Make templates to show we are redesigning, needs references, etc. (half done) GET MORE USERS!!! I don't wanna be alonePromotion powers activate
- Main-page renovation. I'm thinking of possibly a collab effort, with users like JoePlay (who did an uber-awesome job with the Jurassic Park Wiki main page) and MontagnaMagica (who did an uber-awesome job with the Coasterpedia and Reptiles Wiki main pages).

- Heck, beef up ALL our articles.
- Make forum subcategories
- Policies and guidelines pages - rename Rules and use as a hub. Also image licensing
- Maybe get another interested user to come and contribute. Make sure they have an understanding of the referencing system, the no copy-paste rule, etc. Justisaurus, ThePalaeontologist?
