2009-01-08 [Artsieladie]: How about some wikis that point people to their belief interests, their animal interests, links to/for contests for writing, photography, art, like Competitions and MC. I think The Wiki's Wiki Page should absolutely be listed here.
I know this isn't made for new Elftowners, but I do think new Elftowners could also help with this, because they can give an insight, perspective of what would be useful to know about and/or what they would like to be able to find out about. [LynnAnneBrown] might be particularly helpful here and she would probably be more than glad to.
*still thinking though* :)
2009-01-08 [moira hawthorne]: once new people get interested in contests... they want refer photos or how to tutorials... listing them here as a way fror them to find easily or older members to direct them to would be helpful...
2009-01-08 [Hedda]: But that is general advice to all newcomers. Very important, but now what this page is about.
The HOWTOs and tutorials needed some more organizing the last time I looked at them, but I think there is something... I'll go to bed now though.
2009-01-08 [Hedda]: Oh, thanks [Jitter]! I didn't find Elftown tutorials when I needed it before (See my comment there). That's a great set of pages where we can point new members who seem to be interested in one of the subjects there. (Or actually have made pages for it.)
2009-01-08 [Jitter]: You're welcome :D
I only added stuff I would be interested in <.< if I find more I'll let you know :)
2009-01-17 [Hedda]: Problem: What to say to people who are very much into anime and manga?
2009-01-18 [Thunder Cid]: Perhaps a person or team could assemble a page indexing the known and popular anime and manga wikis?
2009-01-18 [Hedda]: Or perhaps there is already such a page...
2009-01-19 [Artsieladie]: Ok, I just had a totally random thought. Would it be a good idea to have a link to The Wiki's Wiki Page on Mainstreet in the same vicinity as Text Adventures and MC? Just a thought.. :P
2009-01-19 [Hedda]: I might be wrong, but I don't think that will be helpful for people looking at the Mainstreet for the first times. It's linked to from the top of the index page so putting a link on Mainstreet too is spammish.
But Anime Wiki was the page I was asking about.
2009-01-19 [Artsieladie]: Ok, it was just a thought at the moment. It just seemed like a good tool to plug a bit more so more people are aware of it and will make use of it. -shrug-
2009-01-19 [Hedda]: What you often miss is that we mustn't have all information everywhere, because then it becomes a mess.
Only the things that are highly interesting should be on Mainstreet. We don't want people who are looking at what's up on Elftown (Mainstreet) to see a huge directory of 95% inactive crap wiki-pages.
2009-01-19 [Artsieladie]: Well, we don't want a mess! ;)
a huge directory of 95% inactive crap wiki-pages
?? Didn't I suggest the 'link' to? Or am I misunderstandi
Eh, no biggy. It was just a suggestion, idea. Nothing more, nothing less. :)
2009-01-19 [Hedda]: I know that you talked about a link and the link goes to a big pile of rubbish (with some great stuff here and there).
2009-01-20 [Artsieladie]: a big pile of rubbish
lol Well, I'm glad that I haven't requested for mine to be listed there, then. ;)
Hey, wow! You implemented that little drop down announcement thingy of 'wikis of interest' from Mainstreet's Calendar already!!! Awesome!
2009-01-20 [Hedda]: "I'm glad that I haven't requested for mine to be listed there"
You should of course raze the quality by submitting it.
2009-01-20 [Artsieladie]: Aw, Hedda! Gee, thanks, it's nice to know I have something of quality to submit.
2009-01-23 [Hedda]: Oups, I mean "raise"!
2009-01-30 [Viking]: n00bs should probably read my diary, too.
