And I mean, even I didn't figure out how this is supposed to work until today. It takes time to think of stuff to contribute, and anyone who's managed an information page can tell you that users tend to be very reluctant in giving constructive feedback (in terms of additions and modifications).

Once we've got a bunch of pages set up and people figure out what kinds of stuff make it to KMA, I'm sure the contributions will come trickling in. [...] I would suggest making another announcement once we've got a bunch of articles going, focusing on how exactly people can contribute and on how shiny the outcome can look, rather than on trying to sell it as a new idea.
Lady Wu wrote:The reason why I asked if this was only for games, James, was that I wanted to make changes to some of my earlier SGZ bios, and didn't want to have to bother you with ever wording change I decide to make. I don't know how hard it'd be to make the footnote system work with this new code stuff, and I guess you'd have to take the current pages off, post here as a new topic, and re-upload it to KMA? I haven't the faintest how this works, but you have until I get back from Kyrgyzstan to figure it out. (Go goof off tomorrow.)

Qu Hui wrote:Whoops, sorry. Here's what I meant: Could I please have access to the Biography tool in the development project, and could you please move the Empress Bian Comprehensive Biography I wrote into it?
Sun Fin wrote:Hi James, I voluntered for this ages ago but never actually wrote an article. However for my history coursework last year I wrote an essay about the 3K, at 3,500 words its probably a bit longer than you wanted/intended but is it the kind of thing you want posted here?
