Oblivion Places Redesign Project

I've initiated a new massive undertaking, namely to revamp all of the Oblivion place pages, as described at UESPWiki:Oblivion Places Redesign Project. The plan is to expand and improve the pages describing the various ruins and caves. For those familiar with the recent revamp of the Oblivion NPC pages, this project will be somewhat similar in that I'll be generating a large part of each page's contents automatically from construction set data. Editors will then need to integrate the computer-generated content into the existing pages and improve it. However, this is a much more complex undertaking than the Oblivion NPC pages, which is why I've opted to create a formal redesign project.

I'm announcing it primarily to solicit some feedback from the community on the layout and contents of the new pages. I've put together some examples: [[UESPWiki:Oblivion Places Redesign Project/Example|a new page layout]], [[UESPWiki:Oblivion Places Redesign Project/Data|the automatically-generated data]], and [[UESPWiki:Oblivion Places Redesign Project/Map Overlay|the automatically-generated map overlay]]. There are still a few more tweaks that I'll probably be doing, but I think these examples are close enough to the final version that it would help me a lot to hear from people. Does the new page layout have all the information you think you'd need when exploring a dungeon? If you might be interested in getting involved with the project, do you think you could make use of the automatically-generated info?

Also, if there are any editors who are looking for something to work on, feel free to sign up for the project and get involved. I'd like to try to get this past the planning stages and make it possible for people to start working on pages within the next week or so. Or if you're really eager, you could start right now with working on some of the places that are already provided at [[UESPWiki:Oblivion Places Redesign Project/Data|Data]] or [[UESPWiki:Oblivion Places Redesign Project/Map Overlay|Map Overlay]] ;) --NepheleTalk 02:55, 5 May 2007 (EDT)
