Full Version: Wiki Wcp Helpers Team Being Formed!
GMC Forum > Discussion Boards > VINTAGE GMC > Wiki and Reviews > Wiki Writers
Fran
For the ones who don't know what WCP stands for, check THIS first!

Just sent everyone who showed interest in the project a PM so that you guys can confirm if you want to take part!

Ivan I know you are in, so no PM for you tongue.gif

If anyone else is interested in lending a hand doing some conversions, just PM me! Wiki:Writers are specially welcome as it will be piece of cake for them wink.gif

Soon I'll post a couple templates and examples so that we can start converting Concert and Album reviews too!
In the meantime you can check THIS THREAD to read a couple examples and basic guidelines to convert the Gear Reviews forum into wikis!

Don't forget that it's very important for this to work to act as a team, so please PM me before you start working so I know who is in and I can coordinate our efforts and keep track of what's being done and what not!

Soon I'll make a sticky thread here in the forum containing the full list of people involved in the project, templates, guidelines, etc. in a structured and hopefully easy to read manner smile.gif

EDIT:
See the new, pinned post full of useful info here:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=17972


Thanks all for your time wink.gif
OrganisedConfusion
I'll gladly help. I know my way around the wiki smile.gif
Fran
Awesome O.C. wink.gif
Ivan Milenkovic
I'm in too, I guess this is the formal sign up topic.

P.S. I suggest that people who want to do the wiki translation, write down the articles they want to do, and then you Fran can copy that list in your first post in this topic. This way we could keep track of assigned articles, and prevent 2 users editing the article in the same time, which can result in not being able to edit them properly.

Here are the articles that I'm assigned for:

1. Marshall AVT50X Combo Amp DONE
2. Jim Dunlop CryBaby 535Q Wah Pedal DONE
3. Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble DONE
4. Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive
5. Boss DD-20 GigaDelay
6. Line 6 TonePort UX1 Audio Interface
7. Boss BCB-60 Pedalboard
8. Peavey Generation EXP with ACM Electric Guitar
9. Fender American Stratocaster 60th Anniversary Edition
Fran
Sounds good Ivan wink.gif All those are yours!

As soon as I have the list of people involved in the project (hopefully tomorrow), I'll make a sticky post at the top of the forum containing the members, possible assignments, guidelines, some templates, etc.

We will start doing the Gear reviews conversions, as they are pretty easy, and slowly start assigning more reviews from the other two boards too.

Glad you are with us Ivan wink.gif
Fran
Just in case you don't see it pinned up there, be sure to read this main post:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=17972

Hope that helps you guys to start, should you have any doubts, just ask! wink.gif

Where is the list of what still needs converting and then I can get doing some? smile.gif
Fran
You can choose any review from the gear reviews forum, just make sure that is hasn't been chosen by any other member in the team yet. (Check their lists in this thread). You could also do the same with the Album reviews forum (I just post this morning an easy to follow template, and will do an example Album Wiki review conversion soon).

Soon I'll send a message to the mods of those forums with a list, so they can mark the finished review posts with a symbol in their topic title, and make it easy for us to see what's done and what not!.

ok. Well I will have a look through later and get a list sorted. smile.gif
Fran
Hi all! smile.gif

I'm posting this here too to stress the importance of keeping an eye on this thread:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=17972 (pinned up there in this forum!)

I'm constantly updating it and adding a new reply too including what's new, because there are new important guidelines that are being added thanks to all your great suggestions. Please, keep an eye on it whenever you see there's a new reply, as it will be our main method of communication! (Appart from this thread where we keep the list of articles we are working on or have finished, of course)

The latest addition is this:

- When you create your entry, remember to add the word "Review" at the end of the title. That way if you are doing a conversion of a forum review called "Boss DD3" you should title the wiki as "Boss DD3 Review", to specify that it's a personal review and not an objective article.


(I'm going to change all the wiki review conversions we've done so far so that they all are presented that way, please remember to do this from now on!)


Please keep an eye on that thread from now on, as it will be the only place we'll use to communicate new guidelines/examples/templates and whatever may be needed.

You are doing a great job so far guys! wink.gif
Smikey2006
sorry for the lack of a pm back but im here and ready to work ill select my articles later this week as im rather busy but ill find the time so don't worry smile.gif
Fran
That's great Smikey!, just edit your post above and add your list of to do/ done reviews, and take a look at the pinned post at the top of this forum to check what's going on wink.gif
Fran
Matt, I merged the info of your last post with your previous one in this thread, and erased your last post to avoid duplicated info. Keep updating the list I started for you! wink.gif

Please remember to update your posts to keep our lists of finished articles easy to check, instead of creating a new post each time you finish something new!

Awesome job on Dream Theater review Matt! wink.gif
Fran
Hi there!

Just a short note to let you guys know that I'm sending regular lists of finished articles to the mods of the Gear and Album Review forums so that they mark the threads (using an orange exclamation mark next to the topic title). That way it will be easy for you guys to tell which ones have been done so far.

I send these lists in groups of 10 articles per category, so spect some time between you finish your wiki and the forum thread gets marked though.

We are also removing the duplicated content in the threads and leaving a link to the wiki article in the threads.

Remember to keep an eye on other people's lists of "to do" and "done" articles in this thread to avoid having two people working on the same wikis!

Great job so far! smile.gif

Hey Fran, I just finished converting my first article, but I don't know how to insert a picture. Can you please tell me how to do it? Thanks smile.gif

Sure! It's easy, you can choose to add just the picture at the top of the article, like this:
[[Image:picture.jpg]]


Or you can add the picture aligned to the right, left, or center, with a text at the bottom, like this:
[[Image:picture.jpg|thumb|350px|right|This is a Picture of Blah Blah Blah]]


To upload the picture to the wiki you can follow the link at the end of each wiki page that says "Upload file":
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/inde.../Special:Upload

Hope that helps! wink.gif
Ivan Milenkovic
Thanks a lot mate, I finished my first article, will do next one tomorrow. smile.gif

Now that I've got that hang of it it is not hard at all smile.gif
Fran
I've been experiencing problems with my connection these last couple days, the tech guy came up this morning and fixed the cable-modem so I guess I'm fine again (crossed fingers).

Oh, by the way... Come on wiki-team!!!! laugh.gif, some of you started strong but haven't written much in the last days (weeks!), Oh I know, I know... it's summer, it's sunny who wants to write wikis... well me! (Actually I'm off to have a ride in my bike wink.gif), but I'll do a conversion tonight.

Don't be stressed (well you obviously aren't laugh.gif), just a heads up so you finish the lists of threads you chose, when you find some time smile.gif
I'll keep converting all reviews until all appear in our wiki, so shall you have any doubts, just ask smile.gif
Ivan Milenkovic
I'm doing it one at a time slowly Fran, and was wondering where were you. Now let's keep those conversion flowing! biggrin.gif

Nice Ivan, you are a bussy man wink.gif I know you will finish your list smile.gif
If you check my list of finished articles in this thread you'll see that although I don't post new messages I make a conversion per day, more or less, and update the list daily. Soon I'll start making many more though! smile.gif

Hey Fran, if there's more than one image in the original review should I just choose one and put it in the image box in the standard template (what I have been doing), or should i put them all in?
Fran
Hi Matt!

Put them all in, the more the better, plus we aim to stay true to the original review with all its info (pictures included).
Glad to see you back too smile.gif
Ivan Milenkovic
My list is progressing slowly Fran, I hope I'm doing everything right with conversion. When I finish I will start with linking smile.gif

Geezz! You guys have been quite busy over here. smile.gif Keep up the good work, I for one, am well appreciative of your efforts as I'm sure others are as well! smile.gif

Thanks man!, it takes some time but we will eventually cover all current reviews and add them in the wiki smile.gif
Matt23
Hey Fran I've started adding all the images from the reviews to the wiki and i was going to go back and do it to all the reviews i only put one image in, but they're all gone and just have a link to the wiki page. Is there any way i could get those images back so i could put them in the review.
Fran
I'm afraid not Matt. Be sure to include all pictures in any review from now on smile.gif

Edit: Thanks for the new entries by the way! wink.gif Keep them coming!
Matt23
Hey Fran just a small question, on the Ibanez 2550e review i think it should be the Ibanez RG 2550e Review so could you change the title?

Cheers Matt

Another question, say you have the phrase "single coil pickup" in the article and you want to link it to the page titled "single coil pickups"" is there a way to do this like [[single coil pickup]] or would you have to do an external link? Hope this makes sense.

I'm afraid that can only be solved through external link. If it was the other way around you could do it like this: [[single coil pickup]]s. (Happens often too). Truth is we should create our entries in singular if possible to avoid this kind of situation. I can always change the article titles to singular if you guys let me know the ones you find smile.gif

Edit: Just redirected the plural entry to singular. Both should work now wink.gif

Also remember adding [[Category: Bands]] to album reviews instead of [[Category: Gear]], I changed a couple entries.

Thanks for your entries Matt you are doing great! smile.gif
Fran
Hey what's up wiki team! Anybody alive! laugh.gif
Come on people convert some stuff from the album/gear review and I'll give you each one of these!:



How could you say NO!

And remember that if you don't this little fellow here might visit you in the middle of the night...

Scary huh? laugh.gif

Convert some stuff, write some new articles or easy suggested entries... whatever!, you can do it!, takes just a few minutes and every time we write a new wiki a kitty is saved!.

Help me from ending up like this guy here:

I've already got cookies but that blue guy looks scary. unsure.gif I'll do some tomorrow. Sorry ive not done any for so long.

Edit: I'd better do some otherwise you'll end up like a rapper. (or do you mean lonely) wink.gif

Sure we are hiring! cool.gif
There are quite a few things you can do to help:

1) Create your own articles, anything guitar related: bands, gear, guitarists... you name it!
2) Create some of the suggested entries
3) Take part in the WCP (wiki centralization project) which is what this thread is about

Any of those options will eventually lead you to qualify as a GMC Wiki:er, read about it here:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=19336

If you are in need of some basic info to create a wiki article, read here:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...?showtopic=9117

As for the suggested entries, you can find them here:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=18918

Info about what the WCP is about (converting forum review threads into wiki entries) can be found here:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=17972

All this stuff is pinned at the top of our wiki-forum. Shall you have any doubts just ask smile.gif

jer
cool.

I'll look into it!
Fran
Hey team, just a short note to let you guys know I'll be away until sunday on a trip to Belgium, so I won't be able to check my private messages till I'm back. I'll be too bussy drinking good beer and eating nice chocolates! laugh.gif cool.gif

See you guys in a couple days wink.gif, write loads of stuff in the meantime, some of you are a bit short on entries lately! tongue.gif
