Default Scrolls of Lore at WoWWiki

I was thinking about updating significantly our article at WoWWiki. I have some ideas, but I would like to know your opinion first:

Known members table:
I'd include all the member of SoL at this table, with some features, like:
-Name
-Rank (Moderator, Elune, Wisp, Huntress...)
-Titles/role (Random fun, each user should decide the content)
-Status (Active, disappeared, lazy to post...)
-Registration (Joining date)

Scrolls of Lore membership badge
Something like this:

But SoL style, of course. SoL registered members could add it to their user pages, and we could create our own category for storing our profiles. Something like Category: Scrolls of Lore members.

And more stuff I'll make when I get inspiration. Any ideas or content you would want to be included?

I like the idea except for the members table, because that would be too huge an undertaking. A badge would be cool, though.

Members table too huge?

Well, yeah. I imagine it would end up as something like this: http://www.wowwiki.com/Red_dragonflight#Known_members

I wouldn't have any problem making it. After all, I made this: http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Lon-ami/...haracters#Naga

We could make it in a separate page, anyway. Something like "Scrolls of Lore members", linked to the "Scrolls of Lore" page. It would be categorized under the category I spoke off before.

And yeah, the badge is something I've been waiting since long .

PS: If you register, do it with your name. No need to put <name> SoL. Also, some already registered users:
http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Lon-ami
http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Timolas
http://www.wowwiki.com/User:WarlockSoL
http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Cantus - SoL

Cantus why did you remove:

"New folks are advised to word their posts carefully lest they invoke the wrath of the xenophobic loremasters. "Teh leet" is an enemy to all life."

It was a pretty good informative text . Also, no need to create a 100% serious page; it's a fansite page, and we can add some humor.

We're not xenophobic, not all of us are loremasters, and "The leet" would confuse anyone and everyone who's not used to our opinions (even with the linked explanation). Keep in mind who's reading the page, because otherwise we end up looking like racist close-minded assholes.

A better statement would be, "New members are encouraged to research lore themselves as simple questions like "Who is Grom?" aren't looked kindly upon." And "They also see the death of well known or in/famous characters for epic loot as a waste of lore."

Yeah, that would be better.

Feel free to edit it yourself, or I'll do later.

Anyway, if any of you have any kind of doubt about the wikicode or the styles or anything; ask me. After all, I'll be more than pleased of explaining everything you request.

I'm not xenophobic... I'm a Fascist.

If you don't follow the lore, you disappear... forever.. and your family... and even little timmy from down the road who always gets the cold during the winter that you find adorable...

*in a deep menacing voice* ... All of them

Opinions? I'm looking forward your ideas for the badge, so please, give your opinions .

Elegant and stylish.

Though the simple template someone designed already is good enough for me.

Ooh nice userbox

As for the red dragonflight table Lon-ami, i know. See the black dragonflight known members table for an even bigger one. I've been meaning to move them to a seperate page like we have for the known paladins of each faction and the list of high elf npcs, i just havent gotten around to it plus it sorta slipped my mind.

Yeah .

It's nice to have a userbox, too, since a lot of people likes to collect them at their user page.

For the badge, I was thinking about something bigger, like the WoWWiki club badge, but it would need work. I could try making a simple one later.

Also, you call that a big template? duh:

http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Lon-ami/Dragon_characters

And they were all together in a single table before I decided to separate them .

Seen the one on my user page?

Thing is i like it that way so i can alphabetize and such. Plus with my monitors resolution i get every character in a single line and it doesn't look bad. But i know in the article it just looks terrible.

WHoA... xDDD

That's why I don't like user boxes: you start posting more and more and you can't stop until you have the page full of them :S .

Indeed.

Type of the day: check the maps before going host, some of them won't work properly because of Blizzgenius.

Man, I'd love to play WCIII with you guys,

Time zone, So I'm at +9 GMT here, that would be an issue, I guess. Unless you start late in the Friday evening and I get up extra early on Saturday (confusing), but I would still need to leave early since I have school on Saturdays.

Between what times do you usually play?

Well... the GMT take the shit out of me, but I think we played on 7 GMT or something like that...

Wwould be easier if we knew where are you from, perhaps there's someone from there, too, and can tell you the correct hour.

Anyway, let's move the W3 Bnet topic here: http://www.scrollsoflore.com/forums/...649#post151649
