I'm User:Waldir on several Wikimedia projects and I've been commenting on the blog as "Waldir".


recurring maintenance tasks
sysop one-time tasks
  • Style the wiki! Example of what can be done: http://setiquest.org/wiki
  • Edit text shown when someone tries to edit the main page to say that the actual comic page can be changed
  • Add Menu-to-tabs gadget
  • Add 6tabs gadget
non-sysop one-time tasks
  • use lowercase xkcd everywhere on the wiki (see How do I write "xkcd"?)
  • Use a single template for comic pages!
  • Once creation process is stabilized, make the "add yours" link/inputbox on the main page point to a Help:How to add a new comic page (see also {{create}})
  • Use a local help/FAQ page and link it from the sidebar rather than mediawiki's vanilla help which isn't very friendly.
  • {{comic}} should add a zero-padded DEFAULTSORT
bot edits
  • rename comic pages to "number: title" (on hold until consensus in page title format is reached)
  • rename section "Description" to "Explanation"
  • add {{Comic discussion}} to all comic pages
  • remove unused imagesize= parameter from {{comic}} (it's on the documentation in case anyone needs it)
  • add redirects from 1.png, etc, to the actual filenames
  • Add links to original comics from xkcd (and hotlink to images). Also, format image pages in standard fashion (comic images, characters...)
  • Extension:Contribution Scores to gamify the wiki a little :D
  • Extension:Comments
  • Try to get a rendered feed of Special:NewPages, instead of [5]
    • Maybe it would really be a good idea to move comics to a comic namespace, otherwise spam pages would crop up. Besides, even without spam, other non-comic but otherwise valid wiki pages would show too... An alternative solution is using a custom rendering engine other than mediawiki, then page title patterns could be enforced. Finally, add RSS link on sidebar.
