Year One[edit]

I've been working on making pages for individual freebies, because people can search for words in the descriptions of the individual items. we're going to end up with many, many pages... but I think it's worth the work. --Robkelk (talk) 03:30, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Excellent idea Rob. Will make your life so much easier and the site will look very professional with the new design.--Dollygirl (talk) 17:00, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
"Very professional" is what I'm aiming at, yes. If we look like a proper index, we have some minor advantages when it comes to copyright law, as a research site. --Robkelk (talk) 00:00, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
G3M and G3F now have their wardrobe completely listed this way, as do a few other figures who only have one or two freebies. V4's wardrobe is close to having a complete set of "catalog pages" - then I'll work on M4 and A3's wardrobe. (G3F, G3M, V4, and M4 appear to be the most popular figures at the moment, and everybody knows that I♥A3.) This will take a while; there's over 400 pages to go just for these three figures, and over 1,000 more pages for the free wardrobe for everybody else. Once wardrobe's done, then I'll look at poses, morphs, and hair. And then there's props, lights, and cameras... This will probably take months or years to complete. --Robkelk (talk) 15:49, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
V4's wardrobe is done. I count 105 pages to make for M4's wardrobe, and 245 pages to make for A3's wardrobe, as of this posting. (I only count 24 pages to make for Lolo Hai's wardrobe... maybe I'll do that first.) --Robkelk (talk) 21:53, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
People keep finding wardrobe for G3F, G3M, and V4... and one of those people is me. <g> (Keep the listings coming, please!) As of this posting, each listed outfit for those figures has its own page, and I count 80 pages to make for M4's wardrobe, 230 pages to make for A3's wardrobe, and 36 pages to make for Lolo Hai's wardrobe. Maybe I should work on the pages for the less-popular figures. --Robkelk (talk) 00:52, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
M4's wardrobe is done... except for what's listed only on the Star Trek wardrobe page. --Robkelk (talk) 17:01, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
The Star Trek and Star Wars wardrobe items are now also listed on the appropriate figures' pages ... which means the M4 and V4 wardrobe pages are not done after all. --Robkelk (talk) 13:26, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Status report on this project:

  • Each of the listed wardrobe items for M4, V4, G3F, G3M, and ChibiBel have their own pages. As I post this, there are only 82 pages left to make for A3's wardrobe (and I'll be going back to that list after I take a short break).
  • Next on my list are the wardrobe items for Dawn, Dusk, G2F, G2M, Kids 4, H3, TY2, and Chibi Figure "Lolo Hai", in no particular order.
  • As much as some of us love the other figures, they aren't used as often as most of the ones I've already listed here. (TY2 is only on my list because I've already made pages for most of her wardrobe while cleaning up her index pages. Lolo Hai is on the list because so many of her freebies have hairdos which aren't listed on the wiki yet. H3 is on the list because he's A3's male counterpart, and I'm already working on A3's wardrobe.) If somebody else just can't wait for individual pages for wardrobe for Roxie or Apollo Maximus or Cookie or Matt or Posette or any of the other figures - or for any figure's morphs, shaders, props, or hairdos - feel free to roll up your sleeves and dive in! Don't think that you need to wait for me to get to your favourite figure.

Even I can get tired of making pages for yet another set of earrings for A3... so I just made pages for Ben's entire wardrobe. We have no images for any of these yet... --Robkelk (talk) 01:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Every freebie on A3's wardrobe list now has an individual page. This means that the wardrobe pages for Aiko 3, Ben, ChibiBel, G2 Jessi, Genesis 2 Male, Genesis 3 Female, Genesis 3 Male, Krystal Starfox, Laura, Luke, Michael 4, Millennium Baby, Millennium Boys, Slon, Toon Boy Sam, Toon Girl Sadie, and V4 are done. As I mentioned on April 14, "Next on my list are the wardrobe items for Dawn, Dusk, G2F, G2M, Kids 4, H3, TY2, and Chibi Figure "Lolo Hai", in no particular order." As of this posting, Dawn only has 8 pages to go, Kids 4 has 14 pages to go, Dusk has 15, TY2 has 16, Hiro 3 has 18, Lolo Hai has 45, and Genesis 2 Female has 82 ... but Genesis 2 Male only has one page left to go. Guess which figure's wardrobe list gets done next... <g> --Robkelk (talk) 18:03, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

If you guessed G2M, you were right! His wardrobe list is done; next up is Dawn. Later. --Robkelk (talk) 21:26, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Dawn's wardrobe is done. --Robkelk (talk) 13:33, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

The wardrobe for Kids 4 is done! On the other hand, I found some helmets for Victoria 4 and haven't made pages for those yet, so V4 isn't done any more. (I've also made a noticeable dent in the G2F wardrobe list.) ----Robkelk (talk) 15:25, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Noticed that Mavka didn't have a page for her base download (the way Star! and ChibiBel do), so I made one... and gave all of her free wardrobe individual pages while I was at it. --Robkelk (talk) 14:42, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Mavka's done. Not just her wardrobe - every freebie. So, if you're looking for pages to show off what at least I want the wiki to look like eventually, you can point at Mavka or ChibiBel. --Robkelk (talk) 21:50, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

TY2's wardrobe is done. --Robkelk (talk) 16:37, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

And now there's a table at the top of this page, showing what I know has been finished. Updates will be made there. --Robkelk (talk) 17:17, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
Oh, yes - the tables at the top of the page don't currently list items that don't have specific figure parents ... such as most scenes and vehicles. Even when that entire list is completed, there will still be plenty of work to do. --Robkelk (talk) 21:23, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Still plugging away at it... --Robkelk (talk) 23:45, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

If I hadn't put the really big lists at the top and marked them as high-priority, I'd be ignoring them and working on the smaller lists... Even so, I'm still working on smaller lists while taking breaks from the big lists. (Matt's done!) --Robkelk (talk) 02:08, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

I keep finding morphs for V4 that aren't on the list! This is a good thing - I get to add them to the list. --Robkelk (talk) 00:32, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Just added columns for Utilities and Props - this gives me a more accurate picture of what needs to be done. --Robkelk (talk) 16:47, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Year Two[edit]

Now we're moving into the second year of this project. I think the smartest thing I did last year was to make pages for all the G8F and G8M freebies right away, and keep on top of those freebies - that's kept the freebies for at least those two popular figures from accumulating in the "to do" list. And there's over a hundred of the less-well-supported figures that are completely done, not just Mavka and ChibiBel. On the flip side, I still haven't finished the pages for either V4 or A3; I had hoped to have at least one of them done by now. That just shows how big those lists are... --Robkelk (talk) 02:27, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Made a noticeable dent in the list of morphs for A3 - "only" 68 more to go. --Robkelk (talk) 03:12, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
A3's morphs are done! --Robkelk (talk) 23:30, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Unless I've counted incorrectly, A3's list of outstanding pages to make (49 Hairdos + 17 Props) is shorter than V4's (95 Hairdos + 225 Poses) as of this posting. Many of those hairdos are paid resources with free refits; those might be on both lists (and other lists throughout the wiki). --Robkelk (talk) 18:05, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Moved the list of work to do to the content page for this discussion page. Left the discussion here. Oh, and SP3's done. --Robkelk (talk) 17:56, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Make that 157 poses for V4, as of this posting. That's almost one-third of them done! --Robkelk (talk) 01:38, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

As of this posting, there's 80 poses for V4 left - 48 of which are by jlk. Once those 48 are done, the pace will slow slightly, since I won't be doing them from a three-quarters-complete template any more. --Robkelk (talk) 01:14, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

V4 poses are done! --Robkelk (talk) 23:50, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

A3 props are done! Now it's time for hairdo pages; 48 for A3 and 94 for V4, if I counted correctly. Or maybe I'll work on something else for a while - I have to find most of those hairdos because most of the remaining A3 and V4 listings are for hair refits. --Robkelk (talk) 01:53, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
