Morrissey-solo Wiki:To Do

From Morrissey-solo Wiki
Revision as of 07:24, 2 February 2013 by Davidt (talk | contribs)

Master list of priorities for the Morrissey-solo Wiki. If you have spare bandwidth to help edit any of the below please do. Suggestions for items to be worked on are welcome.

Recent Changes

  • Feb. 2, 2013: DT - Appeared On is now also automated, see Hand In Glove and Suedehead. Tracklist data is still missing in some albums so that data also needs to be entered for the queries to be completely accurate. Adding this to the song pages as part of the cleanup, I'll work on the songs when I have some time but if feel free to help, it's pretty simple data entry but can get a bit tedious.
  • Jan. 26, 2013: DT - Semantic MediaWiki is up and running, see the Live History section of the songs Hand In Glove and Suedehead. Now to add them to the rest of the songs, let me know if you want to help. Also while we're at it, do some cleanup of the song pages.

Existing Pages That Need Work

Suggested Features

  • Expanded concert details - total song plays count, venue played count. (DT - this is done with the addition of Semantic MediaWiki, just need to enter the data for the Live History section of each song. For venues played count, this can be seen easily looking at the "Morrissey concert" of "The Smiths concert" categories).
  • Change lyric formatting so that it renders as individual lines instead of a paragraph?

DT: Lyrics are in a blockquote, lines seem to be separated fine. Can you give an example / more details of the improvement you are thinking of?
