Ben Ellery has created and contributed to a wiki like that for Questionable Content. The more the merrier!

I'm doing my part! What about the rest of you God Tree watchers out there?

BUMP!

Seriously though, as the sole admin on this brand new wiki I'd like to extend an invitation to visit, read and contribute.

It may not seem like a necessary resource just yet, but I expect that Alice Grove is going to throw a lot of technical, scientific and political information at us, in addition to the inter-personal complexities we can already see the beginnings of. When Jeph finally gets around to revealing more mysterious aspects of the story (such as where exactly the Vicissitudes came from), expect a lot of techno-babble.

At that point, even the most dedicated reader might start to lose track of finer details. A wiki will likely become necessary to keep track of everything.
It would be much better to develop it now, rather than later. A couple of people (literally, 2 people besides myself) have already helped out, but each new comic presents new information, and we could use some help.
It looks like there are a reasonable number of dedicated Alice Grove readers, judging by the already intense activity in this forum, and it would be great to get more of you (us?) involved.

Please check out the wiki, and consider making a contribution (it doesn't have to be much).
I hope to see you there.

Well, that was fun.

Although I'm not quite sure if you were seriously trying to be helpful or just making a big joke out of it.
Either way, awesome parody!

A bit of both, really. I seem to have a knack for writing alternative lyrics for songs, and "it doesn't have to be much/a snowman" caught my eye.

I'll try and put some stuff on there, but honestly I don't really know what to put. I'll have a look around.

I've had a crack at writing the plot as it was one of the "pages wanted."  I'll try to contribute where possible, but it seems pretty comprehensive so far.

Yeah, activity tends to be in short bursts after comics which tell us something interesting.

Check out Category:Article stubs (http://alicegrove.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Article_stubs) for the pages most in need of attention.
Currently, I'm creating individual pages for plant and animal species currently explained on the Habitat page. If you want to help, the content there needs to be moved, and expanded/updated.
Particularly:
Cupressaceae (http://alicegrove.wikia.com/wiki/Cupressaceae) could also use some attention, if you're up for  it.

Oh, and thanks for joining in!
