The Stub-Stomping Editathon (an editathon) is an event for any and all FTB Wiki users to take part in. It starts on August 23rd (Tuesday) and ends after August 25th (Thursday) (it's a 3-day event). It's more of a "mini-editathon" to celebrate the end of the summer. This editathon focuses on improving existing content that needs it, rather than creating new content. This includes expanding Stubs, correcting Articles needing style editing, updating Articles in need of updating, etc. No prizes or anything, this editathon is just for the funz.

Participants

  1. Xbony2 (probably fixing tone stuff)
  2. TheSatanicSanta (kinda probably maybe)
  3. Chocohead (fighting with duplicate parameters whilst not on breaks)
  4. Retep998 (not actually participating)
  5. PaladinAHOne (rewriting everything bony wrote; watching power supply explode)
  6. ImmortalPharaoh7 (going to fix stuff in mods that he likes)

Outcome

This editathon was created last minute and not advertised, so there were no new users, just staff (at least it was 6 this time and not 4). The results were disappointing. It can't be considered a total failure, since there were a fair number of pages cleaned up, but there were not as many pages improved as hoped for/expected. Oh well. The next editathon will be at an unknown date; hopefully we'll be able to get one in before the 2016-2017 Marathon, but only if we can find an excuse to do so.
