You're doing a great job. I wish I had more time to help. Thanks for carrying the team Wink

Oh, cool Smile. Patrolling is something I was totally unaware of.

I went and created pages that actually matched the layout look of the old ride pages originally and things have just morphed as jetstar2 has started adjusting things to implement how the wiki naturally pulls information together.

As long as it ends up similar to the old Rides Page, I'll be happy. I'm happy to know the current look isn't final and it's still being built! Smile

Bumping this useful information, it will probably drive everybody who encounters it crazy if they don't know.

Sorry.
You can delete the old version.
I'm not very smart.

There's nothing to be sorry for. It drove me crazy, I believe it drove Will crazy too, so I just anticipate that everybody will be confused by it. It's really annoying unless you know what's going on. When you upload a new version, it looks like you just uploaded the old one, because it still shows the old one under that filename for an hour or so. Just letting you know you're not crazy.

Now that the forum upgrade is finished, I want to start working on the wiki some more. I can't let jetstar2 have all the fun. Happy I was wondering if it would be appropriate to make a to-do list page on the wiki where we can put in what we want to see added or improved. I made a small list earlier in this discussion thread, and I was thinking of expanding on it and then beginning to work on the list and get content added to the wiki.

Let me know if this sounds like a good idea, or if we could do something similar.

lol, sorry if I get carried away with it sometimes Smile But yes, any kind of useful internal page, such as a to-do list can be created in the Lagoon is Fun Wiki namespace, so when you create the page do it as "Lagoon Is Fun Wiki:To Do List" or whatever name you'd like to give it. Putting it in that namespace keeps it separate from the regular info pages.

==Wiki Happenings==

A newly completed full walk-through on using the wiki has been added.

The to do list has been automated, and there's lots to do.

It appears to me that this LA Times article is heavily sourced from the LiF Wiki and includes info from the following pages:

Cannibal
Lagoon
Zierer
Dal Freeman
Roller Coaster
Rides

I'm going to finish up a couple more pages and take a break for a while.

A section of the video I have on Youtube mentioning Dal might be good for the wiki if you'd like

Oh, I hadn't seen that video before (the Arrow one). that's really awesome and it needs to be on the wiki. Thanks!
