2007-01-20 [xido]: Feel free to throw away at any time. You will not mess me up - I am ready for anything. ;) Thanks for the comment on it, though. The more we can communicate it out, the better, I think.
2007-01-20 [xido]: I think I have an idea: what if we feature the rules for adding on your page (like a welcome page for viewers), and the full list on here, and I can make the links work all together to use the info posted on this page, and free up a little room here too. ;)
More to come....
2007-01-20 [iippo]: The simplest solution would be to use one word as the wiki's name ("creatures" or somesuch), while you could still use the banners that have "the Creature List" on them.
2007-01-20 [xido]: I THINK I know what you are saying, but could you give an example, for it to be clear?
Also, it is always an irritant for me to see a banner that does not use the actual name of the wiki in it.... This is most likely Obsessive-Comp
2007-01-20 [iippo]: There are many wikis that are called "Something Very Long and Complicated", but the actual name of the page they use is "SVLAC" -- using an easy-to-rememb
The only time it irks me is when people have a wiki banner in their house that doesn't have the correct wikiname in it, especially if they have forgotten to link to the wiki itself.
2007-01-21 [Angel Dreamer]: samodiva added. I like the idea of a welcome page for the exported link (if that's what you're saying), especially since the url is easier to remember and type. A third move to a new page simply to make the name easier doesn't sound very appealing.
2007-01-21 [Angel Dreamer]: Oh, and xido: I haven't figured out how to do the keywords and such for the searches, so the samodiva kinda lacks those...
2007-01-22 [xido]: Alright, iippo, thanks for the input. I see what you mean. I agree with the OCD on the banner with the incorrect name. That would be my biggest grief with using another new name for the page.
To Angel: I agree, and I think you will like the final result of the pages. When it is completed, the current C_L will be for rules, info, and a A-Z links, and this page will house the full list of creatures, which will be where the viewer is sent after clicking on the letter-links. On this page, a full list of creatures will be long, and on the other, we can use it for rules instead of taking up space for them here. ;) I think you will enjoy it.
Keywords are simply words that relate to the CL and Creature Pages. See Creature List Format for keywords, and make sure they are separated by a space, with each Creature Page also getting the name of the creature (or wikipage name, if different). More to come. ;)
2007-01-22 [xido]: All A-B Creature Pages have been checked and formatted. The first three 'A' Creatures also have appropriate keywords:
the creatures list creature_list fantasy monsters beasties critters of mythology legendary fiction Elftown's wiki "Name of Creature" "Where from/what kind"
2007-01-22 [Linn Scarlett]: so, what are the jobs and hand? how does the color system work? any uniformication etc?
2007-01-23 [xido]: To Linn: The color system? You mean the color bullets?
See Creature List Format for those bullets, and what they mean. That will be posted here too.
I'm not sure what you mean with 'jobs and hand'.... Check with Angel to see what you can specifically do to help her. If you would like to format Creature Pages, add keywords (as listed), add "Back to Creature_List / The Creature List" and check which pages have content and how much (only Pegasus has been featured on the Elftown Creature Marathon - purple bullet).
2007-01-23 [xido]: Keywords:
the creatures list creature_list fantasy monsters beasties critters of mythology legendary fiction Elftown's wiki
aeon Gnostic Final Fantasy Qabala
Wraeththu Storm Contantine
(anarch) Anarchic D&D Outside the Realms of Existence Extraplanar Planes
Other Myths include:
Keywords for aboleth to anarch DONE
2007-01-23 [Linn Scarlett]: What I also wanted to ask: what is the differance between 'minor to average' and 'major to average' content?
2007-01-24 [Suzu]: i may have to watch this wiki now as repayment :)
