Brand new forums
The Elephant 6 wiki now has a forum, thanks to the hard work of Kai, the owner of the wiki. In other news, I have been promoted to a bureaucrat. Check out the forum, and keep editing!

We need content
The Elephant Six wiki is off to a good start so far, and I'd like to immensely thank all who have contributed so far. We really appreciate all the time and effort that users have put into helping us form this wiki. The wiki continues to grow, and we're getting new articles and attracting new users every day. However, we still have a lot more content that needs to be added.
I implore anyone who is a viewer of the wiki, who does not currently have an account, to sign up and become a user. One thing that will help this wiki grow is having more of a sense of community. After all, that's what really makes a good wiki, a strong community of users backing it up and helping to form it, constantly creating new content and updating existing pages to help the wiki grow and become even stronger. Another thing I really encourage, is that once you become a user, please start helping to contribute to the wiki.
Like it was stated, this wiki is still off to a start, and still needs more content to help it grow. We're looking for users that have their own specific knowledge on various Elephant 6 subjects and musical projects. Don't have much to add but still want to help? Please, go around to different pages, look for any errors you may notice, help make sure everything is formatted properly, or maybe even add just a small tidbit to help make an article more unique.
Recently, I went ahead and updated the user profiles. They're now a bit more interactive and extensive, and allow you to do a bit more. You can now do things such as upload your own avatar, add a bit of info about yourself so people can get to know you better, leave shouts on other peoples pages and vice versa which also serves as a nice way to leave messages for people, as well as add people as friends and more easily keep in touch with other users. The profiles also offer a more accessible way to view items such as pages you are watching, and contributions you have made to the wiki, as well as allowing other users to see what you have contributed.
You also have the option to switch from the new updated profile, and back to your user page, where you can create a page about yourself as well, just as you would any article. So feel free to go check it out, all you need to do is click on your username in the top right of the page to bring you right to your profile. You can also check out my profile to see an example of what the updated system looks like.
Hope you all enjoy the updates, and please, always feel free to offer suggestions for new things to be added to the wiki, new features you think should be implemented, as well as any errors you may come across, etc. And with the new profiles in place, you can also feel free to go and leave me a message on my profile to help get my attention and leave feedback on all of this
Your friendly wiki administrator
