Guys,

As I've mentioned in another thread, recently Dave gave me permission to edit the wiki articles.  So, for the past couple hours now, I've been updating and fixing some pages that have been in need of it.  I've basically been learning how to use the codes as I go along.

Most of the articles I have edited/created were Northeast and Liberal Party-related, but there are still many changes that need to be made.  But I was thinking, it would be great if updating the wiki could be a collaborative effort, so I just wanted to bring this to the spotlight. Smiley

When I was Attorney General for the first time, I had to update an entire statute page, which was neglected beyond any recognition.

Wiki updating is a very annoying, very consuming task, but we need people who are willing to do it. Kudos, Scott Smiley

No problem.  I know several other people have worked hard on the wiki, but it's still fairly inactive today in that respect.  I just don't want this all to go to waste.

I also got access to the wiki yesterday, so once I have figured out how it works I will update a couple of pages in the next time. If I am elected Mideast Governor, it'll be my constitutional duty to update Mideast-related pages anyway. For those Atlasian regions who don't have such a law in place - this might actually be an idea to make your Governor do something while he's in office!

That's a great idea!

I remember those days. For me it was mostly 2005 - 2006. Can't believe I've been on this forum for that long. Wow.

     I've been doing this for the IDS, but real life concerns have gotten in the way of it. Still, before I started, the region only had laws on the wiki through mid-2007 & a brief stretch of 2009.

One small thing everyone can do to help is maybe update their own individual pages and electoral histories?  I've done that for some people, but it would save a lot of work if everyone could chip in by doing that small task.  Than again, I'm still not sure if a lot of people would be up for this.

Learning how to edit the pages itself isn't that difficult.  I learned just by copying and pasting templates from other pages and making slight adjustments to the codes so that I can create tables and stuff.  The hardest part will be gathering all the information from the boards and transferring it to the wiki.

The latter is where I'd need direction. Anyway, I'll have a bit of free time over the next week and I'd like to get started with this. Do I need to contact Dave for editing privileges?

Click on 'Email' at the top of the page, put in your information, and tell him that you'd like access.  I received access the very next day I emailed him, so you should too.

I've tried to contact him in the past apropos an issue with the link between my forum account and my Atlas account and he's never bothered responding to me. I'll try to contact him anyway.

Obviously I don't have as much available time as before, and it's summer so I'll be out, but I am able to edit the wiki if I'm notified via PM.

     Dave gave me access the next day too. However, I have heard stories of people who waited weeks to gain access. How long it takes you is up to fortune.

I don't have a Wiki account, but I thought I'd try to compile some of the regional (IDS) election results as I try to catch up on history. I believe it's all correct; there may be some errors/needed updates in the party of the individual and the % of the vote; didn't count write-ins unless there were no formal candidates.


IDS August 2011 Election

Incumbent Emperor PiT stood for re-election, facing no challengers. IDS Viceroy Ben Kenobi and Attorney General Brandon H did not seek re-election. Yelnoc and tb75 both sought the office of Attorney General and former Viceroy Taft4Prez sought to reclaim the position. Taft4Prez and tb75 won their respective races (sorry about the poor formatting.
