Forum: Index Article improvement 99 to go


I was just looking around my screen and I've seen that we've hit the 400 article count mark! That's amazing but there's still 99 more articles to go before we got 500, which as i remember, means that we get a little star next to our site name on the list of wikis! However stubing won't be the way. There are still loads of articles missing from pre-paradise games and so i urge anyone who has those games to get playing, noting and contributing before January; were it'll be our little wiki's birthday :P So get your socks on people, it's time to do work! Thanks, TH3_P4RK5T3R T4LK_P4G3 F0UND37'5_8L0G C0NTR1BUT10N5 Burnopedia Admin

UPDATE: The article drive was completed, however, we are still using this page as a list for articles that should be improved or be created as well as a place to list large tasks to be undertaken to greatly raise the wiki's amount of content and pages. Users are encouraged to help out these pages whenever possible. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin

Anyone can add to this list or delete what has already been done. Hopefully this can help us get to 500. Only 99 articles to go! Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 19:20, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks X, I'm gonna be helping a lot hopefully with pictures. Cya, TH3_P4RK5T3R T4LK_P4G3 F0UND37'5_8L0G C0NTR1BUT10N5 Burnopedia Admin
To actually get on the list of wikis here, you need 2500 articles. Is that what you were talking about? Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 19:34, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
O_o OMG they got rid of the list on the wikia gaming hub. However the point still stands: 99 to go. TH3_P4RK5T3R T4LK_P4G3 F0UND37'5_8L0G C0NTR1BUT10N5 Burnopedia Admin
Actually, I found the list on the gaming hub. If we can reach 500 articles soon, we'll be the only Sports and Racing Game wikis to have a star by it. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 13:27, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Dibs on Burnout 2 tracks. I've got picks and everything. TH3_P4RK5T3R T4LK_P4G3 F0UND37'5_8L0G C0NTR1BUT10N5 Burnopedia Admin

I'll take care of the events. Oh, and by the way, I'm sure you mean "Grand Prix (Burnout Legends)", not "Gran Prix". It's in the Main Space section of the post, in the list of events that need to be created. AssassinLegend 23:33, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Fixed. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 00:43, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Nice Work Everyone! Edit

We got to and surpassed the 500-article mark with plenty of time to spare! We still have plenty to do though. Check the top of this page, Article Stubs, or Vehicle Stubs to see what you can do to help. A huge thanks to everyone who helped, and I hope that we can continue to improve Burnopedia and help it flourish. Look... we're over halfway to the 1000-article count. :P Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 15:34, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I think that we could push for a 600 article count with all the articles being of a decent unstubed quality. If we could do that then i'd be a happy chappy XD TH3_P4RK5T3R T4LK_P4G3 F0UND37'5_8L0G C0NTR1BUT10N5 Burnopedia Admin

Guess which 'Sports and Racing Game Wiki' is the only one with a star next to it? You guessed it! Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 16:10, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Stubs updateEdit

Thanks to Smudger, stubby articles are categorized into either Preparadise stubs or Paradise stubs. Find a list of these at the "Contribute" tab on the sidebar. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 20:12, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Create an articleEdit

That part of the side leads to this page. Shouldn't it lead to this page? Smudger13talk 20:17, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

We want users to know what articles to create. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 22:05, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
to create are preferred to be created first. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 22:10, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

It's over nine... hundred!Edit

It looks like we're closing in on 1,000 articles, any last thoughts comments? KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:20, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Pretty cool. The upcoming P12 challenges should help increase the article count and the quality of the articles. Or, people could get some self-initiative. Whatever. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 19:53, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
I have been making articles about the events in Burnout Legends recently so that should help. I am also planning writing those articles for the few streets in Paradise that have not been written yet Speedracer32 19:57, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Lurking in the shadows I was... Until this subject was brought up.
You're more than welcome to help Speed, but if you do get around to creating Paradise street articles (and there's a nice bunch left along with Big Surf Island's) then I'd ask that you strictly follow the existing articles' layout. Remember, this is not a race to 1K, but more like a challenge to get all articles well rounded everywhere with plenty of information (and pictures *coughs* LeMansRacer *coughs*) so take it easy and take your time for each road.

Don't worry I'll take my time, I just think we need to get these done instead of pushing them back and waiting for someone else to come and do it. I'm just looking forward to finding out new things Speedracer32 20:34, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Speed, don't make articles just to make articles. They should be helpful to the reader. For instance, event articles should have a table of the events in the game, etc. Also, be sure you link to mainspace articles, not redirects. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 20:45, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice Ex, however I'm not making articles for the sake of it, I'm making the articles so that they actually get started. And if you look already various members are adding information to the pages. I'm no expert on the whole of the Burnout series I just start articles and add any information I know about otherwise I leave other members to add information to the page. I don't make edits that I know aren't 100% true Speedracer32 20:52, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

(reset indent) More editing thoughts: only write in third person. (i.e. don't use I, me, you, etc.) Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 20:58, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Are there any photos for the roads? Also, I can't find any pages with Bike Road Rules on. --Jjbest 17:03, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

For the road map, I'm guessing you mean something like File:Paradise Streets (older).jpg. As for bike road rules, it would be great if someone would add them to Road Rule and Time Road Rule.
