Wiki pages that need work


#1

Just a few examples, every help is much appreciated



http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Links

(some of the existing links don’t yet work, or don’t work anymore, lots more are missing. the page could also look nicer)



<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … _Rodriguez”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Robert_Rodriguez</LINK_TEXT>

(we don’t have the resources to start our own page for Robert, but we can do our best to make this section better than any possible fanpage out there)



http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Help:Contents

(I’ll probably do this one myself, but feel free to help out! these pages should guide others on how to use the wiki easily)



http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Dragon_Dynasty

(needs to be updated!)



<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … oundtracks”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Category:Soundtracks</LINK_TEXT>

(page looks kinda boring. are we missing soundtrack pages? are the soundtrack pages complete with amazon links, cover picture, track listing, further links, etc?)



http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Category:DVD

(this page looks kinda boring, too. how about some latest dvd reviews. do we have all tarantino movies’ dvd sub pages here? let’s dive into those subpages and see if those are complete)



<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … _Tarantino”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Quentin_Tarantino</LINK_TEXT>

(spellchecked? proof-read? checked for plagiarism? is it up-to-date? do we have links to books?)



http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Category:Books

(go to either the RR or QT sections. are we missing books? or editions? do you have one of them? post a short one paragraph review, or give so and so many stars. missing information? are amazon links out of date? books out of print?)



<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … ilmography”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Complete_Filmography</LINK_TEXT>

(this is for the wiki experts, because the page has lots of table code. but it looks boring. we could have a gallery of posters on the right, or make it look better in other ways. how about those other links, check it out, are they correct, complete, any mistakes?)



<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … nces_Guide”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Kill_Bill_References_Guide</LINK_TEXT>

(the layout of this page is a bit confusing. how can we improve it. then the actual guides. they need to be cleaned up, updated, and most of all, they need to be expanded. sometimes there’s just a dvd cover and a movie title. how are the movies referenced? what are the similarities? where does QT have that stuff from?)







THAT WAS JUST A FEW QUICK THINGS. happy editing. report back to me with questions and problems


#2

Let me get done with what I’m working on right now, and I’ll work on Robert’s page more.







Seb, can you PM me my password? Just so I don’t have to do the whole “forgot my password” routine?


#3

actually I can’t actually “see” passwords. I can just spend the same amount of time as you would with the forgot password routine to manually give you a new password and send that to you…


#4

It’s alright mate. I’ll get it later.


#5

Okay, I have updated every French books editions about QT. Almost every French dvd editions of his movies, gotta still check out some stuff. I checked out every soundtracks, there are links for every French OST editions too.



I just added a lot of posters in the Death Proof, Planet Terror, Grindhouse, Kill Bill sections. I’ll add everything in the Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown sections too.

If I have time, I’ll do the same for True Romance, Natural Born Killers, Four Rooms and Sin City.



I’ll be back in Paris in less than a month. Then I’ll upload the pics of every movie, cause there are all on my computer. Can’t do it right now.

I think everyone in the forum that posts regularly and who doesnt help out on this project should get a “LAZY BASTARD” rank. :slight_smile:


#7

Ahah, that’d be funny but maybe they’d feel attacked and stigmatized. You cannot force people to contribute, it should be their own responsability to know they HAVE to contribute.



BTw, I just uploaded all the PF posters I have.

#11

I have updated all the posters categories for Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Four Rooms, Natural Born Killers, True Romance, From Dusk Till Dawn. I’ll keep adding stuff in the next few days.

<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … o_pictures”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php/Quentin_Tarantino_pictures</LINK_TEXT>



oops. I think we need some pictures…


#14

I was about to ask you cause I didn’t find the category before. I’m gonna upload some pics.



Question though : do we split the section in two or three categories :

  1. Official pics
  2. Public appearances
  3. Scans from different mags issues.

    Does that sound right ? Or do we only include the official pics ?

#15

Well so far the categories are:



Quentin Tarantino portrait pictures (headshots, publicity stills, etc)

Quentin Tarantino pictures from films (such as screenshots. Need a picture of him as Mr Brown? look here)

Quentin Tarantino party pictures (the man likes to party, see him at events, with people)

Quentin Tarantino publicity pictures (at red carpets, premieres, press conferences, interviews…)

Quentin Tarantino random pictures (fits none of the above categories)



So I think it covers pretty much everything. I have added some stills and behind the scenes images for Death Proof. Next I will upload the pics I have of him from magazines and stuff as well as pictures of him from films.


#16

we can always add more categories to keep a better overview, there are no limits, we can have a separate category for movie premieres and red carpets, we can have one for tv appareances, etc… plus we can always move stuff around later

<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.ph … usedimages”>http://www.tarantino.info/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Unusedimages</LINK_TEXT>



that’s another thing, there are a number of unused images, mostly from the kill bill references guide. instead of deleting them, we should include them wherever they fit, mostly in the reference guide, and if there are dublicates, just let me know, i’ll delete them. would be nice if we could clean this up, i’ve already started with some

I’ve uploaded a lot of QT portrait pics. I kinda had problems to make it look good since all the pics were from different sizes and I’m maniac when it comes to make it good.



I’ll try to sort out the different event/party pics later.


#19

tu es marvelleuse! (if that’s correct. well you’re the bomb, lili)


#20

Almost perfect, merveilleuse would be the proper word :stuck_out_tongue:
