A Muppet Central wiki?

Discussion in 'Friends and Family' started by Hubert, Dec 3, 2012.

    If anyone's been watching the Muppet smilie thread, it somehow turned into a discussion about a potential wiki detailing Muppet Central lingo, past events and things of note so that members can find the info they need to guide them through their MC experience.

    Now there was a wiki through Wetpaint that was started about four years ago. However, we kinda feel like it might be a good idea to avoid meddling with that wiki from the past, but rather start something anew if we want to follow through with this.

    That's where this thread comes in. We want to hear some community feedback on this. Do you think this is a good idea? If we were to do this, through what site should that be? Wetpaint was used previously, but some are favoring using Wikia for this, which probably has better resources to facilitate us. This thread is basically just a thread to discuss the prospects of this idea. We encourage all suggestions, ideas, and criticisms.

    I think a muppet wiki would be AWESOME it would be great to have a place full of information old and new from muppet central I also think using wikia is a good idea but I am all in favour for a muppet central wiki :):D

    I have seen this coming for a while, and I think now would be a good time to start one. It would be a great place for new MC members to look, to get a hold of what goes on around these crazy forums!

    MC members should be able to write their own profile page too.

    Maybe the CCC could get a wiki page? *turns invisible and flees, not wanting to be smacked*

    I doubt you'd very likely get smacked, considering how at least three of the members who have been seriously thinking about this/bringing this up happen to be CCC members. :p

    But I also like the idea of people creating profile pages for themselves...might be a nice way to show off some extra stuff about them that they don't normally get to. And have a little fun.

    EDIT: Ziffeled. But we definitely should do muffins for wallpaper.

    I love the idea of a MC wiki. Like Muppetboy09 said, it would be helpful to new members.

    I love the idea. And as you were saying in the other thread, we could add all the custom Muppet smilies on a page. Sounds fun! :)

    Some time past it was suggested that there could be a wiki for MC fan works. The MLP fandom has one. It seems like something that could be a subsection of a MC wiki.

    As one of the folks who muffined the Smilie thread :oops:, I certainly think there should be one.
    Who should admin it?

    Probably someone who's familiar with how wikia works

    Or maybe ask Muppet Fan 123 to remake the wikia he started before?

    If we are going the Wikia route, we could have Mitchell remake it, or someone else could create it. We also could always have multiple admins for it if there's people who have a general understanding of Wikia and also are interested in it.

    Right now I'm seeing that the general consensus does seem to be Wikia, which I think might work out pretty well. They seem to have the resources to fit what we want, plus things could be kept very organized through there.

    That might always be a definite possibility. On an MC wiki, there's a lot of different ways that we could keep a nice index/info of fan works on that.

    Hmm, I know there was an MC Dictionary thread here in the Friends & Families section with info on various MC-specific terms and phrases such as "ziffle" and the various abbreviated clubs/organizations.
    As far as setting up a new Wiki around MC, you'd also need someone knowledgeable on Muppet Central's history and the events that have transpired as part of the admin team.

    So, in other words, a MC moderator (Like you!) should probably be a part of MC wiki's admin team. :coy:

    Sounds very interesting! Anything to help MC grow I'm always for that!

    You called?
    I'll remake the Wikia page that I started to make a few months ago. The page was closed becuase there was no activity on there for a while.
    I'll let you all know when the page is up and running!

    The Wiki will also be a good place for new members to go when they see new terms and stuff that they don't understand like "muffin" and "ziffle". (I learned it the good old fashioned way,)

    Ed, if you have a Wikia account, let me know. I'll add you as a admin.

    (Wow, that was a long post)

    Darn, the domain muppetcentral.wikia.com is closed and for some reason can't be used again. I think it might have been filed as a spam wiki since no activity has been on it.

    I might have to make the page name Muppet-Central.wikia.com, if no one minds the hyphen.

    NEW EDIT: I just made the page, it's very plain and standard right now, but we'll have to work on it. I'll need admins there, Ed, if you have a Wikia account could I add you on? (We'll need a mod there too. ;))
    The page is http://muppet-central.wikia.com/wiki/Muppet_Central_Wiki

    Remember to put that hyphen in! Maybe if we make this big enough, we can ask Phillip to maybe put an icon on the main page to it.
