What does another site have to do, really, to get on our little "Friends" list? I just wondered if there were any rules or... what? I thought, since we link Memory Alpha, that it might be appropriate to link the Wookieepedia, seeing as how it's another huge Wiki about a popular SciFi universe (or Space Opera, but let's not split hairs). Anyway... What's the story? --Day (Talk - Admin) 00:03, 31 May 2006 (CDT)

Well.. I created the "friends" section to hightlight sites that have a lot of common elements to each other. Gateworld - Learn about most BSG News Here. MA - A lot of the Actors/Crew have down work in Star Trek and BSG is compared to Star Trek. Wikipedia - Has large sections of just everything. inlcuding the templates, and styles we use on the site. This is my unoffical policy of the friends section bear in mind. I wouldn't just put any old site on this section unless if it did had a significant impact on the subject matter at hand. I don't see alot of Star Wars references in this Wiki. That's why I would not put that site in this section. Plus we have a thing with {{gateworldphoto}} and I think Joe is talking or might soon be talking with {{memoryalphaphoto}}. We use alot of the same common images. --Shane (T - C - E) 00:21, 31 May 2006 (CDT)
Ah. Now I know. Fair enough. --Day (Talk - Admin) 01:56, 31 May 2006 (CDT)
The star wars wiki is totally messed up anyway. Continuity to chopped to shreds. Films, guides, novels, animated series... --Mercifull 03:05, 13 June 2006 (CDT)

Did you know...

So I was thinking of adding a "Did You Know..." section under the "Airdates" section (if for no other reason than that space is not used), but I couldn't figure it out. I have some ides for Did You Know...s, so if someone else has already started working on this, lemme know. Just while I'm thinking of it, I'll post what's in my head now right here. Otherwise I'll forget.

Did You Know...

I thought of some more while I was typing that. Anyway... there's those. --Day (Talk - Admin) 23:37, 2 June 2006 (CDT)

Oh. I just now saw that there's a "Did you know..." section on the RDM portal... Is there a reason not to put it over here and include questions from all continuities? --Day (Talk - Admin) 23:39, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
I still like the idea of "did you know" on the front page. I can add it to the main page project. Under what section is the question. With the news being so long it is really tough. Right now I am working on the cite.php file to see if I can place the refernces in another area (new section on the front page - also see current design) so they would not interfere with the disuption of the news elements with the left side coloum. Plus I think the airdates will get longer once our internationial users start putting up their airdates. So everything will balance out I think for Season 3. --Shane (T - C - E) 23:48, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
I'll get right on it. --The Merovingian (C - E) 07:52, 3 June 2006 (CDT)

Region 4 Season 2 DVD new Slimline Set

Can we please include the new Region 4 release set for 16 August 2006 for Australia [1]. This is an Australian Store. I have made several edits in the Mini series and Season 1 DVD set to include the Region 2, 4, and 5. Im unsure that it includes all episodes, but i would assume it would be the case as for it being Season 2 not Season 2.0, and having a price tag of AU$80 and of course being released after the full season 2 was aired. --Lgamser 23:35, 13 June 2006 (CDT)
