Re: Duncton Tales at Wikipedia--pah. Duncton Wood has never been more than the title of very first book. The first trilogy is The Duncton Chronicles, the second The Book of Silence, and there isn't a name for both series together except perhaps "the Duncton series". -- Sine 03:58, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

So improve it! :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 04:05, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I knew someone would say that. ;) Beyond the practical issue of where to start with that sort of wrong title issue, Wikipedia actually isn't somewhere I feel like putting my time; I feel it's too general a project and, to be honest, kind of silly. I love the wiki concept for more defined and communal topics like this here Wikifur, though! -- Sine 04:12, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
It does work very well for communities, as long as you can get enough people on to kickstart it. I've seen people try it to do more restricted projects, but it can't really be done alone (not for something worthwhile), and without a really determined founder you don't get to the point where it's self-sustaining, and you end up with 50 or so pages that do nothing. And you're right, it does need to be defined, otherwise people will think "where do I start?"
I guess that's part of starting a wiki - the foundation that you lay divides things up and makes it easier for others to add bits in their area of expertise. You can't just ask people to contribute to a blank slate - it doesn't work that way. --GreenReaper(talk) 06:55, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
