The Shivering Isles Redesign Project is an effort to update all pages in the Shivering Isles namespace to a consistent and high-quality standard. Please note any pages you have reworked where they appear in the "Progress" sections.
To better tackle the task, the pages have been divided in 6 sub-categories, each with an editor responsible.
Task: A lot of the quest pages at the moment are a mess: overlong, full of unnecessary details and with oversized bugs and notes sections. We are aiming for a complete makeover and an almost complete cull of the latter sections. These two examples should give an idea; while these two pages are examples of what to do with an interesting quest.
Task: Rewriting all the places pages in consistency with the guidelines of the OPRP. As most dungeons are complex and quest-related thorough checking before, during and after the quest is necessary. These two pages are good examples of what we're aiming for.
Task: Similarly to places, rewriting all NPC pages in consistency with the guidelines of the OBNPCRP. The inhabitants of the Isles tend to have complex schedules and tons of dialogue, along with being for a large part in some way related to a quest. No-one ever said it would be easy ;) These three pages are good examples of a completed page.
For the progress table below, if you've added all CS info add your name to the CS box and do the same for in-game. As some bits (spells, factions) can only be checked in the CS, once that is done and the page completed tick the final box (assuming in-game has been done too!). For reasons of spacing, only the editor that as done "most" of the each section should be added, unless there is no clear author.
Generic and VIP NPCs
Task: This is for real heavy-weights! ;) Generic NPCs need to have pages detailing stats and wares either in table fashion or, if there are few of them, with a series of NPC summary boxes. These two pages are examples of the two different approaches. VIP NPCs are extensively researched and present a vast amount of information, especially quest-related. These two pages show the high standards we're aiming for.
Images & Maps
Task: Now that all overlays have been added to place maps and rpeh has kindly made the region maps the two main tasks are maps for settlements and correcting the eventual error in overlays. Concerning the former see here. Images on the other hand are a much fuller task, we need new images for places, quests, creatures and NPCs. Also, we should try to standardise image names as we go along (i.e. SI-npc, SI-place etc.) A page for image requests covering all the above categories can be found here.
Leader: Kalis Agea
Task: This includes creating new Lore pages for the Shivering Isles, and formatting and checking existing ones.
Task: This includes all other SI pages that don't fall in the above, mostly involves checking CS stats and rewriting. This can be kept till last.
