That's just how it's done. Don't ask me why. IMO, whoever* designed the first Wiki must have been extremely eccentric.

Re: The New Brass Goggles Wiki Awareness Thread

I've begun a new thread to duscuss my proposal for a Wiki page listing fictional organizations. (I actually started it here, but I would have started a new thread if I were a little less impulsive. Honest!) I'm posting a link to it here, since this is the definitive Wiki Awareness thread.

In brief, I propose a listing of Laboratories, Research Institutes, Noble Houses, Trading Houses, Military Service Branches, Regiments, Companies, Corps and so forth, Professional Associations and whatever else might not fit the pattern of an Airship Crew or a Social Network. A more detailed description is in the Request for Comments thread.

I invite any comments or suggestions to be posted in the Request for Comments thread; I shall wait a week or two before proceeding, as I would prefer to produce something acceptable to the community-at-large, rather than something which merely reflects my personal tastes.

In anticipation I remain
Prof. Darwin Prętorius von Corax, Director
The Leverkusen Institute of Paleocybernetics

Ah fair enough my fault- it wasn't a big problem, I just thought if it wasn't supposed to do that it'd be best reported.
Still exelent to see it doing so well

Re: The New Brass Goggles Wiki Awareness Thread

I've just added the titles Andromeda Effect, The Clutch:The Mad Dash, and HMAS Badger, Online Aether Ship: Members Wanted to the Portrayal Stories page, mainly because no one else has done so yet; I'm by no means an expert at wiki writing, but it seems to me to be too good a resource to go unused.

Can somebody please tell me whether I should use the current 'Rogues Gallery' page for characters in all of the various Portrayal-area RP's, or create a new list for each? Either way is fine with me, I just want to keep the continuity going, for readability's sake.

As of Today (11/8/2010):
Added navigational links("Return to Table of Contents") at bottom of each extant page; planning to actualize several 'red-heading' pages.

Added A.U.N.T.S.A.L.L.Y. and The Committee (from the Brantley-related RPs and those that he appears in, however briefly), to the 'Fictitious Organizations section. Added a "Metaclubs" section, and added the names of several new Portrayal RPs to the "Portrayal Fiction" section, and to the Metaclubs Fiction sections.

I have added no images as yet.
