I was trying to pick some locations for a game that takes place in the MS world and I was trying to recall all the, or many, of the locations mentioned in the books....and that made me wonder if anyone of the fanboys/girls had done a MorningStar Saga Wiki yet.

I think one was attempted. I remember there actually being a website however no one filled any info out on it. I actually remember seeing a link to it. I also remember seeing the empty page! Search the forums it might still be here somewhere! It wold be nice if there was one!

James is right. One was started but never really filled out. Maybe we should write one.

Dammitt people, get on it!  It could be an invaluable game/writing resource. 

And I need the info to proceed with my plans to take over the world.   I need 12 locations.....now....chop chop.

A Wiki sounds like a good idea. I'm pretty sure I have some webspace that I could lend to such an endeavor.

So...the next step is for someone to step forward and say, "Hey, I'll make the webpage."   Me?  No, I have low to no patience to deal with that shit, or understanding how to make it happen.  I'm a 'tard on that webpage stuff.

Then, a bunch of the one's who become well versed in the first two books needs to enter shit about locations, people, events, and stuff...........

New fans typing in a google/yahoo search would stumbling across that wiki and you guys/gals/things would have the chance to help them learn more about the trilogy..........which we all know is REALLY one of the better zombie series out there.

No one needs to use webspace as far as I'm aware. We can use wiki's webspace. I believe we just need to start and fill out an article. I'd do it but honestly, when it comes to wikis, there's so much obscure information on these pages that I practically have to rely on you guys to pick out WHICH obscure information is important.

But I could write, like, the sections on the virus and the behavior of the infected, if you want.

Yeah Wiki is already there somone just needs to start a 'Morningstar Saga' or 'Morningstar Strain' page and start making additions.

I know that much, but have never made a wiki page before nor have I edited one so I will be no good for the start or the editing, but I will be happy to give my 2 cents on what should be included.

you could actually make a Wiki page for The Morningstar strain. Describe it or put whatever Z feels is important. Have you ever noticed on a wiki page that there will be links for something else related to that article? For examples movies or books there are links to sequels or characters! There could be a page for each book and character as well if anyone wanted to go into it that deeply!

Ok, so I registered on the wiki today.  I thought the wiki was done in html markup, but I'm not seeing that.  I'm off tomorrow, so I'll see what I can tinker around with.

I thought the idea that was presented was an entirely new wiki-site just for the Morningstar Saga, along the lines of Wookiepedia, or Memory Alpha, not just a page on Wikipedia. Either idea is good though.

Anyone start anything? I've got some content written up. Not much, but some.

Cant images be stuck on there as well? I know this site has a few pics on it. Maybe this would be a good time for some well-done fan art? Or just actual images of the locations perhaps (Sharm-el-shiekh, etc) . Depending how big we want this thing to get

I have never used Wiki before.  I have no idea how it works, but I just signed up for an account and am going to start a 'user' page where I can mess with the page in my personal 'user' space so I can get used to how to actually make a page on there.

I do have a degree in IT so hopefully that helps me, but it has been a minute since I have done anything other than fix my computer when it gets screwy.

If anyone else already has a 'user' page started let me know.

I was going to call it Morningstar Saga as opposed to Morningstar Strain as I believe the 'Saga' encompasses the whole thing and there could always be a link to 'Morningstar Strain' which encompasses the actual 'virus'.

I may need some time as I have just set an account up.  I have time to kill at work.

I have to say, since I was off today I decided to drink and play Fallout 3 instead......and a few games of online Monolopy, found here:

http://host.exemplum.com/hasbro/monopoly_express/monopoly_express.html

As for the wiki, I was thinking the easy thing to do, would be to find a page that is already created and copy it's format, which you can do as a registered member by doing an "edit" and then cut and paste it.  Just change the words around and we'll have an instant wiki......sure, it's lame, but I'm a dispatcher, not a IT geek.

I actually like the idea of modeling the page after something laready done.

I suggest:

Of course we'll be gentle....we'll even give ya kiss.  

It looks good.  I was thinking of something like:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_the_Living_Dead

but, something with an exsisting book/saga oriented format already would be good too.

They deleted my page!

I just sent a 'talk' message to 'Deb' and told her it was not a blatant attempt at advertising!

WTF!?
