* Al's Run 2015



It's that time again.

Al's Run is right around the corner.   We neglected to do this last year .. but last time we ran a Al's Run Donation Drive, we hit nearly $5000 in donations from MU Basketball Fans.  Let's hit that again.

How?  Well, duh.  Heart string tugging.  You love Marquette Basketball, Al McGuire, and you remember those huge crowds outside McCormick, waiting for the race to begin.

And you've suckled at the teat that is MUScoop for NINE years.  All done through some serious effort by rocky, spiral, SoCal, and mu_hilltopper.

So do us a solid, and pony up a few bucks.  It all goes to a great cause, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.  Sure, some will pledge $25, $50, $500 .. but imagine if even half of MUScoopers gave $5 each.   Or $19.77, that's fine too.

WIKI CONTEST!
« on: April 17, 2007, 10:16:14 PM »
WIKI CONTEST

As you may know, MUScoop.com hosts a Marquette Wiki that focuses on all things Marquette Athletics.   
 
I have been amazed at the growth of the wiki, as it opened 8 short months ago, and already contains several hundred pages, mostly centered around MU basketball.
 

*You want to know who MU is recruiting for 2007-08?  Boom.  Here it is. 
*How about the known information for next year's schedule? 
*The all-time assist leaders?
*How about Doc Rivers' biography?
*You want to know the Cross Country team roster from 2006?
*How about the soccer team?
*The Women's Basketball team?
*Or maybe you just need the recipe to make your own batch of Real Chili. 

Ok, ok, there's a lot of great information there.  While 2006-07's information is thoroughly entered, we need your help.  The ultimate vision is that this Wiki is the best source for MU reference for all years and all sports.
 
Don't know what a wiki is?  Basically, it starts as a blank slate and volunteers like you write and edit information into the wiki.  Much of this is through cutting and pasting things that are already on the web.  For example, all the box-scores for 2006 were graciously entered in their proper places by a dedicated volunteer, cutting and pasting the data into the proper place.
 
But a wiki is only as good as its volunteers!
 
So, I'm running a contest to pique your interest.  Hopefully, a series of contests.
 
Rules:
1. Whoever adds the most content, wins. 
2. Minimum to win a grand prize:  20 chunks or pages.  (These are good prizes.)  To count, a "chunk" has got to be 3-4 sizable paragraphs or one multi-row table.
3. Any tie will be broken by my judgment of Wiki entry quality. 
4. The contest ends around May 1st.  There may or may not be more contests, until the prizes are given out.
5. I'm making this up as I go.  I reserve the right to dink around with these rules!
 
The winner will CHOOSE ONE of these FABULOUS prizes from the GRAND PRIZE LIST:
 
1. Dwyane Wade Figurine.  Yup.  I'm donating one for the cause.
2. 30th Anniversary T-Shirt (M)
3. Tom Crean Coaching Book - Autographed
4. MUScoop.com Shirt (Limited Edition)
5. Heartfelt atta-boy (with optional pat on back)
Want to write Rick Majerus' bio?  Help us out.

Know something about the soccer team?  Help us out. 

Maybe you could help us with box scores from 2005? 
 
Basketball season is over!

TV shows are going into re-runs.  You have nothing to do.   Help us with the wiki!

NOTE: It'd be nice to keep a running commentary in this thread of any pages you make.   Feel free to link people to your work!  People will read it, perhaps edit your page and make it better!

This one?  http://wiki.muscoop.com/doku.php/men_s_basketball/all-time_series_records

Sure, why not.  Such a huge page deserves credit for at least 3 pages. 

You are officially in the lead!

The word endeavor is spelled wrong the Roney Eford page. I tried to change it, but I'm new here and all I have is read-only access.

I think I have two shirts .. a gold XXXL (it's giant, but not preposterous.) .. And a blue one, I think that's either M or L.  Both are long sleeved.

Ooooo a leaderboard would really hit the spot!

The best Grand Grand Prize would be some Ahoya license plates!

Code /code will NOT work.

HOWEVER .. I've had the same problem in the past .. I just stumbled upon a GREAT resource.  It's a webpage that you can cut and past HTML to, and it will convert the HTML into Wiki language.

http://diberri.dyndns.org/wikipedia/html2wiki/index.html

Make sure you select "DocuWiki" on the drop down before "convert" is clicked.  Presto.  I tested it on some simple stuff, so have no idea how perfect it converts, but I think it will help a lot.

Great start so far all!  As an FYI - here is a link to the wiki syntax overview: wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:syntax.  It is quite simple, fairly concise, and easy reference.  If you run into anything that doesn't seem to be answered feel free to post your question here!

When does the current contest end?  I'm a terrible procrastinator, but I'm determined to win the autographed book.  Look for all my entries at midnight before the cutoff date :)
