So, considering how miniscule the BMZ fanbase is, that I might give this wiki the overhaul it desperately needs myself in my spare time. Make separate pages for the Zero canon and the older canon, add a bunch of pictures and spruce up the personalities, other sections, trivia, etc. Does anyone mind that? Everytime I look at this wiki it makes me sad because of how amazing the BMZ games are and how decrepit this wiki looks because of the extremely niche nature of the games.
Umm,that's it? I wish there was a "How To Edit A Page" guide but expanded to stuff like making redirects,and more than just "how to make headlines" like right now.
So, I've considered the possibility of adopting the wiki, but in order to do that, I need some sign of approval from any active members. This place hasn't had an active administrator for over two years. This means certain important functions, such as being able to delete pages or images deemed unnecessary, countering vandalism, and certain methods of sprucing up the wiki cannot be achieved. I am an active administrator on the Kirby Wiki, and thus have a pretty good grasp of taking on the role. While I haven't made the most amount of edits around here, I do have information to give that I haven't added here yet because I'm mostly busy organizing and collecting it before publishing it instead of adding small bits at a time. I'll likely also …
I would like to help edit this wiki, maybe help make a background and a banner at least. Maybe help edit some pages and content.
So I was reading the Wikipedia Blaster Master article when I saw this little bit about Sunsoft's original announcement of Blaster Master 2: "At the 1992 Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Sunsoft announced that they were planning to develop a sequel for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, but it never came to be."
Well, interviews with Software Creations staff made it pretty clear that when they were hired, the game was always, and exclusively, developed for Sega's console. Sunsoft must have done some prototyping of a Blaster Master 2 for the SNES before they decided to outsource to SC for BM2 on the Genesis...that makes me wonder if there is a lost "Super Blaster Master" proto (or even further along) shoved deep in the vau…
I always wanted to get some templates done fo the wiki since I started editting here, but at the time I didn't really know how to do that. After working on other wikis for a bit, I'm back and more knowledgable! First navigation template for the site so far: Template:Series. Next two on my agenda: Template:Characters and Template:BM1.
Characters should list protagnists and antagonists, since nothing is tying the character pages together yet.
BM1 will hopefully be the start of game-specific navigation boxes, that should include everything directly relevant such as levels, bosses, items, enemies, and probably misc stuff like the pause trick. Right now I'm thinking the color scheme for each should be based on the sophia model in that game.
