Melvins Wiki
« on: October 09, 2006, 10:59:46 AM »
I've started one finally

I've begun with tour dates and the bio just because its easy copy and paste stuff, although more formatting is needed and i'd like some uniformity on the tour dates pages in general allowing for a linking to each individual date for anyone who attending to speak to anything regarding their melvins experience. anyone who has ever posted a review of a show on the board should feel free to repost it on the wiki page.
This thing is really easy to use and I may end up migrating most of the site over to it as a community based effort to keep the info as up to date as possible is the best idea in my opinion. If no one wants to mess with it that is fine as the main reason I installed it was for more ease on my end to disseminate info as I receive them.

some pages to start with for example-
http://www.themelvins.net/wiki/index.php?title=Melvins_Tour_Dates
http://www.themelvins.net/wiki/index.php?title=Melvins_Tour_Dates_2006
http://www.themelvins.net/wiki/index.php?title=Melvins   --- Needs Updating obviously, feel free!

are you referring to the biography or are you saying that my efforts to create a site specific wiki in and of itself are pointless?

No it's not a waste of time.

The Tour lists you have started are going to be an incredable data base.

The general content of the bio and the links you have planned for it look good too.

Somehow I missed that Melvins interview in the Stranger last month.

The format makes easy to look up interviews. Great stuff.

i like it a lot.  i edited an interview a little bit because buzz's responses were sort of nestled into the interviewer's questions and it was hard to discern which was which. 

awesome!
