A Wiki reckon (expanding media added to the wiki)

What if the wiki was... well, more of a wiki?

We could create pages about sprites, with that sprite's default portrait, sprite sheet, palette(s), and skill sets--as well as basic biographical data like date of birth, zodiac sign, Brave Story entry, help text of any sort that originates from that character, Bravery/Faith quotes, etc.
- For palettes, we could create sub-pages that detail that sprite's palette data, and be able to click on one of the colors displayed to see what other sprites also use, say: "Ramza Chapter 1's lightest shade of blue."

- For custom sprites that were "frankensteined" from other sprites, perhaps we could include links to their respective original sources?

- For skill sets, each ability could have its own sub-page? And within that page would be its formula, and that formula could have its own category that links to other abilities/weapons that also use that formula. Also, there could be detailed effect observations of that ability which state how it applies to single targets vs. groups vs. all allies/foes. (I seem to remember a forum article that had Youtube videos of such things but could not readily find it)

("tl;dr" Basically any data that would be useful to a user if he or she were to implement this sprite into their patch would be documented and easily accessible.
Of course there any many many more things that could be put on the wiki, the limit is in the user base. So, how about it?

This idea has potential as long as it doesn't get bogged down. I think the hacking sections should stay the prominent portion of it, however but what you mention could act as asides. There are just so many custom skillsets and the like by this point though it would be difficult to really make sense of it all now, once some of our patches grow a little bit more I think a wikipedia page would be able to help us in organizing info. Call of Power could probably already take the forefront in that and FFT:Parted Ways.
