PostSubject: Wiki Perspective   Wed 14 Oct 2009, 12:58 pm

Seeing as how I have a few ideas I'd like to get into the wiki I wanted just to raise the question of how it's to be used.

I'm presuming that the wiki is to be in typical encyclopedia style, that is, with dispassionate and neutral articles which convey factual truth and informed speculation.

The reason I wanted to check is simple: if the wiki does take that form it will contain information that players, their nations and fursona will not know (dark secrets, privileged knowledge and the like.) I don't want to post any of that, and possibly compromise story-lines and so on, until I know!

I'm not sure there's really any other option to be honest, since collaboration in creation and story-telling really requires a common knowledge base so that no player can complain that another has acted "unfairly".

Objectivity sticks indeed. My proposal is this: you mentioned informed speculation, so you could use that, saying whose analysts or theorists had presented what scenarios. This means out of a list of theories, one is the actual plot, but readers will never know, would they? Unless you disclose which scenario is the correct one. Only when a plot has taken its complete course, such info then could be included as history.

PostSubject: Change of Wiki platform   Thu 15 Oct 2009, 9:05 am

Wikia seems to have absolutely intrusive advertising. Wetpaint.com seems to be less of that, but the user interface is not very intuitive. Do you have suggestions of what other platforms we could use? I've done some search, none of my finds seem so good, except for wetpaint.com. Your thoughts?
