Though the idea for an X Japan wiki probably isn't an original one, it has been in my thoughts for a really long time (almost as long as the XF webpage one :P ) and right now I have gotten so far that I now only need people to help fill it with some basic stuff before it will be opened (I know that a wiki is something everyone should be able to contribute to, but I think that it needs some basic stuff in it before allowing that).

So, if you are-
  • An X-Freak
  • Want to help building a comprehensive information database about X, X-Japan and related projects
  • Able to write in English without too many mistakes (you don't have to be at native-speaker level, texts can be always be proof-read before posting)
  • Have a bit of free time to spare,

then please contact me in MSN or post here and I'll contact you. The job mostly involves gathering info from different available sources and writing it up into the wiki in correct format and such. Sometimes you have to be a little creative, sometimes just copy&paste information.

So, if you are interested, please let me know :)

Thanks!


PS: The X-Freaks Web page thing is still in work :P

Mondaye, we'll contact you when we need someone who knows French! :)

Everyone else should have gotten a PM from me.

And we are always looking for more help :)

I want to help too... :)

I've already write the X JAPAN page in wikipedia Indonesia ... I put up some trivia about X in that page, since there are no trivia about X JAPAN in the English wikipedia :P

If you want me to translate those trivia for the english page, just ask ... I'll do it :)

none of your business ...

I would like to volunteer myself, in case the idea would be put into reality. I could either offer my help as writer and or translator.

As a suggestion, in case we would find the ppl for it, we could put up articles in several languages, considering that there may be ppl out there who may have problems in English. So in this case, I could offer my help in writing German articles or translate whatever there may pop up in German into English.

It's in a coma right now but I'm hoping to revive it soon. Might be during the summer. Of course everybody can contribute and write stuff there all the time.
