Additions:
As I will be discussing four distinct and yet at times related fashion styles, I will cover one type each week, aiming for at least 500 words per page to start. For the first week, I will cover the Mori aesthetic. First, I will provide an overview of the style and discuss what defines "Mori" and what does not. Next, I will provide examples of the style through photos. Then, I will compile a list of links to outside resources, such as relevant blogs and online stores. The second week I will add a page discussing Steampunk, the third week I will add a page discussing Gothic Victorian, the fourth week will be Lolita, and each of these pages will cover the same types of information as the first week. The fifth week of this project will be spent adding pages to all topics and refining and expanding on the existing information, and preparing my final report. I would prefer to organize my project this way because it feels more organized than creating all pages at once. I expect that setting up my project this way will help to keep my wiki organized, which will be visually appealing, help to maintain my focus on the project, and be more inviting to those who may want to contribute to the wiki.

Additions:
I expect to organize my wiki by category. The home page will give an overall description of the wiki, and provide a link to each starting page, such as Mori, Steampunk, Gothic Victorian, and Lolita. Each starting page will lead to the other pages within those categories. This means, for example, that the Steampunk page will link to a Steampunk Accessories page, Steampunk Footwear page, Steampunk Dresses, etc, just as the Lolita starting page will link to those same topics within the Lolita category, and so on. I also intend to organize each page with headings, titles, and lists. I will also be organizing the links on my wiki. Each category (Steampunk, Lolita, Gothic Victorian, Mori) will have internal links for specific pages within that category (Accessories, Footwear, Jackets, etc), and each category will also have a separate page organizing all external links used by that category (Steampunk Links, Lolita Links, Gothic Victorian Links, Mori Links). These external links pages will contain only headings and lists organizing all the links within each category.

Additions:
I intend to create and develop wiki pages a minimum of three times per week, and to start each page with a minimum of 500 words, with the possibility of coming back later to refine and add to that information. By sticking to this plan, I expect that my wiki will grow to a minimum of fifteen pages, though I hope to achieve more. This is not including whether others decide to add pages.

Edited on 2014-03-18 14:19:12 by AmberGordon
Additions:
While searching the internet, I have only found a - [[http://steampunk.wikia.com/wiki/Steampunk_Wiki | Steampunk wiki]] covering all things Steampunk, though it covers fashion it does not have a focus on the fashion aspect. I believe my wiki could be more detailed regarding Steampunk fashion. I have not yet found a wiki for Gothic Victorian, Lolita, or Mori fashion or lifestyles, or a wiki covering multiple forms of alternative fashion. I will be looking over the Links section of the Steampunk wiki I have found and borrow any links I feel would be relevant to my wiki. I will also link back to the Steampunk wiki. However, I will do a few things differently than the Steampunk wiki, for example I will not be focusing on modern media, such as television shows, games, comics, or any other such things, as my wiki will focus solely on fashion.

Additions:
I will create and develop an Alternative Fashion wiki, providing information on the Steampunk, Mori, Gothic Victorian, and Lolita aesthetics. I believe a wiki, rather than a blog, would help to do this because it will enable me to compile and present information in the forms of text, images, and links, as well as collaborate with others, and it will be used as a resource for anybody who is interested in learning more about these fashion styles.

These links pages will contain only headings and lists organizing all the links within each category.
With this project, I intend to achieve a compilation of at least basic information on these subjects, providing information for others or myself to expand upon or use. Since I have only found a Steampunk wiki and not yet found wikis for Mori, Gothic Victorian, or Lolita fashion, I hope to grow my wiki, even beyond this project, to provide that information about these, and potentially other, alternative fashion styles for others who are interested.
I envision my project report being a blog post about my wiki project, as this will help to keep my wiki focused on the information provided rather than class assignments. This project report will cover what I have accomplished and what I have learned, either via input from others who have contributed on the wiki or my learning about wiki use through my own wiki experimentation and research habits. In this project report I will provide one to three images from each aesthetic as examples to show the differences between the fashion styles and to help provide context for the information given. I will explain what I originally set out to accomplish with this project and I will discuss any changes I may have made to the project along the way, and why those changes may have taken place.

Additions:
With my Alternative Fashion wiki, I intend to provide information about alternative fashion, specifically the Steampunk, Lolita, Gothic Victorian, and Mori aesthetics. In creating this wiki, I would like to achieve having at least a basic collection of information about these aspects of alternative fashion. I would like to find out whether others will share in growing the wiki and, if so, I would like to know the kind of information others would add and hopefully expand my current knowledge on the subject.
As I will be discussing four distinct and yet at times related fashion styles, I will cover one type each week. For the first week, I will cover the Mori aesthetic.

I intend to create and develop wiki pages a minimum of five times per week. By sticking to this plan, I expect that my wiki will grow to a minimum twenty-five pages, though I hope to achieve more. This is not including whether others decide to add pages.

I will create and develop an Alternative Fashion wiki, providing information on the Steampunk, Mori, Gothic Victorian, and Lolita aesthetics. I believe a wiki would help to do this because it will enable me to compile and present information in the forms of text, images, and links, as well as collaborate with others.
Deletions:
(Write this description last, after you've written the rest of the proposal.) The exec description is an overall description of the project: In two well-formed sentences (no more, and no less): What are you going to do, why, and how does the writing space you're going to use (blog or wiki) help you do it?

====Title of Project====
Alternative Fashion Wiki
====Email Address and URL====
====Executive Description====
====Narrative====
I expect to organize my wiki by topic. The home page will provide a link to each starting page, such as Mori, Steampunk, Gothic Victorian, and Lolita. Each starting page will lead to the other pages within those categories. This means, for example, that the Steampunk page will link to a Steampunk Accessories page, the Lolita page will link to Lolita Accessories, and so on. I also intend to organize each page with headings, titles, and bullet points.
I will write about the various fashion styles, including information on tops, jackets, skirts, pants, pajamas, jewelry, hats, and other accessories such as parasols and fans. I will also provide images to help provide more information, as well as links to outside resources where readers can go for more information.
I envision my project report being a blog post about my wiki project, as this will help to keep my wiki focused on the information provided rather than class assignments. This will cover what I have accomplished and what I have learned, either via input from others or my own wiki experimentation. In this blog post I will provide one or two images from each aesthetic as examples to show the differences between the fashion styles and to help provide context for the information given. I will explain what I set out to accomplish and discuss any changes I may have made to the project along the way. I will also talk about what I will have learned through this wiki project.
====Weekly Reports====
I will provide weekly reports on my blog, at http://ermahgerditsamber.wordpress.com
====Contract for Grade====
I intend to create and develop wiki pages a minimum of five times per week. By sticking to this plan, I expect that my wiki will grow to a minimum twenty-five pages, though I hope to achieve more. This is not including whether others decide to add pages.
I am going for 150 points (B) to allow for time limitations and other unforeseeable circumstances that may keep me from my goals for this project. However, provided that nothing gets between me and my wiki, I should hope to have a well-developed and focused wiki that is richly linked and well-organized beyond the 150 point mark.
Deletions:
Use the following headings in your proposal. Again: This is like writing a grant. Use the following headings and follow the requests or expect your proposal returned unread.
====Alternative Fashion Wiki====
Executive description
Narrative
I expect to organize my wiki by topic. The home page will provide a link to each starting page, such as Mori, Steampunk, Gothic Victorian, and Lolita. Each starting page will lead to the other pages within those categories. This means, for example, that the Steampunk page will link to a Steampunk Accessories page, the Lolita page will link to Lolita Accessories, and so on.
I will write about the various fashion styles, including information on tops, jackets, skirts, pants, pajamas, jewelry, hats, and other accessories such as parasols. I will also provide images to help provide more information, as well as links to outside resources where readers can go for more information.
In the last paragraph of this section, mention how you envision your project report: Will it be a wiki essay or something on your blog? What will you deal with in this report - as specifically as you can imagine it now. You can change your mind on this one, but start thinking about it now. You'll be making a brief in-class presentation along with your report.
Grad Students: Readings Your project report (at the end of the project) should include background reading or theory based on readings for the course and your own reading. So, include a section on outside reading you'll be doing for your project. The reading can be web-based or print; and can be in great part looking at other blogs and / or wikis. A preliminary bibliography is best, but you can also list or talk about the kinds of readings / sites you're thinking of looking at and how you see them tying in with what you're doing in the project. You might start with readings and sites on the BlogReadingsForCourse, WikiReadingsForCourse, or HypertextReadingsForCourse, as appropriate.
Weekly Reports
Give the address where you will post your weekly reports: blog URL or wiki URL.
Contract for Grade
The project counts for 50% of your final grade. In this section of your proposal, detail the extent of your project in measurable terms: numbers. Think in terms of numbers of blog entries or wiki nodes, length, and frequency of posting.
For instance, if you plan on keeping a blog, how often will you post? How long do you expect those posts to be? If you're working with others on a collective blog, how will you distribute the tasks? What will each person contribute? Who will be responsible for what?
Or if you're building a wiki, about how many nodes do you expect it to grow to? How often will you add material?
Use good estimates because you'll be held to them.
Set your contract. Here are some guidelines.
100 pts (about a C) for keeping a general, non-topic specific blog three or four times a week, with entires of about 200 - 500 words/day. For a wiki, sort of a freeform, general notebook or collaboration of the same frequency and length.
150 pts (B) for a focused blog, including searching for subjects to blog on (online or off), with links to online material when appropriate, 3 - 4 times a week, about 500 words or so a day. For a wiki, focused, well-linked.
250 pts (A) for a focused, extensive blog. Not just blogging 3 - 4 times a week, but some entries becoming 500 - 750 - 1000 word essays... For a wiki, focused, well-linked, but more developed, more richly linked, more organized than the 150 points.
Contracts are set for the number of points: 100 / 150 / 250.
You can earn more points than you contract for if you end up going beyond what you originally planned on. On the other hand, if you fall short on the contract, you may receive fewer points. (I'm hoping for the former.)
The points accumulate by week. A late or missing means no points for that week. Your final write-up adds up to 50 points to the mix.
