The Great Dragon War Wiki!

Post by BlanchPrez » Thu Feb 02, 2006 2:57 pm

So, I got inspiried to try and get this going again. To that end, I've created a Wiki for the history we've created. There's nothing there right now, but I figured you guys might be interested.

Okay, so here's how this works. When you log in, use the name of the historian that is writing the entry under Your Name. Then enter your real email address. The password for the wiki is 'karm.'

Then, you can go ahead and edit things. I suggest playing around with the SandBox first. Remember, only edit the entries you've posted for now. (And if you want to, you can edit the front page)

Cool idea, make it easier for us to keep track of the entries without searching tons of threads.

Created the Index on the front page. It should cover all of our existing entries, and all the phantom entries which were in our phantom entries list. When you add your existing entries, make sure your citations are included in the index. To add the entry for an item already in the index, just click on the red link and login - it should auto-create that entry for you. If you create a new citation, be sure to edit the index page to include the new citation.

Ill finish updating my existing entries sometime tomorrow.

And Chris, in the Sidebar I would suggest including a list of the known contributors (The Alias's) which link to a search for entries by that name. For instance, one of the common ones I use is Tarin the Red, so if you put in http://greatdragonwar.pbwiki.com/FindPage?SearchFor=Tarin+the+Red with the link text Tarin the Red it will be a quick way to search for all my entries (using that name at least)
Its never too early to be a bastard!

Thanks man. I was planning on finishing the ToC when I got back into work this morning (I leave early, which is why it wasn't finished). And that's a great idea for teh sidebar. I was also thinking of including pages that discuss the rules of Lexigon and our game in particular.

Okay, so, I've added all my up to date entries. I've also added all of Lowly Uhlan's entries, as he's no longer here. Next up is BreakfastOfChampions for the same reason.

Also, it appears that someone named Oaklock Guilderleaf edited our front page, but I have no idea who that is. Anyone got any ideas?

That's cool, we're allways looking for more historians! :)

Here's the thing, though. You added an entry that didn't exist on the phantom entry list before. No biggy, I'm not going to remove it or anything. Take a look at the rules thread, go through some of the older threads in this fourm to see what people have already written, etc.

And welcome aboard!

OH, sorry about that I read the rules, but got a little overwhelmed, i thought you had to add a new entry for a new letter, since there were no active 'I' entries, I added one for my writeup, and referenced one exsisting and two new phantoem ones.

Is this not the rigth way to do it? I am sure I missed something in the rules :)

Close. We try to use the phantom entries up first before adding a new entry. Otherwise, yeah, you're pretty much right. Like I said, I'm not going to remove it, it's cool. Just for future reference. :)

Use the Phantom Entry thread to call dibs on future entries.

Are you guys still interested? If not, do you want to add your entires, or should I?

Since no one has replied to this, I'm just going to add their stuff to the site, so we're at least caught up.

In the mean time, everyone post what they want for I entries!
