So, DwarfWiki, then. It’s been pretty much abandoned. Left to languish on a rarely-updated Observation Dome, and then shunted to the sidelines of the newly-relaunched G&T, fuck-all has been done on it recently.
Let’s fix that, shall we?
We reckon that what’s really needed to kickstart the whole thing is a bit of structure. So, whilst you can feel obviously free to contribute to what you like to the thing (after all, that is the point of a wiki), the focus for the next couple of weeks will be on The End – both the episode capsule, but also the various things mentioned in that show – characters, and other things in the Red Dwarf Universe. This also extends to first episodes of other shows – Laying The Foundations, Vile Vole Pie, Cadets, How The Band Got Together, and so on. After the two weeks, we’ll have a look and see where we are – it might be that we should go onto Future Echoes, and second episodes of other shows.
You’ll need to register for a DwarfWiki account (seperate to the account for the main site, I’m afraid) to participate – this was less to stop abuse, and more to stop the spam problems. If you’re contributing to a Wiki for the first time, then remember that the writing should be fairly formal, and be objective. The complete opposite to normal G&T writing, in other words.
(Incidentally, you’ll note that we changed the default skin of the wiki back to the standard MediaWiki one. This is partly because we’re very lazy and couldn’t be arsed doing a new template to fit in with the new G&T – but also, we reckoned that using the standard template made the thing more familiar to people, and so the thing would be updated more.)
If you have any problems or questions, then ask away here. Let’s try and bash this thing into some sort of shape again…
