NEW OFFICIAL WIKI UP AND RUNNING!!!
« on: June 25, 2012, 08:42:14 PM »
Since the old wiki has been dead for almost two years now and nobody did anything about it, I decided to take the initiative and start a new one. This is an attempt to pick up from where the old wiki left off and recover most of its content. Unlike the old one however, this one will use a more reliable host and be open to everyone for editing. So far there are only 10 pages which I've done, but if we have the entire community contribute to this then we can probably do some amazing things.

The only requirement to begin editing is to create a free wikia account, so if you want to help out here's the link to the new wiki!
http://asciisector.wikia.com

If you do decide to help then that's great! Here's an archive of the old wiki and a to-do list to get you started.

Working on a table of ships.

EDIT:
I will admit though, my knowledge of Wiki scripting is lacking...

Same here, and thanks for joining the wiki! Btw, I think all the table of ships should go to the "Quick Ships Reference" page instead of "Ship types." I wanted the Ships Type page to just be a list of links to ships. Sorry I think the heading was a bit misleading.   :heh:   We can use the factions column though.

I'll rename the "Ship Types" page to "Detailed List of Ships" to avoid confusion. Want to work on a chart for the capships in the quick ship references page?

Sure.

EDIT:
Going to have to re-brush up on my ship knowledge.

Looks good enough to me, we can clean it up eventually anyway.

THATS IT! Thank you Lexus.

EDIT:
Liberty, any idea why my text on the Wiki is gray as opposed to black like the rest?

Yup. Don't worry about the Paradigm or Kamekh capship drawings either, I think they're a bit hard for now.   :heh:   Anyway I just finished the Mercenaries guild section of the wiki. I just added a list of possible ranks you can acquire in the guild, and the number of missions you need to advance to the next level. You guys like?

Are you guys just copypasting everything from the old wiki, or trying to rewrite it?

No and yes. We're only copy and pasting the stuff from the old wiki as "placeholders" and reference so we can rewrite it to make it more readable. The main goal of the new wiki is to improve on the content on the old wiki and "pick up from where it left off" as started before, like how I'm adding the requirements for each rank in the guilds wiki page now.    :)

I finished half of the merchant's section of the guild page now. If anyone has new ideas feel free to contribute...
