It has been a super busy month for the team working on the WCPedia. Dundradal has a goal of doubling the size of the encyclopedia in 2011, and they're well on their way to accomplishing that. A huge new addition is the inclusion of the Memoirs of Lieutenant Colonel Carl T. LaFong, The Kilrathi War's Greatest Ace. Text in these entries comes from the narrative-driven Wing Commander 1 & 2: Ultimate Strategy Guide, and they significantly flesh out the missions of the original games. On the other end of the timeline, Privateer 2's Bulletin Board Missions are also being steadily filled in with mission details and relevant story elements, which has already brought a ton of obscure and exciting trivia to light.

WCPedia has already had a very busy 2011. LOAF has done some great work in adding Priv2 Bulletin Board Mission articles. He's also put together a temp skeleton of every mission in the WC universe. We are currently in the process of working through this list and adding mission information.
I'm continuing through the Ultimate Strategy Guide text and LaFong's memoirs are almost finished.
By the end of the month, WCPedia should contain more than 1,450 content articles. That means we've added over 350 new articles since August 10 of last year. Dozens of articles received massive updates and rewrites in the same period. I'm hoping we can still make my goal of doubling the size of WCPedia (roughly 2,200 articles) by August 10, 2011.
