Which Ars Magica Wiki site is the best model for our main community page?
You may have noticed that I haven't updated Project: Redcap in several
months. There are two reasons for that; first, I haven't received any
mail announcing new pages. Second, I, Pitt Murmann, Yair, and a couple
of others have been working for several months on a successor to
Project: Redcap that is a Wiki.
Very recently Yair pointed out that Atlas Games posted on their Web site
a link to a totally unrelated Ars Magica Wiki. I didn't know about that
project and it seems like a major duplication of effort.
My belief is that Ars Magica does need a fan-driven Wiki, but that it
doesn't need several. We should merge the contents of the sites and
retire one of them.
The site we've been working on is hermesweb.ekkaia.org. Probably
we should have gone public with this a while ago but I've been having
trouble finding time to work on it steadily due to work and personal
I'm going on a much-needed vacation later today but when I return in
about a week, I'd like to be able to read back over this thread and see
what people like and don't like about each of the two projects and what
we should do.
Eventually my plan is that the www.redcap.org domain should become a
Wiki (with all the current, static HTML content migrated into it). It is not hard to move a Wiki to a new address, but combining the contents of two or more Wikis is a painstaking manual process and ought to be done sooner rather than later.
