i prefer the category "things" to pop culture, like in the complete guide.
I know we have film, music, literature, musicals, etc for pop culture - so does that mean any song? Should say, Happy Birthday be entered under pop-culture? What about classical — It's still popular, and was really popular once, right?
And what about food? Is food considered a pop culture item? I had no idea what a mallomar was until very recently when I actually looked it up on the internet. I, for some reason, would probably consider Cheerios to warrent an entry, as it is a brand name, but then again.. I don't know.
i do too, but i'm supposed to be spending several hours a day on old fedya, so it can get kind of tedious after a while.
logan bruno, boy baby-sitter… what a classic. the badd boyz. the stolen nicky cash tickets. the note with mary anne portrayed as a rat with a bow in her hair as rat logan is jumping hurdles.
I'm here! I can't find my copy of Logan Bruno, Boy Baby-sitter.. and that was the last entry I was working on.
I love Dostoevsky!
i've been really busy with work and school and aughhh! i barely have time to write this post as i'm supposed to be writing an essay on dostoevsky.
It's been a week since anyone edited anything or posted anything on the forum; I just wanted to say yo. Personally, I've been pretty busy at work lately and suffering from a virus last week, so I really haven't had the energy to do much here. But I hope we're not all abandoning our effort!
It could just go under a general "trivia" heading. Or a more specific one, if you want. There's no set procedure, at least that I'm aware of :)
Almost everything I've been doing for the wiki has been at work, using the eBooks as references, so I wouldn't have been able to put the page numbers if I'd wanted to. But I agree that they're superfluous.
i like the idea of having a section for other ann books. i will make one now. definitely put the thing about stuff n nonsense; that's really funny.
Naming the book is most important; you can put page numbers if you want but i feel like it's really annoying and knowing the book is enough. when i go home for thanksgiving i'm going to upload the complete guide things that people did to a website for wiki members to access so everyone can access the info for making pages. then the page numbers will be there, so feel free to include them. it won't be the same across the whole website, but i think it's ok.
I was looking at the article on Stuff 'n' Nonsense in the Washington Mall, and that's also the name of one of the stores on Main Street in the Main Street books. I was wondering if we should include stuff like that in these articles or not, considering that it's not actually from the BSC. Should we maybe mention related things from other Ann books under a particular subheading at the end of articles when there's a situation like that? I apologize if you've already got a procedure for this and I just haven't noticed.
What do you guys think of having an article on Jean Feiwel, who actually came up with the idea for club??
Sweet, I'll fix that.
I went ahead and moved/renamed the page, although I didn't revise the text at all because I've already stayed up past my bedtime :)
I've just been winging it, but my instinct is basically to include the book number when it's a specific event, and to include the title when the event is relevant in some way to the rest of the book. But if it's a general fact about the character (or whatever), like "Sam is on the math team at SHS", I don't bother with the CG-style citations, because I asked Greer what she thought about that when she first started the wiki and IIRC (and I'm sure she will clarify her opinion if necessary) she said she didn't really care. I guess for me, mentioning the book is more about showing how something or someone is portrayed throughout the series, as opposed to Wikipedia's emphasis on things needing to be sourced to be reliable.
I was going to do this earlier, but I don't have that privilege. I can change titles, but not URLs …
Here's something I've been meaning to ask:
Citations. Should we continue citing in the article, such as "Stacey falls in LUV with her teacher in #65, Stacey's Big Crush" or use footnotes, like in Wikipedia… and on Mallory's character page? (I think it's mallory that I experimented with that)
Not a bad idea, either, especially because I'm pretty sure she would still be listed at the top unless another writer's first name comes before "Ann" alphabetically.
You could put the full-size version on its own page, and then put a smaller version and/or just a link to the bigger version on the Stoneybrook page.
