Hello. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but I wasn't sure which workshop was best. I asked in Ask The Tropers
, and it seems like it should be here, if only because of the sprawling nature of the problem.
Basically, the Star Wars
pages are very poorly organized. The main Franchise page contains a lengthy description, links to the pages for the individual movies, links to parodies of the series, and a trope list. Here's the problem: the Expanded Universe is linked to as a separate
Franchise page, and its tropes are relegated there. It seems to me as if the main Franchise page should include all of the indexed works and tropes in the franchise, and not just the movies. If page size is an issue, the description is quite bulky, and probably doesn't need to be.
Another concern is the character pages. As it stands, the main character page provides links to the character pages for the Original, and Prequel trilogies, and a third page that contains characters that appear in both, or are less important. There is no link to the character pages for the Expanded Universe. And the Expanded Universe's character sheet is also rather haphazardly organized.
In short, Franchise/StarWars is effectively Film/StarWars, while everything that makes it a Franchise is left to the side.
Here's my proposition: an integration and organization of the information and tropes on the Star Wars Expanded Universe
page into the main Franchise page, a reorganization of the Character Sheets for the entire series, making them easier to navigate and find relevant information, and a trimming down of the main description.
I am willing to do most of the grunt work on this myself. I came here mostly for approval, advice, and instruction and assistance, if and when I need it.
Thank you for your time.
...for this night and all the nights to come.
