When Wookiepedia is too big...

It's... unwieldy.
It needs a DITL-Like website, maybe with, say... a somewhat interactive size chart. I like one particular implementation, it's... oh yeah, DITL's. ;-)

Just a random thought I just had.

We worked pretty hard on the size comparison charts! Thanks for noticing :)

DITL is hand crafted HTML maintained by myself. Wiki cannot support the features that we have, at least not in the way we do them. For example there is only one ships list. It drives the ships menu, the calculators pages, the fleets menu, the size comp system and the relevant galleries pages. One update to a ship automatically updates the entire system. This is not the case with wiki. There are however, benefits of wiki, multiple people can edit things.

Yeah, no matter how good Ian is at designing great systems (and he's world class at that)... I'm afraid I can't write as much content as, well, the rest of the internet put together. I'm just one guy!

What you lack in numbers you more than make up for in quality. :wink:
