People, try to put these in roughly alphebetical order so that when we realize that we have 100 unorganized pastas, the sorting won't take an hour.

We've hit 20 pastas :D
StabbyStab 22:18, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
Yay, milestone! :D Black goes gray 22:23, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
LEVEL UP! lol
ClericofMadness 22:23, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the picture article list Black Goes Gray
Too much pasta to go to sleep at the moment?
StabbyStab 22:37, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
I can't seem to link to pictures at the moment. How do you guys do it? My way isn't working...
StabbyStab 21:32, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
Type in File: and then the first few letters of the filename, and that should make it drop down, yes?
We already have about 44 pastas the last time I checked the list. Do you think 150-200 pastas would be a reasonable goal for the next two weeks? HandsomeChris 17:24, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
I think that's reasonable, yeah. Black goes gray 17:38, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Alright. Also with this I have come to the realization that there is only so much creepypasta out there. At one point we must start publishing OC on the wiki. But that seems a bit long term to me. But I think the goals of this site will eventually be accomplished and we must set some new ones. HandsomeChris 18:23, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
What is OC today may be creepypasta tomorrow! ..but yeah. Let's fulfill this goal before making a new one. Black goes gray 18:31, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
I have a ton of pasta to still unload, and there are hundreds out there floating around. I don't think we'll need OC for too long. I think we should build up the site a little more and promote it on /x/ and other areas of the internets devoted to pasta, then start asking some of the more serious writers, like Josef K., if they feel like having their work added to the wiki.
StabbyStab 20:42, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Good point Stabby. This is unrealted, but typically no one copyrights creepypasta, am I correct? I just want to avoid legal issues. HandsomeChris 20:53, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
I'd say add it and keep it on until somebody gets pissed. If you know the author, add their name. If they want you to take it down, and they can prove that they're the author, take it down. That way, I think we can have the most pasta possible.
We're at 88 total now, with 39 remaining un-listed picture pastas.
StabbyStab 23:47, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Are any of the un-listed pastae titled? HandsomeChris 00:20, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
All of them have names. Look at the filenames for the titles.
StabbyStab 00:36, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, Ill get to it later tonight.
To whoever organized this section into letters: I thank you greatly. HandsomeChris 16:37, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
- You're welcome Antennastoheaven 19:10, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
We need to try to find at least one pasta for each letter. Right now it looks... Empty.
Also, I linked all of the pictures I dumped, but they still need to be categorised. The picture pasta section is about 3 times the size it was this morning.
StabbyStab 18:19, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
If anybody else wants to add their talk page to the list for helping users, go for it. Mine is the only one there at the moment. StabbyStab 18:21, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Will do stabby. HandsomeChris 18:22, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Whoa, you listed them alphabetically? Great! Oh and sorry for disappearing for, well, days. I've been really busy with work lately... Black goes gray 18:20, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
We should create a watermark and add it to all of our picture pastas. It just needs to be as simple as the link "Creepypasta.wikia.com", and our red 4chan logo. It'll make it much easier for us to become well known in the creepypasta community. We can have a community artist to make it and let him put his name on it so that we get free labour and he gets better known as an artist amongst /x/.
Also, looking at this new letter section ordering, it's easy to miss the picture pasta list at the bottom.
I think it makes sense to merge the two lists and create a page for each pasta including the full pasta in either picture or text form, or both if we have them. That way, we can watermark the picture pasta that we have so that it can be put on /x/, and have access to the text forms, which are easier to read.

- The idea with the watermarks is brilliant. Please be scared. Yours sincerly, Antennastoheaven 19:14, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. Just a thought, if we get this going well enough, eventually outpacing our competition coming form other creepypasta wikis, we could move the wiki to our own domain and begin to pay for hosting, while using the popularity that we gained in the community to generate revenue through advertising on a website hosted by us.
That assumes we have a big enough community, which might involve aiming for an even larger audience than few /x/philes.
The only limitation is moving the information from a wikia template to our own site, involving site which I have no experience in. We need to be on the lookout for others with that experience that would work for free or could be repaid in notoriety or barter instead of money.
It's just speculation, but something to keep in mind.
StabbyStab 19:52, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
A cashflow would be nice. All we would have to do is a make a page that's nothing but a href tags to all the articles and a category page. I would miss the [[ and ]]s, lol. The thing about own site would be image hosting costs, yes? If we need extra revenue...I am a writer. I could make a bunch of OC, or use the community's OC (with permission, of course) and try to release a book/ebook to fill the site coffers. ClericofMadness 21:12, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Cleric, have you been published yet? HandsomeChris 21:20, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, thanks! Very helpful. Black goes gray 04:48, October 1, 2010 (UTC)
How come a bunch of the pages here are listed as noexistant? AlixeTiir the herpa-derpa-durr 04:21, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
help, it's not a list anymore... someone messed it up AlixeTiir the herpa-derpa-durr 18:04, August 26, 2011 (UTC)
