Muppet Central Forum Dictionary... wiki?

    Hi everybody! Over the last few days, a few mods and I have been starting to beef up a brand new website, but it needs YOUR help. Yes, YOU! Because:

    http://mctionary.wetpaint.com/ is the official home for the Muppet Central Forum Dictionary!.

    Now, I think this needs clarification. This isn't a Muppet Dictionary; we have the Muppet Wiki for that! This is a MC FORUM dictionary, but maybe it would be more appropriately named as an Encyclopedia. This is the place to document, celebrate, and explain everything that makes Muppet Central Forum unique! And to make it truly complete, we would need YOUR input!

    I encourage everyone to join, add info to their profile,and create their own member page in the Members New and Old section. We are lacking alot of content in the Fan-Fiction section, and there is NOTHING in the wiki in regards to the puppetry section of this forum! So please join, look around, and if something you feel should be posted for everyone to read isn't there yet, please don't be shy to add it!

    Yes! Please come join us! It's tremendous fun and we really need some more member input! One thing though, try not to edit other member's pages in the Members New and Old Section, that would just be rude. :smirk:

    This site has already led me down many fun memory-lanes, but it needs everyone elses' memories and some organisation also! Come join us, tres fun!

    Yes, thank you! Real testimonies from semi-real people.

    The wiki is particularly lacking when it comes to:

    *Puppetry (ex., members who frequent the puppetry forum, shows you guys make, etc.) I'd really like to see people contribute to this (currently non-existent) section!
    *The MC Dorms game (Count,this is your territory)
    *All the old roleplays and stuff we used to do, like Muppets Survivor and Big Brother
    *Games in General
    *Fanfiction stuff
    *Fan ART

    I'll work on the fanfiction part.
    Guess which username I joined as? ;P

    *Feels left out. :cry: How come other mods got asked about this and not...
    *Quickly gets over it.
    But hey... Just gimme a link, registration process, and then the gloves are off!

    BTW: Funny you should be building this as I found an old version of the dorms file I have saved.
    :eek: :scary:

    Well, I joined, but I'm honestly too tired to write up a profile now.
    :( I'll be sure and do it tomorrow though. I'll also be putting up an immage as soon as I can.
    Was the hoast Wetpaint a coincidence?

    She meant mods of the Wiki, not mods of MC. It was only her, me and Prawnie there really. We just wanted to set up a bit of a framework before breaking it to the experts, and the world!

    Oh... Mods of Wiki... Picky, picky, picky.

    Just joined! How fun! I need a picture to insert on the members page. I'll try and find one to add, unless anyone else finds a picture that suits me first!

    Oh, I thought it was supposed to be a picture of yourself. Is it like an avatar then?

    Hi. Quick question, about the FanFic section... What are we supposed to add there? Links to download the stories themselves? Maybe the individual authors should be contacted about that. Oh well. :scary:
  13. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    For the fanfic section, we have a chart which details each story (started, not finished) in no particular order on one page. All the new characters (which you added, which is AWESOME!) on another page. And then in time we should have a page for each story maybe, with character lists, links to the stories, and details of the plot.

    Yay Beth! Glad to see poeple are on board. I will have to go check out what people have added!

    Fragglemuppet, yup the hosting site is called Wetpaint and it's totally free, but I did think it was amusing too!

    Count, about the fanfic section, poke around the rest of the wiki and see how other stuff is organised, and go with that. If you still don't know, ask me a more specific question and I'll give you a more specific answer. Also, don't be sore about not being a mod; the first couple people who got back to me were made mods so that they have enough priviledges to edit and organise the site like it needed to get off the ground. It's a wiki, not a forum; everyone has the same priviledges when it comes to content.

    Beth I tried to add a picture of your kitty self...but it looks odd :p So, yeah, do find a cool avatary thingie for yourself!

    Hey Mrs. P... That's okay with me. Like I said, I got over it after understanding the difference.
    :shifty: left as a plushie for her.

    BTW: I'll be interested to see how this grows in terms of pages/articles for future reference when adding/editing.

    Hi... Need some help. Could one of you guys or gals please provide me with a template model of how to add new pages/info? Also, when adding pages, the info I submit gets posted on the main section article's page. How do I make individual subpages within that article instead of just sticking it on that section's front page?
    Example: The Original FanFiction Characters got pasted on the front page for theFanFiction section, and then Bo moved it into a subpage of its own. How can I do that?
    *Bonus points to whoever identifies the quote there, hint, it's from a video game Kim or Erin are fans of.

    Okay, well, I'm not sure how your screenreader explains how things are laid out. But if you want to start a new page, you have to be on the home page. On the sidebar after the list of all the existing pages, there is a link that says Add Page. That's all you need to click to start a new one.

    If you want to start a sub page (a.k.a. a new page under an existing page/category), go to the page that you want to create a sub page for. Ex you want to create a page in the fanfic section, go to the fanfic page. Then do the same as before and click the Add Page button.

    And don't worry; wikis are for building together and if you are having any screenreader issues that you can't resolve, lemme know and I'll do what I can here to help. :)
