Battlestar Wiki now has a Tumblr blog. Yes, we know, why the frak are we doing that for?

Well, it’s a means of sharing BSG/Caprica/Galactica 1980 news, content, and all sorts of media to people on a pre-existing service. Stuff that we really don’t want to cover on the Battlestar Wiki blog, since the blog itself is meant for more “serious” business. It also allows other people on the Tumblr network to share our stuff, because we’re all into that Web 2.0 viral felgercarb.

Also, we’ll likely allow people to post their own BSG related stuff on there, as so long as it keeps in line with our ultimate objective: to cover everything canonical and official in the BSG universes.

If you’re interested in helping out, please e-mail us here.

Our own DrWho42 has created a Battelstar Wiki fan page on Facebook. Check it out here!

So… apparently the Wiki Frakr is barred from being linked on MySpace. Consequently, any attempt to link to it from your MySpace profiles, posts, or bulletins will not work.

We can’t control it, but we can let you guys know about it. So tell Tom and his buddies to go frak themselves. :D

Anyway, onto better matters that aren’t technical…

I was reading Mike Hinman’s SyFy Portal website and came across the fact that they are doing their annual SyFy Genre Awards.

Now they have a “long list” of their nominees for various categories—best actor, best actress, best episode, best whatevah—and Battlestar Wiki has made it on their long list of nominees, under the “Best Genre Website” category, along with at least 20 other sites.

If you want to read that list, go here.

SyFy Portal will be announcing the final list (which consists of five nominees per category) this Wednesday on SyFy Radio. Read more here.

Since we now have an article on Wikipedia, I’ve wondered how many times people actually read the thing.

With a new (beta) tool, we can now find out. Check out the results for December 2007 and January 2008.

Just a quick update: We presently have 101 friends on MySpace (though I’m sure there’s at least 10 times that number) and 49 members in our Facebook group.

Please continue to spread the word, friend us, and even message us!

So friend we all!

We recently opened the MySpace portal. However, the Facebook portal has been very “secret” until a few days ago. To join that group, you can go here. We installed a new animated bot on the English wiki only at this point in time. The [[User:ArchiveBot|Archive Bot]] will auto-archive pages depending on the settings you set forth, however an OS upgrade is required. This is being looked into, until then, the bot will remain in development status.

The project page for our [[BW:EP|External Portals]] project is now online.

Feel free to discuss other social networks that Battlestar Wiki should have a presence on [[Battlestar Wiki talk:External Portals|here]].

So say we all!

Based on the votes from the [[Battlestar Wiki:Think Tank/MySpace Presence|Think Tank proposal on the subject]], I’ve decided to do a soft-launch of our MySpace portal.

The location: http://www.myspace.com/battlestarwiki

Official launch will take place on Friday, June 8th.

To ensure a successful official “hard” launch, we’re encouraging visitors with MySpace accounts to put us in their “Top Friends” lists on their MySpace page.

And for those of you who don’t particularly care for MySpace, Mercifull is working on a Battlestar Wiki group on Facebook which we hope to launch soon.

We hope to expand on other social networks as well, so if you have suggestions as to what those are, please feel free to suggest them as responses to this blog post.

So say we all!
