Unwritten Article Backups

As three of round twos articles still haven't been written, I'm appealing to anyone, Lexicon members and non-members, to help us fill in the gaps in our knowledge.

I need nine eight users willing, as there can't be two articles in the same round by the same person. Six of these won't be able to write an article for round two, and two of these won't be able to write an article for round three.(Two of those who wrote articles for round two.)

Give me your names, please!

The numbers may change if any of the lexicon users write their designated articles.

Even if you've taken part in the previous rounds, it doesn't matter, these articles are a must. I don't want to see this lexicon die like the last. --RahrahCome join the #party!19:12, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
What am I supposed to do and by when?-- SA 19:16, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
If you could write The Department of Evangelical Morons (Remembering to use Template:Lexicon) at anytime, it'd be great. --RahrahCome join the #party!19:22, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
Created a place holder, will finish it sooner or later. Probably tonight.-- SA 19:32, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
Just wrote Forest Green. Ross also asked me to provide a citation for Breakout, which I did earlier. Hopefully I did everything correctly. If I did, let me know and I'll see what I can do about a GHI entry next. Aichon 21:35, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

So do we need to start dropping the inactives and rotating in new players? We're wild behind on this, and I was enjoying it. :( When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 07:01, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Indeed. Where is this going? I'd rather not see it die, even though I'm currently not an active player, but it seems that few people are pushing to keep it alive at this point. Aichon 14:48, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm currently trying to get a user to provide a citation for the last round 1 article. Once that is out the way, I'll look at a push on users for their round two articles. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:39, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't think my article is going to get one, it should proberlly be ignored. --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 18:43, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
We can definately sort it. No problems. With a bit of luck we can finish everything in rounds one and 2 quite easily. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:50, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
And as I mentioned, if I did everything right for round 2, I'll be happy to contribute a round 3 article as well, to help fill the gaps. Aichon 18:55, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Please Do! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:57, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Graaagh! Let's go let's go let's go! I kind of completely forgot about UD wiki for the past coupla weeks. Oops. D: Thank you Aichon for your help! You're a star! If you could continue onto round three that would be excellent. SA, it's been quite a while, I think I needa poke you. Would it be too obtrusive to stalk Recent Changes and ask anyone to help? Possibly.
And, because we have so few users and the Lexicon's in a half life, anyone can write articles (and cite) for it, because I sure as hell don't want to see this die on me. I will certainly notify those that have gone way past their deadlines. If I don't remind me, because I will have gotten sidetracked whilst doing so, and will need a little reminder.--RahrahCome join the #party!19:28, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Recent arrival after long absence here--I always loved this game, I'd love to help out, if this thing still has life in it. Shall I just jump in anywhere? -Skaramuche 03:42, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Activity Check

It appears that most of the people "contributing" to the lexicon are inactive. I believe that they should be notified on their talk pages about their inactivity, and asked to respong. If they have not responded within a week of this notification, they will be removed from the lexicon, and notified of the reason. If they wish to respond, they can do it on this talk page. --AORDMOPRI ! T 21:07, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Fair enough --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:08, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Damn it guys, you you heard the man, you all better get responging! When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 21:27, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm not even on the list of people that's going to get notified, and I've responged already by adding a new article. Aichon 21:51, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Cited. Quite a good respong, too. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 21:59, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I try. :) Aichon 22:05, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
If this thing could come back to life, I'd jump in with both feet. I just didn't want to bother if nobody else was still involved. Or responging.-Skaramuche 03:17, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Considering the lack of activity, is it safe to say that we lost momentum for this lexicon as it currently stands? If so, I see two options:

  1. Abandon it.
  2. Drop everyone, put out a call for new members, set a new start date, and resume where it left off. Eager new members can fill in the existing gaps.

The second option gives us a chance to rebuild some momentum, which is the only way this is going to get back on track. Even if we did fill in the missing gaps that we have right now, we'd never be able to get the current players to all be active, so it's better to just start over with the players but use the work they've already finished. Treat it like a project that was dropped but later picked up by another group. Aichon 04:57, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Do we all have to drop, or just the ones who haven't done their stuff yet? When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 11:49, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
It should be the same either way since I didn't intend for the call for new members to exclude existing members who are still interested in participating. It's just a chance to get some fresh blood in to replace the folks that really aren't participating or interested any longer. Aichon 12:58, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
In that case, reboot this fucker like's a Batman movie. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 19:49, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure that sentence made any sense at all. BUT IT SHALL BE DONE! --RahrahCome join the #party!20:35, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Like it's. Silly typo. :( When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 20:38, 13 December 2009 (UTC)


Because if you truly cared, you'd rejoin the lexicon. And I want to, so i'm first. :P
