As someone who’s edited a few wikis but is new to this site, there’s a few things I find frustrating about the SWDB. The info on movies, DVD, etc. is really useful, but pages on major figures like Leone seem rather lacking. Then I find that there are longer articles on him, but they’re hidden in an articles category which you need to go looking for elsewhere.
So I think the navigation could be better. (It doesn’t help that the Sitemap is a blank page with an “under construction” message, & has been for two years.)
Also, is there any kind of manual of style, or formatting guidelines? There seems a lot of inconsistency about things like whether film titles are italicised, whether actors’ names are linked, etc. & A few things I find baffling, like why photos of actors are captioned with their date of birth, when a caption noting what film & year the still is from would seem more useful.
I’m trying not to be overly negative, but maybe it helps to have a fresh perspective on this. Plus I would like to try & straighten a few of these things out, but don’t want to go ahead without at least some consensus. & If there is any interest in this issue, I think it would help to get some more definitive guidelines together.
