Xeniph videos

There are four Xeniph videos (The Anti-Anti-Cribs, I don't know what to think..., Searching, and Square One) that don't have pages yet. If someone wants to create the pages and work on the transcripts, that'd be great.--Jonpro 23:35, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Done! Also added images/captions and fixed up the transcripts for the existing videos. --Zoey 20:56, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
Sweet, nice work.--Jonpro 18:55, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Categorizing images

There are something like 150 images in Category:Images of fans and spinoffs that could use a little subcategorization. A subcategory shouldn't be created for every image necessarily, but there are some (such as Paul and Andrea) that deserve subcategories so that they can be located easier.--Jonpro 23:35, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Done!! --Zoey 14:18, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
Nicely done. I also added Category:Defense force images as there seemed to be a good number of defense force images. And one small thing: it's usually not a good idea to have a page (or image) in a category and a subcategory of that category. For example, there's no need to have an image in Category:Images of fans and spinoffs and Category:Itscassie images. I removed the extra category with the LGBot, but I just thought I'd let you know. Good work, though!--Jonpro 18:55, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Maddison Atkins videos

Transcripts need to be written for all of Maddison Atkins's videos. And one already has subtitles!--Jonpro 15:52, 16 April 2007 (CDT)

Har har. I feel like the offical fanfic transcriber :P Anyways, added transcripts for all her vids. --Zoey 20:24, 17 April 2007 (CDT)

More image categorization

There are a lot of images in the top image category Category:Images. Not all of these can be put into existing categories, but some probably can. Also, if new categories can be created to categorize the rest, then that can be done too.--Jonpro 22:04, 21 April 2007 (CDT)

Done! I went through a bunch of the subcategories too and categorized them. Hopefully this will be good (for now at least!) Let me know if there's anything else :) --Zoey 16:42, 22 April 2007 (CDT)
Thanks for getting that done...looks like it was a fair amount of work. From what I can tell it looks great. I'll be sure to add anything that I see that needs to be done.--Jonpro 18:00, 22 April 2007 (CDT)

LordGreystoke422's videos

LordGreystoke422 has a lot of videos, most of which don't have pages and some which do but don't have transcripts. Transcribing all of them will be a big task, but if anyone's up to it, then more power to them.--Jonpro 01:33, 13 April 2007 (CDT)

Okay, maybe it's just me, but I personally don't really think LG422 even needs video pages. A lot of the fan video series don't have individual video pages, but just have a basic summary of their plotlines on a page for them. Especially since LG422 doesn't really claim to be a character.. and posts on the site and has his own userpage and everything. Personally, I think the page that exsists already would probably suffice. I would love to hear people's thoughts on this though... --Zoey 21:06, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
Hmmm, good point. I just noticed that the first few videos had video pages but the rest didn't, so I figured they all should. Now I'm thinking it may not really be necessary. Other thoughts?--Jonpro 18:55, 14 April 2007 (CDT)
On the community portal, it says that the LGPedia loves fan fiction. While LG422 isn't claiming to be anybody (a party guest, an old British friend, etc.), he is fan fiction, sort of like Bubbleteagirl. Bubbleteagirl's videos don't have pages, but I think they should and I think that LG422's should too. Feedback? SilverBULLETx3 14:59, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
I mentioned something similar on Talk:My Hero Deserves a Name, but I'm still not really decisive on the issue. LordGreystoke422's page has a summary of his videos, so is it really necessary to transcribe each one? There's a balance, I think, between having a video page for every video even remotely connected to LG15 and only including stuff that's canon. Obviously neither extreme is ideal, but we have to decide where we should fall on that continuum. Oh, and there's also the practical side too--does anyone really want to transcribe all of LG422's videos?--Jonpro 15:23, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
I would volunteer for the task of making all the video pages, including Transcript and Notes sections, and including the video templates with information completed. I'm not the best transcriber, so I'd leave that task to somebody else. SilverBULLETx3 15:44, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
If someone is going to actually sit down and transcribe his soliloquy-heavy hours of videos, I'd say fine. I really think it would take days. I just don't really see anyone doing that -- and I might question the mental health of someone who survived that experience :) He appears to have made his last video months ago. Unless someone volunteers to transcribe I'd vote not to create 50 permanently incomplete pages. --JayHenry 15:57, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
Definitely. I applaud Silver's enthusiasm for chronicling LG422's videos, but we should take them one at a time. If you're a slow transcriber, that's not a problem, just take your time. However, I certainly don't want 50 pages of just video templates with no transcripts, especially since we don't know who is going to do them some day, if ever. That isn't helpful to anyone. OwenIsCool 16:22, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
Okay, cool. I won't create the video pages, however, if somebody (all I've noticed is that Zoey has transcribed a lot, and I mean a lot, of the new girl videos) volunteered to transcribe them, me and the transcriber could work together on it. They'd tell me when they're ready to transcribe the next video, I'd create the page, they'd transcribe it. So, that's my hypothesis. SilverBULLETx3 17:07, 8 May 2007 (CDT)

I don't actually think my sanity levels would permit me to transcribe all of those videos :P. Right now it seems like the pages are just sitting around. Unless someone has an objection really, I think I'm going to delete the video pages and just leave the main page for LG422. What do people think about that? --Zoey 13:10, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

I went ahead and deleted them. --Zoey 18:13, 7 July 2007 (CDT)


The Breeniverse Timeline page is only updated through February 13th, 2007. If the page is worth saving, it should probably be updated.--Jonpro 14:56, 17 April 2007 (CDT)

Yes, I was noticing that too. I think a few of the pages are a bit redundant... and as they are all summarizations of the plot, it doesn't really seem reasonable to expect that they will be constantly updated. I feel like the lonelygirl15 page and the Breeniverse Timeline don't really need plot info, as The Story So Far... is kept much more up to date and has the most accurate info? I'm also wondering what the heck is up with the Newcomer Guide, but I guess that's another story? Anyway, perhaps we should just get rid of the timeline page.. and remove plot info from the LG15 page... and really that would pretty effectively "clean it up". I just think it will be easier to keep things up to date and pretty-ful that way. Thoughts? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Zoey (talkcontribs) .
I agree that Lonelygirl15 and Breeniverse Timeline shouldn't really have plot information. From scanning the section titles, it seems like Lonelygirl15 is on the right track: "Revelations of fictionality" (is "fictionality" a word?), "Production Techniques", etc. are the things we need in that article. There is some plot on that page, though, and it probably should be removed. For the Breeniverse Timeline page, I'm not sure we even need as much information as what's there right now. Most of it is simply "____ posts the video _____". We can just look at the video page to find that information. I think the kinds of things that should be on that page are major plot moves like when Bree and Daniel go on the run and other related information like when Bree was born and so on. For The Story So Far..., I like how that looks--very short summaries of the videos that give a nice overview of the plot. And that page is being updated fairly regularly. And I don't have a clue about the Newcomer Guide page, but the all-caps hurts my eyes. Other pages to consider looking at are Catch Up and LGPedia:Welcome. We really need to condense all of this stuff so that it actually makes sense.--Jonpro 21:12, 17 April 2007 (CDT)
Hm, what if we totally got rid of the plot info on Lonelygirl15 and just refered people to The Story So Far... I personally vote for deleting the following pages: Breeniverse Timeline, Catch Up, and Newcomer Guide. I feel like Breeniverse Timeline is redundant... and that the other two are really more "crazy fan things" than actual informative pages. The LGPedia:Welcome looks like it covers the info that Newcomer Guide and Catch Up really should cover and is nice and consice and to the point. Maybe the language can be spiffed up a bit, but other than that.. it really does refer people to the pages that need refering to. Once its cleaned up slightly, I would say we could even go ahead and put it on the main page. I think people might find it helpful. If no one has any objections, maybe you could go ahead and delete those three pages.. and I'm happy to fix up those minor things on LG15 page and the Welcome page. Please, I'd really love people's opinions though!! --Zoey 16:48, 22 April 2007 (CDT)
I'm with you on wanting others' opinions. It's much easier to know if doing something is a good idea when people give their input. Anyway, for Lonelygirl15, deleting the plot info sounds fine as long as we direct people to The Story So Far.... I'll add delete tags to the three pages you mentioned, but I don't think I should delete a page until we've waited a couple days for people to give their thoughts on the issue. I do see some value in Breeniverse Timeline, but perhaps the information that's worth keeping could be merged into other articles. As a matter of fact, LGPedia:Welcome is linked to from the Main Page, but it's hard to see--it's the word "Welcome" at the very top of the page. I think most people probably aren't seeing the link so that page doesn't get as much traffic as would be ideal. If you or anyone else wants to work on Lonelygirl15 and LGPedia:Welcome, that'd be great. I think the thing we lack the most here is actual article writing, so anything we can get in that area is greatly appreciated.--Jonpro 17:52, 22 April 2007 (CDT)
I've always wanted to improve the welcome/help/newcomer section, but I haven't had the time to work on this that I used to. I think redesigning the Breeniverse timeline to only include major events would be preferable to outright deletion. It's hard to keep track, oh when did they first go on the run? When did her dad get shot? etc. Major events would be good to keep track of, but "Bree posted the video What Makes Us Sad?" probably doesn't need to be noted. --JayHenry 11:05, 25 April 2007 (CDT)
That seems to be the consensus that we reached on Talk:Breeniverse Timeline, so I think we'll go with that.

GuillotineCalamity videos

GuillotineCalamity has a bunch of videos that don't have pages yet. If anyone has nothing to do, they can start creating the pages and writing the transcripts.--Jonpro 14:05, 23 May 2007 (CDT)

Eh, this was another one I wasn't sure whether actually needed individual video pages. What do people think? --Zoey 14:27, 23 May 2007 (CDT)
Well, I made a template (that could use major cleanup) for GuillotineCalamity videos at Template:Sister, and started pages for her first two videos, Photography in Motion and file20.mov, and started the GC Seasons page. The job is too exhausting for me. Either delete what I've done, or finish the job. silverX3 17:37, 23 May 2007 (CDT)

Since no one has volunteered for the task, and SilverX3 said to go ahead and delete the pages if no one objects, I think it's safe to just remove the video pages? Does anyone object...? --Zoey 13:10, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

I went ahead and deleted them. --Zoey 18:13, 7 July 2007 (CDT)

Catch Up page

Before we delete Catch Up, it would be good to go through and copy some useful information about some of the videos into their notes sections. See Talk:Catch Up for a discussion of this.--Jonpro 11:22, 25 April 2007 (CDT)

Catch Up page is now gone. I believe we got info from it beforehand, but as I wasn't the one to do the deletion I'm not 100% sure. --Zoey 18:14, 7 July 2007 (CDT)
