2004-09-07 [Lord Kügenheim]: I think it would be a good idea to make a badge for the wiki pages if they got Featured Wiki. it would be nice.... (if this is already thought up then ignore me)

2004-09-07 [Ocean Dreaming]: We disagree. We don't want to have to police every wiki-page to make sure that they haven't stolen a badge.

2004-09-09 [Sunrose]: Does the person who made the wiki get a badge?

2004-09-09 [True, plain and simple]: No.

2004-09-09 [Sunrose]: Lol, it seems like I ask the same question which i probably am, but I would think there is a difference between badging the owner or the wiki.

2004-09-09 [True, plain and simple]: There is, but since many people can work on wiki-pages, it isn't as effective to give out badges.

2004-09-09 [Sunrose]: Yes but only one can be page owner.

2004-09-09 [True, plain and simple]: No, not true. Just because someone 'started' a page does not mean that they are the only 'owner' of it. Having your name in that box means jack if you haven't done anything to better the page since the first go round the way I see it. Anyway, no badges.

2004-09-09 [Sunrose]: In that cases it doesn't, but there are wiki's where the actual owner does the work. Ok, take it easy! All is good and well..just wanted to know arguments for it, not looking for a badge myself..

2004-09-10 [Ocean Dreaming]: And we can't judge that all that easily. Regular badge giving is easy, but it's too complicated for wiki awards. I -think- there's something about it on thetp-do list, but I dunno... We're not handing out badges until there is a way to give them to wiki-pages without having to patrol every page to catch unauthorised use.

2004-09-10 [Sunrose]: Ok..

2004-09-10 [Ocean Dreaming]: We're also working on a FAQ page, so if you have any questions (apart from the above asked one, as that's the main reason we're making a FAQ) - shoot. ^-^ I'm not too great at thinking up/remembering questions.

2004-09-10 [Sunrose]: A FAQ page for this specific wiki? Or in general? (If in general: isn't there already one with questions you can use?)

2004-09-10 [Yoruno]: The FAQ will be specific for the Featured wikis ^_^

2004-09-10 [Sunrose]: Ok..I don't know which questions you have already...

2004-09-10 [Yoruno]: It´s ok, just tell us your doubts and we´ll add the ones we don´t have to the FAQ. ^_^

2004-09-10 [Sunrose]: Haha but taht would mean unneccesary work for me you see..

2004-09-10 [Ocean Dreaming]: of course we could also just publish it now and add question after question and waste space.

2004-09-10 [Sunrose]: why is that wasting space? I mean, it's not that I don't want to help, but I'm also very busy at the moment, so I have no time to think of all the questions I could ask..

2004-09-10 [Ocean Dreaming]: It's wasting space, because instead of adding a bunch of questions at once, you add them one at a time. Page versions are saved completely, not just the changes. It's easier to just add them all at once. Of course, if you're busy with something else that comes first. That's understandable.

2004-09-10 [Sunrose]: Ok I understand now! ^^ Well maybe you could send me what you have in a PM (but those are saved as well :S) or any other way send it to me...
