So after rewatching the show again, I decided to work on the wiki. So when I eventually came here, I felt the wiki requires a make-over as the pages look very messy, and not as good as the other wikis I have worked on . So with this I would like to share my idea to make it a bit more constructed and uniformed and amazing just like this amazing show!
So first up are the characters pages, I find them to be not structured, and very very unclear and confusing.
Here is how it should go:
Certain Character is a main/recurring/guest/episodic character on the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Some descriptions, and overall storyline of the character in short.
- 1 Biography
- 1.1 Early Life
- 1.2 Season 1
- 1.3 Season 2
- 1.4 Season 3
- 1.5 Season 4
- 2 Relationships
- 3 Appearance
Since the show is ending with Season Four this site is going to be really busy. Because of this I’ve offered Alaric Saltzman administrative powers on this site and he’s accepted. So to anyone still reading these blogs please welcome the new administrator for the CXG Wikia Alaric Saltzman ! He’s a Wiki Counciler and seasoned editor with a real love for this show who has already contributed a lot here.
In addition there is some other big news I have to share.
I founded this Wiki years ago as an alternative to another Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Wiki which had a head start building up it’s site. I did so with the thought I could make a better one and possibly spur the first Wiki into improving its rather lackluster efforts. Eventually the other Wiki col…
There is a poll for Best CW show and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is losing to Supernatural. This needs to be fixed please spread the word http://malice-corp.com/nerd-battle-best-cw-show/
As you've probably noticed I haven't been editing that much lately with only a few minor edits here and there. The thing is I've been sick the past few weeks as there was a flu/cold bug going around in my area. I've only now gotten better and have some spare time now during which I plan on going back to work on this Wiki. Surprisingly the views on the site are still somewhat strong despite the lack of edits. I credit this to all the content created here which is more than just cut and pasted info from Wikipedia and IMDb. Right now I plan on finishing the plot synopsis of the Season Two episodes and updating the format of the articles with the new Recurring themes templates.
Since IMDb has shut down it's message boards you all should check o…
There have been some slight changes here since I last posted, most notably all the Top Ten List feature have been removed. This was a decision by the Wikia top brass as not enough sites were using it and it was deleted from every Wiki that had it. I personally liked the Top Ten list and preferred it to the built in poll making feature. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to back up the data for all the votes that were made. I hope to replace those lists soon.
Another change has been new templates I've been adding to episode articles. I reconfigured them from Navbox templates I saw on the Star VS the Forces of Evil Wikia. I like how the design cleans up the look of the page and presents the information without the clutter of long walls of te…
Quick post as I get ready for this years feast and the itis to follow. I really want to thank all the contibuters who have helped out recently. I'm not sure if it's related to my last blog post but either way it's really appreciated. Special thanks goes to Trolypac. We've had issues both on this Wikia and another one and probably will again but I am grateful for the last few edits.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
So the CXG Wikia is nearing another milestone as its about to reach the 300 article page mark. Also there's been an influx of new visitors to the Wikia which has helped to bump the WAM score significantly overall. I'm proud of the progress but I'm only one person and there is a lot that needs to be done to keep this Wikia going. If anyone has some spare time I could really use the help. Any proofreading to correct pages or editing to update articles would be welcome. If you can't do that then please spread the word as promotion for this Wiki would be greatly appreciated. So please click on the small circular icons you see on the upper right hand of artcle pages to share those links on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Tumblr.
Also, don't forget…
Last week I got the news this site will be featured on the Wikia spotlight. My thanks to Merrystar for making that happen. If you build it they will come but it still doesn't hurt to advertise, it was something I didn't do enough of for the Community Wiki. Now I'm tweeting at CXG cast members about this Wikia, going on Reddit posting links to it and have a YouTube channel with videos clips of the show linking back to this Wikia.
Season Two of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" is set to premiere on October 21 in a new time slot Friday's at 9:00 after "". Before that happens I hope to have all the main character articles Season One sections updated. I also have in the works a few new articles I'll be sprinkling in between now and then. I eventually hope…
It seems I rubbed a few people the wrong way recently including members of the Wikia Powers That Be. I guess putting effort and hard work into something is less appreciated than being first and waiting for others to do all the heavy lifting.
The foundation of any Wiki is the quality of its content. I built up the Community Wiki for years taking it from around 120 pages in 2011 to over 800 pages by 2015. The pages weren't perfect, typos, unwanted auto corrects and grammatical errors were in abundance. Those mistakes were eventually corrected but my main goal was always to make sure that every page had something substantial on it. Back in January I founded this Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Wikia and my contributions to the Community Wiki slowed down as this site received most of my attention. Despite this, the WAM score on the Community Wiki is still very healthy. It's due to the fact that over the years I created enough meaningful content for visitors, both old and new, to keep coming b…
Yesterday this Wiki reached a milestone of 200 article pages. I've been working hard on this site since January building it steadily to this point. Although some articles need updating you won't find any stubs here. I personally hate going to a Wiki claiming to be a source of information about a subject only to find pages and pages with very little content. That's why I've put so much effort into this Wiki and will continue to do so. It seems to have worked as recent page views have increased significantly and the WAM score has been climbing. Since I reached a certain number of pages I put in a request for a Wikia spotlight for further promotion. Hopefully the Wiki will be approved and even more visitors will find this site. Until then I'l…
