Before writing the angry messenges, hear me out.
Ghostbusters wiki has been pretty much maintaining the default Wikia look since it started back in 2008. That being said, the Front page is "boring" and doesn't grab anyone. While I like how readable it is, it is more like reading at a library. Now I'm not suggesting giving Peter shades on the front or anything (I could tho!) but I have been doing some surfing around other wikis and ghostbusters sites. We are one of the dullest places to go. lol
So I'm going to ask to seek permission to redesign the front page. I am looking at Glee Wiki for ideas.
One of the ideas is for a third column that includes recent blogs. I want blogs to be more easy to find and read. On that same column the wiki activ…
I bought Ghostbusters: What in Samhain Just Happened a few weeks ago. The duo of Peter David and Dan Schoening were what convinced me to go buy it.
This was the first IDW/GB comic I bought. I liked the story and all the references. I find something new each time I open the comic to read. All in all, I'd give it a 3/4 mainly because I can see the confusion/angst in having a new entity named after a much loved villain from The Real Ghostbusters. I liked that it was referenced in the title but to stretch it out as a character? I didn't buy into it as much as I should have.
Only issues I had were logistical, I had was finding it in my
area, I got the last copy at the second store I went to and the
pages were a little stuck to each other.
There are bold assumptions that I will be here forever, and that I am a king of this Wiki. Both are false.
First of all, I am here cause I want to. I'm not tied to this project. I have been a fan of Ghostbusters since 1986. I am here to build a great place to find information on Ghostbusters. That is why I'm here right now.
King of Ghostbusters Wiki?! I thought it was Kahlil? Anyways, yes I have currently the most edits here, which I guess makes me the Default Leader. Never was it my mission to build a Ghostbusters Kingdom. I am more of a Jester you know!
So what are the plans for Ghostbusters Wiki? ...... Keep building and developing articles. I see some awesome ideas from Mrmichaelt lately. As for me, I may focus more on Ghostbuster equipme…
For the topic of my first blog here, I'll say my primary interest right now is Tobin's Spirit Guide. So much, I've been compiling info and putting them in a spreadsheet document.
"John Horace Tobin spent 20 years risking life, limb and sanity to gather true accounts of human encounters with the paranormal. His travels covered the world, and his lively, informal style earned him fame and recognition wherever he journeyed. An invaluable reference aid, Tobin's Spirit Guide details sites, sightings and situations on nearly every continent."
I took the Ghostbusters International Reference Book to heart and was inspired to create my own version. Thanks to the recent DVD series set of The Real Ghostbusters, I was recently able to complete a Microso…
Here is a check list of the badges. I didn't reveal the ghosts, as I think that is part of the fun of it. There is a total of 40(now 56) badges to get, however one of the badges is unattainable at this time so you can get up to 39(55). Warning, some take a lot of time to get. One badge requires a daily edit everyday for 365 days. Good luck getting that one!

I last month changed the "Whatever of the Month" from Article to Poll. It seems people enjoy the polls more than picking a article to feature. It was claimed to have a vote count of over 400. What do you'll think? Also, what should the question next month be?
I brought in the whole achievement thing to get people editing, posting, and enjoying the wiki. I hear complaints that this will encourage bad/useless edits. From where I stand, and I am a administrator here, it is fine. People need some play room and to enjoy themselves while editing. I don't want a strict wiki that bans people hourly.
Currently as I write this, we've had atleast a 4 people edit here and enjoy the system. Yes they are trying to earn the badges, but the point is, they are here and enjoying the wiki. That is something I want people to do. Enjoy this Wiki. I didn't build this wiki so it could sit dormant when I'm not editing. I want a living place that people enjoy editing at.
So for the record, I am not for banning users over…
I personally like everything of or pertaining to Ghostbusters(except for those phoney-baloney Filmation Ghost Busters[No offense, Devilmanozzy]). I would like to know if anyone here prefers a certain part of the franchise.
- The movies
- The Real Ghostbusters
- Extreme Ghostbusters
- Any video game
- Any comic
- Any or all of the above.
