On Discographies, Songographies, Wikis, etc
Hi.

Lately I've been on the prowl to collect UW oddities I don't already have. I got to thinking it would be nice to have a definitive list of every UW release and every UW song known to man to compare against. I'm aware of a few resources of this kind out there (Big Screen Satellite's, Negative 1's) that don't seem to be updated any longer. Likewise there are things like the Rowla.com "Gigography" that serve a particular niche, but I'm interested in the gestalt.

So, what I'm wondering is a couple things:
1) Is anyone else interested in a site like this?
2) Does it already exist? (I'm sure that its possible that I just missed it if it does)
3) Does anyone have a good idea about how to implement it? I'm a computer geek by trade, so I know of a few ways to skin the proverbial cat. My initial inclanation would be to create an Underworld wiki, so that all the data could live there, all interlinked, and available to all to update and edit.
3a) Does this (UW wiki) already exist?

Thoughts?

Its all stuff that is part of the born dirty development ideas, but we would like to get people involved in this.. it requires work and research to consolidate the info that we once had back into one place.

An Underworld wiki does exist. At this moment its very bare. However the content was started by me and some others a few years ago on the main wikipedia.

this is probably a good starting point although their new organization annoys me.

Re: On Discographies, Songographies, Wikis, etc
trouble is, that there is so much stuff, and its a right royal pain to keep on top of - hence why my site has not been updated...

the ideal would be a site that can be updated like a wiki, but here on born dirty - which I think is happening / being developed, problem is is that it takes time and I for one don't have it, any longer, hence - why my site is dormant

i still have alot of info but certainly not all...

and as much as there is a market for it here, its still niche...

its a great idea though to revitalise this

any way the content from your site (which has been pretty helpful for me and I'm sure alot of others here) be extracted, reskinned and incorporated to borndirty.org? just put another tab up by Tour Dates called Discography... just a thought. I, on a part time basis maintain a website for an orthopaedic doctor - so I have some knowledge of web programming... I'd be willing to help in any way.

It sounds like there's definitely some interest, and I appreciate the link to underworldwiki.com.

I think the real questions are:
  1. (as stated by others) Should/can it live at borndirty.org?
  2. Would the folks that have already done some of this (Big Screen, the underworldwiki.com guys) be willing to donate their data to the cause?
I'm definitely capable and willing to do whatever work is necessary to massage said data into whatever format is chosen (personally I'm still very much in favor of a wiki) and to help with any necessary issues on the backend.
