I agree!

But that's all I got. This site's for everyone and is literally what you make it out to be, so…join!(?)

I am all into this like a donkey eating a waffle…

I'd like to know where all of the newer members of S4F are. You'd think people currently involved in the group would be more likely to want to participate since they are currently creating these memories. The wiki is basically memories from those of us who started the whole thing! where are the new people??

maybe you should consider also writing an iphone app. That would help me out a lot! haha!!

Stephen!

Man, I'm sorry if I dropped the ball. I definitely got pulled away for some other exciting life happenings and will be back for more Wiki goodness in March. Maybe then it'll be more of a main course than side dish for me—I really want to see this site thrive.

So much energy behind our starting this thing and already, we've fizzled out.

Looks like I'll just kick back with the tumbleweeds for awhile and make myself at home…

Um, other than I played the man with the atheist left foot and the climax of the scene was a revelation from God, directly to my foot, as I slept. I'm pretty sure this was in the "Movie Critic" improv game too.

So, as I started typing in the story behind "My Left Foot, the Atheist", I realized I didn't remember it as well as I thought I did. Anyone remember it better and can offer a little more help?

Me + FTP updates = love

Man, I used to use DOS's FTP utility to upload stuff!

I like the idea that the author's comments are included in the footnotes. 3rd person is my vote too, as long as it's not dry. We've been doing a good job of keeping our "reporting" very lively and funny and I'd love to see the rest of the site done like Director Gone Wrong or How Spoons for Forks Got Its Name. It really brings back good memories and much hilarity.

Some footnotes currently have editor's notes in them, which I feel is not necessary. If any changes are made to the page, simply use the "Short Description of the Changes" window which is then included in the history.

BTW, I am willing to be a style Nazi.

That's hot.

I'm thinking through the image management right now…I have a hosting space (100,000 MB) for spoonsforforks.com and I would like let everyone use it to upload images and link them in whatever article they need to. That means all the profiles, posters, pictures…any image could (and probably should) be stored on my hosting space to access here. I'll have more details soon, but if people are familiar with FTP it will be a snap. I'll try to come up with a web novice option too.

BTW, I am willing to be a style Nazi. I've plenty of web and editing experience, and I enjoy doing it. Once we decide on some style guidelines I'll be happy to enforce them.

One idea I had is standard thumbnail sizes. Also, for any images larger than, say, 200x200, have a thumbnail and link to the larger image to conserve screen real estate, much the way Wikipedia does it.

If this wiki is going to be seeing some widespread exposure, i.e., general public, friends and family of members both past and future, first person will seem very exclusive and inside-jokeish. I would vote for all third person writing with any personal statements included as footnotes along with the initials or name of who wrote them.

In the beginning I put some basic catagories and navigation together that I thought would work well, and it has for the most part in these early stages. Now I'm not so sure and would like to hear your thoughts.

The goal here is to have the site be intuitive enough so things are where you expect them to be and it doesn't take long to get there.

Also another big question is whether we should write and rewrite these articles in 3rd person, like you would find on a typical educational/informational resource.

I like to use the "page link wizard" button to find the right page. When you click it and start to type the page name, a list of created pages shows up that you can then choose from to make sure you have a working link.

You'll have to create the page first though if you want the wizard to locate what you're looking for.

Also, once I have the new look I'll try to post a "style sheet" here to show everybody what the different wiki formatting codes (like H1, H2, H3…) will do and where it's appropriate to use them.

One More Thing by David Michael MooreDavid Michael Moore, 13 Jan 2009 03:20

When I started S4F Wiki I didn't concern myself with the look of the site so much, I just posted it ASAP and invited everybody I knew. Now that the content is coming along (very nicely!) I want to move away from the green/white look for something a little more appealing. The changes will not affect any of the content of the site.

If you're familiar with CSS you know that changing the way the site looks is actually pretty simple. Along with a new color scheme we'll have a new banner and fonts. Heading fonts 1-6 will be updated to fit the new theme.

There is not a definite date on when the changes will appear.

Mr. Netzel, I've got to say THANK YOU for bringing a whole lotta content to S4F Wiki. You've made a huge difference in just the few days you've been here and it is appreciated.

Oh man. The new peanut factory illustration is disturbing. Hilarious, but disturbing…

Don't mean to make this complicated, but I'd like to see Stephen's phallic peanut with Adam's mouth. (Don't take that out of context.) Is there a way to combine the two? Any thoughts? Does anyone else remember? I was there but don't have a clear picture.
