Okay, now that [[Vengeance, part 6/Transcript]] is posted, there's a topic I've sorta been dancing around up until now. [[Foot Headquarters (IDW)]]. This seemed only murkily defined earlier in the series, and they made a point of how the Foot had lots of covert temporary facilities and such. But towards the end, especially after City Fall, one commonly-used building very clearly came to stand in for Foot Headquarters, and remained so up into now. The Gauntlet took place there and on its rooftop, and it is ringed by intricately-gardened balconies that have been seen in many of the more casual scenes of either the Shredder or of later Splinter. I'm saying all this because right now I have no idea how to even ''begin'' writing this article, or how to address any of the other Foot venues besides the [[Abandoned theater (IDW)]]. Part of the effort would involve diving through hundreds of pages of back issues examining Foot headquarterish scenes looking for patterns.

Also (and I understand this may become increasingly complicated as the number of transcripts increases), some newer articles (like [[Hamato Children]] or [[Clan Hamato (IDW)]]) probably should be hyperlinked in earlier transcript texts on first clearly applicable topical mention per issue. I know that's really something ''I'm'' in a logistically better position to do, having typed up the transcripts myself, but I also never expected I'd have this much sheer success churning out so many transcripts as I have.

Transcribing is actually proving technically easy for me—it's ''every new unlocked opportunity in unleashes'' that starts to look daunting.)

Just like with articles in general where they can be improved in little ways here and there with wikilinks, corrections, etc. I really hope I haven't made transcript source code too much more intimidating than typical article source code. (Doesn't help that I still haven't rewritten template documentation for [[Template:qline]].)

Really, until recently, there was so little IDW article editing going on at all, other than the usual article stub for new issues or a select few new topics. And now there's suddenly so much productivity, and it's great, but still only us few editors.

Okay, now that Vengeance, part 6/Transcript is posted, there's a topic I've sorta been dancing around up until now. Foot Headquarters (IDW). This seemed only murkily defined earlier in the series, and they made a point of how the Foot had lots of covert temporary facilities and such. But towards the end, especially after City Fall, one commonly-used building very clearly came to stand in for Foot Headquarters, and remained so up into now. The Gauntlet took place there and on its rooftop, and it is ringed by intricately-gardened balconies that have been seen in many of the more casual scenes of either the Shredder or of later Splinter. I'm saying all this because right now I have no idea how to even begin writing this article, or how to address any of the other Foot venues besides the Abandoned theater (IDW). Part of the effort would involve diving through hundreds of pages of back issues examining Foot headquarterish scenes looking for patterns.

Also (and I understand this may become increasingly complicated as the number of transcripts increases), some newer articles (like Hamato Children or Clan Hamato (IDW)) probably should be hyperlinked in earlier transcript texts on first clearly applicable topical mention per issue. I know that's really something I'm in a logistically better position to do, having typed up the transcripts myself, but I also never expected I'd have this much sheer success churning out so many transcripts as I have. (I mean, yeah, I'd had experience at the MNT Gaiden Wiki, but this has been a much bigger project, and part of me thought I'd lose interesting and quit even before completing City Fall. Transcribing is actually proving technically easy for me—it's every new unlocked opportunity in unleashes that starts to look daunting.) So I'm not saying "hey, you, please do something for me," etc. But I guess I'm saying... Maybe, sorta kinda keep a casual eye out? Just like with articles in general where they can be improved in little ways here and there with wikilinks, corrections, etc. I really hope I haven't made transcript source code too much more intimidating than typical article source code. (Doesn't help that I still haven't rewritten template documentation for Template:qline. Sometimes it's just so much easier for me to think in code than it is for me to think in something more convoluted like English.)

Really, until recently, there was so little IDW article editing going on at all, other than the usual article stub for new issues or a select few new topics. And now there's suddenly so much productivity, and it's great, but still only us few editors.
