    And now time for a fireside chat with the leader of brickfilms liberation….
    Q:
    What is your motivation for running for Minister of Truth?
    A:
    The wiki has been a very good resource for me. The next step is to start citing more sources to make it more reliable.
    Q:
    What are your ideas to expand or improve the Ministry?
    A:
    I will personally go through the wiki and look for errors and will try to cite sources if the previous authors neglected to do so. Another improvement will be to make/encourage more comparison charts
    Q:
    What experience do you have relating to my desired ministry?
    A:
    I have been editing the wiki for a while now.
    Q:How much time would you be able to spend performing my duties as Minister of Discussion?
    A: I will probably be able to look over changes every few days

    Feel free to ask more questions

    Brain, a question. Would you try to bring any new features to the wiki? Like, if there was a new hack for MediaWiki (the wiki software we use) that would be helpful to the wiki, would you add it?

    I would leave that decision to the codemonkeys.

    While I myself use the MLA citation format, I don’t think that would be the best for a wiki. The best would probably be the one with the super script numbers. The reason being that these would be small and out of the way to the reader, but still there for the reader to click on. Just my $0.02. :)

    Yes, but everyone knows MLA.

    Doesn’t matter what format you use. Each one is filled with retardation. I used MLA for a while andit was annoying how many rules people cram into it. Here’s what I think – who cares? Provide the bloody source and you should be done with it.

    There’s no political rightness in writing. If it sounds good, then you’re good

    Yes, but everyone knows MLA.

    But everyone knows how to copy and paste a link better.

    I will give MLA this though, it would help us keep better track of what types of things the references are (books, links, articles, etc).

    I think…
