Hello all who care to read. As many of you know, the wiki is going through a number of changes (Admin polls, policy changes, etc). One such change is the complete rebuild of the wiki's teams.
...which is why I'm writing to you all today. I am the leader of the stub team and have been for some time now. However, we have never had an effectual, cooperative team. I've done quite a bit of destubbing work myself, but I (and Besty17) can't do it alone. I have pretty much no set standard for who I want to join. You can be a poor writer or almost no time to work, but it doesn't matter. I am willing to work with anyone who is willing.
Obviously, you probably have some questions, so let me begin.
Why Should I Join?
A fantastic, very reasonable question. Our wiki, like all others, has pages that are lacking in information of have received less attention. By joining, you would strengthening the weakest pages of the wiki. As the old saying goes, "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link". We are already a pretty esteemed and credible wiki, but improving the "weak links" will only better our already strong reputation.
What Would My Responsibilities Be?
As a member of the team, you would just need to fill in or add to pages with missing or inadequate sections. There is no set quota, but I hope to have some general projects for the team to work on.
How Many Stubs Are There? Is It Really a Problem?
This wiki currently has a total of 802 stubs. By section, we have:
- 491 Episode stubs
- 37 Location stubs
- 151 Chapter stubs
- 17 Character stubs
- 30 Merchandise stubs
- 20 Music stubs
- 10 Game stubs
- 0 Ship stubs
- 46 General Stubs
Almost a third of the pages on the wiki are stubs. Now the problem seems a little bit more significant, right? I'm not trying to intimidate you all. I just want to demonstrate why we really need to clean this stuff up.
I hope that I have answered some of the more common questions thoroughly. If you have additional questions, please let me know in the comment section.
I hope that this has been a bit of an eye opener and motivator. Now let's destub this wiki!
