You're not getting away that easily.

How do you suppose a Blood "wiki" will serve to inspire youngsters and females to participate in our mission?

Videogame wikis are a useful tool for the game and are especially attractive for newcomers who want to get the "full scoop" on the game beyond a mere "how do I kill X" walkthrough.

Whether they'd attract females specifically to the site is debatable. I'd say their general usefulness still makes them a good idea in contributing solid content to a legacy game site. It would bring in new people, overall. If it brings in women and children to diversify our demographics, so much the better.

But right now the site is mostly a forum where people chat, rather than a nexus for game info and content.

I agree that a wiki should be part of this site. I also previously mentioned that I thought the Postmortem should be the ultimate Blood site on the internet. It should be the site that everyone turns to when they want to find out Blood facts or news related to the Blood universe. The Postmortem could certainly do a better job then the current wiki on the internet, which promotes abhorrent DOOM mods as the future of the Blood community.

But I believe that information of value will attract people. If visitors like what they find on a site, and if its presented well, then they might choose to participate. However currently this forum is all there is of the Postmortem. Its been in a temporary form for over a year, and the site is comparable to a hastily built shack at a construction yard that promises a new modern highrise will be built. It's nice that a new building is "coming soon" but the highrise must be built to demonstrate its strength and stability. Maybe then a variety of people will want to move in, otherwise persistent spambots will make this their home instead.

Or we could simply abduct women and children and lock them in the yard...

The Chinese are very serious, and they seriously don't like serious threads not being taken seriously.

Aww that wasn't a bit nice!

In some peculiar alternately thinking realm, Umnir's suggestion made a kind of sense. I don't see this exchange as being terribly off topic, but fine, back to seriousnessness.

It's a shame that Asia never got exposure to Blood. I'm curious as to how it would've been received over there. At least we'd all have at least thirty sealed Blood boxes in that eventuality. . .

China will grow larger.
