By the way, every now and then someone says that I started the wiki. It was already there when I began expanding it: the first entries were made by "The Light6" and "Bobickaa", and by a couple of users identified only by IP addresses.

The Wiki now has two new entries: Spaceship and Space Station!

I'll let someone else do the entry for the Lieutenant.

Probably shouldn't until this arc plays out.

There's a lot of dark speculation going on right now, better to wait until more is established in the comic.

You THINK? That comic deserves comparison to the 500-510 "The Talk" arc.

This arc has the potential to reach the impact of that arc. But currently, it is still building. 2134 does not come any where near 504 did in terms of character development. Wait and see.

The impact of the Sad Girl Hanners panel is heartbreaking - which is more than a lot of things in this comic (but NOTHING compared to the final panel of 504).

In and of itself, not really wiki worthy though, is it? A "Hanners' childhood is described here (link)" is about you might add to the wiki safely, IMO.

Hanners' childhood is described in more than one place, so there would have to be multiple links, and it's a part of her characterization. I'm fine with seeing it in the wiki.

Yes, that's right, Volume 3. The next book in the dead tree version - which hasn't even been PRINTED yet.

Fascinating that Nat is on the current cast page and Ellen isn't.

Marten went to college somewhere far from Northampton, according to the saga of Vicky. Steve is a college friend. How did Steve wind up in Northampton? Followed Marten a la Peejee? Couldn't find any other jobs except through Marten? Or something I shouldn't mention here?

I ran into a bit of a wall after going on a formatting binge last Thursday. Right now, I've got about 11 more articles that need to be reworked - which I'll try to tackle perhaps by the end of this week.

JW ... as someone who used to be paid to attempt what you're attempting (effectively, shepherding multiple specimens of felis cattus) I would advise not stressing over that unless you're getting money for it. That's just a friendly word to the wise.

Well, that's that. Went through and finished up the last of them today - with Dora's article getting a brand new picture.

The only article I didn't tackle was the AnthroPC one, mostly because I didn't really have the time and go back through ALL the APC references.

I just threw up my attempt at reorganizing the APC entry.  (Pun not entirely intended.)

The main reason why I went on this "binge", by the way, was a hope that it would make it easier to update characters as the strip moves along - without resorting to spoilers.

I'll admit that the three intern articles aren't as "in depth" as some of the older short-term characters, but it's hard to do a really in-depth article on a character you just met and don't have a lot of background for - and don't want to put "SPOILER" all over their article.

The strip-by-strip list is updated!

http://www.scribd.com/doc/98017010/QCSxS

Keep in mind that it's been tagged "mature content" because of the funsexytimes we've dealt with in the comic's history.

I'm thinking at some point of making it more of a transcript, but I'd need a lot more time and energy for that.
