Ultronomicon talk:Community Portal
What would everyone think of having a Who's who page (in terms of wiki contributors)? Each person could write one or two sentences about themselves. I think it might help strengthen our community and help newcomers know who everyone is without going around to everyone's userspace. -Fadookie 03:37, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
You mean like This one? The trick would be to actually get people to write things about themselves, I'd wager.

I was thinking more along the lines of a list of main contributors with short bios. That special page only gives names- on a Who's who page you could say "I am a WikiGnome", "I enjoy contributing graphics and occasionally edit for asthetics", etc. -Fadookie 05:24, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
Isn't that what personal user pages are for? Click on anyone's name, pow, there's everything they wanted to say about themselves. Mmrnmhrm 14:52, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
Yes. I know it sounds redundant, but first of all, not everyone puts info about themselves on their userspace. Also, this would provide an easy way for newcomers to see who's who without having to go through everyone's user page. -Fadookie 16:36, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
I can see how this can be useful. I guess it would belong in the "Ultronomicon:" section. -- SvdB 21:57, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
This is pulling links from talk and user pages which is misinformative. Is there a way to restrict this to only counting links from normal content pages?
I think such an alteration would require the wiki code to be modified, so you'd have to ask Svdb. -Fadookie 16:40, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
It's probably very easy to do if you are familiar with the wiki server code. But I would have to get familiar with that code first... is this really worth it? Probably eventually all non-existing linked pages would be added. That page gives an idea of which ones are more wanted, but is it really necessary to have exact numbers? -- SvdB 21:57, 20 Oct 2004 (CEST)
Some talk and user pages link to articles that have been purposefully moved or deleted. Keeping these "requested" links on the page only makes it likely that they will have to be deleted again. (example: 1 Link Pages) You're right that it's not terribly important, but I think it would be preferred, y'know, eventually. Mmrnmhrm 15:49, 21 Oct 2004 (CEST)
