I've had a thought. In the disclaimer it states that people are expected to contact the owner of ideas. I agree with this, however the wiki doesn't exactly give adequate information for contacting people. There are a few members who aren't active anymore and some who have changed their account or who have different dA and forum usernames.

This is a problem, as people are expected to have to go to a lot of trouble just to use an idea. The end result is either they won't use it or they will use it without contacting the author.

The solution to this is quite simple:
A page in the wiki listing everyone who is credited in the wiki by the name they're credited as, followed by a link to their forum account and their dA account.

For example I am listed as Anime-Junkie where I am credited in the wiki, so on the contacts list I would be shown as:

NameForum AccountDeviantART account
Anime-Junkie http://felarya.forumotion.com/u71 http://excelsior-emeritus.deviantart.com/

I believe this should prevent any discrepancies in idea and character usage. Of course, people who are no longer active like /fish/ and TheQuantumMechanic would be marked as such in the contact info.

This isn't a small job, as far as I know there's no convenient list of everyone who's got something in the wiki. A list will have to be made. Once it's made however, new entires can be added easily.
Doing this will make things easier for everyone, especially newcomers in the future.

The only thing I made that is in the wiki is a proverb. xD Anyways, feel free to add this or just ignore it until I get something bigger in:

Really, I only made a few animals, and I thought the disclaimer made it so you had to contact Karbo for permission to use them.

I'm still a bit in the dark I suppose.

EDIT: Yeah, I forgot to clarify. Animals and plants and stuff are more than fine by me if you wanna use them, but contact me if you wanna use any actual characters I made.

I really have no idea how to use the Tables properly. Whatever idea I submitted for now is fine for you to use, since none of my "private" ideas made it.

Feel free to use my plants and animals. I don't care, really. However, contact me for character; I'm especially paranoid about Ruby being used >__>

Any plants, animals, culture or locations I invent may be used freely. Character are the only thing I would like discussed.

There's no point giving our contact info until we actually know this page will be made, I was just making an example of what it would look like.

Even though that's true, I thought it'd be interesting to do, so people would have a point to know who's who and where to contact them.

Anyway, I'm not undoing it. xD

My few ideas are completely open to use without needing to contact- which isn't much anyways besides some of that titan lore stuff a while back heh. Though character use would be appreciated for notes as to their use.

It's doable, in any case. This is how it would look in wikicode:

May I recommend a fourth column for the author's stance on idea usage? That way if someone doesn't care who uses their stuff for what, like my plants and animal contributions, they'll know that they don't need to hunt us down?

Example:

Doesn't the disclaimer say that it doesn't apply to characters?

Going with Aiko's suggestion. I have no idea how to bb-code tables, this took me like a half hour to figure out.
