Does it ever need it. BTW, Black Wolf, you're now my favorite person.
If I had the time, a lot of this might not of been necessary. But there are so many pages, so much to go through, and so little time/energy to do it that the whole thing sort of fell into disuse.
Hopefully, this will change. That said, some priorities need to be made. The first, and most important, is getting that non-canon crap out of the canon stuff. Especially the TVWP stuff that someone thought was important enough to mix into the V written stuff. I appreciate that someone thought the stuff I made up was worth putting in, but it sort of turned me off from working on it because I was building the canon database and suddenly all that work goes down the tubes. And I don't simply mean sorting it with labels, though that helps, but physically ripping it out in some cases.
Second, rebuilding (or getting access) to the old stuff, mostly the ship stuff which was a pain the butt when I worked on it originally. I think I got all the fighters done, but no further. Redoing it will be annoying, but easier if we can at least strip mine the data from the old one.
And finally, for now anyway, figuring out what we do and do not want in this thing, and where we want it. User made campaigns, ships, timelines, etc should probably be seperate from the canon stuff, but that's the easy stuff. I'm thinking of things like, do we really need to list the rotdamp for each fighter? Or any of the dozens of detail points in the tables that may or may not actually do anything. Finding out what they do might be nice too.
Well, that's how I see it. Now I just need a couple hours/weeks to start doing it. Damn modems. And life. And the universe. And everything.
