That's so awesome! I'm so glad you like the site enough to help Andy like this! And a wiki? That's a cool way to hopefully spread word about the site :)

Good to see you again Saurbaby. How was the long ass hiatus?

Eh, it's been a bit of a rough year for me actually. Things are starting to look up though :) Thanks though, I'm glad to drop by and see a few familiar users.

Interestingly enough, we had a wiki on wikipedia but it was deleted this past year. Interstingly enough, they don't base the criteria for a page on social interest or value, but popularity via internet searches.

I need help with the website however. If a couple people could help me manage the site and formulate some topics and pages, I would be in your debt.

I would be interested in doing so.

Nice job.

If I have time, I will try to contribute to the wiki! Looks interesting.

That's pretty cool. I didn't know making wiki pages were free. That's pretty amazing. What will you out on it?

debates from the site, people from the site, etc.

Oh, I like that even more. How would you know who to feature? Just ask them or just post it? hen would debates work the same way?

I managed to hyperlink to the site... and then got totally confused by the layout and where one is supposed to put what information. o.O If anyone wants to give me 101 Wiki for Dummies or put up a skeleton format I will find some time to fill in some additional info... but I do not want to make it a total mess because I do not know what I am doing.

Thanks so much animedude639! I really appreciate it. I will go out and update as much as I can.

here is a first pass at some things to mention:

why do you need wiki ?

I think they are hoping it will be an additional vector for getting more traffic (and therefore more members) on the site.

Yes, but what sort of Wiki it suppose to be? Like a tiny clone of Wikipedia?
