Catching up with Sobel Wiki

My friend Mia has posted an end-of-the-year update on her conlang Nevashi. Being a highly suggestable person, this has led me to post a similar update on the status of my own geek project, the Sobel Wiki.

Since its creation at the end of August 2010, the Sobel Wiki has expanded to include 2124 pages, and 436 photos and maps. This actually sounds more impressive than it is, because about three fifths of those 2124 pages are actually For All Nails vignettes and footnotes in the Sobel Wiki FAN archive, most of which were written about ten years ago. Thus, the actual number of encyclopedia-type articles on For Want of a Nail is closer to 850, and that includes redirects, navboxes, and other behind-the-scenes wiki stuff. That works out to about two-thirds of an article per day over the three years and four months since I created the Sobel Wiki.

On a more hopeful note, the last year has seen the Sobel Wiki community grow by an astonishing thirty-three percent, due to the arrival of a new Sobel enthusiast, Christina Taylor. Christina has created a timeline of events in FWoaN and a list of rulers, as well as articles on Japan, Italy, and Florida, and the most recent FAN vignette, "A Shogun Falls".

So stay tuned to the Johnny Pez blog for all the latest breaking Sobel Wiki news.
