2007-01-24 [Suzu]: i may have to watch this wiki now as repayment :)
2007-01-26 [xido]: Angel, I am going to switch the graphics back to code, so that they can be copied from the page without editing, in case we need to later. The colored bullet will still appear on top, but we want to show the tag for it too, just in case.
A simple 1-2 sentence statement about what a creature is, or a simple bit of info without a reference is the smallest form of content (Description - Minor). That excludes no content (like bane, which was edited to show this).
A post with anything more than 2-3 paragraphs and/or a reference to a resource used for the info would be an average-to-maj
2007-01-26 [xido]: Another quick tip:
Any of the types of 'Sidhe' (pronounced "shee"), a type of faerie race, should be cut and posted after Sidhe, as a subtype, and perhaps listed on that page as different races. Sidhe are typically neutral or good-aligned fae races, where Unsidhe are more often more chaotic or evil-aligned. But that is D&D (Wizards) / Changeling (White Wolf) info...
2007-01-28 [Linn Scarlett]: also, xido, i mean to dig out the gold and muck of elvenkind <---meaning that I plan to create extended pages for the different kinds of elves, linked from the Elves page. If you are ok with it ofcourse. I lately bought the Kinslayerwars, aswell as Realms of the Elves and Elves of Fearun, so yeah XD I need to read those and then I can set myself lose if it's ok with you
2007-01-30 [Linn Scarlett]: Nwah I was just confused by the 'minor/average
2007-02-03 [xido]: As for the 'average', it is: 2-3 paragraphs with one reference, and gets a 'minor bullet (non-ECM). It would also get a 'minor bullet' if it had any thing less (like a one-liner 'Description'), or say like one small paragraph and a single pic.
3-4 paragraphs, 2-3 paragraphs with a pic, 2-3 paragraphs and a few references, or multiple pics constitutes a 'Moderate-to-M
More sensible? :D
2007-02-04 [xido]: And are all of those pages now formatted with:
Body of Content
Back to the [Creature_List@wiki] / [The Creature List@wiki]
The last thing we need to do is make sure that all pages can be commented on by net viewers (but not edited by them - Elftown members ONLY should contribute), add adequate keywords to each page (copy-paste keywords from Creature List Format, and add the creature's name(s) and where it is from - culture/story/
Then, when that is all finished for each page (Angel should be the owner of all pages), and they are all formatted, we will take the other list away (from Creature_List, and leave the links up for it to here.
2007-02-04 [Angel Dreamer]: Yeah, I've been adding author's names where I could along with the other keywords.
2007-02-05 [xido]: Great! And we are so close to being finished! Great job to you both, and I can't wait to see what kind of ripples this will make in Elftown's fantasy-loving populace... ;)
When all the bullets are up, I will take the other list off Creature_List, and this one will be our full and final list to work with... Plus, it will be easier to moderate in many ways.
2007-02-08 [xido]: All letters have been reviewed for content. Letters without bullets have no content at all. Creatures with !!! are improper pages.
Format still needs to be done:
- No passwords
- Owner: [Angel Dreamer]
- Keywords: Creature List Format
- Add "Back to the [Creature_List@wiki] / [The Creature List@wiki]"
I am removing the creatures from the other page now. This page is the official list, and should be moderated as such. Angel and Linn, do you want comments to be posted on T C L, C_L, or both? I can take comments off of either, depending on which page you'd rather watch for them on.... ;)
2007-02-12 [SilverFire]: same thing, just alternate spellings.
2007-02-14 [Linn Scarlett]: Nah Liche and Lich is the same as far as I know ^_^ like magic and magick :/
2007-03-04 [Lady of Lore]: Mordicant to come soon
2007-03-04 [Linn Scarlett]: hm I see we don't have winter wolves
2007-03-06 [Veltzeh]: I see someone's misspelled "phoenix"... great.
2007-03-06 [Linn Scarlett]: Does it matter XD Everybody spells it phoenix/pheoni
so reaaly :P
