nothing new since june?
Are we not going to add Exterminal and Free Rebel Art to the website list yet due to the fact that they are [seem] nonfunctional as of now? And instead wait and see if other functional websites come before these are functional? Or should we just add them now (as we are going in the order of when we found them...)?

Either way you want to set up the main page, something needs to be done about it... The timeline doesn't fit with what's new in the NINworld (could cover his leaving Interscope up until Discipline) instead of catagorize year zero... Also i was thinking about some sort of poll on the front page for users (IE: which is your favorite album? what year did you become a fan... blah blah) and have them up for a month or something just to take up space on the main page, but also becauses polls are pretty cool... (Can we cange 'Pre-order' to order ghosts, and mention discipline in the what's new section as well?) thanks and tell me what you think [[User:Jgrizzy89|Jgrizzy89]] 12:02, 24 April 2008 (PDT)
  
Isnt there another page (not sure if its a branch off of one of the listed ones) that shows the history of the US in the Year Zero concept? And when you pull the left side of the screen over you get different repsonses to each section? Where is that page, and is it one to be listed (remember, Im not sure if its located off of another page, so this question follows suit...)?
+
:I agree. I was looking for some info on The Slip and Ghosts, and I actually expected it to be right there on the main page. In stead there was this overwhelmingly long list of information on Year Zero I didn't want to know about, and I had to search for the new releases. About jacking the [http://www.mansonwiki.com/ MansonWiki] Main Page: go ahead. When the MW just started we took a lot of inspiration (that is, we copypasted a lot) from the NIN wiki.

== Track Navigation ==

It seems to me that the song pages would benefit from '''Previous Track''' / '''Next Track''' links in or below the reference box at right.  Wikipedia does some stuff like this, but I think the "Strong Bad Email nav" over at hrwiki.org is a good model for us.  The code is simple: <pre>{{sbenav|88|mile|local news}}</pre>and the ease of use is impressive.  Does anyone have good enough wiki knowledge to set up something like this?

: Out of what I understand, something like that has to be added admin-side, though I'm not sure if it has to be coded in or if Wiki has built-in support for adding stylized and new tagging like that.

This talk page is for the main page of the wiki, not for the wiki itself. For discussion about the wiki itself, check out the ETS thread for it, or talk to me if you need to.


I've been thinking this for a while but have been too busy to attend to it... We should either bring the main page up-to-date with when things were discovered (as we have up to April 19th I think) - Or come up with something else to say on the main page so it doesn't just end the truncated information at the 19th...
