Site cleanup- stub removal, quotes, OA vs DC, et al

Just a lowdown of what comes to mind about finishing the content sections of the Wiki.

1. An absurd number of stubs that are not stubs clutter the wiki. I'm holding from removing the "stub" designation from several of these episodes for the time being, but it remains somewhat misleading that so many fleshed-out articles should be stubs.

2. Quotes. Several of the episodes that go under the "stub" designation seem to be a little short on the quotes side. Now what quotes make the cut and what don't remains to be seen, but IMHO quotes are not so important to the article that a shortage of quotes qualifies the article as a stub.

3. Serious unfinished business. Less than two weeks ago, Ramiel had no image at all, episode 21 and 23 have unfinished OA vs DC comparisions.

Now I can fix the OA vs DC part of it and remove the stubs if it is agreed that they aren't stubs any longer, but I can't do anything about the EoE part of it.

Another important thing: V, once you get your real-world stuff finished, could you give us some official referencing guidelines? At the moment everybody's just using their own random systems and it's a real mess (sources in brackets, no sources mentioned at all, sources listed at the bottom of a page but without any cohesive links to the main text, etc.).

Also, is the Fan Service sandbox article still needed? I think all the current contributors already have a fair understanding of how Mediawiki works, and the Boot Camp page covers much of the basics.

Since this is clean-up related: Could V or somebody please delete the following items:

*Image:Andromeda strain hexagonal pattern.jpg
*Image:Episode 13 Ireul's A.T. Field.jpg

(This is kinda important, because that was a rather huge fuck-up on my part.)

*Image:Blood+_ambassador.jpg

(Botched the upload.)

My old experimental stubs:

*The Super Dimension Fortress Macross (won't need a specific page)
*Gunbuster (won't need a specific page, I think)
*Space Runaway Ideon (not my stub (IIRC) but could probably be nuked as well)

Also, the stub for "2001" has been nuked, but the talk page is still there.

And another newer, needless page:

*Doujinshi (see my comments on the talk page)

Thank you.

I can't find the 2001 Talk page; please give a link

I deleted the pictures of the Andromeda strain cells but you should actually load another image of them back up; that comparison of them to Iruel cells was a good idea

Crap, I managed to slate wrong images for destruction. Luckily Ursus caught me on that.

It's these two suckers that need to go:

I suggest we remove the last remaining bits of chanspeak from the site by

- Renaming the SAUCE-template to a more universal SOURCE-template
- Axing "Sauce" from the Geektionary
- Renaming "End of Evangelion Lulz" to "Miscallaneous End of Evangelion humor" or something (assuming such a page is actually needed at all).

Also, those shipping example images in the Geektionary are drifting all over the place, at least on my browser.

The template "Unreferenced" is still protected. There's a lot of protected stuff that I'd gladly change if Reichu or another sysop removed the protection. Speaking of sysop...

Now that Sysops have apparently been appointed, can we proceed with the chanspeak purge?

Things left to do:

- Renaming "End of Evangelion Lulz" to "Miscallaneous End of Evangelion humor" or something (assuming such a page is actually needed at all).

Question: Why restrict the "lulz" page to EOE? There are pleanty of really strange theories about the entire series that we could list.

Mostly because I thought we'd end up with more than one page for "lulz". I wasn't thinking of wacky theories when I created that, either, but just humorous snippets from forum posts and the like. We never really did get around to archiving the good ol' fun.

The "sauce" template is now rather different (Using an old line that V had in mind for another template), with an image of Gendo to boot.

And "End of Evangelion lulz" has been renamed.

End of Evangelion Lulz moved to Miscellaneous End of Evangelion humor!

*thinks end of evangelion lulz sounded better*

On a related note the "Rei's emotions" page should be renamed to something else, maybe just Analysis of Rei Ayanami (a less boring title than that would be better), so it nutshells all the stuff that's already there because the article doesn't talk about Rei's emotions but just Rei in general.

"Character Analysis of Rei Ayanami" or "Rei's character: In Depth" or "Rei's Character" would be likely alternatives. "Rei's Character" would be the simplest, I think.

It was rather tongue-in-cheek, wasn't it? I wonder if that isn't entirely inappropriate for a humor page. (And speaking of humor pages, we ought to make a public thread or something asking people to post submissions of things that might be archived on them.)

On a related note the "Rei's emotions" page should be renamed to something else

"Rei Ayanami (In-Depth)" (dunno if the dash is required) seems appropriate. The title SHOULD begin with "Rei Ayanami", in any case.

I'd like to go in depth in Rei if you know what I mean. :hurr:
Also, when I put my socks on this morning I couldn't help but think of them as giant foreskins. Damn you!

Reichu wrote:(dunno if the dash is required)

I think it is... Oh, found a neat link on that - http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/indepth.html

The Rei articles I've written really need to be sorted out, because I can't write the in-betweens at all - all I can do is write information out as a list, how to string it together nicely and make it actually readable is beyond my capabilities in English - my mind just doesn't work like that.
