Googling reveals an Andrew P anturescu in Toronto, with an interest in hockey and stuff. Sounds like it could be legit to me.

EDIT: Okay, my theory here is that the claim is legit, and the filtering of the word is simply due to an admin taking the most expedient manner for a fix and retroactively adjusting all the pages via the word filter. We should simply change all references to Ponikarovsky, I think, and we'll be clear.

I've come across some unpleasant page vandalism on the wiki. If you're doing this, now's the time to knock it off. If you have something to say about a character, the proper section is the comments section. If you have no clue what I'm talking about, then you have no need to worry.

So, I fixed all the thread lists for the rescued people.

I also noticed very few people are actually linking their threads.

Everyone, please take a moment to dig through your old threads and link them together properly. It makes it nearly impossible to follow characters otherwise, and if someone's interested enough in your stuff to check it out, it's nice to do all you can to make it easy on them.

Sounds cool/solid ideas all around.

Also, can we maybe add the V4 terrorists and notable STAR members to the important characters page when we get it fixed up? I can help there if needed.

Maybe we can have a secondary handler page where handlers are bullet-pointed and templated and such?

Also, I'm for leaving comments as-is and just prodding people to say more if they want to. I feel like a large part of the comment dearth comes from people not reading a ton, though.

I am all on board for all the other reforms.

So, I just had an idea. How about this:

We combine the pages, as follows. On top is the template. Below is whatever you want. That way, individuality is preserved,a nd information is easily accessible. I am thinking as follows:

Quote:
 

Blah blah template

template

more template

~SECTION BREAK~

personal stuff!

pictures!


That seems like it hits everyone's concerns, right?

Haha. There would be no need for that. I keep my full name off the boards for privacy reasons. It'd just be a place to put whatever you want, like the profiles are right now.

Proposed Template! (Shamelessly stolen from James and edited to suit current needs)

User Name:
Group: (i.e. handler, staff, etc)
Versions Active:
v4 Characters:
v3 Characters:


That's really all I think the template needs. Just throw that at the top of each page and give no-nonsense links, then dive straight into the fun stuff below.

I love it. Also, I made Help a wiki page, so we can link it there.

Just a note: Kyle and I have been working on prettying up the terrorist section/giving important terrorists (like the V4 island crew) their own pages. The old page was an awful, crammed mess, and since we've got a good number of distinct characters on the AT, it seemed like a good idea to make them easier to learn about/follow.

I'm pretty sure all the thread lists are up to date (excluding post-game, which I didn't dig through for wiki purposes yet).

I'd late to take this opportunity to remind everyone to link your threads. I care enough to dig through tons of submenus to find where characters went. Readers probably won't. At least half the characters I checked had dead ends. That doesn't hurt anyone but you. Everyone should re-skim all their characters to fix any empty links. A note: just a thread title is pretty useless, given that we've got hundreds of threads in V4 alone.
