Previously... (on the Big Character Wiki Update)
If you're not wiki confident - there is a guide on how to use it! Here!
We're trying to get all Character Wiki's up to date. If you can / would - please check your Character Wiki and then this thread and put any amendments / updates in it. We're working really hard, behind the scenes, to get all Character Wikis sorted (we've done A - J) but we need your help to identify issues. So please - let us know what is not correct / not there for your Character Wiki.
If you don't have a Character Wiki yet - please post to that thread with a link to your Player Secrets and your CS - we'll take it from there. If, over the next few weeks, you find that we're PMing you to ask for info - please be gentle. We are just trying to fill in gaps. If you're not sure whether you should post in the update thread, whether it's worth doing? Post it! I'd rather say "Nah, we don't need it" than have to say "I wish we had".
So - an update here.
1. We have done Round 1. This means that
a) all 169 Character Wikis have been checked, tidied up, and put in the correct "Categories" by myself and the Wiki Workers. We have checked the Categories are correct for the information that is already on the wiki
b) We created Racial categories and all pcs are now in the correct Racial Category (this will appear as "Eidisi PCs" at the very bottom of your wiki) - and on the wiki, you can have a look at all the other PCs of your race. This is a subcategory of the Race itself on the left hand menu so- find your race, click the little blue arrow, and it'll give you a place to go and look at all the others!
c) We've added in "PCs with Higher Education" as a Category, and this is now part of the PC Achievements stuff.
d) all the "click on this header for more information" formatting is gone. It was confusing and made the Table of Contents unusable.
e) I've created templates for staff to use when approving CSes and PSF tickets which should (I hope!) mean that Character Wikis are formatted in a more consistent manner going forward. They're in "Wiki Templates" if you want to look. It's a work in progress but all the new-pc stuff is done, and I'm working through a template or two a day.
2. We are now looking at PC Magic. There are 48 Character Wikis in the Category of "Mage PCs" and we're going through each one of them and tidying up how mutations are done. Each PC with magic will now have a link on their Character Wiki - under "Magic & Mutations" which links to a single page. That page will have all your PC mutations in one place.
3. After Magic, it'll be Renown, Skills, Inventions, Discoveries.
So, I'm going to ask again. Please check your Character Wiki and then this thread
and put any amendments / updates in it. We're working hard to get this done, but information and links really helps us. We are NOT ignoring it, we just want to get the whole "structure" in place, so we can then test putting existing pcs on the wiki using the new templates.
To be clear - one of the aims of this is to demonstrate some of the truly remarkable achievements of our PCs on this site. There are so many, and they could go un-noticed if we don't put them in the forefront. We have PCs doing big wars, massive plotlines, but that's not really what I mean. Those are great - but also I want the inventions, the discoveries, the pc who creates a magic technique by exploding (!), the invention of a new game, the person who was involved in this plot, did that, etc.
So - once we have all the skills / abilities / marks / etc stuff done - I'm going to be asking you to link stories for me. Not yet (we'd get overwhelmed, it's already a big job) - but something for you to think about.
As always - any questions, drop me a PM! I'm just going to end by giving a shout out to our Prophets, Peer Reviewers and Wiki Workers - the people who volunteer their time to make this site run. If you meet the requirements, consider applying. Just two reviews a week, or one hour of wiki work - those can and do make a difference. As a community, this place is great. Keep telling great stories, stay safe! Thanks! <3
