Until some official mechanism exists for GeekGold rewards for good wiki content, I'm giving out some ad-hoc awards, and I also thought it would be a good opportunity to highlight some of the good content being created on the wiki. So, right out of the gate:

* Thanks to DrChek for the pages and corresponding description edits: Spiel des Jahres, Alea small box series, Alea medium box series, and numerous other edits

* Thanks to simonh and oskari for the Contests pages

* Thanks to absent_handed for the cataloging of the Charles_S._Roberts_awards

* Thanks to kuhrusty for the EuroFront series page

Some pages I'd like to see for those looking for something to create:

* More awards pages Deutscher Spiele Preis, International Gamers Award, etc.

* Summaries of frequently discussed topics like those listed on the Forums page

* Fleshing out and filling in the missing parts of the Guide to BoardGameGeek

Excellent. We'll still need to add in links from the games to the awards they've received. I did Puerto Rico as an example.

No problem. I got tired and quit part way through last night, but hope to keep expanding it (if for no other reason than I use it as a reference myself)

I am still somewhat confused about the scope of the Wiki.

If I would like to add more information about project Gipf, what would be suitable? Obviously a lot of information, such as game description are available in other places on the site. Is it ok to add personal opinions and ratings on this pages or should this be places somewhere else on the site?

Personal opinions and ratings are NOT neutral. Those would go in a review or forum thread or geeklist. If you wanted to flesh out the Project GIPF page, you could add such things as more history or how the games relate. The two MAIN things to remember are: not info that can be found elsewhere (like on game/designer/pubisher pages), and not stuff that is not neutral, i.e. no opinions or ratings.

One of the most important functions (IMO) of the new wiki and the easiest way to think of content to add: ALL the game, designer, and publisher descriptions are now user editable.

Go find your favorite game or designer and see if its current description does it/them justice. If not, rewrite it. Add all the (neutral) info you want. If it's too much for the average game description, make new subpages that link from the main description page.

I've started an index for the Avalon Hill GENERAL magazine on/in the Wiki.

The main index is at:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/The_General_Index

A sample page is at:
The GENERAL Vol.12,No.2

Details on the project are here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/129910

Any help from some of you old school wargamers would be appreciated!

I have created a wiki-page about the Catan Series. Feel free to correct things and add new stuff. Also, if people like the the page I guess it would be a good idea to link to it from the game descriptions.

The Wiki forum seems to have low traffic - are these new "Wiki Forum" threads appearing on the front page like the rest of the Forums?

I've added lots of podcast info to the Wiki, including creating a template for podcasters to use when filling out information. I added the bulk of the Wiki pages for the podcast that page links to as well as bugged some podcast creators to update their info.
