I've been dancing in anticipation about this privately for awhile now and it's mostly finally ready for you guys to play with so I'm unleashing some of it for you now...
See that locked and floated thread up there about Robot Chicken's first season? That, my delightful little connoisseurs of hawt stop-action actions, is part 1 of our board's new wiki.
If anyone has noticed, in the links at the very top of every page, there's a link for shows. If you go there, you can hit up the Robot Chicken specific wiki area but...well...it needs more info and more organization. For example, the links aren't in an easy-to-find sort of way. There's plenty in there but they aren't exactly listed either by season or episode. It can be like hunting for an GI Joe head in a toybox full of Barbie heads some days. It needed a little more organization but doing that on the WS end was going to be way the hades too labor-intensive. That 'Family Guy' pinball machine ain't gonna play itself, dang it! But in seriousness, the link organizing takes mondo time; time that needs to be spread out for a hundred other projects of equal or greater value than catering to one show specifically that has over 1,000 individual clips already loaded with a butt-ton and a half more in the wings somewhere.
This is changing.
As can be seen from that thread, organization is occuring. Each season and each Star Wars Special will be getting their own wiki thread here on the boards proper. Their bare bones will of course be the organizing, shorty summarizing, and direct link whenever possible, of each and every RC clip that is currently loaded and ready to rock legally via [as] . Now people will be able to hopefully find that one particular clip they want and / or find out what season / episode something was on more quickly and efficiently than before. Please note that not all the clips have been officially linked in there yet - I'm still going through and checking things and doing all that fun stuff but in the end, whatever can be linked in there will be linked in there. You'll now be able to irritate your friends with insta-links of weirdness!
But more importantly, these board-side wikis will have something even more important that the WS-side ones kinda are missing. You. Updating the WS-side one is almost as time-consuming as gathering up and organizing the link datas because every change had to go through an Admin and / or code monkey directly at WS. And they have a ton of things they're doing at any given time so not everything that gets submitted gets dealt with quickly. The board-side wiki pages are going to be far quicker to change as people submit their infos because now they won't have to wait for an Admin to necessarily press the 'Pass' button, just for one of your lowly RC HELPeR creatures to log on and get to work.
The various wiki threads themselves will remain locked to keep the info straight-forward within it but we HELPeRs have the ability to edit in there with no time limit so any time there's trivia to input for a particular episode, channel flip, toy used, whatever, it should be able to be placed in there without problems. If it's not something that is super obvious, please list what episode and channel flip you are referring to when submitting trivia funs for quick and efficient placement. Things posted are still subject to the TOS, naturally, and will be seen by the Admins and Mods but I'm confident that ya'll already know that.
So that's where this thread comes in. This is the open thread for the Season One Wiki Stuffs. Post all your questions, comments, trivia, concerns, problems regarding Season One stuff in this thread to be answered and / or included in the actual Wiki thingie itself. Season One only, please. As there will be open threads for Seasons 2,3,4 and the Star Wars Specials [1 and 2 can both be contained in a single discussion thread please due to trivia overlap ], others can feel free to grab OP rights for the other threads and start doing the same info gatherings for those.
And above all, let's have some fraking fun with this. This is the start of our very own Encyclopedia Chickanica after all.

This is an event that requires nothing other than a........PARTY!!!
It is quite remarkable.
What can I really say about Season 1 though?
Hmmmmm, it was the start of what would soon become the greatest invention EVER!
If not for Season 1, where would most of us even be? Dead in gutters? Prostitutes? President Of The USA? Winner of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
It's uncertain, but without Robot Chicken I feel our lives would have turned out so much more different than their current form.
Thank you season 1 for bringing Robot Chicken to our existence. No matter how amazing or bad our lives could have been without you, I wouldn't change a thing.
I'd rather experience stop motion brilliance any day of the week over having complete dominance over America.

Ok, let's jump start peoples' contributions with something fairly simple like the Stoopid Monkey at the end of every episode. Season One only in this thread.
