I suggest that blog-pages would be most useful if they contain links and short descriptions of important entries. Here, an 'important' entry is probably one that has something to say, and itsn't just a short comment or a link to something else. Do you agree? VictorGijsbers 22:35, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

I admit, I haven't given blog-pages all that much thought to date. Certainly this appears to be an improvement to what was there before. Hm. I think, if a blog's entries are tagged in any way by its author, we ought to have a list of links to those tags (if they are IF-related) at the bottom of the article. Also, I can't help but think that summarizing blogs will require quite a bit of work. And what should we call blogs that don't really have their own names? -- David Welbourn 23:05, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it is quite a bit of work, but if we have some clear examples we might get the blog authors to help us themselves. Who knows? At least we can try. Also, ideally, we would have a page 'conversation' which links to all the blog posts about conversations, and so on. It doesn't have to be finished tomorrow. ;) What do you mean by blogs that don't have their own names? VictorGijsbers 23:07, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
There is a conversation page, actually. Not a great one, but it's there. Re: blogs without names: well, for example, I have a blog at LiveJournal that I haven't used in years. My userid there is "dswxyz". Assuming it was worth documenting (it isn't), would we call it "David Welbourn's blog" or "dswxyz at LiveJournal" or "LiveJournal:dswxyz" or what? -- David Welbourn 23:14, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Oh, we may also need dates, if not of the blog entries themselves, but a range of from when to when the blog entries have been summarized. Editors will need to know where to continue from in a living blog. -- David Welbourn 23:59, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Good point. I'll add it immediately. VictorGijsbers 08:20, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

All right--this stuff is now finished. I do have to go to the individual pages, like those of the games, and ensure that they too link to the reviews. VictorGijsbers 09:35, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
