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!

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.

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 :)

4. The contest ends around May 1st.  There may or may not be more contests, until the prizes are given out.

.. So far, disappointed.  Let's get wiki-ing, people.  I may have to enter the contest, make people beat me to get some entries going!

And we thank you for it!  Seriously.

 I was a little more optimistic about the contest, I was hoping for 5-10-15 people to compete.  Imagine, 10 people, 20 pages minimum = 200+ pages.   Would have been a nice jump.  So far, pretty quiet.  "It's still anyone's game!"

You got it... I'm going for the 30-year T-shirt, or either MUScoop long sleeve. Yeah, I graduated, but I'll cross oceans for free t-shirts.

Of course, there's a qualitative measure to this contest that will come into play (so these numbers don't mean everything), but for the stat-heads here's the activity since the contest was launched.

Great stats, Rock.   I think I might have vaulted into the lead, though.

I used the Wayback machine to bring up 1996-7 and went nuts for the last couple hours.  Schedule, photo, coaches, every player.   My cutter and my paster are worn out.

The info, of course, was dated.  So like John Cliff's page has info as if he's a freshman.    But at least all those guys have a starting place with lots of info.  Sure brought back memories .. Hutch, Cliff, Polo, Pieper, Bart!, Bargen, Faisel, on and on.

Yes indeed, you just made my procrastination even harder.  But hey, I'm still gonna ask people that - even if they aren't aiming to win - add a few new pages.    Like Damon Key and Robb Logterman still need pages added.  I know there are a few people on the site that count these guys as some of their favorite players - why not add a page for them!

Well .. I did say the contest would end "around" May 1st.  I think I need to extend it a week to give people a chance to BEAT ME!

P.S. .. how have I been doing this?  It's all from the tip from MU CHI_IL .. go here: 

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.gomarquette.com

.. And you can bring  up dozens of pages from past MU rosters, stats, links, etc.   Unfortunately, that well is getting drained.  There's still some great stuff there, though.

Another great place to cut/paste is the MU media guide PDF on gomarquette.com .. lots of stuff there.

Additionally, one way of finding "new" pages to create is from my new master list of players:

http://wiki.muscoop.com/doku.php/men_s_basketball/alphabetical_player_list
or
http://wiki.muscoop.com/doku.php/men_s_basketball/year_by_year_player_list

Players in red need to be "adopted"!

Hey, I said "about a day" - that could be 7 days :P  I'll just keep posting stats daily until you say it's over...

3. Tom Crean Coaching Book - Autographed
4. MUScoop.com Shirt (Limited Edition)
5. Heartfelt atta-boy (with optional pat on back)

Im going to go with the MUScoop shirt. Finals are actually next week, but I have a very heavy load towards the beginning of the week and I have two papers and an exam this week.
