So after some discussing in the round table, I thought that one of the best ways to make a neat, categorized, and orderly database for our tangled web of characters, role plays, teams and whatnot, I'd go ahead and create a wiki.

http://comicvineroleplay.wikia.com/wiki/Comic_Vine_Roleplay_Wiki

But of course I can't hope to categorize a place as large as us, so I'm going to ask you all for your help in making an easily accessible way for us to get information concerning our community.

And yes, I'm aware of the irony of creating a wiki for a wiki.

@Vrakmul: Alright, So I'm writing my page, Do I Just copy paste my bio for now?

You can do that if you have permission. Obviously you get permission by default if you're copy pasting from yourself.

To be honest, I was kind of surprised that nobody thought of this before. Ah well, nothing we can't fix now!

Hmm..I could provide wiki templates (you know, with infoboxes and whatnot) for characters, items, races and such, if you like.

I think someone conceptualized it a while back, because animevice did it, but there was a lot of problems on who could do what, what goes on pages, and updates and stuff, people messing with other people.

Well, I hope my policies will help keep such shenanigans down to a minimum.

Oh thanks!

Also: Sidenote: Though trolls are rare on this part of the vine, I still think we shouldn't give them attention by giving them pages. Just a heads up for you all.

Have you thought of adding a timeline sort of page so that me & other newbies can find out the history?

Avatar image for der_kommandant

We could get on that if you want. It'd have to be a group thing since even I have huge gaps in my knowledge of vine history.

Here's a character template for people to use.  I'll put up an example character page in a few.

And here's my character's page.  The categories are added automatically to the page through the character template, based on how it's filled out.

Oh and remember, if you want your page protected so that not just every other guy can edit it, contact the admins, which would be me, Icarus, and Izaiah so far.

I like what I see so far. CV'ers have a notoriously short attention span, so best wishes in keeping it flourishing.

This is pretty cool. Although I don't think I'll be editing over there, if anyone thinks they can put up a page for my character and edit it then go for it, but ask me first.

You're already a mod so I think you'll have the sense of responsibility to not go nuts with the banhammer.

I'll find a tutorial for you, hold on.

Just put "Imagename.jpg" (or .png) under the "| Image = " field on the template, only without the quotes.

#43 Posted by Urbs (837 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe we could add alternate versions of characters (ex: 1602, Zombie Verse). though with why this was made, maybe that's not the best idea. Also, it could already be part of the template, and i just don't know.

Using the Transformers wiki as a guideline, Alternate versions of a character would indeed get their own page.

Izaiah would probably be more than willing to help, if you can't wait for him, I'd be more than happy to get you a template tutorial.
