This is a page to collect remarks, discussions, complaints and bright-eyed idealism about what this wiki is, does, fails to do and/or should aspire to be. -Disso 09:35, 26 June 2006 (PDT)

Some discussions that are already ongoing:

  • I'm inclined to agree with some of Yves comments (here). I like the wiki partly because I like to use the transcripts to find episodes that I want to review, and also because I like to record information. The hero worship aspect doesn't interest me, although it doesn't really bother me either. I originally thought it might be useful for new viewers (especally furriners who might appreciate vocab and cultural references explained), but then I realized that most new viewers won't see the "new viewer information", nor will most of them be particularly interested in expending effort to find it. The Show will either capture them, or it won't. So, not counting the Fabuloso Friday sections, most of the rest of the Wiki is here for the pleasure of us wiki-nerds. --Sford 13:57, 26 June 2006 (PDT)
  • How do we get more people interested in the wiki, and is there an us vs. them problem? (here)
  • Out of interest, is there an "Introduce yourself" or something like it board, where people can say friendly greetings? It would make a wiki less intimidating, I think - Danetrix
  • Isn't part of the purpose for which we now use the wiki better served with a board? (here)
  • What is the "us vs. them" split? Yves 11:42, 26 June 2006 (PDT)
  • I think the wiki will grow organically on its own. I'm not one for rules and standards, but I do like it when things are organized and easy to read. I can help there. Yves 11:42, 26 June 2006 (PDT)

Of course, this being a wiki means that there's plenty of room for every kind of dry formal information, inspired awesomeness and cock jokes side by side. But some conversation about guidelines seems useful at this point, just so we can make a bit more clear to each other what every one of is thinks is going on here. please to inform me of charging too hard on this if applicable .

By the way: there's a board already on Ze's site, and there's also this board which seems somewhat inactive since the wiki took off. - Disso 11:47, 26 June 2006 (PDT)

I've started a klog here. I talk a bit about "if the wiki were a forum". What do you think? - Disso 06:41, 27 June 2006 (PDT)
