So I decided to try my hand and contributing.
I'm a little confused, though.

The page for NegaVerse was empty. So I created one. I got most of the way through the writing when I went to check a reference somewhere else and noticed the link to NegaVerse was blue. Clicking over, I found that someone had already transferred from the old wiki. So that was weird. I had already written a shitload, though, so I went ahead and published it. I did modify it to include the format for nega-humans that was already in use. And I included all the stuff that was in the entry before. I took some liberties, though. I hope you all like the entry.

I was just looking through it, I didn't realize we had so much great stuff on the NegaVerse.

Probably what happened is that you had different capitalization - Negaverse and NegaVerse are two different wiki entries. I try to go in and write #REDIRECT pages whenever I notice stuff like that.

Thanks. :) There was already a lot of good stuff but I went ahead and expanded it.

Oh wait, I see now. There's a page for NegaVerse and a page for The NegaVerse.

I haven't decided on a strict standardization yet, but what I've been trying to do is set up page titles without things like a leading "The" or a plural "-s" to start to have some uniformity. So I'll probably move everything to just the NegaVerse entry.

That makes sense. A minimalist approach would be easier to remember in editing.

Did you pull the opening paragraph from somewhere or is that yours? It's a great dimension concept.

Thank you, its mine. But many of the underlying ideas were already there, I just pulled them together. Glad you like it.

I took similar liberties with the Astral but that one was a little harder to fill out.

I enjoy concept writing, so this is pretty fun for me.

I think that the Astral Plane should have a more Awesome name, after all, that's where the Dread Pirate 2x2 lives. My current idea is that he resides on the Battle Plains of Ragnablok, awaiting the final confrontation.

I also like the Battle Plains of Ragnablok, so I'll add it to the Multiverse.

*edit*

Battle Plates of Ragnablok. Hard to let a good pun go.

*superedit*

There's that, then. Was fun to write. And it tied up some loose threads neatly, I should think.

I restructured the locations page to consolidate and make it a little more logically consistent. In the process, though, I left a couple of pages floating around. For example, I copied over the PoliceStation stuff last night. But tonight I went ahead and grouped that description with the others on a single page so navigation would be easier. Nothing links to the PS page anymore, but I know its still there because I can search for it. I don't know if that really matters (since nothing links to them now) but I thought I'd let you know, Stubby. I either don't have the ability to delete pages or I don't know how.

The Police station page was already a redirect to Police, which had all of the information from Police station, I thought.

When I copied over the information from the other wiki, PoliceStation was empty. That's why I copied it over. I just checked, though, and there is a Police page as well as the PoliceStation page...oddly enough, with different shit linked. In any case, it was too generic to have its own page. Navigating back and forth for a paragraph is a royal pain in the ass..which is why I consolidated all that stuff into Structures.
