Wiki-ed Witches

Recently, I've been puttering at the Royal Wiki of Oz again.

Tonight, I mentioned to Oziana editor Marcus Mebes that I'd like to have a complete index of Oziana on the wiki. He mentioned he had been wanting to compile such a thing. I had the site, so a page about Oziana is up on the wiki, listing every single issue.

Every issue can have a page, every writer can have a page, and every story can have a page.

However, Marcus and I can't do it alone. Marcus, just now, has assembled issue listings for 2005-2011. We'd need some help. This is the page we've set up for the 2011 issue. That gives you an idea of how we'd like the pages to look.

And why a new Oz wiki when there's Wikipedia with an Oz section and an Oz wiki on Wikia? Wikipedia isn't comprehensive in these areas, and won't allow the same scope of articles I want for the wiki. And I don't know who runs the Wikia wiki, which has several strange gaps and incorrect information.

Come on folks, I wanna see some action that isn't an unavoidable spammer or me updating!

Just found this blog, and I am really enjoying it. I knew I wasn't the only adult Oz fan out there, but it's nice to know just how many are out there.

I just posted a piece about Oz on my blog, please check it out!

Joe Bongiorno's Timeline Universe website about how Oz books and stories are set in time might be reverse-engineered to yield info on Oziana issues.

I made my own Oz wiki years ago on Wetpaint but abandoned it.
I'd love to help out someway.
