Let's try and keep the wiki relative to things that will be useful. Particularly in bringing in new members.

BTW, sticky.

Paraphrased version:
"A dying old guy wants to go to the moon. Some science dude/dudette are like 'Okay! Here's a fake memory!' The old guy dies, thinking he went to the moon and the science dude/dudette gets ca$h flo."

That's a...a masterpiece, bro! You're so talented! I'm green with envy! incredible proud of you! 8)

Thanks. :seraismile: I think so too.

The ff. are needed to complete the first phase of this project:

1. Create new articles related to Q-TBV, TML, and other games made by Freebird Games. Make sure that these articles do not exist at the moment. If possible, complete them. (Try adding pictures).

2. Assign ALL EXISTING articles into its respective categories.

Please do not create forum related articles yet, such as the Double accounts, forum members, etc. That's not what our priority is at the moment.

This first phase should be finished by December 24.

The events can be added to which place necessary.


Is that character list going to go onto the quintessence page directly? It would probably be better to have the main characters on the page, and then a link to a new page with the major and minor characters. That's how they do it in the real wiki, and it would help with trying to scroll through the page (cuz that's a lot of characters)

Just one thing about "copypasta," guys:  It is not necessarily bad to make a reference to someone else's exact words, as long as you do it properly.  You can use reference and citation styles such as MLA's or APA's, and of course, paraphrase; but paraphrasing still has its rules.

I am going to recommend the following resources:

Hope that helps.
