I've created a Facebook, Gmail, and twitter account for the wiki, and created some promo images for the wiki. I'll get you those passwords if you want. The twitter has been the most successful so far in gaining followers and making connections with blogs, podcasts and others.
Email me at email@example.com and I can get you those passwords.
Excellent! I think I'm good at the moment, but if I change my mind and decide I want access I'll shoot you an email.
I know I've said this before, but this wiki is doing better than I could have possibly imagined back when I found it. As for me, I plan to keep up my current M.O. of swooping in and editing/adding content when time allows (which it does less often than I'd like), but if there's something I can help with specifically let me know and I'll get on it. If not, I shall continue to happily watch the progress being made!
Keep up the great work, this wiki is in good hands.
Hey there! I've had a great time at GenCon in Indianapolis this week and have rallied some potential recruits to help with the blog, as well as made some good networking contacts to help spread the word further throughout the Lovecraft fandom.
Off topic, what was the deal with the post in artistic imagery the other day? I'm guessing it was intended for another page regarding real-life fan theories. Just curious.
Glad to hear it! The wiki is looking fantastic, by the way - are the new color/lineart images your work?
Which post are you referring to..? I haven't posted anything substantial on the wiki in quite some time... I honestly haven't been involved much at all recently, been very glad to just sit back and watch things develop. Could you direct me to the post you asked about?
That is very odd... I remember having deleted that section of text a long time ago, for the reason that it was indeed biased and out of place. I don't recall having put it back in, nor would I have felt the need to do so... The last edit I remember having made to the Cthulhu page was adding that quote at the top.
I honestly don't have an explanation, that is quite weird! I'm 99% sure I didn't do it intentionally, but I don't know what kind of computer error/glitch would have resulted in a past edit being reverted like that. Well, whatever the reason, my apologies - thankfully someone went ahead and took it back out right away! I'm putting it down to subconscious telepathic persuasion by the Old Ones until further investigation...
That's really cool that you have a contact willing to help out in that capacity - out of curiosity, is he on DeviantArt? I have an account on there, I follow a bunch of artists for inspiration and whatnot.
I figured it was something like that. Computers are whimsical and unpredictable gods without any other help.
He is Michael Bukowski. He's a really nice guy. I'm trying to figure out how to balance the problematic nudity that appears in some of his work, but still find a way to include it. The last thing I want is for this wiki to be NSFW. I've used a little blur until now (with his permission), but some remain more difficult and explicit. They are compelling though, and the juxtaposition of the erotic with the horrific is incredibly disturbing and all the more appropriate to the feel of the Mythos universe.
I agree, it's a very unsettling mixture - reminded me of H.R. Giger there for a second, he was a master of blending those two elements in his art. Michael's art is a great addition to the site, I'm especially happy to see that he's illustrated some of the lesser-known entities in the Mythos; his takes on Cthulhu/Nyarla/Hastur and other more prominent figures are refreshingly imaginative as well! I like his art style too - it's vivid and colorful, which is a departure from a lot of the murky tones in other Mythos-related art, but it works very well.
And yeah, it's probably best to blur out the gore/nudity, just in case.
