ToDo list

MuseWiki, wiki for the band Muse
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of ideas which are deemed either sorely needed, useful or interesting. If you're looking for something to help out with, look no further!

Royal pains in the arse

  • Publicise. Srsly, need wider exposure.
  • Replace all instances of Image: with File:
  • Use Template:Backto at the foot of each page
  • Hunt for links to and bypass redirects
  • Roll out the setlist template

Layout and appearance

  • Hunt artefacts visible with various layout engines and fix them
  • Investigate recent CSS implementation, seeing whether any could be used to improve MuseWiki's appearance
  • Wade through our templates and simplify/prettify if at all possible
  • Investigate, design and implement a way of laying out media verification hash tables within pages
  • Typographical students and those in the know: check whether our conventions are correct
  • People with Internet Explorer 8: Keep checking the wiki to make sure it displays correctly with IE8. IE is notorious for its layout engine being incomplete and buggy and MuseWiki developers don't use Windows.
  • Use <p> instead of <div> and tables where appropriate, instead using appropriate CSS rules.

Resources, searching and verification

  • Scrape various media (anyone near a national library or a proficient human web-spider?) for press/coverage relating to Muse, add it to our reference archive
  • Find circular references within MuseWiki articles, remove and provide rationale for doing so on the article's talk page.
  • Get the official Muse board and Muselive to make sure topic IDs don't change. This is a real verification headache.
  • Transcribe various audio and video interviews and add to our media reference archive.
  • Anyone who knows a language other than English: translate foreign-language articles and add to our media reference archive.
  • Use our reference archive to write and/or expand MuseWiki articles, adding references as appropriate.
  • Write comprehensive help.


  • Hunt authorship and source information for uploaded files, tell authors about creative commons and ask whether they'd be happy licensing under a CC licence (tres cool)
  • Descriptions for files which currently have none


  • Expand and clean up the gear section—particularly suited to musicians in the know.


  • For gigs you went to: add information. Please encourage others to do so as well!
  • Make sure our links to recordings are up to date, add any that are missing.
  • Use recordings to construct and complete speech tables.
    • Anyone who knows a language aside from English: transcribe and translate foreign speech.


  • Rescue videos from YouTube using youtube-dl, upload to DailyMotion and change links from MuseWiki to point to DailyMotion (to mitigate Warner f******y).

Codemonkey bananas

  • Use HTML5 audio instead of the flash player for Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari
  • Make references work for people who are not logged in
  • TLS/SSL?
  • Set up wiki bots for admins
  • Get rid of px usage and use oooonly em


  • Get each member of Muse to join and edit. Also known as "take over the world", with originality.
