Tom Clancy Wiki: Ideas


The Tom Clancy Wiki is always open for new suggestions to better the wiki, so if you have a specific idea or request you would like to be fulfilled, let us know using the talk space below. This page is for ideas about the wiki in general. Propose the idea on the relevant talk page if your idea is about a specific article, template, policy, etc.

Note that if there is no consensus, an idea will not be implemented. Furthermore, the idea has to be both practical as well as creative, in order for it to be effectively enforced. Ideas will be removed from this list when either fulfilled or denied (decided by Administrators) and placed into an archived page for later viewing.

Ideas for the Tom Clancy Wiki Edit

Example Idea Edit

Nominated by:  SawBucks  Talk  Contribs 

  • Initial comments regarding the idea go here. This is where you should make your case regarding the idea.

Game Walkthroughs Edit

Nominated By:  SawBucks  Talk  Contribs 

  • This is just a way to see what other people think. I think with a site about Tom Clancy and all the games that have been created around the different series, it would be important to add video game walkthroughs for the site. But what would be best, should we find the "best" walkthrough, contact the creator and ask if we can add it, OR, should we create our own from other users, this is something that would make us more unique in the long run.
    • Unsure: I can't make up my mind, asking for others would be easier but having our own would make a better site, but it would take someone that is really willing to add EVERY detail from the games.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  23:37, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Unsure: Good idea, but is it feasible? I think this is something extra... -- RoseMary  Talk  Contribs  20:39, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
      • Comment: That's kinda what I was shooting for. We have enough room to include every single detail from the TC universe. You could even create a page on those advertisements that can be seen around all the games (e.g. Nokia...). It's not like we're going to run out of article space.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  20:07, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • I started the process already, so far I've been getting the walkthroughs from people who have already created on on sites such as GameFaqs. This is only a "if we need to" thing however. People should still be urged to create their own and post them with all the details a complete walkthrough would include. The walkthroughs we choose/create should include any alternate possible routes that can be taken as well (the Splinter Cell games feature this option often). See Category:Walkthrough for some examples.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  22:45, September 16, 2009 (UTC)

Gallery Edit

Nominated By:  RoseMary  Talk  Contribs 

  • Do we have already a gallery? We could add some great pictures to it and make a gallery on the front page.
    • Agree: Not too much work and nice make pictures make nice page :D -- RoseMary  Talk  Contribs  20:44, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
      • Already Have:If you goto Category:Images and click on one of the subcategories, all the images are displayed in a gallery for easy listing and viewing.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  19:58, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
      • Comment: There are some wiki gallery's that can be used to display groups of images and there is also a way to make a random image pop up on a daily basis along with some information about it for the main page. As for the gallery you you should be able to see how to make one in the help section as well as the image sections of the wiki, if you need any more help with the subject just let me know.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  22:41, September 16, 2009 (UTC)

Calendar Edit

Nominated by:  RoseMary  Talk  Contribs 

  • We could add a calendar and add all the releases and happenings of Tom Clancy
    • Agree:Much work but is still possible to make it, maybe in the future. -- RoseMary  Talk  Contribs  19:26, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
      • Unsure: It actually wouldn't be that difficult but I'm not to sure how helpful it would be. It seems to me that it may be blank a lot of the time. There are a few things due to be released, but even those don't have exact dates yet, just estimated ranges of time. Conviction will be sometime in Q1 around march and the Splinter Cell movie is due just sometime in 2010.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  22:37, September 16, 2009 (UTC)

"On This Day"Edit

Nominated by:  SawBucks  Talk  Contribs 

  • With the new Timeline project we're working on, it's reminded me of an "On This Day" feature I've noticed on several wiki's already. They basically set up a "program" that displays what happened in the past for their wiki's topic on the current date directly onto their main page. Other than any agree's or disagree's anyone may have, if anyone knows or can find out how to go about this it would be greatly appreciated. The timeline is starting to grow rather large, so dates shouldn't really turn out to be an issue. Other than that I'll also look into this myself to see if I can find anything out.
    • Agree: As per above.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  07:07, September 30, 2009 (UTC)
      • Nevermind: Unless anyone has any reason's why the template shouldn't be used, everything is in order. It was actually pretty simple. The template can be seen at Template:OnThisDay, but it's going to take just as long to be a decent setup then it will for the timelines to get done. With everything that takes place on so many days in the TC universe, this may just work out for us.--07:34, September 30, 2009 (UTC)
