Beaver and Steve (short for The Unfeasible Adventures of Beaver and Steve) is a popular webcomic by James Turner. The comic, which debuted on September 10, 2004 and has continued since on a semi-weekly basis, chronicles the bizarre and humorous escapades of Steve, a green reptilian creature, and the aptly-named Beaver.
This wiki started off as an experiment, but now serves the basis for the BnS comic transcription search engine, available from the archive page, as well as the side-project of translating the comics to French (and possibly to other languages as well, in the future).
And aside from that, it also functions as any other wiki, containing transcriptions, fun facts, references, connections and various other bits of information many might miss while just browsing the comics the "traditional" way.
Here are a few links to get you started:
- The archive page - a good place to check which comics have been transcribed and which ones haven't.
- Comic Wiki Page Creator - a PHP script to make the transcribing of comics in the established format much easier.
- Comic Translator - another PHP tool to help with translating comics. Anyone with enough time and knowledge of the target language can give it a shot!
- A list of all characters
- Onomatopoeias - a script listing all the documented onomatopoeias in a more reader-friendly format, ordered by "popularity".
- A list of wanted pages - before creating an article for one of these, you might want to check if there are any similar articles out there.
If you're new to wikis, a good place to start would be the MediaWiki User's Guide.
