Looking at this thread I had the idea to probably do away with this one and open up a more organized approach to creating an Ultimate DC Universe Encyclopedia.
I thought you could have the City and maybe some history about it. This could include major events like the Brainiac invasion of Metropolis. You could have a basic Bio for certain people who inhabit the city like it's heroes, villains, politicians etc. You could have an article that could discuss groups with in the UDCU like the Court of Owls, League of Assassins, and Ashram. Maybe have an article based around religions and denominations. A lot of cool reference material could be put here. Plus we could revitalize and update the all mighty Ultimate DC Universe Timeline.
I would really like to hear everyones opinion on this. This could also be a good tool for new readers and writers to use. Someone may want to read Catman but not realize that the character is a spinoff from Birds of Prey.
That'd be awesome, but I'm not sure who would work on that. Dob's the only one really able to as an admin, and I know life's eating away at him for now. Even if I was an official admin, I couldn't because I don't have the time.
I don't think that this project would be too hard. We can just create a template for everyone to follow and then just fill out the basic information that we all already have. The hardest part would be filling out the information based on the inscribe books and of course Green Lantern will probably be rough.
I just looked through the Continuity Archive threads. I think we could use most of those threads and just give them a little update and they would work just fine. I'm not sure what I have the power to do but I can create a new topic for the Timeline and start filling things in. Let me know what I can help with

Yeah, we definitely need updated Continuity threads. It's on the backburner as certain other projects are taking priority.
Some things I want to include, but it'll take a break in some of my workload before I'll be able to really work on:
- An index of titles in continuity to make it easier for new readers to determine what's what. - Updated synopses of all titles. - A Glossary including all characters ever used in continuity. - An Atlas including all major locations. - A Timeline with major events. Not every story needs to be rigidly defined as to what exact date they happened, but a general guide would help. - Other general information such as major corporations, publicly known figures, and other useful info.
