I believe this has been discussed before, but nothing came of it. I'm re-opening it. We have articles that don't fall into any project. These are articles about authors, years, chats, etc. I think a project including these articles would prosper very well. We do need a name, and a leader before we put it into action. What do you guys think? โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 01:09, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Definetly. I totally agree on this. It would be like any other project, am I correct? Having its own featured article, silver/gold nominations, articles to work on, concerns...?--๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ

I'm pretty sure it would. Anyway, I was thinking of this as well. Rainlegs 01:20, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm thinking it could be called Project: Life? (Terrible with names and stuff!) -- Cherryfur 01:22, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Maybe, Project Reality? โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 01:24, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Project Reality Life? -- Cherryfur 01:25, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I totally agree! And I like Project Reality for the name. Echoblazeโ™ฅ 01:26, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Ooh! I think this idea! Project Reality sounds like an amazing name, since they are part of reality, in a sense. I'd join this project in a heartbeat. Lawliet Meow 01:29, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Project Reality is a great name! Rainlegs 01:31, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I honestly agree! I love that name and think we should use it :) So does everyone agree on making the project? --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 01:33, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I agree to making this project. Atelda insert vague subtext here 01:38, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Icestorm: This has been up for about 10 minutes. XD But, its future looks bright. :) Who do you guys want for a leader? โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 01:40, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Lol! xD I have no preference really, all I want is somebody who is experienced and is fair and friendly :) --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 01:42, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Well, that could be anyone. :) I want this user to be active, too. I don't want this project to go cold fast. :) โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 01:43, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Me neither. Someone who's active, fair, experienced...and...awesome. (Lol everyone here is awesome so that must be hard xD) --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 01:45, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

An active user, Like Moonflight said we wouldn't want a new project to get cold so fast. I totally agree to this project, it's a wonderful idea and I'd join anytime ;) So basically, a user who actually would contribute to this project and help it grow ;) Splook it's a long way down. 01:49, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Do any names come to mind? โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 01:50, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, Moonflight. What about Splashpelt? Or maybe even YOU. Lawliet Meow 01:54, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Or maybe Mistystar139? Atelda insert vague subtext here 01:55, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Either Mistystar of moonflight; both options are great. :) Rainlegs 01:55, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

All of them are great, but perhaps a person who hasn't led a project yet? --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 02:00, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Icestorm, that's why I said Splashpelt. If we're going with ones who haven't lead a project, that would mean Rainlegs, Moonflight, Mistystar, Rainwhisper, Darkhallows, Iceheart and myself are out of the question (I'm going by the leads of all four projects, as of today). Lawliet Meow 02:03, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with all of those names, But I didn't expect mine to be there o.o Anyways, Yeah I feel a user who would benefit from the leadership of this project would be a good choice. Splook it's a long way down. 02:15, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah. --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 02:16, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

This project sounds like a great idea. I support it. :P โ‹Rainey 02:22, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Maybe Cherryfur123... Atelda insert vague subtext here 02:26, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

She just returned from a really long hiatus. Sorry, but she should stick around a bit longer before she's offered a lead position. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 02:28, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps Splashpelt or Atelda. Rainlegs 02:30, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Just a note: Make sure the leader actually knows a bit about the articles that will be in it. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 02:31, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

So should we narrow it down? Someone who hasn't led a project before, and is open to new ideas and able to let the project grow? Ideas on this? Splook it's a long way down. 02:35, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I think Atelda would make a great leader! She's active and has leadership qualities! She'd make a good leader of the new project ;) -- Cherryfur 03:32, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

And knows about the topics. Don't forget that. :3 โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 02:37, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
xD Yes, I agree Splashy. Someone who is open to new ideas, doesn't stay the same, able to contribute to the project and watch it blossom at the side of the Wiki. --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 02:39, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
Lol, I like the word you used there. "Blossom." So we have a user with the understanding of the pages and articles, a user that is able to grow, a user that is open for the project to grow, and a fairly active user. I believe these are pretty good qualifications. Splook it's a long way down. 02:43, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
Flowers. Are. Awesome. xD Anyways, I think one of those users could include my dear Splashy :) --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 02:44, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
I agree. Splashy and Atelda are two possible choices. :D โ‹Rainey 03:33, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
I like this idea. I definitely think Splashpelt should be leader, or Atelda. Someone who's experienced. Mintstar This time for Africa! 03:34, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
Atelda would be a wonderful leader :D She's patient, kind, and experienced. She helped me out when I was new and I really appreciate that. Plus, she's a member of all the projects, so she really knows what to do. Echoblazeโ™ฅ 03:39, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
Well, we have some possible leaders named, but what about deputies? You said you wanted the leader to be a new leader, so should the deputy be a "new deputy" or a experienced one? Splook it's a long way down. 13:04, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
I think the deputy should at least have some knowledge about this project. It doesn't have to be too much, just enough so that he/she understands the topics in the project. โ‹Rainey 13:08, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
It's whoever the leader wants. But now, we're focusing on the leaders. --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 14:08, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
This project sounds like a great idea. ^-^ Maybe Icestorm would be a good choice too. She's had plenty of experience as a lead, and has been with this wiki for a long time. Roo Hawkfrost loverโ™ฅ 14:15, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 17:53, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Just to let everyone know; I'm to create a template for these articles. It'll be like the Charcat. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 17:56, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Oh yes, that's a good idea! --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 18:00, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I was just wondering :) And I agree to the template, It sounds fantastic to have on the articles =D Splook it's a long way down. 18:10, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Lol it's okay xD. Are there anymore ideas for leaders? --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 23:02, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with Rainy, Icestorm would be a wonderful choice in a leader. She's experienced enough and I believe she would be excellent at helping the project grow :) Splook it's a long way down. 23:29, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I think maybe Ivystripe would be a good deputy...Honeybreeze 16:47, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

It's the leader's decision. Plus, Ivystripe has not demonstrated interest in this discussion. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 16:50, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, it is. Are we going to come up with finalists and have users vote between the finalists? --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 17:44, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
That sounds appropriate to me. We should have two finalists, because three might make the outcome even. Splook it's a long way down. 18:46, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
But...there are three suggestions. Atelda, Icestorm, and Splashpelt. So... what do we do? โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 18:51, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
Hm. I guess we could have a three-way vote, It's not like there's much of a risk of being even in general, I suppose. It'll probably be alright with three =) Splook it's a long way down. 19:13, July 5, 2011 (UTC)
It probably would ;) Three-way vote would be fine! Atelda insert vague subtext here 19:24, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hey all. This kind of project was suggested about a year ago by Sandy and me (there was a discussion on the community portal), but never started up - there were no people to manage it as the wiki sank into a kind of general inactivity in Autumn. It's nice to see that it is finally picked up - better late than never. :)

Regarding the leadership, I support Atelda; she is one of the most mature members on the wiki and would be an excellent leader. Icestorm is probably the most experienced of the current members, but I can see that she has just returned from a long inactivity. If she can stick around, I'm OK with it, but overall I'd prefer someone who is constantly active.

"create a template for these articles" - What do you mean? There are lots of different-themed articles, we surely cannot use the same template e.g. on an Author page and on a Chat page. Maybe we can make a Charcat-like template for the Authors (that contains a picture, birthdate, occupation, location etc), but I see no point in adding info boxes to pages like chats, years, fan movement etc.

This project can also manage non-article pages; such as the Main Page, the Community Portal etc. The name "Project Reality" doesn't sound too right to me, but I cannot come up with anything better either.

Good luck and kind regards. :) Helixtalk 19:30, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

I think this project is a great idea! but I agree with Helix Project reality? sounds a little off, it dosen't really click quite right.Oh no! emergency!CanyonsongCandypaw to the rescue! 20:42, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Helix: I mean to cover the the articles that will be in the Project; Authors, Illustrators, etc. I just threw the idea out there. It's little more than an idea at this point.

Can you guys think of a better name? I mean, Project Charart is a mouth full. Everyone loves that. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 20:52, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure, I really do like Project Reality. --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 23:07, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

The only other thing I can think of is Project Globe or something, But Project Globe sounds a lot like Project World. So I don't know, really. :P Splook it's a long way down. 23:09, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hi I'm kinda new--I was wondering if I could join the project and if I could if somebody could help me understand exactly WHAT to do. Lol :P 23:16, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Well, it's not set up yet. But to give you a main idea - it's based on the outside of Warriors, like the authors and illustrators and that stuff. But, for the project name, I think it's fine. Overall, the main page is basically "real" not about a Warriors character or something, so I believe the name is fine. --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 23:19, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Project Reality, our original name, overall seems the best. It's different from the other names and basically spells out what it includes (like our other projects), But I don't know about the other's thoughts. So, I don't know. Splook it's a long way down. 23:24, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Well, We could choose the official name at a later date. Right now our most important part is our leader, and who will accept the name and all :P Splook it's a long way down. 23:46, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Yes. First, I think we should choose the leader first, and then we can talk about the name. The new leader can choose what name he/she wants? --๐ŸŽƒAppledash๐ŸŽƒ 00:02, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Splook it's a long way down. 00:03, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Mmmm...I think that the name's still kind of important, but it can be decided after the leader is named. And to be honest, if the project would manage the Community Portal and such (which I think is a brilliant idea) then "Project Reality doesn't sound quite right. Atelda insert vague subtext here 00:40, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Well what does sound right? I can't come up with any other name for it. I think that name suits it very well. :3 Roo Hawkfrost loverโ™ฅ 00:43, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

The name was fine in the beginning. Why the sudden change? Splook it's a long way down. 00:44, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

We don't have to decide right now. nor do we have to change it. It was just a suggestion. Atelda insert vague subtext here 00:48, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

asdfghjklCome on people. We need to decide a leader. Go. Give names. Now. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 00:50, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

I thought we were going to vote. xD Atelda insert vague subtext here 00:58, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

True beans. I'll go do that now. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 01:00, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... thinking.. โ˜ฏโ’ทโ“โ“Šโ’บโ˜ฏโ˜พOkami Power. Woot.โ˜ฝ

19:03, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

The vote can be found here. Splook it's a long way down. 03:06, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Atelda is leader. :) Now what? Should we go to creating the project now? โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 16:13, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

Yep. As for deputy, it's Icestorm of course. Congrats, Icestorm! Atelda insert vague subtext here 16:19, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

congrats Atelda! yeah we should probably create another project page, oh wait first we should decide on a name.Oh no! emergency!CanyonsongCandypaw to the rescue! 16:56, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

Project Reality appears as an generally accepted name. โ˜พMoonflightโ˜ฝ 16:58, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
