If you see a section is being worked on, please do not add, edit or remove content until you notify the person working on that specific section. Making the Wiki uniform across the board will not only make it look nicer, but make it easier for users to find what they want faster. If you see somebody working a section and you think something was neglected, please PM/Chat them up first before making a change so we can avoid unnecessary edits/removals/etc..
The initial building process for the Wiki COULD be a crazy experience, so I agree with LoveDoc. If you have some info to add to a page that's under construction, go ahead and contact them here in the forums to make sure it's alright to do so. If you want to do the work you can add it to your talk page, or create a sandbox for yourself, so when you get the ok to do the edits, you can just copy and paste information you've compiled.
Your sandbox or talk page is also where you should do any experimenting with formatting that you want.
somebody should get working on the special events like CT, CT is going to take FOREVER, i dont want to be the poor schmuck who has to add that...
no but in all seriousness, i honestly can find no information on HOS earlier than 2006, its like internet wasnt made yet! any info on that would be fantastic!
I've made an adjustment to the Howl-O-Scream section. The main page will just have generic information about the events, and each year should have it's own article rather than be listed on the main page.
Just changed the formatting of the Timeline on the main page... Like big time. I hope no one minds- if so, here is the timeline before I did anything to it (if someone changes it back my feelings won't be hurt- I promise).
I'd personally like to see it subdivided by decade. 1970s, 1980s, 19990, 2000s, 2010 - that way, from the top of the page, if you know the basic "era" of what you're looking for, you'll be able to divide there instead of scrolling through the long list (which was now doubled in size).
That would probably be best but I'd better let Chris do that. I think I've changed enough for today & I wouldn't want to mess anything up. :s
EDIT: Just saw that the main page says that is the Basic Timeline. Is there a non-basic timeline? If so, it'd be even better to just have super basic info (coaster, ride, and area openings and closings) on the main page and then have a full timeline on another page. There was a lot I wanted to add but I didn't want to make it even longer than it is now. This non-basic timeline could be divided by decade as suggested by LoveDoc above. Thoughts?
Then when those are clicked, they'll link to another page of information while the main "Timeline" would link to basic information and the decade timeline. Just seems cleaner to me, but as you said, I'll/we'll let Chris handle that one,he's the one that put it there.
It just seems a bit .. "loooonnggggg" to have what's there now in that format. :-/
Hmm, in my opinion, I'd think it'd look better without all the individual years in that menu context. That just makes the box even longer. Is somebody wants to look up something from 1979, they can just click '1970s' and look at the page. I just don't think there's nearly enough itemization to warrant a context menu for each individual year. Most of the decades don't even require scrolling the page at any time.
I dunno, just my thoughts. You know me. I'll shut up now. :s
