Anyone want to help with the Flat Earth Wiki?
« on: December 22, 2008, 03:29:11 PM »
Sometime in the next couple of weeks, we'll be launching the main site (don't worry -- the forums will remain the same!) and officially opening the Flat Earth Society to new members again.  As part of the new website, I've set up a Flat Earth Wiki to eventually replace the FAQ.  Because we do get an occasional troll, I don't think Wiki will ever been completely open to the general public.. but I know there are plenty of very sensible, interested people on here who, even if they don't believe in Flat Earth Theory, might be willing to help Wiki-fy our FAQ.  If you're one of those people, let me know either in here or by PM.  This is open for anyone who's been here for a while and has a decent posting history.  It doesn't have to be a big time commitment.  Even if you only help with a few articles here and there, that's still appreciated.

It just occurred to me that Flat Earth Wiki's initials are FEW.  I smell a new membergroup.  The FEW, The Proud.

I would gladly help with the wiki. I'll be having some extra free time on my hands soon, so I should be able to contribute to at least a few articles over the course of the holidays.

I would be happy to help too, I don't post much in the discussion anymore, but that's more due to the angry noobs than lack of interest.

I think that what would be ideal is if someone had the tools and know how to create a 3d model of the various FE models showing (among other things) the relative orbits of the sun and moon above the FE.  It's something that I've been wanting to create myself but sadly, I don't have the tools necessary.  :-\

AmateurAstronomer has done something similar to that in the past.

I don't think that he ever modeled the actual expanding and contracting orbit of the sun as required by FET, or a model that would show the path of the FE sun from the surface of the FE (give or take the bendy light/refraction effects required to make the sun appear to rise/set).  I think that he had a good start, but I'd be looking for a more comprehensive model.

I've gotta say the format for the wiki looks very professional.

I'm getting this when I try to log in:

Edit:  Logging in works for me if done from the home page.  I get the above message if I try to log in from the actual wiki page.  Also, yay, I got a star.

I want to help but I'm not sure I'd be very good for it.  I could scan for any grammar or spelling errors!

Also, I want a thing that says The FEW next to my name.  I'll help with whatever I can for that.
