Talk:King Stephen Art Gallery

From eRepublik Official Wiki

Articles in progress should be done in the user's sandbox. What is the purpose of a wiki page for this "gallery" aren't you just recreating the gallery here, thus redundant? Also, what is it's value to the greater eRepublik community. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 16:41, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

I'd like to think that the erep wiki is a place for all knowledge and information available to everyone, in the same place. This "gallery" serves a large purpose as a reference point for much of the graphical art present in the eUK today. Ontop of this, it's a publicly editable source for the continued graphical history of the eUK, and its ease of editablity and restructuring makes it the erep wiki an excelent place to put it.
Ontop of this, you could say that its a place to check whether images are already available on the wiki, so it might well serve as a point of contact for wiki article editors looking for valid images :) The "contents" feature of the wiki means its a perfect place for information to be easily found, and once it's done there'll be a hell of alot of descriptive and explanatory info for each image, which would only add to the knowledgebase :3 -- John F Baker 21:04, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
But, is this stuff already on another webpage? --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 21:44, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
In a forum thread, which can only be edited by one person, which offers minimal formatting, navigation and customizability, not to mention, without the space for any informational detail apart from name/date/artist. As a forum thread, it's also under threat of later deletion/moving etc, and the images are all hosted in different places, which would mean that imagery would be easily lost. The forum thread was only a first step - it was always planned to be moved to the wiki (if you have seen the MoHa discussions) -- John F Baker 21:59, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
