One of the things I'd like to do is remove the redundancy between GDNet's books section
and the wiki's books section.
GDNet's is larger and has a lot more in the way of reviews, so it makes sense to move the content from the wiki into GDNet. Some of the pages were little more than the name of the book anyway, so I've already replaced those pages with direct links to the listings on GDNet (after checking with Spodi).
I'd like to try and preserve the reviews where possible - including information about the author of the review, because that's possibly a big factor when considering how much weight to give the review. The most sensible way to set up this attribute is to use the GDNet user account, as that's how all the existing reviews are attributed. The alternative would be posting the reviews using the 'anonymous poster' account, and then adding some kind of signature, but that's not as neat.
So, I'm wondering whether people who've written book reviews on the wiki could create GDNet accounts if necessary, and then let me know what their account names are? Then I'll port the reviews over and attribute them to those accounts.
Specific wikifolk that I'm looking to find account info for:
* Sion (Sion_ ?)
* Classic Gamer
I realise that not everybody's still active, and some people may not even want their reviews being migrated, but anyone who does
, if you'd oblige me with an account name I'd greatly appreciate it.
