-- Oh, and if I could post this, then a spammer can post whatever they want, too.  Requirin user registration, and hassling contributers until they're recognized as not spammers might drive off some users, but spam drives many more people off. --[[Special:Contributions/68.3.56.10|68.3.56.10]] 00:08, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

  • Make Plot Summary more detailed as Rob wants
  • Find and add Erfworld cameos to Erf Cameos.
  • Please figure out how to make {{Template:ID}} work to help in wikifying script text. Or explain the really easy way to do what needs to be done–Dan Hoeytalk 02:53, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Maintenance Tasks

  • Regularly check on the list of Wanted Pages to see if there is anything you can contribute.
    • 1863 of these found at 09:55, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
    • 441 as of 22:04, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
    • 20 on June 4, 2009 9:53 (UTC)
    • 10 on 13 November 2009, 20:55 (UTC)
  • Keep an eye on Dead-End, Uncategorized, and Unused pages. As well as Unused Categories. Attempt to fix as appropriate.
    • I've been whittling down the Uncategorized pile by putting a "Frame Contents" category on the comic Text/Description pages. After that bit of housekeeping, we may want to request a "Comic" namespace and put those pages there so that other articles show up in the "Random Page" function. SteveMB 18:13, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
    • We've knocked out the panels, but the Descriptions and Texts for each panel remain; I dunno what to do. Make a new category? Will their Categories appear on the Panel page as well? Will it throw things off? CIHN July 17 2009 - oh, noinclude. of course ...aaaaand... DONE! (June 19) Holy Boop. 1,000 pages.
      • OK, it looks like the wiki pages for comic pages/panels are basically done except for minor format/style tweaking and ongoing additions of updates and annotation footnotes. SteveMB 14:21, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
        • Uncategorized Pages has been cleaned out again. We'll need to keep an eye out to make sure that the "Frame Contents" category continues to be used correctly with Book 2. --MisterB777 06:09, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Review pages for advancement from Speculation to Proposed Canon. New information needs to confirm and/or change old theories, promoting or demoting them in turn.
    • A lot of old pages were written as Speculation because the authors were overly cautious. We know a lot more than some people think. I'm working my way through all Pages in the Speculation Category to look for advancement. Rob is only checking pages in the Propose dCanon category, so unless this is done, it will remain Speculation forever. --Kreistor 18:39, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Wiki Organization, added this page to help organize wiki as a whole. -- Paper Golem
  • Template:Blog is broken, and ought to be either fixed, or have Template:Erf substituted everywhere the former is used. Abb3w 03:14, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Updating the tamplates for IPTSF... hopefully these will work since there's no images. --MisterB777 12:29, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
