I'm considering starting a Wiki for the OC-verse.

- It's essentially just going to be a repository of characters. No need to coordinate fanons, unless you really want to.

- Canon timelines, characters, and concepts are going to be the primary advantages I can see. We don't have to ask for confirmation on the differences between Knight's Garb and Knight's Armour; if it's not known, we can say so. If new information comes out, we can edit it.

- Current candidates for wiki hosting are BluWiki and Wikispaces. This is entirely because I don't want to bother with anything more complicated than "sign up and go". If anyone else has a better alternative, I'm open to suggestions.

- From previous experience, the main hurdles are going to be migration and maintenance.

- Migration: You'll have to copy your characters (and stories, if you want) to a whole new location, and learn a new formatting system. BluWiki and Wikispaces use MediaWiki, which Wikipedia uses (and more or less sponsors). I'm also conversant in PmWiki, plus the custom style TVTropes uses. Hence, I know how hard it is to convert from, say, BBCode to MediaWiki. It's extra work, pretty much.

- Maintenance: While the wiki content technically maintains itself, the primary problem I experienced with previous wikis is spam. Spambots are going to start converging on any remotely-open wiki, so either I'll need a dedicated group of people who are willing to check the wiki every day to remove spam edits, or we pray that the wiki hosting has a spam-control solution.

Any further suggestions or alternatives? I'm willing to pass the reins on to someone else with more ideas on what to do, if necessary.

Also, start thinking of names for the wiki, to save time. Both as a site name, as well as a domain space (ie blahblah.wikispaces.com or something).

EDIT TO ADD: Incidentally, for full disclosure: the wiki will be made anyway, since I wanted to make a wiki for my own characters anyway (for my own convenience). I just figured that I should offer to expand on the concept, to make it a community thing rather than a personal endeavour.

I'll be waiting a day or two for replies and opinions. If there's nothing concrete by then, I'll start it anyway.

EDIT AGAIN: Also, if there are no name suggestions, I'll come up with my own. And I really suck at naming.

Think of it as an incentive.

EDIT YET AGAIN: If you need an example of what I'm thinking about, something like this, although probably not as refined, since I also suck at site design. (Another volunteer position, there.) It's pretty much just a character repository with convenient wiki-linking capability.

This wiki idea really sounds interesting and would be useful, dkellis.
If you want help with graphics (logos etc) or the Maintenance part or something else I would be glad to be of assistance.

Hmm. Well I'm online enough to take part in the Maintenance. I can help out with that.

As for names...

Eh. OCNano? You could just go with the usual Outer Cadia.

I asked about it, and "Cadia" is apparently a WH40K reference.

I'd rather not have a reference to a non-Nanoha-verse source as a name, since it could be confusing.

Unfortunately about half the references we make are WH40K related |3

@ ghaz: something that some people like I are trying to break away from.

As for the wikiname, I do want OCnano, I can feel the warmth of Yukarinrin's "~nano".

But having a nonnano name would still be confusing as to its purpose... though I doubt anyone using it wouldn't already know what Outer Cadia is

Even so.

I'll bow to majority opinion, of course.

I do like "OCnano", though.

Well for reading all the stories, OC's and that kinda stuff a wiki is easier to read. You will only read the actual content without the other discusions.

OCnano sounds nice

*pops in* No time for lengthy replies, but I agree with Dkellis. Refrences and jokes are nice, but to use a refrence as a title for a source of information would just cause unneeded confusion and drive people away. OCNano sounds good.

Nano has several anime's of connotations, but I guess if they are all done by Nanoha's VA, it isn't so bad. OCNano sounds like a bank, but its our best bet so far; I'm behind it too.

I'm not too sure about maintenance, but I'll stand in whenever I can!

Sorry Ghaz, but Minase Iori was voiced by Rie Kugimiya, Miss Tsundere a la Louise, Shana, and Nagi.
