Addressing your specific concerns/suggestion regarding Lyssian Archive idea

Thanks again for your feedback. I just want to take something I already posted on GuildWiki talk:Lyssian Archives, but re-phrased to work with your comments directly (which is why I'm posting it here instead of the project talk page).

The current iteration of my idea involves all creative articles to start from the User namespace, but have Template:Open edit applied to them. Through a communal process, articles that people like gets put on a portal page (the Lyssian Archive's main/front page), and get moved from the user namespace to the LA namespace. This addresses the LA namespace flood concern by mitigating it via the User namespace.

One can argue that this doesn't really change anything, just moving the problem from one place to another. But I would like to champion the idea that, currently 80% of the stuff in the User namespace and user talk space are already pointless random crap that others don't care about anyways; and this process might increase that percentage to 95%, but allows the gems to surface better. Thus, there *is* a difference in having an influx of worthless crap in the LA namespace vs the user namespace.

Why not keep everything in the user namespace while having that portal? I want to champion for the idea that a separate namespace for the decent quality articles helps define a focus for Guild Wars-related collaborative creative writing (by not having a user name stuck in front of it); having those articles outside the user namespace also helps easily distinguish them from the 80% of random junk currently in user namespaces; finally it can be used as a incentive for articles to be improved to be "LA-worthy".

The Builds thing failed at GuildWiki, but perhaps the problem was that the viability of Builds is subject to player skill/style while still need to be objectively useful, and much of the tension often comes from a mix of the two. Creative writing has a clearer split between what falls under subjectivity (whether readers like it or not) and what falls under objectivity (whether material is appropriate, spelling/grammar, coherence, etc). Thus I believe creative writing has the potential to not fail as builds had.

I am hoping, with this project, to:

  1. Provide an alternative for people who are hanging out on the wiki not playing the game (and have no information to update the main article space) something to do that isn't just meaninglessly spamming each other's talkpages.
  2. Promote Guild Wars-related collaborative creative writing (you can put personal single-author fiction anywhere, like fanfiction.net or something; right now the only other potential location for Guild Wars-related collaborative creative writing would be GWW, though I'm not quite sure how receptive they are to that idea).

I hope this can reassure some of your concerns. I'm interested in hearing more of your feedback, which may be able to help me refine my ideas better. -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 10:32, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
