I have started putting up a Wiki site for everything related to Home (not just the vague sections of Wikipedia). Why? Because Home really needs one!
I saw a need within the community to have a "one-stop" shop for getting information and images about clothing, furniture, game spaces, and the like. I've done a ton of work over the past week getting every single purchaseable clothing and furniture item up with text online, and am working on getting images for each one, which I should hopefully have done before the end of the week (I hope, fingers crossed). From there I'll go on to a lot of things I want to see (which I'll explain below in Future Improvements).
Here are some examples you can look at for now
Some Examples of Articles with Images Already:
At the Moderators' request, all discussion related to Homepedia should be confined to this thread. I have locked down the Discussion sections of Homepedia and they're not intended for use, and as an act of good faith if I see discussions pop up on the site for any pages that aren't protected or for whatever reason didn't get the cascading protection applied, they will be deleted on-site. This is a very small concession to make and it's one I'm confident that we can adhere to, as the mods need to be able to screen discussions for appropriateness. Therefore, please keep all discussions confined to this thread. Also continue to check the Future Improvements section of this post before asking for particular enhancements as they may already be covered.
I Need Your Help!
I am looking for talented individuals to help me maintain the site. Yes, that means you! I'm looking for help in maintaining the Wiki content. This has been long overdue for Home as I hope you will agree, let me know if you want to be a part of documenting a huge part of social networking history. I need help both in writing, keeping things up to date, auditing the content of the site, and of course high quality images (and I'm particularly in need of pics of female avy clothes since I don't have a female avy ).

All that's missing is to get it Stickied.
Yeah I know, but you can always float the thread for yourself (I call it pseudo-stickying) and also bookmark the site.

I'm sure that will happen All on it's own...ya won't need my help.
Well, we'll see what happens!
(Although I gotta say I'm a little bummed that this thread's been up for over an hour now with only a few replies, when I've tried to put together something that can benefit the community (and you don't want to know WHAT I've had to go through getting this thing up, this is my first Wiki site, I just decided that it needed to be done so I took all the steps on my own without help to get it done)... when I see tons of Captain Obvious "Home is not a game" posts all day and whining threads that get tons of Kudos and support.... maybe I just hit it at a bad hour, one can hope)
