    The Ska Mutiny wiki

    Post by Summers on Sat Jun 20, 2009 2:46 pm

    Right, so i've set this up:

    http://skamutiny.wikia.com/wiki/Ska_Mutiny_Wiki

    Anyone can edit it, and it'd be appreciated if people could submit stuff like band info. I'll start adding the A-Z of UK Ska onto the wiki, and if people are in bands/know bands well enough then it'd be cool if they want to write up a biography/discography, stuff like that.

    I'm not 100% sure what i'm doing at the moment, it seems easy enough to pick up though.

    Oh god I might have to learn to edit wikis now.

    If it works out this could be very useful. Tour dates might be even more useful (loads of informations about them in one place) but that might make the pages too long.

    So i've made it look a bit nicer and started adding sections for promoters/labels/fanzines. Just need to add content!

    Ok, i've just added the entire A-Z of UK Ska from the original thread. If people want to start adding details/biographies for bands that they're in, that'd be cool. Also if people want to add any promoters to the list from their area, feel free Smile

    The next stage is trying to compile a 'bands by region' page, to help people looking for bands in specific areas.

    I started putting some Welsh bands in a category called suprisingly, Welsh Bands. Don't know if you want to sort bands into region by category like that or not, but I thought it might be handy.

    I think we could always have a regional page, where you can click on different regions (ie north/south wales, then north, north west, etc. like on the promoters page.) Then we could have another page within the regions for towns/cities, if we were feeling adventurous.

    Yeah, you get that by doing what I was. Take a look here:http://skamutiny.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Welsh_Bands

    And you can still have them in more than one category, so Detached could be in 'Welsh Bands' 'South East Wales' and 'Caerphilly'.

    And we could have 'Caerphilly' as a sub category of 'South East Wales' which is a sub category of 'Welsh Bands', so that clicking the category for Welsh bands could show West Wales, North Wales, South Wales. Probably the easiest way to do it.

    I think my thoughts were rather than just listing the bands by the region they're from, it might be more helpful to list them by town/city rather than alphabetically?

    So you'd have the places as the subheading, then have them alphabetically listed under that.

    I'll be ok doing Wales on my own, and I can lend a hand with doing the rest of the country but my geography skills for England are quite poor.

    It's not that bad! It took me a while to get in the swing of things but I kind of get it now.

    I'm going to go with 'very unlikely'. It was a cool idea though.
