Nothing to be said about me.

Main task

My main task, if I ever get around to it, is to remove as much as of the fan fiction as possible from this wiki, while trying to preserve pages and keep all the episode information available.

I am heavily involved in the "2010 Election Thread" at AlternateHistory.com, which is a fan fiction endeavour to chronicle the West Wing universe's 2010 election in real-time, through newspaper articles and such. Some frequenters of that thread originally used that to "update" this wiki, thus causing the current predicament with increased fan fiction being added by various anons (it is mostly independent of that thread now). For that, I'm sorry.

Wiki size

There are easily more than 20,000 articles that could be made based on The West Wing universe, without having to resort to fanfic nonsense. Off the top of my head:

Production Articles
  • Series (The West Wing)
    • Seasons 1-7
      • Individual episodes
  • VHS?/DVD/Blu-Ray releases
  • Any other franchise media I'm unaware of. (I know there's a non-canon "conversation" written by Sorkin between Santos and Obama somewhere).
  • Production staff
    • Every actor
    • Every director, writer, producer
    • Every small-time production staff credited at some point in any episode
In-Universe Articles
  • Characters
    • Every Character credited by name in the series
    • Every Character mentioned by name in the series
    • Several uncredited characters (if not all) in the series
  • In-Universe concepts, events, and settings
    • Similar to Wikipedia, easily discernible events (like the elections, wars, battles) and all places (cities, buildings even) that are shown in the series probably could have a page
    • Other concepts, like organizations (political parties, caucuses), political titles, et cetera.
