: ...But, all that being said I agree that Guidelines updates wouldn't make sense as an "event" in the JanuWiki mold, where we try to solicit come-one-come-all participation from as many users as possible. Heck, they may not be a very good fit for any sort of organized "group effort" at all — our best bet may be for someone to eventually just dive in and start making [[wikipedia:WP:BOLD|Bold]] changes to define an updated, improved structure for the content. Even if they only update a single Guideline article, once there's an example to work off of, other editors can pitch in to apply the same changes to the rest of the Guidelines. (That sort of example-based, follow-the-leader model is how ''most'' content-wide changes propagate here, really. Djonni created the {{tlx|hero or heroine}} template set, but he's responsible for only a handful of edits that applied those templates to article content.) -- [[User:FeRDNYC|FeRDNYC]] ([[User talk:FeRDNYC|talk]]) 14:43, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
===SummerWiki Ending Talk===
:: So, I'm belatedly rejoining the event conversation, having dropped off the planet halfway through JanuWiki, and then slunk back onto the scene in the twilight of SummerWiki. I think it's worth picking this thread back up, with a chance for folks to share observations.
:::I'd resume my opinion about this in a single sentence. Most Gods and Goddesses don't care much about the Godwiki. Then, if you want more details, I'd say that many advertising was done, here and on [[Talk:SummerWiki 2019]], on forums (Thanks [[User:SourceRunner|SourceRunner]], [[User:S624|S624]] and [[User:Cham Almighty|Cham Almighty]] for that), game announcment (thx the dev), in godvoices. And basically almost no one outside of the active Godwiki users went in. So there was basically no excitement to maintain to begin with (and we decided 2 months so people had more time to write and in case of vacations), and those who say who'll help probably got caught up with life. So I'll conclude by saying that Summer wasn't the best time and that people doesn't want to contribute in general. It might sound salty, but after hours working on the event, for less than 15 articles done, I think I can be a little dissapointed with the community in general^^. It was probably also my fault for not being either in a major guild, or being a long-known player of the game. --[[User:WardPhoenix|WardPhoenix]] ([[User talk:WardPhoenix|talk]]) 21:05, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
::::Um... I'm not sure if I'm overstepping any boundaries by talking here even though I'm really new compared to everyone here, but I really wanted to put my two cents in about the event. I actually disagree with [[User:WardPhoenix]] blaming himself for the event's failure. To be honest, I ended up doing the event almost entirely because he seemed rather passionate about putting this thing together! I'm not exactly the bravest person out there when it comes to interacting with others (especially the Internet), but seeing someone whole-heartedly doing his best to lead a creative event made me decide to give this whole Godwiki thing a shot - so basically, no, I have doubts that this 'lack of key personalities' thing had much to do with how SummerWiki went. Now, the other thing that [[User:Djonni]] pointed out (namely the time restraint}... Yeah, I think that was the biggest issue. Most people want to kick back and do something relaxing over the summer - anything with deadlines are the exact opposite of that. And that's my opinion on the whole thing. I'm starting to overshoot my own comfort zone at this point, so I'm just going to go and stop while I'm ahead. I really hope that I helped in any way, and sorry if I overstepped by talking on here. -- [[User:Arcanedreamer|Arcanedreamer]] ([[User talk:Arcanedreamer|talk]]) 02:56, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
You totally have the right, as everyone here does, to participate in any talking of the GodWiki and it's really welcome to have any kind of constructive feedback or contribution (especially as we aren't many, as you noticed), so [ never hesitate] to give your opinion or to contribute!. I'm also kind of new compared to someone as [[User:Djonni|Djonni]] since I only really "joined" the GodWiki community with the [[JanuWiki 2019]] event he started.
I thank you for your kind words, if my commitment atleast manage to bring you there, it's a small but nice victory I'd say! I am agreeing with the time restriction as well, but I am repeating myself with my previous message. Atleast, now we know that doing an event in the summer is not a good idea, so we got that going for us which is nice. --[[User:WardPhoenix|WardPhoenix]] ([[User talk:WardPhoenix|talk]]) 16:14, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
== The Monstrous Recapitalisation of 2019 ==
Obviously, this is a fairly low priority and on-going project, so it'll take a while and a bit of work to get done together. :) -- [[User:Djonni|Djonni]] ([[User talk:Djonni|talk]]) 08:44, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
