Phase Two of Junkyard Domination

First there was this here Blog, then the YouTube account and now we bring to you...

That's right, you lucky little buggers you, an entire Wiki (that's a web page Dictionary of sorts for those not in the know) all about our favourite little white box. I set this up just yesterday, and kind of wish I thought of it a day earlier for the console's birthday, but never mind. I've already made a start with the sections as you will see on the front page, with an almost complete list of games released for the console in every region. The Japanese only releases list proved to be he hardest to put together (and is no where near complete) as unlike the US and UK releases, there are no complete lists out there, for all those extra games those Japanese have had over the last few years, to work from. I've also made a start profiling the development studios that made games for the Dreamcast (and what games they were). Capcom sure did do the most!

There's much, much more planned, though. I plan to get up separate profiles of EVERY Dreamcast release, including box art, screenshots, and a Youtube video to stream from it. It's going to be a long task, but I've been preparing this for months now, and just need to get the load I've done so far online. There will also eventually be profiles for every piece of hardware released, and what games each of them work with.

Obviously, I can't do all of this myself, so I'm going to be hiring staff to help me out. Want to help out on this massive project? Sign up to wikispaces.com and E-mail me with your username, and I'll sign you up to the Wiki's member list, where you will be able to add and edit articles. Before you start writing up game profiles, however, wait till I have mine all up. Here comes the naff propaganda poster!

Why contribute to the Wiki at DCS instead?

Now I forgot all about that one. Thanks for making what I thought was a good idea worthless =D

never heard of a 'wiki' before. I feel I'm being left behind by all this advanced interweb stuff

fatherkrishna said...

Its not worthless! The time you made mocking up the poster was well spent ...it looks ace!

The GagaMan(n) said...

Well, it appears DC-Scene have done more or less what I had planned already, including profiles for many commercial games complete with box art. Bugger =E

fatherkrishna said...

fatherkrishna said...

But yeah... for the Yard I'd kill 'em all... Notice i've even refrained from swearing... Fuckers let me at 'em... LOL! Go on Father cross yerself and get to bed!

http://www.dreamcastgallery.com/

That's got a load of pictures of DC hardware to use... site seems abandoned. I guess if you put them into a nice easyily accessible format, instead of Javascript menu (ie Wiki), the creator wouldn't mind spreading the love of dreamcast.

I think a proper Wiki, instead of dreamcast-scene's would be good.... preferably one without all of the advertising. I can provide free hosting and bandwidth for the wiki if you want. My web space doesn't get used much and is going to waste

Tomleecee said...

Erm, we covered the Dreamcast Gallery aeons ago...

The GagaMan(n) said...

He doesn't mean just linking to it, Tomleecee, he means using the infomation and images for pages at the Junkyard Wiki.

Free Hosting would be very nice, as wikiplaces does contain ads. Only thing is I wouldn't know how to manage a Wiki from scratch.

Tomleecee said...

Ah, I see. No harm done!

So, what about all those games already covered/reviewed/articled at wikipedia.org?

And, count me in to do some spanish translations (if wanted of course).
