New contributor to the wiki, in the process of touching some things up. Discovered we've got two categories that seem to serve the same purpose. They aren't distinguishing between Star Wars and Sky Jacks (Though I think that might be a useful group of categories). Can we just delete one of the two?

I've written a blog abut engaging with creators ! Please read it!
I've created a first draft for community guidelines for the wiki. Please read throug them and come with feedback.
Just found out how to link to the star wars wiki. A great example is on Campaign Episode 45.
Is there a way to make the Featured Games Page alphabetized, like the Performers page is? If you know how or figure it out, would you teach me? Thanks!
I wish the template for One Shot had an option to post the last chronological episode, like the Campaign template does. So far, there are two series which would be immensely improved by this feature, which would tie together both sets of Inspector Jackie Can't Catch A Break adventures, and the two Crazy Partiers sets of adventures. I put links in the text to the left, but it would be so much more efficient to have that as an option in the box. Can this be done?
I've been playing around with the bot and noticed it has some maintenance options like fixing double redirects. I tried it but it errors out on the tryst entries which look like they're bugged out. They appear to already be fixed but they are still listed there for some reason.
I don't know if an admin needs to take a look at it or what, but if someone can help me figure this out that would be great.
We could get a bot account that automatically adds new episodes as they come out,wich would ensure that new episodes are added timely and unaffected by the editors workflow. Good alround. Wikias rules states that the community needs to be in agreement over this though, so if you read this, give it kudos and post a hearty "aye" and I can get this sorted in no time!
So you want to help with the wiki? Great, there's a lot of episodes, characters, performers, NPC's and gags that need their own page, and lots of pages need editing, so your help is needed and appreciated. This post is meant to get you started, and fill you in on how you best can help.
First of all, it's always good to have the Template Guide open in a different tab
Episodes: If you look at the main pages for the shows, you'll see that a lot of the episode links are red. Click on a red link you'd like to add an episode for, and you'll be prompted to create a new page. This page will have a pre generated name. Please do not change the name or create episode pages by your self, follow a red link, and they will automatically be named and linked correctly. Then you check out how to add our neat infoboxes from the Template Guide and add the info.
Throw in the official synopsis and a link to the episode and we have a page!
There's still a lot that could be added to it. A more detailed summary, list of NPC's, gags, bits, continuity stuff. Add as much as you want, and try and make it look as streamlined with the other pages as possible.
NOTE: On some pages, running gags are under the headline "Goofs". They should be called "Bits " since that is what they use on the show
Characters: Whether you create this one from scratch or generate it from a red link isn't as important, make sure the spelling is correct and the links should work. Again, check out the Template Guide for the infobox appropriate for the character, add in a description and boom. New character page. Again, check out how other pages look and try and match it.
Other Pages: There's a lot of strange jokes and other things that you might want to have it's own page. Write it! Try and make it as close to similar pages as you can, but the important part is that you write.
Pictures and other media: I've been adamant in insisting that we get express permission for all art we put up on the site. I've been tracking down as much fan-art as I can, asked permission and uploaded it with credit. So if a particular piece of art isn't in the gallery , there's a good chance I've got it in a folder and am waiting to hear back from the artist. If you want to, feel free to track down the artist and ask yourself, and upload it with a credit in the description. Be sure to check “copyrighted and uploaded with permission” before uploading it. But frankly, you're probably better of sending me the image and I'll add it to my list. If you are the artist you can of course upload it yourself, but make sure and make it clear that it's your own work so I don't think it's been uploaded without permission and remove it.
If you use some of the uploaded art on a page, use at least one of the credits under the image.
If you want to use some official art from one of the featured games, you can upload it with credit under fair use.
Hey eveyone, I am absolutely loving the wiki! There is some amazing work that has gon in to it so far. The folks working on the bounty hunter names and cataloging episodes are amazing.
One thing that is kind of confusing me is the use of the word "goof" to describe the bits we do on Campaign.
I totally understand the need for a word to describe nthat stuff, I just kinda think that word should be "bits." It's the word that we use on the air and the word all the ONE SHOT folks use off mic too.
If there is areason we should be saying "goofs" that I guess I am open to it. Honestly though I kinda love "bits."
We had kinda talked about having R2-D20-bot renaming all of the One Shot episode pages from things like 'Episode Twelve' to 'Episode 12'. I just had him rename all of the Critical Success episodes, since they were named like garbage before, and everything went smoothly.
I can put him to work on the One Shot episodes but I want to make sure we want to do this before he goes changing every thing.
The main issues with this are possibly adding a bunch of double redirects, which R2D20-bot cant fix because of a bug with all the Tryst redirects, and spamming everyones email with page has been changed emails that the 27 emails I just got for Critical Success would attest to.
Should we include sound bites in the plot summaries? If so, does anyone know how to do it? What makes me ask this is one I've heard other people post on other places, from Episode 20. I've transcribed it and made a notation of where to find it, but I thought it might be awesome to put a "Listen" thing there, like the one that directs to Kat's explanation of KAT.
Please chime in! I'm still not sure just how detailed and revealing the plot summaries should be. Tell all? Hints? Great reminders?
Okay so Troig (the two headed dudes) have made quite a few appearances in Campaign (noteably Framboise and ??? & Johnny Appleseed and George Lucas). The question is, how do we make pages for them? Do the heads share a page, get their own pages, or both? Do we even have a name for Framboise's other head? How do we write the names of the combined body?
A couple questions about how we should change the wiki once the Evil Campaign starts being released.
1. Should it be it's own page/catagory or should it stay under the Campaign umbrella?
1a. If we do classify them as Campaign episodes, how do we chronologically catagorize the episodes that happen at the same time as "good" campaign episodes?
2. How do we catagorize characters that are NPCs in one podcast, but are PCs in the other?
I'm trying to create pages for the various RPGs featured in One Shot here, and then have a pgae for each RPG with info on the system, where to get it and the episodes that feature it like I've done here. I'm also creating a page for each series, with links to the episodes and the systems featured on it like I've done here. Since a lot of the series are named after the system, I've put "Series:" before an entry to indicate that it refers to the sreies of episodes rather than the system. This however has created another problem, when searching, the sries doesn't show up unless I start with Series. Infact, searching for a single word in the title doesn't even retrun the page a result in the search results. So when we have a seires that have it's own name, like "Inspector Jackie Can't Catch a Break" searching for "Inspector Jackie" doesn't even suggest the right page as an option. Any suggestions as what to do to make the series pages searchable?
I've been checking the task list for things you can do to improve your wiki. One of the things you cad do is add a chat. It's in prototype so no guarantee it'll work perfectly. Is this a fature we'd want?
I love this list! Not sure how to edit the cell boxes, but I think that all of the quotes attributed to Johnny O'Mara should be changed to Leenik, since Bacta is also quoted.
Should Raptorn be Rap Torn (probably related to Rip Torn)?
Is it Tuam or Twom?
Is it Untrustworthy Doug?
Should both Flip Flop and Flipflop be there?
Also, the box on Episode 45 says "44". And I don't know how to change it!
There is a box that I don't know how to edit. Dr. Kobral should be changed to Dr. Kabral. If you fix this and want to teach me how, I will appreciate it!
