    An idea I've had...

    I've been thinking of starting up a wiki for cyclone athletics. Our entry on wikipedia is really probably sufficient for wikipedia, but I've been thinking that I'd love to start a really in-depth "Cylonepedia" that has details about as much minutiae as possible about the present and past of ISU athletics. Think of it as a media guide on steroids.

    What do you all think? Does such a thing sort of already exist? I've already got the resources to host it, I just don't know if it's something that's worthwhile to spend some time on.

    I think if you create it Jeremy should make a CF link to it

    Agreed - Or, work with Jeremy to make it a part of this site rather than a separate site. Love the idea though!

    Re: An idea I've had...

    Another cool site idea....

    A big pic of JTS, with google maps embedded, so we can notate where we sit. I know there are lots of CF'ers that sit in my section, it is just hard to know.

    I think all these are good ideas, a wikipedia for Cyclone Sports would rock.

    The ones with the bugged out eyes and wearing wrist braces for carpal tunnel syndrome are the CF'ers...

    Ha, and I was just thinking that we almost need a wikipedia entry to trace the evolution of the legend Roger Sprague.

    Roger Sprague would certainly benefit by being included in the cyclonepedia

    Re: An idea I've had...

    I actually had a CyWiki started about 10-12 months ago but stopped because I didn't know if people would like the idea or not. I can resurect it from my backups and post a link to it this weekend if people would be interested. It was somewhat seperate from the site so it could be easy to use but it was also integrated enough to keep the CF look.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    What ever happened the the map showing where all of the CFers are from? It was interesting to see all of the places around the US (and world) were located.
