WoR Chapter Summary Pages[edit]

Hey Satsuoni, thank you for helping out with the WoR summary pages however just copy-pasting the content from the main page is not really ideal. These summary pages were intended to be a more long-term project and so I've neglected to actually write up the guidelines for how I want them. The main summary page will end up having brief-er, more cursory summaries whereas the individual pages will go into much more depth and discussion. It is okay for these pages to exist as redlinks for now, we don't need to just be repeating the content on the main page. If you have more questions about this project please ask.--WeiryWriter (talk) 19:46, 14 July 2015 (MDT)

I see. Could somebody provide me with an example of a more in-depth chapter summary? Having at least one fully formatted chapter to use as a template would probably help a lot of people (probably not me, since I lack the ability to summarize). And what do you mean by "discussion"? Chapter summaries to not seem to be a good place for opinion-based analysis, which, at least to my understanding, a discussion is. --Satsuoni (talk) 19:59, 14 July 2015 (MDT)
This was my initial "proposal" that I took to the other admins. There is still some expansion I would like to do, notably in the Setting section, but it's roughly indicative of my goals. By discussion I mean including stuff like foreshadowing, easter eggs, the significance of the chapter headers, things like that.--WeiryWriter (talk) 21:10, 14 July 2015 (MDT)
After looking at that, I can confirm that it is way, way beyond my capabilities, so I'll leave the links alone. The sudden reappearance of over a hundred redlinks has just startled me after I've spent some time trying to reduce their number. --Satsuoni (talk) 21:43, 14 July 2015 (MDT)
