Protect Net Neutrality

Today, December 14, 2017, {{Wiki|Federal Communications Committee|the Federal Communications Committee}}, under the advisement of former Verizon Lawyer, Ajit Pai, chose to repeal the {{Wiki|Barack Obama|then-President Barack Obama}} approved decision to protect {{Wiki|Net Neutrality}} by, "reclassifying broadband as a common carrier under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 and Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996" ({{Wiki|Net Neutrality in the United States|source}}), which that kept the internet under government regulation (IIRC). The repeal was made in favor of catering to Corporate Lobbyists, who in turn, work in favor of the Major Internet Service Providers (ISPs), ''like'', but certainly not limited to, '''Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T.'''

The last step required is to get their repeal approved by Congress and made law is to go through Appeals Court. Already folk are coming out of the woodwork to sue the FCC for their decision.

Wikia as a website, relies on the community of people that relies on the internet to even contribute to their website. Without Net Neutrality, major ISPs can make simple recreational tasks like editing articles a near-impossibility, esp. for those on a seriously fixed income.

So, here's what you need to do if yo value the neutrality of the internet and all that it provides you, thanks to government regulation:

;CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVES, URGE THEM TO SUPPORT NET GENERALITY AND GO AGAINST PAI AND THE FCC's decision:
*[https://whoismyrepresentative.com/ visit whoismyrepresentative.com] - To find out who represents you in Congress and urge them to support NN
*[https://resist.bot visit resistbot.io] - Another website that will help you in writing or calling to your representatives
*[https://www.battleforthenet.com Visit Battleforthenet.com] - The major spearhead in the fight for Net Neutrality, and another major resource for protests, and contacting your representatives

;BE PERSISTENT, BUT POLITE, WITH YOUR REPRESENTATIVES, AND MAINTAIN OPEN DIALOG WITH THEM
*On top of urging them to go against making the repeal of Net Neutrality law, you also want to urge them to support this bill, '''the [https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/4585 H.R.4585 - Save Net Neutrality Act of 2017]''', which means to prevent the FCC's decision from becoming a reality. So far, 24 representatives in Congress are in support of it. There can be more, but we as a public play a great deal into how things go down from here on out.

*'''1) Congress can stop the FCC and overrule their vote using the Congressional Review Act'''
*'''2) It only takes a simple majority in the Senate and House , so go bother your representatives.'''
*'''3) 83% of voters support #NetNeutrality regardless of political party We can do this. http://BattleForTheNet.com''' ([http://blundergato.tumblr.com/post/168543463747/do-not-freak-out-if-the-net-neutrality-bill-is source])

About the Prince of Persia Trilogy Redlink Pages

Just a heads up for future editors for red-linked pages like "The Sands of Time Trilogy" and "The Prince of Persia Trilogy".
These pages are meant to be a basic summary of the respective events that occurred in these trilogies. In other words, the articles should be formatted and feature description not unlike the Dragonball Wiki's Saga pages (i.e. Red Ribbon Army Saga or Imperfect Cell Saga).
Wikipedia page information has already been used and re-purposed in the Prince of Persia (series) article, which details the franchise information and history of the series, including the list of games, books and movies available under the Prince of Persia licenses.

Save Net Neutrality - Battle of the Net

So, Tuesday came with the unfortunate announcement that the bill (or what have you) that would allow Internet Service Providers to play the Slow Lane/Fast Lane game with websites in the name of money at the expenses of their users, was passed.
Almost immediately there were many, rightfully arguing against the decision and Wednesday more than a dozen or so petitions popped up in my haunts outside the Wikia and visiting the Wikia, even the staff is arguing against it (thank god). At this point, most of you have probably thrown in your lot with voting/fighting against it, I'm the same. No one, in my opinion, can afford an implement like this and sooner or later, it's going to be used to censor and block information, and violate rights of the internet users.
If you can, check out the Wikia links, do what you can to keep this from going widespread.
Pardon the dramatics, but this is super important

Reorganizing the Wiki

Hello, this is the administrator of the Prince of Persia Wiki speaking. Since as early as 2013, I've been trying to get this Wiki, that was established by Jaro7788 as far back as 2005 or earlier, up and running on its feet. Long story short, the place was a mess and full of fanon concerning Kaileena's relationship or things the Prince had actually done in either game trilogy.
I've been working slowly solo for good time, however, I've recently gained a lot of help from my co-admin, JayAaerow, who's been aiding in reorganizing and redecorating the Wiki as a whole. However, with so much left overs from the older establishment, it's going to take a little more than just two people with bureaucrat rights to get the place straight.

Series-specific Templates
Each Prince of Persia series has its own personalized character and navigation template. This is simply to create a visual difference between the three trilogies spawned from the franchise.
It goes without saying, that if you're editing an article pertaining to the Sands of Time video game canon use the following template:

Character Box (SOT Trilogy) If you're editing a character page for the 2008 Prince of Persia game, use the following template:
Character Box (2008_game) If you're editing a character page for the original Prince of Persia games, use the following template:
Character Box (Original_Trilogy) If you're editing a character page for the Sands of Time film, use the following template:
Character Box (Film) and Character Box Enemies (Film) If you're editing a enemy page for any of the Prince of Persia games, use the follow template: Character Box Enemies
For navigation templates for specific pages (Character, Series, Weapons, Enemies, Gameplay, Actors, Powers, etc.), see the category:
Category:Navigation Templates
Objects and Weapons in Prince of Persia are extremely different from one another. Therefore, weapons that have been organized as "Objects", using the Template:Infobox_Object template, need to be reorganized with the template, Infobox_Weapons, which contains expanded details on weaponry stats and damage.

Deleting Categories
The Prince of Persia Wiki is presently bogged down with a lot of useless categories, all of which have been listed in the the Category:Candidates for deletion. On top of that, given that Categories cannot be renamed and merely redirect to the new name, deleting Categories is imperative.

Categories needing to be renamed
Sand Enemies = Sand Creatures (restricted to enemies from The Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and The Two Thrones). Enemies from the Forgotten Sands will be categorized under the Category "Sand Army Enemies" or "Haoma Enemies"
Articles needing Citation
From this point onward, no article can be published without proper citation and canonical content connected to the subject of the article. If you cannot find said information that will verify content of the article, please use the following template: {{Unsourced Material}}. For articles that require clean up use the {{Cleanup}} template.
When you create references use the following template and page break format: ==References==
{{Scroll Box|
{{Reflist}}
}}
References will appear at the bottom of the page. Unsure how to reference? Check out Help:References.

Article Tabs
With regard to Character Articles, major character articles are sectioned up into sub pages using the {{Tab}} template. This template will allow article viewers to access easily all available subpages for each character article they are given to.
With particular regard to abilities sub pages, the articles themselves should not be written or formatted in a manner similar to the DC and Marvel Wikias. Instead the ability subpages should be written and formatted not unlike the Gameplay or Characteristics sub pages. so long as there is a "cleanup" template on the said sub pages and abilities and powers are still listed in bullet point format, the page will need to be reformated.

Canon resources
Canonized information on Prince of Persia is and has always been rather thin as far as the internet is concerned. Enemy names, locations and characters has either been misspelled or incorrect as a result. However, the biggest source of canon information besides the games themselves are the game's walkthrough guides by Bradley Games and Prima. If you own or happen to know where an accessible (and legal) copies of:

Prince of Persia: Prima Official Game Guide (Prima Official Game Guides)
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (Prima Official Game Guide)
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Official Strategy Guide (Signature Series)
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands: Prima Official Strategy Guide
And Prince of Persia: Warrior Within Official Strategy Guide (Signature Series)
Please use whatever canonical information you have at the ready to improve articles where improvement is needed. The more incorrect information is removed from the Wiki, the better chances it can be a reliable source for PoP fans and causal browsers.

Walkthroughs
Prince of Persia has amassed a goodly amount of walkthrough created by users and official sources over the last ten plus years since 2003. The games debuted back when things like YouTube.com and Video Walkthroughs weren't either a): extremely popular or a means of revenue or b): didn't exist. However, the Prince of Persia Wiki would like to formally request that users who are adept at creating walkthroughs for Gaming Wikia help us create a solid walkthrough for every iteration of Prince of Persia. The task, much like the organization of the Wiki itself is daunting, and I wouldn't begrudge you for wanting to avoid it, however, as this is a gaming wiki aiming to provide concrete information on a video game series that relies heavily on strategy or combat, we'd like to at least try to create solid walkthroughs exclusive to the Wiki. Or, if you've created a Written and Visual Walkthrough before, are not against your sharing it with the Wiki, so long as it is your walkthrough or you've been given permission to do so.
