Subforum for the wiki

Postby Erk » Thu May 07, 2009 7:29 pm

It's hard to say, but I think the decentralised nature of the wiki makes it hard to design specific guidelines and talk to people as a whole. Having a subforum for it would make it easier to organise everything and talk as a group.
Rumours of my croaking have been greatly exaggerated.

That's what "Talk" pages [the Discussion tab on this wiki] are for. ;P

However, there is no page for general discussions on what to do with the wiki.

A forum would help with that, as talk pages are spread all over the place.

Amen to that. If someone posts a message on my user talk page, I get a new message warning. If I respond on my own talk page, the person I replied to doesn't necessarily see that I answered unless I post on their talk page. so you end up seeing half conversations spread everywhere with very little cohesiveness.

It's a bit headache-inducing... *casts Ephedra*

Well, on Bulbapedia at least, its considered common courtesy to watch talk pages you comment on. It's also banable to boop and moan about not getting a reply when it's kept on the page the comment was placed and you don't see it.
Oh how I wish I could be a tool.

Alas, I mere middle schooler am I, and the resources I lack to pay the fee.

Boop the economy, by the way.

A tool in spirit, I suppose.
