Wiki started Friday, April 4. Open for editing Monday, April 6.

Some users reporting confirmation errors related to email characters, but registration is working.

Panel by panel archive for Book 1 completed. Woo!

Well, kinda. The structure of all the pages is in place; the actual panel transcriptions and descriptions are entered up to page 115 (at this writing). At this pace, I figure it'll be done in a week or so.SteveMB 00:33, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Faster now that you're helping again. I was wondering... Yeah, Rob, the text is only 2/3rds done, and then I think we have to go back to the start and re-format a bunch. There were some changes to the way we did things part way in, and those need to be retroactively added. --Kreistor 00:51, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Engineering Maxim: First make it work (i.e. get the basic information in); then make it pretty (i.e. hash out the formatting and such).SteveMB 01:48, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
We're down to the last handful of pages; then it's just a matter of cleanup, format tweaking, and adding notes (over time, I think that the wiki page/panel views will grow what amounts to a full-fledged concordance of pop-culture references, etc). SteveMB 14:32, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
And adding noinclude-subpages -to every panel's description and dialogue. But yeah, now we can talk about formatting, yay... like how the dialogue should be put together, and whether notes should be kept on panel, page, or both... Commander I. Heartly Noah June 3 2009
I've put a proposed format style guide on my user talk page. SteveMB 20:01, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
I've been making a second pass through (up to about page 30). I wrote an EditPad macro to do a few standard things (add the <noinclude>{{subpage}}</noinclude> linkback, add canonical-name links for some of the main characters) that constitute about 90% of the job, so it goes pretty fast when I have an odd moment to get through a few more pages.

Are we going to have a page for this new Summer Update? Linked from TBFGK 150? What will it be called? How does that get set up? Commander I. Heartly Noah June 4 2009

The Summer Updates should probably have their own template setup (probably a simplified version of the Pager template, since there aren't any individual panels -- just one image, a description, and the text). I'm not familiar enough with wiki templates to set something like that up myself. SteveMB 18:41, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
