About a month ago, I said to myself how awesome would it be to have a TSG Wiki. After talking with some people, the project began.

For this Wiki you will need a Wikispaces account to edit and post in the discussions page.

I would like to thank those who have helped immensely with this:
Rakuen, the1stpkmnfan, nmufred, Gwellin, and iHeart_Absol.

To find out how to join it to edit, there is a page Here (http://thespeedgamers-wiki.wikispaces.com/Join+in).

To be added as a member as it says, you could PM an Organizer, or post your username here.
Information that could be useful to add is such as some things during each marathon. (Baltes macing himself, Chase eating the worms, etc.)

If there are any questions/comments/suggestions, please post them here as well.

I am not sure how well this will "take off", but from the current responses that have come, I hope it will do well.
And if this is in the wrong area, I blame Gwellin. >_>

Thanks to all of the great members here,
Mega_Mario
(Yes, I know Wikispaces is not the most "functional" Wiki site there is, but it seems to fit the purpose the best.)

This seems awesome! I will be sure to think up of a couple of things to write up for TSG wiki space. This seems like an awesome project. I can't wait to see how everything turns out.

It's been going great so far, and glad I could help Mario. It'll be fun to keep editting and adding new things. :P

06-30-2009, 12:31 PM

Ok, and kmm:

Mega_Mario
06-30-2009, 12:40 PM
You could just post it here, but I already added you.
But I guess you could PM me, or one of the others.
EDIT: On the forums, that is.

Go right ahead and edit. Just keep it factual and follow the Editing Guidelines (http://thespeedgamers-wiki.wikispaces.com/Editing+Guidelines) as best as possible.

All edits are welcomed and appreciated.

06-30-2009, 02:52 PM
extremely tiring but i think i have a fairly good list of tsg meme's and stunts, i'll have to cross examine it with whats already on there to be sure everything is right and whats not really needed etc. etc. etc. @.@ x.X

I have been thinking about adding a feature somewhat like this. It may be awhile, though.

I thank all of you for you help and kind words.

Anybody who would like to join is welcome to. :)

Just use the link in my earlier post.

Rakuen
06-30-2009, 07:59 PM
Don't be afraid to edit either, even if you make a mistake it's easy for one of us organizers to fix it. :)

And fixing grammar is kind of a hobby of mine too. >_>

At any rate, I'm excited to see how this all goes! :D

Kmm. You fix that Mountain Dew Cereal page right now. I thought the idea up myself after reading this article (http://www.ideasbychuck.com/2008/08/doritos-cereal.html) a week before the marathon. (It was the perfect opportunity to do it, and get people to pay for me to do it.)

MSico
07-01-2009, 01:57 PM
I can't be bothered right now to find the exact part, but videos exist of the entire Metroid marathon, and I know positively that I had the idea in my head before the marathon started. Because it came from that article. Someone else suggested that I eat it out of the Hat, but the cereal with Mountain Dew was all me.

Yeah, we're gonna stay of Wikipedia for awhile. They just don't like us right now. So this Wiki is better, and other Wikis, like this, give off way better information than Wikipedia most of the time.

The meme area is great, but don't forget about other areas that could use some work, such as the podcast recaps and the marathons (notes and memes to add).

Things are coming together quite nicely.

kmmgreen5
07-02-2009, 04:13 PM

Mega_Mario
07-04-2009, 08:25 PM
Well, for bios, Wikispaces does not have the same capability as most Wikis when it comes to that, however, I think there would be a way to improvise.

For a bio for all members of the Wiki what type of information would be good for it. Go ahead and post some ideas. :)

kmmgreen5
07-04-2009, 09:04 PM
i say we make a template first and then add the special thing for each person we might have to ask the people what they like like the fav games and stuff like in the tsg bio's for example @.@

Mega_Mario
07-04-2009, 09:20 PM
^ Good plan, with the template/favourite games stuff.

We should also make sure we run the pages by the people in question if possible. We shouldn't put anything up that they don't want. Since it is about them. Or at the very least, exercise discretion. If you're not sure about something you want to add to somebody's page, either don't write it, or ask them first.
Actually, my idea was to have the person type it (using a template) and then save it. Then it would be protected to prevent anybody else from changing it. One thing though, is that Gwellin's online privacy topic should be followed.

Before a template is made, let's get some ideas of what to have in it...

My original ideas: (Copy and paste with any additions. The "**" are Wiki code.)
[spoiler:3ad1j50a]
**User name:** Their user name.

**Alias:** Other names that you may go by (such as if your chat, forum, and/or Wiki user name are different).

**Birthday:** Month, Day (should this be on here?)

**First marathon:** The first TSG marathon you watched. (Be sure to link to the marathon.)

**Favorite games:** A list of games that you enjoy.

**Quote:** Any quote(s) that you are known to say. Use quotation marks.

**Favorite video:** An embed or link to a favorite video. It should be PG (or even G rated).
[/spoiler:3ad1j50a]

For any changes to it after it is protected, I guess that the person would need to message an Organizer.

Hm... I'm not too sure about the first part, but I'm alright with the second part.
There is already an age area in the profiles here, but the actual date and month is not visible.

Well, the short answer is: From the research that I did, it currently is not possible.

Current template:
(Copy and paste it with any changes.)

**User name:** Their user name.

**Alias:** Other names that you may go by (such as if your chat, forum, and/or Wiki user name are different).

Then again, not everyone wants their birthday and year to be known, let alone age.

It's not like the template is enforced at all. It's not going to care if you enter nothing, or even non-numerical values. You could put your age as Scaramanga for all it, and I, care.

Like everything, it's optional. Use it or don't. There's no point in removing optional template functionality, especially when people will use it.

Mega_Mario
07-09-2009, 01:34 PM
Hm... Something I should mention about memes.

Not to offend anybody, but something about the memes:
Try not to post a meme that is somewhat not known.
"Mudkipz" and "Rickrolls" did not become a meme by just a few communities/areas, but by being well known to everyone.

So if something is created during a member stream, try to get it known into the community a little more before adding it as a meme.

The TSG Store page seems to be coming quite well.

This page (http://thespeedgamers-wiki.wikispaces.com/Podcast+Summaries) will probably be split up soon, but if anybody "happens" to be listening to every podcast and feels like typing a recap... well... _awesome_

Although, I believe they just recorded another podcast last night.

07-13-2009, 02:59 PM
I don't really have anything to contribute, but I agree with Mikey. The vast majority of those entries under the "Memes" section do not come close to qualifying as a meme. They're just in-jokes that see use every now and then, mostly around marathon time. Even then it's usually just a quick mention and, "Haha, I remember that." A lot of those jokes can't even be applied to describe very many situations. Others just come off as affectionate pet-names, I noticed most of the summary articles explicitly describe them as "inside jokes."

So as to not remove just about every entry there it'd do better to rename the section as "inside jokes." Not to ruin the fun, but it would make the Wiki appear much more standardized and professional. As well as the fact that other sections seem to have been neglected already in such early stages. People seem more concerned about creating a "meme" than contributing to and improving the Wiki as a whole.

Hm... I think that is doable. I'm not sure on a name though. How about instead of "Inside Jokes", "TSG Jokes"?


As well as the fact that other sections seem to have been neglected already in such early stages. People seem more concerned about creating a "meme" than contributing to and improving the Wiki as a whole.
I completely 100% agree. If you read over my posts, I have tried to subtly suggest this in my posts.

Next:

For future reference, could you be a little more specific? We were talking about podcasts, so it took me a little while to realize that you didn't mean Podcast 11. :lol:

Whatever name you decided on is fine, I was just suggesting breaking the connection to memes. Yes, I did notice you've been trying to draw peoples' attentions away from the Meme section to work on other pages. The fact that some have a single sentence is a tad disheartening...

Right now the biggest priority would be fleshing out existing pages, then gathering information for any new ones that may arise. I know fancy templates can be pretty difficult to make, so adding any type of flare to a page probably won't work out too well.

It's just that having a joke only a small group understands does not a meme make. Don't feel bad, that entire section is kinda messy. :V

So, I reformatted a couple pages today and boy are my fingers tired. Well, not quite. Wikispaces is definitely different from what I'm used to, is it me or does it reject a good portion of the Wikitext markup language? I've been trying to create some templates that work perfectly fine on other Wikis, but not here.

It's quite frustrating. >:C

It's kind of confusing to me to look in the history and see several updates on a page and not know what was changed on it.
Well, usually I forget to put that in there.

You can see what is changed.
If you go to the page, and click history. You can see the earlier versions of that page and compare them to see and changes.

There were actually a few other things mentioned back in the original planning stages, but things really died down in the recent months and most of it was never completed or implemented.

Well, actually I think I recall one of the issues about it was editing it. As I know that you have already noticed, Wikispaces does allow for individual profile pages to be created and edited by only the user. I could see possibly a page linking to the user profiles, the link added by the user. I do agree that a bit of a template is needed. All that I have right now is this: http://www.wikispaces.com/user/view/Mega_Mario

I would be a bit more reluctant to add certain information, as it is more of a public place being more open to view.

Rakuen
12-03-2009, 11:45 PM
Well, Wikis run on the concept of good faith. All edits are to be made for the benefit of the wiki. If someone vandalizes a page, you revert it. If they keep vandalizing it, you protect it, and in the case of Wikispaces, you can revoke membership. If an admin is vandalizing a page, you revoke their privileges. It's pretty much that simple.

As far as content, I've always been the major proponent that if you don't want to use something, you just don't use it. If you don't want to give the information for a field, just delete the field. But, since a large amount of "vital information" can be found here on the forums, perhaps the wiki template should focus more on "fun information". Things like favorite game, favorite food, favorite marathon, etc.
