Robin Hobb wiki/who's who

Shamelessly spamming your friends list by x-posting this to a_fool_too_late, buckkeep, fitz_is_stupid and hobblings.

I know that during many years, there's been lots of talk about a need for the kind of character list that would link characters together and help people who are looking for quick info like "who was Ekke again" or "how were Wintrow and Althea related". I finally decided to start the project, and chose a "weapon" I hope many are familiar with, the MediaWiki script which is also used at *the* Wikipedia. I'm quite new to the script, only having contributed to one small wiki in the past, so I'm still learning things about it as we speak. However, I wanted to let you all know about it at this point, so I can hear suggestions and improve things towards something that would serve as many needs as possibly. So, without further ado:


I'm a bit paranoid about spammers and other vermin, and having experienced getting hacked through scripts before, I've made registeration necessary for those who want to add and edit articles. It's really easy to register though, you don't need to give any trivial info like your shoe size or subscribe to any newsletters. ;) It's just a username-email address-password procedure. I hope it doesn't discourage anyone from participating. :)
