Organizing Year Zero

Due to the massive nature of the World of Year Zero, organization of information is paramount to gaining a complete understanding of what is known up to date. As such, I am putting togeather this guide to organize all Year Zero content on the website, including a hierarchy of the main research pages and standards for various types of recurring details in Year Zero (such as websites). In this manner all sites will be consistant in their style, easily accessable, and there will be no redundant pages.

General Standards

Splitting Articles As a rule of thumb, when a subsection of any site gains more than 4-5 of it's own subsections it should be split into it's own article and replaced on it's parent page with a short description and a link.

Year Zero Name Any major top-end page name (ie Research, Story, People, etc) should be distinguised from the rest of the Wiki content by adding "Year Zero" to the name.

Information Ordering Any subject in which the information is not proven to be dependant on numerology or chronology should use alphabetical order.

Year Zero Research This will be the consolidated center of all information regarding Year Zero. The very top of the hierarchy.

Year Zero Research

  • Discovery (Include details about how Year Zero was first discovered)
  • Year Zero Timeline (Include basic details about change in date system)

(added by John Stuplich/Asmotron): I'm new to adding to a wiki, but here goes. I was reading lyrics in the Year Zero booklet and spotted some letters in red, instead of white. I read through the book, and wrote them all down, and here is what I got:

Cover through Hyperpower!: (nothing, no red letters)

The Beginning of the End: five seven

Survivalism: three a

The Good Soldier: seven five

Vessel: seven three

Me, I'm Not: seven five

Capital G: seven two

My Violent Heart: seven 0 (zero)

The Warning: two 0 (zero)

God Given: five three

Meet Your Master: three a

The Greater Good: 3 (three) three

The Great Destroyer: three nine

Another Version of the Truth: (nothing, no red letters)

In This Twighlight: three seven

Zero Sum: five seven

Credits: three four

Thanks: five zero

I'm not sure what this means, and it is way past my bed time.

Comments: Remember that too many subpages would be exactly the opposite of what we have now - too little info on each page. If you're careful about that, this will turn out great! --Tonyconverse! 22:55, 16 April 2007 (PDT)

Thats why I made the point that if a subpage gets too big it's turned into it's own article. and simply referenced by it's parent. The Research page will probally be the only one with alot of subpages because it's the top of the hierarchy and has all the sections that cannot be consolidated into another parent section. I'm moving pages and information around as I work on this as well to conform with the new standards. Hopfully people will follow the pattern. :D BurnHavoc 23:03, 16 April 2007 (PDT)
Good job with this. A big problem I've been noticing is that a lot of the NIN pages have been formatted, edited, perfected, yet a lot of the Year Zero Arg wiki pages are left unorganized. A major problem with this is the slew of new arg sites EVERY WEEK (what was it, 7 this week?!). I haven't been able to do much in terms of editing and adding info on both sides of a link, besides adding the lyrics from the songs that are on the new arg sites. I haven't been able to add anything major to the wiki since I'm in the middle of moving, but message my user page or leave it here on how I can help and I'll get crackin. -Velvolver 06:57, 17 April 2007 (PDT)
