My to-do list:
- Work on the "species" section of the Theories article
- Add an "OSC Literature" article (since we already have a Comic one)
- ???
- Don't profit

Good idea with the literature section! I think it's important to keep track of those too!

I'm mainly working on planting more stubs to be expanded later, starting with the mainframes because on the wiki, they've just been so overlooked!

i should start contributing.

hey bells, feel free to work on the species section, but shouldn't that be left till we've fleshed it out more? we dropped off of it pretty suddenly in the old thread. :\

Been planting more stubs, created articles for OS/360, NOS and TSOS.

Btw, what should we do with the Windows 7 article since I think it needs updating. It only says that Nanami is the 'official' Windows 7-tan, but wasn't that recently debunked? Also can't forget the many 7-tan designs out there! If it gets rewritten, she will still get a section of her own in the article since she was so influential, and polarizing!

That good. I could really use some help with that one. Should we include the most notable 7-tan designs, akin to what was done in the Vista article?

Just got two more stub articles up:

*Apple Newton

*Sinclair QL

i'm going to do that, but i'm actually going to include pictures of the 7-tans (there aren't as many as vista to my knowledge).

i might also update the vista article to include pictures.

also, does the wiki follow the same format as wikipedia? (i have the cheatsheet and i wanted to know if it was of any use. :\ )

EDIT: i can't edit the wiki ;___; i guess i don't have permission yet...

*Apple Newton

I'd like to point out that the Newton wasn't necessarily bad at handwriting (Inkwell is the refined version of the Newton's handwriting software) it's that Apple set the bar very very high (like recognizing 95% of all handwriting on the first sentence) and ,of course, didn't meet it; since the technology simply wasn't around. That made people's opinion of it go down since it wasn't as good as Apple promised, even though it was still rather advanced for the time.

Perhaps she could claim to be an expert writer but be only average at it :) that would not be a big change and could give her and some of the desktop Publishing Macs some family ties and open her up for some rivalries and character development.

Not wanting to intrude, just a suggestion  ;D

@Choco:Yes, this wiki uses the same markup and codes as Wikipedia.

I've had to go to the help pages on Wikipedia to get help on formatting links and images, because the help pages on our wiki are too messed up.

@Krizo: Oops. I didn't know that! I'll revise that in her article!

Krizonar

I spent a lot of time constructing my message, because I didn't want to sound mean or commanding. Hopefully I didn't :)


W00T, I CONTRIBUTED!

good idea, krizo. :3 i'd make her arrogant about her penmanship, but never be able to live up to her claims. it could serve as a personal foil and a secret shame, which would deepen the character. :3 (that's just me though ^^; )

@aurora: any way to get me into editing the wiki? :\

I could definitely see that, she spent 6 years in training of the fine art of handwriting (...lol?), she is totally the best! mwhahaa!

i forget if it was this one or the annex project thread that i said i'd make the bio for freeDOS. but when i was poking around freeDOS's wikipedia page i found this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4DOS

should she be counted as a -tan or not? :\
