Dedicated Wingnuts continue to work hard on the WCPedia project. In addition to simply writing new articles and filling out old ones, the team has also made a lot of progress in improving the layout and style of the Wing Commander encyclopedia. The Moray page is an example of the new ship infobox that's been developed. Future improvements will also enchance the database's citations and references. If you're not sure where to help out, hit up the CIC Forums and share your ideas!
For references, we are going to start adding those reference sections to every article. We can source when a certain thing appears, what is said about it, what is done with it, etc. Basically everything in WCPedia will have such an area that needs to be researched and built.
LOAF has been picking away at Nephilim fighters this week. Looking pretty good so far...
We are working on an improved (and hopefully final!) layout for Ship articles. It should be a vast improvement over what we've had in there.
Expect to see a lot of activity in the coming weeks. We are planning a big end of year push so be sure to watch the recent changes on the front page.
