Hey guys! I am still alive, though this illness just doesn't seem to want to let go -- I am still having coughing fits every now and again. There is some nasty stuff going around, so please take your vitamin C and stay healthy!
As you might have noticed, I am now an admin for the wiki! After attempting to contact the original wiki creator with no luck, I put in my request to adopt the wiki at Community Central. So now I can do all of the maintenance stuff that was restricted before to get this place in shape. You might have seen some of the recent changes, but in case you were wondering, here's a few of the projects I have been working on:
- Removed Comments: I've removed the ability to add comments to articles. This seemed redundant, since each article has its own talk page (which is exactly the same thing). We also have a forum, for conversations that span multiple subjects.
- Deleted Pages: In my efforts to clean up the wiki, I've deleted some pages which served no purpose. We had some alphabet pages (A, B, C, etc) which someone made to simulate categories, but since we do have categories they were redundant.
- Marked Stubs: I've marked a lot of pages as Category:Article_stubs because they need additional information. Please feel free to help flesh them out!
- Rearranged Front Page: Some things on the front page have moved around as I play with the layout. I've learned a lot of great tips via the Community Central and plan on utilizing them to do things like increase Google search rankings for our wiki and make the front page more welcoming and helpful to new editors. Keep your eyes on it and feel free to make suggestions!
Something else I've noticed is that we've had a lot of edits from anonymous passers-through. This is great, because the more help editing the better. However, I highly recommend signing in to Wikia if you plan on editing an article. Not only does it give you credit for your edit, but it also helps us build our little community here!
Anyway, thanks everyone for all of your help. I look forward to seeing this wiki grow and become a great resource for anyone using this game.
