It looks good to me overall, I like the formatting of the various text.

Transferred the contents of this proposal into a stylized table format:
http://kuhli.wikidot.com/item-arsenal-table-format

Just to give us ideas on how we can organize the various factions.

I will be inactive for a time. I will probably be back on August 7th.

Don't burn down the site while I am not looking and if something is to be deleted or severely changed, I wish to receive a copy of the deleted/changed work in question, as well as a copy of the attached forum thread.

So, see you later.

Until next time.

Where might one look? The Item Arsenal, but because there are so many Items with bizarre titles such as Hime Akumu, with no means of even slightly distinguishing what their actual purpose or range/method of destruction might be, operatives will have to spend forever searching through the database for something that might help with their situation.

Thank you Quispy this basically sums up what I was attempting to say.

@Cad you want to share your thoughts on this?

I'm all for dividing them. The Item Arsenal is the database of all the Insurgency's anomalous weaponry, but it has zero organization to it. Let's assume that the upper echelon has decided to extinguish the population of an entire medium sized village in somewhere in Africa because its diamond mines will be of use to us, but we don't want to go in there guns a'blazing, because it may alarm others of our presence before we have the chance to fortify our new location.

This is applicable out-of-universe too, for anybody wanting to make a tale that ties into other events or utilizes the works of others because it fits in with what they're trying to create, but have not yet read every article to know the capabilities of everything.

It's mainly the issue that it feels a bit derivative of the SCP's Message from the Administrator. That has always been a problem in certain people's eyes since the CI wiki's inception. I am to blame for some of those if not all those problems.

Mostly I feel that the guide may need some rewrites as back than I was a teenager when it was written.

The second reason is that this was written way back at the beginning of the CI wiki.

This was when I was trying to push my version of the canon onto the site as the main canon.

The Haos Doctrine was originally envisioned as written by a person who was shadowy and behind the scenes.

However now Haos is different as a character and as a symbol. What he is now is another matter.

Basically what I want to say is this is a discussion of should we change the Haos Doctrine? What should we change if we go that route?

Or should it be replaced with something new to better fit the direction the state is now taking if we are taking a different path than what I previously envisioned?

I pray this makes sense.

Could you specify what you mean with "spaced out"? I am open to the idea of reorganisation, but a numbered list or dividing the items don't seem such a good idea to me.

There may already be a solution for this in the "CI-Bases" page. If we could update that list one would have just to remember a "Base Number". The facilities are even in universe described so that one would search for something we have a lot of in "Base Eight", something dangerous in "Base Three" or "Base Four" for example. (Where DID we park the end of days engine?)

Re: Item organization by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 26 Jul 2020 20:36

Why?

I think it still holds up nicely. Was there some event involving the piece that I don't know of recently or has this been a long standing issue?

If you want to rewrite it I am willing to help should such help be wanted (I got myself another copy of the original right now).


Fighting Monsters and Language since 2016.

Welcome back.

Cheers to the future and the past.

I agree with spacing them out.

I feel the opposite though in regards to waiting for categories. Waiting until more articles appear will just make the process seem more unprecedented.

Re: Item organization by QuispyQueemsQuispyQueems, 26 Jul 2020 19:33

All I'm asking for is that we format the item arsenal page in a way so that the items are spaced out and not just bunched up together.

As to separating them into categories though, We can wait on that.

Re: Item organization by EdAWACSdenyYEdAWACSdenyY, 26 Jul 2020 18:53

I second this. With the addition of Sekhmet, we now possess 50 articles within the Arsenal (yay!), but it would be nice to have another means of organizing the list rather than just by date of creation.

Usefulness, I feel, would be a means of categorization too difficult to sort things out by. If we developed a means of categorization along the lines SCP's Safe/Euclid/Keter classifications, we could divvy the articles up that way. But how?

I know we don't have a solid means of accessing kill grades just yet, but if we were to make a chart, we could assort Items through that. Our main thing is the weaponization of anomalies, so what better way would the CI have of organizing them than their ability to mass destroy or lack thereof?

Edit: Other suggestions from users on Discord:

  • Keep as is
  • Alphabetical arrangement

It's been too long I will say it here.

I've tried to ignore it and wallow in the past using obsurity to do what I myself could not

But it's time to stop that.

I'm considering rewriting the Haos Doctrine or if that's unfeasible replacing it.

I have some ideas of what to use.


Former CI Wiki Administrator Now just CI Wiki member: | Tuum Est: It's up to you

Simply, we should find a way to organize the item arsenal in some way.

For me personally, when it comes to looking up a certain article unless I bookmarked it, it's hard to keep track off especially given how many new articles are in the Item Arsenal.

I'm proposing something simple like how useful the item etc.

Thoughts and ideas?

Item organization by EdAWACSdenyYEdAWACSdenyY, 24 Jul 2020 05:30

Hi everyone, (hi Cadbury, in particular, it's been so long)

The world's in a crazy place, most days I'm inside and I recently got a new computer.

I'm considering returning to a semi-active state on the site now (yes NOW of all times)

I may or may not post any new material as my imagination is still as dry as a river in drought.

But I will definitely be a more active presence.

For those of you who are still around, I missed you all so much. Reading through the site we all contributed to gave me nostalgia pangs (and reopened some old emotional wounds too) But I look forward to interacting with every one new and old.

It's time I stopped wallowing in the past and face the present
