. Hopefully, it should be the ressource of information to check if someone has a question related to the game. While it's technically on another domain, it should feel like it's part of FFR.

GENERAL RULES
- They are the same than on FFR : no offensive content, no disrespect towards other people, etc. Wikia has also community guidelines that we should follow.
- A very important point I want to make is to respect private information of other users. Everything that's been posted by the user himself on FFR solely can be added on his profile. Also, if a user doesn't want to display certain information concerning himself, we should fulfill his request.
- Try to keep an impartial view of the subject you're working on. Reference as much as possible.

CRITICAL TASKS
[0%] [open to everyone + Noname219] General guidelines for content creators (some tips I found to be more efficient when editing the wiki, how to use wikicode correctlym useful links, etc. Planning to put that content somewhere, probably in the maintenance section. Everyone can submit their tips too.)
[--] [open to everyone + Noname219 + Eze] Maintenance & News (That means, all current events must at least be referenced in the news section that I'm currently keeping up to date. We should ensure a minimum of coverage concerning current happenings of the website. That also means all recent songs missing should be added, which is why I added Eze to that task since he already knows where and how to add those songs. Also dead redirects, double redirects, wanted pages to check from time to time)
[0%] [Noname219] Integration of Song Corrections Thread and Musical Genres Revamp into the wiki. (I want to make my song research more accessible to users, so they can add their own input. Atm, I'm less preoccupied by the genres revamp, but it's something I want to make progress on.)

IMPORTANT TASKS
[10%] [open to everyone + Noname219] Musician pages to expand (basic infos+links) (Currently making this. The link section is intimidating for anyonye, but I couldn't found any easy solution. I'm planning to review all the profiles myself but anyone can hop on to help.)
[1%] [open to everyone + gold stinger] Song pages to expand (tips/tricks, background info, reception, etc. The information in the infobox will be modified when I successfully integrate the song corrections thread research. @ goldstinger : if you're interested about expanding the songs page, avoid using the 2nd subject "you", "your", etc. Other than that, you can do what you want.)
[5%] [open to everyone] Important pages to create/modify (engines, history of the website, community, terminology, etc. Some of them are listed in the portals but many more can be added.)

NEXT STEPS
[0%] [open to everyone] Permission screenshots to add (if we can find them)
[0%] [open to everyone] Cloning pertinent information from the forum (stuff that could be useful on the wiki such as the stickies)
[1%] [open to everyone] The Werewolf Games + Tournaments (this takes a while and isn't that of a necessity, but it would make the user pages more complete and pertinent)

STUFF THAT IS MOSTLY DONE BUT IS CONSTANTLY EXPANDING
- Music genres db
- Permissions
- Staff/user titles
- Locations db
- Browsing the wiki using categories and portals

Re: FFR Wiki
 
From the look of that wall of text, I'm assuming you're gonna try and start work on integration of the song corrections thread & musical genres revamp. That's cool.

I'm gonna be working on covering the stubs & info for newly released songs, see what I can get in there so that it doesn't look so bare if people are looking up newest songs being added. will tend myself to other sections when I got the free time.

EzExZeRo7497 11-7-2014 08:22 PM

Re: FFR Wiki
 
I'm generally done with adding songs into the wiki, I'm missing 6 songs so it should be trivial. I'll probably try to fill up information regarding the songs themselves though, I recognise a good portion of them.

Website is slow for me but I'll try to respond anyway :

My next step really would be to expand the musician pages. Then, once I can get an interest from Crazyjayde, we'll be working on the song corrections research and integrate all that into the wiki (in some ways). At the same time, I'll continue referencing present events in the news.

Good to know. :)

Re: FFR Wiki
 
I've added all the artist permissions we've got from May 2014 to today. (example : http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/Jonathan_Coulton) I will (hopefully) add all the older ones I can find. If there's any new permission, they will be tracked too. [task was added to the first post] You can skim through them using this category.

edit : oh yeah I forgot to update the op using post 154...
edit2 : done
edit3 : as a sidenote, I will add FFR users ONLY IF they have 5 mentions minimum internally on the wiki. However, anyone can create his/her own page even if you're not cited anywhere.

Re: FFR Wiki
 
We're the 3rd most active gaming wikia in december so far!

...

I've pimped the top navigation bar and added a Help tab for an easy access to some useful pages. Also, we're close to having 3,500 pages total and November saw 1,400 modifications (best month since March).

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Since it's kind of topical: what about adding forum awards results?

noname219 12-27-2014 12:35 PM

Re: FFR Wiki
 
It's definitely something to be added in the wiki. I'll try to search for past nominees as well.
