Hey everybody! My name is Scott, and I'm a big fan of the SGU and an aspiring transcriptionist. I look forward to helping get this project ramped up again! I'm also slowly upgrading my regular Wikipedia skills. Here's my userpage over there.

Here are some things I want to do while I'm here:

  • update generic formatting for comments like (laughter) (laughs) and [inaudible] (no capitalizations here)
  • select all, copy, paste, find, and replace all [X]: with [X]: to bold all the Rogues' initials in the transcripts, as I have done in my first transcript, SGU Episode 762.
  • italicize all the It's time for "Science or Fiction" voiceovers
  • create "new noisy" subsections in all the WTN sections
  • get admins to add a "SoF with a theme" cat. table entry into the episode features subcategory
  • Update the QoW collection table, SGU reading list, Favorite Rogues Quotes, University entries, etc.
  • merge into or create "Signoff/Announcements" sections or just delete "Announcements" sections if it's just the voiceover Outro
  • add wikitionary links to the What's the Word? segments for definitions if it's not good for a wiki link
  • add references next to the external links
  • add a vocab list like the one in Episode 581
  • get admins to move the entries for whole episodes to the end of category topics' lists so that segment redirects can be visible first

Templates I have made/like to use[edit]

I made a template for showing a colorful breakdown of the Science or Fiction results, based on a suggestion from user BShirley:

{{SoFResults}}

Template:SOFResults is a formatted entry for SoF colored results at the end of each SoF segment

Templates to use for quotes and cultural references[edit]

{{42}}

Template:42 creates an in-line link to the Wikipedia subsection about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference to the answer 42. Useful for when you don't feel like typing out/copy-and-pasting the long link.

{{mostly dead}}

Template:Mostly dead creates an in-line link to the "mostly dead" Wikiquote from The Princess Bride. Useful for when you don't feel like typing out the whole wikiquote link.

In both references above you can see in the markup that I used the templates! Clicking the link to the template in this Wiki will show you just how long the markup text being called is!
