Who's Who in the STE-niverse

Postby Shawna F » Sun May 22, 2016 7:18 pm

I was just thinking, in the wake of the terrorist attack by the Order of the New Kai on Bremen's latest mission, it might be a good idea to have a thread (or a wikia? which is unwieldy and hard to code, granted, but still) detailing the recurring villains, NPCs, major events everyone should know, major groups, etc. Because I know this group has come up before, but it's been so long I honestly don't remember much about them. It would be helpful for newbies who don't know what even a cadet should probably know about (like the death of the last Federation President and a fair chunk of their cabinet, and the new President and their fear-mongering politics), and helpful to oldbies who might not remember a name that came up a year ago.

Also might be good for plot points and recurring characters that all other crews might have heard about. Perhaps even make it in-universe, like a weekly or monthly news bulletin of things most people in the Federation might know.

I like this idea! I'd be willing to help in any fashion I could to code something up, if that was the route game leadership decided to take to implement something like this.

I'm pretty sure there are free wiki tools and such that we could avail of, no?

I think if we had a strong team to start this off, it'd be very useful indeed.
James, thoughts?

We actually have the code for it already, it just isn't active. And we're lacking on contributions to the database, although it is in the GD Forum so that'd reduce the people able to offer updates.

I'll add it to the list and we'll get something going!

idk of the kind of setup you guys have, but if you wanted to have some kind of GD helper just for something like that--say all of the ship GDs give this one person updates on things to add, parsed in a way that can be easily added and not infomodded or bogged down--then that might be something? But I'm glad there's something already in the works! :toot:

Sounds like you've gone and volunteered, Shawna. :V

I'll get you access to the microwiki and the information we have this week.

Oooo a microwiki. Maybe that'll help the newbies be less confused as to going ons. And, wait... idea here: What if you all put the guides for playing each department onto the wiki. Condense all that info into one place and less links to throw onto the main site.

If you need help with that, lemme know. I have my magical ways, being stuck with crappy wifi filters too.



And yes, the term wiki wizard very much applies there.
