Changes by last author:

This page is designed to allow easy communication about ongoing Wiki projects. The projects are listed below. Please feel free to add any additional projects using the same format.
= Current Projects =
== Adding Pictures for all Strong Bad Emails ==
*Summary: We need a picture at the top of each Strong Bad Email page.
*Status: Upsilon has done alot of work on this project. Look at him go! All the pictures that were hosted by http://www.sbemail.net are no longer working. [Search] "sbemail.net" to find them all. (There are less than before!)
:*Okay, another thing has come up: quality. Upsilon's pictures have been fantastic, and so have Hobophobic's. You'll notice that the two of them use .png images. This file format offers great quality and fits very well in terms of practicality on the Wiki. I noticed earlier that some people are posting images they find through a Google image search. This really isn't the right idea. Especially taking them straight from Google's cache. You can see examples of what I mean here: Main Pages/MainPage 8, Main Pages/MainPage 3, Index Page, Main Pages/MainPage 11, and Main Pages/MainPage 2. Also, these don't follow the special note listed below for this project. Feel free to fix these images and any others that you come accoss like them.
*Special Note: Please don't hotlink to images found on other sites. Not only would that demonstrate poor Internet etiquette, but problems arise when other sites change, as seen here with sbemail.net. Feel free to email any images you need uploaded to Tom.

== Standarizing the Transcripts ==
*Summary: See TranscriptionStandards. All transcripts should eventually look like this.
*Status: Very few transcripts follow the standards at this time.

== Standarizing the Easter Eggs ==
*Summary: Easter Egg pages need to be organized to fit the format found in TranscriptionStandards.
*Status: Few pages are like the format of new toons in the StrongBadEmail easter eggs.

== New Toons menu ==
*Summary: The Brothers Chaps have updated their Toons menu. Some toons have been renamed and others fall into different categories.
*Status: We are going to need to come up with a system for fixing some of this stuff.

::Things I noticed:
::#The toon Powered By The Cheat has been re-named "New Boots" (which is what we were calling it for the first few weeks it was out. Funny, eh?)
::#Puppets: have been classified "Puppet Stuff". We really don't have to re-name the pages, just move stuff around on the Toons page.
::#New preview .swfs are going to have to be added to the listing in Secret Pages
::#Some other The Cheat toons are listed. Might want to do something about that on the Toons page.
::#Scroll-a buh-tone-es! Nifty.

= Conitnuous and Ongoing Projects =
== The "Summary of change" box ==
*Summary: I've noticed recently that people have been editing pages without leaving a comment in the "Summary of change" box. Or maybe it isn't so much that I notice when there isn't a comment, but I notice when there is a comment. For instance, I like to see things like:
::*"Added the single deuce that Strongbad gives Homestar in the office Dullard email."
::*"Fixed typo."
::*"Added links."
::*"Fixing link."
::*"Unlinking WikiWord."
::*"Added screenshot."
::*And sure, you can throw the funny one in there once in a while. I know some people like to throw a " ' D" after whatever they are doing...
*Status: I'm pretty much hoping that everyone will just try to make a conscious effort to put comments with their edits. -- Tom

== Page Titles ==
*Summary: Page titles (the caption in the title bar) need to be added for all the toons and games. The StrongBadEmails however, do not need this to be done, since they are all listed on the StrongBadEmail page.
*Status: Ongoing. Here's a sample of how they should look, using Cheat Commandos:

== Additional Information ==
*Page Title: Compy 386!!
*See the Transcript
*See the Easter Eggs
*See the [WikiForum thread]
*See the (User Comments)?
*See the [toon]
*See the [toon in fullscreen]

= Completed Projects =
== Standardizing the Games Menus ==
*Summary: The Games pages have been standardized. All future games should also fit this standard.
*Status: Completed.
