Warhammer WIKI: Lend a hand?
« on: April 10, 2010, 09:38:06 PM »
This is our current Warhammer Empire WIKI.  It will be a part of the site in full form shortly.  Anything you can do to add to it will be appreciated!

Ok, I'll check it out, and touch base with Obi on how to proceed from here.

Maybe I should change my page to say something nice about myself.
I thought he should act responsibly and just kill himself.

I'm currently trying to figure out how to post images nicely. I'll find myself a wiki guide and link it from here :)

Hey, you're mentioned as a king (admittedly of Spamalot, but king nevertheless)! I don't even have a page there...

90% of us made our own pages.  I made a few starter pages for some people though.  Feel free to get in there and get to work.

Gamespoet:  Oh my god I never even looked at that... I will tell Calvin.  Can we delete any of those?

They're all deleted (they no longer have a page). For some reason they're still listed though. You're a sysops by the way, too, phil ;)

In any case, GP, I'll get back to you once I have figured some stuff out about the wiki ;)

So are you Obi!  Calvin has been playing in there I wager.

He can delete those bots (maybe you and I can too, not sure).

I've started reviewing the pages.  I'm leaving individual person's pages alone, and won't be altering anything on any page unless it sticks out.  I'll start keeping a list of ideas, if I come up with any.

So you want me to put that link on the main page, if I understand you correctly?

I think that would be helpful no? Or a tab on the side menu if that would be possible to add.

Work is proceeding slowly, yet smoothly on reviewing wiki pages.  So far, correcting spelling issues, and made a couple of minor content changes.  There is one page I've found that might need a serious content change, but I'll save this for further review at the end, in case other similar issues are found along the way, and then they can be taken care of all at once. :::cheers:::

Nice work so far! Can you mark that one serious page up on the discussion tab? That would be useful :)

Next time I'm on, I'll look around and see if I can figure out what you're talking about. :icon_wink:

Some parts of this are becoming disturbingly factual. That's not what a wiki is about at all!

Ideally, a wiki should be composed entirely of sarcastic lies.
