Updating stuff

Post by Archduke » Thu Jul 27, 2017 10:21 pm

I get that you are all busy people, but a lot of recent stuff hasn't made it on to the wiki, title page, etc. just wanted to politely ask if anyone is planning on updating that anytime soon, or is everyone too busy with other stuff. (I have no power to update this myself, and I'm not asking for it.)

Too bad, you have the power now.

The wiki is updated on a policy of only getting updates when someone cares enough about something or inspired enough by something to roll up their sleeves and do the work themselves. It's not a job that's been assigned to anybody.'

But also there's no real quality standard for the wiki. If you want to get in there and plant some half-assed stub articles, other people tend to roll through and organize and edit and polish stuff when they get bored.

somewhat related: i feel like we should have a link to the wiki and the rulebook in the forum and vice-versa instead of only linking from the hub page

because i'm way too lazy to type anything into the address bar

Vami used to do quite a bit too before his wiki privileges were removed for reasons I forget.

Someone needs to add all the ridiculously new factions to the wiki, as well as update all the new ones. Also, how do you update the Wiki?

Congratulations, you now both have the power to update the wiki. Just log in with your regular forum account and password.

I've had the power for a while, I guess I'll muck in whenever possible...
