When we got this forum software, one thing I really wanted was a wiki setup so people could write about stuff they think should be preserved for posterity. And we got it! But organization ahead of time is really important to me--it's easier to take the time to set it up correctly than to faff about afterward resetting everything to reflect a new organization. So this is kinda the tree I'm thinking about for the wiki; the bolds are portal categories, and underneath are sample pages that might go under those main categories. Standards: * Pictures of important stuff (ie, not flavor pics) are sourced, named, and have their own page with a writeup of what they are and where they're from (and appropriate copyright notices are observed). * Obviously, citations are given where needed, when something is asserted. * Snark is fine as long as there's no strawmanning. * Each portal has its own entry page with its contents and main sections. I have no idea how to do a random entry link or a link of the day but if the software lends itself to such a thing, that'd be cool. PORTALS: Forum culture Slang terms DIAGRAMS Mascots (Pallas Cats, B&B) Cult devotion object: Artor HUBBA HUBBA ZOOT ZOOT Favorite Books Why the Great Pan Died In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts Loftus' Why I am an Atheist Favorite Videos (w/sources, reviews) Evid3nc3: Why I'm No Longer a Christian Aron-Ra: Creationism Dover PBS documentary Your Inner Fish The Bible thing we're always talking about That Bible history archaeologist who is awesome x3 History Links (all of the subheadings here are portals themselves) Ancient/Biblical History -- those quotes we keep running about how early Christians were assholes -- standing stones Roman/Classical History Medieval/Renaissance History Victorian-ish History Modern History Science Links Evolution Explanation of scientific method Abiogenesis NCSE, Bad Astronomy, TalkOrigins archives Counter-Apologetics Adverse Apologetica POCM Debunks of miracle claims Debunks of popular apologetics arguments Writeups of Christian preachers and other leaders Psychology of Belief Credible studies about prayer, glossolalia, etc Stuff We Wish We'd Known And cross-reference as needed, since there's a lot of overlap between all these topics. Since I've probably written blog posts about these topics, cross-referencing to the blog posts would be good (I can add those myself; the in-game blog engine has a really nice search engine to locate posts on the fly--much better than using the terrible search engine on the blog!). Photos: kept to 550ish pixels wide OR tall; bigger need to be hosted offsite. Obviously, all copyright requirements need to be observed--in written text and in pictures. I've been blogging with pictures for years so if you guys want a quick rundown of how to figure out if a picture is able to be used, I'm glad to give one. Diagrams and other documents that really need the added detail are exempt from the size request. I'd also like Wikipedia or other online public-domain materials to be noted as such and sourced so nobody gets pissy at us for copying anyone. Speaking of which: I'm open to a Diagrams Portal. If anybody here is familiar with wiki organization, feel free to speak up. This is my first time doing one of these and I'm not going to claim to be perfect at it.
